Join in the Sausage Making

Join in the Sausage Making

We often get asked how things work behind the scenes. And I usually reply with a variation of Bismarck's quote: 28mm plastic figures are like sausages, it's best not to see them in the making. Well let's throw back the curtain!

One day perhaps we can take folks through the journey step-by-step from the first sculpting brief through to the unloading at the warehouses, but for now let's look at the sculpting side.

Here we have the first round of parts sculpted for the upcoming Afghan Tribal Cavalry set (the horses are on a separate frame that is already finished).

We've printed the parts on a 3D printer to check for fit and sizing and now we want to make some changes. These are the initial notes for the sculptor which in some cases will include separate reference images. Before we send these along though, we'd love to have your input.

Are there any other things you would want to change on the existing parts? Anything you think needs to be included? Let us know in the comments below or where this is posted on our Facebook page.

I still want a modern (20th century) weapon set for the Afghans with AKs, Lee-Enfields, PKMs etc. And of course a Stinger :)

Left arm hold for some weapons, a brace of pistols for a command type figure and some .303 SMLE’s to bring them into the 1920’s and 30’s
