Ideas for New Heresy Models / Re: Kickstarter?
« on: February 02, 2013, 06:47:45 PM »
You could have tiers of vouchers for redemption against existing Heresy models, there are fair few people who'd like to support you without having interest in whichever you finally pick.

Maybe the world ending was just the world of Frothers?

Meant to enter that and completely slipped my mind, not that my painting/converting skills would have got me anywhere anyway.

Reminds me more of Spider from Transmetropolitan. Though obviously the glasses are wrong for that.

Announcements and News / Re: KIDS PAINTING COMPETITION: BEFORE CHAOS

Apologies for the lack of awesome camera skills, my camera is old and generally restricted to point and shoot with all settings on AUTO for pictures of or by the kids.

This is by my daughter (she is 5)

Before
I undercoated it for her, after discussing with her what colours she wanted to use and she was insistent that since these two were still on the same tab they were only one model.

I'm not entirely sure if these are WIP or finished, I need to at least talk to her about basing if nothing else.

The dress on the little girl is actually pink, but it washed out in the photo (it is a very pale pink - "Carnal Pink" from P3). I  might be able to convince her to go back and touch it up a little/base it next week as it's a bit messy at the moment (though 5 year olds don't have stable hands at the best of times, so I think it qualifies as a WIP (depending on her moods, it might end up as the finished version though)

Victorian female dilettante, with a pistol if it really needs a weapon, though prefer unarmed.
An orc (or 1/2 orc) knight/paladin done without too much humour, preferably mounted and foot.
Adventuring scholar, somewhat like the Seneschal picture in the Rogue Trader (40kRPG) rulebook, but without the sci-fi bits.

I do intend to place an order once the Spyglass stuff is up. It won't be a big order, but I should be able to spare 20-30.

Information / Re: What is a typical HF customer.
« on: December 19, 2008, 10:43:41 AM »

1:  painter/gamer/collector/sculptor ?
Gamer, though a lot more rarely than I'd like, I also have a few figures that I know I'll never use, but like to have.
I do try to paint stuff, but its a necessary evil as far as I'm concerned.

2:   under 21/21 - 45, 45+
26, but with a 2 year old and another baby on the way sometimes feel much older.

3:  male/female
Male

4:   Looking for cute chicks/ conversion bits/ soldiers / something nobody else makes
A bit of all sorts really and change in fits and starts. Currently most interested in modern/near-future/sci-fi. As I feel a bit burned out on fantasy, and I've got a recent foray into Grymn.
I have had a few things for conversion bits, but I've not had time to do anything with 'em.

5:   UK/ Eu/ Non-Eu
UK, Yorkshire

6:   Generally buy from a retailer / prefer manufacturer
Since I only know of a couple of online shops that sell Hasslefree I've always bought direct.

7: how long bought HF?..... less than 1 yr, 2yrs, 3 yrs, 4 yrs+
Hmmmmmm, Can't remember, at least 3 years. Probably 4+

8:   Found through recommendation / search engine
Can't remember, probably Search Engine as I can't think of anyone that would have recommended you (lack of knowledge rather than dislike)
Although as the fog clears in my mind a bit, I think I saw your figures on Gamers-Quest webshop (or something similar) and looked up the manufacturer.

9:  Anything we could do better/ anything you think we are doing drastically wrong/ what you think we do so well that makes us better than anyone else?
I appreciate your attitude to customer service and that you're willing to to step into your forums personally as both a social and informational area.

10: Any other comments?
Keep up the good work.

Libertee's Miscellaneous Musings II / Re: things that really p** you off

I can never be bothered with fancy e-bay routines, I just bid the amount I'm willing to pay - and if I get outbid then never mind.
