More Sculpting.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.

This week has been a good one. Work has been great, sometimes challenging, but definitely a case of when the going gets tough, the team pulls together... and team-work, makes the dream work!

Speaking of team-work, last night a large clump of my work mates gathered in my local last night and we all had a blast together. I got to introduce my wife to my friends and even threw a few shapes on the dance floor... a cracking night was had by all!

I have had my son and his girlfriend visiting this week as well and we have been enjoying a few quality days together. He is in good spirits and it is always nice to see him.

I have had notification that a Kickstarter pledge is in the delivery pipeline so it looks like I'll be getting some troops to chop up pretty soon. Which ones? These ones:

I have pledged for the Northmen and will have about 42 infantry to turn into men-at-arms for my Primaris Knights:

There will be lots more information, once I have recieved the pledge and started conversion work. 

Speaking of conversion work, The Beastman Jedi has had a small amount of work done... but not enough for me to show off. He now has a right arm and the start of a lightsaber so things are moving forward.

Sculpting has been my main priority, this week and as a result, I have finished the second of my competition sculpts:

I think he turned out quite well and scales up with the Sgt quite nicely:

I have started to bulk out another armature, in a bid to get another basic trooper sculpted. I am thinking of sculpting a few basic troopers, a comms specialist and maybe a few special weapons troopers (Melta, Plasma and Grenade Launcher). That way, there will be enough to build a veteran unit. It's early days but while I am enjoying sculpting, I may as well take advantage of it.

Speaking of sculpting, I have got embroiled in another competition which is all about alien creatures. I need to convert an alien creature, paint it up and put together a bit of fluff to go with it. I knew what I wanted to do so I have been sculpting a successor to this one (that I sold off a long time ago):

The one pictured was a "three-eyed, moustachioed, hairy, groper" but the one I am working on is going to be called "the Catachan, moustachioed, hairy, groper". It's another full sculpt that will be a one-off (I have to paint it) and it will be markedly different to the one pictured above... so watch this space for an image or two, next time I post.

Well... that's about it for now. 

See you from the sculpting bench!
