Palaudis Tribe Occulite Green Preview

I really just wanted to share the first Occulite green that I have sculpted.

It is a member of the Palaudis Tribe (Swamp Tribe) and is armed with Gumbark Spear. Fits nicely on a 30mm base or with a couple of toe-pads over on a 25mm base.

I hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear any feedback you all may have.

Please post your thoughts below or feel free to email me at benDOTboersmaATgmailDOTcom

    That is really awesome! The details really show up well and the 3-d treatment brings it to life. It looks like it’s just waiting to go back into the water and spy on passers by with its eye poking above the water and spear at the ready just in case. Good job!

    Looks fantastic Ben.

    What are using to model them? (excuse my ignorance).

    If a minis game – how many minis per side and what ‘size’ game are you thinking?

      Thanks again Giles 🙂

      I have been using “Green Stuff” which is an epoxy resin to model them, but have more recently been dabbling with Pro-create (which is utterly fantastic!).
      Especially with holidays coming up, I hope to be expanding the range of models soon (hopefully getting better all the time – practise makes perfect). In fact I have the first half of three Luftles completed this evening.

      In terms of the mini game, it is a very small scale skirmish. Tribes travel around in groups of 5 Occulites (no more, no less), so each side will consist of 5 Occulites and a number of Luftles depending on how successful they are recruiting them. Different tribes have a different rapport with them, so will affect how many they can have (or their chances of recruitment).

      Board size is anywhere between 60cm square to 90cm square.
