  1. Has anyone seen any news on whether the SFG webstore loyalty points scheme has been revived? This was also mentioned on facebook, but didn't see an answer. It was shut down last November, and I assumed I would have to write off a year of points that I hadn't cashed in. But today they sent out emails re-notifying the points balance. The balance can also be seen on logging into the webstore, but the "claim reward" button doesn't seem to work currently. It would be great if they do switch it back on (even for a limited time). I understand they sent out one email warning about the scheme being closed down last year, but I think quite a few people missed the warning amongst their general email clutter. (Having lost a lot of points on a hotel website I didn't use for a year recently too, I also think the best consumer advice is to cash in any points/vouchers immediately in future!)
  2. Black Friday order arrived this morning, so tried a quick speed-paint on Roast:
  3. With the Navigators on the way, I guess it's time to finish off the fish. Angel and Salute 2015 edition Kraken make it to the top of the painting queue after three-and-a-half years unfairly spent in the cupboard! The wait at least means Kraken got a fitting Broken Toad base:
  4. Looking good. I like the bases ... ties them all together nicely.
  5. Does Steamforged know they have unexpectedly hit on the next big trend with the Lamplighter's Guild? (Mat Hart was talking about this on podcasts years ago, so I don't think it was planned). Apparently Lamplighters will be central to the new Disney Mary Poppins film ... replacing the chimney sweeps from the original! Alt sculpt Calculus Poppins?

    Quaff?

    How about an alt sculpt of Esters on the warpath, swinging Mash's cricket bat ...

    Are there any Chance for restocks ?

    There claims to be a Chaska here: https://www.dicesaloon.com/
  8. So many good models ... to pick a few maybe Veteran Honour, Granite, Pintpot, Stave, Hag ... navigators are looking good too.

    Are there any Chance for restocks ?

    The coloured resins had some problems up until now ... which resulted, for example, in the recall of the Erskirii wolves world cup team ... small holes/air bubbles etc. in the cast. I think they're now saying that the manufacturer has worked out how to improve the process and the quality should be good going forward. Limited edition Fathom from Steam Con is the first of the "post-improvement" resins ... mine looked in good shape, don't know if anyone got a bad cast on that one? I guess they're going to speed up the release of the resin models now and do it a bit faster than they previously announced. Fish and butchers should be out early next year in resin, with PVC cooks, miners and lamplighters also due in 2019. I'm not sure that it's easier to do resin than metal ... I heard that the resin moulds wear out faster than the metal ones, and you have to spin them for longer to spin-cast them. But I guess Steamforged is keen to push ahead with resin, presumably because they want the models to be pre-coloured to fit with the "ready-to-play" strategy. Personally, still quite like metal ... and can't help thinking the plastic fish/butchers would have paid themselves back in the end if they'd gone ahead.
  10. Have emailed support as well.
  11. I just spotted some messages on the facebook page about the loyalty points scheme having been closed down. I don't remember any message saying the scheme was closing ... but the points do seem to be gone now.

    Black Friday Hay Bales

    This is it ... three hay bales (unpainted). The ball collection is also shown. Blacksmith helmet, rat cheese ball, pumpkin head ball (from Ltd Obulus), Easter ball, mortician symbol ball, falconer bell launch pack ball, Union in Chains ball, turnip ball, blacksmith anvil ball. I notice "Legend" captains are on sale Friday ... these are the Kickstarter versions that haven't been available since November 2016's Black Friday sale, and have been offered for up to £45 on ebay. (Only £9 on Friday). ps. thanks SFG for making the rare models available again!
  13. My best guess: The resin teams are meant to be the ongoing versions that remain on sale for the major guilds after the metal versions are gradually withdrawn. (The withdrawal of the metal teams is an ongoing process that's already started). They should be available direct from Steamforged for the foreseeable future (but with a delay from time to time if they have to make more). I think local stores should theoretically be able to sell these (I've seen at least one in the UK, as posted above). I don't see why local stores would have a time limit. But it looks like most local stores aren't stocking them at the moment, and it might only be ones that are in close contact with Steamforged. (Outpost has sometimes had stock of a few leftover alt sculpts etc. in the past).
  14. Alternative Fathom from Steam Con 2018 ... looking forward to the rest of the Navigators!

    Gaffer becomes a Spook!

    I heard someone at Steam Con wondering which rookie would want to join the morticians! (Given the scary team-mates they'd end up with, and regular diet of rats.) I guess this could make an interesting story ... Obulus targets Gaffer hoping to use his scouting knowledge of the game for his manipulative plans ... Gaffer reluctant, but suffers the fatal flaw of always having wanted to play on a proper team and knows this is his last chance, so agrees to play for morts even though he knows it's a bad idea!
