Darklands: Savage Hordes - Fulfilment

Postby Rob Lane » Fri May 12, 2017 10:20 am

DARKLANDS: SAVAGE HORDES
FULFILMENT

Wave 21 and 22 shipments are underway
Wave 21 is ongoing and Wave 22 will begin shortly. 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!

There's only one miniature to show this week, but it's a cracker and it nicely finishes off the Jutes from this project. All thanks to Bob Płociennik, who now works for us full time!

GARRIC, JUTE FAIN BEARER
No, not Garlic... ! He is of course the Jute host banner bearer and a lovely fella to boot. Bob's captured his flowing locks rather well, we think!

Image
Image
Image

He's a cracker and should be a Wave 17 shipment!

Tails that are Fat

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jun 02, 2017 11:27 am

Work on this project continues behind the scenes; Martin Lavat is currently working on lots of things, but we've had no update as yet. Here's Tim Prow's efforts for us...

NO-CLAW'S BURROW, SPEAR-VRAS UNIT
Quite the most amazing looking rat-men we've ever seen, No-Claw's Burrow is finally complete...

Fat-Tail, Spear-Vras warrior
The drummer, Fat-Skin, now has an alternate warrior version in Fat-Tail. We make no apologies for puerile naming.

Image
Image

He's a cracker and should be a Wave 17 shipment!

Ravens and Ballista

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jun 30, 2017 12:30 pm

The lovely Bob Płociennik has begun work on the superb Ballista for the Byzantii, and it is looking superb, too...

TOR I ITALUS, AUXILIA BALLISTARIUS TORMENTUM
Tor I Italus - meaning "First Tormentum, Italus" is Darklands' very first war engine unit, and it's looking amazing so far. After the Ballista itself come the crew!

Bal I Italus, Ballista
The Byzantii Ballistae can vary in size from just a two-man crew or bloody huge, and Bal I Italus is somewhere in between. It's been sculpted superbly by Bob Płociennik of course!

Image
Image
Image

That's an 80mm base, by the way. So it's pretty big anyway!
We're hoping the whole war engine and crew will be a Wave 18 shipment, but we'll see...

HRAFNAR OF STAFANGR, HRAFN UNIT
Bob's also been hard at work on these little fellers - the Hrafnar of Stafangr, a unit of ravens, basically!

Image
Image

Here you can see their size next to a human...

Image

We'll probably have to thicken up their legs, but other than that, these guys are done and on course for Wave 18.

Engines, Metals, Lady

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jul 14, 2017 1:55 pm

We have metals for the Jutes, war engines for the Byzantii and a lady for the Norse. Wowser!

TOR I ITALUS, AUXILIA BALLISTARIUS TORMENTUM
Mr Bob Płociennik has been working hard on the Ballista and has come up trumps yet again, having completed the non-organic bits.

Bal I Italus, Ballista
The ballista and ammunition types are now done, plus two types of brazier. Aren't you lot lucky! Garric is there for size comparison purposes.

Image
from left to right: Murii (rocks), Shot (lead shot), braziers for Malleolus (fire bolts)

Image
Sagittae (bolts) on the far left

Image

We're hoping this will be a Wave 18 shipment, but with printing necessary and the crew not yet done, it's likely this will be a Wave 19...

EORMANRÆD, CANT FORTHAIN
Here we have Eormanræd in metal... finally!

Image

He'll be a Wave 18 shipment.

HELDRED, DRĒAGUTH THEGN
Heldred has also got the metal treatment, bless him...

Image

Once again, he'll be a Wave 18 shipment.

THE SINNERS OF CHESSELL BARROW, WIHTBOGA UNIT
It's taken its sweet time to arrive, but the Wihtboga are finally in metal... and you can see Archer Mildryth in there, too.

Image

They will be a Wave 18 shipment!

THE BETRAYERS OF CEAFOR BARROW, WIHTAX UNIT
Along with the Wihtboga come the Wihtax, and they are looking very spiffing in the flesh... or the metal, we should say...

Image

Again, they will be a Wave 18 shipment.

Next up for metals from this project are the Elbharu and the Oghurithne Hunters... plus associated Albainn nobles...

ARCHER BIRNA, DOTTIR OF HRAFNEN
Martin Lavat has worked his magic upon Archer Birna, for she is looking superb...

Image
Image
Image
Image

She should be a Wave 18 shipment, although the quiver needs doing of course...

Ballistaz

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Aug 25, 2017 12:29 pm

We have news on Albainn metals and Khthones sculptors, whoop whoop, in the update on the forums; but the wips are here, and are for the Byzantii...

TOR I ITALUS, AUXILIA BALLISTARIUS TORMENTUM
Bob Płociennik - fresh from working on our cancelled project, Darkholds - has turned his attention back to the Ballista. Now it's time for the crew!

Italus, Auxilia Ballistarius Decanus
The commander of the Ballista is, of course, ballista; he's a Ballistarius Decanus, and looks like he knows the business end of a pointy stick!

Image
Image

We're very much hoping these guys will be Wave 19, but we'll see.

Re: Darklands: Savage Hordes - Fulfilment

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Sep 29, 2017 2:07 pm

There's stuff for the Byzantii this week, and lots of stuff for the Khthones, too...

TOR I ITALUS, AUXILIA BALLISTARIUS TORMENTUM
The Ballista war engine known as Tor I Italus (to decode: First Tormentum of Italus) is now complete, thanks to the awesome skills of Bob Płociennik.

Image
Image

It really looks awesome!

Italus, Auxilia Ballistarius Decanus
He's been done for a while of course, but here's Italus again...

Image

He's an excellent Decanus...

Aigidius, Auxilia Ballistarius Warrior
Aigidius , a crewman, pulls those levers like his life depends on it.

Image

Which it probably does...

Elianus, Auxilia Ballistarius Warrior
The other lever-puller is Elianus.

Image

He's not quite as good at pulling levers as Aigidius, but he's happy in himself, and that's the main thing.

Verus, Auxilia Ballistarius Warrior
Verus carries the ammunition back and forth...

Image

...which is back-breaking work, but he's happy he's not pulling levers for a living... (this is not the finished Verus - he's on the top picture with the whole unit).

Bal i Italus, Ballista
The Ballista itself is called Bal I Italus.

Image

(Garric is just a size example) The whole shebang should be a Wave 20 thing...

GUKKOK'S BLADES, SÁVRAR UNIT
We've decided to get Bob Płociennik to sculpted the Gukkok's Blades, Sávrar Unit, and - rather predictably - they look bloody awesome.

Gukkok, Sávrar Champion
The champion of the unit is Gukkok, and he is mighty fighty...

Image
Image

He's not quite finished - the teeth are too small, the tail is too long and the fins need to be thicker - but he's getting there...

Kliss, Sávrar Banner Bearer
The banner bearer is Kliss, and he looks awesome!

Image
Image

We're hoping these guys will be Wave 20, and knowing Bob's speed, we reckon that's possible...

FIREKIN, SZALAMANDRA UNIT
The Firekin - also taken over by Bob Płociennik - are the Szalamandra unit, on 60mm bases, for the Khthones...

Ignilak, Szalamandra of Thrakkia
Ignilak is the champion of the unit, probably the oldest and most experienced!

Image
Image
Image
Image

He's looking excellent...

Sikkak, Szalamandra of Thrakkia
The second Szalamandra is Sikkak...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

...he seems to be looking for victims to gob fire onto!

Kkigni, Szalamandra of Thrakkia
The last member of the unit is Kkigni...

Image
Image
Image
Image

We're very much hoping these guys will be Wave 20...

HRAFNEN BOWMEN, HOLUMANN BOWMAN UNIT
Some of you may be aware, thanks to participating in Darklands: Savage Hordes IV, that the Norse Holumenn are being resculpted. Well, that also includes the Holumenn Bowmen - it would make no sense to convert the existing Holumenn if they're being resculpted, and whilst this will lead to a delay, we do believe the results will far outweight that disappointment.

Watch out for those soon!

Khthones Ahoy

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Oct 13, 2017 1:25 pm

We've twelve miniatures to show you today, and all for the Khthones, and all digitally sculpted by Bob Płociennik. Awesome!

GUKKOK'S BLADES, SÁVRAR UNIT
The Sávrar unit with blade and shield are Gukkok's Blades, Sávrar Unit, and they're now awesomely complete thanks to Bob's ministrations.

Gukkok, Sávrar Champion
The champion is Gukkok; he's changed a fair bit since the last time you saw him, so here he is in his new form...

Image
Image

The blade is bigger and longer, and his crests are thicker...

Kliss, Sávrar Banner Bearer
The banner bearer, Kliss, has also changed a bit since last time...

Image
Image

The blade is bigger and longer, and his crests are thicker...

Esko, Sávrar Herald
The herald of the unit is Esko...

Image
Image

...he loves drumming, he does!

Ikki, Sávrar Warrior
A lowly warrior, is Ikki...

Image
Image

...but he'll happily chop you to pieces anyway. That makes him a Happy Chopper.

Brakka, Sávrar Warrior
The other warrior of the unit is Brakka...

Image
Image

...he likes cooking people he's killed, sort of like a Little Chef.

Kikik, Sávrar Warrior
The alternate of the banner bearer is Kikik...

Image
Image

...can he Kikik? Yes he can...

Skokk, Sávrar Warrior
The alternate of the herald is Skokk...

Image
Image

We're very much hoping Gukkok's Blades will be a Wave 19 shipment!

GUKK'S JAVELINS, SÁVRAKONTAR UNIT
The alternate, support version of Gukkok's Blades are Gukk's Javelins - Sávrakontar, Sávrar armed with Akonta, javelins basically. Sculpted by Bob of course!

Gukk, Sávrakontar Champion
The unit champion is Gukk, who loves a bit of darting.

Image
Image

He also loves fishing...

Ikkliss, Sávrakontar Warrior
Ikkliss is a javelin warrior dude...

Image
Image

The blade is bigger and longer, and his crests are thicker...

Skoss, Sávrakontar Warrior
Another javelin warrior, Skoss has an excellent eye...

Image
Image

...although that sword looks handy, too...

Kki, Sávrakontar Warrior
Javelin-throwing is a handy skill for Kki...

Image
Image

...he has no trouble finding the hearts of his enemies.

Akka, Sávrakontar Warrior
The last warrior of the unit is Akka...

Image
Image

The whole unit should be a Wave 19 shipment...

More Sávrar Joy

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Oct 27, 2017 2:50 pm

Remember those Sávrar from last time? Well, you guys weren't satisfied with their variety (although you must all bear in mind these things were genetically engineered by the Atalantes, so they should be very similar) so we tasked Bob Płociennik to give them a little variety. We do listen. Sometimes...

...and there's also three versions of an existing Sávrar commander from Bob, which you can now find in the Savage Hordes Kickstarter category on our webstore. Ace!

EIKOVRA, IKON WARRIOR
The old Eikovra is looking tired now, next to the new Sávrar, so we decided to get Bob to resculpt him - and as there'll be another two versions, of course. Here he is in his Ikon Warrior glory...

Image
Image

He should be a Wave 20 shipment!

EIKOVRA, SUN WARRIOR
The warrior version of Eikovra is called a Sun Warrior, and he is looking very nice indeed...

Image
Image

Again, he'll be a Wave 20 shipment!

AKONTAR EIKOVRA, SUN WARRIOR
The Sávrakontar need a commander, too, so here's Akontar Eikovra to fill that slot!

Image
Image

Another Wave 20 shipment!

GUKKOK'S BLADES, SÁVRAR UNIT
The Sávrar unit with blade and shield are Gukkok's Blades, and they're now looking utterly superb thanks to Bob - and your criticism!

Gukkok, Sávrarkh
The Champion, or Sávrarkh (which is different to a Sávrarch, before you ask), is Gukkok...

Image
Image

...he looks rather vicious!

Kliss, Sávrar Ikon Bearer
The banner bearer, or Ikon Bearer, of the unit is Kliss...

Image

...we love his cuddly lizard icon, but he'll still stab you soon as look at you.

Esko, Sávrar Beater
The herald of the unit is Esko, a Sávrar Beater...

Image
Image

...see that face on the beat-stick? That's your face, that is... it must be petrified somehow, or perhaps at the start of the session, because we don't think your face will last that long as a beat-stick, to be honest.

Ikki, Sávrar Warrior
The first warrior of the unit is Ikki...

Image
Image

...ten points for spotting the changes from last time...

Brakka, Sávrar Warrior
The second warrior is called Brakka...

Image
Image

...we were going to call him Dakka, but that would be silly.

Kikik, Sávrar Warrior
The fourth warrior is Kikik...

Image
Image

...he's the alternate of the Ikon Bearer, of course...

Skokk, Sávrar Warrior
Here's the fourth warrior, Skokk, the alternate of the beat-stick fella...

Image
Image

Gukkok's Blades should be a Wave 20 shipment!

GUKK'S JAVELINS, SÁVRAKONTAR UNIT
Now here we have the support unit for the Sávrar, the Gukk's Javelins, Sávrakontar Unit, modelled on Gukkok's Blades of course by the lovely Bob Płociennik!

Gukk, Sávrakontarkh
The champion of the unit is Gukk...

Image
Image

...a Sávrakontarkh, no less...

Ikkliss, Sávrakontar Warrior
The first warrior of the unit is Ikkliss...

Image
Image

...he likes to stick people with his pointy sticks!

Skoss, Sávrakontar Warrior
The next Sávrakontar warrior is Skoss...

Image
Image

...sounds a bit like a Shetland Island, but he isn't... er, an island.

Kki, Sávrakontar Warrior
Another Sávrakontar warrior. Here's the brevitically-named Kki!

Image
Image

Yes, that is a word. Brevitically, we mean.

Akka, Sávrakontar Warrior
The last Sávrakontar warrior is Akka, related to Brakka and Dakka.

Image
Image

These guys should be a Wave 20 shipment!

Werwulfas that Hunt

Postby Rob Lane » Thu Nov 23, 2017 2:53 pm

There's two Anglecynn miniatures to show off today, although (technically speaking) you can make five different ones from those two on show. See below for details...!

SIGEWULF'S PACK, WERWULF HUNTER UNIT
Sigewulf's Pack introduced a new type of Werwulf to the Anglecynn, the Werwulf Hunter - basically the Werwulfas armed with bows. Originally we were simply going to convert the original Werwulfas, and then Bob Płociennik came along and then we Had Some More Thoughts...

Sigewulf, Frēawerwulf Hunter
The champion of the unit is Sigewulf - a Frēawerwulf Hunter, or Great Werwulf Hunter. Bob's work on him is nothing short of astounding, we think you'll agree...

Image
Image
Image
Image

Bob's working on the rest of the unit of course, and they should be done in time for Wave 20... we hope!

EORIC'S PACK, WERWULF UNIT
With Sigewulf being effing brilliant, we then decided to get Bob to resculpt Eoric's Pack - which is what Sigewulf's Pack were based upon - at the same time and to save time, if you know what we mean. Starting with Eoric...

Eoric, Frēawerwulf
Another champion, Eoric is a Frēawerwulf, a Great Werwulf, and he is utterly, utterly stupendous - especially when we tell you he (and all the Werwulfas) will come in four flavours... sword and claw, sword and shield, spear and claw and spear and shield, thanks to the new kindred musters. You'll get all four variants in the same pack, please note. How utterly amazing is that?

Here's sword and claw Eoric...

Image
Image

Sword and shield Eoric...

Image

Spear and claw Eoric...

Image

Spear and shield Eoric...

Image

Again, we're hoping Eoric's Pack will be done for Wave 20.

I WANT THE NEW EORIC'S PACK!
Well, you can get them - we've popped them up for sale in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category, right here:

- Darklands: Savage Hordes - Eoric's Pack

Grab them now because they won't be there for long - these guys should be done for Wave 20!

Werwulf Progress

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Dec 08, 2017 2:06 pm

It's the Werwulf Show this week with both Eoric's Pack and Sigewulf's Pack - both of the Anglecynn - getting nearer to completion...

SIGEWULF'S PACK, WERWULF HUNTER UNIT
The Werwulf Hunter unit is looking absolutely superb right now. Bob is working wonders on these guys!

Acca, Thēotenwerwulf Hunter
Acca is a cracking miniature, based on Sigebald of Eoric's Pack of course...

Image
Image

The arrows need a little more detail but other than that he's pretty much sorted...

Osulf, Werwulf Hunter Warrior
Osulf is based on the herald from Eoric's Pack...

Image
Image

Again, the arrows need a little work but that's it. We're hoping all of these guys will make it into Wave 20...

EORIC'S PACK, WERWULF UNIT
The original and still the best, Eoric's Pack is the Werwulf Unit that Sigewulf's Pack is based upon. Each warrior from Eoric's Pack will have sword and claw, spear and claw, sword and shield and spear and shield options (regardless of what you can see here).

Sigebald, Monewerwulf
The fantastic Sigebald is looking utterly superb in his new form. The banner is just amazing. The haft may need to be a little thicker to support the banner's weight, please note.

Image
Image

To see how he'd look with spear, see Siweard (his warrior alternate). Obviously the shield won't be there in the claw versions...

Heoruvard, Thēotenwerwulf
The herald of the unit is Heoruvard, and he howls whether it's a full moon or not...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

All four versions shown here...

Siweard, Thēotenwerwulf
Siweard is the alternate of Sigebald the banner bearer. The warrior version!

Image
Image
Image
Image

At this speed, Eoric's Pack will be ready for Wave 20... but we'll see.

I WANT THE NEW EORIC'S PACK!
Well, you can get them - we've popped them up for sale in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category, right here:

- Darklands: Savage Hordes - Eoric's Pack

Grab them now because they won't be there for long - these guys should be done for Wave 20!

Jingle Bells, Eoric Smells, Sigewulf Ate Mince Pies...

Postby Rob Lane » Thu Dec 21, 2017 1:53 pm

A quick reprise before we crack on with images. Sigewulf's Pack is the unit that was introduced in this project, alternates of Eoric's Pack of course; and when we got around to doing them we decided to make them better by getting Bob Płociennik to sculpt them digitally.

To cut a long story short, we then decided we might as well get Eoric's Pack done at the same time, because we weren't happy with the original miniatures at all... enter Bob, stage left, cacking madly...

...and next for Bob are the Holumenn Bowmen and the Holumenn, of course... and then the Gorgóraxo. Let's get Savage Hordes done!

SIGEWULF'S PACK, WERWULF HUNTER UNIT
The Werwulf Hunter unit known as Sigewulf's Pack is now complete, so we're going to show you all of them. Bob's finished off a few details from those you've seen before, anyway...

Sigewulf, Frēawerwulf Hunter
The champion of the Werwulf Hunters is Sigewulf...

Image
Image

...Sigewulf quaffs Babycham at Christmas. No, really.

Acca, Werwulf Hunter Warrior
The first warrior of the unit is Acca...

Image
Image

...he doesn't really like pigs in blankets, but he'll devour bacon and sausages separately. Weird.

Osulf, Werwulf Hunter Warrior
Osulf is another Werwulf Hunter warrior of Sigewulf's Pack...

Image
Image

Eggnog is Osulf's favourite, this time of year.

Dunwulf, Werwulf Hunter Warrior
The Werwulf Hunter known as Dunwulf is a cracking miniature, full of movement...

Image
Image

...just like his bowels after eating left-over turkey sandwiches five days after Boxing Day.

Behrtmaer, Werwulf Hunter Warrior
The last warrior of Sigewulf's Pack is Behrtmaer, and he loves wolfing (hehe) down his Christmas Dinner and then sitting down to watch the Queen's Speech and the Bond film, in that order.

Image
Image

Sigewulf's Pack, we're hoping, will be a Wave 20 unit... but we'll see.

EORIC'S PACK, WERWULF UNIT
With the decision to resculpt Eoric's Pack made, Bob (rather predictably) knocked these guys for a six and a home run, a cross-sport mash-up that only bat-wielding sports lovers could understand.

Remember, each member of Eoric's Pack will contain enough components to create one of the following variants: sword only, spear only, sword and shield and spear and shield...

Eoric, Frēawerwulf
Eoric gives his unit its name and so, of course, he is its champion...

With sword...

Image
Image

With spear...

Image

Eoric is the boss, so he gets first dibs on the turkey breast.

Sigebald, Monewerwulf
The banner bearer of Eoric's Pack is Sigebald... only the sword variant is shown, but he does get the spear option of course.

Image
Image

There's just one thing that gets Sigebald eating his Chrimbo dinner, and that's nice thick gravy...

Heoruvard, Thēotenwerwulf
The herald of the unit is Heoruvard, and he's a howler wulf...

With sword...

Image
Image

With spear...

Image

Heoruvard doesn't like Christmas pudding, sadly.

Rædwulf, Werwulf Warrior
A warrior of the unit, is Rædwulf...

With sword...

Image
Image

With spear...

Image

Now Rædwulf, he loves brussel sprouts, so don't sit anywhere near him after dinner.

Wealdhere, Werwulf Warrior
The last member of the unit is Wealdhere, a fine figure of a werwulf...

With sword...

Image
Image

With spear...

Image

As you can see, he loves a bit of blood for his pud...

Siweard, Werwulf Warrior
The alternate warrior of the banner bearer is Siweard, and he loves milk and mince pies at Christmas.

With sword...

Image
Image

With spear...

Image

Eoric's Pack should be ready for Wave 20, but we do have a lot to print so they may not make it so quickly. We shall see...

I WANT THE NEW EORIC'S PACK!
Well, you can get them - we've popped them up for sale in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category, right here:

- Darklands: Savage Hordes - Eoric's Pack

Grab them now because they won't be there for long - these guys should be done for Wave 20!

Bowmen of the Holumann Type

Postby Rob Lane » Thu Feb 08, 2018 2:57 pm

In a similar manner to the Werwulf Hunters and the Werwulfas, the Holumenn Bowmen gave us A Problem, because - frankly - the original Holumenn weren't much cop. Again, enter Bob Płociennik, stage left, cackling madly, because when he started working for us we realised that the Holumenn Bowmen wouldn't be A Problem any more because he could kill those two stones with one bird. Wait, that's not right...

Anyway, Bob doing the Holumenn Bowmen means he can also resculpt the Holumenn - which he is doing right now; with the Gorgóraxo next and Stéphane Camosseto beginning work on the Ceorl Freemen, Darklands: Savage Hordes is almost complete.

HRAFNEN BOWMEN, HOLUMANN BOWMAN UNIT
The Hrafnen Bowmen are progressing at pace thanks to Bob's ministrations, with two miniatures already done and the third underway...

Logmar, Holumann Bowman Kappi
The champion of the unit is known as Logmar, and he loves shooting things whilst standing on skulls.

Image
Image

That left leg will shift over like the Holumann champion's left leg, it's just that Bob hasn't had time to give me that image.

Folki Svensson, Holumann Bowman Warrior
Folki Svensson is of course the banner bearer's alternate, so we'll mess with the legs (so he doesn't look like he's had a runny trump) before he's finished I reckon.

Image
Image

The unit - we're very much hoping - will be ready for Wave 21...

Holumann + Bow = Holumann Bowman

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Feb 23, 2018 2:39 pm

Just the five miniatures to show this week - all for the Norse!

HRAFNEN BOWMEN, HOLUMANN BOWMAN UNIT
The Hrafnen Bowmen are now done! Huzzah! Bob's sterling work for these guys means they're going to be blimmin' awesome, and no mistake!

Logmar, Holumann Bowman Kappi
The champion - Logmar - has been seen before, of course, but here's a reprise...

Image

You'll get a pile of skulls and a tree stump for him to stand on (see the Vidkun the Brave in the Darklands: Savage Hordes IV update later today). Then it's your choice!

Folki Svensson, Holumann Bowman Warrior
The ex-banner-bearer, Folki Svensson, now has different legs...

Image

...because the old ones made him look like he was on the toilet standing up. A bit.

Alvíss, Holumann Bowman Warrior
Now the ones you've not seen yet - here's Alvíss...

Image
Image

...named after Alvis the awesome car makers, of course. Well, once-car-makers.

Bjorn, Holumann Bowman Warrior
Another warrior, Bjorn is not a member of ABBA.

Image
Image

Well, a different Bjorn was!

Haraldr, Holumann Bowman Warrior
The last warrior of the unit is Haraldr - our favourite!

Image
Image

These guys will be a Wave 21 shipment (in resin, anyway)...!

A Birdy Wizard, Some Hurty Snakes and Some Shooty Snakes

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Mar 09, 2018 12:19 pm

We have some Awesome Things for you this week and no mistake. We have a fantastic resculpt for the Norse and an amazing set of reworkings and a superb set of conversions for the Khthones!

With the miniatures shown today done, that just leaves the Ceorl Freemen for this project, amazingly - and Stéphane Camosseto is already working on them...

BRYNHILD GUNNBLINDI, GYTHJA OF HRAFNENT
With the completion of the Hrafnen Bowmen recently and the Hrafnar a while back, we had another look at the Holumann Bowman Support Host which included Birna and Brynhild the raven-wizard. With Birna soon to be resculpted, Brynhild got all jealous and petulant, so we gave in and handed Bob another resculpt.

Here's the new Brynhild Gunnblindi - Brynhild Battle-Blinder - for the Norse!

Image
Image
Image

She'll come with two head options, with raven-hat (for want of a better term) or fancy free and footloose, i.e., without raven-hat. We spoil you lot!

Image

You can pre-order her in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category:

Brynhild Gunnblindi, Gythja of Hrafnen (metal)
Brynhild Gunnblindi, Gythja of Hrafnen (resin)

Now, if you ordered her as part of the Holumann Bowmen host and haven't received her, you'll receive the new one without having to purchase her. If you've not got her, go get her now!

She should be a Wave 22 shipment in resin, Wave 23 in metal! We've tons of things to print and sort before her and it would be unwise to give improper dates.

DAWN OF KHTHON, GORGÓRAR UNIT
With Bob converting the Gorgórar into Gorgóraxo (giving them bows) we thought it would be time to correct a few things on the original Dawn of Khthon sculpts - namely, thickening up the spear hafts, sorting out a few errant flappy things that just got in the way of casting and making sure the tails fit properly into a 50mm base as we just weren't satisfied with the physical moulds.

These Reworked Gorgórar are available for pre-order in the Savage Hordes category, of course:

Dawn of Khthon, Gorgórar Unit (metal)
Dawn of Khthon, Gorgórar Unit (resin)

Again, if there are any Gorgórar in our orders that haven't yet been sent, unless you state otherwise we'll send out what we have until these guys are printed and moulded and cast. So say something to us if that's the case!

Myrinna, Avenger of Khthon
The champion of the unit is Myrinna...

Image

...her haft has been thickened!

Syntyss, Seed of Khthon
The banner bearer is Syntyss...

Image

...we fixed her tail and thickened her haft up real nice.

Thillia, Portent of Khthon
Thillia of the Thickened Haft is the herald of the unit...

Image

...you can tell by the rattler on her tail end. Oo-er.

Phyllidii, Gorgórar of Khthon
A standard warrior, is Phyllidii...

Image

...and again, we fixed up her tail and thickened her spear haft.

Elthissi, Gorgórar of Khthon
Elthissi. Another standard warrior.

Image

Haft Thickened. Tail Sorted. Flappy Things Now Unflappy.

Tyssia, Gorgórar of Khthon
Tyssia is the warrior version of Syntyss.

Image

She's sorted now too.

Lithil, Gorgórar of Khthon
Lithil is the warrior version of Thillia.

Image

Again, these guys will probably be Wave 22 to be honest - we've tons to print before then. They'll be in metal for Wave 23, we hope.

STORM OF KHTHON, GORGÓRAXO UNIT
Now the Gorgóraxo are bow-armed versions of the Gorgórar, and they've turned out rather well, we think! All thanks to Bob of course!

Yrinna, Harrier of Khthon
The champion of the unit is Yrinna...

Image
Image

...she has to be careful she doesn't get her tail in a twist!

Tyss, Gorgóraxo of Khthon
Tyss is Syntyss with a bow, of course...

Image
Image

...her tail's carefully wrapped around herself, as you can see. No chance of tail entrapment there.

Tyss, Gorgóraxo of Khthon
Illia is the sister of Thillia...

Image
Image

...ah yes, the tail pointing upwards is a bit of a warning.

Llydii, Gorgóraxo of Khthon
Llydii is a version of Phyllidii...

Image
Image

...a version with a bow! No tail worries here.

Selthi, Gorgóraxo of Khthon
This one's easy. Selthi is the bow version of Elthissi. No, really.

Image
Image

Again, these guys will be Wave 22 and Wave 23, we hope!

There's a new Ágriosávra!

Postby Rob Lane » Fri May 25, 2018 12:38 pm

Only the one miniature to show today, from Bob of course, and for the Khthones kindred and the Sávra realm...

ÁGRIOSÁVRA, SÁVRARCHON ON FOOT
When Bob did the Sávrar we decided very quickly that he should also resculpt the existing Sávrar nobles to fit in with the amazing look he'd produced. With Eikovra done early (because he was in the starter hosts) we've given him Ágriosávra, too...

Image
Image
Image

We do expect him to be a Wave 22 shipment in resin, Wave 23 in metal, but we do have a bit of a printing backlog so possibly not. Could be Wave 23 / 24. We'll see!

ÁKONTAR ÁGRIOSÁVRA, SÁVRARCHON ON FOOT
A javelin-armed version, you say? Why, yes sir!

Image
Image

Again, you're looking at Wave 22/23 here or, more likely, Wave 23/24.

Where Can I Buy One?
You can pre-order him - and the mounted version of him, because yes, ladies and gentlemen, we're also resculpting him on his Sávrakh, which should be bloody awesome - in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category:

Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (metal)
Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (resin)
Ákontar Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (metal)
Ákontar Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (resin)
Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Sávrakh (resin)
Ákontar Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Sávrakh (resin)
Myrkranio, Sávrargós on Foot (metal)
Myrkranio, Sávrargós on Foot (resin)

Oh yes, and Bob will also be resculpting Myrkranio. We spoil you lot!

Note that any outstanding orders for Ágriosávra on foot in metal or Myrkranio on foot in metal will be automatically upgraded to the new version.

That's yer lot for Savage Hordes today, but expect wips of Ágriosávra on Sávrakh soon...

More Lizardy Types

Postby Rob Lane » Fri May 25, 2018 12:42 pm

There's two new miniatures to show today from Bob, both for the Khthones and both utterly superb. But then we would say that.

ÁGRIOSÁVRA, SÁVRARCHON ON SÁVRAKH
With Bob resculpting Ágriosávra on foot, it would have been rude not to resculpt Ágriosávra on his Sávrakh. Whilst we are, generally speaking, quite rude, we're not going to be rude in this case.

Here's the simply wonderful Ágriosávra on his Sávrakh!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

You'll have the choice of "winged" head or "komodo" head for the Sávrakh (his name is Krekk for anyone who's interested), as both are included with the miniature.

Image

He should be a Wave 24 shipment, we think.

MYRKRANIO, SÁVRARGOS ON FOOT
The remaining Sávrar to be resculpted by Bob is Myrkranio... and what a wonderful resculpt it is!

Image

Again, you'll get both heads...

Image

...and again, he'll be a Wave 24 shipment!

Where Can I Buy One?
You can pre-order all of the new lizzies in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category:

Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (metal)
Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (resin)
Ákontar Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (metal)
Ákontar Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Foot (resin)
Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Sávrakh (resin)
Ákontar Ágriosávra, Sávrarchon on Sávrakh (resin)
Myrkranio, Sávrargós on Foot (metal)
Myrkranio, Sávrargós on Foot (resin)

Note that any outstanding orders for Ágriosávra on foot in metal or Myrkranio on foot in metal will be automatically upgraded to the new version.

Next up for Bob? He's just about finished the Two Axe Warriors of Baalor and then he'll be working on the Cogwyfern and Cocneidr from Savage Hordes II...

Free Men and Women

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jul 06, 2018 10:40 am

We've a few miniatures to show today, for the Anglecynn of Mierce and the Fomoraic of Far Thule, two of which will be a surprise to you all, which is always welcome on a Friday!

FREEMEN OF SCĪRBRŌC, CEORL FREEMAN UNIT
We'll start with the Ceorl Freemen, lovingly converted from the Ceorl Bowmen by their original sculptor, Stéphane Camosseto! Remember, Scīrbrōc is pronounced "Shire-brook". Yes, it's a real place, not far from Mierce Towers. John Hurt and Jason Statham come from there, don'tcha know, along with Ray Wilson, World Cup winner for England in 1966... so they must have had awesome ancestors!

Anyway, the Ceorl Freemen come with a shield and a sword, spear or axe so you can choose how to arm them!

Ceolric, Ceorl Freeman Wolfborn
Ceolric (CHOL-rich) is the champion of the unit -

Image
Image
Image

- he also does a bit of acting, does Ceolric. Nothing you've seen though.

Mutch, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
The third warrior of the unit is Mutch (MUCH) -

Image
Image
Image

- and he prefers beef.

Erwig, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
Not an earwig, an Erwig -

Image
Image
Image

- he likes a bit of black pudding, does Erwig. Who doesn't?!?

Ildith, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
The lovely Ildith loves lamb -

Image
Image
Image

- especially on a Sunday with a bit of mint sauce.

Winsweyn, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
Winsweyn is the last member of the unit, and to be honest he'll eat owt without putting any weight on. He's got one of them metabolisms.

Image
Image
Image

There's still a fair bit to finish off but these guys are definitely getting there. The banner bearer and the herald should be shown next time, too!

We're hoping they'll be an October shipment...

HARAALD, THULEAN RAIDER UNTAIN
With the splitting of the Fomoraic into various realms we decided it would be good to get some humans from Far Thule in there, and who better than Haraald and Aastrid?

Image
Image
Image

Let's have a reminder of what his weapon looks like...

Image

Haraald's changes include a cracking new helmet to replace that stupid batman mask, along with the Baalor symbol on it and on his gutplate; and he now bears the same shield as Aastrid rather than just shaking his fist at the sky...

AASTRID, THULEAN RAIDER TAIN
Aastrid gains the Baalor symbol on her gutplate and on her shield (the same shield shown for Haraald above)...

Image

A reminder of what her weapon looks like...

Image

They should be a Wave 23 shipment.

Where Can I Buy One?
You can pre-order the new Haraald and Aastrid with a bit of a discount in the Darklands: Savage Hordes category:

Haraald
Aastrid

They're only available in resin for now, and be warned - they'll disappear in August when they'll hopefully be released to the general public!

Note that any outstanding orders for Haraald on foot in metal or Aastrid on foot in metal will be automatically upgraded to the new version unless you request otherwise.

The Freemen of Scīrbrōc

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

There's seven miniatures to show off here, and all for the Anglecynn - and all bloody brilliant, even if we do say so ourselves.

FREEMEN OF SCĪRBRŌC, CEORL FREEMAN UNIT
The Ceorl Freemen have been converted from the Ceorl Bowmen by their original sculptor, Stéphane Camosseto, and they come with axe, sword or spear, plus a shield of course. Remember, Scīrbrōc is pronounced "Shire-brook".

Image

Above is the sword-armed unit in all its glory!

Ceolric, Ceorl Freeman Wolfborn
The champion of the unit is Ceolric (CHOL-rich).

Image
Image

Sword version

Image

Axe version

Image

Spear version

Ardith, Ceorl Freeman Fane Bearer
The unit's banner bearer is Ardith (AR-dith).

Image
Image
Image

Just the sword version to show of her; see Ildith's axe and spear arms to see how she'd look with those. She will get a shield, too, on her back hopefully.

Sweyn, Ceorl Freeman Hornblower
The Freeman Hornblower is Sweyn (SWAYN).

Image
Image
Image

Again, just the sword version to show - see Winsweyn's axe and spear variants to see how he'd look - and he'll get a shield on his back.

Mutch, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
The first warrior is Mutch (MUCH, the ch as in church).

Image
Image

Sword version

Image

Axe version

Image

Spear version

Erwig, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
The second warrior is Erwig (ER-wig).

Image
Image

Sword version

Image

Axe version

Image

Spear version

Ildith, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
The third warrior, converted from the banner bearer, is Ildith (IL-dith).

Image
Image

Sword version

Image

Axe version

Image

Spear version

Winsweyn, Ceorl Freeman Warrior
The fourth warrior, converted from the herald, is Winsweyn (WIN-swayn).

Image
Image

Sword version

Image

Axe version

Image

Spear version

Now these guys should be an October shipment, in resin at least - so that's Wave 25.

Last of the Freemen

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:16 am

Only two new-ish miniatures to show this week, both for the Anglecynn, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is all of the sculpts from this project completed. Remember, we added some resculpts to this project, too, so we've gone above and beyond on this one!

FREEMEN OF SCĪRBRŌC, CEORL FREEMAN UNIT
The Ceorl Freemen are now complete as Stéphane Camosseto has added shields and straps to the backs of the banner bearer and herald. Remember, Scīrbrōc is pronounced "Shire-brook"!

The unit looks great, as you can see!

Ardith, Ceorl Freeman Fane Bearer
The banner bearer, Ardith, now has a shield on her back with a lovely strap to hold it in place.

She's lovely!

Sweyn, Ceorl Freeman Hornblower
Sweyn is the herald of the unit and he also now has a shield on his back, with a strap.

These guys will be in our grubby mitts very soon and they should be a February shipment!
