I'm glad you like the stuff I'm allowed to show.( There's always more. I'm not allowed too) although I thought I'd add these two pictures as well.  There of the adventures figure's went off to live with Todd in Canada. ( Canadian Postal Pilot, Todd's fez wearing sabre wielding character from his group's art, and an Eldrich Horror's Para Handy.)
The other photo has just musings for Home Front bits .( At least one made into the Drunk Home Guard set.)  With out checking I'm pretty sure I went back and added steel helmets to at least three of the figures as well

Matt.
I've had very little spare time this last eighteen months.( Been a little ill as well as working. Hence I've been grounded to indoor work as the Safety Elves deemed me too fragile to stand in a field and get wet. ::)  I'm allowed out to play now but the kids have decided they want to go walking with me. Which is Ironic because it means I'll be stuck walking through vaping clouds and cigarette breaks instead of fresh air. lol )
Rommel,

Most of this stuff will be at 1st Corps Miniatures. In either the Follies or Home Front ranges. Or in a new range( at some point.) The Felttner is cast. But technically not released. It maybe possible to send an email and enquire after one . It's only a maybe. However people have had success with a 'maybe' on other unreleased models in the past.

Mark,
At least one of those sculpts looks to me to be a Kriegspieler! Have you been able to reconstitute the group? Very happy to see you back in the saddle again. Hope you had a good break on the dig.

Nearly Lon,
( There's actually five in the pic.) It was good to have Mrs TSG staying close by Glamping in a Shepherds Hut. Except it ment being devoid of covers on a night. Constantly waking up cold lol

I'll post on this thread once they're released.

Grumpy,
I'm glad you like them.

Re: A little side project. Turned in to sculpts.( TnSG's Workbench.)
« Reply #534 on: September 22, 2023, 05:11:29 PM »
This is just one of those side projects. That it never actually occurred to me ,That anyone else would be interested in.But what do I know. ::)

Every now and then I cobble together a Locomotive for 28mm's
Such as Lons cereal packet card narrow gauge locomotive. After this one( a couple of year's ago now.) I figured I'd like to have an easier/quicker method. To turn out a cab interior. In all honesty I'd been contemplating it but never actually getting around to it Since I made the space 1889 ether flyer.
So  I knocked up a quick version then made a stamp mould . Which I've been using ever since. When I know I've a locomotive to make at some point in the near future.I start by sticking every piece of leftover clay into the mould as I work on other sculpts. Sooner or later the moulds full and it turns out a 90% complete boiler unit/ thingy . A little extra tweaking and I have a unique version for each one off locomotive.
So I figured it'd be nice to have some miniatures to populate the footplate.  So I mentioned to 1st Corps that I thought a set of locomotive/ industrial crew miniatures might go down well.
At some point I mentioned The poses would fit in with the boiler thingy I was using. Which turned into might as well cast it up for you as well.( bonus saves even more time.)
Then it was mentioned that if I added it to the Follies Range. Undoubtedly someone will ask does it fit Sarrisa MDF trains? I didn't know if it did or didn't.  So I went rooting for that Sarrisa locomotive. I'd been given ( those who are familiar with my views know I'm not a fan of it in the slightest.)

Bugger.. It fits with around a 2mm gap at the bottom. So I thought great I'm stuck with a set of masters that fit someone else's locomotive.. So last week as a courtesy I phoned Sarrisa last week . Said I was stuck with these masters that coincidentally fit in the European locomotive. Was that an issue for them,and would they prefer them to be their product, Or even produced by a third party they already worked with. Because I'd like to see them cast. Explaining that I was dropping off work on Friday ( today) and if they had any objections then they wouldn't be in today's batch for casting.
I was asked did the masters fit all the locomotives in their range. I said I've no idea because they were never made to fit one let alone all of their locomotives.
Not so much as an email back let alone a call by this morning. So take that as they don't see as an issue or product they want themselves. So into the moulds at 1st Corps they go.
( a little vexing since I went to the trouble of knocking up a full second copy of parts and added them to the locomotive as an example of how of the set could fit in a Sarrisa locomotive and not over fill the space.  But hey ho at least I've got something of Chuck on eBay. lol )

Mark,
fantastic to see my narrow gauge loco. It is a dynamite build. I really like the inserts but I love the rail workers! I will definitely buy a couple packs. There is a dearth of industrial workers and I NEED some. Beautiful sculpts and chock full of character as usual.

I'm glad you like .As I mentioned before it was your build and that pain in the backside of a build spaceship. That got me musing about making life easier. As I now don't have to build boiler fronts for any thing that uses steam,River boats , railways and so on.( might inspire me to make a few more Space 1889 bits( always liked Jim's Aphid builds that come up on the forum. Just never put the time aside to make one ).
I did drop off a fair chunk of miniatures for casting ( in fact too many for one sitting so I brought some home. Including some that I know you're waiting for. They're due out in the next wave. Although six did make it into  this wave.)
I think I left some where around the forty plus sculpts with Simon and Michael.
Excluding the pulp and Naval landing party sets which are due in the next wave. I've ended up with a list more or less the same size as the one I've just dropped off.  But I've some 'Ratmen' and wild Haggis to finish in time for Partizan ( along with a few civil war ,and Eagle has landed bits and bobs. Although the latter might be pushing it given the time.)

These are terrific .

Perhaps add another two figures from the Bruneval  raid to make a pack of four? Id suggest the German POW seized on the raid and maybe Johnny Frost?
