Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

Recommended Posts

I honestly am not overly concerned, as I have such a back log of figures I'm in the middle of painting that I probably wouldn't get around to starting one till later this year antway.

Dameon popped up on KS comments to say he thinks he should be done shipping soon, possibly Wednesday. He did address some of the KS commenters, almost all of which have shipped already.

I saw that post.  I'm hopeful he completes shipping Wednesday.  I'll look for my tracking Friday and Monday.  After that, I'll probably politely ramp up the "where's my stuff" lines of inquiry.

Daemon is reported to be unwell again. There almost seems to be a curse on the fulfilment of this kickstarter. My deepest sympathy goes to people still waiting for delivery of their figures.

Still waiting here as well. But I'm fine as long as they show up eventually.

It has been six weeks since my package was marked as shipped in Backerkit, but still nothing.  Unless someone in customs decided to keep it, we're getting into the "lost in the mail" time-frame.

Dameon has explained the reason things got listed as Shipped in Backerkit so many times now.

Yup.  And I feel sorry for the guy with everything that I've heard has happened.  Doesn't change the fact I don't have my minis.  Also doesn't change the fact that I won't be making another Hasslefree order anytime soon.

 

EDIT: I was patient until he sent me the notice that my order was ready to ship.  That got my expectations up.  If it wasn't ready to ship he should have held off.

I don't disagree that this KS has been pretty chaotic, just pointing out the specific thing you mentioned had been addressed many times :)

When they announced they were going to KS, I was puzzled because it seems HF was a strong company with no need for the chaos KS tends to bring. And lo....

I will still be placing a HUGE order when the new resins come in. Kev has been absolutely slaying it while all this has been going on. There's at least a half dozen to a dozen top shelf sculpts just waiting for this to be over (and it purportedly is).

I just hope they stay away from KS and stick to business as usual, I love their business model (resin master/resin/metal).

 

PS: I have no idea what's going on with my order, backerkit says shipped (of course) and I also got the email months ago...but I won't bother sending an email until at least 3-4 weeks from now (making the assumption I'm the last to ship + the usual 10-12 day shipping + customs delays). So take into account when I'm being all optimistic that I'm also in the boat of having no idea what's up with my order. I'm just not worried because Dameon has built up years of trust with me.

Agree with this completely. It was deeply frustrating to wait a whole year for such excellent models as Mother Morrigan to be available in metal. And Kev's Facebook page has been showing amazing sculpts ready to go that I don't suppose will be available before 2019.

It's amusingly poetic that my shipment has driven past me twice and has yet to be delivered by USPS.

 

So far:

London (RP) > Chicago (USPS) > Detroit > Cleveland > Akron > Cleveland

 

Maybe the next sorter will remember Strongsville is served by the Cleveland distro center. :)

      Mainly because a user asked me who made a particular miniature and I can't reload the message to answer it. These are the winter or frost versions of the adventurers in the latest Hasslefree Pin Up kickstarter. The bard (blond, cloak, staff) is called "winter erryn" by Hasslefree. 
       
      I have asked on the "bones you would like to see" thread for wintery/frostgrave style Bones figures.

      About this project
      League of Ancient Defenders (LOAD) is a two-team 2-6 player skirmish board game with stunning miniatures and intense gameplay modeled after popular battle arena online games. The vile forces of Chaos have invaded the island kingdom of Atlantis, humanity’s last hope. Players must leverage the unique abilities of their Heroes as they push three lanes simultaneously toward the opposing faction’s base. By destroying key enemy objectives, towers and spawn points, they will force the opposing team to abandon the battle in full retreat.
      RE-LOAD will be available in English, German, Spanish and French. Selection will be possible when the Pledge Manager goes live after the Kickstarter.

      About this project
      Welcome!
      We would like to invite you to our first on Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign dedicated to miniatures! We made a few before on other platforms, but now we are also here with new models and recast offer for all old ones. All of miniatures presented below are compatible with Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age. However you can use them in any other game you want.
      During our previous campaigns we showed our possibilities and strong orientation for reaching customers needs and vision of miniatures. Also projects presented in this campaign were started some time ago and developed with The 9th Age community to be as good as it was possible. Our very talented sculptors, artists and manufacturers are doing all their best to provide you with the best products possible. We have hope, and strongly believe, that you will enjoy what you see below.
      Your support is very important for us. While we see that our products are still needed we will run future releases. So thank you in advance to give us that possibility.
      How our process look like:
      1. 3D sculpt
       
      1b. 3D sculpt of alternative options (as option for bestsellers)
      2. Printing than casting resin models
      3. Professional painting (as special option)
       
       
      All 3D sculpts has already been made. Most resin molds also. We need your help to invest in missing production molds and materials to finish all open projects. Also stretch goals will help us raise funds to make some alternative versions and options for our miniatures, which for sure you will also like as base versions.

      Hello all! It has been a longtime dream of mine to have a line of barbarian miniatures, and I am finally going to try and make that happen via crowdfunding. This is the preview link to my campaign that has been approved and will launch on June 1, barring the need for massive overhaul or other catastrophe (perhaps invading barbarians).
       
      Barbaric Splendor Kickstarter One: Personalities (preview mode)
       
      Thanks for looking!
       
      edit: I am not sure how to get the Prelaunch tag to show in the thread title?
       
      EDIT: Campaign is live -
