Darklands: Mighty Monsters Part Deux - Fulfilment

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Apr 28, 2017 2:01 pm

DARKLANDS: MIGHTY MONSTERS PART DEUX
FULFILMENT

Waves are gone...
We've decided to remove the "Wave" system, for the simple reason that we just try to get stuff out when we can; it's confusing for us, let alone you guys, so we're just going to give you months instead of waves.

Regardless, we will try to get everything out as soon as we can, but there's a lot to ship - and as always we prioritise orders in date sequence; i.e., if you ordered early, you'll get your stuff sent early.

What we're saying, basically, is - please be patient! We are doing everything as fast as we can without compromising on quality.

Metals will ship at separate times
The metal versions of miniatures (if there are any) will ship at least one wave later than the resin versions; it takes a while to get them ready to be cast in metal.

Now that we're used to working with the external casters we can give you a little idea of what goes on. Usually, it takes at least a month to get the master metal moulds from sending the miniatures to them; and then we must check these masters for errors and then either amend or okay them. Then they go into production, which takes another month.

Whilst we are using metal casters that are second to none in terms of quality, they are so busy it can take a while to get miniatures from them!

What Ships When
Here's an up to date list of what we think will be shipped when.

    SHIPMENT WAVE 0 (complete): Existing miniatures
    SHIPMENT WAVE 22 (June 2018): Bānbreca, Ettenwiht of Lind Combe - Tower Bānbreca, Ettenwiht of Lind Combe with War Tower
    SHIPMENT WAVE 28 (August 2019): Shieldwall Aadolf - Great Cleaver Aadolf
    AUGUST 2020: Konraad's Mob, Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit (Konraad - Maanfrad - Kaarl - Aalric - Ottaa - Fraad - Aarlo) - Kaanrod's Mob, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit (Kaanrod - Fraanko - Kraal - Raalic - Aatto - Graanko - Kraalo) - Schyrós - The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit (Kerberós - Koma - Ýlós)

Items in green will DEFINITELY be sent in that wave as we have them in hand.
Items in yellow italics have been received from the sculptor or printer but not yet moulded. They should be sent in that wave, but it's possible they will slip into the next wave.
Items in italics are in progress and should make it into that wave, but we don't yet have the sculpt or 3d print.
Items not in bold or in italics may still make it into that wave, but may not.


Purchasing Deadlines
There's still time to purchase everything from this project...

    Wave 26 Miniatures: 25th April 2019
    The Rest: until they ship!

Keep watching this list as it may well change - and if you have any issues with the above timings, please let us know and we may well be able to push the deadline back a little for you.
We reserve the right to change any of the above dates without notice.

Sculpts and Sculptors
Here's the big list of who's sculpting what and when for Darklands: New Kindreds! Please bear in mind that this list may change over time, so don't take it as set in stone until the first work in progress shots appear.

We've split the lists into completely new sculpts and alterations to make life easier for us all!

New Sculpts:
    RAFAEL DIOLI: Rafael has completed the The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit, and that's him for this project!
    YANNICK FUSIER: Yannick has completed sculpting the Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit, and after those he will sculpt Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit.
    BOB PŁOCIENNIK: Bob has completed the Leiptrolls and that's it for him, for this project!

Alterations:
    YANNICK FUSIER: Yannick has converted the Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit, just about!

Just three conversions left to do for this project!

Completed Sculpts
We thought this would be a good idea, as things are cracking on - a list of completed sculpts, in kindred order! Completed sculpts are in green bold; in progress sculpts are in yellow italics.

New Sculpts and Alterations:
    ALBAINN: Murcunn - Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit
    ANGLECYNN: Wildeswīn
    ATALANTES: The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit (Kerberós - Koma - Ýlós)
    BRYTHONIAID: N/A
    BYZANTII: N/A
    ÉRAINN: N/A
    FOMORAIC: Shieldwall Aadolf - Great Cleaver Aadolf - Konraad's Mob, Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit (Konraad - Maanfrad - Kaarl - Aalric - Ottaa - Fraad - Aarlo) - Kaanrod's Mob, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit (Kaanrod - Fraanko - Kraal - Raalic - Aatto - Graanko - Kraalo)
    JUTES: Bānbreca - Tower Bānbreca - Capturing Bānbreca
    KHTHONES: Schyrós
    NORSE: Trolls of Vartheim, Leiptroll Unit
    VRAS: N/A
    YSIANS: N/A

Let us know if we've missed anything, of course!

Re: Darklands: Mighty Monsters Part Deux - Fulfilment

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Apr 28, 2017 2:08 pm

This week we have two miniatures to show you, for the Fomoraic and the Jutes, and both are looking like awesome sauce...

AADOLF, OGRAX REIVER TAIN
The excellently named Aadolf is an Ograx Reiver Tain, a big chap who just wants to knock people's blocks off for a living. Who could deny him that?!?

Image
Image
Image
Image

He should be a Wave 18 shipment!

BĀNBRECA, ETTENWIHT OF LIND COMBE
The awesome Bob Płociennik - who, let us not forget, begins work full-time with us next month - has been working very hard on Bānbreca. As you can see, he is looking absolutely superb...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Bānbreca's boot is a little extra that Bob's been working on, and we think it looks pretty cool so we'll be keeping that! A little extra work for you all.

Bear in mind that Tower Bānbreca's left arm will be holding a small axe of course... Bob is basically doing a mix of all three Bānbreca's at the same time! The one you see here is Capturing Bānbreca...

This is what Tower Bānbreca will look like:

Image

We're definitely coming to the conclusion that Bānbreca should be a Wave 18 shipment!

We've a few miniatures to show you this week, for the Fomoraic and the Jutes!

AADOLF, OGRAX REIVER TAIN
Yannick Fusier continues to astound with the amazing Aadolf, an Ograx Reiver Tain for the Fomoraic. This guy is one of our favourite miniatures of recent times!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Still a couple of bits to finish on Aadolf, but he should be a Wave 18 shipment!

KONRAAD'S MOB, OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Following on from Aadolf is a unit of Ograx Reivers also sculpted by Yannick Fusier, Konraad's Mob! Yannick just seems to nail anything monstrous infantry...

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
A hornblower, is Kaarl, and a big fat one at that. He has a lot of breath, and he's going to use it!

Image
Image

BĀNBRECA, ETTENWIHT OF LIND COMBE
Bob's work on Bānbreca has been nothing short of astounding so far, but even we weren't prepared for the awesomeness of the original version...

Image
Image
Image
Image

He should be a Wave 18 shipment!

BĀNBRECA, ETTENWIHT OF LIND COMBE WITH WAR TOWER
The most impressive version of Bānbreca will probably be the one with the War Tower, and we're greedily awaiting the final version with said tower. For now though, here's just Bānbreca, waiting for his tower to be put on and an axe for his hand...

Image
Image
Image
Image

Again, he should be a Wave 18 shipment.

BĀNBRECA, ETTENWIHT OF LIND COMBE WITH CAPTIVE
The last version of Bānbreca is the one with a Captive, who looks suitably terrified. This guy is pretty much done, although you can't purchase it yet!

Image
Image
Image
Image

He should be a Wave 18 shipment... if I allow you lot to buy him at all... ;o)

Two miniatures to show you this week, for the Fomoraic and the Jutes...

KONRAAD'S MOB, OGRAX REIVER UNIT
What was just a blob is now a cracking miniature, thanks to Yannick Fusier...

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl is the herald of the unit and he's got a very long horn indeed. In fact we think it's the longest we've ever seen!

Image
Image
Image
Image

BĀNBRECA, ETTENWIHT OF LIND COMBE WITH WAR TOWER
Bob Płociennik's work on Bānbreca is bloody amazing, but we think he saved the best version till last. Take a bow, Bānbreca with War Tower...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

What an amazing miniature. Don't forget, you get the the Wihtboga on top as part of the deal!

There may be a few changes that need to be made to pole thicknesses and what not, but he's just about done... so he should be a Wave 18 shipment!

Angry Ottaa

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jul 28, 2017 3:19 pm

Just the one miniature this week, but it's a cracker for the Fomoraic...

KONRAAD'S MOB, OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Konraad's Mob gains a warrior of the unit in the rather angry shape of Ottaa... courtesy of Yannick Fusier of course!

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Ottaa is a real basher of enemies, if we're being honest: he's a no-nonsense, no messing about with stove your head in type of Ograx. That's you warned!

Image
Image
Image
Image

We're hoping he, and the rest of his unit, will be a Wave 19 shipment...

Ottaa's Pocket

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Nov 10, 2017 11:29 am

We've two miniatures to show this week, and both are Fomoraic-y and rather ogrish.

KONRAAD'S MOB, OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Konraad's Mob is only two strong at the moment, but they're still awesome for all that... we all wish Yannick Fusier would speed up, but then perhaps he wouldn't produce such awesomeness.

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl - last seen with protruding wires from sculpting - is now done and parted up. Here's his parts...

Image

He really does have the best horn we think we've ever seen in miniature form!

Ottaa, Ograx Reiver Warrior
The lovely Ottaa, whose pocket is often full of ice which then becomes very wet indeed, is now complete - and looks bloody awesome!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

We're hoping these guys will be Wave 20, but Yannick's got three to do yet! Plus, Yannick always does nativity stuff at Christmas, so we shall see.

Konraad of the Mob

Postby Rob Lane » Thu Feb 08, 2018 3:51 pm

Just one miniature to show, and it's all thanks to Yannick finishing up his Christmas-related activities, which sounds a lot more sinister than it should be.

KONRAAD'S MOB, GREAT CLUB OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Konraad's Mob is, of course, the Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit, and Konraad himself gets the treatment this time...

Konraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Gultain
The champion of Konraad's Mob is Konraad, and he has a great big club thing.

Image
Image
Image
Image

I'm making no predictions on when this unit will be done... but I'm hoping they'll be done for the summer. If anyone has any thumbscrews, send them in please!

Turtle Power

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Aug 03, 2018 11:36 am

Just the one miniature to show this week, for the Khthones, but it's a bloody massive and amazing one all the same...

SCHYRÓS, VENERABLE KHELON
Schyrós (pronounced ski-ROHS, making sure you pronounce the s as in salad, not z as in zebra) is the first miniature from the Khelona realm, the realm of the turtles and tortoises and all things chelonian, for the Khthones. Cold-blooded, the Khelona are closely associated with the Sávrar and are often found in their hosts.

Personally we think this is one of Bob's best yet!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

That's a 120mm base... so he is utterly enormous!

Schyrós, we hope, will be an October shipment... but we'll see. There's lots to print before then...

Wild Swine

Postby Rob Lane » Wed Aug 22, 2018 10:31 am

There might only be one miniature to show this week, but it's a bloody great one, even if we do say so ourselves... and for the Anglecynn Eoforas realm, the East Anglians!

WILDESWĪN, CWELLOFOR
The Eoforas will be expanded upon in due course, and for ages there's only been Broḡa; but he's joined by a mighty Cwellofor, a huge boar-beast well able to smash enemy battlelines apart. Here's Wildeswīn!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

That's a 100mm base, that is!

We are very much hoping he'll be a Wave 24 (October) shipment but with our printing schedule that's unlikely now... so he'll be Wave 25 (February), we think.

Konraad's Mob Bumper Update Fun

Postby Rob Lane » Thu Feb 14, 2019 12:29 pm

Two miniatures to show today... the completion of one and the start of another... all for the Fomoraic and the Reivers of the Eye realm (which has a lovely new icon, as you can see).

KONRAAD'S MOB, GREAT CLUB OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Yannick Fusier is still with us, thankfully, because we absolutely adore his work on the Konraad's Mob, Ograx Reiver Unit (as well as Aadolf the Ograx Reiver Tain, in the middle of the pic below) and we believe they are quite simply the best Ogre miniatures ever in the history of the world.

Image

Ever.

Konraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Gultain
The champion of the unit, Konraad, was shown half-done in his latest update...

Image
Image
Image
Image

...but now he's done and he looks utterly superb. He's got a massive chopper, as well!

Maanfrad, Ograx Reiver Tusk-Bearer
The banner bearer, Maanfrad, is not done yet, but here's his concept so you know what he'll look like.

Image

Don't forget his warrior alter-ego, either -

Image

- Fraad! He'll be done once we've cast Maanfrad up.

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl was done a while back and, to be honest, he's got the biggest horn we've ever seen.

Image

Here's the concept of his warrior version:

Image

He'll be called Aarlo! He'll be done once we've cast Kaarl up.

Aalric, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The newest member of the unit, Aalric, is taking shape...

Image
Image
Image

...he's got a big belly for sure!

Ottaa, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Again, Ottaa was done a while back and he's still awesome.

Image

Yannick assures me he can get these done very soon and I very much hope so because I want to give you these awesome Ogre miniatures just as much as you want them!

I'm certainly hopeful of a February shipment.

As for their variants, we'll see what happens when we get them - again, hopeful Yannick can do those conversions very quickly.

Moar Ograx Reivers

Postby Rob Lane » Thu Feb 14, 2019 12:32 pm

Just the one miniature to show today, although we'll show the rest of the unit of Ograx Reivers for completeness and because we love them.

KONRAAD'S MOB, GREAT CLUB OGRAX REIVER UNIT
The lovely Yannick Fusier has been working further on the Konraad's Mob, Ograx Reiver Unit and it is worth stating that We Believe They Are Quite Simply The Best Ogre Miniatures Ever in the history of the world.

Ever.

Konraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Gultain
The champion of the unit, Konraad, is complete.

Image

Look at the size of that chopper!

Maanfrad, Ograx Reiver Tusk-Bearer
The banner bearer, Maanfrad, is not done yet, but here's his concept so you know what he'll look like.

Image

Don't forget his warrior alter-ego, either -

Image

- Fraad! He'll be done once we've cast Maanfrad up.

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl was done a while back and, to be honest, he's got the biggest horn we've ever seen.

Image

Here's the concept of his warrior version:

Image

He'll be called Aarlo! He'll be done once we've cast Kaarl up.

Aalric, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The newest member of the unit, Aalric, is now done!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Look at the size of that fuel tank for a love machine!

Ottaa, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Again, Ottaa was done a while back and he's still awesome.

Image

Yannick assures me he's started Maanfrad, so again I am hopeful they will be done fairly soon. The sticking point will be the alternates of the banner bearer / herald, and of course Shieldwall Aadolf, but I can get the five others (and Aadolf) moulded and cast for those who've ordered just those.

I'm hopeful of a April shipment, but I was hopeful of a February shipment, so we'll see...

What's Next?
Our Bob Płociennik will be sculpting the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit (like the new name?) as well as the Leiptrolls, but Yannick Fusier - once he's completed the alternates of Aadolf and the Ograx Reiver unit - will do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. Uuroch will probably go to Bob as Yannick is... not quick. The results are definitely worth it though...

Mainly Maanfrad

Postby Rob Lane » Tue Mar 19, 2019 11:52 am

One miniature to show off today but as always we'll show the rest of the Ograx Reivers for completeness... and because we utterly adore them all...

KONRAAD'S MOB, GREAT CLUB OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Yannick Fusier may take a while to get stuff done but everything he does is totally worth the wait. The evidence lies with Konraad's Mob, Ograx Reiver Unit. Look!

Konraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Gultain
The champion of the unit, Konraad, is complete.

Image

Look at the size of that chopper!

Maanfrad, Ograx Reiver Tusk-Bearer
Yannick's latest work is Maanfrad, the banner bearer. Predictably, he's bloody awesome too!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

The banner needs to be a little more upright otherwise he'll overbalance; Yannick is sorting that as I type and then he'll be done...

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl was done a while back and, to be honest, he's got the biggest horn we've ever seen.

Image

He's a blower!

Aalric, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The fattest member of the unit, Aalric (and that's saying something), is now done!

Image

Look at the size of that fuel tank for a love machine!

Ottaa, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The awesome Ottaa was done a while back but he's still awesome and worth another view.

Image

That's a big chopper as well!

Fraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Fraad is the alternate warrior of Maanfrad, of course, and Yannick will be doing both him and Aarlo shortly - he only really needs to change the arms and head (if it's changed).

Image

Fraad's head has changed slightly of course...

Aarlo, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Again, Aarlo will be done shortly by giving Kaarl new arms and head... here's his concept:

Image

With Maanfrad done I should think Fraad and Aarlo won't take too long to do; but we've made the decision to allow Yannick to do the other two units - the Shieldwall and Two Club Ograx Reivers - before sending anything to us. He only really has to change the arms and add shields, so that shouldn't take long. It's easier - and quicker - than us casting them up and sending casts back to him, too!

Same with Aadolf too.

So, it's likely these guys will be a June shipment now; which, when all's said and done, means we'll be getting three units rather than one.

That's definitely worth the wait!

What's Next?
Our Bob Płociennik will be sculpting the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit as well as the Leiptrolls, and Yannick Fusier will do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. Uuroch will probably go to Bob as Yannick is... not quick. The results are definitely worth it though...

Great Ax Ograx Easter Special

Postby Rob Lane » Mon Apr 15, 2019 2:41 pm

We'll take the low road with these burly fellows, never short of an ale or three at any one time. All hail the Ograx Reivers!

GREAT CLEAVER AADOLF, OGRAX REIVER TAIN
The lovely Aadolf (you'd forgotten about him, hadn't you?) has been parted up...

Image
Image

...and his other versions will be underway soon!

KONRAAD'S MOB, GREAT CLUB OGRAX REIVER UNIT
As we say many times, Yannick Fusier is an utter genius and we want to clone him so he can work faster. Please, someone invent a cloning machine so he can finish Konraad's Mob, Ograx Reiver Unit and get on with more stuff!

Konraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Gultain
The champion of the unit, Konraad, is complete.

Image
Image

We're showing the finished, cut miniatures today, mainly so that you can see some detail that you haven't seen before...Look at the size of that chopper!

Maanfrad, Ograx Reiver Tusk-Bearer
The banner bearer is Maanfrad...

Image
Image
Image
Image

Yannick has fixed the not-too-upright stance of the haft and he's looking much better.

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl has got the biggest horn we've ever seen.

Image
Image

He's certainly got the horn!

Aalric, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The fattest member of the unit, Aalric (and that's saying something), is now done!

Image
Image

Look at the size of that fuel tank for a love machine!

Ottaa, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The awesome Ottaa was done a while back but he's still awesome and worth another view.

Image
Image

That's a big chopper as well!

Fraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Fraad is the alternate warrior of Maanfrad, of course, and Yannick will be doing both him and Aarlo shortly - he only really needs to change the arms and head (if it's changed).

Image
Image

The axe is done, now for the arms!

Aarlo, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Aarlo is underway, because here's his great club...

Image
Image

Fraad and Aarlo won't take too long to do now; but we've made the decision to allow Yannick to do the other two units - the Shieldwall and Two Club Ograx Reivers - before sending anything to us. He only really has to change the arms and add shields, so that shouldn't take long. It's easier - and quicker - than us casting them up and sending casts back to him, too!

Ograx Alternates

Postby Rob Lane » Mon Apr 29, 2019 11:23 am

Yannick's done two things for us recently - shown us pics of assembled Ograx Reivers, and the two alternates of the banner bearer and herald!

KONRAAD'S MOB, GREAT CLUB OGRAX REIVER UNIT
I know we keep going on about it, but Konraad's Mob, Ograx Reiver Unit is brilliant... and if you're bored of them, this is the last update for them on this project, because the shieldwall / two club variants are part of a different project. So you can rejoice!

Image
From left to right, back row: Maanfrad, Aadolf, Aalric, front row: Kaarl, Konraad, Ottaa

Konraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Gultain
The champion of the unit is Konraad and he looks positively murderous.

Image

He's a chunky fellow!

Maanfrad, Ograx Reiver Tusk-Bearer
The banner bearer is Maanfrad...

Image

Yannick has fixed the not-too-upright stance of the haft and he's looking much better.

Kaarl, Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Kaarl has got the biggest horn we've ever seen.

Image

He's certainly got the horn!

Aalric, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The fattest member of the unit, Aalric (and that's saying something), is now done!

Image

Look at the size of that fuel tank for a love machine!

Ottaa, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
The awesome Ottaa was done a while back but he's still awesome and worth another view.

Image

That's a big chopper as well!

Fraad, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Fraad is the alternate warrior of Maanfrad...

Image
Image
Image
Image

...and he's done! And very angry, clearly.

Aarlo, Great Club Ograx Reiver Warrior
Aarlo is also completed, and that means the Great Club unit is now done.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Yannick will be doing the other two units - the Shieldwall and Two Club Ograx Reivers - before sending anything to us. He only really has to change the arms and add shields, so that shouldn't take long. It's easier - and quicker - than us casting them up and sending casts back to him, too!

Our Bob Płociennik will be sculpting the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit as well as the Leiptrolls, and Yannick Fusier will do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. Uuroch will probably go to Bob as Yannick is... not quick. The results are definitely worth it though...

Atlantic Shieldwall Aadolf

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jun 28, 2019 1:12 pm

Just the one Fomoraic miniature to show you, like last time, but he is awesome... so you'll forgive us we're sure.

SHIELDWALL AADOLF, OGRAX REIVER TAIN
Yannick Fusier's Shieldwall Aadolf is a cracking example of using as much scrap metal as you can find to make a shield and a weapon at the same time.

Absolutely brilliant from Yannick, as always; and he should be an October shipment as we'll be getting him before the units.

What's Next
Yannick will do the fully-armoured Haakon and the Ograx of Baalor; and Bob will be digitally sculpting the rest - Rikkaard in his various guises, and the Mammax...

The Lightning Trolls

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Mar 06, 2020 11:14 am

The Norse get themselves a lovely little update today thanks to Bob's ministrations!

TROLLS OF VARTHEIM, LEIPTROLL UNIT
It's early days for these guys but the Leiptrolls is are showing progress with one miniature out of five done. Sadly Bob's on holiday now for a couple of weeks so we won't see them finished until well into March, but they're looking good so far...

Uggr, Leiptroll Warrior
Bob's started on the warrior known as Uggr, which rhymes with something else...

Image
Image

...that we can't quite put our finger on.

What's Next?
We've decided that Rafael Dioli will take over the Atalantes sculpts and he'll do the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit. If Yannick Fusier is still alive he'll do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. That means it's nearly the end for this project!

More Lightning, and Shielded Ograx

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Apr 17, 2020 10:22 am

The Norse get themselves a lovely little update today thanks to Bob's ministrations!

TROLLS OF VARTHEIM, LEIPTROLL UNIT
Bob Plociennik's been working extra hard on the Leiptrolls is and they are now all done and dusted! Wowser! Gratuitous group shot alert:

Image

Ohgir, Leiptroll Kappi
The champion of the unit is Ohgir...

Image
Image

...Ohgir, Ohgir, Oi! Oi! Oi! Sadly only people of my age will get that, but still.

Uggr, Leiptroll Warrior
The first warrior of the unit is Uggr...

Image
Image

...he's been shown before, but here he is again!

Tórmond, Leiptroll Warrior
Another warrior, is Tórmond...

Image
Image

He's reaching for something...

Anda, Leiptroll Warrior
Anda, another warrior...

Image
Image

...has clearly just stepped on some lego!

Mullo, Leiptroll Warrior
The last warrior of the unit is Anda!

Image
Image

Now these guys will form the basis of a Hálftroll Unit, at some point...

size=150]KAANROD'S MOB, SHIELDWALL OGRAX REIVER UNIT[/size]
Rejoice, everyone, for Yannick Fusier is not dead! Hurrah! That means he can continue to work his wondrous magical skills on Kaanrod's Mob, the Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit! He's only got three converted so far, but they're awesome...

Image

Raalic, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
Raalic is the Shieldwall version of Aalric, of course...

Image
Image
Image
Image

...he's definitely an angry Ograx!

Graanko, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
Raalic, a southpaw, is the alternate warrior version of the banner bearer, which is basically Maanfraad...

Image
Image
Image
Image

...he's fat, that's for sure. But then, aren't all Ograx?

Kraalo, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
The lovely Kraalo is the alternate warrior of the herald, Kaarl...

Image
Image
Image
Image

Now Yannick assures me two more of these guys will be sorted soon, so that's pretty much the Shieldwall guys done; then it's the two club variants, which shouldn't take too long at all...

What's Next?
We've decided that Rafael Dioli will take over the Atalantes sculpts and he'll do the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit. Yannick Fusier will do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. That means it's nearly the end for this project!

Doggies and Oggies

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Apr 17, 2020 11:16 am

It's the Atalantes first, and some lovely bronze things...

THE SENTINELS, KERBEROKOLOSSOS UNIT
With Duncan Louca moving on to other projects, we've decided Rafael Dioli can take over his Atalantes slot and he's begun work on The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit. So far it's just a t-pose, and it's certainly not right, but it's getting there!

Image

There'll be more from Rafael next time, we're sure...

KAANROD'S MOB, SHIELDWALL OGRAX REIVER UNIT
Yannick Fusier being alive and working means some awesome things are happening over in his corner of France: Kaanrod's Mob, the Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit is now just about finished, with just a shield to go on the back of the banner bearer and herald!

Kaanrod, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Gultain
Kaanrod is the champion of the unit and gives it his name.

Image
Image
Image
Image

He looks superb!

Fraanko, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Tusk-Bearer
Fraanko is basically Maanfrad with a shield on his back...

Image

...with Graanko's shield, or maybe a new one, I'm not sure...

Kaarl, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Hornblower
Again, Kraal is basically Kaarl with a shield on his back...

Image

...like that. He'll probably have Kraalo's shield.

Raalic, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
We've seen Raalic of course, last time...

Image

...but we love his big belly so here he is again!

Aatto, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
We haven't seen Aatto yet!

Image
Image
Image

He looks amazing too! And rather angry...

Graanko, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
We saw Graanko last time...

Image

...but he's worth another view for sure.

Kraalo, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Warrior
Now Kraalo was also shown last time...

Image

...but it wouldn't be right not to show him again!

So these guys are just about done and we reckon we'll be getting our hands on the three Ograx Reiver units in May. We're going to turn these guys around as quick as we can so we're hopeful of a June shipment, too!

What's Next?
Rafael Dioli has begun work on the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit and Yannick Fusier will do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. That means it's nearly the end for this project!

Bronzo Dog Doo-Dahs

Postby Rob Lane » Fri May 15, 2020 9:40 am

We have some lovely Atalantes to show off this time around!

THE SENTINELS, KERBEROKOLOSSOS UNIT
To re-iterate: with Duncan Louca moving on to other projects, we've decided Rafael Dioli will take over his Atalantes slot and he's first work for that kindred - The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit - looks bloody awesome! Remember, these guys are on 60mm bases so are pretty damn big...

Kerberós, Kerberokolossos
The champion of the unit is Kerberós, of course...

Image

Rearing and so forth, he will be a fearsome opponent!

Koma, Kerberokolossos
The second member of the unit is Koma...

Image

Poised to strike, he will certainly come keen - those are bronze teeth!

Ýlós, Kerberokolossos
Ýlós is the last warrior of The Sentinels...

Image

...so named as they are - when not used for war - guardians of the various temples and royal buildings of the Atalantes...

We're planning on getting these guys - along with Athena and Kretos Beta - sorted for an August release, along the lines of the recent ones. In other words, there'll be something else for the Atalantes with them...

What's Next?
Rafael Dioli has finished the Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit and Yannick Fusier will do Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit. That means it's nearly the end for this project!
