Captains Log: Star Date 31-10-2014

Well, it's been a crazy busy week. I've been travelling all over the place, including a 20 hour round trip to Bristol to see a client, my daughter turned two and the solicitors (who are being paid by the hour - coincidence??) are dragging thier feet over the house move - all in all, I've not had a great deal of time at my workbench. Nonetheless, I've managed to do some update work on my Cyber-Pirate Captain.

Still a little more to do.

A Pair of Scurvy Scallywags...

Life has been pretty chaotic over the last week or so, leaving me with pretty much no time to move on with my Cyber-pirate band. I managed to grab an hour or so last night to start on a couple of figures, although still very much WIP here they are.

First up we have an Orc pirate captain, complete with tricone hat and cyber-peg leg.

Getting down the basic shapes.

The Old Grey Matter

I said a few posts ago that I've been doing some work recently with Pro-create. For those of you not familiar with this product, it's a two part epoxy used in the same way as Green Stuff, but made specifically for sculpting (rather than car repairs)

Pro-create is the medium I started sculpting with a few years ago (in fact, the miniatures in my first two posts use this stuff). I have a bit of a "love:hate" relationship with it, it's quite a lot harder to work than GS, but holds a line very well and accepts a great deal of detail, also when it cures, there is a lot less "rounding" of corners than you get with GS. It can also be worked, sanded, cut etc after it's hardened (which anyone whose tried doing that with Green Stuff will tell you, Is a right royal pain in the arse!!)

Lost and found!!!!

As some of you know, I'm hoping to move house in a couple of weeks, so have been busy packing boxes etc and generally causing chaos and mayhem around the house (so TLC tells me anyway). Anyway, whilst I was packing away some of my moldelling supplies, I came across this old sculpt at the bottom of a chest of drawers.

So little time.....

So, I've still had pretty much no time to make any significant dent in my cyber pirate WIP pile over the last few days, so thought I would take one of my existing WIPs, make a few minor alterations and add him to the crew.

Mad-Max at sea??

Busy, busy, busy........


It's been a busy couple of weeks. Work has been completely crazy, with wall to wall meetings and new, unprecedented levels of muppetry.... So 12-14hr working days, coupled with a non-sleeping toddler and the stress of organising and packing for a house move (hopefully) has left very little time to push any putty around.
Anyway, just to keep the couple of you that read this up to date, here's a few photos of an Orc mercenary armed with a rather large sniper rifle I did a few weeks ago.

That's one big-ass gun!!
