You usually can survive without minis for a few more week just fine though.

My guess is that Manchu needs money for all those things as well and doesn't relish the thought of just throwing away his money without his say-so even if it is technically classified as disposable income.

An astute guess!

Remember this (not so) little lady?

She wont be released through Hasslefree any time soon (there's about 18 months worth of releases to get through first) so I was pondering selling her myself as a limited edition.

The big question is: Kickstarter or Ebay? Which would you prefer?
All I can say is.. ouch. 18 month backlog.

I wonder if the customer production queue for paid for items is that long or if he is just referring to the from master to production mould time.

The latter, he's been happily sculpting away all the time and those sculpts have yet to be put up for sale.

Hey, if they intend to stay in business for another eighteen months, maybe they'll even get around to sending me my stuff. Wouldn't that be something?

In good news, for me anyway, I made a small order last week and it arrived within a couple of days.

Hope they get their health and everyone's orders sorted asap and get back to being the old Hasslefree - fast and reliable.

I wanted to post on their Facebook group to ask for advices on painting their models (thought those questions I had in mind might be too raunchy for Dakka lol), but it was down. Anyone knows about it? Is it okay to ask raunchy questions about raunchy miniatures if you put a NSFW tag in the title ?

Did some checking, it would indeed appear that their page has been pulled. Maybe someone with access to their newsletters knows something more? Kev hasn't commented on it yet, not that I think he will, but it may be a recent thing.

Good! Sorry for the needless upping of the thread, looking forward to posting there .

Two bits from Facebook:

Sally here:

I honestly understand how frustrating the last 18 months have been and for those who have stuck with us “Thankyou “ from Kev and I.

If it seems as if you are getting repeat requests for information from us it is because Dameon C Reynolds is overwhelmed in the unit catching up with orders and I am collating all of the issues each day and sending them to him so that he doesn’t have to waste time hunting for info through email/FB/messenger.

I can’t force you to give me repeat information however if you want me to get things resolved then please communicate with me. However please do not shout at me, do not swear at me, do not threaten me or abuse me .... I am a mum of 4 and kiddie tantrums don’t work.

Thankyou x


And from Kev:

The very first casting of my 75mm Artemis


Spoiler:


A first cast, so still rough around the edges.

They're still looking at how to best sell this model, either through their own lagging online store, or through a crowdfunding platform.

Been a while since I last heard anything about Hasslefree, but the following popped up on Facebook earlier today:

Sally here:

Until a few years ago HF ran like a well-oiled machine and then unpredictable circumstances literally made it stop. It was always a juggle for casting new releases versus restocks of older figures but mostly we coped.

The ‘emergency stop’ 2 years ago hit the organisation and routine very hard, before long we found ourselves struggling to keep on top of everything that needed doing. There are still a few unresolved issues from that time but mostly I am assured they are sorted.

At last it seems like there might be a light at the end of the tunnel, we have releases due soon, restocks of both minis and other resources coming through and soon we will be able to start the long-awaited ‘catch-up’ of unreleased figures that Kev has still been sculpting even through the ‘emergency stop’.

We really do appreciate the way you have supported us throughout this difficult time and thank you all so much for sticking with us.

I went to the resin casters today so decided to share a few pictures that show the scores of as yet unreleased figures that I hope will give you reassurance that we are finally (fingers crossed) getting there x







So, hopefully soon we'll be seeing a lot of catching up with long overdue metal releases. I know I've been waiting on quite a few to happen for some time now.
