Broom Riders
















The question is do I cast them up or just paint them for myself?

Now added, girls!

If they are yous cast them, I would buy a set.

Soapy said...

Just a set of minis I've been messing about with on and off for the last year or so. Finally finished them. Can't think what inspired me to get them done...

Soaps.

Mike said...

well you could cast them up and sell them as a bloodbowl team

then you could sued by 2 big companies instead of just one

Mike said...

that second sentence should read could get sued...

Nah...
Could sue 2 big companies sounds better.

Tom said...

Pretty Good. I'm not much of a Harry Potter fan, but still.

Design a set of tabletop Quidditch rules and sell them with these guys... :o)

Warpspawn said...

These are great if i where you i would look into selling then i dont see why you would get sued it not as if JK came up with the idaer of riding a broom all by herself, theres got to be lot of use for these guy, and it not your falut if pepol do use then for quidich or bloodbowl

WABit said...

Cast them on a master, send them to me and I'll paint them up :0).

So strange that it has to be done.....

Cheers,

Darrell.

joda said...

Rob_Jedi said...

You'd be begging to get "cease and desist"ed but damn they would sell well. There's definitely a mini sports game waiting to happen.

Oh please. Cast now!!!

Are they in 28mm????? Please say yes...

I would certainly buy a set - but can't we have some obviously female players too? Most of at least one team were girls.

Rabidchild said...

Cast them up, nobody owns the rights to witches and wizards on broomsticks, or even to young wizards with round glasses. I'll take 1 set please. :)

Artmaster Painter Toby said...

I think you should casy them! You could make a great game out of these!

Tom C said...

You better cast them up or you will be sorry. :) Those are outstanding. They would be perfect for some type of convention game.

Lee said...

Yes would have a set but hope you dont get sued?

Very nice. I am working on a set of rules to go with these.

myincubliss said...

Still want these... :(

Neverith said...

Hey, I love the work that you've done on these. They are exactly what I am looking for to use in a mini game for an RP I've designed. Is there any news on purchasing at all?

Please could you put up something about how to purchase them or even how to make our own just anything!!!

myincubliss said...

I've been trying for a while: http://deadleadproject.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/my-ongoing-quest.html?m=1

Which reminds me, it's been a while since I emailed Gripping Beast about it (mostly because when I asked in person at Salute they just said 'get lost Olly' which was an odd combination of flattering knowing who I am and rude customer service :p

Then again, the FWA album I spent two years bugging the band for a release date for turned up last week, so who knows, maybe it's the year of getting long-awaited stuff!

I was looking to make up my own Quidditch rules and was about to sit down and try out sculpting for the first time when I ran into this! Get an online store started on these. I'd definitely buy these up!

Anonymous said...

Were these ever made?

Soapy said...

Sadly not. Don't actually know where the sculpts even are anymore. Lost into history.

myincubliss said...

Sad times - after something like 7 years of asking at Salute I finally got a 'probably not ever' this year after last year's 'you'll get an email when it happens' 😭
