Nativity Set Xherman1964

Recommended Posts

I like the exclusion of the wisemen, since there aren't 3 yet. I still have my fingers crossed for this Christmas though.

 

I was told the wise men visited later.

 

My first impulse was to include them, I bought them and a 3rd mini to convert. But then my girl said, no they weren't actually present at the birth, they visited later.

That and it would become too crowded.

 

I wanted more animals, so I used the cow from Andy's animal familiar set as an Oxen ( I removed as much from the udder as possible to make it look like an Oxen)

Awesome and I love it under the bell jar.

 

I started mine last night, didn't get far on it. Did you find that your figures had a lot of pitting and mold lines? Mine are very rough, baby Jesus was bisected by a horrible mold line and Mary's face is messed up a bit. They have not been awesome to prep.

In fact I find the Baby Jesus a terrible sculpt. The face is almost non existent.

Mary has had some issues as well, but I could salvage that.

 

But as a scene it works well.

Agreed, I'm not sure if I completely sanded off Jesus's nose trying to get the mold line but I feel like it won't matter that much. One side of Mary's face will just have to be rough, I can't fix it. The area is to tight, I'll take her nose off of up I try to get at it. I tried building up the area next to the problem so hopefully it'll blend okay. I did a pretty heavy coat of sealer on the cloth of all figures to try filing in some of the pitting.

 

I think your right though, as a scene it should be fine.

      When I got my Secret Sophie assignment and  saw that I got @Corporea to paint for, I knew almost instantly what I wanted to paint for her. She put that she likes anything adorable and cute plus I know she likes mouslings so I knew I had to paint one for her. As I was going through my stash I found that had the Santa one and knew it was perfect. I also knew I wanted to pair it with a Christmas tree but it took me a while to settle on how I wanted to do the tree. Mainly I was flipping back and forth between making or buying one. I ended up making one out of greenstuff and am really happy with how it turned out.

      The last ornament! This one a little more ambitious; a vignette showing perhaps an aspect of the Winter Solstice. The spirit of cold and death being checked. The days are getting longer again now. 



      Here's the Ghost King, in shades of Ice Blue, Toxic Mist, Dark Sky, and Oozing Purple (w/Ushabti Bone).


      And our heavenly host!

      Another Christmas ornament made! The ice chunks are, of course, just styrofoam bits. The polar bear was a Schleich; a bit big even for a large bear, but fine for a celestial ursine. 



      Here's the angel outside the ornament. The Enochian glyphs on her cape are intended to read "Stay Frosty."

      It got late, so change of plans and here he is:

       
      Painted in 1 evening, using only 4 colors. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. 
       
      Colors: Splintered bone, Turkey Brown, Nightsky Blue and Blackened Brown. I was just going to use the first 3, but decided I needed something darker to finish it up.

      About this project
      I've been making miniatures for about three years now, during that time I've made sculpts for various miniature companies as a freelancer sculptor. Now I've decide do to take the plunge and produce some of my own miniatures. That aspiration led me to Kickstarter.
       
      I've been busy sculpting the range of undead miniatures presented here over the last few months. They're predominantly 28mm sculpts, the Undead Heroes are larger at 32mm scale, to fit their powerful status. I consciously made them an eclectic bunch, including animals. My vision of the undead force is a terrifying mix of all forms of life, bent to the will of their masters. 
       
      During the course of this campaign, I'll continue to sculpt miniatures to add to the range. I have a Facebook Group - March of the Dead, where I'm working on suggestions offered by the groups members. The more popular ones will be joining the miniatures here.
       
      The objectives of this project are to firstly see the miniatures produced in white metal by Macrocosm Miniatures and in your possession In a timely manner. 
       
      If things go really well, then hopefully I can also get a shiny website made, so I can continue producing miniatures and offer them online.
       
      Anyway. I think that covers the background. Time to show you the miniatures on offer.....
       
      To select multiple rewards, pick one of your choices, then amend the total to include the grand total. I'll then collect the details of your order with the Pledge Manager.
