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.

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.

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?

      Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

      The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
      This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

      In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
      But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
      For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

      Play with the full dynamic 2d20 game system featuring:
      Cinematic action driven by the twin engines of Heat and Momentum The triple battlefields of Warfare, Infowar, and Psywar A multifaceted Zones system which brings the game world to life All New Artwork of the Infinity universe commissioned by Modiphius and Corvus Belli Find out more about the 2d20 System further down the page Explore the definitive guide to the Infinity universe with: A complete Chronology of the Human Sphere detailing centuries of bloodshed The culture, history, and intrigue of seven powerful factions Gazetteers for all twelve planets of the Human Sphere, including beautiful, full-color maps Leap into your character by: Forging your identity with an immersive Lifepath character creation system Fighting for your faction with the fractious, innovative Wilderness of Mirrors scenario design system Facing dozens of fearsome, ready-to-play adversaries who stand between you and your destiny! A 368 page book packed with everything you need to roleplay in the Human Sphere and beyond!
      Here are our popular Pledge Levels, we'll be adding more as they are unlocked. Note: There will be more Bostria Art Pledges for the Core and Supplements unlocked, we'll send an update before they are so you have a chance to grab one
