Necropolis Nobles on Kickstarter

I don’t often promote kickstarters here, mostly because by the time I become aware of them it’s about six months after funding closed and I’ve missed out. This one however is one that I’ve had several enquires about from readers so more than merits me paying attention and giving a mention. In the past I’ve posted a few models from Black Crab, including these three weird looking characters…

… and this raggedy man.

I also have several more which I’m aiming to get painted… sooner or later. They make perfect civilians, particularly for the grubbier corners of the various Warhammer settings and would make fine additions to Mordheim or Cursed City, whilst being generic enough to sneak into a sci-fi setting like Necromunda. I’ve had several people ask me where I got them from but unfortunately the Black Crab range has only been available via their kickstarter campaigns. Right now however they’re having another campaign, this time to fund the creation of a beggar king and his court.

Begger Court

What’s more this means the older models are available once again. If you’re reading this right at the moment I hit publish then you have about four days to get your order in. If on the other hand you’re reading this several years in the future, well I tried to warn you!

    Thanks for sharing, these look really interesting!

      They’re cool aren’t they? I’ve had a few people asking where they could get them from in the past so I figured it was the least I could do to spread the word a bit.

    Really like the armless “beggar” you,ve showcased before… And I think he’s the only one not suffering from “disproportionately big arm mutation”… Specially those weird three… How can the aesthetic be so cool, nail all the details, and yet manage to look so off in the sizes department?

    • Wudugast

      Yeah, they do have massive great paws on them don’t they? The more recent ones aren’t too bad but the first set have some really wacky proportions going on. Still damn cool models all the same though. 🙂

    Yup, looks like I’ll be breaking my ‘no Kickstarter’ fast!!

    I really like the aesthetic of their miniatures though I’m not sure I like the way they do the faces. They all look a bit samey and not especially realistic which is a shame because otherwise, these are very appealing sculpts. If you decide to back this kickstarter, it would be awesome to see you paint them up!

    • Wudugast

      Yeah, the faces are a bit odd – in fact the models in general are a bit odd but honestly I quite like that. I wouldn’t want every model in my collection to look like that but for a small selection I think it really works – they always look to me as though they’ve stepped out of some tapestry that depicts a particularly demented medieval kingdom. Anyway, I backed it so expect to see them popping up here sooner or later. 🙂

      • Kuribo

        Having oddly shaped faces certainly works for a Blanchitsu kind of feeling (which I’m almost positive is up your alley!) so backing the Kickstarter was a good move I’d say 🙂

    Strangely enough, out of all of them I like that Bear the best. And it’s something that would normally be a bit too goofy for me. Maybe I’m in a goofy mood today or just need something cute to cheer me up!

    • Wudugast

      Aye, I’m liking the look of the bear myself. Hope all’s well – I spend half my life in a goofy mood myself, and you can’t go wrong with a bear when you need cheered up. 🙂

Speak, damn you!
