About

This project creates a resin dragon model for use in the Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures Game in 32mm scale.  This model will be sculpted by the amazingly talented Julie Guthrie.  You can easily find examples of her work by searching online, particularly her work for Reaper Miniatures.  We are extremely fortunate to be collaborating with her on this project.

For more information about the Freeblades game, see our website at www.dgsgames.com Your pledge will take this new creature from concept art, to masterful sculpture and then into production to be delivered to our backers. 

Dragons are denizens of the hidden world of Karelon, an alternate reality separated from the World of Faelon by The Between.  There are nine dragons, one for each of the nine energies: fire, water, air, earth, ice, illusion, celestial, void and an energy not yet revealed in our world.  Thrakansor is the Dragon of Fire, and devastates Faelon in the opening stages of the BrightSword War.

To get a sense of scale of the model, here is the concept art with a human silhouette for reference.  That silhouette represents a human-sized Freeblades model 32mm in height.

The model will come with a 120mm round resin base.  

Sometime after all rewards have been delivered, Thrakansor will enter the Freeblades game system with complete rules and be available for use in scenarios that feature a large beast such as Beast Hunt and The Lair.  We intend to publish additional scenarios that specifically make use of this model.  Interested backers can be part of the playtesting of this model's rules and scenarios.

This is a very simple project.  We are only making one thing - this beautiful dragon model.  There will not be any stretch goals, so the incentive to get us over the funding level rests in your hands.  Tell all your friends who might be interested that they can have a large resin dragon model sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the simple pledge of $60.  

We here at DGS Games would like to take this opportunity to thank our long time friend and Freeblades player Bryan Bledsoe for being the driving force behind this project.  Bryan generated sufficient interest in this project for us to take a look at doing it far earlier than intended and it has led us to this point where we are collaborating with one of the world's most renown miniature sculptors to bring a very important new creature into our pantheon.  A million thanks Bryan, we would not be here without you.

One of the main reasons why this project was not originally on the plate for this year is that we already have a major kickstarter project planned for launch on 1 January 2019 in which we will create two entirely new factions for the Freeblades game.  Please follow us and watch for more information coming soon.

==========================

A kickstarter to fund a Julie Guthrie dragon seems like something that would have been posted everywhere, but I hadn't really heard anything about it until just before it launched. Is there any other news out there? WIP maybe? The concept art isn't making me particularly excited, but... a new Guthrie dragon!

Interested, but I really do not like the wings in the concept art.  They have no surface area to speak of and would be even more ornamental than dragon wings usually are.  Come-on, at least sell the illusion that it can fly.

 

I'll consider backing if I can see what Julie is going to do with it before the end.

I was interested until I saw the buy in price. Ouch!  I trust Julie to come up with something beautiful, but I agree it would be nice to see something besides concept art.  However for $60 I can get 3 Bones dragons of similar size....

      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
