A New Poll, Results of an Old Poll, and New Releases!

A New Poll, Results of an Old Poll, and New Releases!

We've got a number of updates for you, a new poll, and the results of our last poll! 

We launched Atlantic Digital a few months ago on MyMiniFactory with a Tribe (MMF’s version of Patreon - ironically only about 3% of Patreons are miniatures related and almost all of them do their file distribution through MMF. We chose MMF because it was 100% miniatures focused). We now have grown to over 700 Tribe members who pay $10-12/month and receive a whopping number of files each month with something for each of our 11 ranges.

Other Patreons and Tribes have attracted thousands of members - One Page Rules just hit over 11,000! We know we are new to this game but we are impatient because the more members we sign up the more new stuff we can make! We want to know what we can do to get those of you who haven’t yet signed up to join the Tribe!

 

We also have the results from our poll to pick the theme for March - the Women have taken the top slot! Look for an all X chromosome month of March from us! 

And finally we've released some new sets on both MyMiniFactory (as digital files) and as printed resin models ready to ship at our shop on Only-Games! 

 

 

We're working on new hard plastic and more digital/printed releases now. Landsknecht Ogres and Harvesters are shipping out to customers in the US this week and en route to the UK and Australian warehouses.

I noted down “other” on the form since I had to, but I’m actually already a Tribes member.

I am strongly considering the subscription. Currently, however, my subscriptions to anything are severely limited. I am excited to try out WGA prints, as I’ve been very happy with your plastic kits.

It will cost about $800A to get and set up a resin printer. That’s a lot of figures before I get any models .As a Wargamer I want figures I will print a lot of for armies rather than skirmish games. While many of your file sets are interesting they are not much use for Wargames armies,and some of them look a bit odd,the feet of the Egyptian civilians for example. The tribes fee of $12 becomes around $20A so every three months is a box of figures. There is also the worry that there could be problems trying to print the models. There are plenty of u tube videos of people having problems with purchased files and not having done resin printing( only filament) I worry about the cost ,mess and hassle. If you had files for say Egyptian and Hittite warriors and chariots that would provide a viable army I may be tempted to splash the cash, but for now I am still sitting on the fence.

I am a Tribe member, and very happy with the value, but I will ay that the amount of work I have to put into printing a WGA set is much higher than other Tribes I’ve joined. There are more errors and WAY more islands than what I’m seeing from similar scale tribes, meaning get a lot more errors and end up doing alot more troubleshooting. It seems pretty obvious that uoir sculptors are not printing files before uploading them.

Look at the Rebel Yell supports in a slicer, there are supports that connect to litterally nothing, dozens of islands and the figures are completely vertical (showing print lines more). I got a printer specifically for WGA tribes, and I’m already learning how to correct these simple errors. I could report them, and some times I do, but I shouldn’t have to be a beta tester. If anyone had simply pri tes them they would have seen these errors.

That said, your sculpts are fantastic, and every month so far there us at least two sets that I would have been happy to pay the entry price on, but ya’ll need some experience 3d printing

“I can see why people like Tribes but it’s not for me. I have no need for the most of the designs so I’d rather just buy the individual SLTs that I want.
Plus I’ll always prefer hard plastic to printed.”

And that’s exactly my point of view.

Multi-part kits are what hooked me into buying into the Tribes! The kitbash potential amongst the ranges when you guys do make large multi-parts kits is worth it for me. Also having additions to fill in existing armies like the Les Grognard Calvary help make said model ranges more complete for 40k/OPR rosters

Adam Stoeckle - January 25, 2023

Tribes is a great deal… if you like everything. I signed up at the beginning but I’m finding most of the releases are falling into the “never going to print” or “cool to have but will likely never use” category. I’m not sure having a theme each month is helping either.

Jezz - January 25, 2023

I just don’t have the space or finances to set up a printer, I support the idea and the distribution but it’s not for me.

Jean-Sébastien Marcoux - January 25, 2023

Tribe is a great deal… but only if you interested in more than a few ranges. If not he deal become way less interesting. Sometimes you can find a few parts on other ranges for kit bashing, which is a great way to get more from the tribe, but some of the more recent models are only in one piece (Jewish Revolt, Committee of Public Safety, Neanderthals…) which severely reduce their usefulness and the overall value.

I have to say I’m kind of disappointed with some of the release too. You have The Damned at 15$ with so much different parts and conversion possibilities and then you release the Rebel Yell at 16$ with much less bits and options.

Just A Dude - January 25, 2023

Tribe is fine, I just don’t buy subscriptions to anything, personal choice that’s all.
