CSM's Tome of Horrors Complete

"We've already made contact with our regular sculptors Tim Prow, Mark Evans,Nicholas and Federico Genovese and Patrick Keith. We've also opened communications with Gary Morley, a former Games Workshop sculptor, and Drew Williams. We're excited about acquiring some new talent on that front!"

 

I think Federico Genovese, Tim Prow, and Jason Wieb did the bulk of Demons and Devils, and Patrick Keith did a few of the females.

I like patrick keith's work. I don't quite dig the others. Those new ones, we know anything they sculpted?

I'm not trying to be snarky, but I'm sure google and a few minutes would get you that answer. I personally do not know their work.

A little google-fu and I found out that Morely's work is... less than loved in the Warhammer circles. Apparently his suffers from bad posing. Although he has put out some gems, like a lot of the Eldar and Dark Eldar were done by him.

 

One of Morley's most hated works

Drew's work is extremely solid. He did some work for Matt on the Demons KS and is now working on Midgard with Mick. Really great stuff from him, including this little lady which is my #1 favorite sculpt from the Demons KS project.

Google can always get you answers, but I was interested in the opinion of people here. I value the reaper forum peep's opinions more because I know the sort of people, while the opinion of 'the internet' tends to be varying wildly between extreme fanboy and really angry. :)

 

Also not being snarky. ^_^

So...a glance at CSM's website (not an exhaustive search by any stretch) shows only two of the minis from the Demons and Devils KS available for purchase now. Most of the sculpts from that KS are either not my cup of tea or not something I need, so I didn't back...but the Marilith and the Nalfeshnee would be nice (I always want more of the former, and I've never seen a mini of the latter). Is there any word on that from them? And if not, what did the KS actually do for them (not actually excited about helping someone produce a bunch of completely limited edition sculpts).

 

Also not interested in the high buy-in for this one, and very underwhelmed by the concept art.

Completely understand where you're coming from on this, but I can clarify that the art shown on the page is the original art form the book, designed to let people know what CSM is planning. it is not the actual sculpt concept art.

 

And as for the high buy in, the $200 level is going to be very, very worth it once we get past the initially listed stretch goals. And the $100 for the 17 listed minis isn't too bad, either. Of course YMMV, and it's not for everyone, Frog God Games and CSM appreciate you taking a look though. Stop back by in a week or two and see if anything catches you eye!

The 28mm Demons/Devils one hasn't started shipping yet and the pledge manager is currently still open. I believe it's still waiting for 2 or 3 greens as well. There was suggestion it may not ship until this Kickstarter has finished, not sure home accurate that it is though.

Thank you :) That fact isn't terribly encouraging about this one though.

Regarding Shipping of the Demons and Devils:

 

"As I've been saying all along in this thread, we'll be tallying all of the numbers once all the surveys are in (still dozens outstanding), and we'll allow our casting company the month of May to cast. That's also allowing for molds to be made of latecomer models like the Prince of Undead and the remaining three models which should be done within the next week! Metal is faster than resin, and we've already got hundreds of the bulk of the KS models cast up; for example, I've already got 1500 lemures in metal; 400 of at least 12 other models sitting here in metal; it's just the models that came in later we're waiting on at this point. Metal casting is easy - a company can crank out hundreds of models in an hour. Resin is much trickier - where metal is ready in a matter of minutes, resin can take HOURS to cast. It needs to set. And resin molds are much more delicate - where you might get 200 spins out of a metal mold, you'll get about 25-30 resin castings out of a resin mold cavity before it needs to be molded again. That being said, fulfillment will begin when May's castings start coming in - the lower levels will be simple enough to fulfill, and some of those might be going out even in May. However, the larger the orders - and the more add-ons - the more I am at the casting company's mercy. Regardless, I think you'll be pleased with how things are coming along and how much we've already got in stock. We're working diligently over on this end, rest assured. Those of you who pledged to TORN WORLD will have your pledge rewards before the end of May - that KS will be entirely fulfilled, as well, before we roll into June. So as you can see, we're making progress - now we're at the mercy processes that take time and manpower. I guarantee you'll be pleased with your box when it arrives. And you've still got three more sculpts to droll over when they roll in :)"

For clarification, those two (Baphomet and the Molydeus) were included in the sweet spot pledge in the KS, but they weren't actually being kickstarted themselves. They were pre-existing products.

 

I just don't want anyone to get the mistaken impression they are selling any of the KS sculpts before the KS rewards ship.

Gonna agree with you here. Not really a fan of most of the pieces in the original 17. The $100 price tag isn't bad for them, but I can pick out about 5 that I really like/can't get elsewhere. If I back, it'll be at the $50, 8 piece level. Seems to be almost the exact same price per mini as the $100 spot, but... you know, half the price :;):

 

The real problem is that $200 pledge level is, yet again, putting way too much faith in smashing down tons of stretch goals. Unless this project gets an extra 12+ models unlocked from stretch goals, that level is a complete waste. I was hoping Matt would have learned to put less faith in the stretch goals when designing his project, maybe listen to the myriad of people who said to try and copy Stonehaven's structure (At least, I think people were telling him to do that... If they weren't, they should have :lol:)

      Their last Kickstarter (Dwarves) was full of great, characterful sculpts and delivered very much on time. This here seems a worthy successor (look, Beagle, no Dwarves):
       
       
      Balalaika Maiden: The Gardariki Trade Caravans always include entertainers, poets and the like as well as the more pecuniary-inclined. When the day’s work is done, they string up a tune to entertain at the banquet table.
      Set 01 – Market Women: Although the actual Fair focuses on the trade of commodities and precious goods from near and far, supplies for daily life in the bustling town is provided by the peasants and small craftsmen from the city’s bailiwick. In many cases, it is the women who man the stalls and wander the market square proffering their goods.
      Set 02 – No time to chat!: As the market opens, there is always a jostle for the best spots. No time for a friendly chat then, although once the hunting grounds have been staked out, call and chatter fills the various market areas.
      Set 03 – Georg von Würstenberg, Master of the Butchers’ Guild: Formerly a mere butcher, Georg von Würstenberg made his way to the top of the prestigious Butchers’ Guild, his paunch equalling his influence and power. Some say that, along the way, various rivals ended up in his product, but not to his face! Wherever he goes, he is announced by his herald, Peter Pfefferbeis.
      Set 04 – Guardsmen of the Butchers’ Guild: The Guilds of Bruegelburg always vie for the prime spot in the City Council, and many are not above using nefarious means to advance their own position. Hence, prominent Guild members are escorted by armed guards, who also make up militias policing various areas of the town where the Town Guards cannot or will not go.
      Set 05 – Patricians: The richest and most powerful merchants of Bruegelburg are commonly called “Patricians”, and it is they who head the various factions in the City Council. As the Fair opens, they can be seen ambulating across the Grand Hall, sampling wares and making deals.
      Set 06 – Country Nobles: The City of Bruegelburg is surrounded by various small villages and fiefs, some loyal to regional potentates, some allied with the city. The heads of these fiefs invariably visit the city for the great Fair to see and be seen.
      Set 07 – Paupers of Bruegelburg: At the bottom of the social ladder, a teeming mass of paupers and beggars, pickpockets and thugs makes a living in the meaner parts of town. As the market opens, they venture forth to profit from charity and carelessness, respectively. 
      Set 08 – A Word in Jest: Entertainment is a key aspect of the Market Day, and Jesters from near and far are happy to provide. Just don’t forget to guard your purse as you watch their antics on the stage! 
      Set 09 – A jesting Tjost: An increasingly popular pageant in recent years is the “Jesters’ Tjost”, a parody of the grand tournaments that hail back to the great days of knights long past, with the entertainers striving for the most amusing way to “unhorse” each other and poke fun at their betters. 
      Set 10 – Days of Childhood: Market Day is a welcome diversion from the often dull and dreary life of kids in Bruegelburg, and gaggles of children can be seen everywhere.

      Looks like Twisted is coming out with a kickstarter!
       
      AND IT'S LIVE!
      We've seen quite a few of them painted up on the forum, very cool steampunk figures. The company is owned/operated by Sebastian Archer who also owns/sculpts for his other brand (Guild of Harmony). I've ordered a few GoH figures in the past and Sebastian always gets the figures out from Australia to the US very quickly.
       

       

       
      Some of the figures from Twisted -
       

       
      EXCITING NEWS! The countdown is now on: we have set a date for the launch of the Twisted Kickstarter campaign - February 16th!
       
      Note it down in your diaries and stay tuned for more information about what will be included in the campaign. As well as launching the Twisted rules and adding lots and lots of new miniatures, we have some very exciting surprises in store for you. All will be revealed soon - we can't wait!

      Looks like plastic mecha are all the rage. Between Robotech and CAV I'm going to be up to my ears in mecha...but the idea of gears that don't cost an arm and a leg may be too much to resist. Don't know that I'll go big on this one, probably one of the army boxes or a $1 pledge with some add-ons. These aren't likely to be used with their game so I'm not looking to get more than handful, definitely not more than say, 20.
       
      Says starting in October, not sure when though.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.
