Title: Fantasy additions!
Post by: Leon on 21 July 2020, 10:58:10 PM
It's been a while since we previewed anything here, so we thought you'd all like to see some quick pics of a few upcoming Fantasy additions we've got in the pipeline.  These are all larger 20-25mm sculpts to go into our Warband Fantasy ranges, and should be available towards the end of August or early September hopefully.

Thanks to Phil for his work on these!  We've got a lot of Fantasy stuff planned for this year, including new Ratmen and Amazon ranges, plus some bears!

Erm....... :-\

I don't think those are the plague elementals, Boss.  ;)

Storm elementals ?.....Matey on the left should have a lightning bolt for his left hand ?

(Somewhat ironic that I made the plague ones just before Covid 19 raised its ugly head......I'll be interested to see one of those.....'Cos I can only remember two of the three*.....It's age, you know !)  :'( :'( :'(

Cheers - Phil

*I'll look it up in my piccies file....and go "Oh, Yeah.......That's the one.") X_X

No.....He can't read my writing on the boxes.  ;D ;D ;D.......Or someone's swapped the box lids over. ;)

(I was going to try and get a 'frost' effect on the middle one, by 'sticking' teeny weeny bits of white metal dust on it......But the particles were just toooooo big....rats !  :(.......Two (?) of the 'plagues' have got medieval style plague masks on them...Like I say.....I can't remember the third, at the mo. 8-}

That took some finding !

Now I know what the third plague elemental looks like.
I obviously ignored the concept art....and did my own thing !  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I'm not a fantasy fan, but I have to say there are some lovely sculpts there.


I am looking forward to someone painting up those fire giants, (d_Guy has to get some for his firefighting game) but my favourite has to be the first plague elemental.

Great figures, but you worry me a little. Do they come out of you imagination, or is there some genre of horror film that you watch?


Title: Re: Fantasy additions!
Post by: Techno on 22 July 2020, 04:07:05 PM
Actually Nobby, the ones that are marked as plague elementals should be the storm elementals.....The plague ones (wot I already dun) aren't shown there yet.

A lot of the time I work from concept ideas/pics from Leon & Mark.....Other times I let what passes for my brain run riot. ;)

Cheers - Phil :)
Title: Re: Fantasy additions!

Yep, my mistake there!  I've edited the pics now.  I'll need to find his lightning bolt then won't I...!

No. I don't see that. Definitely plague, but storm? ... nah.

Gone off them now.

Where are the Amazons?

I'm afraid that's gone over my head.....Hit the wall with a wet 'splat'......and is slowly sliding towards the floor, Nobby. :-\

Someone explain that one to me ?

Looking back at the early greens Phil - I think the one on the right is a Plague Elemental and the 2 centre & left are Storm Elementals ... but happy to be told I am wrong.

Either way they are all looking very nice Phil.

I particularly like the Forest Trolls - I plan to stick static grass & lichen and even small trees on mine in patches to give them more of an overgrown woody/mossy look.
NB: did you know that in the 1980s the Danes stuck astroturf on some of their Leopard 1 MBTs - taking camo to a whole new modern level  :D
Title: Re: Fantasy additions!
Post by: Techno on 23 July 2020, 12:53:40 PM
No, Mark.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

The one on the right is a re-interpretation of something from a fairly recent popular TV series.....Which I've only seen a few episodes of....I was given the first series on DVD as a prezzie.
Couldn't get into it......Too much completely irrelevant 'smut'....I never got past the first DVD of 4/5/6....?

The plague 'wossnames' have all got those medieval masks.

My own favourite of those, is the one that is holding the mask away from 'his' face. (The one I couldn't remember.)

If I'd put a hood on the figure....and changed his staff to a scythe.....He'd have made a decent 'Angel of Death'.

The Forrest trolls ?
I had exactly the same thoughts. :)


Cheers - Mr Sicky. ;)

Out of interest (assuming you're allowed to reveal it) are they "high fantasy" Amazons or "vaguely historical" Amazons?
Title: Re: Fantasy additions!
Post by: Techno on 24 July 2020, 10:45:31 AM
I'd describe them as vaguely historical, Matthew.....Not what I'd call high fantasy.

(......And they haven't got their 'lungs' out. ;))

Haha good to know, would definitely be interested in that, find a lot of the Amazon models out there tend to be more than a little impractical...  :-\

I'm using some female looking figures from the newish sarmation cavalry for "very historical" amazons in my Trojan war project, but would be fun to do a full army at some point if they fit more into the historical/mythological frame than the 13 year old boy fantasy frame!  ;D

Despite my lustful interest in females with ginger hair I have never had one for a girlfriend, much less the chance to check "Collar and Cuffs" :d  (however this is on my bucket list SSHHHH!!!!! ) By the time I get the chance (if ever)they will have all gone grey. :(

Mrs Orcs is a typical Amazon, Tall , very longs legs and a real Blond.(as opposed to the majority of women with blond hair on their heads being "Aeroplane blonds")
