Fulfilling
Shieldwolf Miniatures War 2.5 (relaunch)

243 posts in this topic

According to DHL I was supposed to get Shieldwolf stuff today, but now that I'm looking at the DHL page and trying to figure out why it's still not here, all I see is that it's in customs review. Supposedly in Greece. Not sure whether that's actually accurate or not. Hmmm.

Mine is scheduled to get here on Mon. But I got my mammoths some time ago and like those, this will just get checked and put away.

Oof, bait and switch by DHL! Minis are still in Athens. And not Georgia... well, I'm still looking forward to these. Sounds like they'll be awesome when they do eventually arrive!

I got mine by email, but it looked like a text message:

IT CAME!  The ones I looked at had great detail.  Going to jump in later tonight to catalogue.

Well if my camera would have held out for a few more minutes on the first video I would have described the amount of armour on the models (it's about three quarters cover compared to the 40% to two thirds it looked like in the concept art). I like the fact that their armour looks scavenged, borrowed and recycled. It makes them look more barbaric (although apparently they've really got something against upper arm protection).

 

They are big girls standing head and shoulders above the previous three Shieldmaiden heroines that Patrick Keith sculpted. I haven't checked the other resin heroines for size yet. I've built 3 and dry fitted them on bases (to see how they'd rank up). Basically individually they'll fit on 20mm bases but if you want them to rank up it's going to be a real squeeze and you'll have to be careful how you position the arms (probably all up in the air). If you put the on 25mm bases they'll probably rank up quite easily (still need to be careful with a few weapon tips and cloaks 'though). It wouldn't make a very interesting video with me holding things in front of the camera with my hands getting in the way of whatever I'm holding while I babble about bases sizes. I could try lying them down with their feet positioned on the bases to show spacing. The hollow recess in the Freebooter bases makes it easier to balance a figure lying down on the base. I did wonder if the hollow bases (being almost ankle deep on them) is intended to conceal the height a little - especially if you fill it with the remnants of my old tub of Citadel Snow Flock.

According to my text from DHL, my kit was supposed to arrive on the 20th with signature confirmation.  Similar story to some others...nothing came, and when I checked the detailed tracker, it was still in Greece.  But also labeled on schedule, so who knows.

I've continued to track mine. So far it's left Leipzig and is on its way to Cincinnati! 

 

(would not have pegged Cincy as a DHL hub, but the more you know...)
