Ishoo Forty-Nin: Sinister Hippo Sphinx

There are some shapes which just cannot be made from foamcore. Sometimes you just have to get creative and carve things from polystyrene. Such is the case with the Sinister Hippo Sphinx; it's a quick and simple introduction to the world of carving polystyrene. It's easy to build, and it looks... well sinister. How easy you ask?
Cue Grot!

And there you are! Remember when sanding polystyrene to always wear a dust mask - the dust is all pervasive and really nasty stuff.
Well, that's about it until next ishoo... holy freaking hippo spit! Next Ishoo is Ishoo Fifty! Guess we'll have to do something special!


  1. Hippo Sphinx, I laughed my butt off when I seen it, excellent execution.

  2. Egad, it looks just like the real-life hippo sphinxes. Good work!

  3. While i have no need for this in any way. I must say that it is the single coolest piece of terrain ever hahah.

    1. Need has nothing to do with it. It's all a matter of want. Surely you WANT the single coolest piece of terrain ever?
