Atlantic Digital - Choose the Theme!
We have been preparing for some time now to launch a new product category for Wargames Atlantic: Atlantic Digital! Over the last week or so we've been previewing some of the models, multi-part sets, and characters that will be part of Atlantic Digital.
Our goal at Wargames Atlantic has always been to make as many highly detailed plastic box sets as we possibly can (37 and counting in three years now)! And we will always be pushing to get more and more of them out to you each month. As we’ve put in place the system we use now to make those hard plastic sets - design, sculpting, Freeform and mold engineering, tooling, injection, packaging, fulfillment, and distribution - we’ve realized we can do a lot more.
We’ve also always wanted to just make MORE STUFF! We have so many ideas and so many talented people that it’s a shame that not everything we design can be made in plastic. Some things are just not right for the plastic production process (too many undercuts or needing too many fiddly parts) and some things maybe can’t justify the enormous expense of mold tooling, mass production, and packaging.
Every month Atlantic Digital will release a mix of new products for all 11 of our current ranges (9 historical ranges, Classic Fantasy, and Death Fields and maybe others as we grow). These products will be spread across the following categories: full multi-part sets, character figures, conversion parts for existing plastic sets, terrain, and vehicles. These will be available in the following formats:
- Massive STL file release via a MyMiniFactory Tribe with a monthly membership
- Individual STL files and file sets sold via MyMiniFactory and soon on our own site
- Physical manufactured models through Only-Game and soon on our own site
- Physical manufactured models available through distributors and retailers across the world
This will allow those who print their own miniatures to have access to everything and those who just want physical models to be able to order and receive them in the post just like our plastic sets.
As part of Atlantic Digital we'll also be asking you to vote on things to make, suggest characters and figure sets or accessories, and generally be a big part of the process. This will let us make more of what you want much more quickly while you wait for each plastic set to be released. And some of the things that start off in Atlantic Digital will also make it into hard plastic sets later (and you'll be part of that too!)
The first part of this new journey will be launching soon at MyMiniFactory, but in the meantime we want you to tell us where you want us to go next. The first month's release is massive with something for everyone (and much more than we've teased on the Forum and social media). Going forward each month's release will be built around a theme. Help us pick the December 2022 theme below!
