I was about to place an order for the newer scenery and restocks but not with that level of detail considering the prices. Please do let us know what you find out and if better quality is possible.

I’m pretty sure I know what happened here, but need to confirm.

As such, I’d say if you were ordering any of the new sets, Liberty prime or the barriers you won’t have any issue.

If you were ordering the new sets of wave 1 scenery, hold off until I check the situation.

Having reviewed the situation regarding the difference in appearance of some scenic sets that was identified yesterday, I can now confirm the following.

The re-mastered wave 1 scenery sets (Nuka Cola Machines, Heavy Consoles, Terminals, Vault Tec Cases, Radioactive Barrels) were moved from our current production factory that makes the gaming figures to our new in house casting facility.

This was to allow us to increase production and reduce the costs of production on scenic items. This lead to us bringing the products back into stock and also allowed for a price drop on all the wave 1 scenic sets.

On discussion with our in house team, I have identified that two sets, the Heavy Consoles and the Nuka Cola Machines had new 3D prints created for mastering. These were done on a Form 2 machine.

As was identified yesterday, there is a difference in of some detail as a result.

Below are some shots of the studio paint jobs of the casts of the remastered wave 1 sets, which were from the same production run as was shown in the photo taken by a customer yesterday. We feel the quality of the scenery is of an acceptable standard to sell.

If customers do not feel these two sets (again, to reinforce its only the Nuka Cola Machines and the Heavy Consoles that were reprinted on the Form 2) then we advise they do not purchase them. The new run of the Scenic Starter set also contains the remastered pieces that will match the detail seen.

We are always striving for higher quality and since mastering these sets have upgraded to a new 3D printer that has been used for the entire wave 3 and 4 mastering process.

Hopefully this reassures everyone that we are always looking to ensure the best possible quality and that we do constantly upgrade our kit to get ever better results, but if you are unhappy with the quality or just need to ask questions, please do contact support@modiphius.com as usual, or else drop me a message or PM.

Shame to see them getting less detailed, but they still look pretty good IMO (I just ordered the scenic starter while it was briefly back in stock).

Hey all.

Second Friday of the month so its Fallout release day.

This month its the X01 and Armoured Dogmeat box, plus new stock of the Sentrybot and the Assaultron and Protectrons.

We have also put up some new scenery bundles for folks looking to build a table or collect the full set of scenery to date.

The Vault Tec Bundle has been updated and is also live once again with all the wave 1 product. A full wave 2 bundle will be along with next month's release of Vermin and Ghouls .

For friends of our robotic overlords, Jon Webb on Facebook:

There are no new robots in wave 3, but the Automatron card pack let’s you build custom robots mixing up various bodies, legs and weapons.

So, you have to provide your own skulls and spikes for now, but you can field all manner of new robot creation.

Future plans do include new robot sculpts of course.


Neat. I was hoping for that.

Also, by James Sheahan:

In addition to what Jon said, the Automatron deck also includes Robot Mods and Perks to add extra capabilities to your Robots themselves and/or to the Robots under the command of a Robot Controller.

The promo figure for wave 3 is the Mechanist too, so you even get a thematic faction controller to lead your robots into war...

Or would that be Craig Charles?

Nice! I especially like the objective / searchable markers. Kinda wish I hasn't made my own now! Will they have a recess underneath so you can put them over a token?

Sadly not. That would have been an awesome feature :(

Bit of a shame that the Enclave is taking longer than I hoped, at least T-51 power armor is on the horizon. Yay! Oh, and if the schedule holds up I can totally sell the appearance of T-51 as March to Victory. Take that, commies!

Kellogg looks good. I had hoped for one or two Gen-3 Synths in Institute armor as that looks cool and could have been easily repurposed for Survivors. Unfortunately there's only the kneeling one. Better than nothing, but not ideal. Well, for my purposes anyway.

Good to see the workbenches, too. I'm way behind on my terrain projects and having all sorts of clutter and furniture available now to decorate them is great. The workbenches should add a nice touch.

Would have been nice, but just like the terminals and crates the objective markers will work fine as the actual pieces to reach with the cardboard marker next to them denoting what they are.

Yeah, I put the appropriate tokens for the mission in a bag like I'm getting ready to play Arkham Horror! Then I draw one when I get in base contact with an objective marker. It isn't as slick as having the markers sitting on top of the tokens but it does help to cut down on the number of tokens on the table.

Oh, that's a good method, too!

I'm not bothered about any cutter myself. Generally I like what Modiphius has done with their tokens. They're small and not very intrusive. Except objectives which are larger and brightly colored, which I'm fine with because I'm not getting any younger.

Also on a personal note, I got E-Mail notification this morning that democracy is on its way. Yay!

I'm waiting until batch 2 to let others see how Liberty Prime turns out, but am definitely interested.

I got mine today and had a little time to clean it up for the most part. Liberty Prime is my first large resin model so I don't know how it compares to Forge World or large resin monsters of other manufacturers, but I'm happy with what I got.

The model I got is not without little kinks. The torso was slightly banged up with very minor rough spots on a few edges and an indentation in an armor plate, probably from handling at the factory or the parcel getting thrown around during shipping. The latter is likely responsible for the pointy end of one of Prime's backpack coils breaking off. There's a short stretch in one leg where apparently the resin did not fill out the mold and left an uncast gash in an armor plate. That's going to need filler. Finally, there are two or three air bubbles in plain sight, and a few more in joints that will be hidden once the model is assembled.

Nothing major and nothing that upset me. I don't know how that compares to other manufacturers, but that's nothing that's going to take any noteworthy work to fix.

The casting quality of the details is good and in line with what I've come to expect from Modiphius. Objectively though it's hard to compare Liberty Prime with human sized models as the detail size is vastly different. But the finest details on Prime, I'm going to say that's the small air vents he has in some places, are crisply cast and larger pieces follow suit.

Mold lines range from minor to barely existent, usually with one on the one end of each piece and the other found on the other end. There's is a bit of flash in a few places, particularly between the fingers, but that's resin for you. The only major parts to clean up are the large injection ports or whatever those things are called, but I understand that's just a thing with large resin models. There was no mold slippage on my model, and with the exception of one part on the forearms the mold lines seem to be placed as conveniently and out of the way as possible.

The base detail seems a little softer and there's what I figure is a concrete slab sculpted on it that I'm not sure couldn't have been done better. The base is also 1.2cm thick without any of the debris sculpted on top of it and is a solid murder weapon, with what feels like easily enough weight to stop an assembled Liberty Prime from tipping over. I can't say until mine is fully assembled but for now I'll assume he'll stand on uneven ground well.

The fit of the joints seems good from quick dry fitting to get a general idea, and the pyramid shaped positioning aids seem to do their job and add more surface area sunken into the respective pieces to add stability. I don't think there's any strict need for pinning, but I'll have to see how I feel about it once everything is cleaned up and I can devote proper time to dry fitting.
