More sniper progress.

This week has seen a little more progress on the Halfling snipers.

Obviously, I have to start from scratch when it comes to getting my work onto the market at levels beyond a single miniature so I have purchased postal boxes, bubble wrap, plastic bases and am currently awaiting the arrival of some labels.

In addition, there is the need to display a product so that people can actually see what you are trying to sell. With this in mind, I have also ordered a light box so that I can try and get some better pictures put together.

I have also unpacked all of the miniatures for counting:

As you can see, there are 245 Halfling snipers (49 sets of 5) all ready to have a bit of a quality check. That means that one set has disappeared. That is because I couldn't resist getting some paint on some of them and I have painted up a set to show off (it will also be part of an army project that I have going on at the moment):

The picture above shows why I really need a decent light box to photograph my products. I have chosen the colours so that the bases contrast the camouflage so that you can see what the miniatures are like. Obviously, when given a decent base with colours that match the camouflage you chose, they will look far more appropriate.

Everything is getting closer to fruition so keep watching this space.

A small sniper update.

This Friday saw the arrival of my Sniper casts from Hysterical Games.

I have only checked one set of casts so far but the quality is exceptional. There was a small amount of 'fluff' on them (which I removed with a toothbrush) and barely any other clean up... out of all five miniatures, there was a tiny line on one boot and one rifle scope... which were both removed in seconds with a scrape of a scalpel.

I'd like to say a big thanks to Rob over at Hysterical Games for his excellent work and timely delivery.

Obviously, I need to go through all the casts but from what I have seen, the casting is fantastic and the details have been reproduced really well.

Here's the one that I checked:

That same set is the one that has now been cleaned up, washed in soapy water and based; ready to be primed and painted.

At the moment, life has thrown a bit of a curve ball at me (family illness) and there is likely to be a bit of a delay in getting these available to sell (for a start, I don't have boxes to send them out in, yet) but rest assured, I will get it sorted as soon as I am able.

Keep an eye out for more updates soon.

A small beginning.

This is the first post for my new venture.

I have been sculpting for a long time and thought it was about time to try getting a few miniatures out there to share. I sculpt in the 28mm heroic size, so these miniatures should fit in with a lot of miniatures already on the market. Some of my sculpts will be components to fit in with existing ranges but mostly, I will try to put my complete sculpts out there.

So far, I don't have anything for sale but I am gearing up for it. In the pipeline are:

Components: Exo Armour legs (these are designed to fit on the GW Tartaros Pattern, Terminators in order to reduce them down to Space Dwarf size):

Miniatures: Halfling Snipers:

Miniatures: Ogre Sniper (Very Work in Progress at the moment):

As you can see, it's early days yet... and I haven't decided how to go about the process of selling yet but every journey starts with a single step.

Watch this space.
