My grand plan

Russrmc

Hi and welcome. I'm Russ and I work in miniatures design for tabletop, rpg and boardgames. I've been working in the industry for seven years and I am currently the studio lead for a UK based minis and boardgame producer. 

 

I'm also a big hobbyist, and I am currently working on a new Skaven army for AoS. However, let's be honest, some of the minis in that range are less than ideal. I fact I remember selling a few of them when I worked at GW myself. And I left in 1999...

So, to make my awesome new Skryre list look as good as I can, I'm harnessing my experience in minis design, and my new 3d printer, to update and modernise my list using current plastic kits as a basis, and creating parts to turn them into whatever I need. 

I'm going to blog this on here and on my gmsibg group page as I thought the process might be interesting, as it'll show a lot of the stuff that happens behind the curtain with minis manufacturing. And it will hopefully lead to some cool pictures of skaven bad asses.

 

To begin! My skryre list is not totally locked but I've immediately identified the issues with acolytes and jezzails as my first target. For both, I'm going to use storm vermin as the torso bases and create arms, heads and accessories to change them up. 

My initial work is shown below... I aim to have the complete kit done in the next few days.. And on Thursday I'm setting up the new 3d printer I just bought! I'll detail that too, in case anyone else is thinking about getting one! 

Until Wednesday...

1 - Love the renders.

2 - Always good to hear how people get on with 3d Printing.  It is still trial and error, but the printers keep getting better.

3.  Maybe look at putting together a little shapeways shop - you might get a few shiny things for your hard work.
