Guess, we need a single thread for all Scibor releases.

Today, 3 shield packs and one shoulder pad pack were released, all resin:

Elven Shields (10 for 7$):

Chaos Shields (6 for 7$):

Spartan Shoulder Pads (8 for 7$):

I will try to add all upcoming Scibor releases to this thread, modifying the title headline accordingly.

I'd love to see some of his bits on actual minis, especially the helms and shoulderpads.

Those elven shields look terrific. Trying to think how'd they look on a high elf army.

I've ordered from Scibor and love the stuff but would also be interested if you carried it state side.

"ok"?!?! Those Spartan shoulderpads are _wonderful_. Along with the Chapterhouse 1K sons stuff, they're the best-detailed pads out there. Really nice composition and really nice execution. Bravo.

But their scale is off for 40k so they look too big on PA models. Terminators are better though.

I am, but just not for anything in particular if it makes sense! Love their work just waiting for something that applies to my particular minis a bit more, but I would buy from them confidently. Same goes for Maxmini, Kromlech and the other Polish sculpt kings lol. I have ordered from a few of the others from time to time btw if it is relavant -

Personally I think Scibor should put out a sculpting DVD or download, he uses a few tricks better than anyone else!

Not to rain on anyones parade, but the majority of Scibors current are for the most part Computer Aided Designs. I'm not putting the bits down or anything, but to call them sculpted would be a mistake.

That's fairly well known, as well as many of the other 'tricks of the trade' that he uses - still, nice stuff and if we can get a US distributor too...?

Add my name to the list of support.

I've ordered directly from Scibor in the past and the only complaint I had was the shipping time. The product is stellar as well as his part of the packing and shipping process ... once it leaves his hands is when my patience is taxed.

So? I never understood why people were hung up on that one. Who freakin' cares. If the models are good, then does it really matter if someone pushed around kneadatite with a tool or pushed electrons with a mouse?

I think he was pointing out that asking Scibor for a sculpting DVD for the the work in this thread would be futile.

I also vote for a US distributor. I don't have any immediate plans for any of their stuff, but they show great promise. And as someone who hates computers with an insane passion, I admire anyone who could get results for a 3D design program.

It's rather significant if someone's asking him to put out a "How to sculpt like Scibor" video. Much of the CAD/CAM software I've used is expensive, finicky or both, which means a tutorial might not be useful to anyone unwilling to invest time and money into learning that specific program.

I wasn't aware of that. TBH, I don't care how they make it as long as the final product looks good, which these do.

Lol I don't care if he has a trained squirrel do it with a toothpick in it's butt, I'm interested in how he achieves his results, computer, squirrel, clayshaper, witchcraft... whatever!

Besides, it wouldn't be futile for me. I professionally use Maya and Mudbox, I recreationally paint and sculpt, any which way, I could keep up.

BTW, unless you've ever tried using a computer to sculpt something, don't bash it, it's not any easier to do than real sculpting lol. There is no 'Space Marinesz' button in Mubdox lol. Open your mind to the tools around you, and evaluate how best to apply them. Don't get pissed if someone finds a new way to achieve something, it's not a CHEAT, it's just new! And usually exceptionally more effective or productive lol.

I'm interested in a US Scibor distributor as well.

Anyways, their shields here look great as does most of their stuff. It's an interesting choice though as there are so many places to buy shields from. I always thought their whole models where what stood out.

Well, we obviously know that he only uses CAD for the armour plates and shields.

The controversy surrounding Scibor is that he was mass producing CAD armour and stuff, slinging them onto terminator plastics and selling the resulting models for almost a hundred quid a piece, even though the price of the materials and effort involved would not even price the models at half the asking cost. People that are ignorant to how CAD works/how the plates were really made still pay up, with Scibor walking away having made gargantuan profits.

Because of this, a lot of people are very paranoid about him ripping them off. And to be honest, I don't blame them. It would be like GW adding a fancy armour sprue to the Space Marine Tactical set, and then quadrupling the price.

Do we? Why then are the skulls of the Chaos shields all slightly different? Must be difficult to program each shield to look handcrafted
Scibor uses the greenstuff mould technique on several sculpts, but where does that "obvious" proof about him using CAD come from, when evidence points the other way?
