Mierce Miniatures – Proteanc is in tha house. And he’s not cooperative.

Posted by Cogni den 18. januar 2015

Oh yeah, he’s here!
Oh fuck. he’s not like I expected him to be.

I usually write in Norwegian, but I will write this post in English. I want people to find and understand this post when thinking of buying from Mierce Miniatures.
Proteanc is one of MM’s more expensive models, with it’s large size and godly theme. Buying it directly from MM has cost me £65 including shipping, after a slight reduction from Kickstarter. That’s about ~650 NOK, ~$106 or ~75€.
What I received… was not worth it. Here’s why:

38860a81-cb87-4f9d-bf90-f91fdfd712a3 94dec41d-f94f-4149-8dc4-ee81b0929032 I paid 65£ for this? For that price I expect to be treated like a valuable customer, but they don’t even care to remove any flash at all!
This is without doubt the most flash-infested miniature I ever bought!
At first this didn’t bother me, as it’s no big deal if everything else is good.
a1c1149e-5393-422c-bf76-6d5c0c6772ce 4b990fc1-a54b-40dc-997e-22992ab79648 Once I started putting pieces together, I was having trouble fitting several or most of them. They do not fit well!
How am I supposed to fit that arm here?? The joint hole is blocked and the edges seem very much to be warped!
Blocked holes like this occured several times on this 1 miniature.
Pretty much all the pieces has mold injections sticking out just where they are supposed to fit together, and it’s not that easy to see the difference between mold injections and joints.
So you rotate the pieces around, trying to make them fit as good as you can, but they rarely fit well in any rotation.
This arm fits like it was never ment to be there.
 0bf9f158-228c-4332-9593-3307873da4ee The pieces have plenty of eye-catching mold injections like this. Was that really the best place to put the mold injection?? Seriously?
  5ca2078c-1ae9-4b3e-b702-541ee587c084 7f61c1b1-d197-492e-adee-517010cbc03c  2c8c3726-ea30-4f7b-b529-4ca2d18d17eb Get the gap filler, cause you’re gonna need it for every single piece you put together. Like I mentioned, the pieces rarely fit well together.
Remember this figure is huge, so the gaps are wider than they look.
 4e6263fa-ca2d-4694-b9c9-0a75331faab4 A Godly being unable to stand on it’s own feet.
A combination of warped pieces and brittle material, now that’s a winner… which genius came up with that?

Yeah, did I mention the resin is brittle and fragile? One of my cats dropped the bottom half of the figure on the floor. Half a leg broke off, not just a toe. Now I’m scared to death to break off anything by mistake (or for my cats to repeat damage).
And in case you wondered, you do not receive any optional parts or any kind of extras.

Mierce Miniatures is like GameZone Miniatures: Their models are great and very appealy, but their casting quality is really among the worst!
I have bought miniatures from a lot of different producers, and a casting quality this low, with this much flash, is rare.
If the prices were moderate I could live with the quality, but I wont ever buy any full-price MM model again. It’s not worth it.

It makes me wonder if MM is intentionally trying to make money on spewing out tons of «fast and poorly» done castings for a high price.
Everyone wants their models because the sculptings are really great, but it’s easy to forget that the copied product might not be the same quality.
It’s like buying a burger from McDonalds – They’re designed to look appealing, then produced without care for quality.

Edit:
I came to think of how expensive many of GW’s models/units are. So for the sake of comparing value, let’s see what you get from MM vs GW:

Mierce Miniatures Games Workshop Resin
Sharp details Somewhat blunt details
True scale Heroic scale
Lots of flash No flash
Some warped parts No warped parts
Pieces don’t fit well Pieces fit very good
No options, sceneries or extras Some options, some scenery
Several large gaps, much need for filler Tight gaps, glue can cover it
Brittle material, may break with clipping. I would never bring these to a game, in fear of damage. Durable material, bends rather than breaking. Well suited for gaming.

Tom for Green Stuff :\

Posted by Cogni den 12. september 2013

Mens jeg ryddet og sorterte bitz så tenkte jeg at jeg kanskje har nok bitz til å lage en drage. Som sagt så gjort.
Men nå er jeg tom for Green Stuff – akkurat når jeg trenger det. Vingene får vente til senere.

Long time no update

Posted by Cogni den 5. desember 2012

Det har vært mye annet å gjøre de siste månedene, så lite tid til maling.

Dioramaet Yin Yang
ble fullført i grevens tid til årets malekonkurranse (24.nov), og vant 1.plass i sin kategori.
Alle figurer som vant en førsteplass ble tilbudt utstilling i monter på Outland Kirkegata, og jeg sa ja til det.
Siden dioramaet ble ferdig kun ~5 timer før malekonkurransen og jeg bokstavelig talt jobbet med det hele natta, så rakk jeg ikke ta bilder. Og siden dioramaet ble overlevert, og fortsatt ikke er stilt ut etter planen, så har jeg fortsatt ikke hatt mulighet til å ta bilder heller.

Men litt annen maling har jeg da fått tid til, og endelig har jeg kommet til å ta noen bilder.

Gamezone – High Elf – Winged Cavalry Standardbearer:
winged cavalry 2012.12.04Denne modellen siklet jeg på lenge, før jeg tilslutt fikk kjøpt den på tilbud hos Maelstrom Games. Akkurat hva jeg betalte tar jeg meg ikke tid til å finne ut nå, men tror det var 30% eller 40% rabatt.
Jeg føler meg ganske fornøyd med den, selv om den ikke er helt ferdig ennå.
Føler at jeg fikk bra til å male modellen i de fargene som jeg ser for meg at den kler best, og at jeg har fått frem hvorfor jeg liker den modellen så godt.
Andrea Miniatures – Varathar (54mm)
varathar 2012.12.04 2Denne kjøpte jeg billig via Pynting.no. Det er flere fine miniatyrer der fra Andrea Miniatures, som jeg har lyst på.
Vil prøve å male modellen til å virke litt skummel, med dark elf theme seff.
Sliter litt med å finne ut hvilke farger som egentlig ser best ut på huden til raptoren, men synes armoren har gått greit så langt.
Avatars of War – Beastman Hero
beastman hero 2012.12.04Denne kjøpte jeg sammen med Winged Cavalry figuren, samme tilbud hos Maelstrom Games.
Den ble egentlig ganske kjedelig å male etterhvert, fordi jeg ikke liker det helhetlige fargetemaet noe særlig… på tross av at jeg føler det er riktig fargetema for modellen…
Er fornøyd med metalleffekten på øksa, men fint lite annet.
Enigma Miniatures – Lox Jarg
Lox Jarg 2012.12.04 BakLox Jarg 2012.12.04 ForanEr lenge siden jeg begynte å male på denne. Så tenkte jeg at jeg sku prøve å male den til årets malekonkurranse.
Det endte med at jeg ga det opp, for jeg ble ikke noe særlig fornøyd. Too bad, for modellen er jo pen.
High Elf Mounted Lord Converted 2012.12.04 2En conversion jeg nylig begynte på. Hadde lyst å sette vinger på en hest, for å få til en mer spennende pegasus. Har tenkt å gjøre den til noe som vil passe en vampyr- eller chaos champion. Alle bitz fra Games Workshop.
