How Quar are born.


I thought these were pretty cool & thought I'd Share them here for those that haven't seen them. The two following videos were made by Josh Qualtieri who created the Quar (scroll to the bottom for a brief description) & goes by the moniker of 'Headzombie' on the Zombiesmith forum. They're the first two in a series (don't quote me on that as I'm not sure if any more are forthcoming). Anyways, its been pretty interesting to see his set up, as in all of my years of mini gaming I really had no idea as to just how minis were cast. Also this ought to provide some good insight for those interested in home casting (looks @ Warfrog...).

And for those who've not seen it, the Quar short film (which is how I discovered them when it was posted on Miniature Review).

Funny thing just happen, I just finished up a draft post on "white metal casting tutorial" Then I came over here to see this post. Very nice, I had seen this before as well as the videos that reaper minis has online about their spin casting room.
On the Ebay right now is a used spin casting set up.

only $2600 plus freight costs.

lol, I figured that of everybody I knew, you'd be the most likely to be into home casting your own stuff.

Not like I have 60 or so "Space elf snipers" from back when Craftworld eldar hit the shelves which was June of 2000 btw. Man that should make you feel old

lol, I had forgotten about that army. But, its more like the fact that Screech is close to graduating college, THAT makes me feel old!
