XXI. Assembling the Cast - Adesi Haddonis

Adesi Haddonis concept art by Geng Gendall.
Designers Note: If you're savvy and have been following the blog you will notice that this exact same art was used for Marius Bickler - the Former Prod. In all honesty, I shoehorned the Marius Bickler story line onto this art and it worked until I got the sculpt he didn't have that grizzled feel. He seemed more like a young man. One of the original character concepts I had somehow seemed more appropriate for this subtly Abercrombie-esque masked man.

Adesi Haddonis always thought that being good looking was a benefit, until he got to the Ferrum Sky mines. A recent immigrant from another world, also known as a Drop, Adesi arrived with a toned body, well nourished, and lacking scars or other marks of a hard life. His unusual state drew interest and speculation from both fellow miners and the Prods.  It was clear that he came from a privileged background, but the tale of his transition from that life to one of hardship and deprivation sparked the imagination of his peers.
He does what he can to blend in by focusing on his work and speaking little. He wears his breather mask in the company of others when he can and hides behind dirt and grime when he cannot.  Few have seen his true face, but beneath his mask he has startling good looks. When he does speak he clearly has had education and training above that normally provided to the indentured masses. With his good looks, sharp wit and eloquent speech he could easily charm most folks. He has opted to treat that charm more as a concealed weapon, likely for fear of having it taken away by a few baton strikes or a quiet beating from his comrades in the middle of the night. Adesi does his best to keep his head down before anyone else feels the need to push it into the floor.

November 5: New Breaker Miniature Range Kickstarter!

In less than a week we will be running our next Kickstarter. This one is to fund the manufacture and expansion of our Breaker range of miniatures. If you've been following Breaker Press for a while, you've probably seen images of some of these sculpts appear over the last year and a half (yes, the gears grind slowly at Breaker Press). It is finally time to send them to the caster, but we need your help. We are starting things off with the two Gen-Mods that we've been sitting on for quite some time. These will be the basis for the Kickstarter campaign. The campaign is going to start small - we just need to raise enough money to cast and ship these two models.
If the campaign goes well, the Stretch Goals will be determined by you, the community. The first Survey went up and the first Stretch Goal will be for the female Breaker Crew Leader.
Hopefully, we can work our way through all of the concept art depicted on the ad at the top of this post, and then move onto some addit…

Getting Organized! May Objectives.

April was an exciting month and we've got a lot of plans coming up. Here's a list of projects and their status:
Children of FerrumSky (Broken Contract) At the end of April we shipped the first wave of Children of FerrumSky Kickstarter Rewards to our Backers. Even though we had plenty of boxes, shipping containers, stickers, labels, and thank you cards, I didn't double check the number of actual models we had on hand. I thought I ordered 60, and we only had 30. We shipped out everything we had on hand, but we still have half of our Backers waiting for their models to ship. Currently Valiant in Madison, Wisconsin are only casting pewter miniatures due to reduced staff (ie. just the two owners of the business). They are still prepping molds for resin models but resin miniature manufacture is more labor intensive and currently their production staff are observing Wisconsin's Safer at Home order. That being said, fresh molds have been ordered and as soon as they bring back…

Kickstarters You Should Know About!

I have a lot of friends doing a lot of cool stuff. One of those friends has a project that is currently on Kickstarter. It is called Ruin & Conquest and it is a system-agnostic campaign setting for whatever fantasy RPG you love. Brinton Williams has thrown his heart and soul into this tome and has gathered a whole host of top notch analog artists to bring his vision to gritty black ink on white paper. Go over to Kickstarter and check it out. The funding push will end on Friday October 26th, so don't sleep on it. Also, it looks like his Facebook group could use a boost too, so if you're on Facebook go Like Ruin & Conquest there.


I've never met Jason at Thunderchild Miniatures, but we both ran our first Kickstarters simultaneously a few years back and I have been following his work ever since. He is dedicated to his craft, that is for sure. His next Kickstarter launches this weekend, on Saturday October 20th. This time around he is releasing a miniature board game c…
