I have just finished four Zhodani gcarriers and posted pictures to my blog.

There are also some pictures of other recent work that I may not have posted here.

Sorry couldn't help myself. spambots are a blight upon the community

Really like your work, especially the soap dishes. I wouldn't have seen the potential in them

Thanks, Dragon6.

I'll go clean up and block the spambots. Again.

I'm always looking at shapes when I'm out. I wonder how many designers of plastic items are also miniatures gamers.

Excellent work, Oberlindes. Nice to see the RAFM Traveller miniatures.

Nice use of alternative materials. I think the piece you are considering for a sensor array is part of a diffuser from a hand held hair dryer.

Thanks, Dougkl. I think you're right. This one is similar:


You never know what you'll find at garage sales and the like, for practically nothing.

Nice looking stuff.

Love the G-Carriers, and the Zhodani small craft, as well as your excellent choice for the Zhodani troops.

How did you texture the Zho small craft?

I really like the look of that, since it adds a lot more interest to the models.

I used an old nylon mesh laundry bag and a light dusting of gray spray paint on the small craft.

For the snakeskin effect on the gcarriers, I used plastic mesh fruit bags.

The textures are purely visual, not 3-dimensional.

Thanks for the info.

They do look rather 3-D-ish to me, and I really like the effect. Thanks for sharing your techniques.
