    The tall host of Zhurem-Zhalkazinulbar marched out with heavy steps, hate and greed writ upon their bearded faces and devotional mysticism evident in their dark voices as they sang their hymns and dirges and recited their mantras and mouthed their fervent prayers.

    The omens had been good, and due sacrifice in blood had been offered up to the altar fires. The fickle gods were now all on their side, and this true knowledge made every man beam with haughty pride and cruel confidence. Their demeanour was that of conquerors, and they wore their hammers and axes, their shields and blunderbusses, as a race of born rulers. All did so, except for the shamed warriors of the death's mask. Pariahs and shunned outcasts, they were nought but slaves, and they made for a grim appearance on the battlefield as the great army deployed in deep formations.

    On the other side stood the enemy, all filthy, lowly and inferior, a tribe of savages to be trampled underfoot. The warriors of the tall host knew this, for they relished in the slaughter to come.

    And they raised their battlecry, with a roar alike thunder on high:

    “Hat or die!”

    "O great Overlord, the enemy host still defy our hats."

    "Then kill it with fire!"

    Don't get me wrong my friend, these are epic, but my preferred small scale is 6mm

    Thanks! Hehe, yes 6mm is lovely in the grand armies it capture. Tobbe has already invaded 15mm, perhaps he'll do the same with 6mm in the future? :)

    Hehe, Tobbe's quick conversions. He sculpt what he wants for his army, and I'm happy to cast whatever it is for a wider audience. Next mould will contain original sculpts.

    Then what is next? I was interested in the elves on your Etsy but they're a little too expensive

    Funny thing is, my brother participated greatly in pricing those, pointing out that my own initial price ideas were too low... Might be time to reconsider, will notify here if elves get cheaper!

    Next up are 5 post-apocalyptic sculpts, some more Chaos Dwarf stuff and one or two elven kits. Much of it long-promised or WIP. Maybe lizzie resin wall plates or some spontaneous stuff could pop up. I'm open for ideas, though need to chew through queue first. :)

    As a lifelong dinosaur fantast it's just a matter of time before some little lizzie-interesting stuff turns up... though as someone who likes to fill out niches not already covered by others, Lizardmen are well served with GW and LK between them!

    Cheers

    Fair enough. I certainly wasn't trying to make you lower prices. As an owner of an Etsy store and personal business myself I completely understand why we need to price things the way we price things.

    That said I do think lizardmen wall relief will look f****** amazing and I need them so keep me informed please.

    Thanks, Lord-Marcus! It's certainly planned for the future, though there's a queue of promised projects before I can get there. Don't be shy of reminding me later next year or something like that. :)


    The winds howled and whipped ashen clouds before them. Vultures flocked in the sky as the Third Great Army of Tjubba-Tjur deployed on a ridge to meet the onslaught of barbarian Orcs and Goblins. Such frothing maniacs and ravening hordes! That description was equally true for both sides in this conflict.

    The leaders of Tjubba-Tjur watched haughtily as their infantry maniples deployed, shieldwalls and deadly blunderbusses promising steadfast resistance and shredding death to all comers. Their standard bearers and musicians signalled in ways too sophisticated for the dumb enemy brutes to fathom, and now yet deadlier forces marched up to take up position on the flanks.

    Some of the youngest, yet most ambitious Tjubling leaders serving in the Temple Stud of the great city would take command of the combined arms at the flanks: Packs of whipped warhounds to halt foes and bog them down in a sea of fangs. Mobile Thunderhammer medium rocketry to blast apart enemy ranks and rattle their wits with the shriek of rockets whirling about, howling death. And the small but imposing squadrons of Tjubbutaurs, pride of the Temple Stud, fathers of thousands and bane of nations. For the Tjubbutaurs possessed power unrivalled in the eyes of devout Tjublings. Sacred creatures, they were. Their stampeding charge and ferocious swinging of great weapons would crush all under their cloven hooves.

    Bazarku, ancient Great One and most revered of Tjubbutaurs, snorted and galloped to the fore of the right flank force. He trotted before his multitude of progeny, all strong and blessed by the Bull God, and silenced the yapping of the hounds with a voice thundering from out of the pits of hell:

    "Today we crush bones! Today we maim bodies! Today we bring all the foes you see before us to the pyres as screaming offerings to Tjubshut! Slay! Let not a single craven escape our fuming wrath! Make them fall like the hat of Kebaznutjubbuk! Rrrraaaagh!"

    At this signal, the packmasters unleashed their dogs. The rocketeers opened fire. And Bazarku the Lord of Skulls charged ahead of his numerous offspring, rapidly clearing the distance between himself and the enemy hordes with a drawn-out bellowing roar which seemed to rise from the depths of the earth and shake the heart of everyone who heard it.

    He struck the enemy line alone, and all hell broke loose.

    @Warden : Cheers!


    There is much, oh so much that the lesser races fear in this world.

    They fear loss.

    They fear death.

    They fear pain.

    They fear deprivation.

    They fear tyranny.

    They fear hell.

    This is well, oh so well, for it allows us to forge all these fears into one potent symbol and strike it searing forever into the hearts of mortals.

    For they will know true fear at last.

    Fear of the big hat!

    I know these are mainly for minis, but the little bits of fluff writing that accompanies your marketing is amazing!

    Dark, depressing, and vivid - my kind of style :)

    Question. How were you able to get them made of metal? Do you get your sculpt copied and have them made? If so how? Also lol I would love to see some lizardmen or seraphon stuff lol.

    @Paradoxical Pacifism : Thank you kindly! They're fun to write. If you like the writing style, you'll find a whole lot of Warhammer writings (centered around Chaos Dwarfs) compiled as links in these two posts on T9A: 1 & 2 :)

    @DeathBringer125 : Cheers! I send the sculpts to a caster, who moulds them in a two-part silicone mould. The mouldmaking process is basically done this way, though more professionally. And usually it's done by spincasting. As someone who have cast tin soldiers and knows enough from reading about mouldmaking and casting, I'd rather let the professionals handle all that hassle and just pay up, instead of attempting casting myself.

    Then it's just a matter for the caster of pouring hot metal or resin into the moulds until my order has been filled, and ship it to my place. Smooth.

    Thank you, I hope to do a Mayan wall relief down the line, and its predestined for me to eventually try out some Dinosaur-ish beasts or Mesoamerican Dinosaur men. One can't escape fate. :D

    But first there's a slew of projects queued up to chew through, but do expect things of interest for Lizardmen collectors way down the line.
