Every time I've bought a model from Artel W, I get frustrated looking for the mold lines. THERE ARE NONE.

Putting your political and ideological opinions in your signature isn't a clever way to get past the ban.

If you can't put that aside and discuss games with other people, you probably have an obsession and need professional help.

You could always put in a request for "FW level QA". They can put in some mould slippage, some hard-to-bend parts that need to be straightened, a whole heap of flash - the works!

" Hello there artel, I love your work but the people are getting suspicious at the game store about your figgies. I keep telling them they are old out of print FW stuff but they are starting to not buy it anymore. Could you please put some horrible mold slips, bendy weapons, mold lines for years, huge blobs of resin that obscure vital fine detail, tons of vents and some huge chunks of flash please?"


I'd pay money to see that email. I love his work and Im upset that I didn't get the Chastner figgie when it was out.

Please keep up the great work you guys.

Great stuff!

W's sculpts have great character. Love Cain, Jurgen, and the smirk on that new figure.

Is it just me or was anyone else who scrolled down that shapely strolling figure expecting it to end with tactical combat high heels?

Also, I thought that the tea sipping commissar survived the Great Purge of 2018? He was available with his faithful assistant just a few months ago on the website but is now gone. Did he really need a resculpt so soon? Artel, if you need suggestions for new figs, I could PM you!


Heroic Commissar miniature was unavailable at our webstore from January 2018, along with other discontinued miniatures.
Now we`re releasing the new version of him

Things FW Q&A has made me say in the past:

"These Alpha Legion helmets make my Kill-Team look cool. It's like 5 wicked-looking guys, and then there's the dude that got his head stomped by a Warhound titan."

"Wait, why doesn't your Sicaran tank have bullet-holes like mine?"

"Let's play which one of these is the real FW tank, and which one is the knock-off, I bet you'll be shocked."

"Funny thing, that DKoK army of yours has guys that have been across the Atlantic more times than most sailors to get replacements for bad molds."

"Yeah, it said to heat the part slowly to bend it to shape, so I used hot water. And yes, these are second-degree burns on my hands and the barrel did snap."

"Wow, the last time I waited this long to open something and be disappointed, I swore off dating religious women afterward."

So did I. Fun little touch.

I get paid soon, and have been waiting for Amberly. Got the old Cain before he was C&Ded, but I may as well grab the new one.

Between Artel, Heresy Labs, and even GW, we are starting to get a lot of good female models that are not cheesecake. Got to support all three when they do this.

I love everything about the new model except how symmetrical his pose is. He's a bit too statuesque as-is, for my tastes.

Whenever I get something from Artel W, I always open it at my FLGS because it makes me feel more important than people who get models in peasant boxes with pictures all over them.

Just received my Iron Boss, Tech Priestess and pair of new Seers the other day and I'm quite happy with them.
Eagerly looking forward to the release of the Skawat and Rekon Squad.
Is that new female Imperial with the 2 handed hammer over her shoulder an Inquisitorial type or with some other organization? She looks great btw.

She's a noble or something, a younger version of the other female model in that range.

For the next couple of days there's 10% off (IIRC) on all Grim Gothic models by the way.

I dont know why but i love ciggys on models.

it may be easier to model a slot in the mouth and insert a pin wire.

Artel W models are so good and they make me consistently wonder why GW can't hire sculptors that a) understand proper leg poses for moving objects and b) faces (especially FW). Can't be that hard to find these people if tiny companies can?

I agree that they may need to alter the cigarette before casting.
