The Martians are coming!!!

Hya folks,
its been a little quiet here, no exuses, just me having a little existential gaming crisis.
So I've decided to enter the 6mm sculpting competition over at the Angel Barracks forum, it looks like just the ticket to get me out of my gaming and modeling funk.

I don't think I'll make the deadline but we'll see where this goes.

I am going to try to sculpt some cephalopod aliens.
This is what I've got so far:

I made 10 dollies (mainly because I always mix to much green stuff :mrgreen: )
Just simply pushed a clothespin through a magnetic base and into a cork so I have something to hold on to.

Then I covered them in green stuff to form the base and give the details something to hold on to.

Even though I know you are supposed to let them cure before adding anything more I had some green stuff left over (see :P ) so I couldn't resist trying a few things out.

Here's a closer look at what I've got so far, with a hansome colonist for size reference.

I'd like to add a large central eye above the beak and then enlarge the head a little and make it look more like a brain, then I'll add two more tentacles holding some kind of weapon.

That's it for now, hopefully I'll have another update for you soon, stay tuned...

Cheers,
Stroezie.
