I've now got a complete set and first impressions are that they are going to be a nightmare to put together. They each come in parts so Death's arm is separate to his body and his sword. The join points seem to be very loosely fitting and will need glueing to hold them together properly.

I'll look at them properly again and let you know.

Duct tape is such a sticky nightmare, I tell Mr Dotsie (who's a brickie) that the only people who use it are builders and kidnappers :shock:

So I'm glad to hear you're in construction :D

There seems to be quite a shortage of Discworld-themed merchandise to adorn your book collection with... but maybe that's a good thing! The word 'merchandise' has bad connotations, at least in my eyes.


Go to www.discworldemporium.co.uk and click on Shop, and join the 41 Thrall Legion (and make sure your credit card is fully charged- it starts small, but increases exponentially)

WELCOME! :D

Ive just recieved a set of these as a prezzie, and as Jason said, they come in bits.
I havent opened the boxes yet because it looks like i may need a steady hand & some concentration- something i definately wont have the nearer it gets to Christmas!

I was disappointed they didnt come with any paint though...?

I am a miniature painter (mainly for role-playing games and boardgames) and Terry Pratchett enthusiast (have all of his books, read many, many times) so these figures are PERFECT for me!

I have offered a miniature painting service for the last 5 years and would be happy to paint these by commission. If anyone is interested please PM or email me.

I could not find a painting service on the excellent Micro Art Studio website, which is why I thought about offering my own here, if this seems inappropriate for this forum, please accept my apologies.

New "greens"

Postby TiannaStarfall » Fri Dec 12, 2008 11:26 am

I have just seen that there are three more figures to be added to the collection - the "greens" (that is the green resin original sculptures that will be made into metal miniatures) have been shown the coolminiornot website by the artist Kul Asyrk (all his work can be seen here http://www.coolminiornot.com/artist/Kul%20Asyrk).

They are Susan Sto Helit, “Nobby” Nobbs and The Luggage.

I for one am very impressed :D
