hey Syro...

the Iron Golem is everything the constriction promised and then some!

the death tyrant (i had to check this via google to know what it is all about for starters...) is a really cool thing too...the clea plastic surface idea is a nice twist...me i probably would have used gems on a clear rod...but since i´ve done some research now i´ve seen that idea gets some use too...(i think i need to build so many cool monsters eventually that i will come to a death tyrant sooner than later too^^)

as for the tombstone golem...brilliant! i recently marveld about these animated "household" items golems for quite some time... i want to build a skull golem for sure...also...what do you think about a knife golem? build from knifes around a substructure of hot glue...
come to that... i have these clear plastic gems...all shaped alike but once glued together could make a cool crystal ...whatever^^

i recently ,made an homage work on pacman...i really need to take and upload some pics of my recent works...

@Theophony: Thanks Theo! Luckily we can all hold each other up as examples of why we hold onto massive amounts of junk
@Viktor von Domm: Thanks Vik, I hope you do post more of your recent stuff and have more time for crafting. For the skull golem, do you want only skulls? or do you want more of a golem made from human skeletons? If you look up "Critical Crafting bone golem" on Youtube there's a really cool, huge bone golem made from Dollar store skeletons. I really want to try making one in the future. As for the knife golem, I think that sounds like a really sweet idea, and also a heck of a lot of work. Will you be making a mold and casting some knives or buying/building them in bulk? I imagine the knife golem being the ultimate weakness of hand-to-hand fighters
I think someone has actually made homebrew rules for a gem golem, and probably crystal golems too. I'm no expert on lore, but I could see them going around the Underdark, maybe made by deep gnomes?

just looked up the vid...thanks...another new channel to watch
that bone golem is pure evil....(btw do you see a scale issue with these dollar store skellies?)

as for the knife golem...i have a massive truckload of knifes and blades due to my bitzbox...especially the leftover ogre stuff you can haul in on ebay really cheap...(and which i did years ago)

and yep...i will set the date for a nice update on Thursday... then i will show off

I'm looking forward to your update
As for scale issues with dollar store skeletons, yes there definitely is. Critical crafting seems to embrace that they're not to scale, but I try to stick with ones that I close personally. I find it helps to use only parts of the skeletons at a time, all cut up, as it makes me feel like the wrong scale isn't as obvious. Do you find the same?

scale issue is something that is turning out to have some kind of OCP on me...it grows on me more and more... to the effect that i have problems using frostgrave minis together with warhammer minis...or heavens forbid D&D minis... the differences are subtil to be honest... but hands, heads and so on are items of minis that are of great importance for the character of said mini...

but to be honest... when i was a kid...many kids never had a problem mixing playmobil, action figures and legos... me, i was twitching around and feeling nervous ... i am in these matters a bit more purist than maybe necessary....

Iron golem sure is looking sweet! Great use of materials.

Looking forward to see more progress on the tombstone golem.

@Viktor von Domm: Everyone has different things that bother them, so worries. But yeah, I definitely wouldn't get any dollar store skeletons then.
@Ezki: Thanks Ezki! I've got enough paint on to make it visible, but will be a while before it's fully painted.

Just like last summer because of my continuing education, I'll be leaving home again for a few months. That means this will be a last update on this blog for a while, although I will still be on Dakka and visiting everyone else's blogs. I ordered green stuff and sculpting tools while I was out there last year, but was so busy that I never even opened them.

I'm planning on painting the tombstone golem to look like there are several different kinds of stone making it up, along with dirt, algae stains, etc. For now I just have it a flat gray with a black wash for you can see the details.

Love that tombstone golumn - by strange coincidence, my first 40K scratch build used that same hero quest piece to make a dreadnaught - with pen caps and lots of hot glue! I wish I'd known how to mold the part though.

It reminds me of "Rock" from Galaxy quest. Brilliant!

The death tyrant and the bubbly hell brute are lovely too.

Thanks kestral, that Hero Quest tomb is so useful, I use it constantly, and think it would be really great for a Dark Angels dread. And the tombstone golem defiantly has the same esthetic as "Rock" from Galaxy Quest.

Indeed, the “Rock” from galaxy quest .

Looking forward to some paint on him. Will they be more marble or limestone colored. Also needs lots of moss on them.

Thanks Theo, and I'm glad you mentioned limestone as that's what I was thinking of when I said marble before. I'm planning on mainly limestone and grey stone for the graves, with a few different ones sprinkled in like marble, maybe dolomite. The moss is a good point too, I'll make sure to include it.
