Sad to know indeed.

Wow. Incredibly sad news. So many wonderful ranges sculpted by Mike. I loved his artistic style that was very evident in his work. Some of the ones I consider favorites were his 15mm South American Wars of Liberation and his 28mm Sci-Fi pulp figures.

Always sad when someone of our hobby passes.

Condolences to his friends and family.

Oh no! I've always admired the many figures that he has sculpted. RIP.

A great sculptor who added so much to the hobby. :-(

A good sculptor and painter, an excellent person to game with, a great mate and just a really nice bloke. You left far too soon, Mike.

I'll second Dal's comments. Mike was a genuine craftsman who could turn his hand to any form of model making and sculpting. He was also good company, and very generous with his time and support of this learning sculptor. Thanks Mike, you'll be missed.

RIP. He was very respected as a sculptor and a person.
