Wargames Factory is heading to Historicon – we have a table right outside Registration (fittingly, it's in the bar!)

At the table, besides all the normal table goodies – sneak peeks at new sprues, the new Steve Saleh metal figures, painted figures, and the smiling visage of Howard Whitehouse (aka Mexican Jack Squint) – you will also be treated to a large computer with a strange man attached to it -- Tim Barry our lead sculptor and art director.

Tim will be using his Freeform system to sculpt figures AS YOU WALK BY.But, what's more cool, is that you can also throw your name in the hat and if you win Tim will put your face on an upcoming plastic figure!

(Actually, given how we save sculpts and tweak and reuse – you might just end up in a LOT of sets!)

So come on by and say hello at Historicon!

All the best,


Tony Reidy
Wargames Factory

Is this for the new range of "Well-Fed Middle Aged Armies of Antiquity" ?

with glasses and beards. Also a pair of shorts and tee-shirts for the famous 19th century regiments.

WF201 – Fat bloke with unpainted figure

Fifty4 Inactive Member15 Jul 2009 6:31 p.m. PST

Now, now – there's a difference between "face" and "physique"!

Griefbringer15 Jul 2009 11:54 p.m. PST

Well, there has been a shortage of John the OFM figures lately (who else could win such a competition?).

That said, isn't this level of cross-posting slightly excessive?


Warwick Castle Inactive Member16 Jul 2009 2:33 a.m. PST

In the might of Rome wouldnt it have been better to have done a Caesarian late Republic Cavalryman to go with the rest of the range rather than an early Imperial…

Can not attend the convention this year can I enter by email? Also people need to order your WSS infantryman so we can get it into production.

essayons716 Jul 2009 4:51 a.m. PST

I'll stop by and gladly lend my likeness to your upcoming "deformed experiment-gone-wrong" range of miniatures!

LEGION 1950 Inactive Member16 Jul 2009 6:21 a.m. PST

Tony, what new Roman metal figure did Steve make? Mike Adams P.S. waiting for the German Cav!

WF201 Fat bloke with unpainted figure

And the much more widely bought variant:

WF201A – Fat bloke with a mountain of unpainted figures

ezza12316 Jul 2009 6:38 a.m. PST

New edition to the range;

WF202 Disgruntled Wife (use with WF201A to create a vignette)

Griefbringer16 Jul 2009 6:40 a.m. PST

I thought Fat Bloke was working for another miniature company, and not even coming to Historicon this year…


camelspider Inactive Member16 Jul 2009 6:42 a.m. PST

WF201B Disgruntled Wife (use with WF201A to create a vignette)

d00d, the new codex gives you something that like totally pwnz WF201B:

WF201C – Bar Floozy WF201A could be Bonking were he Spending his Gaming Money at the Pub Instead

I have three in my army and they r0xx0r

Fat Bloke bending over the table with Plumber's Crack peeking out over his jeans.

Sysiphus Inactive Member16 Jul 2009 4:28 p.m. PST

Yes, the OFM has it….Butt-crack barbarians….useful as add-ons for medieval Scots (see Braveheart).

Covert Walrus16 Jul 2009 4:55 p.m. PST

Nice – But how about those 6mm Robots? :)

LEGION 1950 Inactive Member17 Jul 2009 6:51 a.m. PST

Tony, again I ask what is the metal Roman figure that Steve Saleh did? Mike Adams

Personal logo Der Alte Fritz Sponsoring Member of TMP17 Jul 2009 6:59 a.m. PST

Interesting concept. A promising idea for when they make "personality figures" that actually look like the real thing.

Chalfant18 Jul 2009 5:47 p.m. PST

My problem is, in 28mm I'd still only stand about 22mm tall….


vojvoda Inactive Member19 Jul 2009 7:16 a.m. PST

Darn, another missed oppertunity! There needs to be a figure of me so all those against moving can tar and feather it!

As for Roman cavalry the late Republic used allied cavalry so I do not see a need for them.

ThorLongus Inactive Member06 Aug 2009 7:21 a.m. PST

At least you have facts. When I asked questions at the meeting, there were little facts to be found. As much as you and I disagree about the move, you're not the one to be blamed for this.

donlowry06 Aug 2009 9:34 a.m. PST

Wow! And all I have to do is drive for four days, find somewhere to sleep for four nights, then win a drawing, then turn around and repeat the process in reverse! "Cool."
