A Mino Corpse + Want a Free Matriarch's Table? . 10 Oct

 
Get a Free Matriarch's Table!

Time for something a little different! :D
Alexei has sculpted this rather gruesome looking Matriarch's Table. Upon which the soon-to-be-revealed matriarch will prepare her victims ;)
Also useful for chaos, orcs, undead and other evil races - actually, it is quite a functional table whatever race you are - well... as long as you plan on chopping up corpses :P

And you can get it added FREE to your pledge :)

At this midpoint in the campaign, it may be smart if we paid Google to place some adverts to spread the news of this awesome KS and all these great Minotaurs :D, or perhaps we could pay Facebook for placed adverts, or maybe pay some hobby sites to place some big banners on their pages? ...

Or we can instead, use that advert-money to produce and cast another great model and give it away free, to the people who matter - You, our great backers! - for helping spread the word!

If you would like a FREE Matriarch's table added to your pledge, just help us advertise the campaign by posting a link to the KS ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1207385459/twisting-catacombs-the-minotaur-horde ) and spreading the word in a blog, relevant online forum topic or online community group where other people would like to hear about some great Minotaurs :D

 

Then Post a Comment below, with a Link to where you shared it. From us all; thank you again for your great support!

So, it Seems They are Not Invincible!

It takes a lot of killing, but you can actually down a Minotaur :P

Coming up on the stretch goals in another useful sculpt of a minotaur corpse :D Again a very raw Work in Progress sculpt  but it should give you an idea of the direction we are going in ;)

 Great for dioramas or marking dead minotaurs on battlefields or in RPGs (these guy's corpses are going to provide some cover! ;) )

This one may be a stretch goal for a few goals in the future, as we have some more alive character minotaurs which we will perhaps want to slip in before :P

Until tomorrow, Long live the Herd! !,,!,

 

 

 

(Since this is a suitable online forum, and we're talking about the project here I guess this should count for us all, but why not spread the word elsewhere too, for the glory of the Herd)

Minotaurs, Riding Warbeasts?

Oh yes, we have indeed listened to all your suggestions about Mounted Minotaurs. Now, we are pleased to show the first Work In Progress of the Minotaur Raider! :D
Again, bear in mind this is at a very raw semi completed stage, and he is due to evolve like the others with more details before he is finished. I hope you like the direction Alexei is taking him in! ;)

 Don't face it's charge head-on! :P

 Tough armoured mounts, One-Horns are one of the only creatures in the old world able to carry a Minotaur into battle.

 With the rider standing over 100mm tall, this is certainly an imposing character piece :D


Scale Comparison

It's always useful to pin down sizes, so here we have the lineup of the entire crew ;) Click the link above and expand the image to see a larger version.

A note with bases, the core minotaurs fit on the 50mm round bases (provided) but also snugly on 40mm square bases. The General, Matriarch and the Raider will have larger custom bases provided :)

 Tomorrow we are in the last 24 hours :D Thank you again to everyone who has supported us here, to help bring the race of minotaurs a much needed update! :D

      The stage has been set, now the rest of the players can begin to emerge...
      The Cerberus Team are delighted to introduce a new range of richly designed and highly detailed characters. Following the success of our first Kickstarter, we would like to welcome you to join us on a new adventure.
      Our second wave of miniatures delves deeper into our storyline, continuing on from the models from our original cast. Mortals’ Reckoning sees the action of one man, Lazarus, start a chain of events that puts the mortals back in charge of their own fates.
      The characters below are linked to two of our main villains, The Kyrios and The Slaver. But rest assured each new personality is a power house in their own right...
      Thrall - The Guardian
      Thrall - The Guardian Korvina - The Nefarious Domino
      Korvina -The Nefarious Domino  Zilla- Battle Queen of the Condemned Host
      Zilla - Battle Queen of the Condemned Host Raktagar - The Fire Forged Champion
      Raktagar - The Fire Forged Champion Scales
      Our range is 32mm as before, but our bigger characters are larger than life towering over and intimidating all.

      What is the DMB Game Tile System
      The DMB Game Tile System is a Modular system that allows you to build anything from single encounters to sprawling tabletop scenes. The system is designed to be used for any game you want to play from Dungeons & Dragons to Frostgrave, Warhammer and beyond.   The Tiles are Fully Modular, with the walls and floor separate from each other so you can create any layout you want to. They are available hand painted, finished, and felted by our studio painters or if you prefer they are available unpainted as well.
      2x2 Floor Tile and 4 Block Wall Tile. All of our Tiles are 1/2 of an inch thick, making them strong, durable and compatible with other major tile systems already out there. 
      Each individual square is 1 inch x 1 inch making a standard 2x2 tile 2 inches square and a crossroads 6 inches x 6inches.
      The walls are 1.5 inches tall, and one row of bricks is the same thickness as the floor tile, which gives stability and uniformity across the range.
      Here is an example of the type of layouts you can create with one of our Core Sets.
      This layout can be made from a Core Set and is available as a room set as well, the Large Entry Room Set. What is the Kickstarter for?
      5 Years ago we started making 3D Dungeon Tiles. We got ourselves some of the Hirst arts moulds (yes we are fully licensed by Bruce to use his Catlemolds ) and created some masters then we made our very first silicone mould and poured our first Cracked Flagstone 2x2 floor tile.
      Since then we have released just under 900 different tiles in one form or another, in different finishes and different sizes. 
      We have always stuck to using the original resin infused plaster that we started with, that is until now!  
      We have already transferred our most popular set, the Cracked Flagstone, and Gothic Wall Dungeon Set, to make sure its possible, but we have lots more we want to do. 
      This is what the bare resin pieces look like, and how the tiles will look if an unpainted option is chosen. Now we want to transfer the entire range of 900 tiles into Resin!
      We have decided to move to Resin for a few reasons but the main ones are:
      Durability - Plaster is great but it's fragile. You can throw the resin tiles in your bag and carry them to your game session or club night without chipping or breaking them. Weight - Plaster is heavy... Resin Less so... Detail - The resin picks up a lot more detail than the paster, cracks are clearer and surface detail is sharper. We are also able to cast thinner smaller items, like plates, small jugs, and mugs, graveyard fences and iron grates, things that disintegrate if cast in plaster. Durability - This is really important if you are as clumsy as I am... Drop a plaster piece from a table to the floor and its likely to chip or even shatter. The Resin pieces can be run over by a car and survive. Customisation - The plaster tiles cant be customised with magnets or pinned items in the same way that the Resin can, and someone mentioned LED lights to me as well.. which is now possible with Resin, as it can be drilled and filled, unlike the Plaster which just explodes... Paint & Finish improvements - The resin takes paint better than the plaster, which has a tendency to absorb the moisture, and give a chalky spotty finish. The resin paints up beautifully and holds the paint, and varnish perfectly. and finally Durability - I think you probably get the point by now... We have a more detailed explanation about why we are changing from Plaster to Resin a bit further down, but we wanted to get straight into the nitty gritty of whats on offer and what you can get.
      There will also be an FAQ at the bottom of the page that we have popped a few of the questions we think we will get asked the most, but we will be expanding it as the campaign rolls on. So without further ado here is what you can get if you back the DMB Game Tile System.

      Hi, Im Paul McCarthy and I run Macca's Miniatures.
      Ive been sculpting miniatures for some time now and I would really love to be able to bring my creations to your table top games.

      Taking the leap from sculptor to producer is a big one for us, we have teamed up with a caster and gotten all our prices worked out, but now we need to get the miniatures funded.

      We need £100 to pay for the moulding costs to produce these amazing miniatures in metal. 
      The Evil Party £18  Weve given a bit of thought to this and decided that we would also offer the sculpts individually as well. So if you wanted to add one to your pledge then just increase the amount by £5. When we send the surveys we will ask you which one you want.
      The Drow £5 The Ratman Mage £5 Dragon Knight £5 Hag £5
