Gary Hunt Miniatures Teams up With ZombieSmith
ZombieSmith and Gary Hunt Miniatures are joining forces to bring you some new miniatures. Well, they’re new versions of some older miniatures, that is, at least to start with. They’ll be bringing back the Fantasy Warr range to begin with. Then, later on, they’ll be coming out with the 21st Century Amazons pulp range of figures. Gary Hunt Miniatures will also be available soon in the ZombieSmith webshop, starting with the Fire Drake. Previews of new products will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.
From the announcement:
Gary Hunt Miniatures is excited to announce a new partnership with Zombiesmith, the U.S. based producer and distributor of war-gaming miniatures. The scene is set for a re-release of the ‘Fantasy Warr’ range, followed soon after by the pulp sci-fi “21st Century Amazons” collection. GH mini’s will be available from Zombiesmith this April, starting with the Fire Drake. In addition, Gary has many new and soon to be revealed designs in the works. Look out for Zbrush digital renders, workbench photos and more in the coming months.
“I’m really thrilled to be working alongside Zombiesmith,” said Gary Hunt, founder of GHM. “The partnership will allow me to focus fully upon producing new content for gamers and collectors. New miniature lines will join a whole host of future creations including, terrain, vehicles and rules sets.”
New Zealand based Gary has been producing war-gaming miniatures since 1995. His first job was with Grenadier U.K. He has subsequently collaborated with Anton Ducrot (Sculptor and founder of Flytrap factory – recently partnered with Zombiesmith) on numerous projects. They stay in regular contact and can often be found sharing thoughts and ideas regarding both the miniatures world and the film industry of which they are both part. Gary has worked for Weta Workshop as a Sculptor/Designer for 15 years now and has been part of numerous films such as Lord of the Rings, Avatar, King Kong and the Hobbit. He has also sculpted many of the Weta collectibles range.
U.S. based Josh Qualtieri of Zombiesmith has been releasing cool and quirky miniatures for almost 15 years, providing fun figures and energised rule sets. Joshua spent 17 years in Feature Film Animation working on such films as Wall-e, Brave and Ratatoille before deciding to make games full time. ZS teamed up seamlessly with Flytrap Factory last year and is excited about this new pairing.
Zombiesmith will take over production and fulfillment of Gary Hunt Miniatures within North America and Europe (customers within Australasia will receive orders direct from Gary Hunt Miniatures, New Zealand.)
