@Malika That is exactly what I am talking about. Its like, hey, I can pay you a one-time fee for these $800 worth of models, but then I can't commission anything else for probably 4 months, and these models won't be released for another 8 months VS. just create a Patreon and get steady income and pe...

Sure, since you asked I just posted one. I needed an excuse to slack off from work tonight anyway.

On the 2020 thread I was asked to give a 2021 update. I had to think a bit about what to say in an update for this year. For now I can give a bit of a mini-update, no pun intended. It is hard to give a concise picture of what is going on with the business, the why’s and what not. It ends up covering...

So, I think my way of doing business does not mesh well with selling or licensing files, and is kind of a dying model. These days I think creators selling directly to folks is kind of the standard, at least for digital files. If I was a creator, then I would definitely do it though, but it just feel...

Thanks for the kind review. I have also heard generally good things about uniz zmud. I have been using Siraya Navy Grey, which has been working quite nicely. I will say that for some of the 6mm infantry I have printed using the Sonic Mini 4k, I am having a hard time distinguishing the prints from th...

Thanks guys, disheartened is a good word for it!

Just a tough time in general for everyone I guess, also feels like a time of great change in general from a wargaming perspective with the rise of Patreons, 3d printing, etc. Things will stabilize eventually.

I definitely have plans for 6mm fantasy still. Way, way too many plans, totally unsupported by demand or reason. A number of things have caused delays on my end. My casting machine died, the fix was expensive. The whole Brexit thing and setting up the Etsy store, a nightmare. Son to be made worse in...

I'm not sure about the long-term longevity of the prints. I have seen some people echo your concern about prints weakening or getting brittle over time. I would think the primary issue would be if you left them in sunlight for months on end...but if you have them in a drawer or prime them, I don't s...

I definitely won't be able to match the detail of Excellent Miniatures, they are using some $10k Asiga machines I think. For the New Terra MBT specifically, sales look like: Year 1: 20 Year 2: 10 Year 3: 24 Year 4: 19 Which is actually fairly unusual, as the first year I typically sell the lion's sh...

For some added color, I recently sent a new 6mm scifi release to a moldmaker. The high-res prints alone cost me about $400, the molds will run me at least another $8-$900, and then of course the cost to have a single MBT cast will probably be 75 cents to a 1 dollar given the rise in tin costs. So th...

This will be a ramble-ish post. I have been running the business for over 10 years now, which is crazy to me. in that time I have seen the wargaming landscape change, drastically at times. The rise of crowdfunding, the explosion in 3D sculpting both from professionals and hobbyists, the impact of ar...

It took a while to actually get them to recognize that I was a real business, that part was difficult. Other than that, the planning of the rewards and the number crunching takes some time, and actually setting up the campaign page maybe took me a day and a half. Altogether, not a huge ton of work. ...
