How to Get Your Jeff Goldblum Miniature Collection Jump Started ...

According to estimates, this year's Gen Con was packed with new games, as many as 560. Weve discussed some of the trends that we saw, including a surge in roll-and-write games and a chaotic wave of new party games. But there was another unusual item at the nations largest tabletop gaming convention: a tiny, beautiful plastic Jeff Goldblum.

Unmatched, the popular skirmish game that pits Hollywood heroes against historical figures, has recently dropped its latest set of Jurassic Park-inspired baddies. Ellie receives a small plastic token with a picture of Dr. Ian Malcom on it, which is completely incapable of containing his raw sexual energy.

Restoration Games purchased 10,000 plastic Ian Malcom miniatures, complete with a delicate ink wash, that it made available with pre-orders. Some of the miniatures were sold out before they could even put them aside for themselves. A few were available at their booth, but demand for the miniature was astonishing. Another batch is already on the way, and preorders are currently open.

Strata Miniatures is working on a whole set of gaming miniatures based on the popular Dark Dice actual play series, which will be released in October. Among them is a powerful elven sorcerer named Balmur, who is depicted by none other than Jeff Goldblum. The finished miniature by David Fisk, known on line as Dungeons and Dry-Gins, has a beautiful tattoo.

Fisk's chiseled good looks are encapsulated as well as his twinkle in the eye charisma, according to Polygon on Twitter. On a more serious note, I wanted to pay tribute to his cultural heritage and created a custom skintone mix just for him. Most miniature paint manufacturers skin tones are designed for Caucasian coloration, so it was an interesting challenge.

There are currently no Jeff Goldblum miniatures for tabletop gaming that are available for sale in the marketplace. But I'm confident that this issue will be resolved soon, since life has its way. In the meantime, Dr. Ian Malcom will be lounging on my desk until Warhammer TV presenter Louise Sugden gives me a proper instruction on painting these rock hard, glowing abs.

bud, you've got it.
