New miniature maker : Ultraforge

Publié le 24 Février 2008 par Hellric dans Miniatures news

While surfing around, my mouse was caught on a the website of a new maker of nightmare miniatures. This one is called Ultraforge, a small company  based in Canada, and run by a couple of young nice people, Sophia and Jeremy. But the most interesting thing is that they have a rare talent that should appeal to many wargamers and collectors of beautifully crafted fantasy miniatures. The details seem amazing, but also the ideas a great and these minis really seem to have a soul and style.

click here : http://www.ultraforgeminiatures.com and check their dryad/treewoman if you want to see wat i mean with inspiration and style...

Here are some WIP shots of their upcoming demons, that's of course what caught my eyes first :)

There are two demons of pestilence (and plague), one of war (Khorne anyone ?) and one of desire (who said Slaanesh ???). These should come out in a few weeks or months with wings options and maybe alternate heads. They should fit on 50x50 mm bases and tower on tabletops, they are cast in resin, price expected in the 60-80 $ range. Which is quite cheap considered that Ultraforge is more in the scope of Forgeworld than your usual GW.


Now I beg for a Cthulhu, please Sophie ;)


SOTA Toys Ultra Cthulhu

Publié le 6 Février 2008 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Yeah, I was right :)

Some times ago, SOTA Toys has shown a shadow of a mysterious upcoming model, and my interpretation was that it was a new version of the Great Cthulhu. Indeed !
But I didn't expect than it would be a high end collector statue 14 inches tall and with a wingspan of 22 inches ! It also weights 249 $ and will come in "extremely limited numbers". No need to say that mine is already preordered ;)

SOTA also announces that Sideshow collectibles will make another variant ... so I'm afraid that 2008 will be hard for my wallet !
