Midblight Miniatures 'Journey into Midblight'

Recommended Posts

Greetings, Children of the Reaper...
  -  I hope you'll give me a pass here, as I have contributed to the great Reaper Edifice (in a very small way) with a few original sculpts (Reaper Ron was kind enough to relieve me of a few Dregs.. a pair of skellies for the last Bones extravaganza).

   - I'm  just about to launch a modest little Kickstarter for a couple of gangs of more-whimsical-than-my-usual-fare fantasy miniatures, which I hope will initialise a small range I can expand on in future  'Midblight Miniatures' :}
   -   The pre-launch page is up (link below, please do take a look),  and am going to press the dramatic sounding 'launch' button this Wednesday (short&sweet KS, couple of weeks)..
      -  I've sent a lot of sculpts over the Atlantic over the years, be very cool to send some 'shiny and pewter' minis  your way (and to rest of the world)!

    Couple of pics of the minis attached (more on the preview)
    Best Wishes, Paul Muller (PuttyConjuror)

Thanks :}
 Just now pulled the lever (what's that distant rumbling sound?).

- I  do hope you enjoy having a look at my 'bright carvings'.
- These ones, are all sculpted in epoxy putty (like they used to).

 Best,
              Paul M

Fair and Generous Children of the Reaper....

 That funded just fine, and is now ticking along very well, for a modest 'First Kickstarter Expedition'.
- My thanks to everybody who has supported or taken the time to have a look at my little project :}

- I've kept things pretty streamlined, as this is a first expedition. There are several achievable stretch goals, one of which is an Owlbear Hatchling the numerous D&D (or Owlbear collector) enthusiasts might find of interest?
- Will (I hope) unlock in just a few days.
- I forgot how to draw when I learned how to sculpt, but this should give you a pretty good impression :

-Actually that's pretty decent for me- can't do foreshortening and hands are tricky.. always loved comics, but struggle to keep characters looking the same from frame to frame.
 Still, it is enjoyable doodling/conjuring something original-ish up, a bit of a diversion from this bitter vale of tears :}

Just a bit of EvilEyeCandy for you  :}
- A good thing about this cyber(socialmedia)sphere, is encountering fellow travellers with similar interests, and inspiring talents.
  This excellent BrushMinstrel painted a fine portrait of Ma Grita (really grimmer fairytale feel to her.. very halloweeny):

I suspect The Children of the Reapers's eyes are now firmly fixed on a 'larger prize' (timing!).
~Last few days of my (slightly more modest) Midblight Miniatures 'First Expedition' Kickstarter.. characterful (I hope) hand-sculpted and cast in the UK, 'shiny and pewter' miniatures.

  Thanks for taking a look at my wares!

Ah too bad these weren't already out & I already had that hag in my possession. She'd make a great Jenny Greentooth, the green hag in the Ravenloft AL season adventures. I'm running them later this month.

 

Congrats on a successful KS thou!!

Thanks!
It's gone better than I'd expected for a 'First Kickstarter Expedition'. I put a lot energy into it (well the models and background at least;  I'm not one of those individuals with the gift to whip collectors into a frenzy), and I hope that shows.
- I've enjoyed dabbling with the design side of things; the project also got me doodling (duddling) more actively (combo of ClipArtStudio&GIMP).
- 'Tis a pity I didn't have them all painted in time, and a nice bit of scenery, but... I'll get round to that.

- That is too bad (she'd make a good river hag)!
 -They will be available down the line, once the Kickstarter backers have been taken good care of (I'll have to sort a webpage/store out for that though). Thanks for pausing to take a look :}

'The Narrow Aperture Dwindles' (this one closes end of Wednesday, UK time)

My thanks to all you Children of the Reaper for pausing to glimpse my 'bright carvings' (and for all the shares/likes bestowed, really helps; much appreciated)!
 

Wishing you sharp eyes and steady brushwands,
Paul M (there will be further 'expeditions'..).

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      "Crosslances is an artistic reality consolidated for many years, we have dedicated ourselves very often to model making and playing miniatures in 28/32mm scale.
      This time, however, we want to launch a completely different project, an absolute novelty, our original idea.
      In fact, we want to make available to you these fantastic sculptures of ours, which can be printed directly at home, painted and placed inside your bookshelves to obtain stunning effects!"

      Coming soon!

      The Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter from Kobold Press. 
       
      This is the old school, mega dungeon you've been waiting for!
       
      And, it will be of particular interest to folks here, because one of the things the Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter will offer are a set of beautiful, poster-sized, table-ready battle maps to play on (and use all our awesome minis on! :)

      Be sure to click the link below to be alerted the moment this goes live!

      PDF is an inexpensive $1 supplement by Philip Reed, who has run multiple KS campaigns, and has been writing RPG material for 20+ years. He's also head bean counter at Steve Jackson Games.
       
      The rumors are essentially adventure seeds, mostly for single encounters. You have to stat out the details. See the free sample.
       
      Most of the material has been previously published in previous KS as articles. This KS is for a collection of his work. Sometimes, he'll give free PDFs of his previous work during a campaign.
       
      Personally, I recommend the PDF because you're only going to need a few pages at a time, and can cut up the printout for any illustration handouts.
       
      Dead tree copies are available through DriveThruRPG. See the KS for details.

      Fantasy Football - FANS!
       
      These would have been perfect for the 'gang fight' that opened the fantasy cops campaign -

      The way the orc is commiserating with the human.
       

       
      I don't play Blood Bowl, but even so, these tempt me.
       

       
      And a place for the fans to sit -

      It captures the feel I want for the city - a place where humans, elves, dwarfs, orcs, and others live together as a community. Where a human and an orc can both mourn for a bad play from their team.
       
      *EDIT* €15 for the STLs - pretty reasonable - and I think the bleachers will see a fair amount of use.
