Woodlanders Kickstarter from Cromarty Forge

As I pack the 1st boxes for the Woodlanders Kickstarter, I wanted to give a little friend a chance to say hello! This line will be my 1st foray into selling stls for figures. I'm aiming to get the full army out in August for download. If there is enough demand I'll use the proceeds from digital sales to fund the translation into a full metal line.

The "War Wagon" from Heroes Models

Some detailed photos of our brand new 1/144 V-100 model. The "War Wagon" is showing during a patrolling mission, the most common use of these vehicles during the Vietnam war. They often were used as convoys escort and airfields defense by military police. The model has the driver hatches opened and the two figures included.

Things have been a little quiet around Hydra HQ, but I have a really amazing sneak preview today: the Robot Legion Brainbot.

This tank-sized hovering robot helps to coordinate attacks by the Robot Legion forces. Super-sculptor Phil Phillip Beauchamp really outdid himself on this one! I can't wait to print this one out so we can cast it up. Totally Awesome!

Project Update #28: Kickstarter for 10mm Demon Infantry Miniatures from Black Gate Miniatures

Project Update #26: Kickstarter for 10mm Demon Infantry Miniatures from Black Gate Miniatures

Post Kickstarter Update 16

I am really starting to believe the end (of production) is near!

In the last couple of weeks I have finished the Demon Flyers, pictures below, and will pack those this week. Robi sculpted a variant Flyer, which cast up very easily, and I managed to get one copy of the "tricky" miniature per pack cast up. The Flyers come in packs of twelve, but I very much doubt you will be able to fit more than nine on their bases. In future, on the webstore, they will be sold in packs of nine.

Demon Flyers part 2

I have also completed casting the chariot hounds and two of the three crew figures. Picture below. I only have three more moulds to make and cast. The Chariots, wheels and the final crew member with a whip. Hopefully, this can be completed in the next couple of weeks. Then it will be done. Just invoicing, packing and posting to do.

Chariots work in progress

Thanks to everyone for keeping the faith.

Demons forever!

1/144 Scale Pilots from Heroes Models

1/144 scale pilots and figures are not so easy to find in the market. For this reason we continue to add new to our catalogue. This time two standing up military pilots and, for the first time, some civil and liner/executive pilots seated in flight, and also a woman! The last set is composed by two guys that maybe are starting to prepare their plane for a Sunday flight.

The End from P.G. Models

I’ve just got back from the post office and have sent off the last of the orders that I’ve had for kits in my former P G Models range.  I set myself a target of trying to send out all orders with in one month of receiving them, and I’m pleased to say that I have achieved that.  In just one week I received 40 orders for over 320 models, which is what would normally have been about four months work, all done within one month, although I am now completely knackered.

When you do metal casting you find that, especially with the first mould, some bits will cast up okay, and others do not.  So I cut off and kept all of the good parts, and used then for other castings where one of those parts has not come out.  You end up with quite an assortment of odd bits of metal.

The beauty of casting in metal is that any scrap, or odd bits, can be put back into the melting pot and melted down again for re-use.

You will get some surface oxidisation that forms a thin layer of dross that can be skimmed off, as I’m doing here in this photo.

I’ve been using an old ladle that holds around 300g of the metal.  It’s on the side of the meting pot, with the larger ladle inside the molten metal, running at around 290C.

The molten metal is poured into the smaller ladle.

And is then allowed to cool slightly,

I then moved it carefully onto a metal rule that acts as a heat sink, to cool down the metal.

Once set, the metal can be tapped out of the ladle.

By doing this, I am reducing a pile of bits into some compact lumps of metal that will be a lot easier to store so that I can cast up any other models as I want them.

I still have two orders for assembled models of the Mexeflote powered raft to make.  Once those are done I will finally have a chance to sit back and make some models just for me again, which is back to how this all started.

Seventh Stretch Goal Unlocked

Hello All,

I am very please to say, that in the last few hours of the project, the seventh stretch goal has just been unlocked. This means that the Centaur banner will be added to the Hero pack! Thanks for your continued support and backing. There is only one stretch goal left, and it is very close to being unlocked.

Production resin models are coming in now, so all is looking set for dispatch of miniatures in July. There is a photo of one of the dragon minis below with a viking chariot for scale (the model is quite big!).

 forest walls

Note that the forest walls are the feed for the dragon cast, these are a potential extra that I can't guarantee they will be on your mini when it arrives (I'll do my best).
