Trades - Open by SweetDuke Artwork, Figures, you name it. Send me a offer, it won't hurt both of us.
Commissions - Open by SweetDuke Eyyup, they are now. But beware, sculptures are not cheap and take months. Drawings however are a different story.
Commissions - Ask Me by SweetDuke everytime. Commissions are possible, if i have the time for them. Depends if the're art or Figurines.
No Gifts by SweetDuke even some exeptions proves the rule.

What am i doing here.
On the first place, this Account was created to upload drawings. And now there a lot of photos of small pony Sculptures.

It's not that i'm a Tabletop gamer. Even if most of the Figurines are fit for this kind of Game. I just have a hard crush in the Miniatures and realizing that making them is not impossible.

Is it Possible?

That's the question that i'm asking myself every time while starting a new Figurine. And the usual answer is YES!

In the end, drawing and sculpting has somme synergy. Because both is necessary. I can't make miniatures without some guidance Artwork. It's a question about how you work best. And i need a good artwork first.

Besides sculpting various Ponies, my big goal is the everfree Pony battle group.
OK, original it's the circle Orboros from Privateer press. But because what name would be better for a group of anthro druid Ponies supported by a bunch of Golems and ferocious beasts like two headed 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… .

At this way, one problem is avoided: those Ponies fit the existing rules. Because there is nothing be said about how a figurine have to look. Only some guidance is to consider.
1. No changes in the size of the base, because this is essential for almost everything in this game.
2. I can change the look of the original Miniature but it must be still identifiable. I do that by using marked similarities.
3. I will NOT using the mane 6. I'm good in making tabletop Ponies but my experience in tabletop playing is terrible. I will lose. My ponies will go down. And that's something i don't want do with the mane 6. Except 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 commissions, if i have some time for do that. And at the moment i have enough commissions to do.

And made some baaad experience with it.
I can't prove it. But sometimes, there is so much coincidence between the releases of Privateer Press and Hasbro that fits together. Hard to believe that's not planed at all.

Driving My little Pony into a tabletop game is kind of crazy. Because all this game does is fighting. MLP however solves problems without weapons and brutality. And i like that aspect very much. That's the reason why almost none of my miniatures of this game aren't armed with real weapons like forged swords.

But let's go a few years back. I started with the Project well knowing that there will be some units never be converted into my army. Because where wolfs or mutated human have no place in Equestria. That means, no heavy infantry at the moment. But if it comes to the warbeasts, the story is completely different.
First, there was the incoming of new creatures from Privateer press. Flying ones. And i feared i can't use them. However, turns out they're Gryphons. And not just one but now three different types.
From the other side, with trade ya!, the Orthrus was introduced. Two headed Dogs are canon now, so i can use them with no doubt. And there are several other miniatures.

And now this one.
The Storm Raptor. A oversized bird, perfect support for a Caster i'm sculpting right now. Kruger alias Derpy, you will get a huge friend. And the town hall will be only a minor thing that is crushed by lightning. Maybe one figurine i can buy and don't have to change much. -Probably.

Depends on the size, sort and details of the mini. Because of not doing commissions on purpose, i don't have a price list.

i'll email you the reference art and colors/ reference pictures immediately but I would say around the normal size of a Warhammer miniature Cleric.

All I need is the email and i'll send all the documents needed.
