Down Side of being a one man band

There are issues with being a on man show.
Especially when you have several projects on the go at once.
Sculpting wise I am working on the Deities for Herenkoa, I am working on Models for District and I am working on all manner of Monsters which are for Herenkoa but would work in any fantasy war game to be honest.

The problem is not only am I the sculptor, I am also the writer, the artist and the web guy. On top of this the day job is incredibly busy at the moment as is always the way in the winter months.

An while I am a head of schedule until the end of March for models and sculpts and releases I am behind on writing, web design and other bits and tiny stuff.

As of tomorrow being the 28th I will not be printing any more of the present range of 90mm models and once they are gone they are gone. This at least gives me 3 days to catch up with other bits.
Any one that follows me on twitter will know I am working on the first of the Deities which is planned to appear some time around April. There is no print time on these guys there will be a set number once I am finished with the design and that is all there ever will be. I was thinking 21. 20 for sale and 1 for me.

I have a total of how many Deities to do for Herenkoa?

As for District, that is all going fairly straight forward, has been tested to death so it is just a case of getting models done and printed and sitting looking pretty.

Yet once again one man band. Until I start shipping or producing enough for me to pack in the day job, hire help and get everything rolling.

Right web site work now. While test prints run.

Work In Progress

Now I have finished doing the work on the Troll line I was working on.
An it is n interesting line only has 3 models so far but I do plan to expand this over time.
Photos will be attached at the bottom and they will all appear fairly soon. Though I will probably only be doing the Cyclops in 90mm scale and keep the rest at gaming scale, though this might change if I get enough interest in the big ones. There will still be 90mm models appearing as they are easier to do. I sculpt large and then shrink down to gaming scale though this would appear to mainly be 54/65mm as thats the best resolution I get with the printer so expect a lot of larger monsters over anything else.

2nd Alien is well under way just got to work out the arms and leg situation and how to cut them up.
But this is all very side way from what the blog was actually about this was a work in progress update.

I am working on DISTRICT once more, the game mechanic is close enough to complete that I should finish the game and with the new software and hardware I am now able to really work on some amazing bits for it. Though these bit's will probably not be available for a while, I need to do some research on getting the game mass produced in a box and what it will cost and so on before I go down this route. So I want to get it all done and ready, though the models and the rules will be available by July. This is the planned moment of it becoming available.

The PDF version will always be free, will have all the rules in. It won't have art work, Or fleshed out fluff I am saving the bulk of that for the printed edition. But you'll be able to play and that is the idea of a game isn't it.

Models wise for that well the first 90mm District Character will be available from February 1st.
It is already lined up to be a character model for the 54mm range.
More info on that to come on the web site.

Along with a lot more information on Herenkoa, mainly looking at the races which of course you could use in any game that you play as a counts as model if you wanted too.

So thats the news. Am working on District have nearly everything up to April releases ready to go and I am working on getting the first game finished.

Here are some pictures.

2015 Final Gamez is BACK

Okay not in the same capacity, it's now part of the final-earth.co.uk  site.
An more of a random designed models. Collectables.
Monthly 3up's (90mm) high models.
Varying 70mm High Busts.
Random other bits and pieces.

If you like the models share the site with your friends.
If this works then I will be using the profits to expand and then build up the war gaming stuff once more. The rules in PDF will be free to download, though the books will of course cost once produced and while the PDF format will have the rules for game play I plan on trying to do something extra for the print versions once more though down to cost as I really don't want the game to be over priced and sticking with in the pocket money level.

Starting out at the moment the models available will be around for a little bit longer than usual.
Though once things start to move then every month the models will change.
