July-August 2012 Sculptalong - Make Mine Marvel
« on: July 01, 2012, 04:31:03 PM BST GMT »
The Incredible Hulk was fifty years old in May.  Spider-Man is fifty in August.  As good a reason as any to take in some character studies for this sculptalong!  The theme is those two characters, and - for a little leeway - their friends, allies, and rogues galleries.  If you're unfamiliar with any or all of those characters, or stuck for inspiration, their wikipedia pages have plenty of information and further links.

Spider-Man
Incredible Hulk

The scale will be the old faithful 28mm, but I'll also include 54mm this time.  I think the larger size might be better suited for more characterful sculpts, and reproduction of famous or favourite art (or even screen representations).  But I hope most of you are inspired to take part, whichever scale you choose. :)

The sculptalong will run until the 31st of August.  Afterwards, any participating sculpts will be voted on for bragging rights!  As usual the basic rules apply.

Let's not do the whole weird-monster-genitals thing again.  It didn't go well last time.

Vermis, he said "tentacles", not the other one!

Weird monster genitals thing?! Sounds most unsavoury... ;-)

No, nothing important or extraordinary it's just for the companies to announce when their minis are released ;)
