Raining Frogs Garage brings you their latest mini, the Barbarian Dude.

From the release:

After so long I finally manage to finish a new personal project, a big and bad barbarian dude!
It’s freely inspired to the art of the amazing Simon Bisley as well as to the old good Ilyad barbarians sculpted by “le dieux” Jacques Alexandre Gillois.

It’s a 32mm “heroic” scale model (same as GW characters), but since it’s meant to be a very big guy it’s almost 40mm at the top of his head.
Scuplted out of Fimo and Magic Sculp.

If you are interested you can find a Limited Editon run of resin casts on the Online Store

I hope you’ll enjoy

    Quite nice.

    It is. Wanting to use my miniatures for gaming however, I have really come to hate resin, even ‘high quality’ resin. Yes, it will paint up beautifully. But these things are too fragile for regular handling, so as much as I abolutely LOVE it, I’ll pass.

    Also, what is the deal with Warmachine bases (round skirmishers with lips) everywhere? Sure, if this were going to be used for a game that used those bases, I could understand. But almost every fantasy game I know uses squares, and if you want it for display, you are going to generally mount it on an actually nicer base anyway. Well, I guess they have to have it stand on something….

    If I were them, I’d throw a square base into the packet for customers.

      I doubt that model is that fragile. Its not like his weapon is swinging in the breeze and will break off.

      I will take round base anyday of the week. Much more practical for RPG with 1″ squares like Dungeons and Dragons.

      • KelRiever

        I’m just saying in this day and age, bases cost nearly nothing. It doesn’t hurt to have a square with the round. And if you want to replace your average warcaster with this figure, you can still go right ahead.

        By the way, squares work on, you know square grids too…

          Every fantasy game? Pretty much only large battle games with big formations use them, and the only recent fantasy game I’m aware of which uses squares is Mantic’s KOW. Even Confrontation 4.0 which was a mass battle game converted to round bases. All of the dozens of fantasy games released in the past few years has been on round bases. War of the Ring also uses round bases but manages it with trays.

          One reason I like (and probably many modellers) the warmachine style bases is that it’s much easier to fill the terrain basin than on a flat base. But the size is a bit large and clunky that’s for sure.

          You’re right that’s it’s almost inconsequential in cost to include both bases, but that presents a problem if people don’t use the same base type when playing in an organized competitive manner.

      • KelRiever

        Clearly I have crossed the line with the base thing here 😉 Seriously, it isn’t nearly as big a deal as I meant it to be. But, you know, um, all right for talking bases!

        Yes, I have a million bases too. And sure, I said Fantasy games I KNOW. Big difference from chopping short that sentence, mkay? I forgot about Confragnarok, but probably because I think that game totally sucks. It still isn’t played with lipped circulars by the way.

        For real, though, just throw a square base in for gamers….who like to play with beautiful but super breakable resin….

      The model isn’t sold with a base, you have to use your own and can use any type you want.

      I don’t know about you but I have a couple of shoe-boxes full of bases going all the way back to the mid 80’s, I can provide my own.

  • Mahrdol

    I will be picking this up. It has a “Death Dealer” feel to it. Very nice.
