GC Update, 15mm Stuff & Forum Changes

So I removed the stuff from the forum that just isn't necessary at this point.  From now on we will be focusing on the minis and just the minis.  Also, all of our concept areas are now available to be viewed by guests.  You still have to register to post comments, which I strongly encourage you to do :)

I heard from Chris at Ravenstar Studios and detailing has begun on our 30mm greatcoats.  I am still confident that I'll have some pre-order info in a few weeks.  Stay tuned...

I also decided this week to start concepts for a few 15mm releases.  Check out more about that in the new 15mm section of the forum.  I'll be looking into a sculptor and possibly doing these in metal, which means finding a casting service to handle that.

Hopefully by now people who check this blog out know how much I value feedback from end users.  I got some great responses from people over the weekend and Mad Robot will be starting work on a new alien race line for 15mm.  If the demand is there, maybe for 28mm as well.  I won't reveal much more at this point, other than to say "keep your beak to the grindstone..."



Greatcoats Progress Report 7/16

The sculpts for our first offering are coming along nicely, we look to have them completed by the end of July.  I'll be getting pre-order information posted in the next few weeks.  I can also give some specific details about what is immediately coming after the Greatcoats figures:

     Packs & Accessories
     Alternate Heads (no gas masks)
     Assault Weapons (grenade launcher, flame thrower, plasma rifle, melty rifle)

These should come together quickly as they are smaller in scope than the main sculpts.

After that, we'll start addressing a Heavy Weapons Section for the Greatcoats.

By the way, does anyone have an idea for a home world or unit designation for these guys?  I'm a little tired of "Greatcoats".  Suggestions are welcomed.  If you want to get further involved in the look of our future products, head over to the forum, register, and get involved.  I'd love to hear what you have to say.



Opinion Poll

We'd like some input on what should come next for the Greatcoats.

What Should Come Next for Greatocats?


What's Next?

Just put up some new topics in the forum to discuss what's coming next from Mad Robot Miniatures.  If you want to have some input or suggest an idea, go to the forum and be sure register.  When you register, you get access to the Concept Room, which is where prospective new ideas are revealed and discussed.
