This week we have another sculpting project in the Gardens. I was commissioned by @totally_not_panicking to sculpt a set of grim warriors which will be cast and given away as prizes at the Smash Bash 2021 hobby competition. Smash Bash is a "mini competition that celebrates the creative, gruesome, pathetic, and evocative side of our hobby." It's an online comp, and there are two categories: one focusing on kitbashing and the other on creating a dramatic scene. The organizer had custom trophies made, and a bunch of prizes (some yet to be revealed). You can learn more by visiting the Smash Bash website, and see what's new by following #smashbash2021 over on Instagram.



The sculpts were a lot of fun to make, and I'm looking forward to eventually painting them for my gaming collection. I'm also pumped to sculpt more knights after this!



If one competition for the grim and the dark is not enough for you, 28 magazine has another #28magchallenge running at the moment! The theme this year is "Downtrodden", focusing on the drudges of Warhammer 40K's  Adeptus Administratum. Have a look at their website for more information and challenge rules.  

If you want a custom miniature or piece of scenery made for you, drop me an email - you can find it in the bottom of the page, together with the Gardens of Hecate Facebook, Instagram and RSS links.

Very atmospheric and well sculpted. I like the mount a lot! Looking forward to seeing them painted and hoping you gonna make more knights indeed.

The undead pig-rider is fantastic! I want a regiment of them! :-D

Love the middle guy the most, his helmet is brilliant! How long did it take for you to sculpt these?

@potsiat - Thank you very much!

@Wonky Dog - Thanks! A regiment would look neat, especially if each was slightly modified to be unique.

@Luke - Thank you! I sculpted them across a couple weeks, a bit of work each day so layers have time to cure in between.

These are great. The skull helmeted knight looks like he could have walked out of some of Mike Mignola’s artwork. These will make a wonderful reward to compliment SmashBash.

Thanks Greg! I can’t wait to paint them, and see them converted/painted by others.
