Terragnosis will be cancelling their Sulphur Kickstarter campaign on the 4th, citing a lull in pledges.

From the announcement:

Well it seems that for what ever reasons this kickstarter has stalled.. We had high hopes for this, but alas its not going to happen the way we wished. So from Monday 4th we will close the kickstarter..

For those of you who have backed us, clearly you are interested, so here is the plan… We will be releasing all these products, with or without the kickstarter. It will take longer to get them out there without the initial cash input, but it is our intention to release them anyway…

If you are a backer at the time the kickstarter ends you will receive a 20% off voucher to use in our online store. You can use it on anything, including our ruination game and figures, but we hope you will use it on our first Sulphur releases to help pave the way for more sulphur goodies.

    I think they’re missing where people toss in on the last day. That’s fairly standard for KS. This makes me think these guys have some management issues to resolve.. kinda glad I didn’t toss in.. though I was considering it :/

    • Same here 4tonmantis, but I guess they may have got a little disheartened with the other big Kickstarters around, Mars Attacks and Shadows of Brimstone. Mega Man got a bit delayed also and it would not surprise me if it were not for similar instances tbh.

      It’s a crying shame though as these miniatures looked great!! It is still open until the 4th November though, so it could be an attempt to get a few people excited in order to get it backed, which I really do hope it does. 🙂

        Mars Attacks has pretty much stalled out as well.. granted they are funded several times over, but the pledge and amounts have both essentially stalled out on that. I have no doubt it’ll hit a final 48 surge.. which is kinda the point.

        The update says these models are coming out either way.. and it sounds extremely fatalistic.. I can’t really see it helping in any way. The models looks really good but another problem they have is that they plunked down right at the end of Bones II.. and pretty much concurrently with a Mantic KS. If there are two companies that are fairly frequent to KS that you want to avoid overlap with, those are the 2.

        Battle Systems is coming out with their pre-punched styrene terrain in a few months.. I’m hoping those guys are more patient than this because I really want to see that one succeed (as I did this one :/ )

      My theory is that you need to be at least 85% funded for the last 48h push to bring you dough. I think that, unfortunately, this was the right decision to make.

  • I have a problem with all and any companies that don’t mention the specifics of 3D-prints. “High quality” means nothing. Is it SLS with 0.15mm layer thickness or is SLA with 0,016mm thickness? Frankly SLS is not good enough. So many kickstarters have used the low end “High frosted detail a la shapeways” method and posted really shitty pictures in which you can’t really tell. Terragnosis posted crap pictures of the vehicle prints and boasted of a quality that wasn’t visually distinguishable. I have learned the hard way that quality is something subjective rather than objective in these terms and I am sorry but I haven’t been given any proof of that quality. Furthermore I am not familiar enough with the company’s products or know of any people/reviews which I trust to go by.

    More specifics people please – and more pictures of higher quality and higher resolution.

    The 3D-models look superb and I’d love to get my hands on some of them for real – if they are done well. Until I can see actual pictures it’s a no-go for me.

    Totally agree. I just didn’t feel it was a trust worthy investment…plus their costs were insane! ! They made GW look cheap

    If you’re closing it, close it. This looks like nothing more than an attempt to blackmail people on the fence with an “if you haven’t got your pledge in by monday we’re talking our ball and going home”.

    Reinforced now by the lastest update, which demands you be a backer to see it.

      lol, yeah.. they’ve talked me out of ever buying anything of theirs.. ever..
