this was my first attempt to sculpt to 28mm scale.
 my brother is creating a christmas themed Mordheim (an old table top miniature war game) warband so i decided to make him a little somthing to go with it. i didnt want to put a lot of effort into painting it as i thought he would almost certainly want to paint it himself but because it is a gift i used coloured clay to sculpt it because  i wanted it to look a little more impressive than it would have if i sculpted it in scrap clay.
i did add a wash of water blue acrylic paint to his body to pick up a little detail though. i textured the snow using a texture sponge, it gets a lot of use, usually with black clay so rolling the white clay over it made it nicely grubby which fits well with the dark theme.

I can't help but think there is something wrong with me - but I think I love this more than a jolly Frosty-esque snowman.... I kind of want this in my window.  It makes me think of the warped/tortured snowmen a friend made years ago - but so much more sophisticated!

That's a wonderful little snow golem (c'mon, you know that's what it'd be classified as in a tabletop RPG)!  Great detail and pose.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
