Is that kneeling ranger part of it?

 

Anyway, I'm thinking, this would also make a great photo backdrop item!

No offense to Cadirith, but the new spider looks much better overall.

 

Maybe Cadirith is the male, and this is the female?

In the email it says
Kings tracker
Gallowgard gate
4 skeletal troops
Lord Karastan the deathless.

That means Cadirith isn't going to be around much longer...

Right that's the King's Tracker.

Thx!

It looks to my untrained but eager eye that the top of the wall above the portcullis looks hollow. Hollow-ish, at least. I wonder if it could be cut out and a raisable one could be put in. Or if Reaper would kindly make such arrangement s out of the gate?

 Cadrith is a demon spider. Demons don't die, they discorporate, return to their plane of origin for a variable amount of time and PLOT REVENGE!

Let me explain what I mean.

 

As a stand alone piece, they sort of had to add semi-ruined walls on the flanks to add some visual interest. On the other hand, those same spots make it difficult to integrate into another set of walls. What good is an armored gate if your walls are already falling down? As part of a larger castle it would've been better modeled with edges that can stand flush against other walls.

 

I think it's a cool piece, I just think it's hard for it to serve both aims well. At $18 it's an easy pass for me even though I think it's nicely sculpted.

I know how I plan to use it.

 

Ruined gate with a pallisade built out from it.

 

Pallisades are easy to model. ::):

I like the gate set, but totally not among my needs. Must focus budget tight.

 

May your fortunes shine brighter than mine

 

...must...have...castle...set...

Totally get trying to integrate it into another set of "in repair" fortifications.

 

But, walls can be made of spells, too.  Which wouldn't surprise me in a situation where a large number of retainers look to have already passed beyond the veil.  Or if it's held aloft by magic, or rests on a tor.

Would also be good to swap in for a gate section that was destroyed during a siege game.

 

I have seen people repurpose cut up sprue bits as rubble piles, so very doable.

Or they are Avondales.

 

Grump LOVES Avondales. <_< "Mommy and Daddy spider, raising the kids together. It's so DISNEY!"

 

 Right, honey. Disney. :rock:

And honestly, intelligent male spiders would probably show up with a pig or cow or something to satisfy that post mating urge to gorge. We humans, for instance, don't ALWAYS fling poo and thump our chests at challengers. We save that for election years.

Aside from the ship, that spider is still the thing that I want most so far.

I've just thought about something and I'm so excited... 

The spider's encounter: Shelob, or the spider's of the dark forest. 

This gate: The gate to Minas Morgul. 

 

Can you imagine something like the tower of Orthanc? Or even Dol-Guldur!! 

Imagine that... evil stronghold tower as another encounter. Idk, a 50$+ one if needed. Omg I would be SO in....

      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.
