This kind of thing usually gets me, but I am not sure I want to use resin for this when I can use Bones and Dwarvenite. I am just worried it won't stand up to the test of time. Thoughts?

So I'm scrolling down the page, checking out the wares and thinking "ok sure these are cool", and then I get to this part:

If our campaign hits $3,400 everyone who pledged $40 or more will receive a bag of 50 Human Skulls! These skulls are great for conversion projects such as decorating your bases for your miniatures or terrain builds. The skulls are selected from five different sculpts and come unpainted.

This project now gets my seal of approval.  Carry on.

Animesensei! Thank you for sharing this here. We appreciate the support. 

 

Talae, resin is very durable that's why we decided to use it to create our pieces. We have accidently dropped our pieces quite a few times now, and nothing happened. No chips, cracks, or anything. If you ever have problems with our product let us know, we will take care of you. We stand by our product and customers 100%.

 

Jeneki, we are grateful to have your seal of approval. We reached our goal within 5 hours! We are close to unlocking the first stretch goal with the awesome unpainted skulls!

You may have just earned yourself a sale. At minimum, you have earned me going to check over the Kickstarter page again. Thanks for the response.

This is a First Created project (previous one was cancelled) and the home page shows no project management experience.

 

I've asked the creator to add their experience to the home page.

The other red flag is that all the stretch goals seem to add free product.

That painting is awful nice for prepainted minis.

If the molds aren't made yet, I wonder if the samples are hand-painted. Especially since things in their first (cancelled) Kickstarter were advertised as hand-painted and included many of the same sculpts.

Well...you don't necessarily have to go overseas for resin manufacturing. You could do it out of your garage. I think the bigger issue would be getting them all painted...(I would not expect paint quality on par with the photos. Just being realistic with pre-paints)

I was *really* disappointed with two of the three token sets from Stonemaier Game's last project, and, yep, the prepainted sample pics looked entirely different from many of the tokens I received, which were painted much worse.

 

OTOH, With this being a Reaper forum, if you didn't like a DL prepaint, you can certainly repaint the miniature.

 

I still don't see any additional information on the Home Page re: the creator's project experience. But, if $45 is worth the risk, and you don't already have these mini's, sure, why not?

 

Johnny Lauck of the former MegaMiniatures should have more unpainted dungeon accessories in his next KS sometime this year, although, in his last KS, he only had them as a bonus to his other KS. He's fulfilled 3+ KS already, as well as his 13+ years of casting experience (and casts locally). https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/967512676/dungeon-monsters-28mm-miniatures-undead-zombies-an?ref=profile_created

 

Forge Prints has run 3+ KS, and 3D prints their miniatures. They said they will have another KS sometime. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1613044699/foundations-2?ref=nav_search

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

      This is a second edition of a game that had some kickstarter success last year.  The project ends in about a week.  A solo game, for those long, lonely nights at sea.
       
      No miniatures, although the price tag is pleasantly miniature in comparison with the bloated behemoths rampaging their way across kickstarter at the moment, devouring available funds.  I know nothing about this game except that the box undeniably very excellent and the custom dice look neat-o.
       
      Cheers.
