Forgot to ask, does anyone have experience with RBJ Game Company?

I didn't back their last KickStarter (Skulls?), but backed the one just before that. (Skeletons).  The had decent communication and fulfilled quickly and on-time.  I will back again if the project is right.

 

That said, I'm liking the look of that medusa.

Keeping an eye on this one, that’s a nice Medusa. Never heard of RBJ Game Company before, wish they’d name the sculptors in their store though :unsure:.

 

On another note, I’ve never heard of “Popular Company” miniatures as shown in the scale shot...

I backed the skeleton one and the skulls one. Good communication, easy to use website for 'ordering' the KS, quick shipping. This one isn't up my alley but I may head in for a figure or two.

I'm in for the Medusa.

The rest just doesn't stand out, really.

Also, while soldiers might have marched with their helmets up like that, they definitely pulled them down to cover their face in actual combat, or even when 'just' practising with their weapons, because one, it's a helmet designed to PROTECT the head, so it's stupid not to use it, and two, wearing it 'up' like that it's likely to fall off when doing vigorous movements. It's also a good idea to practice with the helmet on to get used to the weight, mobility issues and lack of peripheral vision.

I like the characters and add ons.  The cyclops and gorgon are my favorites.

Yes.  I went in on their sci fi Kickstarter and it was all good.

 

Looks like they’re over the mark for the Cyclops!  That’s the one I dig the most.

Cute triumphs over accuracy. Actually, maybe she had just taken a fearsome blow to her face. Her helm did it's job, protecting her and getting knocked back in the process. Yeah, that's the ticket. It might even look good painted up with some manufactured damage and blood on it. Then she'd have it up because it didn't fit properly anymore. Of course the suspension of disbelief is severely tested when you see three out of four are knocked back in a similar fashion...

 

Hey, maybe they are fighting a flail snail, and the flails all spin upwards, causing an abnormal number of helms to be knocked back.

 

Or they are marching to war through tiger territory, and have faces painted on the tops of their plumes for safety:

I just got my stuff today as well. One of those rarities, a kickstarter fulfilling on time.

Athena looks great, and her owl is amazing. She is a bit larger than the other minis, as befitting a Goddess. The owl is nicely made, I didn't use anything to hold it in place, it balanced well on it's own on the flying stand and separate base. I also added a set of pillars, as you can see they are quite tall, I didn't want to zoom any further out or I would lose too much detail on the other minis. I got a pack of translucent snakes and the set of resin hoplites, they are surprisingly dark, but look quite good. There is a reaper guy on the end for scale.

A close up on the snake and hoplite. Still a bit hard to see, but the detail is good.

Somehow a sleestak grabbed a machine gun and snuck into my box (I'm guessing it was a bonus freebee to show their other lines). I laid a pillar on it's side to show proper size. The schnauzer was a freebee, then one from the archer, spear and sword sets I picked up. There were a few shield options, I picked the assorted packs. Unpainted the minis look topless, they have belly button and nipples on them. Only the raised edge across the chests and skirts make it obvious they are armoured. Of course painting them would make it clear. I picked up the medusa as well. She's a beauty, but needs some assembly. There is some flash, but not any abnormal amounts and it looks easy to clean.

 

Overall, a very good ks experience. Nice minis, good prices, and quick delivery.
