Howling Hounds (a.k.a. Manshees) are done!

I finished sculpting the Howling Hounds and shipped them out to Chapterhouse Studios this week.

This project has taken way longer than I had anticipated.  But I'm rather pleased at what I manage to achieve with the wacky idea of doing a male version of the banshees.

The pack was given their weapons and then their arms were removed to make them easier to cast.

I kind of dread this part since the process of separating the arms from the body inevitably results in some damage to the figure; which then requires touch up sculpting. 
Fortunately there wasn't any serious mess to clean up this time. 

The Packleader has 3 weapons options:
 The trsiskele weapon option:

 The dual Sword weapon option:

The Glaive weapon option:

Female Marine Combat Squads are Ready to Go!

It took a long time but the female space marines resin castings are finally ready.

For those fellow gamers out there interested in getting your hands on some of these female marines for your own, Jacqualine47 has graciously offered to help in making them available to us.

Please contact her directly by e-mail: for further details.

It is thanks to her generous efforts that I can finally offer them to you. Thank you Jacqualine!

Currently the available kit consists of 5 female marines, one of each sculpt as shown in the pic below:

In the Dark Grimness of the Far Future, there is Only War -- and Misogyny, apparently :)
One with torso/arms/legs, two with torso/legs, one separate legs/torso with plain breastplate, and one separate legs/torso with aquila -- plus five different un-helmeted head sculpts and five helmeted head sculpts that include two standard marine helmets, one company champion helmet, one beakie helmet, and one open-face helmet.

Thanks for your patience and continued support. I will be continuing to support this project by completing the assault squad set and sculpting additional figures and parts.
