2nd attempt at creating a steam-punk elephant-women mad-scientist, representing a PC in a game I am running. Since such a model does not exist I made one.
It consists of the following parts:
The base model I had printed through HeroForge I pinched the cables and coils from a warmachines model I found on ebay. Finished it off with some lightning I had laying around from the previous attempt (I think it was creating action figure dioramas, but I have thrown out the packaging long ago). Nothing on the model is Reaper, but I painted it with Reaper Paints.
I had a lot of fun trying out all kinds of configurations with poster tack until settling on this combination for the rigging. The only thing it is missing is her faction symbol on the shield, but I wasn't sure how to make a stencil small enough. If any has any technique for adding coat of arms to a models, outside of trying to free hand it, I would to hear it. Here are a few pictures. The other model is for scale, and is just what I had handy.
I bought in on the Kickstarter for the board game, Planetarium.
It's a great game and the family loves it. But we want real planets to spin around the sun.
So, I have taken it upon myself to make some. I know, shocking.
Here's the game:
The game came with slotted stands for upright cardboard tokens for the planetoids. But they are flat and hard to see on the board if parallel to your view.
Where to start?
First and quickest thought was to take a ping pong ball or four and just paint the planetoids on them as seen in the tokens. But where's the fun with that.
Besides, I wouldn't be Thrym if I didn't use bark or some other basing material. Here we go!
Ping pong balls ... close:
These are "Practice" Golf Balls available at my local non-Dollar Tree dollar store. They come apart ... so expect to see them again! WOOT!
But, the first one I want to make is going to a version of Planet B a turquoise colored planetoid.
Shown above and here in the Player Mat:
So, I started with the mini-wiffleball and glued small pieces of bark to it.
And then spray primed it gray:
Enjoy and Stay Tuned!
