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: Cirripod scale shot

In order to be able to show prospective customers how the final product will look, I had one o fthe family sets cast up before the project launches. The Cirripods arrived today and so I’ve put together a scale shot. Hopefully I will find some time to paint them up tomorrow.

The Kickstarter launches tomorrow at 12pm GMT. That’s 15 hours away!
