Hey all,

So its time for the next prisoner exchange! I need to start thinking and converting. Last year's event really helped me to better explore my skills, and so I want to build on that. Perhaps even do a little more greenstuff sculpting? 

Let's see where it leads!

Greenstuff is for winners! Plus, the more you practice the better you get.

Any ideas on the subject?

I'm thinking an imperial officer. Specifically, a hero, striding forward, sword outstretched, fearless, brave, looking like he's just stepped off the pages of an Imperial propaganda poster.Charm? He has it. Wit? Of course. Boldness? In buckets. An individual who inspires and encourages. And of course, will probably be the first to be shot and captured...

I've made a beginning on the model, so will try to get some pics up this evening.

Hey all, 

Sorry for the delay in getting the pics up last night - as is the way, I didn't get chance to grab the iphone. But I have had chance this afternoon! I'm taking up an idea that Narcissus suggested about just using whats already in your bits box. So heres the (very rough) start of my prisoner. I'm thinking of possibly making him an astropath...I don't know yet. What I am hooked on is the idea of an action shot. For those wondering, I used the legs from a DV cultist, the torso from an Empire spearman, the arm from a cadian and the back icon from the SM command squad.





So yeah, let me know what you think!

A cool start Matt. Nice mix of bits (quite a bit of greenstuff work to do!). I like the propaganda poster boy idea.

Cheers Laney Very Happy

Thanks all! Yeah, I know there needs to be quite a bit of greenstuff work doing, but isn't that what the prisoner exchange is about? Pushing yourself, so that you move out of your comfort zone and try new things.

Just a quick note - I've not forgotten this project, but Real Life has swerved into the way. I will resume this hopefully within the next week or two. 

Sorry for the lack of updates, but watch this space! I will make the deadline!

Hey all, 

I'm really sorry, but I'm going to have to pull out of this - theres no way I'm currently able to give the prisoner the attention it deserves, nor do I want to send someone something I'm not proud of. So please accept my apologies for this.
