Assembled and gap filled and modified!

 

I'm about 12 hours into this project now. 

 

Next up is to allow everything to cure and then wash off with warm soapy water to remove mold releases and finger oils. Then I'll prime everything at the same time.

 

 

The Heroines! Yay!!! :winkthumbs:

An idea occurred last night while talking to Thrym about my project plans. 

 

I am going to cut the demon in half at the waist and have him half-formed coming up from the 9 hells in the summoning circle with flames and smoke issuing forth and surrounding him. 

 

Giving it more a feel of motion, danger, dynamics, and drama. 

 

I'm also trying to decide on the layout so it's compact but not crowded and not so large that things get lost or it's too big to fit in my painted figs carry case.

If anyone else wants help planning dioramas, etc. please feel free to hit me up on social media or ping me for help on here.  The new @membername feature is nice for getting people's attention.

 

I may not have a lot of time to work on my projects but it's not really a huge thing to chat on instant messengers apps about stuff.

 

Back to the WIP!

Would be cool too to rework the smaller set of arms so that they are bent, elbows up and palms on the floor as if he's pushing himself up.

Yeah! I may have to either heat and reposition or cut and reposition. Will look at it tonight. ::D:

Just wondering why the paladin is holding the sword that way...

I looks to me like she is going to try and stab something with it as if it was a dagger....

Other than that, 

Lloth's blessing upon the project!

It reminds me of the original Conan the Barbarian movies where he shows off and goes through different movements with his sword. 

 

I liked the sword and that the hand was a left hand so I went through with the conversion even if it looks a tad bit off or odd. Think of it as her swinging and reversing grip in the middle of a dramatic battle. :;):

 

Thanks for the blessings of the spider queen!

 

ETA:

If everyone doesn't like the paladin's new sword I can still go with something else. I'm up for suggestions.

After thinking about it for the last few days, I realized that George hit the nail on the head for me with regards to the paladin's modification. I wasn't 100% happy with the angle of the sword and how big it is in relation to the figure itself. So, a few moments ago I snipped the sword off and am putting a different sword on it with a different pommel. Right now I'm looking through my bits box to find the right pommel with the blade already attached.

 

Thanks for pointing it out to me, George!

Here's the new sword, it looks better in scale and still has the decorative elements I was after.

 

Working with such tiny pins and bits is very tough to do! I'll wash it off and prime all of them today. I'm also going to cut the demon off at the waist as the more I think about that summoning up from the 9 hells surrounded by smoke and fire, the more I like it. This will also take some more modifications for the lower set of arms, so I'll cut them off and re-position so it looks like he's climbing up as Andy suggested.

Thoughts thus far?

Here we go, cut the demon in half at the waist as I said I was going to do and repositioned both lower arms to give him the dynamics of motion that he was struggling to be summoned and pull himself up out of the nine hells.

I love what you're doing here in all regards except one.

 

The paladin's grip on her shield is wonky.  That's how you either a). Hold a buckler, or b) throw a shield.  A kite shield should be flat against her forearm...unless she is going to have an enemy ripping her shield off her arm, or an ally helping her put on her shield.

Thank you. 

 

This particular shield I really liked for its design elements. The design is vertical and it looked strange to me when I tried to align it where it would be turned to be strapped to her arm. I'll look at kite shields a bit closer as I still have time to modify it or even change out the shield for one that may fit her arm better.

Kite Shield:

You have the option of orienting the shield with the long axis pointing toward the ground or elbow.

 

Heater Shield

Based on the the size of that shield, and the paladin's cloak, you could probably make the current shield work with a minor modification.

After feedback about odd shield placement. I found a shield that actually matches the sword and attached to the right arm with superglue and then I used some green stuff to sculpt the leather straps that her arm would go through and hand would hold onto while fighting. 

 

I think it looks a lot better and I'm happier with this shield as the matching is good for my OCD!

 

What do you all think?

      Finally , closing that project..was fun and learn quite a bit doing it.

    • By LarsM
      Been working on this project for some time now, and hoping to get it done for a local competition in september.
      Still a lot to do, but I'm mostly happy with what I have made so far..
      I bought a bits-box with loads of Wahammer bits, and decided to try and sculpt a bigger tyranid out those bits, as a maine character for the scene. I find the sculpting as fun as the painting..and well, the Warhammer stuff seems rather expensive.
      I know nothing of the Warhammer 40K world, so it also been fun reading and researching for stuff.
       
      This will be a scene in the Wahmmaer 40K world. Three tau XV25's and one drone (not pictured) are behind enemy lines, and attack some sort of Tyranid base..
       
      First two pictures a finished minis, A Tau XV25 (its a battle-suit with a 'tau-person' inside), and a small tyranid.
       
      Next is the big tyranid, grey stuff is from the bits box, light-brown is Fimo sculpting clay and green is green-stuff. It is mostly done, but need a bit of grinding a maybe a few more details. The tail is going to end into next picture, where the tau is in big trouble (or is he?). The tau is painted, but the tail is just sculpted and a few strokes of priming.
      The part where the tail is shot to pieces is made of small pieces of fishing line, white-glue and sculpting paste. I glued the fishing line more or less randomly in place with super-glue-gel, super glue to hold the two pieces of tail in place. Covered everything with water thinned white-glue. put on some blobs af sculpting paste and covered everything in water-thinned white glue again.
       
      Last pictures is the base, mostly just primed. The tau's are attacking from the left side of the first picture, and the small tyranid will be lurking in the cave.
       
      Feel free to suggest, critiq and comment on anything, thanks for looking.

      I have been kicking around an idea of combining #50188 Sleeping Beauty and #03600 Praying Paladin in a mini diorama.. I have even gotten so far as to open their blisters and prime the paladin..
      Then, tonight, I had an Idea!  See, last year when my kids and I were playing Frostgrave, I backed a kickstarter for some resin scenery .  As per usual, however, by the time the scenery arrived, they had lost interest in Frostgrave.
      Combined with some iffy casts, I had put the box off to the side under my desk and forgotten about it..  until tonight, that is..
       
      What we now see here was billed as a watchtower hill, but looks like a potential mausoleum.. 

       
      Add a saddled horse, maybe a couple of other party members, and "Bob's your uncle!"
       
      I'm going to need to invest in some green stuff to clean up the cast for the 'table' top where the pillars connect as they're way off at the moment..

       
      Alternatively, I have a 'ruined palace' that might work as well.. 
       
       
      The second won't need as much cleanup or modification to work, also leaving the watchtower for a dragon or something to perch on at some point as well.. 
       
      decisions, decisions..

      Here my latest work. I keep trying and trying with black: highliting black. I tried with blue for a while till I was quite happy with it, and now I’m trying with grey which is more difficult... it does show here, since it completely reads as grey skin but oh well, it’s still a job I’m happy with. 
      That’s Be’lakor, one of the finest demon figures ever made by any manufacturer. First chaos everchosen, first mortal to ascend to demonhood, blessed and cursed, the lord of the dark...

      Something I painted for a friend. This is tiefling #2 of 5 so far. Hoping that before he starts the new campaign that players may pick as their characters.  
       
      A short work in progress can be found on my just for fun blog/website EYEDAMAGEART
