Today we bring you an interview with Tim Spakowski. The founder of Special Artisan Service Miniatures, Tim is—in more then one sense of the word—a veteran. He’s been the driving force behind SASM for three years, and, before that, he toured Iraq in a Personal Security Detachment. Now, with SASM a part of the War Banner family, I spent a little time chatting with Tim to learn more about him and his miniatures.
Hello, I’m Steve and I’m the chief sculptor at Lucid Eye, a company I set up with my son, Joe. I also freelance for other companies, including War Banner.
In this article I shall take you through the process which I used to sculpt King Rædwald, and I hope it gives you some insight into how I sculpt.
Now I prefer to sculpt in a smaller scale; the challenge presented by creating such tiny sculpts excites me and inspires me to grow and develop. I now work exclusively in 20 to 28mm.
