The Barbaric Splendor team on Kickstarter are looking towards new champions to lead you into an age undreamed of. Here we have some of their stretch goals they are hoping to unlock with six days to go…
The first piece you see above was unlocked at $2700 and is Ruga, the Steppe Barbarian. The concept art will lead to a sculpt by David Soderquist. I like that Eastern European flavour to the artwork here with the choice of boots and plenty of fur.
Next up we have the one that I’d love to see be unlocked, Borzyn The Brutal.
This chap looks like he might have embraced a bit of that Chaotic power from the North in his design. The sculpt also reminds me of The Feared from the Joe Abercrombie books, The First Law, a man who is only armoured on one side and yet is protected by magical tattoos on the other.
Lastly we have The Usurper Barbarian King.
While these miniatures might not be for everyone I could see people getting a lot of fun use out of these when it comes to role-playing games and helping to mix up the kind of units you bring to the table in a skirmish game.
Did you take a closer look at this one?
