More Spinespur

Well, here is that sicko clown I was referring to....with leather thong and honkable nose...I sculpted some hair on him to give him a more bozo-esque look. I kinda like the look of the Whiskey bottle, but my favorite touch is the smiley face knee pads...The right one got a little homage to the Watchmen.

Sounds like GENCON is a go, for sure. I've got the time off work and I have booked a room. I was mentioning this all to my brother, Mike, and he sounded rather interested. So I suggested he come along, which he agreed. I wasn't relishing the idea of going alone, but now with him tagging along, I'm pretty stoked about the whole thing.

Not sure what I will work on next. Maybe just take a break for a while.

Something other than Alpha Forge

Don't get me wrong, I really dig Alpha Forge minis, but I felt like painting something different for a change. I had just picked up a bunch of these SPINESPUR miniatures recently. They are a bit demented (chainsaw wielding maniac, clown faced thong wearing brutalists, but it makes for fun painting.

Here is HACK, the first I have painted up.

I placed him on a base made by King and Kerr.
A UK based company that makes some pretty cool resin scenery. The pic is clickable to make it bigger. I also have a Pig mask wearing butcher and the above mention Clown Sadist that I am working on. Like I said, demented stuff.

Also, I plan on attending GENCON
Which, from what I understand is the countries biggest 'gaming' convention. The folks from WYRD Minatures and Alpha Forge, among many others, should be there, so it will be nice to put faces to online pseudonyms.

Painting a few.

Here's a few zombified crew members and a 'death mask'...which is the item that reanimates the fallen crew members. These are being sent out to Alpha Forge, I've got a variety of things to paint up next....I'll just choose whatever strikes my interest the most.

More sculptin'

Well, just like all my projects, I start with a ton of enthusiasm, but as the ugly truth becomes revealed, I quickly sour on it.

I think I'll plod through just for the practice, however.
I'm not sure what to make of the guy...I kind of like it, but also kind of cringe because parts are so bad....Well, no harm in keeping at it!

Happy Independence Day!

Hi there everyone! Here is my 'sculpt' I've been working's shaping up more now, and doesn't look so x-rated any longer. The pic is clickable for a better look-see.

The metal armature arms and neck, are much longer than necessary, but I'll cut those off as I go. Better too long than too short! This creature I am working on is meant to be very bulky, and hunched over, much like the guy with the green sword and purple skin from my earlier posts...only bigger and beefier!

I'm also working on some more ALPHA FORGE stuff...always my favorite! No pics though, since I'm inherently lazy.
