This model is a Limited Edition Master Casting and may sell out at any moment, (especially if the mould rips before we get to 50 castings sold)
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 mould, 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)
This skeleton represents some unfortunate prisoner of the Dark lord's dungeon, who died, shackled to the wall, forgotten, long ago, only to have his skeleton reanimated years later and pressed into service. The Necromancer has clearly just shoved a random spear and old shield into the skeleton's hands as the adventurer's progressed thorugh the dungeon and told it to kill, kill, kill them all...
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 model consists of: Body with Spear, Manacle and Chain, right arm with open hand, right arm with shield, 3 x skull, 75mm resin base. Please note that the chain links will be filled in and made solid for casting purposes, the plastics process can't cope with links with holes in.

Please note - this is a surpisingly complicated model to mould 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 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!
Contents: (all 90 mm / 3-UP sized! this is not a regular 30mm figure!) Body with spear, right arm, manacle and chain, 3 x random skulls, resin base (parts subject to change eg if i can get the manacle to cast as par tof the body, I will, and I might add more skulls in to choose form
