Started trimming the suspenders, only to find out that I needed to glue them down!

I can see your thought process through this: " I'm going to put scales on his skirt there............may be I should add a little more to it............what the heck, might as well put scales on his WHOLE armour........"

 

 

Loving what I see. It all works together so well. I'd call this a success!

Sometimes when seeing you sculpt I wonder...

 

You could as well buy a few dollies and sculpt the minis you like.

 

That armor is so cool!

The plan was to put the scales all the way up from the start. See reference pic at start of the thread....

I am finding it both easier and harder to do than I thought....

The scales look very uneven to me for example, and once a certain time is reached, the GS does NOT want to stick to the lead....

 

Once again, for those coming in late, here is the tutorial on scale mail sculpting I have been following....

 

Now I have to do a head transplant, as this guy's helmet covers way to much to allow me to try and modify it....

Suspenders, visor, peg leg, AND armor, all look TERRIFIC. Doing Green Stuff modifications to minis is something I haven't really tried, but, with all the inspiration you are supplying, I may just have to give it a try.

Keep up the WONDERFUL WORK...if you feel like it.

Comments like this are what keep me going!

 

Give it a try, after all the Gs/putty work you do, I doubt you would find it too hard. ..

I think his scale mail came out pretty nicely, actually. Good work on that!

 

What are planning to use for the head swap?

      Some town guards to keep those pesky adventurers in line.  Sorry for the pics, I almost forgot to post these in time so they were rushed.

      This week I finished up the last of the Town Guard from the Bones II, Expansion 2, "Town Guard" set, by painting the Spearman figure.  There's been a number of these posted here of late, so I thought I'd add mine to the forum as well. :)
           His spear was all bent out of shape, and I tried the usual Bones boiling water straightening method to get it right again, but just wasn't able to get it perfectly straight.  While I don't mind a little "wonkiness" in a wizards staff, I felt the spear really needed to be straight.  So, I replaced the Bones spear shaft with one made from a round toothpick.  It was no problem slicing off the original shaft, drilling through the hand, and drilling a small indent in the bottom of the spear head, and then gluing it all back together again with Gorilla Superglue.
        I then did a simple tabletop paint-job on him, added an old Space Marine transfer to the shield, and based him for use with Frostgrave.
       
      As always, C & C welcome.

      Probably won't get around to actually putting paint to pvc until later this week as I have some midterms early this week.  But I took an hour to clean these guys up and sketch out some ideas.
       

       
      These spearmen will be representing the members of the city guard (which is really just part of the army) of an Elven city in my homebrew 5e campaign.  The elves have extreme reverence for the Sun and Moon and consider them driving forces of nature and thus very powerful.  Hence the design on the shield.  I think I might be biting off more than I can chew, thinking I'll be able to freehand this, but I'm up for a challenge.
       
      Areas in blue (which is basically just the pants and the scarf/padded arming cap) will actually be a pretty basic creamy linen offwhite.  Debating for the shield whether I want to do the design in silver and gold, or simply yellow and gray, would love to hear other people's thoughts on that.
       
      My goal with this project is going to be to paint everything but the face and shield as quickly as possible and spend a decent amount of time on the face/eyes and a good deal on the shields.
       
      edit: grammar
