The Sardaukar Attack!
« on: May 27, 2022, 07:38:38 AM »


Fistful of lead bigger battles my Dune collection, the Sardaukar broke through and won the scenario as the Freemen and allies tried to stop them. Very much fun and fast great game, the sand worm never arrived...

Thanks!
I hoped if was some "official" range, instead yet more shameless IP theft. :(
They look really cool once painted, though!

Really?
"Not _________” minis have been a thing for decades now from companies big and small. 3d printing just gets than to the table faster. 

Love the minis.  Given more time and budget, Dune is definitely the universe I'd put some effort into gaming

Yeah, really. Before you had a company having a model sculpted, making master moulds and production molds and handling all the logistic. You could save some bucks making a not* miniature, but in general that was a minor move and very few companies became famous making not* miniatures exclusively.

Now the *only* cost is sculpting. And concepts. If you remove the concepts the time-for-miniature is reduced greatly, allows you to seriously cripple original creators. Wanna do not-Sardaukars? Very well, come up with cool new designs that resemble the original and go for it. Something that "could totally work for Sardaukars".
If you're just lazily copying the design, even though the miniature is awesome, you DO deserve a C&D. Considering that the same company is also making Star wars knock-offs, it gets even less simpathy.
EDIT: they're making around 10k per month on Patreon. So no, this is NOT ok.

That said, I agree, it's a perfect universe for wargaming!
