I've been asking for years and live locally in Utah, so I get to be your first resin cast customer, yes? :)
You're 3rd on the list, I'm afraid. Animesensei is also on the list and he's local too.
Bah, I'll happily take 3rd.

No problem at all, credit where credit is due! Your work is enjoyable. I have been meaning to buy molds, but a lot of my miniature spending has been curbed by life's necessities. Hopefully I will be getting some from both yourself and Mr. Hirst soon. I prefer to buy premade for most things and save the time I have for some painting and making unique set pieces. I think that some forget not everyone has the same needs or lifestyle. I wish I had more time to craft, but if I want enough nice terrain to really game or make dioramas with I would have to take too much time from other things that also need and deserve my attention. I'm glad for the folks whose priorities allow for making tons of cool custom HA stuff to game with, I'm just not one of them for now. Plus I enjoy being able to contribute in small ways through my purchases to the various companies making cool stuff available. We may be part of a pretty niche hobby, but there is still room for quite a bit of variety.
My husband wants me to start offering resin casts of my molds on my website for those who don't have the time or equipment to cast for themselves. He's offered to learn how to do it so I can focus on sculpting new pieces. So once I get something working, I'll be sure to announce it.

Thank you. And I agree that there are some folks who fervently defend HA above all others. I was one of them, actually. Mostly because I can't use DF for the same things I use HA for... fireworks. But Bruce Hirst commented that he often saw an increase in mold sales during DF KS so he wasn't worried. I've since realized the charm of DF and support both fully.

I do read the HA forums now and then. There is a part of that crowd that is rather aggressively opposed to premade terrain, which I find a bit off putting. There is quite a bit of wonderful info about techniques and crafting there though, so it is a place I have gone for some ideas now and then. I'm very glad you began posting here, I've enjoyed your work and your "work in progress" shares both.

All this talk about "aggressive casters" on the HA forum, sounds like either a random encounter just waiting to happen, or a magico-political conspiracy. Let me check my CR to see if I can handle it...nope, I'll just stay on the DF forums. I am but a lowly orc.

I never would have gotten the opportunity to sculpt for DF if I hadn't posted pics here of things I've sculpted. And I wouldn't be sculpting at all if it wasn't for the Hirst Arts forums. So I'd like to think that DF's open policy (and HA's) has done some good for the 3D terrain community. It has for me at least... :)

I like to tell myself it was my nudge to get you over here that helped, but that's just me making myself feel better. :) Your work stands on its own.
