I've just had a shipping notification for my KS, so it appears they are slowly getting there.

I just received my package. I only ordered the KS exclusives.
The human is fine, but the Wight King is 3D printed with a FDM printer and then cast in resin. WTF? I could have done this myself with such a gakky quality.

I'm still awaiting hearing anything in the UK.
What backer number are you?

Their last update said they were dealing with backer 700ish. I figure I'll be waiting a while longer at just over 1400.

Looks like the cloak is the worst area, a wash will pick that texture up. I wonder if an extra heavy primer coat on that part will help.

I've been painting some printed prototype stuff for Wargames Atlantic and surprisingly to me the obviously printed areas don't look bad at all when painted up.

Have not yet looked too closely at the resin pieces, but am really liking the plastic northmen. Very basic, but done well, so easy to paint. Which is what I prefer. Wish there were more head options though.

Nice work. I agree they have just the right amount of detail.

I want to see how compatible they might be with some of the Conquest Men At Arms.

Probably not at all, but one can always hope. Nothing like a bunch of mutant hybrid amalgamations to keep the battlefield interesting!

Conquest is a totally different, much larger scale, so they will not be compatible with them.

Ouf that is really terrible. Why oh why would they even print in on FDM printer?

I am also liking the plastics with one exception being the right leg sprue and the left leg sprue for the spearmen.

The necks do not look the best either, but this is acceptable in my opinion.

I noticed the layers with the resin casts too, but I have not tried building them yet.

resin printers can have lines like that too if you don't place the part correctly on the build plate or if you don't cure the resin enough between layers. But this looks like just a normal cheap resin printer as you may not see them at the time of printing, and primer will cover them up, but the sub 2k printers aren't good for making parts for molds as there's always this imperfection in them that requires finishing work. I'm assuming this is what happened more then actual true print lines from a miss print.

It's a real shame they didn't use a professional resin prototyping company to do it for them - companies like Zealot Miniatures, etc.

I'm number 1002, so splitting the difference. It may be a little while yet before they get to yours :-(

Thanks for the info.

Progress is progress I suppose.

The pic of the resins with the print lines seems broken for me - can anyone re-post or place another pic? I would like to see what i can expect to get.

What the heck did they do? Just go right from the printer into making a master cast of it, with no bother to clean/smooth the lines?

Its possible. They were running late and looks like they rushed to be able to say they started shipping on time.

I really love the plastics, but the resins were not great. The Not-Mormont guy is the only one i kept. I put the Rob Stark head on my second copy. There are pics of both in this thread a page back. He was not as bad as the others.

Are the layers thick enough to show through primer and a few layers of paint? If so, I'd be willing to discuss a trade for an unwanted Digital Necromancer.

My issue has been resolved, Fireforge refunded the money for the undead guy. So if you're unsatisfied too, write them an email with pics. Let them know that this quality is not okay.
