2015 recap (Mantic Games, Gamezone and Creating Games)

It's been a super busy year! I didn't had much time to keep this page up to date with everything that was going on. Here's some of the things that I have been doing on miniatures! I kept on working on Heroquest 25th for Gamezone throughout the year and now the game is nearly finished. Have a look at some of the last miniatures I made for it:





I have also made many miniatures for a zombie themed game for the Spanish team Creating Games, some of them I'm really proud of. There's a lot more material out there in their youtube channel but here I preffer to show only images of the printed prototypes





There has been some projects for Mantic Miniatures, I love the dioramas that they do to show the figures in their social media. Since what I do for them is often produced in plastic, the figures take a lot of time to be released. Here's the peacekeepers that I made for them a lot time a ago:




I'm also working on some figures for Mantic Games's new game based on The Walking Dead comic series, I will show here some material very soon.

2014 recap (V) Deadzone Miniatures for Mantic Games

Mantic Games started recently realeasing some plastic kits I sculpted for them a year ago for Deadzone: the plague zombies and the peacekeepers. They sent me a copy of the plague zombie kit, but I'm still waiting for my Peacekepers (Mantic couldn't distribute them, they just received a load of boxes with copies from the factory, you can see the items in the peacekeeper sprue in the bottom right image).

2014 recap (IV) Dark Elf Bloodbowl team for Impact Miniatures.

I've been working in this little ones for a while now, there's fourteen unique different figures, it's the second blood bowl team that I get to make. The first blood bowl team I sculpted was a team of amazons, more than a year ago, and they were the first (more or less) realistic figures that I got to do professionally! I'm happy with the result!

I've sculpted dozens of realistic style figures from that days, and I feel much more confortable doing this kind of jobs. I am happy seeing how I have improved in this relatively small amount of time, only a year ago I was still struggling a lot with human anatomy.



2014 recap (III). Total Extinction painted casts.

Sentinel Games just released images of their Union of colonies infantry for Total Extinction. Can't wait to see the tank and the chopper I made for them too as well as the rest of the Glorlon alien army.

2014 recap (II). More chibi figures for Impact Miniatures.

It's been a while since this little ones started to ship to their owners. I have not received mine yet, but there's people starting to post images of the figures they paint. Here's a selection of them:




If you are interested, Impact set up another campaign that ended a few days ago https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-gaslight-horror-cthulhu-mythos-and-sci-fi-mi

2014 recap (I). HeroQuest 25th anniversary


During the last months there's been quite some news worth sharing.

First of all, I'm sculpting for HeroQuest 25th Anniversary edition! For those who don't know yet, Gamezone Miniatures bought the trademark HeroQuest in Spain. They made a successful crowfunding campaign that gathered more than enough backers to release an updated version of the game coming this winter to conmemorate the 25th anniversary of the game. There's been some controversy because of another company in the U.S. having the rights over the trademark there, and people arguing that it was somehow dishonest from Gamezone getting to make a game with the Heroquest name not having bought the trademark all around the world. Nonsense, all of it.

Long story short, this critics made it difficult to crowfound the game but finally they succeded, and I've been working with them for a few months now. It make's me very happy to say that I got to model the barbarian and the dwarf, my favourite characters, as well as the female dwarf, the huntress, and skeletons, mummies as well as other stuff that has not been released to the public yet and that I will show you as soon as I'm allowed.

Total Extinction

In the last few months I've been dedicating a lot of my time to sculpting figures for Total Extinction.
Total Extinction is a new scifi miniature wargame. You can check out their kickstarter campaign page here:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sentinelgames/total-extinction-battle-for-karnak


Up to now I have made more than 10 figures for the guys that are publishing the game (Sentinel Games)
I made all the Glorlon Army, and most part of the Union of Colonies Army. These are the two first factions being released, there will be more of them coming.

The Glorlon Raider:



Captain Zoya:

None of this figures would be half as awesome without our great concept artist, Vasiliy

Mother of Dragons, remake after a year and a half

I wanted to give a second try and see how much I could better myself on remaking a drawing that I made a year and a half before.

Before ("omg, that horse sucks!! :P"):

After:


Between one on the other theres a lot of hours of sculpting most of all, but also nearly daily sketchings (even if its only for a few minutes), 8 months of oil painting 5 hours a week, and lots of hours of study of anatomy, human and animal, cloth, etc...

It's not finished yet, but I think all that hard training was worth the effort. I've been doing some other sketches, I really should spend more time painting, I think. If I get to do something nice I'll let you know.

Some of my models in Sketchfab!

I got an account in Sketchfab, this great site where you can upload your 3d models for everyone to see. I put four models there for everyone to see, its very likely that from now on, every miniature series that I make will have at least a representative painted and uploaded there!

Only the first one is actually low poly, 2k polycount as it was a requirement. The other three models are previsualizations of an actual real painted toy figure for Impact Miniatures, I gave them a much higher polycount.

You can back the project this figures are for here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-asian-adventurers-miniatures-w-ninjas-and-mo

Chibi Asian Adventurers for Impact Miniatures

Hi everyone! I made this figures over the last year for Impact Miniatures. The Kickstarter campaign to get the project founded has just started! I sculpted 29 chibis so far. I used Zbrush for everything.


The figures are 30-50mm high. To present the project I composed this video showing some of the figures in color. I painted them trying to imitate miniature painting techniques, airbrush painting, drybrushing and washes :D



I hope we get enough money to make much more figures in this series!
