Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

Yeah.  I think they are close enough that there is a chance.  Doesn't mean that Blizzard would do anything, but they are well know for protecting their IP.

Come on guys. There is nothing similar between the Diablo Butcher and the other character. The face looks nothing like it. On the sculpted miniature he wears a mask and has few, longer sharper fangs, as the Butcher has many, small, sharp teeth. The Butcher also has those two, large fangs that shoot out of the mouth that the sculpted figure doesn't have. The horns are nothing alike. The overall costume design is very different. The sculpted figure has this loingcloth whereas the Butcher has a leather apron. The sculpted also has several armour plates for protection, which the Butcher is lacking.  The weapon is rather different, too. The Butcher has his boneaxe, while the sculpted has a completely different design to it. The hook? Yea, a bit similar but still not a copy.

 

While I don't deny that there are inspiration and influences from Diablo, it is so far away from violating any IP that I'm confident in saying that hell has to freeze before this sculpt would be stopped.

The shape is the same. They both have chains/stitching in their bloated muscles. The hook is on a chain, with chain wrapped around the wrist. The axes are different material, but same shape. The footguards are similar. The foot shape is similar. The body shape is similar. The loincloth is one apron-top away from similar. The head has different horns and tusks, but is small and prominent at the front instead of on top of the shoulders. 

 

Seriously, it has been about a year since I picked up D3, and before seeing the text I went "the Butcher?" Not sure if this is the line of "inspired by" or "taken from" but they're damn close to issues I think.

Outstandingly done skeletons... that I have no interest in. Painting skeletons isn't really my thing. Darn amazing sculpts nonetheless! 

 Agree about those renders. Some of the best skeletons I've seen.

 

I'll be curious to hear reviews when backers receive the physical production minis.

They're going to re-mould it to sharpen up a few areas, but I think it looks pretty decent already IMO.

I don't think they're 28-32mm scale, are they? I thought they were in the 70mm+ scale.

Spotted on another forum. Has anyone posted these pictures here yet? I don't think so.

Each of these painted figures appears to be ~43mm tall, assuming that ruler is accurate
