Hello, not sure if this is the right section to post this. I am new here.
You probably get heaps of these messages so brace yourself because here comes another one!
On the hunt for someone to sculpt some miniatures for a board game we are thinking of developing. Currently in the design stage and it is early days yet but I like to be prepared.
Would love to hear from anyone interested.
And my apologies if this is not the right area of the site to post this!
Kind regards and happy hobbying!

As The Tyn Man said, what kind of miniatures do you need sculpted?

Stan Johansen Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Jul 2021 11:07 a.m. PST

Just a ball park for your info going rate for sculpting is at least $10.00 USD per MM.
So you need to let the sculptors know
1 how large will you need them
2 what is the subject matter
3 what do the masters need to be made of if you are going to use vulcanized rubber molds
or are you looking for 3D printed masters.

Simple, Contact Bob Naismith. Great artist, dependable, years of experience, 15 years with GW and also his own companies, works in both original greens and 3D, well known with great reputation, Not cheap.
Tell him Russ Dunaway from Old Glory sent you.

Sorry everyone, I can't figure out how to edit my original post.

Size: 28mm to 80mm depending upon the creature.
Subject Matter: Science Fiction tabletop game/boardgame

As to what the masters need to be made of, im hoping to have a discussion with potential sculptors and their recommendations.

Look and feel: Cinematic, realistic, medieval scifi.

@ShuMin it turns out we've spoken before apparently back in 2016 when I originally was interested in starting this project. I have sent you an email.
