It's not time yet to have a new thread open but as we are closing our KS-2, we are slowly preparing ourselves for the reveals of our KS-3. Armies for both fantasy and sci-fi this time, cofunded,

I got mine yesterday. I am pretty happy with them.

 

I put one together this morning just to see how well they assembled. I remember someone commenting on the length of the necks, they are definitely a bit too long to use 'as is'. I think they are supposed to fit deeper into the socket, but it didn't fit for the first one I built. Still, they are very easy to trim with a knife, I just shortened the neck and it looks good now. I did run into a problem with one of the cloaks on the sprue. I was cutting one out, and a piece snapped off the one beside it. It seemed odd that it should snap off, so I looked closer and it seems to be some sort of casting flaw. I saw the same line in the same place on other sprues, as well as other lines in other places. It's pretty clear in the pics, the first is the sprue I cut, the second is another sprue with a shiny line mirroring the snap line of the first. It looks like it shouldn't be too hard to glue back together, but I think it's likely to be a recurring problem. Even taking some care, the cloaks have very thick joins to the sprues that will take some force to cut. Worst case though, I have to glue some cloaks or put some together without cloaks, something I was planning to do anyway.

And here is the assembled mini. She is tilted back with her cloak resting on the ground, obviously she'd be standing straighter when based. She also still needs a quiver and shield, but she's already looking good:

I probably should have left the cloak off until it was painted, but I don't know if I could assemble the arms and head properly without the back piece in place, and I wouldn't want to try and paint the arms or head before assembling. I might try painting the torso and cloak, then do assembly and finish painting for the limbs. At least with so many minis, I have plenty to experiment with.

 

Overall I'm happy I backed this, I got a lot of nice looking minis for a very good price. And the resin pieces look great.

I got mine yesterday. I am pretty happy with them.

 

Edited to fix what must have been a double post.

This happened to me too with the first maiden I assembled. I must have pushed too hard as it just snapped. I was much more careful after and didn't repeat the issue. I think it gives her character, but don't want anymore snapped.

@NomadZeke Has the parcel arrived yet?

 

@pcktlnt We expect DHL to update us this week. We will also be posting May and June updates as we certainly aren't done with this project. Kindly have some patience as multiple tasks have befallen (is that correct English?) on our heads in a very limited amount of time.

I have faith in y'all. :D

Just a few photographs to see how they rank up on the 25mm bases reliably and how feasible it would be to try to squash them in close together on 20mm bases (it looks possible but it would involve some very careful positioning of arms & hair and some of the women might end up facing in odd directions).

I did a little video on them as well but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link to a video (that is my own content) in this thread or not. Just me talking about how I based them, why etc.

 

Eleven girls assembled now. One more for the full dozen.

Nothing yet. I'm rather patiently waiting since I have a lot going on right now.

 

OK, I hear you. Kindly proceed to sending us a message on Kickstarer but please have some (more) patience before receiving a reply.

We are dealing with any issues to the best of our abilities.

 

Thank you.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! 
       
      $100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!
