I guess early on they had issues scaling 3D sculpted models properly for production as they lacked experience. I recall Domaru being delayed, because they scaled them too big for 25mm bases, so they had to be printed again. And they do printing off site, so I guess it takes some time for minis to travel back and forth. That being said, laziness of their sculpting is sometimes amazing. I understand reusing digital assets, but some things cannot be justified. And some design choices, like making females tiny is another thing I really don't understand. CB increased blister prices ~ 22% in the last 4 and a half years ( or more if the model is on tactical rock that costs extra these days, like those aren't universally hated already ), I expect to get same amount of lead for that money no matter if it's male or female model.
