Schlock Miniatures Almost Gone, More On The Way

My friends Drew and Janci, Garden Ninja Studiosâ€˜ Chief Artisan and Chief of Operations respectively, are impressed with your enthusiasm for these miniatures. In Janciâ€™s words â€œThe last couple of days have been pretty surreal.â€
First: for those of you who have placed orders for painted Schlock miniatures, please note that each of these is hand-painted, and theyâ€™re not done yet. Drew wasnâ€™t expecting to have to paint the entire inventory in one go, so it may be a couple of weeks before some of these orders ship.
Second: As of this writing there are only 36 Schlock miniatures left. Garden Ninja Studios is already planning a re-order from the caster. Since there is now a pre-existing mold the turnaround time should be fairly quick, but thatâ€™s not the same as guaranteeing that the next batch will arrive in time for painting and holiday shipping. Still, demand being what it is, Drew and Janci will do everything they can to make you guys happy.
Third: If youâ€™ve got friends who play tabletop wargames, please consider Garden Ninja Studios for that one-of-a-kind, remembered-for-years-to-come Christmas gift. Drewâ€™s â€œMovie Marinesâ€ are perfect for that Warhammer 40K player who â€œhas everythingâ€ and is difficult to shop for. Iâ€™ve seen some of Drewâ€™s conversions and kit-bashes, and they are gorgeous.
Fourth: Interest in the Schlock minis has been strong enough that weâ€™re willing to consider doing another character early next year. Iâ€™m leaning towards an action-pose Tagon in the new uniform. What say ye?
