Mushimen Attack! Kickstarter by Iain Colwell (last 29 hours, funded, live)


Recommended Posts

Looks like the funding period is now closed. I missed out on this one, much as I would have liked to get them, but I've been spending too much on Kickstarters this past month and I have to watch my accounts. I do hope they'll be available at retail.

 

So many small mini studios in the UK. Why there more than elsewhere? These currency exchange fees are not huge, but they are annoying.

Well... this was posted in the KS comments a few hours ago:

"If someone has completely missed the campaign but would like to back it they can message me to sort that out.

Cheers

Iain"

so you can still pick up a few models you really want.

I got my shipping notice...  Getting excited for these.  And the most recent teasers with the brown/ivory/yellow mushimen were really well done.  Here was the update from March 4th.  I think we can say "fulfilling" for this one.

 

 

I managed to get over half of the Mushimen Attack! kickstarter rewards posted this week. I'm aiming to get the remaining rewards packed this weekend for Monday posting!

Parcels have already begun to arrive so what colours will you be painting your Mushimen? Here are some I painted in a brown/yellow scheme. Will be trying out other colour combinations on the rest of the miniatures.

Aaand I got mine today.   They are really clean castings, definitely some mold release still on the models (they are soaking now).  I'm happy with them, and I even got a wee bag of skulls to adorn their bases, so that's going to make me so much happier with some of the dead shriekers...  heck, some of the live ones too!

Oh wow!

That Snail Rider is amazing!!!

 

They came in a 3-pack, and so I have three of them...  Someone is going to have a very bad day.  So, counting Fightin' Fungi ones, I have a grasshopper Rider, Pillbug Rider, and now the 3 slug riders.  I think my mushroom cavalry needs are definitely met now.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Using the long weekend to my advantage, I got a decent paint in on this guy.  Meet Gronk.
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       

       
       
      Trying to do a more comic-style paint job, I did less wash and more highlights with bold color. 
       
      Wins:
      *  The two-toned leathers look fun and eye catching where they need to be.  
      *  Staying to as simple color-scheme as possible helped me draw this one to a close.  (Brown, Orange, Green, ivory, red)
      *  The eyes came out really good and I finally managed one of those little reflective white dots in the corner of the right eye.  
      *  Opting to not color-up every single ribbon or fold as a new color and simply stick to the simple palette helped me keep pushing forward.
      *  The shield came out great!  If you look close on the edges and near the dents, there's small orange highlights that are really faint.  Probably my favorite small thing on this model.  
       
      Misses:
      *  Not digging his green skin highlights.  Did a Green base, then ink wash, then went back over with same green, then brought up by adding white. Placement of the highlights is off as well as not understanding light.  Crux for me. 
      *  Metal sword over all has a good look to it.  Can't seem to use the Vallejo Metals for edge highlighting.  Too runny.  Need to swap to regular metal paints and use edge of brush.  Love the Metals, but they are so thin and spread so quickly. 
      *  Struggled with doing boots.  I want to darken them, but using black just seems too easy.  When they are super dark, I can't figure out how to bring the color up.  Lame.
      *  On the dino skull on his shoulder something bad happened.  I went over it with bone color like 3 times to make sure it was thick enough.  Then did a wash to bring out the dips and dirty it up a little, but I guess pulled up the bone color before it dried - even though it was sitting for 15 or more minutes before I hit it.  That sucked.  Fixable, but not sure why I hate that color so much.
      *  Learning how to be 'subtle' is something I need to develop.  It's almost like I'm needing to see big swings in the color to make  my eye train to it being different, but the reality is subtle would be better.

      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Sea Storm is a resin female pirate bust from Altores Studios in 1/9th scale. The piece is basically the head/body, the hat, pipe, and a loop earring. I replaced the earring with copper wire. Apart from some mold trash where the coat and torso meet, there were no major issues. Primed with my dwindling supply of Floquil Railroad Colors' Gray Primer and painted with Reaper acrylics.
