Hi Sergey! Great to see you here. Love your miniatures!
Personally, I’d love to see an update on some of the old 3rd edition war machines, as @Reaver previously mentioned. Or if you’re planning to do some more infantry, some Acolytes of Hashut. But honestly speaking, based on your previous products, anything new in the Dwarves of Fire Canyon range is likely to make it into my collection.
Thanks for everything you’ve done already for our little community.
I mentioned it in the other thread but will do so here as well. We were chatting on the discord about whirlwind and/or tenderizer re-imagination into the Dwarves of Fire Canyon style. Perhaps even turned into steam powered warmachines. Even a Skullcracker could be a good seller since it was harder to get from the Legion of Azgorh range.
I will echo @Habitual_Lurker and say something along the lines of Acolytes of Hashut could be a great choice. I own a great pile of RA infantry. I have always thought the kits to be top notch and a great value.
A chaos dwarf version of the empire steam tank, with the engineer with headswap for helm or hat is a good one. Bits to assemble a skullcracker (close combat mincing bits or a gun would be cool). Obviously there is a gap for tenderisers /whirlwinds. Macrocosm do a big roller pushed by a demon…thats it as far as competition…
Other things in the warhammer armies project include a war altar, a colossus (which could be anything big really). Your own version of an ass cannon might do well…
Have a look at the warhammer armies project 8th or 9th editions, they give me inspiration to cover every unit type, maybe they will do something similar for you?..
I am a helm enthusiast, most of your stuff is hat related, you did do some nice helm options for 1 unit recently though.
I do like that metal hobbo boss chilling on a wolf. Id like to get that someday
Initially I actually was leaning towards a mechanical version of that siege tower thing from back in the day, but I’m not sure there’s that much of a market for it. It would also be pretty expensive if it was up to size. Whirlwind/tenderiser/skullcracker seems to be more likely to sell, and probably less of a big project from sculpting/casting perspective.
War machines and artillery seem to be a favorite, based on responses here. One thing I’ve found is that models for the Whirlwind or Tenderizer seem to be scarce and often secondhand. I also think that Russian Alternative versions of those would be popular.
Making Whirlwind and Tenderiser will be popular with vintage fans, but to sell to all the gamers beyond this board, they will need to run it as a Skullcracker. So, it would be a lot like your rocket/cannon kit. A big-hat take on an Azgorh miniature.
Oh wow, a great bit of news sorely needed after being laid up in bed crook as a mangy dog! Seems my body had a delayed negative effect to this damn covid vaccine.
Welcome to CDO @Russian-Alternative I am sure your arrival is very welcomed here by your many fans, myself included. I am sure what ever you make next will get the guys here salivating and eager to part with their hard earned pocket money, again, myself included, especially if I can get PayPal to stop being dicks and let me do business with you.
