Thanks, it's the first one I've seen painted.
I changed the spikes from off-white to "off black" which was a painful decision!

Looking good!

Speaking of crab people, picked up my scuttlers trio this morning, and have to say this is a nice cast, not seeing really any bubbles and very, very few mold lines. Loads of pieces per scuttler but everything is labeled and looks a treat to build - I'll admit I sort of was dreading how they'd go together, so happily looking forward to the experience now. So much that I might order one or two more trios

i was told:

selkilias, skorpion major
scethæn, crag beetle
schyrós, venerable khelon

are aiming for early 2019 timeframe.

(i asked about them and another model which was done so i could pay extra shipping to get the stuff done now, or wait for all of it to come next year -- really want something that is done now and waiting so may just pay that extra bit of shipping)

Yeah, well, I'm not backing any more Mierce kickstarters...no point really as they hold massive sales so often you can get anything at similar prices to KS prices, and shipped straight away.
They really are killing their own fanbase...

Late in the day Mierceday updates:

Malevolent Malus

Another cracking and lovely update for Darklands: Savage Hordes II this week with an awesome demon-wizard-dude to show.

Let's have a look at some...



Something for the Byzantii this week... and probably for a few weeks to come!



We start on the Byzantii with the bloody awesome Malus of Antioch, a rather fantastic wizard lord - Magus Infernum Primus to you and me!



Obviously it's early days, but you can see he's going to be a muscly so-and-so...

This guy, whilst being sculpted at the moment, will only be printed in time for Wave 26 - April 2019.

Well it's been a couple of months since the last update so here's another to keep you all up to speed on what's going on.

The Miercendise is proving very frustrating to source I have to say. We only got a sample we ordered in June last week - a big mug - and whilst I can rage all I want at this I've got so far with the branding company it would be unwise to start looking around again. In case you didn't read the last update, whilst we are using one company for the branded stuff, they have to use several different companies themselves and so there's lots of different strands being pulled.

Again, we have excellent progress in many of the miercendise bits, some is even with us, but the main issue is that we want to send your rewards in the same package; which means there will be a delay for most of you. I did say we should see the first shipments in October but that's obviously not happened, for which I can only apologise. We are at the mercy of external production companies again!

With Christmas coming up soon it's very unlikely we'll have everything ready to ship before then: so what we have decided to do is (regardless of the cost to us) ship whatever we can before Chrimbo and the rest when we get it.

Miercendise Progress

Here's a brief run-down on where we are with everything. Bear in mind we've been dealing with the company for the Miercendise since mid May! If I'm honest I think I'm guilty of expecting other companies to be a little more professional than they actually are: I've dealt with three different people for the branding company over the last few months (two left the company) and it was only in October that they told me they didn't have the mug I wanted. They also got the pint pots wrong (they sent us half pints instead) and I still haven't had a reply about the pouches.

Anyway: enough moaning - I just want you to all to know the difficulties I am facing with these people.

Miercendise Reward
• T-Shirt - sample not received; still trying to get this
• Beanie Hat - sample not received; still trying to get this
• Pint Glass (568ml) - ordered, should be with us next week
• Pint Tankard Glass (568ml) -ordered, should be with us next week
• Jumbo Mug (570ml) - ordered, should be with us next week



It's a big 'un!
• Bottle Opener Keyring - ordered, should be with us next week
• Black Pen - ordered, should be with us next week
• Black Dry-Wipe Marker Pen - ordered, should be with us next week
• Dice Pouch - still trying to source something suitable
• Stuff Pouch - still trying to source something suitable
• Tokens Tin - still trying to source something suitable
• 5m Tape Measure - upgraded from the 3m (so it will cost more at retail); sample received and ordered, should be with us next week
• A0 size Darklands Poster - sample received, but rejected as too dark (my fault really). Awaiting further sample A0 size
• The Lands of Darkness Poster - sample not received (not too worried because these poster guys are very quick)
• A0 size Concept Art Poster - sample not received (not too worried because these guys are very quick)
• Dice Tray - with us now, it's great.

The dice tray!

Miniatures
• Morag of Mann - printed & moulded
• Sáthach - printed & moulded

Templates & Tokens

The templates and tokens have been sent off to the manufacturers; these won't take long as we've lots of experience doing these. I'm very hopeful we'll get everything we need to send before Christmas.

Mat Sets

Still haven't sorted these yet, but am working on it. As it's the same company for the dice trays, there shouldn't be any issues. Those guys were super quick.

We'll keep updating you on progress in this fashion over the next few weeks.

How long have I got to order stuff?

We'll start taking the bits off the webstore in September at some point, so if you haven't already ordered your stuff, do it now...

That's it for now...

IIRC Malus is a fully human Byzantii caster, but there's another one called something like 'Volcanos' who's possesed by a demon.

Golly, another sale!
That's drops Twroch ap Roch to £70, which is a nice discount.

OK, I had something very weird just happen to me..

I was about to order: twroch ap roch, at £99.99 with the 30% discount.
This was correctly totaled in my checkout cart.

I went off to look for other items I might be interested in, and when I refreshed the page, twroch ap roch was suddenly listed at £114.99!

My money back also inexplicably changed from 62p to 71p, an almost identical percentage change.

As I looked, it seemed like everything that I was browsing jumped up about 15%!

I then opened a different browser (Internet Explorer, God help me) and the prices returned to normal!

I literally copied the URL for Twroch, pasted into IE, and voila, the price was correct...!

I placed the order on the other browser, but thought you guys should be aware and look out for this!

Well, you're copy-pasting Pounds from IE, and Euros from FF.
conversion rate looks about right too, so I'm fairly sure it's just the Mierce equivalent of some American inadvertently visiting GW's New Zealand site and just about having a heart attack

Mierce kinda did this to themselves...

And sure, maybe it isn't only their fault, but it primarily is.

I know I'm not interested in sending them any more money until my ridiculously large backlog of minis I already purchased with them is at least...80% fulfilled.

I suspect it will be a while still.

I'd be close to that 80% if someone was doing their metal production but I just keep seeing my metal orders, which have been out in resin for quite some time, getting pushed back in the forum's release section.

I was in on the first 5 or 6 projects. But the pattern was becoming very clear by the time I decided to drop out. I think I got my final stuff through when they were on kickstarter 15+. I'm sure there are valid reasons for this business model, but still, some sort of consistency might have kept me on the hook longer (eg we will have every KS completedwithin the space of the next 5 or so fresh KS projects or something).

Same here!

I went 'metal' wherever and whenever possible as these would be gaming peices for me, so the added durability was a plus.

But as they keep getting delayed, and as their delays apparently hold up other things in my various orders...

I lasted a few more Kickstarters then you, but yes, the pattern they've established now is not good.

Yep, I only have few left now, but they keep getting pushed back (Resin, not metal) So October 2018 is now February 2019, for a KS that ended August 2016...
And then they drop a 30% off sale, so you wonder why you simply didn't wait and grab them for less than KS prices...ANYWAY...
I paid £70 for Encrusted Thuulac in 2016.

If I'd just waited for it to be released, then picked him up a couple of weeks ago, I'd have saved money!
Not only that, I'd have had that money all along...
So...what's the point in backing their KS'ers?

Yes, it helps put their stock into production...but I think they already have far too many items for sale as it is, it's simply too confusing...500+ minis!
