These Tox Troopers are an update to my sculpts from several years ago, Anvil Industry still sell the slighter/smaller styled versions but these new 'heroic' ones will be available from me in metal. 7 poses in total. They come in 3 parts: head, rifle and main torso. I'm working on command and special weapon sculpts as we speak and if they prove popular I'll expand the range significantly (i.e. if I can make a profit, that profit will fund the new moulds). Alternate head and rifles sprues will also be made available.

Lots more images in my Dakka gallery or on my blog, link in sig.











Some scale comparison shots below.









Last but not least, the start of a Greek Mythology range - scaled to fit plastic historical's (not heroic scale).









Queries, comments, support, etc. all very much appreciated. Thanks,

I’ve been running your tot troopers as a Necromunda gang for some years now.
The updated version looks absolutely amazing.
May have to upgrade my gang to an Imperial Guard regiment.

Are you also doing an updated version of the flame troopers?

Ahhhh! I have loved those Tox troopers of yours for ages. But the only thing that put me off getting some was the weapons. These new ones will fit the bill nicely!

Have you plans for your other ranges? Aether pirates, cult robed guys, etc?

Your reputation proceeds you. I will be gathering up a couple of squads of the new guys. Absolutely amazing!

Cheers all. The Tox Troopers are my focus for the time being, I want to make new things for the range. New versions of the flame troopers will likely be in there somewhere.

I'll try and get a comparison shot with the old and the new. I still like the old ones, they are their own thing.

I'll need to look into Mag28 at some point, good suggestion.

No shop, just me for now working from an office at home.

Cost per trooper?

Look at our profits, now look at our sales, now look back at our profits. Sadly, sales numbers aren't in line with our profits, but it could be, now that we've introduced FINECAST(tm), slashed staff and raised prices. Look at my hand, its our annual report... look again, the report is now DIAMONDS. Anything is possible when you invest with GW. (I'm issuing a dividend.)

Nice sculpts MOTN!
I bought 6 of the tox flame troopers for my mechanicum force a few years ago - very pleased with them!
Opponents like them too!

Liked the concept of the Tox Troopers, but the models were mediocre at best. These are actually pretty good. The colour schemes are a perfect advertisement especially for Tau players.

I ordered them back in the day, but scrapped it due to the scale being off. Great to see they're back!

Beautiful!

I hope that you'll some day add "heavy stubber" and special weapons options for them, so they can be used as counts-as chaos cultists and guardsmen.

Hasty WIP shot below with everything going into the next mould for the Tox Troopers. Leaders, heavies and flamers. Along with an assortment of characters, some not shown here.

The basic infantry are discounted until Friday so people can stock up on them, then add the pack of leader/heavy/special to make a unit of 10 (infantry come in packs of 7)

I am OK with the idea of a unit of 10 for chaos cultists. I have plenty of other cultists to be other units of 10.

Thank you very much!

I've got about 15 minis going to the mould maker next week including : 3 squad leaders, 2 flamers, 1 man portable heavy stubber, 1 missile launcher. + 5/6 cult characters.

After that, banner bearer, commander, comms, light armoured scouts... the cool stuff.

Glad to hear it! I've had a customized tank company sitting on my bench for like a year without a plan or identity. These guys finally give me some inspiration to make that an actual army.

Nice, please share pics once you're done!

I've got limited numbers of my Desert Rebels available in the store, note these aren't heroic scale and have slighter proportions. I'm intending on seriously expanding this range as project Rebellion Protocol - exotic sci-fi inspired by Jodorowsky, moebius, Dune, etc. After the Tox Trooper range is fully fleshed out of course.

Heya. We actually met a few years ago when you came down to the Anvil studios for their birthday party.

I always kinda liked your tox troopers, but the slight scale difference meant I had no real use for them. These ones look great and I won't hesitate to buy them once I find a niche to use them in!

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.
