This project has made me really feel for those renaissance sculptors back then. They must have spent hundreds of hours on a leg alone of that marble statue, that’s to scale. Meanwhile, I’m over here struggling to fill in this man’s lower back at a scale of 1:56 in ~4 hours.
Do you remember Legos? I loved Legos, snapping those little feet destroyers together was the highlight of many weekends I had as a kid. Building minis is akin to building a sky scrapper (or spaceship) out of Legos, kind of.
On the last entry I described the scene I wanted to paint. Here I'll talk about the choices in minis for this project. Because, every painting project must begin with figures to paint so deciding on which minis to paint seems like an important step.
