Although I mainly use minis for showing relative location (and we have used lego-knights alongside 25mm minis for this), there is a definite joy in having everything look cool, if you can manage it. Going all the way back to my wargaming days, there's a real thrill in seeing a bunch of really well-painted, matched minis being used.

Having the "good looking" minis all at the same scale is a bonus over the top of a mix of coins, chessmen, lego-men, and a bunch of figures ranging from heroic 30mm to 25mm denoting relative locations. Even though relative location is all we actually USE them for.

And then after a while the matched sets seem sterile and too grown-up, and having a bunch of mismatched toys on the table becomes the ultimate in fun again. Imagination is a fickle bitch.  :D

Thanks to everyone for their comments and interest! In the next few days, I'll be posting some work-in-progress pictures of our latest sculpt from Jason Wiebe.

As of yesterday, the master models of the Peryton were being cleaned and getting readied for casting later this week - if that's the case, pre-orders should go live on Saturday or Sunday and I'll have the figures in hand for shipping early next week.

I'd like an update on these partial quote segments:

.....

One of which is a polar worm whose official name begins with an R....but shhhh, we won't call it that!

.....


Thanks for supporting old school miniature collectors.   :)

I spoke with (exchanged emails with) Jason Wiebe today, and he should have some WIP pictures of the above mentioned beastie by the end of the week.

Also discussing another much-in-demand critter with sculptor Tim Prow - that announcement will probably be even bigger than the r....polar wyrm.

Thanks, Allan, for the suggestion on that one.

:wink:

Excellent!  The prices on the r....you-know-what's are $30.00 minimum (often much more) and fragile because of all the parts.  I am hoping for something sturdier and cheaper, but I guess I should have said that six months ago.  :oops:   Still, I remain grateful for the efforts and the update.  Thanks!  :)

Iron Wind Metals informed me today that the Peryton castings as well as a re-stock of CSM-002b, Sea Devil W/Trident, will be in the mail on Friday afternoon! Pre-orders at www.centerstageminis.com are now live.

The Peryton will normally be priced at $10.95, but will be available through Sunday only for the pre-order price of $9.85. It's slightly pricier (by cents, anyway) than I had originally anticipated, but I set the original price based on a rough guesstimate of the casting costs.

Once I've got them in hand, I'll start shipping. Based on the email demand for the Peryton, I would recommend getting your orders in soon, as I fully anticipate the original casting run to sell out. I'm debating making them available individually AND in a package of three - they do run in groups (flocks)!

Tim Prow has accepted and will be getting started on the first 28mm in our Advanced Fantasy Miniatures - Planeswalkers line. It's a demon with two heads - I nicknamed her (it?) Molly Deuce.   :lol:

Good news!  I like the idea of you offering it singly and in a flock.

Couple of questions.  Is that a slotta base with flocking or a solid base or something else?  Also, could you picture that next to a ruler or a common miniature to get a better idea of size reference?  Thanks!   8)

Benjoshua, here is the Peryton next to a Warhammer Quest miniature.

Hope that helps!

Oh yeah!  I am pleased to see the solid base.  I have never been much of a slotta base kinda guy.  Thanks!  :)

Nice work, Matt, the peryton is really nice.

Want to swap some for a few Otherworld Miniatures?   :wink:

Here are some WIP pics of upcoming CSM-007, Glacial Wyrm, sculpted by Jason Wiebe.

Note that there is no detailing on these sculpts as of now, they were just forwarded so that I could see the "shape" of the wyrm.

Comments welcome!

Excellent!  I think it looks great!  I am guessing there is little to no pieces to construct, and I love the solid base (as opposed to slotta).  Finally, what's the height?  Overall, I like it!  :D

I'll see if I can get some dimensions on the sculpt from Jason.

And thanks for the compliment, Richard. PM sent.

Hey, glad to see things moving forward Matt :D  I'm also glad to hear that your two-headed Molly's got legs (so to speak...).

Well, it looks like the Glacial Wyrm is taking a little longer than expected, but I do have some WIP photos of CSM-008, a Molydeus. Sculpted by Tim Prow.

The snake head should be added today and the miniature finished up tomorrow. Will be available for an April or May release.

Thanks, benjoshua. But as the famous singer said, "You ain't seen NOTHIN' yet..."

8)

Lots more goodness coming soon! I'll post the final pics of the Molydeus when I receive them tonight or tomorrow.
