... finally from scratch, truly from the beginning. To get the proportions somewhat okay, I have been cheating by copying a civilian Arab from Perry Brothers. His head will be slightly smaller than the model I am sort-of copying to fit better in with the LotR-range.
Also, if you like the Hobbit dwarves, read this from thefellowshipoftheminiatures.blogspot: I asked [the Perry brothers] about the Hobbit range and the battle of the five armies
and they told me that they sculpted a whole dwarf range. So the
miniatures exist, but will GW ever release them?
Sunken chest... I noticed it just now, when looking at these pictures. Perhaps I will fix it, maybe not...
What do I spy in the background with my little eye? Something suitably tree-like, almost like a Christmas ent? One can never be sure, in times like these...
No, it is not the right head. I feel it is a bit too "cartoony"... hmmm... if I were to remove the buck teeth, the potato nose, and perhaps resculpt the jawline and perhaps add some sort of beard, hair and then remove the whole head and make a real one? (yes, this is a head I made "jokingly")
Short one today, I am off to a late boardgame night.
