looks promising. I would however like to see some actual prototypes and not just renders.

Same here. Specialy after the Sedition Wars & Dark, Darker, Darkest disappointements  :(

How I wish that there were actual sculpters involved in a project sometimes. Some updates of yet more renders. How very unexciting.

I wasn't of the opinion that a 3D printer was capable of producing miniatures of that detail. I mean of those that I've seen the details have been really lacking, with little definition of things like faces, etc, along with them having a rough texture due to miniatures being too small for conventional printers. So unless this company has printers in advance of what the others trying to do this have, I think that those digital sculpts shown are in excess of what the end product will be. Resin would be a much more suitable material to create those designs out of, and its been shown that it can be done cheaply too, as is the case with Reaper's Bones kickstarter. So, whilst promising, the market's already saturated with zombies (ooh zombie nun!), without a genuine finished product I don't see myself being too excited over this. =/

You're happy all day aren't you?  ::)

Completely disagree,  I'd suggest you take a wider view of digital end products of other companies bud, prodos and the avp project for example.

I would like resin too but anyway your call and naturally it's down to all to make their own  informed choices.

I don't think Prodos has any AvP 'end products' yet.   And they may be digitally designed, but they are going to be eventually made in resin.

I'm referring to the current quality of digital printing query.

Oh I'm open to be disagreed with, and the market changes rapidly, to my knowledge though, limited as it is, I haven't seen any decent 3D printed miniatures that match the quality of those presented in the digital sculpts. So post some pictures of models that meet that standard and I won't feel so questionable about this particular kickstarter. ^^

Tone is ever so difficult to set anyhow. Read everything I write in a giddy meandering voice. Fibble.
