DSM Goes Live!

As per my last post I am going to be out of work come Thursday as my Department is being shut down.

Not going to sit on my laurels however!
To remedy my need for money I am going to go Live Full Time with my Miniatures Company as of next week. I will be available 9am-5pm weekdays for consultation as per the Commissions statement (also in my last post) via Email, or even Phone if you are a Brisbane local.
As I have not yet got my web-store completely sorted out I will be taking initial orders via email requests and selling castings in white metal on Ebay.

I am starting with a small number of generic, yet quite quirky minis, one of which had some work done tonight that you can check out here.

I may get bogged down as I have been approached by a fledgeling Board Games Company to potentially sculpt a number of figures for them to get drop poured as gaming pieces. Additionally I am also offering local companies CAD outsourcing support under hourly rates, so some days I will get to do something a little different. But don't worry I have a trained servitor on hand to do castings and bag up orders. So do not fear, I will get you your goods if you order some.

So remember: no matter how bad things can seem, something good is bound to happen if you give to others.

On that note don't forget to Donate to the Storm Wardens Project as every dollar helps!

When Life Gives You Lemons...

Make some Lemonade!

So I haven't been around a lot for the last couple of weeks because Life has taken a detour from what was normal for me. For the first time in seven years I find myself without direction or a partner for moral support. Add to that my Department being shut down this Thursday means I will be out of work, possibly for a while.
Not letting it get me down though!

For One I am taking Painting/Sculpting/Converting Commissions again. Something I have had on hold for a couple of months due the Titan Project.
Full details can be found here.

Secondly I am going to be clearing some of my stuff on Ebay, generally stuff I don't need, but I will post a list on here for a couple of days before launching the Auction so that anyone who is interested has a chance to make me an offer. Some of the items will include some of the rare/oop miniatures and other hobby related stuff that I have multiples of, so keep your eyes peeled.

Thirdly I am going to seriously get cracking on the production of my own resin multi-piece kits. I have a few ready to make master moulds of and a few more half done. If you want some unique stuff for what I would call a reasonable price I will be selling them on Ebay to start and later in my webstore when I can fix the SQL Database and upgrade my hosting plan. If you have anything specific you want don't hesitate to email me as per the commissions link above.

Lastly I am taking a full week away for the first time in 18 months, to get my affairs in order and take a break to get my head back on straight. If you place any requests between the 9th and 16th of this month I may not get back to you until the 16th.

Just did a painting session with the lads tonight and got a full 10 minis 90% done in one sitting. So already I am making progress towards something.

Till next time
