IIRC, Fenris Games was the sculptor for the first KS, but not the second. Richard Luong (sp) left CW. 

I thought Fenris did the second one too. They sell resin copies of the minis from OS2 on their site.

 

Speaking of the minis, the Opener cultist is getting a ton of backlash for being sexualized (well, a very loud minority - primarily two people).

Hey, you can't have enough strippers in firefighter outfits.

 

At least for the HPL stories, descriptions of monsters, cultists, etc. were vague and often non-existent, with most entities only mentioned in passing. On top of this, many mythos dieties were worshiped by very different cultist groups, suggesting that you would either need multiple sculpts for a faction's cultists, or that most cults would be transient, anyway, so most canon cults (not to mention possibly even the human race) would have been gone or wiped out by the time Cthulhu Wars starts. I read that Sandy Petersen discusses the concept art with the artist, and, as one of the creators of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, so I guess his contribution to the mythos is as legitimate as any other mythos story writer. AFAIK, CW is a post-apoc game, and there *are* post-apoc Cthulhu stories and game material, such as the Yellow Dawn RPG, that has been published, but they're obviously not considered canon by mythos readers.

I am headed to a local Con tomorrow and Sunday. Going to get in at least two games of Cthulhu Wars and going to make at least one of them be the Shaggai map. Should be fun!

CthulhuWars.com directed to the preview page before they took it down to edit stuff. I think it should redirect there again tomorrow.

I ran a demo game on the playtest Shaggai map last night with the new Cthulhu Faction updates. I love this map!

      About this project
      This is a campaign to fund the launch of a set of 28mm Shambling Mound models for RPG and tabletop games. I have sculpted two adult Shamblers and a young Shambler. Initially the two adults will be offered for the campaign.
      If we are able to hit the £1000 stretch goal for the campaign it will unlock the Young Shambler miniature.
      If unlocked this figure will be added FREE to all backers.
      This is a World Wide campaign with the postage as follows:
      United Kingdom 4GBP, Europe 5GBP and Rest of the World 6GBP.
      Campaign Rewards.
      There are 3 reward levels.
      Supporter. If you would like to back the campaign without receiving any of the rewards you can use this pledge level.
      Lone Shambler! Choose this pledge if you would like one of the two Shambling Mould models. Choose from either SM 1: Shambler Walking or SM 2: Shambler Attacking.
      Double Trouble! Choose this pledge level if you would like both SM 1 and SM 2 Shambling Mound sculpts.
      The Models.
      The Shambling Mound models will be cast in high quality grey resin. They have been designed to fit on either a 40mm square or round base.
       
       SM 2: Shambler Attacking is a two part model and will need assembly. Use superglue to attach seperate arm.
      Stretch goal!
      We start the campaign with this initial stretch goal to aim for. If we get to the goal of £1000 the the Young Shambler will be unlocked and added FREE to all pledges. Additional Young Shambler models can be added for £2.

      So question about two of the figures from the Pretty Deadly group from the Bones III core set. 
      #256 on core set picture (part number 77488) Skara, Female Skoli
      #258 on core set picture (part number 77490) Mara Frostblade, Antipaladin
       
      So on the core set picture, Skara seems to be holding a halberd(?) pointing down and her sword sheathed, but the mini I have, she is holding the halberd up and her sword in her opposite hand.
       
      and on Mara, the shield is the same more or less, but she has just a regular/short sword, not the bigger (possibly falchion?) weapon as in the picture.
       
      Did these two figures have a last minute change after the conceptual artwork was done?
       
      *****my crazy internet:( can a moderator please delete this duplicate post***** Sorry. Nothing to see here:)

      Long time lurker, second time poster, first time upload.
       
      Here is the Frost Giant Queen from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter for your consideration. I was unable to participate in the Bones 3 Kickstarter as I came upon these Bones figures late in the game. However, the participants who were able placed their unwanted miniatures up on eBay, so I took advantage of opportunity when presented. I focused on Color Theory and Texture on this piece as she provided a very large palette to paint upon. These Giants provided me practice in sketching too, which makes the entire line appealing to me.

      Side note: Gratitude to those who did place these minis up on eBay without jacking up the prices. I was able to purchase the both Frost Giant Royalty around cost of what Reaper will sell them at Retail. This certainly displays an ethos in the Reaper community that makes this community stand out among others. Further, having lurked for awhile: the community here is quite kind and helpful. This is a good community of miniature painters.

      I like the Bones miniature range. The detail on this miniature was very close to what I expect from the metal range, and I will purchase more of the Bones range in the future. I am looking forward to the resculpt of Vanya, the Fire Giant Princess, and her new size to match the Fire Giants in D&D. The attire of this miniature is akin to the Viking attire of old, and I found my SCA ventures to assist me in painting this Viking Apron and embellishments. The sculptor did an outstanding job and I look forward to more of their work.

      The FAQs were an asset that made my first foray into Bones an easier one. I had difficulty with flash lines until I picked up some diamond files, which handled them quite well without marring detail like my serrated files. The bent pieces were fixed with some boiling water and cold water quite easily. The pieces fit together like a glove, though I admit I still pinned them. (My OCD was tingling.) I did use Krylon as Primer, and the tackiness disappeared after the first coat of paint. She was sealed only with Krylon Dull Cote and exhibits no tackiness. She has been handled and there is no rubbing off of paint.

      I like how her base was round, though I am ignorant of what would be an appropriate Reaper base to place this inside of. (I currently have the King on a GW Dreadnought base, and I do not like it. If anyone reads this and has a recommendation, I surely would appreciate it.)

      This Bones line of miniatures has proven to me to be a Good Idea and one I will support. I am already purchasing more of the Bones 2 line for my D&D and Oldhammer alternatives, and I admit excitement at the new of Bones 4. Based on the quality of these miniatures: you will have an additional participant. Please keep up the outstanding quality and amazing work.

      I hope you enjoy my efforts. C&C is always appreciated: it is the only way an Artist can improve.

      May your blends be smooth.
      Peace and blessings.
