Tentacle Maker v2 Up For Pre-order!

The long wait is over!

The latest version of Green Stuff Industries’ Tentacle Maker Tool Box v2 is now available for pre-order via the GSI webstore for $24.95 each. Shipment of pre-ordered Tentacle Maker Tool Box’s will begin on or about May 5, 2014.  Orders will be filled on a first-in-first-out basis.

The Tool Box price has dropped by almost 30% due to our new injection molding process. Also, Tentacle Makers are now made of a clear optical resin! You can see the tentacles and tubes you roll, as you roll them!

I invite you to click through to the store.  There are a dozen new products available!  And while you’re there, don’t forget to have a look around the brand new Green Stuff Industries website!

Thanks for your support, patience, and interest in my product!

Tentacle Maker v2 - The Mold Is Done!

The mold is done and I'm extremely happy with the quality of the build!  I now understand (somewhat) why GW charges what they do for their models.  Injection mold making is a tricky thing.  Mine was relatively simple and it still took 5x longer than expected.  I can't imagine what the designers and mold makers at GW have to do to get a model kit to market.

Sculpting: A Yummy Marine In A Giant Stomach

by Novus

You can see my latest WIP above, a flying Mantis companion for my previous Helbug kitbash.  In putting this conversion together, I figured out a way to make very smooth sheets of Green Stuff (GS).  That's what is covering that stomach-looking thing with the bulges you see below.

Quick v2 Tentacle Maker Progress Report

The mold modifications seemed to have worked!  We're running one more test with a different injection material, either today or Monday, and then production can begin!  I'm estimating only about 2 more weeks!

Thanks for your patience!  The refund offer for outstanding orders still applies.  Ask to be put on the Release Notification List by contacting me via the Contact page.

Super Easy Scatter Terrain: Barrels

by Novus

To me, terrain is just as fun to make as the models.  Like the table top models we so lovingly put together and paint, the quality of the terrain we play on adds tremendously to the quality of the game experience.

Progress Report: Tentacle Makers v2

Let me start off by saying that anyone who wants a refund on an outstanding order please just let me know and I'll process it within 24 hours.  I would like to add that not one person has asked for a refund so far... which is a stunning amount of trust you guys put in me/GSI.  I very much appreciate the confidence that instills in me.  Thank you all!

The latest modifications to the mold half worked.  There is one more adjustment (major mold change) that I was hoping to avoid and will add yet another week (and of course, more cost) to the process.  I should have product available by the end of March, at the latest.  I'm that close (holds fingers a millimeter apart)!

I'm going to receive the less than perfect parts from the most recent mold test later this week.  But, I'm not waiting to get them before this final mod gets implemented.  This project needs to successfully conclude ASAP or I'm going to go nuts!

If you would like to be added to the release notification list please visit the new GSI Contact Page, select Release Notification List in the dropdown, write a short note, and click the Submit button at the bottom.

Again, thanks to all of you, those with outstanding orders and their brothers on the Release Notification List, for your patience!  I will not be defeated by little slabs of steel and gobs of injected plastic!
