Most excellent spiffing stuff there sir!

I feel I must demand a step by step on the pieces of furniture, in the interests of all that is good and wonderful in the HQ world.

Really really great stuff, and love the old Goblins, I remember buying the Fantasy Regiments box set waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when I was first getting into miniatures.

Would you ever submit to having these used to create molds? Their paint jobs would probably remain intact, though they'd require another couple layers of sealant and the use of mold release when molded.

step by step? ha! I make this stuff up as im going. what furniture have I got left to do? treasure chests, alchemists bench, altar and fireplace? hmmmm take you pick! ill do step by step on one of them. maybe alchemists bench as that will end up with lots of neat details and cover most of the basics?

lol not sure its amazing, ive seen some amazing stuff out there, my take on them yes. I feel many others could better mine most definitely. but thank you for the compliment.

none of these were really made to be cast to be honest. maybe only the throne would work without a considerable amount of filling required as I don't think the others would cast well due to hollows in areas and such.. I like to think everything everyone makes is their own contemporary creations. casting would somehow detract away from the whole personal creation. so to answer that question. no I doubt I would. I would more so love for these to inspire others to follow suit and create their own. we all love seeing peoples unique creations after all :)

Just to add to the list of praise.. These are some truly beautiful works. Even if I knew how you did it and had enough time to try I'm sure I couldn't make them half as good. Greta stuff.

This is quite the inspiring topic. I am going to reverse-engineer a few of the above designs, and then craft some approximate replicas using hirst-arts bricks (wooden planks, nail-boards, etc). With any luck I'll be able to come upon some quick n' dirty methods that anyone can use. I actually do have some of the bits used in the above pieces, and also many thousands more (about 2 liters or so).
