COOL MINI OR NOT-RIVET WARS: EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING/DISPLAY
Completed: September 2014
A pair of miniature figures from the tabletop board game Rivet Wars: Eastern Front were scaled up to tower over their human makers. The board game features a combination of steampunk and WWI design elements. The tallest figure is 8' tall and the shorter figure is 5' tall. They are used as a photo-op at Cool Mini or Not's trade shows.
While the design concept and 2-D design were submitted to Monster City Studios, our in-house art department rendered both pieces in 3-D. The pieces are fabricated with custom interior steel armatures, engineered bearings, clad with 2 lb. EPS foam, coated with specially formulated polyurea and painted with exterior grade latex paint. The painting was produced to replicate the distinct style that war-gaming and miniature painters apply to their figures.
