Talon Mecha HK1 Heavy Armor Units 

The Talon Mecha Paladins units were designed after the huge success of the Anita Severin models. Models went very fast and got an amazing feedback. This is why we hired Anita Severin again, with David Arenas and other sculptors of our team for them to come up with their versions. 

Some of the concepts were commissioned to Falkirt who have done an amazing job for some of them.

  Since 2018 we have completed and delivered over 25 Kickstarters (2 in the works), even when facing some quite harsh situations and the COVID pandemic. We have made over 200 models and shipped close to 100000 models and countless packages.

We are a small company (only me and my wife) working with several professionals to make these models. Sometimes our response rate is not very fast, so please be patient and be assured you will get an answer to your requests.

The Kronos Paladins sons of Uranus, the Titans God. Were the first Talon unit.

Kinda cool, but I'm not sure I'd have much use for making more than a few prints.  Seems a little expensive in my opinion.

I'm skeptical of Heresy's minis after backing one of theirs. The minis, while good looking, were tiny and incredibly thin and fragile. I broke two minis gently washing them under the faucet.

 

Also, on their Fantasy Towers Kickstarter, I saw this comment which makes me skeptical to even try any STLs they do:

 

Quote

Backer: Are these meant to print support free? Do you have pictures of test prints? There isn't much information available.

Quote

Heresey: Sorry didn't have time to print them, they should not require supports to print. The only one we have not look at in deep is the last tower

Quote

Backer: Not sure why you didn't test print these first...you would have noticed that the oriental tower 100% requires supports. There are floating layers everywhere on the edges.

 

There is a huge difference between making a cool 3d model, and making a model that actually prints reliably.

Also remember that 'support free' is largely an FDM thing, there are very few SLA prints that don't need some sort of supports

This project is in an IP dispute.  Not really surprised.

Looking at the pcis again, I'm not surprised either - wow these are rather close to the terminators Games Workshop does for 40k...

I mean, a large percentage of stuff Heresy lab does are essentially alternate sculpts for GW  stuff, so I can see how they may have strayed a little too close to the inspiration.

      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.
