Guts ‘N’ Gears posts up a new video review of the Celestial Fulcrum by Privateer Press (for their Hordes line).
This is such a cool model, props to the sculptor on this one. I’d have gone crazy cutting all those runes into the master!
I think the base looks like pure *ss. So I can’t say I feel the same way…
How so? It looks like rocks to me, which is what they are supposed to be.
I think its a horrible base. The idea of angling the support is good. The idea of floating rocks is fine. But the base looks terrible, and that’s fine if it looks okay to you. To me, it looks like a carved dog dish.
Anyway, harsh, I know, but whatever. Its jmo. You like it if you want.
I don’t see how you get “dog dish” out of that.
According to the rules it creates a force field that pushes the rocks around it and I think the artist captured that just fine, and they actually look like rocks, not just carved pink foam.
Yeah, I get more of an ashtray feel myself.
So basically you guys are doing the PP version of “GW Hate”.
Kind of, kind of not. Its just being critical where it seems fit. ‘Hate’ is just hating no matter what. This isn’t the case here. The fulcrum itself looks fine. The dog dish is horrible. There’s a lot more inconsistency in PPS sculpts because they farm out to different scultors, it seems. Some look fine. Others, bleh.
Happens to GW too. Just because I hate their business model doesn’t mean I think Skullvane Manse isn’t completely awesome. It doesn’t make you a hater if you dislike certain things from a company, or a fanboi if you like certain things. That’s probably obvious, but it seems to be forgotten, often.
I like it because the sculptor was actually able to make it look like rocks, not just pink foam covered in textured paint like many other sculpts I’ve seen.
For a while I thought he actually used rocks for the base, till I saw greens for it on his DA profile.
