If you remember these critters, I need not remind you what they are from, but for those of you unfamiliar with them let me give you heads up and some background.

Scant few images of this elusive line exist, so these are some of the best ones I could find, my apologies for posting them without proper attribution to the source, email me and I'll sort it!

These are Pure Evil Miniatures officially licensed Fighting Fantasy Miniatures. Back in the 80’s there existed a book series that ignited the imaginations of tons of young minds to the worlds of fantasy and adventure. These books were not just a story, it was an interactive foray into a dangerous realm where we were the hero, in which every choice we made changed the outcome, and for us 80’s fantasy kids, we were hooked.

The source of inspiration, The cover of Deathtrap Dungeon!

No idea if these are on general release yet, but I’d love one for my collection! If you can point me in the direction of getting one of these, let me know, and I’ll get one, put it together and stick some paint on it so you can see it in it’s glory!

My first attempt at sculpting an Oggam in 15mm, WIP

13 Oct

Ok, let me first say this. I have never sculpted anything in this scale. Yes, I have sculpted lots of bigger things, but never something this small. I know there is a few issues with this figure, but considering I haven’t done this before. I messed up with the legs, I should have done them first, and the hands lack finesse, but with a little bit more work it will probably be ok. Please feel free to leave any constructive criticism, tips or comments that you think would help. He’s about 15mm dead on, and I’ll do a size comparison later to show it next to another 15/18mm figure. Anyway here are the photos!

So, is it worth me carrying on with sculpting this size? One thing is for sure, I need to get some proper sculpting tools (I did this with a pin and a circle compass point!)
