So the new Treeman Games Workshop came out a while ago is this tall and slim, almost demon looking thing that has form-fitting bark armor. The concept is cool and the mini is well sculpted, but I've always thought the Ents as trees and forest coming together to form only a somewhat humanoid looking thing. Like GW had at 5th edition Fantasy Battle.
So I thought I'd try to sculpt my own. I've had some practice with it, and the cool thing about this is that it's not human (so there's no uncanny valley effect), and bark is fun and easy to sculpt, and even if you don't get it fully right, the paint job will forgive a lot. If I ever get this in painting state.
|First I took some copper wire to get the skeleton, and posed it how I wanted.|
Then added some Fimo just to give it some bulk and rigidness.
|A bad picture of the right arm, which will be this huge stump to stomp trespassers with.|
This is the detail I will go over with Fimo alone. When I get the full body done I want to add some more detail with Green stuff and such.
