Delay of Beta release... but not for long!

While our whole team was feverishly working down to the wire, we regret to report that there will be a delay in sending out early beta access to our character creator. We'd hoped against hope that we could make it in just under the wire, but due to the implementation of some important new features we have just a bit more testing and a few more updates to do before we can release it into the wild for you guys to enjoy.Try not to despair, beta need to cook for just a bit longer. We still aim to get log-in details out to all of our Kickstarter backers by the end of the week. From the whole Hero F ... Read more

Nothing like a good death spore.

Update 21 brings you pics of the monk, an unlocked zombie 3pack and the newest stretch goal, Death Spores! Death spores are a favourite past time of many liches. It can take decades to train the fungi, but through careful grooming it can start to take on a corpse like appearance. Death spore sculpture is considered to be an art form which can take centuries to master. And indeed the fruit of this labour is the delight of seeing its hapless victims fall prey and be consumed by the angry fungus. Aaah death spores. The zombie 3pack has been unlocked! you can now add it to your order as an add on. ... Read more

Back From the Factory

Just back from the factory, and pleased to share our progress. All tooling is now complete. As you’ll remember, the expense of the solid steel molds required to produce Dwarvenite were the reason we needed Kickstarter (and your incredible support) to launch Game Tiles. These molds are big and expensive – but now they’re all complete. In fact, the final Kickstarter numbers were so big that we needed duplicate molds of the top few pieces to meet demand. Here’s a photo showing one of the Chamber of Sorrows molds – it weighs about 200 pounds. Even with costly molds and equipment, Game Tiles s ... Read more

Update time! Surveys all sent out & Painted Studio Model Pictures

Hi everyone! Wow, it was only a week ago last night that the funding portion of this project came to a close. What a ride it was. It seems like it was ages ago for some reason.I think it is such an immersive experience during the funding portion that once it ends it is like getting back home from a very long gaming convention where you are mentally exhausted (in a good way of course) and physically tired. I know it is most likely only this extreme for me as the project creator, but I know from talking with other folks involved with Dark Sword, they were glad to see it end on such a high note a ...

International Shipping - UPDATE

Here's a quick update for those of you who have been on the fence in reference to international shipping. As you know, I have been looking into every possible avenue to make overseas shipping as cost effiective as possible. With that in mind, we'll be bringing in a part-time assistant for several weeks to contact each of our international backers via email individually with exact shipping quotes - one from USPS, UPS (where available), DHL (where available), and FedEx (where available). So the process will work like this - if you're an international backer, choose your pledge level and your pl ... Read more

GOOD. BAD. I'M THE GUY WITH THE FLAMING SWORD.

THE ANGEL AND THE DEMON Here we are at last, the last few big monsters from Heresy's past. And what a pair they are. Always designed as counterpart models that paired up to form a vignette of Light vs Dark, The Angel of Righteous Anger and the Fallen One known as B'Hakoth The Destroyer were fabulous models, but somewhat awkward due to the fact that being metal made them a little top heavy if you were moving them about at all. In resin, they will be a modeller's dream, easily converted and easily adapted to any diorama you want to pose them in. I'm even going to make a special linking piece so ... Read more
