Slaine McRoth by Talos Miniatures
« on: May 26, 2022, 12:13:15 AM »
Growing up in 80's Greece, every boy waited for the weekly edition of Agori (Boy) one of the magazines that collected comic stories mainly from european publishing houses. With 2000AD being one of those, every Greek kid became familiar with Judge Dredd, ABC Warriors, Strontium Dog and offcourse... Slaine. It was like the Savage Sword of Conan but with humour and more clever writing thrown in the mix. Later I tried to get every hard cover Slaine edition I could get my hands on. The Horned God by Bisley remains my favorite Slaine arc.

This is my tribute to this great comic hero. Sculpted mainly with beesputty and a mix of magic sculpt and procreate epoxies. The miniature is 32mm heroic scale, meanning about 38mm head to toe. Slaine is a heroic big boy after all. If there is enough interest Im thinking about a limited run in high quality resin. So dont hesitate to post/pm here, or contact me via instagram or email.

While being only familiar with Slaine by reputation  here in the US I can't make any comparisons to the character but without a doubt that is one fantastic looking sculpt that would be a great addition to anyone's collection. Thanks for sharing and put me down for a vote to get this cast up.

 That is a very good sculpt.Lots of detail work and you have really captured the character.
 I would be down for one or two maybe if you get it cast.

That is a beautiful, characterful sculpture that brings back fond memories of the comics. :)

To address the elephant in the room though, if you're planning on selling these I'd be careful how you market them given Warlords recent Slaine release... Wouldn't want you to incur the wrath of people who learned IP law from GW.
