The cardboard box of doom comment brings back memories of the Steath Box 9000 from Saints Row 4.  Man that mission was awesome...

These are really cool. It's also really interesting to watch you work with your cast armatures. That whole technique seems pretty unique within the industry, and seems like it's working out as a great way to build a wide range of sculpts with a unified look and feel.

I worked on the roots more at lunch.  They are done for now, though I may add more as I add pouches and gear to her.

Also, my client approved the poses for the others, so I'll be moving ahead with those.

Would an Oriental rogue carry a blunt weapon like a sap or a club? as primary, with a blade as backup..?

 

Tiger claws? Or maybe save those for an Assassin.

I worked on the tree trunk and branches at lunch today:

I also used the priest as a putty catcher and sculpted its legs and underpinned its robe:

I've got stress knots now from trying to get the cloth folds right.  I think it looks ok though.  <sigh>

It looks great. Very reminiscent of some of the Chinese "Seated Buddha" statuettes I've seen.

I got a bit more done on these this weekend, not as much as I had wanted to do, but still spent a couple hours on them.

 

The Cleric got more cloth, arm and neck underpinning, and underpinning for his sleeves.  I also started sculpting one of his side broaches, and it was turning out awesome, until I noticed a small hair-like fiber had pulled tight across a key piece of detail.  Try as I might, I could not extract it and ended up ruining about 30 minutes of work trying.  I rage quit at that point and went on to one of the others.

The sorcerer got his legs and lower robe underpinned.

The bard got his rock and legs sculpted.  I also put some brain time into how I am going to approach his instrument.

That's it for now.  I'll likely tackle more on the cleric or druid at lunch today.

The effort looks worth it, though. 

I have to admit, the concept of the turtle druid with the tree didn't appeal to me, but the further along you get on this sculpt, the more it's growing on me.

Ahhhhh I get a little more excited every time that druid pops up! If you do decide to add bags after all, they could be looped onto the roots. That tree is coming along beautifully too. :wub:

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
