If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I was quite enthusiast about the tabletop game from Mr. Sandy Petersen himself, I mean « Cthulhu Wars », and now I have some exciting news to share :
There’s an Onslaught 3 coming, still through Kickstarter as the 2 first editions.
content of this 3rd wave of products is :
- a new complete faction : the Ancients
- new acolytes, each faction has its own design for the acolyte
- new neutral entities : « masks of Nyarlathotep » : Bloated Woman, Dark Demon, Shadow Pharaoh, and « beyond time and space » : hounds of Tindalos, Wamps
- aaaaand, last but not least, a brand new sculpt for my alltimes favorite Great Old One, the Dire Cthulhu ! This sculpt looks more agressive and elaborated, with a crustacean-like armor, 3 pairs of eyes, sharper claws.
Check here all these pretty monsters, wouldn’t you be kind enough to offer them a sweet home ?
Expect a release for june 2018, the Kickstarter campaign should be live soon, but i'll keep you informed as soon as I know the date for the launch !
Just a quick one to share a find : famous French painter Jeremie Bonamant-Teboul has released a very cool Cthulhu resin miniature (68 mm high) for his miniature company "Figone", sculpted by the artist-sculptor extraordinaire Allan Carrasco.
I ordered immediately this one, not only because i'm an addictive collector of all Great Old One related stuff, but because his take on it is very strange and disturbing : it's unusual to have 4 arms and a weapon, the head is full of randomly placed eyes, yet the pose of the hands is very "human" like, it has a bulbous back. Though I won't manage to paint it 1/10th as well as Jérémie did, I can't wait to throw some paint on it !
The new French rising star in the high quality miniatures world is going a step further by presenting miniatures for Scifi games, and those are very sexy and desirable minis : the first models can be used for Imperium or Dark Eldars. Ici, Ivanka :
And for the fantasy side, a great hero for the coming Undead or Tzeentch armies :
Today I discovered a new brand of miniatures and I wanted to share them with you as these are high quality resin miniatures with nice design, and I know many of you play Warhammer 40K, and these would make gorgeous Space Marines Terminator heroes or even Primarch...
Check this one, it would make an awesome Wolf Lord or even the mighty Leman Russ himself :
Or there are models for ecclesiarchs and inquisitors :
... and even Adeptus Mechanicus High priests (my favourite) :
