Ha!

No harm intended!

Hobby Budget must be obeyed - I can only have so much of it tied up in transit between here and Russia!

While I have your attention...

Are the Fire Drake Prime and Shadow Hunter Prime models 'bigger' scale so as to represent Phoenix Lords?

Any plans for a Dire Avengers Prime model or Asurmen alternative? Would love to see that.

Not so much i own both and they are a bit slimer than other Eldar models from GW but they blend flawlessly.

Tomorrow after work i can take a pic of them side by side with new Jain zar or other Eldar models if you wish.

Yes, please, and thanks!

Karandras is my all time favorite Eldar character, so if this model would made a good modern 'counts as' for him, that'd be great...

Got the pic, hope it looks good enough for you, luckily i had an old Karandras body in the pile so can compare it next to the Shadow hunter Prime.

Spoiler:


As pointed before ArtelW models are a bit more slim than GW heroic scale but it's not a huge difference and the quality and final look in the table helps them to blend perfectly with normal Eldar miniatures.

We`re working on other Warrior Cult right now, but we want to make `em all eventually.

Same here. Awaiting delivery of the initial order to physically inspect the models (if they arrive, of course) before I place any further orders.

I just received a shipment from a different company that I'd made back in January. Shipping is messed up all over.

Artelw cast production it's a bit slow but worth the quality, also i noticed the packages can be stuck in russian Limbo for a while on customs and moreso since the covid issues, mine was from 5th april till 24 as example.

We just knew that Russian Post basically piling up parcels to USA from March. They have only two their own airplanes, and both mostly flying to China. Usually RP sending mail with passengers and cargo jets, but with cancelling of flights they were in BIG trouble - wish they`d tell so three months ago.
So, European shippings was done, but very slow, with trains and such. Some overseas was sent by see or through european hubs. Most was just piling up at the RP warehouses. Now situation is better, but waiting will be long. Sorry, guys.

Yeah, I'm waiting on another Russian vendor, and so far, nothing has shown up. Furthest I can trace the delivery is it made it to St Petersburg and apparently went into a wearhouse there.

So everyone relax, it's not just Artel.

I ordered just over a month ago and its still not even shipped, yet alone caught in the Russian postal system. Hopefully will be worth the wait though.

I don't think anyone here is blaming you guys. The world basically shut down and is slowly opening again. Shipping taking longer than usual is expected.

But I am blaming you for making minis cool enough that I had to buy some. Don't stop.

Oh, I`m receiving a lot of blaming via email everyday. Thank you for understanding and patience.

My order finally changed to shipped so now it's up to the Russian Post to get it headed my way. всё отлично

In the meantime I had found an importer on eBay and gotten some other examples of Artel W miniatures. Over the years I've had Forgeworld and a good number of third party resin accessories, bases, and alternative models. These are hands down the best I've had in my possession. No flash, negligible mold lines, minimal clean up required. I did find a few bubbles when removing gates, but otherwise these are very, very nice miniatures.

Bubbles?! There should be no bubbles! Can you point me, on which miniatures and where?

Shadow Hunter Squad. I've only prepped two of them for assembly. The Leader has a tiny bubble in the ribbing of his small chainsword and a tiny void after removing the gate which could just be the resin flaking a bit. The bigger bubble is on hunter #5. The bubble is on the bottom of his foot where the gate was. It's perfectly round and about 0.8mm. If you want I can try to take some pictures later so you can see what I'm talking about.

Dammit. That shouldn`t be, it`s a technology fail - I will definitely talk with casters. We can send a replacement if you need it.

No, that's not necessary. These are very minor issues.

How long ago did it reach them? Their tracking has an order I made with another Russian vendor stuck in Saint Petersberg since May 7.

Pressure casting? I was wondering about that.
Beyond that though, nice to see another company that treats their premium product as a premium production.

I have had a few models off these guys now and the quality is insane. Never seen models look so much like their renders. The cast (in my experience) are perfect. So no surprise that your standards are so high. The quality shows. And to all those waiting for Russian post, it will be worth it.

All the minis I've got were practically perfect. I didn't even need to file any mold line!

Also have had a package sitting in Russia since June 1. Don't think Russia is shipping to the US at this point,

They are, but they only have two planes. Russian post usually sends everything by passenger jet.
