Does My Figure look big in this?
« on: 09 April, 2021, 09:48:10 PM »
To all Squaxx
Using inspiration from the “Does my Art look big in this?” thread
I think that all of us enthusiastic amateur sculptures/model makers deserve a thread to show their creativity and imagination.

Having only been on the board a relatively short time compared to some it’s not easy to find others creations. But they are out their - Shaolin 👍🏻.

So no matter how long ago it was done, if anyone has pics of unique creations either changed from shop bought kits, action figures or ambitious “built from scratch” figures please post here for all to find under one banner.
(a few details on how it was done would be great hopefully give me tips on future characters)

I’ll start it off with the ones I did over the last year. My latest creation should be finished in about a week and I believe it’s above my “normal” standards

No directly 2K stuff here, but I do have a Thrud that's modeled after Carl Critchlow's character design (so, a link) - the model is not modified, only painted - but I did the base myself:




And this is a Slaine mini I bought pre-painted in Moniave a while back:



(I did model the base of the terrain he's standing on - a cobbled path which you can't see from this angle.)

Loving the Thrud - I was a big fan back in the White Dwarf days, but for some reason never knew (or forgot till now) that it was Carl Critchlow

Sorry about the size and the lack of photo shoot styling but here you go.

There are more here:https://imgur.com/user/usernumber34257/posts

The hand at the bottom of the pedestal is supposed to be glued down at the name but I accidentally knocked it off when I was dusting it ... which is why I haven't dusted it since.

That’s cracking

Did you do the changes/ painting yourself?
