What's on the Table Now?


With my second batch of minis having been release through 15mm.co.uk's SHM line, I'm hard at work completing several new sculpts and starting a few others for future submission to SHM. Displayed above is a collection of science fiction sculpts I have on my table at this time.

You will notice there are more armed figures in this batch than in past batches as well as some familiar faces among the new ones. There are two new Prang in there as well as a Vergan warrior. You will also notice a few figures that are non-humanoids in there. Two are large alien beasts that will originally be cast without any sort of gear or tack on them. I hope to make equipped versions of them to act as sci-fi pack animals or mounts. One of these figures is based on a drawing by my 8-yr old daughter.

You will also see a couple figures in there  from the group of figs I am doing of civilian heavy space suits, industrial exoskeletons and such.

Hopefully all of these will be able to be molded and cast for you enjoyment in the coming months.

  5. I'm taken back to 1982 when I would be in the action figure aisle of a toy store; lots of "Ooh! Ooh! Oh, I want that one! No, that one! Can I get them all?"

  6. Eli: do you make your own armatures? If so, what gauge wire are you using. Thanks.

  7. I do make my own armatures. I use either 22 or 20 gauge wire. Un-coated is best, though if all you have or can find is coated, it'll work.

    As for armatures, I am quickly learning that though there are some standards that are good to fall back on, there are many cases when abandoning the norm and going with what works is best. I sometimes sculpt a figure without a full armature and drill in wire holes for arms later.
