I'll come back and link the webstore here at launch in the coming weeks, in the meantime some previews here that might interest Dakka.

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!



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

By the way, do you have a shot of the old Tox Troopers compared to the new ones?

Hope it turns out to be a lucrative endeavour - new stuff is always good.

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.
