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.

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.

      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
