The Others: Pestilence

Here is the last of the three I did for the expansion, Pestilence. Not much to say about this guy as he was pretty straight forward for me to do. Hope it does Mr. Smiths art justice.

The Others: Death

Death was the second of the Four Horseman I got to do and I was dreading it, it's those wings. Feathers. Not a strong point of mine. When doing big figures like this the limbs can end up being like sculpting an entire figure in itself and the wings were pretty involved for me. Mostly because the art depicts them as moldering and sickly and I found out that to get that drooping and filthy look I was pushing dangerously close into hair technique territory and I began to worry that it was looking more like he had hairy wings rather then feathered. Hopefully he looks good to you all. And hey, look! It's those skulls again!

The Others: War

I got to be involved with the expansion for this game and got to do three of the main big monsters for this project. The first was War and here are the pics of the original. The ammo belts ended up being pulled tight into the body to help with casting and the gun gauntlet had to have a lot of back-fill under the barrels and turned into a separate part to help with the molding process. No back detail had been given so as per norm I got to add my own touch to the figure, I included an ominous cylinder sprouting from between his shoulder blades that has a radioactive insignia on it. I kind of figured War to be nuclear capable.
I'm including Adrian's art so you can see how well or poorly I kept to the art, hope you enjoy.
