Sculpting Fantasy Miniatures + Hobbit Burglar

The Hobbit 
Here is my ninth sculpt. I was a fan of listening to the radio as a child (in the 70s and 80s), though not only for the music. Radio introduced me to the Sci-fi and Fantasy worlds of Flash Gordon and The Hobbit. Bilbo seemed like the better hero of the two - he also had a ring of invisibility!

I have found sculpting to be highly enjoyable. It is a different discipline to painting. As a new aspect to my gaming hobby I'm curious as to whether others may enjoy these miniatures also? Casting miniatures is costly though. Perhaps a Kickstarter?

If you're interested in any of the miniatures (check this blog for them all) or have some ideas about production, please leave me a comment.















God bless you and have an awesome week.

  1. Very impressive. I especially like all the accoutrements hanging from Bilbo's person.

    1. Thank you Michael. Sacks are easy, bags slightly more difficult but the chain was a surprise.

    1. You won't know until you try. I've been amazed at how good the proportions are. I attribute this to thirty odd years of painting miniatures.

  3. Great model. I like that this fella looks slightly dangerous even though he's only 3.5 foot tall...

  4. Mystic Spirals did some limited runs of figures when he started sculpting-you could ask him about the experience.
