Top designer Alligator Descartes, who has created some amazing Crucible figures based on designs by Smuzz for the eponymous comic story which you can read on Tapastic, will be giving a talk at Satellite 5, a Glasgow SF convention, this weekend, talking about the the 3D models and how they were made.

Guests at the event include authors Jaine Fenn and Ed Buckley.

The eventual aim in creating these figures is to make them available for sale. Watch this space, as they say!
