28mm sci fi sculpts - Heavy metal casting
« on: April 08, 2020, 06:53:39 PM »
I was able to sculpt this chap up yesterday, based on a piece of art from my rule system Planet 28.
He's exactly 30mm from top to bottom - I envision him as a power armored mercenary/breacher.
It may be a little while before he sees silicone, But he and others should be in production in the near future.

I like him. Probably not what you intend but with a bit of conversion and a weapon swap I see a wonderful Labyrinth Goblin in there!

I couldn't resist casting up a personal copy of the sculpt for myself so i bused out the hotmelt rubber and got to work - A very rough cast that needed alot of fixing BUt i got a paintable mini out of it to show off. Gave him a quick and simple paintjob over breakfast this morning.
So here is breacher mercenary "ned" in his K3ll-I armour.

I spent a couple of hours sculpting this little chap today - He's very obviously inspired by the latest piece of artwork put out by the warhammer community team, showing off some new alien species.

I figured he'd make a cool mini and a fun little challenge, So i set to it. Overall he took about 2 and a half hours, which is pretty damn fast for me. (the joys of alien anatomy, you can cut alot of corners.)

I think he came out quite well and he might see a mould soon.

That's pretty cool! There's a real shortage of interesting, non-humanoid aliens out there. I feel you've done a good job of sculpting to the art without being a direct copy.

Very cool and creepy.

Knowing my luck, I would throw the pin and still be holding the grenade - gulp!

The fourth sculpt in the range - A gun-slinging one eyed mutant. who needs depth perception when you've got a brace of pistols?!

Really happy with his this chap turned out - He's built over a 1:1:1 skeleton of sculpey/fimo/beesputty which made an excellent hard base to add greenstuff onto. that may be my go to method from now on.

I'm aiming to kickstart a run of 5 sculpts around july.











Very happy with how he turned out, He really matched the artwork from the rulebook!

Nice. Love the mutant and the alien. I guess the mutant is named Frank?

That's the plan - possibly in the next two months if all goes well :)

Nice. Love the mutant and the alien. I guess the mutant is named Frank?

Or Danny.  :D




I also finished this chap a little while ago - he's a bit moebius, A sort of travelling psychic.
I'm probably going to resculpt his face.
