Hi all, here two pics of a stone troll from the collection of Thomas aka Drukhi, who I visited last weekend. The paint job was a small thank you for the nice time I spent there. I painted the troll with my quick and dirty style in something about 2-3 hours. As soon as I will visit him again I will continue work on the miniature which was a great pleasure to paint! Many thanks to Thomas for the nice time!

Kind Regards GeOrc

Here the latest progress. I repaired the wings and some first details with the claws on the top. The claws are sculptured on a small wire armature which I glued into some small holes I drilled into the wings. I´m really satisfied with the result and there is only need for some correction work on the nails which I will do with some brownstuff. Further details are needed on the wings to cover some bad parts of my repair work. I will add some small skulls and hooks on chains on these bad parts. I also made the tranistion back and wings with some fur which grows out of the bottom of his wings. I hope you like it and have some feedback for me.

We had a very good hobby evening in our local GW store. I was able to finish the horns as well as the cloth around his neck. You can see that I shorten the horns a bit and add more volume. Otherwise than the large top horns which I wasn´t able to finish in one session, I finished the side horns with a lot of luck in ine session. It was perfect and with every movement of the tool on the putty it becomes better. Also I add some skull jewelry to his neck like the original Malagor wears one. I hope you like it. Like always feedback, critic and questions are very welcome. Kind Regards GeOrc

Hi All,
in some previous sessions I allready had sculptured the cloth around his neck. There is still some work on the endings but most of he texture and the cuttlings are there. Today I give the horns a first tryout and add more volume. I´m not satisfied with size and shape, so I will sand the horns when cured and add some more putty for some more volume where needed. I also add more details to the cloth and sculptured the backside of it which can´t be seen here in the pic. Nethertheless I hope you like it.
Kind Regards GeOrc

Hi all,
I promised it and here they are, clean good pics of my sculpturing work on the Malagor Miniature. You can see that I finished the belly plate with the beastmen skull and set the armature for the stole he wears around his neck. You can see that I always do rough armatures before I sculpture the details, here on the wings, the horns and also the stole. It makes the sculpturing process easier and you have something to work on. It´s better to work in more steps than try to finish such a detail in one step. When creating an armature be always sure make it thin nough that you can later add some putty but make it thick enough that isn´t to flexible, especially when it stands out of the miniature. I advide also to use a wire constructer where it is possible. Here I used on on the horns. Then I add some Brownstuff for fixing the construction, add some thickness and add a surface where the putty for the second putty layer get some grip. If there are further questions, feel free to ask them, I will try to answere all. Kind Regards GeOrc

Hi, this evening I had a spontanous hobby meeting togehter with Marcel. I did further sculpturing on the Malagor conversion. There was a lot of rough armature sculpturing on the horns and on the loincloth. Also I sculptured the belly plate and and repositioned the right leg. Again sorry for the bad pics. My sister has still my Digi Cam, but I hope I will get it back this week.
Kind Regards

I had a small sculpturing session today. I resculpt the body of Malagor and started to think about how to base the miniature. I decieded to create a burned roof as base which should fit to the idea of OSL fire effect in his left hand. I plan that the smoke from the roof will turn into his loincloth to fix the miniature in a flying position. The miniature is a lot of fun and I hope to get more progress tomarrow. Like always critic and feedback are very welcome.
Kind Regards GeOrc

Hi all,
like every second and fourth thursday in the month, we had our painting session in our local GW store. This month we decieded to paint the new Beastmen charakter Malagor. It´s in everyones own decision if you will paint the original, if you will convert it or in my case, I will sculpt a new one. Proudly I can present you the first project of this new year, of this new site and my return to the unwashed beasts. I hope you like it. Sorry that the pics which weren´t that good. I had only the chance to make some quick shots with my mobilephone, but I think you get a first impression and I hope it will be enough for you to come back regulary to see the progress. Then with better pics :)

Hi all out there,
a lot of ppl have mentioned my longer silence in the hobby and I will thank all, who send their calls to get me back on my workbench. Live has become more and more stressful and meanwhile I had very less time to care for all ppl and boards out there, where I offered my service for help and advice. That´s why I tried something new and created this blog to concentrate my knowledge and my help on a single spot. It will be also a place where everyone who is interessted in can follow the progress of my projects... and yes there are some and you will get the first pics soon. In the next weeks I will take time to create it more personal with a new layout and some first content. I hope you will enjoy this place.

Kind Regards
