Help, anyone know what the Crusader robot from Ghost studios is?

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I bought some miniatures off e-bay. The Crusader robot from ghost studios. Each Sprue is one robot, and has like 20+ pieces. I cant find any info on Ghost studios or what game this is from. There are a lot of small pieces and I am hoping someone knows what these are and can point me to a build guide or some info on how to make them. I constructed one... Incorrectly... Left leg looks backwards, I think i reversed the arms... etc... 

 

Even wrong it still looks pretty good... especially at $1 each... So, if anyone knows what these are, please help. 

 

Here are the photos that were on the e-bay listing..

Thank you,

Bill

Many of us consider Facebook to be icky.  You'll get a better response posting the image here.  Ghost Studio did some work for Defiance Games, an apparently deservedly defunct company.  They did some MaK-like suits and a sort of walking gunship.  Is this even close?

Man I wanted those sooooo bad.  Something felt off about the kickstarter so I didn't back it.  Talk about dodging a train wreck.

Doing a reverse image search on the box art. Say it's from a CthulhuTech spin off mini game that was started then "vaporwared."

Thanks for the responses. It's a shame they were not produced then as the are nice. The arms and legs are articulated to allow you to rotate the arms or bend the joints. So no build instructions. Fuss I will have to trial and error them. I ended up with 40 so I have so room to play around.

This kickstarter was total kryptonite for me - those suits were literally perfect designs. But between being a little hard-pressed financially, and, yeah, something feeling a little off, I ended up figuring I would pick some up at retail. 

 

Thank goodness for making my willpower check. Wotta flipping disaster that turned out to be.

Did I read correctly, that Defiance Games are the people who left Torn Armor in the lurch?

 

Wow, looks like you have some orphaned minis there.

I think I am in love with those robots. Will now have to search eBay to see if there are any left.

 

The whole Defiance debacle is a real shame. The funniest part, though, are all the people who claim in hindsight that they used their "Spider-Sense" to magically detect that "something was wrong the whole time," , but that's not copacetic with reality.

 

IN REALITY, many people joined the Kickstarter with eyes wide open, and Defiance actually had real, viable product on the market at one time. I know, because I still have a whole box of their awesome Marines that I bought from my wholesaler, with the Defiance Games logo stamped right on the bottoms of the bases. You could see things going downhill over time. But some people like to act like they "knew it all along."

 

I'm glad I didn't get involved in the Kickstarter. But it wasn't because I used my potent psychic powers to avoid it.  :rolleyes:

I did get burned by that.

 

Fortunately only for a small amount. But that's a small handful of Reaper minis I could have gotten instead, or a KD figure I kind of want but can't justify down the drain.

I mean, you didn't need Kewl Psychic Pwerz to get the impression that something was off with that Kickstarter - just a little bit of caution and willingness to do some research before dropping hard-earned dolla bills on it. Tony Reidy was (ostensibly not, but who knows? maybe sorta) involved in the KS, and Defiance already had a reputation for being somewhat... tardy... in getting products into people's hands. And it's not like it was terribly hard to find information on how this might go pear-shaped - the very announcement thread on these forums was quickly filled with "I ain't doin this one" and 'go in with eyes open' warnings, from very early on.

Oh, I'm not saying that those who did their research couldn't figure it out. I just find all the Monday-morning quarterbacks humorous. There's always somebody who makes everybody feel worse by claiming he knew all along when he probably didn't know any better than the average Joe.

      Hey guys. I'm back after having my wisdom teeth removed :/ nasty surgery had to have some recovery. But I started painting again and I was wondering; am I getting speckling here? It used to be really bad but I diluted down a touch and I think it's better. Could use some help.

      Hello, compatriots! I am a college student in desperate need of useful sources of information! I have taken upon the task of writing my final project in my composition class on the history of wargaming and tabletop miniatures. Painting miniatures is potentially my biggest hobby, and it seemed like an excellent topic for a paper. I need to do a 12-minute elevator pitch of my paper next Friday, and the paper itself must be 2,500 words and is due at the end of the semester (May 5th).
       
      The issue is, I'm having difficulty finding sources that I can cite. I'd go hunting for books, but I don't have a whole ton of time to wait for shipping. So, I've come to you folks. If there are any sources that you are aware of that will help me in my journey, please post them here. If there are important people I could potentially email and ask questions of, that would be cool, too. I already have some info with W. Britain beginning production of hollow lead toy soldiers and the publication of H.G. Welles' "Little Wars". I'd like to know more about when and how painting miniatures for wargames became a hobby of its own, major changes in the miniature manufacturing industry, key players, where we are today, etc.

      Hi guys,
       
      So I got a greater number of Infinity Aleph minis from a guy who doesn't find them fit to his playstyle.
       
      Anyway - I decided to create my own bases, opposite to the clean and attractive style of the Aleph minis using some kind of a long lost and ruined city.
       
      Like this:
       

       
      I also got Atalanta and her SpotBot and I think that this spotbot has quite a personality and I want to create his base accordingly.
       
      (Picture for reference)
       

       
      So I thought that it would be fitting to have some kind of robot head or so he could stare at. (Like to 2b in the picture below - but being a mechanical rabbit with sad eyes).
       

       
      So I thought about using a space marine head but I don't find it fitting to the whole setting and it would just disappear between the rubble and the debris I prepared for the base. And it wouldn't match the style of Infinity.
       
      On the other hand - I tried using a bandai mecha/gundam head and it is way too big for a 25mm base. Does anyone have an idea which could help me solve the problem?

      I'm painting a Rageclaw Warrior and I'm trying to figure out what this thing is.  He has a leather strap wrapped around one of his hind legs and there's something hanging off it.  Can anyone tell what it is?  It's a package or a letter maybe?  I don't know what color to paint it.
