Grinning Skull’s Oddball Outlet: Custom Gamer Chests for sale!

29 Aug

Hello there everyone, In a departure from the usual stuff we have on sale from Grinning Skull Studios, I’d like to show you some physical product for once. Oddball Outlet is a term coined by yours truly, to describe any stuff I’ll be putting out to sell. I have quite a few gaming items coming up for grabs, so keep your eyes peeled.

In a throwback to previous products I’ve done before, I still like to turn my hand to actual objects, so these came about after quite a few private customers requested me to create these hand crafted & finished babies. So, after a successful batch run of our custom Gamer prop chests, I have decided to offer the rest of this batch for sale via eBay sales. I’ll be finishing more over time, but only to use up my remaining stock parts, so these are very limited (I’m not currently taking custom commission orders for these at this point, but might do so in the future, so if you are wanting a truly custom creation, get in touch and we’ll chat…)

These lovely hand finished, custom boxes are perfect for you fantasy gamers out there (but, of course, I’d say that!) So, without further ado, I’ll let the pics do the talking!

As you can see, the above chest, titled “The Arcane Herbalist”, is jam packed with trinkets and stuff, perfect as a gift, or spoil yourself and use as a display piece or prop for gaming, the choice is yours. It could be yours for £30 with free UK postage. You can find the listing for the “Arcane Herbalist” Chest over on eBay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132310231240?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

This box, “The Fortune Teller” includes all sorts of fortune telling gubbins, it even comes with it’s very own crystal ball. Again it’s perfect as a gift, or a treat to yourself! This comes in at £30 with free UK postage. You can find the detailed listing on eBay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132310239265?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Lastly, we have a standard small gamer chest. These contain 20 coin counters, and a full set of gaming dice. these smaller boxes are ideal to keep your various gaming trinkets inside, or for whatever use you’d like. This hand finished box is available for £18 (again with free UK P&P) and can be found here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132310243617?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

If you’d like to take a closer look at these fine wares, click on the links and it will take you to the eBay page of the product. Also, like I said before, I’m not really taking up new commissions for these (for those of you after custom pieces that is) but may be tempted if you are after something that sounds like it’d be interesting to make (then I may be interested in doing it) reasons being, my time is limited and these take up more than I’d like.

I’ll also apologise for any overseas readers who might be interested, so that being said, I might consider international shipping and purchase, but I would need to sort out shipping prices and insurance etc. Get in touch and we’ll have a chat, but I’m not promising anything (Gimme a good incentive, that might work!)

I’ll be putting some more stuff up over the next few days, lots of 40k books and so on, so keep your eyes peeled!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tikki Trolls Tribe Miniatures Mortal Arrow Kickstarter

15 Jun

I just have to point you to these unique troll miniatures from Mortal Marrow Miniatures. Given a Tiki theme to differate them from the normal trollish miniature offerings that are out there, a full tribe, if not a full war horde of these can be put together with all the individual options available here.

I am an avid troll mini collector (and I’ve covered other articles with a troll theme before like Big Bastards, and my two headed Troll sculpt and so on, if you’re interested!) and if I had spare funds going, I certainly would be backing this one. They are extremely old school, while still being different enough to be unique to stand on their own. What I like about the indie mini industry is that even so we see the same tropes used, again and again, the interpretation of the themes are sometimes totally different and ends up for making some really special models.

This monstrous pedipalp here from the project is a great figure, and shows the free thinking of Mortal Arrow with their regard to creating. I’d also suggest that you check out Mortal Arrow’s website too (http://www.mortalarrow.com/) and see some their other stuff and background fluff to go with their ranges, which is a jolly good read!

Go and find out more from either the link below to visit the KS project page, or like I said above, check their website and see what you think! There’s plenty of time to decide if you want to become a backer, but make no mistake, the project is funded so they’ll be going into production for those wanting their own Tiki Trolls! Well done guys!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Pantheon of Chaos (Chapter 2), 28mm Old Skool Chaos Miniatures

15 Jun

Ok, my apologies for missing yesterday’s post in this “post a day” month, but things were out of my control. I’ll make up for that today with two posts, the first being this really great looking retro “Realm of Chaos” inspired KS.

For those of you old enough to remember GW’s old “Realm of Chaos” stuff from the 80’s & early 90’s, these are very much of their ilk, a perfect throwback to the glory days of all things Oldhammer.

There are some cracking miniatures up for grabs here in this campaign, the picture above just shows a small selection of what’s available, so you’ll need to check out the project page for details of more chaos loveliness they are offering! What I really like is that the style is spot on, and apes the presentation style from things like the old White Dwarf ads and publications of that era.

Get over to the page and check this project out, seriously! There are some beautiful stuff here, and if you are serious about a chaos army for your own games, there will be lots here to tempt you into owning some of these fantastic minis!!
