    MOAR 2018 CALENDAR.

    Yup, these months we move into Classics/Micromaster cards! I did try an Animated and Armada card back, but Armada was a TOTAL bitch to try and recreate in Photoshop, and Animated was a bit... boring.

    Anyway sorry to spam the Calendar, but I don't want anyone to miss the FACT THAT PREORDERS ARE OPEN. So PM me if you want one, and I'll stick you in the initial print run! Same deal as last year actually, if you miss the first run you'll have to wait until the demand is enough for a second run, otherwise it ain't gonna happen.

    If you want one, best order NOW.

    CALENDAR UPDATE

    Coming thick and fast! That's the last 4 Action Master months done! So all the months (with dates) are done!

    So picture submissions are over... well actually I'm not totally happy with my pic (in all honestly it's the worst of the lot) but I am awaiting my Unrustable Bastard to come so I can do an epic new pic just for the calendar. But aside from that, and minor tweaks (like awaiting higer res versions of pictures, that kinda thing) I think the bulk is done!

    Now then... if people can proof read these images, make sure their birthdays or whatever are correct. Because I'll probably not see any mistakes.
    Only the cover/back cover to do, plus bonuses...

    Edit
    OK, I have no idea why one preview is larger than the other. They were all uploaded as 724 x 1024 images.

    Edit
    Ok, that should fix it yes?

    Excellent stuff Kit! :thumb 

    I'm going to send a slightly tweaked version of my pic later if that's ok.
    There's a bit on Meg's laser beam that annoys me and i'd smoothed it out on a later version.

    Who did the Death's Head and Mates chasing Squeeks pic? That's class!

    I did the DHII pic! I think it's the weakest of the lot actually. :redface2: 

    Also, yeah sure, can I get the highest res version of the pic too?

    OK! THIS IS IT. I'm pretty sure this is how the calendar is gonna look (barring a couple of surprises) when I take it to the printers in December. Front and back covers are done and it you notice a curious void here or there, fret not. All will be revealed in due course. ;)

    So, get your order in NAOW (currently standing at 34) because as I say, if you miss the first run there's every chance there won't BE a second run! This is also the last time I'll spam these particular images, because let's face it, you're probably sick of seeing them now.

    CALENDAR UPDATE.

    Wait, what? I thought I said I was finished and wasn't going to spam those pictures anymore? Well, I'm not... these are the bonus pages.

    So... remember those Top Trumps cards I did just before TFN for Bob Budiansky to sign? Well, why not make some cut out sheets for you people? Now, an admission, these have been sized slightly down so I could get all 30 cards onto 3 sheets.

    I will also do a limited edition Shitbot card that will only be available for for first print run people! I'll show that... well once I've done it.

    So get your order in NAOW.

    Hmm, looking at last years calendar thread I had the 2017 calendar ready by mid October...

    Righty, that means that once I get the Shitbot card done I'll be rocking up to the printers to get a quote...

    EDIT
    Hmm, in that case I'll say deadline for 1st run preorders is going to be September 30. I'll get the quote around that time, work out price and start tapping people up for MONIES.

    CALENDAR UPDATE! I'm off to the printers later today for a quick chat and I'll get the quotes from them. Orders currently stand at 57 so it looks like I'll get a run of 60 and only have 3 spare.

    Some of the folk there are wanting it twice, so don't worry, I haven't forgotten you. If your name ISN'T on that list and you want a calendar then please let me know, because I do believe once this run is done, that's it after those 3 spares are gone.

    So after today I will be asking for monies, so expect a PM later today! Now because the run will probably cost more than £500 I can't/won't commision the run until the the preorder money is in, so please please pay promptly otherwise everyone else will be waiting on you!

    Anyone international will (obvs) have to pay a little bit more for postage but again I can't know what the damage is for sure until later on.

    Oh and the 'limited edition' Shitbot Trumps card...

    Urgh, that's all messages out.

    BTW, can you make sure I recieve the amount I've asked for (ie, gift it or something)? There's not a lot of wriggle room on these calendars (blame all those extras) and if Paypal take some fees I come awfully close to eating a loss.

    Oh! And please tell me who you are on Paypal! I have a couple of payments, but I don't know who it's from... :redface2:  ...

    CALENDAR UPDATE.

    Whelp, I've been in to check out the test shot, and it's looking swish. It may not seem like a step up from last year, but technically it actually is. Last year we had no end of issues with the colours and blacks (because I worked in RGB) whereas this year? POOM! Straight out with no issues whatsoever.

    Anyway, that means 65 calendars are going to be ready (probably) for next week, which means you should be getting them in the middle of October. Now this does mean I have to badger people for payment, I now have just enough to pay for the actual order but the postage will still cost around £125 on top of that, so y'know.

    I need the monies.

    That's 18 people (who I'm posting to) who have yet to pay. So please do! Because y'know, I don't wanna be out of pocket. Especially seeing as (was pointed out earlier) I am a poor dirty smelly student again.

    Oooooof. Well that's a hour or two of chopping out Shitbot cards by guillotine and by hand.

    Yeah I'm not doing the corners. I don't love you that much.

    This does mean THE CALENDAR IS COMING. Should be picking up on Monday, and with packing and wotnot... these should be dropping through doors by Friday! (I hope...)

    That's weird, because it's in the main spreadsheet, no. 64. I must have missed adding you, posted that list, then added you to the main list afterward or something. Not to worry though you are there and accounted for!

    Edit
    Yeah, there's actually 7 people not on that early list, so you're not alone!
