RE: Sculpting BlogTraxo 01-25-2014

Thanks for all the awesome replies guys! I enjoy drawing almost as much as sculpting, but i consider myself a better sculptor than artist Happy

GDD - Im glad you like the shoulders! I wasnt aware of the historical correctness to it, but i always thought it just looked better and more practical that way Happy About the shield, i can see i have drawed it a fair deal to small - it will indeed be larger on the models (but with the same proportions)

Glimpse of the Void - thanks man! Really appreciate it!

Bloodbeard - The form of the shield can look like many things - i personally see more of a skull Happy But be prepared - A bullshead shield will be involved in my "secret" project Wink And yeah, maybe he is a bit on the skinny side - but see the drawing as a overall guideline Happy


I havent any new pics to show, but i have a question for you! How would you experienced and hardcore "evil" dwarf fans like for one of the warriors to wield a sword/scimitar? I know its not a traditional dwarf weapon, but i would really like to move away from the normal stuff Happy

I say go for it.

The Tamurkhan mentions the word "blades" at least on time under the Enscorled Handweapon entry.

Could be axe blades offcause. Some of the really old CDs had swords and the dwarfs in The Hobbit.

Bloodbeard - I think i will go for a single sword-wielding dwarf - i just hope i can make one with the right feel and style Happy

I have made a little more progress on the warriors, and they are starting to look like something - its still in the early stages, but i think the two poses work great:



I really try my best to make as much variation in the poses as possible (still limited by them being singlepiece-casts) If people have any ideas, please say so! Happy

Here is the early start for their shield:




I also got some work done on my "secret" piece (which probably is rather easy to guess now)



This will probably be the last "real" update for the next week or so - i start in a new school tomorrow, and think its going to take a lot of my time! But dont worry, i will not let the Darkstone Dwarfs be forgotten Happy

Thanks for watching!

Great stuff here as always...I really like the shield design. I especially like the ax you created, the handle behind the angled blade is a cool idea. I first noticed that design in your Avatar awhile back, and I've been waiting to see you model it on one of your guys. It was worth the wait! Well done Cheers!

RE: Sculpting BlogTraxo 02-17-2014

Well, it has been quiet for a while in this dusty corner of the forum.. The new school is taking its toll, and there is little time for sculpting.. That being said, the Darkstone Dwarfs are never far from my mind, and i have managed to squeeze a little sculpting in over the last week or so..

I want to show you the warrior that is furthest in the process, and i want to show him with the shield, to get an idea how they will look together:



He is far from done, and im still on the edge about his beard - i think it might be too short? But let me know what you think Happy

Oh, and as a little treat to myself, i recently aquired some bighats, and have rewarded myself with putting paint on this little guy:



He still needs a shield, but other than that, i consider him done..

RE: Sculpting BlogBloodbeard 02-17-2014

Very nice sculpt. His pose i dramatic and cool - like his pushing in the front rank.

You don't see many left handed minatures.

I like the beard as it is - has a very 3rd ed feel to it. But the mini wouldn't get bad with a longer beard or some "glitter". Glitter as in spikes, skulls og rings in the beard. All evil guys love to put on some extra skullfactor.

A belt and pouch would give him that soldier look.

Looking forward to seeing both regiments 20 man strong.

I love your classic Big Hat Dwarf...your painting skills (and choice of colors) are equally impressive as your sculpting skills Cheers!
Your newest sculpt is very cool, I love it...but I would suggest a longer beard maybe?

May I propose a scimitar design? Maybe it can be of inspirational use for you. Happy
