Almost back!

Thanks for your patience. I’ve got the broadband reconnected and the new workshop arranged, I just need to finish setting it up. I’m hoping to be back in business by the end of next week.

Moving – argh!

Balls have been dropped, though not by me – no internet access until the 11th! I’ll try to keep connected with mobile broadband, but please bear with me. By the time I’m back online, I hope the new workshop will be up and running.

Time to pack the last few boxes. Ugh…

Master Crafted Miniatures is moving!

Less than two weeks from now, I will be moving from Littlehampton back to Portsmouth. It’s a move that’s been a long time coming and I’m really looking forward to settling back there. There is a great deal of sorting and packing to be done. At the same time, I am currently busier than ever with freelancing work. Look out for some cool things showing up fairly soon! Once I have moved, I will need some time to set up a new workshop. As much of my stock, with the exception of MAOW Miniatures, is cast to order right now this is very important for me to get right. I intend to move towards having a good stock level with proper management, but that will have to wait for now.

What this means for MCM is that any new orders received from today may not be fulfilled until sometime around the 10th of September. Those of you who have recently placed orders need not panic, you will receive them as normal!

I’m looking forward to what the future will bring and to showing some of the work I have been doing lately. Until then, check out Deus Machina from Rogue Heroes. I’ve been working with them for over a year designing mechs and collaborating with their other artists working on the boards and cards.

News Head Sets and Gorintō for Bushido

I’m pleased to finally release these heroic heads I sculpted a few months back. I’ve split them in to two sets and have another two sets to come. Each set consists of 6 heroic heads ideal for armoured warriors of your choosing!

The first is a set of 5 bald chaps and a fellow with a mohawk. The second is a little more unusual, featuring a couple of conventional hairstyles, some fantastic mutton-chops and a ‘fro as big as a disco ball! I’m sure you’ll find uses for them 🙂

In the past, it may have been apparent that I am a huge Bushido fan. Although I don’t get to play as often as I like, I love the rules and the miniatures. The oriental fantasy setting really appeals to me as I am really interested in feudal Japan.
So, I released the Gorintō a while back as a set of three, intending to use them as either objective markers or just cool scenery.
I recently played a game, however, where my opponent made use of the Temple of Ro-Kan. His list features all the animals available to him, and no unnecessary humans.  One human included was Aiko, and my opponent was using the Gorintō terrain special card as her battery.
It seemed to make sense to make my sculpt available as a single Gorintō with a 30mm base, as required by the special card.
