a little delay and a little bit of drama later, well a lot of drama later I am ready to start the master mould and production. The drama? Well , I'll not start, as Ill go on, however I used a new company for a one off sculpt. Well two sculpts. It was before I knew my normal mould expert (who is brilliant) could do a shared mould. I wanted just a couple of copies of each figure for conversions. Very cheap as I only paid for share. Anyhow, after several excuses about delays it turns out they lost the two sculpts!....see I did start...its really got me annoyed!
In fairness it looks like the company I used, were messed about by a third party company and have offered to replace both miniatures and costs. So I hope to have these re sculpted soon
The lesson.....I should ask my mentor at Black Hat Miniatures before jumping in with something else!
Anyhow, back to my production. I have in the process of production
Light weapons support
4 gun teams. 2 x 2 man squads. One has plasma launcher, two have mini Gatling gun, one has shoulder launched multi purpose missile.
Heavy Gun Team
2 man crew with Grenade Launcher
2 man crew with Heavy Machine Gun
2 man crew with Heavy Gauss/Rail Anti Tank gun
I also have in the production mould some new weapons for the conversions I talked about a while back. These will be used for converting my current troops.The rifles will provide a more futuristic gun.
I also have some new heads for conversions. Again Ill use these for converting the troops. It will give them a more militia feel with a variation of mixed lower tech headgear
So whats missing....well the two sculpts for starts. First is the Commissioner and second was the ATG rail gunner /sniper. I'm annoyed as I may have to delay production release as I want a big one off release with full platoons etc on offer
nearly but not quite
