New pastures

Postby MAGNA » Thu Dec 01, 2016 11:11 am

I have taken the plunge and got into my own startup business. I have started with 1/72 scale buildings and will hopefully progress from there into goodness knows what else.

Unfortunately postal rates mean I will probably have to limit sales to Australia.

European Medieval style.

Just finishing prototypes for WWII emplacements and bunkers so I will post them as I go.
If anyone has any bright ideas let me know. I have a few new methods for all this and
they work quite well.

Very cool, mate!!!! Love the work you've done and I wish you the very best of luck in the enterprise. Providing pre-pained miniatures terrain is definitely not over-sayurated, so I would expect you get a brisk business.

Make sure to post on the Facebook group page for a wider audience (make sure to lead them back here ;) ). I think the Bolt Action crew will go nuts for these!!! Also, the facebook group Wargamer's Marketplace may be just what you need for sales.

So what are these made of? Are you doing full construction? ...from scratch or bought and painted?
If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

Thanks for the tips on advertising there son.

Yes, they are from scratch with techniques I am still developing but a couple that really help to keep the price down.

They are made from a variety of materials but I can say that the safety level of these is high as most bits are wood or fibre and glues, fillers and most paints are water based.

I am trying to do this from the point of view of a cheapskate (me). So adding value is paramount.

More to come as I go and maybe it can others to make some of their own stuff too.
