The size would explain the 75 dollar retail. I initially thought that was the standard mark up for the large items from kick starter to retail but it is a special case. Glad I got one but no idea where I am going to put it though.

You can store it at my house if you'd like.

 

I didn't order one :(

so am i crazy that, now that i;ve seen it,, i;m thinking of ordering a Nethyrmaul

when its released just so i can take putty to it and sculpt it as a LIVING dragon as

opposed to undead-ish

 

  1. Yes; you're crazy. Worst case of figmentia I've seen.
  2. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

If I thought my sculpting skills where half way up to the challenge, i would be joining in on doing something like that. I don't like dracoliches for something to display, which is why i didn't order him or kaly

same here

So can anyone explain how such a mix-up is possible? I thought they cast them directly from a master. How did they make a mold way too big?

 

They use the masters to create 3d digital renderings which are then carved into a block of steel. The digital files can be scaled anyway they want.

 

Sounds like you're probably imagining something closer to how the molds for the metal castings are made.

I don't know the process for the Bones, but I know from following Mantic that they actually sculpt the originals meant for their hard plastic injection sprues at 3 times the size of the final miniature. The masters are smaller copies based of that original.

Huh, interesting. I didn't realize there was much difference between the casting process of Bones and metal, just material. I'm impressed they can get that much detail from a digital scan!
