A Clown with the horn!

Zomtober 2013 - post #4


So the end of 'Zomtober 2013' is upon us and here, then, is my final entry.*  Bubo the clown is another fine sculpt from those good people at 'Tengu Miniatures' and a delight to work on.  Again, another two piece sculpt, this time the lower left arm, holding the horn needs to be attached and positioned according to taste.



Bubo's particularly unpleasant skin condition certainly marks him out as one of the damned, but hearing that infernal horn sounding as he shuffles forward towards you might certainly rank up the fear factor! 



Finally a group shot of what has been achieved over the month; 'Zomtober 2013' has proved to be a wonderful diversion and I just want to thank 'Pulp Citizen' for coordinating this year's madness.  It has been lovely to follow the exploits of the others taking part and I look forward to next year!


* I hope to have a Zombie related Halloween post later in the week!

  21. I was rather shocked with the title and rather relieved when I saw the zombie, but saying that that skin looks worst than the idea I had in my mind and you have done a great job on the Zed Michael.

  22. A fitting finale to quite a beautfully replusive group.

  23. Yuk!! I mean, how wonderful! Clowns are creepy as hell and you've ratcheted-up that sentiment by a few giant leaps. Well done, Michael!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, it reminds me ofd the clown in 'Alone in the Dark'. What a terrific lot of figs you have there Michael. Thanks for sharing! :)
