Hello, everyone!

Well, it's taken me a lot longer than I expected to get set up... and I'm still not quite as set as I'd like to be. Still no website or secure store yet, but I do have my first finished castings in hand - a set of three primitive tents, and a fourth that can be used as a storage mound, tent, or even a burial.

Painted by Rob Mailander & Alex Bates

Sculpted by Dan Martinez, these primitive animal-hide structures are scaled for 28mm figures. I've included a scale pic here with this release, but in the interest of information overload, and going left to right, here are their specs:

Tent #1 is roughly oval in shape, 3 1/8" long at its longest point, 2½" wide at its widest point, and 1" tall at its tallest point.

Tent #2 is roughly triangular in shape, 3 3/8" long, 2" wide, and 1½" tall at the tallest point.

Tent #3 is roughly rectangular on its base, 3½" long, 2½" wide, and 1 3/8" tall.

Tent #4 is roughly triangular, 4" long, 2½" wide at the widest point, and 1½" tall at the tallest point.

I'm selling them for $8.50 USD each, or $32.00 USD for the set of four (a slight discount).

And here's the scale picture that I'm always complaining about when other new release pics don't include one...

At the moment, I can only take PayPal, and since I don't have a store or site set up yet, if you'd like to buy some, please send me an email at Arcticon2004@yahoo.com telling me what you'd like to order, and I'll send you an invoice through PayPal... it's not ideal, but it'll do for now.

Upcoming releases include a set of three Peafowl (two Peacocks and a Peahen) sculpted by Sandra Garrity, and a few Paleolithic odds and ends. I regularly update my blog thread here with information about upcoming projects, and you can see many more pictures of the tents there, too.

Thanks!
