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
      Hello everybody,
      We want to introduce you to Iván Sánchez, aka “Blocsanchez”, one of the members of HeraModels. We are thrilled to share with you his first sketchbook “Wasteland”. Within the last year, Iván has been working in the content of this book what wasn't easy to combine with his daily work of miniature concept artist in our small study. Iván is very passionate about traditional drawing, that is the reason why every design in this book is a pencil sketch except for the cover that is digital.
      With this and our future projects, our objective is to create an editorial line of fantastic art. We decided we didn't want a typical sketchbook, collecting drawings from forgotten notebooks where you can find all types of characters; we wanted to make something personal and with an argumental line.
      Then, after a lot of thinking, we decided to make a book collection of different races. “Wastelands” is the first chapter of the collection and embodies illustrations and sketches of barbaric warriors of the barren lands.
      Original Art of "Wastelands" example for pledges #5 & #6  The original book contains 48 pages but with your help we hope this number keeps increasing. We have selected the best designs with more than 50 characters and we hope all of them can be published in the book. We want the book to be handy and user friendly that is why its size is 17x24cm (6,7”x9,5”). Through the campaign, we will unlock different rewards that will make possible to increase the number of pages of this book and will vive you the possibility to get exclusive products only in Kickstarters. In this campaign, you´ll not only get our sketchbook “Wastelands”, it will be possible to choose the option to get an original sketch made by Ivan inside your book or to get one of the original illustrations printed on it. Later we will explain the campaign more widely.
      Original Sketch example for pledges #3 & #4  Later on we will explain every detail of the content in each pledge to make sure that you get what you really want. Besides, while the campaign goes on and we unlock other products we will update the content of each pledge.
        For those who have chosen pledge #5 or #6 you could choose between one of the following original illustrations, you just need to send us an email echen you make the reservation with the number of the illustration that you prefer. You can see the images in a bigger size in our website .

      About
      The campaign purpose.
       
      The  purpose of this campaign is to get the funds to produce these new  miniatures and also expand the Greenskin Wars range with new models and  allies for them.
      Material: All the miniatures are made of  lead free metal and are supplied unassembled, unpainted and without  bases (bases can be supplied at request for a small extra cost) I  decided not to include bases because there's a wide variety of clients  who want square bases for regiments , some round or hex for skirmish  games... so we better avoid the extra cost of adding bases that you  might not use in the end.
      This is a very durable material able to  keep very sharp detail, but while I check every order personally before  sending, keep in mind the copies are not "perfect" and some complex or  multipart models might need some pinning, cleaning or small adjustments.
      Most of this HUGE range of greenskins and related creatures are sculpted by the legendary ex GW sculptor Kevin Adams, who has an awesome taste for these kind of creatures, but this time we have another legend, Drew Williams delivered three awesome "classic" looking ogres! 
      The Greenskins Hunters: After the great war and the devastation that turned the world into a greenskin nightmare, a brave group of heroes rose from the ashes to travel across the land hunting the greenskin scumm. These models are packed with details, representing them wandering across the lands, camping and surviving out there while they fight the green horde. Ogres sculpted by Drew Williams, rest of the gang by Kev Adams.
      The better choice, get ALL THE NEW STUFF!  You'll save money and it's simply awesome!
      Save some coins and get them all in one click! The Greenskins Hunters: These are the heroes who bring hope to the land, will you trust in them too? 4 Veteran human soldiers, a couple ogres, one brave dwarf warrior and a sneaky halfling.
      The legendary Greenskins Hunters patrol!  Detail of the Hunters: 
      If you find them, maybe you can hire them!  The Ogres: Ogres have very "few" morality, so they can join, left and jin again with old comrades. This pledge grants you a nice  and deadly unit of three ogres! 
      A terrifying unit of Ogres! The Greenskins!!
      Bulbus army characters: The heroes in charge to command Bulbus Peppernose troops, do some nasty jobs, etc. They are here to please you ;) 
      Each one has his role...in theory.... The infamous Goblin Bitting Sticks!: These are one of the most scary goblins you can find around...or at least those bitting creatures tied on top of their lances are!   
      Huge mouths and so bad behaviour.... Orc Archers: Some nice firing power for your guys, and how lovely they look together!  
      Orc Archers pack, they come with detached quivers for their backs. Iron Orc Chief: Another brute to lead your Orcs and Iron orcs stuff!  
      Iron Orc Chief And last but not least, the Renegade Ogre Pit Fighter! Not a greenskin, but you better not mess with him...  
      Ogre renegade Pit fighter.

      Risks and challenges
      TAG, are a recognized miniature manufacturer of long standing, In the past 18 years once we commit to a Project, we always complete.
      As such we don't envisage any massive issue with this small ( 6 packs) Kickstarter.
      We have the Original models moulded, master-cast, and in pre-production, ready to move to full production, if and when, full Funding takes place.
      We have our own professional Mail Order facilities, and have completed on over a dozen Kickstarters, for TAG, and for many other small scale mini retailers here in the UK.
      As always, I'm sure there are a few ways we could cluck this up, but we promise that we'll work really hard, to make this a success, and if we don't you can give us a 'basting' on social media.
