|Slàine Mac Roth.|

I find anything flat or straight is difficult to sculpt using Tamiya putty. To help keep his axe and sword in place I added some metal rods. The axe blade still required a few attempts. I can understand why maces and clubs are a popular choice for fantasy miniature sculptors!

|Third time lucky?|
|Room for another weapon?|
The axe turned out to be larger than expected but this is Slàine after all and I think it balances the figure well. Brainbiter certainly looks ready for action. Or as the Highlander himself might say "Kiss my axe!"
I have learnt it's better to focus on one thing at a time and not mix too much putty at once. Often I would squash detail with my fat fingers while working, so letting the putty set between sculpting sessions was also a good idea.
As this is my second sculpt, I am thinking about getting some putty more suited to fine detail. I need to track down some Sculpey or BeeSputty. Meanwhile, I may return to the painting table.
Lewis reckons I should make a whole party of miniatures. Perhaps I will have a posse for Wasteman: Yeoman before Christmas?
God bless you and have a great week.
