As mentioned in a previous post, the Knights of Gnar kickstarter from ThunderChild Miniatures started yesterday morning with a modest goal of 500 pounds to fund a posse pack of 5 knights, a pack of three snail riding Deathcargot Dragoons and the Behemoth Colossal Battle Snail...
Well lets just say thattotal is well and truely smashed!!!! We currently sit at over 2000 pounds and have broken the following stretch goals:
Here is a WIP of the next goal, the Battle Wyzard:
He looks great even at this early stage and i have no doubt he will be funded very soon yeah boi!!
Rumours and whispers have been abound in the Benethverse of a new power on the move...
The militant arm of the pilgrims commonly seen about the blighted wastes have mobilised in ever increasing numbers! Blessed warriors marching along side fearsome Deathcargot Dragoons and even larger beasts have been spotted, Colossal Battle Snails carrying Warleaders and Shrines! Can the Nuke rays and Assault Rifles of the topsiders stand against the horde????
With the near complete and early dispatch of the MODZ minis to all the eager backers, Thunderchild Miniatures is returning to Kickstarter to fund the Knights of Gnar to add to the Wasteman line.
The Colossal Battle Snail is massive, here is a wip of it alongside the Abomination!
Do it for Harambe: £8 for Harambe the Valiant on his own.
Cohort:£23 for a posse pack of 5 Knight infantry including Harambe OR 3 Snail riding Deathcargot Dragoons OR 1 Colossal Battle Snail
Contingent: £60 for the Knight Posse, 3 Deathcargot and 1 Colossal Battle Snail
Regal Regiment: £118 for TWO Contingent Packs
Grand Battle Host: £170 for THREE Contingent Packs
Crusader Creator: £300 for one of every model in the kickstarter AND Jason will sculpt a custom Knight based on your specifications!!
Jason has also sent me some WIP concept art of other models that will hopefully be funded as part of the campaign:
Variant Deathcargot Snails
Priestly chap with Eldar God tendancies
Tall guy and Fish Dude hehe
Raising the Flag!
Blessed Warriors with Relic Weapons!
The campaign will be kicking off next Saturday, 23rd of September, and will run for 7 days... Nice and short like the previous MODZ one and was a great success. The funding goal is £500 which will bring the Knights posse, three Deathcargot and the Colossal Battle Snail to the range, but that is not the end as many stretches are planned such as those shown above and also variants for the top of the Colossal Snail with a Priest in an Eldritch Warthrone and a fighting platform for Knights!
As an aside, my MODZ pledge arrived today so will be busting them out over the next week or so too!!!
Before tackling the Tau head on i need to complete another small Warmaster job in the form of an Empire starter force. Its painted in the red & green of Hochland and the first units are now complete below:
These are more involved than previous Warmaster projects due to the split colour scheme but i like how they have come out. Next up will be the Knights...
I've done them in the same style as my army for Age of Sigmarines, and i have to say they were really nice to work with being large enough to paint singularly like small warhammer figure before transfering them to a 20x40mm Warmaster base.
My other preview minis i shall be painting up during the campaign itself, along with any other goodies i might be able to prize from Barry's hands hehe
