Recently I painted a Crypt Lord and in the Show Off there was an introduction.
See and read it here:
@Gadgetman! commented that he wanted to see the goat.
So here it is, it's from the Animal Companion Set sculpted by @TaleSpinner Reaper Sku 03719.
I love your animal sculpts Andrew, they are a real pleasure to paint!
Omar's son, Mehmet herded the goats but his mind was elsewhere, one of the goats wandered off without him noticing it.
Our adventurous animal took off and found herself walking between the ancient ruins of a long dead civilization.
When it entered a dark building it got scared and it bleated loudly, the sound echoed through the empty halls.
Alarmed by the noise General Ahm Me Hula the Second rose from his Sarcophagus, ENEMIES!!! RAIDERS!!! He needed to protect the Pharaoh!
He rose from his slumber and quickly grabbed his weapons.
Time to once again defend the realm!
He alarmed his men and all over the place skeleton and mummy warriors rose from their eternal sleep.
The Pharaoh himself needed to be warned!
Giving the order to a Liche Priest he himself walked out to investigate how many raiders there were in the ruins.
The first enemy he encountered was Omar who was looking for his goat.
And so it came to pass that our dear little goat was responsible for the awakening of the Tomb Lords.
Their armies are now gathering and the living must once again fear their wrath!
The name of our General is a variation on a expression from my Birthcity Rotterdam...
About this project
I've been making miniatures for about three years now, during that time I've made sculpts for various miniature companies as a freelancer sculptor. Now I've decide do to take the plunge and produce some of my own miniatures. That aspiration led me to Kickstarter.
I've been busy sculpting the range of undead miniatures presented here over the last few months. They're predominantly 28mm sculpts, the Undead Heroes are larger at 32mm scale, to fit their powerful status. I consciously made them an eclectic bunch, including animals. My vision of the undead force is a terrifying mix of all forms of life, bent to the will of their masters.
During the course of this campaign, I'll continue to sculpt miniatures to add to the range. I have a Facebook Group - March of the Dead, where I'm working on suggestions offered by the groups members. The more popular ones will be joining the miniatures here.
The objectives of this project are to firstly see the miniatures produced in white metal by Macrocosm Miniatures and in your possession In a timely manner.
If things go really well, then hopefully I can also get a shiny website made, so I can continue producing miniatures and offer them online.
Anyway. I think that covers the background. Time to show you the miniatures on offer.....
To select multiple rewards, pick one of your choices, then amend the total to include the grand total. I'll then collect the details of your order with the Pledge Manager.
The Hog Wild Crew from the game Malifaux by Wyrd Games.
Warning: I don’t play Malifaux, but I do love these minis. Apologies in advance about any in-game mistakes I might make here.
These are the entire contents of the boxed set called “Hog Wild”. HIPS plastic miniatures, many pretty small parts and a bit fiddly, especially the bonus gremlin (to the left) that was included in the box. Even so, lovely minis with a great sense of both personality and movement.
The Hog is called “Old Major” but I have done him up as the tyrant Napoleon from the Animal Farm animated film (1954) which is a film everybody should watch (or read the book by George Orwell).
“Old Major”, incidentially, is also the name of the old hog who starts off Animal Farm by holding an inspirational speech shortly before he dies, a speech that inspires the revolt on the farm and the rise to power of Napoleon. But I found this model to be much more Napoleonesque than the wise Old Major…as some animals are more equal than others.
Ulix is the Leprechaun-like beardo with the top hat, and as far as I can tell, the leader of the crew.
Penelope the hound helps keep the rest in line. I did this one similar to a dog a friend of mine had many years ago.
The three little pigs huge boars. Excellent models with heaps of animation and personality!
Imagine one of these barreling out of the undergrowth, charging straight at your little, unprotected hunting party…
And the bonus bayou gremlin, and extra included in the box with a sticker on the outside.
It all started with a D&D group forming. That's when I started up the painting minis in June. And having trouble finding figures that we felt represented our characters, I opted to have some fun and use some anthropomorphic Dark Sword critters. Plus, I admit I was a little scared of doing human faces on my first go.
What they represent in our game, from left to right -
A Half Elf warlock, a Goliath warrior, an Elf swashbuckler, and a Dragonkin cleric of Talos.
And the badger's weapon is a conversion because the original mace head broke off and my friend's character carried a glaive. I bought one of the Reaper weapon packs and used a piece from that for the conversion. I also got a surprise and found that I had already bought the badger a long time ago, so I had two! So I painted both up and call them "The Brothers".
I love their furry cloaks.
