25mm Heroic Style - sculpts to tick over

A few shots of this personal project.

I like doing these things now and again, usually it's to keep me ticking over if I've lost my mojo for sculpting miniatures I intend to cast up (I can make these rough and less polished, and occasionally experiment with new techniques).

#ShoutOut# Anvil Industry Afterlife - Crane Heavy Infantry

The more I paint the Afterlife range to more and more I like it. Usually I find the opposite is true of a miniature line after I've become familiar with all the design shortcuts or sculpting flaws, or the limitations of the casting medium. That's the joy of being a sculptor...

Not with these things though, Anvil have a penchant for being flawless with their digital designs and resin casting. That's part of the reason I'm so happy they produce my sculpts for me.

These guys are Corporate Guns for the Crane Corporation.

25mm Heroics - the prototypes

These are quick mock up's of the miniatures I recently had cast in metal for a personal project. I'll get a comparison next to a superhuman soon...

(The casts are simple coats with no shoulder pads, so these should be classed as conversions...)

More Fallen Dwarves...

The success of the spearman (speardwarf) has spurred me on to finish up a few more.

These are all still WIP:

  • 2 additional spearmen (so 3 in total, I anticipate Anvil will do them in a sprue of 4- 2 front rank and 2 second rank. Despite this second rank mini being one pose I've found that simple variations in the angle of how the shield is held brings out enough variety.
  • 3 double handed weapon wielding dwarves with cloaks.
  • 1 Elite Dragon Guard with a halberd, still to make a shield for them. These will be the inner guard of the king.
  • 2 Dragon Fire dwarves, I'm in the process of remastering these from a 2 man team to a single mini with the fire tank on his back.
  • 2 Grenadiers, 

Once these are in production I feel like I've pretty much fleshed out the rank and file and will make the more exotic stuff.
