Do these come with 20mm or 25mm bases?

Can someone link me to a picture of the limited edition model? Thanks!

I believe that they are on 25mm bases.

Assuming you mean this model;

Doesn't appear to be available any more, as you can now only buy the unit of 30 on the AoW website.

You know...I don't mind playing with models that have naked breasts but I would not put THAT model on the table. :oops: It is wrong on so many levels.

Have to agree, I will wait until I have the actual model in hand though to make a final call on her.
Might find it's way on to ebay fairly promptly.

I have. But I don't think it had a witch holding a dildo up to her mouth. :roll:

Yeah, not a fan of that model so no loss that it isn't available anymore.

That sucks about the bases. Oh well, still cheaper to buy some bases than the GW version.

Thank you!

All of the models come with 25 mm -- Makes me question whether they will work on 20 mm.

The last email I got from them stated they would be delivered in April to the UK, not sure about other countries.
Didn't get a specific date however.

Molds are finally ready!



Testing shots will start imminently, and the molds will be ready to start production on the 10th June.



We’ll post updates on how testing & production progresses.

Looks like July receipt then really. Typical if they work anything like my companies production qualification protocols then they need at least a fortnight minimum to complete this.

They have recently sent an email saying that the production testing etc is occurring. I would not expect them until July at the earliest now.

We finally have confirmation from the toolmaker that the test injections are done, and we should be able to approve them during today and start production straight ahead.



I'll update again as soon as it happens!

We are already producing the Vestals of Nemesis!



We have to produce 7000 sets, so we estimate that the initial production run, preparation and packaging will last for the whole month of July.

Orders will be shipped during the second half of July and first half of August.

I wonder what the profit margin is.

I knew AoW had a reputation for non-delivery so I didn't take up the offer, very glad I am too.

AoW have reputation for slow delivery.

But their minis are also excellent (and I own a bunch so it's not just hearsay)

So simply when I pre-ordered my Vestals with the bonus unique character that was only offered for pre-orders I knew I might have to wait a bit extra.

Then again I've been waiting 5 years for this guy:

And might have to wait one more year still but you just need to be aware what you're getting into (Yes, that dragon is 12" tall from the base to the tip of the wing)
