Witch is looking great and I would copyright "headless boob dog". There's an Adult Swim show in there somewhere

I think I’ll let that title go to anyone willing to be associated with such a show. Not really my bag, but you’re welcome to it. Go nuts.

And while we’re on the subject, she’s all done!


It’ll be a bit tidier with paint on but for now she’s kinda a messy one.

Also I’m getting on with the weasel already.

Had to chip her in half as she was was really long and too tall for scale but I think I’m back to something more like what I was going for now.

Good Point

She looks great, theCrowe. It amazes me how quickly you crank out these beautiful sculpts.

Thanks Cap, thanks Syro_
It’s nice to have both quality and pace though I probably should be doing more home improvements.

Quick progress pic but unfortunately I’ve been forgetting to take pics of this one as I go so here’s the latest finished mini.



Go ahead and name that Ninja Weasel Girl if you have a good one.

I was going to start painting again but I’ve just had another idea for another rabbit sculpt! Doh!

Quick progress update on this surprise last minute magic rabbit.

The wire and then the milliput.

Still not a hundred percent on the pose. Thinking something close to Jean Gray goes full phoenix but maybe a little more in control. More Storm but with less lightning bolts.

Work on the Bunny phoenix continues. From a brown stuff base to get the right body shape and exposed fur where necessary.


And then with a mix of green in the milliput for clothing.


Still got the arms to go but all in all she’s coming together nicely. Sometimes at the wire stage it’s hard to tell what shape the arms need to be but now that I have a better idea of her proportions I’ll be able to see they’re not too long or weirdly positioned.

Ninja Weasel Girl came out really well. As for names I vote for Ginger, fits the weasel colour and her occupation! Bunny Phoenix is progressing nicely too

Ninja Weasel is probably a first, she came out great. But I have no idea for a name, so gobert‘s Ginger the Ninja seems apt enough

Surprise bunny is elegantly dressed.

Thanks gobert. Is that because with the right accent Ginger rhymes with ninja? Doesn’t quite work for a Norn Ir’nder but I like the name. She’ll definitely be painted a nice orangey ginger tone. Beats Liesel the Weasel anyway.

Thanks Viterbi, yes I was surprised at the levels of rabbit elegance reached on this one too. She’s a bit special I think.

So I got the arms done and took a look at my latest magic bunny now completed and thought...

She’s a bit plain. Elegant sure, pure even but still, something was missing.

But then I remembered Fifty’s great Sculpting Greenstuff Roses Tutorial and that was it, the missing element that made all the difference.


So there she is. Thanks to Fifty for some sculpting inspiration.

Rosie the rabbit seems a bit too dull of a name but perhaps unavoidable.

Ha! Yeah, I’m my accent Ginger rhymes with Ninja, but I don’t pronounce er quite as strongly as those from Norn Ir’n!

Bunny came out great, and Fifty’s rose tutorial certainly worked well. I reckon something like Briar Rose the Thorn of the Burrow or maybe Rosa has a more mystical side?

Briar is a great starting point whatever I go with for her. S’pose whoever uses her in a warband can call her whatever they like. I’m the imaginary future where I gather my gaming mates for a B&B campaign.

Further to that possibly unlikely goal I have continued work on one of my very oldest minis. An old metal eagle from my wood elves of yesteryear.

He’s going to be called Asterix I think.

Magic bunny looks nifty. I can't wait to see her all painted up.

If you're still looking to name the ninja weasel, how about Iizuna, which is "weasel" in Japanese.

Bunny is looking good, very mystical. Also liking that helmet on the bird--feels like they should be carrying a horn to play Ride of the Valkyries on

Thanks Josh, Lizuna is nice but I think maybe She can call herself Lizuna as much as she wants, the rest of Northymbra will probably just call her Ginja.

Vejut, I am absolutely going to give him a horn strapped around his back just for that purpose. Though how he would propose to play anything on it with no lips is another question. If I’m willing to accept a world where helmeted eagle warriors are a thing then maybe that’s not a question I need to ask.

If you want to put far too much effort in, sculpt him a shrew buddy on his back whose entire job is to play said horn? Just as long as the shrew isn't named Charlie...

Canine abbess is great, lovely banner work.

Ninja mustelid also very nice.

I like how the rabbit is easily identifiable even as a wire-form, a scaled up version of that would probably get you an arts grant.

Nice helmet on the eagle - and if he can put on his armour he can play a horn, those claws and beaks are more prehensile than they let on....

Far too much effort? That sounds right up my street. And I absolutely love that idea so that’s a big thumbs up from me. Not sure why he shouldn’t be named Charlie but as his job is primarily a Hornblower I’d be more tempted to name him Horatio.

Thanks MT. you’ve got me seriously considering packing in the insurance job for the life of a gigging sculptor. Paying the mortgage off one arts grant at a time.

Obviously, if he's standing riding someone's back like a wave board, he can't be a Charlie, because Charlie don't surf.

(Sorry, Apocalypse now reference)

Aaaaaaah. Got it. No he’s not surfing though, valkyries are all about the riding.

Had to get to work on this right away.

One wire shrew rider. And then with a little putty for stability,


If anyone ever suggests mixing brown stuff into milliput like folks do with green stuff tell them it’s not the same, it’s mushy and sticky and doesn’t hold together very well before it sets. Not recommended for smaller scale figures. Should’ve just used normal greenstuff but sometimes I take a notion to try these things.

Thanks everyone. Been doing some research on valkyries and Horatio Hornblower just had a radical shift in theme. Suffice it to say she won’t be called Horatio. Might be more like a less warrior-esque Brünnhilde, but as a shrew, on an eagle’s back, with a horn.

Well, Asterix and Brunhild his horn blowing Valkyrie Shrew are complete.



Never thought I’d be one to sculpt a boob armour breast plate but there it is.

I even tried to give her little Icarus boots but I was using some leftover gs/milliput mix and it wasn’t really the right stuff. I’ll maybe go back for a bit of detail work on her but this is basically it.

Such good work. I still haven’t figured how to sculpt like you do. Regular clay is one thing, but any-color-stuff I’ve messed with sticks too much to me and not enough to the mini.
Anyway, the Ginga’ Ninja looks awesome. (Though I’m a fan of Liesel the Weasel, and the rose tutorial is solid).
