Corvus Belli is a company that has already 20 years in the miniatures market. We make miniatures and wargames, our most famous game is Infinity, a wargame that is a leader in the world. I think we are in a sector that has a good time because we are growing. There is an avocation for miniatures, the hobby is still going strong with the confinements. There has been an uptick because people like to paint miniatures, and they like to plan games and they are looking forward to playing at full capacity. So for the miniatures sector, it is a good time.
We have a concept called Corvus Quality, that we print on all our products and that is to offer the highest quality in all our components. Our main products are the miniatures, so we only make miniatures of a high-quality standard. Everything isn’t worth that print, so we got to have to have the superior miniatures.
The price of metal is skyrocketing these days, it’s getting higher and higher. So, in order to keep prices stable we decided to transfer part of our production to SiOCAST thermoplastic. Making the miniatures with bigger volume and now it’s on the market. You can already find the first SiOCAST miniature on the market. Which is the Vostok, in the Beyond Crimson Stone and we began to manufacture miniatures in thermoplastic.
There are many people who want us to switch to plastic, this is a reality. The feedback has been positive, because indeed they have seen that the quality is not decreasing. If you put a primed miniature made in plastic or metal, you see it is difficult to differentiate which is which. Then there are nuances in the way of working the product because it is different with the materials you have to use. Or for painting, there are slight differences. But at the visual aspect, detail aspect. We have managed to maintain the detail, we have already achieved from the metal.
For us it is essential being able to control production, but it is no longer just to have the product at home and being able to serve it anywhere in the world, at any time, without having to wait for a ship without having to wait for any of these logistical incidents. But also, to be able to control the production process. It is very important to us, it is the most important. Corvus Quality is in all our products and we like that the pieces, that the miniatures are made as we want them to come out. If it is not done at home, it is very difficult to get it.
We want to continue working and analyzing how to improve and testing all the technology to put it in our products, in new products. I still can’t tell you which ones because they are super-secret. But it’s true, at the moment we already know between end of the year and the beginning of next year all the Infinity high volume miniatures, they will be in this thermoplastic and we will see in the future, what it brings us.
But yes, there are plans to produce, but at the moment I can’t say anything more.
