Good to hear!

And I second Panic's idea to divide into a fantasy and SciFi set.

Yeah,
Maybe they should get the 28 sculpts in,
then decide on the best 20 that make it onto the moulds?

And then Maybe separate them into groups for purchase fantasy and scific or silly?


They obviously won't do that. It would be rather insulting to the sculptors who donated their time and effort to "not make the cut" - especially since they all appear to be professionals in the industry, rather than if say, you or I decided to try to put together a figure with greenstuff and send it in....

Separating them into sci-fi and fantasy might work. Excluding people won't.

yeah,
I agree with your sentiments but there has to be some QC.
Especially when you consider that some of the minis will be rushed to make the deadline/get involved.
Being included shouldn't be purely because it's a free sculpts from someone who's the heart is in the right place.

I see nothing wrong with - 'Thank you for your sculpt but we decided to use other contributors submissions'
Cruel to be kind and all that, if your work is subpar, you’ve got to accept being told so by your peers and customers.

Including poor sculpts will put people off buying a set and IMO that is not acceptable.
The first two sculpts I can see myself looking at as something I can buy convert and include in my grot horde.
In my opinion I think the last sculpt is subpar.

I also got involved in the Judge minty charity mini - They raised £8000+ total!
I gave £15 and I got a sweet mini to boot, I love the concept of Aid/Charity miniatures I think it’s an amazing direction for the hobby.
I think that judge minty mini also shows you don't need 30 sculpts to get pledges! just 1 or 2 good ones.

I love the idea of GoblinAid and hope to buy something soon, and if nothing takes my fancy I'll paypal a few quid.
After this terrible assault happened I've been made aware of how many of Kev's minis I have! and I want to help.
Like my blood bowl goblin team... Kev made those! and the GoblinAid link appears on that Stuff of ledgend page! Boom!

Spoiler:





and I adore them!

Panic...

lots of Edit to fix my post!

"The latest GoblinAid sculpt; this natty little Wizard is by George Fairlamb......

"

(ok, who's he trying to kid, goblin wizard?, goblin in stolen robes impersonating a wizard more like.... real goblin wizards are more individualistic/scruffy/insane, but a neat sculpt none the less, LOL)

In fairness, the pic on my screen is at least 3x the size of the actual sculpt, I have him in hand and he's barely 15mm tall....and is actually a very nice sculpt, not at all subpar IMHO.

Well they've had an offer of help from a resin caster (Black Dragon Castings) so fingers crossed at least some get made up

and I agree it looks great (and it's not even finished yet!)

I like it but looks like folks are going for sculpting 40k rather than fantasy gobbos! (mostly)

I've dropped Dakka's desire for casts of the Philip Hynes bust to be made available for sale/auction

(if possible... I'm assuming it's a size that makes this reasonable, not life sized)

so fingers crossed there

Black Dragon Castings/MDP have kindly offered to cast up the bust & plinth (again, limited numbers) so that'll be available, too...sometime after Salute. Couple more sculptors confirmed, this is turning into a veritable horde rather than a small warband....

And the crowd goes wild!

That's great news it certainly sounds that this will get expensive for me..... but all for a good cause

Well it's good that the futuristic gobbos are popular with you guys because so far I'm not as much a fan of them. But I love the fantasy gobbos, which are the ones I'm after (and the only ones that I could use) so hopefully they split it into 2 groups for fantasy/futuristic (maybe more with the number of contributions coming in).
