I had another question, have you thought about producing any bases bigger than 1x1? For example, if I were to add a Rat Ogre to my game, I am likely to need a 1x2. There aren't many other sizes that I can think of, but I am curious if this has been a consideration in the past. Also, looking forward to being a customer some day, as I have just rejoined the world of the employed. Huzzah!
Sure it's pretty scary when the witch lord returns but what you should really be afraid of is "Resurrection of the Witch Lord". Resurrected baddies always come back more threatening than ever, usually kind of demonic with wings and horns and hell fire to announce their arrival. Think Gannondorf or Mother Brain from Super Metroid.

Just placed an order. Soon enough my paladin and my Dark elf and Sorceress and Barbarian will be based. 14 days for shipping from Australia. Should have my character Cards for my female team to me any day now and i will post pics in this thread once they are totally done. I think it is a fitting name "Outworld" for outworld minis coming into HQ world. Awesome product, and best of luck.

Thanks Mako-Heart, I'm waiting on Gimme's efforts, he received his recently too. I'll add some of my modified miniatures to the Original Post also as examples.

Look forward to your additions soon! :)

Thanks for the heads up, looking forward to it.

Looks like the last of them too, won't be producing anymore with Thantos' cheaper bases on the way :)

These are nice two part castings, i think if people want quality bases for a little extra cash - they should get these. Mine are 1 part and may need sanding or filling after all.

@Infje
All of them I take it? :D

Advanced Heroquest Henchman, with modifications (head, arms, weapons), Advanced Heroquest Knight with arm swaps, Fantasy Regiments Plastic Dwarf with extra detail parts.

Old school era Warhammer 90's Beastman Gor, you can still find these occasionally online - I came across all three in one auction, so count myself fortunate.

Wood Elf Waywatcher, 90's and an 80's Warhammer Templar. Occasionally I see this model on eBay, usually as "Empire Fighter"

The two orcs; one is the shaman from Uglud's Armored Orcs regiment and the other is an 80's Orc Champion figure. They matched the Heoquest orcs so well it was a no brainer to pick them up.

@Mako
Very cool :D I actually have the sorceress on the end, however she is setup on a round base for DnD. Thanks for posting them up!

@Thantos
Thank you for the compliment Thantos, I use a two part mould with sprue, spin cast. I have to watch out for concavity on the underside mostly.

Should folks want more, I'll spin casts up, right now all I have left are what I feel are rejects; bases I can use personally with some minor touch ups - but wouldn't expect a customer to have to deal with air holes, concavity issues and broken edges :)

So your bases are out Thantos?? I've had to skim your thread and saw no images?

thanks all!
Sebastian.
