Back on line!

Well that's definitely the longest absence from the blog since I started writing it!

I last posted during the Kickstarted campaign, and while I failed in my bid to post every day, I did manage quite a lot of blog entries while it was running. Towards the end of the madness I just couldn't find the time to write anything here - and if I had written anything it wouldn't have made much sense due to severe lack of sleep! It was a wild and crazy month - and we're still reeling from it, but we're more grateful that I can possibly say to everyone who supported us. As soon as the campaign ended, we were caught up in house moving (and building!) madness, and we are still jot quite through that yet. I'm sitting in the new studio surrounded by boxes that need to be unpacked and desks that need to be assembled. We are back on-line though which is a huge relief - having no reliable internet connection for a couple of months tested us to the limit. Having nowhere to call home can be coped with, but take away the internet and everything pales into insignificance! We're in the new house now though (with internet there too!), so things should return to something close to normal soon.

Battle for Alabaster in 100% finished and waiting to be loaded onto boats in China - as soon as it touches down the Kickstarter orders will be shipped and dispatched, followed shortly afterwards by the regular retail release. I have the first complete copy sitting on my desk, and I have to say we're absolutely delighted with it. Check out the short unboxing video we posted on our Youtube channel.

We have also been hard at work creating all the new content generated by the Kickstarter campaign - with some really great sculpts being made and exciting scenarios written. I'll post some of the material here as soon as I get the chance.

In the mean time, we have just rolled out a great new miniature for the Limited Edition Resin series. Hathya is another great Allan Carrasco sculpt - with that natural brilliance for capturing anatomy and pose that I think makes his talents unique. Check out the pictures below.

Now things are more settled at Studio McVey HQ, I'll try and post more regularly again - there are lots of exciting things happening here, so there's no shortage of things to talk about.
