Now that I'm done sculpting the hounds and have finished the first worm, I am looking over here in the USA to see I can contact anyone interested in casting up what I've sculpted.  My contact here was with TCS, a Rhode Island based company, but the company was sold to someone I do not know.

I'm sending email with pictures of the hounds and the new worm to Pendraken tonight.  I'll keep you all posted.

I haven't yet mentioned casting up sculpts from other folks (like all you reading this thread).

I've been asked what I'm looking for in payment.  What are the going rates for sculpting new figures these days?

Ed

You might be better off asking the pricing question on TMPs sculpting board. I have no idea about pricing.

http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/topics.mv?id=31

or this yahoo group

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/1listSculpting/

or ask this guy

http://www.michaellovejoy.com/10mm/10mm.html

love those dryads shame they've never been produced. The rest is a bit hit and miss.

they are unlikely to do the hounds for you as they are conversions of GW scuplts and would violate copyright. The worms maybe alright but again they may not want to do them as they are similiar to millisaurs and may infringe IP. you have to be very careful with this stuff the figures can't contain any identifiable GW parts and must be generic enough that GW can't claim IP infringement if your going to get a third party to produce them for you.

That might all sound a bit rich coming from me given the work I've done  :P but I'm just giving you the "official" position and Pendraken are an actual company who will want to protect themselves

Nice sculpts by the way.

I think I mailed this guy about a 10mm goblin hewer.
Let's just say the quote was very high!

DaveC, I looked at the links you provided.  Thanks!  I will need to spend more time reading those.

I already ran into the copyright issue when talking to Pendraken.  I will have to sculpt my own hounds in order for him to cast my Hounds of Tindalos.  This will be an interesting challenge! 

I'm hoping I can come to an agreement with Pendraken soon.  I'm hoping I can sell 3 poses for the worm, because I think that would make for a more intersting mix than the two I first thought of.

I sent the greens of the worms to Pendraken today. 

In my initial email to Dave at Pendraken, I asked if he would consider unsolicted work.  I also described what the work was.  Once he saw the pictures of the worms, he was interested in more sculpts.

So far the relationship is going well.  I will let you all know when Pendraken updates their website with the new products annoucement.

Here's the announcement on the Pendraken forums:

Is anyone else interested in submitting to Pendraken?

I think that might run into the big old GW IP wall...

But then that would be under Pendraken responsibility I guess?
I mean, before accepting DaveC work they would evaluate if their is any IP issue.
Furthermore, ogres are basically big naked humanoid monster. Nothing as distinctive as High-Elves e.g. no?
