Scrunt name generator debacle

16 Apr

We have just been in fits of laughter after trying to develop a Scrunt name generator for a Kickstarter reward. I wouldn’t have thought it so difficult but ours is truely awful, I worked out a multiple choice and assigned elements ect to the answer, so when I asked Bob to take the quiz, this is the name it generated Dwalin Owl Silver Oak, pretty bad I tweaked it a bit and James was slightly better he got Ori Stone Heart. I think we’d better stick to making miniatures lol

Stretchgoal Amounts Reduced!

7 Apr

Good News, we’ve just made those stretchgoals more achievable, the Argonauts stretchgoal has been reduced by £183 to £3,867, the Cenobites reduced by £498 to £5,102, The Prussian Colonials by a wopping £1,577 to £5291, I won’t list the others but the final stretchgoal that will unlock everything has dropped by a massive £2,562 and is now £6,236.
We have been able to do this by reducing Bob’s design fee from the first sets and removing it altogether from set Four onwards, this means it was not only the design fee we were able to deduct but also the largest proportion of the reduction came from removing the expenses for casting, postage allowance and Kickstarter fees that are generated to pay for those design fees.
So we are hoping we have done enough to make all of Bob’s wonderful sculpts available through this Kickstarter. We’ve reached almost £7,000 for the previous Kickstarter so we have every hope we can make it this time.

So take a look at our kickstarter and tell us what you think  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/433105762/olleys-armies-presents-armies-of-the-scrunt-empire

Or if you like charts and graphs, go and have a look at the Kicktraq stats it’s just like the election predicting the outcome http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/433105762/olleys-armies-presents-armies-of-the-scrunt-empire/

PS. For anyone not familiar with crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, crowdfunding is when you pool contributions from various people (called backers) to support a project in exchange for rewards. Kickstarter is the most widely used crowdfunding website and on Kickstarter, if the funding goal isn’t reached on the end date, no one is charged a penny, and no rewards are distributed.
