Latest Updates from Our Project:

Apologies for the wait

 Good morning crew! A few people have requested an update, but unfortunately there isn't an awful lot to say. The master sculpts are all with our manufacturer and in a queue awaiting production. The manufacturers are open and working a skeleton crew over shifts to keep themselves safe. Obviously this slows things down and they produce miniatures for a huge proportion of the UK metal miniatures market, so there's going to be a significant backlog for them. 

Whilst I await the metal miniatures I've home printed some bits and bobs for painting up, heres an example of one of the Dread Sea Trolls which you were able to add to your pledge via backerkit: 

If any of you have your own 3d printer I'd be happy to send any files (assuming I can find them) for what you pledged for to you whilst you await the metals - drop me an e-mail at [email protected] if you'd like to get any. 

In the meantime the "Hunted" supplement is ready bar some editing and "prettying" up. 

That's about it for now, apologies for the continued delays, I'll be back in touch as soon as there's more news.

Production and shipping update!

 Ahoy crew! Apologies for the lack of update - there hasn't been an awful lot to say, but here's where we're at:

Although our manufacturers have been forced to change the way they work and this has slowed the process down, the vast majority of our miniatures are now in the queue waiting to be manufactured and sent out to you all. 

Here are the final production quality prints which will make the masters:

Fairy 1
Fairy 2
Fairies and Whales
The 2 crews with the "missing" orc

We also have some artwork for the Hunted campaign/rule supplement 


We'll keep you updated as to when we're likely to be able to ship as soon as we can. 

In the meantime, you've likely noticed we have another Kickstarter on the go. This hasn't impacted on the delivery of THIS project as the sculptors and producers are different and the projects are parallel rather than either taking precedent to anyone.

If you haven't seen it yet, it's called The Drowned and the Damned and takes the world of Pirates of the Dread Sea to fleet level! 

Check it out here:

It would be great to see some (more) of you there.

I hope everyone is keeping well and apologies for the delay. Hopefully thing shouldn't take much longer now.

Ahoy me hearties and a very good morning in deed to you all, as we are officially funded! Huzzah! The Skrier, Orc and Goblin crew, fairies, narwhals and gorgon will now all go into production! The skrier and orc and goblin crews are ready to go already, with the fairies, narwhals and gorgon needing to be 3d printed before they can have master moulds made. We expect to be able to print in early September. The art for Hunted will also be done in September. In the meantime I will test and write the additional rules.

Thank you so much for backing our campaign and for sharing. I can't wait to ear about your crews and games!
