On Monday we looked at some random fish people that were given to me by a relative. These were the Black Sun Frogs made for Pulp Figures. When I received them I didn’t know what they were, so I researched them. In my searches however, I found something that I wasn’t looking for. What Bob Ross would call a happy accident.
I started by searching for Black Sun Miniatures. Even though I didn’t find the fish men I was searching for I did find some stunning miniatures. So today I’d like to do a little spotlight on these beautiful pieces.
Black Sun Miniatures creates a wide range of Fantasy and Sci-fi miniatures in many different scales. They do 30mm, 35mm, 54mm, and 75mm. They do both figures and terrain pieces in these scales. All of which are absolutely stunning ranges. Let’s take a look at some of the awesomeness these people have produced.
When I first started browsing their site I thought “Go big or go home” so I looked at their 75mm range. The first figure that stood out to me, of course, was this bad ass sci-fi ork that they call Tuskar.
The next figure that drew my eye was this awesome robot. The little boy on the base makes for a really cool atmosphere to this figure. I’m not sure what sci-fi world this comes from, but it looks wicked cool. Everything about this piece makes me feel happy inside.
Heading into the 30mm range I found some really cool stuff. Obviously their catalogue is too extensive for me to show you all of their stuff, but I really wanted to show this one. The creepy factor to this model gave me shivers. I’m considering using this model in some fashion for a Slaanesh army.
The fact that it has one breast and one peck really goes in line with Citadel’s Daemonettes. It would stand slightly taller than your standard daemonette at 30mm but I’d be ok with that. I don’t think the scale would make it look wierd.
Finally I wanted to show off some of the awesome resin terrain they produce as well. The amount of detail on these is stunning. I can really get into the creepy aesthetic of their pieces. Definitely worth adding to your collection if you’re not into scratch building stuff. These terrain pieces would be just as good for Warhammer as they would be for a Cthulhu RPG.
Black Sun also does a wide range of busts which are absolutely stunning. Sadly there is not enough time to show you guys every awesome figure in their catalog. If you want to check them out click HERE.
I’d also be interested in hearing about other lesser known miniature companies. If you have any gems that you want to share feel free to email me at email@example.com or leave me a comment below. You can also contact me on our Facebook or Instagram pages.
Until our next Encounter!
