Happy New Year from Gary Hunt Miniatures!

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all customers and supporters a Happy New Year.

2012 was a busy year for me. The end was especially so, with the wrapping up of The Hobbit came the premier and the Hobbit Artisans Market where I had a stall. I released a batch of new figures for my Fantasy Warr range: Minotaurs, Satyrs, A Black Dragon and a Dwarf.

A "miniature" highlight was hanging out with the Perry twins again and Aly Morrison at work, and when I visited Games Workshop in Nottingham, they also came to the Wellington Warlords show (in Wellington), and a great honor it was when Aly bought one of my pre-painted Duke of Wellington figures.

It was great to see my work for Weta Workshop and Peter Jackson in The Hobbit movie, and also great to see some of my design Marquettes turn up in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey chronicles. Some of the images are on my Facebook.

There are now new ways to order Gary Hunt Miniatures, including a few new stockists, and discussions with more in 2013:

I have plans to get back on to sculpting the historical range, WWI, pilots, South Americans, Napoleonics, Indian etc, ideas for a few more C21 Amazon characters, and expanding the Clovis Minotaur and Satyr army, and other races including more Dwarfs…

Regal Toy Soldiers recently released the Imperial Camel I sculpted for them.

As a sideline, I am also producing fine-art pieces: Wildlife Sculpture, and am part of the Miramar Penninsular Arts Trail and the show on, Artist in Action on Saturday/Sunday 9th/10th March.

Digital fantasy portraiture, assembled Dragons, and jewelry will soon be added to my website…

I and Regal Toy Soldiers are currently preparing a stall for Wings Over Wairarapa, one of New Zealand's premier airshows, during Friday 18-Sunday 20 January 2013 at Hood Aerodrome, Masterton. See wings.org.nz for more information about the event.

All the Best!
