@Camkierhi: Thanks Cam, I've missed you too. That's really exciting that your daughter is getting into D&D and will be DMing. Also that's very flattering that you two will be going through my blog together. I'm by no means a very good or experienced DM but if she wants any advice, you can pass her questions on to me. I'm mainly popular as a DM because I make so many monsters and craft all the terrain, if she takes after her dad she'll be very popular too

@Fango: Thanks Fango, I'm glad you enjoy visiting my blog. Making monsters is probably my favorite activity of all my hobby activities. Thanks for the advice, and it's good to see you back.

Just a small update that I've finished one more bloodthirster head. That means only two head left to finish. Nothing else that I'm working on if to a point that it's worth posting yet.

I'm not working on the last two daemon heads out of the eight total I decided to make. it's hard to believe I'm so close to finishing this step.


I've also decided to start sculpting another spectator for D&D, not out of any need, but just because I like them.


I had some putty left over from my various projects (not all pictured), so I decided to mix up a little more and make a dark mantle (an evil fly squid that pretends to be part of the cave ceiling) for D&D. This is meant to be a master for a silicone push mold.


Thanks for stopping by

The heads look really good!
Looking forward to see how they look on top of a body and with some paint on them!

@Viterbi, Ezki, and Theo: Thanks guys I appreciate the kind words and encouragement. This project still has a very long period of work ahead of it, since 5 of the bodies are only armitures, and the other three aren't too far. But I'm excited to be finishing the heads, which I considered the toughest part. Bodies are easier. Though if any of you have suggestions/tutorials on making the wings, let me know.

Put the pieces together of this bloodthirster head. It bothers me that the top horns aren't lined up with each other. This ones head is so busy that I chopped off the lower jaw to work and parts of it separately, and didn't attach the top horns until recently.

Not where I should be

All looks amazing bud.

As to not symmetrical, nature isn't. People are weird if you take one side and flip it and put them together. So a little squint is good.

Cam is right, I think. Assymytery is perfectly appropriate for Chaos Daemons.

Now showing the rest of a Z'zor team for Dreadball! And also some miscellaneous fantasy models!




Painting Total as of 2/20/2020: 28

Painting total as of 12/24/2019: 138 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit and two hills.

Some more progress on my daemon heads. The one on the right is getting close to being finished.


Also small update that I finished the eyes of the dark mantle, so now it is ready to have a mold made of it.

Great progress syro.

I like the horns not being aligned perfectly. Just look at animals in nature like boars where their teeth/tusks are all out of whack.

They look scary.
Really really good job!

The amount of detail just blows my mind.

@Theophony: Thanks Theo, I like that imagery Though way that would be an impressive inquisitor, would put even Isenhorn and Ravenor to shame.

@Ezki: Thanks Ezki! I'm proud of how they came out, and didn't realize I was capable of it. Still, even with taking a month off, and work leaving me with little time, it still hurts looking back and realizing that I have been working on these heads since October 2nd.

@Wirecat: Thanks Wirecat Speaking of creepy eyes, here's progress on the new spectator I'm making for D&D

I'm digging those bloodthirstier heads. Got to say my favourite is the fourth one along. The evil goat looking one, very chaotic.

It's been close to a week since I last posted here. I think it's been about that long since I got this far on the spectator and forgot to share it.


I also just recently joined the latest LoER contest (you can click the banner in my sig to check it out).
I joined a month late, but I have a pretty simple build planned since I'm a hemisphere away from most of my crafting supplies. I really love the shape of this water bottle for crafting possibilities. I'm making Necro terrain from it. I feel it resembles a combination of the Necron greater summoning core and the plasma generator from the Dawn of War video game series.
