Love the step by step of this newer model. I applaud anyone who goes and sculpts their own models. It’s something I really haven’t tried, except for the maggot-centaurs and that was really lazy work on my part. Your skills are really improving over your earlier work.

That arm came from the alligator looking sedition wars model, one of my all time favorites. I wish they scaled well with GW. It puts the current Hell brute and dinobots to shame.

Now that is a beauty! I'm just loving it.
Always like to see the steps and the starting point. Brilliant stuff.

Looking at your creations I'm starting to think that beholders and watchers are becoming my favorite D&D monsters

I'm also a teacher, working remotely full time. Not quite what we signed up for, eh?

The sculpting all looks great. I love the WIP shots with all the different blends of gs and epoxy sculpt. Different consistencies for different parts of the project.

Your blog inspired me, too, to create some stuff out of gs. We'll see if any of it turns out.

When do you get back to the states? Will it be in time to finish your model for the competition?

@Theophony: Thanks Theo, making and sculpting my own models is my favorite part of the hobby. Out of curiosity, which parts of Sedition Wars are you finding don't scale well with GW models? I bought it mostly for kit bashing and using the models for 40k, so I might save some time and disappointment finding out from you.

@Viktor von Domm: Thanks Vik. And thank you for even lurking. No worries about not having a comment to say. What's the matter, you could think of something original to say about my 13th post of adding one additional muscle to the helbrute?

@Ezki: Thanks Ezki. I enjoy seeing the steps of other people's work so I try to include them. I'm happy to hear how much you're enjoying the beholders. I'm liking them more and more too. It started because I needed a spectator for the D&D game I was running, and because it's super easy to make a good looking beholder. But as I make more, I read about them more, and think of more ideas. So I'm liking them more and more too.

@KernelTerror: Thanks! I'm looking forward to painting it. Even with the hundreds of new unpainted minis that I impulse bought while abroad, this will definitely be a top priority to paint.

@DJJJAzzyJeff: Yes, this definitely isn't what we signed up for. The way it never ends, I'm not sure if I've ever felt so burnt out. Hang in there. Also thank you for your kind comments about my sculpt and for visiting my blog. The different blends of apoxie putties is for exactly what you said, I really like the different consistencies and levels of stickiness from different mixtures. I'm looking forward to seeing your own green stuff creations. And don't worry, luckily the competition is purely sculpture, no one paints their sculpts for the competition.

@monkeytroll: Thanks!

That last beholder is looking great and that's a very broad and knowing grin. It has seen things we probably wouldn't believe

Just the “big guys” the gator critter and the level 5 monster are just not to a size where they would match up to 40K power in my mind. If the level 5 guy was the size of a dreadnought, I’d be so pleased. If the gator could be brought up to dinobot (forget GW name for the mechanized beast) size then it would be perfect. Unfortunately GW likes making things to fight old He-Man figures now.

@Viterbi: Thanks Viterbi! I'm glad you like the grin, I put a lot of effort to get the grin just right

@Theophony: Thanks for the clarification Theo. And yeah it is sad how much GW has been letting the scale of things slide.

@aku-chan: Thanks aku-chan! This style of eyestalk is new to me, I usually make them more like tentacles.

@Captain Brown: Thanks CB, I'm glad you like it.

Also everyone, sorry for the slow response. I had LASIK laser eye surgery a little over a week ago and it was too difficult to look at screens before. My eyes have been healing and improving very nicely.

Well, I'm not sure I can say they turned out, but I did some gs sculpting.

It's not my blog, so I'll put pics in a spoiler. You can check out more on my blog.

They turned out ~okay~. Not too bad for being so tiny.

Hope your eyes heal up quick. My wife’s took about two weeks, and constant eye drops. It made me rethink doing it myself.

Eye want to see you make a Beholder wearing glasses/monocles . Years ago when I was doing my “When Servo Skulls attack!” Silliness I made a servoskull of Nerdfest09 wearing glasses reading an adult Servo skull magazine he had hidden behind an Imperial tech manual.
Spoiler:

I don’t always challenge people to do things, but if you ever get extra time when your eyes heal up, you should definitely do one. Who knows it could become a helpful NPC monster in a game. A Beholder who was beholden to a human who made him glasses to overcome his farsightedness. He was then able to study at a magical university when before he was unable to even read .

@Ragsta: Thank you, I'm glad you are enjoying my work, and thank you for the well wishes. I agree with you about the irony like Theo was joking about before that after making so many beholders I was the one that got rays fired into my eyes.

@Theophony: I like your servo skull and your idea about the beholder. That would be fun to make, I'll definitely plan on that. Now were you thinking just glasses/monocle for the main eye, or 11 monicles/5 pairs of glasses?

I’d say he’d have to be a real classy Beholder, so 11 separate monocles . .

Sounds like a fun build Theo, I like your idea. Once I'm back home in America with my crafting supplies, it will be fun to make. I'm already thinking of ideas of how to go about it since reading this.

For the Warhammer fans out there, I noticed that my last post of the beholder brought the number of pictures in my gallery up to a number that pleases Khorne.
(I can't remember if I mentioned that)

Khorne will be pleased, even though they are magical beasts with poor fighting skills. Still a Beholder skull would fit nicely on his throne right next to the Aardvark one .
