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.

It amazes me how awesome the resin is from Companies like Mierce and Greebo but that RH can't seem to get it right..

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?

      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
