More masterful sculpting! I spent years in a reenactment group and I had a helmet like these!

Quick question: will the weapons be available as a separate pack, or only with the figures?

Cheers

Your work is incredible, you are truly a master. Other periods are crying out for this as well. Just a thought... I will wait patiently for you to produce some bodies for the mountain of dark age limbs and heads I have acquired.

To be honest it didnít cross my mind until you mentioned it. If there is a demand that justifies the production costs it is possible. I will soon post the first resin samples. My caster inserts thin steel wire into the pole arm shafts and in that way they are basically extremely resilient combining the detail of resin and the strength of metal. That also means that they are more costly to produce than any white metal weaponís pack.

Presently they are all commissioned work at various stages of production for the customers. I do hold the trade rights though, so they will be made available either by me or established miniature companies interested to include them into their collection.

The last of 9 with pole arms and the set of the sallet helmets are currently being cast.

Thank you for your kind words. That could actually happen if there is interest.
This whole venture is basically a happy accident. I started it because I wanted to use my heaps of spare Perry arms and head bits. Initially I thought to cast some Perry bodies at home, but frankly it didnít sit right with me morally, plus the fact that they would be more of the same. I never expected that they would be so popular.
I really enjoy doing them and the people who commissioned more, each have different ideas
/directions they want to explore and this keeps it very interesting for me.

@ Captain Harlock

I would definitely be interested in the resin / wire weapons set. Greater robustness is an excellent idea.

I'd really love to see some Early Tudor sleaves as sets of arms (to fit Stuart's Steel fist dollies)..... do you think this is a possibility one day (soon)  ??? ??? ???
