primeval Posted April 24, 2004 Author Share Posted April 24, 2004 (edited) Words you should never say where your greenstuff can hear you, for in its evilness it will seek to thwart your plans: "Chainmail can't be that hard to do." Geez, first off I laid out the kilt and made sure I had roughly the size and shape made out before I put it on the barbarian. I thought I had the thickness even all around as well. But once I started creating the holes in the mail, it became apparent that I did not have even thickness, so some holes are deeper than others. I also tried to create a regular pattern to make it look like rows of links, but with the way I had the kilt laid I didn't manage to pull that off either. Oh well, live and learn; it was my first attempt at this. The wash I gave it was to try and see what I had to work with before basecoating. I went with the split front after looking at some Frazetta Death Dealer paintings. If it looks terrible when I paint it (and the more I look at it I think it will) then I will just go back and get more greenstuff out and go over it to make it a cloth kilt and say "I meant to do that". The horn on the rhino got a spearhead from an old skeleton I had already butchered for its skull, and the cap is greenstuff with a rune carved into each side. Anyway, here is the finished conversion - on to the painting! Edit: Okay, I have been sitting here looking this over and that does not look like chainmail. If I paint it in metallics it will look like a sheet of metal with some holes in it. So, I will have to put a very thin layer of greenstuff over it and make it cloth or fur. I have been wanting to give someone a tiger-skin kilt/loincloth... Edited April 24, 2004 by primeval Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
