Darn it! Why do people keep bringing the awesome when I'm even broker than the rest of the economy?  :blub: Looks great though.

I know soaking an old lead mini in Dettol will soften both Milliput and Araldite.

Yup, sure, as long as you don't mind me using a similar puppet in my shows :)

Hi Inso,
Commission puppets have relegated all of my fun puppets to the backburner for the moment but dinosaurs are on the cards in a few months hopefully. I was planning on building a kids show around them so there will definitely be a 'raptor. The method I use involves mould making and press casting from my original sculpt so I could certainly knock out one for you fairly easily once I get around to it.
This is my website.
My business Facebook page tends to be updated more frequently.
Or you can look at my devaintART gallery which has more WIPs and bits and pieces on it.
As for prices it depends on complexity, materials and speed but if you're willing to wait for me to finish my own 'raptor I won't be making a new mould or sculpting anything new for the project, it'll purely be materials and time cost for the puppet itself, which will be around 70-100 depending on how big I make it in the end.

Awesome looking stuff again. And skeksiness is all to the good as far as I am concerned.

I ran the British TD line up to the Tortoise. Talk about frustratingly slow but the hit pool, armour and gun are nice :)

I'm all in favour of this idea! I would also be very much in favour of Kev doing a Kindred pilot :)

Bearings were from ebay, small ring magnets I had to buy from the US of all places as I couldn't find any in the UK either! Place called k&j magnetics, they also sell the bearings, if you're ordering anyhow

Uk magnet supplier.

Use these guys a lot, excellent speedy service


Although the physics pedant in me does need to point out that banking, diving, rolling etc are manoeuvres that only take place in an atmosphere in a craft which is using said atmosphere to generate lift...

First4magnets is where I get all my magnets for puppet-making from. They're really good.

As most of you know I'm an unashamed Kindred fan and I do bother Kev periodically for more. I have a myriad of ideas for conversions I've never done (I want wolfhound riders  :D )and I looked for a long time for some heavy support for them that has a sort of Kindred feel and mostly failed. But today I came across the Ramshackle kickstarter for their new Battle Dog and Pug and they have something of the sci-fi retro WW1 mix feel to them so I thought I'd share for any other Kindred-botherers. Enjoy:

Lovely paintwork. It's running to dwartist levels of naturalism and subtlety, something I like more than some of the over-popped minis I see scoring highly on CMON.
I agree with Brandlin's assessment about sparseness but I think it needs more things rather than closer combatants. This may be my work as a puppeteer but positioning, space and eyeline are vital in that and the spacing feels good to me in this. I'd add a little more in the way of scenery interest and perhaps remove that outer course of flags all the way around the base to make the base smaller, making things more claustraphobic without damaging those eyelines.

Pretty much what I thought when I saw the space bear pose. I'd have been tempted with a few more modifications. Which I'll explain at a point when they'll be spoiler-free :)

Think the left lower extremity needs less lift TBH and a touch more on the right.


Everyone's a critic!

Not so much a critique as an acknowledgement that I have a particularly evil and naughty brain :)

This hasn't got long to go, if anyone's interested.

I've met him! He's a friend of a friend. Chatted to him last New Year about using his laser cutter for puppet making and stuff. Although the friend he's friends with also has a stack of laser cutters and has offered me use of them.

I like Dekthor's suggestion because it would be fun and original but it also tweaked a little positive crossover alert in my head. I've noticed from a lot of my roleplaying friends that 5th Ed Shadowrun is pretty popular at the moment. Based in Seattle initially, it has a lot of reference to shamanism and Pacific First Nations stuff. The stylised "S" Shadowrun logo is based in Pacific First Nations stuff. But just generally, Pacific First Nations art is beautiful and a really strong design that I think would work well on minis.  Back in the day, before I got a bit sick of GW, I was toying with a Pacific First Nations Imperial Guard army, just to use the wonderful art style.
