Note from Andy Foster- One of the projects that I must now start to admit may never see the light of day is my plastic skeletons, that got sidetracked in 2010 by a dragon and were never finished. I'd need to take two months off just to sit down and work through them and get them ready for the complicated plastic injection process, and have to raise around £50,000 on Kickstarter just to do one decent-sized sprue of half a dozen or so skeletons with various options. Scary amounts of money involved in the plastic process!
Rather than let them sit in a drawer for ever more, I am releasing a limited series of 'assembled' versions of the components that I have finished so far, beginning with this Skeleton Warrior armed with a sword or axe (you get both, to choose)
Be aware that this is a sculpt specifically designed to overcome obstacles you face in plastic tooling, namely zero undercuts of any kind, and limits on tiny details that look huge on the 3-up, for example, the teeth - you have to do them stepped and much larger than you would in a bigger scale! Every bone has to be more or less accurate, but also reduced in complexity so that it looks right but also casts correctly and is strong enough so that it won't snap taking it off the plastic frame when you tried to assemble your models. And you have to sculpt it at 3 times the actual size - easy on a computer, defintiely trickier to do by hand, like this was done. Not only that, but you have to make it modular, with as much interchangeability and posability as you can think of. I think i did well!
If this kit proves popular, I will make the next one available with spear options! (Which I have to finish first). This version of the kit comes with the choice of sword or axe and a choice of 3 versions of a skull that I have played with over the years, along with a large resin plinth-style base. The model is 90mm tall to the top of the head, (which would make it 30mm tall had it been produced as an injection plastic model).
This model will ship by the end of July after I have made enough production moulds to cover the demand! Please be patient when ordering.
Please order immediately to avoid disappointment as this model may not return to the store for several months or more once it has sold out. Check the amount in stock if visible.
