I live in Winnipeg Canada. -26 here this morning.13/02/2018 at 11:23 #84416
Canada is too cold for me or sculpting.
Mercenaries and bandits. 2 sculpts taller than the others again but I’m willing to use them as big men.13/02/2018 at 14:58 #84429
Wow, so much tiny goodness. Will there be any fantasy creatures, or are you sticking with men? I really like the guy second from the left.13/02/2018 at 17:58 #84448
I’m duplicating my 3mm set so I’ll be doing goblins, beastmen, Chocobo, stoneback crabs and maybe a few more (pigs, cows). Not improving as much as I had hoped, there’s only two groups left, soldiers and characters before I get to creatures.
I like the charging guy, second from the right, if only for the hair.13/02/2018 at 19:56 #84454
That’s my second favourite. I’m waiting for some copplestone 10mm soldiers.13/02/2018 at 22:40 #84466
How does Copplestone minis compare to GW Warmaster?15/02/2018 at 00:41 #84553
I don’t have any war master miniatures I’m afraid, just Pendraken which match up nicely.15/02/2018 at 12:17 #84566
I’m not familiar with Pendraken minis aside form their Vietnam range. I like the aesthetic of the GW sculpts, too bad they’re OOP, especially the marauders, orcs and forest goblins.15/02/2018 at 14:43 #84579
Pendraken is not bad. They are not as nice as the Coppelstone sculpts but they fit in well, especially some of the monsters. I really like their dungeon terrain. It paints up quite nice.21/02/2018 at 10:31 #85060
Soldiers, the two on the left are too small. Might also add beard to all of them to make them more intimidating.21/02/2018 at 15:21 #85086
Cool, slightly conquistador in their look. I like the overall theme. The guy on the bottom left is my favourite. Tons of variety of figures.21/02/2018 at 15:38 #85093StroezieParticipant
Those look realy cool!!!
I would love to see some in progress pictures of one of them, just to get an idea of how you go from scratch to finish.
I’ve done some 6mm sculpting but mainly monsters and aliens and such, so far I have failed to gather up the courage to try my hand at human figures.
That being said, this project is quite inspirational so who knows, maybe I’ll catch the bug…

I’m going on a trip so the rest will probably get continued after I get back. There are brief work in progress photos near the bottom of page 1.
Any advice for sculpting monsters? I’ll be doing beastmen, goblins and giant killer birds eventually.
I shamelessly copied the soldiers from this.21/02/2018 at 19:05 #85116

All of this ^^21/02/2018 at 19:42 #85117
I like them primarily because they are different. Based on the fact that I can tell they are Spanish, and the fact that they are microscopic makes you a genius!15/06/2018 at 06:13 #93322
I invested in a light box and did some test photos. I think the quality is already better.
These are also to document the sculpts before I paint them.15/06/2018 at 11:25 #93337Angel BarracksModerator15/06/2018 at 15:06 #93348Darkest Star GamesParticipant
Ya, that last one tis a bit blurry. And i agree, the dude with the sword planted and the shield is pretty great! I really appreciate that you, like Mike, have done civilians. I know I’ve said it before, but they are important, especially to RPG stories.
"I saw this in a cartoon once, but I'm pretty sure I can do it..."15/06/2018 at 15:32 #93349
Looking great. I too look forward to seeing them completed!15/06/2018 at 23:41 #93392
I’m so glad you are back. This is one of my favourite threads! Great additions.16/06/2018 at 05:15 #93401
I was too lazy to retake the photo of the front roll. No amount of lighting helps with camera focus I guess. Also found out my camera can’t use timer function with macro setting so shaky hands is still a problem.
I think groups of 4-5 in a neat line is the maximum my camera can focus on.
Relearning how to paint minis is kind of fun.
I forgot to paint the bases, do you think this unpainted state looks ok?16/06/2018 at 13:25 #93415
Those are unbelievable! The bases work with your ground material quite well. I love the Spanish vibe from the characters.16/06/2018 at 15:03 #93417
Breathtaking work. I think the little bald chap is my favourite!16/06/2018 at 18:34 #93428
Thanks for the kind words.
I’ve learned the hard way that a good sculpt makes for a good paintjob. So many things wrong with this batch.16/06/2018 at 18:42 #9342917/06/2018 at 05:49 #93438
If you fancy having a go at 15mm, let me know…
I’m curious, what do you have in mind? The largest I’ll probably ever get into is 10mm and that would be strictly for RPGing. I’ve bought Peter Pig modern and GZG scifi may years back but couldn’t get over the weapon range issue.17/06/2018 at 08:09 #93447Alexander WasbergParticipant
These are just fantastic! The soldiers looked good in green, but painted up they look even better!

I’m curious, what do you have in mind?
Drop me an e-mail sir, if you would.17/06/2018 at 14:08 #9345717/06/2018 at 14:48 #9345817/06/2018 at 16:33 #93461
Thomaston, absolutely none of my business, but you might think about giving 15mm sculpting a shot – you are very talented, and the larger size would give a better canvas for your efforts. And I don’t even game in 15mm (yet) so I don’t have a horse in this race!17/06/2018 at 17:35 #93468
Do I just plop my e-mail on here?
@Gone Fishing – I don’t mind doing 15mm as a display model for a character but I feel like it’s a waste of effort if I’m not going to be using it for games.
Back to the yet to be painted minis. Having painted the male villagers I’m stumped on color schemes for the women. I was having a lot of trouble thinking of good neutral (commoner) colors for the men. I also want to paint one or two of the women as higher born ladies with more elegant dresses but not sure how to go about it.17/06/2018 at 17:49 #93469
Do I just plop my e-mail on here?
No, no. Send me an e-mail.
Or I can e-mail you, but thought I would leave the ball in your court and give you a get out.18/06/2018 at 08:06 #93495
I just found out the e-mail address is at the bottom of the page.23/06/2018 at 15:05 #93870
Almost done, only the ladies left to paint. Still trying to come up with nice dresses for them.24/06/2018 at 22:46 #93923
Great paint Work! The splash of colour really highlights the minis. I have noticed that brighter colours on smallish minis really makes the pop.
still one of my favourite threads.
its plus 26 here!25/06/2018 at 05:23 #93926Alexander WasbergParticipant
They are gorgeous.
It looks all the more impressive when you see a lot of them like in this last shot! 🙂
http://lasersandbroadswords.blogspot.com My project blog25/06/2018 at 09:42 #93929
Thanks. I was struggling to come up with colorful schemes, the paint I own are for camouflage, I have 5 kinds of grey, green and brown and only 2 red 😀25/06/2018 at 14:08 #93948
Simply beautiful work. The paint does make them pop. (Not surprising, really!)25/06/2018 at 14:17 #93949StroezieParticipant
Any plans on making little dioramas for your towns folk?
I’d love to see a little forge and anvil for that bald headed blacksmith for example.
