    Hey Guys!

    These guys are nearing completion! These two fellas are basically done, except that they need to be put together and get the gear put on them. Also they need a good cleaning up with some steel wool. I am still deciding on a pose for the last guy, but I should get him started relatively soon.

    Let me know what you think!

    Hey Anders,

    It is coming together nice. You can see an improvement with each new figure you do. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Joe and Roc :)


    Here are the figures finished, before priming! Im glad to present you " Don't Worry Buddy, We'll get ya out of here". Im having second thoughts about the third guy, Ive finished these two, and havent even started on the third one, and I have other projects I want to get going with. Maybe I will think about it for a while, it is always possible to add to it. As for painting it, I am not sure that I will paint it right away or if I will start sculpting something else, its nice to have something to paint when you feel like it, so I may just start my next project.


    Anyways, I would really appreciate honest comments, if you think it sucks, please tell me, but you have to say why, as well as if you like it, why do you like it? Im really trying hard to improve on my sculpting skills and would love your honest opinions.

    Thanks for all the encouragement through out this project, been a lot of help!

    Anders,that's a REALLY GOOD job that you did with the 2 figures (y) (y) ! The folds look spot-on to me and the pose of the figures really suggests the urgency of the situation that they are in,namely,that they are under fire and must get out of there ASAP ! I'm glad you left the pose of the standing figure's head as is,as it clearly indicates where the threat to them is coming from.That,my friend,is my honest answer.Cheers !

    Anders,

    Looks great to me buddy! (y)

    The composition is wonderful. The expression on the face and postion of the head of the soldier helping, shows strain and anxiety.

    The only thing that caught my eye, was the detail of the shirt pockets. IMO the "seams" look too prominent, or deep. In this scale, I believe you can achieve this effect by painting instead of making impressions. But hey, once you put on primer and a coat of paint, it may not look so noticeable.

    Other than that, it looks pretty damn good to me! Can't wait to see it painted.

    Btw, judging by the shape of the patch, are these Air Cav guy's?

    Hey Guys!

    Thanks for your comments!

    I agree about the pockets, and I think they need to be thinned a little, especially the wounded guy. I rather sculpt the lines as then I wont forget to paint them, which I might if I don't. Also, I see it as practice, at first it was hard to get semi straight lines with an X-Acto on soft putty, but it keeps getting easier. Maybe one day I can get something real close to the same width!

    And yes, they are air cav guys! The patches were a pain to do, the one on the wounded fella came out really good IMO, but the second one didnt come out quite as good, we'll see how bad excactly once primed.

    Hey Anders,

    I like what I see. A very good theme. Looking forward to its completion with painting of course.

    regards :lol:

    Hi Anders!

    The animation you have with these too is just superb! The ungency and effort in the standing guy is spot on!

    I agree with Jason on the pocket seams; understand why you do them like this but maybe just a tad heavy maybe, IMHO!

    Is the M16 from Dragon?

    Think you can do a lot with these with some paint on them!

    Looking forward to that!

    :)

    Thanks for your replies guys! It really helps!

    Rob,

    Yes, the M16 is from DML, as well as some of the equipment, the resin parts are Verlinden.

    Anders, I think the composition is very good, but to my eye the buttocks are too low. It may be the photos but it seems that the length of the torso is too long at the back of the standing figure. With the pants stretched taut as they are, perhaps the buttocks should end just below the jacket bottom.

    Again, congratulations on achieving a believable symmetry with conjoined figures.
