CSM's Tome of Horrors Complete

Recommended Posts

"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:)

      About this project
       
       
       
      Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

      The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
      This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

      In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
      But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
      For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

      Play with the full dynamic 2d20 game system featuring:
      Cinematic action driven by the twin engines of Heat and Momentum The triple battlefields of Warfare, Infowar, and Psywar A multifaceted Zones system which brings the game world to life All New Artwork of the Infinity universe commissioned by Modiphius and Corvus Belli Find out more about the 2d20 System further down the page Explore the definitive guide to the Infinity universe with: A complete Chronology of the Human Sphere detailing centuries of bloodshed The culture, history, and intrigue of seven powerful factions Gazetteers for all twelve planets of the Human Sphere, including beautiful, full-color maps Leap into your character by: Forging your identity with an immersive Lifepath character creation system Fighting for your faction with the fractious, innovative Wilderness of Mirrors scenario design system Facing dozens of fearsome, ready-to-play adversaries who stand between you and your destiny! A 368 page book packed with everything you need to roleplay in the Human Sphere and beyond!
      Here are our popular Pledge Levels, we'll be adding more as they are unlocked. Note: There will be more Bostria Art Pledges for the Core and Supplements unlocked, we'll send an update before they are so you have a chance to grab one
