We decided the best way to capture all the amazing detail was to produce in resin, and I have to say the miniatures our production vendor casts are the very best I have even seen - there is practically no difference from the original sculpt. We chose the highest quality resin they had, and each miniature is cast in a short run production mould to ensure the highest quality possible. The Raven Priest is fantastic to paint - I can honestly say that I have never painted a better casting - even metal master castings don't compare... We are only producing Studio McVey miniatures as strict limited editions - and including a signed and numbered certificate with each one.
Sorry, that's enough sales talk! Ali and I are really excited to be launching the Raven Priest, and it will hopefully be the first of many - we plan to be releasing new miniatures on a fairly regular basis from this point on (as long as they prove popular!), and every one will be of the same quality as the first.
The painted version above is Ali's, and I think she did a great job of capturing the character and drama of the sculpt. I have been working on one too (we have been having a little personal competition...), and will be showing it here in the next couple of days, along with some other bits and pieces, like the original concept art.
We hope you like the first miniature!
