Thanks guys! Yes, 2014 is looking pretty good so far.

I have been working on getting molds made and re-done.

I'm making a new mold for my bottles. I tried to make some more bottles for a couple of people with the old mold, and only 2 bottles came out. Yuck. Anyway, after getting the cobwebs off of my mold making skills, I'll work on molding up the Pony.

I also bought some new resin. Hopefully it will set correctly.

I hope the rest of you are having a great 2014 so far too!

Thanks EB for blowing the dust off of the thread!

I'm looking forward to that LDD!

I have lost the original files for the shotguns I did. I was going to make the rest of the special weapons based on the shotgun frame, but now I have to start from scratch.

Oh well, such is life.

Hi everyone!

It's been about....I can't remember how long since I had an actual Picture update...I could look back, but...whatever.

I hope you all had a great time away, I have been busy, more busy than I could have imagined a year ago.

I finally got the My Little Commissar in a mold box! I know right? I used Lexan this time. There did not appear to be any bowing of the sides, so hopefully, the cast won't be warped.





I poured the mold the night before I left for Alaska, so I can't cut her our until I get back in 2 weeks. I hope it will be alright, I have never left a mold set that long before...Well nothing to do about it right now.

I am not officially accepting any more commissions, but I am going to do some "alternate" stuff for Emperor Bacon since the accessories (apart from the pony) he wanted me to do origially kind of went sideways on me.

I still may try to re-cast the gatling gun, but that's for a different time.

He is looking for some Dwarf parts, and that is exciting in itself. Love the Dwarves! I REALLY want to make a 40k Dwarf Army (Counts as Space Marines!), but not in the forseable future.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I was alive and kicking (speaking of which, I got the all clear after my CT Scan in April! No more Cancer!), and still sculpting.

I have done some odd bits here and there on my chaos marines, but I don't have pictures with me.

Thanks for stopping by,

RSJake

Oh, and LDD, I am going to be working on a Rifle for Emperor Bacon, so when I get Blender up and running to make a 3D model, I'll work on the Steampunk Special Weapons too!

P.S. I will need some more of the SteamPunk rifles if thats still cool, when you have the time of course

Thanks! I think EB has WHFB Dwarves, but ever since I saw the GW 2ED Squats, I wanted them. Now I want to make some that actually look cool.

Yeah, There a lot of SciFi dwarves out there, but they would look good as IG, but I want the armored kind. But this is mostly just WANT, not "gonna do".

We watched a MLP film with my son the other day, and my wife could not believe that any grown men would be into it. So i pointed her towards Dakka

Glad you have the all clear mate Well done for Drop kicking nurgle out of there.

Ha ha ha ha! Yes, there is a vibrant community of MLP enthusiasts here!

My daughter loves the show, as a result, it is on quite a lot, and it is really hard to read a book while it is on, so, I have watched quite a few of the episodes myself.

As far as modern cartoons go, there are certainly worse ones.

And thanks mate. now if I could just get my butt in gear and lose some weight too, I'd be set!

And xxweapon primexx, I will keep that in mind!

Hi again!

OK, I am super excited! As you may recall, I had just poured the mold for the Pony the night before I left for 2 weeks. Well, I cut the pony out when I got home last Friday. The mold looked pretty good.

For those of you who do molds and casts, have you ever made a mold of a horse? Or something with more than 2 legs? Not easy, and not really fun.

So I poured the first resin cast this morning. I was nervous. When I popped it out, it was amazing!!! I could not believe my eyes!

It had been a long time since I did a resin pour, and even longer that they came out right! Talk about a confidence boost!

Here are the pics of the resin pony:




Well, the second cast is in the pot right now. I am off to pull it out.

Thanks for stopping by!
