Maelstrom Games have posted previews of two new additions to their BaneLords fantasy range.



From their announcement:
We were going to release four BaneLords in October, but what we didn’t realise is that practically all of France (and consequently her sculptors, it seems – or at least, the ones that we contract) is on holiday. Thus, work has proved a little slow and if we had released all four this month, we’d have none for you in November. Ahh, the logistical problems inherent in producing miniatures…

Maelstrom Games have posted a preview of their new BaneBeast release, Conjunct XIII. Conjunct XIII From their announcement:
The madness that lies within the minds of the Ysians, and in particular their physicians, can be readily seen in the bizarre form of Conjunct XIII. This grotesque vivicoct of krokodile, wyrm, jötunn and an as-yet unidentified creature has proved to be a savage, ignoble brute, capable of smashing shieldwalls apart by sheer force and destroying much larger enemies due simply to its ferocity. Such is Conjunct XIII’s reputation, despite its obvious locomotive limitations, that few levies will stand upon sighting it and most shudder at facing such an unnatural creature, a wrong-beast that simply should not exist, something that the Ysians are exploiting further with more living concoctions, more insane creatures stitched together for use in their man-starved armies. These take many and extraordinary form, joined by methods abhorred by the sane to create beasts that crawl or walk or fly from the newly-dead or the living; for Conjunct XIII, by its very name, is but one of many, and although it is the most infamous of all the Ysian’s vivicocts it is certainly not the only preternatural creature in their armoury.

Maelstrom Games have previewed the next addition to their Banebeasts fantasy range - Ophius, the Gorgon Lord. Ophius, the Gorgon Lord From their announcement:
We’ve been extremely lucky so far, in producing our very own miniatures, to be working with some of the finest artists, sculptors and painters in the business, and we think that what we have produced so far is pretty damn good, if we say so ourselves. Our latest BaneBeast, though, is (in our not so humble opinion) something that is up there with the finest miniatures around. Something that, when you hold it in your hands, is not just a miniature – it’s art, in the truest sense of the word. We are extremely proud to reveal that Ophius, Gorgon Lord, is our BaneBeast for September. Released on the 3rd September and available to pre-order. Don't forget we have a 20% off RRP voucher running at the mo on all new ranges added to our store in 2011 enter New-2011 at checkout and you can claim a 20% discount on the RRP plus we always ship all orders over £10 free worldwide!

Maelstrom Games have posted previews of two new figures from their Banelords fantasy miniature range.



From their announcement:
This month we're releasing 2 BaneLords. Twice the awesomesauce! The first of the 2 sees our regular BaneBeast sculptor Allan Carrasco turn his hands to our BaneLords range with the Troll Jarl and the second of the two sees our first release sculpted by none other than JAG himself.

Maelstrom Games have posted a preview of the latest figure in their BaneBeast range - Flint-Fang. Flint-Fang From their announcement:
The meat-melders of the Under-Vermin, chained to their flesh-slabs and their slice-knives and driven to produce ever more terrifying beasts of war for their masters, have surpassed even their own depraved expectations with Flint-Fang. Destined to be one of the Kill-Things, one of those murderous beasts that are unleashed upon the enemies of their warlords for both sport and war, Flint-Fang is a terrifying blend of verminous flesh built for strength and ferocity, grown to many times its original size and driven to insanity and bloodlust by its goader-cagers. Chained in a dank, filthy cave within the Infernal Pits that can barely contain its bulk and starved before it is released into battle, Flint-Fang is both a pet and a fortune to Blunt-Claw, the warlord that owns it, for the terrifying spectacle of the Blood-Pit is dominated by the savage fury of his beast and few other warlords dare to challenge his supremacy with Kill-Things of their own – for, even apart from the Blood-Pit and their owner’s reputations, the Kill-Things are needed, ever needed, by the armies of the Great Vermin in his wars against the above-men, and Flint-Fang will bring them death and carnage as they have never seen before.

Maelstrom Games are now accepting pre-orders for the Alassar BaneLord miniature. Alassar BaneLord From their announcement:
The tale of Alassar Ælfenden is a long and unfinished one. He has lived for a thousand years and will live for another thousand, so it is said, for his skill in battle is unmatched and his spirit will never yield. He has served his enclave since he was a youth, a mere stripling of an Ælf, and in that time he has fought the enemies of his people without fear or respite. So valiant is he that the Sun Kings themselves have paid homage to his tale, for to bear the Dragon Standard is the highest honour they could ever bestow. To be entrusted with such an ancient treasure, an artifact of the Ever Living Ones that has been borne through the history of the White Ælves from antiquity, is recognition of Alassar’s integrity and strength, his noble lineage and his implacable leadership, for all know none other could take to the field of battle with his surety and conviction.

Maelstrom Games are now accepting pre-orders for the Banebeast Ulmons, Tarask of Var. Ulmons, Tarask of Var From their announcement:
After the frenetic activity in April, the month of May has been somewhat serene… at least on the surface. Underneath, we’re like the proverbial swan’s feet, rushing around like headless chickens getting next month’s releases sorted. We’re the huge side of the iceberg, the busy in the bees, the navvies to the railways, and other analogies and metaphors that imply we work very hard on the BaneLegions indeed… as do our small army of artists, sculptors and painters, of course. Enough prattling from the prattler-in-chief – get your eyeballs around our latest BaneBeast, for he is quite superb and very different to what we have produced so far. From yet another concept by the simply awesome Stefan Kopinski, yet another ex-Rackham sculptor in the supremely-talented shape of Stéphane Nguyen van Gioi has brought Ulmons to life and yet another Golden Demon award winner – Raffaele Picca – has painted him. We absolutely love what Raffaele has done with our Tarask, for it evokes all manner of reptilian beastie and really brings some colour to what could have been rather drab. In short, all three have done a superb job on the “Big One” Available for pre-order here at 10% off RRP and free shipping worldwide

Maelstrom Games have posted photos of a painted sample of their Kaastaruk BaneLord miniature. painted Kaastaruk From their announcement:
Here at BaneLegions Towers we are quite often amazed by the artistry shown by the sculptors, painters and artists we use for our miniatures but it is true to say that when we saw Sébastien Picque’s work on our latest BaneLord – Kaastaruk, Skull-Bearer of the Tarvax – our jaws simply dropped, which meant we looked like dribbling fools for a time. Well, more so than usual, anyway. Regardless of our reaction, we believe you will be stunned by his amazing paintjob too, for no other reaction could do it justice. There are so many details that we could talk about – from the bloody maw to the glowing runes to the grubby standard – and every time we look at it, we find more. That’s a good indication of how good Benoît Cosse’s sculpt is, too, for Sébastien is only painting what is there. Following on from that, Benoît is only sculpting what Stefan Kopinski drew on the concept art. So backslaps all round, artisty people. Of course, the Baalor glyph on the standard looks (intentionally) exactly like a dirty great Tarvax has used his fat, stubby sausage fingers to daub it on. That’s exactly what happened, you see… Enough from us. Have a look at some miniature loveliness.

Maelstrom Games is now accepting pre-orders for the BaneBeast Kemorannac figureBaneBeast Kemorannac. From their announcement:
In the bleak lands of the Oghurithne where the mountains scrape the sky live many creatures of evil temperament but none evince more terror and revulsion than the savage, bestial Oghurüc, long-legged giants of hoof and horn that legend tells were created to protect the meeting places of the gods, the oghu circles that puncture the landscapes of the bitter north. Kermorannac is one such, an Oghurüc from myth that lives alone amongst the highest peaks and the darkest caverns of Moreb, marking his territory with the bodies of those that wander too close to the ancient monuments in stone within his realm. His purpose is clear even to those who know nothing of these lands, for whilst the gods may have forsaken the oghu circles the Oghurithne and, indeed, the Oghur have not, and they dare not make their pleas to a forgotten pantheon without appeasing their bestial kin beforehand lest they fall prey to the savage retribution that defilers deserve

Maelstrom Games have posted a preview of a new BaneLord release - Kaastaruk of the Tarvax. Kaastaruk of the Tarvax From their announcement:
Kaastaruk is marked well in the tales of the Tarvax for he is a skull-bearer, a carrier of his Tain’s kill-trophy and always at the forefront of battle, roaring his hatred of the weakling scions of man as he slaughters them with broad strokes of his ax, a violent symbol of the power inherent in the black armour and white eye of Baalor. Like all Tarvax, Kaastaruk is a loathsome joining of bull and man with the worst qualities of both, a foul temperament and even fouler intent, a bellowing murderer with a rage none can match, and his presence amongst the armies of Baalor inspires such beasts to even greater fury, providing a powerful, savage edge in the further subjugation of the lands the Destroyer does not already rule. Kaastaruk and Baalor’s other abominations, his other degenerate hybrids that issue from Fomor and beast, his insults to Danu herself, are already all but unstoppable – and his work is not done yet.

Maelstrom Games have posted photos of a painted versions of the Euryalia Queen of Ker-Ys figure. Photos may be NSFW. From their announcement:
Phew! What a whirlwind the weekend of Salute 2011 was. We’re still recovering from it all to be honest, not least because of the travelling… but we’re probably still tired from all the beer we consumed. Regardless, the event itself was a day to remember as it was our first Salute show as a trader, and we were humbly astonished by the amount of people coming to see our beautiful miniatures, buying them, taking pictures of them and asking so many questions about them. We managed to have a good look around ourselves and, as ever, it’s a brilliant showcase for this incredible hobby of ours. We’ll be there next year. On the Sunday we motored on down to the South Coast GT in Portsmouth to again show off our miniatures, but this time to one of the largest tournaments on the calendar. Thanks must go to the Pompey boys for their hospitality. More thanks must of course go to the Salute 2011 team, all of our staff who worked so hard over the weekend, the superb Stefan Kopinski – who joined us on our stand at Salute to show off his amazing concept art and answer many questions from inquiring showgoers – and the simply immense (in every sense of the word) Ben Komets, who brought the lovely painted Euryalia with him from Germany. You can see the fruits of his labours below, and – to be frank – we think this is Ben’s best work for us yet.

Erec One-ArmMaelstrom Games have posted a preview of the Erec One-Arm, Dwarf of Càrn Corm figure that will be released a part of their Banelords fantasy miniature range. From their announcement:
We’re a day late with our Monday BaneLords update, for which we can only apologise, but the wait was worth it as we believe the last revelation of the initial six BaneLords that will be available at Salute 2011 is the best of the lot! Take a bow, Erec One-Arm, Dwarf of Càrn Corm – you are a cracking little miniature who is sure to grace many a tabletop or collection in the near future! Thanks must be given to our lovely concept artist Stefan Kopinski, as always, and the superb Mohamed Aït-Mehdi who has put sculpting tool to sculpting material to create his very first BaneLord. A veteran of many miniatures, Mohand (as he is known around the world) has worked on most of the Eden range for Taban Miniatures as well as much more for other companies. We hope to be utilising his skills again very soon, but for now enjoy his work on our Erec! Erec can be pre-ordered right now from the Maelstrom Games webstore, and you can of course grab him before his official release date of the 7th of May 2011 from our stand at Salute 2011. Which is less than two weeks away. Eeeek!

Euryalia, Queen of Ker-YsMaelstrom Games have posted a preview of the Euryalia, Queen of Ker-Ys figure for the Banelords fantasy range. Possibly NSFW From their announcement:
Here we are again with another momentous day for the BaneBeasts – not one incredible monstrous miniature but two to reveal, all in one day. How amazing. The first of the two BaneBeasts released in May is something incredibly special because we’ve been dying to get her into the pubic – errrm, I mean public – eye, as it were, before now; but no, the vagaries of logistics and the Mansfield-Cromford continuum meant that we had to wait, and it has been quite a painful wait I can tell you. Not because we’re sitting uncomfortably, mind – it’s just that Euryalia has been a pleasure to work with from start to finish, right from our original concept through to Stefan Kopinski’s art and, in the end, to Allan Carrasco’s quite stunning sculpt; it really is as amazing in the resin as it is on screen, and we’ve waited too long to reveal her.

Again a miniature from the superb Stéphane Simon, Ulric the Defiler is ready to take the fight to your enemies with a nasty attitude and a very large ax, although we don’t think he’s compensating for anything… Ulric can be pre-ordered right now on the Maelstrom Games webstore, but you will be able to buy him at Salute 2011 from our stand before the actual release date of the 7th of May.
