Hello,
I am starting a new company, Fractured Dimensions, and these are the first two miniatures that I hope to have up for pre-order by the end of March. Please feel free to let me know what you think of them (good and bad).

OPDV01 Geryon, Gatekeeper of the Damned

Geryon was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. This miniature stands roughly 82mm tall from the bottom of the base to the top of the bare head and roughly 115mm tall from the bottom of the base to the top of the helmeted head. Right now all that has to be finished on him is the detailing on the left hand holding the horn.

This model will be supplied with two heads as well as two complete sets of arms.














Head Detail





Shield Detail



Horn Detail

In this picture you can clearly see the unfinished hand. Should be finished this week.



Tail Detail




OPDV02 Garuda, the Thrice Damned Mage-Lord

Garuda was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. He stands roughly 37mm tall from the bottom of his base to the top of his head.

Be careful using names that TSR/WoC created like intellect devowerer. That is not in the public domain and if you're using their art for inspiration you're already on the edge of a cease and desist letter. YOu're always best off going with your own ideas and not someone else's.

Good suggestion thanks . I am not sure yet but I am hoping around $5.99 US but I may have to change that depending on the specific casting costs.

The snake demons remind me of Clash of the Titans, old school variant, they appear a montage of the monsters and characters present.

I think the first one would look better if the tail was bigger, both broader and longer to allow it to taper naturally, so that it looked more like an extension of his torso.

Heh, yeah Geryon looks like someon was definitely watching the original Clash of the Titans- Medusa meets Calibos! The details are fantastic. Unfortunately, the bottom serpent section seems undersized and disproportionate to the humanoid portion.

Garuda is a solid sculpt, if a bit plain. Good for a generic "evil guy".

I think the tail on the first one is too small in proportion to the body. Needs to be bigger/longer

I do mean this to be blunt, but NOT to be rude;
Looking at the first model, I had one thought running through my head, "The 1980's called. They want their miniatures back."
Not a fan at all. With the level of quality being produced in minis today, I want to spend my money on something fantastic.

The second model was good, but is around the quality we saw from Reaper in the early 2000's.

IMO, these models need a lot of polishing. There's a glut of miniatures on the market, and the competition for our gaming dollars is rather intense. If you want to cut a piece of that pie for yourself, you need to WOW us.

I do think it's cool that you're doig this.

MM: There's a big nostalgia movement that loves the Partha-style 80's minis, just as they love the Errol Otis 2D art and playing 1E rules. The Geryon mini does fit that well, strange proportions and all. You have a very valid point though that there may not be a lot of selling power in catering to that.

Brettz123, the sculpt with the horn wears the strange proportions better than the Grecian warrior version. You might consider applying the Grecian bitz to a different sculpt. Love the face on the horn sculpt, btw.

Infinity: Way, way better than 40K and more affordable to boot!

That occurred to me as well. Tail is noticeably disproportionately small compared to the thorax, head and arms. Other than that, cool, well-done and a bit retro. I still have some Ral Partha and Grendadier models laying around that are similar in style. Good luck!

There's a big nostalgia movement that loves the Partha-style 80's minis
I'm not convinced that there is a big nostalgia movement or even a small one. My experience is that old Ral Partha and Grenadier minis do not attract all that much interest at flea markets or on eBay and they don't seem to command much money either, especially compared to "gaming" minis like Games Workshop, new or old. Example, I had a beautiful Julie Guthrie Chaos Dragon, unpainted, that I wanted to part with last year and I was barely able to give it away. My experience with other non-GW minis from that period, even new in package, was the same. There are exceptions, most notably the fantastic D&D Dragonlance minis by Ral Partha. If you have those specific models, people definitely want them.

My experience has been that (a) you have to be dropping them in lots, and have some of the harder to find ones in the lots or (b) they have to be highly sought after LE minis.

I rest my case. And if there's anything in particular you are seeking, send me a PM because I still have a bit of that stuff around.

People have apparently gotten C&Ds for using Mind Flayers and other copyrighted monsters.

Copyright prevents people from making works derived from works owned by others. That's why we can't have the Borg in 40k or I can't write Lord of the Rings II: The Story of Sauron's Other Ring.

And trademarks would make things even thornier, if WoC already makes an intellect devower mini and thought to TM it they have a strong case.

All in all best to have a Mental Masticator and be safe.

Sage advice. And note that "Mentok The Mind Taker" is also already taken.

Hi everyone thanks for the comments critical or supportive or both! I am going for a retro look which is sort of the point. Probably not a huge market but I only am looking to sell a couple hundred.

TSR has a list of no no minis none of which are the intellect devourer. Of course Kyotos warning sage and some name changes will be coming.

As far as a rules set go I am working on a skirmish game (warbands and what not) that will be available as a free pdf download. Don't expect it anytime soon though as I am very busy with a lot of stuff right now.

Some new pictures for everyone to look at.

Summary:

I will be mailing all of these out today to the mold maker so I should have the masters in hand within two weeks. Once that happens I will post new pics and links for anyone who is interested in pre-ordering them.

Geryon hand finished.
Hobgoblin Cleric.
4 Blanks that are still greens.
4 Blank heads for pig-faced orcs.
4 Dungeon bases (50mm, 40mm, 25mm, and 20mm)
Pig-Faced Orc Test Piece.

Geryon Finished Hand

Again this is from Sandy Garrity. She was able to finish the hand very quickly and get it to me the other day.



Hobgoblin Cleric

Sculpted by Ian Mountain. A classic Hobgoblin look with some very nice detailing especially on the unholy symbol.





Blanks for Future Miniatures

This is a set of four blanks sculpted by Ian Mountain that will be the basis for Pig-Faced Orcs, Hobgoblins, and Ghouls. This will allow me to quickly release a large range of miniatures as quickly as possible.

Blank One



Blank Two



Blank Three



Blank Four



Pig-Faced Orc Faces

Sculpted by Ian Mountain these are the basic heads that will be used for the various Pig-Faced Orc Warriors.



Dungeon Bases

50mm and 40mm dungeon bases.


25mm and 20mm dungeon bases.


Pig-Faced Orc Test Piece

This was the first test piece Ian Mountain sculpted for me. I probably will never release it but thought I would post it just to show the look and feel of the rest of the orcs that will follow. The heads have been redone, the new orcs will also all have tattered trousers, and they will also have clawed feet with no shoes.

Very nice figures, particularly the hobgoblin cleric. Will certainly be watching this line, especially as figures fit into my own OSR game(s).

Any chance that you will be doing player characters?

I am very much looking to do player characters including humanoid ones (Orcs, Hobgoblins, Goblins, and Bugbears). Specifically dwarfs will be following the Orcs and Hobgoblins.

ok everyone just wanted to let you know that the miniatures have arrived at the mold maker and masters should be finished next week.

A couple of other things:

1. I started a blog to act as a newsletter in order to get information out.

http://fractureddimensionsnews.blogspot.com/

2. I wanted to take a quick poll to see if people would prefer to see the Geryon miniature produced completely in metal or to have the body done in resin to reduce the cost? Right now I am leaning heavily towards metal as I prefer it personally.
