Thanks for all the input on my previous post.
I got this connery head a little while ago to use as Ramirez but wasn't entirely happy with it. Anyway, i've done a bit of work on it and would like your opinions again.
Does this one work better?

New pictures on next page.

That one is absolutely spot on. THis should be a great figure. Are you going to shrink the head or go 1/6 scale? IN either case, that's a terrific start. I'd love to paint a cool head like that, though I've never attempted that scale before. Cool stuff.

I will be shrinking it to 8", the head is actually a little smaller than other 1/6 heads.
Copies will be available if anyone is interested.

Ian, in your experience do you find it is easier to shrink than to enlarge a sculpt?

I find it alot easier to shrink sculpts.

Quite a few heads i've enlarged over the last few months have gotten too big in the water and when i take them out to reduce down again they split open.

It's also easier to work on bigger heads than small ones.

That's Connery alright, much better than the other sculpt

I'd like to take all credit for the sculpt but i just did the hair, earring and moustache. I'm not sure what figure ( if any ) the original head came from.

Cool Ramirez. And I see you made the "end of the movie Kurgan" version :silly: :wink_y: :smiley1:

yeah, i thought it would be easier than the armoured version, though i might tackle it one day.

I've just got hold of the 1/6 Sideshow final fight Kurgan and decided to replicate it in 8".

these guys are looking great. the only thing i see so far that might be a pain is how thick Duncan's neck looks. nice work so far!

yeah, i didn't really pay much attention to it until i saw the photo's but it has now been sorted and looks much better.

Here's a picture of the Dragon handle which i'm making for Ramirez and Connor's swords:

Surprisingly, Duncan's sword is turning out a bit more difficult to get right.

I deleted it because i took new ones ( see page 2 ) and i didn't have enough room to upload the newer pictures in my gallery.

I'm not sure if i will be able to cast it but i will try.

The swords are from the 7" Hiro Nakamura figure.
Forbidden planet had them on sale so i bought 4. I just shortened the handle and sculpted the dragon head.
