Red Box Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

For those interested this KS is closing in on $55000 so Tre's awesome zombies are available and it is adding cavalry options at the moment.

 

With less than 2 days to go it looks like it will get over $60k, with more backers we could even go further.

My vampires never glow, unless they drink the blood of irradiated prey.

 

And the kickstarter just passed $60k, so three cavalry have been unlocked. Keep an eye on it tomorrow; Tre mentioned he was going to try one last stretch goal.

And he has added another awesome barbarian/berserker character model as a $70k stretch goal that is free for the 2 highest pledge levels.

 

With yesterday being the biggest day for the KS, a huge finish might see Tre have to add something else as well!

A wright, a wright! He got me for the $145 level (plus Svetlana). <sigh>

 

Damn the torpedoes (and bills)!

 

At least I waited to be the one that pushed it over 70k! ;)

I ended up at the $185 with a pair of svetlana.

Not entirely sure how I'll sort my ranks and characters. Will probably end up with a few of the cavalry and some friends for Fenris. And lots of zombies and armored krigare.

I'm in at $145 with a Svetlana & a T-Shirt :)

 

I'll be getting 1 of everything and maybe extra Fenris models to really push that dire wolf pack out (adding to my Reaper ones).

 

The end was pretty crazy, the end of the Reaper one is going to be insane!

The end of this one snuck up on me and I only ended up at $110, with no frills. I meant to add a Svetlana, but I woke up, went to work, came home and had already missed my chance. :(

 

Still, six ranks of Helsvakt and 18 of Tre's zombies (which are my favorite), plus all the other stuff, is a pretty awesome haul.

Major Thread Necromancy!

 

Despite all the issues that haunted this one, Tre has come through.

 

Having looked over the miniatures, Trollcast does seem like a very nice material for moderately (hordesmen) to fairly (krigare) bulky figures, as well as less bulky, but not overly detail-rich ones (zombies). It appears it's not quite ideal for four-legged critters and I'm a bit sceptical when it comes to extremely fine figures/details. Most notably, some parts (e.g. wrists, axe handles) of the helsmaidens look liable to break if I look at them wrong. Which is doubly problematic as finer detailseems to be at higher risk of warping.

 

I

... wonder if the rest of the posting got eaten during posting or during moving? Darned.

 

What was I going to say? Oh, right.

 

"Would buy again, though preferably not in Trollcast."

Congrats to Tre and his wife for sticking through this one and getting it finished. He posted that they shipped the last package yesterday.

      I think this is my favorite sculpt (at least top 5). I’ve had it for quite some time now but for whatever reason it never got to the front of the line. Recently I thought “what the hell” and put him into the paint queue. 
      I have been struggling for quite some time with trying OSL. Every attempt ended with me calling it quits and discarding that element from the paint scheme. This is the second one that I decided to keep (the first one is the two skulls from the bones cultist circle). I’m really happy with the overall result.

      “OK, so the Fireball spell didn’t work that well. Any other ideas Owl?”
      “Hoo!? You asking me!? I’m just an owl.”
       
      Probably my last mini for the year.
      Wasn’t planning on painting the cloak brown since it sorta merges with the hair and owl, but a slight accident forced it on me.
      I like the way it turned out tough.
       
      Thanks for looking.

      This is Hasslefree HFD104 Drya Lafhelgasdottir, sculpted by Tre Manor, and not, as I identified all through the WIP thread, a Red Box Games dwarf. I think I was confused because she was by Tre Manor.
       
      She is also the last, the seventh, of the dwarves I painted for the project "Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs," an effort both to get some dwarves painted up for general gaming use, and to make a group of Jadeborn for a game of Exalted.
       

       

       

       

       

       
         
       

       

       

       
      This is a photo of all the project's figures together:

      Surprised this hasn't made it here yet.
      Tre is at it again, this time with an Aenglish based warband.  Sitting at 10 figures for $55.  A full-figured female mage with her male apprentice, a female thief and 7 semi modular men-at-arms.  End date is 8 days away (KS just went live yesterday), and he has several stretch goals planned.  Just about funded now.
       
      Sorry for no picture, my work computer doesn't like to cough up links.

      Here are 8 of my 16 Bones orcs. I cut each figure off of their broccoli base and used my Basius basing pads to create custom bases. Additionally, I did some kit-bashing with plastic weapons from the Bones 3 Kickstarter.
       
      I swapped the two-handed sword from the Orc Berserker for an axe which I envisioned him taking from an elf or dwarf.
      For the Orc Hunter, I cut off his spear and swapped out a mace and dagger combo since I felt like he could pull off a rogue look. 
       
      In my DND world, 90% of orcs are olive green skinned, and 10% are of a subrace known as Dreadnaught Orcs. This breed of orc has purple-hued skin tones due to magical enhancement by mages from a long-forgotten war. They're smarter, tougher, and have innate magical abilities.
       
      I went for a variety of skin tones to try and make them look more unique.
