28mm Kappa preview [Tengu Models]
« on: August 06, 2012, 09:22:08 PM »
Here's the first look at some 28mm Kappa figures I'll be releasing in a few weeks. Based on the Kappa of japanese legend I've made these to be a kind of river goblin as much of anything else. I'm working toward releasing more figures so that a decent skirmish force could be put together. There'll be weapon variants, character figs inc shamen types, some models with scavenged samurai armour. For ranged weapons I thinking of going for blowpipes rather than bows.

The first one painted by Einar Olafson! These pics were sent over today and I'm very happy with the pj!



The greens of the first 3 figures. Figs are about 24mm to the top of the head.





Thanks for looking!

These are lovely. I like them on so many different levels it is hard to decide where to begin.  River goblins indeed.  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Pretty neat.

 I have been wanting Japanese mythological miniatures for years, and these are fantastic!

 As soon as I can place an order I will be doing so  :D


 Thank you very much for releasing these minis.

I am with Svennn on these- So many levels indeed.
Now I am trying to find a way to slip/cajole/crowbar them into British folklore for my Strange Aeons project.

Hmm interesting! Maybe a kind of lesser fishman/deepone :)

Here are some new pics of another of the figures painted by Andres.

Its always good to see a new fantasy subject rather than the same old same old, especially when as well executed as this.

WOW! What an awesome set of truly original figures :o Straight to the top of the "simply must have" list.
Please don't release these too quickly though. I need time to come up with some way to pacify the wife first. Some women just don't seem to understand a man's real needs  :D
...and what fresh new hell is this?

Yes almost certainly. Somebody on frothers suggested zombie peasants which I think is a cracking idea!

Now that Einar Olafson has finished the third figure I can post a group shot of all three! Thanks Andres



and here is a scale pic of some of the figure variants along side some samurai types



thanks for the comments!

Very cool Kappa!
