Hey guys.

I just wanted to let you all know that my business partner and I have our webstore up and running now.

We are also an official licensed printer for Peculiar companions (a patreon with some sweet fantasy stls).

We are working on adding listings to the store, but I would appreciate it if you guys throw us a view and tell me what you think of it so far.

I'm also happy to answer any questions you may have

https://two-idiots-printing-service.myshopify.com/


(Admins, please message me if this needs to get taken down. I'm happy to comply. I just wanted to post something because i have not yet received a response to my query.)

So, it looks like $2.50 per miniature, yes? What does shipping to addresses in the US cost?

Also, will you be expanding your catalogue to include their African themed army?

1. 2.50 per infantry figure,with bu]k deals using the drop down.

Yes, the African greenskins will be added next. Honestly it's just a matter of getting the listings up.

Cool! I love seeing the entrepreneurial spirit during lockdown. Good luck with it.

Thanks. It is quite fun.

Honestly, being able to help people build big armies is an enjoyment factor for me. to say nothing about building my own collection.

Granted, I am used to gaming with large units of figures too, so its fun to see that epic scale brought to the tabletop again.

Would you be open to printing files for clients? For example, I pledged for Raygun Raptors and Asian Adventures, but I don’t have a great printer. Would you offer a service where I could send you a file for you to print in resin?

I placed an order for 5 Spanish knights and the Spanish knights hero.

The customer service was very good, I had done questions which were responded to very quickly. Namely the material being used, I am not a fan of translucent material so asked if I could get in opaque. The response was, yes. Just send them a note when ordering. The resin might be grey ot could be colored,

So, I placed my order. I believe it was 2 days after I placed my order that I received a shipping notice.., and 2 days for scheduled delivery with tracking. Very fast. Shipping, very good.

I received my order today. I received an extra Knight, and I thought I was supposed to recieve 1 weapon choice per knight, but actually received 5 swords, 5 hammers, 7 lances 5 trumpets and 5 pistols, bonus stuff is always appreciated, great stuff.

I assembled 1 mini. I have a little complaint here, the resin bits that are used for printing are still attached to the model. This was already stated in the description so we’re not a surprise. I have never worked with a 3D print like this, so thought that they would be easy to clean up.., I think it will go better with more practice but.., well my first one did not go well. The second one went better. But overall not holding this against them.

My other complaint isn’t against two idiots, but the models themselves. The prints are a bit small compared to warhammer sized minis, I asked and they stated they could print slightly larger but there may be some detail loss and the price may be a little higher. Which is fair.

Overall I am satisfied with the purchase and am likely to buy again.

Here are some pics. That s Fireforge northmen and a Perry knight for comparison.

I put in an order recently. The detail is crisp, although the translucent material makes it hard to see sometimes. I am really happy with how everything came out, and will probably order more of the Benin orcs and Turko-Mongolian elves. TIPS were really easy to work with even when some of my notes were pretty bad (“action pose full bling with sword” and such), so next time I might try something interesting, like 25% larger warboss or something. Looking forward to my next order.

Here are some pictures and some scale shots with WGA and Oathmark minis. And you can see how easy their bits are to use with HIPS minis.

I feel like the Medusa shields would work well on a Greek hero and his retinue.

What is the head covering on the right side Crow Bearer? It makes me think of a babushka, which somehow makes the elf more interesting to me.

From what I understand it's just a hood with ears slits cut out. And then of course there's the cloak that's clasped just under it.

My thought is that he was trying to mix Roman with some slight religious garb. One of the new units that he's working on currently is essentially Roman chamber militant like the guys from game of thrones. I believe they're going to count as which elves/ whatever name the hotels are called in ninth age.

The chariot is great, and the flying carpet is quite dynamic.

The Zweilhanders are amazing, and loads better than GW greastwords IMHO

For those who play The 9th Age: We were requested if we could come up with a miniature solution to represent Imperial guard with swords and shields.

After clearing it with the artists involved, we are now offering this kitbashed set between Peculiar companions and Caballero miniatures. 28mm spanish heavy infantry converted with swords and shields.

Armies of the sands has dropped, and we have been busy adding all of the new, awesome minis to our webstore. Everything but the sculpted square bases and unit fillers are now live on the webstore. please check it out at the link below and let me know what you think!

We appreciate feedback as it allows us to better ourselves and how we handle product launches.

Renders below are mock ups. For example, I know the torso on the tomb cataphract's snake mount is slightly out of place.

My first suggestion would be to change which pictures show up on the listing or menu pages for the Shabti and cataphracts. The images imply one can buy a set of 3 cataphracts or 5 shabti for $20, when they are $20 per miniature.

I can try that, but due to the variation of items we sell it may cause the catalog pages to look off-putting.

Honestly I truly believed "starting at" would be assumed. That is based on my own personal habits when it comes to online stores (I always go to the actual product page and look at options/drop downs) though so I shouldn't assign that to everyone else.

I’ve shopped on your site before and never had that issue with previous items, even when they were pictured in groups, like the goblins or cavalry. For some reason, though, the larger items aren’t as obvious. $2.50 for one skeleton instead of a regiment is intuitive. $5 for one cavalry guy makes instant sense. But the $20 price tags combined with the images may have triggered my “boxed set recognition” lobe. That price doesn’t instinctively equate to one ushabti for me. I suppose the price makes sense scaling by volume, but it threw me off.

I've edited the photos, so hopefully it makes a bit more sense now.

Maybe 6 inch chunks of full wall, an "end" like a pillar, maybe with an inch of wall attached, and a corner maybe 3 inches per side?

Important for me would be a flat top, as I have "metal fence railings" I want to put on top

For the desert adventurers, how big are the skull heads compared to the Egyptian heads or the less-heroic Turco-Mongolian elves’ heads? Also, do you have any examples of what they look like on Mummy bodies?

For that matter, what if I asked for a bunch of khopesh swords with the living Egyptians?

We could do that as a custom order. That being said, since these were designed for 28mm there may be detail loss, etc.

I have checked in with the designer: The image of the khopesh without a hand was a WIP one to show the intended shape of the weapon, and is not available as a separate file.

No super rush, I saw that Excellent Miniatures were offering the Txarli and Lovecraft designs soon at 10mm - but of course, they're an ocean away, and would love to just order from ya'll. So if you already have plans to do the same, I can just wait

Like I said, we would be able to, but we'd just handle that kind of thing as a manual, custom order as a matter of course. so whenever you're ready feel free to throw us a message and we can help.

The Txarli stuff is designed at 28mm, so excellent probably has just done some legwork merging and then resizing things

Skeleton head pack would have to be 10, 10 and 10 mate. I apologize its just easier on the back-end.

Hello everyone and welcome to the new year! Thank you so much for your orders during our end of year sale!

We have some exciting new projects coming up and are looking forward to a good 2021. Please note that processing times are currently slowed as we work through the massive demand from our end of year sale.

Today I have some new miniatures that we've added to the store. Caballero miniatures has released command groups (standard, musician, champion) for the remainder of their infantry units (Previously only the baseline legion infantry had a command group.) We've released these as group packs, so you can get all 3 command models at once. The below images only represent two of the new command groups.





We've also put up the new Warlock Outcast and Warlock acolyte cavalry onto the store.





You can find them all in the Caballero miniatures section of our webstore, here:
