I like it quite a bit. Except where minis are partially assembled in such a way as to make painting or finishing the assembly difficult.

 

Please don't glue the minis if you're not going to do the work to glue them right! :angry:

 

 

 

^^ 100% this.

My spider has a broken leg that is going to be a major pain to reattach due to the rest being glued already. Other than that, an elephant tusk and something else that I can't recall right now were my only breaks. Only one of which is going to be more than a minor inconvenience. 

 

I am missing a few things from my order and ended up with two of the aged statues instead one new and one aged for one of the sets. The only other thing I can thing of is the mislabeled, but correct color of paint.

Oof. It gets better and worse! Reaper was more on top of our order than we were. We both wanted a cobra, but only ordered one. And Fire Elemental, lovely spouse that she is, didn't put in her order for wraiths like she wanted. Hmmm. What does that mean?

 

Did we mean to only get one cobra? Whose was it? We could fight over it, or we could just give it to the first person to paint it... which is the probable outcome.

Yeah, agreed. A lot of the assembly doesn't look like it went well. Will have to take a closer look at things tomorrow.

Mumlak's ears are going to be a pain in the bum to fix they're glued in so badly. 

 

It is super frustrating to me because the material itself is really easy to work with, and the sprues are well cast such that they fit together great for a hobbyist. Then some stuff got pre-assembled and done badly. What?!

i feel like mine's ears aren't too bad, a bit of greenstuff to hide the seams and he'll be good to go

 

and i can greenstuff more fur on him at the same time. Woolly mammoths should be woolly!

I'm undecided about the new material. I have looked at 43 minis so far and I have 3 broken parts. Frost raider hilt broken in baggie, rock troll foot in the baggie, and the jungle king with his tusk, which is missing. The jungle king comes in a box, but the plastic insert was broken inside the packaging. =(20190415_184046.thumb.jpg.e3e496a4ef88a9ca8169557c6aeaf1b2.jpg

You certainly got the worst of it, I haven't seen anyone else post that much carnage in their package. Perhaps the courier abused it a bit? Either way, since Bones Black is much more fragile, I think there needs to be more care made in packaging the figure.

I have made my first adjustments!

 

clipping a finger off each hand of both my rexes to make them actually rexes. I did different fingers to make them a bit different

 

their backs fit awfully so time to greenstuff

Random fact: Reaper paints fit perfectly in the Lord of the Jungle box (pretty sure it would hold two levels of paint for a total of 48 paints in this box - but I only just got 24 new paints).

The shipping box's structural integrity was compromised when it arrived. Upper portion was a lot more squishy. Like I could hug it and it would squish a little instead of having the rigidness of a new box.

I think some is the nature of the boxing too. The only weak spot I saw in my box was the caribou on the giantess's back, which is really narrow, and they're tossed in the box clunking around. The clunking around with a ton of stuff is going to be rougher than in retail when they're blister-packed, and worse than they'll see when they're being used for even harsh table-topping on average.

That seems to be the issue with miniatures in general.  The better the detail the more fragile.

Are there any optional bits with the two cyborgs, or are the arms all one piece?

The only optional bits were for the tiny robots and the bulldog.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups

      SITHRAH is a sci-fi about a little girl trying to find her father after their plane crashes in a unfamiliar land. That's when she starts seeing an invisible creature, called SITHRAH, who has been following her around. It's not long until she runs into a young man named Dino who is running from his own ghosts. Together they set out to find her missing father wherever the evidence leads. 
      Book 4 will focus on their journey across The Deep to try to find Light City.
      This series will be 6 books long.
      Sithrah has been a big experiment with the comic format by mixing subtle prose with comic panels. My hope is to blur the lines between comics, children's books, and novels without making it jarring for the reader.
      Most of my inspiration comes from the comic artists of the 90's when I refined my drawing style. Later I became influenced by Miyazaki's movies and storytelling and have been trying to make comics that have a similar depth and feeling.
