    That's fantastic. Love the cleverness of it, and the paint is wonderful.

    ey up! Do you want a poster advertising WAMP at IMP? I'm sure we can find space for one somewhere.
    Also, as you're not coming I have picked out a couple of minis that I was planning to put in your goody bag - make sure I have your address and I'll put them in the post!

    Hey Brett.

    I'll be sending a little cash via the subscription thingy and just wanted to know if that's up and running properly before I did. I know I've contributed before but I figure as the new server costs more I'll help a little.

The Kickstarter Part I

by Darklord on 21-03-2015 at 09:42 AM
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.

Bringing in the New Year

by Darklord on 06-01-2015 at 08:42 AM
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

The Cost of Art (Part I: the finances)

by Darklord on 11-02-2014 at 10:58 AM
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.

Having an

Let the Games begin!

by Darklord on 30-10-2013 at 10:27 AM
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

The Darklord is rising

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,
