I’m still plugging away at the counts as Ratling Snipers squad for my Rebel Grots. I was out of town on business for most of last week so I haven’t made as much progress as I’d like but I’m happy with what I have managed. Three of the five are ready for paint.
- I sculpted new fingers and thumb on this guy’s left hand as well as a new thumb on his right hand. His left hand came out a little bigger than ideal. I think it would have been better just to sculpt an entire hand from scratch rather than working off an existing one. I think it will look pretty good once it’s painted even if it is a tad awkward. I like the overall pose.
- The next one received new fingers and thumb on his right hand. I had a much better fit with the base hand for this one so the sculpt was easier to pull off. I also cleaned up his left leg and the pictures show the cloak I talked about last week.
- The last one for today is the one that started as a second edition starter set gretchin. I added a cloak to give him a more elite look and blend the new head into the existing body.
That leaves me two more to finish. I hope to get them wrapped up in the next couple of days so I can move on to the tanks I need to wrap up this army. The week before the Standoff is going to be a frenzy of painting!
