Trades - Open by SweetDuke Artwork, Figures, you name it.
Commissions - On Hold by SweetDuke At the moment. More or less, And i don't like them. Too less money for so much Worktime. I prefer Trades. BUT you can ask me anytime.
No Gifts by SweetDuke even some exeptions proves the rule.

I really should wirte something about myself and what in the hay am i doing here. Especially for everypony with no experience in Tabletop games. Nether do i. Yust a hard crush in the Miniatures and relizing that making them is not impossible. Never mind. I came here in the first place to post some of my art. But now i do more sculpting anthro Ponys than drawing them. But technically both is necessairy. I can't make miniatures without some guidance Artwork.


My current Project is a army of the everfree Ponys. That means i named them so, because what name would be better for a group of anthro druid Ponys supported by a bunch of Golems and ferocious beasts like twoheaded dogs and big cats?
In the end, this will be a full functional tabletop fraction, using the original rules of Hordes. Some Background is here. privateerpress.com/hordes/mons… .

How many debates are on tabletop (and some Brony-) forums about the Background and the rules of a tabletop army of Ponys without a single breakthrough. I for myself took another way by using existing books and miniatures. And if modifications are necessairy, only on the minis. In other words, this project will be rule conform but it looks completly different.
To do that, i must observe a guidance of the Rulebook of Hordes.
1. I can't change the size of the base, because this is essencial for nearly everything.
2. I can change the look of the original Miniature but it must be still indentifiable. I do that by using marked similarities.
3. I will NOT using the mane 6. I'm good in making tabletop Ponys but my experience in tabletop playing is terrible. I will lose. My ponys will go down. And that's something i dont want do with the mane 6. Exept Rarity cause she's already here and maybe Fluttershy.

What Materials i use for doing that:
Unlike other crafters i'm not working with Super Sculpey or Fimo. My material is Pro Crate, Keadatite Brown Stuff and plastic card for the frame. Both putty are hardening by time, not temperature and that will come in a coupe of hours. Pro create for doing almost everything, Brown stuff for everything with sharp edges.
To work with them i have some Tools very familiar with dentist worktools. Who cares, it works.

About commisions.....
Unlike the small size of my work it took really long to make one of those. (And i'm not a swift worker anyway.) And my free time is not unlimited. So yes i do commisions, if i have some time for do that. And at the moment i have enough commisons to do.

To honest, i set this date because of some figurine i did for the Galacon. -And forgot to edit the page after the con.

Auf deutsch: ich habe dieses Datum gesetzt wegen einiger Figuren die unbedingt bis zur Galacon fertig sein mussten und hab seither meine Startseite nicht mehr überarbeitet. Juli ist lange vorbei, ich bin offen für eine ganze menge. Trades inklusive, vor allem wenn du die Partnerin wärst.
:iconlykaios-avery: hat mir an der Galacon eine Derpy verkauft. Jetzt bin ich auf der Suche nach einer Dinky doo.

Jetzt hab ich meinen Account auch wieder gefunden. Nun kann ich auch so nochmal grüssen. Viel spass für die restlichen Tage auf der Spiel und mach bitte beim Zirkel weiter. Wenn alles fertig ist treten wir mal gegen einander an.

Oh ja. An der Spiel hatte ich einige schöne Erlebnisse, auch mit Zeichnern. Momentan bin ich noch an einigen Figuren aber die Tabletop Ponys kommen auch noch. Bald gibt es Astmänchen mit vier Beinen.
