Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Islanders
Lidless Eye posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingEven though the Isle of Dread game I had been running died a premature death this summer, it's never too early to paint minis for its return, right? The group: Jaatu, a Reaper Miniatures piece I've had in progress since release in 2003, apparetnly. It's good to finally wrap up a mini after 13 years... A Tribal Champion (possibly from Chronopia, I got him with a broken weapon from a trade) And a group of Menehune, from Paymaster Games "Going Native" series: I tried to give the Menehune some traditional tattoos, then kind of gave up. I'm definitely getting a Micron marker before I try to do any tattoowork again.
Completed Going Native: New World Monsters
Paymaster Games posted a topic in Kickstarter<<<MOD>>> Edited to add link to the kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2139148164/going-native-new-world-monsters Going Native: New World Monsters - New Kickstarter Campaign that will launch 2/1/15 and will last until 3/8/15 Monster size chart https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/107285147/Spirit%20Beast%20Designs/Spirit%20Beast%20Scale%20Chart.pdf Throughout the folklore of the native peoples around the world, there is always something that roams beyond what is known and safe. Be it a shadow in the mists, a form in the tree line or a shape in the night the mind creates monsters and creatures to explain them. These explanations lead to stories, stories lead to songs and songs become legends. These monsters of legend take on the shape of the fears of the people that tell the stories. The Greco-Romans tell stories of misshaped cannibalistic demigods, the people of northern Europe have sagas of giants that live in the ice and dwarfs that live in the mountains and in the Far East there are tails of club wielding demons and dragons that swim through the air like a fish moves through water. The native cultures of the Americas and the islands of the Pacific also have these monsters that have been formed by fear, but with few gods, creatures of hope and courage took shape to bring balance to the world. In the realms of games and models, the monsters and spirits of Europe, Egypt, and the growing popularity of Asian Culture has led to these subjects being well covered by several model companies. Paymaster Games is addressing the lack of Native American and Polynesian models on the market place with our Going Native line of models and games, this includes the spirits and monsters of their myths and legends. About the Project The Spirit Beasts for the Going Native line of models are gaming miniatures set in the 28mm scale. These models will be cast in either white metal and/or high quality resin (depending on the model) by the brilliant casters at Valiant Enterprises Limited. All of the models will be supplied with a new style plastic base that will be appropriate for the size of the model â€“ 30mm base for small models, 40mm base for medium models and 50mm base for the largest models. 25% Discount off Retail Price Since many of the models featured in this Kickstarter Campaign already have pre-production models (Greens) and/ or molds, Paymaster Games can offer a fair discount to all of the products we are bringing to this campaign. Free limited edition Ai Apaec the Decapitator model At certain pledge levels, Paymaster Games is offering the mad god of the Moche people, Ai Apaec the Decapitator, as a free Kickstarter Exclusive model to certain pledge levels. Ai Apaec is a large sized model and is currently being sculpted by the talented Leandro Ventic. Since the pledge levels with the free Ai Apaec will be limited, we will offer the Decapitator as an add-on once the campaign reaches $8,000. The Models The following models will be offered as part of this Kickstarter Campaign. The prices are listed next to the model or kit. Small Models â€“ Deer Woman - $5 Nagual - $5 Monster Hunter - $5 Medium Models â€“ Ahuizotl Otter - $10 Moâ€™o, Guardian Gecko - $10 Malku Condor Spirit - $15 Capelobo - $10 Large Models â€“ Uktena the Great Horned Serpent - $25 Ahklut the Orca Wolf - $20 Sasquatch - $20 Piasa Bird - $35 Since there are a number of monsters in this campaign, I think it would be more than fair to offer a Dungeon crawl team made up on some of the models in the Going Native line. All of these models together would normally retail for $38, for this Campaign this Dungeon Crawl team will cost $30. Here is your team. â€“ Tank â€“ Tlacateccatl, Aztec War chief â€“ Paladin DPS â€“ Nagual â€“ Spell Caster DPS â€“ Monster Hunter â€“ Hunter/ranger A yet to be announced hunter pet. DPS â€“ Nacom, Mayan War chief - Warrior Heal â€“ Kallawaya Doctor â€“ Priest
Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Dreadites
Lidless Eye posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI found myself lacking native islander types for my ongoing Isle of Dread game, so I had to improvise a bit. I tried to pull together a bunch of pieces that could work for encounters with the locals. Grundor was the one I had already tried to give a different spin to, with an African theme and a lionskin cloak. I figured I had enough Nordic Viking/Berserker types and could use him for something else, having gotten him with the second Kickstarter. The rest were pulled from varying bins. First, the Reaper minis:
Well since it's a day of the week there's another new mini based skirmish game KS http://www.kickstart...arpath?ref=live Based on groups from the Americas & Pacific these could be the minis (Metal for those who care like you Buglips) you have been looking for The core rule book includes one War Party from each region: Pacific Northwest Tribes from the North, Woodland Tribes from the East, the Aztec Triple Alliance from Mesoamerica, the Inca Empire from the South, and the Hawaiian Koa from the Pacific. First up is an Aztec Officer A wereshark spirit beast from the pacific and a shapeshifting Mayan Shaman (Nagul) A full starter kit is around 15 minis, an example shown is for the pacific northwest 15 figures above, and a LE figure and a print for $50 ($65 international) or if you want the rules too $70 ($85) probaby not one for me being broke
Question from Paymaster Games
Paymaster Games posted a topic in KickstarterHello guys, I have a question that needs to be fleshed out a bit. My fantastic wife is putting together a skirmish style model based board game, that she would like to put up on Kickstarter. This game is intended for begining model gamers and kids (which we more then a few). This game is intended to intoduce people to easy to play mechanic that get harder as the player becomes more skilled. The models are intended to be easy to paint and base, so that new gamers and kids can learn the skills needed to presue the gamer hobby. I want to help her with this project, i have allot of contacts in the industry (artist, sculpters, casters and others) that will make this project easy to put out. But here is the problem it is looking that this project around the same time I am going to set up my own all model Going Native Kickstarter. I was wondering how you guys would feel if I were to help my wife with her project and still did my own KS Campaign? Oh here is her concept - It is capture the flag kind of game, where small candy shaped "slimes" steal a cake or pie from the other team and return it to their starting zone. We are planning spawn points that allow dead slimes to return to the game (like video games). Here is some concept art for the project
