Sculpting Competition *NEW THREAD*
« on: October 04, 2014, 04:24:20 PM »
Hey everyone. The old thread got a lil confusing so this should be all the information in on long-ass post right at the start :)

1. If you entered the competition you should have received a code and an email from Jenn about a week ago. If you didn't please let us know eithere here or by emailing 'pictures at hasslefreeminiatures dot co dot uk'.

2. Whether you used the code or not, you also have the option of asking to purchase any of the minis that were cast that are not in the 'winners mould' (picture below). They are 3 each and again, let Jenn know (There will be a mass email with this info in coming soon, the code in 1 has been extended to cover these delays).

3. Everyone who entered will be getting the contents of the 'Winners Mould' and their own green back (Or a bag of small bits that used to be your green  :shock:). Everyone whose entry was castable will also be getting a metal casting of their own entry. If you would like to purchase more than 1, then again, let Jenn know :)

Right, this is the contents of the Winners Mould...



As mentioned above, everyone gets this :) We tried to make the pack nice and chunky to make up for the long overdue resoltuion of the contest.

Below is the long list of photos of everyone's entry that was cast, these are petty much only available for purchase right now during the clean up of the contest.
(If you right click on the image and open in a new tab you'll be able to see the name we have it registered under for ease of ordering)

IMPORTANT - The majority of the sculpts are not by professional sculptors. That means there were a large number of small issues with the moulding and casting. You 'will' need to do some clean up on these. Some have unavoidable mould lines, some have slightly warped parts etc. Please bear this in mind. his is also reflected in the price.

Ok, I think that's everything. I'll update this post if I've forgotten anything and make a new reply below to let you know what has been updated.

Hi,

I got the email saying that my figure was cast, but I don't see it on the list.

Did it not survive the casting?

It did, it was accidentally saved as a .JPG instead of a .jpg so the link wasn't working, have amended it now :)

OK, pardon me for being a thicko, but are minis cast from the contents of the winners mould going to be available to those of us who did not enter the contest? The great unwashed masses, innocently wishing to part with our cash, as in previous years of the contest?

There will be a selection of minis added to the HF store yes, for that though we need to get a set of masters ourselves, clean them, get a production moul sorted etc. So at the moment this is all only for entrants sorry. Keep an eye out later in the year though as a number of them will appear :)

Heyhey, thanks for all the effort.

I'm the kind of git who still isn't sure about how the thing works. :D Today I placed an order, and used my code. Does this automatically imply that the models from the winners mold are sent to me along with the models ordered or should I send a little email along just to be sure?

P.S.: My entry was deemed not castble right away, so I never sent in the green.

That should do the job, I even got a personal response from Jenn within 24 hours with regards to the state of my green (something I alluded to in my message, but didn't actually ask for) - on a sunday evening no less!

As much as I appreciate the sudden speed of finishing this project, be sure to take some time off every now and then too!  :wink:

Always best to err on the side of caution and email Jenn. We've started sending out the orders/packages now so to guarantee it goes out faster beter to email and clarify that you are done and won't want anything else etc. :)

Thanks everyone else for the kind words, we're at the business end of closing this up now :)

Just read the newsletter. I *think* I contacted Jenn appropriately but haven't received any dispatch notice for my order almost 2 weeks ago.

Is there a specific way we were meant to respond, besides answering the email with our choices and order number?

Did you order extras? If so we may have not had enough in to satisfy that. We're picking up the rest tomorrow hopefully, if not then wednesday.

I did order some stuff, and also some extras of my own sculpt. I received an email from Jenn, stating that my order was received in good order and that I would be receiving a Paypal invoice for the remainder (my own sculpts), but I have not received that invoice yet.

Not pushing; just making sure that nothing has been overlooked... :angel:

I believe Jenn should have emailed you (She said something about a gun, so I hope that's related to your mini and not just a random threat ;) )
