Here is a bunch of WIP pictures of various sculpts.  Remember, many of these will be refined in the coming weeks as well and are missing arms or hands or other details.  The heads have just been placed on to give an idea of what it looks like.

Squad vs Squad Gruntz Game

A slight different Gruntz Game coming up.

Here is my 150 point "army". It's going to be a squad vs squad on a 2'x2' table. Each trooper is a "Gruntz Specialist" and will operate independently.

The Sniper Team card will be one sniper.






And this will be the table:

ClearHorizon Minis - Kickstarter Hura Squads Updates - And we're already at 111% with 3 weeks to go :)

Hi everyone,

First off, thank you all for you support, being at 111% and still having three weeks to go is way beyond my expectations, thank you!

We have the latest update to our kickstarter! Already Funded and almost at the first stretch goal!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2027302274/exoskeleton-assault-squad-and-hura-technocracy-15m

Here are the start of the poses for the Hura:


Hura squad

1x command already sculpted

1x heavy like command but with helmet that covers middle of head and a bit more body armor plates and round forcefields generators (small) holding larger quad barrel weapon with all four arms
4x same as heavy load out with small gun
A) firing with small arms. Big arms and legs walking forward
B) firing to left holding gun with small arm and big arm, other small arm and big arm to the side
C) kneeling with small arms firing, big arms at ground
D) kneeling as above but gun lowered

And there will be one more:

Holding the gun in the small arms in a firing position but using his legs and large arms to run, a bit like a gorilla

--

And Sean (the sculptor) had this to say:

Attached is a pic of the Hura armatures and bulk ups. As before I'll add the small set of arms after the body is done so they don't get in the way.

I added a bit of height to them so they look taller, I'll correct the Command model that is already sculpted so he is the same height as well. I only added about 1mm of height.

I thought the legs looked "stumpy" compared to what the artwork showed.Attached is a pic of the Hura armatures and bulk ups.

And he's also working on the Epsilon heads as we speak and should have something soon!

Any feedback is always appreciated!

Gruntz! - Activation Cards Preview



Robin from Gruntz! is showing off his new card activation deck for Gruntz.

I'm very excited about these. I'm working on a simple reaction system for Gruntz as well and I think these would fit in nicely.

I envision using these as follows:

  • Each player is dealt a number of cards based on how many units they have (1:1 for each unit)
  • Each player (alternating) assigns cards to their units. They can assign any cards to any units, even putting multiple cards on the same unit.
  • Everyone reveals the cards and you activate from highest to lowest.


I (ClearHorizon Miniatures) was at the Gamex Convention this last weekend.  I played a lot of demo games and got a lot of folks interested in 15mm gaming.  I look forward to playing more games!

How would you? Hidden Movement orders and XCOM Style mission generation.

Hi everyone,

So, as things ebb and flow I've decided to do a supplement add-on to the Gruntz rules to emulate the small-scale skirmish gaming i'd like to do .

I'd like to have both players issuing orders at the same time, and then revealing them with initiative and skill taking part to modify these orders.

I'd also like a mission system that can be a bit random, but also interesting.  A fun part of the game rather than just the start.

I'd like to hear any suggestions you folks have.

What would you guys like to see?

Thanks!
Harold

Mr. Harold's Mini Review - Khurasan Miniatures Tracked SuperHeavy Tank and GOTA Clan Command Squad


Hi Everyone,

Today I ramble on about Khurasan Miniature's Siler Superheavy Tracked tank and the GOTA Clan Command Squad.  I also put the barrel upside down and confuse an engine grate for a bulldozer blade, it's good fun!
