No worries - I'm sure Highlords will find some reason to Highlord it up during this campaign.

They always do!

Dude, I gotta get my reptile fix.

I'm actually more intrigued with that wall piece and how that's going to be used.

Just about a week to go now!

....slowpokes.



They look big.

What material will the piggies be when they're cast?

That would be resin. And yes, they are big, these are monstrous cavalry around 55 to 60mm long (without the tail) and are currently standing on 75x50mm bases.
There will also be a mounted version with heavier armor :-)

The simpler version (portrayed atop) may be destined for 50mm bases (with careful positioning they should rank up just fine) although we are still play testing to see if that would work OK, the mounted version is 100% oriented for the 75x50mm bases we had originally planned them for, there will be no changes there. All monstrous cavalry (regardless of race/faction) share that base size.

Our biggest surprises have yet to come, we are saving them for the duration of the campaign.
Hope you like them, these were sculpted by Olivier Bouchet, another very talented sculptor in our opinion of our Team.
Another thing I'm allowed to reveal is that he has been commissioned by us to sculpt 3 out of 4 monstrous cavalry, he's currently working on the Shieldmaiden beasties :-)

Thank you.

We have entered the last week, so we may even start teasing a bit more, we are pretty sure you'll be seeing stuff you were not expecting. Hopefully all this work will be liked as much as we liked it ourselves, like another member said in another forum, there is an element of art in producing miniatures, and that's exactly how we feel about it! :-D

So, the teasers below have to do with the Shieldmaiden faction this time (pictures), sculpted by the very talented Paolo Fabiani. Tomorrow we'll be revealing some -beastly- goodies from the Valley Orc race. :-)







My mind saw the first picture and your blurb about shield maidens and thought are they really making a fantasy shower room wall set
my mind obviously was not in the right place this morning.

Looking forward to seeing how is one plays out.

I'm a bit skeptical about funding multiple factions, all in HIPS, but go big or go home I guess?

Best of luck Shieldwolf!

@Alex C, think London time interests more than Athenian... :-)

And yes, go big or go home, although we will start small and start building up (another choice we spent hours discussing upon)...
Fingers crossed!

It's less about the start date for the KS and more about the end date.

You can start it now.

We won't mind.

Or tell.

At least I've got something to look forward to on Tuesday!

I finally finished my Troll that's been sitting here for months now, in honor of this starting!

Got to take care of that giant pile of Mountain Orcs next.

Now about getting to work on time...

Grabbed an EB and the first comment!

No idea what I'll end up with by the time this all finishes.

Probably big stuff.

5 coins for those orcs is a great deal though!

So I've just had a look and there are no troops apart from the ogres available from the get go, or the first few stretch goals as well? These ogres are expensive which is why I didn't want them made out of resin, there what £25 for 4? I can get 6 GW ogres for £20 or 6 Mantic ogres for £16. I prefer fatties for my ogres but I like the design of the mantic ones as well. I thought there was ment to be 5 armies not 4, unless I'm having a blonde moment. I would've liked to have had a $1 pledge so I could put my foot in the door and maybe upgrade if I like some of the troops from the other armies later on. Though I'm looking forward to what the mammoth will look like! Good luck on the KS!

It's true that I would've loved to see a stronger focus on troops. The orc troops are by far the major reason people are interested in this one!
