MissMelons,

I have no reason to lie. Yes, I did sculpt that gnome and most of the ice age mammals for the campaign. But I do not work for them no more.

It wouldn't have anything to do with their 15mm gnomes being released in September would it? It would be surprising if that were the case. :/

Anything posted in this forum is my personal work and has nothing to do with thier KS Campaign for 28mm gnomes.

That first WIP pic of the bigfoot (with the smooth head) makes him look like a luchadore  ^_^

So what are your plans now for these sculpts? Will you be trying to start a kickstarter of your own?

I am planning to build a gnome kingdom and possibly undead fairies that are hunting gnomes.

Once i have gnome kingdom sculpted, I will mould and cast (if my wallet allows).

I got into miniature sculpting not long ago. So, I am still exploring different miniature sculpting mediums and methods.

I am really not a business person who has marketing skills to run a KS on my own.

::o: Well... That's different. I'd be curious to see your take on undead fairies.

Don't sell yourself short. The creator sculptor behind the successful ArcWorlde kickstarter was 20 when he ran his miniature kickstarter last year and had only been sculpting for 4 years.

 

As you said, keep building up your sculpting techniques and keep posting your work.

Thank you Darsc,

I have long way to go, practice after practice. I will look up on ArcWorlde kickstarter.

If I were you, I'd also take a look at the Oathsworn and Stonehaven miniatures kickstarters. Their level of sculpting quality and attention to detail is quite good and somewhat similar to your style in some ways.

 

Plus. They've both ran several successfull kickstarters by keeping their offerings small and keeping the pledges simple, usually by grouping 4 or 5 minis together. They don't over promise, they keep a close eye on their shipping costs and production times, and they've been very punctual in shipping out their goods.

      Hello everybody,
      so once these came out in retail I was really pretty thrilled and bought some as soon as possible.  Now that I've taken photos I see tons of errors, but oh well, I'm probably not going to fix anything any more with these two.  
       
      I'd like to just mention that these two little gnomes were great fun to paint and as my second and third Bones Black figures that I've painted, I do enjoy working with the material.  I did prime them, and the only real issue I had was those first coats of primer, and also a first coat of paint sticking on the figure properly (yes I washed them before starting to paint). Also removing the flash was a bit different than removing flash from metal, but not a horrible inconvenience.
       
      Anyway, here they are, hope you enjoy them!
       

       
      and the lovely pair together:

      Here's another set intended for Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago.  I tried to do up the Bloodstone Gnomes as Tribals, as one of the Tribal traits is Pygmy and their armor seemed that fantasy MesoAmericana

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!

      Loved painting this little crew. They are the size of the new Kobolds, (those are 20mm bases) with lots of nice details and character to pick out. I tried to use lots of pastels and light greys (and odd hair colours) to make them look distinct from dwarves.

      Have you ever thought to yourself, 
      "If only I could make this mini temporarily huge, I could really go to town on the details, blending, etc..."
      Because this line of thought is about to get me into trouble. I've seen quite a few examples of kickelf busts done here, and seeing the sunbleached and sorry state of some Garden Gnomes I found last year in a forgotten tote bin, ideas began to ferment. Also I've been playing more Mordheim than is probably healthy on the PS4 which led to dreams of Gnome Witch Hunters purging the lawn of weeds and heresy. Which then led to various other forms of madness that can be expressed in a lawn setting.... but for now let us begin with Gnomes and Mushrooms.
       

      Partial basecoating done with some ancient craft paints, as I'm somewhat intimidated by the sheer amount of surface area I'm dealing with, and the fact that my skintone blending is not something I feel is paticularly strong as of now. The plan is to have his shirt come back up to white, and his overalls will also be black. The shoes as well, maybe. Beard and hair will likely be blonde. His walking stick might be converted to an axe once I find my hobby saw and get a pattern traced on some balsa wood. Overall, the vision is of Puritan/Amish village mob.

      I've already coated the stems in beige spraypaint, and I'm thinking to paint the caps in an orange/red with white in the holes. I'm tempted to try sculpting some Malefaction faces on them, but seeing as how I've never sculpted anything before I figure it's best to get used to painting the absurdly large first. (As I type this I hear the voice of future me muttering something about how the sculpting is inevitable and something about moldmaking. He's suspiciously silent when I ask back concerning winning lotto numbers...)
