Latest Updates from Our Project:

almost 2 years ago – Tue, Aug 13, 2019 at 01:35:11 AM

Hello all,

We are getting questions through the comments and through DMs, so we thought we'd answer some of them here as well, so that all backers know what's going on (and we've ensure that this update is public so it is visible to our late backers). We never want to be a company that doesn't respond or communicate, we really don't. We are trying to get on and get the product finished and shipped out to you, which in turn may have reduced our time available for answering questions or comments. As in previous updates, we can only apologise for the delay in this project, we underestimated the time on the resin casting. 

Please remember that this is Kickstarter and we are a new business unlike some who use it as a type of online shop to promote the games. Even big companies can be 6 to 12 months late, even with experience of multiple Kickstarter projects before. 

This project will ship. This project will be delivered. We will be posting photos of everything that is completed by the end of this week. 

Quite a few people say that we haven't explained what the delay is, but we have, it's the amount of time that the resin casting is taking. What we are finding is that we can de-mould the models too soon as we get distortion otherwise. 

We have also been asked why can we not send out the pledges that are ready to ship? We have only got the good deal on the shipping costs if we send them all out together, in bulk. If we split the shipping, the price increases and then has a knock-on effect elsewhere.

Another question is why can't we provide a specific date. In answer, we don't want to give you an exact date as we know if we go slightly past that, we know we're going to upset you guys.  

Addresses in Backerkit. The shipping addresses are locked, but if you need to update them, please let us know.

We are trying to be as open and communicative as possible and we really can't wait for you to get the miniatures and see how you paint them and use them.

Production Update
almost 2 years ago – Sat, Jul 06, 2019 at 02:46:59 PM

Thank you for your patience guys.

We are still progressing with the resin casting, about 75% through casting the gallows (which has been the main issue)

The plastic bases are due to arrive with us early next week, so we will proceed with packing.

Don't worry if you have a last minute change of address, it's not final until we enter it into the courier's system and we'll send you a notification before this is done.

Again, thank you for your patience, we are not far away now.


Production and Shipping Update
about 2 years ago – Fri, Jun 07, 2019 at 02:04:46 AM


We know that you are all eagerly awaiting the miniatures and we're all hands to the deck on trying to get everything finished and on their way.

We've now switched to casting the remaining smaller items which frees up the pressure cast systems for the larger items. 

We would like to apologise to you all because we can't give you an exact date yet, but we are now estimating 4 weeks for shipping. 

We realise that some people are disappointed that we've gone past the estimated delivery date, but in the end, it was an estimate and it's not always that simple to get it exact. The majority of Kickstarters I've backed personally, have been a lot later than this. But saying that, we are doing our best to get it out to you as soon as possible. We have learnt from this process and have allowed extra time for Townsfolk II, which is due to ship on time. 

We can't thank you enough for your patience.

Monday Motivation

Hello all,

We thought we'd give you a quick update on what's going on at Z1 Design. 

In the workshop, we have pulled all the guys onto the resin casting to try and speed this up as much as we can, as even with the extra machine it's still a slow process. There have been a few folk asking why we can't send out pledges that don't include resin products, but all main pledges include free resin items, so this isn't possible. 

In the office, the masters are being printed for Townsfolk II and we have accounted for the delay in Townsfolk, so should be on time with Townsfolk II. 

So, that's what 20,000+ minis and bases look like?
