Default Treeman Scratch Sculpt WIP

Starting in on a treeman, now! So far, I'm having a blast. I've just done the head, sort of a dopey-yet-grumpy, lopsided face, pealing bark, a few spites, some mushrooms, etc. Considering either some draped vines or moss off of the left branch/stump, what do you guys think?


From the front. Moss/vines off that left stump or no?


The back, with shroomies and a spite, also a tree-growth....


From above. Dunno if you can see it, but there's a bird's nest and two spites, just hangin' out up there...

Also, when I get to the hands, I was thinking about having him holding a dead somebody-or-other. I suppose a beastman would be the obvious choice, but then it gets a bit funky if you're playing against dwarves, say... what's a good multi-opponent corpse, do you guys think?

Looking bloody awesome so far, love the birds nest touch. As for what victim, I think a human type form would be the most versitile especially if he doesn't have a head, that way it could be an human of any faction, a beastman, chaos warrior etc Could even work as an elf if needs must. You intending on casting and selling this?

Heh, thanks! Went back and forth on the bird's nest. I couldn't remember if Treebeard from LOTR had a bird's nest, and I didn't want to be copy-catting... Human is proabably the way to go. I like the headless idea, heck, headless it could almost be a scrawny beastman... sorta...

As far as casting/selling goes, most likely. First goal is treeman for my slowly growing Wood Elf Army, but I do sell the occasional sculpt/cast. I'll see how he comes out. If he's cast-worthy, then yeah, probably.

Most of my few sculpty hours last couple days have been turned over to working on "The King" for someone else, sigh. BUT I did get the basic right arm of Mr. Treeman all blocked in. Hopefully tomorrow I'll finish up the King and get to detail this arm, add in a dangling dead beastman...

I've more or less finished up my work-sculpt, so now it's back to play-sculpt. YAY! I've got the two arms of the Treeman well under way.

The left one, here, will be reaching forward in a "rawr" sort of way.


The right will be at his side/behind him, losely holding a dead beastie (just starting the beastie). Wish I'd gotten a better view of his face, he's got a nice rictus-snarl going!

Ok, all that's left is the torso, and then I can cast and paint him! Excited to finally have a treeman, I mean really, what self-respecting Wood Elf army doesn't have a freikin' Treeman???

Here's the left arm, that will be reaching out.


The right arm with the beaten-up beastman.


The Base, with his feet attached...


And of course the head.


Man oh man do I want to get that torso done and get him all together...

This is looking seriously fantastic mate. Do you scratchbuild all your models? Have you ever thought of starting an alternate modeling company

I have a fair amount of standard/converted models, but I'm currently building a scratchbuilt Wood Elf army.

Also, I'm in the start-up phase of running an alternate model site at the moment! I've done Sculpt Commissions off and on for a while, but I'm starting to pick up speed with that, and should soon have cast duplicates available, so I'm a bit 'cited about that...!
