They had a QC team? XD

the update mentioned that the new molds without the pizza slice things were so good they would put the qc team out of a job.

 

so that implies they existed.

 

which does not speak well of their work.

So this new method without the wedges has better vents or something? That's good news but for me, disappointing, I've got my shipment and started clipping off parts from these sprues, lost a few points and tips because of the way they intersected the vent mold in a cross-shape to the model. The resin is so fragile that it causes the tip of the intersection to snap off the model with little effort. I suppose the next update will be that they discovered a better resin recipe that isn't so fragile. Giving the backers low quality models and suppling retail with good quality. I think, RH just lost me as a customer. Pics incoming as soon as I can clean up my work area to assemble. The models are nice and detailed (mostly) but so fragile these thin parts, they're only good for display I think. Carring them around for gaming will definately cause casualties unless you pack them very carefully. Dropping one on the floor would be a disaster.

I just got part of my order in today. The casting looks very good. They don't seem that much greasier than other resin minis I have. The only broken piece I noticed was the Daughters of the Orphanage Command cook's spoon (looks impossible to fix). They certainly do look complicated to assemble. Lots and lots of tiny fragile pieces. Probably should put together a couple of angels before attempting Ascended Sister Erzebel.

 

I've never been very good with tiny multi-part resin models. May have bitten off more than I can chew with these bad girls. Oh well. Hopefully they can help me gain a level in my assemble skill. :unsure:

Just got mine today.  There are a lot of pieces!  And from the couple ive painted, I'm going to guess that painting after assembly is going to be difficult.

 

They certainly achieved high detail but I think that the brittle resin and multiple parts are required to do that and I'm not sure it's worth it.  My goal was a surrogate sisters of battle army and I'm not sure these would survive the experience.

 

Oh well, live and learn, all they owe me now is some metal casts...

Mine have all arrived now,  haven't really had a chance to do a thing with them due to other time pressures. At this point,  however,  regardless of how nice the offering is i would be avoiding anything further from this company

You just got yours today and you've painted two already? How?! I mean, wow. I'm impressed.

I've assembled the Worm Riders and began modding the weapons. Very easy to cut away the weapons from the hands. 7 of the 8 legs on one of the worms look like unfinished sculpts, I've filed them down a bit for putty application, I'll sculpt the detail on myself I guess :B): When I saw the worm riders I thought, 'I don't have anything like that, and I think they would look awesome with scythes for weapons!' So that's what they'll get.

 

Working with this material; it's soft (easy to drill!), brittle (don't overbend or drop or hold too tightly!) but very detailed and thick parts and most molded parts (arms, bodies, legs, ect) are pretty strong. Glue attaches everything and holds fast. These worms are like little puzzles, everything has it's place and only fits that place specifically. I have only found 1 part that didn't fit exactly, one of the worms fins on the underbody, not even a big deal. Easy product to work with, mold lines come off simply (if you can even see them) so don't be afraid to dig in.

 

After these worms are done I'm going to assemble some death dancers, they look to be the most difficult to deal with and will give me a good idea how useable these models are for gaming. As far as I can tell so far, if you have a safe way to transport them I think you'd be ok. Just be careful not to drop them to a hard floor, I'm pretty sure they'd shatter or break parts off at least.

Got the bulk of my order last night but didn't really have time to look much.

the pizza resin is a joke. There is so much flash attaching everything. They continue to disappoint me. 

I just need my spider mother and I can never deal with them again.

I was looking around on their website yesterday and was tempted to grab some stuff but looks like I made the right choice in holding off.

Strange, I ordered stuff from their site and received it in a couple weeks (what I'd expect across the ocean) maybe replacements just get second fiddle to orders?

      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!

      About this project
       
       
       
       
       
      A long time ago, in the fantastical land of Farenhell, the enigmatic city of Gormalak endured its darkest hour. Change came to this grand and sprawling city as the walls moved to reveal a giant network of underground passages and endless galleries. And so this labyrinth, known only as Infragorma, gave up its secrets … and its denizens. A myriad of creatures burst forth from this subterranean maze and sought Gormalak’s destruction. That dark age, filled with war and magic, honour and treachery, would be remembered as the Circle of Blood: a time where the great heroes and brotherhoods of Farenhell fought for the future of Gormalak.
      The city of Gormalak is the most ancient of all in the Great Continent. Erected by an extinct wizard lineage, the wise and powerful Gordmunds, it grew over the centuries in admiration and respect to the point of becoming an ambitious and arrogant city. The sacred government council, known as the Paradox, was formed by the seven elderly wizards, who declared one day, war onto the most powerful and influent nation, known as the Mountsea. This strong human empire wouldn’t ignore the wizard’s insolence and counterattacked with a bloody and atrocious battle that condemned both, Gormalak and wizards, to the absolute forgetfulness. After several centuries, the deserted city was discover by a few wanderers that decided to gradually reconstruct walls and silent alleys, making its streets flourish and become full of life once again. The ancient Gormalak was then established as the City State of Gormalak, a new power that even great kingdoms respected and it has remained so since.
       
      Circle of Blood is a miniature game that reproduces tactical battles of two or more squads of Adventurers called Brotherhoods. The players are in charge of a group of brave heroes or villains that come from different regions of Farenhell. These unalike Adventurers will have to defend the city from the dark events which surround it, or maybe take advantage of this chaos to provoke terror and crimes during the missions created by this game.
