  1. A tip that worked for me to improve my hands is two fold:

     

    1. Find artist sketching tips.  they show hands from 360 degree and explain proportions and ratios.

     

    2. Spend a few nights doing nothing but hands.  Tedious, but I managed to get my hands 100x better in just a week.

     

    3.  (ok I lied about two fold) there is a technique I picked up somewhere (I forget where) that has you sculpt hands flat on a piece of plastic.  Basic rectangle, add fingers, joints, positioning, thumbs...good practice and easy to pop off and attach: since they are only half the depth you attach it to a pin and add the back.

  2. 10 hours ago, Froggy the Great said:

    Made from the "Mashaaf" and "Great Cthulhu" figures, here's my interpretation of Crom Cruach, the Celtic fertility god who demanded the sacrifice of a third of the children and whom St.Patrick allegedly vanquished:

    Is there something you know that you aren’t telling us?  Back under the bed with a flashlight and broom for me.

     

    Great work as always, I like how you created the mottled skin look.

  3. I second a few ideas presented already:

     

    1. People in suits/contemporary clothing.  I would argue for unarmed as Reaper already provides the sprues to arm them.  This provides figures for many games ranging in genre and style.

     

    2. Dwarven bear cavalry.  Ursula was done but a few more would be great.

     

    3. More cavalry overall.  A suggestion that has come up numerous times is to try making riders/mounts separate.  This opens up many more options including exotic mounts.

     

    4. More beasts of burden (including wagons).  To repeat above, removeable cargo adds to options.

     

    5. More hobgoblins.  Bones 3 was good, but more is always better.

  4. I can tell you why the Testors wasn't working well: that is a plastic cement.  It is intended to melt plastic together.  That it is holding at all is a miracle to the hobby gods.

     

    I normally suggest using carpenter's glue (think thicker white glue) or a Tacky glue for gluing wood together.  I use super-glue when I am attaching wood to something else with a small area and epoxy to attach wood to something else with a larger area.
