Sculpting a Venator Head

Humans, Sculpting, Warhammer 40K

Things have been quiet on this blog of late, but rest assured valued reader for my time has been spent in worthwhile figure related endeavors.  I have been working on a couple of things at once (in my usual ADHD fashion) as enthusiasm grips me.  At least some of these projects will come to fruition in the coming weeks, I swear. 😉

This is a series of shots I have been taking over the last week of a head sculpt I am working on for Asslessman, a chap who frequents the Oldhammer Forum.  He mentioned that he was looking to get some suitable heads to create a Venator gang for Necromunda – Venators are basically bounty hunters.  This is a perfect project for a budding sculptor as it is small, self contained in scope, and it’s relatively easy to sculpt due to the caricature nature of the subject matter.

A fair bit done and a fair bit more to go!
