There were some challenges with using Tamiya putty but I don't have any Green Stuff or Milliput, so the old adage "use what you have" applied. Apparently Sculpty is the latest rage? Anyway, apart from some experiments with Fimo in my youth, this is my first miniature sculpting experience.
I have altered and converted miniatures before and have often sculpted terrain elements onto bases. This is the first time I have made a miniature from scratch, beginning with a wire frame and sculpting everything from head to toe.
I used Tamiya Epoxy Putty. It is fairly sticky at first and drys quick. I find it easy to do hair with it and harder to do everything else. The sword was especially troublesome. Other areas came together surprisingly well.
I am pleased with the result. I wouldn't have thought about giving it a go if it weren't for Jason Fairclough and his Wasteman fantasy heartbreaker: Yeoman. Seeing his sculpts took me back to a time when Fighting Fantasy, Dungeons & Dragons and all manner of role-playing and war games inspired me to paint miniatures.
Thirty years on and it's still a fun hobby.
Sir Theobald is similar to the classic Citadel miniatures in my collection. He certainly has plenty of character. I enjoyed creating this knight immensely. So much so, that I am tempted to sculpt another one.
God's peace to you and may you have a blessed week.
