BOSS SHOP: DUNE - HOUSE CORRINO - PROJECT OVERVIEW

HOUSE CORRINO is the most Evil Faction in the entire DUNE Universe, however I would venture to say they are also the most palatable Bad Guys. The scheming, limitless greed, and royal arrogance of Emperor Shaddam IV is perversely charming and legendary! It is important to me to make the Emperor's DEATH TROOPS elegant and evil looking and awesome in my DUNE Miniatures Game!


Ole hippy activist Frank described almost nothing in his sleepy novels. I call it Dune-fog-vision. Cool things are happening but feel free to imagine just about anything visually. A happy consequence of Frank's vague space drama narrative is that we get to see a million versions of The DUNE Universe!

In the decades past the DUNE novels first publication DUNE has been wonderfully illustrated! These modern artist did what Frank could-would not do. I have found much to ponder and enjoy while researching! You can barely find art that is consistent in design, but some of it is similar in the basic vision of the concept. Look up any character or the beloved worms; you will find great variation, and I like it, because much of it is well done.

The Dune-fog-vision has made it easy for me to use the models and miniatures that I like and that look the way I want them to look. I am happy to report that I have found great models that matchup with what I see when reading the wonderful DUNE Novels. With GW being inspired by Classic Sci-Fi properties like DUNE and the wild selection available on Etsy this new adventure has been a lot of fun.


When you search around for Sardaukar you will find dozens of designs... and about six of them look great. I love the more modern hard-mean look so of course I will be purchasing several GW Scions and other fun models!

As I planned my DUNE Miniatures Game I did a lot of NEW Research since I recently started reading the Brian Herbert main storyline Dune Universe Prequel Novels. I looked at what other DUNE enthusiast have done with scratch and limited release/converted miniatures and models too!

NEW HARKONNEN ASSUALT TROOPERS! (Orlock Arms Masters and Wreckers)

I am very happy to report that the HEROIC NEW HARKONNEN ASSAULT TROOPERS are almost ready to join in our valiant efforts to control The SPICE! The rapid deployment capabilities of our Harkonnen Wreckers will keep The Atreides and Fremen Scum at bay and under Harkonnen domination! 

I will be preordering these next week: THE SPICE MUST FLOW!

HARKONNEN BOSS out!

BOSS SHOP: DUNE - FREMEN - PROJECT OVERVIEW

I love The FREMEN! These serious heros are in the top three of my Sci-Fi Good Guys fan-book! HOUSE HARKONNEN is the most hated Evil Faction in the entire DUNE Universe. It is the glory of The DUNE Universe that presents us with one of the best balancings of the karmic scale with the mighty FREMEN! In these wonderful Dune stories we get an equally awesome group of badass true heroes to oppose true evil! The Jedi (who come from The Fremen and The Weirding Way) are close in coolness but the Fremen are more believable in my view. I LOVE THEM! They are inspiring to me, and many others, from what I know of the fandom. It is important to me to make these wonderful everyman icons awesome in my DUNE Miniatures Game!

When you search around for Sandworms or 'thopters you will find over a hundred designs... no really you will. I love the more modern hard-mean look so of course I will be purchasing several GW FTOL APC's and other fun models!

The Vibranium Heist is another game expansion you may enjoy. I have not played it but after watching Nate's new demo video it looks fun. This was supposed to come out at the cons this year but as we all know nothing happened as it was supposed to this year. Thanks Nate for the dedicated content!
