About this project

 Hello all,

You are looking for a female leader for your orc army, or just a cool miniature to paint ? 

Well, this is my first kickstarter, so don't be afraid if the layout is pretty basic, you will not find supershinywords or coolfantasybackground, it's not my style... What you see is what you get !

Few words about me. Miniatures sculptor for nearly 20 years, I've worked for a lot of famous companies like Rackham, PrivateerPress, Mierce, and many others...  Today I want to create my own range, to explore my favorite themes in fantasy. 

All the minis are cast in resin by a skilled craftsman, here in France, no Chinese plastic here.

This project totally eludes me. I do not get how on earth someone as skilled as Benoit Cosse would do a project like this. I love the theme, it's fun. The cave-men take on it.  But I dont really get the idea behind it. I understand why someone would want to sculpt "ugly" in contrast to the oversexualized that goes on in the hobby, but even here the rude girls are oversexualized, half-naked, with boobs out. But what I do not understand at all is why doesnt he sculpt the "ugly" in a good way?

 

This one looks to be sculpted by a 4-years old, and not by one of the great ones in the industry. Really wierd.

The only things I like are the Rhino and the Hyena and I wouldn't even use the riders.

I like some of the ideas, like the giant Rhino.

And to me it's okay that not all tribal women are covering their boobs.

But somehow, those faces just aren't doing it for me, not bc they're meant to be ugly, they just seem unfinished (maybe they are?)

I like a couple of the figures, but for the most part, I'm not too impressed...

The problem is that the 1 or 2 i like, I don't like as figures; I'm looking at 'em as a source of bits.

Good luck to the creator, but not for me.

Oh, boy.  Yet another army of women from an entirely unfemale perspective.

I wonder how much of it is the sculpts and how much is less than stellar photography.

Some of it isn't bad (I get very tired of 'pretty orcs'), and some of it is ... unflattering. I'mma keep an eye on it; there might be some useful stuff in.

To me, it appears like Benoit Cosse is aiming to achieve an effect that looks "poor". For example, look at the sculpt with the female holding the carcass/skeleton into the air. The skull and the ribcage look amateurish. The feathers of the vulture don't look at feathers at all. Look at all the fur details on the other sculpts. Also amateurish. If he is aiming to sculpt "ugly" figures, it would look a lot better if the details are at least sculpted decently.

I kind of like em... The yellowish sculpts look pretty bad, but the group shot with them in a white material looks good. I like the Rhino and the Hyena especially. The Troll looks good too.... but they are on the expensive side for what they are... I am keeping an eye on it.. but this really doesn't tempt me at this price point.

I kind of like the rhino, but the orcs don't do anything for me.

Yeah, think I'm safely going to be able to pass on this one.

The rhino looks wonderful, but the quality of that sculpt makes many of the other figures look even poorer by comparison. I also like the riders. At least what I can see of them. They're in contextually good poses and look to be well sculpted. Can't really see their faces though. As a stand alone piece it quite nice. History is littered with primitive cultures who never wore tops, so I don't have an issue with it. These look far more savage than cheesecake. Either way, it isn't my thing.

This is... an 'almost'.

 

If the sculpting were better, I would be happier, I think. Those sculpts... just are not that good. ::(:

 

The primitive/aboriginal style is interesting - and if there were some males to go with them... they could be useful. (Yeah, I know, nekkid male figures don't sell as well - but having the females in one style, and the males in another, makes it hard to build a theme.) I would rather see a full tribe.

 

Sending it along to Megan anyway, but I will be dodging this one.

      Who Are we?
      Antediluvian Miniatures are new company producing an ever expanding range of 28mm miniatures for the war gamer, collector and role player. You can see our existing miniatures at www.antediluvianminiatures.com
      The Plan.
      We would like to add to our ever expanding range of unique and unusual figures by producing this range of Medieval Devils and Demons inspired by the freakish illustrated manuscripts of the medieval period! 
      These figures are sculpted by Andrew May ( Demons ), Ian Mountain ( Witch ), and Jo Brumby ( Terrence the Goat ). We think these will be great fun and an unusual addition for fantasy wargames, skirmish and role playing games. There are all 28mm scale, cast in metal- they will come with plastic bases supplied.

      If the campaign goes well we have some extra characters and a potential terrain feature we'll add in as stretch goals and freebies.

      More details of the pledges and locked figures are below.
      What do you get. 
      all the are figures metal cast and supplied with bases. Figures are 28mm scale.

      This modular game building system is the result of months of prototyping. Saga World Builder makes it easy for you to play the table-top games you love. 
      The system consists of a large number of double-sided modular map tiles and features hundreds of environmental objects, magic items, weapons, decorations, and equipment.

      Saga World Builder is a highly modular game-building system for creating gaming maps and environments. 
      We’ve been enjoying role playing games for many years and have developed Saga World Builder with you in mind! From gamers for gamers. All design elements are hand-painted and highly modular. Due to the game’s unique and engaging illustration style, it’s super easy to add your own ideas and designs to Saga maps! 
      Wet- and dry-erase compatible and super durable!
      Saga map tiles are wet- and dry-erase compatible, super durable, laminated on both sides, and reinforced for extra weight and durability.
      Objects printed on adhesion film
      Thanks to the magic of adhesion and electrostatic, all elements stick to the map and can easily be placed, removed, and reused again and again and again. 
      All this is included!
      Beautiful hand-painted game-building system. Dungeon System with hundreds of modular dungeon tiles. Mine System with hundreds of modular mine tiles. Hundreds of weapons, magic items, and decorative objects. Pitfalls, traps, and tricky adventure elements. Environmental objects and props. Kickstarter bonus: Inventory and neutral tiles.  Features
      Saga World Builder is: 
      Completely modular.  Hand-painted illustrations that fit every style. Our objects are printed on adhesion film, which sticks to shining surfaces 
without glue and can be easily removed. 
  Works with any kind of marker: wet, dry, permanent, and nonpermanent.  Cleans up easily and quickly so you can draw on it and erase over and over again. Can cover any size or shape of table. Let’s you create an exciting chase scene. Doesn’t slide around on the table. Allows for a wide variety of terrain, dungeon, or miniatures.  And is Affordable  Rewards 
      (We have two sizes of tiles: 6”x6" and 3"x6. We did a small typo in the description of some rewards where we wrote "All tiles are 6”x6" and 3"x3” / But all tiles are 6”x6" and 3"x6”.)

      Expansion sets for the Blood and Plunder tabletop game.  Live on Kickstarter.
       
       
      About this project
      Blood is on the horizon! The iron grip of Iberian Domination is eclipsing the 17th century Caribbean as the world races to seize its spoils. Join the emerging Dutch Republic as it battles for its place among the established European powers or defy foreign incursion as a Darien King in this expansion to Blood and Plunder, No Peace Beyond the Line.
      No Peace Beyond the Line is the first major expansion for the Blood and Plunder miniatures game. This expansion will revolve around the No Peace Beyond the Line book that will feature:
      Optional rules for playing games at a greater scale or with more than two players A campaign system Special characters that players will be able to add to units New units and factions for the existing nationalities New nationalities including the Dutch and Native Caribbeans New ships: Piragua, Fluyt and  the Galleon!  Factions for expanded nationalities such as Danes, Swedes, Prussians, and Portuguese This Kickstarter allows us to raise the funding needed to expand our product line to this scale in a short period of time as opposed to having slow, continuous releases. Firelock Games is excited to have the opportunity to continue expanding the world and timeline of Blood and Plunder in order to create a more exciting and expansive line for its player base.
