Is this from the guy who does the art for Impact! chibis? I might have to get this... the villian is really cool!

I know a lot of folks have had issues with the Trollforged in the past.  I won't lie, even I have had some.  But I know they spent a lot of time revising things, and Impact sent me a batch from the new casting group before i agreed to team up with them.  I assembled and primed one without washing it, perfectly clean bond.  I was actually pretty surprised.  There were a couple pinhole bubbles, but nothing worse than I would consider normal.

What issues did you all have?  Before I throw any money that way, I would like to know what's up.

Essentially it boils down to the following issues, some of the master prints were 3d printed on too low res of a printer creating some graininess.  But that is taken care of (and has been for the past couple kickstarters).  Also there was a pretty notable problem with the mold release being nearly impossible to get off.  I've only had a couple that were a problem over the course of their kickstarters, but when it was bad, it was BAD. There were also issues with bubbles on certain sculpts, but this seems largely to be due to the sculpts not really being cut properly for the material, as they have developed the experience this problem is now pretty minimal. I mean it happens, but it's resin, but overall seems pretty minimal to pin hole bubbles. Now, that said. I spent a lot of time talking to Impact Miniatures about these problems, he sent me a handful from the last project where the resin and the mold release were revised.  I primed one of the new figures without washing it using Wal-Mart $1 flat black primer, totally fine bond.  I mean I'd still recommend washing them, but still.  I was curious.  Now I get that as I am working with them, you may not want to take my word for it, so I forwarded a couple of my samples that I was sent to a podcast who have been critical of that in the past.  She is going to get them Saturday, so hopefully she'll get to take a look at them soon.  
If you aren't familiar with Elizabeth Beckley though, she's a pretty well known company painter, works with CMoN and a variety of other companies, during the podcast I mentioned above they were discussing problems with the older wave stuff, and she said her most recent figured seemed totally fine.  

I hope this helps, if I wasn't confident the problems with the material weren't taken care of, I wouldn't be willing to work with them.

Most of the issues were worked out in the Asian chibi or the pony Kickstarter, both of which were a few years ago. The last couple kickstarters for impact have been really good, with excellent minis. I wouldn't hesitate to throw a bundle of money at impact, and by extension this project.

 

Those forest trolls are super cute!

All I know is that the minis I bought in June last year were horrible.

The flying pig had deformed jet engines. The Sphinx has bubbles all over the headgear, the Kitsune has large voids at the ends of her tails(some tailtips are completely gone). and so on.

All the damage is clearly visible without magnification.

And yeah, I'm having trouble getting primer or anything else to stick on them.

Hmm...this gives me pause.  Might just wait on these till retail.

Too many questions on this one.  Quality concerns, lack of greens (or renders)--just to much doubt.  All the ones I am interested in have prices nut no sculpts (Egyptian ones).  I will wait till retail.

I can only speak to my own experience.  Yes, some of the old stuff was pretty rough and had problems.  Everything I have gotten in the past year from new casts was totally fine (minor pinhole bubbles, but I expect that in resin) Here is a look at the egyptian figures for you, it's not all of them, but what I have handy.

      Basically, a program to plan your dungeon. Pretty useful for 3D printing, and comes with it's own set of Egyptian tiles. You'll be able to upload other tiles as well, if you have the STL files. Super Early Bird (50% off, 25$) still available for now ;)
      They have some videos on the page that show how it works.

      I just found this series, and they have supercuts of the first two seasons.  There are also some extra shorts they did you can see on their youtube channel.  So there is 5 or 6 hours of viewing for any of you that are self-isolating or are just looking for something to watch.
       
      People who'd been playing a fantasy MMORPG wake up as their characters in that world.  Can they survive the wilderness, and other players (you know the ones who make the game miserable)?  Can they find a way home?  Do they want to find a way home?
       
      It's quite fun and engaging IMO, and if anyone wants to throw them a few NZD to get the end of the story done, I think we'll have a great thing for gamers to enjoy for generations to come.

      Designs include cobblestone, cobblestone, green 40K, and yeah I'll pick up more cobblestone. 
       
      Made in the USA. Economic disruption in China has shut down non-essential production, including plastic injection figures.
