28mm - What am I thinking?
After frustrating myself with trying to sculpt in 54mm, I've decided to attempt 28 mm pieces as well. I just want to say to all of you out there who do 28mm sculpts - y'all are crazy. It has made me appreciate what a grand and vast canvass a 54mm figure is. The photo below shows the French knights I've been working on, but the cork and sculpy dolly for the 28mm figure is in the foreground. This gives you a good scale comparison. The head was actually done in epoxy putty, the body is sculpy. I've got a feeling this will be a waste of time. The good thing about 28mm is that its hardly a waste of putty - the figure is so tiny (yes, I know, there are even smaller scales of miniatures out there.)
