Bubbles the spider trainer commands some of the most fearsome fighters in the army by use of special control crystals implanted into the spiders heads by means of some techno-magical secrets known only to the spider trainer cult.
These spiders are two different sculpts of a giant spider by Doti for Katsina miniatures. She has managed to combine some cute features with some real menace – the large size of the models helps in this regards.
I have painted them with very bright threat style markings that warn other creatures that this creature is deadly. It can afford to advertise it’s presence so any other creatures better watch out!
Bubbles is of course also one of Doti’s sculpts. He has been designed alongside the spiders and shares some of their creepy cute menace vibe. They are no slackers on the tabletop so far and have already sacked the shrine of Rigg at BOYL 2019. I expect great things from my spider force going forward and will probably have to get Doti to make some more of them as they are such great fun easy models to paint.
These are the master castings of Doti’s Frog Cat sculpts. Unfortunately the red one had a miscast ear, so we need to get him remastered before a production mould can be made for them. Frustrating as the other ones all came out perfectly. In this case as the ear was made from relatively soft green stuff it happened to collapse under the high pressure of the vulcanising press. Nothing for it but to rework the master again and make another master mould which all adds time to the process.
I got Doti to re-sculpt the ear on this master casting to match with the original so that we can at least paint the set to get some painted up for photos.
They are a cool looking bunch of cats. I like that each of them has a very distinct personality – just like real cats.
So I made these guys with the help of my missus, who made the weapons and many of the details, the talent of this woman is pretty obvious when you consider that these are the first pieces she has made. There are another 4 WIP, but they are not ready for their close ups :).

We will get these guys and their 4 buddies finished and run a quick funding campaign to get them made and sent out to interested parties.
I have set up a Facebook group to manage updates etc. Please join us at:
