Finally on the way to the caster for mold making!

Getting the 3D printed masters ready was a bit of an ordeal - I haD one part break on me and I had to fix up some of the joins for the legs but hopefully everything should be fine now.

After the molds are ready I will be doing the production run. I am still considering doing a Kickstarter to help pay for this. I have it mostly set up but I need to figure out some logistics for shipping etc.

I hadn't seen these before, but they do look very nice indeed.

Being in Australia, it's not too easy getting local gamers into a football (soccer) minis game; a sort of airborne version of rugby is very much the thing for the sports-inclined 'round these parts...  :(

I have a bunch of 54mm plastic players I've considered painting up for Corner Kick, but if this new range becomes available soon, I might hold off; a range in 28mm will work better on a Subbuteo pitch, and if they're available to all, maybe I might convert some in my club to the round ball game.  :)

How's the project going? Something that might interest those looking at these figures and the rules sets that are available striker, corner kick and the beautiful game that I know of is these pitches available from a company called astrobase they sell products for subbuteo including pitches and more importantly they sell some without the shooting line that's used for subbuteo here's an example this one is available in full subbuteo size and a a smaller size €40 and €20 and they have the mown lawn patterns too

Any updates on these figures?
They are 28mm scale?

Cheers

Crikey, sir. I'm looking forward to today. Up diddly up, down diddly
down, whoops, poop, twiddly dee - decent scrap with the fiendish Red
Baron - bit of a jolly old crash landing behind enemy lines - capture,
torture, escape, and then back home in time for tea and medals.

Sincere apologies for the lack of updates. The casting process took much longer than I had hoped, mostly due to the holidays. But good news, the test castings will be here soon (I am expecting them this week).

Thanks for that link! I will check it out.

Nice!!!!

My wife (from the same town as Zidane) would even let me buy a set or two of these!

FC Red Bull Salzburg (my old hometown) vs. Real Madrid!

Have you considered making a special pair of figures of Zidane headbutting that Italian guy?

Don't go there. It will merely spark a wave of folk demanding a figure of Suárez eating an opponent or team mate or even chomping down on a whole plane full of crash survivors.  Uruguiaos are odd people.

What about the Brazilian team of 8 July 2014? Will be good to see the tears on 28mm miniatures :D
