  1. Some friends are doing this, under their Infinite Dimensions Games, though I'm not involved. The Kickstarter will take place in March and is for digital files for 3D print. If I remember correctly there are no physical rewards. While people should hold off until the details of the crowdfund are released, my understanding is that the core set is done, any stretch goals will pay for the labour of doing the design/sculpting of those items only, so the core set would be ready as soon as funding period is over. They have a Facebook and Instagram and more for lots of previews (but I'm not linking because I'm not sure what on those sites will break forum rules), and if anyone is attending BreakoutCon this year in Toronto, they will be there displaying.
  2. This is from the latest Randomness thread (I can’t seem to quote directly into a “Create New Topic” page): Notes are cribbed from Wikipedia and other places because I am not an expert on this music. I just enjoy it. I expect to add more songs later. Here’s one of my favorites first. Ríu Ríu Chíu (Spanish, 16th century) Notes (cribbed from online sources): This is a Spanish villancico (a type of song popular between the 15th and 18th centuries) attributed to Mateo Flecha the Elder (d. 1553). It is known from a single manuscript presently in Uppsala, published in 1556. The Monkees, of all people, did a cover of it (this is not that version). The phrase Ríu Ríu Chíu is said to be the cry of an attacking Kingfisher guarding the riverbank from wolves (Sorry, Glitterwolf and Chaoswolf ...). Lyrics: Riu, riu, chiu la guarda ribera / Dios guardó el lobo de nuestra cordera / Dios guardó el lobo de nuestra cordera. El lobo rabioso la quiso morder / Mas Dios Poderoso la supo defender / Quizo la hacer que no pudiese pecar / Ni aun original esta virgen no tuviera. Riu, riu, chiu... Este que es nascido es El Gran Monarca / Cristo Patriarca de carne vestido / Ha nos redimido con se hacer chiquito / Aunque era infinito finito se hiciera. Riu, riu, chiu ... Este viene a dar a los muertos vida / Y viene a reparar de todos la caida / Es la luz del dia aqueste Moçuelo / Este es el Cordero que San Juan dijera. Riu, riu, chiu ... Yo vi mil Garzones que andavan cantando / Por aqui volando haciendo mil sones / Diciendo a gascones Gloria sea en el Cielo / Y paz en el suelo pues Jesus nasciera. Riu, riu, chiu ... Pues que ya tenemos lo que deseamos / Todos juntos vamos presentes llevemos / Todos le daremos nuestra voluntad / Pues a se igualar con nosotros viniera. Riu, riu, chiu ... English translation: Riu, riu, chiu The river bank is protected God has kept the wolf From our ewe lamb God has kept the wolf From our ewe lamb The rabid wolf Wanted to bite her But Almighty God Knew how to defend her He willed to make her Unable to sin Even original sin This virgin did not have Riu, riu, chiu... The one who is born Is the Great Monarch Christ the Patriarch Clothed in flesh He has redeemed us By making himself small Though he was infinite He became finite Riu, riu, chiu... He comes to give Life to the dead He comes to repair The fall of all mankind This Child Is the light of day He is the Lamb Of whom St. John spoke Riu, riu, chiu... I saw a thousand Angels Who were singing Flying around Chanting in a thousand voices Saying to the shepherds Glory in Heaven And peace on earth For Jesus is born Riu, riu, chiu... Now we have What we desire Let us go together To present him gifts Let us all give him Our will For he came As our equal Riu, riu, chiu...
  3. Hello everyone. I am launching and managing a 28mm Vikings Kickstarter for Acheson Creations this Monday at 8am. I created a Facebook event to help promote. Please check share the event page and follow the "ticketing" link to take you to the preview of the Kickstarter. Thanks! EVENT LINK PHOTO GALLERY
  4. Just a quick question; what is the correct name for the ribbon like hanging that loops through the ring on this Bones 3 figure's back and then forward through the rings on each shoulder? Are they based on an historical equivalent or are they just fantasy adornments?

    1980s Essex Foot Soldier

    Here's an old Medieval wargaming miniature from the 1980s, produced by Essex Miniatures. Essex were among the first to start producing larger scale 28mm miniatures, although they actually advertised them as 25mm. Up until then, 25mm had been the standard, and Essex armies towered over their opponents on the wargames table. Basing systems had been designed for 25mm figures too, so Essex figures tended to be very crowded on bases designed for the smaller scale. They tended towards rather caricatured, cartoonish features, but I always rather liked them, except for their horses which looked a bit small and spindly underneath their gigantic riders. Eventually they also started producing 15mm miniatures which were also excellent, and a lot more affordable than larger scale armies.
  6. I painted this Games Workshop Hurricanum a couple of months ago and the orrery that goes with it separately, but I had not gotten around to posting the Hurricanum on Show Off because I was waiting until I finished painting all the miniatures that go with it. Since that is taking a bit longer to get to as I've been painting other stuff, I figured I can at least post this now. I also painted this medieval cart from Fenryll recently. I was inspired to paint both of these in order to populate the town streets I hope to build when I get my Dwarven Forge City Builder Kickstarter stuff in January.
  7. I've got a long term project on the go - I'm designing a skirmish game, set in a slightly-fantasyish 14th century England. It's a slow process, but I've made a start, and I'll be working on it whenever I get spare time. If you fancy a look, I've started a small blog to document the development process here: http://ravensrodd.com/ And because posting just a link to a blog is a bit naughty, here's a couple of pics of minis for the project... Anyway, thanks if you take the time to look, and any feedback is appreciated; either here, or by email. cheers, Michael
