I’m not just interested in prehisoric fantasy warfare. My other range of figures is called “Retro Raygun.” This range of pulp sci-fi miniatures are based on the books, comics, movies and toys of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. I intend to release the miniatures in sets or episodes. The first wave or “episode” will be entitled “Ace McGuire and the Legions of the Robot Queen.”
The robot pictured below is still a work in progress. It still needs more refining—panel lines, metal trim, and rivets. It is sculpted from a mixture of brown and green kneadatite–these are the best putties for making hard-edged sculpts. The sculpt stands 70mm tall and is inspired by the robots in “Sky Captain” and one of my son Adam’s favorite movies “The Iron Giant.” I’ve only sculpted one arm since it is universal and will be “cloned” in the master mold. I’d love to see the finshed casting painted in a brushed steel non-metallic metal (NMM) technique. I’m thinking about a variant kit that may include a jet pack, arms with fists, and various heads.
