Redbox Games: Warbands of the Cold North V

Does anybody have a scale picture of one of Tre's dwarves next to an equivalent one from another manufacturer?

 

I absolutely adore his dwarf sculpts, but I remember them seeming very small, by current standards. (I may be mistaken)

I found this one after searching Google for a bit:

Tre's Sculpts are, if memory serves, true 28mm. They are a bit smaller than the Standard Reaper fig. I love them though. So much amazing detail.

Well, thanks to someone posting a picture of one of these lady dwarves in the bones thread, I pledged for this. Just a little pledge, but still. Thanks, you guys!

I love the female dwarves in this they look impressively dwarven, by which I mean everything looks stately, well made and functional, No excessive cleavage, good poses, useful armor or robes, and ALVAHILDR THE WHITE may just be the best looking Dwarf wearing robes I have ever seen and is the best looking Dwarf mini I can think of.

might need the female with the bird on the staff.. but shipping for one mini is the same as the price of the mini.. might need to wait until Tre has more stuff I want

The surveys have gone out on this. 

Yep.  filled mine out last weekend. 

 

Note:  the last update said that a couple figures got left off of the checklist.  You can add them in the comment section (which I did for three of them).

Received my figures yesterday!  Quick initial look show that they are great; what I have come to expect from Tre and red Box games.

 

Also, for those not on FB; Tre is moving house so there will be a delay in any new store orders.

I got my figures today, they look great. I was going to use them for my Warlord army, but they are the smaller scale and look too small. I'll probably use them anyway, since they are great figures.

      About this project
       
       
      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      3D Render of the Lannister Guards. 2 copies of this unit are included in the Starter Set!  
      Combat Unit cards  
      Attachments
      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      03880: Phineas Greybone, Necromancer sculpted by Tre Manor
       
      Overall I'm really happy with how the light effects worked out.  This was a really difficult miniature to photograph.  The main challenges painting him were the glowing skull and the very irregular base.  I tired to make the skull stand out by making very deep purple shadows around it.  I used red, orange and white glazes and appear to glow, but without making it look too orange.  Making the base look dark enough was very difficult because it has a very irregular surface and every jagged edge catches the real light and makes it look brighter than I want it to in comparison to the shadow areas on the main figure.  In future for a project of this type, I would use a smoother style of base so I have more control over the shadows and lighting like on the main figure. 
       
      Comments and criticism are welcome.
