Horses and more!

 Hi you all!

I have finally finished the horses for the Plains Indians, after much struggling. 

It has taken me some years to make them, as I find horse anatomy a bit imposing and got mentally blocked a couple of times. I'm very happy that this year I managed to overcome all those hurdles and, in fact, it took me only a couple weeks time to finish them (given that I had already made the torsos (is that the word for animals too??) and parts of a pair of legs previously.

Anyway, I'm happy they are finally ready, as that wasn't only a big challenge for me, but also because it enables me to begin sculpting the mounted versions of the minis I have already made. I can't wait!

Besides, I have been working on some more Cheyenne, which I'll show you next time. Here are some WIP images. This time I didn't want to use armatures, as I wanted to improve my sculpting a bit making them completely from scratch.

Some more warriors with guns

 Hi you all!

I haven't updated the blog in a while and, in fact, I wasn't able to sculpt for some time. Several months ago I got back on track and I have been sculpting some figures

These are "generic" warriors (they could be used as Teton Sioux, Cheyenne, Arapaho and others) with more modern guns that could be used in the 60`s and 70`s (including Little Big Horn). Guns are a two Spencer carbines, a Henry repeating rifle and a Colt. Some of the warriors wear trade shirts, which are very typical in latter periods. I'll probably end up making a set like this for every tribe I have sculpted so far

I hope you like them!
