    • Sorry for the late response. I meant to write something at length and it (like many things these days) just skipped my mind.

      I almost always start with 2D artwork and then attempt to capture something of that in the model. It gives you an end goal and a point to work towards, rather than just a vague idea. In a way it removes the tough part of the creative process and allows you to focus on the crafting.

      As for the Eldar Avatars, the most noticeable problem is the massive head, or more importantly the face. Finding a way to transplant another smaller but suitable face onto the model would be my suggestion (perhaps the one from the dark elf blood cauldron khaine). Other than that, cutting up the limbs at the joints and re-pinning into a slightly more interesting pose would be my second thought.

        thanks so much for the reply that has give me something to work on, hopefully al try to draw up some ideas. Am fairly casual to warhammer (ie. I don’t play it or read about it) just like painting and modeling, so the suggestion of the dark elf blood cauldron khai e is great. I was thinking kkng about just re-pinning but wanted more then that gunna Google load of images and start there with drawing up a design. if I can post the image any advice would be great.

        all best again

    is this for sale or a commission? It’s awesome. I would buy it, or buy one from you mate.

    • Unfortunately it’s a one off done as a commission.

        Ah that’s too bad. Some stellar greenstuff work on his sculpted armour. Truly befitting a lord of war.

        • Thank you, I’m really trying to up my game now. I’m setting myself some higher standards for my future sculpts.
