wbill, depends on the size of the Lobster, harhar! Guys hellebard seems to have the right length ´caus I guess, in this world, Lobsters are a bit bigger than in ours... So it is Armor cracking time (sorry for this Guy, but I hope, you get what I want to say: develish smile here, harhar!).
Looks great so far, I see you are the same detailfanatic like me. Rocking good!

Casting yourself? We should team up! I have similar plans and ideas for doing so (maybe I will sculpt further projects with this in mind...). The figure rocks man, so much, but PUT OF THOSE NIPPLES, AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!! I love the toady skin structure on arm and belly (but you haven´t done on the legs? Or is he wearing some kind of trousers, put into the boots?)
As a non-sculpty person, it's been interesting to see what goes into putting something like this together and if I'm honest I wasn't sure what to think of the concept when you first came up with it...but I'll apologise now for doubting you!!
You've been steadily convincing me as you've gone along and I'm really looking forward to how this turns out!!
Keep up the good work.

Cheers mate, let me have an idea (yeah, I know, that stupid German blubbing around. Keep cool, Dude!): The idea is because of the muscles on his breast. I have done some pumping iron years ago and the male breast becomes a bit rounded on the top side (do not laugh, guys, not the rounds of a womans boob, means, as long as you do not take some, ahem, steroids and stuff like that!) The breast of unca Toady is a bit "too flat", when you see what I mean. OK, I fear you will skin me alive now a) for pressing you to remove the nipples and b) now going even further for having "bigger and rounder boobs".
Frank, of course thank you too feller ! No skinning at all, I'm glad you try to help me and every comment is from the helping kind. I didn't want to give Mr. Toad the look of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his better days, I should have to redo his entire body then. But I know what you mean when you speak of rounded on the top sides. I want to add some sort of shoulder protection/clothing like fur or a combination of them (most likely that).
Just before finishing up the buckle...

You mean you will cover the breast with some sort of shouder pad? Sounds very interesting! All in all, this figure will be rocking good! But to keep you on the carpet: The head will make it count totally! Nothing comic like, nothing cartoon like, only high detailed grim naturalism, with scars and warts and evil eyes. What do you think of on one-eyed toady (a big scar through one eye, could make him even more grim!)
And remember: All ideas and "critics" are from my heart!!
Frank Meister, I'll do my best, I want to start sculpting the head soon, that's why I already began sculpting the right shoulder and upper arm. I sent him to the gym for a muscles workout and now he looks much more powerful I think. The halberd was completed with a right toad's hand and a bit of decoration but I will make a pic of that job later.
