Darklands: Warriors of Baalor - Fulfilment

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jun 16, 2017 2:18 pm

DARKLANDS: WARRIORS OF BAALOR
FULFILMENT

Wave 0 is complete
Wave 0 - the existing miniatures from this project - is now complete.

There's not much else to say here, except - there's a while to go before the first miniatures are shipped from this project, so keep watching the updates to see what will make it into that first Wave.

Metals will ship at separate times
The metal versions of miniatures 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.

Resin Miniatures:

    SHIPMENT WAVE 0 (complete): Existing miniatures
    SHIPMENT WAVE 20 (February 2018): Armoured Gaarwäg
    SHIPMENT WAVE 23 (August 2018): Great Axe Kraan - Destroyer Daarkan - Shieldwall Naraa - Two Axe Tundaar - Ice Staff Maagaan
    SHIPMENT WAVE 28 (August 2019): Shieldwall Aadolf - The Eye Ascendant, Shieldwall Warrior of Baalor Unit - The Eye Arisen, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit - The Eye Angered, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit

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.

Metal Miniatures:

    SHIPMENT WAVE 29 (October 2019): Great Axe Kraan - Destroyer Daarkan - Shieldwall Naraa - Two Axe Tundaar - Ice Staff Maagaan - The Eye Ascendant, Shieldwall Warrior of Baalor Unit - The Eye Arisen, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit - The Eye Angered, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit

Items in green will DEFINITELY be sent in that wave as we have them in hand.
Items in green italics have been sent to the metal casters but have only been produced in sample form.
Items in yellow italics are in mould-making progress (as we have all of the miniatures required) and should make it into that wave, but we don't yet have the first samples.
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 0 Miniatures: September 3rd, 2017
    Wave 20 Miniatures: February 5th 2018
    Wave 25 Miniatures: February 25th 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: Savage Hordes! 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.

New Sculpts and Alterations:
    YANNICK FUSIER: He'll be doing Haakon and the Ograx of Baalor.
    BOB PŁOCIENNIK: Bob has digitally sculpted the various Warriors of Baalor units, and he'll also be doing Rikkaard on foot and on Theracx, and the Booming Mammax!

Not too much to do really...!

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; in progress sculpts are in yellow italics.

New Sculpts and Alterations:
    FOMORAIC: Great Axe Kraan - Destroyer Daarkan - Shieldwall Naraa - Two Axe Tundaar - Ice Staff Maagaan - Shieldwall Rikkaard on Foot - Great Axe Rikkaard on Foot - Two Axe Rikkaard on Foot - Shieldwall Rikkaard on Theracx - Great Axe Rikkaard on Theracx - Two Axe Rikkaard on Theracx - Shieldwall Haakon - Great Axe Haakon - Two Axe Haakon - Shieldwall Aadolf - Two Club Aadolf - Armoured Gaarwäg - The Eye Ascendant, Shieldwall Warrior of Baalor Unit - The Eye Arisen, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit - The Eye Angered, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit - Graadon's Mob, Shieldwall Ograx of Baalor Unit - Gonraad's Mob, Great Axe Ograx of Baalor Unit - Raado's Mob, Two Axe Ograx of Baalor Unit - Booming Mammax, Mammax Unit - Criamaak

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

THE EYE ASCENDANT, SHIELDWALL WARRIOR OF BAALOR UNIT

Image

The banner-bearer, or Tusk-Bearer in Fomoraic parlance, is Ulaan...

We've got a couple of works in progress from Yannick Hennebo this week, for the Fomoraic, of course... and these two are strictly limited edition, so you'd better get yours quickly if you haven't got one already!

DESTROYER DAARKAN, TAIN OF BAALOR
Daarkan gets two soul axes and becomes Destroyer Daarkan. Nasty...

Image
Image
Image

He'll be Wave 20...

SHIELDWALL NARAA, TAIN OF BAALOR
The lovely Naraa becomes Shieldwall Naraa thanks to the addition of a shield...

Image
Image

She'll be Wave 20, too!

Tundaar and Gaarwäg

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Oct 27, 2017 2:20 pm

This is a Fomoraic project, so here's two Fomoraic nobles, from Yannick and Tim...

TWO AXE TUNDAAR, TAIN OF BAALOR
Tundaar is an evil bugger, for sure, and he becomes even eviller with two axes thanks to Yannick Hennebo...

Image
Image

He should be a Wave 20 shipment...

ARMOURED GAARWÄG, MAMMAX TAIN
Tim Prow has worked hard on Armoured Gaarwäg, with predictably awesome results...

Image
Image
Image
Image

He should be a Wave 20 shipment, too!

Kraan and Maagaan

Postby Rob Lane » Fri Jan 26, 2018 1:46 pm

Two lovely conversions of existing miniatures from Yannick Hennebo this month, both for the Fomoraic, funnily enough.

GREAT AXE KRAAN, UNTAIN OF BAALOR
Kraan gets a great axe to become - wait for it - Great Axe Kraan! Fantastic!

Image
Image
Image
Image

He'll be a Wave 20 shipment...

ICE STAFF MAAGAAN, WARLOCK OF BAALOR
The limited edition variant of Maagaan, carrying an ice staff, is called Ice Staff Maagaan, inventively.

Image
Image

He should be a Wave 20 shipment, too!

Great Axes and Two Axes

Postby Rob Lane » Wed Aug 22, 2018 2:37 pm

We have fully fourteen miniatures to show you today, all for the Fomoraic of course, and all bloody brilliant...

THE EYE ARISEN, GREAT AXE WARRIOR OF BAALOR UNIT
The Warriors of Baalor known as The Eye Arisen sport great axes and a shield on their back instead of axe and shield in hand, of course, because they're all about braining people over the head.

Gaanan, Great Axe Gultain of Baalor
The champion is Gaanan.

Image
Image

He's great!

Unaan, Great Axe Tusk-Bearer of Baalor
Unaan is the banner bearer.

Image

He will have a helmeted head to keep the unit's helmet continuity!

Lanaa, Great Axe Herald of Baalor
Lanaa is the herald...

Image

...and again, she'll have a helmeted head...

Raatoc, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor
A warrior, is Raatoc...

Image
Image

The head on his shield is actually modelled on Timmy. No, really.

Paarac, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor
Another warrior, is Paarac...

Image
Image

When asked how he'd get his axe out of anything he's killed, Paarac declined to answer and brained the asker instead.

Ulaac, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor
A warrior, Ulaac...

Image
Image

He only has a few pennies to his name, so he's often found on payday loan websites.

Annaa, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor
A lovely lass, is Annaa.

Image
Image

Especially when you buy her a drink.

THE EYE ANGERED, TWO AXE WARRIOR OF BAALOR UNIT
These guys, The Eye Angered, carry two axes and are not afraid to use them at all, and are also bareheaded. Because they're mad.

Gaanak, Two Axe Gultain of Baalor
The champion is Gaanak...

Image
Image

...and we love his moustache. Perhaps he was once Welsh?

Utaan, Two Axe Tusk-Bearer of Baalor
Utaan is the banner bearer...

Image

...and he'll have a bare head...

Laraa, Two Axe Herald of Baalor
Laraa is the herald...

Image

...and she'll have a bare head, too...

Aacor, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor
Aacor is a warrior...

Image
Image

...and like all good warriors, he kills people.

Taarac, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor
Taarac is another warrior...

Image
Image

...and he's a bit mental.

Taanu, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor
Taanu is the warrior based on the banner bearer...

Image
Image

...he looks mean and moody!

Janaa, Two Axe Warrior of Baalor
The warrior based on the herald is Janaa...

Image
Image

...someone should tell the boob police that she's wearing armour over her boobs. Fancy!

Both of these units will be Wave 25 shipments, we shouldn't wonder... we've absolutely tons of things to print.

Aadolf with the Two of Clubs

Postby Rob Lane » Mon Jun 03, 2019 11:18 am

Just the one Fomoraic miniature to show you, but he is awesome...

TWO CLUB AADOLF, OGRAX REIVER TAIN
Yannick Fusier's really stepped up the progress on the Ograx Reivers recently, and whilst he's only doing alternates they still look amazing. Here's Aadolf, the Ograx Reiver Tain, with two clubs instead of great weapon...

Image
Image
Image
Image

Look at the size of those clubs! He should be an August shipment as the shieldwall version is next, and he's going to be so awesome we might explode.

What's Next

Yannick will do Shieldwall Aadolf of course, as well as the fully-armoured Haakon and the Ograx of Baalor; but Bob will be digitally sculpting the rest - Rikkaard in his various guises, and the Mammax...
