Been out of circulation for a little while, just about back now!
Mid November our latest set of minis – the PlasticPopulation went off the Griffin Miniatures for the production of a master mould and subsequent production mould. Had a wee issue with a ProCreate muscle coming loose on the MisPrint in the Master Mould. Griffin helped tidy things up for the production mould but meantime I mis-communicated what I wanted in it, so we got our usual first rate service, but just not of what I had needed to ask for. Ayit! As we say here in Scotland.
Reflections and tips to self – don’t post panicky blogspots for it will attract the fates. Name nothing “MisPrint” or you deserve all you get! Oh and check carefully what you ask for – always mit der two pairs of eyses.
However, everything in PlasPop Batch One is now painted up in my usual probably inadequate style and ready to go for sale shortly! Sneakster Peekster:
Intervening Xmas and a January to make Hell look like Venice and finally we are back on track. The next and final batch of PlasPops: a female drone, the poor MissHap, Professor Polyphemus scion of evil himself, his trusty Rubber Gollum and his feared Plastic Population Printer are on their way. Sneaksy Peeksy Part 2:
A late addition to the Printer is the Vat Venus, Polyphemus’ Malevolent Midwife, who will probably pop up in one special offer or another.
She is hopefully feminine rather than pneumatic, but with the aim as stature, not nurture. This ain’t Mother Nature, no sir!
This wee broadcast is dedicated to my dad, Hugh, simply the most important person ever to leave my life. Dad, I’m not quite clear how I’m meant to do this life thing without you in it (it turns out you were in fact at the very the centre of it, although I confess I had not until now realised). Wherever you are, I hope you like what I am up to.
