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.

      Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one:

      Yep, a dead head.

      50mm base.
      The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint.
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.

      I've got more dead things for you today.  @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead!  Here's my little collection of swamp zombies.


       
      The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere.
       


       
      He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model.  I love him.

      Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40).



       
      I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush.  His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up.  Would make a great shaman-type mini.

      And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game.  Again.  Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now.  Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck.



       
      All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies.

      Which one do you like best?

      Crawling back from the dead here with this fun little handful of zombies!  Added some gravestones to a few of them using popsicle sticks.  Just good ole' classic grave crawling zombies.  Went for a dusty color palette.
       
      Which one do you think turned out best?

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.

      And what's a graveyard setting without some undead wolves to harry the party in the snow?
