Monique De Noir by The-Build Monique De Noir by The-Build
This was my version of a 54mm piece done by Reaper miniatures (and sculpted by the very talented Werner Klocke), you can see both concept work and the original 54 mm version in the links just below.

This was a very good piece to tinker with, main reason being that my version would be a caster's worst nightmare, there are just so many air spaces and gaps that it would be horrible to even attempt. (I've estimated at least 10 separate pieces for this to be cast)

Sculpted in green stuff, sword in milliput white.
Height 32mm

Might actually paint this one day...

Obviously and heavily IP protected, not for sale or any casting whatsoever, so please don't ask.

Monique De Noir by ~Backsackandjack Look at this again, folks...this highly detailed and exacting sculpture is only 32 mm in size--a bit more than one inch! Very cool miniature. ( Featured by LabyrinthCreations )

I was really quite happy with this one, one of the few pieces where most of it seemed to go the way I wanted it from the start.

I think I saw the final product site on these. They were having a kick starter. (which had gone waaaaay beyond the needed funding) for them.

I don't think it included this one, I got told it would be virtually impossible to cast.

I guess in some way that is a backhanded compliment. "Hey the work is great.. but it's too good for our techniques.

Not at all, I know exactly why and where it's too weak to hold up in metal casting, I actually sculpted in that way.

Well either way I really like the work you do. I wish I had the spare cash to lay down on that kick starter for miniatures. (not to mention the storage space.)

wow. I know couple of people who do this sort of work, so I have a fair idea just how much effort goes into getting that much detail in something of this size. Very very nicely done.

Damn, that has some insane detail. That would be almost impossible to make a mould for, but would go like hotcakes if someone did. I do realize it never will be, just saying. Awesome work, I like...

I think it would have to be in at least ten pieces to be cast and be a nightmare just to pin and glue the cast pieces.
