Hot and Dangerous 2

Recommended Posts

I prefer the actual minis poses and proportions to that of the art... but prefer the faces in the art on every one.

I was gonna say a British judge myself. Glad, I'm no the only one to think that.

 

 

You're really not the only one to think that but maybe that's because I am British.

The art is by far better than the sculpts, imo. As for the Swedish carolean, the face and hair looks off, and it's a shame they didn't go with a musket instead of the pike, seeing how the muskets dominated warfare at the time. There are some design flaws in the uniform too, if they are aiming for historical correct uniforms.

This is a whole lot like me looking at sculpts on Patreon and MMF. the head seems weird, why is the nose in the art small and pointed but the sculpt is wide and flat..

I love the dynamic and the facial features of the artwork.

I do not see it represented in the models though.

And again with the face...   

I won't be picking up all that many from this KS. *Sigh*

From a nice, confident expression to "ugh, so bored"..

However, on the flip side...

 

From an unrealistic impossible jawline that was borderline ugly (but perfectly in line with the thinness of the arms and legs) to a much more believable jawline and angle of the jaw (albeit, with a much more bored facial expression).

 

Sometimes I prefer certain aspects of the artwork. Sometimes I prefer the sculpted version. Often it can be both within the same figure. I'm not entirely sure whether it's the sculptor's preferred style that causes these differences or practicalities of something that's going to be going into a mould. I suspect the sculptor's used to using a lot of flatmodelism for ease of mould creation and that old habits are drifting across to these new digital sculpts.

It sounds like everyone is really excited for this! Worry not, it starts at 3pm eastern time tomorrow. 
 

Despite myself, I am rather excited too. Though with Massive Darkness starting next week, I am not sure how deep I will be going in on this. Will at least get the conquistador...

      Monster Terrain (Monster Fight Club) has fir/pine trees now available, as well as an unpainted and STL option.  The trees look good!
       
      I have their trees from last year and they are second best to Dwarven Forge in terms of quality for plastic trees.

      Return to Planet Apocalypse, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petersengames/return-to-planet-apocalypse?ref=android_project_share
      Yes, Petersen Games is doing a Kickstarter Exclusive again! Just this once! Planet Apocalypse was designed by Sandy Petersen, one of the best-known designers in horror gaming. In the early eighties he wrote the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game for Chaosium. In the nineties, he was a key designer for the ground-breaking video games Doom, Doom 2, and Quake. And in 2015, he released Cthulhu Wars. Now he returns to the topic of apocalyptic horror with a game Shut Up and Sit Down described as "[having] cemented Sandy Petersen as the king of games where you roll dice and things die."
      This Kickstarter offers two separate tabletop experiences:
      The board game (core game reprint) with new expansions. 
      A 325+ role-playing book for 5th edition D&D with TONS of content to bring the apocalypse to your fantasy world, plus new adventures, monsters and more.

      Not figure related, but hopefully of use to folks wanting to generate characters and backstory

      Way over funded and 21 days to go.

      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.
