Fantastic! What a great concept and superb execution. His pose is very pleasing too, especially from the front.Also, great shield.
Yes, I love that shield.
Glad you guys like him (and the shield). It almost ended up being a net in his left hand. Paul made the call to go with the shield and it looks really nice. Just a few more details and the Type IV will be all finished. After that Paul is going to do a second Type III and finally a Type I. Pedro Navarro has started work on 4 Type IIs and that will round out the lesser demons. Type V and VI sometime next year maybe (hopefully by Paul).
You guys ever think of doing a kickstarter? With that kind of quality folks would be all over it.
I am a bit worried about him tipping over all the time. Would you consider a metal base?
I am working on a kickstarter for this right now. Tentatively plannes to include 1 Type I, 2 Type II, 2 Type III, 1 Type IV, and a bunch of manes (probably 6 or 9). My concern with the Kickstarter though is that even a reasonable price is getting up above $75 - $80 for all of that. That can be dealt with by having cheaper pledge levels though so it hopefully will not be a problem.@Iron Duke. That is a good point. He does look top heavy. I don't know about a metal base but I will look into that or perhaps a small terrain piece to help offet the issue. I will email Paul and see what he thinks.
Great, I'll watch out for that.
Please, please have Paul do Orcus and Yeenoghu:D
Orcus is on the list for the future. If the kickstarter goes really well I will have Orcus done next year. Hopefully by Paul Muller but no guarantees. Right now the plan is to focus on the Kickstarter and then I want to get a Type V and VI done as well as some of the basic devils. After that I am going to start on the unique demons and devils. Hopefully I can convince Paul to do a certain frazzled giant demonic ape I would like to see.
Brett---You might think about having him flying, via a clear post base, if the mini's not too heavy? I love the idea of one of these big heavy, tiny-winged brutes aloft and bashing at the PCs heads ;)Kickstarter = I'm there!Allan.
Interesting thought Allan. I will probably eventually do a second Type IV with switchable heads and arms so that is something to think about for sure. The only problem with it would be at that point you would probably need a brass rod if the miniature was metal or he would have to be resin for the plastic flying base to hold him. But you are right a flying giant demon would be really cool :)
I love Paul's work and this Type IV is awesome. I do have two caveats though: 1)As described earlier, he is way top heavy on tiny, thin legs to support him; 2) He is hairless, he should, at least, have fur/hair on his legs and arms.
That's one of the things I like in particular about Type IV demons---their wings and legs are too small to support them, if they were humans on the Prime Material Plane. The fact that they're still hideous opponents is, for me at least, augmented by the fact that they don't follow human physics, per se.Allan.
@grodog - I'm not commenting on the description of the demon, just the fact that that miniature is a big chunk of metal on two tiny, thin legs that will be bending all over the place in game use. The flying base idea may be a good one to stave this off.
