Derek Stenning’s Dystopic

imech_ek_announcement

Been a while since I’ve posted about this Derek Stenning/Born in Concrete release. 3D artist Gene Campbell has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on the 3D and now he’s ready for print with a tentative August 2012 release date. Because we’ll be doing a series of Derek’s figures in  a large 1/6 scale, (a female release next) the concrete base-chunk from the painting was done away with in favor of a larger orb base with a flat bottom. The concrete base was done in 3D, but the high print cost and sheer size of it (3/4 of the entire kit bulk) would make the kit not very affordable. (plus the international shipping would be excessive due to the estimated over 4lb weight) The three of us decided to focus instead on the figure portion of the kit and provide a base-type that can be used throughout the series and look nice together.

The plan is for the orb-base to be produced hollow for reduced kit and shipping costs. The modeler can then fill the orb with weights of their choice in order to have a stable platform for the off-centered figure pose.

As you an see in these hi-res renders, Gene has added a lot of great texture detail to the 3D model. I think that surface texture detail will make this will be a joy to paint and display. Price: TBD
