HeroForge Custom mini KS

I've received my KS rewards.  mini finish quality is a solid "meh".  The grainy texture makes the mini look like it got dusted with talc.  It's ok at arms length, but not something I'd be proud of putting on the table.  I do wonder if acetone or alcohol could improve the surface texture.


Try with a coat of gloss varnish.

Just a little bit of near necromancy, I did try a gloss vanish coat, but the grainy text remains.  maybe exposure to solvent fumes would help smooth it out.  i'm not sure, but also not equipped to try.

Sad to hear people's experiences were so negative. I've only had three HF minis printed, but I was satisfied with their quality each and every time. I have a huge selection of personally designed minis, and I considered backing for the STLs so that I could go third party and get them for a bit less, but I opted not to. C'est la vie.

Their monochrome models look infinitely better than their collored models.

 

Their original monochrome models were just as bad, but they got better.

 

VERY happy with the Impact print of the HF STLs.

 

So glad I warned Grump off.

It should be said, all of mine were printed at least a year prior to this KS, if not further back, so they were the standard grey. I should do a show-off thread for them...

I got Megan some figures when Heroforge was brand new... the quality was not good - and the minis were incredibly fragile - we are talking about breaking when drybrushed levels of fragility. More like tiny particles glued together than a solid model.

 

A later model was much, much better - grey plastic, better detail, and could handle a bit of abuse.

 

That said - the ones we got from Impact, using the STLs we pledged for on the KS, are even better than the Heroforge one from last year. (And two were of the same model I designed for Megan on the early Heroforge. ::): )

 

The color ones have a rough texture, and the colors are... weird.

 

But they are nowhere near as fragile as those early Heroforge models, and the detail is good, even if the texture is... kind of rough.

 

The Auld Grump - We know two people that bought them.

@PaganMegan @TheAuldGrump   Thank you so much for the kind words on my 3-D Printing service.   Very glad you are happy.  I just found this thread tonight.   I keep trying new equipment and new resins to make sure I get the best quality 3-D prints that I can for people that have the most details while being durable (not brittle) so you can game with them.

 

If anyone tries our service and has an issue ... I promise to do my best to make it right.   Really made me smile to see the thumbs up for the work!

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
