I think i should set up a blog.

Super busy here. That's no news, but I got some reasons and I would like to highlight them.


1/ Our Poznań facility (located about 200 miles/320 kms from Warsaw), is fully operational after January staff training. Believe it or not, but I just couldn't find anybody locally and hence my sale manager is from Poznań, that should work out fine.

2/ We had a long talk about the company policies and I am starting to get a bit restrained in a very good way. We reworked the business plans based on the updated costs and revised some of the company policies. We are trying to standarize the costs (that means same quality artists all over the board).

3/ The revision does affect some of our show policies, updates soon.


4/ We'll be adding a new kind of a creature to our offer: direct-only minis.

I won't be hiding the fact that these guys will be there to sponsor the marketing and shows. This won't be the web-extras like grimms or June Summers but always available fully fledged, game-described Supremes sculpted by out top notch artists. The only difference is you won't be getting them in boxes. First one coming soon ( I can only hint that it is going to be literally divine), the second one will be released in time for Salute for our Brittish supporters (maybe since we don't have a British distribution, we do get most of the orders from UK).

5/ February will be a month of wrapping up projects that need attention - full update of H&V section, reworked Herald programme etc.

6/ We had some spam folder issues with the Shop (at) pulpmonsters.com address, so I am catching up with all of the unanswered emails atm.

7/ In March, I will be revealing some info on the Reaver Lords project.

I think that is all for now, I will be more active over here in February so shoot me up with any questions!
Thanks!
Morf

5/

Hi morf,

Great to hear that there are some cool things in the pipeline!

Any chance of an update on the SG3 winners? We've been waiting a bloody long time.

Cheers!

It will be very interesting to see the Direct-only offering. Very interesting indeed.

Also a quick question: are we looking at Solar box and 'other box' (since you usually release pairs of boxes) next month?

I am sending them to casters next week. We usually have a 2-4 week turnaround.

Could you give us any previews on the new Herald system?

I know I tried to sign up to try and build up a player base here and I'd love to know what the new system will be like!

Looking forward to seeing the new stuff. I have 3 guys in Pittsburgh that are starting to play Pulp City and it would be fun to get a larger group going.

One quick question, if you can answer...

Will you be posting any more crazy concept minis that we can all vote on to support in the near future? Like we did with Giant Captain Hadron?

Perhaps some Reaverlords sculpts too?

This won't be the web-extras like grimms or June Summers but always available fully fledged, game-described Supremes sculpted by out top notch artists. The only difference is you won't be getting them in boxes. First one coming soon ( I can only hint that it is going to be literally divine), the second one will be released in time for Salute for our Brittish supporters (maybe since we don't have a British distribution, we do get most of the orders from UK).


Is there any chance of a re-release of the Red Baron under this plan? :D

I'm trying to remember - did we resort to poking Morf with sticks to get Giant Hadron? :?:

No I don't think so. As I recall he was really just looking for an excuse to build a Giant Hadron anyway. We're just the scape goats so he could say "they made me build it!"

Did you just say that if we poke Morf with a stick we get new minis?

Is this like one of those old NES games? There's some secret combo of hits and we'll get mechaspartans and dark Camelot? :)

In all seriousness, it sounds like things are good. Keep up the great work.

Cheers,

Chris

I say we try the Konami code and see if that does anything.
