MOLOCH - THE MOUNTAIN GIANT



bxp96i06wqaymbyg5zjz.jpg

After Rocco, Jérémie Bonamant Teboul and Allan Carrasco, two stars of the miniatures scene, are teaming up again to produce Moloch, the tallest Figone miniature ever! This is your chance to help bring this ambitious project to life.

As aficionados of his work can attest, monsters and orcs are Allan’s specialties.

He first gave our brushes a massive mounted orc. Giants, by their proportions, are monsters which allows him to show his ability to give life to impressive miniatures.

FIGONE is a French miniatures company founded by Jérémie in 2009 and dedicated to producing and selling high quality figures for collectors, sculptors and painters. FIGONE has what it takes to make a finished sculpt commercially available.

With Indiegogo and your help to fund this huge, highly anticipated project, Rocco was born. Moloch will be the tallest miniature ever produced by FIGONE and the one of the largest ever sculpted by Allan Carrasco.

Moloch will be a large 54mm scale miniature cast in high quality resin, the tallest ever in Figone 170mm!!!!

Here you'll see the final miniature, along with the final concept by artist Bertrand Benoit.

Don’t forget that Allan is an artist and these drawings have served as inspiration rather than a concrete blueprint. He followed them closely but added more details here and there, e.g. a larger claymore, various ornaments, slight changes on the position (back for instance).

As part of this campaign, Romain Van den Bogaert sculpted a new funny bust: Flap.

Straight from Jérémie and Romain's imagination, this bucolic character opens a very wide interpretation panel which should appeal to artists and collectors.



"It is said that Trollus vulgaris, in order to fertilise their mushrooms, splash living beings on their heads. What's more, if they can not find something, they bludgeon themselves to bleed.
- Woaw...THAT explains a lot of things."

The IndiGoGo campaign will finish on beginning of November.
Allan Carrasco has started sculpting the miniature, so that we'll be able to start casting minis as soon as the main goal is reached.

The resin miniature will normally be available in December

Regular updates with WIP shots to all contributors …

The creation of a miniature of this scale requires a lot of investment in terms of time and resources. The team members make their living from painting and sculpting so a certain degree of profitability needs to be assured before they can commit to the project.

The funding we hope to gain will cover the sculpting, molding, casting, packaging and release of Moloch, Flap as well as future stretch goals and as a thank you for your support, offer the model at a discount price for contributors.

So if you want to have your own copy of this marvelous miniature or if you just want to help Moloch see the light of day, now is the time to contribute. A range of perks are proposed below to encourage those who would like to help make this project a success.

We have planned a couple of stretch goals if the funding is far above the objective.

A new Queen is planned, as well as news stickers, bigger than Figopedia's (9cm diameter) and various mushrooms to help you enhance your display bases :)

I was almost the 2nd backer, happened to see it on FB just as it went live....but I'm trying to keep the budget down...

You know you want it... it's sculpted by Allan Carrasco!  Bonus is that it's less than $70 USD after exchange, comes with free shipping, and there'll be some freebies along the way if things unlock!  :devil:

That's a big boy... (on a side note, every time I see the thread title I read "Mountain Goat.")

With a little putty.... anything is possible! BWHAHAHAHAHAHH!
I hear there's a chapter for book 2 showing exactly how to do that.

 

Based on how the book was shipped, I'm not inclined to back this.

I've not gotten any Figone figures before, so I'm curious if they will ship this big bad boy with more protection. I'd certainly hope so, we are talking a piece that we would be paying nearly $70USD for.

I took a look at this after it popped up in my email, but direct orders from JBT are a thing of the past for me until he improves his packaging.  He seems to be a nice guy and will replace damaged items, but they are damaged because he didn't ship them properly in the first place.

My book from his shop was poorly packaged and had to be replaced.

I told him that my postal worked leaves items on the front steps no matter what the weather.

He shipped it the same way the second time. Luckily it was a dry day so it wasn't ruined. 

This seems like a poor business plan IMO. Ship right the first time and save on reshipping damaged items. 

I won't back anything he does or order from him again. It's a pain to have to deal with damaged items internationally.

      A different take on my second frost giant queen and I tried out some freehand on her skirt and cloak. I wasn't able to take Brice Cocanour's class at RVE but I was able to watch it on youtube and took his technique and tried out my own designs
       
      Edit: Forgot to mention she is my trio entry with @Evilhalfling and @Kuroneko.

      Never heard of this before but it's a cool monster. Not sure when or where you'd run into one, but I bet it will be the most inconvenient time and place.   According to online sources they come in all colors, so I loosely based mine on a green iguana.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      Good Friday everyone, I just took some pictures of the 02479, Ettin I completed last night. This is a Dark Heaven Legends metal model that was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It stand on a 50mm base and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Coincidently, I was delighted to see the amazing upcoming two-headed Troll also sculpted by Jason Wiebe that was announced last night during Reaper Live #117 on Twitch. (see the image under spoiler and the end of the post).

      Tere Reaperlased! 
      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur
       
      Julie Guthrie Hill Giant
       
      Julie Guthrie Centaurs
       
       
      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!
