Title: (Commercial) S.D.Z.A. - Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse Miniatures
Post by: Van-Helsing on July 22, 2014, 12:45:48 PM
First releases Coming Soon - Suave British Agents & F.O.N. Operatives

Any likenesses to characters living, dead, or now bald is purely co-incidental . . . . . .

Finished Sculpts of the first Superhero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse Miniatures!!!

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/10354816_814122851955015_8566328187723370923_n.jpg?oh=8924eb713b62e33365c32ac78db814bc&oe=544A6783)

This first picture shows the first two F.O.N. (Freaks of Nature) Operatives with the alternate Heads in place, the heads each miniature comes with is attached to the models Base.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/v/t1.0-9/994438_814123285288305_800485296104683632_n.jpg?oh=f4a49eb804188ae300c0bc8ff4d542c2&oe=544E3C3E&__gda__=1415142995_0a4ab649e41bee9cf69f2f8a933f4b4a)

The Second Picture shows the finished British Agents, though the heads are attached, they are easily head swapped.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpa1/t1.0-9/10532353_814123305288303_3315113784741607053_n.jpg)

The Last Picture shows the extra F.O.N. Operative heads on their sprue.

FYI - There might be a variant of the Bow Tie dude with a regular collar and tie later on, with a silencer attached to his gun.

He's actually tapping his temple with TWO FINGERS, so another conversion entirely springs to mind there . . . . . . .

The first of Ian Mountains sculpts he's done for me reached Warlock Towers today, and I have to say I am blown away by how gorgeous they are.

Doing thisssort of thing has been a dream of mine since before I worked for Games Workshop - and I won't lie, I got a little emotional when I saw them.

They are absolutely stunning.

I think that the 2nd british agent should come with an alternate head wearing a fez and a right hand holding some sort of noisy power tool. ;)

Nice work.

I think all companies should have a 'first dibs' list, it sounds far less commercial than "contact us to register your interest".  ;)

Great looking figures though and I'm sure they'll all get put to uses none of them were designed for.  :)

Membership of the S.D.Z.A. Facebook group is growing nicely, so - as an incentive for people to get their mates to join (or members of their club etc) something sexy! When we reach 100 members, I will do a draw - the winner will get one of the first four Limited Run Resin Miniatures, but it will be no ordinary miniature - I will convert your chosen Miniature to your own specifications, and paint it - again to your own specifications. It will be totally a "one off" - there will never be another one (for those who aren't aware of my painting and modelling skills - ask around LoL). So, get weaving - 100 members is not that far away!!!

Post by: Legion1963 on August 05, 2014, 08:13:00 PM
Aha....i see and i guess you are right.....in a way. But Zombies, Superheroes, Dinosaurs and Apocalyps all seem to me part of a pulp or other heavily fantasized realm that have their own sections. And i presumed that post - war and modern adventures is an essentialy more historical section. But that could well be my mind playing tricks here  8)

Post by: Van-Helsing on August 05, 2014, 08:19:10 PM
The creatures in the world of S.D.Z.A. are created by Science - none of it is strictly "fantasy", though it is fantastical.

Post by: Brummie Thug on August 05, 2014, 11:49:49 PM

Title: Re: S.D.Z.A. - Superhero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse Miniatures
Post by: Arlequín on August 07, 2014, 12:11:48 AM
As with virtually any 'adventure' setting, SDZA could fit into a number of boards; Pulp, PA, Future Wars and of course here. Is James Bond a pulp hero, or a Post War/Modern adventurer? He is certainly not really historical (that place would go to Harry Palmer perhaps) and there is an element of fantasy and sci-fi in the movies at least. 7TV is also a grey area in terms of where it should go. As all of these are set somewhere between 1945 and the present, even if it is a present imagined from the past, then they have a place here as far as I'm concerned.

You could argue that a near-future conflict between the U.S. & China, or indeed a Cold War Soviet invasion of Europe is not strictly historical, but as is the case with this and other threads, I try to keep an open and quite broad mind.

Myself and Steve (Silent Invader - The PA board mod) did discuss this when the thread started and we settled on here being slightly more suitable than PA, given the somewhat wide swathe of genres planned for the range... as Brummie says, cross posting is not allowed and we try to keep discussions on a single topic in one place.

Two more sculpts for "S.D.Z.A. - Superhero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse" - these work in progress pictures are of two "Mutts" and are being sculpted for me by Martin Buck.

(http://i61.tinypic.com/15p21ad.jpg)

(http://i60.tinypic.com/x444mb.jpg)

The "Mutts" are poor souls are those who, through exposure to early versions of the R.D.S. Virus (Reactive De-evolution Syndrome Virus) ended up as twisted fusions of Dinosaur and Human. They are sad and tragic loners, wandering the barrens till they die. But, luckily some are "taken in" by those who feel sorry for them and want to do something to help them in their plight.

Mutts are the first miniatures I've commissioned that are specific to the S.D.Z.A. Background.

Just had a very VERY Special Deliver today at the Bunker (in other words, "my house" LoL) some samples of the first four SDZA Miniature from the Resin Casters at Open-Fire Figures - and OMG I am lost for words.

Whatever I say is going to seem inadequate for describing how pleased I am with the quality of the castings - I doubt, that when we reach the stage where the SDZA range is produced in metal, they will come up to the standard of these.

They are EXACTLY the same as the Greens. Stunning, simply stunning.

The Prize is a Brand New, bagged and boarded copy of the Dinosaurs Attack Graphic Novel - to give you some inspiration for future Games of S.D.Z.A. :D

If you aren't already a member the Facebook Group can be found Here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/UNI.TECH.HQ/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/UNI.TECH.HQ/)

UNI-TECH SECURITY CONCEPTS AND COMPETITION!

The Uni-Tech Security Troopers concepts are with us at last - Martin Buck has done a fantastic job on these concept drawings, and to celebrate just that - how about a Competition!

What I need from you Guys are ideas for Colour Schemes to paint the Uni-Tech Security Troopers (and this is a Biggie, because it will become the "Official" colour scheme and used on all the Studio Models) - so print the picture off colour it, scan it back in - or do the whole thing digitally - it makes no difference. I'm NOT looking at your skills here, I'm looking at cool colour choices.

The ONLY restriction, you can't use red!

You have till the 14th of September to submit your ideas - by posting them here in the Group. My partner, Linda, will then choose the one she thinks is the best and that captures the Uni-Tec feel!

The winner will get Master Castings of each of the first two Miniatures as a prize, pre-release.

Peeps - the Resin Masters Limited Run Stock HAS ARRIVED and the Website is NOW LIVE! http://www.nexus-miniatures.co.uk/ (http://www.nexus-miniatures.co.uk/)

(http://i60.tinypic.com/i2rnfn.jpg)

I've kept the prices as low as is possible - and my pricing is very competitive compared to other Companies offering Resin Masters for sale.

I have also tried to structure it so that you get at least some discount with larger Purchases.

Sorry these aren't cheaper - but getting things sculpted and cast is not a cheap endeavor, if you don't like the higher prices - or Resin Miniatures - the Metals should be available before Christmas (Fingers Crossed).

The Ten or So Customers on the "DIBS LIST" those miniatures have been kept back - even if these somehow sell out, those Dibs are waiting for you - I'll give you a week or so to place your orders, and then the miniatures will be returned to Stock.

As I pointed out before, there are ONLY 50 of each of these Resin Master Castings available for Purchase - and when they are gone, they are gone.

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me whilst I got all this started - its much appreciated - and to SHOW that Appreciation, in with any orders you will find some Raffle Tickets - you will get one Raffle Ticket per Miniature purchased (sorry guys, but heads don't count LoL) so don't lose them or throw them away (or you won't know your numbers when they are pulled) - the draw will be made when the First Metal Miniatures are released for sale, or the last Resin Limited Release Master is Sold.

The Prizes are as Follows - (Thanks to the Guys at Ral Partha UK for the Prizes)

First Prize - a Ral Partha all metal 28mm Scale Tyranosaurus Rex (RRP £24.95)

Second Prize - a 6 'man' strong all metal 28mm Scale Velociraptor pack (RRP £13.00)

Third Prize - a Ral Partha all metal 28mm Scale Parasaurolophus (RRP £7.00)

Fourth Prize - a Ral Partha all metal 28mm Scale Pteranodon (RRP £6.00)

The more Miniatures you Buy, the More chances you have of winning (the Raffle Tickets will be included with your order, try not to lose them LoL) - if you buy enough Miniatures, it is theoretically possible to win everything!

Please Note - All prizes are final, and no alternative prizes or cash may be claimed in their place. Raffle Tickets are only issued with Miniature Purchases.

Once again, a HUGE thanks to everyone for their Interest in the Project!

Time to announce the Uni-Tech Security Colour Scheme Winners!

OK - Linda quite simply couldn't decide - so she chose three - each of the three Winners will win a Pair of Metal Master Castings when they come through (hurry up Martin LoL) - and the winners are - Earther (Lead Adventure Member), Belgian (Lead Adventure Member), and off Facebook and the Nexus Miniatures Forum Dave Crowther (so expect these colour schemes to "show up" depending on the UNI-SEC Force Involved)

To be frank, we both liked all of them - and even Linda did one LoL!

Either PM me, or Email me at [email protected] with your address and I will post them off as soon as the Master Molds have been made!

For those who have been following S.D.Z.A. (Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse) - sorry there haven't been many updates lately, I've been mentally busy getting the Alpha 2.0 Rules Ready for external Playtesting.

Over a third of each of the Resin Masters have sold - so a big thankyou to everyone for their support, I know Resin Miniatures are a little more expensive - but those of you who have them can attest to the quality of the product - something I hope to continue with the Metal Castings (more on that later).

Carl's (BooBoo's) artwork is coming through fast and furious - up to his usual sterling standard, and the next "wave" after the Metal Releases of the first F.O.N. Operatives Set One, British Secret Agents Set One, and Mutts Set One - are being sculpted (one pack has actually been finished) as I write, and there are "extras" being sculpted as well - for a couple of cool "surprise" releases.

Stay Tuned - and "ALL HAIL THE TWIG!"

Post by: Van-Helsing on October 13, 2014, 01:49:15 PM
Time for a Monday Teaser! These are the "Concepts" for the Rangers drawn by (and to be sculpted by) Martin Buck  - even though there are only two in the Picture, there will actually be three Miniatures available initially - a second Right Handed Male in a firing Pose.

The history of the Organization that became known as the D-Rangers (or Dinosaur-Rangers to give them their full title) began pretty much before that day in 1983 when the Dino-S**t first hit the fan.

Originally the "Rangers" (as they were dubbed back in the old days) were the Staff at the first Dino-Parks - and their membership comprised of the regular Staff, Veterinarians, Paleontologists, Experienced Zoo Keepers, and Animal Behaviour experts hired to work at and maintain the Dino-Parks - when the chaos erupted and the Dinosaurs started roaming wild and free - the remaining government hired those many of the original Rangers to help monitor, subdue, and even capture escaped and wild Dinosaurs in an attempt to control the situation - though their modern Duties and Responsibilities are greater today - as the D-Rangers often Deal with Carrion Outbreaks and Rogue Mutts as well.

Over time huge areas of land were allocated to keep the Dinosaurs contained - there was too much to learn from them, too much benefit from them being around (medicines, food, leather, fertilizer etc) to simply go on a wholesale killing spree, even after the army recovered from the initial chaos of those early days - it was decided that the Rangers would be "in charge" in all Dino matters - "policing" those areas, and would have the last word over capture or destroy.

Years later, the D-Rangers (or just Rangers as they are more commonly referred to) job pretty much remains the same - but recruits now go through a rigorous Training Regimen on how to deal with Dinosaurs of all Types, Mutts, Carrion, and even Civilian Activists.

Being a Ranger is considered to be one of the Toughest jobs on the planet, as these brave Men and Women regularly risk their lives for Civilians and Dinosaurs alike - if there's a Dino problem, the D-Rangers are the ones called in to sort it; and wherever possible, the Dino's in question are caught and impounded - but sadly, it is common in the case of Carnivores that the animal has to be put down - often aggressively.

Though the D-Rangers have access to the best equipment and vehicles, more often than not they prefer to ride specially trained horses - for two reasons. Most Carnivores cannot resist horse flesh, so a lot of the time its the Rangers mount that gets attacked not the Ranger him (or her) self. Secondly, a lot of Herbivores are easily "spooked" by the sound of motor-vehicles - and are much calmer when the Rangers are mounted on horseback. More recently they have been seen riding the "Jet-Stream Motorcycles" - created by Varian Blackwood and produced by VB Technologies. The Jetsreams (as they are commonly called) are almost totally silent, merely giving of a slight hum or faint whine.

The dress code of such a loose organization is (as you could imagine) fairly free-style, in the USA they commonly wear suede jackets sporting their Ranger emblem and many wear Stetsons. In Britain, they again suede jackets - but some British teams also wear colour coded (red, green, blue, yellow etc.) Helmets so each member of a team may be easily identified during a conflict or roundup – the Brit’s helmets often have custom paint schemes and sport dinosaur designs.

No matter where Rangers patrol, what part of the world - or what mounts the ride. They all wear the same emblem, and have the same Motto - Humanitas Colimus (Humanity We Serve). So, whether you live in luxury inside a Cities Walls, or live the Humble life of a Shanty Dweller - remember the Brave men and women of the Rangers who help keep you safe.

The Drawing of the D-Rangers, reminds me a little of the original look of the human pilots from the original Battlestar Galactica TV series fro the late 70s-80s. If these miniatures turn out like the drawing they could also have some other uses, in other sci-fi games.
 Now if you can also get some of the old style Cylons also designed you could have a Superhero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse Robot Miniatures Game.

Sorry Van-Helsing, thanks for the tip about the possible use of the future release of the NATO ASP's as possible "chrome" stand ins. I will be getting some of your D-Rangers for sure when they are ready for release and some of The NATO ASP's. I hope your project is a great success.
Please post some more up date pictures  when thing progress, the miniatures so far look great and I'm looking for some stand in miniatures for some other projects.

Oops! LoL!

OK, about the ASP (Apocalypse Security Personnel) Troopers.

Steve Crisp of Dark Star Miniatures is working on the First Two Troopers - with the Jumpsuited Officers of Babylon Base to be sculpted later on.

The world "officially ended" on May 1, 1983 - I say ended, it didn't blow up or anything - it went with a growl and a whimper, not a bang.

The first "wild" Dinosaurs attacked a small township outside of Sand Francisco - Tiburon, a Small bayside town a little further north of the City - it was attacked by a group of Megaraptor's, which was odd simply from the perspective that according to Uni-Tech Scientists no Megaraptor's had been cloned/created - as they were thought to be too dangerous.

Still, the creatures were found and destroyed (much to the irritation of Uni-Tech) - then mere days later, another attack took place at the main enclosure just outside Las Vegas (where one of the main parks was set to be located) - a Tyrannosaurus Rex, accompanied by an Oviraptor, and infant T-Rex, and half a dozen Utah Raptors broke through the electrified fence, the Utah Raptors systematically targeted certain areas of the fencing - the forced the Oviraptor against one specific area till it shorted out. People who saw the attack said it was weird, that the adult Tyrannosaur seemed to be "guiding" the rest - when they took the fencing down, the Carnivores - as a group, rather than attacking and eating the Herbivores in the enclosure, they herded them back through the gap - and into the desert.

As a result of these "unusual" attacks (and many more, way too many to list here) the A.S.P. Apocalypse Security Personnel) section of NATO was formed - their mandate was simple, seek and destroy these "new threats" as and when they appear.

The newly setup task force is headed up by Group Captain Simon 'Gil' Moore OF-5, formally of the British RAF and was allowed to keep his rank title upon his insistence and initial rejection of the transfer. He was offered the post after successfully defending the HMS Seasprite when it was docked at Portsmouth and was attacked by a number of Rhomaleosaurus.

It's a matter of fact the brave men and women of A.S.P. form the very core of the defense against the perils that afflict the Modern World.

Time for the "Monday Teaser", this time its about Mercenary's and Rebels.

I've talked about "official" Organizations in the past, whether it be D-Rangers, Uni-Tech, or the NATO A.S.P. Troopers. But what about Mercenary's and Rebels - you know what I mean, the "average guy in the street" who turned out to be "no so average".

There are those who "fight back" against the Environment, the City-State Governments, or Corporations like Uni-Tech. These "Rebels" are often just disgruntled about some policy or intervention by some official body that leaves them disadvantaged in some-way - but more often than not, they are private Citizens with a serious "Axe to Grind".

The two guys in this Concept Sketch by Sculptor Martin Buck are two such disgruntled citizens - ready for action, and equipped with a Modern Subsonic Blaster and the more conventional Sub Machine Gun - they seek to fight against Corporate and Political Injustice and try to uncover the Truth about Corporations such as Uni-Tech.

The Guy with the Subsonic Blaster also comes with a second right arm, which is holding a fairly bulky Video Camera (very 80's) for those times when you just HAVE to get the evidence down on Tape.

You know, I keep forgetting about LA (sorry LA Guys) when I do updates - so expect quite a few over the next few days - concepts and greens.

First of all, the first American Agents Set - both Sculpted by Ian Mountain.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/6f1klk.jpg)

(http://i62.tinypic.com/2mrcnc8.jpg)

As Agents for D.O.I. (Division Of Investigation) - Wolfe Sculder and Katherine Mulley have a clear mission statement, investigate Criminal Activites outside the Mandate of the United American City States Police Authorities - but their work has taken a far more 'interesting' turn.

Uni-Tech, Jorōgumo Industries, and the Montgomery Initiative all have hidden agendas - leaks of information, deep cover investigations, and informers have taken them closer and closer to the truth.

Shocking as it might be - The Truth Is Out There . . . . . .

In the world of S.D.Z.A. (Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse) Uni-Tech Security are more than just rentacops or night time Security Guards - they are the Military Arm of Uni-Tech, and are pretty much as well trained and well armed (often better so) than any City State standing Army.

Based at Uni-Tech Installations around the world, they can be seen in many different coloured Uniforms - often dictated not only by country, but by that particular Installations Commanding Officer.

(http://i61.tinypic.com/2jsaxf.jpg)
Initial Concept Drawings (I know some of you had seen this before, but I am including it for completeness)

(http://i59.tinypic.com/2njkapc.jpg)
Picture 01 - Uni-Tech Security Officer wearing Cap.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/33zfa54.jpg)
Picture 02 - Uni-Tech Security Trooper wearing Standard Riot Helmet.

(http://i58.tinypic.com/1zlglj8.jpg)
Picture 03 - Uni-Tech Security Officer with bare head from Head Sprue.

(http://i61.tinypic.com/2q82eu0.jpg)
Picture 04 - Uni-Tech Security Trooper wearing Elite Trooper Helmet.

The Concepts and Miniatures were Drawn and Sculpted by Martin Buck, The Officer is wearing a Cap and the Trooper a standard Riot Helmet - both will be cast with Separate Heads for maximum flexibility - and a separate head sprue with a bare head and an Elite Trooper Helmet will also be available (pictures 3 & 4 show those options).

The next stage planned is to do a couple of more Trooper variants, and a Female Officer (with two head options).

Doctor Victor Makalay is the leader of the resistance organization known only as "The Brotherhood" - Resistance - perhaps you find that an odd choice of word - not really, not to members of the Brotherhood - they fight against the Uni-Tech Corporation and Government corruption, and against the Money Grubbing Politicians who take corporate handouts.

Rogue Primes, Mutt's, and Morlocks make up the Ranks of the Brotherhood - all who are outcasts are welcome, including Norms - and are treated like Brothers.

Makalay is a VERY powerful Telekinetic - people have watched as the Doctor literally tore people apart with his mind, without blinking, or breaking a sweat.

Civilians, or "Norms" as Makalay calls them are all treated with respect - and maybe a little pity, as they aren't "blessed" with Prime Abilities - but Uni-Tech, the Provisional American Government, and those that side with them are treated with Utter Hatred and Contempt.

Pisacha is his "right hand" and is afforded the respect such a position warrants - she too is a Prime - she can 'influence' any Man, though its not a form of Telepathy - the Virus had altered her glands and her pheromone strength and production was off the charts - no man can resist her, and she hates it.

These are my first two "Rogue" Prime Miniatures and were sculpted by Ian Mountain, original crappy concepts by me (and no, I am not showing you) Artwork by Carl Stoelzel.

Dr. Makalay comes with two Heads - including a scaly Helmeted "Mutant Leader" style head.

Today for S.D.Z.A. a further look at those who "fight back" against the System - against the City-State Governments, or Corporations like Uni-Tech and Jorōgumo Industries.

These "Rebels" are often just disgruntled about some policy or interference by an official body that has an impact on them in some-way - but more often than not, they are private Citizens with a serious "Axe to Grind".

These two guys were crafted for me by Sculptor Martin Buck - two average joes, willing to stand up for whats right.

The First Guy, who is a keen Amateur Video Enthusiast - has turned his hobby into a powerful tool to share information about the evil and the corrupt - he comes with the usual Separate Head, for ease of conversion - and is equipped with a Modern Subsonic Blaster and also comes with a Video Camera Arm too!

The second guy is much more grass roots - rough and ready with the more conventional 'tough guy' Sub Machine Gun.

Between them, alongside their brothers and sisters in the fight - they struggle against Corporate and Political Injustice around the world.

Post by: Van-Helsing on November 22, 2014, 08:20:55 PM
The history of the Organization that became known as the D-Rangers (or Dinosaur-Rangers to give them their full title) began pretty much before that day in 1983 when the Dino-S**t first hit the fan.

Originally the "Rangers" (as they were dubbed back in the old days) were the Staff at the first Dino-Parks - and their membership comprised of the regular Staff, Veterinarians, Paleontologists, Experienced Zoo Keepers, and Animal Behaviour experts hired to work at and maintain the Dino-Parks - when the chaos erupted and the Dinosaurs started roaming wild and free - the remaining government hired those many of the original Rangers to help monitor, control, and even capture escaped and wild Dinosaurs in an attempt to control the situation - though their modern Duties and Responsibilities are greater today - as the D-Rangers often Deal with Carrion Outbreaks and Rogue Mutts as well.

Over time huge areas of land were allocated to keep the Dinosaurs contained - there was too much to learn from them, too much benefit from them being around (medicines, food, leather, fertilizer etc) to simply go on a wholesale killing spree, even after the army recovered from the initial chaos of those early days - it was decided that the Rangers would be "in charge" in all Dino matters - "policing" those areas, and would have the last word over capture or destroy.

Years later, the D-Rangers (or just Rangers as they are commonly referred to) job pretty much remains the same - but recruits now go through a rigorous Training Regimen on how to deal with Dinosaurs of all Types, Mutts, Carrion, and even Civilian Activists.

Being a Ranger is considered to be one of the Toughest jobs on the planet, as these brave Men and Women regularly risk their lives for Civilians and Dinosaurs alike - if there's a Dino problem, the D-Rangers are the ones called in to sort it; and wherever possible, the Dino's in question are caught and impounded - but sadly, it is common in the case of Carnivores that the animal has to be put down - often aggressively.

Though the D-Rangers have access to the best equipment and vehicles, more often than not they prefer to ride specially trained horses - for two reasons. Most Carnivores cannot resist horse flesh, so a lot of the time its the Rangers mount that gets attacked not the Ranger him (or her) self. Secondly, a lot of Herbivores are easily "spooked" by the sound of motor-vehicles - and are much calmer when the Rangers are mounted on horseback. When they do use Vehicles, they are seen riding the "Jet-Stream Motorcycles" - created by Varian Blackwood and produced by VB Technologies. The Jetsreams (as they are commonly called) are almost totally silent, merely giving of a slight hum or faint whine.

The dress code of such a loose organization is (as you could imagine) fairly free-style, in the USA they commonly wear suede jackets - generally in browns and beiges, sporting their Ranger emblem -some even wear Stetsons. In Britain, they again suede jackets - generally black or dark Grey - and some British teams also wear colour coded (red, green, blue, yellow etc.) Helmets so each member of a team may be easily identified during a conflict or roundup – the Brit’s helmets often have custom paint schemes and sport dinosaur designs.

No matter where Rangers patrol, what part of the world - or what mounts the ride. They all wear the same emblem, and have the same Motto - Humanitas Colimus (Humanity We Serve). So, whether you live in luxury inside a Cities Walls, or live the Humble life of a Shanty Dweller - remember the Brave men and women of the Rangers who help keep you safe.

Sounds great, thanks. Will it be possible to buy individual models too or maybe a set of just Unitech Troopers?

I could probably use more than one trooper, but not as many officers as troopers  ;)

Post by: Van-Helsing on November 24, 2014, 01:49:05 PM
The way it works with the Molds is initially no - you are stuck buying the Troopers individually (as whats in each mold, and thereby whats in each production run is "set") or a Pair (one Officer, One Trooper) but dont forget the "Elite Troopers" (the Gold Helmet dudes, one of which has a head on the "head sprue") carried Pistols, so there is a reason to buy more than one "Officer".

(http://i61.tinypic.com/2q82eu0.jpg) (Elite Trooper Head of Rifled Trooper Body)

HOWEVER, when the next batch of Troopers are sculpted (in the new year) yes, there will be a "Trooper only Deal" as well

One of the Poses has the Rifle in one hand and "up" - he's getting a Pistol Hand (or Arm depending on what Martins happy with) for just that Purpose :D

Post by: Van-Helsing on December 06, 2014, 08:02:18 PM
I waxed lyrical about the ASP Troopers (what seems like an age ago on the 13th of October), their History and Gear - and even shared an image of the alternate Helmet for them before if you all remember - but I never really explained why they needed the different helmet, and who would wear such a thing.

Not seen by many, and unknown to the Masses - the Brotherhood do in fact have a standing Army. Comprised of rogue F.O.N. Operatives, Morlocks, Human Sympathizers, and the mysterious Caprican Legion.

The original Caprican Legionnaires were former ASP Troopers who manifested Mutations brought upon by the R.D.S. Virus - the crack 12 Man team led by Major Caprican, fearing for their position and status - not only within the Ranks of the ASP Troopers, but also society as a whole, vanished into the Wilderness. Taking with them a cache of ASP Trooper weapons and gear Only to show up some time later fighting amongst the ranks of the Brotherhood as the black clad Caprican Legion.

The Caprican Legionnaires are never seen without their Unique Helmets, different in design to the Regulation ASP Trooper gear - more menacing and completely covering their heads. The stories go that the Legionnaires are so deformed, so twisted by the R.D.S. Virus - that they never show their faces out of shame.

Other stories tell of them augmenting their slowly decaying bodies with stolen Varian Blackwood Technology, and that they are more Machine than Man now - held together by their Black Armour and stolen and forced into service merged with their twisted and broken forms.

Utterly Loyal to Major Caprican and totally ruthless, when fighting the Legionnaires barely utter a sound other than in response to their Leader - "By Your Command" . .

Things continue apace, a few (ongoing) niggles along the way.

Casting issues have put things back - problems with Production Molds throwing everything off timing-wise in one way, but (putting a positive spin on it) meaning that the newer production molds will now have a spread of all the sculpts so far, including the most recent ones.

The new Euro V.A.T. Laws have made my PDF Plans rather redundant - so I have decided to make the Actual Rules totally Free of Charge - with new Scenarios and Profiles for those Scenarios being released (again FOC) periodically, this (of course) affects the Production of the Print Rulebook - with that now being dependent on Miniature sales (and number of Free Rules downloads) to give an indication of how popular it will be, and whether its production is warranted sooner rather than later.

In addition, profile sheets (or a PDF if you prefer, totally your choice) for any Miniatures purchased - will now be part of all orders made after the Rules are released (anyone who purchased Miniatures prior to the rules release should email me on or after the day the Rules are out, and I'll sort you out with Profiles).

So, there you go - still loads to do (as always) and (to be frank) it's just as exciting to me, as things are still moving forward (I can't wait for the new year when everyone's back at work properly - Martin Buck is doing a great Job on the A.S.P. Troopers/Caprican Legion Miniatures - "By Your Command" - I can't wait to show you those).

The F.O.N. Troopers, are the Initiatives standing Security Force - have a slightly different Uniform to the F.O.N. Operatives – sporting more Padding, a Helmet with Built In Scanner Visor – and carrying Weaponry. Stun Stick, Heavy Subsonic Blaster Rifle, and Heavy Subsonic Blaster Pistol being the most commonly seen in the field.

By the early 90's the world of S.D.Z.A. was in utter chaos - with the resulting depletion of the Population, many Police Groups, Army Bases, and Security Forces found themselves with seriously reduced numbers of active personnel - and so, the Sentry programme began.

Sentry Units were first created by Blackwood Industries as an automated defense Drone. Their purpose was a simple one - they could be programmed to protect and individual or location against a Specific Threat by loading their sensors with the Targets genetic code, this focuses their attention on their "targets" (Carrion, Dinosaurs, Truebreeds etc) and made them Harmless, to other life forms.

So far they have been drafted into service by the D-Rangers and the A.S.P. Troopers - though for some reason the F.O.N. Operatives of the Initiative seem to distrust them.

Some time later it came to light that Uni-Tech had their own (secret) Sentry Program - one with a more sinister Purpose, to eradicate Primes, Brotherhood, and Rebels.

Over the years Sentrys have been stolen by various shady organizations, and reprogrammed to fit the needs of their new Masters - leaving them both a useful ally and a threat worldwide.

Today I will start sharing some background and factions that will eventually lead up to the release of the Public Beta, the Playtesters have already read this - so its not for them LoL.

About the S.D.Z.A. Setting

Imagine a world rocked by revelation, a world where Dinosaurs roam free outside of walled cities, Zombie outbreaks are a common and ever increasing threat, Mutant Superheroes fight to keep the status quo, and Mutant Super-Villains seek to end it, Hunters and Freelance Dinosaur Wranglers rub shoulders in seedy bars selling their services to the highest bidder. Whilst inside the intact surviving Walled cities of the world, Rich Industrialists seek to solve the problems they created whilst holding onto their wealth and power.

(http://i60.tinypic.com/16gg1ec.jpg)

A world similar to our own, but distinctly different - THAT is the world of Superhero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse. Some will insist it’s a dystopian view of the future, it's not - it’s our world, here and now.

But a version of it where the s**t has truly hit the fan.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/206d8c4.jpg)

Same as it Never Was . . . . .

In S.D.Z.A. the current year is 2014 - "The Year of Chaos" was 1983. The world went down a totally different path to our own world - let’s look at the "little things" rather than the "big picture". Something’s are the same, but other things wouldn't have changed, the focus on development of new equipment and technologies would have leaned away from entertainment and leisure towards medicine and survival.

"Portable" phones are huge and clunky Radio Phones - with no regular satellite launches and no towers being built here, there, and everywhere, so there could be no mobile phone revolution. Generally, in a world where "survival" is key - leisure items become less important, and urgent technology takes the forefront in development and research.

(http://i57.tinypic.com/aa7qcm.jpg)

We might have DVD's, but it’s doubtful BluRay would have come about. We might have CD's, but again doubtful if MP3 players have been invented. In a world where there are new diseases, new security devices needed, and new man portable weapon design becomes imperative - such luxury leisure items would fall way behind.

I'd like to Think Vinyl LP's were still used, winning over CD's because of the thousands of people with record players and CD players NOT becoming cheaper because there was no way cheaply mass producing them – what with China and Japan being cut off trade wise from the rest of the world.

Motor Vehicles would not be the electronic gadget ridden Miniatures we have today - but robust mechanical vehicles, designed for function over style or luxury - with recycling now being VERY important to survival, Cars would be kept for decades - often handed down to family members. Kit Cars would be very popular, custom made bodywork and reclaimed
engines. The same would apply to Motor Cycles, although they wouldn't be very popular - with people seeking the safety of an armoured vehicle instead.

But it is also a World of Contradictions, with Corporations such as Blackwood Industries, Uni-Tech, and Jorōgumo Industries utilize Weapons and Vehicles way beyond the Technology of the time!

(http://i61.tinypic.com/11uizkp.jpg)

The world of S.D.Z.A. might be stable now, but compared to our World - it would have a LOT of catching up to do . . . . . . .

Today, a little more History - About Dinosaurs, Carrion, and Primes (it's quite a long one, so get stuck in)

That's Just The Way It Is . . . . . .

S.D.Z.A. (Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse) is set in a Universe different and yet very parallel to our own.

In 1983 (generally referred to as the "Year of Chaos" a number of Projects put into motion by obsessive greed of the Mega Corporation known as 'Uni-Tech' caused the world to be plunged into mayhem - the fences of the Uni-Tech Dino-Parks came tumbling down, leading to widespread Dinosaur Attacks and 'other' more unexpected problems.

It all (pretty much) started in the mid 1960's when British Secret Agent Jacob Nexus, was investigating Uni-tech at the behest of the British Government - and as a consequence was exposed to a process that was code named Project Rebirth - the accidental exposure left Nexus Virtually Immortal and with amazing Regenerative Powers. He was (for all intents and purposes) Indestructible - even when his body is completely destroyed, Nexus now fully regenerates - returning to with his memories and experiences intact, but with a different face and slightly different personality (something which vexed his superior at the Ministry, a woman known only as Fairfax, greatly).

To really understand a little of what led to the Creation of the Dinosaurs, where the Carrion came from, and how man now lives side by side with in the modern world - we need to take a look at a section from the History of the S.D.Z.A. World

1947 - An Alien Craft crashes in Roswell, New Mexico - before it is recovered by the US Military, several enterprising Civilians are seen running from the wreckage carrying heavy metallic items - the individuals are never caught or identified. Fearing that private citizens now have Alien Technology under their control, an executive order from U.S. President Harry S. Truman causes the creation of a branch of the secret service, dedicated to the Investigation of Extra-Terrestrial Activity - they are known only as Majestic 12. MJ12 Dubs these citizens 'Greymen'.

1951 - Several major corporations have major technological and pharmaceutical breakthroughs made by new Employees - these still unidentified individuals, quickly rise to power and influence - taking stock options and making private financial investments. These Greymen left their employment in 1954 - taking a lot of their discoveries and business contacts with them.

1955 - Uni-Tech is formed, it becomes obvious to both the British and American Governments that the Greymen are intent on infiltrating and controlling powerful business and political circles.

1959 - Uni-Tech, who at this time were using Lone-Star Instruments (a Uni-Tech subsidiary) as a front for their 'new innovations' - introduces "the Micro Chip".

1962 - British Intelligence and the Federal Bureau of Investigations begin their investigations of Uni-Tech.

1963 - Kennedy is Assassinated - Kennedy was preparing to amend the National Labour Relations Board statutes and various Internal Revenue Service statues that would prevent foreign flag shipping from being exempt from American income taxes, Uni-Tech knew this would benefit their competitors thus weakening their financial stranglehold on American Business Practices. MJ12 knew of this plan, but as Kennedy had recently declared to Captain Martin Black (the head of Majestic 12) that he would be shutting them down, as they were proving ineffectual at bringing the Greymen to account - as a consequence MJ12 and their 'friends' in the C.I.A. allowed the assassination to take place.

1964 - British Agent Jacob Nexus is exposed to the Project Rebirth Technology, as a result he finds it has bestowed amazing regenerative powers upon him - he is the world’s First Prime.

1967-1969 - It was later revealed that Elvis Presley was working undercover as a federal agent for the American President Protection committee. This was a cover up - Presley was actually working Undercover for MJ12 - as Majestic were convinced that the Uni-Tech had infiltrated the Music Industry.

1971 - Uni-Tech send two of their best operatives Mr Smith and Mr Glover up against British Agent Jacob Nexus, Mr Smith and Mr Glover manage to terminate (or so they thought) Agent Nexus whilst Nexus is on a Mission to Nevada investigating Willard Dean, an eccentric Billionaire. Nexus miraculously recovers, even though his head, face, and body were smashed beyond repair - and for the first time exhibits full bodily Regeneration. When he has fully recovered, he is quite literally a new man. This proves to Uni-Tech that Project Rebirth works (albeit in an unusual and unpredicted way) - and so Uni-Techs work on Project Rebirth continues with a new urgency.

(http://i60.tinypic.com/2vdjj11.jpg)

1971 - London Bridge is brought to the U.S. - the process is funded by Uni-Tech, it is not known why.

1974 - U.S. President Nixon is forced to resign by Uni-Tech; they are blackmailing him over events that DIDN'T become Public Knowledge. The Watergate fiasco was just a warning to Nixon that Uni-Tech meant business.

1975 - Uni-Tech reveals its plans for Project Rebirth to the Public, the revivification of Dinosaurs for scientific research and 'Ressurective Preservation' - as the Uni-Tech PR Team calls it. Starting with the Dinosaurs first (in theory the most difficult of subjects) they plan on returning all extinct species to their natural environment. To make the cloning process fast and efficient, they use (in theory) useless DNA code from a harmless Virus to speed up the cellular replication process.

1976 - The First tests of Virus Compatibility with Dinosaur DNA go horribly wrong, these mistakes escape the laboratory - resulting in the deadly flesh eating Virus Outbreaks in the Sudan and Zaire.

1976 - The First Dinosaurs begin to grow rapidly in the controlled growth tanks at a Uni-Tech research Laboratory in Nevada. The three Compsognathus test subjects reach full maturity in just 30 Days.

1978 - The First Test-Tube Baby is born finally proving the Viability of the Re-Birth process - this achievement becomes Uni-Tech's biggest and most successful PR project.

1978 - Uni-Tech, now having reached a position where they can viably Grow any Dinosaur species they want within a matter of weeks - Announce their plans to create Dinosaur Wildlife preserves around the world, the basic "tour" will have a nominal cost of entry to the public - but "V-I-P" tours would also be available for the super rich, who have a desire to get closer to these amazing Animals.

1979 - The Uni-Tech research facility under Three Mile Island has an flesh eating Virus outbreak, hundreds of Staff become infected. The spread of the disease is unprecedented; mostly because those infected became violent and and tried to bite the non-infected. Such physical contact spreads the contagion readily. Uni-Tech decides to detonate a small yield Nuclear Device to "cleanse" the underground facility - this leads to a partial nuclear meltdown in the Power Station above.

1981 - As a side effect of the Uni-Tech Re-Birth research - various new S.T.D.s are released on an unsuspecting public. This information is not publicly known, so Uni-Tech are not held accountable - Journalists, Researchers, and Doctors all begin to theorize as to the origins of these new diseases.

1981 - The first Dino-Parks start to open, outside Windsor in the UK, Las-Vegas in the USA, Saint-Tropez in Europe, Sydney in Australia.

(http://i57.tinypic.com/kew8ia.jpg)

1981 - The first new Primes (a term coined by the British press when referring to anyone with super-normal powers) start to appear - in London a Boy picks up and throws a Car whilst having a Tantrum, whilst in New York a man 'Flies' to save a the life of his brother who's fallen off a twenty story buildings Roof. Scientists are baffled; there is seemingly no explanation for this.

1982 - Smaller Dino-Parks start opening all over the world - by this time Uni-Tech have re-created Prehistoric Plant Life as well. Despite some "shaky" research, Uni-Techs plans are going well - and they are hailed as the "Saviours of the Modern Age" - as Project Re-Birth could in theory end Poverty and Famine in our time.

1982 - The first Carrion outbreak occurs Pennsylvania - in particular the cities of Pittsburgh and Monroeville get overrun. The outbreak started in a Uni-Tech research facility just outside of Pittsburgh. Within weeks such outbreaks are happening all over the world. These 'Carrion' (the US press describes these walking dead as "Carrion") are becoming more and more of a public health and safety issue.

1982 - A Carrion Outbreak in the Nevada Desert causes the Dinosaurs to escape the enclosures at the Dino-Park there. Chaos ensues; pretty soon Las Vegas is overrun by Carrion - and the various Carnivores that escaped the Park start picking off the survivors. By the time a Nuclear Strike is agreed on by the Pentagon - it is too late. As Victorville, Barstow and Baker are overrun. For some reason there seems to be way more Dinosaurs at large (including species that were never originally present on the tours) than were in the enclosures at the Dino-Park.

1983 - Dinosaur Attacks are Widespread, the Carrion are becoming more and more of a problem - fortunately the Larger Carnivores stop the Carrion from completely taking over, and the Carrion stop the smaller Predators becoming too much of an issue for local populations. A Nuclear response is no longer viable - as both the Dinosaurs and the Carrion are too wide spread now.

(http://i61.tinypic.com/1zlsnm0.jpg)

1983 - Things are beginning to stabilize, huge walls are erected around the surviving Cities that have the resources to do so - mankind is now spread out - Communication and Trade between these City States becomes a huge priority.

In the last thirty years the surviving population of the World now live within Walled "City States" - both Wales, Scotland and Mexico sealed themselves off from the world and the first signs of Trouble - Wales and Scotland still flourish, but Mexico fell to a massive Carrion Outbrake - and is referred to as "Tierra de los Muertos" (the "Land of the Dead") - chancers and adventurers, still climb its walls to enter - looking for loot, or bloody fun.

A huge Earthquake rocked California, destroying much of Santa Barbara and Los Angeles - now a huge walled community known as San Angeles stands on what remains of the coastline (after much of it fell into the sea) - San Angeles is the center of Technology and Learning for the U.C.S.A. (United City States of America)

The Neo-Germanic Alliance grew out of the ashes of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Belgium - banding together to create the Alliance after their armies and populations became so diminished and spread out. Underground railways link the City States of Berlin, Vienna, Zürich, Brussels together - forming a strong community spread across the four Countries. This has not been without its problems, as a desire to expand and the need for resources has caused the N.G.A. to lock horns with other Nations and City States.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/10cl0td.jpg)

Greater London (basically what remains of London and its surrounding areas), Wotan (a huge area that spans Wolverhampton, Dudley, and Birmingham), and smaller walled communities dotted about, have all seen Dinosaurs rampaging through their streets. When disaster struck, a large chunk of greater London was lost - Bekenham, Romford, and Croydon were overrun by Carrion and sealed off from the rest of the City, those districts are now overgrown with strange prehistoric plant life - like some huge pre-historic safari park, the Carrion are all but gone, either rotted away or eaten by smaller Carnivorous Dinosaurs.

On the whole, most Dinosaurs stay close to the City Walls, they seem to be attracted to the smell and the noise. Gun emplacements and electrified netting keep most at bay, and there are very few Dinosaur Incursions (or Carrion Outbreaks) these-days - but they remain an ever present danger.

The Berlin wall came down during the Year of Chaos, with everything going on in the World Germany really needed to pull together to survive.

Berlin nearly fell to Carrion in 1986, ironically - if the "wall" had been standing, it would have made the situation much easier to contain,

Dave will be starting them soon, Im hoping for a "miami vice" look to them - each will have two heads - and the arms will be separate.

The first three Carrion will have a lot of possibilities, the next Three will be wearing Uni-Tech Uniforms, a FON Uniform, and a Ranger Uniform.

In S.D.Z.A. there is plenty of choice and it’s not a case of you can ONLY take certain things in certain Factions – there are a lot of ‘mix and match’ possibilities. Good vs Evil are pretty much the only restrictions, and even then with mind controlling psychotropic drugs and electronic control collars - that line can get a little Fuzzy.

Humanity

At the end of the Day, the Earth is filled with people – normal folks just trying to do their job, or even survive. These are the regular “Human” Factions that n the base game.

Regular Folk – Not So Regular.

A lot of people spend most of their lives within the City States, the surviving Communities during the Year of Chaos walled themselves off – only rarely trading with other City States. Corruption became rife in a lot of these cut off communities – they rarely let in new blood, and almost Gladiatorial Games became norm as entertainment – Shanty Dwellers (those who live in shacks and old trailers just outside the city walls) would fight for the right of Citizenship, but even those who won rarely survived their wounds to join the elite. Even when they did, life inside the safety of the Walls was rarely what they expected.

Self Sufficiency and Recycling became the key to survival both inside and out of the Walled Cities – food gets recycled as fertilizer or feed for livestock, bodily waste from both humans and animals gets turned into fuel. Nothing is wasted.

All these factors go to make for tough and hardy stock (not to mention they are cunning) and these “types” form the Core of the Human Faction. Rednecks, Shanty Dwellers, City Security, Wasteland Warriors – all are possible within the S.D.Z.A. Rules and Setting.

(https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/11090953_997137313653567_1142893590847053880_o.jpg)

The Rangers have what is considered to be one of the Toughest jobs on the planet, these brave Men and Women regularly risk their lives for Civilians and Military alike - if there's a Dinosaur, Wildlife, or Territory problem, they are the ones called in to sort it. The Ranger Movement (or D-Ranger/Dinosaur Ranger depending upon your preference) grew from the Staff at the first Dino-Parks - originally their membership comprised of the regular Staff, Veterinarians, Paleontologists, Experienced Zoo Keepers, and Animal Behavior experts hired to work at and maintain the Dino-Parks – during the Year of Chaos when the Dinosaurs escaped the Dino-Parks, and  started roaming wild and free - the remaining governments of the world hired most  of the original Rangers to help monitor, control, and even capture escaped and wild Dinosaurs in an attempt to control the situation - though their modern Duties and responsibilities are greater today – acting as border guards and peacekeepers,  Rangers often Deal with Carrion Outbreaks and Criminal Problems outside a City States walls as well.

Cops and Government Types - Special Agents, the Military and Private Security – then there are the “Super Troopers” (as the general Population call them) the super-elite A.S.P. Troopers of N.A.T.O. With the increased need for Military Aid during (and after) the Year of Chaos – N.A.T.O.s mandate became more that of a World Military Police Force, than just a European Peace Keeping force.

The Rebels - those that fight against corrupt City State Governments and Corporations like Uni-Tech. This mixed bag of Civilians, Mercenaries, and ex-Military – believe the Corporations (especially Uni-Tech) are at the center of all the worlds troubles, and unlike the World Government and the local Governments of the City States who debate endlessly about the world and its problems. The Rebels take Direct Action, often violently. Hero’s to some, criminals to others – its a fact that the Rebels are a force to be reckoned with.

In addition, Human Factions can get "Big Guy" Backup from Sentry's (huge self-aware machines – originally created by Varian Blackwood), and M.A.T.A.T.s (Mobile All Terrain Armoured Transports) the Armour of choice for the A.S.P. Troopers.

 :D I giddily took receipt of the following Nexus goodness today -

• Uni-Tech Security Officer 01 (Cap and Pistol)
• Uni-Tech Security Trooper 01 (Helmet, Visor Down and Rifle)
• Uni-Tech Security Heads Set 01 (Bare Head and Elite Trooper Helmet)
• Revolutionary/Merc 01 ("Porky" Ironsides, armed with UZI)
• Revolutionary/Merc 02 ("Do Gooder" Marcus, armed with Uni-Tech Blaster Pistol, and separate Camera)
• D-Ranger 01 (Codename Helios)
• D-Ranger 02 (Codename Galicia)
• D-Ranger 03 (Codename Joey)
• D-Ranger Helmet Sprue

They are all absolutely superb sculpts, nice and hefty with bags of character, and they have triggered all manner of game ideas in my meagre brain. The only problem I have is which to paint up first - most probably the Uni-Tech security guards… and I'm going to need SH*T LOADS!  :o lol

Kudos to Nexus for scratching that 80s SF itch so damned well! A fantastic range and highly recommended. Thanks VH!

Also, to celebrate the release of the Sentry
Loving the Sentry. Only real peeve i have is the head. For me i think it needs to be wider and a bit more squat. Say square in total and less rectangle.
Past that i am loving it.
Will there be more hand attachments in the future?

Post by: Van-Helsing on April 06, 2015, 08:07:37 PM
Robin Hill, was a very talented guy - he helped me greatly with various projects. Including "Angels Carrying Savage Weapons", that grew into the (as of yet) Unseen Legendary Modern Fantasy Game, and Captain Ruby (a homage to Captain Scarlet) that grew into the "World Police" for S.D.Z.A.

He sadly passed away before he saw S.D.Z.A. come to life fully, but at least some of his work lives on as part of the larger S.D.Z.A. universe - though you won't be seeing the "World Allied Security Patrol" for a while yet, but as I am feeling more than a little sentimental at the moment - here is a brief look at the W.A.S.P.s of Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse.

The W.A.S.P.s or the "World Allied Security Patrol" as it is officially known - grew out of the various Police Forces around the world, as things changed and governments floundered during the year of chaos (and what followed).

The W.A.S.P.s operate in every major City State across the Globe, and have jurisdiction pretty much anywhere - and are co-ordinated by a central agency known as "The Nest", based in Geneva.

The W.A.S.P.s are administered by NATO, and function as a world Police and Rescue Force, with backup from the NATO A.S.P. Military Units as and when they might be needed.

Funded by the many City States around the world, with boosters from Varian Blackwood - and even though they don't need them, they also receive donations from Corporations trying to "look good" in the eyes of the public.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/29f5ilt.jpg)

Armed and Equipped with the latest Arms and Light Personal Armour, the W.A.S.P.s also have an array of vehicles to enable them to Police and Rescue those in need around the world, in the most hostile Environments available.

(http://i59.tinypic.com/2zeea6f.jpg) (http://i59.tinypic.com/ay8uua.jpg)

The Bison is the Agency's support vehicle - a lot of the W.A.S.P. Agents prefer the Bison's larger and more robust frame to that of the lighter Wolverine pursuit Vehicle. Though generally, these support vehicles are regarded by the public who observe them in action as being unarmed - that is not the case, as a Bison is covered in compartments where weaponry (often quite impressive and large) remains hidden till required.

(http://i57.tinypic.com/34o7wbc.jpg)

The Wolverine is faster off road than any modern police pursuit vehicle driving at speed on road. The Wolverine is tough, versatile, and pack a punch - armed with twin Subsonic Cannons, and a Rotary Cannon.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/314sfac.jpg)

The Raptor is a mid to long range pursuit vehicle - capable of self sustained gravitic flight (that is it "hovers" via anti gravity repulsors, rather than using thrusters) and works on a similar principle to the MK I Cobra L.A.S. (Low Altitude Skimmer) - and can be fitted with a selection of mid-to-low powered weaponry, and has a secondary seating area hidden behind the Cockpit which can comfortably carry two additional people.

(http://i62.tinypic.com/v8onb4.jpg)

The Icharus Class Interceptor - capable of Flight, VTOL, and acting as a Submersible vehicle - and is capable of achieving a launch from under the water. Icharus Class Interceptor's can also be re-equipped for use as short range Space Craft should this be required for high altitude flight and orbital space travel. Using Conventional Projectile Weapons, Missiles, and Subsonic Weaponry - the Icharus Class Interceptor is pretty much ready for anything.

Wherever there is Crime, wherever there is Disaster - the W.A.S.P.s Stand By For Action!

The Blackwood Industries Mark I Sentry Unit isn’t the only Robot in Town.

The NATO A.S.P. troopers also have Automaton Backup, based on earlier non Varian designed A.I. Technology - the M.A.T.A.T. (Mobile All Terrain Automated Trooper) Units can have a tendency to Malfunction when not maintained properly, shooting on friend and foe alike.

Still, their presence on any field of Battle far outweighs any concerns over safety - as they are only used away from the Civilian Population.
Armed with a Subsonic Cannon and a "Grabber" (a modified mechanical claw which grew out of the Cutter and Spreader devices used by Rescue .
Services) capable of exerting 95 tonnes of pressure. A M.A.T.A.T. can also be fitted with Twin-Linked heavy blaster rifles, a flame-thrower, or a water cannon depending on the nature of its required duties.

Hopefully this will be released at the same time as the A.S.P. Troopers/Caprican Legion.

I'd say they match up pretty well, Nexus might be a mm or so higher, particularly with Crooked's newer stuff.

An Interesting Development, which has grown out of talking with a customer and Linda - the Doom Squad Deal (A Mark I Sentry, two of Each Prime and a Prime Head Sprue) has proved to be of some interest and so, its going to be a permanent fixture of the Range (although, it will be updated later on to include the third Prime Miniature).

So this is (kinda sorta) a forerunner to the planned Starter Sets for the various SDZA Factions.

Many thanks to those who have ordered (and shown interest in) the NXDP01 - Doom Squad Deal so far.

I had bitten, and I had ordered a Sentry - and it arrived all the way here quite rapidly too!
It's a nice model, well in the goldilocks range of size: not too big to be unwieldy or to use terrain, and not too small as not to appear at all menacing. Nicely detailed, promises to be fun to paint - I am now worried this will distract me from the Lead Painters League!
The packaging was compact but very well armoured! And it included a small bag intriguingly marked 'freeby' too, with a small friend for the Sentry inside - yay!  :D

Brilliant service, looking forward to the cyborg  8) 8) 8)

Hi,
I placed a small order on Thursday for Porky and 60s Jacob Nexus and they arrived this morning.  The figures are great and I can't wait to paint them.  Porky in particular is a figure with lots of character and is perfect for my 7TV United Radionics cast.  Since the product and service from Nexus is so good I'll definitely be ordering more stuff even if it makes my wallet unhappy.
All the best,
George.

Hamilton 'Porky' Ironsides has at various times worked for NATO, the Brotherhood, and even as a mercenary for pay.

He was married to a Woman who manifest Prime Powers, who was killed during the Uni-Tech 'Freaks of Nature' purge that took place in Chicago during he fall of 1989. Porky and his wife Samantha had one daughter Sarah, who disappeared during the F.o.N.P.

During the First Carrion outbreaks Porky was was part of a highly secret branch of Covert Operations for NATO - and slowly fell into working with the Brotherhood, as he was sympathetic to their cause.

It was Doctor Makalay of the Brotherhood that sent Porky to the San Angeles Resistance front, with the intention of getting the S.A. group to join the Brotherhood and introduce them to all the stolen Uni-Tech and Blackwood Industries Technology available to the cause.  

Though initially distrustful of the Leader of the S.A. Rebels due to her possible connections to Uni-Tech, and with a healthy dislike of 'Do Gooder' (his nickname for Marcus Darr, who in Porky's opinion is too good a man to be real) Porky came to be a respected as a valued member of the S.A. Resistance.

Though no one could accuse Porky of having the proverbial 'heart of gold', he is not as ruthless or extreme as his brusque exterior seems.

So, whats going on at the Nexus Bunker - loads really, just nothing of real interest to people. The Rules are progressing nicely, in a bit of a "holding pattern" with regards to releases because of Salute taking up everyones time so much, but trust me - the next releases are stonkers (if a little late).

We're also working on the internal "look" of the Rulebook now - here's the design for the Profile Templates within the rulebook (the Character cards reflect this, and are even nicer looking).

We're getting ahead with certain things, on target with others, and behind with some (still) LoL.

Troopers/Caprican Legion (my own not cylons, they should have been out ages ago - sorry about that), the Morlocks (three different poses, two Armed - with options - one unarmed), another F.O.N. Prime ("not" X-Man, comes with a "Furious" head), another F.O.N. Prime Head Sprue (the Devil and the Gambler), the M.A.T.A.T. (the "not" Ed209), AND a Suprise Vehicle (to go with the "not" V Uni-Tech Troopers).

The Rules are being playtested as I type too - it's all very exciting.

Having seen these, I can vouch that this next release will not only fill in the range, but it's gonna make it virtually explode.  Some very exciting sculpts from several very talented sculptors.

Coming Soon "The Seraphis Institute" -

(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t31.0-8/10498008_1018346711532627_8455296663897807050_o.jpg)

The Seraphis Institute in one form or another has existed since the time of the Crusades, its mandate has always been one of investigation and exploration, and has always stood for knowledge and learning above all else - even during the 17th Century, when they found themselves at odds with the Catholic Church.

All Members of the Seraphis Institute are unique individuals, some call them Primes - others call them Freaks, the only fact people should know is that the Seraphis Institute has Powerful, Driven, Agents working for it.

The most important and well known personalities are as follows -

Charley 'Ruby' James has the powers of Energy Projection and Empathy, an elegant and demure English rose as dangerous as she is beautiful. Beautifully spoken, elegant to a fault – her balletic movements bely the fact she is a deadly hand to hand combatant.

Dr Klae Steele has Invisibility and Intense Cold powers. A strange man, older in his ways than his appearance gives away - there is something behind those cold blue eyes
that's disturbing. Whilst he is happy to rely on his abilities, he is also more than capable of using the special Side Arms most Seraphis Agents carry.

Sterling Mercury has Speed and Sense Manipulation (minor mind control, and illusion creation), he is quick witted and capable - people underestimate him because he is almost supernaturally charming and has a great sense of humour, that is generally a Mistake.

"P.B." has Prowess Augmentation (Strength and Damage Resistance on demand) and Psychomtery, a huge black man – massively strong with fists like coal shovels. Most find him intimidating - but he is the most gentle man you could wish to meet.

Then there is Major John Colt, a seemingly jovial ex-military type - but don't let his middle aged spread and jolly demeanour fool you, as an ex British Secret Service Agent there’s a lot more to Major Colt than meets the eye.

Last we have Agent Harry Solo - a retired United Nations Special Agent, tough as Nails and quite ruthless. Skilled in capturing (and terminating) Rogue Primes - in part thanks to the special Sidearm Seraphis Agents carry. To underestimate Solo is to take a gamble – and Harry Solo never loses at Cards.

They are all Members of the Seraphis Institute, a Group of British Scientific Trouble-shooters charged with investigating our changing world - and help protect it. Privately Funded, and answerable to no one but themselves - the world is lucky they hold themselves to the highest moral standards. All operatives are equipped with the latest advances in technology, freely provided by Varian (who has ties to the Institute) - including the most up to date equipment and weaponry.

Whilst the day to day running of the Institute is down to Major Colt - but Dr Steele, his adopted Daughter Jenna, and Harry Solo decide on the placements and make all the strategic decisions, whilst all planning and long term thinking is done by the Metatron - the Institutes A.I. Computer, created by Varian Blackwood and donated to the Institute.

The Seraphis Institute were Sculpted by Ian Mountain.

A bit of news, I've started an S.D.Z.A. (Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse) Blog called "Yesterday's Future Today!"

For some time folks have been nagging for me to put all the fiction and fluff in one place, so here it is - http://sdza-nexus-miniatures.blogspot.co.uk/ (http://sdza-nexus-miniatures.blogspot.co.uk/)

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-51uL43OGCK4/VUYLeAw-a5I/AAAAAAAAAFM/IkWA3MdVAVY/s1600/YESTERDAYS%2BFUTURE%2BTODAY%2521.png)

Also - NEW UNI-TECH TROOPER POSES! Once again Sculpted by Martin Buck, they will add variety to any Uni-Tech or 'Visiting' Army.

They will be available soon, and will be priced the same as the existing Uni-Tech Miniatures in the Range.

Either contact me through Here, via Facebook or direct at Nexus Miniatures ([email protected] or [email protected]) to place an order (give it a couple of weeks), and I am hoping to finally have the shopping cart working about the same time too.

Coming Soon - THE M.A.T.A.T.!

The Blackwood Industries Mark I Sentry Unit isn’t the only Robot in Town.

The NATO A.S.P. troopers also have Inorganic Backup, based on earlier non-Varian A.I. Technology - the M.A.T.A.T. (Mobile All Terrain Automated Trooper) Units can have a tendency to Malfunction when not maintained properly, shooting on friend and foe alike.

Still, their presence on any field of Battle far outweighs any concerns over safety - as they are only used away from the Civilian Population.

Armed with a Subsonic Cannon and a "Grabber" (a modified mechanical claw which grew out of the Cutter and Spreader devices used by Rescue Services) capable of exerting 95 tonnes of pressure. A M.A.T.A.T. can also be fitted with Twin-Linked heavy blaster rifles, a flame-thrower, or a water cannon depending on the nature of its duties.

Soon to be released (should have been earlier, DAMN YOU SALUTE!) 66mm Tall, cast in Resin 50mm Base. £12.99 Each. Sculpted by Carl Stoelzel​ - assisted by Dave Stone​. I'll be taking orders for it in about a week or so.

The First Picture is of an actual production Model, the second Picture is of the Pre-Production Model to give an idea of scale (Porky Ironsides Miniature not Included).

Ooooooh, some new 3D Prints came through today!

An Updated set of "RoboBorgs" (chunkier, easier to cast without losing details such as hands LoL).

Two Inorganic Servants "2X4B - 523P" and "Biddi" a diminutive personal Aid.

Lastly, we have a  B.O.C.S. Units (Basic Operational Computerised Soldier) an 8 foot tall mechanical Goliath created to stop people escaping "Omega Colony" (Run Runnah) - but more on that later!

Unfortunately, these super detailed prints are translucent - so theres not a lot to photograph LoL!

Will be sorting out about mastering them in Metal now - man, it never ends LoL.

Bit of a quiet Day today, a couple of Orders to send out - some writing to do, but little else.

So how about a Bit of Fun - IT'S COMPETITION TIME!

All you have to do is Write a Scenario Outline for S.D.Z.A. - the Deadline for this is my Birthday (the 23rd of May) as I like fun things to read on my Birthday.

The Winners will be judged by the S.D.Z.A. Playtesters Group (collectively known as Highwaymen)

Well, things are still quiet (no real world chaos for a change LoL) - we're updating a couple of production molds this week as well. Not only for quality reasons, but so all the Uni-Tech Miniatures (which btw are now completely sold out) are in the same mold for future production.

This means, the NEW Uni-Tech Trooper poses will be in the same Mold now, so they will be "bumped up" and released alongside the other releases I mentioned before (The A.S.P. Troopers/Caprican Legion, the Morlocks, F.O.N. Operative 3, F.O.N. Heads 2, and the M.A.T.A.T. Walker) - PLUS a Big Surprise :D

Exciting Stuff!!

Not too long now, Andy from Ainsty was expecting new Mold "blanks" today (that should have been delivered Tuesday) so fingers crossed for Sooner rather than Later.

WELL after a long chat with my Caster, things are going well - Morlocks looking good, new 'Furious' F.O.N. and extra heads looking good, new 'By Your Command" ASP Troopers/Caprican Legion looking (his words) GREAT - and the two new Uni-Tech Troopers are looking 'V'ery good as well (see what I did there LoL).

And the secret project is taking shape nicely too!

With Dave working hard on the M.A.T.A.T. casting - its full steam ahead for the next (in actuality two Months) releases!

WOOT!

Right, the first Master Castings are now "in the post" and should be with me shortly.

In around two weeks, the new releases will be out (two Months worth) -including (hopefully) the initial version of the Mystery release plus re-stocks of everything I've been short of.

In theory, after that - releases will be more regular :D

More great news, I have added this little beauty to the Nexus Stable - sculpted by Ian Morton, "Ronin-X" will be our first Rogue Prime (or Ronin as they are known in  S.D.Z.A.)

(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtp1/v/l/t1.0-9/11063647_791732870942285_2481816817079172646_n.jpg?oh=c57def2a44ee4525caa3a0ffcde7e691&oe=560B0714)

Ian is also starting work on the second Miniature for the Rogue Prime range, "Ronin-B".

This Month are two new Uni-Tech Trooper Poses, three Morlocks, three A.S.P. Troopers/Caprican Legion (by your command), a new "Furious" FON Operative, and two new FON Operative Heads - the Gambler and the Devil.

All 6 of the Institute, Varian Blackwood (and Cat), and Hopefully Ronin-X (if we can squeeze him in) will be the next lot of releases.

Uni-Tech - a Corporation for the Future, or so their P.R. Department would have us believe.

They want the world to forget their past mistakes, like the cloning of the first Dinosaurs and the eventual chaos that stemmed from that project - but the release of a mutagenic virus that created Mutants, Super Beings, and the Living Dead is a tough list to leave behind.

Still, they move forward - innovating, striving for Corporate Dominance. A tough deal when competing against Varian Blackwood who gives away everything, and Jorōgumo Industries who always seem to undercut their prices.

Famed for putting on a show, parades being a favourite - Uni-Tech recently brought in Dress Uniforms, sporting a bright and striking Orange and Grey colour scheme - they certainly do provide a dashing spectacle.

In the setting of S.D.Z.A. (Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse) Uni-Tech are the Corporation responsible for the Dino-Parks and the subsequent mess created - in game terms they can be played as either bad or good guys (depending on personal perspective and desire).

They have some of the best Weapons and Technology in the game, and so tend not to show up in vast numbers - but even so turn out in bigger forces than say Shanty Dwellers or Scraps.

Ruthless, Efficient, and Direct are words that best sum-up Uni-Tech and their style of Play.

Uni-Tech Miniatures Sculpted by Martin Buck, Uni-Tech Dress Uniform Painting by Clayton Conduff, and the Uni-Tech Propaganda Art by Carl Stoelzel.

COMING SOON FROM NEXUS MINIATURES!

The Cobra Low Altitude Skimmer!

Coming in at a nice chunky size of 105mm long, 95mm wide, and standing 65mm on its landing legs - the MK I Cobra L.A.S. (Low Altitude Skimmer) is THE light defense and transportation vehicle of choice.

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-M8cgE9St1nQ/VXGd-64AA4I/AAAAAAAAAUM/u2dyJpVhlQY/s640/01.jpg)

When Captain Sylvester 'Cobra' Cobretti (who also held a Doctorate in Physics and Bachelor's degrees in aerodynamics, flight mechanics, and aircraft design) retired from the U.S.A.F just before the Year of Chaos, he returned to his first love - Aircraft Design. Unfortunately, with High Altitude Air Travel now prohibited by disasters all over the world above the cloud line. All Air Travel, was reduced to sub-sonic low altitude flyers.

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7a6ZMRaVWb8/VXGd-zV-SEI/AAAAAAAAAUc/iNEk3oa8hyA/s640/02.jpg)

The MK I Cobra L.A.S. (Low Altitude Skimmer) was the breakthrough in low altitude flyers, it literally draws the energy needed to power it from the atmosphere in the form of Muons.

Earth is bombarded by particles of "Cosmic Energy" (for want of a better term) all the time, these high-energy particles arriving from outer space are mainly (89%) protons – nuclei of hydrogen, the lightest and most common element in the universe – but they also include nuclei of helium (10%) and heavier nuclei (1%), all the way up to uranium. When they arrive at Earth, they collide with the nuclei of atoms in the upper atmosphere, creating more particles, mainly Pions. The charged Pions can swiftly decay, emitting particles called muons. Unlike Pions, these do not interact strongly with matter, and can travel through the atmosphere to penetrate below ground. The rate of muons arriving at the surface of the Earth is such that about one per second passes through a volume the size of a person’s head.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-dhQwUhNILuQ/VXGd-d_sHZI/AAAAAAAAAUU/L-JvPgSKqdM/s640/03.jpg)

The Muon is an unstable subatomic particle, and as such it was felt had no practical use - as it had a fairly fast decay rate. By covering the Cobra with millions of tiny scale like receptors to catch the Muons as they hit the surface of the skimmer, Cobretti found a way of using the weak interaction created by the Muons decay rate to power an engine; and the I.P.S. (Ingrid Power System) was Born! (named after his Wife Ingrid Cobretti).

This was an astonishing, unbelievable breakthrough (one might say "out of this world") because an important advantage of Muon non-ionizing radiation is that it is safe for humans, plants, and animals - so it seemed like a dream come through.

There were drawbacks of course, the ship had to be very light - as Muons don't provide much power, and so even though they are equipped with weaponry (what weaponry depends upon who's using them) any direct impact, or blast tends to have a catastrophic effect. Cobras can be fitted to carry cargo (known as Pythons), but the heavier weight means much lower speeds.

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-wIE__PIp7Is/VXGd_jG3ilI/AAAAAAAAAUk/btEF9QGX0fY/s640/04.jpg)

MK I Cobra L.A.S. are seen in use all over the world, in particular by Uni-Tech and NATO.

OK - Now the Boring stuff.

The MK I Cobra L.A.S. is a pre-release prototype Kit, and will only be available in very limited quantities - Cast in two parts in resin, it is an expert level kit and will require some sanding and filling - as usual, please be careful when working with resin use a mask!. The MK I Cobra L.A.S. is supplied with its landing legs, cast in metal.

(Uni-Tech Officer Not Included, he's just there trying to hitch a ride.)

A while back you might remember that I announced a Competition.

All entrants had to do was to Write a Scenario Outline for S.D.Z.A. - the Deadline for was my Birthday (the 23rd of May) and the original intent was to have the Playtesters judge it, unfortunately - as usual with these things, they tend not to survive contact with reality and we ended up with several entries from Playtesters. So the Judging was done by myself, and Carl Stoelzel (BooBoo) who's been kind enough to help with the Graphics and Artwork for S.D.Z.A.

The standard was very VERY high, and the quality of work and imagination was inspiring.

Still, there were only three prize "levels.

1st Place will win a PAINTED pre-production "RoboBorg" Miniature (like the one in the picture) and its an original 3D Print (not a re-cast), AND AND a Set of the original 5 Releases as Resin Master Castings.

2nd Place will win a pre-production "RoboBorg" Miniature (like the one in the picture) and its an original 3D Print (not a re-cast), AND a Set of the original 5 Releases in Metal.

3rd Place will win a Set of the original 5 Releases in Metal.

So - now the interesting stuff - on to the winners.

Clayton Conduff won 1st Place, with his Scenario "Unstoppable Force" pitting the Initiative (F.O.N. Operatives) against Uni-Tech.

Karsten Zeidler (Von Lucky on the Lead Adventure Forums) won 2nd Place, with his Scenario "Rat-a-tat-tat" which is the saga of a rogue M.A.T.A.T. Unit.

Simon Quinton won 3rd Place, with his Scenario "Mission Log file. 007892" which had Jacob Nexus investigating deliberate dinosaur and human DNA splicing.

Will the Winners please contact me with their Address Details, and I'll sort you out with your Prizes.

THE NEW RELEASES AND RE-STOCKS HAVE ARRIVED AT THE NEXUS BUNKER!

The Official Release Date for the new Miniatures was supposed to be Friday the 12th of June, but as a little thank you for everyone’s support and Interest - anyone placing a ‘pre-order’ before Midnight on Thursday the 11th of June will get a further 10% off the below prices (including deals) – note, this is for email based orders ONLY (though I doubt the Cart will be ready before the 12th).

As an EXTRA SPECIAL SURPRISE – I have VERY Limited Stocks (just seven) of the Cobra Skimmer, the Cobra Skimmer will be a Limited Edition run of just 25 Models (the life of the Mold) – due to expense of production, and the limited mold life – it’s just the way it is (for now) but don’t worry we are looking at ways of adding the Cobra Skimmer to the Nexus Catalogue as a permanent sales item. That first 25 are all I’ll have for a while – and when they’re gone, they’re gone (and two are already spoken for).

A quick note about Resin Models - All Nexus Miniatures Resin Models are Expert Level Kits. They may require sanding and filing, and need to be assembled with Super Glue. Please Take Care when working with Resin - if you are unsure and need help, please feel free to contact me at either of my Emails.

To place an order either contact me through here or Email at Nexus Miniatures ([email protected] or [email protected]) to place an order.

Post by: Van-Helsing on June 12, 2015, 09:18:00 PM
"Of Truebreeds & Torem" . . . . . .

The Dinosaurs have not been getting the love they deserve, as a small company - producing full size Dino's is a little beyond my costs atm - especially as there are SO MANY great Dino Toys out there in Retail-Land.

But, how about the Truebreed Dino-Men?

After a number of years the Mutts became more and more scarce - the Blackwood Research Institute came to the conclusion that it was most likely for one of three reasons. Either the R.D.S. (Reactive De-evolution Syndrome) Virus was becoming less effective (unlikely, as there were still Carrion outbreaks from time to time) or people were becoming immune (also unlikely, as new Primes are being awakened every day), or possibly somehow these Mutations had become more stable - and there was something out in the Barrens we hadn't seen yet.

As it turned out, the Third Reason was indeed the reason - there were fewer Mutts because the R.D.S. Virus had 'evolved' a new way to restructure and combine Animal/Human D.N.A. - creating a set of new and stable species - the Truebreeds.

The Truebreeds are quite literally Humanoid Dinosaurs - admittedly not very smart Humanoids, about the theorized intelligence level of a Neanderthal. But their low grade Intelligence doesn't stop Carnivore Truebreeds being a threat in the parts of the world where they have become common - South America, just outside San Angeles City State, and outside the Walls of Scotland and Wales.  Herbivore Truebreeds are far less common, whether this is because they keep themselves to themselves or they have a secret agenda (the Herbivores tend to be smarter than their Carnivore cousins) is not known.

Carnivore Truebreeds prefer to stay pure - and each Tribe is generally made up of the same strain -  showing strong racial influences in their build and appearance directly from their Ancestry - Raptors and Allosaurus being the most common Carnivores. There are exceptions to this rule however, if the Tribe has a particularly strong and controlling Chief.

Carnivore Truebreed Tribes exist by hunting and raiding - and although they prefer to attack vulnerable Human settlements out in the Barrens, Giaour Hives and Scraps clans are targeted too.

Herbivore Truebreeds, whilst also Tribal in Nature, also spend a lot of their time with wild Herbivores - and have been seen on occasion helping their less evolved cousins when injured or struggling to find water. The most Common Herbivore Truebreeds seem to be Triceratops and Ankylosaurus.

Then there are the Torem . . . . . . .

The Torem are Truebreed Primes, though rare they are powerful and deadly - when they are part of a Tribe, they ALWAYS lead it. Such is their strength and power (and intelligence) they often mix the Truebreed species, to created the strongest and most efficient fighting force possible. Filled with the ferocious grace of their 'parent' Dinosaur. More often than not Torem are evolved from Carnivores, with T-Rex and Allosaurus Torem being the most frequently encountered.

The Prophet of the Deadworld

It was dark, very dark - Captain Pugh lay there in the bushes next to the water waiting.

His A.S.P. Team had walked into an ambush - this Zone was supposed to be clear of Carrion, there hadn't been an outbreak in the Catskills in Months.

Captain Pugh let out an involuntary "aaargh" turning his head to see an Acanthostega parked on his leg, he stared at it and it stared back - cocked its head as if it was waiting for him to make another sound, then darted off into the water. "F**king newts, the Catskills are full of them", Captain Pugh 'laughed' in his head as he thought this.

His attention returned to the Shack and the ambush - they had received orders to attend this location that a group of Paleozoologists were in trouble. The landed their Cobra in a clearing, 100 meters away (standard procedure in such cases) and circled the shack - only to find over a hundred (at a guess) Carrion waiting for their Team of 6 A.S.P. Troopers. That’s unheard of in such rocky terrain, Carrion are generally found in urban environments or the open road.

Sgt Ewing "pssst" at Captain Pugh to attract his attention from a clump of bushes about 5 meters away - at least he was alive. But why was his face lit up with a sickly green light - almost in unison Pugh  and Ewing turned their heads to look towards the source of the illumination - just as it started to crackle and spit, making sounds like bacon on a griddle.

There was a ball of green light, crackling with veins of energy - it grew to be about 8 foot across. Both Pugh and Ewing noticed that the ground beneath the ball was scorched - half burnt plants, and the remains of an Acanthostega lay at the 'foot' of the crackling energy sphere.

The centre of the green energy ball folded back, almost like an iris on a camera lens - revealing blackness . . . .

All was still and silent, for about thirty seconds - then Pugh heard those sounds. The Moans and Groans of the damned, a Carrion horde. Dozens of Carrion poured through the blackness at the centre of the glowing green sphere - like so many man shaped dead and diseased cockroaches. Clambering, scratching, clawing, falling and tumbling over one another to break through.

But from where?

Fearing they would find Ewing and himself, Pugh checked his weapons and ammo - expecting the worst, he looked up to see that Sgt Ewing was doing the same. But after the Carrion had finished pouring through - they stopped. Almost as if controlled, as if they were waiting for . . someone . .

Mere seconds after a scantily clad carrion slinked through what was now obviously a portal of some kind. She stood there, her body was still perfect Pugh thought to himself. She turned, looking directly at where he was hiding - her now hideous face, a mere echo of what she must have looked like when she was 'alive'. She glared, her eyes showed a spark of intelligence missing from most Carrion - she sniffed the air, then turned her attention back to the glowing portal.

A tall robed man stepped through the portal, dressed in dark blue - almost black robes. Decorated with stars and constellations - almost like it was a photo realistic map of the night sky - but Pugh didn't recognize any of the shapes of the stars or constellations.

He was bald, his face was drawn and ashen - and he carried with him a great bronze staff, the top of which looked like a stylized 'key' to . . Some great gothic lock . .

He looked at the female Carrion, and in a scratchy yet powerful voice said "Is everything ready my dear".  

She looked up at him, "Yes my Lord" - her voice was little more than a harsh whisper, she bowed her head "the other portals from Deadworld will open across the world at 24 hour intervals as commanded".

"Excellent", the robed man gave out a hideous malformed laugh. "This world too shall know the word of the Prophet".


(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-kzWa4sendV0/VYHxU9EyFtI/AAAAAAAAAcg/eZUWOcTw8j0/s640/1%2B-%2BCopy.jpg)

The The Prophet of the Deadworld is a Prime from another Dimension, on his home world, the Prophet and three other members of the "Dark Initiative" were the ones who DELIBERATELY created the RDS virus, and turned their world into the first Deadworld.

So far, only the Prophet has passed through - and he can draw the occasional sploog of Carrion through as well, even remotely at a distance.

A totally unique Model to the S.D.Z.A. setting, the Prophet of the Deadworld has been sculpted by the remarkably talented Mark Evans - and will be made available as part of a future Nexus Miniatures release.

Drew's Big Box Of Bargains' is here! - I have a batch of F.O.N. Troopers where the Head and Weapon sprue are miscast.

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-UftfAQ3jZzM/VYL3YmmPjrI/AAAAAAAAAc8/7_6HX6YZxrU/s640/NX04a.jpg)

The Helmet, Rifle, and Glow-Rod are slightly out of step (the mold slipped - see the picture) - they just need a little more work and TLC than usual (or just use different heads and weapons LoL)

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ugOSpNc6HP8/VYL3a0jwozI/AAAAAAAAAdE/b4GiXjhdk70/s400/Sprue%2BSide.jpg)

As the Sprue and the Body are in the same mold - when I cast more, I have the bodies to match (which are perfect btw)

SO, rather than just have them sit here in the Nexus Bunker doing nothing - I'm offering them for sale at a discounted price (worth it just for the bodies to be frank).

£1 each for a Sprue and a Body - they are all the "angry" head I am afraid, so no asking for swap outs - they are all in a big bag together, so don't ask how many there are. There are quite a few, but its first come first served.

When They are Gone they are Gone!

£1.00 each postage as standard (no matter how many you buy) and if you place a regular order as well - I'll treat you to a freebie ;)

UK - £1.80
E.U. - £3.80
Rest of the World - £6.50

Post by: Van-Helsing on June 23, 2015, 01:08:08 PM
When Uni-Tech were first trying to clone Dinosaurs, to get it to work they had to 'piggy back' the Dino DNA onto the genetic template of a theoretically harmless Virus - we all have them, here in the real world they've know about them for years, commonly known as bacteriophage or just 'phage' it is a virus that infects and replicates within a bacterium  - a phage was used as a carrier, as a Virus can replicate more efficiently than any Animal cell currently known to man. A phage may be encoded  to carry over a 100,000 - many more than the 24,000 needed.

When the technology became viable, it evolved into a money making venture for unscrupulous businessmen who were running Uni-Tech – exploiting it without it being fully tested.

Of course, when the Dino-Parks start opening all over the USA - and the Dino's then start breeding themselves (chaos theory reigns and Nature always finds a way) the Virus mutates and a new strain evolves, creating a "wild card" effect - causing it to spread to other animals – including Humans!

This new Infectious Virus started spreading Dinosaur characteristics to Humans - 90% of those infected become seriously ill. Only around 10% of those infected became 'Primes' - humans who began developing special traits. Enhanced Strength, toughened skin, lighter bones, wings, and other more 'exotic' and unexpected abilities. Most Primes are positive (designated Alphas, Betas, and Deltas to designate their level of ability), and show no (or very little) outward manifestation of their mutations - others, are more monstrous (and in the case of Omegas, generally hideous and deformed).

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-hP7KffMD5Kk/VYlLG9eCxRI/AAAAAAAAAds/tbfGgIXRKU4/s640/whats_in_the_box_stoelzel_vers.png)
After a time The Primes in countries all over the world attempted a takeover, which naturally lead to a cold war situation between the various Prime 'Nations' and the Norms - which led to the use of nuclear strikes, conventional, and chemical warfare. All the time Uni-Tech Scientists are trying to find a cure, but when they start getting close - the R.D.S. Virus mutates again into a new strain (due to a combination of Uni-Tech's tampering, Chemical contamination, Radiation, and natural viral evolution/contagion development), which in turn led to a new and uncontrollable Necrotizing Fasciitis infection (therein lies the problem - when ANY "strange" Virus encounters a new species it mutates again –  in this case killing people and then altering the DNA Code, changing their cellular structure - the result. CARRION!). Rather than the flesh simply being eaten away - it rots on the bone, remaining as leathery dessicated flesh hanging gorily off the bone leaving the Carriers craving healthy tissue – the very thing they have lost. This leads them to attack and bite, further spreading the disease.

There are two types of Carrion, Whispers and Dums.

The "Z-Cells" take over the body, forcing it into its new state - its alive, but not in the generally accepted way. The level of decay in the host would depend upon the degree to which the Z-Cells has taken over the host. Someone with nearly 100% conversion would look fresher for longer - as Z-Cells don't decay as such, they more "dry out" and become dessicated like tissue thats been mummified. The more mindless Dum's had received enough Z-Conversion to turn, but not enough to stop them breaking up from decay

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-X4ObI_o38DI/VYlJ8Lmv-aI/AAAAAAAAAdg/s8TZ5XIUTME/s400/RDS.png)
If enough cells Get Corrupted barring damage a Carrion could live forever - generally these "full conversions" aren't victims of bites they are 100% conversion by the source. Either direct exposure to the R.D.S. Virus itself, or they were carriers of the Virus, who passed away (either from natural causes, radiation poisoning, or chemical poisoning) leaving the R.D.S. Virus to run rampant throughout their system.

The true nature of the 'Whispers' (Smart Carrion) is that they have achieved 100% conversion, and as a consequence their intellect remains intact

Whispers are generally fresh fresh looking - with maybe some facial deformities created not only the R.D.S. Virus but also the change in personality and mindset, they normally look like they are less than a few days or weeks 'dead' - are faster than regular Carrion and can think independently of the herd, even using tools and simple weapons. A few rare examples keep their original intelligence and personality - it has been theorized that maybe the prime aspects of their genetic makeup had been activated as they died, but in 99% of these cases the individual gets so depressed and hateful of their situation and what they have become they seek to end their existence.

Dums are rarely fresh (in look or smell), they are slow, scratch and bite - but show little (or no) actual intelligence.

They are often "herded" by the Whispers or the cannibalistic Giaour.

Whispers can still communicate, but in gravelly whispered tones - Dum's cannot speak, merely grunting and groaning.

The history of the Organization that became known as the D-Rangers (or Dinosaur-Rangers to give them their full title) began pretty much before that day in 1983 when the Dino-S**t first hit the fan.

Originally the "Rangers" (as they were dubbed back in the old days) were the Staff at the first Dino-Parks - and their membership comprised of the regular Staff, Veterinarians, Paleontologists, Experienced Zoo Keepers, and Animal Behaviour experts hired to work at and maintain the Dino-Parks - when the chaos erupted and the Dinosaurs started roaming wild and free - their job changed, Rangers helped monitor, control, and even capture escaped and wild Dinosaurs in an attempt to control the situation - though their modern Duties and Responsibilities are greater today - as the D-Rangers often Deal with Carrion Outbreaks and Rogue Mutts as well.

No matter where Rangers patrol, what part of the world - or what mounts the ride. They all wear the same emblem, and have the same Motto - Humanitas Colimus (Humanity We Serve). So, whether you live in luxury inside a Cities Walls, or live the Humble life of a Shanty Dweller - remember the Brave men and women of the Rangers who help keep you safe.

Right, good news and bad news - I was (as it turns out) optimistic about the new Website Launch being the 15th. After working my ass off, we're still encountering all sorts of issues - so much so I've got the pro's in the Help (the "I-Team" LMAO).

Linda has thus insisted the Anniversary Promotion should continue in the mean time - so all "manual" orders placed until the Webstore is up and kicking will still be subject to the following benefits.

So - the 15% off £15+ orders promotion will continue - but be quick, the webstore could be sorted any day (yea right LoL)

Any orders placed by Email before the new Webstore is up and Running for orders of £15 or more before discount (lets face it, thats really REALLY easy to do) will get a 15% discount off their order! (Offer applies to miniatures in the current catalogue, and cannot be used with pre-orders for unlisted miniatures or in conjunction with any other Nexus Miniatures Promotion)

The Caprican Legion pictured here, are Caprican Drone Troopers - it wasn't long before Major Caprican realized that his men were dying out, the original Legion were 100 strong but it wasn't long before he had lost a quarter of his Troopers - working as Mercenaries and Standing Military for the Brotherhood soon took its toll.

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2L3e0nNUiN8/VavIrutzaJI/AAAAAAAAAgQ/FOHExje1pGU/s640/Caprican%2BLegion.jpg)

Combining a simple sentry AI with the Cybernetic systems already utilized to keep his own men functioning in their "unliving" state was no real issue for Capricans genius Mind - held together by a cheaper polished steel version of their standard A.S.P. Armour and Caprican Helmet - the Drone Troopers were a force to be reckoned with, especially when led by a Gold Clad Drone Commander. Marching mercilessly ever forward, following orders without question "By Your Command" . . . . . .

The Nexus Miniatures are currently available to order, at £3.25 Each - £9.00 for one of each of three different designs, and an Army Builder 'By Your Command' deal of Six Caprican Legionnaire for just £16.00 (and everything is 15% off at the moment, with an Entry into a Prize Draw).

Primes (what we call "super-beings" in the S.D.Z.A. Universe) can be collected (and eventually played in games of S.D.Z.A.) in a few different ways.

Our beloved Super Beings are technically split into three Factions, you have the Sanctioned Primes of the Initiative - these are your "Freaks Of Nature" Operatives (as the general public so cruelly calls them), they can be included in with any "Good" Army, so Military, Government types, and Human "Survivors" may take them as part of their Force - but of course you can also take them as a full Initiative Force - backed up by Initiative Troopers and a Sentry Unit.

They can also be painted in less uniform Colours as Rogue Primes for a Brotherhood Collection/Force too - happily backing up the manipulative Dr Makalay and his companion the female Prime Assassin Pisacha.

All currently available from Nexus Miniatures, and still with a 15% discount as part of the current "pre-webstore" promotion for Manual Orders.

AUGUST UPDATE!

Still awaiting the re-stocks of the remaining Limited Edition run of the Cobra Skimmers - hopefully they will be available around the time the Webstore is up and finished.

Manual Orders are still being done Currently (and still at 15% off and with a chance of winning one of the Limited Edition Cobra Skimmers) so if you need to bulk up your collection (hopefully ready for the free S.D.Z.A. Rules release) don't leave it too long - as we're getting close with the new Webstore now.

A quick "heads up" too, Shipping will be going up a little - lately the larger orders have mean either the shipping costing (a lot) more than my Rates, or me having to send them insured - rather than charge by order size (which is actually a rip off anyway) when the Webstore (FINALLY) opens these new shipping rates will apply (which are still really competitive though)

UK - £2.00
E.U. - £4.25

Post by: Van-Helsing on August 08, 2015, 05:55:04 PM
OK, I'm going to start a regular series of Articles today called "The Grand Illusion" - just to give people an idea of where I am going with the Rules.

Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse ISN'T just another Skirmish Wargame, its a little more than that.

Its a hybrid.

What do I mean - well we've had a trend recently for hybrid Boardgame/Wargame style rule-sets, I wanted something different - something that played reasonably fast, but had a little more flavour to it (as my play-testers will tell you).

S.D.Z.A. is a hybrid role-playing game/miniatures game (in fact in the full rules there will be a skill/experience system for you to play it as a full RPG - as well as a 'fast play' mass battle section).

Like any RPG/Wargame, the first port of call is Attributes or Statistics. I opted for Statistics (shortened to Stats)

STATS
The Stats (Statistics) of a Miniature determine its usefulness in games of S.D.Z.A, and represent a Miniatures general strengths and weaknesses. In addition to these Stats, each Miniature has Traits either specific to it or to its Species (for example Human, Zombie, Dinosaur, Dino-Mutant etc.) - and possibly additional traits purchased during profile creation or earned during campaign play.   

A Miniature's Stats generally range from 2-12 – your Average Regular Human will have Stats in the 3-4 range, a Tough Human 6 or even higher – your bigger Dinosaurs, such as Spinosaurus or Diplodocus will have Stats as high as 16. The higher the Stat, the more powerful/strong that particular Stat is with regards to that Miniature.

There are four Stats Vigour (Vg), Physique (Pq), Alacrity (Ay), and Backbone (Bk) – these are broad categories that represent health, toughness, and the mental fortitude of a Miniature.

Today I am focusing on Vg (Vigour) as it has the most impact on the game.

Vigour (Vg)
Vigour not only determines what a Miniature can do during a turn, as it is also a Miniatures Action Points – these points are spent whenever a Miniature is Activated to perform Actions. They are also the number of points of damage a Miniature can take before dying - so as a Miniature becomes Injured it’s Vigour score goes down, so it also becomes less capable of performing Tasks during a game.

During one of the early Test games, one of the people 'experimented' on (a Games Workshop staff member) was utterly confused by the S.D.Z.A. Actions/Damage system because it was too simple, and yet it worked. Theres no need for a table of modifiers for injuries because it is built into the rules.

The only thing to remember is certain Models (Heroes - those with the 'Heroic' trait, thick-skinned larger Dinosaurs, and Inorganics - Robots and other Machines) are ALWAYS counted as having their Maximum Vigour at the start of their Activation, even if they had been injured.

To clarify, an example -

(http://Sgt Brummie has been bitten by a Velociraptor, and taken 3 points of Damage to his Vigour Stat (which has a starting value of 10) when he next activates, as he has taken 3 points of Damage – he only has 7 Vg Points to spend on Actions.

If Sgt Brummie had the Heroic Trait, even though he had taken 3 points of Damage from a Dino-Bite – he would be able to use his Maximum of 10 Vg Points to spend on actions, only referring to his reduced Vigour Score for determining how much more damage he could take.)

As I mentioned before, some people found this abstract damage system confusing - even though its straightforward during play. So I came up with an example injury chart - to put what being damaged means in games of S.D.Z.A. (there is naturally some confusion among gamers who are used to “bang your dead” rules systems or modifiers for being injured).

So here are some examples as to what the Vigour Points Injury System means in physical terms -

Full (100%) Original Vigour Score = Uninjured and Ready to go.

3/4 (75%) Original Vigour Score = "Tis’ But A Scratch” - Hurt in such a way that they are hampered in some way, but not so much as they are incapable of any action.

1/2 (50%) Original Vigour Score = “School of Hard Knocks” - Injured in such a way its making it hard to do multiple things in a turn. Generally they can move, or shoot, or fight – they don’t have enough Vigour Points left to do it all.

1/4 (25%) Original Vigour Score = “The End is Nigh” - The Model is seriously injured, they need medical attention to do anything more than just crawl or maybe fire a weapon in a last desperate attempt at survival.

Zero (0%) Original Vigour Score = “Knockin’ on Heavens Door” - The Model is out of the game. It is, for all intents and purposes ‘Dead’ and should be removed from play (and replaced with a Corpse Marker etc for dramatic effect if you so wish). Bigger models like Dinosaurs, Sentry’s, M.A.T.A.T.s, or Prometheans should either be lain down or have a Special Template placed to mark where they fell, as they count as Terrain Now for movement and shooting.

And don’t forget, certain Traits allow for a model to always be played as being at their Maximum Vigour Score – this doesn’t mean they aren’t hurt, it just means they are Tough (or Heroic) enough to ignore it.

Next Up on The Grand Illusion - Actions and Activation's.

The Grand Illusion – Episode II

Yesterday I discussed how Vigour is used for both 'hit points' (for want of a better term) and action  points, and also covered how damage affects a models ability to perform actions as they get damaged - and therefore have fewer points to spend on actions as they get weaker (except for a few exceptions like Heroes and thick-skinned Dinosaurs).

Today we will take a look at Actions and Activations.

ACTIVATIONS

S.D.Z.A. is a game of alternating activation - at the start of each turn, both players roll for First Position, this is a 1D6 roll vs your Opponents 1D6 Roll - the winner (known as the First Position in the rules) activates a Miniature first; moving, shooting, attacking etc. – when the First Position has finished the turn is passed over, and the Second Position Player then activates a Miniature; moving, shooting, attacking etc. – and the turn passes back to the First Position Player.

This process is repeated again and again, passing the turn back and forth – activating and reacting till all Miniatures and Units on both sides have spent their Vg points and neither Player can make any further moves/actions.

When this happens, a new Turn Begins – and both players once again roll for First Position.

This is repeated for the requisite number of Turns (a standard non-scenario game is 1D3+5 Turns) when that turn limit is reached – the game ends, and O.P’s (Obliteration Points in non-scenario games and Objective Points in scenario based games) are calculated to determine the winner.

If one player finishes his allowable activations whilst the other still has miniatures left unactivated - the player with activations left has a choice to make.

He can either take advantage now, activating all his miniatures one at a time till all his miniatures have seen action in some way for that turn. OR he may choose ONE of the Miniatures left to be activated and may start that Miniature in "Overwatch" at the start of his next turn - the Miniature declared in Overwatch must be clearly marked with an Overwatch counter, BEFORE First position is rolled for.

This CAN be forced by 'Passing Over' a miniature and declining to activate it, but (of course) you then run the risk of that Model being seriously injured (or even killed) before the next turn has even begun!

Overwatch has already been alluded too in the previous section (and will be covered in a little more detail below) - but what about other actions?

Other than using active Traits (there are two types of Trait - Active Traits which you have to 'use' during play, either by spending Vg points or making a roll - sometimes both. Passive Traits, that have no cost and are always 'on) - there are plenty of options for your Miniatures when activated.

Before we go into Actions properly, we need to look at Rolling Dice in S.D.Z.A.

S.D.Z.A. uses a full range of dice - D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, & D20 - D100 (or percentile dice) are rarely used - only for random events and campaign use, so I'm going to ignore them for now.

Weapons are broken down into Damage Grades, and each Grade increases the Damage step. A Weapons Grade is also the number of Vg points it costs to use that Weapon as part of a Miniatures Activation.

•   Grade 0 – D3 Damage
•   Grade 1 - D4 Damage
•   Grade 2 - D6 Damage
•   Grade 3 - D8 Damage
•   Grade 4 - D10 Damage
•   Grade 5 - D12 Damage
•   Grade 6 - D20 Damage


Grade 6 / D20 Damage is as high as you can go, but Damage in close combat is also Modified for High Physique vs Low Physique (which I will go into more detail for the next Grand Illusion).

When dodging, using Stats or Traits - making ALL kinds of tests, or rolling to hit with any type of Weapon – 2D6 is used, with target numbers being generated by a resistance table.

When rolling to hit with a Firearm – a roll of 2 or 12 might mean the Weapon is out of Ammunition, or Jammed in some way – and needs to be reloaded or cleared (see Clear Jam or Reload later on).

If a 2 or 12 is rolled – roll a further D6, if the D6 roll is equal or lower than the Weapon Grade – it has indeed either run out of ammunition or suffered a malfunction in some way and it needs to be dealt with.

OK, now we have those basics explained - onto Actions.

ACTIONS

When a Miniature is activated, it may move, make attacks (via weapons or traits) or can be placed in Overwatch.

An Individual or Unit may perform its actions in any order providing they have enough Vg points to spend –

Move – Fire a Weapon – Then Move Again

Fire a Weapon – Then Move – Then Fire Again

Fire a Weapon – Then Move into Base to Base – Initiate Close Combat

Each action must be resolved fully before the Miniature spends any remaining Vg Points on further actions. Miniatures are ONLY limited in what it can or cannot do by the number of Vg Points it has to expend at any point during the game – this is an important concept don’t forget, as Vigour is also the measure of a Miniatures ability to take Damage.

Other Actions

Blocking or Parrying
Any miniature armed with a Sword, Staff, or a Rifle – may attempt to block or parry an armed close combat attack – IF they have Vg Points left to spend. They may do this as many times as they wish, but it costs 1 Point each time they attempt it – even if they fail.

Dinosaur’s may not Parry or Block, and non-dinosaurs may not Parry or Block the Attacks of Dinosaurs that are more than twice their height on the table – due to the size and weight of such an attack.

Leave/Withdraw from Close Combat   
If you are still standing, and have Vg Points left to spend – you may attempt to Leave/Withdraw from Close Combat.

This may be attempted even with Miniatures bigger than you, but then there is a cost in Vg to do so (its free vs Miniatures of the same size or smaller).

Take an Aimed Shot
You may only take an Aimed shot during regular activation, not during Overwatch and it costs extra Vg to do so.

Overwatch
Declaring Overwatch has to be a miniatures first action, it cannot move – and then declare it afterwards – Overwatch must be its first action. Only one miniature can be declared as being on Overwatch each side per turn.

Once Overwatch is declared, the miniature is marked with an Overwatch Token – and any further actions are suspended until it activates. This activation can take place at any time – even interrupting another miniatures activation, providing that miniature is ACTVATED within 8” and can be seen by the miniature that was placed in Overwatch

If a miniatures Actions take it within 8” of a miniature placed in Overwatch, and can be seen - the Miniature in Overwatch still activates, but the Miniature who’s Actions 'triggered' the Overwatch response gets to finish its activation uninterrupted.

Overwatch is declared, and the Activated Miniature spends Vigour Points and performs Actions as Normal - but please note, a miniature performing it’s Actions as part of an Overwatch Activation CAN NOT be interrupted by an enemy miniature that’s also been placed on Overwatch (phew).

Clear Jam or Reload   
When rolling to hit with a Firearm – a roll of 2 or 12 might mean the Weapon is out of Ammunition, or Jammed in some way – and needs to be reloaded or cleared (see Clear Jam or Reload later on).

If a 2 or 12 is rolled – roll a further D6, if the D6 roll is equal or lower than the Weapon Grade – it has indeed either run out of ammunition or suffered a malfunction in some way and it needs to be dealt with.

Lifting or Throwing Objects
When lifting or throwing, use the resistance table (which will be covered in the next Grand Illusion)
– you may only attempt to do this once per activation, if you fail you fail - but may try again later.

Passing Over
You may choose Passing Over as a Miniatures activation, it must be its first action, it cannot move – and then declare it afterwards – Passing Over must be its first action. Only one miniature can be declared as being Passing Over each side per turn.

Morale Tests
In S.D.Z.A. Basic, Factions fight till a scenario ends – even when run down to the last man. HOWEVER there are certain Morale Tests that need to be made generally vs. Carrion Fear and Dino-Terror.

Knocked Down/Lying Down/Toppled
There are situations that result in Miniatures being placed on their side (for whatever reason -Knocked Down, Lying Down because of Regeneration, or Toppled by a Sonic Weapon) must then stand up.

Miniatures that are Uninjured, Heroic, or Inorganic may stand up for free.

Models that are injured must take a test of Physique vs a Difficulty of 8, if they pass they may stand up for free. If they fail, it costs 1 Vg point to stand up.

OK, that’s MORE than enough information for today I think - I know it seems a lot, but it plays really quickly honest LoL!

In the Next "The Grand Illusion" - Vg (Vigour Costs), Movement and Base Size, and the RRT (Retro Resistance Table)

The Grand Illusion - Episode III

Movement is factored by base size - I know that seems weird, but it’s that way for a reason. People like to base miniatures in different ways. My style is different to my friend Simon Quinton, who bases differently to my other mate Tony Yates.

Even though basing and movement are tied in together, it’s done in such a way that basing is a "range" of sizes - so actual basing has no real effect on the rules or game play – although it is recommended that all the players in a group base their S.D.Z.A. miniatures in the same way, as it can affect line of sight and cover. So it’s better if everyone is on the same footing.

By Base Size – up to 30mm Base – 2” Basic Move Small and Medium Miniatures – Human Sized or Smaller (Men, Raptors, Morlocks, Carrion and the like), smaller Dinosaurs such as Velociraptors.

By Base Size – up to 40mm Base – 3” Basic Move Medium Large sized Miniatures – Ogre Sized Mutants, Tigers and other Big Cats, Ranger Bikes, Utah-Raptors and other Deinonychus sized Dinosaurs.       

By Base Size – up to 50mm Base – 4” Basic Move Large Sized Miniatures – Mechs and Walkers, Dinosaurs such as the Parasaurolophus and the Ceratosaurus.
               
By Base Size – up to 60mm Base – 5” Basic Move Bigger Sized animals such as - Adolescent Dinosaurs, and Larger Carnivores such as the Allosaurus.

By Base Size – up to 80mm Base – 6” Basic Move The bigger Carnivores and Herbivores - Tyranosaurs, Tricerotops, Styracosaurus etc., Smaller Vehicles (Land Rovers etc.)

By Base Size – anything bigger than an 80mm Base – 8” Basic Move Everything Else - Spinosaurus, Brontosaurus, etc - When a Model or Miniature is too big to be based - its base size is considered to be the LONGEST EDGE in MM.


Vigour - how much do things cost

It "depends" is the actual answer, but lets look at some individual Vg point costs.

The cost of any given action, is on the S.D.Z.A. Actions Table – note, as specified in Episode I of the Grand Illusion these actions may be performed in any order – however an exception to this is when a Miniature is locked in close combat it may NOT fire a weapon.

Movement Actions generally cost 1 Vg point to move your "basic move", meaning faster/larger creatures cover ground really fast (watch out for Raptors and Primes with the Speed Power Trait).

Attacking in Close Combat with a Weapon is dependent on Base Size - to the Base Size Cost, the Weapon Grade is generally added to the Vg Point cost to attack.

Attacking in Close Combat 'unarmed' has a higher base cost, generally 1 point more than the Base Cost when using a Weapon - but the Grade of the Attack is not "added in" so it is cheaper.

The way the system works is that bigger creatures generally have fewer attacks but do a lot more damage per attack - representing the fact they are generally slower, but more powerful.

Shooting weapons Vg Points cost is factored in, so you only ever pay the "Grade" of the attack.

Active Traits - such as Prime (Super) Powers have specific Vg Point costs attached to them.

The R.R.T. (Retro Resistance Table)

Old School RPG'ers and Wargamers will find this familiar - a good old fashioned resistance table. As I mentioned in Episode I - all Tasks are resolved with a 2D6 Roll.

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-7wLFFdLZtrA/VcivX44MmsI/AAAAAAAAAjY/ClW0Hh53W3c/s640/RRT.jpg)

Completing an Action is referred to as a "test" - tests are initiated by a player when activating one of their Miniatures, in which case they pay the Vg Points cost to attempt the action - these points are expended whether the action is successful or not.

Once the controlling player has declared the action and spent the Vg points - look up the two opposing Numbers on the resistance table (see below) – and the number that tells you what the controlling player needs to roll (equal to or more) on 2D6 in order to successfully complete the action.  If you roll lower than the Target Number - the Action Fails, and even in the Event of a Failed Action - the Vg Points are still spent.

Combat & the R.R.T.

When making a Close Combat Attack - Cross reference the attackers & defenders Alacrity on the Resistance Table. If the defender is prone, the attackers Alacrity is considered 2 points higher.

Roll 2D6 vs. the number generated by the Resistance Table.

Simples really.

Ranged combat follows a similar pattern - Choose your Attack type, and spend your Vigour Points to attempt an attack.

Cross reference the attackers & defenders Alacrity on the Resistance Table. If you are within 12” and shooting at a prone miniature, your Alacrity is considered 2 points higher. If you are over 12” and shooting at a prone miniature, the miniature is considered to be in cover.

Roll 2D6 vs. the number generated by the Resistance Table.

If some of the Miniatures body being fired upon is behind cover (arms, legs, and heads don’t count) and it is mounted on a Base sized 40mm or smaller, then it is considered to be in cover there’s a +2 Penalty to the Target Number.

It's also important to note that Large Miniatures – those based on 50mm or larger bases may never claim cover - they are too big/slow/cumbersome to do so.

There’s a little more detail to shooting - but I shan't go into excessive detail in the Grand Illusion, as it’s meant to be a "taste" rather than the actual ruleset.

As some of you might know, the free rules "S.D.Z.A. Basic" are coming soon-ish - and I thought it might be nice to have pictures of community painted miniatures included in the Download and on the new Website when its finished.

I've had some responses, but there's always room for more - so forward your pictures to [email protected] (as high a resolution as you can manage please) for consideration for inclusion (don't forget your name etc, so I can give you full credit).

Also, don't forget - you can still get 15% off Orders till the new Website is up and running (be fast, this won't last forever) either by Emailing me and doing a manual order (Details are on the official Nexus Miniatures Page - https://www.facebook.com/nexus.miniatures (https://www.facebook.com/nexus.miniatures) and the 'Store' section of the current website - http://www.nexus-miniatures.co.uk/home (http://www.nexus-miniatures.co.uk/home)).

If you want to know more about the background for my little world, there's loads of information and fiction on the blog too - http://sdza-nexus-miniatures.blogspot.co.uk/ (http://sdza-nexus-miniatures.blogspot.co.uk/)

A few More (just five) Skimmers are now up on Ebay, these are in advance of the new Webstore - there will be no more available until then. A little more expensive than the regular price - but blame Ebay and slightly higher production costs for the rest of the batch for that, shipping is based upon wrapped weight (its heavy). As before, these are limited edition - and these five are amongst the last of the run (the mold is dead now) -

Two Skimmers Gone last night (to the same guy as well) - I'm hoping for more when the new Website is ready, but (at the moment) I'm not sure of the quantity.

It's that time again!- Nexus Miniatures September Update!

Right, the Old Website is gone (sniff, sniff) which is a good sign really as the new Website will be up and running soon!

For now, Miniatures will be available by Emailing me Directly at [email protected] or certain "deals" are available via "Van Helsings Clearance Cupboard" on Ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/vanhelsingsclearancecupboard (along with other interesting non Nexus junk for sale LoL)

Prices are currently still sale prices (good for you, not for me LoL) BUT those discounted prices WILL CEASE BEFORE THE END OF THE MONTH - so, if you are after a few bargains order as soon as possible!

What can you expect with the new Website -

A nice new shiney "space" (with some rules teasers)

A Special Edition Uni-Tech Officer, he comes with Both heads and a Heavy Blaster Pistol (very limited)

More new Artwork from Carl Stoelzel (get cracking Carl)

Some sexy rules 'leaks' (eventually leading to the release of the Free Beta Rules) - the 3.8 (yes, to those "in the know" the rules have jumped a revision) should be with my trusty Highwaymen soon for some last minute playtesting - including NEW AND UPDATED Telekinesis Rules, which were on the cards for being omitted as they were too complex and unwieldy in game play - but thanks to a further flash of brilliance (modest ain't I) they have been streamlined to match the core SDZA Mechanics!

Theres a LOT to look forward too, and to keep you going in the mean time - a sneaky peek!

THE MARK II M.A.T.A.T! "Eddie-29" unit is a significant upgrade to the Mark I - Eddie-29 units have a more independent A.I. - which, though more loyal to the people he is assigned to - is way more aggressive. More suited to the battlefield than urban pacification, they have a much wider range of weaponry and upgrades than the Mark I - all of which are included with the kit!

Manual Orders are still Currently being done (and still at 15% off and with a chance of winning one of the Limited Edition Cobra Skimmers) so if you need to bulk up your collection (hopefully ready for the free S.D.Z.A. Rules release) don't leave it too long - as we're getting close with the new Webstore now.

A quick "heads up" too, Shipping will be going up a little - lately the larger orders have mean either the shipping costing (a lot) more than my Rates, or me having to send them insured - rather than charge by order size (which is actually a rip off anyway) as of today these new shipping rates apply (but they are still really competitive though)

UK - £2.00
E.U. - £4.25
Rest of the World - £7.20

As usual, if you are unsure and need help, please feel free to contact me by Email (the [email protected] comes straight to my phone).

A little treat for the first 10 People to spend £35 or more in the new Webstore - not including Shipping Charges (including Facebook) will get one of the prototypes of the new Uni-Tech Officer with Heavy Blaster Pistol (and this kit will NEVER get a general release)!

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7Ptnpi41PwM/Vj95Vt8_mTI/AAAAAAAAA68/n9LGEGA6M-c/s320/USE.jpg)

FYI four have already gone!

A version of this cool dude will be released at a later date, but it will be quite different to the prototype.

In addition, those who manage to get ahold of one of these VERY exclusive Miniatures - will also receive two of the prototype Toppers (one Street Level and One Tech Level) to base him (and a friend) on.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-rO8Ah0Nyra4/Vj95bIA8PDI/AAAAAAAAA7E/UIyXBm6GkfY/s400/USE%2B02.jpg)

The picture shows 4 variants of each topper, but there are actually six different styles of each.

One of the things I know Folks have been waiting for!

The Seraphis Institute - Our Third Army Deal!

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-htA7l0n4_Gs/VkpA0Q9zFPI/AAAAAAAAA9I/dRLzwMN4FdI/s640/Seraphis%2BArmy%2BDeal.png)

All Members of the Seraphis Institute are unique individuals, some are Primes - others experienced and dangerous individuals from other Agencies, the only fact people should know is that the Seraphis Institute has Powerful, Driven, 'Irregular Agents' working for it.

There are no Troops in the Seraphis Institute, they are a Faction built entirely of powerful and unique Characters (although the final S.D.Z.A. Rules will include custom guidelines to create your own 'Irregular Agents')

These are new to the S.D.Z.A. setting have been sculpted by the incredibly talented Ian Mountain - and are now available for pre-order!

The Pre-Order Price is £23.50 - the Release RRP is £25.00!

They will be shipped immediately upon receipt from the Casters - which is likely to be late December, Just in Time for Christmas!

Other models purchased at the same time as a pre-order will be shipped with the pre-order.

ANOTHER Miniature I know people have been wanting - our first 'Deadling Hero' - The Prophet!

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-At0Wwg6yW50/VkpEJy8LxHI/AAAAAAAAA9Q/903SQzJ_1_I/s640/The%2BProphet.png)

The Prophet is a mysterious figure in the modern legends of the S.D.Z.A. World.

Once Human, he is a Prime from a Parallel Dimension, on his home world, the Prophet and three other members of the "Dark Initiative" were the ones who DELIBERATELY created the RDS virus, and turned their world into the first Deadworld.

So far, the only member of the Dark Initiative that has passed through to 'our' world is the Prophet - an he can draw the occasional sploog of Carrion through as well, even remotely at a distance - and other "Deadling" creatures have been seen accompanying him.

A totally unique Model to the S.D.Z.A. setting, he has been sculpted by the remarkably talented Mark Evans? - and is now available for pre-order!
The Pre-Order Price is £5.00 - his Release RRP is £5.50!
He will be shipped immediately upon receipt from the Casters - which is likely to be late December, Just in Time for Christmas!

As usual - Other models purchased at the same time as a pre-order will be shipped with the pre-order.

Why not Treat Yourself!

IT'S A BIG THING!

I meant to post this a couple of days ago, but I've been really REALLY ill for a few days now - and I'm only just seeing the back end of it.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-zS_ODhF1_B0/Vk_ReQhMckI/AAAAAAAAA_o/Tvt8YZDrxWE/s400/Pre-Releases.png)

"IT'S A BIG THING!" is meant as a big thankyou to everyone who's supported the Nexus Endeavour - from now until the release day of our most excellent Upcoming Releases of the Seraphis Institute (Ruby James, Dr Steele, P.b, Sterling Mercury, Agent Solo, and Major Colt) and our first Deadling Hero "The Prophet" all orders (including those placed already) that have a pre-release item in their order - will have their names placed into a draw - the winners of which can win one of the following.

1st Prize for the Draw is a Ral Partha T-Rex RRP £24.95
(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-iScGclqHCcE/Vk_RcoPzD_I/AAAAAAAAA_U/GsVAJIKhuqI/s200/1st%2B-%2BRal%2BPartha%2BT-Rex%2B%2528RRP%2B%25C2%25A324.95%2529.jpg)

The names will be drawn at random, for each prize - once your name has been picked - you will not be "left in the hat" for the rest of the draws. No cash alternative is offered, and your Prize will be shipped with your pre-order.

I don't "do" Black Friday sales personally, I won't even shop in them myself!

BUT I know everyone likes FREE STUFF so - anyone placing an Order of £20+ (not including Shipping) on Friday during "UK" Hours (6am to 6am) will get a "Freebie" -

You can choose from -

A twin Pack of Brotherhood Heroes - NXBP

Or a twin Pack Rebel/Freedom Fighters (Porky & Do-Gooder) - NXRP

Or a three Pack of Morlock Foot Soldiers - NXMT.

Absolutely Free! Just leave a Message in the Order Notes Box!

Coming Soon - The Prometheans!

These Monstrous Mutations (scientists theorized were caused by the R.D.S. Virus) - first came wading in at the Island of Bermuda on December 31st 1999.

Humanity as a whole call them "Prometheans" - some of these monstrous R.D.S. mutations stand taller even than an Sentry, those that do either have little (or no) epidermis covering their bodies. Freely showing the muscles, sinews, and tendons that are normally hidden beneath the skin - and yet, they do not bleed (unless injured, which is hard to do). There are smaller Prometheans, usually naked - twisted in back and bone, or bloated - with a wide almost shark like mouth full of ogreish teeth.

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-jSYQ_8SocHg/VmAJDas7mNI/AAAAAAAABBo/kFrCAqdPozY/s640/Prometheans.png)

The big skinless creatures have been classified by Varian Blackwood as " Inanis-Cutem" (lit. empty skin), whereas the smaller more stupid creatures are referred to as "Stultus" (lit. stupid) as they lack anything but the most basic intelligence.

There seeming random attacks on City States world wide - there is a lighting filled bank of fog, they appear - attack and then vanish just as quickly in the same way.

The Inanis-Cutem models (the big skinless ones) are around 90mm tall, and the smaller Stultus models will be around 60mm tall

After Chatting with the Caster today, the Masters are done and we should be entering the Production Run Shortly - so PLEASE BE AWARE the pre-order prices WILL be ending soon.

If you want to save a little - order now!

(And don't forget its your last chance for the "Its a Big Thing" Prize Draw Either LoL)

Many thanks to everyone who's placed an order - I hope you will be as excited as I am when you get your new Toys!

VARIAN'S HOLIDAY SPECIAL!

I am aware Christmas is an economically tough time of year for everyone, rather than just have a panic buying Christmas discount like a lot of online retailers do at this time of year to try and coax people into spending money - Linda and I have come up with an idea that might encourage you to treat yourself and help others into the bargain.

Nexus Miniatures will be having a bit of a break (a very small bit LoL) from Monday the 21st of December until the Monday the 11th of January - so no NEW orders will be processed during that time - as I said, no NEW orders - so don't worry, I WILL still be working, writing, posting pre-orders etc. I just won't be processing any new orders till after the 11th of January - and anyone placing an order between Monday the 21st of December and Monday the 11th of January will have 25% of their order value donated to Crisis (http://www.crisis.org.uk/ (http://www.crisis.org.uk/)) the UK Homeless Charity - an email listing those who donated will include everyone's names along with the actual donation - https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/# (https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#)

IN ADDITION (OMG DOES THIS MAN NEVER STOP - the Answer is no, I don't) all such orders when posted will contain little "pressies" for you to. An extra Miniature (or two), Sweeties, Prototype Base Toppers (basically whatever I think is cool that I can add to your orders) - lastly, the biggest order (and thereby the biggest donation) will have their Name (or a Character Name of their creation) included in a (probably more than one) piece of S.D.Z.A. Fiction, and that character (or an analogue of you yourself) have their own Profile in the Rules too (I may even do a specially converted Miniature as well, but that depends upon how good the idea is LoL)

So, this year as well as helping yourself to some Nexus Toys - you can help others too.

Nexus Miniatures has been having a break (a very small break LoL) until the Monday the 10th of January (although I have been working, writing, answering emails, and posting stuff etc. during that time).

I just won't be processing any new orders till the 10th of January - and anyone placing an order up till midnight on Monday the 10th of January will have 25% of their order value donated to Crisis (www.crisis.org.uk) the UK Homeless Charity - an email listing those who donated will include everyones names along with the actual donation.

So, ring the new-year in by helping yourself to some Nexus Toys - you can helping others to - but be quick, only a few days left!

Get your last few pre-orders in for the Seraphis Institute and the Prophet - the castings should be with me mid next week (assuming the delivery services are on time) - so the pre-order Prices will end (and don't forget the "It's a Big Thing" Prize Draw either).

Spoke to Ainsty Castings LITERALLY moments ago, he's waiting on his Metal Order to carry on casting - he's rang his supplier, and it should be here tomorrow (he should have had it monday/tuesday) - fingers crossed shipping should begin Thursday/Friday :D

BE AWARE PRE ORDER PRICES ON THE SERAPHIS INSTITUTE AND THE PROPHET WILL END THE MOMENT I RECEIVE STOCK! (AND we'll have re-stocks of the D-Rangers too)

It's been a long (ish) and time-consuming journey - thanks to everyone for their orders and thanks for your patience and support!

Good News, Great News, and Not-So-Good News

Great News I have Fresh Castings!

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-hSZ0xzJ0Ydw/VrH6mCaiTPI/AAAAAAAABEo/cVkVjGbv_j8/s400/01.jpg)

The Not so Good news is Harry solo got "mashed" during mastering (see picture) - which means He's going to have to be repaired and re-mastered sadly (so Harry Solo is INDEED going Solo ;) ) It happens sometimes like this (to be frank, I was actually more worried about the Prophet) I'm afraid its "just part of the Biz" as it were, all I can do is plough on!

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2JPOSukF2bE/VrH6lNbt2dI/AAAAAAAABEg/3MmPAna7yo8/s320/02.jpg)

Rather than make people wait any further, I'm sending the Bulk of Everyones Order now - and Harry will be sent later on as soon as he's repaired, re-mastered, and Cast Up.

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WRu4Z3xH1yQ/VrH6nVlUkbI/AAAAAAAABEs/WBmCZvxD-Qw/s400/05.jpg)

For those Waiting - we have two options - Store Credit , which I will double to £8 for the inconvenience of waiting even longer - please contact me at [email protected] on how to do that - and I'll set up a specific code JUST for you (see how GREAT I am) or I can refund you the Cost of Your Harry Solo. The Seraphis Institute "Lite" as I am calling it, is available now - and Harry will (of course) be made available at a Later Date.

ON THE GREAT SIDE - The Castings are STUNNING (the Prophet is so nice, I won't lie - I got a little weepy)

We also have VERY Limited Quantities of the Seraphis Pistol (four to a pack) for £1.00 a set.

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GSJRVS3s2UI/VrH6lm2f6aI/AAAAAAAABEk/YLpy_cKEzgc/s320/04.jpg)

The D-Rangers are now re-stocked too, and we now have the new "Six Pack" Deal - Six D-Rangers, plus three Helmet Sprues for £18.00!

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-xwTshJiuImc/VrH6k1irEDI/AAAAAAAABEc/t691ShctyCc/s400/03.jpg)

LASTLY due to an Overstock, Dr Mackalay is now "On Sale" for £2.00 - the Twin Pack with Pisacha has also been reduced - Now's your chance to get this "Magnetic" Hero at a knock down Price!

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-pWdLNTw1LqA/VrH7U03cAMI/AAAAAAAABE0/lr_P6LO0OTE/s400/318885920.jpg)

Shipping Starts Processing Today - I'm doing it in "Order Order" just to be fair!

Drew's Big Box Of Bargains

We have a New Category in the Store - "Drew's Big Box Of Bargains" - Overstocks, end of lines, products being retired will all go in here.

Currently its our Sci Fi Trooper, we could never get the weapon Sprue to Cast - so we're selling off all the dead stock to make room for when we get it re-mastered - the weapon sprues need a little work, but are perfectly useable - and the Bodies are perfect castings (the Caprican Rifle looks really good on them) - as a set, or separately.

(https://dpbfm6h358sh7.cloudfront.net/images/7605827/366078437.jpg)

Also in their currently is Dr Makalay our own Magnetic Mutant - as both a Single Casting, or as a Deal.

(https://dpbfm6h358sh7.cloudfront.net/images/7605827/318959442.jpg)

Drew's Big Box Of Bargains Part II

Another Addition to "Drew's Big Box Of Bargains" three of the limited edition Mark 1 Cobra Light Skimmers!

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Ffu1QHG1IzU/Vrc__harUUI/AAAAAAAABFE/Ic8esWN2xFw/s200/20160207_125048.jpg)

This Special Offer is because I have three Skimmers with slightly rougher castings than normal - perfectly usable, they just require a little more work than usual.

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-M8cgE9St1nQ/VXGd-64AA4I/AAAAAAAAAUY/SC71LPx4Q8I/s400/01.jpg)

I have just three of these at the reduced price of £16.99 - and when they are gone, they are gone.

Don't forget to have a mooch around as my shipping is flat rate - not matter the size of the order ;)

The Webpage is at last live, from now on all Miniatures News and Releases will be featured here, leaving the "Yesterdays Future Today" Blog Free for Rules, Fluff, and Fiction.

(Oddly enough nearly in time for the second anniversary of the SDZA project - but more on that later).

Everything is accessible from the new main page - the Nexus Miniatures Webstore, SDZA Facebook Group, Nexus Miniatures Facebook Page, and the Yesterdays Future Today Blog (not to mention a selection of really useful links, an Art Gallery, and eventual Miniatures Pages).

So, update your Bookmarks and Favourites People - THIS IS WHERE IT GETS REAL!

Post by: Van-Helsing on February 07, 2016, 10:08:06 PM
This coming week marks 10 years since I first wrote anything about the world of Super-Hero Dinosaur Zombie Apocalypse - I could not POSSIBLY tell you the exact date, but it was the second week of February 2006 when I finally put pen to paper and began this crazy journey.

Of course it didn't have a name back then - it was just series of scatty ideas that came "out of me ed"

I wanted to do SOMETHING with it, I'd always loved Old Movies and TV - and my own gaming (both with Miniatures and RPG's) always leaned in that direction - of course, what to do with it.

(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-gHlu-bKLNVU/Vrew-myucfI/AAAAAAAABIs/H5eFEfKePPM/s400/Ten%2BYears.png)

I'd left Games Workshop partly to do with a shift in the way Staff and Customers were being treated, but mostly to do with my wanting to help my Dad. Mum was very ill with Parkinsons Disease - and my Dad wasn't well (he'd injured his back saving mum from a fall - and his memory was going fast, which turned out to be Altzheimers) so he needed help.

To the outside world my life was totally "on hold" and to an extent it was - but it did give me lots of time to write.

So, to celebrate that auspicious day when I finally decided to do something with all these ideas that were spinning around my head - this week will see a few "sneaky peeks" and Deals - so check back regularly, or miss out!

TODAYS DEAL!

The "Double Initiative" Deal

1 x Mark I Blackwood Industries Sentry Unit - cast in Resin - 28mm Scale

6 x Mutant Heroes (two of each) - cast in white metal - 28mm Scale

4 x alt. Mutant Hero Head Sprues (twio of each pair of heads) - cast in white metal - 28mm Scale

RRP if purchased Separately - £40.00

Buy the Deal for just £32! That's a 20% discount!

For this week ONLY, and there's only a Limited Number Available!

We went back to the drawing board with that, we're producing three different ones - with different head and weapon options - it's worth the wait ;)

We are now down to the very last Uni-Tech Army Deal (which puts me down now to the last three Limited Edition Cobra Skimmers, one in the Army Deal and two separate Skimmers) - when they are gone they are gone I am afraid, and this particular version will be discontinued as the molds are "dead" now.

I'm a Retro sort of a guy, old fashioned with my tastes for most things - but in particular Gaming.

I LOVE Old School Gaming, so its no great surprise there's some influence within S.D.Z.A.

That's not to say its about rules, although there are certain influences present there - S.D.Z.A. is at the end of the day a Hybrid Game, part ways between an RPG and a Tabletop Skirmish game. The biggest influence is in the feel and the tone of S.D.Z.A. - and this is supported wonderfully by some of Carl Stoelzels wonderful Artwork (of Stoelzels Structures Fame - http://www.wargamevault.com/browse/pub/4244/Stoelzels-Structures (http://www.wargamevault.com/browse/pub/4244/Stoelzels-Structures)).

I'll just let you soak these in - and I'll share more tomorrow.

Don't forget the Anniversary Deals are still on until Monday the 15th of February (it should be around Lunchtime when I get home) - so be quick!! The Nexus Miniatures Webstore - https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/# (https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#)

More Piccies Tomorrow!

Post by: Van-Helsing on February 14, 2016, 10:12:48 PM
A Little about the S.D.Z.A. "Multiverse" (yea, you read right - the MULTIVERSE)!

The S.D.Z.A. World exists pretty much at the centre of the known Multiverse - above the Primogenial Plane (where the S.D.Z.A. World sits) is the Astral Plane, and below the Primogenial lies the Ethereal.

The Primogenial Plane is surrounded by literally millions of other realities, but here I deal with the four most important ones.

(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-IZhyQnZ3P00/VsDsAeKYohI/AAAAAAAABP8/OblgnhDYNqo/s640/seven%2Bplanes.jpg)

The Primogenial Earth, is an analogue of our own earth in the real world - with all the same corruption, greed, and corporate grabbing we're seeing in the modern world. The big difference is there it remained hidden from public sight, unchecked until it was too late and it caused the "Year of Chaos" which led to the Primes, the Dinosaurs, and the Carrion almost destroying the World.

Deadworld is located on the Ethereal Plane - and has a History that closely parallels the Primogenial Earth in the fact the corruption and greed led to its downfall, but on Deadworld it was the Dark Initiative not a Corporation that caused the fall - and rather than it being accidental, it was deliberate. The Dark Initiative, like the Initiative on "our" Earth were a peacekeeping organization - but unlike our Initiative, that was based on principles of Justice and Freedom - the Dark Initiative were Dictatorial Fascists, and when its leader (The Prophet) concluded that only the living committed crimes - Deadworlds fate was set. It is a dark, barren, and desolate place - where the few living survivors are kept for food and hunted for Sport by Carrion, Strix, and Vrykolakas.

Gimel World is a different World again entirely - Technology Advanced more quickly there than any other reality - England was destroyed by Nuclear Weapons during the Napoleonic War, the remnants of British Empire moved to the Americas (re-naming it Albion) by 1910 they had not only the Internet, but virtual worlds WITHIN the Internet. In 1912 when a Comet was discovered heading towards Earth, it was decided much of the Earths Population would go into Hibernation - kept alive by Sleep Machines that kept the bodies vital and the brains of the sleepers active for the 100 year long sleep till the Scientist Gimel believed the World Would have recovered from the disaster. The Sleepers awakened to find a world with a shattered moon, risen oceans, monsters, mutants, giant intelligent animals, and weird science.

Weird World is not a single planet, but a chain of Earths that all exist within the same reality. The Many Earths exist as echo's of each other orbiting the sun in a chain of astral bodies that are each slightly out of phase with each other. Time does not pass at the same rate on all of these worlds, some are still Prehistoric, whilst others are Futuristic. All is possible in the Weird World Universe. Most of the Earths are distinct, and have no contact - some (though it is not common) actually have open dialogue  and (though it is rare) actually trade with other Earths. Player Created Worlds using the Nexus Ruleset are considering to be canon - and part of the Weird World Chain.

Last (but not least) we have the Red Earth, the Red Earth was finally conquered by the Uliri in 1953 (actually the "Uliri" are an are an extrasolar race originally from Alpha Centauri who formed their last colony on Mars) - turning "New Mars" (the name given to Earth by the Uliri) into a centre of commerce and trade for the Uliri Empire - almost entirely terraformed by the Uliri Crimson-  New Mars is famed for its Gladiatorial Tournaments, where fighters from all over the Uliri Empire fight for money and their freedom. The Greatest of which is the Earth Man known only as Stormcrow.

Well, there you have it - another glimpse into my insane imagination LoL!

More tomorrow!

It's been asked for, so here it is - the Seraphis Institute Field Operatives Deal!

(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-CrF7xuWe5YI/VtTMQj8aUHI/AAAAAAAABQM/k4I8PByB9Hk/s640/Field%2BAgent%2BDeal.bmp)

The Seraphis Institute in one form or another has existed since the time of the Crusades, its mandate has always been one of investigation and exploration, and has always stood for knowledge and learning above all else - even during the 17th Century, when they found themselves at odds with the Catholic Church.

All Members of the Seraphis Institute are unique individuals, most Irregular Agents are Primes with Unearthly Powers - this set includes Doctor Klae Steele, Charlie "Ruby" James, P.b, and Sterling Mercury.

There are no Troops in the Seraphis Institute, they are a Faction built entirely of powerful and unique Characters (although the final S.D.Z.A. Rules will include custom guidelines to create your own 'Irregular Agents')

Also available Separately, or as Twin Packs - and Best of All, you save money over buying them separately!

Though I'm sure some might be offended by this one - I assure folks, that's not my intent.

"Garbage, the Whisper" as she's called, just stays very close to the source Material (a big "no prize" if you know LoL)!

Whisper Carrion are smarter than your average Wandering Dead, acting as Leaders in Carrion Hordes (or as a Lieutenant to the Prophet himself).

"Garbage" is a single piece Casting, and will be made available for pre-order during the Retro-Booster.

Ronin-X (A.K.A. Jack Hughman) is a Rogue Prime - Not all Primes are allied with a Faction, and have been dubbed "Ronin" by the Initiative.

This guy was sculpted some time ago - and though I love the quirky style of this sculpt, I wasn't entirely sure about releasing it - but those who've seen it have been nagging me to, so it's going to get a limited release through the Retro-Booster (and then maybe available as a promo model, and at events).

The Giaour are Rednecks and Survivalists who have lived in the Barrens so long they've evolved into a self mutilating cannibal society and live alongside the Carrion - often picking over their leftovers for food. Vile in the extreme, with an almost hive-like structure to a tribe - and each tribe as an unnaturally seductive Queen . . . .

WHO ARE NEXUS STUDIOS! (Nexus Studios is who we are, Nexus Miniatures are what we make).

Well, theres me Drew Wood - the mad ideas, the writing, the planning etc - thats my department. I'd call it a one man band, but I have help (Cats not withstanding).

Carl Stoelzel - long time friend and confidant, he's my "Art Master General". His doodles breath life into my worlds, he's also turned out to be a rather brilliant Z-Brush sculptor too (it's Carls work you are seeing in the previews)

Dave Stone does my Resin Castings, and sculpts stuff for me on occassion - he also sells S.D.Z.A. Terrain and Suitable Prehistoric Creatures through his business Wargames Terrain Workshop.

Andy Lyon of Ainsty Castings does my Metal Castings, he also sells a great selection of terrain (his factory stuff would be great for a Uni-Tech installation).

Dave Crowther and Darren Pugh are my chief testers - I bounce wild ideas off them, and the playtest rules.

Lastly, my long suffering partner Linda - without her support and tolerance - I wouldnt even be attempting what I'm doing at the moment (Thanks Speedy)!

One of the things we are trying out, for "Henchmen" Models (for want of a better term) is a multi-pose system.

It dawned on me that there was actually no need for separate arms and weapons, whilst they are a converters dream (I myself like separate head and weapon sprues) - it struck me that there are pretty much just four "poses" for a model holding a rifle - Aiming, At Rest, Raised, and an "over the shoulder" pose - pretty much everything else was just a variation on a theme.

So, after discussing it with Carl Stoelzel (BooBoo on here - who's turned out to be something of a genius with Z-Brush) this was what grew out of that basic idea.

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-LnMOlozYQNE/VxIrEqovw7I/AAAAAAAABWQ/LykBeRW7DDgCfLNqR3aftfClW51s8nHKwCLcB/s400/Final%2Bpreviews%2B02%2Bvillain%2Btroops.png)

Separate Head Sprues (as many as realistically possible) a Sprue of "Grunt" heads, and a special sprue for Squad Leaders/Officers etc, four Torso's, and four Sets of legs. Without repositioning the Toroso's (so just front facing, no swivelling to the left or right), and giving the heads a different tilt or pitch theres a lot of variation already.

If it works well (and they sell of course LoL) for the Henchmen, I can see this as an option for characters too - with each Character being provided with an Armed and Unarmed Torso.

Tomorrow, a little Chatter about the newer Characters and about the Alternate Futures of S.D.Z.A.!

STOP PRESS! The Salute Discount has been extended to Monday - why you ask, because two very nice gentlemen got in touch and asked.

Rather than just let them do it (which would be unfair - and its hard to extend a discount code for just two people LoL) I've extended the codes life (SALUTE16) on the system.

But Don't forget, although the discount is extended - you only have till Monday to take advantage, Tuesday onwards everything is back to normal!

The Executioners were taken from the best of the best of the O.C.T.P. (Omega Colony Thought Police) and trained to be killers, their job was to maintain order over the population of Omega Colony, and exterminate those who could not (or would not) fit in.

Slight liberties taken with these, as you don't see rifled troops in the source material (at least not Good Guys) - but, I wanted to expand what was available for them for them to work within the confines of S.D.Z.A. Carl's done a great job on making the rifle match the sidearm!

The Salute Promotion is now long over, but all is not lost - there are still goodies to be had INCLUDING some nice bits in the "Drews Big Box Of Bargains" Section!

The last three Cobra Light Skimmers - slightly rougher than I would like, are up for grabs at a discounted price, perfectly servicable - they just need a little extra work.

Due to an over casting - Dr Mackalay is just £2.00 (you could pick up two and do both variants - he comes with two heads after all) - this of course means the Brotherhood Heroes set is cheaper too.

The MK1 Sci-Fi Security Troops are cheap too, the bodies are perfect (so great for conversions at just £1.00 a pop)  or you can pick them up with the slightly miscast head and weapons sprue for £1.50.

Mark I Blackwood Industries Sentry Units (for just £10) these kits are "seconds" - that is, they are broken in some way (usually at an elbow or knee joint) - ALL the parts are there, there are just some minor repairs need doing.

The Same goes for the Apocalypse Security Personnel 'M.A.T.A.T.'(reduced to £8.50) and his Big Brother the 'Eddie-29' Mark II M.A.T.A.T. (Reduced to £10.00) - again, ALL the parts are there, there are just some minor repairs need doing. 

Think of them as Multi MULTI part Kits ;)

Lastly, again due to an overstock, the Morlock Mob is Back for just £11.50 for a Set of six!

Salute is Over - But Bargains are Still to be Had!!!!!!!

Another "Coming Soon" a concept for Major Caprican (Supreme Commander of the Caprican Legion) by Martin Buck - who sculpted the original Caprican Legion For me.

(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-whvdDQB9AcE/V0RC1Fnn_AI/AAAAAAAABfc/9d2CFPNdK34jhhQ2pEzyiMxHTIz9k_CJgCLcB/s400/Major%2BCaprican.png)

Major Caprican (and two more I shall reveal over the next few days) will only be available as part of the Retro-Booster pre-order promotion, and then later at shows and as part of future promotions.

In addition, three of those placing pre-orders as part of the Retro Booster will win (in a prize draw) a set of Master Castings of the three Promotional Miniatures - so stay tuned!

The first Months "Retro-Booster" Pre-Orders are up, singly and as deals (including an everything deal).

(https://scontent.fman1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/14063795_1340102669357028_7201856549200774119_n.jpg?oh=cb255515a5f84bf97fe61b78e59de7f1&oe=5851DCE3)

Pre-Orders will run till the end of September (expect surprises at the end of September too) and will be shipped upon receipt from the Casters - which is likely to be the end of October (so MUCH faster than a Kickstarter LoL) - prices are (obviously) better than regular release prices.

LOADS more to come - so keep watching ;)

If you want to add anything further to your order, simply enter the special code that is sent (by Email to you) after you place your order (without the parenthesis) at checkout with any future "add ons" to get free shipping later on - this option runs for the entire Promotion, so (like a Kickstarter) you don't have to worry about extra Shipping Charges.

PLEASE NOTE - that if you add something that "gets revealed" right at the end, all items will be shipped with that items release date (but it will likely only be an extra few weeks).

SO STAY TUNED!

Today begins the Spotlights on the Current Pre-Releases for the Retro Booster!

Todays Spotlight - THE HIGHWAYMEN!

(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QqDZBF6PQyk/V7mrpqCwR9I/AAAAAAAABjM/uDGy5ZIznBwsWjY5spbp7V4pFQlhcETCQCLcB/s400/Highwaymen.png)

The Highwaymen come from all strata of SDZA Society, the Military, the D-Rangers, Initiative Security etc. - the life and job attract those who are "danger addicted" and/or want to make a lot of money fast.

But, in game terms they are not really a Faction in their own right (though you can "spin" your Army List that way), instead they are Mercenaries who can work with Good or Bad guys - sometimes unscrupulous Highwayman can be in the Hire of Uni-Tech - whilst another might be seen helping bring much needed supplies to a Shanty Town out in the Barrens.

Two Such Highwaymen are Ross Barns and Chris Lee.

Barns first made a name for himself during the Arlington skirmish, and was instrumental in taking down Doombringers troops. Chris Lee, as usual, was by his side - as the second in command of Barn's elite Highwaymen Unit known as "The Disposables", Lee has proved his worth in a fight time and time again.

Both are up for Advance Order as part of this Months Nexus Retro-Booster!

Keep Watching" "SAME RETRO-TIME, SAME RETRO-CHANNEL"!

As a lot of you might know Nexus Miniatures are running their first "Retro-Booster" Promotion and the first lot of molding/casting is almost funded after a little over a week.

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qyL81pgIliU/V7JnYhnhAbI/AAAAAAAABh4/TQA8jc2_4hkyNja6E8pv2Lb1uNSgMFqfgCPcB/s320/NXRBD06.png)

The first "wave" is made up of all new Models to the Range, and the "New Defenders" have already been unlocked.

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JeiHJOmrtd8/V7y32_agslI/AAAAAAAABjw/vPWamjez4UEKIH4vp541c97aJ1hfN_YygCPcB/s320/New%2BBoost.png)

We are so close to unlocking even more exciting Models, Like the "Red Sector Cleanup Crew" - a ramshackle Crew of ex Asteroid-Miners turned Adventurers; and things are about to get Stranger with the release of "Elle" and her friends.

(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-25SvQ02C1do/V7dHgpJlgmI/AAAAAAAABjE/i0d66LM2dl0nmbi_4NohvLV3eUyHkrqAACPcB/s400/Red%2BSector%2BCrew.png)

So Pop over to the Nexus Miniatures Retro Booster Advance Order Page - the more they sell the more exciting Miniatures they can "unlock" for you to order! It's running till the end of September, and best of all - if you order more than one "Boost" they send you a special Code so future pre-orders made as part of this Campaign cost no extra!

One I can't believe hasn't been done yet:

Sam Colt (Tom Magnum PI)
Ex special forces soldier Samuel Colt is now head of security for the island hideaway of a fantastically wealthy businessman. He is also a part time Private Investigator with a track record in righting wrongs amd loud shirts.

Jamieson Partridge Andrews (Jonathan Quayle Higgins)
The manager of the island hideaway Andrews is a British Army veteran who frequently clashes with brash American Colt but will always help him out of a 'spot of bother'. He is often seem with his two dogs Odin and Thor.

Darwin 'DW' Waterstone (Theodore 'TC' Calvin)
An ex military helicopter pilot DW now runs a successful tourist helicopter business. He also provides supporting muscle for Colt and the occasional helicopter ride.

Wilbur 'Charlie' Taylor (Orville 'Rick' Wright)
Bar owner and sometime underworld contact Charlie is an ex military friend of DW. He is often pulled in to Colt's investigations where his collection of weaponry comes in handy.

This group of island hopping detectives provide a blend of deduction, combat skills and cool cars and helicopters with a distinctly 80s vibe.

I'd like these figures!  :D

I actually found an episode of Magnum PI to watch yesterday. It made me want the figures even more!

I know the competition deadline has passed but I had a few more ideas and explanations:

Sam Colt (Tom Magnum PI) - Magnum uses a Colt handgun so it's a simple swap of names for the lead character. Colt should have a Magnum handgun in any figure. A Hawaiian shirt would be a must, perhaps with a baseball cap.

Jamieson Partridge Andrews (Jonathan Quayle Higgins) - the name has to be a similar three parter. The Magnum inspiration is called Higgins and the guy who invented the Higgins boat was Andrew Higgins hence the Andrews surname. Partridge is a swap for Quayle,  another ground bird and a posh sounding middle name. Jamieson seemed like a suitable replacement for Jonathan in terms of sound and style. His two dogs were Zues and Apollo so Odin and Thor are swap outs for similarly well known pantheons. Armed with a riding crop or cane Andrews would be dressed in military style shorts and shirt.

Darwin 'DW' Waterstone (Theodore 'TC' Calvin) - calling him Hobbes was the first thought but it made a two letter name (like TC) difficult.  Changing it to Waterstone after the creator of Calvin and Hobbes gave a better option. The letter D offered DW as a decent sounding name and Darwin came from The Amazing World of Gumball who also pay tribute to the Waterstone name. DW would have a handgun and perhaps an improvised hand weapon such as a large spanner. DW would be wearing a t-shirt with wide braces and a baseball cap.

Wilbur 'Charlie' Taylor (Orville 'Rick' Wright) - Wilbur is a straight swap for Orville (the Wright Brothers) and the Taylor part is from Charlie Taylor the unsung assistant of the Wright Brothers,  which also provides the nickname Charlie. As a former weapons specialist Charlie would be armed with an 80s smg or modern equivalent if they were sculpted as contemporary pieces. Charlie would have an 80s style safari jacket with a wide collared shirt.

Too much thought?  lol

Right, sorry this took so long - but there were so many great entries, and the winning entry was not just based on whether its a great idea or not, but also how it might "fit" into the SDZA Universe (an important one that, because as well as being produced as a miniature the winning entry will get rules and profiles too).

(https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s480x480/14202608_1358288300871798_747864408143486690_n.jpg?oh=c6808b6ff7fc3ff055cb53fbb7b08fab&oe=58401400)

AFTER MUCH talking, PM'ing, chatting (almost arguing) we've FINALLY come to a decision!

And the winner is David Thomas with "The Day After Today Kids"

With Honourable Mentions for ~

John Blake "SteelFlank" (because it amused me so much)

Kieron Mulholland "The C Team" (because its a quality Mash-Up)

Carl is going to make a start on the Renders soon so expect the "The Day After Today Kids" to be up for pre-order as part of the Next SDZA "Retro Booster"

As for the "Honourable Mentions" don't worry, I'll sort you out with a little something to for your efforts.

Krissy-K is everything Cloister is not (smart, educated - and washes regularly), and way out of his league - still Cloister has spent the last few years trying to win her back, and (no doubt) will keep trying.

Barry Arnold was not a "liked" man, even amongst his fellow "Cleaners" - when he got killed on duty, there were groans and moans when H.H. (Hard Holo) Technology was used to bring him back rather than just recruiting someone new.

(http://i68.tinypic.com/2moxg84.jpg)

When Barry's "death" experience failed to change him for the better, the usual happened and a copy was taken - the resulting H.H. recruit was braver, more handsome, and way more dynamic than the original - and Barry "Wildfire" Arnold was born.

Wildfire is so brave and talented, he generally operates on his own - which suits the original Barry, as he hates Wildfire's guts - often referring to him as s**g head behind his back . . . .

Red Sector Cleanup Crew IV - Rocky & Birdie

Rocky was demanded, so we brought him forward for you - AND on top of that, ANOTHER Special Edition Splutter Bot!

(https://dqzrr9k4bjpzk.cloudfront.net/images/7605827/422580309.jpg)

No all "Cleaners" are created equal, when Felix was affected by the RDS Virus he gained cat-like traits - enhanced smell, cat-like reflexes, night vision - the lot.

When Felix's Cousin Rocky was affected by the RDS Virus, he mutated into . . . a Dork . . . .

Sometimes Splutter-Bots go a little strange, generally eccentric - but "Birdie" as he came to be known, became downright offensive - regularly giving people the finger who p**s him off!

Birdie is strictly limited edition - only 60 will be made, and only 30 will be available for sale as part of the Retro-Booster. The remaining miniatures will be kept for shows or as prizes later on.

Both Models wickedly sculpted by Carl Stoelzel.

Retro-Booster Price £8.50 (No RRP for the Pair, as only Rocky will be available to purchase after the Retro-Booster ends)

One of the newer things we're trying is the "EZ-Build" system, rather than separate arms and weapons (which, lets face it are a pain to assemble at 28mm scale - especially in metal) we opted for separate torsos, legs, and heads only. It still gives a large amount of variation for each model with rotation and the fact different torsos can be used on different legs - but isn't a pain in the ass to do (like when the arm sticks to your fingers rather than the model LoL)

(https://scontent.fman1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s480x480/14225621_1362833190417309_7336428400522810162_n.jpg?oh=e82ecfeaa23ce4cc102e14a8e8409291&oe=584408DA)

So our Minions (or Grunts if you prefer) with be cast in this Manner.

Here you see the Troops of the Villainous Machine Empire, they hail from the far future in the S.D.Z.A. Universe and the Machine God of the Empire  - in typical terminator fashion - has started sending its Human Slave Troops back in time to ensure the Machine Empire comes to be (assuming the heroes of the "Future Force" don't stop them).

Getting close to a midway boost now, but whether we can unlock more amazing sculpts by Carl, is dependant upon you guys - spread the word, tell your friends about the amazing Retro-Sci-Fi range that Nexus Miniatures produces. Then who knows what will be available for Advance-Order as part of this Septembers Retro-Booster!

Two F.R.O's, two Outsiders (one male and one female) and a Head sprue is planned initially.

Midway Upgrade Boost!

All Equitum Troopers of the Machine Empire sets ordered during the Retro-Booster Promotion (INCLUDING those already ordered) will now also include the Sub-Commander Head Sprue!

(https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/l/t1.0-9/14322517_1368304483203513_4632401537125339356_n.jpg?oh=aaecbd1344e941e31e313102ba785258&oe=5839D3BC)

This alt head sprue is also great for adding variety to your squads of Equitum Troopers.

The Booster Ends at the end of September (well, Sunday the 2nd of October - we thought it better to let it run till the very end of the last week of September) and non of the pre-order items will "re-appear" in the Webstore till the pre-orders are shipped!

All Equitum Troopers of the Machine Empire sets ordered during the Retro-Booster Promotion (INCLUDING those already ordered) will now not onlu include the Sub-Commander Head Sprue, but will NOW also include a Machine Empire Rifle Sprue - MAKING THEM EVEN BETTER Value!

This alt head sprue is great for adding variety to your squads of Equitum Troopers, and the Rifle sprue is great for conversions - adding character to the Unarmed Equitum Trooper, or for use in Terrain Projects!

UPDATE AND COMPETITION TIME!

Just one week and one day till the end of this Retro-Booster, and I have to say its been a pretty popular!

But lets see if we can "unlock" anything else new shall we - the Morrow Men are Waiting in the Wings, as are a few More Surprises ;) IF we get there!

(https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p296x100/14344971_1376751219025506_6457696278925032096_n.jpg?oh=3f5171db50021e48c49348e281a8f4e6&oe=586DC4DB)

As you know, theres a wide range of great new sculpts from Carl Stoelzel up for pre-order - but the rest of the range is pretty impressive too (or so I've been told) - so why not "add-on" something else sexy from the D-Rangers to Sculder and Mulley or the The Seraphis Institute Field Operatives to the Initiative Army Deal theres quite a bit of choice!

(https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14368818_1376751195692175_4584534157552388855_n.jpg?oh=2701834dcee02f83d32275c5980108fb&oe=587B7BA2) (https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14470663_1376751805692114_8459988066530774017_n.jpg?oh=8ff728a1b151fcd6f37f5833f213020d&oe=58764167) (https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14359176_1376759315691363_2725932625758743877_n.jpg?oh=7ac648304361bf5139ec00eac73d83d3&oe=58397F01) (https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14368664_1376760802357881_6640136996726078118_n.jpg?oh=3ec979847af0323a31911321c0b03e49&oe=587B0CC0) (https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14448774_1376760952357866_5954447880973175146_n.jpg?oh=d684ec3123f89cd951c5a0090bdcd64d&oe=58805C51) (https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14448793_1376761005691194_401894500136922910_n.jpg?oh=19d7f2f0972cefbd2e29a0f545890907&oe=586BC7EF)

As an extra incentive to get those Morrow Men Unlocked - A "Nominate a Friend" COMPETITION!

Get your mates to place an order and mention your name in the Order Comments Box at checkout, the person who gets the most Nominations will win their ENTIRE Booster Order For Free! How Cool Is That!

And, as a FURTHER "Boost" (see what I did there) one of the Customers who Nominates a Friend will be chosen at Random and THEY will win THEIR Order for Free Too!

So tell your Gaming Club Mates, your Facebook Buddies, and Forum Friends all about Nexus Miniatures and the Retro-Booster and SPREAD THE WORD (and maybe get some sexy toys for free).

"NOMINATE A FRIEND" COMPETITION RULES"

To take part you must place an order for at least £20 before shipping (easy to do to be frank)

You can only Nominate one friend ONCE (so if you do 3 £20 orders and nominate "John Doe" each time, it only counts as one Nomination).

The "Nominated" Winner will win ALL his Retro-Booster Orders for free, and any payments will be refunded within one calendar Month of that Winners Name Being announced.

One of the Nominating Customers Names will be chosen, at random, and they will win their order (or orders) for Free Too, and any payments will be refunded within one calendar Month of that Winners Name Being announced.

All Winners Names are Final, no Negotiations will be entered into or acknowledged, and no Alternative Prizes Will be Offered.

TALK ABOUT NEXUS, ORDER STUFF, HAVE FUN! BUT DON'T FORGET YOU ONLY HAVE UNTIL THE 2ND OF OCTOBER!

The Strangers, The Prophet, and the Demon Gorgon.

(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-XOcN0OSBPaw/V-Zka80QT_I/AAAAAAAABnE/nYwj8AAgVKkhKScS3feZ1rOWyvYWCPzzACPcB/s640/02%2B%25283%2529.png)

The Prophets idea was a simple one, to create a weapon - a Deadling of such power that it could be released to destroy his enemies whenever the whim took him.

Unfortunately, the Multiverse is a fickle place - and on our Earth Uni-Tech had the same idea. They had taken the child of two Rogue Primes and "altered" her DNA making her the most powerful Scanner on the planet, she could not only control peoples minds she could alter the molecular structure of their bodies - phasing them out of this reality, or obliterating them completely.

The Demon "Gorgon" (as the Prophet called it) was the genetic mirror of Elle, the child Uni-Tech were experimenting upon - this of course was not known, until that fateful night when the Prophet Ported onto our World bringing the Demon Gorgon with him.

As they stepped out the crackling green portal - the Demon Gorgon almost seemed to sniff the air, paused, then stormed off into the night.

It wasn't till the boys (Finn, Caleb, and Mat) stumbled upon the Uni-Tech research facility where Elle was being held and rescued her that they encountered the Demon Gorgon and the -link between Elle and the Beast became an obvious danger.

Available now for pre-order - https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/The-Strangers-plus-their-Arch-Enemy-the-Demon-Gorgon/p/70918811/category=15426785 (https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/The-Strangers-plus-their-Arch-Enemy-the-Demon-Gorgon/p/70918811/category=15426785) - as part of the Current Retro-Booster!

NOT LONG NOW!

Anyone wanting to order the newest (and sexiest) additions to the Nexus Miniatures range only has until Sunday Night/Monday Morning (I've set it to shut the pre-orders down automatically) to get their Advance Orders in.

(https://scontent.fman1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p240x240/14495286_1382615355105759_9100097542243030287_n.jpg?oh=31b22ed9715bf42baffc80b7cd7912f2&oe=586863EC)

Monday onwards you will have to wait till they come into regular stock late this year/early next year.

(https://scontent.fman1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/14440803_1382615281772433_6948832805480323733_n.jpg?oh=522dc26d45a3b3ec2ae053dcee6b50c3&oe=587FD1BA)

The Conventionally sculpted Miniatures are being sent to be Mastered this coming week, and the 3D Printing commences too (it's all VERY exciting).

Our first "Retro-Booster" went quite well, though we didn't quite get there with the "I.D.D. Troopers and Command" we managed to unlock the "New Defenders", Red Sector Crew Sets 1 & 2, the Future Force and their Enemies of the Machine Empire, "The Strangers" and their Enemy "The Demon Gorgon", AND the Morrow Men!

Though we missed with the I.D.D. Troopers and Command, its not a reason to be sad - its something to look forward to as the next S.D.Z.A. Retro-Booster will lead off with them (and more)! Expect it in the New-Year.

Coming soon will be a Retro-Booster for our Horror Range "Sharp Distinction" - which will include all sorts of Lovecraft and Hollywood Monsters and Beasties.

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-zoTBHPqH1dU/V_JLDxM9tTI/AAAAAAAABpE/1EEg4by3ibgPpeQSST8PO5S7Vjfzn7iBwCLcB/s400/cooltext195494443628527.png)

We've decided to make the Sharp Distinction Retro-Booster much more simple, with a set range of Miniatures to pre-order over a slightly shorter period of time (no need to make it longer with no Unlocks to stretch for).

Here are some examples of what you can look forward to . . . .

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-WblJE7KOylI/V_JKd47V6zI/AAAAAAAABo0/msGFJSN-wFAxancN23Eji1orwoOgVjuRQCEw/s400/Examples%2BII.png)

Right now I'd like to thank EVERYONE who pre-ordered, and (to keep you excited) you can expect a "Nexus Update" every Monday. The Monday Updates will (from now on) have progress reports, news and plans, and even rules snippets from the upcoming "Nexus System" - a trimmed down version will be posted to Facebook, the Blog (http://sdza-nexus-miniatures.blogspot.co.uk/), the Lead Adventure forum, and Twitter ([email protected]) - but if you want the PDF sent to you simply Email [email protected] with "Nexus Update" in the subject line to start receiving the Nexus Update PDF each Monday.

Once again, thanks to EVERYONE who Boosted - and I hope you are all still as excited as I am :D

I was shifting the office around today (ready for the chaos that is new stock LoL) and found a Box with THREE of the now COMPLETELY out of Production Cobra Skimmers.

So, I've decided to resurrect the Uni-Tech Army Deal! But making it even BETTER!

(https://scontent.fman1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s480x480/14581321_1387073244659970_7284589250043374194_n.jpg?oh=9e309de21a9481a68dca9c80d94730e6&oe=58734375)

YOU WILL RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING GOODNESS IN YOUR DEAL!

6 x Uni-tech Troopers (two of each sculpt) 3 can be "built" as Elite Security Troopers (using the Helmets of the alt. Head Sprues)

2 x Uni-Tech Officers (you can use the head sprue to give variation.

1 x Mark 1 Cobra Light Skimmer (now totally Out of Production)

STOP PRESS!

I've had more than a few Messages off people exclaiming their disappointment at missing the Retro-Booster, mostly over the Future Force and Red Sector Crews.

So due to constant requests (don't say I don't listen) from Midnight (BST) till Midnight Sunday (BST) I will be re-opening the Retro-Booster - https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Pre-Release-Order-Items/c/15426785 (https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Pre-Release-Order-Items/c/15426785)

This is for pre-orders only, and will not unlock anything new - anyone who's had use of a pre-order code will find it re-activated for the duration of this extra "Boost" - and there are only limited quantities of each - so be quick because its first come first served.

There will also be two new Options - the "Red Sector Everything" Deal and the "Future Force Everything Deal" - two "one click" Deals to enable you to Get Everything for these two Additions to the Nexus Range in one go.

The new deals are NOT cheaper than the (current or previous) individual prices - so they do not invalidate your original orders. They have been included because some got confused by the previous order system.

I must stipulate that after Midnight on Sunday all the new items will still be available to view in the Pre-Order section but will not be available to purchase again until the New Year - so don't Email me because you've missed it (again LoL)!

Think of this as a "Pledge Manager" so you can add stuff :D

SERVICE INTERRUPTION ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Pre-Order Retro-Booster part of the Website is still online LoL (https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Pre-Release-Order-Items/c/15426785) not by choice, for some reasons the automated "cut off" didn't work - and (to make things even more fun) at the moment I can't even add the new stuff to the store LoL.

At some point between now and Saturday - I am going to HAVE to take the whole thing down for maintenance and get in there with a Knife :/

So DON'T panic if you look and the Webstore is missing/down - I am not suddenly going to go away, it's just essential maintenance I need to do to get things working again so I can add the Promethean and a new "accessory" to the webstore.

STAY TUNED!

A few of you might have remembered a couple of weeks ago I found some Cobra Skimmers that I though I didn't have! A few happy customers snapped them up fast - and I was asked if there were any more "deals" lying around LoL!

As it turned out, there were some other items of stock in the Box I didn't know I had. Morlocks, some of the Rebel/Freedom Fighters, some Prophets, and a few Caprican Legion.

The Capricans are currently being re-stocked, but if you can't wait I've listed these few I have left in the store. They are an "odd" number, so to give those who want them a chance - I've listed them individually. When these are gone, anyone wanting any will have to wait for the restocks when they get here.

https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Caprican-Legion-Trooper-No-1-Trooper-Officer/p/56661263/category=15326628

https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Caprican-Legion-Trooper-No-2-Rifle-Raised/p/56661286/category=15326628

https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Caprican-Legion-Trooper-No-3-Rifle-Lowered/p/56661336/category=15326628

There were some of the Rebel/Freedom Fighters (Porky and Do-Gooder) too, so they have been reduced to just £5 for a pair for a while. https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Rebel-Freedom-Fighters-Porky-&-Do-Gooder/p/56641802/category=15325059

Because of my "find" the Morlock Mob is BACK and even better! Just £10 for SIX Morlocks! Combine that with the Capricans I mentioned above, and Dr Makalay you have a Brotherhood Army! https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Morlock-Mob/p/60309257/category=16633048

Lastly, one of our Signature Models is now down to £4 for a short period - so snap him up while you can! https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Deadling-Hero-No-01-The-Prophet/p/56989816

Don't forget, we're down to our last Sentry too. https://nexus-miniatures.ecwid.com/#!/Mark-I-Blackwood-Industries-Sentry-Unit/p/56641820/category=15325060

Hi,

I may have missed this somewhere in these pages but what date are you expecting to ship the pre-orders, in particular the Red Sector Clean-Up Crew?

I've been sending Email Blasts about the delays, if anyone's not been getting them please drop me a line at [email protected] and I'll rectify that.

We've been MASSIVELY let down by not only the original 3D Printer but the Royal Mail as well - Losing a little over 11 weeks in "time".

We've been delayed was the Royal Mail actually LOST the first lot of Greens (even though they were sent Special Delivery - and a little over-insured for £2500) that were sent for casting.

They FINALLY turned up at the Sorting office in Lincoln, nowhere near Ranby (the casters home town) although that's still in Lincolnshire.

They were FINALLY returned to my local Post Office (and a BIG thanks to Rand, my new local Postmaster who's been awesome) who brought them round to me personally.

I know they were (over) insured - but the HASSLES and delays would have been longer and more stressful!

All's well that ends well, I suppose - but yes its been a pain as well the other issues.

On top of that I was let down REALLY BADLY by the first round of 3D printing (from another company that promised me fast and great quality) which is why my ETA for shipping was so fast initially because I based it on their timeline. It took them FAR longer than they promised, and when the prints FINALLY came through the quality was not (and I mean NOT AT ALL) as promised - rough, so much so some of the detailing was obscured - and actually malformed in places (elements were "twisted" for want of a better word).

Luckily I found a new guy (overseas but still in the EU) who's printing quality is much better the samples he did are just undercoated white (if you've seen the pictures of the New Defenders you already know that), I think everyone can see how good JUST WHITE undercoat looks. The First wave is with me now - and they are gorgeous. The second wave is being printed now (the Christmas shutdown is a pain too LoL).

So please do not worry, I'm not a fly by night operation (Nexus is in its Fourth year now) and I have readily contacted via Email, Phone, and Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Doctor.Warlock

We're working feverishly to get things rolling as fast as possible it's STILL going to be faster than a Kickstarter LoL!

Oh, and the Red Sector Crew is really "Limited Edition" now too - so if you did pre-order it you are lucky, because of a Cease and Desist Order from Grant Naylor Productions - they will not be available in the future.

I always find that kind of "grassing up" quite annoying. You wouldn't be impacting sales of the (currently non-existant) "official" minis now or in the future. Obviously once they know Grant Naylor have some impetus to make sure they take out any perceived IP challenge but there's someone out there who has flagged it up to them.

Personally I'd rather that someone had a go at Black Tree and their infinite final stocks of Dr Who minis now that Warlord are actually paying for the licence.

I couldn't agree more - were there already a licensed range, I wouldn't have even considered producing them - the letter commented on their "accuracy" though - which was kind of a compliment :D

Was there a "grass" involved though?

It's worth noting that the BBC is now aware of such products in this industry - see Crooked Dice and the not-Dr Who range.

It doesn't take huge leaps of faith to consider that having been brought to their attention they are now swinging the old sensors over the industry.

I don't see how people can be "upset" or "annoyed" it is what it is. The folk that produce these miniatures do so for the love of the original source influences. People buy them for the same reason. The companies that own the franchise show themselves also cherish them. So it is relatively inevitable that these sort of instances will occur.

For me, everyone should be aware of the risk, from producers of the models through to the buyers. That's why it's best to buy them if you like them / want them because you can never know when that sweeping eye will fall upon such a range and C&D it.

This isn't meant as a diss to any miniatures or their quality, just underline the reality of this part of the industry and the risks it takes.

As I understand it there was no official contact with Crooked Dice regarding the not Who minis though Heresy did have some form of letter, though I don't know from Who precisely.. Why they've not nuked Black Tree I have no idea.

I think all the IP preventions I'm aware of were tip offs from gamers. Eureka Chaos Weasels and Apes were IIRC victims of gamer IP crusaders.

First, the C&D was from Grant Naylor Productions and not the BBC - I doubt if they have enough staff on hand to go out looking for specific copyright infringements, thats a full time job in itself - even the BBC rely on Word of Mouth for the most part.

When I rang them and asked directly they were willing to admit the Red Sector Miniatures HAD been reported to them, and that it came from a "Professional Source".

They wouldn't clarify any further sadly.

I wasn't suggesting this was by the BBC, more that the BBC are clearly aware of this arena.

It also wouldn't be a full time job would it? I'm also pretty sure that the BBC do have a legal team under which this sort of thing may fall, so whilst they may not be looking ALL of the time, they may well do from time to time.

If the leak to the Naylor etc came from a "professional source" then it's unlikely to be a gamer. Which for all we know, could be someone at the BBC for example. Again, not saying it was.

And as I have said, I'm not calling anyone names or criticising people or their product or business model here. Just a bit surprised that people are annoyed with anyone or angry etc when this is a specific risk that would have been foreseen from the start.

The bit about the BBC was more a suggestion that such bodies are becoming more aware of such an industry that appears to be relating a lot more to tabletop games and boardgames now than it has done in the past.

LoL!

But surely a "professional source" could just be as likely be someone in the gaming industry - I'm not saying it was, but its no less of an assumption.

In the case of other companies doing "inspired by" miniatures - names have come to light in the long term, so we shall see what we shall see . . . .

They FINALLY turned up at the Sorting office in Lincoln, nowhere near Ranby (the casters home town) although that's still in Lincolnshire.

They were FINALLY returned to my local Post Office (and a BIG thanks to Rand, my new local Postmaster who's been awesome) who brought them round to me personally.

I know they were (over) insured - but the HASSLES and delays would have been longer and more stressful!

MEGA UPDATE I "The Long and Winding Road"

IT'S ALIVE!

We are FINALLY seeing the light!

AND NOW (funnily enough), I understand what Companies that do Kickstarters go through now - whilst my efforts with my Retro-Booster are piddly compared to the "big guys" - I've learned a LOT!

The biggest lesson being, when you have issues/delays over half a dozen miniatures its a hassle - when you have issues/delays over a few dozen miniatures, its not something like eight times the hassle - its more like EIGHT HUNDRED times the hassle.

The delays began when the Royal Mail actually LOST the first lot of Greens (even though they were sent Special Delivery - and insured for £2500) that were sent for casting.

They FINALLY turned up at the Sorting office in Lincoln, nowhere near Ranby (my casters home town) although that's still in Lincolnshire.

They were FINALLY returned to my local Post Office (and a BIG thanks to Rand, my new local Postmaster who's been awesome) who  brought them round to me personally.

I know they were (over) insured - but the HASSLES and delays would have been longer and more stressful!

All's well that ends well, I suppose - but yes its been a pain ON TOP of the other issues.

Next I was let down BADLY by the first round of 3D printing (from another company that promised me fast and great quality) which is why my ETA for shipping was so fast initially because I based it on their timeline.

They fu**ed up . . . . and I mean fu**ed up BADLY. . ..

It took them twice as long as they promised, and when the prints FINALLY came through the quality was not (and I mean NOT AT ALL) as promised - rough, so much so some of the detailing was obscured - and actually malformed in places (elements were "twisted" for want of a better word).

Luckily I found a new guy (overseas) who's printing quality is much MUCH better the samples he did are just undercoated white (please see the very rough attached picture of the "New Defenders"), I think you can see how good JUST WHITE undercoat looks. The First wave is with me now - and they are gorgeous.

Please find attached pictures of the prepped models of Charley, Felix, and N.O.R.M. (with three optional personalities) I think you will agree they really are fantastic - printed to 16 micron layers (rather than the industry standard of 25-29 microns) because I want the best for you guys.

Replacement Printing is ongoing (Future Force is next) but we've encountered minor issues with Three of the Red Sector Crew as well (and to be frank I think the Splutter Bots need work thickening up their "arms" too).

(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Bgz1qmuoBxo/WMERyF5VGEI/AAAAAAAABvU/JMTNPLgwTHgoP7d8LAb9mDyL5YYFh0dYgCLcB/s320/010203.jpg)

A few more adjustments had to be made to Aunt Petunia (sorted with a bracing bar between the pigtail and shoulder), Wildfire (the Guns details are just way too fine), and Barrys pen and clip board proved too vulnerable even to cast in resin - personally I think the new poses are much better, the new Rimmer actually LOOKS Arrogant.

What have I learned from all this (and this is without the fiasco with the Post Office - which is HORRIFYING but I will share with anyone interested by PM if they are truly interested) -

1 - People can't work as fast as myself or Carl can (and even Carl has admitted he cannot keep up with me a couple of times) especially 3D printing guys.

2 - I give people too much credit, just because others recommend their services doesn't mean their work is "guaranteed" to be good or fast.

3 - I need to take over my own production at some point (which I think everyone knows is a given really) if only to give me more control.

4 - Never forget to Factor in people having real lives! People have had real world issues, plus I've been ill, Lindas been ill, Casters have had problems too! Utter UTTER nightmare!

We've lost more than 10 weeks in all, and thats currently how far we are behind (sorry guys, I hate letting people down even when I'VE been let down to begin with) - BUT its still going to be faster than a Kickstarter LoL! (Carl and Dave can back me up there LMAO)!

MEGA UPDATE II INCOMING!

To ignore a cease and desist order if you don't have the money to contest a law case looks reckless.

To do so and tell the world on a public forum that you are doing so looks like a death wish.

Since everyone who has made an advance order from you would lose if you are sued out of business, please be more circumspect, Van Helsing, at least until you have fulfilled those orders.

I wanted my money back.
He wanted to notify to me weeks ago.
I only had the opportunity to confront him in public.

I'm sorry I make my problem public.
But the mistake lies with him.
He only wants to put right

He is unreliable and I do not want to have anything to do with him anymore.

Quote from: Nexus Miniatures Facebook page
RIGHT MOVING FORWARD!

Now the Mrs is recovering from her surgery (anyone who wants to see real world horrific pictures, please PM me LoL), and everyones health seems on the mend (but enough of shitty real life LoL).

6-8 weeks now at the outside before we start fulfilling the Red Sector Deals - a HUGE thanks to everyones patience and support over frankly what has been the crappiest of crap last few months.

For everyone who supported (and waited) there will be a surprise in their future - so watch out for news of that.

ON A DIFFERENT NOTE - the Webstores gone a little catawampus, the search function doesn't seem to want to connect - and the Red Sector pre-order section has re-appeared. This has been reported, and is only temporary (or so my Webmaster claims).

Once we start on the shipping, I shall be looking at getting more 3D prints done - but these will be in hand this time before any form of ordering system for the new Models will be put in place - so I can avoid ridiculous f**k ups and delays in the future!

So what's happening with the Red Sector Clean-Up Crew then?

Any update?

I got this in response to an email I sent.

"I apologise for it being an inordinate amount of time, but we are really close now.

The money has been paid out to the Sculptor, the 3D Printer (twice), and now the Caster - not to mention legal fees over the C&D order. And just to assure you we aren't trying anything on, no one gets rich charging just £4-ish a miniature these days I can tell you.

These have been actual real world problems - what with the Cease and Desist order over the (Not) Red Dwarf Miniatures and the Wifes surgery (and my own stays in Hospital - don't worry, scare over now - just another scan to make sure in a couple of weeks time), not to mention being let down/ripped off by a 3D Printing service. I have to agree it has been a silly amount of time.

Things ARE now with the Caster (the reason why they've been removed from the webstore - no more pre-orders or addons, as we got ecwid to "reset" it all for us), with the conventional sculpts being Cast up first, then the (Not) Dwarfers (there was reticence on behalf of the Caster there, but as no more will be sold he finally relented and agreed to cast them as private commission).

I must point out, the (Not) Dwarfers will never be available again - and Grant/Naylor productions have assured me they actually have no interest in licensing wargaming miniatures either. So other than people who've purchased multiple purchases for the purpose of scalping their spares on ebay, thats all she wrote. Likewise with the Future Force (BotP) part of the range, they are proving problematic to cast up - so they are likely to change for any future production, when the initial production run 'runs out' they will no longer be available in the current form.

Some of the range (like the Strangers) WILL be expanded upon, adding more characters and alternate "cosplay" poses of the Kids.

It won't be much longer now I assure you - any further releases (and trust me, theres a backlog of sculpts that I obviously wouldnt even think of releasing till these were done and dusted) will be in smaller "bite sized" releases - easy to managed when/if things go wrong (and trust me THINGS WENT WRONG).

Smaller more controlable releases in the future I am afraid - its the only way forward."

I suspect it will be a while yet before some get minis they pledged for.

Drew/Nexus made play on running something that wouldn't be late because it is not a Kickstarter. Kickstarters are not always late, and they are not late because they are Kickstarters - those that are late are often due to unanticipated problems, even happy ones such as over-funding success.

Either way, I imagine Drew/Nexus has now realised that crowd funding is not the issue, it is production etc. where problems lie. However, the lack of information seems quite telling. The last Nexus Facebook page (not group) update was June 7th with relation to production, which suggested 6-8 weeks for delivery which seems to have been missed. Interestingly there was a comment on a Nexus Facebook post 3 days ago by someone commenting on the wait and there has yet to be an answer.

Take this as you wish: I messaged him directly on FB at the beginning of August and I got a response quickly. He said the first wave is at the casters and he was prepping an announcement/pictures. Apparently the plan is to cast/release things in waves. Conventional Sculpts - First, Red Sector - Second, Future Force - Third and Everything else - Fourth. But as you know nothing has been posted in the 2 months since that response.

He stated on June 7th:

That statement re: Red Sector essentially went into August, which is around the time you contacted Nexus I guess?

Customers could receive stuff next week, maybe next month, or it could be much longer. I have my suspicions that those third and fourth waves may not make it this year, but my guess may be way wide, just a hunch I have.

Dug this out for irony:

We've decided to make the Sharp Distinction Retro-Booster much more simple, with a set range of Miniatures to pre-order over a slightly longer period of time - with no Unlocks to stretch for.

All the items here are up for Pre-Order as part of the latest "Retro-Booster" Promotion, estimated Shipping is the first quarter 2017 (so again much faster than a Kickstarter).

On the Nexus Facebook page a guy asked about his pre-order and was told he was getting an update via email; as a follow on I asked if all pre-orders were getting an individual update email (since Nexus have not been updating their page with concrete information about pre-orders in recent) and after I did that, the post those comments were attached to was quickly deleted.

Sorry, I didn't mean to cause offence, no insult or harm intended. :)

I was making a joke about the length of time, not directed at anyone - my order was also placed last year (Nov 22, 2016), so it has been a long wait with little in the way of meaningful update in most of that time.

Given that I am banned/blocked from every Facebook group the Nexus creator controls, by him, I would be surprised if I actually get my order.

I ordered 1 not James Bond miniature from this site a year or two ago. It never showed up despite me sending several emails enquiring what happened (nor did I get a response).

Only a few pounds so I eventually just wrote it off.

Make of that what you will.

A friend ordered some Nexus minis a couple of years ago, took three or four emails to finally get his goods with claims from Drew/Nexus of them already being posted which seems to keep happening.

I had this exact same expeirence. He would respond to emails saying the models were sent and he would send them again.  I believe it was the third or fourth "attempt" that finally got them to arrive.  Too bad.  He has some things I would like, but I will never order again.

Bond Miniatures??

Well, what I wanted was bond in his tactical turtle neck, as seen here:-

(http://i0.wp.com/gentsamongmen.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/roger-moore.jpg?fit=634%2C954)

(http://media.gq.com/photos/5583ca1909f0bee56442531f/master/w_806/style-blogs-the-gq-eye-bondturtleneck_0003_Screen%20Shot%202015-03-17%20at%201.42.49%20PM.jpg)

I thought that would make more practical outfit for him to wear when leading assaults on secret volcano lairs accompanied by SAS guys or Ninjas than the classic dinner jacket.

Now the tactleneck look was, er, Inspired by Steve McQueen in Bullitt, so I ended up getting a fig of him from rogue miniatures:-

That figure, at least, arrived promptly. 10/10 would order again.

I just want to echo this - I have only placed one Rogue order so far, but they were great value, and very prompt in delivery - I will very happily use Rogue again. :)

It's worth noting that he has several facebook groups for various other manufacturers games as well. I am going to leave the groups I am in that he leads.

One of which - The Walking Dead Clubhouse, has suddenly changed to include Hellboy as well, which isn't even near close to release yet having only just funded on kickstarter.

I feel very uncomfortable seeing a person that owes so much cozying up to manufacturers in such a way without having contacted those he owes orders/refunds to.

Drew set up the 7TV Action Facebook fan group many years ago. I contacted him a few weeks ago to ask for a banned member to be reinstated. After a two message exchange over the space of about five minutes, he archived the group and blocked me from messaging him. Very peculiar.

However, the upside was that fans started a new group and saw a real resurgence in members and activity - so no loss!

 I do hope folks eventually get their goods or money back.

It is another and good question.

Notably, except for the Red Dwarf stuff, all the previous pre-order stuff that was digitally sculpted is still in pre-order, while the traditional sculpts and Red Dwarf crew have seemingly been cast; it looks like this is the third pre-order on some minis, and therefore it could be speculated that sales of one lot are to fund the printing of the stuff that has been out to pre-order twice already, starting 21 months ago, yet is still not produced (and has been paid for by some customers).

On further news Nexus Miniatures has changed, this is forward planning really (and down to a little legal advice, and yes - it is kind of linked to the hassles I've had).
Y.F.T. Designs (short for Yesterdays Future Today), will still be producing rad miniatures (and rules, game profiles, and fiction) and Nexus Miniatures still exists, but as a specific part of Y.F.T. Designs ranges.

So it's still the same guy.
