Aces!


Hey, any way you could tell me if the slouch hat (HH043) is compatible with it? That's the big issue I've been running into. That hat is for some pretty small heads.

Anyone besides Raginspoon casting Guillotine's backpack retooled for modern figs? He's only got the kit for sale (and its sold out), and I don't think I'm gonna spend that much for a backpack.

Send one of the old ones my way, and I'll see what I can do about upgrading it to something more modern. Maybe something like I did w/ the flamethrower I did:

I have yet to buy from Shapeways, and likely won't. The prices aren't what bother me (I get high costs for "new" tech) but I do not like the output quality.

Which is disappointing because there is some great work out there modeling-wise. Giga's stuff is amazing, it's just the print quality that ruins it for me. Once the resolution gets tighter, then I'll be in.

Properly scaled? Not really. If there are they're probably on Alyosha's site.

You'd love to raid McFarlane's Rasputin, though.

Yes. Yes I would.

Well, VvV Mindbender has vials but they're molded in black. I might have to give a go at sculpting some and get them cast. Meh, why's there no 1/18 Breaking Bad set? :D

I have a mold of those, and I even include some in the mad scientist set, and I can cast them in any color you want. I'll have to go down to the shop in just a bit, but while I'm down there I'll see how many there are in the gang mold for them, and I'll let you know later. If I forget to let you know just pm, or email me, and remind me.

I will keep that in mind, definitely. Thanks!

My gang mold has 11 of the test tubes in it. I'll get a listing up for it either later this evening, or tomorrow. I've been up for over 25 hours now, so I'm gonna go get a little shut eye so I acn tackle finishing up the orders from WE 3-29-14 tomorrow, and Saturday.

Cool. Thanks again. I'll definitely be ordering those as soon as I see them up. :D

Did anyone besides Broken Arrow ever start casting a stethoscope? I was looking at my '70s Joe nurse and got to thinking I wanted her to have some accessories besides her non-functional boonie hat.

This guy on facebook is advertising some casts...he's got some presidents and he's shrinking the ghostbuster movie heads.

Angry Nomad Customs

That would be Vortious's other apprentice:D

Damn he moves fast! I remember him mentioning the GB heads like last week?
Yep he's a great guy, and REALLY good at shrinking w/ Hydroshrink. Contraband is experimenting w/ the mold shrink stuff, so I can't wait to see how his shrinks turn out.

Did Will already get the GB heads shrunken, and cast? I thought that stuff took at least 2 weeks to shrink to the right size.
