This company came onto my radar after +DAVE DOCHERTY used one of the paint products they stock, the scale 75 range and I went to investigate the flesh pack upon his recommendation. I was quickly distracted when I went to the web shop though by a range of miniatures that really did catch my eye and my imagination.
Many of you know I like many things Viking / Scandinavian and the folklore and tales are no exception so imagine my surprise when I was presented with this image.
I was drawn in like the proverbial moth to a flame and was soon presented with all manner of figures to feed an over active mind. I decided that I would wait until Triples and go pay them a visit and I was even more impressed with what I saw and after a chat to David and Jayne I discovered that a lot more figures are on the way. This is going to cost me a fortune as I know I am going to have to collect these for the sheer joy of painting!
I will let David tell you about the company and its aims:
"A little bit about us ....where to start ? We are a new start-up miniature company (March 2014) and supply our very own range of 'Nightfolk' white metal Dark Fantasy Miniatures !
Our online shop also stocks a comprehensive range of hobby paints scenic accessories and white metal figures, from manufacturers such as Scale75,Andrea, Vallejo, Perry, Otherworld, North Star etc."
I am very privileged to be given the rights to publish these images and present the first twelve figures in the range Sculpted By Martin Buck, Painting by Kevin Dallimore:
Yes I am hooked I enjoy painting Fantasy figures as one off's and these are a unique range. David has given me a bit more information about the future plans for the company as well so I will let him explain:
"The first wave of 'Nightfolk' characters consist of 12 miniatures and are available from our webstore now. The second wave of miniatures will be launched on our webstore this weekend (see below) and will be available from our stand at Partisan next weekend - we are now offering multi packs and full range deals on the miniatures.
Our plan is to have a rolling programme of releases with approximately 4 new figures a month for the foreseeable future (we have another 12 greens ready to be cast now!)
We plan to expand the range with various larger creatures and different factions of 'Folk' as the year progresses - there will also be a 'Nightfolk' skirmish printed rule set available later this year.
Thanks for this Andrew it is much appreciated !
David and Jayne"
So that is me going to have plenty to keep the creative side alive in the coming months. I know these will appeal to some of you in the blogosphere so please take 5 minutes to visit the site (click the banner at the top of the post) and see the new ranges.
Thats me signing out for the day have a good one!
