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.

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!

heck no.

 

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?

      Hi folks. I am creating cross-platform map-making software (for Windows and macOS), suitable for creating both print-resolution maps and lower-resolution maps suitable for use with virtual tabletop software. It's called MapForge, and it will be sort of a spiritual successor to Dundjinni, but with a greater focus on stitching maps together from pre-existing map tiles and then customizing the resulting map (with additional decorations, etc.) to suit the GM's particular needs.
       

       
      MapForge should appeal to GMs of face-to-face game sessions and to those using any VTT software, who want to create their own slick-looking battlemaps to visually enrich their RPG sessions (in any genre), but who find existing mapping programs (including image-editing tools such as Gimp and Photoshop) too intimidating/confusing/expensive.
       
      I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the program's development. The software will be priced to be very accessible/affordable, probably $30 or so, but it's just $27 during the Kickstarter campaign. And to help offset the cost even more, there will be at least 9 free content Add-Ons for it, covering various genres. MapForge will also offer a free level of use, so having a license won't be required to make maps with it.
      Version 1.0 of MapForge should be ready to go on sale in July 2017. Shortly after that, MapForge will also have the ability to generate random "dungeon" layouts via Donjon.
       
      I hope you will all take a minute to check out the project, play around with the downloadable prototype, and if you like what you see, tell your GM friends about it.

      Thanks!
      --Hernan (aka Heruca)
       
      PS: The campaign funded on day 1, and is now at 475% of the funding goal, with ~1330 backers and 9 days to go. All the Stretch Goals have already been unlocked.

      The Kickstarter is live:

      This one is for a skirmish game featuring their wonderfully fantastical minis many of which are available in either metal or resin.
