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'..).

      Our big office project is Car Wars Sixth Edition, a completely new edition of the classic game of autoduelling.
       
      The project launches tomorrow morning and runs through January 6th. We're running pre-campaign stretch goals based on number of followers to this page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sjgames/car-wars-sixth-edition-by-steve-jackson-games
       
      One last pre-campaign stretch goal remains to unlock. 
       
      Any questions? Please ask away and I'll answer as best I can.

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One  
       
      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Story
        "After seeing the demo at SPIEL, Divinity Original Sin the Board Game immediately became one of my most anticipated titles for 2020!"
                                                                                                                   --Aldie from BoardGameGeek
        "It feels JUST like the video game. ESPECIALLY the combat, which balances perfectly on the all too familiar razor edge of 'we got this!' and 'we’re all gonna die!' "                                                                                                        --Jesse Cox
      Divinity Original Sin: The Board Game is an epic adventure game set in the world of Rivellon. Up to 4 players take their heroes on a branching, narrative adventure, filled with tactical combat and meaningful choices. Thanks to the Chronicle System, the choices you make will impact not just your own story, but the future of the Divinity Original Sin universe. Based on the award-winning Divinity Original Sin II video game by Larian Studios, the board game developed by Lynnvander Studios expands Divinity in new directions, adding new stories, side quests, skills, items, and monsters, all in a brand new tabletop experience.
