Woo! Friday! Woo!
Most of my friends are talking about Star Wars. I've not seen it yet. Perhaps sometime soon. But it is cool to see how integrated into the mainstream our "geeky" culture has become. Now we don't have to be shy and reluctant to talk about the things we love. We can just be who we want to be, which is pretty awesome.

Anyway, before we make that grand leap to the weekend, we need to get you some bite-sized stories that we've found over the past couple days.

Today's stories include: New statues from Klukva Miniatures, Pyrkol releases new Acid Templates, New Meg's Girls - White Star squad from MaxMini, and New Previews For Wild West Exodus.

MaxMini showed off a little preview render for Flying Karl.
Not sure if they'll actually print him out and sell him, but I think it'd be pretty cool.

Ok, I know that we are weird sometimes ;) ...

Konrad was resistant to my idea at first , but as soon as he started sculpting it went in a blast :) .

From the update:

While working on exosuit Glen has initially came up with a gargantuan variant, which has been scaled down to create current design. But it is so cool we simply had to keep it as a hero model. Here it is - Leviathan suit.

MaxMini made it to total unlockage over on their Green Alliance Kickstarter campaign. There's still 3 days to go if you want to get in on the action.

From the campaign:

I'd like to thank all participants - awesome to see all the stretch goals unlocked!

We're busy working on those models.
Zuzanna is playing with gen. Smackton concept. She wanted to try a different arm variant. I don't think it would end up as a final option (we think that massive fist / claw will work better) but it is so cool I simply have to share

From the update:

Another unlock - WOW! Goblins certainly looked with envy at large clanking machines their bigger bros operate and after some tinkering with their tanks they have come with a beastie of their own.
This concept has been made by Kerim and certainly his love for all things green (he hast a vast collection of orcs) shows :) .
That's a pretty fun model to make - and possibilities of arms options are endless. Now we need to shorten a list of ideas to the best ones ;) .

You may wonder what can you expect from TheGreenAlliance Kickstarter campaign. In this article I will try to shed some light on the matter.
First of all – expect a whole bunch of fun models :)!
The campaign will be launched through UK site. This means that default currency will be GBP – we have no influence on that. But if you find currency translations a chore fear not – all pledge levels have a clear translation to USD. We've did our best to make it very simple and straightforward.

MaxMini posted a description on the orc & goblin army project that they are currently working on and want to fund with crowdfunding.



Source

From the announcement:

Orcs... lots of them... WW2 US Army gear... YAY!!! At least that were the thoughts that crossed my mind when I thought it is right around time we should work on an army. The thought of lots of models swarming on the table was simply too tempting to resist, especially considering how fun greenskins are to work on. Something of such magnitude comes with challenges though - starting from design phase and ending on funding. The first can be solved with an experience (which luckily we have :D) the 2nd we wish to overcome with your help - by using crowdfunding.

MaxMini previewed this a little while back, but now they've released their Bulletstorm Turret over in their webshop.

The funny thing is that workshop overhaul was the thing that brought this one back to life. We've been shuffling boxes and came across the one with long forgotten goodies. Some parts still needed tweaks, but with the "webstore only" option we knew we can release it. And here it is, back from the abyss ;) .

Sword & Board Games shows off the 3D render for their upcoming Mining Guild Troll. They've also got some news about partnering up with MaxMini.



From the update:

Hi All,

Today we have a lot of news for you.

First we have our new render for the Mining Guild. Our take on a male troll. I think you will agree that he looks pretty nasty. (He’s not actually leaning in the finished model, that’s just the camera angle)

Secondly, we are proud to announce that Sword & Board Games is partnering up with Maxmini. The Maxmini team have been extremely helpful giving us advice regarding 3D printing and will be assisting us in their printing and production. It’s great to know we have a reliable and talented group of people working beside us on our miniatures. You can see some of Maxmini’s work at www.maxmini.eu

Thirdly, for those of you that have been keeping up to date with our news. The poll which asked “What type of material would you like our miniatures to be made out of?”. The results are in. A whopping 73.68% of you voted for our miniatures to be made out of resin.

Also, for those that missed out don't forget to check out the Mining Guild Female Orc posted earlier.

MaxMini shows off a new gobber they've been working on that will be released soon.



From the preview:

I have to admit that in the late 80's and in 90's I've got my share of action movies. Titles like "Rambo", "Predator", "MiA" have comfortably set in my memory. So when a space for a slightly more funky project apeared I've quickly decided to fill it with something that was based on those blasts from the past :) .

When I worked out the guideline Robert made a frame from brass wire with green stuff on top and started building up shapes with FIMO clay. As it is rather small miniature he has been able to do most of the sculpting within a day.

I've decided to put "use best tool for teh job" principle into action and asked Kuba to work on the weapons in Rhino.

Robert could have done it with putty / plasticard but it would take way longer and the results would be less crisp. By combining tools we've been able to complete the task within a day. WHen the 3d prints were ready they were cast in resin and assembled with the gobbo.

And here it is - mean and green (aka Sylvester ;) ) :
