Jewel of Dakkidia

I am pleased to announce a new release to our Nene Thomas line, The Jewel of Dakkidia. She is a 1/10th scale bust sculpted by Kevin Contos and is cast in translucent resin.


Translucent resin gives you the option of a variety of special effects when painting, including translucent glowing skin, more realistic lace for the collar and more options should you choose to paint the mask as filigree, etc.  This resin is also special in that it can be painted without the need for priming.

She can be found here:

We are sponsoring a “Best Miniature” award for WonderFest’s Amazing Modeling Contest. This will consist of a beautiful trophy as well as $150.00 in kit awesomeness. If you are attending, bring those miniatures and place them in the contest!


I will also being doing a demo/lecture on the basics of miniature painting. WonderFest features excellent projection screens and video, so everyone will be able to get a good view of the demoing without having to get out of their chairs! This is tentatively scheduled for 3-4pm on Saturday, the final confirmed time will be in the shows pocket guide.

Hope to see you there!


October Sale & Free Figure

   This October marks our sixth anniversary! This year we are going to try our anniversary release a little differently because of the health reasons. As I am unable to do a full proper release, I will include a free Halloween Ghost Trick-or-Treater in every order that is over $100.00 as of right now, while the supplies I have on hand last. This figure will not be released, or available outside of conventions until next year. This very cute figure was sculpted for us by Sandra Garrity and is cast in metal. We will also be running our anniversary sale until November 1st on select lines.  


No Shipping And Shipping Delay Dates.

Due to unavoidable surgery there will be no shipping from Monday September 19th through September 26th.   We will be shipping after September 26th, but please bear with us as shipping might be delayed by an extra day or two beyond normal.

We are back from JerseyFest!  As always, this was a fantastic convention and loads of fun.   We also took a ton of pictures, so there are pictures of our booth, our miniature painting class, the other Friday classes, some of the demos, parties and the modeling contest.  Enjoy!

Off to JerseyFest!

We are headed to JerseyFest!  The miniature painting class is sold out, the stock is packed up and all that is left is to hit the road.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Caterpillar 4th 2016 2

I hope all our US friends had a wonderful 4th of July. Now that the fourth is past, Caterpillar must retire his hat for another year. He knows some of his special hats go up and as you can tell from the picture, he’s sad to see them go up. Thankfully his disappointment is short lived as I distract him by giving him his favorite hat until he wants to wear a different one.


Since we didn’t run a 4th sale this year, we are running a short sale from now until July 10th. So until Sunday, July 10th you can get 15% off 32mm, 54mm and busts in the Morland Studios line, the Order of the Stick line, the Nene Thomas line and the Howard David Johnson line.



Happy 4th of July from Morland Studios
