Unboxing Raging Heroes - Santa Dolores, The Lady of Sorrow

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 Santa Dolores, The Lady of Sorrow a look...

Santa Dolores, The Lady of Sorrow
Santa Dolores - 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.

Santa Dolores - Assembled
This one is certainly one of the more interesting of the range...
The main body is in three parts with part of the cloak attaching to the larger body piece and a separate leg. There's also a small circular headdress piece that goes on top of the covered head. The two hands are very small indeed and the contact points weren't brilliant so needed a bit of trimming to get to fit though this isn't unusual with resin models.

Then there's the nine tiny daggers...
Several of these have cross-guards and others do not and if you look at the render then there are specific locations of each one though it doesn't matter that much if you get them mixed up (I've put at least two in the wrong places I think). There are slight indentations indicating where theses need to go though they aren't deep enough to keep the daggers in place while the glue goes off so expect a few 'fingers glued together' or 'gluing yourself to the part and then pulling it off the model when you let go' moments...

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

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
