Frank Frazetta - Death Dealer official sculpts!

David Sonderquist of Bronze Age Miniatures has finally been able to release pictures and details of his officially licenced range of Death Dealer miniatures. They are available through both David's site and also the Frazetta Art Museum. All pics are borrowed off David's site and remain his copyrite of course. The sculpts are due to be released around the 11th of July this year.

The miniatures are available as a pre-order through David here;

Also soon to be listed in the Pennnsylvania's Frazetta Art Museum here;

Frazetta painted the original artwork in 1973 (I was 11).......

Since 1985 The Death Dealer has been used as a mascot for the III Corps (United states). A wonderful full size statue sits outside their headquarters in Fort Hood, Texas.

Well worth a visit I'd say if you're in the area.

The Death Dealer has spawned many copycat sculpts within the hobby over the years.....those that I know of are below....if you know of any more please get in contact.

Minifigs (Sharadan Lords of Darkness from their Aureolo Rococo Range)

McEwan Miniatures (from their Heros & Wizards range)

Barry Minot (from his Age of the Barbarian range)

Couple of nice examples c/o Joe Videki.

Valiant Enterprises (part of a larger scale 54mm range that included occasional fantasy) 

(this one is still available via their own site or eBay)

.......and a (ahem) slightly risque one, looks to be out of production by Kabuki Models (thanks to Ajsalium of Frothers)

As always, any comments below or email me on

Beautiful sculpts! Looking forward to adding these to the lead pile. :^)

Very interesting. Do you know if the Ral Partha sculpts of the Death Dealer are still produced? Regards, Karl

David Wood said...

Hi Karl, unfortunately they are no longer in production although it may be worth emailing Iron Wind Metals as they'll know what's happening with the old miniature re-release plans and may have more info. The fact they were re-released as the 'Ral Partha Remembered' series gives me some hope!

Herr Zinnling said...

Do both, Iron Wind Metals and Ral Partha Europe sell the old Ral Partha ranges these days?

David Wood said...

I think RP Europe are licenced via Iron Wind.
