2094 War Buffalope and Riders (a later version was more of an armadillo and then later the riders were changed to lizard like figures)
I moderate the Yahoo Group for Archive Miniatures here of which Nevile Stocken is a member. He answered a query about this line as below;
But do I regret making them? Never! Sculpting them was one of my greatest joys, and they were some of my best work. Indeed, watching multitudes of people spontaneously and almost compulsively break out in whistling and humming the cantina music as soon as they laid eyes on the painted examples of the Cantina Band displayed on the table made the grief I subsequently endured almost worthwhile. If I had to do it all over again, I would have made them again in a heartbeat, but I would have handled their presentation to the world in a much wiser fashion than I did.
So cuff me and stuff me, I am guilty. But I will go to my grave remembering with relish every stroke of the sculpting knives I made upon the clay in their making.
For the record.
Most of these unofficial minis were themselves pirated over the years...I have picked up a few and keep looking for the rest. Low quality 'drop cast' figures but they are part of the history I seek to archive. Every pun intended.
Not 100% sure on this being an archive recast.....
