seriously E-P-I-C, kudos points if you know who this woman is. :shifty:

Finishing up these zombies, got 5 more to make, then its on to the Soviet Ape Soldiers, except for the Ape Soldiers, im thinking im going to make them more cyborg like, than the traditional 'Planet of the Apes' comic book style.

Im in dubbya dubbya twoo mode at the moment, ill get a few 1/35 Strigoi conversion head bits going, a few werewolf conversion bits, then jump ahead to the 1980's Return of the Living Dead-ish punk rock zombies, then ill temporarily halt it, to get some 54mm skirmish minis going 'NIGHT OF THE LIVING FOWL' :lmao: ( zombie chickens & redneck zombies :picknose: Lets call them... 'Dednecks'. rofl rofl rofl  Dancing Chicken [V1] )
lots of stuff happening on the 54mm scale, then its back to some 1/35 WWI Steampunk zombies. :shifty:

messing around on DA when i should be working. Ive been on a euphoric high, since the wholesaling began. :shifty:

Over 80 total designs now. 100 is just a stone's throw away. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: 



Stuck in a timewarp these days...

CRAP! I only just filled that last order, and they're already back for more! faintstare

Alrightey then. Not just the UK, but there are ppl in other countries also now asking. :paranoid:

Some things I need to find out:

1.People are now asking about 'starter packages' and minimums. So whats a reasonable minimum order? *SH*T* Iduno, 25 pcs. total? :shrug: that would mean if theyre going to regularly stock 5 designs, then they would start out with 5 each. :smoking: I think thats very reasonable, but seeing hows ive never worked in retail, i wouldnt know. :paranoid:

2. That last order-they didnt even bother with a 'minimum', they just came and completely cleaned us out. faintstare So then, if someone is running both an online retail, and 'brick & mortar' storefront, what do you figure their customer base is?
So I asked a friend. His answer? "Easily ten thousand." was his reply.

WHA?

ten, th- th- th- thhhhh- ...Ugh! faintstarefaintstarefaintstare

So how many customers does it take to successfully run a retail store, im wondering. And of that number, lets say 5-10 percent are going to then buy our product, what kind of number are we looking at... :paranoid:

Im like Gandalf, sitting at Bilbo's table. Riddles in the dark.


Things to ponder... :smoking:


------------------------------------------------------------
ugh...

that last wholesale order took almost 4 days to completely fill. I think I've fainted.

Revive Emoticon  

'depleted almost the entire stock. its going to take atleast the next week, to completely restock it all. faintstare up til 3 am packing it all, almost didnt make it to the post office in time. :paranoid:

but this isnt bad, its good, as very soon stuff will be available for purchase in the UK.

dont know why, but at first i wasnt mentally ready for this, but ive embraced it now. And soon, ill be taking on more orders.

so, weeeell... I guess this is it. :shifty:

moving into the next phase of things now. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

:shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: seems like only yesterday, i was sitting at my desk making these silly little things...
bipolar, but stuck in happy mode now :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: then i broke the switch off behind me. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

la-la-la-la-la (nope, sorry, cant hear U) :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

*AHEM*

filling another wholesale order, this time its a big one, soon ppl will be able to buy locally in the UK. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin:

finishing up some of these zombies, then ill get moving on the Ape Soldiers.

Monolith Models.

before this is over, they will know the name. :paranoid:


dug out all my old horror-punk albums, stuck in a time warp now. :turbopoke:

horror movies, and gory video games... by dreamfloatingby
horror movies, and gory video games...
well, this marks a milestone in my life. I have made peace with what has transpired, the past is behind me, and im able to make monsters again. There was a period in my life where i wasnt able to make anything monstrous. eeeh, long story short, i was a young kid, i was naive, starry-eyed, (not to mention, way too trusting) and well, the industry can be quite brutal.

anyhoo, ive long since had my second awakening, ive moved past a lot of things, and the love for sci-fi horror movies is back in me. :meditation:

if anything, ive been watching waay too many horror movies as of late. :shifty:

so what are these? 1/35 scale conversion head bits. :Shifty: the idea, is you can take any 1/35 scale models (Tamiya, Verlinden, Dragon, Squadron Products, Warriors Scale models, M4, Live Resin, etc,etc,etc) and convert them into zombies.
started out with headsets, now full body sets are going into moulding, next im going to be making some Soviet Ape Soldiers, Romanian Strigoi (vampires), maybe a few wolf soldats (werewolves), later a few partisan golems ( ...Hulk, SMASH? :lmao: im going to enjoy making those, btw :shuffelin:) , and some Native American Windingos with tiny busted open crates & parachutes, air-dropped behind enemy lines to wreck hovoc.

Beyond that, (as it already looks like this is a worthwhile venture) fast forward in time: a few Chernobyl mutated zombies, a few punk rock zombies from the 1980's, and finally ending with a few 'militarized Return of the Living Dead -ish, 'bio-weapons' zombies: movieboozer.com/wp-content/upl…

(oh, and a few WWI SteamPunk zombies too. :shuffelin: :shuffelin: :shuffelin: )

so whats' a Soviet Ape Soldier, you ask?

if you've got about 40 minutes of time to waste, they'll tell you all about it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=REA3V-…

mental candy for conspiracy theory buffs. :shifty:


modelling wise, I worked in castaline as you can see in the picture, i find it best for that teeny tiny detail, doing those tiny zombie teeth definitely tested my skill. (not to mention patience) Initial runs are being pressure cast at the moment, later they will be spin-cast in much higher volumes.

almost 80 designs now. before you know it, we'll break 100. :shuffelin:

I was wondering if anyone in Asia knew of free games to download/browser based to play on tablets. I bought a family member a tablet overseas, and now everyone has tablets to stay in touch. wondering if there were cool games they could play, but they have to be able to do it on a tablet. :epic: 

and a belated happy new year. :shifty:

so what have i been up to? zombies: www.monolithmodels.com/zombie-…

yep. :shifty:

now with these new WW2 supernatural models going into production, almost 80 designs total now. :shifty: 

begun filling wholesale orders now, where things go from here, i guess we'll just have to wait and see. :shifty: these are uncharted waters being sailed into. :shifty:

Happy New Year. partay - NaNoEmo - day 3 Party New year 2016

So what happened to your contortionist statues? They were a beauty to see.

Beautiful pieces I'd love to see your portfolio sometime on a site that's a bit better than DA. I had to search for several minutes to find your art because it was being tossed around Tumblr with no artist credit and I'm glad I did find you, you deserve the credit and praise for that piece.
