Yup, their heads are sure greater than their torsos. Was the sculptor blind or that unfamiliar with human anatomy? It's specially baffling seeing Taipan mini linked below has much more sensible proportions (at least in human form, snake one looks wonky too) and is far better looking design thanks to that.

And it's not just anatomy, the magazines in the pistols (?) the SF version has is one of the most comically wrong gun parts I have ever seen in a model, right up there with Forge World upside-down bolters. Not just shape, they look like 'heroic' GW scale part attached to more sensibly scaled handgun. I especially like how ejection port looks quater size of actual bullet and is placed way too far to the rear...



Yeah, Raging heroes stuff is not any worse proportioned than GW stuff...which is particularly painful. Especially Guardsman


I mean..that las-gun is effectively 6 feet long and the magazine is the size of his comically giant head. Space Marines are now only slightly better than they used to be.

If you play GW games or use GW Miniatures then I cant imagine why you would ever complain about any company having weird proportions or ridiculous sized guns.


Definately have to agree here. GW's weapons and hands are rediculously proportioned. Also aside from Juan Diaz i don't think anyone at GW knows what an actual woman looks like. Their female sculpts are all pretty manly and rediculous bar a few.

Old Metal Escher and new Escher aren't bad... They at least register as female...

I was surprised to see their new message via KS. I thought they wanted all traffic and conversation directed to their website.

In the end I was pretty satisfied with what I got from TGG2. Once things wanted to go together they pretty much stayed that way.

The post-KS releases have been nice and much more cooperative to build. Even KS models I've gotten at retail had less issues than the actual KS versions (yeah, I double dipped on some of them).

No, I've been following their kickstarters from the first one and I keep receiving their advertisements for their website on a regular basis. They never stopped.

Their site is always full of their annoying pop up messages telling mister X has bought product Y that you don't care about. But yeah, if you don't mind all of this, the new miniatures are indeed nice.

"Heroic Scale" was completely awful, but it has been dying off for years now. It's really not fair to bring up a comparison that's probably nearly twenty years old when what they make now is extremely different. Meanwhile, Games Workshop has produced so few female miniatures. Are you referring to the Juan Diaz Daemonettes? Aside from Arwen, they're the only female miniatures I can find that he's made. And they really, really aren't what "actual women" look like. New Celestine, Severina Raine, female Genestealer Cultists, and the female Sequitors are much, much more realistic than anything by Juan Diaz or Raging Heroes.

Does anyone here has access to the latest "update" on their terrain kickstarter project?
Since I got kicked out of the project for being "too negative" I still watch that disaster from time to time and enjoy the show.
Unfortunately they seem to have sent a direct e-mail to backers and not use the KS update system.

So... does anybody want to help a friend

I should hope not - they're demons, after all. And ironically those Juan Diaz ones look far too feminine. Over the years there's been a few female characters for various factions, and they all looked sufficiently feminine to me, whether that be a dark elf sorceress, the high elf everqueen, a dwarf queen, sisters of battle ... Hairtyles have a lot to do with it, but then that's true in real life too.

I think that requires some serious capital to do. They may not have the income flow to support that...maybe another kickstarter?

I thought there was talks of a third campaign, but it kinda sounded like it was going to be used to fund the cathedral terrain that seems stuck in development hell currently.

They haven't really talked about what they're planning on kickstarting outside of their game though, have they?

Raging Heroes makes good looking models, just never ever invest in their kickstarters because they all seem to be riddled with problems and instead just wait for the models to hit the store itself.

I was... pretty happy with my TGG2 pledge. Lots of freebies and once I figured out how to get the figures cleaned up they were no problem at all.

Plus the newer store models don't have many of those same problems.

The strong point of these not-GW snake ladies is certainly their dynamism. Raging Heroes sure knows how to play with their snake bodies...I'm betting there is no bone inside of those.

Otherwise, GW's plastic kit is already doing the job, IMHO. Raging Heroes kits aren't interesting unless taken in their so called "bundles".Even so it's sometimes arguable.

Just that IIRC. But it'll be their most ambitious one to date, as the list of features they want to incorporate into their rules is quite staggering.

I just hope it also contains a decent fluff section.
