As I continue to learn airbrushing, I've been experimenting with some larger minis. This Bones Griffin was one of the minis I sent in the Summer Mini Exchange. Everything except for the eyes, beak, and claws used the airbrush. Even the wash was sprayed on using the airbrush which took a couple of tries to get he mix right. I've had this metal Huge Spider sitting around for many years so I finally decided to give it a go. In hindsight, I wish I would have painted the parts first then put it together. I only used a traditional brush on the eyes. Lastly is Cadirith the Demonic Colossal Spider. And this ting is truly Colossal. It's base is about the same size as a CD (remember those). Again, I really wish I would have painted it before I put it together. Airbrishing around the legs all assembled was a nightmare and I think I would have done more striping if it was pre-assembled. I used a traditional brush on the eyes, bones, and spikes.
I need some advice from the Bones repositioners/modifiers out there. I currently have Cadirith (with another on the way) that I am planning on modifying in to an Arachnarok Spider for Age of Sigmar. I've already figured out how to make and attach the Howdah to carry the goblins. The question I have is the best way to reposition the legs. They come in 4 sets of two and and are basically either parallel to each other or overlapping. What would be the best way to get some separation between the legs? Boil and reposition? Cut and angle and glue? My concern with the boiling would be bending the tabs out of position so they wouldn't seat flush anymore. And for cutting, where? At the joint where the join the body or at one of the joints on the legs? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has trouble understanding my rambling train of thought, I can take some pictures if needed.
