Very late for shark week but here a new monster.

Without any surprise it is a toy, an invizimal called Tigershark with very little kitbash and sculpt.
But he has some water elementals from Confrontation.

I have not yet finished the pirates, but we already have enemies.

I posted this one before? I don't remember.
Well, if you play D&D you know this guy, the roper. A silly looking monster in the same way of the mimic. A normal looking thing who beats the craft out of you.
And it is easy to sculpt, it is basically a rock.






If you want a litlle tutorial how to sculpt this guy follows the link. https://toy-hammer.blogspot.it/2017/10/roper-sort-of-tutorial.html

The small sea guys are from Confrontation, water familiars.

The zoat has now a brother. This time I was lazy and I dis not sculpt the shell.

Halloween, time for cheap decorations, like some spiders, here some use for them. Dryders. And some dark elf. I tried something different for this guys and girls for the usual "we are evil and wear black and purple".
So more colors, exept for the spider parts in black and purple...

The minis are from Warhammer, some older then others. A mix of dark elves, wood elves and empire.
I have aroundsome high elf minis, I think I can paint them to be a part of this group.
I really like the kitbashed mage with the book.

Well, Halloween is gone and winter is coming. Better to be prepared.


Very easy to make, here what do you need:


a stereofoam ball and a sereofoam cutout, you can use the inside theball if you want to carve it, or a random piece of foam like I did.




Cut the ball in half, do not worry if it looks small, real igloos are.



Draw the blocks with a pen or other sharp object.



Now take the small piece of foam, round and shape a bit.




Make a little slot for it on the main body and glue it.





It is basically done, as base I used a pressed cardboard coasted.



Now you can paint as you like.

I basecoated it gray, whashed cyan, blue on the recesses and drybrush white for last.









Some fake snow.






And we are done.

Some creatures for size.

When I found this poor toy without an arm I knew I could rebuild him better, faster, stronger.

Now, with his new cybernetic implants, this simple bear can protect his Country and avenge himself. Now, he is the CYBEARIAN!

Lately I'm experimenting with 3d printing thanks to the Genova Maker's Village.

I know the topic of 3d print is a little spicy for Games Workshop and other brands, but donot worry, I do not want to print any official models.
At the moment only heroforge and free models downloaded online.

The quality is not bad, at least for bigger creatures. 28mm miniatures are still a little low on details, but if you are good with paint (better than me) you can make some decent stuff.

Here some examples.

Some more terrain: a dead dragon and a couple of gargoyles. Do you know where the gargoyles are from? I like them a lot. Also a Gormita used to experiment a new lava base.

Hello guys, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas full of love and gifts.

Well, back to business.

Looking for gifts I finally found some big cone-shaped seashells. I think they are used for fish tanks, but we'll use them for something better.

Stalagmites! (or stalactites if you glue them on the ceiling).

First of all what do you need?

The cheapest air dry modelling clay you can find (if you are a gluegun master you can use it)
cone shaped seashells
something to use as a base (I used pressed cardboard)
sand
glue
paint



In this tutorial I'll show you how to make stone, ice and lava terrain. But you can use these shells to make some organic looking terrain too, maybe an alien breeding nest, or crystal towers. If you are thinking to use one of these shell as a base for a Roper or some other creature... please let me know if you made it.

Cave stalagmites tutorial
1) make a little blob of clay on your base and put the shells in the order you like. I prefer to have the big sheels a little on the background.



2) sculpt the clay as you like, you can texturize it with a rock or tin foil. I used the back of a brush to make some holes. I also add some big rocks around.




3) flock as you like. I used two different sands to have a mix of small and medium rocks.



4) paint it. I used only drybrush from this one. In order: black primer, dark brown, sienna brown, dark gray, light gray, white.





The technique is the same if you want to make different terrain. For example:

Icicles

The difference is only in the paint, you can check my igloo tutorial to know how I painted the ice. The short version is: white coat, cyan wash, drybrush white, fake snow. Let's see how they look painted and with Santa's friends.



Also, about the igloo, here a bonus figure, the saberthoot tiger toy I showed in the tutorial.
I think it is pretty amazing.





Last, lava terrain. Again, same technique. This time I used the same colors as for my fire elemental. White basecoat, yellow, red wash, drybrush yellow, drybrush black, drybrush dark gray.




And finally, a shot with everything. As stated before, you can put the shells upside down to make stalactites.

If you play wargames I'm sure you have some forgotten army around your house.
It's the same for me, my Warhammer Orc army is an unfinished mess.
I've sold halfof it, but I still have a lot of orcs, and to tell the truth I cannot look at those goofy faces anymore.

So time for an head swap, let see what toys I have around?
Well, in the end I think they look great now! Good proxies for Chaos Beastmen.

There are a lot of photos, so for a full view, check my blog. https://toy-hammer.blogspot.it/2018/01/elephant-men-orc-toybash.html

some great stuff here, loving the variety. Paintjob on the street shark dude is really wonderful, and the shell terrain is something I've not seen in recent years considering how great it looks.

Something different today.

I need a little help. I'm finally creating a set of science fiction miniatures.

The theme will be "cyberpunk parkour", or as I like to call: "Punkour": D.
I defined a series of characters and props, but before having them modeled in 3D, I started with a good old character design.
He is the simplest of this set of characters, which artificial legs do you prefer?

And btw, yes, I can draw. Contact me if you like more art.

If you look back at my elephant men, you can notice I changed the orcs' weapons. I found them too big, but the are perfect for larger creatures.
Here for example a troll.

I originally planned to make these three guys as Blood Bowl players. But in the end I changed my mind and I simply used them as an excuse to experiment with a different palette from my usual one.
Tell me what do you think?
Do you like more these vivid colors or my usual dull palette?

Last February the Tabletop Craft Guild made a contest, use a soda bottle to craft anything you want.


It was a little funny challenge and I made this observatory.

Naturally, after finishing it I got a better idea, a retro-sci-fi space rocket... well, next bottle.

The contest is closed but the votes are not, so in 2 weeks you can check the results. Stay tuned.
