Finally I'm done! Had started this earlier this year, but got a bit delayed by the Sir Forscale competition. I blame/thank ReaperBryan for getting me involved in it, it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot about what I was able to do. After that was the busy Hallowe'en season, and since then there's been some personal issues preventing me. But I managed to buckle down and got it done, so I'm happy with that. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69726-it-caaaaame-from-the-ddm-pit-harbinger-set-skeleton-pic-heavy/ So here it is, paired with one of the original miniatures to show the contrast: Sorry for the brightness of the pictures. All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome. While I wish I had more time and patience to work on the bones themselves, I just wanted it done. I learned a lot through the experiments I put this one through, and on the last day I even started using a homemade wet palette. Quite pleased with it, I'll be using it a lot more. When I saw the dynamic pose of the skeleton I thought it was too good not to use it in some way, hence the stepping over the log. Not sure if I'll start on another DDM miniature that I have ready, or start on some of my Bones backlog. Time will tell, I suppose. Hope you enjoy it all!
It's me again! After my semi-successful bout with the DDM Baaz Draconian, I decided to pick out another victim subject to experiment some more techniques and paints on. Aaaand let's see what's behind Door Number Two!: What we have here are two DDM Harbinger set Skeletons. The one on the left is for reference, while the one on the right has already been primed. Not a bad lot for what it was used for, but they completely missed the paint on the face of the latter one. Though they're interesting figures, for skeletons they look a bit too.......shiny. Sure, they could be newly stripped corpses, but what's the likelihood of that? And why would you keep perfectly good armour on such easily destroyed mooks? Let's see if we can make him look as neglected as those miniatures on your Shelf of Shame!
OK, just so everyone knows, this is the Harbinger... I didn't paint this or assemble it. I just like the picture so everyone can have an idea of what I have to work with and what the miniature is intended to look like. Also, this is in the 26mm scale. Here's my idea for the conversion. I'm going to lose the banner and banner pole, the sword, and probably the shoulder pads as well. I want the figure to have her arms raised high, both hands on a sword held above her head, with the point straight up to the heavens. That's not the hard part though. The hard part I need help with is this: I want to use a piece of crystal, glass or plastic for the sword. I want to run a small fiber optic cable from the hilt of the sword to and LED, and I want to connect that LED to a batter so that I can make the sword glow FOR REAL! Additionally, where should I go to purchase these sorts of paraphenelia? This will be my first time playing with this kind of thing and I was hoping that all the people here could help me out. Ahead of time let me say, "Thanks for the help, I'm gonna need it!"
