Sacred Sword Miniatures Chibi Miniatures

Recommended Posts

Me lol, it's my project.  I can add more photos of the figures that are finished.  Those are actually figures from one of Impacts previous campaigns that they recommended I add in as they aren't in stores yet and they get a lot of extra funding from people padding out pledges with older figures.  Impact never uploaded the actual casts of those figures photos online, I just literally took that photo for you.  
I am sorry I wasn't clear I was running it, I thought you realized.

Whelp, my experience with those particular figures is they all had clean casts, and washed up well, the regular mummy and the pony mummy need assembly, the other 4 are single piece, they also have scorpions and scarabs I'll be getting up soon.  I am going to be reorganizing the layout within the next couple days.  I want to make it more clear.

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.  

 

 

I will echo this.  Trollcast has gotten a lot better, and the new minis that I've gotten from Impact have been significantly better (more like a normal resin run- you've got to clean mold lines and maybe have a couple air bubbles, but the surfaces are WAY smoother than they were before).

 

If you are ordering older minis, many of them will have been produced before the refinement of the process (it is a bit like ordering Bones minis- all the new ones are in the improved material, but the older ones are up in the air).

We're on our last 30 hours guys!  Last couple days have been a good uptick in votes.  And thanks for the remark odinsgrandson.  The quality of trollforged has vastly improved over the years.  It's why I was happy to go with them, they are a great quality for the price, and I find the material really easy to work with.

there could be a massive influx of pledges in the next few hours! I've seen it happen with other things. <hopes> I have to comment, I really don't normally like chibi figures, but I LOVE these little animal ones. Even if this one doesn't make it, I've definitely followed you on KS for next time (tm)

Well, if we do have to reboot, we've already reached a wider audience, had a lot of comments on the line-up and layout that we've already started to implement and will implement more of them on the reboot, we've got a lot planned and we'll do what we need to to ensure everything goes a little more smoothly on the relaunch.

So guys, two things, one we did cancel, and are planning a relaunch in a couple months.  In the mean time though, Snickernack Studios got a couple of Impacts newer cast figures, after the resin was revised.  I highly recommend checking it out.

She takes a look at the newer casts, and compares them to some of the problematic older ones.  Especially discussing the QC as well as priming issues.

      Here is a Bones inspired kickstarter that I think my fellow painters will appreciate, a travel and display case for your mini.

      About
      Iyaxill & Gutmeg Pack Konohana e Otogi Pack Hello and welcome to our second Kickstarter ! As many of you already know our first try have failed, but we promised our friends that we will be back, so here we are, with the old 2 models and 2 brand new ones!
      Full Offer Why we are on Kickstarter ? All of the models shown already modeled and test printed, ready to go into production. We need your help for the final phase: molding, mastering, and casting runs are expensive. It would take us a lot of time to raise the funds to put  these models into production over time and we ask for funds to make all models printed and packed. We want to put these models into your hands  as soon as possible, and Kickstarter can make that possible.
       We are a group of friends from Italy, avid players of Wargames, Role  Playing Games and miniatures painting and collecting. I personally have a  miniature collection started in 1985 with thousands of pieces; maybe we  can say that we played more or less every game with miniatures of the  last 30 years… Now we want to create the miniatures we waited uselessly  for years that someone else can produce. We have had our miniatures  sculpted by some of the best artist of the world, and we will print them  on the best services on the market. We strive to give you the best of  the best service available.
      Iyaxill, Orc Champion Iyaxill, Orc Champion The Orcs are a nomadic people, and can be found nearly in all lands of Valenor (it is said that some Orcs live even in the oceans!). Iyaxill, like many Orcs, is a follower of Gharuk, the God of Fire. But his faith is so strong that he has become a Choosen of Gharuk, a priest of sort but a powerful user of fire magic.
      Casting Master Few enemies can stand before a giant Orc in full tribal armour and wielding fire as his weapon. When a Choosen of Gharuk call a tribe to war, thousands of Orcs reply to his call, hundreds of Firestone slinger pelt the enemy line with explosive stones, giant fire elementals walk at the side of priests of Gharuk trampling anything that stands before them...
      Gutmeg: Goblin Rifleman Gutmeg: Goblin Rifleman A Goblin is smaller and weaker than all other races of Valenor, and in a world where slavery is practiced the Goblin race suffered more than any other. Goblin can be vicious fighter, that use any tricks and any means to beat an enemy, but usually they get beaten back and defeated.
      When the first firearms appeared on the market, for the Goblin was an item sent from the gods. With a firearm a Goblin is the same as any other race, the Great Equalizer. Some Goblins take this to the extreme and create a real cult of Gunpowder.
      The Gunpowder Cult is a group of fanatics that revere their weapons and live only to tally how many they kills. (All non-cult creatures are fair target) some of them get the "Flamebearer" rank, like Gutmeg, to show their total dedition to the cult. Losing their weapon is the worst offense a Gunpowder Cult member can do, even if they acquire a new weapon, the old one must be handed down to a new member of the cult. To this end the Flamebeares hold their firepowder reserve stocked under a constant flame the carry on their back. When a Flamebearer fear to be defeted, he opens the flame conduit to reach the gunpowder storage, immulating himself as a living bomb.
      For our second year models we want to change our creation process, so instead of historical research and lore history we started from scratch. We put a lot of ideas on paper, burned them and start again a couple of time until we have a number of original stories and character ideas, then we contacted the great Aitor Holgado  a really talented artist to develop our ideas. He got us a lot of great miniatures ideas, and we choose two: Iyaxill & Gutmeg.
      We then give the design of Gutmeg to Alessandro Depaoli our great 3D artist, and Iyaxill to a young but talented sculptor: Ocampo Lopez Julio Cesar from Argentina !

      So.. this is happening.

      I'm not sure what I can say about this that isn't said on the page; other than it looks like a sheet management toy that could be a lot of fun to mess with.
       
      I'll let you guys judge effectiveness for yourselves. ;p
