Plastic multi-part fauns (male and female)

Recommended Posts

Some modifications we are working on. 

 

 

 

Added a slight deviation for the female body (one faun with a strap around shoulder, one with no strap)

Making the female head slightly more beast like (horns are a place holder for the heads).

Towards the back a rack system is being worked on to incorporate the shield in back (for the hobbyist if they wish)

Male neutral pose here is show casing how we will use a two handed grip for the falx/rhomphaia. 

 

On the female head, I am leaning towards number 2 with the facial features, but I would love to hear any feedback. Quite excited to see how this will finish :)

Those are looking really nice. Will there be enough of any one weapon type to do all in the same style? Like all spear or all bow or all sword?

Original plan was javelin throwers and archers, but it was evident people wanted warriors, bowmen and javelin throwers. What you're seeing is the body pose phase my sculptor has been working on for the past month or so. He was kind enough to start posing weapon samples next to them for me. From this we can see what the poses would look like with weapons. We are working on two main poses, a neutral standing position and a 3-1 pose.

 

Directly to your question, plan is a kit which has enough to kit 10 men with spears (5 spears standing, 5 being from the javelin throwers with spears held upward above the heads of the first rank). This way I can save space on the sprue. In addition, there will be a two handed axe and rhompaia for a special character. To round it out, we will have swords for the females and males, with a sprinkling of single handed maces/clubs/axes for whatever your needs are. There will be ten bows, 5 standing while picking arrows out of quivers, and a second rank of 5 with notched bows (picture includes it above). Javelin throwers will mimic this style a tad, with first rank at throw, with a second rank at the ready with javelin in hand. 

 

Shields are going to be attachable, which means you have the option now of using them, or not. In back we are finding a way to see how the shield will line up on the rack.   

 

Weapon phase will give you a better look on the poses. 

 

Ill keep posting to show you guys what I mean. In the mean time I am going to try to see how I can fix the shofar pose.

In the middle of adjusting the 4-1 female pose, some pictures fixed include the javelin. Sword and bow on left need some tweaking.

The 3-1 we keep going on about has evolved for both the male and female to focus on a 4-1 idea. The torso allows the player to change arms and draw the bow upward, or to act as the arrows are being drawn. Some adjustments in the straps allow the models arm to align better.

Gotta say, I'd be far more interested in these if any of them had facial expressions. Seems like beastmen that are known to be passionate and fierce should have some expression.

These are place holder heads. I get to mess around with those once the head phase rolls in. You'll notice most of the heads are one or the other if male or female. 

 

This is a starting point we can get worked on.

These look good. Any chance of Doing a "just female" box and a "just Male" box?

 

 

Separating the sprues is easy enough, but to make a mold for each set would prove tricky on the resource front. There is a good chance I can offer an ala carte option, or an upgrade pack to address a full male or full female set. 

 

For anyone who wants to take a peak at a metal version of our original concept faun, we have a small batch for sale at https://rgdgaming.com/products/faun-tracker . A painted version of it is underway and won't be too long before I can get you some pics.

Perhaps it would be possible to make each frame in such a way that it can easily be divided in half - rather than trying to create two completely separate molds.

That was the plan. Segregating males and females to their own connected sprue is cheaper than making a mold for each. 

 

Here is a sneak preview of a faun model in work

      Swarming out from several enormous dimensional Rifts, a horde of giant invaders, so different in shapes and sizes that they couldn’t belong to the same species, had apparently decided the time had come to bring Humankind to extinction. They got damn close to it too! Two years went by after the first invasion, years in which two thirds of the Earth’s population was wiped out. In order to survive, every single nation left aside any ideal of independence and united under the flag of the Earth Federation, dividing cities into Metropoleis and Refuges and attempting any possible strategy to stay alive…
       
      War Titans: Invaders Must Die, actually tells us a story deeply rooted in a distant period preceding the birth of our Sun, thus revolutionizing the Darwinian concept of human evolution. Our tale makes us discover the Shik’har, a magnificent race of space warriors. For an incredibly long time, the Shik’hars have fought triumphantly against any single species, creature concealing the seeds of evil, and has banished them one by one inside inaccessible dimensional prisons.

      About this project
      Hello,
      We are so excited and honored that you are taking the time to consider our project. Our tabletop journey has brought us so much joy and satisfaction to be able to play with friends and family. The quality of the product that our terrain engineers have developed is truly a reward all its own. That being said, we would like to continue as a team to provide versatile, durable, and affordable terrain to everyone who might be interested in it. 
      We created our terrain with the Game Master in mind. It is our mission to provide a suite of tools that could be provided that empower off-the-rails playability. We look forward to all of the community input so that we can tailor our efforts to bring to life the answers to the problems that we, as GMs, face throughout the multiverses.
      With your help, we hope to become an additional tool that can be wielded in the moment it is needed most. 
       
      1 Set Our basic set comes with the following: 
      6- 4x4 inch tile floors 8- 4 inch walls 4- 2 inch walls 6- 1 inch walls 2- 1 inch doors The floor tiles and walls are separated so that the GM can manipulate the field as they see fit. There is no prep time needed because the walls can be dropped in place immediately and configured in any conceivable fashion. Our walls lock together with magic so that they are stable without needing to be connected to the floor tiles.
      We designed the walls with playability in mind so that everyone at the table can still have a good view of the dungeon without needing to stand up and peer in. Standard 28mm miniatures are easily visible, and even paper tokens can be seen without requiring additional effort. 
      By using the standard grid as a basis, we wanted to make sure that our product would enhance your existing setup, not become a replacement.
       *Add-on purchases are available for backers who purchase two sets or more.
       Our Forest Pack comes with two types of trees. We designed the trunks so that the leaves could be removed for those players or enemies who enjoy scaling the trees to hide or fire from a better vantage point. The $25 purchase comes with two trees, each of our small and large platform trunks.
      It is our great pleasure to offer our Caravel Add-on. This vessel connects with the same magic as our walls. The ship is stackable so multiple levels can be purchased if desired. The masts, sail yards, and crows nest are designed so that dramatic swashbuckling action can take place above the vessel itself. The masts can be removed if needed and can be replaced with the mast slot cover, in the event that the vessel is driven by oars or some other means.
      The ship is made up of three locking pieces: prow, aft and midship. The prow and aft can be connected to form smaller vessels and additional middle sections can be combined to create mighty warships or trading vessels. 
      The undercarriage of the ship has four pillar slots that can be used to prop a ship up giving the GM the ability to place lurking sea creatures underneath. This also enables the GM to utilize the ship as an airship if desired, flying above the battlefield and exploring the skies.
      The $149 purchase comes with the prow, the aft, and the midship. It also comes with three masts, three mast hole covers and one crow's nest.
      Our $99 Galley Add-on comes with the prow, the aft, and the midship. It also comes with three mast hole covers.
      The $22 Support Pillars Add-on comes with 11- 3 inch tall support pillars that can be used to raise your ship off the ground or can be used as flying platforms to keep track of PCs and enemies in the chaos of battle.

      Summon Your Power!  
      Dawn of the Archmage is a small unit (miniatures) skirmish game for 2 to 4 players. Each mage will represent a school of magic, summoning powerful monsters to the battlefield. Pitting their fearsome creatures in gladiatorial battle, one mage will reign victorious, ascending to the title of Archmage.  
      Do you have the strength and strategy to defeat your enemies? Will you become the Archmage?    
       
       
       PLAY Dawn of the Archmage continues the rich fantasy world of Archmage Origins. Once the rulers of Sorcado, mages have fallen from power. Challengers arrive from every corner of the land. Knighted Paladins, land-hungry Lords... all seek to dethrone the mages. But mages don't go down easily. It's time to fight back!   
      Each mage uses summoning powers to bring new and dangerous creatures to the battlefield. Expending massive mystical energy, their battle grows in frenetic power as monstrous beasts fight for the mages who control them, seeking to destroy all challengers in a magic-fueled frenzy. 
      Mages of Sorcado Ultimate power hangs in the balance as ferocious monsters shake the earth with battle-lust.
      In addition to summoning fearsome creatures to fight, mages posses a selection of powerful spells. With a single word, the battle can shift. Manipulating odds, controlling movement, and countering rival's spells, the mage's strategy will determine the supreme ruler of Sorcado. 
      The battle rages everywhere. Modular map tiles allow the mages to customize the battle area. Large, sprawling battlefields or close, confined ones... the fight is different every time. Will it be the Arena? The Forest? The Ruins? Or even Underground?

      About this project
           In what we hope is our first set of TerraScapes, we present to you a natural Caves & Grottos core set. With the full range of 10 nonlinear modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking endeavors! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls. 
      TerraScapes on TerraTiles! A match made in heaven! TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos strives to simulate these realities for optimal immersion. To maximize the possibilities every tile is double sided! This means you get twice the tiles for half the material costs! Each tile is designed kind of like a table where instead of legs, you have stalactites and large rocks. When they are stacked up, this gives your layout real depth and introduces a whole new dimension for increased strategical encounters. Whether it's for your big boss battle, wargame or random encounter, everything you'll need for an endless tactical cavern layout comes with our core set of Caves & Grottos!
      What's in the Core Set?  The Core Set of TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos will contain 9, premium double-sided durable resin 3D tiles and includes 1 exclusive Kickstarter Campaign tile. This is everything you'll need to bring to life any dynamic cavern scenario that you can dream up! We have split and organized the Core Set into 3 subsets of 3 tiles each. You can purchase any of these Packs or the Exclusive Kickstarter Campaign Tile as Add-ons during this campaign!
       
      Core Pack:A  
      Core Pack:B  
      Core Pack:C  
      Exclusive Kickstarter Tile:1!  
      Why pledge? How about because these are super schweet man...  I've got a lot, and I mean A LOT of stretch goals in mind.  Most importantly there is a wisdom in crowds.  I can't wait to hear your Ideas for this Project too!  This platform for releasing a product is successful because of the Backers who contribute to its development.  I really want to develop this Project with you.  I'm certain that together, we can make TerraScapes a game night treat!
      "So What makes TerraScapes so special?"
      Quick Setup: These tiles are not like their linear cousins. Placing down just 1 tile covers the same area as 4 to 8 terrain pieces from other 3d terrain makers. You can create an awesome, natural looking layout in under a minute! You can literally throw them down and get right back to the game. There is a near infinite amount of possibilities. Modular Variety: Any part of any side of any tile can be placed next to or on top of any other tile. Be creative!  They are also double sided! I guess that gives them twice the infinite variety then! HA! Realism: No other 3D terrain can match TerraScapes ability to create the most realistic looking Caves & Grottos. If you have ever ventured outside, you know that the natural world is not linear. This is the beauty inherent in a nonlinear terrain system! It's non uniform but structured design simulates a natural cave effortlessly.  I can honestly say, even I didn't think they were going to work as well as they do.  I'm floored every time I design another completely different layout than the one before. Scale Compatibility: The tile designs have been optimized for 15mm, 25mm, 28mm and even 32mm miniatures!  Terrain Compatibility: Already own a fine cavern set or terrain set? Great! These tiles will enhance ANY other terrain set whether 2D or 3D that you may have already invested in!  There is no guarantee that TerraScapes will be compatible with any 4D or higher dimensional terrain. Game Compatibility: Whether fantasy, sci-fi, western or modern, you may find yourself spelunking and adventuring your way through the deep!  For Enthusiasts AND Hobbyists: We are offering 2 finished options for your set of TerraScapes only during the Kickstarter! The unpainted set is fresh from the mould to your hobby desk. They are ready for prep, primer and paint and of course any other accoutrements. The painted set comes prepped, primed, professionally painted and sealed by TerraScape's own design studio, MGStudio!  i.e.  My monkeys and Me! Durability: Made with 100% Dorkenite (a.k.a very sturdy and hard resin).  I have thoroughly tested the material by throwing my first prototype into my hardwood table in a fit of nerd rage!  Not a stalagmite was injured during this test!   100% American Made! This wonderful product is being produced by gamers just like you. It gives us great pleasure to contribute to your games and enhance the stories being told around your tabletop!  I am both proud and honored to announce that Effin Cool Minis will be producing TerraScapes.  I am also happy to announce that their studio is less than a 2 hour drive from mine!  Moving from production to fulfillment won't involve any overseas partners, boats, shipping containers, or customs.  Scale Modelling made easy! The caverns that you'll discover with Caves & Grottos practically build themselves.  Some of the most interesting caverns I've seen made with TerraScapes were constructed by my 10 year old son.   Shipping Information:
      All Domestic and International shipping rates apply!  I will be using a 3rd party Pledge Manager to account for all shipping charges!  Here is a rough estimate for what to expect when shipping a Complete Core set.
      USA $20, Australia $68, Brazil $61, Canada $53, China $69, Japan $64, Mexico $55, Russia $68, UK $69, EU $58
