    Test Piece For GW

    Hi all,

    I am sculpting this Rune Priest as a test for Games Workshop. They wanted me to duplicate any 28mm model as closely as I could. It's not exact but hopefully they will like it. I wasn;t sure where else on the forum to post it, so mods if you need to move it then I apologize!

    Thank you!
    A job, I'm trying to... I don't know though, I sure hope they like it! I would love to do that full time. I was honored that they even asked me to try!

    Looks great, though if you want some fresh eyes critique;

    The pouch next to his left armoured kneecap is squished unfortunately. The right shoulder pad needs some vertical height in its apex, its a bit to shallow presently. ^_^

    Otherwise your facial work is bang on, and I think your air-grasping hand is actually better than the priest weilding and axe. The splayed fingers, as if summoning power, is far more dramatic

    Thank you for the critique. I have been staring at this guy for a long time now. Fresh eyes are good!

    I asked them specifically if I had to make the weapons, since they probably wouldn't resculpt them everytime they make a figure, and they were fine with the hands. Since Rune Priests have Stormcaller, I figured I'll show him using it!

    Thanks

    yes very good luck, and very nice, i think you have a good shot, try to get on a tau design team, we could use some more models, or necrons would work 2, plus u can share all the inside info, like new works in progress etc.

    Even if he gets the job at GW i seriously doubt that he would be able to tell us anything 'coz its almost certain that GW would have him sign a NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement).
    Sorry to ruin your illusions but thats the way business goes...

    Anyway...I wish Fistof Manheim all the good luck in the world that he gets the job at GW...after all thats what we all dream of...making our hobby our Profession.
