Review - Mishima Starter Box miniature set for Warzone Resurrection from Prodos Games

Warzone Resurrection miniatures from Prodos

According to the makers, you don't have to wash the models to clean the release agent. However, I tend to wash everything before painting, just to make sure it's clean.

As they are resin, polystyrene cement won't work on them - use superglue. I recommend liquid cyanoacrylate, as it sets very fast.

Some miniatures look to me as they are hydrophobic, and that's bad news for me as I tend to paint directly on plastic models, without primer. It seems it affects certain models, but not others. Anyway, to make your life easier, I recommend using a primer on every Warzone miniature, just to be on the safe side.

Warzone Resurrection Starter Boxes from Prodos

The outer box is thin sleeve, and it's hard to get the inner box out of it. If you get the inner box out, you probably won't put it on again. It seems to fit fine, but somehow doesn't work for me. The inner box is a thick cardboard box, great to protect the contents.

The whole box seems way too large for me, it's about 20x24cm. I could fit the contents of every starter set into the box of the Mule carrier (11,7x15,8cm), and that is about one third of the size of the starter boxes. Most of the problems came from the long sprues, but if they were packing the starters into the small boxes, they would just cut the ends of the sprues so they would fit in. The vehicle box has the same thin cover box, but as it's smaller, it's easier to remove it, so it's more reusable.

There are three versions of the starter boxes:

  • v1 (2014.05-): Created for the Kickstarter. Cover art is painted, not related to content. Same cover sleeve as v2, but in the lower left corner it's indicated it has 75-76 cards inside. Beyond the miniatures, it contains 75-76 cards instead of the 12-13 cards in v2. It has the 4-5 Stat cards, 8 Resource cards, but also 41 Tactical cards, 10 Gear cards and 12 Strategy cards. These cards are 94x68 mm, that were changed later for a size that's easier to sleeve, in sold in MegaDecks. The bases are slotted.
  • v2 (-2015.06-): Same cover sleeve as v1, but in the lower left corner it's indicated it has 12-13 cards inside. Beyond the miniatures it contains only 12-13 cards, the Stat Cards and the Resource cards, the rest of the cards you need come in the MegaDecks. Most of the bases have covered slots.
  • v3 (-2017.01-): Cover art is a photo of the contents after painting. I think it has the same content as v2.

The packaging itself is somewhat random. The basic set up seems to be this:

  • every set of miniatures in its own ziplok bag, either on sprue, or cut from sprue
  • dice (two of the same, random colour) and bases in ziplok bag
  • Resource card deck in ziplock bag, the Stat cards are either in this bag, or in the individual bags with the miniatures
  • the empty space is filled with bubblewrap

However I've found some only half-filled with bubblewrap, and from those half-filled there were boxes, where minis were all put into one ziplok bag, or they were just poured into the box, with an empty bag put beside them. I have to admit no damage happened even with the resin parts freely wandering around the box.

I've seen several dice colours, I don't know what dictates the colour. Variations: black numbers on white, white numbers on red, red numbers on white, orange & green.
