Artscale Imperial Fist – Charity Auction


Look what came in the post yesterday. It’s so weird to see something I made painted so amazingly well. As much as I’d like to keep it, this model is now up for auction on ebay, 100% of the proceeds will be going to the Birmingham Dogs Home Charity, who sadly need all the money they can get this time of year. The auction will last 10 days.

A big thank you goes out to Rafael (Volomir) for the amazing paint job and excellent photos. Find his website here: http://volomir.blogspot.com

Here’s the link to the actual auction for anyone interested in bidding: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200867791829

Please go out of your way to let your blog readers, friends, acquaintances and mortal enemies know about the auction. Fingers crossed it’ll fetch a nice price.

I’m also listing my Inquisitor and Truescale Grey Knight as a second auction to help boost the final donation. They’re not as well painted but the conversions and rather nice if I do say so myself: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200867874124


I’m proud to be able to report that these three minis have managed to raise £347 for the Birmingham Dog Home.

Thank you to everyone who bid on or helped spread word of the auction. It is very much appreciated.

    not sure were to post this but i was curious about whether commission sculpting is legal, for a while i have been thinking about starting some commission work and you have done it many times before so i assumed it was as you dont cast anything, but i read the legal page on there website and it dosnt really mention it so is it legal?

    • It’s a good question, and I honestly don’t know the answer.

      I’ve never heard of anyone doing commission work (painting, converting or sculpting) ever receiving cease and desist communications from GW.

      I think with commission work it’s never really something that involves mass production and as such is not a threat to their business… and really it’s something that helps promote their business. I doubt it’s something GW would want to put an end to.

      One part of the GW Legal page says:

      “Conversions are a major aspect of the hobby, although in intellectual property terms, they also constitute a major infringement. However, we are certainly not about to stop people making cool conversions of our products…”

      I think you can look at commission work as paying for someone’s time and expertise working with miniatures, rather than paying someone to rip-off GW’s IP.

        ok thanks for the answer, i may look into it more a bit later, so am i right in saying each model has to be sculpted, no reason parts that i cast of my own work?

        • Yeah, if you’re sculpting everything yourself then the only issue comes about from use of GW’s trademarks, both in the sculpt (ie: Blood Angel iconography) and using trademarks in the description of the item being sold.

          I can’t give legal advice but I think the ‘big’ issue is the difference between a one offs and mass production.
