Kings of War : Herd progress, Avatar of the Father

So at the start of the year I blogged about starting a herd army for Kings of War.  I mentioned that I had plans for an Avatar of the Father model, using an unreleased model from Mierce Minatures, Sia.  Well after asking nicely, I finally received the model recently and got to work on building and painting it.  This post hopefully will review the model and show you how I’ve got it battle ready.

Introducing Scum & Smugglers – Arim

After the success of my first Kickstarter – Frills & Fauna, it seems obvious to me that I should sustain use of the crowd-funding strategy to reach out to an audience. Despite being incredibly niche, the project raised more money than sales of anything else I’ve sculpted, combined. Admittedly, I am fairly new to the scene so that’s not a major statement, but when you are trying to make a living from the art, it’s one hell of a tasty pie to eat from.

So one of the perks of being the brother of a sculptor running a Kickstarter is getting early access to some of the pre-production models.

I’ve had a quick paint up of the Cirripod family and placed them into some sci-fi environments to see how they look…

Frills & Fauna: Glashtin

The next reveal for Frills & Fauna are the Glashtin. The sculpt shown is an adolescent, with diminutive claws. More are likely to follow, as hinted by their behaviour.

Glashtins are a sentient species of water-dwellers. They are not hostile, but will respond to threats swiftly and in great numbers. Their name is taken from ancient folklore – stream or water goblins, known to change form. Their squid-like lower bodies often lead to them being mistaken for other creatures.
