Medieval Demon Miniatures

Recommended Posts

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.

Now there's something you don't see everyday. At least not in over a century.

 

I always kind of liked the old school classical designs.

They're straight out of woodblock imagery aren't they.

 

There's also a goat and a flying witch unlocked as free stretch goals (if you pledge more than £30)

The demons are just hanging out, showing off their new back scratchers.  It is, as the beagles have known for centuries, the bunnies you need to watch out for (no, not that one):

This is the same company that successfully delivered the animated D&D based kickstarter last winter:

It was a great project that delivered minis which exceeded expectations.

I only backed for one mini, the Dungeon Master, but it was an excellent sculpt and very well cast. Especially considering it's tiny size. I'm very happy with it.

These are so badly sculpted it is incredible that they've actually reached funding. I am blown away.

I have to disagree.

I think they're well sculpted but being heavily inspired by the source material of the old wood cuttings and manuscript drawings I can see them being an acquired taste as stylistically they're a bit different from what we've come to expect from mainstream fantasy minis.

No offence, but I am flabbergasted that someone would consider this, for example, to be well sculpted. The proportions are off, the pose is unnatural (the elbows should be held close to the body and not stretched out.. is she meant to fly or stand on the ground? if the flying witch is based on the art, you can clearly see that it is nowhere near looking like that), the cloth hangs poorly and in part folds at wierd places or not at all, the face is having little of the standard human shapes.

Yes, I do agree that the sculpting could potentially be explained by the old wood cuttings and manuscript drawings, but even so they are, in my opionion, badly sculpted. But look at the manuscript drawing of the Demon Lord and then compare it to the actual sculpt. The manuscript drawing looks thin and creepy while the sculpt is having none of those proportions.

One of the reasons I'm considering this is because I like that fact that I can buy minis at under £2 a pop to use on the gaming table. Not every miniature needs to be an £10 display case masterpiece. £2 for a playing aid is fine with me.

Heheh, it's done and I pledged for it.

 

The Hell Mouth interests me, but I'll wait to see the model before adding it to my list.

For the others, I have an idea on how to use them.

 

In D&D and Pathfinder lore, demons are numerous because the different sins of a single soul gives birth to a bunch of different demons. But what if they didn't split up, and merged into the multi-faced abominations (because reasons)? Then I have a new class of demons that favor tormenting the living (why wait for the body to die to torture a soul?). Or I could have something like tieflings, but have more demon blood than mortal blood, effectively the "tainted by mortal blood" of Hell/Abyss, so they have anger issues.

Fully received after some delays in answering on my side.

 

I took the "Infernal Host" (12 demons) plus the unlocked bonuses (giant demon; demon lord; flying witch; Rocket Rutterkin; "Black Terrence" goat; imp), plus an extra for the demons with "Handgonnes".

 

22 minis altogether. All evil! ::D::devil:

      About
      Over a year ago we started looking at beginning a High-Seas Adventure D&D campaign. However, we wanted to kick it up a notch (or five).
       
      So, we began looking for a great set of 3d Dungeon tiles to help bring the adventures to life for our players. We wanted something that was customizable, beautiful to look at, and was playable terrain. We also didn't want to spend $100 per ship. We realized that customizable didn’t really exist- we had to *choose* if we wanted beauty, or a slim amount of customization. Not to mention that the costs were extreme per ship.. We couldn’t put together a fleet of different ships if we wanted to without breaking the bank.
      Being an Indy designer- Chris decided to start working on something better, and finally- after seeing friends and family reactions to the initial prototype- ShipWorks began becoming a reality.
      Shipworks is modular. What this means is that from the hull to the masts and everywhere in between- you have the freedom to design and print the sailing ship that you want. Not just another generic template, but your minds eye brought to life.
      The ships seen table time ;-)  
      Details and customization is also inside.. ShipWorks is also fully usable terrain- to scale with miniatures common to some of the oldest and greatest table top roleplaying games. Your miniatures can traverse the rigging shrouds and masts, climb ladders and stairs, and explore above or even below decks.
       
      Captain checking the rigging as a swab runs up to the wheel  
      Even our yard-arms are functional terrain- 25mm miniatures bases slide in with ease, and stay there- even when turned upside down!
       
      Upside down can be right side up- depending on perspective.  
      With ShipWorks you get to choose:
      The length of your ship.
      Adjust the width of the ship.
      Your prows appearance, and even the figurehead that adorns it!
      Add more (or less) masts and their length! No messy shaping of wood dowels (unless you’re into that). Add a crows nest or viewing platform.
      A host of customizations to change your hull. From the number of weapons ports to fight off enemies, to creature comforts like windows for passenger cabins. Even sleek flat hull panels for showing off your more merchant elite!
      How you want your sails, from classic square to sharp looking lateen triangles.  If you change your mind- change them on the fly! 
      Your stern-castle and fore-castle (or have neither Captain!)

      Project: Captain Redbeard's Pirate Dwarves
       
      About this project
      Avast me hearties! Splice the mainbrace and beat to quarters, that galleon is bilged on her anchor and ripe for the picking! Bring us alongside Gibbs. Boomer, get ready on the gun! Pete my boy, are you loaded? Hefty, Sharktooth, Deadeye, follow me! Gyaaarh! 

        This project is to fund production of a pirate dwarf crew, a set of unique miniatures forming a warband of adventuring buccaneers for skirmish gaming or a unit of mercenary fighters in a larger dwarf army. 
      They are 28mm metal miniatures, sculpted by Mark Evans, who produced all the dwarf sculpts in our previous kickstarter. 

        This time we have decided to offer only one pledge level, with all stretch goals being free additions to the set. If you want multiple sets just increase your pledge amount accordingly. 
      Pledge price includes FREE SHIPPING in the UK and discounted shipping of just £2 for anywhere else worldwide.
       If successfully funded each backer will receive one each of Captain Redbeard's crew plus any applicable stretch goals- 
      1. Cap'n Redbeard   2. Bo'sun Gibbs   3. Deadeye Dan  
      4. Hefty Hawkins      5. Slick Willie         6. Sharktooth Jack
      7. Pigwash    8. Little Pete      9. Boomer Svensson and Swivel Gun
       The Captain himself. As gnarly a swashbucking, treasure-hungry dwarf as you could ever hope to meet. He'll fight anyone and anything if there's a promise of doubloons which makes his crew a useful mercenary force to bolster any dwarf army (just don't pay him in advance).
       The captain's trusted Bo'sun, often found leading boarding parties or manning the ship when the captain takes a raiding party ashore.
       His aim is as good with his axe as with his pistol, as many an enemy has found out
       Avast behind! The crew will often mutter about hefty, but not within earshot of him. If you have a door to kick down, a bear to wrestle or a sandwich to eat, he's your man.
       The general opinion among the crew is the Willie fancies himself, with his goatee, ponytail and feather in his hat, he cares a bit too much about his appearance.
       Sharktooth is just a thorough git, a complete thug with a pair of wicked short knives that earned him his nickname. 
       Rumour has it that Pigwash was once captain of his own ship, nobody knows for sure and nobody likes to ask because of that big axe he carries around.
       The smallest of the crew, some say he's overcompensating but with his blunderbuss he can clear a deck or blow a dwarf sized hole in a city gate.
       He's got you covered, the swivel gun is small enough that the crew will often take it ashore for some extra firepower.

      Heroic Fantasy and Barbarian Conquerors of Kanahu Setting Sourcebook
       
      Autarch, the folks behind Adventure Conqueror King, have a new Kickstarter to fund an alternative version of the rules focused on "heroic fantasy" where magic is subtle and likely more dangerous, like Robert E Howard and JRR Tolkein.  Think more "secret cults of forbidden knowledge" and less "Wizard's Guild."
       
      Adventurer Conqueror King laid a mathematically accurate framework for building your character's domain (such as building a kingdom), as well as fun things like a coherent trade system, and "hijinks" for the rogueish characters.  I've been very pleased with the book, and use it to supplement my old-school games. 
       
      The Heroic Fantasy books looks like the rules, while the Barbarian Conquerors setting book is inspired by pulp worlds of Howard and Burroughs.  Science-Fantasy and secrets man was not meant to know.
