Brillant work on that sister!

Donít want to derail your fine thread, but sometimes I also wonder about recasters. Long time ago there was a guy at the bay who had everything from WEG Star Wars, which normally is pretty rare and goes for insane prices. I assumed you pay those prices and make good profit by selling dozens of cheaper recasts.

Really? I had a huge amount of WEG figures and literally could not sell them. I ended up swapping a big tub for some painting.

Thanks all

Why some indie magazine (physical or digital) hasn't done a feature on your work is beyond me. It's such a joy to look at, and it reminds me of the potential of this toy soldier hobby of ours.

Thanks, much appreciated! I did recently get interviewed for an article in Goonhammer, for my servo-skull project "#servoskullsaturday".

Finally finished up another relic dealer and his mobile kiosk.

This is all just simply amazing.  :-*

That relic seller is something else.  :o :o :o

That kiosk is very clever. The relic dealer is superb: the stance, the accoutrements, the colour scheme!

Nice interview - it was enjoyable to read, even though I am clueless on the 40K universe. Your stuff just seems to tell a story -- I always enjoying seeing the figures you post. Thank you!

What a thoroughly excellent trader and stall, jolly good work sir.  (I may steal this idea at some point.)

The relic dealer and his stall are a brilliant idea and perfectly executed. I get so much inspiration from this thread  :-*

I finished up the Forge World 'Relic Monger' character today- he was a must-buy for my 40k Imperial Sector, considering I already had a few relic dealers lurking about. I love the design of this guy, and the casting quality was excellent. I used some Forgotten Chapters decals on the scrolls.
