Spellcrow

Post by arctica » 25 Oct 2011, o 18:54

Not sure if this has been posted but i saw this over on Beasts of War and thought that some of their minis looked quite interesting, not massively exciting for me other than 3-4 miniatures (but i do rather like pumpkin scarecrows etc).

http://www.spellcrow.com/index.php

What i like about them is generally speaking they've come up with a more unique perspective on things and their painted miniatures are pretty well presented. Anyway here are some examples, lots of other things on their website too.

totally different!

the pumkin from spellcrow doesn't have a bottle - only the smoke
and the last one has two swords instead of two tomahawks.

totally different! :snooty:

:P :lol:

Very nice miniatures, profesional paintjob. I do not know that pumpkin was idea of Alcemy , for mr it is designed by nature :) realy what is inspired by Alcemy miniature, I see only pumpkin, rest is completly diferent . This white something with 2 swords, has other head (bird) , other design of feet and other weapon and pose. Similiar to Alcemy mini is only naked human body and colour scheme. Realy if somebody use white colour or human body shape is it inspiration from Alcemy?

I've bought starter pack plus one blister from Spellcrow. And I have ambiguous feeling about models. In general - sculpts in real look better than in pictures and definitely paintjob not always corresponds to sculpts. In fact pictures of models are also flawed in some way - probably slightly wrong composition, point of view and non linear scaling. Some of models are weird, I think they should be scary-grotesque, like for example Tir-Na-Bor models from Rackham, but Spellcrow's models lack something and look poor. On the other hand some of models are really nice, gnomes especially - lots of details, good composition.
As soon as I find some time I will post more deep review.

thank you for this mini-review :)

which miniatures are you referring to?

I agree that some of the figures posted here look very 2D, arms pointed outwards, legs next to each other. Not a lot of dynamics in the poses. But in general I quite like them, judging by the pictures.
