Weta Workshop Sculptor’s Labyrinth Model

On a visit to effects studio Weta Workshop, Adam Savage meets and chats with artists who bring their own obsessions to their work. Sculptor Johnny Fraser-Allen, who is working on miniatures for Jim Henson’s Labyrinth board game, shares with Adam his own intricate maze miniature, which will end up being the size of an entire room!

  1. So cool! The guinea pigs are so neat. I love the sculpts. Reminds me a bit of The Autumnlands comic series put out by Image Comics. Magical anthropomorphic animals in a fantasy setting. It’s excellent.

  2. oh my friggin’ goodness how cool is all of that stuff? the character in these guinea pigs!

    i especially dig adam’s look whenever john putters off to fetch another piece, and another, and another.

  3. Oh wow! That looks so cool! I want to play! My neighbour and landlord is a big gamer, she would surely let me rent a room for this and we could play in the evenings!
    And I want blanks of these figures to paint too! Whee!

  4. The dream is to have an idea and then to just do it, and do it exactly as imagined. Only a few of us get that opportunity or even have the skills, but holy shamoly it’s great when it happens and things like this are the result.

  5. That is some awesome stuff he makes. I’ve only seen Labyrinth once or twice but the passion in the room was palpable.

    Coolest part for me was seeing the black and white screen in the background. We use the same ones over in Digi!

  6. That was so incredible. That is true passion in a project. Adam could hardly get any questions out when he just starts volunteering more and more information. This is the next best thing to a sequel as we could get. Simply amazing.

  7. I love how intensely passionate these people are, very inspiring. I wish we could have seen more, I’m certainly seemed that we were only just touching the surface of what this guy has in mind. I can’t wait to see where it takes us all. Kudos!

  8. I want ALL OF THE THINGS!!! As a reformed Games Workshop Warhammer 40k fan (since the Rogue Trader days), I would love to collect and play with alllllllllll of those Labyrinth pieces! The guinea pigs game looks and sounds great too!

  9. Great to see this, we actually advance ordered the Labyrinth game back in July and it was well worth the wait the quality is just fantastic. Also with the advanced order we got a clean poster of the board game art, again that my daughter has on her wall. Great to see the man behind both the figures and the art work.

  10. That is a man that loves his job. I would buy him a beer and just sit down and listen to him talk about his passion.
