Thunderbolt Mountain closing in December......

Seems to be too much effort compared to sales versus the real world of sculpting for the big toy companies etc. Closing down December 25th.

Excellent article here :D

I wonder if Tom is still active on Frothers to give a viewpoint? Quite a few pieces I'd missed when going through the catalogue including some exquisite Byzantine spearmen.

Hmm, his comments about pay levels actually having halved since he began (corrected for inflation) are a bit depressing. Too many people pushing putty around?
