Fantasy Warr Quickstart Rules and Starter Sets Available From Gary Hunt Miniatures and Zombiesmith

You know me. I’m very much a “try before you buy” sort of gamer. So when I hear about a set of rules being put up online for free from a company, I highly respect that move. It lets me, a consumer, check out and see what I’m getting into before I take any sort of monetary plunge. Well, ZombieSmith and Gary Hunt Miniatures have posted up the free quickstart PDF for their Beestwars miniatures system they’re working on.

Moongha Invader Sculpts previewed by Gary Hunt Miniatures

Gary Hunt Miniatures is previewing their Moongha Invader miniatures they’ve just sent out to get molded.


From the preview:

This year has gone by in the blink of an eye! It was great to see my work on the Hobbit and Elysium and I’ve been kept busy on many projects at Weta including some more collectables: the Hobbit DVD special edition sculpt of Gollum and Bilbo (which just released on Amazon) and a few to be announced soon. A lot of my work recently has moved over to the digital dark side and is as rewarding as physical sculpting (But I haven’t given that up)

Out of Weta Workshop my own range of miniatures had to take a backseat while I was busy sculpting the characters for an awesome board game that you may have heard of : Moongha Invaders by Treefrog games. The job was a little too large for me to do outside of Weta time so I shared it with a talented sculptor and friend, Anton Ducrot from Flytrap Factory. The designs from Tim Huesken were very quirky and we had so much fun sculpting them. The figures are being injection moulded in China. Look forward to seeing them with the game itself…

I’ll post some more pics of individual Moonghas and the Female Hero at a later date. I’ll also be posting pics of my own range that I didn’t find time to share with Tmp..
All the best, Gary.

4 new releases and a black Dragon release for the Hobbit Artizan Market

Gary Hunt Miniatures has several new releases they’ve got in the works that’ll be ready for the premier of the Hobbit.

From the update:

4 new packs of Clovis Minotaurs and Satyr have been released on my website and a Black Dragon is in the casting process right now.
The packs are as follows: Minotaur Standard bearer, Minotaur Champion, Leper Satyr Shaman and 2 Satyr warriors.

The 2 new Minotaurs have grown in stature and stand between 45-49mm tall. The standard itself is 112mm to the top.
These are multi part kits (the standard bearer comes in 6 parts) so you’ll be able to swap heads etc just like the smaller minotaurs and beastmen I’ve released previously.

The Clovis Satyr are approx 33mm tall and have seprate weapon hands.

The Black Dragon is pretty much the same size as my previously released Fire Drake but with wings out-stretched.
(see fire drake pop up image, compared to 28mm Zombie).
8 part kit)

I’ll be releasing assembled pewter versions of them on my stall at the Hobbit Artizan market for the Hobbit Premier in Wellington NZ, 24th-28th Nov

New Minotaurs and Satyr previews from Gary Hunt Miniatures

From the update:

More Clovis Minotaurs and Satyr are on the way. The 2 new Minotaurs have grown in stature and stand between 45-49mm tall.

The standard itself is 112mm to the top. I haven’t yet worked out a price for this large peice and I’m going to have to re-structure my prices a little.
Yes, unfortunately, starting with the Fantasy Warr.. range I will be upping the prices a bit but still staying very reasonable. So get in and order some bargains before my web manager gets on to it in a week or so…
