Attempt number two AOW



EDIT 3: Ok so I lied about edit 2 being the last one, so sue me. I've had to make a few major changes including the weapon ends (as you can see new ones are still WIPS) and I need to tidy the whole piece up a little.

The style I've used on the necklace is a new one, but it's growing on me, probably just need to practice a bit more.

EDIT 2: Last update before the finished piece with paint.

Just have weapon work and ornaments left to finish now, plus a couple of other bits and pieces, but it's pretty much there now.

EDIT: New photos for you and links below to more photos, going with a fist smashing rock which is why you have those bizarre chunks, at the moment they're just there to add thickness and shape to the next layer.


So as you may or may not have seen the large Lizardman I sculpted for Avatars of war turned out to be too large for the range.

Although it's annoying when things like these happen, it's primarily my fault for getting carried away and adopting the Pete Jackson mantra of "make it bigger".

Never one to get too knocked down and perhaps too special enough to admit defeat, I've already begun on a replacement, definitely smaller and with much longer arms.

I've been drawing on the work of Allan Carassco (hideously talented miniature sculptor) and so have come up with a design for a great weapon wielding monster of a lizard. You can't see it yet but I'm also drawing on real life lizards and so this one will be using a lot of inspiration taking from the thorny devil and so covered in a large amount of spikes and scales, though I'm determined to add some variety to make this one stand out from all previous lizard sculpts.

More to come soon.

Sculpted with kneadatite, wire and patience.

Marvellous work as ever, Richard. Are you into drawing/painting art as well by any chance?

Besides, have you ever heard of Warhammer Fantasy's spiritual successor?
