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.

W.I.P. Arms for Female Infantry Troopers

Still working on sculpting the arm variations for the female soldiers:

It's kind of a pain getting their arms in the correct position to be able to hold a rifle. Sculpting those tiny little hands isn't easy either; it's almost as hard as sculpting faces and far more tedious. But it's slowly getting there.

Happy Lunar New Year!!

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Happy Lunar New Year!!

Wishing you good fortune in The Year of the Snake.

2013 Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!


Wishing us all a wonderful year full of joy, prosperity and a very productive year for our hobbies in 2013 :)

I started a new job last year and been having way too much fun at work to find enough time to make  enough progress with my sculpting  to be worth posting.

Sorry about that :(

I'm working on finding a better balance between my professional and family obligations with personal time for myself as a hobbyist. Wish me luck!

Currently I'm working on finishing up the female grunts. Taking in your suggestions for more appropriately scaled arms, I've decided to sculpt posed arms for them myself.

Unfortunately sculpting tiny little hands has been a thorn in my side for the past few months. In my opinion, sculpting hands is even more difficult than faces at this scale. It's especially tedious having to sculpt multiple hands for each variant arm pose; might be time to seriously consider digital sculpting to reduce the redundant work of replicating hands.

Anyways, wish me luck and keep an eye out for updates on my projects.
