So, after a failed attempt to go away on holiday, the Summer is now truly upon us. Fortunately I’ve been able to get some more work done on the sculpting side of things and even got around to gluing my pikemen onto stands (no pictures until their bases are all nicely painted and flocked though!).
The sculpting continues apace and I’m starting to get my head around the idea of doing more than one thing at a time, here are a couple of shots of the slow but steady progress:
It’s actually turning out to be quite a bit of fun sculpting these, after my initial sense of dread and of being in a bit over my head I’m getting comfortable with making mistakes and doing my best to learn from them.
I’m also getting daring……. I’ve got an idea for some allies/nominal subjects for my Arabians. From the ever shifting dunes the great wandering tribes of the desert Trolls emerge to fight for the great Merchant Princes of the Arabian city states, lured by the generous and pay and more likely the more than generous post battle feasing! Here’s a sneak peek for scale:
Yep, I know, not much to go on….. but the idea is in my head and taking shape!
Also converting some 6mm scale tanks to start an Epic Nurgle army…. without using any army lists and using whatever stuff I’ve been hoarding whenever I get tempted to buy 6mm sci-fi stuff. Confession time, I bought a couple of packs of Onslaught Miniatures Hellborn Cultists which are lovely – if a bit pricey, also 6mm really isn’t great for detail so I can’t help but think some of the 3D CAD image printing is a bit less razzle-dazzle than one would hope. Still, nice to get more models!
Thanks for looking.
