Need help IDing undead/mecha miniature

Recommended Posts

This guy stands on a GW base but, according the the local aficionados, isn't.  It's in 5 or so pieces, stands around 10cm tall if I recall, and is molded in a very light but not flimsy plastic--I had to hold it a while to make sure it wasn't resin.  Ideas?

Any chance this was part of a Kickstarter or custom printed?

 

My Google-fu is normally fairly potent, but I have been bested.  I thought I had a lead with some Corvus Belli minis (there is some visual similarity to the Avatar), but ended up with nothing.

is that the color of the material, or does it have a coat of primer?

That's bare plastic.  The pic makes it look just a little lighter than in person, but it has sort of a finecast color and feel.  Also, unless it's an as-yet unheard of machine, I'm pretty sure it's not printed.

The other half suggested that the style might indicate a District 9 type of mech suit.

I had a brief look through the weta stuff and while it's familiar it doesn't seem quite right.

I'm really shocked... this was posted March 9th, and still no answer... Usually these sorts of posts are answered within hours, if not minutes... :blink:

Tell me about it!

I can't find it..I thought it resembled the style of the Empire of Men range, but I can't find anything like it.

People here are good at this, but not omniscient.  There have been at least a couple of cases where minis were never identified.

I'm drawing a blank on this one too.

Having said that, I managed to find it shortly afterward. :rolleyes:

 

It is from the Faceless faction of a Kickstarter boardgame called The Edge: Dawnfall by Awaken Realms.

Sometimes it's just a matter of getting the right set of eyes (or search terms...).

My hero!  And here I am, waiting for this Kickstarter too!  The boys at my FLGS will be pleased, and so will I!

 

@Reaper forumites in general:  I knew you guys could do it!

ID successful. Well done. But this raises a question:

 

These are mirror prints of each other?

Is this photo ^ mirrored flopped left-right ? 

 

(The claw and shield are on opposite arms  and the legs are reversed.)

My photo is correct, or at least not mirrored.  I was kind of wondering that myself.

The original pic with the box comes off as rendered to me.

I think yours is the right one.

      More undead for the table top, because you can never have too many. 
       

       
      These guys bring me to 56 minis painted for the year.

      I'm just about finished with my final piece for ReaperCon, and I needed a break. I needed to paint something fun and with no consequence. I've been eyeing this sculpt from across the room, and I just decided to go for it. Nothing super crazy, just some true metallics, which I haven't done much with in some time. Enjoy!

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
      I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more.
      However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style.
       
      This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
      In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
      There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
       
      I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
       
      Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
       
      Enjoy! ( or not)
       
      Bats and a Murder of Crows
       
      EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe.
      Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
      The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.
       
      Changed the name of the Project.

      For the better part of this year, I've been going through something of a creative funk and it's been driving me a bit mad. (well more than usual anyway) So after thinking upon it for awhile, and taking the advice of the opening track of White Zombie's Astro Creep 2000, (Perhaps you'd better start at the beginning...) I've decided to embrace the madness....
      By the power vested in me by the Great Pumpkin I hereby declare it to be 1996. The world is a saner place and I've just gotten my mitts on the first minis that weren't part of a boxed set or boardgame and soon shall rise a mighty skeletal horde. (To those of you who may not have been alive in '96, fret not I have decided that you exist. Ia! Ia! Ingenti Cucurbia!)
      Anyway, first up are these guys.

      A Heartbreaker Miniatures Army Pack that I think might be Phil Lewis sculpts. Like all of my older metal Undead, they were given a bath in Simple Green awhile back. The original Undead army had been repainted several times over the years, not yet knowing about the wonders of the Green, they had several rather thick layers on them from this. So the decision to restart from a clean slate on the whole lot was quite easy.

      An Armorcast Ruined Mausoleum. Also painted several times, but I'm leery as to how the Green would react with the resin. But even with the new black undercoat, the detail isn't obscured that I can see. Now to find my Painting Flannel Of Necromancy...
