Got the heads cast in wax.  I used my scalpel and some heat to open the mouths of 3 of them.  The lower jaws on those will need re-sculpting after casting, but this gives me a good armature to work from.

 

Last night, I made the tree of turtle heads and weapons.  I'll invest and cast these on Saturday. I think I'll try bronze again.

Castings look great, it's almost a shame they're only for making armatures...

 

Edit - this comment was not intended to diminish the role of armatures. :)

I'll add the sword later; it will be in the hand above the head.

 

First thought was turtle martial artist & not the TMNT type but more of a traditional martial artist.

 

Nice start!

      Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far.
      They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

      Hello 
       
        This is my first post really on forums.  I normally post on Facebook. My wife and I paint models alot of the time side by side. Whilst I prep our quarterly contest entry we worked on these Storm Giants...  About half way done.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.
