I'm sorry for the delay in releasing new items! I'm trying so hard and life just keeps stealing my time from me. There are so many cool things I want to release and life just won't let me. This week my daughter tried to break her wrists while dancing. Severe sprains and 2-3 weeks at least to heal. Ugh. I still got 20 new heads up and 50 other items back in stock, but it isn't enough.
Does anyone want to babysit my 7 year old so I can get some work done? ;)
So there is a TON of new stuff that will be listed this month, but first and foremost I want to make sure my inventory levels are correct, so I will be restocking as much as possible from September 4-7.
After the restocking period is over, I should be able to list about 500 new things this month. I always make grand plans that fall a bit short, but this time I really think that I might hit my target! Even if I don't, I will still list a MINIMUM of 250 new products this month, including at least 10 new monsters, at least 6 new cape colors, and just a ton of minifigure pieces and accessories.
Stay tuned! This will be one of the most interesting months we've had in a long long time!
I have had a secret for the past year. I have been simultaneously running Adventure Bricks while also finishing my basement. And it was hard. There was never enough time and energy, and it's been a major struggle. But it's done now. And so now I have SPACE. Also, I have had to watch my son all summer long, and since he is only 7 it also cut into my time in a major way. But in 2 weeks he goes back to school, which will make my schedule a lot less complicated.
So I will have SPACE, and I will have TIME. I don't think I've ever had both before! Also, I have been on a huge creative streak recently and I have crossed off 10 of the remaining monsters in the MM, which now leaves me with only about 50, about 10 of which are already in progress. I just need TIME to get to the photography, so when September rolls around, I will be hitting the gas pedal and there should be HUGE amounts of new parts and pieces and also new monsters being released.
I don't know if I can get the MM done by Jan 1, but I am going to try to complete every non-gigantic creature by then. For those who are curious: Myconid Sovereign, Incubus, Succubus, Gnolls, Giant Frogs, Giant Toads, Giant Bats, Giant Weasels, Phase Spiders, Perytons, and Chuul are now done. Drow are on the edge of a complete overhaul,and the carrion crawler and otyugh are almost done.
The brilliant minds at the USPS got rid of First Class, but they never bothered informing small business owners. As a consequence, tens of thousands of websites are fouled up right now and don't have First Class shipping services. I just found out about this today, and it should now be fixed. First Class is now USPS Ground Advantage, and this website should now be calculating shipping properly again for small orders. We are sorry for any trouble this may have caused over the past week.
Also, we are still rolling with the new updates! We have 50 more new capes to put up this week, and I just finished some Myconid Sovereigns! yay!
Every time I post something, my life goes insane and then I always fall short of expectations. So here we go again.
20 new capes added today. We'll see if I can keep it going, with some new monsters sprinkled in. I'm not going to hype it beyond that, since it never ends well when I do. ;)
Sorry for the lack of new stuff! In a word: infrastructure. I spent most of May upgrading my website software, updating my inventory, and doing construction on my basement. So now I have faster/better software, more stuff back in stock, and more importantly - more storage! Hopefully June will be more like May was supposed to be!
March is impossible, since I play in an Irish band. April is full of taxes. BOO!
But now I'm done, and I am very excited for April-May. I already managed to get the new black 'elf hair' completed with 12 different ear colors, and I have 'orc hair' and 'cat hair' being produced right now as well. Also, there's finally a chance that some 'long legs' might get here in May. Will life finally cut me a break and stay out of my way? Stay tuned!
My construction project is almost done! I've been finishing my basement, and it has taken literally months, but the end is in sight. More space for LEGO! ;)
I might need 1-2 days to get all caught up and cleaned up, but the new stuff will officially begin 2/17, starting with some new capes/cloaks. I'm aiming for 10 new products per day, but it could range anywhere from 5-50, depending on the particular day. I don't think I'll be doing much with new monsters or custom builds, but certainly there will be tons of new weapons, armor, animals, etc.
Thank you everyone for hanging in there while I was building walls and running electrical wires. I got a bit behind on orders and made some unusual mistakes here and there, but things are much more stable now and it is all back in order. I am looking forward to my next phase.
OK, The short-term news is that the site will not be adding many new pieces for a full month. However, this is only because during that time I will be completing three big new things (besides taxes):
1) Capes. These have been in the works for several months now and I am happy to say that they are actually quite finished. However it takes time to photograph and list them all. But I have 4 new styles (shapes) AND over 25 new colors/fabrics. Good stuff.
2) Seriously, Hasbro? The OGL 1.1 was super awful and so I am putting some more support behind my PF2 offerings. I am going to attempt to make a serious amount of monsters from the PF2 Bestiary 2 and Bestiary 3. It's another long overdue thing.
3) *Top Secret* new part. This one may take until April or May, but we're cooking up our first ever Adventure Bricks piece. I'm not going to drop any hints just yet, but if this works out, it will just be the beginning.
Until then, the site will remain open and I will still be restocking inventory and all that, and I may even add a piece here or there. ;)
Althougfh I have been adding as many new parts and pieces as I can (20 heads last week!), the real update to the site has been the huge restock. Brick Warriors parts are now fully restocked, as well as lots of non-LEGO weapons, which were more popular than we anticipated. The restock will continue for the next week as I try to get the site more fully stocked than it has ever been. And of course I will be trying to add new parts and pieces every chance I get! There's a lot of new stuff still in the works.
