Time To Get Sculpting from Hydra Miniatures

Time To Get Sculpting from Hydra Miniatures

John David Douma and I had a very productive breakfast meeting regarding Atomic Tank. It looks like all of the core rules mechanics have been finalized and John will begin work for the full manuscript for Atomic Tank. We came up with a lot of really cool troop ideas for other factions. Time to get sculpting!

Mariano Arista consults with Romulo Diaz de la Vega from Good Ground LLC

Major General Mariano Arista consults with Brigadier General Romulo Diaz de la Vega as they personally place the 6th Line Infantry Regiment into their mile-long line of battle at Palo Alto. Meanwhile the Light Mounted Regiment of Mexico moves to the left of their line. All figures are from my So Far from God range of 10mm figures for the Mexican-American War. All will make a showing for my game at Hurricon 2020.

What Scale from Hydra Miniatures

What Scale from Hydra Miniatures

What scale are the Atomic Tank miniatures?

When we first began prototyping Atomic Tank, we were going to use 6mm miniatures.  I have an extensive collection of Epic 40K and my creative partner John David Douma has an incredibly well-painted collection of OGRE miniatures also in 6mm.  However, we quickly found that the Atomic Tank 6mm figures lacked a lot of the pulp aesthetic at that scale.

We wanted to keep them as small as possible but still retain details and eventually settled on 10mm/12mm (1:144) as it gave us the best compromise between small size and big detail. Smaller miniatures such as minibots can still be reasonably represented in this scale.  Some people are bummed we didn't go with 15mm, but we felt that the models would be too large.  The Galacteer Atomic Tank would have been 4" in 15mm scale--a little too big for our tastes.

We are really getting close to getting a clean set of core rules for Atomic Tank. New miniatures are in the works.  Stay patient, cadets!

Updated War Priest and Thoughts on the Wingsuit Guys

Bob reworked the War Priest's head and warhammer, here's the updated version:

Updated War Priest

Updated War Priest

In order to make the Flying Wingsuit guys 40 units (assuming a price tag of $15) would have to be added to get us to $1,500. That's an average of about 1.5 units per backer at this point. Honestly, even if we get close I'd probably go ahead and make them like I did with the Pikemen way back when.

Finally, if you pledged for multiple rewards please shoot me a message so I can keep a rough tally of what's being ordered. As always, nothing will be final until the invoices have gone out and have been paid for.
