A very simple sculpt but I'm so proud of it.

Made with gormiti parts, a small barrel and milliput.

yup...very close...but i think it needs some sort of focus on the eyes....no actual pupils but maybe some lens effect? shimmer or something?

So many bits!
Too much ebay!



I love random bits boxes, you don't know what you can find and what you can make, the only problem is too many arms and heads.
With some ingenuity you can make some characters that don't look from GW.

oh....cool headswaps...hmmm.... litardman and dwarf are the only ones i think look too much off... the demonic ones and the fishhead are really nice... but the long necked chaos man looks funny...in a good way! all in all i think the hooded goblin and the (?) fishhead (?) are the best...

Not where I should be

It's funny how the gobbo ones look right, The smaller head with the bulkier body has something right about it. I would agree the lizard man and the dwarf are a bit off, not quite right.

Hmm, I remember these orks with bows and blades. maybe even still have a few of them? I will not be very original here - goblin head look just right on these shoulders. Dwarf may also be an OK choice, but with something like horns on his helmet. The head is right, it is just slightly out of style, IMHO. But maybe even a proper painting would blend it in. Vampire and lizardmen are equally goofy in a good way. They may be in a draw for the third place.

Time for another toy kitbash. Mini gormiti bodies, goblin wolf riders legs and heads from the bit box.
The boggles are small stretchy gremlins. I used them in only one session in 20 years, but we always need evil smurfs in our collections.

I'm also trying to convert the orcs into bugbears, but I cannot sculpt the fur on the head.

I think it's a sort of rule.
If you buy bit boxes you HAVE to find some undead parts.
Fine by me, zombies and skeletons are always useful.
But for some reason it seems the lefts arms are pretty rare.

A quick and dirt paintjob for these guys, good to be table ready.

(I have already posted most of them, but new camera, new pictures )

your observations are true to the point...a bitz box without undead bitz is not complete...and yep... all left arms are rare... and if you want to top it even more...open left hands and other poses...at least thats what i seek and crave!

nice shamblers!

If you play d&d you know this monster. It's a bugbear, a big, hairy goblin. I don't know why they exist. In the end they are orcs. So why don't use orcs?

Orc body, beastmen arms, a modified goblin head and a random shield.

Not a bad result, a middle range between a goblin and an orc.

Another minotaur, a simple Huntik toy with some bits on. I bought it for a Blood Bwl team, but in the end I found him too cartoonish compared to the other players.

Heh. These same ork bodies with bestigor bits made me quite a few bestigorks long, long time ago. Thanks for bringing up these memories... and that minotaur could really use a little bit of better lighting - it is difficult to see details beyond the notion that they are there. Thumbs up (green thumbs!)

A sort of experiment this time. I took an old plastic toy soldier, a native American and various bits, mostly skulls to make this thing.

The result is odd but not bad. Some sort of giant shaman wendingo thing...



I don't know what to use this thing for, but a nice diversion from the usual stuff.

A quick proof of concept.

I have a lot of plastic cups with this interesting texture.



I tried a quick terrain piece with this hut, but you have some more ideas how to use these things?

I'm amazed what you can do wtih PVC plastic, what glue do you use? They never seem to hold well for me.

And the Shawoman looks perfect for the new Chaos game coming out.

i like the small roof for the small hut...also as a tower roof very clever use...
what my first reaction to the structure was is this: a carbon meiler...where you slow burn wood into wooden coal...? that could be really cool and inventive kind of terrain be^^
