Hi everyone, Fausto's here.
Long post ahead, sorry for all the mistakes done.
When I started Abyssoul I had a clear vision in my mind, with in my mind the idea of doing something different. Step by step I am trying to improve and do always more stuff, but I decided to don't show anything until Zensh would be shipped. Why? Because in my plan the shipping should be started now (mid may-first week of June).
Actually, after a month, the last caster told mr that for various reasons he was not able to cast it. The best way to solve this for both of us was to find another caster.
This kind of things can happens in this small industry, but the best thing is to solve any problem at best.
In the next days the master will be shipped to another caster that can cast it without problems. Everything will be ready in the end of June, and you will receive update in the meanwhile.
I am deeply sorry for all the problems that went out, this is not the way of work that I want. For me, for Abyssoul, but above all for you.
There will be no more preorder done in this way in the future, just "normal" release or kickstarter.
All the customers that preordered Zensh-iku will receive a massive 50% discount on the bust version when available (the master is already printed, still needs some parts).
Sorry again, with all my heart.
Thanks for the patience, you are the best customers.
Update for Zensh-iku:
Actually the piece is in casting process and some pieces (the heads) are a bit complicated and the caster is trying to find the perfect way to keep our famous best quality.
Sorry for the delay and thanks for the patience
The preorder of Zensh-Iku will start at 20.00 CET 29/03/2019 on the website www.abyssoul.com
We, at Abyssoul HQ, always wanted to create something that comes always from the heart. Those are hard times for the miniature companies, due to a lot of problems.
The main one are the recasters.
Other people spent really a lot of words on them, and we think that any more words would be unnecessary.
I (Fausto) know that this can be an expensive hobby, and that is the reason of why I really wanted to create something that I think will be really appreciated!
It's time for a super offer :)
You don't have ANY EXCUSE to buy a recasted product now!
For the first 80 customers there is the chanche to add ONE, or TWO bust at an incredible reduced price!
You decide your combo, it is all in your hands!
It is our way to thank all the people that believe in us. Thanks
ps: We are really AMAZED from the love that we are receiving in those days, with thousands of intereactions in our social media.
Thanks from the heart, I really hope that many of you will chose to support us!
Fellow Sailors, arrrrrrh!
Some of you have the chance to see some stuff on Fb, so there is no reason to don't publish it here!
I will show you more and more in the future, at least I will do my best for it :)
It is still on progress, and I can't wait to show youthe amazing sculpt that will be done by Valerio Carbone!
This concept is done by Mirko Failoni, an amazing artist!
What do you think about it?
Finally we are back, after some good holidays!
How was yours? Hope the best too!
We spent a lot of time drinking rum and living our life as a pirate, and for this new season we have a lot of news:
- First of all, Akk copies will be ready for shipping in the next 2 weeks if all goes good. I know that there is some delay and I am so sorry for it. My first aim is to give an excellent product with an excellent service, but sometimes stuff takes more time then expected... hope you will understand!
- ABYSSOUL WILL BE A BOARDGAME! Excuse me for the caps lock here, but I am so happy and excited for this. Actually we are working too on the beta rules and there are some great idea. If you have something useful for us...send it! It will be an honour :)
- We have a final website! Your feedback will be really appreciated! With this new version you will be able to find all the combo pack in a dedicated section, with also some great new concepts and artworks. I am so proud of it, it was worth of all the work that were done.
- A new sculpt is on the way, this time we will have a bust version and also a full 75 figure for the first time! It is amazing, can't wait to let you see it. Actually it is the craziest stuff planned for Abyssoul!
- I will do another giveaway soon...stay tuned!
Random Update about Miniatures!
First time that I post something on the webstore, but I prefer to use this platform for messages less frequent, but more important.
Finally we have a definitive package! I love it and it is really great to transmit the feeling that I want! An elegant wax seal keep the rough rope, and inside the box there is the miniature/bust with all the most delicate parts in a cotton bag. Also you will find some beatiful gadgets. What else?
Then, some random stuff.
There is a great artist, Michael Katchan, that is working to make some great artworks for Abyssoul. You can see something up here, and all this is done with the art direction of Davide Rapazzini. Can't wait to see all this finished! And you?
All this stuff is done to make Abyssoul better, with more original contents and always higher quality.
In a double way:
- I am planning to release the next piece (a dwarf in a 75mm and a bust version of the same miniature) with kickstarter, doing some add ons with the older stuff and some stretch goals for making new stuff. What do you think?
One will be a bust version of the logo...with some different details. Something really crazy, I think you will like it!
The concept will be ended really soon, and the sculpt will be done by Palomita A Punto Efe. An amazing artist!
Here's a sneak peak of some part of him!
And also, 90% there will be something really BIG for kickstarter. Let's cross the fingers!
That's all for today, thanks and bye bye!
