    Thanks for posting these. I have been a big Rackham fan for a long time, and I have never seen that Samurai Troll.

    Hi Moradin :)

    Funny to see these pics after all those years ...
    As a former Rackham sculptor, I can help you identify the staff here :
    Top foreground is the hideously skilled spanish sculptor Juan Navarro Perez, who litteraly became Mr Anima Tactics since then.
    Top Background is the very talented (and eccentric) painter Guillaume Hemery.
    Bottom, holding the Tarraskus, was Sean Green, who did several big size projects for the studio.

    Don't be too sad about the Troll Samurai ... if I remember correctly, this was a (heavy) conversion by Benoit Cosse, with limbs belonging to several different troll references ... I don't think Rackham ever had plans to release this one.

    Thank you S.!

    I had talked a few minutes with Sean Green back then (he seemed a bit lost in a sea of french-language), a really nice guy! He gave me some tricks on how to achieve a smooth armor like he did for the Tarasque. It was my first minis convention and there was a lot of people, had a hard time to get a space in front the displays to take photos!
    Fo the samurai troll, it was nice to see and was well done, the pose was familiar (the black troll), but it was so cool to see! Too bad it was not considered to be a release.

    Thanks Atacam, I had these pictures on my hard drive for a long time, I posted this as a remembrance of when Rackham was in full steam ahead mode!

    Thanks for the pics, great nostalgia time :_)
    The Daikenee archer (second pic) was one of my favorite Rackham sculpt ever but, if I'm not wrong, has never been released... really hope for a recast by CMON!

    @itsrainingfrogs:
    hopefully, you're wrong. I have two of them. It was released as a mail order mini. ;-)

    @dieusurterre:
    I think he's right, I remember the mail order one, armour and bow can be similar, but it was more still in the pose: http://underthemountainblog.com/wp-c...e-davc0101.jpg

    Oh my! It is wow! This conversion is really good, you can feel it running to rend and tear its enemies! Super nice!

    It's really great to see Rackham when it was in it's prime. I sadly was unaware of it at this time so seeing these pictures is really amazing.

    Someone with much more skills than me should re-sculpt that samurai troll. He looks to be mostly the black troll with lots of samurai bits.

    Hopefully with new release they can get back to a place where they have a convention of their own. It would give me a great reason to go to France.
