    I like the wicked witch, and a few of the others, but they are kinda pricey for me right now:( Plus my son just broke the frame (glass all over grr) on one of my art pieces, so I have to replace that now:( And did anyone notice, it appears that the bases are SEPARATE from the busts. Is that right? 

     

    Yes, the bases are a separate item.  Pretty normal for most of the busts I've seen.  Scale 75 did it that way for both of their Bust KS, and same for most of the retail operations I've looked at.

    Thanks, I liked Ollie, he's been a great help in testing new ideas and techniques!  hes also a well bathed dragon, having 2 dips in the simple green during this adventure!

     

    Resin still isn't my favorite medium, too much waste and often too many mold lines, sometimes in the worst possible places.  this miniature didn't suffer from my biggest complaint:  The primer actually stuck to the resin the first time and doesn't flake off badly, something I find common in most resin.  he is also a really powerful sculpt.  I have had a really good time painting him!

     

    Yeah, I ALWAYS plan to wash a resin piece at least once, before attempting to assemble and/or paint.  I think 99% of the mold release agents they use when making resin will repel acrylic paints.  I have a love/hate relationship with resin.  It holds detail great and usually goes together fairly well and it's light.  Dealing with mold release is a pain, and you have to be careful when sanding and filing cause the dust is usually toxic and you should avoid breathing in the dust at all costs.  Dealing with pinhole bubbles is a pain as well, although I haven't seen that in a while.  It seems most people have stepped up their casting and that's a problem that was a lot more common 10+ years ago.  

     

    Anyway, love what you're doing with this guy and look forward to watching him progress!

    I know the feeling!  It was a big relief to get my email last night.  Good luck!


  4. In response to a question asked on the last update, they're currently looking at beginning fulfillment in August.  Couple months past the projected delivery date, but I think they got taken by surprise with how popular this ended up being.  They've also show pictures in the updates of the production versions of the flowers (which is all they've been making so far).

  5. Haven't heard anything on mine yet.  Just of curiosity, what did those of you who have gotten tracking numbers order?  I'm just wondering if quantity or backer order is determining the order in which they're shipping stuff.  I've got four crates and a bunch of add-ons coming someday (I hope).

    FWIW the two bigger figs are 4.99 Euro/ea, and the four smaller ones are 3.00 Euro/ea. ~$25.50 for all six at today's exchange rate.  Kinda spendy for pretty tiny figures, but THEY'RE SO DANGED CUTE!!!!
