Artemis 2.0 By Kev White

Recommended Posts

A new kickstarter project from Kev White:

Don't think I shall be backing this myself as I don't do much that is bigger than 54mm.

 

This seems to be happening off Kev's own bat and I don't think Hasslefree is involved. Whether that is a good thing or not I leave to your own judgement.

Well I like the figure, but don't know about the nude version... I'll wait to see if this get closed to the SG cause I think she will look great in armor!

And I find it a little expensive for a single figure :/

While I probably shouldn't considering my 40mm version is just gathering dust unpainted, I'm willing to pledge and see if some armor gets unlocked.

I'm not interested in the nude version(no, I'm not sick or anything... ) so I'm going to just hang around(€1) and wait to see if he produces a nice armored version.

The 40mm is a beautifully sculpted miniature I would have had no use for.  The 75mm is a beautifully sculpted miniature that I have no use for.  If the armored one gets made and is fully clothed and has a spear it would be a fantastic Athena statue in games and setups, but I expect it with still show a little to much for a Athena proxy.  If the actual representation of the Greek goddess Artemis gets done it would also be useful in games and setups.

 

I hope this KS is successful for no other reason than I like to see artists push their talents, but I really do not have the space or money for resin sculpts so my opinion should not really influence Kev's sculpts.

The armored version is funded and almost complete already. There will be a (likely hellenic) draped classical version, if it funds (it's close).

There are reasons besides gaming to enjoy sculpture. I'm happy he's making this one, given how much of the industry has been hamstringed by the needs of gamers (until the last few years, anyway).

Four different versions in progress now; clothed and nude variously armed with sword, spear and bow.

 

Five days to go, I think I will weaken enough to get the "huntress Diana" model.

I like his sculpting but dude messed up one figure from the last KS and despite the repeated tellings of "yeah, we'll fix it", it hasn't been fixed so hard pass. Your customer service is your legacy for good and ill.

No, as he makes very clear if you read the Campaign page; he only supplied sculpts for Hasslefree, he had nothing to do with how the kickstarter was run. And Hasslefree has no part in this project.

"

A number of reasons. 
1. Larger scale miniatures don't tend to do well for us, but this sculpt was just lying around and I felt bad that no one would ever be likely to be able to buy it. 
2. There is a huge backlog of unreleased miniatures already on the production schedule at HF. This little lady is about two years behind the front of the queue and she gets pushed back every time I make something that we know will sell better. 
3. This sculpt was a pet project. I don't see why HF should have to pay for things I haven't been asked to make."

 

Kev is hasslefree so not sure what point you're trying to make. He's doing it independently from the company for numerous reasons but it's the same guy.

      TableTop World has been around for a while, they’re based in Poland, and make great looking resin buildings. I have a few in various states of construction and painting although I haven’t purchased anything from them recently.
       
      Their stuff is very pricey though and I expect that to be reflected in the kickstarter.
       
      I am a bit puzzled by their comment about making this in the bigger 28mm-32mm range, as I thought that was the range that their previous buildings fell into.
       
      Anyway, if you’re interested best prepare your wallets now.

      About
        Hi, my name is Raffaele Stumpo and this is my second KS campaign so let me tell you something about me and my work. I work as a sculptor in the fantasy miniatures, sci-fi and board games industry since 2003. My passion for the fantasy world grew more and more when I was a child. At some point, it became my job. I think my enthusiasm shines vividly in my creations. Thanks to my dedication, I won many industry awards and dozens of Golden Demon, and the following Best of Show: Grog 2016, and Grog 2017.
      If you want take a look to my profile at CMON site.
      In 2008, I started a collaboration with several miniatures studios for the production of fantasy football teams. I worked on dozen of teams, mastering skills and techniques, until I became worldwide known. I prepare my models one by one, that is why they are unique and this is the main reason people appreciate their quality. Everything is handmade. I collaborated in many successful Kickstarter campaigns as a sculptor Designer and as a Guest:
      - Galaxy Defenders - The Earth Strikes Back! boardgame;
      - Galaxy Defenders - Co-op Sci-Fi Miniature Board Game;
      - Sword & Sorcery - Ancient Chronicles;
      - Bull Warriors: Chaos Dwarfs for Fantasy Football;

      Version for fantasy football

        Dwarves: Team Legends
      I've always loved the Dwarves... Their culture, their strength, their pride! 
      I always chose the Dwarves character in every role playing game I joined, video game or board game.
      So, what best opportunity to show my love for the Dwarves than my own sculpting project?
      From this premise is born "Dwarves: Kings and Legends"
      A set of 28-30 mm scale miniatures of Dwarves, compatible with all the major game settings and all convertible to Fantasy Football.
      All the models are completely hand sculpted.
       
      I hope you will like them as much as I enjoyed making them!

      Belius versus Angus and Branag  
       
      Belius the Black is a giant with mysterious origins. We say about him  that it is the reincarnation of a god, or even,  the guardian of an ancient temple. In short, according to the babarian tribes of the North, it is a black legend  related to Bregan Lorelei’s great-grandfather.
       
      Bélius is a 70 mm figurine sculpted by me, not counting my hours, in order to obtain the incarnation of the warrior of evil, chaos and destruction. The resin cast will be made by Mr Dès, former melter of  Rackham , a pledge of high quality. This project , a range of dark fantasy figurines, is important because I can create from A to Z what i want  while satisfying the fans of my work. 
       
      Indeed,  I have been sculpting figurines for more than 20 years : First, for Rackham for 9 years and then for various freelance brands such as Mierce Miniatures,  Monolith with Conan, Mythic Battles and Claustrophobia which are successful  on Kickstarter.
       
      The Kickstarter platform will allow me to finance the moulds for all the figurines, which are all my personal creations. Knowing that the fans of my work will be able to hold them in hand, paint them, or play with them in any kind of games is really a great pleasure for me. This first step is important because i imagine that these figurines are destined for a game in the future.

                       Belius is accompanied by two brothers, Angus and Branag (35mm): They are barbarians from northern tribes. They are elite soldiers ready to  do anything to protect their lands and the Elebore Forest from any intrusion in the name of their leader, the demigod Siegfried.
