Kera foehunter:

Holy hashut those are soo cool !!! i like the second better

Grimstonefire:

Sculpting is good, but could be better in places. I prefer the first one in terms of detail, but the second one for pose. The first one looks like its waddling.

Snotling:

hm, i don’t this way to sculpt, where they make these molds. the minis look to flat, they need more chaotic details and stuff. the beards and the chainmail are not very good, the minis look only becuase of the mold-stuff cool this is… this is like cheating ^^

Thommy H:

Snotling is right. The press-moulded armour is about the only thing that looks decent, and that’s not even “sculpting”. If you look at the beards, the faces, the anatomy, he’s lacking some pretty basic skills. The cloak on the second one is terrible too - it’s just a sheet of green stuff stuck on haphazardly.

Sadly, it appears as if Scibor is spawning a few imitators, which is unsurprising given how much he makes from selling his greens.

Snotling:

but at least Scibor makes pretty cool stuff, showed in his early work, that he really can sculpt and he turned to a kind of legend :slight_smile:

wallacer:

The crisp detail on the metallic parts is amazing.

What is “press-molded”? I haven’t heard this before. I always wondered how they got it that smooth. Can someone explain it to me?

Ishkur Cinderhat:

The armour and fur are nice, but the nose is tiny and the beard is uninspired.

There's a tutorial on Scibor's site http://www.sciborminiatures.com/en_,sculpting.php hope this helps.

I definately agree with Snot, the beards on these guys are just terrible. the only thing I was impressed with was the horns on the helmet of the second one. I've no idea how he got them so smooth but guseeing by the rest of his work there's a simple technique for it. Does anyone know it?
