We’ve been quite busy with the Nymphs for the past few weeks, tweaking some models and producing others, making small adjustments to the certificate and art card backs (yes, they’ll be double-sided), compiling the small lore snippets that will go on there as well, testing a few different ‘box schematics’ (I think you’ll love the one we chose), making test printings, so the color really pops on the art prints... below you’ll find a broad selection of the progress we’ve made:  

Nietzschean Nymph  

Our last model, finally revealed. This one was tough, we had to create her from scratch, and it was a challenge to sculpt her body type, as it’s not at all common in the miniatures world. We think we did a great job, but you’ll be the judge of that.

Mask Nymph corrections  

As you may recall, we once mentioned testing our molds. We do this, because things can sometimes not translate that well from 3D model to 3D master to resin sculpt. We also do this to find the optimal cutting lines, so the model is as easy to put together and as seamless as possible. If we find something lacking, or the engineering of cutting the model becomes too complex, we tweak things. We take this opportunity to enhance the models and add more details.  

With that introduction out of the way, here’s an updated look at the Mask Nymph. We’re not quite finished with this one, but you can see where we’re going:

Curiosity Nymph corrections  

Which brings us to the Curiosity Nymph. I don’t know about you, but we really disliked that fat cable. And it had to be fat, because things need to have a certain thickness, otherwise the resin may break. So, we made the call to move the cable, it now wraps around the Nymph’s hand like a snake. We also made several more small changes to the model to make it even better, can you find them all?

Machina, Solitude Nymphs close up and cut  

Just a close up of the awesome Machina Nymph. She landed on the cutting table and is now in master production.

Production samples  

And speaking of production, I just got our latest samples. The Blade and Age Nymphs you already saw, but that lovely ‘Aeon Trespass’ bar is brand new! Also, the Labyrinth Nymph (partially on sprue) and Knowledge Nymph (still mostly on the sprue) - fan favorites - and a selection of scenic bases.

The stamps  

Finally, on the Nymphs production side of things, we’ve been making progress with the boxes. This is the first of 16 unique, hand-made on demand stamps that will make even your miniature boxes tiny pieces of art... sorry, got a bit carried away, but still - the stamp looks amazing.

The Odyssey has started  

Well, it actually begun in Spring 2016, but all of it was rules, and lore, and stories, and sketches. And now we’re in production! We got the first few miniatures illustrated and 3d sculpted, ready for mastering (or HIPS molding...), with the Herodotus titan leading the way (he’s shaping up to be our mascot miniature).  

We've got guys illustrating monsters, landscapes, architecture, the peoples and the technology of post-Eschaton Greece, we’re making maps and conceptualizing whole technology trees of alternate, yet believable inventions.  

Our financial director is hard at work, crunching down the numbers of the economy engine, while the rest of us, with new beta testers, is trying to break the game during ongoing test sessions.  

This is happening and you won’t believe it when you see it.

      Hey guys! Thanks for all the feedback, we’ll take a closer look ;)

      The biceps might seem a little small but a better pic would be a side view to see what they actually look like on the figure. I think the bit throwing me off is that harsh line of cloth/leather/whatever wrapped around the chest, the upper back seems to have so much definition and the lower back appears to be rather smooth, especially when shown next to the front image and those abs are so ripped (but again it could be because I am looking at just a figure in grey scale)

      Great job on the body!! Although I'm wondering what is she holding?

      The Nietzschean Nymph: Great job, the back looks nice, but I feel the biceps are lacking a bit of muscle mass to match the powerhouse of muscles on the back. Like a chain of muscles giving power forward from the back muscles to the fist. Also looking forward to a more ... distorted hair as it goes up, like in the artwork. Less noteworthy her calf might also be a bit short of muscle mass, but unlike the arms vs back, her legs are covered so there is nothing indicates that they are off, though if it might just be me .
      The Mask Nymph: I like how the masks now have their own space and less clustered together. The image on the right is at an angle that makes the hair seem lesser though I recon it is the same, always a fan of big wavy hair.
      Curiosity Nymph: I did manage to find a few differences, the cable around the arm and all the small changes are nicely done. 1# The dress isn't draping the front of "The box", showing of more box art and legs. 2# Her hair lays more gently on her shoulders. 3# The cube is at another angle. 4# Inverted the center panther(art) on the box she is sitting on on all sides.

      We are, so thank you, doing a female bodybuilder phyique is a new thing for us, we'll definitely look into. :)

      I think Nietzschean looks great, but I think her upper back is hitting pretty close to the uncanny valley. Something about the transition from shoulder to upper back muscles seems a little off. Unfortunately I can't figure it out and it isn't a deal breaker by any means, but worth noting if you are looking for honest critique on such a unique body type ;)
