Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

ok ok. people, sit down. dont faint. wait for it. 

 

that centaur does seem a bit big for a normal centaur!!!

 

maybe a half demon centaur or monster of legend centaur, but i dont think its supposed to be a special one. 

 

yes, i said it. something was too big than what i expected.

 

hell...is freezing over.

 

regarding the minotaur - its wonderful. my second favourite minotaur sculpt of all time.  I still want a savage minotaur miniature, like the 3rd edition art, but this one is still excellent.

 

Cerberus - like the size, but it seems like it lacks in fur detail.

Whereas I want some civilized minotaurs, that would work more for PCs than for monstrous encounters.

i'd imagine most people who want greek set already have added to their pledge.  So showing new parts of sets wont raise it as much as the part 1 reveal.

 

Showing 3 or 4 upcoming optional goals (with prices) that are awesome, would cause another spike, IMHO.

Maybe he's part Clydesdale.

 

Some of the old draft horses could be pretty sizable (the largest one recorded was listed over 7' at the withers and over 3,000 lbs).  That's a big horse.

They gave a preview of part 3 of Greek Odyssey on Twitch today. An exciting new minotaur and a huge Cerberus. Didn't see them here yet.

I agree with the part about the texture of Cerberus.

Perhaps that centaur is Nessus - who battled Heracles, and whose poisoned blood killed Heracles in turn?

i can agree, but also i am okay with sculpting fur more than i am trying to fix the Nemean lion's legs xD so i can live with bland fur detail as long as the anatomy isn't super off

I am actually beginning to suspect the texture of the Cerberus is not a fur texture at all, so much as a skin texture.

 

Pathfinder, at least, portrays such monsters as flayed, and largely devoid of fur. This could be a riff on that concept.

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture.
