"After 6 years of fighting the system, it seems likely that my daughter will be able to go to a specialist school that can cater to her needs. That means that after 12 years of not being able to get a regular job as I have to be on hand for her 24/7 I may now be able to get at least minimum wage.
A regular 9-5 with paid leave, sick pay and all that jazz, sounds like heaven!! IF we can get her a place at a specialist provision that means I won't need to run Crom's Anvil, as such it will go up for sale."
Now, the placement for my daughter has not been agreed but I am sufficiently hopeful that it will be, as such Mark of CP Models has now bought the range and is hoping to have it live early 2022.
Many thanks to everyone that has supported me and Mark already has plans brewing for moar heroic adventure!!
Istaris is a sumerian snake god. Known as the devourer of heretics.
Istaris has a long and bloody history and is not widely accepted amongst the civilised nations.
Its practices are often outlawed and as such what followers there are tend to practice his worship in secret.
It is said that Istaris was a mighty sorcerer from times long forgotten and that he turned his followers into hideous deformed snake people. What became of these people no-one knows, but some say they live amongst us, in secret, carrying out their dark masters wishes from beyond the veil of death.
They say, their purpose is to herald the return of Istaris and to aid him in making all in his image and to kill those who resist.
The way my figures are cast is in packs.
A mould with the tribal warriors yields 2 packs each time it is spun.
Great for selling packs.
However, when selling singles you hit problems.
I had a situation once where someone ordered 50 tribal archers.
Which meant spinning the mould 25 times, this then left 50 spare axe1, 50 spare axe2 and 50 spare spears.
I have still not recovered from this overstock.
It is the same with all the packs to some degree.
I am sitting on dead stock at the moment.
This is where you can buy the dead stock at reduced prices!
So my gaming life saw me return to WFB but in 10mm and had/has me hunting around for models that I could use as Empire troops.
By rummaging about in various fantasy and historical lines I managed to get pretty much all I needed except flagellants.
So I had my regular 15mm sculptor do me some 10mm religious zealots, drawing from historical sketches but with a few fantasy touches.
It was cheaper to have him sculpt 3 poses and for me to mould them to get a unit of 10 than for him to make 10 sculpts.
And as I have a mould of them, it seems silly not to offer them for sale.
