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.

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:

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.

      From DGS Games,
       
      "We will launch the Eclipse Sisterhood kickstarter campaign on the afternoon of February 14th 2017.
       
      This project will produce the six core models of the faction: leader, caster, two heroes and two followers. And as many stretches as our fans help us reach! For the Traazorites, that was four models. Let's show the Empire these fierce women can do even better!"

      About this project
      It seems like no matter how many dice you buy, you still never have enough d6s... meanwhile, your collection of unnecessary d20s keeps getting bigger. 
      Dice of Rolling are not rocket science. They’re just regular dice that come in the amounts you actually need, and they use color for more than just decoration. One simple purchase, and you’re good to go for most of the situations you’ll encounter in the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. And since each dice type is a different color, you'll always grab the right ones. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but nobody else is doing it so we're bringing it to Kickstarter. 
      This is the dice set we’ve always wanted for our table, and with your help we can bring it to tables everywhere!
        
       
        
       
      We’re keeping the rewards real simple. You can pledge to receive 1, 2, 4, or 20 sets, and each set will include the same 29 color-coded dice + microfiber dice bag.

      About this project
      Help Cold War Miniatures to launch a new range of Resin Wargame Minis for Gamers, Collectors and Painters. 
      Hawkmen by Cold War Minis Inspired by the old black and white serials but with a modern twist, these minis are an imagining of a range from a "rediscovered lost serial". 
      Adversarial Aliens, Despotic Dictators and Rampaging Robot Legions are all planned, the range launches with the Heroic Hawkmen.
      The range is scaled at "Heroic 28" (32mm) which is a standard size for current Sci-Fi and Fantasy Minis. At this size they are slightly taller than some older 28mm ranges and slightly shorter than some newer ranges but should sit well alongside both. They are also proportioned to be "fairly chunky" like traditional putty sculpted minis. 
      (Picture of other manufactures products for comparison purposes only)
      Comparison  The Hawkmen are sculpted digitally and will be produced in Resin as the lighter weight allows for more dynamic poses and makes the flying poses more stable on a stand. The minis will be supplied with plastic bases and flying stands where appropriate.
      To start with there are 10 designs available, half in flight and half on the ground with more designs, optional extras, specials and exclusives available to unlock if they are popular and the campaign progresses.
      Hawkmen in Flight  
      Grounded Hawkmen  
      Stretch Goal Preview  If the initial target is reached then as a thank you backers who pledge £30 (Pick a Wing) or more will receive an exclusive Kickstarter mini, that won't be included in the retail range. More to come later.
      KS Exclusive when funding reached Manufacture and Shipping will be from the UK and will ship worldwide. Shipping costs are currently an estimate and will be fully calculated after the KS ends as every backer could have different requirements depending on chosen options and location. It will be upfront based on the Royal Mail's Pricing (http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder) + a small packaging charge with options for regular or tracked shipping.
      A quick note on the Video
      All images and visual elements made by Cold War Minis, the soundtrack is lifted from the 1934 movie "The Evil Mind" under Creative Commons as it is now in the public domain, for anyone interested the full movie is available to view here

      New Kickstarter starting in November
       
       
      Mythic Games aims at creating and developing high quality games, combining great mechanics massively play tested and demoed in public with spectacular visuals and miniatures designed by world renowned artists.
      Monolith (click) instantly became a reference in the world of high quality miniatures board games with Conan, which raised over $3.3 million on Kickstarter.
      Monolith and Mythic Games joined forces to co-publish Mythic Battles: Pantheon, which will soon hit Kickstarter
       
      Looks like you control a God (giant sized) and its faction (human sized).
       
      Minis look nice
