Name Justin 'Justice' Hackett (I think the middle name solidifies my geek status) Position [Indie] Creativity Sculpting, Digital Sculpting/3D design, Graphic Design, Illustration Interests Toy soldiers Beer, women, video games and rock and roll!
I registered on here a while ago after talking about casting with Ed. I've got a few mini's in production with Heresy and one with Darkson, but sadly of late I've become the world's laziest sculptor! So I'm redoubling my efforts and using as many forums as possible to motivate me! I seem to struggle most on the concept side of things so I may steal your ideas...
In hind sight this feels a bit like one of those things you do on a dating site... Chubby, Ginger, Beard, GOSH... ;D
Name: Trat. I have a real name, but prefer not to share it at this time. Position: [Neophyte] - New sculptor or painter looking to improve. Though I have been painting for over 15 years now. Wow its been that long. nonetheless I am always looking to improve. ;D Creativity: Ummmm, I usually draw in pencil, digitally on my computer, painting my Warmachine and Hordes armies as well as converting my models. Which is what pointed me in the direction of sculpting Interests: History, art, chemistry, physics..... I could go on and on and on and on. I am however an avid gamer and am in the process of developing two games, when I'm not working that is. I happen to have experience in the world of business, where upon I earned the title [Man of many hats], and have also been a revenant caster, actually just a caster for Privateer Press. I hope that I may be of some assistance to you all.

Name: flashheart Position: [Neophyte][Sculptor] Creativity: I started with 40k but have moved to new games and miniature lines. I spent several collecting and painting Hasslefree Grymn and Pig Iron rebels and ferals then began converting and now work on my own sculpts. At the moment, I'm in process with a few 23mm shorties I call Gnobblings wearing WWI style Inverness capes. They're a simple and quick project I'm doing to hone my vision and skill. If they are well-received, I'll look into offering them here.

Name: Lukas, I am 19 years old. I live in Austria, near Salzburg. Position: [Sculptor] Creativity: Besides sculpting I also enjoy to paint and work in other creative areas. Blog thread:Garnus Modellierthread Interests: I found out about trollforged because Ed is a member of a German sculpting forum called "Drueckepeter", of which I am a member too.
Since he stated that he liked some of my miniatures I asked him, if he was interested in casting some of my Greens (Greys) and he agreed.
Regards from Austria

Name: Khavor / Greg Position: [[url=[TFM Artisan]]TFM Artisan[/url]] [Neophyte] - painter Creativity: Have been painting and converting minis for years. Started w. D&D and Ral Partha, moved to GW and attended my first Games Day in the late 90's. Picked up Warmachine last year as well. I've gradually done more and more elaborate conversions until I decided I'd like to try my hand at sculpting my own. Interests: Painting, Wargaming, Hiking, Home Improvement (I'm an electrician for my day job).
I heard about Troll Forged from a friend, who I believe had heard about you guys on The Warhammer Forum. Sounds like a great way to get started sculpting and get some good feedback.

Name: David Snodgrass (but everyone calls me Snoddie) Position: [Neophyte] - sculptor, I'm writing a game. Creativity: Artist, games designer, page layout, and editing. Interests: Well where do I start? I love table top games and building models. I also enjoy Science fiction, playing with my dog, reading, and being outside. I joined Troll Forge because it seem like a pretty cool community and I am currently working on making my own game and universe and hoping to get some feed back. I also am experienced with creating web, page layout, and packaging strategic plans and design. So if any of those skills will help I hope I can contribute. I've also just started sculpting, really wouldn't call myself a sculptor yet though.

Name: Todd Williams, aka D'dot, the Todd Position: [Neophyte] literally just got here Creativity: Anything miniature-gaming related. Have done some conversion work with mixed results. Retired guitar player/ songwriter (progressive metal), also a background in drawing (various styles). Interests: Wargaming, martial arts (especially anything sword-styling), futbol (watching and playing), plus too much other stuff to list.
Name: Robby Crawforth (bodiscool) Position: [TFM Artisan] Sculptor Creativity: Sculpting and painting Interests: Mostly sculpting and painting. Other free time is spent working out, drinking, and getting ready for the birth of my baby (incoming 31st Oct approx!!)
Bio: My first love with this hobby was painting and converting. 6 weeks after I first started painting I was given a job at Games Workshop as a 'Eavy Metal painter. This is pretty fast which I'm sure will annoy some people (it did my friends, lol). It didn't last long as I didn't find it enjoyable, and quickly moved back home. I concentrated on painting and converting at that point; trying to improve my paintwork and see how far I could push myself.
In '97 I entered my first golden demon and came home with 2 awards. 1 silver in '40k single' and 1 gold in 'Warhammer monster'. I didn't have green stuff for sculpting at that point so I used Das (air hardening clay). It was very hard to use and took a lot of practice. I entered Games Day again in 2000, and 2001, both times lucky enough to bag a few statues.
I then had a 7 year break from the hobby. When I returned I found the website 'Cool mini or not'. I posted many pictures of my old work on it, including a few old sculpts I'd done. Soon after I was asked to do some commission work for differing people (mostly collectors).
Just recently I've found my sculpting has improved alot after I switched from just using green stuff to using green stuff and magic sculpt as a combo. Much nicer to work with, and has the bonus of being sandedable for smoother and sharper edges. I find it takes of some pressure of getting it right first time. Well it works for me, and I'd highly recommend trying it.
