Raging Heroes: Dark Elves and Sisters

Recommended Posts

Ordering off website is actually pretty fast.  I believe Samurai Jack was waiting on a replacement part from an item that was part of a kickstarter delivery.

Which was very delayed.

I more meant I am glad I didn't get any because of some of the complaints about the sculpts.  Although there is one of a dark elf riding a manticore that is still calling my name.

So I got what I think is the last of my crap from these clowns.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have hit yet another low in quality control from Raging Heroes/Trollforge. How does something like that make it out of the foundry, let alone the developer? I mean, at least two people had to have looked at that and went, "Yep, looks good to me!"

I guess I'm happy that it's finally over and I can safely avoid these two companies forever. I wouldn't even resell this garbage, because I wouldn't do that to a fellow hobbyist.

Wow.. I'd maybe consider metal.. but I'd never back any of their crap again.. not when every other company seems to have figured out how to do resin properly..

I dunno. The quality of their metal casts are yet to be determined. The last email I got from Raging Heroes about them was on October 5ᵗʰ. They told me "metal miniatures production will start next week so we think they can be start to be shipped within the next month". That was almost three months ago and I still have bupkis.

 

They sent an email today mentioning their upcoming TGG3 kickstarter. It's sure to be joyous as :zombie: :zombie: :zombie:

To be blunt, just because other companies have figured out resin doesn't mean that I'VE figured it out. I've seen lovely resin casts, and I've seen the awful GW bits that were full of bubble pits that they wanted me to pony up $27 for a single mini.

But yeah, Cash has singlehandedly trashed my interest in anything these people are doing.

Wow that is a lot of flash, and to think they're stopping production of metal minis because of their superior resin technology (although I must admit the ones I got looked pretty good, just horrifyingly fragile).

Man that is seriously unlucky. I haven't received anything that bad from them yet. I did receive a few miscasts (including a horse with a snapped ankle and a broken banner pole) and those got replaced very quickly. I know I've come across some horror stories so I'm just going to assume that people are getting very mixed experiences with this company. Thanks for the photograph. That helped to demonstrate what you've received. I suppose I should just count my lucky stars.

I'm not finding the bubbles in the resin until I'm well into painting. What looks like detail turns out to be a defect. Not so many though yet. I did get one kit with bad flash like CashWiley got but I noticed that it broke off pertty easy, mostly due to the fragility of the resin. Still, I'm not looking forward to cleaning them up for assembly and painting. Which is exactly the opposite what you'd think a miniature company would want it's customers to feel.

      I don't think I saw this one posted here before, but with 48 hours left, I thought I'd share this fun-looking little film project.

      I backed his Chaos warrior and Goblin Kickstarters. Very nice minis, delivery a bit delayed but communications good, both Kickstarters were well worth it.

      Warning: Nudity

      About this project
      The Shadow Lords have been waging war in the depths of the Shadow Realm for thousands of years. 
      Each model will be cast in gray resin at the highest quality and be shipped as a model kit with some assembly required. They will be boxed with supportive foam ensuring that they are delivered in the best possible condition. As you can see each figure is highly detailed and stands roughly 6 inches or 152mm tall making them perfect for hobby painting, display, and 28-32mm scale table top gaming! If you need a new final boss, a overlord for your cult, or just a new way to wipe the party you've got trapped in the Underworld.. you've come to the right place!  They will make perfect Christmas gifts for the gamers, painters, and dungeon masters in your life. 
      **All models are printed in gray resin - NONE ARE PAINTED** 
      The project funds 1 Shadow Lord at a time! Basically, the Kickstarter's total goal will cover the complete production costs and ensure the price point for a single model. There are 4 Shadow Lords in total and we will have to reach 400% funding to unlock all 4! Once a stretch goal is unlocked that Shadow Lord will then be available to choose as a reward or Add-On! 
      Each model or a T-shirt can be added to any pledge level. Simply select your pledge level and in order to add an additional Shadow Lord figurine or an additional T-shirt to your order simply add $75 for a Shadow Lord or $25 for a T-shirt to your pledge! Its that easy! If you want more than one simply multiply the add on price by the number you wish to add and let me know in the Backer Report message at the end of the Kickstarter what the additional funds were for. 
      Once a Shadow Lord is unlocked more details about them will be released!

Enter the mysterious World of Fenian, a place where barbarian clans rule wild lands and corrupt civilizations live in decaying cities.

You will need a strong economy and an even stronger army, do you have what it takes?
