@tjub: Tackar! Hehe, the power of coincidence! No, not a coincidence. It's an omen!

@Carcearion: Thank you! We work with visuals in models. If you can't see someone does evil, how can you tell?

@Bloodbeard: But only almost.

@Abecedar: Haha, should have figured! There was a ridiculous amount of cruelty toward Elves in the image salvage of HoH and CDO. Elves getting their heads blasted asunder by blunderbusses. Elves stretched upon altars. Elves in tarpits. Elves bombarded by Purple Sun of Xereus. Decapitated Elf heads IIRC. A flayed Elfskin (OK, I was guilty of that one). The list goes on and on.

@Ghrask Dragh: Thank you kindly! No mercy for the pointy-ears here.

Oh my! and she has a Zharrling with her as well! Here is the burning question, will the young one have a beard???

We have a dashing sailor captain, and a proud mouther and child, this kit is already shaping up to be a quite a collection of characters you won’t find in any existing range Big Grin

Well I know you've done more with the Hat! Big Grin

I do hope the little'un already has tusks, you have a very clean and neat sculpting style (on these at least that elf is anything but clean!) It reminds me of Kev White which is every bit the compliment it's intended to be

Makes them very 'paintable', by which I mean I want to paint them!! Cheers!

Will have to stop by the store soon...

@Carcearion: Time will tell!

@tjub: Tackar!

@Enjoysrandom: Yarr! Thanks.

@Bloodbeard: Thank you!

@Timothy Archer: Soon...ish. Got some other projects to clear before sculpting can resume on the matron and child.

@Ghrask Dragh: Very good point! I've been on the fence on whether the child is old enough to sport tusks yet or not, but there is place left for them. Thank you kindly. Kev White has a great style.

The Kuthuvud of Skintaxmountain did evolve during last SM tournament. Managed some shoulder pad sculpting during the evening. Its owner has started to arm it.

RE: The Red Host of Nir-Kezhar [16-9-2017]Admiral 09-16-2017

@Pappa Midnight: To be revealed... Mayhap.

Harbour Skulker of Ancient Times

Since a slave, a lord and a lady will be in the same kit, better include a middling sort of scum as well. This one was done mostly as a quicker exercise in posing and anatomy. I am sure the pose came out clumsy, but cast it will be regardless. Likewise, the knives came out thicker, broader and shorter than intended. Will try and get longer, sleeker and more curved blades for similar sculpts in the future. It's a tad big. Aside from that, does anything look awry?

Equipped with a boar's tusk helmet, this lice-ridden bastard sneaks and stabs with glee, slitting purse strings and throats alike. The helmet is certainly a luxurious trophy from a previous victim of higher standing. Small chains wrap around one of his wrists. A warty scourge of the rowdy port and an unsavoury fellow on any vessel, this Hobgoblin still has his uses in boarding actions, particularly if he can sneak upon the enemy captain and deprive his crew of leadership in the midst of critical combat. The intended pose is tiptoeing forward, torso bent back, sneaky-like. However, it seem simple enough to tilt the model on a slottabase to achieve a different impression.

"Just one more cut..."



Dress inspired by Robbie McSweeney's depiction of Akkadian warriors:

What a great sneaky little git! I like the pose, I think you already know the second pic is better, he looks like he has more evil intentions than the first

Rally great stuff again, your sculpting is very impressive!

The Red Host of Nir-Kezhar [18-9-2017]Admiral 09-17-2017

@tjub: Tack så mycket! Historical miniatures are planned, but probably not for some years yet. Many areas left to sharpen before I want to tackle them. 28mm Caroleans is a must when that happens, though! As for detail, see below for overload.

@Scar: Thank you kindly, master painter! Takes Hat off

@Grimbold Blackhammer:  Thanks a lot!

@Ghrask Dragh: Thank you! Yes, the second pose (the unintentional one) works better. Glad to hear anyone of them works at all, though. I'm a bit out of my element when not sculpting bearded balls without knees.


Matron of Ancient Times

Dressed modestly in multi-layered fringed cloth draped diagonally around her pregnant body, this horned matron is no breaker of custom, as her decently chainmail-veiled face profess (bared flesh in public is the lot of concubines, temple harlots and women captured as war booty, and finally priestesses - held in awe - whose mysterious female powers are expressed through an assertive sensuality in their manners and appearance alike). Rings in the ears and around the fingers of the matron add a glitter to her rotund person, while a towering hat underscores her married status. Her prestigious position as a fertile mother is visible in the nine pteruges hanging from the backside of her hat, and indeed a similar triangular end decoration as on the family pteruges is strung on a necklace hanging from the throat of each of her children who has not yet passed into adulthood as per the ancestral rites. Note the childhood hat of her son, and the beard which is uncoiled since it is a privilege of adults only to curl their hair and whiskers.

The headgear of the matron is large, yet its form is different from male hats, and likewise unlike the masculine (and priestess) counterparts the feminine headgear is not proudly erect, standing straight up on the head, but is instead softer, backbending and receptive in shape. Her hat sports zigzag decor and pearlwork alike, and flanked by lightning bolts striking the ground rise a stylized palm ornament, in flames. This bears connotations of fertility, growth and plenty, but also of destruction, ashes and power.

The frontside of her hat is starkly adorned by a cracked skull, a constant reminder of both mortality, the work that needs to be done and the children that needs to be bred and raised. The cranial ornament upon the head of this lady is likewise a symbolic reminder for all men of the importance of defending one's tribe and precious womenfolk. It is also a mark of warning to any slave who would think of assaulting her. Behind the skull rise a a metal plate, inscribed with incantations, frequently replaced with different bronze plates bearing script as the seasonal ceremonies require. Above the runic plate sits the flat face of a potent demon of myth, bound to her will and facing the sky in order to ward off fell spirits and criminal hat-snatchers alike. The crenellated wall sitting above the demonic visage is not accidentally placed that way, for it is in fact an invocation in images for any assailant of the city walls to perish, a baleful curse upon both attackers outside the fortifications and revolting slaves within. The stretch of miniature walls and towers is likewise a proclamation of her kin's strength and endurance, as well as an announcement of the harshness needed for order to keep out chaos if civilized life is to survive.

And last but not least the crowning fortifications act as a reminder for all menfolk that should the towers be toppled and the walls fall like a downstruck hat, then their wives and concubines will become nothing but spoil for the conqueror, and their mothers and daughters will also be ravished, as is the way of mortals since time immemorial.

"You hit them hard over their heads like this, little Kralbuknezhur."

"Yes, ma'!"

Absolutely wonderful!

I can’t decide which of the two I like better, the Matron is incredibly elaborate and the bearding is an impressive piece all by himself - but I am a huge fan of the Admiralty Hobgoblins (they are so just so nasty looking!).
