  1. Wow! That would be crazy, I'd need a bigger house for that!
  2. Thanks Steve! Oh man that would be cool, but don't get me started or I'll end up making a large version of the whole range! Thanks Yg, I guess I always have a bigger is better attitude with sculpting. Though the next one I'm doing will be 1/12 so much smaller. Cheers voozet, appreciate the interest Yes I think so, had do do a bit of careful rearranging just to fit this one in! Thank you for the kind words John, I really enjoy sculpting so appreciate it Cheers Pete! Yeah I try not to get too close and don't take my eyes off him when I do!
  3. Thank you! Really appreciate it I've made up my mind and next up will be a 1/12 motorbike I'm modding into a jet bike with a punk girl android rider I'll sculpt myself Got a house full of covid, flu and infections at the minute once it's a healthy house and I'm back in the land of the living I'll make a new topic and get cracking with it
  4. Right he is now DONE! Got him all glued together with some epoxy glue IMG_20220929_170410797 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I've taken the final pics and posted them in the RFI I'll be back with my next project very soon, really appreciate the interest in this and the comments. Thanks for looking, more soon
  5. My latest sculpture is complete! I started this because I really liked the idea of turning something that is very small like a games workshop table top figure in a massive sculpture, I'm not very knowlegeable about it but I've always been a fan of the T'au. Very happy with how he turned out, originaly it was going to be 1/6 but after making the head a bit bigger then I realised it was actually closer to 1/5. Now he's done from the bottom of the base to the tip of his rifle is 52cm! I sculpted him in 3 parts due to his size so I could fit him in the oven to cure, I started with his head then made seperate armatures for his legs and then upper body which was glued together after he was painted. He was sculpted in sculpey firm except for the the shield and gun which were made with styrene and foam board. Just to gove a sense of scale I included a mug in the first pic and left my hand in one of them. Heres a link to the wip: - And here are the pics IMG_20221003_123900801 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_123935735 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_123945753 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124022518 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124049206 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124125089 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124133787 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124148739 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124250074 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124301706 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124332659 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124352007 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124557865 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124607273 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124624330 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124647881 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124732997 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124741961 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124754428 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124813194 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_124948338 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_125028381 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_125114658 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20221003_125153859 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And it now has pride of place in my cabinet IMG_20221003_131821471 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Thank you to everyone who commented in the wip and showed an interest, I always really appreciate it and it makes a build more fun. I've got a few project ideas so I'll be back on to the new build once I've decided what to do next. Thanks for looking, more soon
  6. Wow, that's a heck of an update! Really like the mottled colour of the mech, and the base and details for it are amazing, love the ducting!
  7. Really like the base and that's a great weathered finish on the AT-ST, looks like it's been wandering for a while
  8. That looks great! Love all the details and the retro look
  9. Looks great Pete that base is looking very "star wars" especially with some paint on, looking forward to the camo but I dont envy the fiddly masking!
  10. Right time for that update! I removed the masking tape from the base and used some black paint to touch up the edges here and there, and then it was time to crack out the pigments. I used some mig graveyard dirt to add shadowing to the rocks and around his feet and then various rust shades to add more colour and variation to the dry dirt and I used africa dust to add a dusty finish to his feet. IMG_20220917_120453635 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220917_120505521 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220917_120512853 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220917_120519504 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then I wanted to add a couple of small areas of grass just as an extra little detail. For grass I use a jute twine technique that I've used on a couple of my past dioramas including my first ever: - Basically you get yourself a bit of garden twine (mine is dry grass so I'm sticking with the beige colour, if I wanted a green I leave it soaking over night in some cheap green acrylic paint diluted with water to dye it) IMG_20220918_143709514 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220918_143756462 by Nick Frost, on Flickr The using a wire brush you brush down the length of it then grab some individual strands and keep brushing until you've got a lot built up on the brush, then you take it off and you have a tangle of the fibres ready to become a clump of grass. IMG_20220918_144415166 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220918_144519190 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I take the fibres off the brush and roll them up and then cut the bundle in half giving me two clumps of grass with very random height fibres which looks quite natural. Each bit gets dipped in white glue then pressed into place IMG_20220918_144147310 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220918_145608929 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Once its down I use a cocktail stick to sperate the bottom a bit so it doesn't look like a bad hairplug IMG_20220918_144819719 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220918_150151606 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220918_150157801 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Then once its dry I again use the cocktail stick just to help spread and shape it further. IMG_20220919_120007025 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20220919_120017941 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And THAT is where I'm leaving it, I'm happy with the base as is so the next update will be just to show him glued together and a link to the RF!I Thanks for looking, more soon
  11. Great work on that tank, it definitely is a really good addition to the base
  12. Just getting better and better Pete, love all the details on the base!
  13. Yeah I like Petes suggestions, and a silver retro suit to go with it would be cool! And that backpack is very nice
