WIP: World of Rivals Cog Automaton

Clunking out of the abyss lumbers an automaton of the Cog Empire.

Well this is exciting! Here at Technasma we’re amongst the first people in the world to own this miniature. I was lucky enough to be sent a 3D printed prototype of this World of Rivals: Masters of the Deep miniature by entering a competition via their Instagram.

As a rapid prototype, it’s a little rough around the edges, but undeniably an awesome mini. This week I’ll be breaking out the file and putty to get this guy ready for painting. The models themselves are quite large (see shot below for reference with a £1 coin) and present an interesting challenge to paint.

The Masters of the Deep miniatures have a cartoon style to them with lots of smooth curves and flat surfaces. Some of the characters have a chibi-vibe with big heads and exaggerated proportions. Coolest of all is the game’s nautical Steampunk art direction!

Keep posted to see how I paint up this mini. I’m currently deliberating whether to go for full brass with steampunk metallics, Non-Metallic Metal or try a more cell-shades look like the Necrons we’ve done…

You can see more about World of Rivals via their Instagram and be sure to check out their relaunched Kickstarter that goes live tomorrow!
