Crowdfunding Spotlight: Cthulhu Wars Kickstarter

9 Jun

Today, although I have a few posts to make, I’m keeping it brief, if you haven’t noticed (a bit of flu I’m afraid!) On to another great looking project is the new baby from Sandy Peterson (of Call of Cthulhu RPG fame) this time with a game called Cthulhu Wars, and as you an guess based on the works and Mythos of HPL himself.

There are some really disgustingly fantastic creature sculpts here, that’s what interests me most about the whole thing, there’s some lovely playing pieces here.  Its a bit out of my price range at the moment, so I’m kicking myself that I can’t get some of the factions for my own purposes, all I can say is roll on that lottery win just so I can get all these miniatures and shinies I keep seeing available!

Check it out and get involved.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Star Bowl Fantasy Football Miniatures on Indiegogo

7 Jun

Hello there folks, I just saw this on frother’s and thought it’d be worthy of a mention (I just hope it doesn’t grass them up by doing so!) Still, what’s the point of publicising something like this on the net!

As you can see, this project is for a Star Wars inspired set of fantasy football miniatures. A cool idea and well executed too. If only it weren’t for the fact this is not an officially licensed product. This would not stop me from getting some if I wanted them, but I don’t think the Empire of the Mouse would be happy at all with this. Somehow I think that soon this is going to be pulled when someone realises this is a really dumb move.

If people think GW’s legal department is bad, when the IP lawyers get a sniff of this, a C&D might be the least of this guy’s worries….

It is a shame, but the reality is that to officially license the iconology is going to be a lot of cash, and if your launching a project like this on a crowdfunding platform to ask for investment, you probably don’t have the money to get the license in the first place.

I mean, just take a look at the concept pic, and the miniature of the Not Yoda. I really do feel sorry for the guy as he seems a very creative and talented fella, the worst thing about it is, if he doe’s achieve funding, the lawyers will probably sting him for more than he makes in total. Someone needs to tell him at least, before Mickey Rat’s guys get to him.

Disney buying Lucasfilm, Star Wars Episode 7 coming in 2015 | Den of Geekalt.

OMG! jeezuz I can’ t believe it, Lucas has sold Lucasfilm and its other companies to the big bad Disney corp! It’s reported that a massive 4 Billion and odd dollar deal has been done to secure his “retirement” fund!

I can see Walt Disney’s frozen head in a block of carbonite right now! Lets just hope that StarWars episode 7, 8, 9 and beyond are going to be better than the prequels. My question is, what about the planned Star Wars “Underworld” series? Will this just be watered down for kiddie Disney XD? or abandoned all together?

Time will tell.
