Reaper's pushing in on 40K with this Space Sharks (or Carcharodons) dreadnaught, will GW have a filibuster of lawyers on the way to destroy it?


Or they're stealing ideas from the Fish Elfs!

Reaper why are you stealing ideas from the Fish Elfs? More importantly how did you steal ideas from the Fish Elfs a year before they came out?

That beast is no puny basic dread variant, maybe a contemptor or one of the FW ones but I’m not familiar with them.

As May winds down June's METAL appears!


Gon'Tarr is billed as an Orc, but the anatomy is all wrong. No head growing out of his rib cage, no bow legs, no teeth the size of tennis rackets. Poor show.


Phineas here should meet all your needs for Necromancers or Hogswart instructors.


No lie. Alec here is a solid looking mage character. Or Hogswart student.


Same with this ranger, he looks ready to climb down the next dungeon he sees.


This Blighted Dryad is a bit static and not all that Blighted. I'd honestly prefer the GW ones.


This Dark Dwarf Irontongue Priest looks ready to hammer the Obsidian Spike to join the Eastern and Western Halves of his demonic railroad allowing the forces of darkness to unite and destroy the forces of order. Unless someone can steal the Obsidian Spike first! Wow, that's a campaign right there.


OK the caption says this is some sort of Dragon, but no wings, no horns, no spines, I doubt it even breaths fire. Poor show Reaper.

And finally

A fearsome baroness of hell bring forth her uh... beer. Evil beer.
Stay weird Reaper.

So no were giraffes or Steampunk Wizard of Oz characters but some solid fantasy figures and a demonic barmaid so I'd call this a winner.

That Komodo dragon thing is legit, might get some of them for Exodite weapons mounts (cause what is better than a big lizard, than a big lizard with a freakin lazer?). Are the letters for scale as well?

Cheers, so that actually works out pretty well as a grav platform proxy, other than being about 300% too long.

That says Planescape to me. I love it.

She's probably about to serve a fiend and a deva debating the nature of existence while a floating skull tries to chat her up.

If she's not actually a bunch of rats operating a clockwork body with a succubus illusion cast on it, I'd be amazed. And so would everyone else in the pub.

Kokomo Dragon? Not familiar with it. I largely dropped out after 2nd edition, played a bit of 3rd so I'm not really up on what's been added to the game.

Glad you see a use for it.

I must have been attacked by Mantic's Chroneas, because I suddenly feel old.

Never heard of Kokomo? "Bodies in the sand" sound familiar? Don't mess with the Kokomo Dragon.

Back in the day you saw Kokomo spam on every table thanks to their overpowered 'Fleet of Clawed Spaceships' rule.

Ever eaten Kokomo spam? I tell you it gets monotonous.

That's what I thought the reference was for. Is there some other Kokomo thing?


PS: I love the audiophiles who think Kokomo is ther worst thing ever. Apparently the Beach Boys could have been the American Beatles, but made Kokomo instead.

ironicsilence I've run mine as an oversized Wood golem, or a metal golem. Ideally crafted by Sahuagin, or some especially inventive and fiendish Bullywug sorceror. It is a major crowd pleaser.

And of course when in doubt, and when the players are being colossal jerks about your nautical adventure, have their ship turn out to be a mimic. Be eaten by it, or kill it and drown. Bwahahahahahahah!

Here I thought Phineas was a chiropractor I thought the spine on top of the staff and the skull were devices he used to “Know Alignment”. The bad smell around him I just mistook for those scented oils some chiropractors use and one of them just went bad.

I feel like they're kind of dad-jokes of product release reviews.

On the other hand, they never fail to amuse me, even if there's no belly-laughs.

Working on someting you'll either love or hate. Hopefully to be revealed by November.

And we're back with more June releases!

The first big release the monthly Dungeon Dweller model, welcome to...


Lanaerel Grayleaf! Ze is a elven archer out to avenge the death of zer family at hands of the goblins!

Then we have several linch... lynth... lync... were creatures!

Or are we calling them Flesh Walkers now, I forget.



First off some sort of wereflyingsquirrel I believe.



Then a weremonkey or perhaps a weremandrill.

Sorry, no currently released products could be found.


The wereboar has proven unusually elusive for a creature not really known for its stealth.



"Vanja, Fire Giant Queen (Huge)"... sadly body shaming remains an issue even in the Realms of Fairie.



Invisible Kyphrixis, shadow haunter of the Fire Swamps is the arch enemy of Visible Sixirhpyk the legendary Day-Glo Orange Dragon of the Ice Desert.



Speaking of visible... A Coral Golem. How... how do you even build one, do you cast Airy Water and assemble it under the sea? Or contract with Merpeople to gather the materials you need? So many questions.





So did someone ask for Steampunk Wizard of Oz figures? Cause now we have them.

The Lion and winged monkeys are choice.


So much character, that guy just stepped off the pages of pulp novel. He's going to find the route to Skull Island or we're all going to die trying.


A pulpy physician, also usable as a forensic accountant, a Fuller Brush salesman, a somewhat brusk boarder or an outerworldly deamonic entity in human form.


A pulpy psychologist, also usable as an Egyptologist, an officious city official, a self-important department store manager, or the wearer of an acursed pair of specticals that impart the wearer with unearthly powers and equally unholy desires.


Dude with a .22 and a trench coat. Sometimes you gotta go with the classics.


Jane Porter, wife of Tarzan Lord of the Public Domain.


Pulp Hera Female Pilot, there's a name that needs a lot of unpacking. I'll assume the Pulp Hera is a magical scroll that controls or pilots females.


And finally a model a lot of use have been waiting for, the Sledgehammer BFG! Now I just need to paint the one from the kickstarter before its second birthday.

I gotta say I am outright shocked that most buyable models this month are a sea captain, psychologist and doctor. It's really the poses and faces that make them work.

That Tin Woodcutter would work great as a Factotum from the Elder Scrolls series (the Clockwork City has a pretty sci-fi aesthetic, compared to the fantasy look of the games). I'd prefer metal or resin though.

Edit: ooh it is available in metal as an earlier release. Woo, I'll buy a load of them for my Elder Scrolls collection. Those are just the thing for medium Constructs in Frostgrave.
