About

Hi to all and welcome in my new Kickstarter campaign! this is a little campaign, composed by three busts. Each of them is a part of a story, a legend born from folklore or...yes, why not, by me. So, let's begin to show you my three last works!

 

Kuzunoha, the fox of Shinoda (large size bust)

 Kuzunoha is a popular kitsune in the japanese folklore. She was the kami of Shinoda's temple and, assuming human form, she got married with the poet Abe no Yasuna. From this love was born Seimei, a legendary Wizard. Foxes, in Japanese mitology are powerful demons and i feel myself linked to this mystical figure. Kuzunoha is a  resin bust high 10 cm and composed by four components to assemble with glue and paint. 

Windo the traveler (Small size bust) 

Windo is a little bust high 5cm and composed by three components. Windo is a mage...a bard and an old traveler. He tell stories to every one that want to speak with him. 

Sometime, when I play with my immagination, I like to think that Windo is myself in the next 30 and in another world full of magic...yes...for me is really funny. So, take a look! 

this is Windo!

Le Chat, the monster hunter (Kickstarter edition) (large size bust)

Le Chat is already produced but this model is really important for me so I wanna give him some optional part and create some new version of this model. This character is inspired by the cat with the boots and  by some videogame. Is an interesting kit composed by much components, much of them optional. In this special edition, Le chat has two optional medallion, a chaos star and an head cat! Hope that you like this model high 8 cm and composed by 10 components ( optional parts included)

I saw the first picture on Facebook this morning.  What you can't tell from that angle is the umbrella is a mushroom with a chicken leg for a handle.

I'll post a picture or two for those who are wise enough to abandon facebook. The side shots seem a little too topless for this forum so it'll just be front and back.

Elder-Forge does beautiful and unique sculpts. I still need to paint my "Magic the Flame" from them. This one is... interesting. Not sure what I think yet.

The fox isn't that interesting to me, but I appreciate the kasaobake! Weird Japanese yokai make for the best mimics!

Hello! this is the second bust and last work for my next kickstarter! I am proud to show you Windo the traveler. I love to play with my imagination...I think that you already know this :P ...so, sometimes, I love to imagine myself in the next 30 years...in a fantasy world and may be that this character is simply...ME!!! So I've created this work joking with myself! Windo is a traveler, a wizard...and a bard, an old man with much stories to tell you...the same stories that I love to learn and to tell to the people that talk with me. Windo is sculpted in Beesputty and composed by three components. High 5 cm, it will be available on my next kickstarter

Hi to all! First of all thank you to Samurai Jack for sharing my project in this forum, this is a surprise and an honor for me. And thank you to every people that has commented . This is really important for me to know what do you think about my works. I am the founder, producer, graphic and sculptor (ok, yes...I am the the only employee of my little brand) so is fantastic to see people interested to my little house. I try to create something of original and different from the classic fantasy. I try to tell stories with my words...with my imagination.

 

About the umbrella...Sanael! yes, the strange umbrella is a Kasaobake. So...i try to imagine a story..the story of Kuzunoha...a kitzune, the guardian of the Shinoda temple. For one time...some hundred years ago, she was a wife, a mother. But now she is just a demon that live in the temple, forever linked to it. The strange umbrella is a key to read this work, to undersand how much old is Kuzunoha. The spirits Kasaobake are objects that, for the japanese folklore, become alive after one hundred year that remain unused inside a building. Now Kuzunoha, that is alone, take this mad spirit on his shoulders to feel less solitude, to talk and to find a friend that protect her from sun and rain. So Kuzunoha is alone, yes, but also happy to find a friend...his Kasaobake, an Umbrella that can be painted in every way you want  :poke:

 

THANK YOU GUYS!!! ::P:

      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.
