Well its not even 8am here at Wamp towers but I have already spent an hour and a half on Kickstarter things. But I thought I would take a few minutes to write a little bit about my experience so far. We are now past halfway and a week to go.
Currently we are past the £19,500 mark and should hit a mind numbing £20,000 later today. Its certainly a long way from where I expected to be.
Months ago (or is it years now?!!) when I first chewed the idea in my head the main goal was production.
Happy New Year Wampers!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. This time of year is traditionally one of new beginnings and for many of us a time to plan the year ahead, to dream of dream, create bucket lists or just vow to do some things better. Inevitably we fail on many but the belief is there.
While I don't hold with New Year resolutions myself it is a good time to spring clean the to do list.
So with that I have taken a little time to assess
I have been asked a few times on the process of commissioning a sculpt. So here is my experience and thoughts on the process.
I will start by explaining that I have not really gone down the usual route but it may be of interest anyway.
The first thing to note is that commissioning a sculpt can be very expensive. The top artists can easily charge £1000 for a 32mm sculpt. Add in more complexity and that could rise and that's just for the sculpt.
So after my last blog post there seemed to be some positive vibes coming from you guys so I thought i would tease you a little more with some things coming up.
Firstly I have begun work on a game. I wont say too much but I will say its not a skirmish,battle type game but it does involve miniatures and plenty of Wamp Humour (beware the monkeys in Fez's!)
Initial development has begun and I have a Wamp regular on board helping with the game mechanics. I am hoping for a release (most
It has been 2 years since my last confession.....
Well not quite but almost. Real life and some unfortunate wamp related events have kept me away from writing my blog but I do enjoy them when I can though admittedly its never with any frequency despite what I tell myself!
In fact a combination of events which most of you are aware of did lead my to seriously consider whether to shut Wamp down. I was left with a distasteful experience of the 'admin' side of the hobby,
