This is a log of my latast sculting project, a "counts as" bloodthirster for my Word Bearers. I have yet to sculpt another wing out of the base clay, but at only 3 a batch, this should appear within due course. This is a cross between a dragon and a spawn, and takes inspiration from the Counterstrike Zombeis (note the chest splitting, will sculpt ribs and guts), FW and GWs gulragh model, and of course pox's masterpeice. The base is clay, with the skin and other details being GS.

Excuse the pen, It's not stuck down yet so needs support. I shall do a layer of stretched muscle as is seen here all over, and then sculpt skin and scales over that (the point being I can have tears in the skin anywhere I want and there will always be muscle tissue showing underneath).

Errrg. Looking at the pics makes me see that they need better quality. I'll experiment with my camera tonight and have some pics up tomorrow.

It's a balrog head that's been sculpted around

Intense sculpt Keeper, I like what you've done with the balrog head. Should be fun to see the beast come together.

nice *cou (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=82648)gh* but seriously, that is great... excellent green stuff work as well, much better than anything I could churn out... finish it!

The sculpting looks brilliant, and the two heads and long necks certainly make it look very different to the standard Bloodthirster, looking forward to seeing this progress some more. :D

Yes, It is based partly on that, but not fully.

Glad everyone likes it. I'll get back onto this as soon as I finish my Nidzilla (sig), which should be very soon.
