Baruk gif

Made a gif so you can see him/her from all all angles ;) (double click to see full image)

As good as it gets

Done finished fineeto.

I really need to work on my patches, the thread's don't look right to me. I have never been shown an effective technique for it so I just roll out a blob and hope it sticks before i mash it up to hard and have to start again.

Maybe in a month or two I'll get around to painting him ^^

Still twilight

Almost done with this guy now. Medallions are on. I noticed that the neck didn't quite look right so i built that up a bit. Added a buckle on one of the belts and baffled myself trying to figure out which side to have the excess belt on.

once these bits are dry I'll add the links to the medallions, thread to the patch and maybe some random stitches. That should be him complete

Dim illumination.

did a lil more to the sacks and added a strap.

Between sunset and dark

added more pouches and started changing the strapped blobby bits. waiting till they set so that i wont distort them when i add the straps. Thinking about adding another rolled blanket some place but haven't decided yet. once I've done these bulky parts I'll get into the little details like the medallions and rivets on the straps

Manhunter Painted

Ok, so i'm no pro but i thought i did ok concidering i havent painted anything in a couple years and i had a very limited pallet (new paints arrived today ^^). Will soonly break out my new paints and give her a touch up ^^

Twilight cont.

glued the tail (forgot to say in my last entry that i bent it into a new shape, but its barly notacable). Pinned and filled out the neck by wrapping it.

Fleshed out the neck put a little texture into it with some creases.

Started adding new pouches and patches.

Rocks, Love all the mini's. Mike has done a great job on them. I thought it would be a nice quick project to create an alternate stance for his baruk ^^. no more need for words, I'll just post the images as i move along ^^.

just a lil explanation. carved off the bottom jaw to sculpt an open mouth. cut down the head and neck to change the angle of the head. Ground down bags, sacks and straps to i could add a little more diversity.

My comp died and i had to install operating system (which i already had ready and waiting) and then was with out all my photo editing software (disc's lost in 3/4 moves in recent years). Anyway, i got GIMP now so all is good ^^

I was pritty chuffed with it hope you like

GS'ed straight over the wire, you can see how close to the surface it is. the tip is fatter than i'd like but i felt it was nessasary so the end didn't wiggle. I'm still yet to sculpt the hair on her head but wanted to see how durable a layer of glue over the sand and grit would make it. Also am seeing if i can create convinceing rock with cork and GS. If it dosent work out its no real loss as there will be a layer of snow.

Proof that i've started painting. Just a bit of baseing and some undercoats on my favorit widowmaker. I need a wider pallet of colours O.o i have two P3 sets and they are all greys, greens and browns >.> what a pain.

Backwards or forwards

Took the "Shafts" off the grenades for the obvious reason that they made them look like giant rubber cocks >.> So now they look like Loony Toons bombs. I'm still working on more realistic bombs (old war bomber types and pipe) which i might still remove these for if they turn out much better.

I ordered this girl last November. NOVEMBER! yes, long story but she finally arrived yesterday. I Sliced her hat right off and I'm giving her a giant ponytail which will hopefully look like its whipping about with her movements.

A picture is worth...

So 10 pictures need no words! right?

Sunday 8 February 2009


Just wanted to prove that I have been sculpting.

As you can see, the Devastator has got the majority of my attention. The grenades still need a lotta lotta work but you get the idea. going to disguise the wires with smoke plooms. it looks aces in my mine. just gotta get it on the figure now.

Like the stump from this angle. from others it looks too thin at the base. I have decided on snow bases and am told that baking soda is the way to go. I'm going to try a few methods on some test bases.

And some boring prep work on some other minis. pins and wiring for some base detailing I'll do later. rocks, stumps, Branch's, trees and skulls etc.
