Thanks MT. It's all in those final touches, every time.
and thanks Gits', Graven', and Cam'.

San's skin and eyes are done...ish.

These eyes didn't go as smoothly as they did on the wolf, but they are on and look good in the hand (i.e. when she's 30mm tall).

I think I will go for a gloss finish to the eyes, will give them a bit more life.

Just the hair, clothes, weapons and jewellery to do.
I might also trim her ears down to more human-looking ears.

Thanks chaps, here's the final photos.

Cam', I only picked this up as I Love San and had to have a model of her, the original of this model being so close, I jumped at it. As I said before, I'd only jump "higher" if I saw a model of Saya... anyone would think I've got a thing for badass primal, sword-wielding, girls... Although, Motoko doesn't use swords... Still badass though.
Anyway, enough of my Waifus...

Too kind, Graven'. See the imperfections below.

On the display base:


and off the base:


Can't say what'll be next in here, I have a couple of things to make for presents this month, but there will still be a constant stream of things over in my other blog.
Stay tuned.

I'm loving the contrast between the 'realism' of the forest and the anime feel of the mini itself: Not to mention the little guys in the trees

A Squeaky Waaagh!!

Meercat: "All eyes turned to the horizon and beheld, in lonely and menacing grandeur, the silhouette of a single Grot robot chicken; a portent of evil days to come."

Thank you all, I'm pretty pleased with the whole thing. It now sits just under one of my monitors so I see it more often than my other models.

Graven', I see what you did there.

Red', yeah, the display base does it's job of framing and contrasting with the miniatures, as I intended and hoped.

Ta MT.

CK, I tried to go as anime as I could on the display base, but without sculpting the whole thing in the same way as the wolf's fur. It's "real" enough and yet matches the model, I think.

Aku'. Ta. The trees were a bit more work than buying pre-made ones, but easy enough for anyone with the time.

Ta Gits'.

Ta C'Cain. Was a nice break from my usual modelling work.


Nothing more to show here yet, just wanted to say thanks.

In other news; I have changed around my Signature down below to make it clearer (?) and to highlight my FB, Twitter and Etsy links more.
Took more effort than it's probably worth. *shrugs*

You certainly have a knack for brilliance. I would say that this is your niche. Producing these pieces really brings out the best in your style. Excellent work.

Thanks Cam'. Appreciated, even if it did take me months to reply to your comment. I like to have something to show when I comment and I've not done anything personal for this blog since...

2018 done. Tough year it seems.
Only 2 things for myself, and one of them was for a contest.
Many things were done in my "pro" blog, so I've not been idle, but the added desk space hasn't really increased output this year and it's sad to see this blog only move on 4 pages since last year's round up of the previous year.
I work at the speed I work at, and nothing, it seems, is going to increase that.

Still, time to celebrate the year's production and not get down on how slow I work.

In order of appearance:
Mik's Mech Shop (scratch-build terrain for Infinity):

Hellblasters (from Dark Imperium):


Princess Mononoke, San on wolf (converted from SDE figure and scratch-built display base):

Spoiler:

Earrings, Red marble drop:

Spoiler:


Earring display and matching earrings (scratch-built):




Noisy Cricket (1:1 prop replica):


Bard the bowman on display base tower (Scratch-built tower with LED fire effects):


Spoiler:







There's 2 more projects from Dark Imperium that are on the go, they'll be in next years round up.
18 projects in total done (down on the 20 last year), but a few large batches of figures and quite a bit of scratch-building to make up for that.

Still, hope to do more next year (but I'm also going to be pushing for a "real" job in ernest this year, so that may eat into time if I'm successful...in even trying let alone getting said job), and some more specifically for this blog, for me.
Time will tell, and I'll be back here next year complaining that I've not managed any of that.

Oh yeah, I also finished off my Fallout 4 Greygarden settlement build.

Thanks chaps.

Graven', yeah that was a fun build.

Solar', they all use the same skills for the most part. Each have their own particular problems to solve, but that's no barrier.
Coming up with the ideas; that's just a matter of searching for inspiration.

Let's see what this year brings...
