Phase 4 Heavy Exoform

Here's the big-daddy of the Strain exoforms (for now at least!) - The Grendlr. All of the sculpts for the Strain miniatures are amazing, but this one is just stunning - a sci-fi horror masterpiece by Jacques-Alexandre Gillois. The Phase 1 sculpts are all by Remy Tremblay, and the Phase 2 and 3 are by Yannick Hennebo - both have excelled themselves with these I think. Brilliant work all round.

The plan is to have all of the Strain miniatures available on the Studio Store this week - most likely Thursday. I'll send out a newsletter when they are in the store and try and post here as well. They are going to be cast in resin to start with, they may not be limited edition, but they will be available for a limited time initially - I'll post more details when I get back from GenCon. We have tried to keep the prices of the resin castings down as low as we possibly can - but it's an expensive process to produce high quality resin castings, so they will be a little more expensive than the metal Sedition Wars miniatures. The quality of casting is amazing though, and all the horrible detail really shines through!

All the Strain miniatures will be available as metal castings at GenCon at the Coll Mini or Not booth - 849 (along with me!)

Off to GenCon today, in a few hours in fact. Please do come along and try out the game if you are there - it's a very early version of the rules, so you'll be doing us a favour by helping out with the play-testing! We are going to have some really nice posters to give away (with a play surface/map on them) if you buy miniatures or try the game. We'll also have all the Studio McVey painted miniatures there on display.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Sedition Wars game plays now. The strain mini's look ace and I'll be hoping to get my hands on some soonish.

He is superb! The perfect balance between sci-fi and horror - nasty bio-tech from the future.

How big is he btw?

StudioMcVey said...

@ Avicenna - he's pretty big! That's a 40mm base he's on.

Will there be any chance of getting a poster/playtest in if we AREN'T able to make GenCon?

I've got a complete collection of the humans from this line and would love to give it a go.

@ Ash - Yes! At least I think so anyway... I plan to bring as many of the posters back with me as I can - then I need to figure some way of getting them out to people. More news on that when I get back and work it out! At the very least you will be able to download a pdf of the map.
