Thanks guys, its encouraging to hear that real grown up gamers also dig what I'm putting out there.

Tonight's progress comes in the form of a mummy-stage Sneaky Dog and a wire skeleton Banjo SuperCat.

The photo's not the best really but you can see the long neck on Sneaky Dog. There was a whippet tied at the school gates this morning and the boy and I both took one look at it, looked at eachother and went "Sneaky Dog!" So thats that.

Then on the wire frame Banjo you can see he's in a dynamic action pose, one foot planted the other out behind, bit of a superman pose in the arms and a cape flying out back. Well maybe I you squint at this pic you could see that. The mummy stage might be easier to see the shape.

Anyway, I'm super excited for this one!

Green stages on the doggies is progressing, slowly.

Whilst I don’t see myself as a real grown up (despite the years), I am loving these minis! The mummy stage of super banjo is already looking the business too!

Sneaky dog is coming along nicely and even at that stage there's a bit of personality coming through!

Tonight's update sees one more Doggie Henchman done with greenstuffing and ready for some primer.

Still not sure if he needs a hard hat so I reckon I'm gonna get some paint on the guy and eyeball him for a while to find out.

He looks really cool, the tool bag is just magic!

Considering their scale - superb! And thank You once again for providing some sculpting stages. I personally can't overcome my fear to go below 32mm. But maybe envy will do the trick one day...

Well Wirecat I'm not achieving anything close to your level of precision. I actually had a look at your sculpting WIP pics before I started this whole process to get an idea of how to go about it. So thanks for showing us those they were very helpful.

Tonight's progress is another completed doggie Henchman.

Rocking out with a spanner!

Thanks cap. Glad you like them. Not much of an update tonight I'm afraid. There have been a few issues. The Old English Sheepdoggie got stood on! Not to worry he's been mended now and painting has begun on both. I also thought his nose needed a bit more fur too so that's got to cure before I can get back to painting him.

I've also been working on the Doggie HQ defensive weapons but sadly nothing is finished so nothing to show yet.

The epic struggle between super cute good and super cute evil continues. Also. Kitty Mitty now has a magic top hat. You know, for magic tricks.

Great group shot(s)! Wonderful opportunity to show off their individuality. This would need an industrial or a suburbian battlefield though...

(goes away to kick the "Suburbia" out of the stupid wire head)

Let's take a ride, and run with the dogs tonight
In Suburbia
You can't hide, run with the dogs tonight
In Suburbia.

Break the window by the town hall
Listen to siren screams
There in the distance, like a roll call
Of all the suburban dreams.

Aw, it's hard to see that one with hammer and satchel as evil. You captured the face of that sort of dog perfectly.

Man, they are just awesome! The scotty playing the spanner like it’s a guitar is great. The top hat for magic on kitty mitty is a stroke of genius!

Haha, Petshop Boys. Wierdly appropriate.

I was actually thinking just that, about an urban setting for this. I was thinking of adapting old Necromunda rules for a full on Raid Scenario. Proper industrial setting that.

And AT you're right, those doggies are just too cute to be proper bad guys. Turns out I can't sculpt evil. Good job I'm not doing vampires and zombies for the boy's "Halloween Army" (that's really a thing. He has an undead skeleton T-Rex and everything!) Imaginethe blood curdling terror of a super cute zombie giving you those puppy-dog eyes because he wants your brains.

Godert, I can't claim the genius. I just do as directed. But I agree, it was a top idea. The child is full of them.

Work begins on SuperCat's sidekick SuperBudgie.

Not so much a wire skeleton as a... Magnet skeleton?

And with the obligatory coat of greenstuff. Not very impressive at this stage I know but they all gotta start somewhere.

I've also been required by my creative director to show you all this.

He's seen all your comments and encouragement and is a very happy boy. So thanks from both of us.

Some proper WIP for tonight's post.

Banjo SuperCat and Sneaky Dog get some green. Spent most of the time on Sneaky Dog's leather bomber jacket.

Today I've gotten some painted artillery to show.

The lascannon is a bit rough and ready and admittedly not so exciting as the big clown cannon but they're both very useful.

I have also been producing some bombs for the launcher. Their design owes much to the style of bombs in Danger Mouse.
One big counter for the supply of Bombs the doggies use and another smaller one so we can place the bomb they just launched beside the hapless hedgehog (Bwa ha ha!)

In proper sculpting news. Super Budgie has some features.

Actually I'm not at all sure you could call that proper sculpting. Wings and legs have been done separately and all will be assembled tomorrow.
Banjo and Sneaky are also coming along slowly too. I'm hoping to get them both more or less finished tomorrow too so hopefully all three to show soon.

Some solid progress on the sculpting front today. Firstly we've got this guy done!

It's Sneaky Dog, fresh from his latest bank robbery. But what's that ominous shadow behind him?


It's this guy! Super Budgie is complete. Not surprising that he's done before Super Cat as he's so small.

Here's the crime fighting duo beside the cover of the boy's book.

Unfortunately Super Cat isn't quite done yet. Still some facial features and his shrink ray to complete.

But also, I've been having fun with magnets on these three.

As you can see in this shot Super Cat has taken the magnetised swag bag off Sneaky Dog. (Thanks to the wire skeletons inside each sculpt)
and Super Budgie (also magnetised) has swooped to the rescue grabbing Super Cat in the nick of time.

We can put the bag on the budgie, the budgie on Sneaky Dog's hand and so on. The play potential is looking great! I could see more magnetised items in the future.

Danger mouse! Power house!

Ahem... anyhow.

Super budgie is looking impressive! Those little goggles are excellent

Absolute genius work you’re producing theCrowe. The kids must be loving the magnetised bag and budgie! It’d probably last about 5 minutes in my house though! I can’t begin to imagine what you’ll produce next!
