Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set

About

THE PROJECT

Over the past decade I have directly assisted multiple miniature companies achieve success with their projects. I have both broad and lengthy experience in the miniature industry. My previous work has covered all aspects of miniature production from design to manufacturing, and ranges from working with metal to resin and also plastic materials. Now I am creating my own line of high quality figures and am asking for your help to meet my goals. This project will begin with 10 figures and will expand to add more figures, add-ons, and freebies. If a picture is worth a thousand words than these images should speak for themselves.

Thank you for your interest and support!

I kind of like some of these .. but I'm a bit confused by the pledge levels .. $60 gets you all 10 core minis plus all the stretches.  Then, $70 gets you the STL files, but not actual minis.. and $75 gets you one 75mm mini..

They don't appear to be cumulative like other KS's I've backed..

Yeah, that confused me as well...I don't know why they didn't do cumulative up to 10 core minis, then have the 75mm and 55mm minis after that point. It isn't clear how to get everything in the campaign.

 

Additionally, re-reading the page, the creator mentions participating in crowdfunding projects in the past, but does not cite which ones, and this is marked as his first kickstarter. His idea of the delays possible don't account for a couple of different ones I've seen, such as legal issues... And finally, he doesn't say how he plans to avoid being slowed down by them. 

 

All matters considered, I'm personally unlikely to end up backing in the end, unless updates end up being clearer than the initial posting (even if a couple of miniatures are really pretty)

Clarification:

I also am unlikely to back it.. I had some of the same concerns (and I'm supposed to be paying down debt instead of backing more mini kickstarters)

 

Also, Kickstarter says Heresy Lab is out of Chicago IL but their webstore prices are in euros..

I think he means he backed other projects when he states 'participated'... 

 

the webstore also allows you to select US$ and GBP£

 

now, what i don't like is that Heresylab's KS profile states Milwaukee, Wi... nd that he's using a 'privacy' registrar for his domain, and that his site is hosted in Italy, possibly somewhere in Toscana?

There's also no 'about us' page on their website explaining who they are, where they're base, VAT registration, phone numbers or anything you'd reasonably expect to find. 

 

Of course, using a privacy registrar does cut down on the spam... 

nd the Italian server job may be because it was cheaper than a Us server. the fact it defaults to Euro can be just a sucky store front-end with default settings...

 

Most probably, they're just unprofessional, not a scam, though.

 

They have a good number of minis I wouldn't mind owning, but for now I'm staying out of it.

Unless specific examples are given of his design/sculpting/manufacturing experience in the miniatures industry, I wouldn't even consider backing.

 

I've been burned before.

I think it is an unfortunate choice of name, since it invites confusion with Heresy Miniatures.

Definitely some interesting designs, but wow, those are quite a few red flags from various people in short order.. 

 

... Not to mention the pricing...  Or that adding on a larger model is one that's just 3D printed, not sculpted and cast...

I think I'll see if they survive the kickstarter and then pick up the ones that I want via their webstore.

The sculpted eyelashes look weird to me and would severely limit any attempt to paint these women in anything but heavy makeup. After looking at a bunch of the figures I started to see the eyelashes like that embarrassing old fake epicanthic fold stage makeup they used to put on white actors playing Asians.

 

I like being able to paint the expression I want on my figures’ faces, and that includes whether they are wearing false eyelashes or indeed any makeup at all.

 

Also, what’s up with Col Gurten Lena? She’s fat, and her shirt has tension folds at the buttons, but it curves right around her breasts in a way that shirts exactly don’t but that makes her look essentially naked.

That confused me too. I thought, “Man, that doesn’t look like his style ...”

It's not a shirt, it's bodypaint...

      This will have to do for now. This is short,  or it's been on a while. 8 days left.
      1-4 minis, kids on bikes (and/or skateboards) style, shipping included.

      Story
      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
       
       
       
       
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      Story
      Before the great rot, death was permanent. Unfortunately, death for those who were affected by the Soul Rot wasn't the end.
      The Soul Rot forced the soul to live on after the body gave up, condemning the soul to live forever in the state it left the body. These poor souls are known as Geists.
        Welcome to the first campaign by Fleshcraft studio!
              Working on a scary campaign for your DnD group? Or wanna expand the looks of your undead armies? Well, “unfortunately” for you, the ghosts have come to haunt you! In this campaign, you will receive a set of terrifying digital 3D ghosts in the .stl format.

                  Every model will have 2 options included:
      Presupported STL file. Download and print! Clean model. No supports   Pledges are very simple, and is boiled down to 2 types of pledges:
      1. Personal use - Get the core set + all stretch goals in the stl format. Ready to download right after the end of the campaign. Personal use only. Print ‘n’ Play.
      2. Merchant License - All of the above, but including a Merchant license, allowing you to sell physical copies of these models in your shop.

      5 x Unique modelled Infantry units with lethal finger claws.
      Dangerous criminals hidden away from society in the deepest dungeons, these crooks were sentenced to never see daylight again, yet, the Great Rot managed to find a way down to them. After succumbing to the Rot, these criminals are now bloodthirsty revenants seeking out to ravage anything in their way!
       All models come with a customized 32mm round base
