Dungeons of Doom III + Runequest Durulz Duck Knight

Greetings Fellow Delvers!

Here we are in the final week. What can I say, the support for this Kickstarter has been amazing! Here is the main Dragon Slayer Pledge Reward with 11 miniatures so far and more to come:

Dragon Slayer Pledge Reward.

I have never reached a point like this in a Kickstarter where I have felt so much passion for (and been committed to) sculpting some of the most wonderful miniatures for you. As you can tell, I really enjoy sculpting. I thank God for this new skill and honestly, there is a satisfaction that comes from creating what my beloved wife calls "little men".

So what's been going on? Well, it's lambing season and we got another set of twins this morning... oh, and we also unlocked Drake, a duck that was inspired by the Durulz from Runequest. Funny thing is, Jennell Jaquays - legendary artist and game designer - found my post on Facebook and shared it. To be complimented by her was an unexpected surprise! However, it was her art that inspired my sculpt...

It was this art by Jennell Jaquays that inspired me to sculpt Drake.

I didn't really know the history of how ducks became part of Runequest but it appears that Archive Miniatures produced a Barbarian Duck and his Lady (before Runequest). Later, Greg Stafford and his friends added the Ducks/Durulz to Glorantha so people could use these miniatures in their games!

I had a lot of comments on Facebook and here on Kickstarter about Howard the Duck, mainly the rather weird movie from 1986. Here is the comic that inspired that Duck Barbarian miniature (from 1976!)

Howard's First Appearance in Marvel Comics (with Red Sonja and Spiderman!)

Ducks aside, the next Legendary Hero is bound to make a splash!

7 days to go! Please continue to spread the word on your Social Media - There are updates on the Facebook page:

Let's Unleash The Dragon together before the week is done!

God bless you and enjoy your gaming!
