FeR Miniatures Latest New Releases (Feb 16th)

FeR Miniatures Latest New Releases (Feb 16th)

Hi all!
Yes, you guessed it, we have new releases! But before showing them to you, we would like to explain a small change of format we are going to try in the way we release new stuff. As you know, we use to make a several-miniatures release every month; that means we need to have everything ready for a certain moment (or as we call it, “the warp opening window of opportunity”). Let’s be really honest about it: it is a bit of stress for everyone involved as sometimes is really difficult to make all things concerning production, painting, design, etc. match at the same time. Add to that the increasing number of new releases we are having (and that we have planned for the year) and you get a situation in which that decisive monthly action involves every time more work and resources.

So, keeping in mind that we are a small company and our work resources are not unlimited, we have decided to release our new miniatures in a WEEKLY BASIS. It means that we’ll have the same amount of new miniatures, but instead of releasing, let’s say 5, in a particular day of the month, we are going to release them during the whole month. That way we’ll have all the time to concentrate on every single release and showcase it as it deserves, we will avoid delaying the whole release lot just because something is not ready and everything would be easier from a logistics point of view. Maybe one week we won’t release anything or maybe we release 2 figures, depending of the volume of things ready at that point, we’ll see.

In any case, just wanted to keep you all updated, as you know that communications with the customers are very important for us. Let’s check those new minis!

First one is a nice Confederate Officer for Fahrenheit Miniature Project:

Fahrenheit Miniature Project
FAH00017 – Confederate Artillery Officer, Gettysburg, 1863

1

Sculpture: Eduard Pérez
Painting: Fernando Ruiz
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 8
Scale: 75 mm

The second release is something we already have shown some previews about, but that now is fully available. This project is the first one of a collaboration between Romain Van Den Bogaert and Ben Komets:

Signature Series: Romain Van Den Bogaert
ROM00003 – Agvaldr Long-nose

1

Sculpture: Romain Van Den Bogaert
Painting: Ben Komets
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 32 (torso and head plus LOTS of fungus and mushrooms)
Scale: 1/10

As most of you know, Ben Komets has his very own venture running in the shape of a fantastic Patreon page. That page is a really useful tool for those miniature painters that want to bring their skills a step further. Full of painting guides and video tutorials, Ben’s Patreon has quickly become the reference point in online miniature painting teaching.

Ben will be in charge of painting Romain’s works and he will use some of them to demonstrate techniques in his usual tutorials and videos. As part of the deal, Ben patreons will have a exclusive 20% discount during the first month of sale of these miniatures.

So, if you are a fan of Romain’s sculpts and you want to have access to all the teachings and guide offered by Ben, plus a nice discount on the purchase of the models, sign up today on Ben’s Patreon and start enjoying this opportunity!

And that is all for the moment. Next week we’ll have more stuff, in the shape of something historic, classic and cool 😉
See you soon!

New cool collaboration for this month!

New cool collaboration for this month!

Hi all!
While we give the final touches to some exciting new stuff for February’s releases (ETA, late next week), we want to give you a preview of a cool collaboration we have devised for one of our independent artists lines.

What can be nicer than a line of fantastic busts sculpted by Romain Van Den Bogaert? Well, a line of fantastic busts sculpted by Romain Van Den Bogaert AND masterfully painted by Ben Komets!
Both artists are incredibly talented and we already have seen before the chemistry of their combined work on a miniature, and as they are also good friends, coming up with this idea was actually pretty evident.

The first project that will be part of this collaboration is this fantastic new sculpt, that will be released this month. Check a bit of a preview:

FeR Miniatures October New Releases… and a couple of surprises for SMC!

FeR Miniatures October New Releases… and a couple of surprises for SMC!

Hi all!
This month is being really busy, thankfully we’ll have the chance to meet up with the friends and relax a bit this upcoming weekend at Scale Model Challenge! But, first of all, lets talk about the new releases 😉

The first one is a new XVII century work by Eduard Pérez.

Fahrenheit Miniature Project
FAH00015 – “Le Cavalier”

1

Sculpture: Eduard Pérez
Painting: Jaume Ortiz
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 9 plus photoetched parts
Scale: 75 mm

A really nice kit that includes a novelty for the company, photoetched parts! This kind upgrade allows a very nice degree of detail on tiny parts like the spurs, sword lace and such, that would be almost impossible for a just resin (or metal) kit.

We also have the first two figures from the new collaboration line of Romain Van Den Bogaert!

0

Signature Series: Romain Van Den Bogaert
ROM00001 – The Old Count

1

Sculpture: Romain Van Den Bogaert
Painting: Romain Van Den Bogaert
Material:  Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 1
Scale: 1/10


Signature Series: Romain Van Den Bogaert
ROM00002 – Grok the Marauder

1

Sculpture: Romain Van Den Bogaert
Painting: Romain Van Den Bogaert
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 4
Scale: 1/10

We are really happy to finally show you these two. We will show you the painted version very soon (by Romain himself!), as he prefers to show them first unpainted to appreciate the detail of the bare sculpt.

So these are the releases for October but… wait, there’s more!

As this weekend we’ll go to SMC in The Netherlands, we wanted to do something special for our friends and customers going there. The first idea was like “OK, let’s give an overall discount just for the show” and, “Well, we also are the ones carrying the Nutsplanet sales table there, let’s extend that discount to their miniatures too”. So, the result is that you will have a 10% discount in ALL FeR Miniatures and Nutsplanet products during the weekend.

Sin-título-1

Even if we know that discounts are appreciated, we thought “Mmm… Too easy. Needs to be more interesting”. So, we’ve made an extra effort and prepared a very limited stock of two future releases, 50 of each, to be sold in advance only at this weekend at SMC!

The first one is this fantastic new bust for Women by Pepa Saavedra, nothing more and nothing less than the haunting Lady of the Lake in person!

Women, by Pepa Saavedra
WOM00004 – Viviane

1

Sculpture: Ramón Martínez
Painting: Pepa Saavedra
Material:  Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 4
Scale: 1/10

The other is possibly, the most anticipated comeback in the history of the miniature hobby. This one needs no presentation…

Elite Classics
ELI00005 – Highland Clansman Veteran

ELI00005

Sculpture: Raúl García Latorre
Painting: Marc Masclans
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 12
Scale: 70 mm

So. How does this works?
We’ll start selling these five new miniatures this weekend, at the SMC show in The Netherlands. The first 3 are the releases for October and also will be available from next Tuesday as usual (sorry, but if we want to guarantee a good customer service for them, we need to wait until our return before we start selling them). Viviane and the Clansman Veteran are a PRE-RELEASE edition, limited to 50 copies each just for the weekend. They won’t be available to the rest of the public until a future date yet to be determined, even if we return with any leftover stock. Let’s face it, we have to encourage attendance to shows, even if it means using some innocent blackmailing tactics, hehehe.

So, are you coming to SMC and you don’t want to risk missing them? We have opened a reservation list for picking up the kits there. Just send us an email to info@ferminiatures.com with your name, which figure you want (even both!) and how many you need (maybe you pick one for you and one for a friend). We will reserve you the kits so you just have to drop by and get them… of course, included in the discount offer!

IMPORTANT NOTE: All figures reserved and not yet claimed at Sunday afternoon (after lunch time) will be put on sale.

Looking forward to see you all there

A new kid in town… Say hi to Signature Series: Romain Van Den Bogaert!

A new kid in town… Say hi to Signature Series: Romain Van Den Bogaert!

Hi everybody!
We are cooking new exciting stuff around here (that will get announced next week) but, as we are really excited about it, we thought it would be cool to make some early announcement.
During the last months, we have been discussing about a possible new collaboration and line of miniatures with one of our favourite artists. It is a real pleasure and a privilege to announce… (drumrolls)…  the last addition to our team of independent artists… (wait for it!)… Signature Series: Romain Van Den Bogaert!

Logo ROMAIN VAN DEN BOGAERT_Negro

Besides being a very nice guy, Romain is also one of the best sculptors on the miniature’s industry. His incredibly personal style gives an instantly recognisable look to all his works that, somehow, manages to bring us to a place when fantasy becomes reality. Very few miniature sculptors manage to transmit the kind of realistic and, at the same time, particular feeling through their sculpts.

So, after talking about the possibility of a line of miniatures with him, we finally have things ready enough to start releasing his pieces. The first two will be released next week, along other new miniatures we are preparing for the upcoming SMC show in The Netherlands. For the moment, the only thing we’ll tell you is that you better prepare yourselves; there is really cool stuff around the corner 😉

Talk soon!
