Hey, all. Hopefully someone around here can clue me in on this. I'm assuming the both Super Dungeon Explore and the newly funded Sedition wars are both injection molded plastic but wasn't real sure. I see the success of Sedition Wars as very encouraging for independent game designers and it validates Kickstarter as a legit source of funding for HUGE projects.
I know a little about the injection molding process, but don't have any contacts in that field. I'd love it if someone could give me a breakdown of the process as a whole. Were the models digitally sculpted(I believe Super Dungeon Explore's were, but not sure)? Sedition Wars appear to have been traditionally sculpted and then converted to plastic. How many Tools were required(I know the two games are completely different and will therefore have differing amounts of Tools)?
I have an idea I think would be well received, have a few contacts in the sculpting industry, have a good artist on my team, but lack the knowledge of plastic models. Could things be done in resin or pewter? Sure, but I love plastics, gamers loves plastics(not everyone), and my idea has a very Board Game/Miniature game feel to it. I just want to get everything in line before I move forward, start a Kickstarter and make promises that I'm not even sure of all the processes.
Thanks in advance.
