Studio Miniatures Norm (Daryll)


First up off the paint bench in a while is Norm from Studio miniatures aka Daryll Dixon. This is a lovely sculpt I really like how the crossbow has been cast. My only issue with it was the straps either snapped off or didn't cast properly and I didn't notice upon arrival from the Kickstarter that was done a couple of years ago. I've replaced it with some paper fold in half then trimmed to the right width then coated in superglue.





I hope to finish get another couple done from the kickstarter as I am enjoying the current season of the Walking Dead.

  4. A wonderful miniature, not only because of the pose, but he also looks like a very clean cast.
    You did a great paintjob on him too.

    1. Thanks very much. Yeah the casting was pretty good tbh it was just the straps not casting or perhaps they were damaged at some point as I can't imagine them being very thick.

    1. I am trying my utmost hardest but thankfully I have probably most the cast in metal already so its a bit easier in that regard.

    1. Thanks Michael. I am glad it work out as well. I must remember to use paper in the future as I have some conversions planned that require some packs adding.
