One of the highlights of our recent wave 2 Kickstarter campaign was when Shane Barnbrook went huge and pledged $5,000 to "Become a Hero!". It was a real shot in the arm for the campaign and meant Shane was able to collaborate with Judgement's designers, sculptors and illustrators, to create his very own hero. The result of this collaboration was the mighty Barnascus, dwarf pyromaniac! Similar to our wave 1 backer designed heroes, Barnascus introduces something different and pushes the Judgement team to move into new areas that add a lot of variety and colour to the game. Shane was an absolute pleasure to work with and everyone involved in the Barnascus project was absolutely over the moon with the results. For the record the Barnascus illustrator was Shane L Cook and the sculptor was Tom Lishman. Here is Barnascus in all his glory, congratulations Shane, you have been carved into the history books of Judgement! :)
The hapless goblin underneath Barnascus' tank is the world famous "Itchy Nads", who makes his first appearance in the Judgement universe, however it won't be his last...
Obviously, Barnascus is another hero from our WW1/2 time line and the first to be equipped upon a mechanical device, his own personal tank platform! Barnascus is a grizzled veteran of many battles and revels in the opportunity to fight against mighty heroes from a bygone era on the shadow plan of Between.
Shane's involvement in the creation of Barnascus was not just limited to the sculpt. He was also included in the design of Barnascus' in-game rules, and once again we were able to introduce some cool themes and abilities to represent this mighty dwarf on the battle field.
Barnascus is available as an add-on via our Kickstarter late pledges, and can be added to any existing pledge level.
Barnascus is the final sculpt, to be completed, from our wave 2 range! What an awesome collection of heroes and models we now have, and we are simply so excited about getting them manufactured and onto your table-top! Full steam ahead now!
