Great work then! If I ever get around to starting up a mini company I may have some sculpting work for you... actually, I may have some sculpting work for you anyway!

According to the rules, you should open a new thread in the painting and modeling section, or you can ask the mods to move this to the P&M blog section and keep it all one thread.

Oh, and the electric beverage warmer is really cool

Octavus, your work is seriously really amazing. I think you are selling yourself short by making this project a tie-in to the Warhammer world. There's enough strength with your concept and models alone that you could make this its own world, independent of Games Workshop - and I think you should. Make this your own world, leave GW behind. I think your work is better than just being second fiddle to another game universe!

That armored steam-marine, the dwarf... Really, really amazing stuff. I would buy those models if they were available, if you could somehow duplicate them. I know a lot of other people would as well. Have you considered casting duplicates of them? I seriously should, or find someone else that can do it for you.

Thanks. It is serious and thought provoking statement. Every true business needs time and money and dedication. If I finish good amount of model and earn enough as physician for start-up then probably one day I will try to expand it

Wow. I had seen some of these in your other thread(s?), but most of this is new to me. The rest of the walkers are great, but the figures are absolutely amazing.

Starting up a whole company and producing kits yourself might not be feasible, but I'd seriously consider spending a few hours poking around online, researching commercial casting services. Limited runs mean the figures wouldn't be cheap, but this stuff is collector/serious painter quality - I'm sure there's a market for these models that would be willing to pay a premium.

You might want to consider something like Kickstart - at least, I think that was the program's name... Basically, people "invest" in projects by pledging money without actually paying. If the target amount is reached, the "investors" are charged and receive their items, once they're produced. If the target amount isn't reached, no one is charged and the item never goes into production. Could be a way to circumvent the start-up money issue, as your first run of models would be paid for in advance. Someone making resilient foam terrain pieces used this system, recently. Perhaps someone with a better memory than mine can point you towards their thread.

And yes, your models have a great selling potential - casting this miniatures will make a lot of steam punk fans happier, I'm pretty sure about that.
