DELAYED! Due to having to run a kickstarter to keep the business going, the Skeleton Hero work has been delayed temporarily. But I will be back on him soon, apologies to those who have pre-ordered: I will make it up to you! - Andy
LIMITED EDITION - MASTER CASTING - WAVE 1 will consist of only 25 castings, as this is the most I can expect from the first set of moulds
This model will start to ship from June 2022 with the regular orders, each week as I get them cast up. It is a Limited Edition Master Casting, limited to 50 castings at most in this run (moulds may rip at any time) and may sell out at any moment, (especially if the mould set does rip before we get to 50 castings sold). If demand is sky-high I can make another set of moulds but you will have to wait for the second wave so get in first!
Please don't delay - this Collectable 3-Up replica may sell quite quickly! Note: 3-Up, so 3 times as big as a regular miniature. Not 30mm tall, 90mm tall!
As part of the upcoming skeleton plastics project, I am making a very limited amount of master castings of the Skeleton 3-Up models available. These are master castings taken directly from the original first generation master moulds of the sculpts, which will not last long and so only a handful of castings are expected to be produced. In order not to disappoint, only 50 master castings will be made available of this version of this first of the 'rank and file' Skeletons with which I hope, eventually, to fill your dungeon lairs. .
- Anyone who orders 1 of these Master Casting Skeletons will also be entitled to claim a free sprue of plastic skeletons if they do get made!! (1 sprue per master casting purchased)
- Each Skeleton 3-Up model kit is 3 times the size of the final 30mm scale figure - so around 90mm tall to the top of the skull, if they were standing bolt upright.
- I am attempting to keep the costs as low as I can on this model by making him in as few parts as possible, thus using as little silicone as possible in the moulding, which is mainly what ramps up the price of resin figures. The massive axe uses almost a kg of silicone alone! So rather than one kit with tons of options you can't use at once, this time you can choose which specific option you want using the dropdown.
- You can swap out the Hammer and empty arm for a Great Sword, or a Flaming Sword variant, or any of the other weapon options in the dropdown box they will fit (sowrd and shield only just fit, very fiddly to get in at the moment)
The planned model currently consists of: Legs, Front Torso, Cloak, Right hand with Sword (may be single piece with the torso front), Left arm with Axe, Left Arm with Shield, Left Arm with severed heads, random 80mm round resin base. These options may change by the time the model is mastered; if you want to swap out the arm options for one of the older options such as hammer or sword, let Andy know when oirdering using the comments box on the checkout. Note that the right arm is not easily swappable but you can swap the hand with minimal effort.
If you can't decide or don't care, choose "RANDOM' as the option and you will get whatever I have the most castings of to hand.
PLEASE NOTE: Designs may vary, sometimes I have to alter a thickness or length of a part, etc, for casting purposes and sometimes i just decide something looks better completely different so only pre-order this model if you trust my judgment. Initial Work In Progress pictures are a guide only.

Please note - this is a surprisingly complicated model to mould (and it uses a lot more rubber due to the cloak) and inevitably you may notice mould lines and/or some wafer thin flash on the casting - this is sometimes unavoidable on larger models due to the nature of the resin moulding process where the slightest slip of a knife can make a mould line run around the wrong side of a bony leg, etc and lead to the wrong pressing edges. However, they are easily removed by scraping back with a sharp modelling knife or glass fibre brush-pen. The model is supplied unpainted and unassembled, you can easily assemble it with superglue, and prime and paint with acrylic model paints, etc, as normal. We use a paintable release spray in case you don't fancy washing them, but it's always a good idea to wash them anyway.
IMPORTANT: THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE MOULD set for this model. I can make 3 master castings a day from it if all goes well, so there may be a delay in your order whilst I cast it!
