Frills & Fauna: Glashtin

The next reveal for Frills & Fauna are the Glashtin. The sculpt shwon is an adolescent, with diminutive claws. More are likely to follow, as hinted by their behaviour.

Glashtins are a sentient species of water-dwellers. They are not hostile, but will respond to threats swiftly and in great numbers. Their name is taken from ancient folklore – stream or water goblins, known to change form. Their squid-like lower bodies often lead to them being mistaken for other creatures.

Introducing Frills & Fauna

Frills and Fauna is a small project I started in order to produce a selection of Sci-fi critters and accessories. I am aiming to launch it on Kickstarter in October. There will be a few initial sets of fauna and plenty of options to throw in individual extras should the project go beyond its funding goal (Stretch goals).

Creatures of the Night – Anibal

My third sculpt from the COTN range is Anibal, who is essentially a Minotaur. My first minotaur! I have a thing for Minotaurs, so this sort of sculpt was inevitable and is certainly the first of many. There was a bit of a disaster with the mold’s rubber, causing all sorts of delays and issues getting him cast, but we did salvage some good copies that are being used to build new models forthe range and likely other projects.

Creatures of the Night – Slanga

My second sculpt from the COTN range is essentially an Undead Ogre. His name is Slanga, one of the sons of Partholon. He is available to buy from Krakon Games.

As explained in yesterday’s post, I started this range with the challenge of making 3 undead models.  Slanga was the first undead model I started and obviously the first to be finished. I am mostly happy with the final model, but I rushed his right shoulder, leaving it far too thin. His skull is a little shallow, but then he is an Ogre.

Creatures of the Night – Nemain

This year I took the decision to push ahead with my sculpting ambitions. I made it my profession. Or half-profession, as I still do web development freelance to balance the books (read: eat food).

In between producing models for paying customers, I am exploring my own miniature range – Creatures of the Night. I set myself lofty goals. I work at them. They often change. It’s easy to get inspired (read: distracted) by new ideas.
