  1. It depends how the resin is prepared, if a vacuum pump is used to draw the air bubbles to the surface, prior to the resin being poured in to the mould, then the number of air bubbles is greatly reduced. This is a longer process and depends on the resin being used, as with a quick curing resin, it's not possible. A lot of main resin companies such as Broken Toad, use a vacuum system to reduce the number of air bubbles, however as they recently experienced, vacuum systems can explode.
  2. Quality Control has certainly been slack on this set. Checked the rest this morning and have to say I agree with the comments about Minerva's facial feature, and my Rundaas' torso too, is a little misaligned, not so the torso over stands the legs, but certainly the belt is going to be very thick at the back, unless I add some green stuff to pack the back out a bit. Surely when a figure is in two parts, then some sort of alignment or spigot pin should be employed, to make sure the parts match up correctly. I really hope that this does not happen with the Godtear PVC sets next year, I've over £700 invested in sets, so don't want to waste my investment, as some of them are gifts for friends.
  3. I wish I'd taken a photo now, before I tried to repair my leaning goalpost, it was leaning to the left and forward, as you looked at it from the front. And when it broke off you could see that only that quarter of the surface had made contact with the base underneath, the other 3/4 was unmelded PVC, hence why it broke off so easily.
  4. It's not bent, it was never properly positioned on the base. The post is quite thick, but the factory have glued them to the base at an angle, not straight as they should be, I think the spigot that pins it to the sculpted base is slightly to large, so not fitting properly.
  5. @el009 - to date, I've been very impressed by the quality of the SFG PVC stuff and it has rivaled their metal figures, which I have quite a few. The Daughter of Falcons, however, seem to have been rushed in production at the factory, poor assembly and little if any Quality Control. @Igpus - You might find as I did, that it's the spigot that is causing the problem, when mine broke off. after cleaning up the base and the odd bit of PVC on the bottom of the Post, that the spigot is slightly too large, so I had to file it down the diameter, to get it to sit in properly.
  6. I'm not normally one to complain, but having eagerly awaited the Minor Guild for the Hunters, I am a little disappointed. I received my set today which i purchased from a LGS rather than SFG direct as I would normally, because I wanted the Limited Edition mini, which was included in the LGS bundle. On inspecting the figures, I've found that a number of them have major mould lines on them, and more urgently, that the Goal Post mini was leaning over at a strange angle. In the the process of straightening it, it snapped off, lucky where the bottom is joined into the base. With care and a little bit of careful scrapping away, I've been able to superglue the Goal post back into the base, at a more reasonable angle, so it look straight. Of late, I've been championing SFG's PVC quality on a number of Kick Starters, I hope that the set of Daughter of Falcons, I have received is a one off. I hope the Quality of both the Godtear, Critical Role and Dungeon and Doggies minis that I'll be receiving next year are back to the standard of the Farmers and Blacksmiths Guild box sets, which were of a very high quality. I'll have to reconsider purchasing future Minor Guilds for the Major Guilds I have. Martin

    Sold - Dark Harvest Giveaway (UK Only)

    These have now gone. Thanks to the people that made enquiries about them.
  8. Hi, Giving away Dark Harvest mini's all with custom 3D printed base (See photo), complete with cards. Only flaw the candle flame on Snakeskin's head stone was so fragile it broke off and was lost. Reason for getting rid, getting out of Guild Ball. Happy to send to UK resident, for £10 to cover postage. Martin

    PVC Fishers and Butchers

    All new PVC sets contain the Cardboard versions of the team tokens, normally under the minis. The LE Piper model, is only available from LGS that sell the product as an advanced order Wyldstorm Games is one such place.

    PVC Fishers and Butchers

    I think you only get the LE Piper, from Retailers. The set price has gone up to £45 for the Six players, Goal and Terrain piece, I think that all of the Minor Guilds will be £45/set of 6 and possibly any new Major Guilds that come out. I think that new Major Guilds will be a few years away, as I think the Minor Guilds are taking priority.

    PVC Fishers and Butchers

    Slightly off topic, but going back to the comment that ForestRambo made about Godtear not being for Board gamers as it's metal. Only the Early Access Playtest kits are metal, so people who signed up for it, get a chance to shall we say 'mould' the rules and abilities of the Characters. The Actual production Godtear, will be released via a Kickstarter campaign, later this year, in PVC. The metal play tester Champion sculpts are themselves limited editions, so may not be available later on. I think the biggest issue is the number of campaigns running on both Indiego and Kickstarter for Guild Ball related stuff, and then the Early Access Kit for Godtear, all hitting at the same time. Like many on this discussion, I've pledged for both teams, then my invite for Godtear arrived and I really wanted that too, so again I've paid for that, so I've already forked out $370-490 (Depending on which Additional Godtear models you buy). And then on Kickstart BrokenToad launch resin goal posts and terrain, which look great, but I've got no spare cash to get any of them, I've already stretched my meager monthly budget for minis, by a very long way. It should have been spaced out better, I'd have got the Godtear Early Access out first as that is still in the Player Test/Development stage, the one of the PVC teams say 1 month or 6 weeks later and the last PVC team another 1 month or 6 weeks after that. The BrokenToad stuff is out of SFG control, but at least it would have made it easier for people to pledge their Support for SFG on the various 'new' releases. Cause don't forget, there's the Ratcatchers heading out soon as well.
