Desert of the Dead, fantasy wargaming miniatures!


Recommended Posts

I checked my reward.

 

Got a huge order with all of the Undead and all of the Elven Cavalry including skyship and chariots.

Most look great.

I got a few broken speartips and a lot of flash.

 

I do have two maybe three issues though and emailed TTcombat about that.

Let's see what they say.

 

My issues.

 

Mummy Centaur Archers.

I can build 8 out of 10.

Two of them won't mix, they have mismatching halves ( honestly why someone needs to create more than two versions I have no idea it will only make it more difficult to pick the right one)

 

My main issue the Undead Heavy Cavalry.

I got the wrong weapons/shield mix for the wrong riders.

The battle standard bearer is alright he comes with both arms attached, apart from him I can only make one rider with a shield and spear.

Somehow I got 2 RIGHT drummer arms so I need a left one.

And then I got 6 LEFT spear arms, 2 RIGHT spear arms and One RIGHT arm shield ( leaving me with a bunch of spears and no shields.

Also some riders have arms and others not but the spears already all have arms so useless for most riders.

 

And then something I'm not sure of, it could be a missing part or it could be just the design.

I got the fire elemental ( one in an RPG Monster pack) but it has no head.

Is this how it's supposed to look or am I missing a head?

 

I have emailed them, included the pics, will see what happens.

 

All in all I like the bigger monsters, characters and vehicles.

Not too impressed with the rank and file though.

Some look like 25mm instead of 28mm.

Will probably sell off a bunch on the evilbay.

Mine arrived today too. Sucked up most of my attention. I was able to play a bit with stuff at lunch. The sorceress on volocigator is pretty awesome... though I managed to break her so I converted her

Greenstuffworld Roller pins, I have cobblestone, Greek, Egyptian, Aztec and Plain. ( the latter is for flattening the putty/clay before you apply a motif) These are awesome!   Some

Actually mine came in the mail today, so no tracking info for my order was ever emailed   But at least it came to the right address

The Box has arrived, and holy broccoli is it huge! I had quite the struggle trying to get it up the stairs :lol:

 

Congrats!

Do check the contents!

I've seen another backer who said he missed all right arms from a unit.

I have received an answer.

They are going to send me the parts I miss.

 

Also, the Fire Elemental is complete and is supposed to look like this.

I was a bit wondering where his head was, but it's fire...

I checked mine, make sure you check the horse's heads. Some heads have reins attached, some don't, in that case the reins are on the body. Some of the reins have a left hand a some have a right hand and some have no hand. The leader is the only one with a shield, all the others use one hand to hold the reins and have a spear in their other hand. There are two or three horses without a hand holding the reins, those are for the commander, banner bearer and musician (off the top of mt head). Took me a bit of puzzling but my group is complete, and then I put them in separate baggies so I don't have to work it all out again.

 

I  got the ultimate pledge, and I'm very impressed. The castings have a lot of flash, but also a lot of detail and character. Most troops have 5 poses + 3 command. I have a few broken spear tips, and possibly 3 missing velocigators from my elven chariots (those are supposed to have 2 each I think), no other issues and about 20 extra models including a set of adventurers that wasn't included in the pledge :D

I will check that.

Still need a left drummer arm at the least then.

I'm sure they'll set you up :) hopefully that's the only thing missing

 

So far that and the Centaur Archers ( 2 mismatching bodies) they did reply, so I have good hope.

Got my box today.  Was never notified about shipping, but when I looked at Backerkit just now it DOES show "shipped".  Based on comments above I will have to dump everything out and check pieces.  Thought they made in a mistake in that there are two Sorceress on Terragons in the box, but turns out I actually ordered two.  Huh.  Don't know why I did that!  Anyone need one (drop me a PM)?  :rolleyes:

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
