On top of the Sherman Jumbo, I have a new project. This is Frozen Ninja 3D's resin bust of a cloaked gal holding a small flaming dragon. I picked it up ReaperCon last fall.
There are four parts: a base, a robed torsos, a hooded head, and a pair of arms holding the dragon. Over the casting was good, but there were some issues with the resin sheaving (splitting off in layers) in the arms and the underside of the torso. These were sanded down, the given a layer of putty, then further sanded down. You can see the putty in the pics.
I also hollowed out the sleeves and a portion of the hood. These were filled in almost to the opening. I used a Dremel tool and ball cutters to hollow them out and tried to match the inside with the exterior folds.
One unique (to me) thing is the base; there is a two-leve' base with some symbols on it, and small stone house built on top of that. The roof structure is built into the torso's back. It sure beats the usual brass rod...
Pics are where I'm at so far.
Qs and Cs welcomed.
So I have started prepping this baby for painting:
And I am disappointed with the quality, the mold lines are sooo bad, and the vents are right in the middle of details, and some places the vents were cut in such a way that adjacent details were lost.
Just a few of the many pieces, black knife for scale.
Nasty mold line, with my first pass at it
Vents in detail, there were worse ones that I already mostly fixed on another piece:
For as much as this thing cost, even at Kickstarter pricing, I guess I expected better.
Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal. So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market. We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin. These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE! Just mail it back to us. Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures. We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
