Boxer Rebellion: Box-Turtle Folk, WIP

Recommended Posts

Got the heads cast in wax.  I used my scalpel and some heat to open the mouths of 3 of them.  The lower jaws on those will need re-sculpting after casting, but this gives me a good armature to work from.

 

Last night, I made the tree of turtle heads and weapons.  I'll invest and cast these on Saturday. I think I'll try bronze again.

I invested, did the burn-out, and cast the bronze on Saturday.  Here is the result:

All pieces filled well.  I then clipped them off and brushed them clean with a brass brush.  They will still need a bit of file work, but on the whole, I am very pleased.

I definitely could see myself buying weapon sprues in the future ::): 

 

Awesome sculpting!

Castings look great, it's almost a shame they're only for making armatures...

 

Edit - this comment was not intended to diminish the role of armatures. :)

I'll add the sword later; it will be in the hand above the head.

First thought was turtle martial artist & not the TMNT type but more of a traditional martial artist.

 

Nice start!

Worked on the legs, arms, eyelids, and neck.  I also started preparing the other two armatures (no pictures yet).

      Starting a new figure, from AoW this time.
      Currently worked on the skin parts...and I could not skip the eye on this one haha 

       
      Just for reference and info , I put the color used for this part ...( at least that will be a reminder for me what I used haha ).
       
      Skin : Mix of Vallejo model color olive green and lime green and Reaper Heather Blue.
      Nails and Teeth, Gum : Vallejo model color purple, Reaper Desert Sand and Bleached Linen
      Also a pass of Army Painter Dark Tone Wash to renforce a bit shadow.

      So I posted these sketches for new sculpt ideas to my social medias and got some good feedback. Everyone seemed to be a big fan of the Raccoon and since he was one of my favorites from the pack also, I decided to sculpt him!
      I didn't have my phone with me to get pics of the initial wire frame and GS layer but I went over that with some Fimo clay and baked an underlying structure now and I'll start layering my Primo on top of that.

      Hi !
       
      Started one of the monk fihure from wizkids ( couple in stock so I need to get them done ^^ ), so it may be a good place to make my first wip thread ...
       
      tried a zenhital priming, using tamiya spray primer and Mr hooby ( that the more easy and cheaper to get in japan ).
      from there I just apply what I am considering as my base dark tone..well hehe no garanty here I am exploring stuff too :)
       
      where I am at for now...


       
      i did not too much care about detials for now..let see how this goes xd

      As a test of the clear paints, I am attempting to work on some of the green and purple translucent figures. Here is the Spirit #77098.
       
      I used the Clear Green for the main part of the body.
       
      The head and hands were done with Skeleton Bone & Sepia Wash. 
       
      I'm not sure if I can call this done or if further detailing needs to be done with the "body". Suggestions?
