Oh... btw... do you make Cyclone Missile Launchers?
Cyclone missles, no as I'm not doing anything specificly aimed at GW lines.
Missle launchers however will most definitely happen.
Anybody that's read my older posts know I'm a huge fan of samurai stuff and decent samurai swords are impossible to find, I've never found any that have a very reaslistic look. That said I decided to make my own.

Hey Paulson, those are some extremely nice, and very detailed swords. That Ogre-Daichi is HUGE!
Of course it's huge, it's meant for Ogres afterall
Japanese legend has plenty of Ogres and Ogre Magi and they are all pretty huge monsters so I wanted a large two handed sword worthy of being used by a big nasty ogre. It's sized so that it should fit most any 54mm scaled model. (and still be large)
With the Battletech 25th aniversary box set release I've returned to playing battletech as my primary gaming interest and I'm working on some custom mech parts and gearing up to do a couple complete mecha styled models. That of course means high tech weaponry and giant robot love. I've been a fan of Robotech since I was a kid and battletech was the first gaming product I ever bought. I was 10 years old when it came out, and man that makes me feel ancient but also has a lot of fond memories attached to it. Last time I played it was almost 10 years years ago, but some things are just classic and the ruleset is virtually the same as when I had left off so is it a welcome change of pace and it was very easy to get back into the groove of playing. (IMO they still have one of the best miniatures systems ever)
Anyways here's a couple of inprogress parts that are just about ready for printing. I'll probably make them in two seperate scales, one sized for btech scale which floats between 30-55mm depending on the model, and then a second larger version which will fit some 60-90mm tall models that I'm planning on doing .
Here's some concept art of one of the mech design I have in mind and plan on building for my own miniatures game:
