Dentistic Sadistic – “Now that is a Tooth!”

crises_crs has concocted this fun, if a bit demented, scene. The backdrop is nicely done and the smattering of details adds to the “realism” but it is the posing of the figures and the expressions on their faces that make this work for me. Plus I love those giant teeth laying all about…

Creepy to the 10th degree

Grant Davis is rapidly becoming one of the premiere Castle builders out there. His latest build shows why. He has done more than master techniques. Grant has learned how to tell a story without words. The single picture speaks volumes and leaves the viewer wanting more. This particular build has a sense of the macabre that makes you step back and a sense of mystery that pulls you back in. It’s very well executed.

Etheldreed Windmill – A Pile of Texture

César Soares has created a rustic windmill, built in the round and composed of some really nice textured masonry and woodwork. It gives it a nice sense of age without being too distracting. The rest of the build works nicely to give the tower context. Not to say that there isn’t some nice technique going on there but the tower of the mill is star of this show.

Honshū Rice Terrace

Disco86 has built a unique bit of medieval history here. This scene depicts how the Japanse began to build rice terraces on the northern mountains of Honshū in order to cultivate rice there. The build is very striking. I can set aside my normal disgust for borders on this one because the flowing lines of the terraces are nicely accentuated by the rigidness of the border. The brightness of the blue also contrasts nicely with the black of the border and is complemented by the green vegetation. All that makes for a build that is really nice to look at.

Two Heads are Double the Trouble

The old saying says that “Two heads are better than one”. I don’t think that is the case with this Ettin by Letranger Absurde. I think two head make for more trouble than one when it comes to giants, at least in my personal experience. Yours may be different. I really like how the two heads have different looks and personalities though. Very nice touch. This two-headed Ugly was built for the Mixels D&D contest. Get your out googly eyes and build some beasties!

Torgrar the Clobberer

I like this guy. My family comes from the same general vicinity and I’m sure my ancestors were much like him. Well, probably more like the boneheaded companions mentioned in the description, but I digress. The Deathly Halliwell did a great job sculpting this figure. Naturally the torso stands out, but I also really like the face. The use of dark tan for the beard makes for a nice subtle effect and the dumbfounded look on his face is priceless!

Enter the Armory

You all know I’m a sucker for a good medieval scene. Well, this is a really good one. We don’t often see interior shots quite like this. Mark Erickson has knocked this one out of the park. I love the rows of weapons, the various stands and displays, as well as the overall architecture of the place. Overall, it’s a really nice build.
