Those are great.. Will they be available outside of the Kickstarter as timing is bad for me.

They have a real John Blanche early Rogue Trader vibe too. I really like them. Tempting!

I like the concept art and the sculpts look very well executed, but I can't get past that bone the one guy's holding.  It's just ridiculously huge - not sure even a horse would have a thigh bone that big, and certainly nothing even vaguely human sized.  Just throw all the rest of it off to me, it feels so out of scale.  And that's a shame, because the rest is so good.


For me it's his right arm...it seems too long. I think he can scratch his knee while standing straight!
But otherwise fantastic sculpts.
What use was time to those who'd soon achieve Digital Immortality?

That's exactly what attracted me to Moritz's artwork.  8)

They are suitably weird, not too much tat which will make them easier to paint.

Hi everyone, thanks again for the continued support! I thought Id share some more images to of the painted figures. I had a lot of fun with my iPhone and some free apps when I made these images! The photos were taken before I varnished the figures, I loved the richness of the colours at this point. I cant wait to see what paint schemes all of you come up with once you receive your figures.

Hi everyone, we appear to still be thundering along! I cant believe how successful this campaign has become, thanks so much to everyone involved. Ive been having more fun with apps so I thought Id share some detail pics of the figures as you will receive them. Im very happy with the castings, theyre on par with every good quality casting Ive ever bought, minimal mouldlines and filling needed before painting and all the little details captured perfectly! Im really looking forward to receiving a big parcel of castings once were funded so I can forward them all off around the world!

Dammit! I've been trying so hard to slow down the rate it which my lead pile is growing*, and then you start offering lovely characterful minis on KS, curse your black heart  ;) .  Oh well, I guess 3 more won't hurt...

* If I'm honest with myself, that's a lie.  I'd like to slow down the rate, but seem to have trouble actually enacting that intent.

These are so great and so creepy that I almost failed to pledge. But I did.
