Once upon a time ... there lived a Halfling named Thom A Sanders. Thom loved two things more than anything in the world.. like all Halflings he loved food
– eating, cooking, experimenting, you name it, he loved it. He also had a love of a strange and violent sport called Fantasy Football. Thom was never
brave enough to play the game it must be said, but so passionate was he about the sport than he joined the Iron Chefs team as head chef, and later as the
head coach, and he led them in many successful, and a few unsuccessful campaigns.
All this time, the fame of Thom grew. Whether it was his aggressive play-calling or his mouth-watering recipes it did not seem to matter. Thom always gave
everything his full effort and the resulting fame was well deserved. The expertise of Thom was soon sought out by a spiteful, nasty old lady who surrounded
herself with lickspittle lawyers and shallow sycophants. Her real name was unknown, though she was often called the Greedy Witch by those lucky enough to
have mercifully escaped her clutches!
The Greedy Witch asked Thom to give her all his recipes for something which would be called the Lil Recipe Book, or LRB. Thom so loved to cook and so
wanted to share his knowledge that he gladly, and some might say naively, accepted. He enthusiastically set to work on the book for the Greedy Witch.
He worked for her for hours, days, weeks, months and eventually even years! The Greedy Witch never said thank you, or well done, she just kept publishing
the hard work of Thom and claiming all the credit for herself, even though she did not really care at all about what was in there, as long as people kept
Thom had finally completed the sixth compilation of his best recipes when the Greedy Witch threw Thom out of her castle and refused to ever speak to him
again. She published the book without many of best recipes of Thom, and did not even so much as give him a mention in the text!
Thom refused to cower as so many others had done though. Despite being just a lowly Halfling he vowed revenge on the old crone. She sent her despicable
lawyers, Ceez and D. Cyst, to threaten him, but he chased them off with little more than his steely gaze. Thom modified his recipes to have even
more flavour and be able to be made in half the time and published them under his own name thereafter, and while these new recipes are not as famous now
as the ones Thom still speaks fondly of that are found in the LRB6, they were much, much better!
On the left we see our cheerful head chef standing proudly with his beloved LRB6 beneath his feet, and on the right we see our hero as he triumphantly
knocks the Greedy Witch, and her filthy litigation, to the ground.
NOTE 1: If you do not live in the United Kingdom, it is very important that you login to the website before adding product to your shopping cart in order to get the correct prices and shipping.
NOTE 2: All figures are cast in lead free White Metal or Trollforged resin and due to their size and often sharp points and small pieces should be kept away from children under 14.
NOTE 3: Many figures require light assembly in order to create a dynamic pose that is impossible to cast as a single piece. We do our best to list this on the figure description but we might miss it here or there and so please be aware that some figures need a bit of super glue to put them together.
NOTE 4: Any figure with a star (*) after the sculptor's name was submitted to Impact! using our Targeted Impact agreement. This means the sculptor received no up front money for the figure and is only paid commissions of the sales of the figure.
NOTE 5: PAINTING TROLLCAST resin
(method to work every time):
1. Wash the figures with any liquid soap with a degreaser agent. Dawn dish soap and Dasty both work great for this.
2. After the figures dry you should prime them with a spray primer with a self-etching agent. So far we have not found any brush on primers that are self-etching. The following primers all have self-etching agents and work great: Tamiya Fine Surface Primer, Rust-oleum Self Etching Primer, Dupli-Color Plastic Primer, Duplicolor Sandable Primer, and Krylon Primer for metal and plastic.
NOTE 6: PRODUCT SAFTEY DISCLAIMER for TROLLCAST resin:
Specs: Trollcast is a hard (75D) heat resistant plastic resin. It is much harder, and tougher, than normal resin. Trollcast can withstand 320F, and can handle prolonged exposure at 150F with ease (so our Australian friends should not have any problems during the summer). It can be super-glued together, and takes standard miniature paints easily (we recommend you wash the figures first with warm water, soap and a toothbrush to remove any mold release agent that might still be on the miniature.)
Safety: Trollcast should never be exposed to direct flame. Other than this , Trollcast has no special safety precautions, the dust in non- carcinogenic. However: all material dusts will irritate the lining of the lungs, and make existing conditions worse, so we recommend wearing a dust mask. Better safe than sorry!
Trollcast is safe to expose to INDIRECT heat. Unlike many plastics (PVC etc.) it does not give off toxic vapours. Heating Trollcast to 320F from indirect heat is safe, and a good way to soften the material in order to reposition parts (then plunge into cold water to set). AGAIN DO NOT EXPOSE TROLLCAST TO AN OPEN FLAME. Heck .. do not expose any resin or plastic toy from any company to direct flame. It is just a REALLY bad idea okay.
