Update #16

American Civil War - Part Two

Hello,

 

A few days ago Kickstarter reached its first decade of existence. Happy Birthday, Kickstarter!

Sixteen million backers and 160.000 projects funded are exceptional results. A professional team, a beautiful community and a great platform with so many unique projects. Thank you for your support in making our project come to life!

Coming back to WoFun Minis, we will end today our incursion into American Civil War history by presenting to you the ultimate add-ons of ACW Collection.

In the last week, we completed the infantry, and we designed new Minis representing artillery, cavalry, and leaders.







But, before jumping straight to the usual weekly notes, we would like to share with you a few pieces of information about the current status of our project.

Today we completed the 3rd collection included in the consultative re-design process.  Since the Kickstarter project ended we manage to create or re-design in total 1346 individual figurines, with more than 175 unique outfits, for the first three collections included in our project: Antiquity, AWI and ACW.






We successfully concluded last week, the discussions regarding the expansion of WoFun Minis production line. Starting June the new partnership will be functional, and we will begin the production of the KS rewards.  

The extensive development of the collections took more time than we initially estimated and our website is still work in progress. Regarding this topic, we are slightly behind schedule. Consequently, in parallel with the design of Napoleonic Collection, we will allocate more resources to our website project and the upcoming pre-sales campaign, where we will include all the add-ons presented in the last updates.  



                         Here are the minis we designed in the last week:  













 

                     Next week we will decide which regiments will be part of the ACW Collection Kickstarter reward. The collection has 440 Minis, and we intend to include in it most of the regiments you mentioned in the messages, but if you prefer other troops too, please let us know.  We will then move forward with the design process to the next WoFun Minis collection: Napoleonic Collection.  





Until then, we thank you for your support and advice, and we wish you a great weekend!  

All the best,

The WoFun Team

Update #15

American Civil War - Part One

Hello,

Creating the AWI Collection was an excellent teamwork experience. But time goes by fast, and there are less than 60 days left until we will start rewards production. So, today we will move forward, to the next miniatures collection included in Bring History into Your Home project: American Civil War.  

This week we focused on ACW infantry regiments. We adjusted the existing figurines and designed new troopers, flag holders and musicians. We are still working at a few more infantry regiments for the next update, Confederate rebels (dressed in civilian clothes), and also infantry sergeants and troops commanders.  

Here are the results from the last week:












In the next update, besides the infantry regiments we mentioned upper, we will design artillery, cavalry, and leaders, and we will present the structure of the ACW KS reward.    

We will post the next update in two weeks from now. Next week we will have a few days off, due to the Labor Day and the working schedule it is too short for a complete weekly update. Consequently, we will make the next update about ACW Collection on the 9th of May, before moving forward to Napoleonic Collection.  

Until then, if you have suggestions for new regiments or regimental structure please let us know.  

Thank you,

The WoFun Team

Update #14

American War of Independence - part three

Hello,

We will end today the journey into 18th-century American history, with the last update about the American War of Independence Collection. Starting next week, we will make a jump of almost a century in time, on the same continent, to the American Civil War Collection.  

This week news:

- We created new regiments representing Continental militia, New York grenadiers, Hessian fusiliers, Artillery, the British cavalry, Leaders and, we recolored a few regiments presented in the earlier updates.  














- We decided which uniforms will be included in the American Revolution Collection - Kickstarter Reward.




- Following your recommendations, we decided about how many Minis to include each collection's add-on. All the regiments presented in the last updates will be offered on the website as a AWI collection's add-on.


The infantry add-on contains:  

           - 24 WoFun Minis 28mm, or  

           - 48 WoFun Minis 18 mm  

and it will be offered in 3 variants:

A. Regular Infantry add-on

         - includes 20 WoFun Minis 28 mm representing regular soldiers and 1 drummer, 2 flag holders, and 1 captain, in total 24 figurines  

         - or 40 WoFun Minis 18 mm representing regular soldiers and 2 drummers, 4 flag holders, and 2 captains,  in total 48 figurines.

B. Light Infantry & Grenadiers add-on

         - 12 grenadiers and 12 light infantry WoFun Minis 28 mm,  in total 24 figurines

         - or 24 grenadiers and 24 light infantry 18 mm WoFun Minis, in total 48 figurines.

C. Mixed Infantry add-on  

         - contains 9 regular infantry + 1 captain, 1 drummer and 1 flag holder + 6 grenadiers + 6 light infantry WoFun Minis 28 mm,  in total 24 figurines

         - or 20 regular infantry + 1 captain, 1 drummer, and 2 flag holders + 12 grenadiers + 12 light infantry WoFun Minis 18 mm, in total 48 figurines.


The cavalry add-on  contains:

- 12 horsemen WoFun Minis 28 mm,  

- or 24 horsemen WoFun Minis 18 mm.


The artillery add-on contains:

- 12 artillery servants + 3 cannons WoFun Minis 28 mm

- or 16 artillery servants + 4 cannons WoFun Minis 18 mm.
















- Following your suggestions, we designed two different flags for each infantry regiment.  Here are a few British regiments represented with 28 mm Minis: 24 regular infantry, 6 light infantry, 6 grenadiers, including 1 captain, 1 drummer and two flag holders.  





In the messages you wrote to us, you mentioned about changing the postures of the light infantry and to include in the collection a higher variety of poses. In this first step of our consultative re-design process, we are focusing more on uniforms, the army structure and content of the packages.  

After 15th May we will spend more time on creating different poses, before making the final templates for production.   In parallel with the design of the uniforms, we are also working on several software improvements that can help us to create a much higher variety of postures.  

We will design the light infantry in a different posture, and we will also make minis in shooting pose, both kneeling and standing, reloading and, other postures. Here are a few examples of poses that we designed in the last months:  






We thank you for accompanying us in this journey into 18th-century history. Special thanks to Asko Nisula, Jim Westerfield, David Lycett,  Shawn Rowlands,  Edward Strecker,  Andy Easten and Lucas Lavadour for feedback and guidance.

Wishing you a great weekend,

The WoFun Team

Update #13

American Revolutionary War - part two

Hello,

Following the last week update, we continued creating new regiments for the American Revolution Collection. All the regiments presented are in beta version. We will recolor, until the next update the Hessian Jaegers, and the Green Mountain Rangers, posted in the 12th update.  

This week we added more regiments of British Infantry, we also created the Scottish Infantry, the French Infantry, Native Americans, new Continental Army regiments and we modeled the beta version of the flag holders and the drummers.
























In the next week, we will complete the American Revolution Collection with cavalry, artillery and leaders and we will add flag holders and drummers to all the regiments included in the collection.  

We will also decide what minis will be included in the Kickstarter reward or in add-ons.  

Thank you for the feedback you sent to us after the last update. If you have preferences about regiments you would like to be included in the Kickstarter reward please let us know.  

Have a great weekend,

Lucian

Update #12

American War of Independence

Hello,

Last week was a very productive week for WoFun Team.  The production tests we made on Monday, had promising results and we think that it is possible to start delivery earlier than August. We also implemented the structure of our new website, and soon we will present to you the new WoFun web-shop. Starting Monday our actual web site will be offline for the next fifteen days, until the new one will take its place.

During this week we designed new regiments for American Revolution Collection, and we modified the existing minis to look more realistic and historically accurate.  

Here are the minis we worked at this week:





















In the upcoming week, we will continue designing new regiments for AWI Collection based on the messages you wrote to us in the last days. French and Native American troops will be added in the following days along with 42nd Black Watch, Highlanders,  Loyalists Militia, Butler's Rangers, heavy artillery, flag-holders, drummers and leaders.








I wish you a great week-end !

Best Regards,

Lucian
