    I love the model and plan to purchase one, but why the 3 dollar price increase? His figs where never this expensive.

    Hmmm, does seem a little expensive, but when I think about it, reaper are a similar price here and GW are more expensive and its a REALLY nice mini.

    I\'ll be getting a couple (already have an idea for a conversion...)

    I don\'t consider this expensive!
    In comparison to the prices of GW you\'re getting a better quality sculpting and supporting a CMON member.

    Oh And my hat\'\'s in the ring for this one. :D

    Well, my figures had always been smaller (this one is a good deal chunkier and taller than most of the Spyglass pieces) and in one piece. Production costs are higher now and Coolmini have their cut of the cash. Plus I spent a lot longer sculpting this piece than most of my previous Spyglass work.

    Shouldn\'t that be 5/31/06 and 6/30/06

    Unfortunately I probably won\'t have time to paint her before that date. :( Well well.

    Discount rate $8.99 United States Dollars (USD) = £5.12370 United Kingdom Pounds (GBP)
    Standard rate $9.99 (USD) = £5.69301 (GBP).

    Bleeding steal at either of those prices! :D

    Default very cool mini!

    A bargain if you ask me!

    Very nice miniature indeed!

    I\'d buy one but I don\'t have a credit card. Girlfriend wisely won\'t let me get one.

    I\'ll be keen to see the comp entries.

    Ok, my order is in!
    I want to see more and more miniatures sculpted by Steve in future I have supported his creations in the past because I like his works (and because I consider him a friend) ;)

    While I think it\'s expensive (but then I hate paying more than $1 for a mini) I will still buy one because it\'s such a darn good mini and I have a great plowshares vision for her.
    Though I don\'t know if I will have time to paint her for the contest - not that it matters as I haven\'t a snowball\'s chance in hell of winning.

    Ordered one, will be participating...
    It\'s my first CMON competition, so it\'s interesting and surely challenging too. I can\'t wait to get to painting this thing. :)

    Always the optimist, I\'ve ordered 2 :D

    Odds on me getting either of them painted in time for the contest: <50%

    :rolleyes:

    Kinda $$$... but I\'ll probably get one. I am kind of stalled right now bc everything I am painting is not very appealing. I need a boost

    Granted I was the first to gripe about the price, but I did order one. I am a hige fan of his work, specily his 54mm =][= to bad GW killed and raped that game.

    I to have no chance of winning, but I will compete.

    Well, I ordered mine.
    $25 for 3 minis.
    That\'s almost as much as I spent on my 3000+ High Elf army.

    Geez guys no wonder he independants find it hard to make a living doing this stuff. You seem to think doing everything yourself and not mass producing should decrease the price???

    Whereas the reality is that it just increases the profit margin per figure (and it does). That may seem to mean that we can make the figs cheaper but the bottom line is how many you sell. If a figure doesn\'t make you enough money to make it worthwhile sculpting it in the first place, then that\'s the reason not to bother. There\'s an assumption that us independants rake in the cash by selling thousands of these things. It\'s a rare mini that sells in those kinds of numbers. And it\'s pretty rare to even come close...

    And I must say that the post office really had their finger out. I only posted the figures last wednesday. Given that there\'s a four day holiday in there I\'m well impressed :)

    Now go buy figures and I\'ll make more. :D
