  1. try to ask them on their facebook profile, that's how we get their attention in the first place
  2. unfortunately my phone cannot connect to PC for some reason, but they look similar to the painted ones, only striped of paint but, as I said, problem isnt in paintjob/details per se, but in realistic proportions of the minis (and lack of relative scale in posted pictures, so they seem at least two times bigger than they really are). For comparison, while the heads of my wh40k space marine and cadian shocktrooper figures have about 7 mm height, the head of Aloth have only 4 mm. wh40k figures are also overall much bulkier, but despite that, they keep the same total height of 28mm. Ofc molds for the PoE minis could be better, because robes and armor arent as detailed as they could even considering proportions, but faces are just too small to give them more detailed look. The miniatures are awful and any attempt to defend them is laughable at best. Some people just have money to burn I guess. have you ever seen 1:72 scale miniatures from above-mentioned companies, or at least took those "better" warhammer/d&d figures and compared their proportions with PoE minis before posting? The miniatures are awful and any attempt to defend them is laughable at best. Then prove me wrong and design better head while keeping realistic proportions (they used in-game models as base, mind you), oh, and dont forget to paint them "properly" You're just childish now. Go and find some arguments, then we can speak again. For those who are interested, that's how the aloth figure looks like, when photo is scaled down to the actual size of the figure: yeeeah, that face looks far less ofensive now, isnt it? could they do better? Yes, especially if they didnt re-use game model and made something "exaggerated" from scratch, also aloth pose could be more natural (curently he looks like neo dodging bullets). Is this the worst figure ever? Not really, just like your average plastic military figure. Tbh, I didnt expect games workshop quality.

  4. Mine arrived today, I choose unpainted. I think that provided pics dont give them any justice, because they seem bigger than they really are. They're tiny, so you cant do better face than few black stripes even if you try. Not to mention that anyone who ever painted mini should know, that for 40$ you'll only get some ****ty rushed job, not an pice of art. Even then, I think that people doesnt understand, that those minis have one specific quirk - they have realistic proportions. Usually you get something stylised, with exaggerated limbs and heads, so face detail are clearer. PoE minis are more like realistic military figurines from companies like hat, italieri, revell or bandai, so they doesnt look as good, because details are blending. It's totally fine by me, but I understand that people who usually played with their warhammer or d&d minis feels dissapointed.
  5. mine had arrived to. Tbh i dont understand folks, who complained about miniatures, they're alright for what they are (realistic proportions, so no face details and so on). The only that I wouldnt pick if I knew beforehand how it'll look, are the t-shirts. Material feels cheap and its easy to pill, they are more like dark grey than black, and worst of all, I prefered old obsidian logo. Other than that, CE looks amazing.
  6. I've recived email from dhl today, game should arrive tomorrow, so there's high chance that you'll also recive it soon
  7. pft, Philippines and Brazil... I'm living in Poland, just right next to the Germany (where distribution center is), I even live closer to Berlin than capital of my own country, but somehow I'm still waiting for my signed CE with miniatures, hoodie and rest of the stuff :< I hope everything is ok, because I still havent even got an email with shipping notification
  8. IIRC, they couldn't update the side-menu description of the rewards, because FIG was very rough those times and many features of the site were made ad hoc for obsidians request during campagin. Or it was something about site policy, that reward descriptions cannot be changed, to prevent some scams with last minute changes. That backfired badly in case of Deadfire, where devs stated at least few times that physical version is just the box, but they couldnt clarify description on the side menu, because technical limitiations/site policy. At least, that's how I remember whole issue
  9. about eternity site - will be there some backer store, like for wasteland 2? You know, I've got some extra money to spend.. (numenera also has my sword, axe and wallet)
  10. First Witcher - ~20 million polish zloty, today it's about 6 million $ (in 2007 it was arround 8-9 million $). And it was a full 3d game, with professional 8 min. intro made by Platige Image etc. 4 million $ seems more than enough for 2d izo rpg.
