Hello all,


edit: here is a link to theTrolls & Goblins kickstarter for people who clicked on page 1 first!
Trolls & Goblins Kickstarter campaign



I'd like to introduce my new miniature range: Aenor Miniatures

as you can see the first models are fantasy characters and modern horror. The scale is 30mm (you can see some comparaison pics on the fb page)
for now there are just high quality resin castings, but there will be metal versions later

you can follow us on the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AenorMiniatures/
and get the miniature from our website: https://aenorminiatures.com/en

I liked the zombies so much I ordered them. We messaged over FB & I paid via PP. He gave me an eta (today) & that's when they turned up! Great casts with little flash.
Cheers!

Check out my gallery here
Also I've started taking photos to use as reference for weathering which can be found here. Please send me your photos so they can be found all in one place!!

thanks for the feedback (and for the order, now I'm waiting for you to paint them! )

I'll post a few previews later, I'm interested in feedback from gamers perspective

for now I have posted a few scale comparaison pictures with different manufacturers, they should mix with a lot of range. I'll make some GW comp pics later, need to figure what pertient (and modern) models I have around.

next to hasslefree:


next to zombicide:

The website is now online! https://aenorminiatures.com/en

You can order the miniatures from here and for the holidays you will get free shipping for all orders of 60€ and more (until the end of the year).
You can also get the miniatures in bundles at a reduced price (this should last until more realeses come).

I'm not really sure how this works, but is there a U.S. reseller (or a way to get them over here)? That barbarian is absolutely beautiful.

thanks!
no resellers yet, but you can order them from the online shop: https://aenorminiatures.com/en/shop/all (barbarian is on p2, or just check the fantasy section)

shipping is 2€ for France, 3€ for UE and 4€ for rest of the world (I should write it somewhere, still working on the site!) but as said above you get free shipping for orders of 60€ and more until the end of the year

let me know if you have any problem!

here is a little preview of some goblins... coming later this year, there should be enough for a warband or even a small army if the reception is good enough






I'd be interested to hear from a gamer perspective what kind of weapon options you'd like to see, if you prefer to have the shield cast with the mini or be optionnal, etc...
I guess those would be used in skirmish games with small warbands, but you could use them to build regiment as well if you prefer mass battle games.

These look wonderful, so full of character.

Personally I'd prefer final look and practicality over loads of different options if you can get it to look natural and get the fit to be pretty secure then options is good.

But thin joins that will fall off all the time or compromised poses would be bad.

What kind of future plans for them are you mulling over? Frostgrave warband perhaps?

With metals, as close to single-piece castings as possible (with good strong join points on any pieces that do require assembly) is my preference.

Lots of single-pose castings would probably be best.

Really great sculpts, your sculpting for Mantic was fantastic.

thanks guys!

I have in mind any game you may want to use them for, but of course Frothgrave looks like the best choice (even though I have to admit I've never played it and don't know that much of it).
I've also had someone comment he'd like to use them for a Saga warband and if I can get enough of them produced you could even have regiment of them for WFB/AOS, 9th Age or KoW, but resin/metal minis are probably a bit pricey compared to the plastic options around when building large regiments.
Not sure yet how much of them there will be, I plan to use crowdfunding to realese them as it would be very hard/long to build a full range of them the traditional way.

@scarletsquig, I like the ideas of many single pose castings too (and maybe relying on conversions to get more poses done rather than options)
and @Vorian, I also prefer look over multipart option

However on another forum they are all for optionnal shields (though I don't think it works nicely on very detailed minis, you can't have handles or straps like on those).
What do you think about having some without shields and an optional shield to add either on left arm or to a straop on the back?

For some of them I'll have to separate the hands/weapons for casting/pose, so I may have alternate weapons here, but it would be the exception rather than the rule

how does it sounds?

if the minis are sold in packs would you mind if they have different equipement options or if some are cast with their shield while other have a separate one?
with regiments in mind I'd think you'd want packs of similar models, but a horde of missmatched guys could be good for goblins?

what are the prefered weapon/armors in the different games?

I'll keep posting new models for feedback (already have some done but I need to make good pics, and maybe to keep some surprises for later!)

Well, I would be interested in them more to paint - and as you point out if the shields are optional you can't have the straps etc so you've compromised the look for variability.

With something like Frostgrave you have quite a bit of freedom with weapons because they are defined so loosely.

The different types of warriors are listed here: http://therenaissancetroll.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/building-frostgrave-warband.html?m=1

I love the hodgepodge nature of them, so all sorts of spears, swords, halbards, clubs, clevers etc with the same fantastic character to them! A few archers would be welcome too.

I think in terms of heroes a Chieftain, wizard and wizards apprentice are the minimum you'd want to go with.

Looking forward to seeing more!

I would definitely vote against separate shields. It just doesn't make sense on models like these.

I imagine these will mostly be used for either painting fun or low count skirmish games, so you definitely need a few archers, a distinctive leader, a wizard, and some sort of big brute, monster, or cavalry option to cover most things people look for in a skirmish size game.

I also think you should change the face of the one with the spear/halberb to be more morphologically similar to the other two. He looks like a different species and seems out of place to me.

Just fantastic! My wife and I have plans to make a cityscape using Tabletop World's beautiful buildings with a wall around it. I think I just found some characterful villains for the setup!

There's no need to change the thin faced one, the variety of faces is a great thing.

Aenor, I don't suppose you have any scale photos of them do you?

@MLaw: not in the short future, but I have been thinking about it too. No real plan though, I've been thinking about all kind of greenskins, including half-orcs and more Tolkien like orcs (opposed to the big muscular ones). But depending what you expect from hobgoblins that may work? The taller, skinnier goblins could also be half hobgoblins in my mind, I wanted a mix of body types.

@Vorian: thanks for the link, very helpfull! I should get the rules someday but this is a good start, and I've some wip that would fit some of the warrior types.
I have some bowmen, the chieftain almost done and an old wise goblin who could be the wizard (though I may do an actual wizard too) as well as a shaman WIP... and the wizard apprentice is a great idea, lots of potential!
No comparaison pics yet, but I'll make some. Those ones are 24mm top of the head except the tall one who is 26-27mm top of the head.

@Gallahad: yes I agree for shields. What I have in mind is to make optionnal ones when the joint would be mostly hidden, so it wouldn't really matter, or just supply a shield you could glue on the back for minis with back straps so if you just want cool looking minis you can ignore the shield and WYSIWYG players can still have the correct equipement.
Big brutish goblin would be nice to vary body types and I've some monsters on the way. I plan to do cavalery too but probably later as those are big plans!
I like the head on the tall skinny goblin, as I said I want them to be as different as possible, to make them a real mix of sizes and morphologies rather than clones like plastic ranges. Once there as more he may blend better with other goblins who would have a morphology halfway between those.

@SlaveToDorkness: eheh, maybe your city would be some kind of labyrinth?

@RiTides: what about one with TWO cleavers?!

I didn't push the facial likeness as much as I could, but let's say I may have been inspired by a character he played
