There's so much work going on in the background that doesn't reach this blog.
Here's a quick work in progress snap of one such thing, for next years mega project...

(left to right in the above image)
- Victrix plastic torso, converted using MOTN metal head and arm parts
- MOTN hoplite miniature
- MOTN Faun archer miniature
- Victrix Greek archer, converted to use a MOTN head.
I now need to clean up and prepare the masters for production molds... a painstaking task.
Final shots below, these were test sculpts with my dollies. Some of the arms are wonky but I painted them up anyway. Here I'm experimenting to see if I can do hoplites with the left arm and shield all single piece with the body (so only the head and right arm would be multi-part). I'll likely take this approach with my god specific warriors and regiments.
And lastly, my humble little conversion parts gracing the Victrix plastics.
Stay tuned for more Greek mythology developments.

Another colour scheme experiment on a master cast... with a base fitting an underworld setting.
Planning on doing this head and shield combo as a single sprue, think I'll be able to squeeze 20 or so into a master mold. Folks can combine these parts with some victrix plastics for a mass army.

I got some master casts back so I've cleaned up a couple, assembled them.. and started painting.
I'm guessing the embossed shields will be popular, everyone wants a spartan shield, or a giant omega symbol.
When posting images I've always tried to maintain a discipline of using a light tent and cropping the image. This is a bit of a departure for the blog with a quick iPhone shot synced with the iMac in a second. This method might be useful in terms of speed for work in progress shots.
