Greek Mythology - conversion parts coming in metal

I know doing aftermarket conversion parts for Games Workshop miniatures is most peoples gateway into sculpting... but what about conversion parts for historical miniatures?

Pretty common I'm sure.

I've previously mentioned my love of all things Victrix. Regular readers will also be aware of my mythology sculpts taking shape.

I really don't think there's much need for the basic hoplites... there's a few plastic kits out there from a couple of manufacturers (they do want for some dynamic poses but I'll take care of that soon). What I did want to see though was fantastical helmets and weapons that I could use on all those plastics...

Here's a few early stage snaps of my metals parts in action. More to follow. Comment below if you are interested in getting your hands on some.

And as a closing statement - buy Victrix. They are amazing!

The mighty Karkadann - resin masters

Anvil Industry have cast me some resin masters of my fantasy rhino creature!

To recoup the costs of production, Anvil are offering a limited number on sale here -

I'm really happy with them, I want to dive in and start converting some right away....but I really must focus - first up I'll be making some armoured versions for my Fallen Dwarves to ride around. They'll be heavy assault cavalry, naturally!

Then who knows, the sky's the limit with them... they could pull a war wagon, or a chariot, and I'm sure my ski-fi desert range could use some beasts of burden.

Here's some other shots.... they come with tails but they're still on the sprues. These images are of the actual cleaned up masters I'm about to start sculpting over!

Obligatory ubiquitous scale shot below...
