    Dark Hold Kobold Horde

    A kickstarter from a company called Rebel Minis, who I have no experience with; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1117146348/dark-hold-kobold-28mm-scale-miniatures-horde-for-r?ref=category_newest&ref=discovery It looks like quite a good way to get a large number of figures, all rather old-school and not at all expensive. There is an early-bird add-on of a goblin pack-bearer, which I like the look of.

    The Feral Lands

    Hi everybody, Our Feral Lands campaign is going live on Tuesday, and I would like to share a draft since I always got valuable feedback in this forum. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/1220483270?ref=514475&token=8affa265
  3. Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War A miniatures game featuring exciting boarding actions in the universe of the Traveller RPG, with Imperial Marines battling Zhodani. Campaign FAQ Updates 0 Comments 12 Community Back this project Saved About Greetings fellow Travellers, and welcome to the Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War Kickstarter project! This is a project we have been wanting to do for Traveller for a long time now, and we need your help to bring it to light... Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War is a brand new miniatures game depicting vicious shipboard clashes between Imperial Marines and Zhodani Commandos during one of the mightiest conflicts to occur in Charted Space - the Fifth Frontier War. This game includes everything you need to engage in these close quarter battles, including full colour deluxe game boards, strategy cards, vital and never-before-seen background covering the Imperium and Zhodani Consulate, and two complete forces ready to fight! Inside the Box The Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War box set contains: 16 Imperial Marines 16 Zhodani Commandos, including 2 Warbots Full-colour 64 page Rulebook (download sample pages right HERE!) 40 Unit and Strategy Cards 6 Deluxe Gameboards (11.7 x 16.5 inches each) Thick cardstock counters to mark Wounds, Entry Points, Barricades and Objectives. Free-standing Iris Valves, in both open and closed configurations. Keep an eye on our Updates, as we will have plenty more previews of the rules, miniatures, and a full battle report of one of the missions! Playing the Game We have created a rules set that is very easy to get to grips with (you will have the basic rules memorised within a few minutes of playing) and yet mirrors the core rules of the Traveller RPG closely. All actions, for example, are accomplished by succeeding in an appropriate check (such as a Gun Combat check to shoot an enemy or Computers check to hack a sealed door). Play begins by selecting a ship to board, such as a Destroyer, Cruiser, or (gulp!) Battleship, and then both players build appropriate forces to attack or defend the vessel. This could be as small as a platoon or an entire company, depending on the type of ship being assaulted. An initial breach scenario is played and, from there, players will proceed through several scenarios as the two forces battle one another, culminating in either the attacking force reaching a critical objective, such as the power plant or bridge, or the defenders throwing their enemies off the ship altogether! This campaign-style of game means players have to be careful as to which forces they commit and when, marshalling their best troops for the most important fights. To complicate matters, both players will acquire Strategy Cards that will allow them to wrong foot their enemy - like turning off the ship's artificial gravity or explosively venting the atmosphere, exposing everyone to the void! Stretch Goals The Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War box set contains everything you need to play these exciting battles on the tabletop - but we have the opportunity to give you more for your money and further expand this corner of the Traveller universe. Taken on the Run If we reach a total of £60,000, we will include a printed short story written by fan-favourite Martin Dougherty. Taken on the Run begins during the first few minutes of the Fifth Frontier War and will take you through a dangerous boarding action from the point of view of the Imperial Marines. The Aslan We do not want the Imperials and Zhodani to have all the fun! If we reach a total of £80,000, we will add both the rules and 16 miniatures for the powerful Aslan, a warrior race who will look forward to boarding the largest enemy warships. The Aslan lack the sophisticated armour of the Imperium, but more than make up for that with lethal weaponry, a penchant for close combat, and sheer predatory ferocity! The Vargr Often derided as mere corsairs and pirates, the Vargr have a lot to prove. If we reach a total of £100,000, we will add both the rules and 16 miniatures for a Vargr raiding force. While not known as mighty warriors, the Vargr are exceedingly good at what they do, and many a starship has fallen to their cunning tactics. Multi-Deck Battles If we reach a total of £110,000, we will add rules to combine two or more sets of Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War so you can launch multi-deck assaults upon a warship and really keep the defenders on their toes! After More Traveller? Traveller is one of the oldest Roleplaying Games still around, and it has built up a massive amount of background lore. You can explore this universe by adding any of the following to your pledge, simply by increasing the amount you have pledged by the appropriate amount (no need to increase your pledge level, just the pledge amount!). These items will be dispatched to you post free after the surveys for the Kickstarter have been sent out, or when they are available, whichever is soonest. Traveller Starter Set (everything you need to start playing the Traveller RPG): £50 The Element Class Cruisers Ship Builder's Blueprints (explore the inner workings of an Imperial warship): £50 The Pirates of Drinax (a massive sandbox campaign to throw you into the Traveller universe): £70 Ties to the RPG? One question we have already been asked is whether you can take Travellers from the RPG and use them in Vanguard... We will not be producing 'adventurer' miniatures at this time, but we will be taking steps to ensure miniatures produced for future games are compatible with Vanguard. However, if you already have some suitable miniatures, it is an easy step to import them into Vanguard, as the important skills will translate across directly. After that, it is just a matter of worrying about the equipment. If you have characters you would like to see in Vanguard, drop us a line in the comments and we will go through them, walking you through the process to convert them! Risks and challenges We have always delivered on our Kickstarter projects and if you were to ask one of our previous backers of, say, the new Paranoia or previous Traveller project Element Cruisers Blueprints box set, we believe you would hear that the quality of our Kickstarter projects is always worth it. That said, we have taken steps to ensure Vanguard does not overrun its projected completion date. For a start, while tweaks will continue throughout the Kickstarter process, all Imperial and Zhodani miniatures are complete (you can see painted prototypes above!), the game boards are finished, and the core rules written and undergoing continual playtests. For the production of both the box set and miniatures, we are using a factory that we have used many times in the past, including the recent Traveller box sets, Paranoia supplements, and (a blast from the past!) the award-winning Starship Troopers miniatures game. This company is highly reliable and consistently produces good work on time. Mongoose Publishing announced the start date of the KS for their Traveller 28mm skirmish game as Nov 14th. http://blog.mongoosepublishing.co.uk/?m=201811

    Gnome cultist?

    Mwuahahahaha!!!!!!!! So one of the central villains in my HS game club game are going to be a band of cultists worshiping an evil snake god. I've been painting up the various Reaper Bones cultists to represent this group. This info is unknown to the players yet, so I had a yelp of excitement and joy when I was reading the kid's PC backgrounds last night. One of the PCs listed her estranged mother's profession as a "cultist". Perfect tie in to the villain - but then I had a sad face when I realized this PC is a gnome, and thus her mother would be a gnome, too. So now I am on a quest to find a decent mini to represent a gnome (or halfling) cultist. Any suggestions?

    Militia Miniatures -- The Bad Guys

    Pendraken is a company that does a wide range of 10mm historical and fantasy minis. Occasionally under other trade names they branch out into some other stuff like terrain or larger figs. In this case they are doing 28mm moderns under the trade name Militia Miniatures. Since their very friendly forum is my second home as far as posting about the hobby, I figured I would share this here even though I don't really do modern conflicts. What is Militia Miniatures? Militia Miniatures was first launched through Kickstarter in 2014, with an initial set of 10 modern mercenary personalities. 139 backers helped us reach our goal and all of the pledges were delivered within 2 months! It's taken a bit longer than we'd hoped but we're now back with a fantastic new sculptor and another 50 sculpts, all suitable for wargaming, roleplaying, or simply collecting and painting! For this project, we've had 50 new 28mm sculpts produced by the extremely talented Paolo Fabiani, which are all waiting to go into moulds. If we can hit and exceed our target then we've got some nice extra goals planned... Here is the link to the KS.
  6. I do like Copplestone Castings Future War range: This chap has plainly had a REALLY bad day at the office.
  7. About The Amazons are a new line of 28mm white metal and urethane resin table top gaming figurines from RBJ Game Company. Digitally rendered by Master Sculptor Bobby Jackson and faithfully brought to physical reality by Fortress Figures using cutting edge technology to bring you the unquestionably highest quality metal and resin miniature available today. Stretch goals apply to any pledge of $50 or more. (removed due to nudity) SCALE SHOT PAINTED EXAMPLES This project is for unpainted, white metal and/or resin figurines.

SHIPPING On the end of the campaign, each backer will be issued a coupon code via e-mail to redeem at our on-line store for your pledge rewards.

    Bunny girls

    Bunny Girls, modeled by Brother vinnie. Need I say more? There's also a set of bunnies to choose for those who need a familiar or just to add to a diorama.
  9. On top of painting my Zombiecide models. I have started to paint a numbers of Heresy Miniatures models. I have based five models and undercoated them and the first has a few coats of paints on him. as always comment welcome.

    Heresy Miniatures - Maggotmen

    And the last post here for today is a set of nasty looking Maggotmen by Heresy Miniatures. These will form part of my Dragon Rampant army at some point, similar to Ghouls they feast upon the corpses of their victims. A simple painting scheme was used and the models were left gloss to give them a wet look. Thanks for looking and as always comments welcome.

    Heresy Miniatures Heros

    Here is a selection for three heroes for use in Frostgrave or other such games. I really like like the sculpts, and think I have done a reasonable job on the painting. Thanks for looking as always comments welcome.

    Dungeon Saga undead.

    Another set of undead model used for alternative sources for my Dragon Raman’s Army. I painted up a selection keeping the colours simple. I opted to keep them on their bases so they can be reused in Dungeon Saga. Thanks for looking, comments welcome.

    Zombicide Black Plague models.

    Continuing with more models for my Dragons Rampant army I grabbed a selection of models from Zombiecide. These are well detailed and painted up well for archers, zombies and skeletons. These are are painted using a limited pallete to keep them simple and easy to paint. I kept the basing simple as well. thanks for looking as always comments welcome.
  14. We currently have a second Kickstarter live at the moment, entitled Starship II - 3D printable OpenLOCK-compatible Deck Plans.

    28mm Sci-Fi Skirmish Games?

    It's been 6 years since I last played a sci-fi table top game in 28mm. Wondering what is out there BESIDES 40k these days? What are you playing and/or what do you recommend? My favorite in the past were 40k 2e and Necromunda. I prefer more skirmish level, and capable of handling multiple players/sides.
  16. Can anyone recommend any miniatures 28mm to be suitable for the beast quest series of books by Adam Blade. These would be for my sons. The two main characters are young adventures. One is a boy with a sword and shield, the other is a female ranger/archer with a pet wolf. Any my suggestions would be appreciated.
  17. If you've seen my other posts here, you know I normally work on larger scale figures. But recently I took on a commission to paint the 28mm version of Kingdom Death's White Speaker. I actually painted the 54mm version a few years back, so I thought it'd be an interesting exercise to see how I could do on the 28mm one. So far my focus has been on the skin. The other sections just have some dark undercoats. I played around with my mixes a bit on this one. I started by base coating her with a 2:1 mix of Rosy Shadow and Bronzed Shadow. I then used a 4:1 mix of Chestnut Brown and Rosy Shadow to create the darkest shadows. From there I worked up to a 3:1 mix of Rosy Skin and Bronzed Skin and finally added in Fair Highlight for the brightest parts. Although she's a female figure, I still went for a more dramatic contrast range and brought out some of the muscles more than I might on a different female subject. This one is a badass warrior, so she should be pretty fit.

    Not A-team minis

    So anyone have any recommendations for minis to represent the A-Team?
  19. These are what I finished painting this year, a year that was somewhat abbreviated by world events. Really, this is what I painted in the last six months, since political dismay kept me from the miniatures table for approximately eight months after the last US Presidential election. This year I painted my first Reaper Warlord figures who were also my first oversized werewolves, 77754 the Rageclaw Slayer, and 77755, Aislinn, Shadow Tracker. Nearly everything I painted was for the White Wolf World of Darkness and Exalted.

  20. These are the "Vampire Brides" from Bad Squiddo Games, which last summer came out with a line of Hammer-type horror figures called "My Last Sunrise." They are sculpted by Gus Kearns and were introduced with the tag line "Get married, they said. Best day of your life, they said." WIP thread here.
  21. <<<MOD>>> Link to the Live Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dgsgames/eclipse-sisterhood-freeblades-fantasy-miniatures?ref=category_newest From DGS Games, "We will launch the Eclipse Sisterhood kickstarter campaign on the afternoon of February 14th 2017. This project will produce the six core models of the faction: leader, caster, two heroes and two followers. And as many stretches as our fans help us reach! For the Traazorites, that was four models. Let's show the Empire these fierce women can do even better!"

    SER WAYMAR ROYCE NIGHTS WATCH

    Kathud !!! I finished another Dark Sword Miniature this afternoon. I got some upsetting news, so I painted it off, intead of letting it bother me. So, with that said... This is a HEAP OF FUN to paint. I actually did it twice. When I looked at number 1 I liked it, but it was boring. So I got out the paints AGAIN, and figured out another paint scheme. I based my second set of painting on "Night Watch", and that is what is here. Very complicated Sculpt to paint, and get into. Multi level highlighting also makes the brush work that more complicated. 28mm is SMALL, so keep tips well pointed ! Do have fun, its worth it on this one. Comments (negative or positive) are greatly appreciated ! Here he is: Jay

    ZOE The Golden Ranger.

    I have been threatening to finish Zoe The Golden Retriever sometime this week. Last nights sixteen degrees F provided the impetus ! I was too cold to sleep well. So Here is ZOE. This is a beautiful, soul full piece to work on. Capturing the emotion in that small face, getting everything painted and mounted proved quite the challenge to me. In the end Zoe was a real treat to do. Not that often I really get into a feeling level while painting a miniature. Mr. Summers must have had a beautiful and loving companion in Zoe, it came through the Sculpt ! Hope I did it Justice. Let me know what you think of my efforts on this mini please ! Jay

    Page of Wands

    I looked at this sculpt with a GREAT amount of fear and nervousness. Complicated, Multi-small parts, and just a complete display of "I will make you jump through hoops". It lived up to its threat. Gluing was tedious, and physically painful. Sharp ! There is nothing really intuitive on this piece, even the head goes on crooked !! You have to do a difficult mini in order to grow, and this one will provide ample opportunity! ROFL. She is fun, Challenging, and color wise, a field of flowers waiting to be painted. Hope you enjoy. Give me a comment about what you think please. All are appreciated. So here is the Page of Wands from Dark Sword Mini's, I have adored painting her, and have spent 11 days completing her. Jasonator.

    Young Robert Baratheon

    Incredible, that's the only way I can describe the experience of Painting this Miniature. Tom Meier is know for his skill, but he has this ability to put so much detail into the smallest of Mini's. This is NO exception. Loved working on this mini (look out for the antlers..."SHARP". The Mini is also very small. I have experimented all over the place on this mini. Colors were the basic Wash/primer/than Brown Liner. I then started mixing Nightmare black (which is really blue) and put on about seven coats, mixed vampire whites into pallet, Cavalry reds, washed, and anything I could mix in there. I had my trusty color wheel out, and was just playing. Eventually he said "I'm done/cooked/finished. So here he is. I even used clear colors in this paint trip. Your comments are solicited, and very appreciated. Do let me know what you think. Jay Here are some photos: I Forgot to add the obligatory quarter when I paint anything by Tom Meier; gives you an idea how small he is !
