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.

      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.
