We have our range of Sumerian's in 15mm ready for despatch. These are from our Sculptur'Z range. They are sculpted in a totally new way, 3D then printed out. From that point they are produced in the same way using vulcanised moulds and cast in white metal.

3D sculpting gives a far superior master to the old wire and greenstuff. It's got to be seen to believe the detail and finish on the final casting. If anything it's the casting material that lets it down. Pewter/white metal just isn't fine enough to reproduce the detail from the original.

It's taken us 2 years to finally get a handle on the complexities of sculpting, printing then moulding. It has been worth it, the results are astounding. There is no down side to 3D. Well none that I can find.
Have a look on our site for 15mm and for the 28mm equivalents CP Models.

Just looked on the website, they do look superb, hard to realise that they are 15mm. These are a real step up in quality.

Although the Sumerians are of no interest to me, I look forward to seeing what future projects Museum release using these techniques.

Beautiful figures Ė I've wondered why it has taken so long to get 3D masters for casting in metal!

I suspect the 15mm plastics available are 3D sculpted (especially tanks and vehicles), but these may be the first I've seen in metal in this scale (vs. plastic).

Are these "true" 15mm, or do they measure up to the 18mm size? Museum's wire and putty sculpts are a bit on the large size as well, so these should be compatible.

A picture posted on Fanaticus discussing this that may be useful.

Another photo on that thread shows some more of the Museum figures and, my word, they look so crisp and clean they almost cry out for a lick of paint!

Oh, what a time to be alive! Smart move on Museum Miniatures' part. Back in the day they were the best sculpts around, but since then the mantle has been claimed by newer firms such as Xyston.
