Mark,
I did buy one of the character packages - I couldn't help myself lol Hopefully, you have even more future characters for me! I am still waiting for my original purchase to arrive. We have had a tropical storm through this week so that may have been part of the delay. Oh well, that just means more Chines bandits for them to deal with - assuming that friends don't give me more sake :D

Lon,
I've had ban myself from painting the 'Egg' figure from the character set. Until I can get the urge to paint the 'Magic bomb' he's holding as a Pokémon ball. Out of my system. :D

Vodka they're with Simon, so I'm out of the loop.as far as a release date goes.

Whilst the footie was all pervasive my youngest has graduated from Tin tin, to Blake and Mortimer . So once again I'm commanded to prove figures to go with his Tin tin.
Here's the first thought on the subject.
Plus some more bits for Sally 4th.

(still at the fix stage. As This isn't my usual stomping ground I thought I'd see what people thought before committing to the rest.)

Are there you go Fram.Inspired by .. Not copy of.. ;)

In short they're chimeras of comic styles and film . So I'm taking the bits I like and seeing what happens. Plus I'm changing through them at N rate of knots. So I won't be a 100% happy until I've had a coupe of days off on something else,and then take a fresh look.

With Dugan behind them it kind of hints at the idea that was floating around my bonce.

Mark.

Not technically a new sculpt just dusted off and ready to be handed over for casting at Partizan.(it's been in a box for years just waiting for the casting list to get round to it.)
But I thought it was worth a mention as I've had to tweak the crew(not in the photos) and correct some age related issues.

Cool, how about a twin and triple mount?  Maybe a Crusader mount?!

I'm afraid that's not upto me. It's taken quite a long time for 1st corps .To go 'you know that Polston  ,well we'd like it now please.'
Poiter50 I think you've probably got a better idea than me on how long It's been gathering dust.
I normally receive a wish list of sculpts that I work through this just happens to be one that's been shelved and superseded by other bits and rush jobs.

Rich the weapon has been made so it can be reused for different systems and platforms.

Other than that forward planning ,its the same answer I'm afraid.
