Ha or maybe its some sort of clever reverse psychology? :P .. or not xD

Spincasting resin? Sounds good Seb - i thought that wasnt easy due to the lightweight nature of the resin. Although I remember Ed Fortae from canada saying he got it working. Single mould pouring takes a long time =/
Yea bases are out, just ran out of resin so cant cast any more for a day or two until the new order arrives <.<

Reverse, inverse, converse, diverse.. whichever way, everyone gets to base miniatures without chopping up a finite resource to do so :)

A friend of mine who builds very large resin models has a small spin caster for his finer parts, within a vacuum tank - he's the engineer so I'll leave it at layman description. I actually recall him chatting with Ed about parts for a mecha model in Ed's resilient resin brew.

Talking Fortae, I think I'll go check out his community's forum for new minis :)

I just wish I had more than a few spare bucks to my name each month. I would be buying minis, bases, and pretty much everything else you guys have to offer.
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.

Spincasters are suicide to the untrained. I died using one.

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.


Sorry Seb, I didn't get the notification e-mail. Thank you!

In addendum to my miniature work; posting this here as an update to the latest tile run available:

Image

This remastered series has been cast in GW Forgeworld quality resin, already trimmed, cleaned and ready to ship - you just need to put a miniature on top, basecoat and paint away.

I've got three sets of 4 bases left, after sending out to a list of private collectors; so if anyone is interested scoot me a PM. I can do more in future based on interest (ba-dum-tish).

Checkout my recent work here in my modelling thread..
