Sculpting Oldhammer Daemons – Flamers
Some classic models are easy to acquire, others are rare or expensive. In an attempt to get back into sculpting and fill some gaps in my army, I’ve decided to try and create my own versions of Oldhammer models.
I got some new styluses for Christmas, so here’s the obligatory tool shot.
I’ve been working with the blue stylus (smallest) and a basic clay shaper. You tend to get comfortable with a single weapon rather than swapping through the options!
The first model I wanted to tackle was the Tzeentch Flamer. The classic model is quite simple and silly looking, but I wanted to keep its quirkiness and add in some hints of other concepts. Here is my idea sheet (plus a herdstone?!).
I went with the 1st/2nd generation body as a base.
Which quickly came together to produce this toothy critter.
Being such simple structures, I did 3 bodies initially.
