I just read about his "hobby", he's the kid from the It's a Good Life skit in the Twilight Zone Movie from '83.
@estrus This is exactly what I thought. I'm hoping we don't hit this goal... I don't want to *play* with this one.
Yay! Fewer boob warriors and more creepy kid/penis monsters!
that is one creepy figure lol good to see another (unofficial) addition to the "hell club" though
I prefer the look of the art work rather than the sculpt. The childlike appearance gives him that sinister innocence like Damien in the first Omen movie (original version, not the remake)
But still a wicked character, especially his abilities.
Love the character - I can't tell if I prefer tiny child Nicolas (in the art) or angsty pre-teen Nicolas (in the sculpt). Both are charming. Bring it on!
@Judgement I see what you mean (regarding his chronological age vs physical age). Your theory on stunted growth sounds very feasible! I think we'll just have to agree to disagree past that point. Think the concept art's 'little antichrist' look is better, so hope they go that way. At least people seem to be unanimous that the 'sleeves' need to be more visible XD
Was I the only one who immediately thought of this?http://encodex265.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/The-Neverending-Story-1984-Poster.jpg
Actually, maybe the lack of a usual digestive tract has stunted Nicolas' growth - hence him appearing older than 5 but younger than the 20 his siblings appear to be.
@Alex - I'll grant that the concept art looks younger but past that his bio means nothing.
He's the sibling of Thorley & Rose in Team Alpha https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coolminiornot/the-others-7-sins/posts/1352779
Products of Hell Club experimentation at splicing human & extra-dimensional DNA, they're both 5 years old but look 20. They're both physically mature but not mentally/socially/emotionally mature. I'm actually surprised that he doesn't look slightly older...
@Judgement I'm just basing my opinion on the concept art, and how much better he looks there than in the sculpt. Plus, everything in his bio (being 5, liking cuddles and stories etc) are suited to a small (twisted) child. It's a known horror standard - Damien was a hell of a lot creepier as a warped little boy than as a teenager and adult!
I am reminded of Damien from the Omen but with a demonic pet/twin brother.
@Christopher - why more kid-like?
He's the same age as his siblings Thorley & whatsername (tentacle-armed girl) in Team Alpha. The experiments age somewhat differently to normal humans.
@ Marco @Alex In complete agreeance the sculpt and idea behind the piece is terrifying and wonderful but the actual piece needs the kid to be more kid like, less teenager and side sleeves sure would be nifty.
Fascinating; His board is purple like the mystery one in the core set.
@Marco totally agree. Love the concept, love the artwork, but he needs to be smaller with a more rounded face in the sculpt - right now he looks like a teenager!
the top of his beak is very sensitive if you can find it
Very nice SG although I'm kinda sad the "sleeves" didn't make it into the sculpt. :/
Very cool, was not expecting a monster.
@Dave: Cheers mate. Thanks for the answer. I was not sure. Need to watch the Video again.:-)
Look at those little little hands! Is this a Kingdom Death x-over? ;-)
Sweet! Was hoping we'd get a creepy kid.
In the section "Here's a look at everything unlocked so far:" There is already Nicolas, will you ship tu us even if the goal is not reached? :D
@Philip - in fact, as it should be, so far no expansion, add-on or SG requires anything else but the core set to use.
There are effectively some map layouts with Apocalypse that can only be used with map tiles from Gamma/Delta but that's just two map layouts out of 6. So Apocalypse is still fully playable without Delta/Gamma, just you can play 2 more map variants with those boxes.
Philip - no - Apocalypse cards are part of the core game.
Am I getting this right? Nicolas can only be used if the backer owns the Apokalypse box?
So its ends with something utterly evil... smart move.
@Thiago - regarding death of Nicolas - is he like the Mayor (respawning) or Hell Club (dead for good)?
I was just thinking earlier that it would be cool if they added some more stretch goals or optional buys for the Sin player. This one fits the bill!
"I choose you, caterpie!"
EXELLENT! I was waiting for something like that.
The penis riding child demon
absolutely amazing BUT.. man does that miniature not do it justice... the kid looks so much older and were are those disgusting sounding "sleeves" hes supposed to put his feet into , that sounded Nasty but the miniature just has him riding his brother. i guess as long as his picture is printed somewhere to look at as hes summoned it wont be a big deal! was NOT expecting this At All!
Was not expecting that!
Yahhhh!! MORRRREE EVIL!!!
wonder what Freud would say ...
Well, that's something you don't see every day.
Woah! "You're one ugly mofo..."
Won't someone think about the children?
WOW - this is amazeballs!
