Yup.  What Captainspud said.  Sorry.  There's definitely going to be casting involved in the annual competition; but I still have to think how to go about the competition itself, let alone the casting angle.

'Course, nothing to stop people doing what they like with their original designs, including selling or casting them.  Pretty much like any other 'hey look what I sculpted' topic here, only more... social.
Besides, I intend throwing all kinds of scales into this, beyond 28-35mm.  Wait until I start scheduling the 6mm sculptalongs. ;)

I like the idea of a sculptalong. It's good for amateurs to hone skills and get constructive feedback and also talk to others about how they did certain things with their sculpts that we'd like to give a go ourselves.
Sorry I haven't checked, but is there a tutorial section on this forum?

It would be nice to join in on a monthly sculptalong, sounds somewhat fun actually!

But i barely get enough time in to work on my own projects, what with life, work and family. So ultimately it's not something I could easily get into.

Barbarian will be finished tommorow I think! So, monster hunter next? Not exactly a strong archetype but I think I have an Idea up my sleeve.  ;)

... I'm going to take the sword off my barbarian and replace it with a spear. :P

If there are no strong objections to visigoths, they'll come up after monster hunters.  And someone give us a clue which Osprey book to go look at.

After that, futuristic gang members?  Pretty popular theme.

I might need a hand coming up with a short and snappy description of Visigoths. :P  I started reading the the wikipedia article and got lost in the early divisions of the Goths.  And I thought Tolkien's elf tribes were convoluted...

you do realise that my initial suggestion of Visigoths was laced with and exuberant amount of sarcasm?  :-\

I'm willing to change it though, 'cos it's difficult to find cheap or free references.

Argh.  It's thirty days hath September; April, June and November.  So much for the last-minute rush.

So it's dark age warriors now, anyway.  I've included the whole of Europe in the description: too loose, do you think?

Also, suggestions for September, plz. ;)

How about changing the tone for September!

Female Figure, sculpting the ladies can always be a challenge!

Lets us go to town with flowing dresses/robes.

Have fun with getting the nice soft curves just right etc.

Could specify:-

Non-combatant?

Human/Non-human?

54mm?
