Recommended Posts

Too bad the three I like are all in different packs. Makes the will save a little too easy...

I like the concepts. The half-orc druid is inspired. I have faith in Kev Adams' sculpting.

 

But I ain't gonna IndieGoGo. Nuh-uh. I'll wait for retail on these puppies.

Is INdieGoGo somehow worse/inferior to kickstarter?

Ehhh...  It's not inherently worse, but it depends on which funding option they choose.  Unfortunately, this one went with flexible funding.  That means that even if the Kickstarter isn't successful, they keep your money.  If they'd gone with fixed funding, it would be basically like a Kickstarter, but with lower exposure.

Seriously?  Thank you for telling me this - I would never, ever back anything under those terms.  I mean that just sounds insane.

The project owners are still obliged to complete the project if they go for 'flexible' funding...I've backed two which have done so.

 

The only difference between IGG and KS is that you pay up front for IGG.

I like the look of this project, but with P&P and customs charges I'm only supporting UK/Euro projects these days

I had the same experience here. Orcs! only raised a little over half of it's funding, but still managed to have many happy customers. I know I was very satisfied by my Orc Hunting Pack: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/orcs/x/87644

 

One very big positive to indiegogo projects, is that fulfillment is usually much faster due to the smaller scope. This project seems already well underway, so minis should be ready pretty quickly.

 

I think I will end up backing. A dozen old school styled minis by Kev Adams for $65 sounds pretty good to me. Although, when I hear Dragonbait, I expect to see this guy:

These are some lovely pieces, but I share the problem of the pieces I like the most being spread across several packs.  I do wonder if we'll see any fun stretch goals past the first two mentioned.

Thanks for that Suden! :) I was the one behind Orcs! and it does me good hearing people being positive about it!

I love old school miniatures but I won't back flex funding projects on Indigogo.  I hope they get made so I can search them out at a retail level.

      So it's been a few weeks since I've finished a minis, been kind of busy, but finally got this guy done last night,  another Hackmaster figure that was picked up by Ral Partha, this time a mature-looking wizard with a nice wooden staff.  As always, it took forever to decide colors and with his inner clothing, the lilac, that was the easiest, but after that, took a while to figure out the green in his cloak and blue on the outside.
       

       
      He has a little potion at his belt, tried to do a liquid effect, when I look at the photo, not so sure how it turned out though.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      So at the same time I was working on my female hill giant, I was also working on two centaurs that the great Julie Guthrie had sculpted around 1982. I did them at the same time because I was looking for the same flesh tones because both I figured spend tons of time outside so should be very tan. 
       
      Anyhow, an advanced warning and a link because the female centaur is showing off her mammal parts, so here's a link to her front:
       
      Female Centaur front
       
      and from the other side:
       

       
      As well as her male companion, who is chasing her around it seems like:
       

       
      Anyway a flash back into the past.  These centaurs weren't actually available too long either, being replaced by other figures under their same code.  I was told that if a set or figure didn't sell at least 200 pieces, they would get retired, so I imagine this might have been their fate back then which is a pity because they are really beautiful minis.
       
      And I've had both of these since the eighties, but finally got around to painting them, so hope you enjoy! It's never too late to paint a mini!

      Hello Everybody,
       
      so partially inspired by a post Master Buglips did a year ago that I can't help but keep looking back to, and partially inspired by the fact that this is a figure I've always wanted to get around to painting since I first saw it in the latter seventies/early eighties, I've finally taken the plunge and splattered some paint on this excellent figure sculpted by Julie Guthrie.  Unpainted, her face seems to be a little bit surreal, but once you actually get some paint on her, her face becomes both brutal and beautiful at the same time. 
       

       
      As in everything, these pictures let me see tons of imperfections, but if you look at it with your bare eyeballs, or even close up with some magnification goggles, you don't really notice certain things.  
       
      I really love this figure, and started with her skin as a base of Tanned Shadow, and then went down and up from there.  Tried to keep her firmly tied into earth tones, but had to do something with the jewels, but tried to make them "nature related" by keeping them green.  
       
      For a giant nowadays, she's pretty small, but if you put her up against any Partha piece of your time, she fits in quite nicely.  I now have a painted giant collection that has reached the grand old amount of seven, three Meier Frost Giants, two Meier Hill Giants, a Meier Cloud Giant, and this Julie Guthrie gem, who is the smallest and squattest of them all (except if you hunt down the Tom Meier Fire Giant, who is probably just about the same size as a 21st century man-sized figure).

      This is by Bob Naismith, who has a long pedigree in figure design.
       
       I really like all of it, especially the hoverbikes. But the prices are steep. I might buy a couple of display pieces, wish I could afford an army.
