*love* the progress you've made! All the wonderful details really stick out now. The contrast between the two will be wonderful when he's finally mounted on his bird.

Thanks!

That will likely happen for a test fit soon

Better than I had actually hoped!

So here are some test fit shots....

Actual assembly is going to be a horror, as the 2 legs attaching to the mount, 2 points of reins to the chicken, and the other end in his hand, for a total of 5 points that all need to match.... Going to need 5 arms...

 

I managed to crack a piece, luckily managed to fix it before it got lost for ever....

 

Here is the damage I did during the test fit...

So assembly was the nightmare I expected.

 

Ended up having to use the dremel to file down the contact points on the inside of the Chief's boots.

I gave up trying to match up all 5 contact points for glueing as well.

Mounted him on the Chicken (you guys can hold the jokes, I heard them all on the hangout....)

and when he was in a place I thought looked right, went in with a long straight pin as my applicator for the super glue.

After letting that cure for 30 minutes, I touched up the scratches quickly and sprayed everything with dullcote.

 

When that dried, I spent a while trying to maneuver the reins into place...

Finally ended up cutting them, and putting them on as 2 separate parts, trimming them little by little to get them to fit...

 

Got a little glue where it wasn't supposed to be, but another coat of dullcote took care of that.

Now I need to paint all the attachment points, and look for oopsies....

 

Bunch of pics to look at:

Also put a mix of Apoxie Sculpt and Greenstuff (50%) onto the base and used my new Happy Seppuku stamp to texture it.

Original PAM cooking spray made an excellent mold release agent!

(For Science!)

 

Comments and critiques welcome!

 

Thanks Hangout Crew!

He looks great!

 

Yeah, getting the reins attached is a nightmare, mine ended up rein-less 'cause I broke them into too many pieces manoeuvring them into place.

SPECTACULAR! You did a TERRIFIC job on what looks to be a difficult piece. It's going to be WONDROUS to behold all based up. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Thanks everyone!

 

It was a real PITA to get him together with the chicken....

 

expecting lots of comments for that! ::o:

 

 

Now to fix stuff and do the base!

 

Need to scrub the PAM off with Simple green when I get home, prime it, and start figuring out what to put on it....

 

Thinking a tree stump, some rocks, tufts etc....

 

open for ideas as well!

      The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey.  Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
      I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
      The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys.
      Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos.

      On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 core set.
       

      The Pillar of Evil to the left, the Pillar of Good to the right.
      They are made in the older Bonesium PVC material, and as you can see it shows. No amount of the hot water trick is going to correct that warped listing there. I have not seen the metal versions so I cannot compare them with the Bones or even say that the metal ones do no list in the same way (though I doubt that they do.)
       

      I would have thought it be more fitting if these came as a pair of each and not just one of each, but there we are. They are sold as single packs in retail anyway.

      These are from the subset "Grave things" in the Bones 4 Core set. Listing again! I was unsuccessful in trying to unbend the batty one as it bent back over time. Should have left it longer in the hot water. Oh well.

      Again, they should have come in a pairs of each.
       

      It seems Bones really is not the best material for boxes with square corners and all that...must be that corrupting influence of the Warp.

      This one is OK and untainted by the warp though. The loose books are a nice touch.

      Tiny glyphs and imaginary writing that looks much better (and way more impressive) when not magnified, as does most of my painting. The page is actually about 10mm wide. The black symbols and all that are done with .01mm and .02mm pens.

      klatoo...berata....nih*cough cough* Ok, then, thats it! *takes book, thunder rumbles* Hey wait a minute!  I said the words! I did!

      What is evil, yet cute? a KICKSTARTER that's what.

      From WizKids' line of Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures comes the "Treant", which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer.
      I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely.
      And seeing as I have been painting undead halflings and there is a strong historic connection between Halflings and Treemen as allies; so undead treeman.
      Hence,  Torchwood the Furious here.
