Mini-production news! And Hurricane Ian update...

First up, thank you for the well wishes!
As you might have seen on my social media, my town was in the path of Hurricane Ian and I was without power for a couple of days. It was pretty scary and I ended up with quite a bit of water damage in my home - including my studio. I lost a lot of packing materials and some books but nothing truly irreplaceable. Overall, I got off easy. I won't be back to 100% until after the carpets can be cleaned but the waiting list for cleaning services is months long.
Storms aside, the mini production is going really well! I received this update from the casting company on Monday...
"We have the printing almost wrapped up for all the print sprues and the resin casting is underway. I believe they have all the molds completed and they are also queued up to go into our pressure pots as they start freeing up from the last project that was being cast."
I'll keep you all posted! as I learn more.
Here's a look at the labels for the individual boxes for the minis...

Production update and revised stat cards!

Hi! The production is going great! The casting company is working on the minis and the labels for each box are also in production.
I also want to share a preview of the revised Stat Card artwork. Since starting the Intoximancy campaign, I've been trying my hand at digital painting and I've been really happy with the results. So much so, that I decided to redo all the stat card artwork as digital paintings...
I'll keep everyone posted as the production continues to come together!
Waddlebottom photos, production update!

I wanted to share these photos of the assembled Waddlebottom mini. The amount of detail is astounding!
The tiny figure is in five pieces - the base, body-with feet, each wing, and the head. The pieces assembled so easily with the only tricky bit (for me) being attaching head. It's very small and I couldn't decide if I wanted to maybe change the direction he's looking. :)
The next update will be a look at the final versions of the character/stat-block cards.
An Intoximancy update
The Kickstarter for the Intoximancy pdf/zine is going ridiculously well. If you recall, Intoximancy was simply going to be a stretch-goal bonus PDF for this campaign which we never quite unlocked. I quickly put it together as a standalone offering for Kickstarter's ZineQuest event and it's now on track to surpass this campaign in number of backers and dollars raised. It's crazy! If you haven't checked it out, here's a link...
And yesterday was my birthday, so here's a painting of Sir Quimp (based on the mini sculpt) with a slice of cake. :)

I'm happy to report that thecampaign is on schedule! TheSTL/Digital files for the minis- including Waddlebottom - were sent out today! If your pledge included STLs and you didn't see that email from me, pop me a note and we'll sort it out!

Backerkit is locking orders now...
Hi. You should be receiving an email from Backerkit about locking orders - this is their system giving everyone a last-chance to correct their details and adjust their orders. In around 48 hours, all orders will be locked and cards will be charged for any add-ons selected through Backerkit.
Which means on Wednesday, digital rewards will start getting delivered!
The plan is to distribute STL files starting on Wednesday! PDFs will start getting distributed over the weekend (I split them up to minimize strain on my server and to make sure everything is working the way it should.)
Whichalso means that on Wednesday, orders for the physical minis will be placed with the casting company!
I'm so excited for you to get your rewards! :)
And now, Intoximancy...
As I mentioned previously, while this campaign didn't manage to unlock the Intoximancy stretch goal, the work on the standalone Kickstarter for it is going really well! Making it a standalone project meant I really had to expand it with more spells, creatures, and magic items and get all fancy with the production. Here's a look at the latest art. I've never done a digital painting like this and I'm super happy with how its coming together...
The Intoximancy campaign will launch on Wednesday. I'm hoping a lot more gamers and TTRPG fans will discover The Middle Age through it. I even got a fancy URL for the project...
