    Default Sculpting a griffon


    I have been sculpting this griffon for some time. I started this when griffons were somewhat useful in the game too. Now it is just too far away and too cool not to finish. It is on a 40mm base.

    This is the first monster I have sculpted. I am pretty happy with it, but I still have a lot to learn. I am using greenstuff and milliputty. The wings are from the Island of Blood griffon.

    I would wellcome all tips and commets.

    you appear to be doing everything right, lovely job. the only thing and im sure your going to do this anyway is a wire support for the tail. oh and possibly some small feathers at the base of the back legs. really impressed by the head by the way.

    Wow, what an impressive griffon! I especially love the way his beak is sculpted. The only thing I`m not sure about is the way that his wings are attached. I think he needs a bit more muscle on the front edge, close to where the rider would be seated. But thats a weak point in all GW sculpts too, so thats just me beeing nitpicky. Never mind, a fantastic detailed sculpt! Will you cast it or is it just for your personal use? I can see a market for that guy :-)

    When I was your age, Yuggoth was a planet.

    GW cares not from whence the cash flows, only that it flows!

    Fantastic piece of work. Love everything about it, but think the claws looks awesome.

    Best regards,

    Yuggoth, thanks for pointing that out. Now I see it too. I might add some more feathers there to make it look more muscular. I have to think about this. On the other hand, this is indeed getting a rider too, and those pansy elves wear dresses. So maybe it wont show that much when the rider is there.

    cassar, do you mean wire support for the tail? If yes, that is the plan indeed. I am goiing to but some fur to the hind legs too, but at that point the feathers are already transformed into hair, imo.

    Thanks for the support!
