    I am extremely excited to announce that the new Remnant of Hoomanity limited edition miniature that is part of the Low Life RPG kickstarter will be sculpted by the legendary Sandra Garrity! Sandy is also our minis guest of honor at Con on the Cob this year (as she is every year). Woo hoo!

    She’s definitely good, I’ve got some 15mm minis that she sculpted that could pass for 28mm minis (lone gunman wolfen).

    Fantastic! Now I just need to learn how to paint minis… After a few horrible tries BITD I decided to just use pre-painted plastic minis forever. FOREVER.

    I’ve read some tutorials and watched some videos online, so I think I’m ready to give it another try.

    I just received the Remnant of Hoomanity green in the mail and it is BEAUTIFUL (in a hideously horrific way). Sandra really captured the creature and added a few creative touches of her own. Andy is pleased.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday. I hadn’t realized it was going to be resin. Not that there’s anything wrong with that… whatever it’s made of, it’s a great looking mini and I look forward to defacing it sometime soon.

    Is the resin thing going to be a thing for the rest of the minis, or are they still going to be metal? (I know the bigger pieces were always intended to be resin, I’m just curious about the smaller ones. Part of my justification for my miniature madness is that, Come the Apocalypse, I can just load them all into socks and go around thwacking people upside the head if they bother me.)

    If this was all discussed someplace already – minus the Apocalypse thing – I apologize…

    Most of them will probably be resin. After careful research and after asking a ton of people their opinion it seems resin holds detail better than metal and it also weighs a lot less, which should save me several thousand dollars when it comes time to ship the international ones.

    I like the resin better. I prefer working with resin normally, I always have issues with getting the glue to hold on metal minis.

    If you go resin you need to go HIGH quality resin. Many, many minis have been ruined due to a wandering air bubble or too much flak (which then causes detail to disappear when removed). I prefer metal – heavier minis seem higher quality – but I could be crazy on this one.

    having held the RoH mini in my own greasy, grubby mitts, I can say the resin is very high quality, and the cast itself flawless. It is by no means the terrible GW Finecast resin, or the overpriced version that Forgeworld uses. It is not as hard as the stuff Battlefront uses for their FoW minis, but it is pretty rigid. The detail is excellent, and after a precursory examination, I saw no glaring flaws. I will do a more thorough inspection when I get a chance. Also, and this is very important with resin, I did not see a lot of mold release still stuck to the mini, which makes me happy. Nothing I hate more than washing a mini five times just to get all the gunk off it so primer will stick to it.

    Ya, the mini is really high quality. Now, I just have to find someone to paint mine…lol
