Greebo Primal Scales

Recommended Posts

Is this still planned on March 12th? I read somewhere they won’t start it until they’re finished fulfilling the previous one but I’m not sure how much truth there was to that or how the fulfillment is going. I’m excited either way!

I was hyped about this one, then realized its only metal. :( Sucks for the ones of us who enjoy resin over metal. :/ Guess I am out.

I am looking at some of these models to convert to sci fi Vesk for Starfinder...they have the perfect look. Anyone had experience with these guys...do the figures keep the detail?

I'd say that Greebo is leading in fantasy football miniatures, and they have quite the fan-base. They wouldnt be that successful if they produced sub-par quality figures. Now, with that said, I dont have personal experience from their figures, so I wouldnt bet my life on their quality being top notch. But none-the-less I think it is fairly safe to say that you'll be happy with it.

 

They also posted these images from a previous KS campaign they ran. The metal looks pretty darn good.

I have backed many of their Kickstarters and have never been disappointed with the detail of the models.  There are the typical issues of small gaps, etc. associated with metal castings, but nothing I would consider to be the result of poor sculpture.

 

If I were provide any negative comments, they would be 1) their fulfillment processes seem to be slow and cumbersome and have never hesitated to stop fulfillment entirely for prolonged holidays, and 2) they have historically not provided assembly instructions, and frequently pack all parts, un-sorted, into the same container.  They did provide JPGs of parts and exploded views for this last Kickstarter though.  Hopefully that will continue.

It looks like this, because Greebo use their own wash, Greebonite, to enhance the look and to pop out the details on metal miniatures. A full description about this can be found on their homepage.

I've also got a lot of their figures.. I can prime one of my undead tonight if you want.. 

 

@Clearman covered the jist of it.. I'm not sure I'd get a lot of their big, complex models anymore.. they just have too many parts IMHO.. they could be cut better. otherwise their quality is totally worth it

Definitely going to pledge, though will pick and choose....don't play Bloodbowl, so no interest in a whole team.

 

Thanks all for the information re quality

I got a few minis from their Alastoran Kickstarter, and I've been super happy with them.

I agree that Greebo is currently doing some of the very best fantasy football minis (even though Games Workshop really stepped it up, and Willy are doing some nice things.

I've been wondering: I'm only interested in the add-ons, so I just pledged for that. But I don't know / want to figure out which ones I want now, so I just pledged $1 since it looks like (from the comments) you can add more to the pledge manager later. But that feels like "cheating", both to Greebo for not shelling money up-front without penalty, and to Kickstarter who doesn't get their share of that amount (since it wasn't during the pledge). Am I missing something?

The only thing you're probably missing is just the spirit of Kickstarter.  If you believe in the campaign, back it with what you intend to spend.  If you just want cool minis, your current strategy is fine.  I've done the same in some cases, and base my decision on how excited a am about the models.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.

      About
      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
      The artwork
      Red Belle 
       Blue Belle 
       Yellow Belle  
       (see more angles at the bottom!)
