Were wolves from SLAP Miniatures
« on: October 05, 2012, 12:30:08 PM »
SLAP miniatures is a little venture to start selling sculpts produced by myself.

We've got six figures on release as of now, were-wolves to be precise! Let me know what you think.




The figures can be found here:  http://www.slapminis.com


Kind regards

Not bad at all! For once 'obviously' naked, which is both logical (clothes would not follow the anatomo-morphological changes) and gamer-friendly (they can be used in *any* period). Will there be female variants -worthy of mention in the TMP 'Need more boobies' board? Then remember that according to Desmond Morris & al. a single pair of breasts is associated with the upright, bipedal pose :D

Yes there are a few females in the works, and will stick to the 'Desmond' convention  :D

Nice to see werewolves that are not just shaggy German Shepherds standing on their hind legs.  These have a kind of "Anubis" look to them that is very interesting.  Nice work.   :)

Very interesting, certainly not of the ordinary slathering monster variety that most other werewolf sculpts are made to look. They almost look like they're composing a speech or reasoning an argument... Good stuff :)

Nice to finally see these guys done!
A bit buff for what I had hoped to use them for, but they look great!

Cool stuff, can't say I'm a big fan of how their hands are positioned though...

Thankin yous. What were you intending to use them for may I ask?

Yes... There has been a bit of a hiccup there between what I thought was being modelled and what I ended up with. I assembled them as they fit together. but with a bit of modelling skill (wee bit of filing and perhaps a little filling) you can reposition the arms quite easily, and there is a certain amount of interchangeable ness in there too.


Also, I'd just like to say that there is now a 15% discount on all of the werewolves and the pack if you use the following code during the checkout process;

SLAPNSAVE

So you can get 'em at 2.83 each... Not too shabby! Lasts until the end of November.


Cheers


Stu

I was going to green-stuff some clothes, capes and scarves onto them and pass them off as an alien culture of furry-folk.
