May Releases – I like spikes!

No products were found matching your selection.

…and apparently you do too! So here’s a veritable cornucopia of spiked things. Alongside those, I have finally made a blank veteran pad and a rimless studded pad.

But that’s not all! I’m also re-releasing the older large gothic pad designs since there has been interest. New moulds and higher quality than before.

April Releases

A few new products this month. First-up are some larger pads which may prove useful for those of you interested in true or art-scale conversions. If they are popular, I may introduce more variations. Requests are welcomed but I can’t necessarily fulfil your wishes! When I open commissions again, this style will be one of the template variants available.

Second product has no good name as yet. It is an infantry accessory set of 5x heraldic shields and 10x elbow couter decorations. Suggest a decent name which I use and I’ll send you two sets for free!

Lastly, I have started stocking neodymium magnets in two diameters (2mm & 3mm) and two thicknesses (1mm & 2mm). Hopefully, these will sell well and I can increase the range. Discounts are included when you buy greater amounts – just select the pack size on the product page.

January Releases

No products were found matching your selection.

New year, new releases! I’ll admit to somewhat stretching the phrase, but I have added a few new items to the store.

Most products now have stock management. This means you can see how many I have in stock before you order. You can still order more than I have in stock, but be aware that I will have to cast the extra quantity to fulfil your order. I usually only have one mould per item, so large orders can take a while. Especially if I have a big contract on and am in the middle of crunch time!

You’ll notice that the spiked veteran pads stock is low. I haven’t had chance to build up a stock but thought I would release them anyway. Bear it in mind when you order!

I have a February release lined up too, mostly items I couldn’t get ready in time for this month, but don’t go thinking that means I’m planning monthly releases!

Commissions and Freelance

So the workshop is up and running and I am caught up with orders. With the ludicrous amount of rain we’ve had in the UK recently,  I’ve had some trouble with flooding but I have been able to work around it to some extent.

I need to explain another, more frustrating, problem which I have been encountering lately in delivering my custom shoulder pads service. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to get prints I am happy with at a price reasonable for most hobbyists to pay. Combined with rising costs of both prints and shipping those prints to me, this means that I’m going to have to stop offering the custom service until I can find a more suitable solution. I’m sorry to those of you who will be disappointed by this.

I continue to be very busy with freelance work. You should see several of my sculpts for GCT Studios’ Rise of the Kage boardgame fairly soon. My first sculpt for their Bushido skirmish game has also just gone on pre-order (see below). Great guys to work with. They have crafted a wonderful oriental-inspired fantasy world and a fantastic ruleset to go with it. One of my favourite games currently. If you haven’t played it yet, I highly recommend trying it out. The rules can be downloaded for free from their website.

Ben.
