Tikki Trolls by Mortal Arrow

Recommended Posts

Paul Muller has begun sculpting a tribe of Maori warrior-themed trolls.  All arms and heads are interchangeable for customizing your gang of trolls to have its own unique look.  Go feral with claw and tooth alone.  Add some fearsome leiomano war clubs and bone-barbed spears. Turn up the regeneration factor with an array of mutated troll body parts.  Or go macabre, with gruesome “living” weapons and arachnid augmentations. This tribe will have up to 9 different all-metal miniatures from 38mm to 54mm tall.

  This first Kickstarter project will be of a manageable size and well controlled.

I’d be remiss not to mention that Pedro Navarro has sculpted some terrifying pets for the Tikki Trolls including, Giant Pedipalps, Giant Rhino Beetles, a Giant Slug from Hell and a Colossal Rhino Beetle the size of a house.

Take a look – your feedback is important. Thanks!

So I just got an e-email from Mortal Arrow minis:

 

Thanks for your past business with Mortal Arrow! I know that the Fractured Dimensions line of devils and demons may have initially attracted you to Mortal Arrow’s webstore, but I hope that our new miniatures will keep you coming back. With that in mind I thought you might be interested in a new KickStarter I’m running for a line of “old school” Trolls sculpted by Paul Muller.  As you may know, Paul sculpted most of the demon and devil for Fractured Dimensions. These Polynesian warrior-themed trolls will be cast in all metal, and will range from 36mm to 54mm tall. You can check out an early preview of the KickStarter here:

This isn't live until tomorrow night...

But I think my wallet is in trouble....

The Kickstarter is now live. Thanks for your words of encouragement and support.  The goal is to keep the project at a level that is easy to manage and carries almost no risk for me or for the Backers. For example, many of the sculpts are finished, master molds made and limited product runs in hand.

 

My hope is that if this is successful, then Mortal Arrow can continue to pull iconic RPG humanoid types (both evil and good) out of canon and place them into different cultural milieus. To let you know, Lin’Chi and I have consciously developed our fantasy universe to be antithetical to the all too commonly used European cultures. There are so many interesting aspects from other ancient cultures to be explored. I hope that some of you will find it interesting too.

I really like the totems. I'm in right now for a troll and some totems, but I wanted to know if I could just get the totems in case money gets tight.

Part of this conversation regarding the use of cultural characteristics in miniatures has been moved to beekeepers.

Please refrain from further such discussion in this thread.

Thes Hunter - thanks for the compliment on the Totems. You bring up a good point. I'm fine with you using funds that way for the Troll Warrior reward level, but maybe I should have a $5 Add-On Only Reward to avoid confusion.  I hadn't really considered this.

A couple things of interest for the Tikki Troll project:

1) We’ve added Bags of Bugs to the initial list of Add-Ons. These will include a Bag of Beetlings and a Bag of Arachlings (little Pedipalps).  Both sets of small bugs will be sculpted by Pedro Navarro.  The Bag of Beetlings is actually complete and I’ve included a few pics (courtesy of Pedro). These Add-Ons will be $5 for each bag. I’m not quite sure how many will be in each bag, but will be in the range of 4 to 12.

2) We'll be running a contest every two to four days. Winners will get free stuff (all types of miniatures from Mortal Arrow's vaults). Anyhow, to play you must back. So if you're considering to be a Backer, join in early for some fun puzzles, riddles etc.

Thanks Joshua! Let's try to give Paul Muller some extra work this summer. :-)

I may be making this project a bit more collaborative than I intended with the Backers because, you know, it's nice to give the customer what they want. It's also more fun from my perspective. So comments and feedback on the Kickstarter page are always welcome from any of the Backers. Cheers!

Just passed the Funding Level!  Thanks to all of the Backers.  Now we have a bit more than three weeks to add as many minis as possible. First up is my personal favorite, the Arachnid Rider Set. The Tikki Troll rider will be sculpted by Paul Muller and the Giant Pedipalp has already been sculpted by Pedro Navarro. Take a look at the artwork by Bobby Penafiel and let me know what you think. Just $2,500 in Pledges gets us their.

      Story
      By popular demand, we are giving everyone a second chance to own a gorgeous piece of Myth lore!
      The World of Myth is based on the highly sought-after Myth Limited Edition book. It shares the same high-quality leather binding and gilded pages, as well as much of the exceptional art and lore from the original. However, it also includes dozens of pages of brand-new content!
      These new pages will provide readers their first look at parts of the Myth story that have yet to be told, including stories by Brian Shotton:
      After the siege of Farrenroc, a Wall-commander loses faith in the Bright Legion, challenges the Commander-General's strategy and loyalties, and begins a journey to expose the secrets that have led to the deaths of so many of her soldiers. A master storyteller weaves a tale of love and jealousy between Anunkara, the Sun, and Lunankanen, the Moon. But is there more truth to the story than she knows? For those who are new to Myth or who missed the Myth Limited Edition rulebook, this book still includes much of the fantastic world-building from that previous volume, such as:
      Lore overviews for every hero class introduced so far Guidance for solo play, including multi-class deck construction The Art of Myth A full bestiary, including brand-new information about the Lucanines Whether you are a veteran hero or are just beginning your journey into Myth, The World of Myth has many wonderful new things to discover. 
      This is a small, straightforward campaign, so we’ve kept our reward levels to a minimum. We are mostly concerned with offering a leatherbound Myth lore book for everyone who couldn’t get one before. However, we wanted to make sure that anyone who had picked up the previous LE book had a chance to see the exciting new content!
      Digital Acolyte
      This is the perfect level for everyone who already owns the Myth LE book and doesn’t want to pay for another physical book with overlapping content. We’ll send you a full PDF of World of Myth, plus you’ll get digital versions of all the stretch goals. That means that you can print them and play with them as soon as we have them ready to go! 
      World Weaver
      This is the core reward level for the campaign. It features the physical World of Myth book, a gorgeous leatherbound collector’s item that you can proudly display with your Myth collection, whether you have one already or are getting ready to start one. You will also receive a digital version of the full book, and both physical and digital versions of every stretch goal unlocked. 
      We want to keep our goals manageable so that we can get you your rewards as soon as possible. With that in mind, we’re sticking to a combination of cards (which we can print quickly) and digital rewards that do not depend on shipping. The cards will be available digitally so that all backers can play with them, regardless of reward level.

      Story
      Five years ago, CONAN the board game became a massive hit and spawned a faithful community of players, designers, and enthusiasts. Brand new content has been long in coming, but it’s finally time to unlock the remaining quantities of 1st Edition boxes alongside the release of our biggest Hyborian Age expansion ever.
      Those who wish to wet their swords for the first time and veterans from previous campaigns shall join ranks and heed the call of Conan the Conqueror!
      Not only is the Adventure Mode (our original one vs many system) gameplay you know and love making its return, but we’re also adding a revised version of the solo/co-op rules featured in the Conan Monolith Sourcebook. Regardless of which version of Conan you own, or plan to purchase, all of the new content will pair perfectly with what you have.
      To celebrate its 5th Anniversary, we are making the Conan: The Boardgame, the 2015 classic 1st Edition available again in limited quantities. Combined with the new mega-Conqueror expansion you’ll be able to enter the savage worlds and raise your own bloodied sword. 
      This new expansion will boost options for ALL owners of the Conan Board Game. To play all of these new scenarios, you require only the core version of the game; however, King Pledge and Barbarian Pledge owners will find further options in some of the included scenarios.
      All of these scenarios will be presented in the Tome of Skelos: a 60+ page hardcover book in the style of our previous titles. Inside, you will find 6 brand new scenarios for the original Conan Adventure mode (one vs many mode) that make use of all the new miniatures, maps and tiles. We will add a seventh scenario if its Stretch Goal is unlocked.
      We’ve also included an updated version of the solo/co-op rules that debuted in the Conan Monolith Sourcebook as well as a campaign of 7 specially designed solo co-op scenarios, where players will choose their heroes, gather equipment, and gain powerful Boons to complete their escape across the Pictish Wilderness. The Version 1 rules can be found below as well as a description of the gameplay. The Tome will also feature brand new artwork created for this campaign.
