Unboxing Raging Heroes - Arkiish, The Black Reaper

Following on from their first successful 'Toughest Girls of the Galaxy' Kickstarter Raging Heroes launched a second one called TGG2: Light and Darkness in order to create three new female armies: Dark Elves, Lust Elves, and Sisters of Mercy, in both Fantasy and Sci-Fi versions.

Over the next few weeks I'll be doing some unboxing and review features on some of the models that I acquired. Also as I acquired these models via the Kickstarter rather than through retail they came in bags rather than in a box.

Now we'll give Arkiish, The Black Reaper a look...

Arkiish, The Black Reaper
Arkiish - Unassembled
Here's pictures of both sides of the unassembled model parts.

A Brief Note About Resin Models.
Also it's worth noting that many resin models have a slightly greasy feel caused by the substance they use to stop them sticking to the moulds during production and this can cause issues with glue not taking effect and paint not sticking to the model properly and in my experience Raging Heroes miniatures seem to have a lot of this release agent. Carefully washing the parts in soapy water will remove this should your model be unduly affected. Parts that are bent (or that aren't and you want to be) can be corrected by heating up slightly in warm water and then bending into the required configuration.

Arkiish - Assembled
As with the majority of the models in this range the main body is the majority of the bulk with a few extra pieces added to it. In this case the right arm holding the severed heads a separate piece on the trophy rack and her weapon and left hand. The weapon hand is quite small but as it leans against the cloak there's plenty of surface are to attach it too.

Arkiish - Extras
Here's a look at some artwork and renders from the Kickstarter process that may interest you all. 

Other unboxing and reviews of some raging Heroes 'Toughest Girls of the Galaxy' models as well as some features on other companies products can be found at this link here.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
