"Looking good Dana, you get a really good sense of scale in this pic as you are stood next to it. Interestingly, the Frankenweine Puppets are the same size. I think it's a really good size to work to (approx 30cm). "

Armatures look great, just ordered two ball joints to check size against a few of my sculpts, looking forward to getting them. Great work!

They have been posted. Joints can be filed/ground down to make thinner etc. We are currently working on a range of sizes so watch out for them. 

Cheers,

Wes
