New stuff and some details
Hi folks. Here is a pic of some renders sent to me by one of the designers. his name is Mark Guarnieri and he has been working to develop some infantry. I am planning on tackling these soon. Just want to iron out any problem areas first. I like the generic feel to them. Seem to be perfect for unsuspecting guards to be ambushed.
In the meantime I keep working on 1 part female troopers as time allows. Which means very slowly.
I want to clarify the contest idea I had. It is going to be awarded to the 2000th package I ship. Right now I am somewhere between 1000-2000. It is going to be awarded to the first web store order after 2000 is reached. You can not go by the order number, since about 90% of orders come from e-bay. E-bay sales count as packages but will not be able to win the 100 sprues. Only stuff from the web store counts.
AFTER the winner is notified then they will decide what they want.
This is not a contest for the best idea for a product, it is kind of the reverse of that. You win first and then you decide what you want.
I hope that clears things up a bit. One of the issues I ran in to right from the start was people offering ideas for things to make. Once they told me, there was almost an obligation to reward them for their idea, even if I had already made CAD files of the exact same thing and had them setting on the hard drive. Ideas have value, but the development is where the real labor lies. The tough ones were the generic stuff- "Hey, I told you to make scantily clad Amazon women with spears. Now that you did it, I demand compensation for this." Bad situation.
Ok- just had to get that out there before there was some confusion. I got some entrants for the idea contest and realized I had made a serious mistake in explaining things. There is no idea contest, it is a reward for customers who have been bothered to follow along and watch this slow process unfold.
Ok, back to work again.
