"We are new to the upgrade scene. We're currently building various partwork builds, Ecto-1, Terminator, Mig29... and we've also built the Rossi 1/4 bike. However, we're sure like many, there are some frustrations as attention to detail by the large partwork companies occasionally slips, leaving you a little disappointed and looking for solutions. Our aim is to produce upgrades, such as the Ecto-1 stow gun (and more), where we've found the standard builds in need of that little bit extra. We're also venturing a little into movie props, as you'll see when you visit the shop. We of course couldn't do this without Ryan (possible future son-in-law), who is a dedicated Warhammer artist!", PartworkUpgrades.
Who are we?
Most of you will know me from World of Wayne as a site moderator.
I'm a software consultant by day, married with grown-up kids and recently a grandad.
I love being involved in builds and designing\printing solutions.
Ryan James Fitzpatrick
I've been a Warhammer artist for over 10 years and love to produce fine detail figurines.
During the day, I work as a Health and Safety officer.
I've recently became a dad... hence why Ian is a grandad.
Julie & Faye Campbell
We are a small family business and I do have to mention our "packers".
The wife Julie and my daughter, Faye, both do an awesome job in the
administration of invoices\printing\packing etc.
What material do we use?
All 3D printed upgrades\fixes\mods are custom designed and printed in-house.
All printed using PLA plastic or polylactic acid is a vegetable-based plastic material, which commonly uses
cornstarch as a raw material.
This material is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester and it is the primary natural raw material used in 3D printing.
All are tested on the actual builds to ensure quality and they are fit for purpose.
Our upgrades\props are sold either in their raw material form, or hand painted, by our Warhammer graphics artist, who has over 10 years experience of finest detail painting.
In fact, the texture from the 3D printing does actually compliment the parts in many ways, such as the T-800 Neural.Net Processor, it gives it depth\texture... and uniqueness.
