|Union Infantry Prototype|
I wanted to answer a couple of questions that have come my way. This pose and the pose below were sculpted for our Union Infantry set that never quote got finished. I'm talking to my Hong Kong manufacturer to get some quotes on running a short run of these figures, along with a couple other poses that were done. It will probably be a grouping of 8 figures in 4 poses. I'm in the process of gathering numbers right now, and possibly making a few changes to the figures to spruce them up, and then we'll go from there.
We're still sculpting an entirely new figure set in a different era. I'm expecting a few more Work in Progress photos this week, and will post when they become available. This one will still be quite a ways off in terms of production, so I thought in the meantime, we might revisit these Civil War sculpts and see if we could shake the dust off and finally pull the trigger on them.
Needless to say, toy soldier manufacturing is a risky proposition (it helps in that I'm not trying to pay myself a salary or anything like that. I'm just looking to make enough to finance the next set). IF IF IF IF IF everything pans out, and this starts to look like a real possibility, we'll be relying on collectors like you to help spread the word!
2013 should be fun!
