WIP sculpts - Spartans and Wraiths

WIP images here.

The Spartans will be in a set similar to the blue Atheros Hoplites, separate shields and spear arms.

The Wraiths will have separate heads, spear arms and shields. All interchangeable so there's some cool alternatives poses that can be assembled.

Atheros reinforcements

New Atheros miniatures available in the Edinburgh Miniature Company shop.

Female hoplite captain and some skirmishing archers.

More WIP sculpts to show for this range in a few days time, war engines and more characters!

Below are some comparison shots between my sculpts and plastic historical miniatures produces by Victrix and Warlord Games.

And finally some group shots of all my stuff below to get a feel for how an entire army of these will look.

Tox Trooper support - WIP sculpts

I'm glad I'm finally getting to expand this range, big plans ahead!

These all just need a few minor touch ups, straighten the odd line, thin the odd chubby finger etc.

Announcement - The Edinburgh Miniature Company

If you've not already noticed, I've finally done it... introducing the Edinburgh Miniature Company.

All my future works will be available for purchase there. Please help by spreading the word and picking up some of my sculpts!

I've got 3 main ranges I'm tackling full time now:

  • Atheros - mythology inspired miniatures scaled to fit with plastic historical's
  • Rebellion Protocol - exotic Science Fiction miniatures in a more realistic scale (not heroic)
  • Tox Troopers - heroic style range, I'll be fleshing out a full grim dark army for 40K lovers

I'll be maintaining this blog, probably blogging more now, and possibly showing off some of my conversions and paint jobs for other miniature manufacturers. The commercial side can sit at the Edinburgh Miniature Company, and Miniatures of the North will be my free for all.

WIP sculpts

A variety of things here... heroic scale characters to join the Tox Trooper range and some very early stage mythology sculpts.

'Movie Spartans' will be the next faction to be released after the Atheros range, in true Red vs Blue style.

Atheros archers - fauns and humans

Test casts have arrived for more of the Atheros range. Both the faun and human archers are all single pieces! No assembly required.

The bows have proved tricky to cast (a high percentage of failures came out) so I'm going to have to slightly shorten and/or thicken them slightly. Other than that I'm happy with everything else.

Also shots of a female armoured hero, separate arm and shield parts.

Atheros Hoplites - colour schemes

Here's a few more snaps of the miniatures and some experimenting with alternative colour schemes.
