Welcome to the Baelor Miniatures section of the Armorcast forms. We are working hard to make the debut at Origins great! Matt and Steve have been terrific about getting figures cast and ready, getting me a logo and packaging, and of course working to get these figs out to the wider world.
Baelor is Clint Staples. I have been sculpting miniatures for several years and am vey grateful to Armorcast to allow me a venue to get some of the unique sculptures I envision into production. I am an avid gamer, of both RPG and tabletop minis.
The idea behind Baelor Miniatures is to bring you figures from the world I have written to give a home to some of the strange notions in my head. I have run an RPG in it. And have envisioned, and am working on a miniatures game for it. So I thought it would be cool to create the figures for the miniatures game.
The 'World of Shards' is home to the figures you will see in Baelor Miniatures. In brief, it is a world shattered an age ago by a monumental catastrophe. The shards of the world, scattered in the Abyss by the catastrophe, were saved from utter ruin, along with many of the creatures and the conditions for life, by a great spell that destroyed most of those who cast it - the wizards and gods of that age.
Now, the Shards exist a thousand years and more removed from that time. Powers have arisen from the ruins. New races, created in the catastrophe or in the time since, wander the Abyss. It is a vast space, with many unknown regions. To begin, Baelor wil focus on the Core and its enemies.
The Core traces its origins to the time before the Catastrophe, though in completely different form than the Core of the present. A cosmopolitan culture composed of many races, it constantly explores and expands, bringing new shards, new races, new materials, into itself. its Voidships are among the most advanced to be found. Its Tarkhan, are soldiers born into servitude, or taken in conquest, but well-trained in the ways of war and equipped with the wargear that only a powerful, expansionist power can grant.
More to Come . . .
