Miniature Monday - Raging Heroes Style!

I don’t know about you, but I always find the sight of well painted minis battling it out over thematic terrain an inspiring sight. So seeing these photos from legendary painter, blogger, hobby guru and all round splendid chap, James Wappel really makes me want to get a game in!

James’s photos show the Kurganova sisters valiantly defying the odds, holding off a murderous horde of incoming Blood Vestals, accompanied by Skaarlys.

The scenic bases James has made really show off the Blood Vestals, giving you great sense of them moving, leaping, weaving and spinning with a beautiful, but deadly grace.

He’s done an absolutely cracking job on the Kurganova sisters, Ivanka, Malinka and Olga too.

I love the colour scheme and it works perfectly to unify the different sisters. One of the things that sometimes surprises people when they see our miniatures in person, is the amazing level of detail we manage to achieve on our casts, and James has done a great job of capturing it!

For more of James’s awesome work, check out his blog bit.ly/Blogwappel

The miniatures shown in these photos are all available in our shop:
Admiral Olga Kurganova
Kommander Malinka Kurganova
Kapitan Ivanka Kurganova
Void Elves Skaarlys
Void Elves SF Blood Vestals Command Box
Void Elves SF Blood Vestals Troop Box

If you’ve got any Raging Heroes projects on the go, I’d love to see them, so please get in touch with me at jon@ragingheroes.com and let me know what you’re getting up to.

Cheers,

Jon

Raging Contest DAY 14/14: WIN Tania Tanker, Tank Specialist (JB)

Raging Contest DAY 14/14: WIN Tania Tanker, Tank Specialist (JB) - bit.ly/TaniaT

Day 14 of 14 is here! The final contest miniature is revealed and while it wouldn't be fair to say we've saved the best till last, Tania is certainly one of my personal favourites. I love her “We Can Do It!” pose, rolling up her sleeves and saying if you want something done right, do it yourself :-)

An all-round mechanical genius, Tania has been instrumental in keeping the Jailbirds motor pool running. Not one to hide at the back, Tania is often seen on missions too, where her knowledge has proved invaluable on countless occasions.

Want to know where to hit a tanker to take out the truck but save the fuel? Ask Tania. Need to force a prison transport to stop without harming the passengers? Ask Tania. Need to work out what that weird metal box, with the buttons and flashing lights on is that you stole on the last raid? Ask Tania... and stop pressing the buttons till you do!

To enter, follow the link bit.ly/TaniaT, click on the Review Tab and enter a Comment letting us know which unit and game you'd use her in.

Don't want to wait for her? Well then buy her now with 10% off until Jan 31! But what if I buy her, then I win her? Well, then it gets even better. If you win, you’ll get a store credit for double her value. Yes, double!

Check out our page bit.ly/ElektraE to enter yesterday's contest and check back tomorrow for a new model to win!

The winner will be selected in the week of Feb 8, 2016, please read the the contest rules here.

Raging Contest DAY 13/14: WIN Commander Elektra Eisenstein, Armoured Division (KST)

Raging Contest DAY 13/14: WIN Commander Elektra Eisenstein, Armoured Division (KST) - bit.ly/ElektraE

It’s the penultimate day of our contest, 13 days have passed and only 1 remains. As we reach this end of days, (I’m going for drama, ok), it’s a time for heroes, a time for true leaders to step forward, a time for fiery speeches, for raging against the dying of the light!

A great leader must have an iron will and an unshakable faith in their orders. The smallest hint of doubt from a poor general can be all that’s needed to break an army, quickly spiralling out of control and crushing the morale of a force. By contrast, a great leader can inspire their forces to achieve the impossible, fixing bayonets when the ammo runs out, charging instead of retreating, leading 100 against 1000!

Commander Elektra Eisenstein is one of these leaders. Her calm, but stoic pose, is characteristic of confident and pragmatic attitude. The sword, held with a casual ease, lets you know that when the fighting starts and the battle lines meet, she’ll be there. The wolf pelt adoring her shoulders isn't a vain embellishment, but an inspiration to those around her, ensuring that in blood, mud and smoke her soldiers know she is still with them and victory is still within reach. A true Raging Hero!

To enter, follow the link bit.ly/ElektraE, click on the Review Tab and enter a Comment letting us know which unit and game you'd use her in.

Don't want to wait for her? Well then buy her now with 10% off until Jan 31! But what if I buy her, then I win her? Well, then it gets even better. If you win, you’ll get a store credit for double her value. Yes, double!

Raging Contest DAY 12/14: WIN Punky, Army Standard (JB)

Raging Contest DAY 12/14: WIN Punky, Army Standard (JB) | Raging Heroes - bit.ly/PunkyJB

It's Day 12 of the contest and there must be something in the water, because things are getting nuts!

The Jailbirds are a rowdy bunch of fearless, bad-ass warriors with nothing to lose. When this wild force heads into battle, it takes a special kind of crazy to ride at the front, carrying the army's standard into the heart of the action... and that's exactly where you'll find Punky!

Raging Contest DAY 11/14: WIN Jaheda Kano, Armoured Division Officer (KST)

Raging Contest DAY 11/14: WIN Jaheda Kano, Armoured Division Officer (KST) bit.ly/Jaheda

It's day 11 and Jaheda Kano, the esteemed armoured division officer from the Kurganova family is up for grabs.

Characters like Jaheda are well suited to a variety of roles. Is she standing in the turret of her tank, momentarily distracted from her binoculars by a sound in a nearby building? Is she part of Elektra Eisenstein's command squad, personally directing artillery strikes? Has she crept from her camp in the cool night air, sneaking ahead of the main army to check the terrain before tomorrows battle? However you plan to use her, we'd love to know!

To enter, follow the link bit.ly/Jaheda, click on the Review Tab and enter a Comment, telling us which unit and game you'd use her in.

Really bad at waiting? Want her now? Well, not only is she available to buy, she's also got 10% off until Jan 31! Fear not though, if you end up winning her, you’ll get a store credit for double her value! Yes, double!

Anyway... awful jokes aside, today we've got 2 boxes up for grabs! Both the Iron Storm Command Group and Iron Storm Troops boxes feature our multipart, ball-joint assembly system miniatures, giving you a huge range of assembly options and making them a great choice to build up a new squad or a complete army.

Raging Contest DAY 9/14: WIN Raven, The Chainbreaker (JB)

Raging Contest DAY 9/14: WIN Raven, The Chainbreaker (JB) - bit.ly/RavenJB

Day 9 is upon us and this one is a biggie. The Jailbirds are a bunch of low-life, bad-ass, big-attitude girls, so there's no prizes for guessing what kind of person it takes to lead them! Raven, The Chain Breaker, was a gladiator slave, fighting for a powerful family within the Kurganova realm. Rising through the arenas, Raven made a name for herself and became famous for her hard fought victories.

Seeking freedom from the Kurganova prison planet for her cohorts, she used her status to instigate the 'Raven Uprising', the first episode in a series of the massive jail breaks. Raven not only led the escape, but managed to unite her Jailbird comrades in a series of daring raids against Kurganova military supply depots; forming a small but potent army who have vowed to harass the Kurganova forces until all of their prisons are empty.

Day 7 of our contest and I feel sick. Maybe my girlfriend was right when she said I shouldn't be eating leftover pizza for breakfast? If only there was a doctor somewhere. You know, a nice, friendly, helpful, medical professional, with a great bedside manner and perhaps a nice cup of tea...
