Yep I'm keeping them in mind .. at 2" tall that's about 50mm, our figures are all under 35mm tall so about 40 with the base. Croatoan on the other hand will be a tight squeeze

But we'll test it out for sure.. easy enough to make the walls a little taller if we need to.

The werewolf rocks. So how many gangs in the supernatural expansion are you planning?

Have you got the basic ideas down?Werewolves, Voodoo or what?

I assume these are well into 2014 to release?

There won't really be any gangs for the skinwalkers, it will be pretty much 1 big race and you can use any Alpha to lead your gang of creatures. But for the humans we will have the Unsung as the monster hunter gang, it will be an Infamous gang where every member is as tough as a gang leader or hired gun. Then we'll also do the flying zarconis gang too, they will be a standard skirmish gang.

The overall theme is going to be a lot of native american folklore monsters and other urban legend things like the Jersey Devil & bigfoot. These things just live out in the wilderness, people in the cities don't even know they exist, and the monster hunters are drifters that move from town to town saving the world 1 monster pack at a time.

No idea for release dates at this point.. probably around this time next year for retail. I'm hoping we can do a KS campaign for it this fall and it will be a big boxed game with everything you need to play, and then other monsters all sold separately. going to take a long time to get all the art done and 3D sculpts before we can do a KS campaign for it. It's in the very early stages right now

Ah sounds like a rather fundamental change in the game.

Too bad as is it works nicely and an alpha with some more generic mates, as a gang would have been cool.

Less interested in a mass of super greeblies changing the game so much.

Oh well, likely to save me some money javascript:emoticon('\%3E:(');

Yes that's they way it will be.. an Alpha is the same as a gang leader, a fiend is the same as a professional and a minion is the same as henchmen.. so maybe I wrote it wrong, the monsters all still form a gang, they're just not humans.

In the box boxed game though, the theme will be heroes vs a horde of monsters. But you can still play with a standard gang of men vs men if you want to stick with a straight up western shootout, or you can do men vs monsters or monsters vs monsters. Nothing is really changing, it's just a whole lot of new folklore creatures getting added to the game.

I posted this in news & rumors too.. crossposting just because

I just got the the concept art for the Werebear, by Heath Foley. This one isn't an Alpha Skinwalker like Croatoan, so he will be more man-sized... in height anyway. The theme I was going for was instead of a native look, this would have been like a trapper or mountain man that got on the wrong side of a skinwalker one day. So he's got his powder horn from hunting, and a little raccoon trophy left over from the good ole days before he had claws...

Here's the info from his rules:
Incredibly territorial hunters, werebears are renowned for their strength and ferocity. Their imposing size makes them a formidable foe, and they have been known to crush their victims into a bloody pulp with powerful bear-claw fists.

The bear aspect grants the Skinwalker +1 Strength, already added to their Character Card.

Pummel - in melee combat, every roll of 6 to hit lowers his target's DP by 1 for this attack.

Next up, the Werecat I'm going to ask Heath to tweak him a bit though, since he won't be carrying any guns, he was just supposed to be a former gunslinger or bounty hunter type of guy...

I think the teeth are too big, too. The length makes me think "Vampire." Combines with those ears and the huge dister that's still mostly in tact, this makes me think "Bat" more than "Cat."

Hmm.. yeah, I see what ya mean. The concept for him was supposed to be "gunslinger turned were-sabertooth-bobcat" .. maybe the duster should have been more shreded and a slight position change will fix it. He's kind of supposed to be in mid-roar. Maybe it will come across better in the 3D sculpt.

When we do the werebat he will have wings Kinda going for a bram stroker's dracula looking man-bat for that one. He'll be up next in a little while.

Maybe a hunched back and rounded ears would better communicate the idea of a Smilodon. The trench coat / duster also creates the impression of a cape, so maybe some less clothing on this one.

Yeah the coat is a little more capey looking. I'll see if he can fix it, or worst case we'll just tear it up more on the 3D model.

Going to be doing the Werebat next, I'm thinking he might have more of a native american look, and maybe armed with a bow. Or would bat wings get in the way every time he pulls the string back? At first I was thinking wings could be extra and bats and birds would still have normal arms, angel style.. but I don't know if that would feel right.. like, would a werebat or bird suddenly sprout wings out of their backs, when other werethings don't get any completely new appendages?

I'm leaning in the same direction as Cyporiean.

Check out this guy below: Fully formed hands and arms, with a membrane in the armpit that implies a "wing." Stick a bone pipe breastplate on him and he'd rock.

I've always been a fan of the man-bat that appeared in the season eight of The X-Files...



Perhaps a little too monstrous, but could be a good starting point.

I took a stab at drawing an Indian-style Werebat. I considered giving him clawed feet, but I changed it to leggings and moccasins to emphasize that this was once a man. I exagerrated the face into a caricature, but I think if I had to do it over again I would have made it look even more Satanic. Anyway, for lawyer speak: This is a gift for Necros to use or discard as he pleases and I relinquish creator's rights to it.

Looks cool

When we get around to it I think I might try an aztec or mayan feel for a couple of alphas, like they've been around since then.. Maybe for a jaguar werecat alpha.

Yep we can try those. I was thinking of having one of them be like a civil war soldier that was turned, still wearing his tattered uniform.

They're minions so they will be around wolf-sized, even the bunny

What I'm shooting for is Croatoan / alpha skinwalkers and other monster level creatures will be around 7 feet tall so they'd be 40-50mm and probably on a larger 40mm base. Regular skinwalkers and Fiend level things will be human sized, and then minions will be mostly wolf sized, and on a 30mm base.
