https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/harlequin-classic-shadow-elves/x/10803452#/ EOE is proud to presents a Harlequin Miniatures Production - Classic Oldhammer Shadow Elves including Heroes, Assassins, Enchanters, Crossbowpersons, Siege Engines and scary Raptor Riders! Great Designs for the discerning Collector and Roleplayer. These Shadow Elves will bring terror to all that face them in Battle, be they namby-pamby Humans, goody two shoed Elves or the weakling Dwarves. These fantastic Miniatures, originally released in 1990’s, are being remoulded to cast in lead-free pewter by the skillful (ish) hands of John Olsen and his wonderful staff. Please peruse the figures below... With harsh features and a reputation to match Shadow Elves are a particularly nasty race who believe that they are the only true Elves. They do not see themselves as nasty or evil, their view is simply that it is the other races which have strayed from the correct path. A popular Shadow Elf saying which succinctly explains their philosophy is: “Those who allow others to pass will soon be left behind”. Suffice it to say that the Shadow Elves are continually pushing forward. Shadow Elves despise humans and their ways and feel that the other Elven races are far too Human in their outlook, at times ignoring their Elven Heritage. (This is not true, in any sense of the word, but that doesn't stop the Shadow Elf from believing it). It is rumored that they cut the tips off the ears of Elves that they capture, “humanizing” their appearance to match their actions, but this is believed to be apocryphal. While it is true that there are subtle and not-so-subtle color variations in the skin tones of every race, there are none so stark as the difference between the Shadow Elves of the south and those who live in the northern regions. Southern clans have deep-red skin the color of molten lava and those of the North have blue skin and often have dark blue or purple hair. There is no clear reason for this Regional difference but it is believed to date back to the time of “The Time of the Seven Trials” during the First Age. No records exist which details what the Seven Trials were or how they could have changed them in this fashion, but cave drawings and pictographs deep in the Indegahn cave system, as yet undeciphered, may hold the key.
Here is a Black Tree sculpt from their remarkably extensive and comprehensive Doctor Who line. This was DW420, Professor Kettlewell, but I've repurposed him as a mathematical genius visiting Miskatonic from Howard University. I love the hair. Bonus points if you recognize the equations! He looks like he cares for his abstruse and rarefied mathematical theorems, his coffee, and jaunty bow ties, and that's about it. The shabby suit and body language really help sell the character. Brainstein here is one of my favorites.
Arr... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/656177818/pirates-of-treasure-island About DEAD MAN'S CHEST Squire Olsen, Dr. Edwards, and the rest of the EOE gentlemen having asked me to help promote the whole particulars about this Treasure Island Kickstarter, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the Casting Room, and that, only because there is still castings not yet purchased, I take up my pen in the hope of being paid by John in the year of grace 2018, and go back to the time when John first presented his plan for this Kickstarter and the stained old Salesman with the sabre cut first took up his lodging in the EOE Office. I remember him looking over his desk and whistling to himself, then breaking out in that old Casting Room Pirate Song: “Fifteen men of a dead man's chest, Yo ho ho and a Pirate Kickstarter, Drink and the devil had done for the rest, Yo ho ho and a Pirate Kickstarter” The first 4 sets include all the named Characters from the book. THE TOUGHEST OLD SALTS The 5th Set includes the Characters in the book that were not named. I have taken the liberty of calling them The Toughest Old Salts. "We got together in a few days a company of the toughest old salts imaginable--not pretty to look at, but fellows, by their faces, of the most indomitable spirit.” THE BLACK SPOT DEAL "...But what is the Black Spot Deal, John?", I asked. "It's a Rare Deal, Mate. People keep their weather eye open for such deals, then buy them on their honor. People who is smart as paint is likely to lose their dead lights if they don't see how good this deal be. A collection of the finest Pirate's Pewter. 30 Dirty Scoundrels, Monkeys, Artillery, Barrels & Treasure Chests and even Captain Flint himself" Why are you talking like this John? "Yarrr, I dunno" he replied All miniatures 28mm scale and are cast in fine Pewter. Miniatures are supplied unpainted and a few require a little assembly. Risks and challenges The Major challenge is time Most of the design work has been done eliminating the lion's share of work needed for pre-production. We are working with Fortress Figures to do the Molding and initial casting. Jeff and Ben are highly decorated Veterans of the Kickstarter industry and have over a hundred successful Kickstarters under their belts! I am very confident that we will meet all deadlines in plenty of time.
