Two years, three months late I finally received my models from Creature Caster. This Kickstarter has been a clusterfuck right from the beginning - or more correctly, since CC received the pledged funds. I will be making a post on the KS in the next few days but this post will provide some pictures of the models I received.
It is fair to say that early pictures of the finished models showed a distinct divergence from the promised "jewellery grade quality". Detail was very soft in a lot of cases while there was evidence of mold shifts and overall casting inexperience. So it was with some trepidation that I received my finished models. I pledged for three daemons - the Vulture Daemon, the Maggot Daemon and the Plague Angel while local gamer Peter Williamson purchased the Treewoman.
1. Plague Angel
3. Vulture Daemon
So as you can see some of the detail is "soft" and the surface looks very greasy. I'm hoping a good wash in detergent will remove any release agent on the models allowing paint to adhere properly.
The quality is nowhere near the finish quality I expected when I pledged and the casting is significantly lower than that of Ultraforge, the creator's previous company. Without paint they look like above average Reaper models.
I am looking forward to painting them as I think conceptually they are interesting and a different take on GW's IP.
Check back later in the week when I'll give my opinion on Creature Caster and in particular the creator of this Kickstarter Jeremy Glen. Hint: It ain't going to be pretty.
