Bad Squiddo Games: Vorschau auf Modelle
Die Dice Bag Lady hat auf Facebook mal wieder einige Previews kommender Modelle gezeigt.
If you know anything about capybaras, you will know they are the most relaxed animals ever. If you use internet lingo you would say “so chill”. Therefore, it totally makes sense that in the not so far future when most of humanity is wiped out, they would be “totally chill” about being armoured up and used as a portable cannon during the skirmishes between survivors that remain. Naturally peaceful animals, they are distracted from their violent repurpose with tasty treats. A standard sized capybara can get through up to three and a half kilos of grass a day, so imagine what these extra large ones can chew on a good day. Grass, as you know, is a precious commodity in the dystopian wasteland, so Capycannons are treated with the utmost respect, worshipped almost like gods. To lose a Capy in combat is a horrid omen.
You too can have a Capycannon! Soon! When the Kickstarter is finished shipping… should be finished this week, so maybe release next week (I have jinxed it now!) I just wanted to show off this lovely paint job by Andrew Taylor. The figure is sculpted by a team up of Jo Brumby and Darren Edwards.
Morgana, sculpted by Phil Hynes, painted by Paul Cubbin. She was previously available in a tiny run of resin which sold out before I could blink, but she is back very soon in metal. No promises, but she should be available with all the Salute megarelease. All the Kickstarters will be shipped by next week, which leaves the casters free to get cracking on some other stuff, as well as restocking a few things that got left behind (SHIELDMAIDEN FIGHTERS BACK IN STOCK BY THE WAY!). I use four different casters to manage it all, so while this caster is now free, the others are pretty much catching fire working so fast to get the Salute releases spun in time. It is truely the most stressful part of the year for everyone!
In the meantime though, you can drool over this! Bloody Cubbin, doing it again with his master brushwork.
Bad Squiddo Games
Coming this Salute… Mrs June. Sculpted by Alan Marsh in a style different to his usual realist (we had a play!) and painted by Paul Cubbin. A rare dip for Bad Squiddo into modern/pulp style gaming, Mrs June will work brilliantly as anything from a civilian standing by, an angry villager, lady of the manor, a spy or perhaps super villain. Is that closed fist going to clobber someone? It’s always the one you suspect last. Good moll too? Lots of possibilities, I like these sorts of figures to be able to cover lots of ground. The pose is great, she could be stomping for good or evil (totally not a ploy to get you to buy two…).
