Mechanised doggie henchman continue to take shape. Think I'm going for a chihuahua in the sentinel and a Great Dane in the Russ.

Superheroes are ace. Dat Burd should have "Annoying" ability... maybe it is just color + goggles that remind me of a certain frog.

I would have preferred the cat to be more different from the base in tone, but maybe it is just the photo.

Futuristic environment for that bank heist was very appropriate. Congratulations and please do continue to impress us, Your faithful followers!

Thanks Wirecat.

You might be right about the base on SuperCat. Not sure if it's just the photo but I'll have a look at it when I next have it out. I hadn't really considered it.

Also, it's not a Great Dane I was thinking of it's going to be a Doberman. Think I might be done with dogs after these two.

Hello again. Been busy building a kitchen so updates have been slow this week but I've gotten some progress pics for you now.

Sculpting on one of our mechanised doggies is now done!
So here we have the little guy in the big walker.

I think he looks a bit cat-ish but I'm hoping the paint will fix that. Maybe.

Then there's this guy for the tank.

Coming together nicely with a good Doberman shape around the face and ears. Not quite done yet though.

I can kind of see what you mean about the sentinel dog, but a bit of paint and he’ll soon look canine. Will the sentinel have a lead for walking the other dogs?

I think he looks doggy enough, the broad snout works well for that

Thanks everyone. I'm lookig forward to seeing these two painted and on the gaming table.

So here goes with some progress for the weekend.
First up its the tank commander doggie henchman.
Now honestly I hadn't planned on this look for him but then I saw a pic of a certain Prime Minister in a Challenger tank...

Well, it's a bit of a joke that makes me smile anyway. Not sure the boy would get it. And though I was a child in the 80s I was only 2 at the time myself so I'll not pretend I remember it happening. I remember her though, she stole my milk!

And next up. Super Budgie has got a little perch to sit on when he's not flying.


That's it for now. Back to fitting the new kitchen for me. (Check out my new Wooden worktops!)

Well here we have one tank totin' painted pooch.

Pretty happy with this little fella.

My old Russ is showing its age a bit though. The paint is a bit of a slap job, but I don't care enough to redo it. Plenty of other projects to be getting on with.

Like a chihuahua in a sentinel!!! That coming next. Probably.

Doberman Maggie looks great! I like how she’s got a scarf as she did back in the original pic, great little touch! I think the inspiration and the dog breed are well matched, but being from a mining area I would say that. The old Leman Russ stands up pretty well and would be great fun for the super hero’s to smash it to pieces in the next game!

It's the googles...definitely, the googles.

As for the Russ, some washes of grime, oil and dust will spiff it up easily and mean you do not have to do a strip/repaint.

My two cents,

Didn't get a chance to rebuild the sentinel but here's a quick pic of the little fella all ready for the job.

Looking forward to seeing him in action soon.

Did I forget to show the progress on this guy?

This was The Monster a few days ago. Bit on the hairy side.


Then this is The Monster after another greenstuffing session. Looking a bit more feathered and characterful.
See, he used to be a chicken but a crazy witchy guy poured a power potion on him and turned him into this.

theCrowe,

You can see the chicken in the monster.

And here I was only worried about being hugged by owlbears! (Don’t worry, its a silly song acceptable for all ages)

However considering all the chicken I’ve fried at work it was inevitable that at least one would want revenge for it’s brethren.

Yep, I can definitely see the chicken, the feathers are much more feathery in the second pic. Don’t want to come across him in the alley behind the fried chicken shop!

The pooch in the sentinel looks great too, are the colours on his controls the right way round? Port = Red = Left Hand and Starboard = Green = Right Hand? Or ignore gobert if the colours were coincidental? Either way he’s going to be cool prowling the Doggy base!

The little guy just became the big guy!

Nice aggressive stompy pose.

It's tricky to get a good angle for a photo of this guy. I think maybe his booster seat is a bit too big so his face is a bit obscured by the bars.

Anyway, he seems like a happy little guy in his giant stompy war machine.

Unfortunately gobert the red/green is backwardsed. I just wanted the dome on the one controller to be a big red button and the flat square on the other to be a little green screen.

Anyway, just the Monster to paint now. Not sure what else I could add at this point. Some spooks maybe. (The Monster's henchmen)

Most go on about goggles, but I will rave about their ears. They are adorable, and dogs speak with them almost as much as with their tails. That sentinel dog is clearly enjoying the walk!

So here's the latest bit of progress. The Monster is painted up as is the base for Super Budgie.

ChaoticMind you're right, he does put me in mind of an owlbear. The boy has never heard of owlbears and was quick to assert that no, he's a chicken monster. But look at him he's totally a purple owlbear.

Maybe a ChickenOwlBear Monster? Regardless he’s really cool just like his mates and enemies!

Think Wirecat is right about the ears, they give so much of a dogs character, and you’ve captured them brilliantly!

Hi folks. Been taking a break from sculpting to (wash my hands excessively and) paint 1:300 scale ww2 planes (of course!) but now I'm back at it with a plan to sculpt the latest notions from the 8 year old brain of my child. I'll let this page from one of his books explain.



So now we have the Monster it's time to have some spooks. The boy loves drawing Spooks. They're very much in the line of bed-sheet style ghosts. But they can have elemental aspects like fire spooks or water spooks, or jobs like fixed spooks or security spooks. You can see the wire armatures on bases that I aim to be my first 2 Spooks. Maybe 4 planned. Two white spooks, a red fire spook and a blue water spook. At least that's the plan. And then there's still his evil witchy friend.

Yet more WINNING on this blog! I’m looking forward to seeing how the spooks develop and the now inevitable evil wizard! I hope you guys are keeping well, the story telling must be helping with the isolation.

And surely the invincible.red.spook!

Please make on eof the generic spooks a.security spook with sunglasses and a.curly wire earpiece in the best tradition of stereotypical Secret Service style security types
