Earlier today I posted a piece by concept artist Heath Foley, talking about the early stages of the design process that eventually results in shiny new miniatures. I thought it would be nice to skip ahead to the end of that process and look at how those models get out to you, the gamers!

With that in mind (and with the trusty Mantic Flipcam in hand) I ventured down to the warehouse to catch up with Alberto, who (among other things) is responsible for spin-casting the metal models in our range. As someone who grew up with armies made predominantly of metal figures, I’ve always been fascinated by the process, and our resident Spaniard was more than happy to talk me through it.

I’ll be putting up a few more of these videos between now and the end of the week, each one showcasing a different part of the process that turns our concepts and designs into boxes on the shelf of your local gaming store. I hope you find this as interesting as I did!

I didn’t drop the camera in the molten metal, and I consider that a victory. If you want to get your hands on the very miniatures you can see being cast here, head over to the Ogres and Goblins advance order pages!

What did you think? What do you want to see next? Get some comments below and I’ll see what I can film for you!
