  1. I guess I can understand the change in Grimshalla, if retailers really thought that the figure would put off potential buyers of the game as a whole. That said, I do hope that SFG will consider making the original version available via their web store as a Limited Edition resin version, for the players who showed faith in the Kickstarter campaign and would like to own it as well. I'd be happy with the STL files, as I have a Resin printer and could possibly produce my own copy.

    Combining shipping on backlogged orders

    I emailed Support soon after the end of the Black Friday sale, about combining shipping and had the following response 'Hello Martin,I am sorry but we are unable to combine orders during the Black Friday sale as orders will be fulfilled on a first come first serve basis.' So I very much doubt, if they will offer combined shipping to any one, I have nearly £300 worth of unfulfilled orders on my Steamforged account at the moment, only 1 of the qualifies for free shipping, as I purchased both sets of Resin Hunters.

    Spoiler Consolidation Thread

    Just bought myself a Resin 3D printer and messing around with making a female Godtear Dwarf character. Found a web site Hero Forge, which gives you the chance to design and get STL files to print. Attached is my design, just need to get the scale right as normally 28mm figures.

    Are there any Chance for restocks ?

    Resin figures use the same type of moulds as metal, unless they are individually printing each one on a Resin 3D printer, which will take forever.

    Black Friday Combined Shipping

    I provided them with a screenshot of the Order numbers, so it wouldn't have been that hard.
  6. I've just sent an email to Support, to see if they could combine the various orders I've made over the Black Friday sale, due to items being Out of Stock and then suddenly Re-stocking, as well as a few additional purchases for a few friends as presents. Due to the way I placed the orders each order had shipping applied, I've been informed that as the orders will be fulfilled on a first come first served basis, that it is not possible. My only thought is that the checkout removed items that weren't in stock at time of payment, so all the items I've paid for must be available. so just looking at my placed and paid for orders, it must be easy to put the items all in one package. I don't really care if they won't refund the additional shipping charges, although something would be nice, I just want them all to come on the same day.

    From what I understand, the original plan was to retire the metal teams and replace them with Resin equivalents as the Minor Guild for each Major came out. Hence, Resin Morticians when the Ratcatchers PVC minor guild was released and Resin Hunters, when the Daughters of Falcons came out. I think that Rich Loxam has posted on Facebook, that their will be some sort of announcement regarding the resin replacement schedule, after the Black Friday sale has ended.

    WTB: Veteran Graves and Bonesaw (and Vileswarm)

    They are currently available on the UK Webstore, Veteran Graves and Bonesaw, at least.
  9. Looking for a Veteran Cinder mainly, if trade available. if not then £10 for the 2 or individually £6. plus postage. Situated in the UK, so would prefer UK buyer, easier to calculate postage. If London based, free delivery maybe available on arrangement. Also have 2 Masters of Spooks (Halloween Obulus with Dirge) £5 each, plus postage. Regards Martin Update 22nd November - Sold
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. @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.
  15. 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
