David's post:

"Ok, So I didn't want to be that guy that gives news and couldn't produce results. Those who know me I have been a fan of Frank Frazetta since I was about 9 years old looking at the Molly Hatchet record covers at K Mart. I wasn't sure who he was till I was older and by then I was hooked. So no longer in the shadows do I have to do my Death Dealer miniatures, I have the Frazetta contract signed and in hand. The contract as it stands right now is to do 7 Death Dealer miniatures fully licensed. I have the first 5 sculpted and the first production mold of Death Dealer #1 finished. We have had all of the original sculpts approved by Frank Jr and Lori Frazetta.
We just need to get the remaining molds done and the packaging approved and they will be available.
They will be for sale to begin with from The Frazetta Museum, both on the site and the actual museum as well as on our site and eventually those who are distributers. Here are photos of the first. and I will have more of the others as we have the molds done and working.
We hope to have them ready to go by the end of April.
they are 32mm, all of them will be multiple part pewter castings with a resin base."

Awesome! I met Jim Silke at SDCC a few years back. Got a signed sketchbook from him and chatted a while. Back then I asked him if they ever considered a Death Dealer movie and he said it was too much of a hassle. He doesn't get enough credit for Death Dealer. I love Frazetta's work and even have one of his limited DD statues on my bookshelf but Jim is Gath's daddy. Frank just gave him a badass look.

I have this pic as my phone lock screen, along with my cover page on 'book. Love it!

I think I want that hanging over my fireplace!!

 

 

I want that as a 54mm mini!!!!

 

It strikes me as more the sort of thing you have done as a giant bronze statue placed in the most conspicuous part of your entry way. Or.. perhaps as a topiary.. ooh..

I pre-ordered mine weeks ago...
As for a Giant statue, look for 3 Corps Death Dealer, FT Hood TX, and see one!

The day that I arrived at Hood, the post newspaper had the pic on the front page, saying that the "Phantom Corps" had just been granted the rights to use the image as a symbol...
I got there in 1986, the statue was unveiled in 2011 (?)
Still have my copy of the paper, and the promotional poster. ..

 

Went and got a pic...

      You'll take my life, but I'll take yours too
      You'll fire your musket, but I'll run you through
      So when you're waiting for the next attack
      You'd better stand, there's no turning back
       

       
      I'm going to be building/converting/sculpting my own copy of Eddie from this artwork. I'm just going to do the central figure, not the battlefield around him.
       
      For those who don't know, the song 'The Trooper' is based on the Charge of the Light Brigade, an action during the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.
       
      So, before I get started, a question:
       
      The artist who did this piece (Derek Riggs) applied a little creative license to the flag that Eddie is carrying. It is not historically accurate to the best of my knowledge and research. If you know differently, please enlighten me.
       
      When I get to that point, do I try to recreate the flag as seen in the artwork, or go with something a little more accurate? Or is that a detail that most people will not notice?

      Here's 2 beetle swarms that I knocked out pretty quick this weekend. 
       
      One basic brown, and the other with a more metallic look to them.
       
      Let me know what you think.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
