Cheers guys, thanks for helping me keep my moral (and sanity) going.
I'm planning to do a new set of bases (without the GW portion) and get them casted. I have some new ideas for them which hopefully will make them funky.
Mantis - yeh good find, I had alien emu in mind lol.
On to pics....
This was suppose to be a smaller penguin, but turned into a duck last second lol - all because of the beak.
I call this one 'BadBird', he looks grumpy because his feet are pooey.
And the dreaded chicken. I realized that the previous attempt missed quite a lot of chicken features. Like the penguin, in real life they look a lot different to what I sculpted. That's the trouble on relying on memories filled with cartoons.
Still needs a head. The legs might be a problem as the wire looks a little thick.
Dammit there will be chicken!
