I know this company really polarizes people good and bad, but..I like them.

And they are releasing NEW non KS miniatures now!!!

So, eh..Here's a thread showing off the new stuff to discuss and what not.


First up is the Holy Blades. Hot chicks in field plate..usable in DND and AOS. Apparently they are all sold individually as well if you just want to get one.

Raging Heroes make some great minis. Well, except when you try to clean them and glue them. But the sculpts are nice and their style is ...deliciously(.gif)... over the top. I'm glad they aren't too cheesecakey.


I like those minis a lot. Probably won't like their prices, though. I'll wait a year and see what the online discount ers can sell them for.

New models are much better than any Kickstarter release. I built up their taiphan models if you want to see them. Snake one was pretty cool.




There's also a scifi version of those plate mail ladies so they've got access to guns if you want to use them as sisters.
Spoiler:


I have a box I've been sitting on for a few weeks now that I'm going to try and record today if I have time.


Also there's new Jailbirds!

Roxy Rumble, a new heroine...
Spoiler:


The Wild Dogs, who would make a great bunch of Escher stand-ins...


Did they ever get that cathedral out?

Hmm, I like the old Jailbirds and have some. These, I don't know. I think they put too much of their newer (TGG 2) sculpts into them. Too overdone, even for Raging Heroes.

Edit: New models without Kickstarter is nice, though.

They offer some pretty good sales when the minis come out...maybe slightly higher than GW prices..which for a boutique caster is a hell of a deal.

Just be warned she's a lot smaller than Morathi.

She comes with a 40mm base for the larger snake version after all. Which I guess would make her a bit less of a target.

Size wise I'd say Taiphan is more in line with a Daemon Prince. Nice model though.

Basic snake isn't all that large. I'd use her as a daemon prince more than anything else. After all she comes with a 40mm base!

I'd recommend it though, as it was a nice kit and was a fun one to build. Can't speak for painting it yet...

Yup, their heads are sure greater than their torsos. Was the sculptor blind or that unfamiliar with human anatomy? It's specially baffling seeing Taipan mini linked below has much more sensible proportions (at least in human form, snake one looks wonky too) and is far better looking design thanks to that.

And it's not just anatomy, the magazines in the pistols (?) the SF version has is one of the most comically wrong gun parts I have ever seen in a model, right up there with Forge World upside-down bolters. Not just shape, they look like 'heroic' GW scale part attached to more sensibly scaled handgun. I especially like how ejection port looks quater size of actual bullet and is placed way too far to the rear...

Well, the anatomy/proportions are insane. Looks like skeleton warriors might fit in the armour, and the heads are big as helmets in comparison.
But models this small will need to have weird proportions to make sense on the gameboard. Heroic scale looks way more interesting than true scale.
Just look at infinity -they have lots of cool realistic models, and its uterly boring and wasted unless you have them pro-painted and displayed up on a painting forum (and even then, you get bored after a dozen models).

Its a fact in most depicting art -you dont paint/sculpt it as it is, you need paint/sculpt it to trick the eye in seeing what it is.
For these models, anyone that see them on the gaming board or on a painting forum, would instantly recognise their function and general concept.

Yeah, Raging heroes stuff is not any worse proportioned than GW stuff...which is particularly painful. Especially Guardsman


I mean..that las-gun is effectively 6 feet long and the magazine is the size of his comically giant head. Space Marines are now only slightly better than they used to be.

If you play GW games or use GW Miniatures then I cant imagine why you would ever complain about any company having weird proportions or ridiculous sized guns.

Meh. That "Real Soldier"'s backpack is comically oversized and that gun barrel is going to break before the first game. Torso detail is OK, but those pants have zero depth in their sculpting. Pretty terrible model and probably not even available in plastic.

If that picture proves one thing it's that different styles and scales don't match very well. Raging Heroes deliberately tries to sell alternative Warhammer models, and it's not a bad thing to edge their proportions closer to GW's to avoid conflicting visuals. It's actually a selling point.

Sure it is a joke, but the point is real. Tabletop minis proportions should be tailored to their purpose and not be slaves to realism.

On that note, I love the Raging Heroes Paladin chicks, apart from their wastes. I think that waste size is fine for the Jailbirds, but for the Paladins I want to see more something more load-bearing.

Quite surprised they're doing non-KS releases all of the sudden. I've been getting emails on an almost daily basis from them now and I thought it was all KS stuff they're finally getting around to releasing normally.

They were releasing miniatures before they start their first Kickstarter, you know.

This is their usual business. Also, I believe they are pretty much aware of the rage and hate still lingering on the net about their various Kickstarters. The Warstage one is still ongoing, and it's not really doing well. So better do it the old way, at least the only bad that can happen is people not liking their miniatures and just not buying them.

Hehehehe, sorry, you must be new here when it comes to Raging Heroes and some of the Dakkanauts, including me.

I am aware of that they were an actual somewhat punctual company before KS, I have the original Kurganova sisters, in metal, along with the bulldog. It was that quality that made me back their first KS aeons ago.

I'm just surprised that they managed to move beyond the KS stage, as some companies get stuck in there and always need another KS to release new models.

Good on them I suppose.

And got a KS email from them just now, their next KS is coming this Fall.

I like them a bit more now, they're repping BLOOD MACHINES from Carpenter Brut, awww yissss!

Definately have to agree here. GW's weapons and hands are rediculously proportioned. Also aside from Juan Diaz i don't think anyone at GW knows what an actual woman looks like. Their female sculpts are all pretty manly and rediculous bar a few.

I was surprised to see their new message via KS. I thought they wanted all traffic and conversation directed to their website.

In the end I was pretty satisfied with what I got from TGG2. Once things wanted to go together they pretty much stayed that way.

The post-KS releases have been nice and much more cooperative to build. Even KS models I've gotten at retail had less issues than the actual KS versions (yeah, I double dipped on some of them).

No, I've been following their kickstarters from the first one and I keep receiving their advertisements for their website on a regular basis. They never stopped.

Their site is always full of their annoying pop up messages telling mister X has bought product Y that you don't care about. But yeah, if you don't mind all of this, the new miniatures are indeed nice.

"Heroic Scale" was completely awful, but it has been dying off for years now. It's really not fair to bring up a comparison that's probably nearly twenty years old when what they make now is extremely different. Meanwhile, Games Workshop has produced so few female miniatures. Are you referring to the Juan Diaz Daemonettes? Aside from Arwen, they're the only female miniatures I can find that he's made. And they really, really aren't what "actual women" look like. New Celestine, Severina Raine, female Genestealer Cultists, and the female Sequitors are much, much more realistic than anything by Juan Diaz or Raging Heroes.

Since I got kicked out of the project for being "too negative" I still watch that disaster from time to time and enjoy the show.
Unfortunately they seem to have sent a direct e-mail to backers and not use the KS update system.

So... does anybody want to help a friend

I should hope not - they're demons, after all. And ironically those Juan Diaz ones look far too feminine. Over the years there's been a few female characters for various factions, and they all looked sufficiently feminine to me, whether that be a dark elf sorceress, the high elf everqueen, a dwarf queen, sisters of battle ... Hairtyles have a lot to do with it, but then that's true in real life too.

Raging Heroes makes good looking models, just never ever invest in their kickstarters because they all seem to be riddled with problems and instead just wait for the models to hit the store itself.

The strong point of these not-GW snake ladies is certainly their dynamism. Raging Heroes sure knows how to play with their snake bodies...I'm betting there is no bone inside of those.

Otherwise, GW's plastic kit is already doing the job, IMHO. Raging Heroes kits aren't interesting unless taken in their so called "bundles".Even so it's sometimes arguable.

Just that IIRC. But it'll be their most ambitious one to date, as the list of features they want to incorporate into their rules is quite staggering.

I just hope it also contains a decent fluff section.

My TGG2 was a fething mess of unlabelled bags. I don't even know if they sent me everything, because I bought someone else out, and then they only sent me one set of the freebies, and then told me that they'd send me the others "later" because they were doing those only as 1 per backer. And the whole experience was just so horrible in the end I never even opened all of the packages.

How did you manage to clean them up? I've got figures that have been left out "to air" for over a year and they're still a greasy-feeling mess.

Oh, and the relentlessly constant rate of repetitive emails I've been getting spammed with lately made me have to unsub from their mailing list. One email per release, please, not fething five-to-five hundred.

I tried the simple green route. Didn't seem to make much difference, but probably got them clean still.

I ended up spraying a matte sealer on them after that and it seemed to do the job. I'd had similar issues with Prodos models being slimy/sticky and it seemed to solve the issue.

Don't know if it was just my batch or what but it worked.

..I'd forgotten about all those baggies though. You didn't have to remind me!

They are much bulkier ..but not as bulky as the not terminators sister..people...so..mid ground between a sister and a not terminator.

Aka a not space marine....sister....

It's how they were announced in the latest newsletter: "What's tougher than Marines in Space?"

With a name like "Vanquishers" I initially thought these were their ersatz-Terminators, would've made more sense.

Its the usual raging heroes formula. More complicated poses and bigger boobs. That's pretty much the same for each of their 'GW-inspired' lines.

Oh no, those can't possibly be female, they aren't in heels. RH wouldn't ever release something with shoes so uninspired as flats on a female miniature and anyone who complains is simply trying to drag the company's vision through the mud.

My soap box is made of fething salt here. I argued with these dinks for ages to try and get my money back when they changed from booted sisters to their final product, and now, oh look there IS interest in such things.

Last thing I'll say, don't kickstart them, you have no real idea what they'll look like by the end no matter how detailed they look now.

They are developing and releasing models outside of a KS campaign again, so that's something. This may be them striking whilst the iron is still heating up, getting out as much as possible before GW drops the revamped Sororitas range later this year and steals the thunder of most third party not-sisters companies out there.

On the models: They have a nice chunk and mass to them, but the poses some of the models have don't work for me. RH likes to use certain dynamic poses a lot, which is supposed to make the models pop and more unique, but for me personally, it makes them look more alike with their models from other ranges, as certain poses just keep popping up all the time. There's also the feeling that these are great for a one-off squad, but not for army building, as every squad would look the same. Unless these have more options for arms and heads included?

YMMV obv.

After building the new chaos marines..these girls look positively bare.

I will happily use them for a one off squad or kill team or ..whatever. But I hate painting the same damn thing over and over again..my armies look pretty hodge podge.

And, apart from the delay..(which admittedly I've become numb to because of every ks Ive ever backed being astoundingly late) I was super pleased with the results of all their kickstarters. I'll back the next one.

These don't look like space marines to me, at least not any more than Shieldwolf's Primaris-sized space sisters. They do look cool, though.

Still, I was promised salty tears. :.(

Similar story to others. I have tons unbuild minis from two KS in boxes. Was really like Kurganowas sisters and during KS I go crazy stupid.
What I still like: beautiful female faces with lots of expresions and character. Cool ideas.
Don't like: Heads proportions seams bigger on model then on renders. And I thing they grow with next projects. TGG2 was a mess . Not butique, top quality experience. To many spam and promotions. And looks for me that buying normal in shop is better way then KS.

And I will still get a ton of the upcoming GW SoBs when they release, because too many miniatures is really never enough.

I wonder how they'd stack up to Stormcast as that's what they seem to be inspired by.

Some of the poses look a bit off to me. Like they reused a basic pose and laid the armor on top of it.

I am tempted though...

The tiny waists feel really off. It's like... it's supposed to be armor but the waists are so thin that it just doesn't make it feel like armor. Well, for me at least.

The small waists make them look like they're wearing corsets. Gives them even more of a Late Middle Ages French look.

Makes as much sense to bring a corset to battle as it does golden halos, capes, rosaries, and other superfluous gear.

Still looks great.

Yes, their girls are very thin. Also, some poses look like they're breaking some bones or, at least, are very painful.

They're quite nice, if you can accomodate the material they're made with. Raging Heroes made a lot of progress since the kickstarters, but you still have to handle their miniatures with care. They're so thin I'm always afraid to break them, even if most are still in one piece after all that time. But then I don't play often with them.

I love these designs too, but I have no use for them.

Well, I may be able to use them in WarCry as a "counts as" force.

Hmmm...probably that is the actual intent of the sculpts.

I'd say use them as (expensive) female Bloodreavers. You can use them in warcry, sure, but they look a bit too elite to represent a whole band.

WarCry groups are already kinda elite. Considering the only real restriction is on leader runemarks, why not have a bunch of counts as girls?

I'm in. Always a bigger fan of fantasy than I am scifi stuff as it is.

I wonder if they'll go full circle and repurpose these girls into chaos cultists somehow down the line.

I think they're just the fantasy counterpart of their Wild Dogs. Raging Heroes doesn't always make the same kits both for SF/fantasy. It's very clear those are specific, I doubt they will use the same miniatures as base for something else.They're better off with making whole new "character" miniatures.

They're totally scaled well. I know I put some videos up of them on Youtube. Or recorded them at least.

Given a good paintjob they will totally blend in well, especially if you run a lot of converted models. Nobody would be none the wiser in that case.

When you get down to it, a SoB is just a female Marine. Literally the only difference is a few lines in background of the game. If you removed the augumenting, black templars could comfortably apply for Sisters of battle job postings.

Skull-Face-Axe-Warhawk Chicks look the business, I'd Warcry them in a heartbeat if I hadn't already promised myself I'd hard pass on the game until at least 2020. I do prefer RG minis with a little less going on, but I get that these and the Jackals are intentionally dialed-up-to-eleven bonkers.

Seems I had an extra discount code as it was for RH so I went ahead and took the plunge. That and free shipping didn't hurt.

Their weapons don't really match the Untamed Beasts "all bone all the time" style. Doesn't mean I wouldn't try supplementing them in a WarCry band.

In the story for Untamed Beasts they do use flint weapons and many of their bone weapons clearly have some flit blades jammed into them. I figure flint and stone are valid for them as weapons. It's more refining materials like metals which they would have in very short to no supply

They threatened to do some male elf torsos during TGG2, but I scoffed and then immediately lost track of whether those saw production or not.

ASIDE: I just kicked the Deserts of Death KS, and had the thought this morning that I keep seeing new elf lines that are entirely female. Coincidentally these are also the only elf lines I've thrown money at. Hmm.
