    I feel that there’s little reason to deny that the primarch miniatures that Forge World has released are some of the best minis ever sculpted for Games Workshop. Unfortunately, I lost the pictures we took of the first primarch I had the opportunity to paint, but I got good pictures of this one. This is Sanguinius, one of the most powerful and loyal of primarch, despite his rather obvious mutation.

    Confrontation: Classic

    Don't forget the "Choose Cthulhu" Kickstarter campaign that got shut down for copyright reasons. After that, they decided that the best thing for their company and their backers was to abandon the print projects that they can't do anymore anyway. That allows them to focus on Confrontation. But the Confrontation royalties are being paid to a guy who works at Sans Detour, so they probably won't be forgetting to pay them like they did with Chaosium.

    Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood

    My first thought as well when I heard of this. I'm kind of surprised that they went with a title that had been used before.

    Middara: Unintentional Malum - The Complete Trilogy

    I suspect that they'll allow it, but the price will probably go up for people who wait.

    Kingdom Death White Lion

    Kingdom Death Monster starts out with four survivors 'waking up' in a strange place- and very soon a white lion attacks. As you discover bits of information, it becomes clear that he wasn't coincidentally walking by when the survivors awoke. Like- he was waiting for them to appear so that he could attack and eat them. Hence- spawn camping.

    Chibi Gloomhaven (spoilers linked)

    I'm in the middle of two campaigns right now (one meets every other Friday, and the other meets on every other Sunday)

    Chibi Gloomhaven (spoilers linked)

    The amount of sculpting on these varies a lot. I don't mind doing a lot of work on heroes or bosses, but for monster groups you usually need six or ten of them. And with the sheer number of groups, I wasn't about to sculpt the whole of any of them from scratch. - The Harrowers each have a Mr. or Ms. Bones head. Their bodies come from various bones minis. They didn't need to be Chibi minis for this, I just cut off the lower half of various robed characters and used that. - The Vermlings are made from Pathfinder Goblins (I used the cheap Wizkids ones because they have the largest heads). I mostly just painted them to look more rat-like (the texture is painted on). I did add their tails (they're just wire that I use for pinning) and added a little bit of green stuff behind their ears. - Tee ancient artillery was actually pretty straight forward. I made them from various leftover Warjack bits that I had. Some of them are guns, but some of them are shoulders that looked enough like they could be turrets. - The Inox were pretty crazy. I needed sixteen of them, so there's no way I was sculpting every one of their heads. I had horns from my bits box, though- so I sculpted one head and made a green stuff mold (from Instamold/Oyumaru) and cast the other 15 from that. I attached these to various short bodies- mostly dwarves- and added some easy to sculpt things to them like the fur pelts. The different eye shapes that they have all comes from painting (I use dark black lines, and that lets me paint outside the lines a bit).

    Chibi Gloomhaven (spoilers linked)

    So I like playing Gloomhaven, but I really don't care for standees. Since I had been making chibis for Kingdom Death and Warhammer Quest, it seemed strangely reasonable to me to 'simply' replace every standee and character mini with custom made chibi minis. Yeah, it didn't end up being all that simple, but it has been a really fun project. Let's start out with the PC classes: The Inox Brute. This was the first Chibi Gloomhaven character that I finished. I was very excited to make him. The body comes from a Cyclopes from Impact! Miniatures. The head is mostly my own sculpt- although I did have some plastic horns leftover from various GW kits. The orchid spellweaver was a really fun one to make. She started life as two separate ninjas from Ninja All Stars (head and body). I really liked sculpting all of the crystals on her. The Vermling gave me a bit of trouble. I needed something between a goblin and a Skaven, that could also fit in with the chibis I'd been making. I looked around for ones that would fit the style well, and eventually discovered that the Wiz-Kids Pathfinder Goblins were close to perfect. They just needed their ears fixed and tails attached. The human Scoundrel. I made here eyes glow to match the artwork (my wife played this character, but it definitely took her a minute to recognize that the character was, in fact, human. Later, someone pointed out to me that she's wearing a mask in the artwork. The Quartryl Tinkerer was a lot of fun. He's got a sort of steampunk look about him that really doesn't match most of Gloomhaven's technology level And here's the Savaas Cragheart. Ready to destroy all of the scenery. And, of course, there are the locked characters. I'm hiding them behind links to protect people who haven't unlocked them yet.

But there are also monsters. A lot of the monsters for Gloomhaven fit into some group that I already have for Super Dungeon (Zombies, Skeletons, Slimes, etc). For others, I found chibi miniatures that works quite well, but for many of the most distinctive ones, I built custom miniatures. None of these minis are 100% sculpted from green stuff, but very few of them don't have at least some green stuff on them.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Or possibly word has gotten around that Bones has improved in quality (with Bones 4 and Bones Black).

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    One thing to note is that Kickstarter funding patterns have changed this year. Many of the bigger Kickstarters have smaller finishing surges relative to their initial surges. That's not to say that Bones 5 won't finish higher than all previous Bones campaigns, but the medium isn't as predictable as in years past.

    Super Kingdom Death Explore!

    Thanks. That's exactly what I was going for. He has totally wrecked our party, stabbing us with stakes or impaling us on pikes, etc.

    Super Kingdom Death Explore!

    I created this mini a little while ago, but for some reason I missed showing him off. This is my chibi version of the Manhunter nemesis monster for Chibi Kingdom Death. The core mini started its life as a cowboy robot from Rail Raiders Infinite, so he's come a long way to get here. For the base, I wanted to create a chibi version of a base that I had previously made for the proper Manhunter mini.

    Confrontation: Classic

    Oh, yes. I don't dispute that they did it. I just think it was a massively bad idea, that's all. Do we know anything about how successful they were at selling those?
  14. I see this the other way around. I think Jasco is really laudable for attempting to clean up the mess the Space Goat left on the floor. Jasco doesn't have to have anything to do with the failed Evil Dead project. But they're trying to pick up the pieces for the backers and the brand. Seriously, if this game funds, they're planning to deliver to all new backers as well as backers of the original project- and I think that's really awesome. And Jasco have a strong track record and good reputation. I didn't back the first Evil Dead 2 project, but I'm definitely in favor of this game funding and delivering to all of those previous backers.

    Confrontation: Classic

    If the production models did come from Cadwallon, then that would be one extra generation removed from the masters (because Cadwallon was using production models as their masters). That's all speculation, of course, but since SD wasn't negotiating to get the masters from the people who got them from Rackham they probably just picked up the old models through Ebay and other internet sites. In that case, a lot of their 'masters' probably did come from recasters. I really don't understand why they'd be selling the real masters like that in any case. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
