I haven’t done much painting or sculpting since Christmas. But I decided to get back to the workbench and complete a few projects. Spring is so rainy and cold this year, it is a perfect time for model building 🙂
In this post, you will find photos of my (now) completed sci-fi crates.
A bunch of sci-fi crates ready for the gaming table.
Vasquez: “Look, man. I only need to know one thing: where they are.”
Well, they are here!!! This is my attempt at sculpting a decent Alien egg and a scary facehugger for the gaming table.
Needless to say, these will get replicated >> evil grin <<
Quick update: I made moulds for my scratch build crates. I casted many copies both in resin and in plaster (a special plaster named ‘Dry-Stone’, which is a lot stronger than standard plaster). So far, I am pleased with the resulting pieces, although I have difficulties casting anything without air bubbles imperfections. That’s not a huge problem: I will try to retouch the crates a bit using epoxy putty (for the resin ones) or wall filler (for the plaster ones).
Happy new year world!
I have been very quiet lately on my blog. Work, work work. But I have made some things in the past few weeks. And I will share all of it on this blog (lucky you!) 🙂
So the new year starts with… sci-fi crates. We are planing to test drive Savage Worlds RPG with an Aliens themed gaming session and I needed some props. To be honest, I didn’t but I always wanted to do some custom Aliens Colonial Marines stuff in 28mm.
Nothing fancy: plasticard + pieces from different scale models from my bitz box(es).
I am planning to cast these in resin, so stay tuned!
I am also working on Aliens eggs and face hugger…
Ok. Something very different this time. I decided to finish a model that a friend gave me a few… hum… years ago: a 1/144 Narcissus spaceship from the original Alien movie, a model sold by Alcyon eons ago.
