Rabble Rouser (3/8)



  1. I'd love seaguls, they would make great little charismatic trouble makers. Just a gang of them squawking about "MINE MINE MINE"
  2. My package came today, and all of the miniatures were in perfect condition. They look awesome and I cant wait to prime them and get it all nice and painted, especially the mole in the hole, I already have Bottles references.
  3. I suspect he had this guy on the sculpting board for a while before posting up the picture. Either way, he's a fun looking one. I'd have to go all out on the base, making it look like it's being dragged through the dirt, with it lightly bunching up at his feet digging into the ground.
  4. Well, I want them to be fairly sturdy, have them be lightly curled but not accidentally be squashed flat if someone grabs the miniature. Though I did find that I can lightly drench it in thin super glue and it will be hard enough for my requirements.
  5. Armadillo is a definite - although the original plan was to make him dwarf-like, a tough, plodding tank, with a big shield. But I think that's out; I've just found out they can jump 5 times their own height, and run at 30mph! I can't imagine a dwarf pulling that off. 30 MPH!? I have a hard time imagining that. Maybe if they are in a ball rolling down a steep hill? ((Might be a good stretch goal, have a small 'rolled up' armadillo figure, like the Mole in a Hole for comparison)) I really think that you need to think of someone sneaky, or very very cowardly, cause the only time having the amour on your back would be if you were running away, which Armadillos are apparently very good at. Also swimming, apparently very good, they can hold their breath for five minuets (and as someone once said, "to the Armadillo, every any end is the deep end"). Maybe Pirate Armadillo? For the birds, beaks and talons are always good (I'd love a creepy gothic preacher looking owl, maybe paladin (owladin)). Birds are very dexterous with their talons, I've seen a crow bend a wire into a hook to get something he couldn't reach. This could certainly make for an interesting 'pirate' set in a later series, who knows.
  6. I love the new critters. I've already yapped on about the back stabbed armadillo but really I'm just in it for the ride now. The snake is an awesome addition (been meaning to find one for Ironclaw), and the shrew looks devious I'd say. I haven't even gotten the previous ones yet and I'm already attempting to throw money at the screen.
  7. I don't mind duplicates, not that I've gotten any sense the Bones II kickstarter was one of the first miniatures I've gotten other than the How To Paint kit. I'll still grab a few minis, it tends to be of more obscure things like the were creatures, compulsive purchases I get from my local game store because I need them 'now' instead of later.
  8. Alright, did some more stuff, added some horns which really need some more work and smoothing. The dreads on the other hand I'm kind of proud of. I'll texture it once it hardens a bit more, but even then I think it's going along nicely. Also worked on the body some more but I'll post up a proper picture once I've made some notable progress.
  9. Eyup I'm not as big of fan as I let on (though Gilda 'is' my favorite for some weird reason) but I enjoy doing silly stuff like taking something gritty, detailed, dark, and painting it up as some light hearted character or have a silly story behind it.
  10. I've actually got a vulture like creature from the Bones 2 Kickstarter. I'll probably sculpt a little fez and paint him up in similar fashion. Have Gilda and her grandpa together ;p
  11. Alright, I did do a bit more fiddling today, I started off with the top half of the head and then let it dry overnight and messed with the bottom half today. Probably not the best idea but this head is there for me to practice on. I did a bit of texturing, and tried to depict the 'cheek poofs' though I can see that I might actually have to sculpt little cones and add them to the cheek and make the fur texture on them to give them the tufts as depicted in the drawing. Though I feel like I'm slowly getting the hang of it all, and that by the time I finish it I can get the one on the figure to look proper.
  12. The technique seems to work very well, though it's brought it to my attention that I might need to grab some different shaped color shapers to create fewer creases in the greenstuff for more cylindrical shapes like the muzzle. I did just add some more detail tonight but I'm dead tired so photos will pop up tomorrow.
  13. You mean something kind of like this pudgy fella?
  14. Added the eyes to the dragon. Zombie dragon ;3 Got a convention tomorrow so hopefully by then it will cure solid and I can start on all the other details to it when I get back. Also used some extra putty to create a few tiny hands for a pear shaped anteater character so that it would be easier to attach.
  15. Well, finally starting the head again. Because this is a practice head I'll be making it a bit on the big side to start off with. As demonstrated in the tutorial above I have made the 'skull' before adding eyes and the 'skin'. Also, because I'm still impatient for my own good, I used a blue heavy greenstuff mix. Looking at the tutorial photos and stuff, I'm curious how the seams are blended so well.
