    thanks guys. about a year later from my first molds, i've finally completed the last figure of my first set the Apocalypse Parade. So while in terms of design, this mini may seem a step back. It relies more on the elements of collage with minimal sculpting and clay work. Yet in stepping backwards, we are constantly reminded of the past, when we were ahead of ourselves. And in addressing the discrepancies of rightful displacement and timeline progression's precession to forward possession, it becomes necessary to complete that which was left behind.

    The Apocalypse Parade minis had a dual artistic goal in terms of transformation. The first goal was to morph the everpresent toybox regulars of farm and jungle animals into a more intellectually complex framework. The idea being that a three year old can play with most of these miniatures without noticing a difference between my warped figures and those other sundry cheapies in the box. Yet an adult would immediately notice their purposefully warped nature. The Wing'd Rhino, Bombardier Gorilla, Snailion, and Conch-Elk occupy this strange creature status.

    The second transformative goal was to take those figures from childhood and imbue them with a faux-archaelogical value by attempting to mimic the decay of classical sculpture. The Wing'd Rhino and Hippo-Rider achieve this most effectively as I can manipulate the pour-time of the resin so that not all details in the mold are reached, leaving a broken statue effect. However there was always another character that I had planned to help balance out this purpose: the Piper.

    Naked Snail-Cherub playing a flute on top of some dice, pretty standard.

    huh. Didn't have the history 'til just now. Awesome variety, some great photo too! Still love that Parade set, now am intrigued by other stuff that shows in pix. Is there a resin casting FAQ out there somewhere?

    Most excellent, really liking Lee's paint as well!

    Wow, really like these designs; I'll have to get some eventually if possible.

    There's a link for how to make your own figures, both resin and vinyl, and if you're going the vinyl route I'm pretty sure there's a tutorial on how to make a cheap rotocasting machine as well to properly spin your figures. Hope that helps!
