GAZILLIONS of years in the future...
Every possible calamity, cataclysm, apocalypse, and cosmic hangnail has befallen our beloved Mutha Oith during a bygone era known as The Time of The Flush. Now, After the Wipe, the ancient Hoomanrace is extinct and the wobbly orb is wrecked. Oith's current denizens evolved from the lowliest of the low: the resilient roach, the indomitable worm, the everlasting snack cake - the dregs that survived.
It is a time of grand adventure, bold exploration, mighty hocus-pokings, and the occasional hint of whimsical madness; a time of immense struggle, monstrous monstrosities, and remarkable happenstance where even the lowliest worm can become a Keistermeister by his own mop.
Now, by popular demand and the screaming insistence of literally gazillions of clamoring fans, Mutha Oith Creations is proud to announce, in partnership with the formidable Eastern Front Studios, an entire line of (wait for it)...
LOW LIFE MINIATURES!

The Initial Set
The initial set will include these NINE figures, all done in heroic 30mm scale and ridiculously perfect for all your Low Life adventures or anywhere else dark whimsy is appreciated. You can also earn extra minis by "liking" our official Facebook page. We'll talk about those a bit later on. For now, let's meet the peeps:
Byulunculus the Vigilant: An armored pile who spends his nights goozing around Floom astride his loyal pygmy slog, Orthington, indiscriminately sawing limbs and other bits from bad guys (and the occasional not-so-bad guy). GOAL ATTAINED!
Walloping Krong: A cremefillian from the town of Bottom Saloo, he wields his flaming Dammit Hammer with impunity, crushing all who oppose him or insult his momma's sandwich recipe. GOAL ATTAINED!
Occifer Gleech: This hoink of Torkle weilds his vibrant 'stache and shovel staff to enforce the city's mandates from the Grease Tunnel Turf to the Sock Garter District. Respect his authority. GOAL ATTAINED!
Pandalope the Panderer: A pimpular tizn't from Over There, Pandalope maintains a stable in Floom's The Pits neighborhood, occupying an alley between the Slargleflop and Pickled & Plowed. GOAL ATTAINED!
Unctious Pwoof: A masterful smellcaster from the Garden of Smellemental Glee, Unctious is shown here in mid reek-coalescence. She's mighty mighty. GOAL ATTAINED!
Trozzgoxx the Lobe: Rumored to canoodle with emissaries of the mysterious Primordial Soup Kitchen, Trozzgoxx is a powerful dementalist and celebrated weisenheimer. He also gives great back rubs. GOAL ATTAINED!
Angry Ubgunsker: As a member of the Happy Plate Club, Ubgunsker hopes to leave his mark on history by eradicating every last Thing That Might Not Be. It's good to have a goal. GOAL ATTAINED!
The Guy With The Killin' Stick: He's just a guy with a killin' stick. GOAL ATTAINED!
Mysterious One-Eyed Croach: This wily entrepeneur hangs out in the alley across from The Dive Inn, one of Flooms skeeviest skankatoria. He specializes in healing "diseases of passion" with a sniff of his enormous red finger. GOAL ATTAINED!
The Sockstrosity: This lovely lady was unlocked because we got a buns load of likes on the Low Life Minis facebook page! Goal Attained!
So, there you have the first nine peeps. These are the guys and girls included in the initial set. Below, let's talk about some STRETCH GOALS. These goals add extra value to the original rewards. Come along, I think you'll like them.
Assuming the listed funding level is reached, these goals are rewarded, at no extra charge, to all backers who pledge at the Stench-Wrangling Smelf level and above ($50).
Snells: This two-pack includes a male snell and a female snell, our shell-headed friends introduced in the upcoming book The Whole - A Gadabout's Guide to Mutha Oith - Vol. 01: Keister Island (pdf available now). GOAL ATTAINED!
Ubb Gubertinct: This Fungish smelf enjoys long walks in the fungle, wonking the 'spronge, and harvesting shrooms in the Soul Patch. He's yours FOR FREE if you are backing at a level high enough to earn yourself the STRETCH REWARDS ($50). You guys earned him by completing the "Raise $6000 by 4pm on Monday" Challenge. Way to go! More such challenges will present themselves as the project unfolds. GOAL ATTAINED!
Funguys: Two funguys (a funguy and a fungal) live in this two-pack. How does a peep tell the difference? It's a mystery. GOAL ATTAINED!
Flews: Get it? Their ancestors were flies but these guys don't have wings, so they're known as flews. HA! Anyway, two of them, a lad and a lass, are included. GOAL ATTAINED!
If these STRETCH GOALS are met we'll cast the first set of nine in pewter instead of resin (assuming we can still get the necessary detail) AND they'll all have decorative bases. Not only that, I'll write up detailed character sheets and backgrounds for these guys and make them available in PDF format.
Those are the so-called STRETCH GOALS. The following listings are the SNAZZY GOALS. They are included, as long as their relevant funding level is attained, with all backing rewards of the Wistful Oofo Dementalist level and above ($75).
The Sockstrosity: This lovely lady was unlocked because we got a buns load of likes on the Low Life Minis facebook page! Goal Attained!
Coblins: These enormous ears of what passes for corn hail from the land of Glowhio, where gazillions of years of nukular radiation have brought them sentience and other fancy jazz. GOAL ATTAINED
Scarier Ass Mutha: Far scarier than regular scary ass muthas, these guys are ferocious, vile, and just downright mean. I'm not sure what he's so angry about, but it's probably something you did. GOAL ATTAINED!
Umber Cuke: Befuddling beasts of the Underwhere, these voracious predators dig munching the bones of innocent gadabouts. GOAL ATTAINED!
Glutenous Maximus: This cremefillian gladiator is one of the gnarliest chin-choppers the Scrappin' Hole's ever seen. GOAL ATTAINED!
Lichenthrope: Once this guy was just a simple werm, but then the villainous mosses of Stan's Rug did their thang and he's all goosed up. GOAL ATTAINED!
Werm ...of the Danged: Poor guy. It's not polite to stare. GOAL ATTAINED!
The Boss of Lunch: You guys unlocked him and his friends by funding the Werm ...of the Danged by lunchtime on Friday. Why not unlock the Corpulent Sludge posthaste? That is, after all what the Boss of Lunch makes his sandwiches out of. GOAL ATTAINED!
Hot Dammit: This little fellow tagged along with the Boss of Lunch because Steven asked for it. I don't know, maybe he cooks the sandwiches or something. These guys also fuel Walloping Krong's dammit hammer, so there's that. Two hot dammits are included in the set. GOAL FREAKIN' ATTAINED!
Shloorp: These unpleasant goosers lurk in the marshy Scum Quag (and other squishy places) just waiting to slurp the fluids from some hapless wanderer. No straw required. GOAL ATTAINED!
Corpulent Sludge: These vaguely upright masses of gelatinous sludge roam many of Oith's danker realms. GOAL ATTAINED!
Halving the Likes: I halved the needed likes needed for the free minis on the Low Life Minis Facebook page because you unlocked the Corpulent Sludge by Monday. GOAL ATTAINED!
Blue Hiney: You unlocked Blue Hiney and his glub by getting a whole bunch of likes on the Low Life minis facebook page. GOAL ATTAINED!
That's it for SNAZZY GOAL REWARDS. Let's now turn our attention to the ULTIMATE SUPER ULTRA MEGA REWARDS, which are included at no extra charge for all backers at the Hunky Horcish Hate-monger level ($100).
Queen Mutha: She's big, She's bad. She pukes her own offspring and she's not going to take any guff from the likes of you, mister. The queen mutha comes with an assortment of regular scary ass muthas. GOAL ATTAINED!
Zub Trooxle: Fresh from a hunting excursion in Stan's Rug, this wily oofo enjoys long walks in the scuzz and hacking the beaks from ferocious mosstriches. GOAL ATTAINED!
Uuulon Crepulos: Floom's most powerful contanimator stomps the streets astride his trusty, rusty, about-to-busty, contanimatronic minion. This is another BIG figure. GOAL ATTAINED!
Oily Nad: You unlocked this ingenious contanimant weirdo by unlocking Uuulon Crepulos by noon on Wednesday. GOAL ATTAINED!
F'reek: The hideous and stench-ridden result of smellcasting gone drastically wrong (in a bad way). GOAL ATTAINED!
Blor-porple: That's the sound it makes when they rip out a peep's intestines. These cute little guys suck real bad. Stay away and never, ever, let your sister date one. GOAL ATTAINED!
Scentipede: The not-quite hideous and stench-ridden result of smellcasting gone drastically wrong (in a good way). GOAL ATTAINED!
That's about it for the ULTIMATE SUPER ULTRA MEGA GOALS. As an added bonus, everyone who backs at the Croach with the Moach level will nab a FREE POSTER featuring many of the images upon which these minis are based. Wanna know about the HOLY CRAP GOALS? I thought you might...
HOLY CRAP REWARDS will be unlocked when we hit $30,000. They are awarded, free of additional charge, to peeps backing at the Croach with the Moach level and above ($150).
Halving the Likes Again: If we unlock the Scentipede by Breakfast on Monday September 17 I will halve the number of likes needed to earn the free minis on the Low Life Minis facebook page. This will bring us Blue Hiney and get us dangerously close to the Bollz and Allopecia two pack. GOAL ATTAINED
Rhed'boq Q'ol: Q'ol is a hardcore holy roller who digs espousing the virtues of Great Cornthulhu and cracking the kernels of heretics with his mighty club of mightiness. He'll be offered as a Holy Crap reward if we reach $30,000 by breakfast on Friday September 14. This will officially open the Holy Crap Goals. GOAL ATTAINED!
Sunny Hindquarters: This pimpin' smelf rules the roost at The Dive Inn, a strumpet-infested den of crud and iniquity in Floom's Mongerblocks turf. GOAL ATTAINED!
Another Blor-Porple?: Yep, another blor-porple. Heck, make it THREE MORE BLOR-PORPLES because you're awesome. GOAL ATTAINED!
Tenemental: As the Fundamental spirit of substandard housing, this horrid contanimant is a GOOSIN' HUGE MINIATURE! It even includes Tomethrower Feelth, the pile hoink down there in the corner. GOAL ATTAINED!
Clamsack the Corpulent: As Principal Broker of the Bottomliners, Clamsack believes his vast wealth makes him the holiest peep in Floom. He excurses daily from his mansion atop the Vault of Revenuvial Affluence astride his loyal stomp and accompanied by a fluffy show slog and a burger-carrying servant of some sort. GOAL ATTAINED!
Halving the Likes AGAIN!: If we reach at least $42,000 I will halve the number likes needed to get the free minis on the Low Life minis facebook page yet again. This will nab us the Bollz and Allopecia 2-pack with interchangable weapons and possibly some others. GOAL ATTAINED!
Plorp: This is another BIG miniature. It comes complete with a rider and a view of the road. GOAL ATTAINED!
Cremefillian War Party: You asked for so I hastily drew it. The war party will include AT LEAST four different cremefillian warriors, most likely decked in the duds of a Jemimah's Witness. Goal Attained!
Hamster: It's a hamster. GOAL ATTAINED!
Smyrt Happytree: Brian Harriman won the Amazingly Amazing Low Life Miniatures Character Design Contest with this fantastic character! GOAL ATTAINED!
His words: The Pthalites are a sect of the Church of Rob, who consider the current woes of Mutha Oith to be just another happy little accident (or at least another happy large accident)that can be fixed with a little effort, while the more militant believers of the Alizarinite sect would rather just paint a happy bush over it all and let it be our little secret" Appearance: a croach daubed with (Pthalo) blue paint, wearing a fake afro (that's inhabited by whatever passes for squirrels in post-wipe oith) plus a matching fake beard, dressed in robes that resemble a painters smock, (possibly with room for a soothing mountain scene on the back) and wielding a stave that resembles a large paintbrush. He should also seem way to cheerful for his own good. (assuming it's even possible to give a croach that kind of expression).
Squiggins Neverlost: This intrepid gadabout is a werm with class. He knows his way around just bout everywhere. If you see him, tell him I said "It's in your back pocket." He'll know what I mean.
Cute Little Duckies: You asked for them and here they are. One of Mutha Oith's cutest little eviscerators. This set includes two cute little duckies and a ravaged corpse.
The Garden of Smellmental Glee Awesomeness Pack: This set comes with THREE smelven monks of the Garden AND a Croach riding some sort of contanimatronic device (as featured in The Whole Hole).
Halving the Likes AGAIN!: If we reach at least $60,000 I will halve the number likes needed to get the free minis on the Low Life minis facebook page yet again. This will nab us the Sphincs.
Uncter: HUGE! This enormous two-headed croach-like beast is a true bad ass. I DARE you to unlock him.
We will add one new character or monster to the HOLY CRAP GOALS for every $3000 (character or small monster) or $5000 (large monster) raised beyond $70,000. Who or what will it be? That's up to you. Send us a message and let us know what you want.
