Duxford, Cambs, UK

Well, I ordered some bases at about 10:30 UK time yesterday.

Blow me down if they didn't arrive this morning by quarter to 11! They look great and will do the job that I wanted them for quite easily, I should get around to starting them in the next few days, painting them up in preperation to recieve the models that will eventually adorn their surfaces.

I will start a couple of blogs as I get on with the work, although it will be at least another 3 weeks before I can get to the materials to finish them off as well as they deserve. The reason for the couple of blogs is that I got 10 bases of the 25m 'Forge Ruins' type, and 6 of the 'Granite Wasteland' type for 2 different projects.

It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes…then all of this…all of this…was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars."

All part of the service I get most stuff dispatched within 24 hours, so on occasions where people order in the morning and royal mail are up to scratch I get sub-24hour delivery times!

Looking forward to seeing the blogs

I received my test run of forge ruin bases today and I'm very pleased indeed. The detail, the weight, the style and the quality are all fantastic. They're also priced very well. I'll be ordering a big batch to base my entire army in the near future.

Thanks Temujin,

Glad you are happy with the bases and they got to Japan ok!


Nothing new from Anvil Industry for a while now.. Im currently in the process of re-mastering a number of Steam Lord parts, as well as a few new ones, Ill hopefully have them ready for release early next week.

Any further news on those Widowmakers? I was really looking forward to getting my teeth into 10 of those before Christmas.

Will also need more bases next year, but those will have to wait until January for my wallet to recover sufficiently from MOT, Service, and Tax for my car. :(

How suited are those bases for using in combination with flying rods? i.e. can you drill a hole into them, or is the metal filler unsuited for that (without using special metal drilling drills) ?

My crisis suits tend to not stand up on sloped terrain well, but some of them are 'flying' and need the flyings rods.

Hey,

@Conrad. Im also looking forward to getting them! they are at the printers at the moment, I am expecting them to be shipped on the 14th, and will hopefully get them before christmas,

rest assured I will be working on them as soon as I recieve them and making them available ASAP!

They will be availalbe by themselves, and also with armoured hands/arms as an integrated peice.

@MoD.

Good question.

*goes to shed*

Yes! I tested a 40mm base wih my pillar drill, 3.5mm standard drill bit, and it came out great, if anything it drills slightly easier than regular resin. dont use a wood drill!

I also tried with a pin vice and it works.. but a lot of effort needed, a dremel would work great..

usual precaustions- gloves, eye protection, mask, do it outside if possible.

The 60mm bases are thinner toward the middle, so putting a flying stand in the middle of one of those might be problematic, however if you drill into a thicker terrain feature on the base, like a rock, it should work great.

Im currently working on re-releasing my Steam Lords, Im reworking the torsos and heads to improve them.

Oh well, looks like I will have to wait until next year then. I currently only have internet access at work, and Wednesday's my last day this year.

Still, what wonders will you have put out by then? Probably means a bigger order when I do get to do so.

I certainly hope there will be pleanty of new stuff!

Ive got some new casting equipment arriving tommorow which will vastly improve both the speed and quality of my casting process, which will allow me to get new products out almost as quick as I can sculpt them!!

Due for re-release in a few days time-

Praetorian and Spartan Torso, 6 different 28mm helmets, including two totally new ones, and some running praetorian steam lord legs.

The next release after that is the "Tech" steam lord kit along with the assault rifle, and some bionic arms

In mid January the "medieval" Steam Lord Kit is due.

Im hoping to get the Steam Lords range finnished by mid February, then Ill be working on "somthing completly different" in the build up to SALUTE 2012, which I'll be attending in April.

I have a manicly busy and exciting few months ahead!

Any chance of a scale shot of the first auto-cannon below?

I.e., would it be suitable for a dreadnought if not mounted on the stand (two of them together for "twin-linked", of course)?

Anvils hammer wrote:Hey,

awesome, glad you like the stuff! The rifle is due out before christmas hopefully. I am waiting for it to get sent to the 3D printers, as soon as it gets here it will be a few days to make the molds, updates will be in this thread of course.


New products!-

These have been sitting on my desk half finnished for months.. last week I finnally got them completed and in the molds.







These are available now from the store- http://www.anvilindustry.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=59_78

The tripod is sold separatly and can equip most 28mm heavy weapons.

Ive also added a "modelling supplies" section to the store, which has "Rapid Mold" press moulding plastic, as well as several different tones of static grass. More modelling related stuff will be added as I source it. Anything in particular you want to see? suggest it!

now this stuff is out of the way Im getting on with a major new Steam Lord launch.

Cheers guys!

@RiTides, I dont have a scale shot, but if you look at the product page here-

http://www.anvilindustry.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=110

you can see the autocannon is 46mm long, so if you stick a ruler next to your dreadnought you can get an idea. They are not as big as some of the auto cannons out there, but the barrel is pretty thick so it wouldnt look weedy!
I may at some point next year make a twin linked version suitable for mechs.

@identity. I try to keep the costs of all my parts down as low as possible, the bases are substantially more complex to manufacture, hence they are not the cheapest bases on the market! there is 15% discount at the moment with code "XMAS"

Cheers guys, stay tuned for some forth coming new product!

A twin version would be fantastic! Thanks for pointing out the measurement, too, that is helpful . Will compare the size and see what it looks like (still waiting on the alternate dreadnought models I want to use to be released, so I'm not in a rush).

No Problem.

Im hoping to do my own Mech Walker at some point next year, dont know if it will sell.. its just somthing Im personally interested in doing, so it might be a while!

Here is a WIP shot, as Ive not put any up in a while-



Praetorian Steam Lord running legs.

I've based them off of still frames of elite runners, so the geometry is "realisistic" to an actual runner, pretty pleased with how they are shaping up, can hopefully get them finnished today.

I got a Vacuum pump yesterday and Ive been playing around with it making the molds for my new parts. The Steam Lord helmets when I re-release them will have a lot less flash on them as a result!

Cheers! Work is progressing nicely on the legs, though I spent most of today making new molds of Steam Lord heads!!

Kit, from Zinge Industries, has just sent me this photo of the 3D prints of my upcoming parts!

From what I can see, they look awesome, Im really excited to get these new parts in the molds next week!



Components from left to right-

Steam Lord "Fusion" backpack
Widow Maker Assault rifle
Scope Attachment
Widow Maker Pistol
"Rip Saw" attachment
Grenade Launcher attachement

The next two components make up my upcoming "multi pose" bionic arm, which will allow you to customise your minis with fully posable bionics! (The bionic legs are coming up in the future)

And finally an axe head, an alternative Steam Lord Weapon.

Cheers guys!!

They've been withdrawn from sale for a few weeks whiel I remastered all the parts to improve the quality/make a few changes, and re-molded with my new vacuum pump tech, which means these are my best parts yet!!



You can purchase these bits as full Steam Lords, or as conversion parts for similar Heroic scale 28mm miniatures, from

Haha, Thanks!

The original Widow Maker print unfortunately came out a little bit to big, so I am having the parts re-printed and will release them as soon as I can!!

Im currently doing research and experimentation for upgrades to my casting system, so releases will be a little thin on the ground in January.

Cutting stuff up and bunging it back together in new and interesting ways.






Under the couch

Some promising stuff coming through there.

I should point out though that the gigantic pictures aren't doing you any favours. There's no real need to show those heads 100 times bigger than actual size... it makes them look very rough, and shows off flaws in the surface and/or painting that would otherwise be negligible, which gives people an exaggerated negative view of the quality of your product.

But yes you are totally right, the enormous photos are deeply unflattering, Im going to be taking photos of all the raw resin parts at some point.

For the time being, you can see a lot of my parts just undercoated in this video blog-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wruZL7gajA&feature=channel_video_title

Marneus is using a lot of my parts to assemble his Pre heresy Luna Wolves, Im looking forward to seeing the painted minis!

The Anvil Industry release schedule is well behind at the moment, as Im currently focusing on getting some new casting equipment designed, build and tested, its a lot of trial and error so realistically it will be mid february before I can focus on making new parts.

That said, I do have a few new bits and bobs, including the assault rifles, in the pipe line over the next few weeks.

Hey Guys,

here are some new photos of the raw resin parts so you can see exactly what they look like when they come out of the molds-







This guy has some new parts- the armoured arms which a few people have requested, and a new "Fusion" power plant-



Ill be releasing the armoured arms and backpack along with the updated Medieval torso in the next week or so.

I estimate my new casting equipment will be sorted by the end of the month, so I will be ramping back up to full scale production by mid february and have a lot of stuff to release!!

Cheers,

Joel

Hey,

A quick update to show you all some new stuff Im working on.



Circle from top left-

The resin copy of the Fusion plant.

The updated "Heavy Medieval Torso", and a small riveted strip, designed to cut into three armour plates, to attach around the miniatures waist. The extra armour plates will also be available separately.

A new ambidextrous weapon im calling the "Auto-Scythe", a chain saw and submachine gun arranged in a "gauntlet".

My new "Medieval" style Steam Lord legs. This set is 9 separate parts blue tacked together to check the scale, I will now be making a number of different poses for the production mold.

And new Axes.


My new casting chamber is arriving tommorow so the next week or so will see plenty of manic experimentation with vacuum casting!

I have an enormous pile of stuff to make molds for, and will get it all done as soon as possible.

In the meantime if there is anything you particularly want ASAP, feel free to shout here!
