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.

      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
