Yeah, our designer kind of won Hugos for that, so really another classic archetype.


You mean we could actually see Agatha as a Figure OH I AM SO THERE!

To be honest it will be a good indication based on the legs whether they are full sculpts or head and hand swaps as we get closer. I am okay with both, variants of similar models are fine with me. It just indicates faster turn-around as there is less "build from scratch" for some poses. The one that interests me is the $20K level he should be an interesting sculpt.

Heh. Yeah, I'd love to see a whole set of figures from that series. They'd be perfect for Deadlands!

What I'm REALLY hoping will show up sometime as a Deadlands HoE figure would be this fellow from the old hardcover book cover, courtesy of Studio Parente.






For me, this fellow set the "iconic" look of the "Wasted West" for me. That, and the hover-bike. Woot!

Um, you know there's a very good reason for him not to be a mini, right?

Other than the mighty large expense in metal...um no. Is he someone special?

I am kind of Kickstarter broke, having spent too much on Reaper and a couple of others recently. Any idea what the MSRP of these minis will be when they are released?

(Aside from the KS-exclusives, like Stone and Hellstromme, of course.)

Cole Ballad. He was a play-test player character. He did some neat stuff and became an official, established NPC.

Note the use of the past tense. Cool

And this means there's no reason why there can't be a mini of him? That's kind of like saying that West End Games shouldn't have put out a miniature of Boba Fett or Darth Vader, because of their respective movie fates. (Yes, yes, I know about the expanded universe continued adventures of Boba Fett.)

The various "named major NPC" miniatures in the Savage Worlds line (Raven, Hellstromme, Stone, Grimme, etc.) also work nicely as "archetypes" for their respective professions. If I thought I could only use them to represent the character with the name printed on the blister pack, I'd either have a long time before I could ever put them on the table, or I'd have to be planning a whirlwind tour of the big names of the Deadlands universe.

In any case, I always liked the design of that hoverbike, and think the look of the character makes for a cool Law Dog with just a touch of the Wild West look. (Hat, vest, and badge, anyway.)

Failing that, I hope there will at least be some post-apoc "scavvie" weapons at some point. Shotguns and near-future pistols are all well and good, but some of the more interesting weapons in the HoE illustrations were those that looked like they've been scavenged from the scrapyard -- improvised or "junk" weapons, neo-primitive weapons, sharpened hubcabs, stop-sign axes, chains-and-hooks, jury-rigged chainsaws, etc.

Ah well. Another kitbash project, I suppose.

I'd like to see a miniature for Cole. As you say, he's got a great look to him, one that really sets the tone for the setting. Heck, I've seen a half-dozen PCs in my various campaigns that were variants on the same concept (tough-as-nails Law Dog).

But I can understand PEG's reluctance to put it out there. Especially with the emotional attachments they probably have regarding his overall fate.

I think Valhalla might have been a bit subtle, so I might as well come out and say it:

He's dead, Jim.

Can't remember where $55k one is from (I think it was a female gunslinger), but nice to see that the original Templar (the archetype image) is on there, though way off at $70k.

A little disappointed that the first possibility of a Doomsayer is at $40k. Doomsayers where always my favorite minis, cuz I used them as bag guys all the time.

The Gang Leader donation level is EXACTLY what I've been waiting for. I'll probably also be tempted to add some more funds to get the dice as well. Glad to be on board.

I suggest to Like, Share, and post about where you can. The more backers it gets; the faster the goals are reached and the more backers it appeals to and the more goals are reached and so on. If it snowballs, it has the potential to pass well beyond even $70K.

Just submitted a write up now. I know I'm not a PEG employee, but hopefully it will make it to the news page.
