Default Ogre Miniatures Set 3 Update

The official tooling order has been sent to the factory and they've started work. Once we have test shots, we'll be sharing pics.

Darryll has coordinated things with BackerKit and we will be opening the surveys there . . . later. Probably not until September.

I look forward to all the painted renditions that our cadre of minis painters will produce in a few months. :)

We likely won't see the test shots until October/November. These molds are a bit more complicated than some of our other projects.

Looks like we will have 3d prints from the factory next week. This is a step between the CAD and finished tooling.

The factory has sent the 3D prints, one of the steps in the process of taking CAD files to plastic miniatures. The Mark VI was output too small; we'll see a replacement print in September.
