Raging Heroes: Dark Elves and Sisters

I can understand that. Me ... I ordered all the heroines I wanted that were available in metal in metal - so that's five or six. I have not even started to paint any of the RH stuff (time reasons ... and grease reasons), so I'm not in a hurry.

 

Oh I started.... Didn't get much further yet 'though. Sadly I cannot disable the flash on this stupid camera. The photo doesn't do the paint job justice.

And my minis have shipped ...a month after they said they were going to ship.

 

At least, for me, it is over.

I got an email today from the French postal service. Apparently a Raging Heroes parcel has left France, made it safely across to England yesterday and should be at my house "within the next few days". I suppose that could be any time soon.

I got my minis yesterday. Some of the venting is mindbogglingly bad, like on the daughters of the orphanage rocking horse. Most isn't too bad though, as the vents are thin enough to cut without causing damage. In fact a lot of them separated before I even started on them, some of the pieces were loose in the bags. And the minis look great, I'm still glad I backed. I can't wait to build some angels and harpies.

A big box of goodies arrived at my house today. Everything appeared to be present. So far I've tallied things. Haven't opened up bags to see if there's any bits missing. It appears to be a mix of the new and the old sprues so I imagine some figures will need to get the grey car spray treatment whilst others can have a more easy going undercoat. It's going to take a long time to sort them out. Some of the vent placements are odd but I should manage.

...And now I have my minis.

 

They look fantastic (and aren't swimming in grease like my freebies were), but they also look far too fragile for me to even think about trying to work with them.

 

Plus my favourite mini, Mother Augusta, has really soft details. Just to end this thing with one final disappointment.

I was putting my replacement Erzebet with the rest of my minis and inventoried the parts.. glad I did..

 

1) the replacement had part new casts and part old dark gray/oily casts

2) Her head was missing off the sprue, but I had two of one of the other parts.. ugh..

 

Their customer service got back to me pretty fast though

I just got a shipping notice email but it doesn't have the metal figures. I didn't pay for an extra shipment. Not sure why they're shipping out the resins, unless they're trying to build up a little bit of goodwill before launching their terrain project.

I'm looking forward to finally getting Erzabel, the Daughters of the Orphanage command group, and the Angels command group. Hopefully the metal figures will ship later this year.

I tried assembling my mounted knights today.

 

Pro's: They are not greasy and like my glue better...

 

Cons: one of the horse legs was broken at the ankle, and the broken part was not in my box. The horses are all oddly rearing. Which individually looks cool, but as a group is kind of weird. The riders are in a million pieces. Separate face and head/hair. The arms vary. I have one that is should/half arm rest of arm and spear. Some of the tabs are not well (pronounced?) and are hard to line up. Especially the face and head/hair.

 

It is frustrating as everything is lovely, but so hard to put together, and are very fragile feeling. I may try to sell everything on E-bay... Very disappointed.

Last update.... changing how they are making the minis again...

you really would think this was their first kickstarter.

and shipping items without additional shipping cuz... back out next kickstarter!

i had the same issue Smokestack, poorly cast tabs making it difficult to impossible to assemble some parts.

Had to laugh at that part of the update.

 

I received some of those pizza wedge sprues they were so proud of, they've only just now realized that surrounding each mini with a solid 1cm frame of resin might be a waste of resources?

      Well, the HeroQuest Kickstarter  crowdfunding is in its final few hours - I ended up being pushed over the event horizon by my girlfriend, and went in for the 110 Euro pledge.
       
      HeroQuest was her introduction to fantasy gaming - I brought my old, battered, but much loved original copies over to her mum's house for Thanksgiving.
       
      She still loves that game.
       
      And... there are some elements that I am seeing that I really like - the mummies look like dried cadavers instead of Egyptian mummies, and the terrain looks fantastic.
       
      Hopefully.... I will be able to drag the Anniversary edition to her mum's for next Christmas.

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.

      Announcing Relic Knights: 2nd Edition
       
       
      Ninja Division Publishing and Soda Pop Miniatures are excited to announce Relic Knights: 2nd Edition and its first expansion Void Break. Relic Knights: 2nd Edition and Void Break will feature new and revised rules for the Relic Knights miniature skirmish game, a new 2-Player Starter, brand new units, beautiful new sculpts for many existing units, gorgeous new art, and exciting fiction continuing and expanding the Relic Knights universe. The Relic Knights: 2nd Edition Rulebook, 2-Player Player Starter, and Void Break expansion book will be launched through Kickstarter in the last half of February, 2017.
       
      2nd Edition Rules
      The 2nd Edition rules are an evolution and refinement of the Relic Knights 1.5 rules which were released in downloadable form in 2016. The new rules continue to feature Relic Knights’ unique card-based mechanic where players manage a hand of esper to initiate powerful attacks and actions; as well as the ready queue mechanic where you must carefully plan your units’ order of activation to maximize their potential and impact on the game.
      Units are now organized into two categories, Heroes and minions. Whenever a Hero is activated they may also activate a minion, allowing these units to perform their vital battlefield roles, without taking space in your ready queue. Unsurprisingly, the mighty Knights with lead your cadres are powerful Heroes, who are instrumental in unlocking your entire cadre’s full potential.
      Every unit in Relic Knights will be completely updated, with many units acquiring brand new upgrade options, such as special weapons, alternate gear, and unique abilities, allowing players to customize their cadres to their specific playstyle. An upgrade deck will be available (and included for free in Kickstarter pledges) for veteran players to be able to quickly and easily update their existing collection to 2nd Edition
       
       
      Beautiful New Models
      Soda Pop and Ninja Division are committed to making Relic Knights a stunning visual experience on your gaming table. As part of that commitment the studio has taken a hard look at the entire Relic Knights range of plastic miniatures to determine which models meet our standards for quality, and which must be retired and given the gorgeous resculpts they deserve. Those models that didn’t pass review will be discontinued immediately and will be resculpted and manufactured in high-quality resin. Models which passed review will be repackaged and updated for 2nd Edition, being resculpted and making the transition to resin only once the existing stock has been depleted. You can follow this link to find a complete list of which models will be discontinued, resculpted, or continue into Relic Knights: 2nd Edition.
       
      Resculpts are not the only part of 2nd Edition! In 2016 Soda Pop and Ninja Division released a small sample of the new units coming to the Relic Knights universe. These models were only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. In addition to the original units from Darkspace Calamity, the 2nd Edition rulebook will feature two additional units per faction, and the Void Break expansion will feature four more new units per faction. The Prismatic sub-factions (Void and Radiant) will also receive a massive influx of new units allowing them to provide additional options to the six primary factions, but also the ability to be played as standalone cadres. More Darkspace units are also ready to join your cadres. This all combines to make Relic Knights: 2nd Edition a bonanza of exciting and breathtaking new models for fans of Relic Knights!
