Fallen dwarf spearmen, and the first in a series of wizards...

It was Anvil Industries 5th birthday party on Saturday!

In addition to booze, food and cake I also managed to swipe the very first test casts of these miniatures. They are ace. I did a limited release of these in metal last year so I'm hopeful I can transition all the characters over to Anvil, and resin production.

Quickly photographed here are WIP sculpts for dwarves with double ended axe weapons (still to be designed). There's still a fair amount of sculpting to be done on these.

This is the first in a series of wizards I plan on doing. They will be part of the same world the Fallen Dwarves inhabit.

Jumping the shark with 25mm heroic.

This is a strange little personal project, which I'll make no excuses for other than mild curiosity!

Commissioning the mold and some casts will cost me about £150-£200 so it's not a major endeavor.

Following the purchase of some power armoured super humans... I want some mild mannered run of the mill cannon fodder human soldiers. Done in a heroic style, with a 25mm height, I'm targeting a stylistic cohesion with the addition of a visible difference is size. The superhuman's will look superhuman!

The miniatures are in 3 parts, legs, torso and head. The torso's have the rifles attached but even then, 5 different torso's with 5 different legs will provide 25 individual poses.

Then there's the heads, I've gone overkill and have 7 different styles! 35 heads in total will be included in the mold!

I've also thrown in 3 blank torso's so I can make characters, command and support miniatures.

This is purely for personal use but I might have some available to purchase for any mad modeller's out there that want to give it a try!

Off to the mold maker these go. 2 legs weren't photographed here, I'm still working on the "conversion bits" that will use the free space above them in the mold.
