So the guys at Backspindle Games have finally got their hands on the 3d masters of the figures for the MourneQuest board game and I have to say the pic looks fantastic. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a hands on look over the holidays for a closer inspection. It’s been so exciting waiting to see the final versions of my sculpts, produced from John Farrelly’s artwork and sculpted in Blender. Roll on May-(ish) for the release.
So here’s the MourneQuest Kickstarter Campaign page, if you want to get over there quick and get your pledge in before they run out! Created and designed by Backspindle Games and based on Garry McElherron’s MourneQuest books, all the other info is on the Campaign page, and on Backspindle’s Facebook page. I worked on the artwork for the board, coloured up John Farrelly’s character designs and sculpted the collectible miniatures from his designs. It’s the first time I’ve sculpted minis for a game, so it was quite exciting being able to actually see them ‘in the flesh’ I’ve also painted a whole set of them, all 14. I will share them on here eventually, but the only place to keep up to date with it all is over the on the Campaign page for now.
This is a digital painting I did a while back for Garry McElherron, based on one of his characters, Cob, from his MourneQuest book. As well as The Shimnavore, it was another collaboration with John Farrelly who originally did the pencil sketch, you can see over on John’s website.
Garry has since released the book on Lulu, and he’s used this as the cover illustration, very exciting. I’d advise going over and taking a look. It’s a great read, and seems set to being a best seller soon, once it becomes readily available in your nearest good bookshop. Keep an eye out for it.
