I don't think they should be too concerned about Monolith.

As far side know, Monolith are doing a one-and-done kickstarter due to their difficulties getting stores to stock Conan.

While, yes, it could hurt the sales of individual minis (EG Croc) them probably find overall that period just buying the board game probably won't have heard of their game. Or people will buy both.

Because we Are talking franchises and fans here after all.

They should if they keep up their crappy attitude. A lot of folks are waiting for the monolith ks to get minis to use so they dont have to give km cash. Their models may be nice but km as a company are a stain on wargames

Show me on the dolly where KM hurt you...

There are some pretty models in the Monolith offering (lovely Bane) but if it is just the niche of people who play BMG and dont want to giver KM money, well there is Heroclix for that.

Glory is fleeting. Obscurity is forever.

I have had more issues with quality control over the past month. This will be the 3rd time I have to contact customer service due to something missing.

Ive had more issues recently too with qc. I placed two orders for around $600 of bmg each (tried to get all the metal stuff before it went away). One out of four packages was either missing pieces, miacast, or missing cards. Right now I'm still missing:

Card for one of the Gorillas
Sinnestro arm
Entire body for a metal amazon
Entire body of a spice minion (two face spice set)
Miscast bane guy with armor and rifle
Several bases

I've emailed them a couple times and got no response. I gave up and placed an order with miniature market to make sure I get metal replacements...

I also bought the new batman starter... batman had a broken ear (missing the broken piece). I bought two more sets, each had broken ears with one about half the length of the other... gd it all!

My rule book order from October turned up today.

Metal Swamp Thing - No idea what they have done to his body but it's filthy, should be able to clean it up. All parts present.

Zatanna - All fine.

Demon / Jason Blood - Blood is fine but Demon is missing half a foot. Will be awkward but can green stuff something together.

Constantine - Have the body, missing the left arm with spirit attachment.

Knightfall Batman - Missing a chunk of the cape, will be awkward but should be able to green stuff a repair.

Red Son Superman - All okay.

So will just need to request the missing arm for Constantine.

Still waiting for a response to my last customer service request where my Flashpoint Batman came with a leg / arm sprue but no body and a Deathstroke who was missing half his head.

Just checked my unmade Batman starter and he thankfully has two ears present.

Quality control has never been great from Knight models but seems to be suffering even more with the move to Resin, hopefully when they become more experienced it will become better. I don't know a lot about resin production but one of the main issues I am coming across is that the moulds are being under-filled so some extremities (Batman ears, models feet, cloaks, etc) are missing.


Edit: Was really keen to play a Justice League Dark squad back in October when I placed my original order. Not certain how I will actually feel when I finally get the models ready in March when I anticipate I will get replacement parts.

it's more likely a bit of a previous castings (eg ear) has broken off in the mould so every cast from now on will be dud until they replace the mould (or dig it out),

a pretty common problem with resin when you're trying to cut costs

If you receive a cast that has defects, it should be replaced (at the cost of sending the miniature back to the company). If I buy a new pair of jeans, I wouldn't accept it having holes, even if I could fix them with needle and thread.

I hope they sort their casting issues out, as this has been going on for quite some time now. They have some really ace miniatures that I wouldnt mind getting at one point or another.

I do “love” that predicting/worrying they’d have casting/qc issues with the resin is what got me banned from ACL, but low and behold.

@inmygravenimage, very cool contest you got going there just giving you props... won't be participating because I don't use FB but still.

@ all.... did anyone else place an order for the stuff last month my vendor is still saying the Magic book is on back order or some BS like that and that is why my stuff hasn't shipped. (ordered 2 face resin crew, batgirl, enchantress, and magic book)

Anyone else having this problem or know about this?

As far as I know, in the UK at least, my last order is sitting waiting at the store for me to pick up since around Christmas Eve.

Where, naturally, I had already left to do Christmas things with family.

Somewhat OT, but I got to play through Monolith's Batman Miniature Board Game the other night. My thoughts are here:
