I got a few that I've been working on. Slowly working on a free city. My nomad princess that Venerable Dreadnought did the greenstuff conversion for me. Greatswords (just one, dont have all the models on me at the moment), freeguild general, and an anointed that was the sea captain for high elves. Lastly, an assassin that I kitbashed.

I really like the wild rider helm, and when i buy shadow warriors, I'm gunna put the antler mask on them as well. It'll be somewhat of a theme.

Loving the idea of this one and it’s nice to see it themed to fit an army.

Have to ask though, where the hell did you get the base tag from? That really makes it for me and I could do with quite a few of those haha.

Figured I was going so conversion heavy it was the least I could do for my opponents.

On that subject my next project will be a Werewolf emerging from a Realmgate. Obviously a Treelord without the nameplate right?

Those name plates really do add a lot to models.
Just messages the guy to see if he’s able to do custom ones (using multiple icons on 1 tag) as I now want a fancy one for Gordrakks base lol.
Also going to grab one for Throt too while I’m at it.
It’s the little details like these that really add a lot to the models IMO.

They arrived in the mail today. Absolute recasts and multiple issues. I’ll be calling GW after their lunch break ends, letting them know what happened, and alerting them to the store. If I only get my money back, that’s fine. Warning...kidgiftstore is a website that claims to be in Fargo ND. They are not. My garbage recasts came from China. Avoid this place like the plague. Out of 6 Varanguard I could probably salvage 4. Probably. One has a mount torso not even formed; it’s 2/3 there.

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Good luck getting your money back - though if you paid by card or paypal you could certainly have a case at false representation of goods. Be sure to take photos to prove your point and log all details.

I'm not sure if I've ever heard of FW or GW ever sending out replacement products for 3rd party recasts being bought. It might happen once in a blue moon, but I'd be very surprised if that was their general mode of operation (otherwise recasters would just send you the fake and say - hey just contact GW and they'll replace it for free)

I'm baffled by why you'd possibly think that GW would/should give you your $ back. Please explain your logic.

You'd have a better case pursuing mail fraud against kidgiftstore/through your credit card co.

Dude, NOWHERE in there did I say I expect GW to give me my money back. I’d get it from PayPal, if not KGS. I asked GW what route they wanted me to go to handle it. Sorry if that wasn’t clear, but as a veteran in this hobby for closing on 20 years, I wouldn’t expect GW to cough up the cash. I purchased through PayPal, they told me how to handle things, and that’s what I’m going to do. I asked a simple question before if they still request you to send them the forgeries and they help out because that was something they USED to do, as a “thanks for helping us shut down a pirate”. I didn’t know if they still do it (seems they don’t), but they told me how best I should handle it. Since it was their product being pirated, I of course asked them how they’d like it handled. I never even asked them if they still have the policy, just how I should handle it.

Yeah back in the day, GW asked for you to contact them if someone sold you recasts.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Thank you for vindicating my query. And I’m being serious. Because having never bought recasts before but seeing stories on here, I wanted to ask how GW responds these days vs how they used to. I wasn’t expecting to get accused of going after GW for my money back or “cheating the system”.

So, as a follow up...PayPal decided against me just because the seller “sent something”. I’m pursuing matters w/ GW’s legal dept in the matter as well, per their suggestion at CS. Frustrating. PayPal does NOT help against recasters and frauds. I detailed explicitly to PayPal that the product that was sent was fraudulent, recast, and of poor quality. The seller only sent in a tracking number and PayPal ruled in favor of them, no joke.

Perhaps if you could get official comment from GW to give to paypal to prove that the delivered product was a recast?

I kinda did. Got back in touch with PayPal, they actually LOOKED at my notes this time, did a fast double take after I said I have started discussion with GW and will be including the legal team in the matter. Case is reopened and I’ve told the seller all further communication will be with PayPal directly and I won’t communicate with them further.

My next big piece for Karak Cythral. Discovered the new Treemen are way bigger than the Werewolf I intended to use so a search of the backlog for a solution was required ( The pile of shame isn't always a bad thing)

Since it all started in this thread...no use opening a new one. GW has sent a letter from their legal dept to PayPal that the items are recast knockoffs and are requesting a full refund to me. So I’m still waiting for PayPal to chew on that, but GW’s legal dept has stepped in. And the models are going to be destroyed as soon as I have my refund.

That's nice of GW to step in like that, a lot of time companies don't like to get in the middle of things that don't directly concern them like that (they'd leave it to customer and vendor). Hopefully it does swing things in your favour with paypal.

It does directly affect them; it involves them taking a recaster off the table (I’ve already been working w/GW to make sure this guy’s shop is taken care of).

While it isn't an ongoing war with recasters, it is more progress. Committed to doing some units next.

I'll admit I had my doubts but seeing it painted up that looks really good! Your color choices are well picked IMO.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

Talk about frustrating. PayPal agreed to full refund after I send models back. GW asked me to destroy them. Had to call PayPal back AGAIN, wherein they finally located GW’s letter that was sent, the case has been reopened, and PayPal has indeed told me to destroy them as well while they work on closing the recaster’s account, now that they’ve read GW’s letter of proof of forgery. Yeesh. At least they said it’s 100% in my favor now that they have proof from the creator that I’ve received a counterfeit item.

This is ironically why I include the FW bags and screenshots showing the purchase when I sell any FW models.
I’ll rarely if at all buy FW stuff off eBay as I’ve been burned too many times.


On the actual topic, I’ve been challenged to a 2 month painting challenge.
2k points in 2 months.
May sound easy enough but I’m an insanely slow painter.

Gone with Nighthaunt as I have most of the 2k already, so a few purchases will finish it.
Going with a speed painting idea but only for the cloth work, so hopefully adding in details like rust, glows etc will keep it around TT standard.
