The Gronk is looking set to take over Bounty Hunting from Strontium Dog! Excellent work.

Thanks- he is rather lonely though so I will need to give him a pal (or SD) but not sure who - I’m not doing Jonny but a McNulty or Wulf would be a good challenge eventually

Well it’s a couple of days late but here’s my latest attempt at brining another tooth character into the 3D world.
This one as per my Gronk attempt was entirely made out of skulpty (apart from the filler for the gap’s when I put him together)
I also used the flexible part of a little clip on lamp for his arms which gives interest in posing him differently now and again.
I’ve enjoyed playing with sculpty and will go back to it but I must finish my next 12 inch character which I’ve been adding to,carving and sanding into shape off and on for 8 months now 😳.
Hopefully when you squint your eyes he’s recognisable as Dredd’s pain in the arse Walter the Wobot.

Enjoy

Your thread is my first port of call when visiting this forum.

The Gronk and Walter, superb, as is the Jaroo. Glad to see you took a punt on using Skulpey, it’s such a  versatile material.
Best of all you can rework your sculpture as much as you like until you’re happy it. What's more unlike Milliput there is no time restraint, just cover it in Clingfilm and you can work on your piece over a few days.
Great idea adding flexible arms to Walter, and you have captured the personality
of the Gronk perfectly.

How about some start to finish pics of your creations, would be great to see
your methods and progress as your project works to completion.
 
Anyway as you asked so nicely to see other creations, here’s another one of my past pieces.

Thanks atp

Yes I did enjoy using sculpty and on one or more occasions I threw the toys out the pram doing Walter and started again which would have been impossible with milliput. Though it’s still useful filling in those gaps when assembling.
I will be using sculpty again (and I have a few figures in mind) but I need to finish an ABC warrior that I started converting from a Batman kit way back last October and I’ve been using milliput.

By the way your Mean is awesome the facial expression and details all over him are great. The paint job is superb.
How long you been making these?
I’ve always dabbled in painting models and mini’s but only started converting with my Hammerstein and slowly found the confidence to do more and start from scratch (ro-jaws , Hoagy, Gronk and now Walter). I was frustrated at the lack of 2000AD model kits that weren’t Dredd/Death/Anderson so I had to take matters into my own hands. 😂😂😂

If anyone is new to the board and interested in modelling I recommend looking at atp’s links on this thread there’s a fantastic Dredd a couple of pages back.

Once again if anyone else has made or converted anything to a 2000AD (in fact anything) post it here and share with the board.

Just to add to the superlatives and say thanks, Trooper McFad, these bring a smile to my face.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Thanks, Just glad others enjoy the things I put together.

All the creations sit on the cabinet next to me in my office (Daughters old room) and when ever I get frustrated and bored at long zoom meetings I just glance up and they make me smile 😀
