    Well I’ve started sculpting again so I thought I’d shame myself into actually finishing stuff by posting my progress here  :P

    Not much to see yet but here’s a picture of the dollies so far

     

    These are all going to be monsters for Pocket Quest a 6mm dungeoncrawler.

    I plan on doing the following: Othyug, Roper, Carrion crawler, Grell and a Beholder.
    I don’t know if I’ll be able to pull it all of but we’ll see.
    As usual all tips and comments/critiques are welcome.

    Cheers,

    Stroezie

    @Mike

    Fraid so( unless someone makes me an offer I won’t refuse)

    @Alexander Wasberg

    Thanks, I like him to, although to be honest I picked him mainly because I thought sculpting it would be within my current skill level as a wannebe sculpter

    Someone should pick these up for casting!

    Great ‘aliens’ too as well as dungeon crawlers……..think escaped cargo on a 6mm starship……….round up time!

    Ok two more this time

    The Grell (easy peasy basically my 6mm Cephalod aliens but sans eye and with a few tentacles more)

    And the Carrion Crawler
    Came out a bit differently than I had imagined but sometimes when I’m sculpting things tend to flow naturally towards someting and I just go with it. All in all I’m quite pleased with how it came out.

    @ Northrn Monkey

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, but I have never sculpted anything that was meant to be cast so I dont know if these would be castable as is.
    For example do I attach the eyesalks to the beholder or put them on a seperate sprue for ease of casting?
    Or maybe, there’s a cavity underneath the grell’s tentacles, do I need to fill that up first?
    Are there any other thing else I should keep in mind?

    On the other hand anyone interested in these figures could probably tell me all of that

    Btw here’s some pictures of that beholder for those of you wondering

    Cheers,

    Stroezie.

    These look great especially since they are 6mm. In order to avoid IP lawyers, you may want to make them a little less accurate and change the names before casting them – they’re a bit too good. 😉

    A very productive day today, sculpted three more monsters, a purple worm, a roper and a rust monster

    I experimented with using milliput and a mixture of milliput and greenstuff to test out some things I read online.
    The worm could have been a bit beefier and the rust monster a bit smaller but that would be nitpicking, for first attempts I am quite happy with them.

    Another great set – well done sir – maybe that rust monster was bingeing on paladin plate.

    And here they are all assembled, based and ready to be painted as I ponder which monsters I’m going to tackle next.

    Ok you asked for it folks, this is about as small as I can get them so they’ll have to do for now.

    Those are so cool – I especially like the Grell and the Carrion Crawler. I can’t believe you are new to sculpting. Great job!

    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    And here they are with some paint on them

    I also included the rat and spider swarms that came with the Pocket Quest base game which kicked of this whole monster sculpting madness ;)

    I managed to finish another Grell sculpt, this time it’s a Grell mage with a dragon claw staff which came out a little bit larger than I intended but it still looks good imo.

    Cheers,
    Stroezie.

    I have another green to share with you, another classic D&D monster, the Hook Horror. (I’m starting to suspect my 2nd ed.AD&D roots are showing through  😛 )

    He’s proving a bit hard to photograph properly, hopefully once he gets a lick of paint you’ll be able to see the details a little better.

    Very nice work! (But for the record, it’s all downhill after AD&D first ed.) 😉

    Thanks for all the positive comments guys, really helps to keep me motivated to push the boundaries of my sculpting.

    Just to be clear, I didn’t sculpt the human mage in the pictures (though I did paint him😉) he is from perfectsix.
