Just venting...

The shipping cost is insane :-(

21Eu for a 45Eu mini ...

Seems to be a high base shipping cost, but which doesn't scale up very much.

I've got 9 minis at €91... shipping is €17.79

Still much more than I expected but not 50% of the model cost like yours.

Yeah, if I had of known it was 21€ I would have not backed for the frog.

By the time the Frog arrives I imagine I will be happy again.

My model came through yesterday, great casting, lovely sculpting. He's a big unit but should rank up ok. Looking forward to getting him painted.

My mini arrived last week.

Casting is overall good with few bubbles and misalignment were it does not really matter.

Sculpting is well defined but too small.

I wish I had resisted the Frog and ordered something else from a different company.

My box shipped recently, so hopefully it'll be waiting for me when I get home.

I ordered... a lot.

I will put it all up on Youtube for those that are curious. Gotta do some in depth and intense lizard reviews.

I sort of got my huge box...they shipped all of the add-ons but none of the 4 core boxes of troops...

Be sure to check your order when it arrives!

Also, the sculpts are AMAZING! Highlord, you will be greatly pleased with your order.

These are now up for preorder on their web site.

Prices are slightly higher than he KS, but the sculpts are excellent.

Looking at these sculpts I realized that skinks and ripperdactyls were the only units where I felt GW has better design and execution. The whole rest of the line is far better from Lost Kingdom. Kind of sad that a small Indy company can put out such better designs than the big market leader...

For now~ I'm hoping for a good showing from the lizard man bloodbowl team (whenever it comes....) to give us a taste of.where GW sees the lizard man design going in the future.

Well, the rumors of a large Seraphon update is coming later this year (more maybe a different faction?). At any rate, my buddy and I needed more.

Actually thinking of using those Helicoprion-like flyers for my Idoneth.

Mine should be arriving today. We'll see what I'm missing before I go make another order.
Probably going to grab a Carnosaur at least.

Their latest update said something about 3D printing more items. What did you order, Highlord?

Gw's Frogmages are better too.

The only designs that I think are truly poor from GW are the lizardmen cold ones.

Nah, the basic saurus warriors are really showing their age as well. All the fluff mentions them towering over humans, being big and imposing... they're all kinda scrunched up to fit the rank and file system.

I still think Last Sword's basic saurus was better than Lost Kingdom's, but Lost Kingdom's character models are light years beyond everybody elses.

I ordered all the hero models and a few units of big stuff. I'm most curious how large their cavalry are compared to a cold one. The cavalry command unit's leader seems large enough to use as a makeshift carnosaur even!

The basic Saurus are pretty bad, and when you put them on top of Flintstone Dinos like the cold ones... You have a really potent mix of poor design.

I think they might be one of the worst sculpts still out there.

I just realized that I was confusing Lost Kingdom and Last Sword.

So I started in on one of the cold ones...



Along with one of their Temple Guard models-


You can see they're quite a lot bigger and there's a lot more detail.

People in the comments section weren't kidding about being careful cleaning these models. There's all sorts of knobs, spikes, frills, and bones sticking out that will require a lot of patience to prepare. I'm still not done with just these two!

So, last month or so I remembered those and they had a preorder page up and running. And I stumbled over YouTube vids of a certain Highlord highlording it up with massive lizzies, so I was interested. Skip to now and my upcoming birthday aaand I can only find their KS and FB page, not the Webstore. The KS page gives me a "preorder something something" update as a preview before disappearing, so I guess it's backer only? Did the dinos I wanted to treat myself with go extinct?

Believe it or not I still got plenty more to show off too. Almost finished cleaning up the saurus knights- they were a major undertaking!

I'm still mad the preorder on the chameleons closed so quick. They were one of the units I didn't get the first time and I really want them.
