    The Mounted Knights are finally ready to be sent out. It would seem my vigil is almost at an end.

    This seems to be a common casting defect with the knight. I noticed some photos where people have painted it up without noticing. In my case the diagonal curved edge doesn't make it look broken off or battle damaged. The other figures all seem fine. In my case the curled tip of one of the arms on a crossbow had straightened out to the point where I wondered if it was miscast but I can probably heat it up and bend it back into shape no problem. I'm going to have to straighten a few swords on the silver knights (and Smough's droopy hammer).

    Oh, your knight's sword had the same part missing as mine did. In my case it was more obvious 'though.

    The sculpts are pretty good. The production quality is slightly less good but not towards the lower end. I'd say they're pretty good for board game pieces. Above average for tabletop pieces (if you take some of the lower quality stuff into account). I won't take some pictures now because it's late in the evening and my camera insists on using the flash in electric light. I can disable it by using a few modes that don't allow close ups or I can wait 'till tomorrow (by which time the other guy's probably going to have pictures up for you anyway). Be careful with the Knight hero. Mine had a misscast quillon on the body side. I've been in touch with steamforge and they're hoping to get a replacement sent out to me soon.

    I did a little video on them as well but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to a video (that is my own content) in this thread or not. Just me talking about how I based them, why etc. Eleven girls assembled now. One more for the full dozen.

    Just a few photographs to see how they rank up on the 25mm bases reliably and how feasible it would be to try to squash them in close together on 20mm bases (it looks possible but it would involve some very careful positioning of arms & hair and some of the women might end up facing in odd directions).

    Don't cut away then sculpt up. Cut the vent away further from the contour you want then carve down to it. Then, and only then, should you sculpt back up a little if necessary.

    I'll just keep waiting for those mounted knights then......

    Today? Sounds weird. Fortunately I have been spared this email (at least so far) but other backers appear to have experienced it as well if the comments section is anything to go by.

    Funny. I was about to ask the exact same question as those (and possibly the children) are the only things holding my pledge up.

    What were you cutting the pieces from the sprue with? For really tight sections like that where it's really close to the sprue I tend to use a knife and whittle away at it a bit following the surface of the cloak rather than the sides of the gate.

    I thought I saw some ridged armour plates on the spear arms that I didn't recognise.
  13. Fulfilling

    How easy was it to convert the hands to hold the spears?
  14. Fulfilling

    You're welcome :).

    I did not know this. That could explain why one or two of the figures had the typical Trollcast grainy surface to it.
