Thrym posted a topic in Works In ProgressHEY HO! I'm back ... sort of. Things are finally starting to wind down at work. I haven't had my new employee start yet (July 5th) but we're hitting the slow season. New work will continue to come in but the pile-on won't be there. So, while I have a couple of projects sitting on the shelves ... Thrym's WIP List ... I did receive my Bones 3 order and feel the need to replace the Reaper in Talisman with a much more WORTHY version. For those that don't recall or have never seen the Reaper in Talisman ... here's a version: Plain jane Reaper. Which is fine. BUT ... my poor fellow is just a little tipsy: I specifically tilted him on his new base but he's still listing quite to the side. So time for an upgrade! One of the issues I have with Bones in general is Weight. They need a little metal shot or something in the middle of them for weight. Anyway, I started resolving this by adding the weight to the base of the mini. But this is the REAPER of all the LANDS of TALISMAN! He needs something significant. So, i am showing him with a partial column behind him and will continue the bone pile he comes with around him using the skulls and pieces @ub3r_n3rd and i bought in on. Here's the start: The partial column is made from cork rounds I cut down to a particular slice and stacked with a support wire through to the bottom and super glue between each slice. I plan to soak the cork with some diluted white glue and then spray the whole thing with Dullcote to seal it. I think I will be adding the one of the shields from the various Bones weapons kits to the column. It's down to a toss up between: Of course, your first thought is ... duh, Grave. But, the second one is just as creepy as a piece of the column. Especially if you are a Doctor Who fan these days. With the skulls and bones littering the ground, I think the Virtue one might be the better route. But ... Grave. Duh! Hit me with your thoughts! Since the Lord of Death is standing on a tilted grave stone, I will add at least a partial one somewhere I think also leaning. There you go, the layout of the project and concept. Enjoy and stay tuned!
After a lot of work and patience ... not to mention delays for surgery and rehab ... I present to you: The Old Way A diorama display base made from a cork mat (coaster, under plants, hot pad). If you followed the WIP then you know the story behind the piece but here's a revised summary ... "The Old Way â€¦ that road found in post-apocalyptic, fantasy societies that the current society has no clue how they made it. Once the road way in this piece was created by such builders that it lasted for millennia. At least until the water changed course and eroded the road bed and shifted the land. Now there are only small reminders of the once great society in a wondrous slice of creek bed." And a recap of what went into it ... The foundation are two cork rounds atop MDF. The land is made with more cork added to create the higher points. Ground red foam foliage surrounds a sculpted tree stump. A small pool of water sits atop the small hillock jutting into the creek. Flagstone pavers still remain clustered together for strength showing the shards of the Old Way. The creek bed is made from actual sand and the flora and moss in the water is more ground foam. Realistic Water covers the creek bed and pool of water. Now for photos ... Top views ... Close ups of the creek bed ... As always I appreciate any comments or suggestions and would be happy to answer any questions regarding the piece.
A new creation in the works ... Dragon Eye 4" long by 2" wide and made from driftwood oak. The piece was found like this. So far I've painted the "lash" with Reaper Black Ink and the "Iris" with Reds and Oranges as well as the Black Ink. A gloss coat covers the iris. Plan to build up the iris in gloss layers to give it some depth. Teak Oil finish.
THE BATTLE OF THE CHAMPIONS Figures: Unarmored Hordesman & Armored Hordesman Manufacturer: Red Box Games Base: WoldStand Material: Trollcast (Resin) WIP Thread Located here. Here's the Gallery to see what everyone did Here's the Poll - Vote for your top 3 and only vote one time. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- They stood staring each other down in the middle of the bloody and muddy battlefield, rain pouring and slicking everything in sight. The two champions, their armies spread out behind them screaming at the tops of their lungs. The champions covered in blood and gore from those pathetic fools who had stood before them. It came down to this, to this one moment in time... to this last battle between them to decide the war... They circled each other slowly, sized each other up. The axes-wielding champion, calculating and calm, takes a deep breath, looks over to the large rock to his right and grins wickedly to himself. The armored champion raises his weapon and plays to his crowd of warriors, supremely confident in his opponent's impending demise. Suddenly, they both rush forward with blood curdling war-cries to their gods to do battle! This was a really fun project which I am entering into the RBG contest over on the WAMP forum and it is being sponsored by Tre Manor himself. Thank you to everyone in the WIP thread for giving me honest feedback and great ideas, I used a lot of them on these figures and couldn't have done it without you. Special thanks goes out to Thrym as he supplied me with the awesome base from his new online store called "WoldStand." Comments and Critiques are welcomed and appreciated! ETA: Collage for the Contest that Thrym was nice enough to help me with.
