Today on the workshop. Mostly been casting
« on: October 24, 2020, 02:20:18 PM »
Just got in from the workshop. (2pm)
Cavalry mould today.

FM cavalry in cap  for the government.  1 pack with swords out and the other with bugler and standard bearer. Folk can use a sword trooper as an officer.

They will be out for sale on Tuesday 27th I think. I will get photos done on Monday too.

Next are sombrero gun crew and officers.
Then sombrero cavalry.
The range has enough size for people to start their armies.

I personally need a lot of packs of Sombrero casualties :-[

That sounds like a good morning's work, Martin - well done!

I'm looking forward in particular to seeing how your latest horses have been sculpted.

I would love to see a video of the sculpting and casting process... some reality 'tv' we could all enjoy!

Thanks for the confidence.
These first two cavalry packs are all 1 piece castings.
Makes the moulds difficult to make for Mike , but I like the cavalry all in the going forward plane.

Pictures  after the weekend.

Rules are about 32% done now.
Buildings are 6% done.
The  FM range is about 35% done.

And more spurious statistics in the same day too - we are indeed spoiled  :D

Within the buildings is there something that can be made into a railway station?

I guess that means the Mexican enterprise is 25% complete

Stewart,

I think you'll need to ask Martin what weighting he's giving to each of these key components of the MexRev project for the answer to that!

My guess would be nearer 32.4% overall. But then there are of course  lies, damn lies and statistics!

A railway station would be a nice feature indeed.

Photos added to website of Government cavalry and sombrero foot.
I think sombrero figures will look great en masse.  All those hats.

Getting under your paint brush yet Dave? Martin needs some more play testers.
