So, thanks to those on this board, I've been inspired to try my hand at sculpting my own miniature. I've never attempted to do anything like this ever before so I am a complete Noob at this. If I can make anything even close to what others here have done I'll feel good about this.

 

I'm going for a Cav/Mech type thing in about 50mm scaleish.  Perhaps a couple of arm mounted cannons and a couple rocket launchers with a cockpit Nd "chicken legs" We'll see what I actually get...

 

SO! Here are some pics of the tools and supplies I'm using and some pics of where I've gotten so far. 

 

 

I have both sculpy firm and green stuff to start. I'm going to try using the sculpy more than the Green stuff.

Here are the tools I have at the moment, Sculpy pearl tools, Size 0 color shapers, Various wax carvers from harbor freight & the flgs.

Now on to my first attempts at sculpting. I'm thinking I should start at the bottom so I'm starting with the foot of the mini. First a bolck of sculpy...

And where I am now. I smoothed the fingerprints from it.

      I chopped up a legless t800, an ashigaru head, a veritech, some deadzone arms, and soviet legs, and got this odd robot.

      While I did keep him fairly basic, I'm happy with how he turned out. Unfortunately my inability to photograph metallics properly has kinda ruined my piccys of him.

      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I did have to leave out some of the finer details though, there's little, tiny stitches all over him that I could barely see never mind paint!

      A pair of speed painted 3d printed robots I completed during my 4th of July Paint Binge.  I found the GW Contrast paints to be very good at covering large smooth surfaces easily.  The red one was from a KS project by EC3D. (and yes, it's missing an arm) I am not sure where my husband found the other one, but maybe Thingaverse.

      Second time tackling this one (I like it that much!), I think I prefer my newer, colourful version but I still struggled to do a decent job on his cloud cape, I think it needs more time and effort put into it than I have the patience for.
