Completed the warpunk gnome necromancer.
A fluffy description:
Demigods, immortal kings and extra-dimensional entities lead their forces against one another in a brutal war. The recent magic-industrial revolution sees a new scale of fighting: a war that spans the sphere with multitudes fighting and countless dead.
On the battlefields of this strange realm wizards are among the elite; the necromancers are never in short supply of ammunition. Wights flow out of deep and forgotten tombs deep beneath the ground. Skeletons burst out of the earth at the feet of the enemy. The slain, gruesome, rise again and strike their former allies. Ghoulish screams and deranged chatter follow this Mage. As the dead tear the flesh of foes, the fighting Gnomes and their allies cheer with fierce rage.

Much better with the new enhancements. I love the detailing on his gear.

 

Thanks so much!

 

Here's an update from my sculpting.
I started 3 1:56 sculpts - a planetFaller commander, a Warpunk orc swordsman and a planetFaller hard suit "duckling".
I'll keep working with the PC putty for the time being. The duckling I'll make mostly out of Super Sculpey Firm, I think, because it has got a large volume.
Not sure how the planetFaller commander differentiates from the other ones except his pose. Maybe some communication looking gear or a deck or something.
The orc's design is having a prominent brow, recessed chin, enlarged jaw and mouth muscles and pointed bat like ears; he will also have long hair. I think some orcs can have facial hair as well. They can be painted green, though, later on, I suppose.
The duckling is basically a big armored box with feet to locomote (via haptic controls). He'll have a main gun, a machine gun and a big shield thing that can be moved around for additional protection. There'll be some other bits and pieces. You can see them later.

The left armature is the Hard Suit.
Check out this box I'm making. It's not miniature related but it might have some sculpting associated with it.

i still wonder how you do that micro faces :rock:

I simply sculpt them very small. :D

(and follow Gene's advice/secrets).

 

Sorry for the long delay. I was out of commission with a viral sickness of some sort.

Added flak jacket, hair, ears, pocketses. I think I might re-do the side lace thing because it's not so great.

 

The design of the Orc's appearance is more humanized or mellower than what you usually meet. I just like to tell a different aspect, I suppose. Orcs were originally made (according to Tolkien lore) in the image of Elves. I wanted maybe to show that a little also.

      I have a painting WIP running, and I think it is going decently well - I am keeping up on it, anyhow.
      I thought I would start a cumulative WIP on whatever random sculpting and terrain I do. It is a pretty big part of the hobby for me, and I enjoy it a lot, so I hope to keep it going on a personal level. While I am easily better at sculpting digitally (by a lot), I really don't enjoy doing it. At this point in my life, significant time spent in front of a computer is work, and I have enough of that to do. So, Ill post my ham fisted attempts to sculpt things for my personal collection below.
       
      So...I have been having some really long and tediously boring zoom meetings, and I have found that I can't both paint and maintain a CYA level of paying attention, but I can crudely sculpt with clay. rather than working on any of my projects that require focus, I thought I'd work on something that can be haphazard to keep it light through the process. I have been obsessive over plant monsters lately, so I thought I'd make a tendriculos. Big, forgiving, and fun - perfect!
      I had a marathon of meetings today, so I was able to jump right in and make some progress. Thus far all I have is an armature with a thin coating of polymer clay - but it's a start!

      So i've got that trio of spiders from nolzur's.
       

       
      They do not come with sculpted bases - unlike most of the nolzur's line.  This isn't a huge issue, except that these suckers have a bunch of tiny spindly legs.  I am worried about getting a good hold.
       
      So I have a few questions:
       
      1: how to fasten these guys to a base?  Just glue the legs and hope, or pin them through the body like a flightstand?
      2: how to sculpt/or assemble, suitable bases to compliment their spindly nature and ensure a better hold.
      3: how to attach the spider in a way that I can paint underneath it OR should I find a way to glue it down after both parts are painted?
       
      So the webbed victim shown in the photo above I have decided to leave out as a piece of scatter.  There is a stone base (not pictured) that I have already glued to a reaper base for one of the spiders.  Each of the spiders has a slightly different pose with their legs - which is made worse by them being bent out of shape.  I'm hoping to use this as an advantage though, and pose each spider differently.  One is rearing back with front legs up (this one I plan to glue to the supplied rocky base with the abdomen glued to the ground for extra support.
       
      Another spider has one side of legs kind of bent under a bit.  I'm thinking this would look good mounted sideways, crawling up the side of a fallen log (not sure if I should try to sculpt this, or find a twig to glue to the base).
       
      The last spider is pretty neutral, but I was thinking of posing it climbing down something just for variety.
       
      Any advice about sculpting the bases vs gluing organic material or mounting something with narrow points of contact would be tremendously helpful.  My indecision has lead to two weeks of no painting.

      This is a bunch of minis in one. I was looking at my pygmy mammoth mini a couple of months ago and I just felt the need to dangle something from its tusks. I found some little bottles I had bought years ago from a Michaels or Joann and the rest of the ideas followed smoothly. I chopped some phosphorescent plastic from a little dino model you find in Fred Meyer and put those in the bottles and they do glow in the dark. I wasn't able to take a good photo of that, alas. I first saw the idea of a large pack animal with lanterns on it, traveling into an uncertain world, years ago when I saw this art: https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/7638820 and fell in love with it.
       
      List of materials
      - Pygmy mammoth https://www.reapermini.com/search/mammoth/latest/44111
      - Shadoweyes Catfolk rogue https://www.reapermini.com/search/cat rogue/latest/44118
      - Adventuring accessories https://www.reapermini.com/search/02638
      - Adventuring accessories II https://www.reapermini.com/search/02963
      - green stuff (I used the silicone sculpting brushes and vaseline to get this level of detail)
      - little bottles from Michaels or Joann
      - phosphorescent plastic (I used the plastic support for the dino pieces from JARU, Inc. Dino World Glow Fossils - no dino pieces were harmed in the making of this mini)
       
      Here are more close up photos.
       




       
      And here is the making process.
       




       
      He even has a uvula :)
       

       
      I chopped off the platform and the swords from the rogue cat. And then I cut off its legs and tail so i could reposition them on top of the mammoth.
       

       
      And then I summoned the green stuff.
       





       
      It was really hard to detach the sacks from their metal anchor. I was basically chewing away at the metal with my pliers. But eventually they came off.
       





       
      Priming this was challenging.
       

       
      I sealed the base with a heavy layer of gloss sealer later on.
       


       
      Invoking more green stuff, this time for the cape, blanket edges and the harnesses.
       





       
      I used the cap on one of my new brushes to support the rolled up corner of the cape overnight otherwise it would have fallen flat. I smeared it with vaseline so it wouldn't stick and become a problem once the green stuff dried.
       

       
      Sculpted the edges of the blanket because just painting the dangly threads on the mammoth looked flat and most unsatisfactory.
       

       
      I think I'll name her Shen. And have her wreck havoc for my players in my D&D campaigns.
       





       
      I don't have photos for the harnesses because after staring at this mini for so long I got dizzy and had to lie down. And then I forgot to take pics and I finished the piece. The harnesses are just twisted long strips of green stuff. I measured the distance from the tusk to the hand and then made them and let them dry before attaching them.
       
      Hope you enjoyed this build :)

      How do you make an octopus laugh?  You give him ten tickles!

      Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff.  I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once.  Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving.
       
      You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.

       
      I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned out.  It's not the most accurate, but I'm proud of it.  It definitely has given me greater confidence in my ability to make something out of nothing.

      Karla, Anime Heroine https://www.reapermini.com/search/anime/latest/50232 is a beautiful sculpt, but the miniskirt would raise eyebrows in my pulp/midcentury settings, so I gave her a bit of a hemline extension with GreenStuff.  I'm also planning to use some eyelets and pins to turn at least one gun into a syringe. Will post more as progress continues. Stay safe and healthy!
