  • Kingdom Death: Survivors

    To fill the time waiting for Kingdom Death: Monster I hope to sculpt some survivor miniatures to game with. I'm hoping that (as I don't currently have any "gaming buddies") that this will encourage my gf, her sister and her bf to join the fun. If personalised survivors don't seal the deal then I don't know what will!

    I've made some quick biro sketches for fun. Introducing:

    Survivor Paul:



    Survivor Jaxx:



    Survivor Lou:



    Survivor Peter:



    I already have some armatures built that could be of use. Having said that don't expect progress to soon, after all I have about 11 months to complete this project

    Nice concepts, they don't look very KD-esque, but I guess that's the point! I like how you incorporated the stone face shards and lanterns though. Looking forward to progress!

      Cheers! Have no idea how the final pieces will turn out. Not yet decided if I'll add more KD elements or just keep them to a likeness (in as loose a way as possible!) of the intended person. I would consider turning my gf into a KD pinup but: #1 it'd be garbage and #2 she would kill me!

        The more I sculpt the more I realise the need to work on my understanding of (and ability to sculpt) anatomy. With that in mind I have started work on a 1/45 scale male practice sculpt. His outstretched right arm will be holding a lantern. I am working from a pose in one of the Art Models book. The original model is wielding a sword.

          Update on my 38mm male and the armature prepared for a female at the same scale (1/45).

              Thank you! It's good fun so far and proving the crash course in anatomy that I need...

              Got word from a man in the know that KD humans are 35-36mm to the eyes.

              Made a start on Survivor: Peter.



              The scale is 35mm to the eyes. The pose is a mirror image of the 1/45 scale male sculpt seen above. His left arm will be holding a shield, possibly made from stone faces, and he will be heavily armoured. To keep with the likeness of his namesake, this survivor will be wearing glasses and Batman trainers!

              The arms will be posed at a later stage.

              I am very much enjoying the GS/MS mix :-)

                  Further progress on the Survivor: Peter sculpt.

                  On this mini' I'm trying out the method utilised by JAG and Thomas David (amongst others) of working from the inside out. This morning I roughed out the form of the body. I wasn't too worried about perfect smoothness as all surfaces will be covered anyway when I "dress" the torso. If anything a rough surface should help the subsequent layers of putty to adhere.



                  This afternoon I attempted armour on the lower legs, using a 50:50 mix of GS & Procreate. Overall I'm happy enough with the end result. I had to go out but could have done with leaving it a further hour and refining even more once firmer.



                  The next step will probably include the thighs and chest. His left arm will be holding a shield, possibly constructed from stone faces.

                      Thanks!

                      Work on the upper legs:



                      Practicing some dreaded drapery, based loosely upon the spider silk armour (baginess semi-intended). Most of it should be covered with armour plates and accessories anyway. The knee pads will be sculpted once set.

                      As with the majority of my sculpts this one is a bit chunky. Something to keep working on I think...

                        Forearm armour, lantern base, knee caps and face shaping from 50/50 GS/MS. More refing to do over the coming hour. Think I pay prefer the Procreate/GS mix over MS/GS for armour...

                            looking great. on the left leg theres a big crease near the apex of the leg. I would be inclined to flatten that crease down as I dot think it would fall there naturally. Good stuff though will watch the progress for sure

                              Thanks Normski! In fact I did perform a Google image search for MC Hammer for drapery reference! I was sadly quite disappointed with the results so carried on referring to the Spider Silk armour WIPs (and winging it!).

                              Thanks for the feedback Darklord. Drapery is indeed a weak point of mine and something I need to continue to research and indeed practice. I kept telling myself with this sculpt that most of the trouser area will be obscured by accessories and armour plates, so a bit of a cop-out on my part really!
