The Eye of the Cyclops from Forge of Ice

Created by Alex Bates

The Eye of the Cyclops is a system agnostic RPG sourcebook for tabletop games, and these miniatures are for use with it - as well as an assortment of other figures from the game setting, a Lost World called Azor.

Ending the year with some forward progress.

Hello everyone, 

I hope you are all having an excellent holiday season.

I had hoped to have this whole thing finished and fulfilled by now (long before now!), but it's not there yet.

However, I can end the year on a positive note with some solid forward progress - the maps are done!  The book will have two maps in it, one of the Five Cups tavern, and another of the Temple of the Eye.

I printed part of the map out at full size, just to see how it would look with minis on it - I'm pretty pleased with the result.

Adam Bradshaw has done a fantastic job with these - they look good printed in the book, but are high-resolution enough to be printed out at tabletop size, too.

Five Cups to the Goddess, an old warehouse that's been converted to a seedy tavern and inn.

I don't want to once again predict a finish date and be wrong, so I'm very hesitant to make a forecast.  All I can say is that I'm making progress, I'm working on it, and I expect to be done soon.

I'll also mention that the book will be longer than advertised in the Kickstarter - the manuscript is currently significantly longer than that, and while I'm not sure exactly what page count it's going to be edited down to, it's going to be more than 30 pages.  I've also recruited a whole posse of people to help with the packing and shipping once I've got the miniatures in hand.

I'd like to thank you all again for your patience, and I hope you all have a safe and fun New Year's Eve.

A minor update

Hello folks!

I don't really have much to say, other than I'm still alive and plugging away at this.  I hope (and expect) to have a real update with concrete info "soon", but so far all of my timeline estimates been off, so I'm reluctant to post anything more specific than "soon".

I don't like posting updates with so little content, but, I know it's better than silence, so, here it is.

I see that there are some comments on the main page - I'll address those individually shortly after this is posted.

Home from Gen Con and casting has begun!

Heya Everyone!

It was nice meeting some of you at Gen Con - thanks to the people who reached out and said hello!

I'm home, I've fought through some jet lag and con crud, and I'm back to work.

Casting has begun - the caster sent me a pic of one of the molds in this batch (mostly extras and add-ons in this particular mold, Shadow Apes and the giant Otter):

Shadow Apes, Giant Otter, and the urn that's part of the Cult Treasure.

The casting will be taking place over the next few weeks, then another week for transit back to Alaska, then maybe a week for me to get everything sorted and prepped for shipping...  Maybe that timeline is overly optimistic, but, even if we add some time to allow for the unexpected, fulfillment is approaching quickly.

I think that about covers what I've got for now!

I’ll be at Gen Con next weekend & some road notes
