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'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?

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
