Update: Ninja Turtles Sculpts done!

Just a quick update: finally finished sculpting the little turtles. 

Took me awhile to finish sculpting the weapons; for some reason, sculpting weapons takes me the longest time for me.

Now it's onto mold making and casting.

My last attempt at mold making/casting didn't fare too well but I did a bit more research, so hopefully things will go better this time around. Wish me luck!

Back to sculpting - practicing with Ninja Turtles for Frostgrave?!

Back to sculpting - practicing with Ninja Turtles for Frostgrave?!

So the bad news for me is that I got laid off a few months ago; the good news is that I now have time to sculpt again :)

Anyways, I caught the Frostgrave bug that's been going around lately.

Frostgrave is a skirmish game released by Osprey Games with warbands led by their Wizards exploring a frozen ruins of an ancient city of eldritch wiizardry.

Sort of like Mordheim with lots of snow and less Chaos and grim-dark (and without the usual exclusive GW models only restriction).

So for my Frostband warband, I was planning on using the Skaven models I had gathered for Mordheim back in the days but never got around to using.
Having just watched the latest Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, I couldn't stop thinking about Splinter while looking at the Skaven mage model by Marauder Miniatures.

That got me on a strange track of thought that made me decide that I must have Ninja Were-Turtles led by a Were-Rat Wizard!

I'm going to sculpt the movie/cartoon/comic version of the Mutant Ninja Turtles first  for fun and as practice to get back into sculpting again. I plan on doing my own Were-Turtle design for my actual Frostgrave warband once I'm done with these.

Currently sculpting weapons for these guys.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day! I hope all you dads got to spend some quality time with your kids and maybe even some precious 'me' time to enjoy your hobbies.

As for me, I got me a couple Land Raiders as a Father's Day gift for myself :)

 I managed to pick up a Land Raider Terminus and a Land Raider Crusader/Redeemer kits at a 2 for 1 price on eBay!

I plan on building the Terminus as a regular Land raider and just using the Terminus parts as bits.

Now I finally have a use for my Exorcists chapter markings!

New Project: My Little War Pony!

I asked my caster Jacqualine if she had any fun suggestions for a new project to get me back in to sculpting again. Her wife had this idea of starting a Guard army made up of magical little ponies and calling them "War-Pwnies"  :)

Being a fan of Lauren Faust's work (Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Powerpuff Girls), working on a My Little Pony sculpting project sounded like a great idea to me.

The figure is sized to fit on a standard 25mm base (the cork she's standing on is 25mm in diameter).

She doesn't look much like a pony without her mane and tails. I still need to work on those as well as her unicorn horn. Surprisingly, I'm rather enjoying working on this fun, wacky little project.

New project: Female Space Elf heads

Some progress on a set of female space elf heads.

W.I.P. Female Marine Biker Legs

I got a reminder that I haven't sculpted bike riding legs for the female space marines yet.

A bike riding band of powered armored Valkyries does have a definate appeal to it :)

So here's the start to what's probably going to be the last bits I do for these female marines.

I still need to work on sculpting her arms. Might just go ahead and sculpt more feminine scaled arm and hands for them as well to match the new smaller shoulder pads.
