Did you sculpt a 28mm scale monster like your titan above? I remember seeing something like that only a lot larger.

No? I dont do much sculpting and I dont recall, probably not me XD
The above Titan is mostly a Kingdom Death Miniature, I only sculpted the bottom portion. Perhaps you saw one of the kingdom death prototypes or somthing?

Not too much going on, just real busy with work and getting ready for school but managed to get some stuff done, progress on the Deamonettes. And started some Skitarii, the "Inquisitor Power armour" was just me messing around, not sure its quite grim dark enough to be honest but it could make it as mentioned or as a void suit, or maybe even Powered Armoured Drop Troops.

You're blown by my skills!!! What are you talking about, youve done amazing work!!!!
Thank you though :)
The only thing not CAD was that all black Human Dummy, made that in sculptris then imported.
One thing I like alot about Tinker is that you can save individual parts and make a sort of library with them, its not very intuitive to do that in other programs ive used. So thats another thing ive been doing is just making parts to add to the library. In the future this will hopefully expedite any process I have.

Vanguard Miniatures has been working on some Cybershadows infantry, but I'm still very curious to see what you'll be doing with yours here. :)

Yea, it may be awhile, life is pretty demanding atm. No time for modeling im afraid. But ill get back to it when I can. The vanguard ones provide inspiration as well :)

I like the Crotch Plate proportions on theirs better, and the leg armour is kewl.

I dislike the rifle, and I can tell Ill have better 'poses'

It would have been cool to work together on it.

Interesting stuff sir well done. As you are probably aware my models are inspired by various other sources but we cannot directly copy anything for IP reasons. To address your comment on better poses and detail level, you must remember we are designing miniatures for moulding and metal casting, this requires you to comply with certain restrictions on what you can and cannot do with weapons scale and particularly with poses of infantry figures. We create figures that will consistently cast reliably and to a good quality standard. Designing miniatures for manufacture is a whole other discipline compared to pure 3D printing.

As for collaborating on projects I'm always open to being approached by designers with cool things that need developing.

Great stuff keep it up regards John

Thank you :)
I am very aware of that XD though it does seem you can vary how 'close' they are based on the model, I suppose that makes sense with trying to keep a low profile though. Yes Id have to defer to you on molding/casting, I tried it once with miserable results, just not my bag. I know for a fact that you can get extremely well detailed 6mm metal minis though (ala Italian) but I'm not sure how "manufacturing' friendly that was. I love the poses and detail in the CAD marines as well, to be fair though You've not released any photos of your cybershadows guys showing off poses or sergeants or such so commenting on their posing was a little preemptive. Though I hope they are good, I relish the opportunity for challenge :)
