Ever started a project and......

found out that is is much more involved than you though?

Well with the Super 3D dungeon boards Kickstarter it has definitely been that! We are coming up to the end of it with the last few painted boards shipping out soon. 

I plan on putting together a more thorough post with some costs break downs to give everyone an idea of how everything went. 

Qucickly though here is a fun picture with some minis while I had 18 or so painted boards together in a group :)

Final stretch! More add-ons, molds, and castings.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/92980796/super-3d-dungeon-boards

We are coming up on just over two days left! 

I put up the add-on for the resin bases for miniatures. As a $15k stretch goal one set of these will be included for free with any pledge over $100!

We received the vacuum chamber from the metal fab shop and have started to make some of the larger molds.

Picture of the glove mold being made of one of the board tiles. Multi-layer glove molds take a few days to make. Hopefully I can have a board cast and painted before the end of the KS, but these things take time and we are moving into molds for final production on all the tiles.

Picture of the mold for the flat tile board. 

A cast resin flat board and one with a little paint on it.
