A client of mine has commissioned me to produce a new line of oriental-themed turtle people, based on box-turtles. I'm pretty excited about this project as I love the subject as well as the challenges that it will present me. We are going to take a modular approach to this, with me creating a fully sculpted shell with arm and leg armatures. This I can then cast in bronze and use to make many different minis. I am also planning on making several heads and casting them to be added to each sculpt. A turtle head is pretty generic with little possible expression, so I should be able to make a few variations and reuse them. I will also be sculpting and casting various oriental weapons, hats, and other accouterments to be added to the sculpts. After all that, I will be making three sculpts to begin with, and we'll see where we take it from there. If it all turns out, you'll likely be seeing all of this on the KS page at some point. Here is the basic concept (this is very rough and I am not very good at drawing; the 3D sculpts will be a lot better): Here is a close up of the basic armature concept: Last night, I began the project by making the armature and underpinning the shell Here is the top view: And the side view: I will be basing the turtle parts on the Eastern Box-turtle: And finally, as I was typing this, the bronze came: Now, I am going to have to figure out how to cut that up into chunks that can fit my crucible. More to come soon. Andy
Since it's arrival last month, I've been experimenting with my first 3D Printer. Today marked the first finished painted projects that were made on it. Several Giants, designed by Duncan "Shadow" Louca. The Gourdlock, by dutchmogul: One of my favorite finds while randomly searching for STL files, the Dwarf Rock Star, also by dutchmogul. Completing my Frostgrave Bestiaries is an eventual goal...here's a simple crab from Rocket Pig Tortles seem to be the new hotness since their introduction in a charity event tied to "Tomb of Annihilation". These guys are a mix from Fat Dragon and the wonderful DM Workshop The last are a murder of Redcaps, again designed by DM Workshop. I swapped out their weapons to give them some variety.
