Posty just dropped off a rather nice box of goodies, interesting to see what the casting process does to putty it's so dark! Looks like I'll be sorted for things to paint for a while at least, my thanks again for getting the competition to the finish line. If ever there's another one I can definitely see how the winners became winners looking at the casts!

I received my parcel today :).

What a generous amount of metal!

I am really pleased that my sculpt made it through the casting process without any damage whatsoever... I must be doing something right :).

The rest of the casts are great too... I am sure I will have fun pawing over them at some point soon.

Cheers to Kev, Sally, Dameon and Jenn for everything. It may have been a long process but I am very grateful that the competition happened and I now have another of my sculpts immortalised in metal :D.

Hey guys. We did have a small setback at the casters this week. Some of the more fiddly things in the regular moulds are a real pain. Which means some of the additions are delayed another few days while he keeps trying. There's a gun or two that won't come out and a mini or two etc. Nothing spectacular, just the problem with this kind of thing.

(And one of the winners has a separate weapon that also doesn't cast 25% of the time, which is causing a problem).

We're on it though, we shall be completely fulfilled by end of the month :)

Have you considered expanding on her to make a squad or two? Just saying but she'd be a good fit to replace a sort of lacking line and unloved army for a big company

I picked my pack up this afternoon. INCREDIBLY generous lead pile. Thanks to (going alphabetical here!) Dameon, Jenn, Kev and Sally; you've all excelled anything we could have hoped. Looking through the miniatures, there's some lovely stuff there. Kudos to those who made the grade. Cheers all round.

Some haven't been sent out yet due to casting issues/shortages. No need to panic, I haven't received mine yet either but Jenn told me why

Just got mine today. Have to wait until I get home though before opening it all up as I had to collect it from the post depot (no one home to sign) Although I had a brief look at my medusa sculpt and it's better than I remember :)
Thanks for the hard work on this over the recent months and good luck with getting everything in order with the move.

Question for Artemis. If I've moved house since this thing started (I have just over a year ago) and changed email address (which I have, just over a year ago) who do I need to contact to make sure I get my package as and when it's ready please?

Normally you would, but right now it's being resolved at the same time that Jenn and I are driving back and fore to Wales multiple times a week so I'm afraid we are posting on the fly so to speak.

We are hoping that on our way back from Wales tomorrow we can pick up the third round of castings. If something is still wrong with the one you are missing we will post yours regardless :)

Just got a lovely package of HFM goodness in the mail, along with.......

CASTINGS OF MY OWN WORK!!!!  Oh man, wow!  Totally awesome!!!!!

I'm also looking forward to working with the castings of the other winnings/hfm choice figures.  They're all great work!!!.....although, converting nut that I am, I'm looking at even those going "hmmm, now if I swapped that out for a shotgun, and turned that into a lightsaber....".  Kind of weird, if you think about it, conversions of conversions.  I may need to seek counseling eventually...

Many thanks again to the HFM team for pulling all this together!!!!!

Still nothing on this end. but then; I'm still waiting for the Paypal invoice for the extra minis I ordered.

I'm guessing the move is to blame for that? No worries, but just checking; I'm dying to finally hold a metal casting of my entry... :happytears:
