Micropanzer Wargame Studio


Micropanzer Halloween Sale

Welcome to the future! I hope you all enjoyed your hoverboard ride to the office today (unless you had to go over water, in which case, I hope you had power). For our friends over at Micropanzer, they're giving us a bit of a look into the future. Their webshop isn't fully on-line yet, but they've figured that Halloween would be a good time to get some horror-themed minis out to the masses. As such, they're running a sale.

Micropanzer to do vouchers instead of Kickstarter

Micropanzer knows some of you gamers are feeling the Kickstarter burnout. So instead of going that route, they'll be doing vouchers instead.



Source

From the announcement:

We am working on getting back up and running full speed ahead – we have so many new codes to put into production and a set amount on hand to get started . 2013 was basically a development year and am very happy with new items.

We have done the math for a kickstarter and while it does seem very appealing at first what we don’t like is that 10% or so goes to the kickstarter/Amazon people – not a huge deal for what they can help you do but we would rather pass the 10% on to the end customer to save . So from now until April 31st we will be doing my own fund raising in the form of voucher pledges – We have the last master mold being made and once they are in hand and cleaned will pull trigger on production mold - a number of production molds are all ready being worked on – so this will happen regardless of people buying vouchers –We am hoping the voucher program allows us to do it faster in one go verses over the course of the next 6 months – Plus it give you the customer a nice discount.

Project-Slipstream 28mm rights for sale from Micropanzer

Micropanzer is selling the rights to their Project Slipstream minis line. You don't see this sort of thing often. So if you're interested, now's the chance.

I am interested in finding some one that can take over and produce 28mm figures based off the project slipstream artwork.

I have over 70 unique concepts I developed as my original intent was a 28mm skirmish game.

I would consider a outright buy out or some sort of royalty deal.

I have considered a kickstarter to get the ball rolling but all the sculptors I know that could stay true to IP are busy with their own kickstarter projects.

Out right buy out would allow you to take my name off project completely and everything would be included from development art to all molds made.

Royalty deal would give you complete rights to use art in publication and I would help out in any way I can. My name would stay on project as creator.
The 15mm range has concepts based off the art and I will be keeping the line going if you are interested in a royalty deal.

I there is an interested party that is just interested in the 15mm infantry figures I would consider selling that off on its own, but names would have to be changed.

Serious parties call me

From the update:

Now is the time if you asked to be on list for next batch of stompers to put your order in. The 2nd run has less parts and has been cleaned further reducing print lines. The retail is $65.00USD

The new EDA trooper variant packs are ready to go – these offer an open face hq pack, trooper pack and a gas mask trooper pack.

The new greens are mastered and will be released next month. There will be 3 different jump troop squads each with its own helmet variant – I will also be offering a head sprue with 5 heads so you can convert your exiting troopers to match.

The store is not fully up at this time but over the next month or so will be working on getting back to 100% -- Expect to see a vast improvement in product quality as well as more variety of purchase options.

If you have an existing order and want to add some of these items to you order email me and I will add to order and send out PayPal request or you can PayPal me and include what you want in the notes.

Micropanzer Headed to Origins Game Fair

Micropanzer will be headed to Origins Game Fair in Ohio. Stop by their booth and say, "Hi!"



From them to you:

Come by booth 343 at ORIGNS GAME FAIR to see what project slipstream miniatures are all about. I also will have plenty of space ship X tiles at show as well as the new spaceship x releases.

there is a voucher program being offered until I return from origins that gives the customer a nice discount on product. More detail on this can be found in the store section along with upcoming releases.

The second run of Stomper is being produced and there is a waiting list, if you would like one and not want to wait for a 3rd run to be cast I would suggest emailing me and asking to be put on list -- I have disabled the shopping cart button on this item due to the time it takes to get any sort of quantity cast. I also will only be keeping 3 in inventory and will be more of a cast on demand item.

I want to take this time and thank all you customers that have been patient with me on order fulfillment, this is slowly getting better and will continue to improve over the next couple months as I build a better on hand inventory.

A special thanks to Adam H, S mith and Fritz who are first on the list for stompers.

From their post:

I thank every one that did a pre-order and I have started mailing out packages -- I received the all metal cast and am waiting on the resin bodies to arrive to ship out overseas packages.

The first run is almost sold out so I am keeping the squad price at 50.00 until first run is sold through ( should I over sell I will honor the price) -- I am also doing a special 3 squads for 120 ( that is 40 a squad ) The regular Price for a 5 man squad will be $55.00 and an individual model will be 12.50

I am almost finished with the new flame weapon arms ( there where print issues ) and will be offering these at a very low price once cast as I wanted to include them and not the Tesla in the squad set.

Micro Panzer update from their forums

Micro Panzer has posted an update on current state of business.

From their announcement:

I been quite busy behind the scenes lately.

4 Local Game stores want to start carrying Project slipstream minis and I have supplied Osprey Publishing with 60 demo kits to Promote Ambush Alleys Tomorrow's War -- This was a trade deal with Osprey and will have many many copies of Tomorrow's War and once in hand will be doing a promo deal where you get a free pack of alien or humans when you buy the book from me -- voucher holders can use voucher on this as well ( and get the free pack)

I did have a nice boost with the voucher program - I am not moving as fast I would like but am doing my best.
I feel like I am on a tight rope and if I fall, I fall into blackness but if I can just hold out a few more steps all will be well -- lol

I just updated the Russian Combat Armor thread - new photos I will be taking down the pre-order special by the end of week as well. Voucher holders wanting this item will still get the deal price.

http://www.micropanzer.com/forum/index.php?topic=16.0

Voucher holders -- I have working on a product spread sheet in order for you to make a list --
Also any Voucher holder that changes their mind on voucher just needs to ask for refund and I will get it back to them in a timely manor -- please remember vouchers go active 30 days purchased never expire and can be split int o smaller order lots.

I am getting ready to do a complete restock as I am wiped out -- new molds are being made to improve flow and all is going into getting existing product into production so new product can be started.

I am willing to work with brick and mortar stores offering 40% trade terms and free shipping on initial order.
I am willing to work with non brick and mortar venders as well but discount is less.

Again Thank You to all that have purchased from me these last couple months esp the vouchers and pre-orders.

If you would like to cancel a voucher or pre-order you may do so at any time just email me.

Micropanzer Wargame Studio have posted the final preview of their 15mm Amakudari Stomper. Amakudari Stomper From their announcement:
This is a beast of a walker and if you own the Strider or Seeker you know how large this kit will be by viewing the photo. I do not know how much this kit will cost to produce but figure a retail price of around 50-60 is not going to be out of question. If you bought a voucher and want one please let me know as the first run done is going to be enough to cover initial per-orders plus 20. You have one day left to purchase a voucher. The special price for this kit is going to be 45.00 - This is planned to be an all resin kit -- perhaps the smaller bits will be metal like the strider kit is.
