Blackwater Gulch: Rebels and Reinforcements Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

Congrats! Some great minis. I had a very hard time not spending money I don't have :) I'll have to suck it up and pay retail next year!

Thanks :) Now I have a lot of work to do :) Just emailed all the concept art to the different sculptors. We added a couple of new sculptors to the mix recently too, so I'm hoping we can have all of the new sculpts done by the end of January if all goes well.

So, did the short KS help or hurt?

 

I know that in my case it hurt - if it had run 24 more hours then I could have pledged. (Payday on Thursday.) But it didn't, so I couldn't.

I finally caved with like 90 minutes left...work break and playing on my phone conspired to crush my will. I just wish Marty made the cut. My stepdad is a HUGE back to the future fan, so it would make a great gift for him to give him both doc and marty.

I ended up not pledging on this one although I was sorely tested right up to the end. I needed that money for Christmas presents and really couldn't justify spending more money on me.

Apparently we had done a bit of shopping throughout the year and over the weekend we realized we already had gotten more than we thought.

I came really close on this one, too. But then I remembered the 200 or so Foundry cowboys and Indians and all the Old Glory figs, too and decided that spending $120 for more figures that I would have to wait until July to not paint was one step beyond even for me.

 

Uncharacteristic WILL save.

My understanding is that it can take a couple weeks after a project has ended before the creator receives the funds from Amazon and the backer info required from kickstarter. Once that all's received I'm sure the creator will need a few days to organize things before sending out the survey.

 

So my guess would be soon... ish?

Right now Game Salute is deciding if they're going to do everything manually with just a plain old Kickstarter survey, or build a Pledge Manager website, and they're neck deep finalizing the orders from the previous campaign. So there probably won't be an official decision till after xmas.

 

 

But in the meantime the sculptors dove right in and are working on the new models now.. but here's a few WIP sculpts & screenshots so far :)

I like them all except for the captain. There's something odd about his shoulder and chest giving a him a very flat and and awkward appearance.

I saw that earlier and thought it looked pretty cool, but I need the mini's from their last kickstarter in my hands before I'd back another.

 

Not because I have any concerns over getting them, but more that I have mixed feelings on some of the postkickstarter renders and sculpts shown from the last one and I want to see what the final product looks like in person.

      Rescued this pair from the Box of Goodwill over the summer, and tried for a quick tabletop job during my Thanksgiving paint binge. Didn't quite get them finished in November, but they are done now.  Spent way too much time on them because I didn't start with a color scheme in mind and ended up having to repaint a couple areas.

      Well, I figured that the market for cactus-folk was small enough that I shouldn't wait on it, so I decided to get to work on a Saguaro Cowboy and a Cactus Dryad. I got the inspiration to get up and get to work when I saw a picture of a crested saguaro:



      which really settled the question of "how do I put dryad hair on a cactus lady and make it work?" 
      Twisted up an armature for a dude and a lady, 


      and started slapping green stuff on.
       
       
      Here's a very rough outline of the dryad's torso with a preliminary series of grooves, almost none of which will probably make it to the finished product.
       

      Both she and the lariat-wielding saguaro vaquero will have blunt, stubby feet and arms with little muscle or joint definition, both because that's how saguaros do and because I am...not a professional sculptor by a long chalk. 

      C&C welcome; this is the rough draft of the first draft of each of them and I'll be doing a lot of trimming and repositioning, no doubt.

      Truly delightful sculpts by Bombshell that work well for a Weird West of gun-toting saloon gals and persnickety varmints. 

      The sculpt listed as "Warfare Wombat" is clearly procyonid and in no way meant to represent a marsupial. Thus does copyright law make fools of us all (well, all except copyright lawyers, I suppose). While he might have been intended for a spacefuture setting, that uniform with the two rows of buttons looked like it could be retconned for a strange American Civil War. So I slapped together a half-assed kepi from greenstuff and painted him in Union blue. I didn't want to obscure the markings on his forehead, so the kepi is being blasted cartoonishly back by recoil. 

      "Rocket's red glare," indeed. 


      Eloise Covington is much more refined, all flounces and furbelows, bustle, ribbons, and lace. Still, she is one determined lady, and a mean shot! 
      The pink-on-pink color scheme is admittedly rather tacky, but tacky in a recognizably Victorian way. 

      Eyes didn't come out too badly on her either.

      My first mini of 2019, she is part of a group I am painting for a steampunk/time travel game my group is playing.
       
       

       
      For inspiration I used this fashion plate, the figure on the right:
