    That critter is really nice.

    Tired is enough.

    Another day, another monster.

    I’m starting to feel like an evil overlord or maybe a mad wizard cackling away in his laboratory­čśü

    This one was fairly easy to make and if anyone were to tell me they wanted to have a go at sculpting a monster I think I’d recomend they try to make a Grell.

    So…

    Session one, take an aluminum foil ball, stick it on a paperclip, cover it with milliput and roughly sketch in where you want things to go.

    Now I would also recomend you pause here to let the milliput harden but as I am an impatient gith…

    … do as I say, not as I do…

    …so I immediately added the beak.

    I also decided to make the tentacles seperately as it’s much simpler to form them ahead of time, and then attach them once they are fully cured, than to try and support them when they are dangling from a figure all soft and stretchy like.

    Session two,

    Stick a blob of putty on the bottom and jamm all those tentacles in then draw a bunch of lines on it with your sculpting tool to make the blob look like the hairs / frills on the bottom of the Grell’s body.(see I told you it was much simpler this way.)

    Next it was a simple matter of rolling up a bunch of tiny saussages and laying them down in a kind of brain looking pattern.

    Et voila, Grell’s your uncle!

    And a quick pic with our helpfull friend the Splintered light beastman for size.

    Another monster done, back to the Monster Manual for more! Muhahahahah!!!

    Cheers,

    Stroezie.

    I don’t even see fingerprints on the greenstuff.

    Use Nivea hand creme on both fingers and tool and silicone clay shapers are the bomb!
    If you have difficulty sculpting and you don’t have silicone brushes, thats why you’re having difficulty, get some.

    When I got back from the holidays I found a package from Battle Valor Games waiting for me.

    There were a bunch of sculpts in his lines which I really liked but I was a bit hesitant as I kept running in to various forum posts saying the minis were really big for 15mm.

    After much hemming and hawing I decided to just take the plunge and see and well, some of them are and some of them are not.

    As I paint them I’ll include pictures with models from other manufacturers so you can judge for yourselves.

    Here’s the first ones, four dwarves from the dwarven character pack.

    And here they are alongside some Demonworld dwarves.

    I also painted my own sculpts from the previous posts.

    The Grell

    and the Carrion Crawlers

    And off course I couldn’t resist throwing together a little scene,
    It would seem my new dwarves have run into a little spot of trouble while exploring a newly discovered mushroom forest.
    Luckily they brought along their steam golem to help clear the path.

    Cheers,
    Stroezie.

    Sweet. The dwarves do not seem out of scale to the other dwarves. Your carrion crawlers look great. Very colourful
