Last I heard the city council was holding up them brining it in house as they had to go get approval for it. Guess because you're dealing with molten metals it's there are different permits needed.

Yeah, I believe the city council was slowing things down, but the last I heard Rob said he'd let us know where it was at.

I agree, getting the metals in house should be a big priority, as it would 'hopefully' speed things up for them. Although Rob did say, they'd still be doing metals through the original provider until they were set up in house.

I wish we'd get more updates as to what's been printed (or is printing). Tim will sometimes post on the facebook group with photos, but I just think it's nice to hear what progress is being made, even without pics. I get that stuff like the 'secret Banbreca', couldn't be talked about, but I'd assume most of the other stuff is fine.

The Ysian Hound abberants certainly do look different than the original, though much more dog-like now, I like them. The Aragorn sculpted one should be relabeled as a Cougar Abberant, since it almost seems more cat-like.

Sadly the last time we got quick and dirty shots of a print from Rob to many people moaned about it being a terrible figure (before changing their tune once the decent professional photos were shown),

so I think we're stuck waiting for professional shots for everything from now on

other than that it mainly seems to be going in KS order (for the stuff Bob's doing anyway)

I wish those Khthon would hurry up and get shipped!

I'm happy with how Konrad has turned out. Most of my ogres met their doom via eBay buyers, but I'd like to start up another red skinned horde with Mierce Fomorians leading the way....

So hopefully Uuroch isn't too far odd now...

Funded around two years ago, and not a whiff of the scculpt since!

Nightglom is great, except for the vertebrate eye, with eyelids, to me that doesn't work on an invertebrate, which has no skin with which to form them.
No criticism of Bob's awesome sculpt,he was simply following the artwork
Also, I really hope the leg sprues will come numbered!.

Or interchangeable. I mean, with digital sculpts it shouldn't be too hard to plop in some identical connectors on each set of ends, right? On that sort of many-segmented invertebrate most of those segments (and assorted appendages) are more or less identical anyway, aren't they? And by looking at the sculpt they sure seem to be more or less the same size.

Wow, I'd somehow completely forgotten about Uuroch. I even pledged for him.

I wouldn't mind if Bob ends up sculpting him though....

A Goat on a Boar

Shark Jump Miniatures is one step closer to reality this week with the awesomeness of a goat riding a boar! Ahem.

Check out these



Just the one miniature to show this week, a conversion in fact, for the Fomoraic...



The lovely Aanchuth, a Gabrax Warlock of the Cursed Herd, gains mobility by riding a Toracx, courtesy of the lovely mitts of Tim Prow. He's looking excellent!









He pops off at the waist, the legs will be attached to the Toracx.

He should be an October shipment, if I can get the thumbscrews out!

Aberrants of the Hound Variety

It's bloody cold this September, but that might be because we've had such a hot summer. Maybe this is normal.

Enough weather-related chattery, here's an update for Darklands: Savage Hordes II thanks to Bob Płociennik...

Here's some...



Here's three miniatures this week, started last time but now finished, and bloody awesome they are too. All for the Ysians!



The lovely Bob Płociennik has sculpted three awesome Hound-Aberrants for the Ysians, all on 60mm bases, which means that - gulp! - they could be ridden by some enterprising warchiefs...! But you'll probably want those Goad-Drunes in on the action too...



Akkaz, a resculpt of the original, is the epitome of unbridled power and aggression, and he has two heads. Maybe that's got something to do with it!













I wouldn't stroke him, personally...



When Danny Cruz gave us the artwork for Oloz, we couldn't believe our eyes! He couldn't either, because he hasn't got any.











Q: How does he see?

A: Not very well!!

Ahahahah ahaha... aha... ahem.

What a cracking weird aberration of a hound, anyway! Perfect!



By contrast, frankly, the artwork for Gungoz was not... right. So we took the opportunity to let Bob have a free reign, with a bit of direction from Rob anyway... and here's the result. Much better!











These guys should be a Wave 25 (February) shipment!

Buckle up crew, it's half-price resin until Oct 8: http://mierce-miniatures.com/index.php?act=cat&cre=off-smr

Lots of great stuff discounted, both old and new. I'm tempted by so many things, but I guess I'm hoping the drastically low stock levels (we're talking like 1 of many big beasties) on this stuff saves me ... At the rate things are selling out it may just!

Combine this with the various 'buy one get one' sales and the recently ended '1/2 price metals' sale, and no real Kickstarters from them in a while...add in the huge backlog of miniatures that they owe many, many people and that still remain to be actually sculpted...

...it doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the overall brand.

The metals were to clear out extra stock, this could be the same. They have limited space and probably need room in the warehouse.

The buy one get one 1/2 off Mierce has been doing for years.

Yes, I know, but with all of these things in close proximity to one another...

And maybe it is just that they've finally got local approval to move metal casting in house?

That would be great.

Mierce is an odd one at the best of times, with their nearly inscrutable 'method' for determining what gets sculpted when, what gets shipped when and how long something stays in 'packing' before actually 'shipping'.

I've got stuff in my backlog that's been there WAY, WAY too long - it would be nice to see it actually...ship.

Yea, if you check the page they all say they're surplus stock. About 2/3 of the things I was interested in are gone (*whew*), but my boy Gahwn, that weird alt wyvern with the bonking flint, is still kicking, as is the Kadámastar, a 'mini' I've flirted with for years now ...

Unrelated, shout out to Mierce for the Jute faction, one of the neatest a) human and b) viking or viking-esque factions to me, with all those undead and insect friends. EDIT: Ah, because they're doing the whole barrow thing? Hence undead ancestors and creepy tomb critters. I dig it.

UPDATE: Kadámastar's unavailable ...

Speaking of KS stuff, I did the bundle of 3 scuttling nucránca back in June, and we've seen people get theirs in this thread (or maybe it was FB). I guess I have to assume mine are waiting for another round of casting? They're 'processing' and type 'kickstarter' in my orders.

Yeah I checked it out earlier today (didn’t buy anything) and the monsters went the fastest of course. The two huge demons (both based on that bloodthirster-looking guy), the giant beetle and the orc on wyvern are gone now. Still have some cool ones like the giant, the colossus, the lizards and the guy on top of the bull-demon thing. Oh and that super creepy greater demon-sized spider...

I grabbed one of the last Iskarnos for the Khthon. Always wanted it but never pulled the trigger.

Sadly he was about the only thing I didn't already own that I hadn't paid full price for already.

I'm liking the great cleaver one the most.

No self respecting beastman would bother going into battle with a shield.

Now that I think about it just about all my Fomorians are alreayd wielding great weapons anyway so maybe I'm biased.

I agree. And I think that's in large part to the pose being cooler, and the helmet also. Though, the 2W one also has the helmet. I Iike them all really, though I might wait for metal for the 'two item' ones.

All the musters got updated this week as well, including the muster rules themselves.

Fomoraic got their first 'split', in that, the different realms now have much more distinct and obvious armies. So basically it's -

Warriors of Baalor - (ie Chaos warriors + Ogres, fully armored with ice monsters)
Reivers of the Eye - (ie Chaos Marauders + ogres, less armor, lots of bows, horsemen, dragon ogres)
Cursed Herd (ie Beastmen + Minotaurs , bovine beasties, warthogs) They even have their own spells.
Far Thule (ie All the other Animal men monstrous infantry + Cave people/ Barbarians, all the big prehistoric beasts as well)
Conand (ie All the fish/crustacean/sea folk/creatures) They have their own spells as well(s..).

I'm sure (similarly to a Warhammer fantasy chaos army) all these pieces can work together somewhat, but you can kind of see where each individual one needs help. The Cursed Herd is the most complete in regards to models available now. Far Thule is meant to proxy reivers for their Cave person infantry, but rules wise, they seem pretty set (I'd imagine they'll get their own spells also (Primal wild magics!!??). Warriors of Baalor, and the Reivers are short on monsters, and the Warriors don't have cavalry either. Just lots of armor, and powerful heroes. Conand needs smaller infantry, or any at all! The closest thing they have are the scuttling Nucranc, and they're considered monstrous beasts, too big to be monstrous infantry!

We've got a lovely little update for Darklands: Savage Hordes III Part Deux today with the return of an old favourite of ours...

This week we have:
•sculpt work in progress updates from Allan Carrasco;
•a link to the forums where you can see this project's fulfilment;
•a reminder that if you play Darklands, head to our forums to find more players!
•...and anything else you can expect from us over the next few months.

Let's have some



Two big miniatures to show today, and both for the Anglecynn. How splendid!



Creoda is one of our oldest miniatures: certainly a lot older than what will be his packmates, and we'd never consider anyone other than Allan Carrasco to sculpt them. So here's his work on Creoda's Pack!


]Creoda is one of our oldest miniatures: certainly a lot older than what will be his packmates, and we'd never consider anyone other than Allan Carrasco to sculpt them. So here's his work on Creoda's Pack!



Here's a reprise of the still-amazing Creoda.



Still an utterly beautiful miniature!



The first new Guthwulf is Acha...







...he'll be holding some entrails or other grisly stuff in his left paw... hand? No, paw-hand!



The third Guthwulf is Pybba, a more conventional leaping style of wolf...







It's early days for these guys yet, and Allan is pretty busy; he reckons the end of November, which is great! They should be a February shipment in that case. Woot!

I like how Allan starts by sculpting the head and face, then works back from there. It definitely works well for him!
