OK. Bear with me for a second. I may have lost my mind . . .



Aside from getting those little "blocky" reptile figures from Legos:

What ready-made figures are out there that 1) are about 1 inch tall and, if painted properly, 2) could pass for a primitive (crudely-carved) Alien statue?

There's the snarky answer of any 28mm figure…

What kind of alien? Grey, reptilian, 'angel', etc…?

I thought about using a badly-cast figure and filling in the spaces between the arms and body, etc., with putty, just to make it look crudely carved.

Don't know if that's the route I should take though. I'd love to know if anyone has done anything like that.

Or should I just take a block of something and start cutting into it:

The dollar stores this past Spring had Tiki head ice cube trays. You can also get Easter Island ice cube trays online.

Hmm. Carved beads might be small enough to work as a stela or pillar for 15mm.

Completely unrelated, but just as cool to see in "stone" . . .

What about finding some packaging for 1 inch tall kids toys and using the plastic packaging that is sort of vacuumed sealed around it and using that as a rough body shap?

At the risk of being blackballed for including a link to GW, have you considered looking at their lizardman glyphs?


They're not statues, but it might give you some inspiration.
