Thread: Warploque's Sculpting Blog

  1. #81
    Hey guys!

    Wow... I can't beleive it's been almost 2 weeks since I last posted... sorry about that! I've spent these last few days working on finishing my Art Project - "The Art of Arcworlde", and now it's done - Hurrah! After I finished that on Monday, I've been working on some models for a client who didn't want them to be shown, and then I ran out of greenstuff :( Boo Hoo!

    Orki - I'm glad you like him mate, because I may end up asking you to paint him! :P

    Vern - Thanks man! :D

    Ulfgrimr - And thats the whole point of the detachable beard! :P

    Anyway folks, on to the miniatures!

    First up the Cocklegriff is going to be cast! :D Although it didnt reach enough Pre-Orders for the Halfling General to be sculpted, it has done pretty well! Thankyou to everyone who supported me!

    It has been an aim of mine for the past year or so since starting Warploque Miniatures that I needed to do some more Trolls. Those guys were the first ever models I cast for my webshop, and have been ( other than the Halflings) my most popular models!

    The thing is - what could I do with them? Of course there are lots of other Troll Species in Arcworlde, ranging from Desert Trolls, Jungle Trolls and even Sea Trolls, but they are all projects for the future. For the first few years at least I want to concentrate on the armies and beasts of the "Europe" area of ArcWorlde, and then expand into the other territories as time progresses. Just sculpting alt poses of the existing trolls is borrrrringgg, and will be saved for when I REALLY haveto scrape the barrel!

    But then I had a thought - when playing ArcWorlde you will have the option of playing as the wild beasts that roam the land, either on their own, or in packs of their own kind. As trolls are based on large apes, most of the hunting will be done by males, but what is to stop the females from charging into battle?

    To my knowledge, there are hardly ANY female troll models out there, the only one I am aware of are the ones that Ed Fortae did for Troll Forged (and lovely models they are too). The plan is to sculpt a lady troll, or a Trollwife, that is of a generic species, rather than specialising them, so that they can be diferentiated by the paintjob. Accompanying them will be "Trollbairns" - young trolls the size of Bayourks that will accompany their mother and fight alongside her.

    ANyway, enough waffle, here is the first WIP! -

    As well as this, something else I have been working on - a few "sneak peaks" ;) -

    On a different note, the latest version of the ArcWorlde PDF rulebook has been completed! If there is anyone who would be willing to take a look and give me some feedback, or even play a few test games, then please let me know! Everyone who comes back to me with a detailed "report" will have their names mentioned in the "credits"! :P

    Thanks guys! Sorry again for being so silent, things should be back to normal again now... Until I go on holiday in 2 weeks time that is! :P

    The Trollwife and Trollbairns sound interesting concepts, looking forward to seeing them completed.

    Ulfgrimr - Thanks mate - I hope they work out ok too! :P

    Anyway folks, a quick update!

    Because I'm off on Holiday a week on thursday ( Off to Florida, USA - Whoo!), I decided that, for this month's releases, I would get a few of my older models cast (hopefully) for the Swords for Hire army -

    The Rogue Knight -

    The Wild Elven Druidess ( need to think of a better name) -

    and the Sect of Canis Cultist -

    To complete the gang, and on a whim, I thought I would add a fourth member -

    I introduce to you (WIP), Bibbington "The Sorceror" Bells -a dealer in magic and spells! (And anyone who gets the reference wins a cookie!)

    Essentially he is a "Wizard for Hire" - more often seen frequenting village fates and entertaining the drinking houses across Hobbleshire, he is more powerful than he lets on...

    Not sure what to do his hands, either bare with a "SHAZZAM!" pose, or waving a wand... what do you think?

    Cheers guys!

    Isnt there alot of classic magician moves?

    Like interlocked rings? Wand sounds a bit plain, maybe if it's spiced up a bit it can work.

    Or he can hold a deck of cards in one hand and in the other a single card between his finger like he's doing "Is this your card mrs?" thingy.

    Or.. the shazzam is fine too. ^^

    Wouldn't be a Gilbert & Sullivan reference perchance? Don't know if the 'Shazzam' pose would work with his character, how about a teapot and wand? or what about a labelled bottle and wand?.

    The whole group are Great, been waiting for the Rogue Knight. will these be available from the WaMP store?

    I'll be ordering the Rogue Knight .... I think either a 'shazzam' pose, or wand would work for the wizard (or maybe even a teapot )

    Hey guys!

    And Ulfgrimnr wins the Cookie! :D It is indeed a Gilbert and Sullivan reference, and you are the only person to guess - well done! I decided to go with a wand in the end - a bit more versatile for people I think :) He, and my other Pre-Orders, will only be available from Warploque Miniatures!

    Once again guys, sorry for the lack of contact recently :/ I've just been getting my college work out of the way, and now that the final Exhibition is up, it's time to get back to normal! :D Hopefully this, rather large update, should rectify my sin of silence :P

    Here is a crappy picture of my corner of the exhibition... the Art of ArcWorlde!

    On that plinth is every model I have painted for Warploque Miniatures - almost my whole range! Hopefully none of the models will get knicked...

    Because I was sick of painting Halflings, I decided to try out my paint scheme for the Albionnicans - what do you think?

    Also, my latest sculpting project, an Albionnican Engineer! (WIP) -

    These guys go to battle with the troops, seeing to the warmachines and fixing, or even customising, the weapons of their comrades. The contraption that this guy is holding ( havn't got a name for him yet) is a "Steam Rifle" - a lead bullet is fired by the huge built up pressures of superheated steam. This is cutting-edge technology, still in it's testing phases, and are usually custom built for use by the engineers alone. A larger version of this, the "Steam Cannon" will provide the artillery and long rage support for the Albionnicans, and will probably end up blowing up alot of the time :P

    The little critter on his shoulder is a Griffling -

    - a cross between a housecat and a pigeon, and are used to send messages during battle, or even used as flying scouts ( yes, you will be able to buy units of these guys when playing ArcWorlde :P )

    Anyway, as well as these, I have some models up for PRE ORDER!

    As I said before, seeing as I havn't really had much personal sculpting time this month, I've decided to release some older models -

    For Pre-Order, we have -

    Jacques D'Urisine - Rogue Gallican Knight


    Wild Elven Fell Druidess


    Bibbington "The Sorceror" Bells


    And last but not least... the dreaded Barrow Wight


    What do you think chaps?

    You will have 3 weeks to Pre-Order these, so your last chance to grab one will be the
    15th of July 2012

    As with the Cocklegriff, if you place an order for this model, the money will be instantly widthdrawn from your PayPal account, as if you have made a normal purchase. Once an order has been made, you will be updated regularly on the progress of the casting, and then notified when the model has been sent to you. If 15 orders have not been made by the 15th of July 2012, then the model will not be cast and all monies paid will be refunded - it's as simple as that!

    Thanks guys, I hope you enjoy these!

    Hope your exhibition has been well received and I like how the engineer is coming along. As for your other figures an order shall probably be placed in the next few days .

    Hey guys!

    Thanks for your comments - I was planning to write a normal post, replying to comments and posting up pictures and whatnot, but it turns out I really don't have time!

    Just a quick message to say that I'll be on holiday in Florida for the next two weeks and a bit, so won't be able to post updates, reply to emails, or ship miniatures for at least that amount of time!

    See you all in a fortnight! :D
