Some new sculptings

Attempting to do some sculpting using some generic Bronze age girls for the base.  I then surfed the web for some ideas, I knew the first one I wanted to try to do was Ali Larters  character Clair Redfield from resident evil. I just really liked the look.

I also found a bunch of drawings that I liked, one steampunky the other a survivor type

For the steampunk girl I added a radio device to her hand and I am reworking the things in the front of the survivor, I am not happy with how they came out(I think the are suppose to be knives but not really sure)  I'm also think of placing a weapon in her hand.  Comment and suggestions always appreciate.
Sorry for the picture quality

behind the lines

Equipment check,  Towel, check, shower cap,  check, Soap on a rope, check ,back brush,check...even a Quar needs to keep clean.

 I wanted to do a few terrain pieces for a rear camp I figured on doing a shower, latrine, cook tent, and hospital tent, any comments or other ideas would be appreciated.

The Showers
 Fun first little vignette for my Quar camp, I used some corrugated plastic card and pipe,coffee stirrers, some paper towels soaked in white glue and some small chain.  Its a gravity feed shower using a rain barrel and pull chains,offering some bit ofcomfort to those Quar who in the rear  rinse, lather,repeat

My soon to be clean Ryfler, started out as Ehn'k'du a Quar barbarian(picture from Zombiesmiths web site)

I basically just covered him up with putty, for the Cap/towel, filed the sword down and added a brush head,removed the scabbard and bracelet, added some toes, and a  bar of soap to the neck chain. 
Time to get clean :)

new stuff and wip

Well it’s been a while since I have posted anything, so I figured I better do something.  I have been working on a bunch of 15mm stuff but nothing done yet. And I am still working on my Quarworld

First up is my Caravan Master.  I started and finished him a while ago but never posted the final picture so here he is.  The Master himself (kind of inspired by the late artist Mobeus), along with the saddle and most of the baggage were made with bits of extra Quar, putty and metal rings. 

 He leads the caravan through the deserts of Kryst, smoking his hookah and riding atop a large beasty that started out as a Bantha from the Star Wars universe. I cut off the tusken raider atop and the horns, then removed the mouth. I added the saddle rig re sculpted the fur on the face and added the eyes and tusks to give it more of an elephant look.   

Next, yet more caravan beasty’s on the horizon.  A pretty simple conversion so far, starting out with an inexpensive toy Rhinoceros with his horns and ears clipped off and a boney face plate and rounded horns, saddle and blanket roll added with putty. any suggestion on a color scheme?

The Faerf and Sothwyr armored vehicle are resin castings from Zomiesmiths’ Quar line.  The upper body of both casting were well detailed but the underside of both has major air bubbles that left large holes.  The Faerf  I filled in with putty and re scultped the saddle straps that were now gone.  The Sothwyr I think I will leave as is and paint it up as if it ran over a landmine(making lemonade out of lemons) I am going to try to do a desert pink (SAS, LRDP) style paint job on this and see how it comes out. 
Almost finished with my armored car I built for the Quar adding a bit of baggage to the rear (some baggage,bread fuel and a barrel of water (?) or maybe something else.
