Firstly I'd like to wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year !

I thought I would also show the first few steps I've taken with the rebel transporter.

The first thing I needed to do was fill in the holes on the top, I started this by sticking plasticard inside to block the holes. Then I used green stuff over the top to add detail ( this will be able to see in later shots).

Next I needed to modify the back hatch to trail off more, as you can see in the pictures first I marked it with a pen, then cut carefully along the line

To get the shape required I used masking tape to give the rough shape, on both the front and back apertures

I then used fibreglass and resin on the inside to add strength and shape.

While the top was left to set hard I started work on the bottom section, first I drilled out the three engine holes, I did this by drilling a pilot hole, then using a wood boring drill slowly widened the hole.

Next I added a green stuff lid to each of the engines, using my little finger as a support inside the engine while securing it.

Once the above was dry I then filled in the back of the holes.
That's as far as I've got so far, hopefully I will have more to show soon, so until next year have fun !
Cheers Dave

With Christmas over with for another year, I've been busy painting up some of my presents from Sarah and the children.
First up is the start of a small Bespin group, including Lobot, a guard, and a Twin Pod Cloud Car Pilot, thinking of using these on Tatooine occasionally as they arrive to procure supplies, or maybe for dealings with a less savoury element.

Next up is two rebel pilots, I've painted one in the usual colours, and one in blue squadron colours, which I thought would be appropriate as that was the colours I used on my X-Wing last year.

The last model today is Djas Puhr from the Cantina scene, makes one less model to build for that scene, so was very happy.

I have a couple more which I won't show until I've done the work needed on them, but want to show the start of a piece of scenery I got the Rebel Transporter which I will be turning it into the rusted version seen when entering Mos Eisley.

Hope you all had a great Christmas, that's all for this post, so until next time have fun !
Cheers Dave

Continuing on with the undead this month, I am getting close to finishing the two groups of victim and feeders, just a couple of details left to do on a couple and then they will be ready for casting, but this week has been taken up with trying to get my new sculpting room to a point where I can use it.
Here are the pictures

Hopefully shouldn't be long now to finish and also get the wheelchair Z done as well, short post today as I'm about to wrestle with a carpet !
Until next time have fun !

Well this month is truly turning into the month of the dead, as my computer chair of 14 years finally gave up the ghost, unfortunately I happened to be sat on it when it happened, fear not dear readers no models were damaged in the process, just my already damaged body ! LOL Who say's our hobby isn't dangerous !

Fortunately I had finished the child feeder Z before this happened

It's a bit hard to see at the moment all in green but finally found a use for the bizarre teddy leash that I've seen available for kids toys, have also gone for mated hair to cover the face as child Z's can upset some people.
That's all for today, will hopefully have all the feeders finished by next week, and the wheelchair Z too, so until next time have fun !
Cheers Dave

As I start DEADCEMBER I decided to start with the victims and eaters, this was due to the fact that each piece is effectively four sculpts in one and would take some time.

The first one is a male victim getting bit in the neck by an old Z, hence the emancipated look of the Z, the other two Z's will be chewing on his arm (separate cast) and a bloated Z chewing on his intestine's (separate cast)

The second victim is female, with a torso Z crawling over to get to the soft bits. There will be a child Z eating intestine (separate cast) and another Z eating her detached leg.

Have also started Dai's idea for a wheelchair Z, never let it said we are not an equal opportunities Z force ! That's it for this update so until next time have fun !

First off today I have some sad news, for the first time in 10 years my company will not be going to Salute. This has nothing to do with the event as we were allocated the relevant space we needed, but due to the very trying year we've been through, the construction of our new facilities is still not finished and added complications has delayed the completion. Hopefully the following year we will be back but that depends on being able to get the relevant space if available.
Now to something more interesting, Phil is running Deadcember over on his blog dizbustersge and I'm going to use this to create some undead miniatures. I have already started 3 models, two sets of Zombies and victim, and an enraged spirit. The Zombie idea came from Andy (Da Gobbo) and will be based from this idea

The enraged spirit will be a ghost, now I'd like to do two more undead pieces, what would you guys like to see ? It can be anything to do with undead, drop your ideas in the comments.
Very short post today, next week will hopefully have some work on the undead to show, so until next time have fun !
Cheers Dave

This  months painting challenge on azazelx blog was to paint something mechanical, and I thought it would be a great idea to use this challenge to add some robots to our range.
This one has a respirator appendage, a hypodermic syringe, a laser scalpel, and a clamp/ spreader hand. I thought this would be a versatile set of arms

Short for Standard Technical Automaton persoN this is a general purpose robot that could be used for multiple jobs. ( i know the last word is a bit of a cheat ! LOL)

Maintenance Droid
A small multi purpose use droid for possibly vent shafts or service tunnels

Mobile Food Dispensing Droid
Free roaming droid that you could stop and buy food or beverages from.

Pleasure Droid
If all industry was mechanised, maybe this would be the robot equivalent of the oldest provision

And here's a group shot to make it easier for Azazel, these models won't be released until January, but are available to you all now, the maintenance droid is £3, Stan and pleasure droid will be £4 each, Doc Bot is £5 and food droid will be £6, if you want any on pre release just email me what you want.

That's all for this post so until next time have fun !
Cheers Dave

As I continue on with the robots this month, I have now got enough of the 5 th robot done to show. This will be a vending droid, it's similar to the one in Judge Dredd the movie (the 1 st one with Stallone) but has enough variance that I shouldn't infringe on copyright.

As you can see robodoc is progressing well, and just working on the arms and sockets to finish.

Stan currently needs a hand to finish him off

Pleasurebot (or Olive for Frank) needs a replacement hand and a lower leg to finish.

The maintenance droid was pretty much finished other than some tidying, so haven't taken any more pics since then, hopefully the next time I post on these will be in paint.
So until next time have fun !
Cheers Dave
