Warlord Games – Behind the scenes 2013

Within the Warlord Games Day, that was not used just for gaming, but although an open-door day, was a good chance to see what is going on behind the scenes.

And for all of those, who weren't there and didn't win one of the golden tickets, a couple of pictures.

Warlord Games showed a few casting molds, to show how miniatures were sculpted and casted. Beside 3-Ups (they are called like this because they are 3 times the size of the final product), that are used to produce plastic miniatures, you could see some greens and greys. That is the name of the miniatures, sculpted in green or grey modelling clay, that are later on casted in pewter or resin.

The showcases covered some upcoming models, some of them still work in progress and others already painted. Among them the recently acquired Judge Dredd license, a couple of Bolt Action vehicles and the upcoming US Marines.

Every couple of hours there were lead tours through the production facilities for resin and lead, accompanied and hosted by Lilly (of course in Uniform) and Doug (Warlord Games warehouse manager).

So you could see the lead casters do their job, and gather some informations about the casting and manufacturing process. And they opened up their resin shop, that was just moved next to the other offices.

The casted miniatures are sorted into sorting boxes and later on into blisters and boxes. From there they make their way to the warehouse and are later shipped to traders, stores and customers.

But you could not only follow the process of the miniature until it is ready, but the later paintjob was shown as well. They even showed some tutorials on how to paint faces on recast of 3-up heads.

Combined with an open workshop, that covered converting and improving vehicles.
