Sculptors that have moved away from the fantasy market.................


2 of the industries' most well known sculptors from the early days are Andrew Chernak and Nick Bibby. Andrew Chernak founded Grenadier Models with Ray Rubin back in 1975, having been running a joint giftware company, Canterbury Pewter Ltd, since 1972. His sculpts are numerous and many examples can be found on the Grenadier section of the Lost Minis WIKI. He now sculpts larger scale figurines in bronze. Check out his website; http://www.andrewchernak.com/


Nick Bibby was an early stalwart of the Games Workshop heydays....many of his sculpts, including his excellent dragons, can be seen on the Collecting Citadel Miniatures WIKI. He is now sculpting and casting in bronze...check out his website....the latest 'Indominatable' is a lifesize Grizzly Bear....takes my breath away. The pic below is borrowed from his site....http://nickbibby.com/

What a fascinating post. Andrew Chernak certainly has an impressive military record too. Amazing to see how Nick Bibby's career has changed course...that's one big bear.
