One of the former Rackham Sculptors has a couple of new sculpts. Need to email him for prices, so I've just done so.

Saw him doing these on coolmini as he is amazingly talented. I even tried to commission him for my business and his wait wait s over a year so that tells you about his talent.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

Why is Hannibal Lecter a dwarf? That head throws off the entire model. A proper dwarf head would make it quite nice, especially a chaos dwarf head.

The big guy is pretty awesome.

Its seems like every time a I see a rackham related thing I see more incredible models that are now unavailable. How did they manage to go out of business damn them? I know somebody is putting out a few of the models at a ridiculous price, but its the more obscure rackham stuff, like the things this guy has on his blog, that I really miss.

I think their attempt at going to pre-painted plastics only killed them, the metals and resin kits were gorgeous in every way and the pre-painted stuff just couldn't compete.

AT-43 made them money hand over fist; dropping the Confrontation metal line and switching that to PPP killed it (it was a huge, huge failure, after investing about a half a million euro into the plastic Conf launch)

I'm from the future. The future of space

They got greedy and abandoned the audience that made them big, thinking all those people who bought metal display quality pieces to paint would just lap up prepainted plastics in volume.

I can't think of a bigger face palm than having 14 million euros a year coming in from metal boutique quality miniatures for a low model count game and thinking everyone would just love to stop painting and play a high model count game with prepaints.

It's entirely possible though that internal sales documents showed a coming decline in Confrontation metal sales, but if so, their attempts to avoid it ended up guaranteeing it.

As for this stuff, I like both models, but think the evil dwarf's weapons are just a bit too long. I think if they were shorter, the model would look more balanced. The tall guy is perfect though. And both are sculpted amazingly.

Balance in pick up games? Two people, each with their own goals for the game, design half a board game on their own without knowing the layout of the board and hope it all works out. Good luck with that. The faster you can find like minded individuals who want the same things from the game as you, the better.

I ordered the big guy, Goliath, by contacting Stephane http://simonminiaturesculptor.blogspot.co.uk on Saturday, 3 November. Just received the figure today, Wednesday, 14 November. So a decent time-frame considering the order was at night Saturday and the shipping covered the distance from France to California. Model looks quite awesome and the details are clear. A very clean piece. My only regret is that I wont be able to start painting it for a couple of weeks. When I finish I will post a pic.

Doh.. I placed an order at 28th october, and I still havn't received the items. And from France to Sweden should normally go faster than from France to California. :(

I got my set in about a week great looking miniatures, I think the dwarf looks better in hand than the pic gives credit, the big guy is just covered in detail.

He is working on some other races as well I am sure I will pick a few up of those as well.

I just checked your site and saw that those pics from the OP are casts, not the originals. I was hoping so, but man, they came out great!

I don't have a use for Goliath atm, but he is a perfect hero for any Warriors of Chaos player.

These models, I like a lot more then the previous ones. I personally can't use them, but they are excellent renditions and the casting quality looks beautiful.

Female dark elf, you say? That sound promising.

Doh. I forgot that I posted in this thread.

Yeah, I got both of my miniatures the day after I contacted Simon about it (of course!). I guess that the post office were being slow. I had excellent communication with Simon that reassured me that I'd be getting the stuff. Excellent customer service.

Anyway, what I can say about these badboys are that they are simply fantastic. The cast is great and would require minimum work to clean up. The details on these are wonderful. The dwarf is tiny but totally excellent. I will definately buy more of Simon's personal work.
