Upcoming projects

Publié le 30 Septembre 2007 par Hellric dans Hellric

Sorry if I've been quiet and for the lack of updates, I took some 'creative sabbatical times' but this is in no way a lack of interest or motivation.  I have many projects in mind to give me work until at least june 2008.
A lot of Lovecraft-inspired miniatures of course, I'm currently working on a small Cthulhu made with Gamera figures (the Turtle/dragon-like creature from a manga). 
I've also begin to work on 2 Cthulhu inspired tyranids : cthulhu Broolord and Cthulhu Hive Tyrant. Expect all of these this year.
Then I'll also make a custom Cthulhu, my third one actually, using McFarlane dragons.
Later also, I have a Keeper of Secrets from Forgeworld to do, and a Medusa/Mother Hydra custom action figure.

I'll also get some new robots this year, and of course pictures will be provided. 

Maybe some new chaos conversions will be integrated in the planning, as the new plastic spawns and possessed offer new perspectives for sure.

So many projects are showing, stay tuned.


Sota Toys unveils a shadow of Nightmares of Lovecraft 2

Publié le 5 Septembre 2007 par Hellric dans Cthulhu

Sota Toys has posted, a few days ago, a new image, a shadow of what is probably another figure of the second wave of Nightmares of Lovecraft figures. Maybe it's the new Great Cthulhu, but the Mythos has also other winged beasts as Mi-Go, Byakhees, Nightgaunts... Also it doesn't completely match the figures show @ SDCC 2007 so maybe this is a third one to complete the trio with new Cthulhu and Deep One.

So we still can guess what it is but anyway i'm pretty excited about it, it's already cool for as it has wings and tentacles.

SAE Zwauth custom garage kit (Aura Battler Dunbine)

Publié le 4 Septembre 2007 par Hellric dans Mech & robots

I took a long time, I had to face a slowing in my motivation, but now it's done ! What's "it" ? My aura battler Zwarth resin kit from SAE, customized to look like a Zwauth aura battler (the zwarth is in the anime, the zwauth in the OVA, he has batlike wings instead of fly wings + a big tail). 
He comes just one year after my first garage kit, which was also a zwauth aura battler (yes, I like these things a lot :) ).
The wings came from a devilman figure. I had thought to use balrog wings from GW but they were way too small, as this beast is huge : 15 cm to top of head, 21 cm overal height, and 34 cm wingspan ! The painting was inspired by the original Zwarth from SAE and by the Zwauth from the OVA. 
Paints used were Games Workshop acrylics, with new foundation paints, a black basecoat from GW (works great !) and acrylic medium to thin and help blending...
Once again, special thanks to Masayuki for finding me this kit on Yahoo Japan, it wasn't available on ebay nor even as recast on Hobbyfan or E2046.
Now let's look at the battler :
