Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter


Recommended Posts

I don't wanna be that guy, because I'm just being picky and honestly it's fine the way it is and all, but I'll Internet pinky-swear to buy at least bard if the head starts looking more like the concept art.

 

Yeah, the art's faces are rather distinctive, and the model's faces don't capture the looks. I have this starred, so I'll watch how things develop.

 

A lot of the 'winter' ones look like well armed and equipped miniatures to use in games.

A quick paint job on one of my resins. i was going for a “Darkest Dungeon” art style.  

At last! I just could 'not' remember my account details :)   Right, let's see what I can do here to answer these questions...   1. Thanks everyone for the plugging, compliments and support :)  

New update with only one pic... but it's a good one. I absolutely did not expect that I'd want a Ksenia figure, but the living "winter" version looks amazing! The update was posted to showcase her fac

I know someone already said this, but as good as Matt Dixon's art is, I am here for the Kev White Sculpts. I think they look great. Not 100% to the art, but... If they break off the head and make a new one, I hope they offer both the current and the new.

No elves. Think I'm going to drop my pledge and hope that Kev sees sense with an elves Kickstarter soon

I'm thinking the same. I'd rather spend my money on that elf that was shown a few weeks ago and other minis from his store.

I love Kev's sculpting as well, but I'm actually in for this Kickstarter as much for Matt Dixon's artwork.  I really love his contrasts, like to me the cavegirl looks cute, but as if she's thinking "sure, I'm just cute and innocent, and hey....a club?  No no, this is just a walking stick!"

 

I went with the dozen in metal.  At some point I want to try some of the resins, but financially it worked out better for me.  I'd rather have a dozen metal minis than 6 resins, and that's the choice I was down to.  I have very few nudes, and I am quite interested in getting some of these in 2 or all 3 options.

Add me to the group that loves the artwork, but is a bit concerned because the WIP faces don't look like them at all. The rest of the sculpts' parts look great, but IMHO the faces aren't delivering the character and attitude represented in the art. No offense intended to the sculptor, he/she is obviously amazingly talented, they are just different.

 

I'm currently in the KS right now, but may drop out or drop down to just purchase companions if that's possible depending on how the sculpts end up.

I only can speak for myself, but no misconception here. I just think his styling kind of ruined the charm of the bard.

 

 

She sort of looks like a melting doppelganger.

Sculpts always differ from the concept art. Whether that is a plus or minus is usually very subjective and frequently changes depending on the vision of each artist. I'm avoiding investing in large amounts of metal, so I will probably go in for just the male wizard/painter and one or two of the ladies. Not sure which yet.

 

The only metal Kickstarter that I still regret not going all-in on is the Stephanie Law one for Dark Sword. But I did get one at retail that I'm now afraid to paint.

Sculpts don't always differ from the artwork, but it agree that they most often do.

Although I believe some sculptors styles are better suited to some concept artists styles than others.

I believe Patrick Keith was a better match for Dixons style. He's also a good match for Talins art too.

Megan wants all of the skyclad models.

 

I want the ones in more reasonable attire. (For some reason the skyclad models all make me think of the webcomic Pawn....)

 

That said, I rather like the Skyclad Dawn - a bit more Junoesque than many - but I still prefer the most clad version.

 

Oh, dear gods... I just realized what the 'embarrassing present' that Megan mentioned is likely to be....

I'm in for six in metal at the moment, not sure which ones but I'm thinking definitely the naked male wizard as that would be a fun villain to spring on the PC's. Hoping to see some more beast companions as stretch goals, that little dino is pretty cute!

      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.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
