You wanted him BIGGER??? :blink:

Well...yes.  ::P:

 

I wanted him to fall more in line with the height of the other big Bones demons and the proportions of arm length vs leg length were bothering me.  Also, this is my favorite of the Bones demons and I wanted him to be more impressive.  Don't get me wrong, I think the miniature is just fine as made but I just wanted more presence when he hits the table.  Also, this makes him a better size for use as a greater daemon in 40K if I feel inclined to use him for that.

Cool biggerized conversion!

I think the idea of lengthening the mace is a good one.

 

Please continue to resist the Hellboy hand idea, though.

The question with the mace is just make it long enough to be two handed or go full polearm length.  Probably going with two handed, so say three times longer than it is given that currently it's pretty short.

Went longer than I intended but may keep it this length anyway.  Need to decide what to do at bottom, might sharpen it to a spike. 

Material used:  carbon fiber tube with an aluminum rod inside it.

Ok, found a spike for the bottom.  Now just have to let it sit for a day or two to decide if I like the length or if I break out the hacksaw and take half an inch or so out of the length.

I would leave the length... it looks like it fits him and gives him that extra reach to thump his minions when he needs to!

I would cut some off, mainly to make the weapon more usable. If it is more like a staff, then it works, but if it is supposed to be a mace I would shorten it, so that the demon can swing it properly.

 

That said, this is an inspired conversion and I really like what you did with the legs. Adding wings and a tail is an excellent idea and I think making the horns more impressive would add even more awesomeness to the miniature.

Ermagerd!  He did some work on it!  Ok, so not much.  I did find some 80mm 'deep dish' bases so I glued him into that and am slowly building on it with greenstuff.  Also ripped the spike off the mace and am contemplating what to use as a but cap instead.  Probably find a bead.  Pics aren't best quality but I couldn't be bothered to dig out everything for a pretty minor update.

      Not sure if this belongs here or under conversions but since I need help/feedback on the sculpting, I figured here was better. 
       
      I am adding puffy sleeves to a figure and I am very much a novice when it comes to sculpting. I have been working on one and while it looks good to me, I need a second opinion. What do you guys think?

      This past week I painted the Female Devil "Tormentor" figure from the Bones 4 Bedeviled group from the Core Set.   During the run of the Kickstarter, there were folks in the Bones 4 Enthusiasm who where considering the possibilities of  converting the larger Rulers of Hell figure set into some sort of Forest King and Queen creatures by removing their wings and skull iconography.   With the cloven hooves and horns I could see how easily this could be done.  And, while I didn't get that set, I did get the smaller sized Bedeviled group that came in the Core Set.  Looking at the female figure in that set, it seemed to me that she too would be an easy conversion to make into some sort of Faun-like Forest Creature.

      Hi everyone, Now that the contest is over, here are more pictures of my converted 77038, Hell Hound. The original sculpt is by Ben Siens. This was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Convert and Paint contest. Khan is my elf riding dog in our D&D campaign. The contest was the perfect pretexte to make this conversion. I first removed all the spikes and flames on the hound's back. I then built the armor and saddle using green stuff and a paperclip. The chest is from Reaper's 02638, adventuring accessories. There were amazing entries in the contest and I managed to get an honorable mention. Thanks to Reaper miniatures and Matthew Clark for organizing this contest.

      While I love the Mossbeard Treeman figure from the Bones 4 Kickstarter, it always bothered me a little that his arms, as sculpted, grew from narrower at the shoulder to thicker at the wrist.  This just looked unnatural to me since both branches and arms tend to grow from thicker at the shoulders to thinner near the ends.
       

       
      So this week I began working n revering his arms, so they would connect to his body in a more natural, to my eye, arrangement.
       
      I began by slicing off the existing  external connector pegs.  This was made easier by soaking them in boiling water for 30-40 seconds (As Ed Pugh suggested to do with the Chicken Hut legs on a recent Reaper Live), after which it was a breeze to slice right through them.
       

       
       
      Test fitting.
       

       
      I then glued the pegs I had cut off back into the holes they were intended to go into to full those holes.  After the glue was set, I drilled some holes in the shoulder connections to peg them with sections of doweling.  After that, I glued the hands to the new wrist joints.  
       
      My next step is to blend the hands to the wrists  with some greenstuff, and then I'll glue the arms in place.

      I was excited to get the Stygian Barge Add-On from the recent Bones 4 Kickstarter, and I was not disappointed in the model when it arrived.  It is a truly beautiful and big ship.    However, I didn't necessarily want to use the barge in all its Stygian glory; it looked more like a Necromancer's yacht than anything else.  I wanted more of a plain everyday working barge.  I figured a plain barge would have much more game use than one specifically decked out in death-related motifs.  So, the first thing I set about doing was looking over the pieces to see just what removing all the skulls, etc. would involve.  With a little effort it seems like it just might work.
       
      The main conversions were to lay a wood deck over the bone-strewn central deck, remove the decorative skeletons on the awning posts, and the vertebrate from the main roof beam.  I also discarded the skeletal mermaid figurehead, and trimmed off most of the other decorative skulls.
        For the full conversion article, please see my blog: De-Necro-ing the Stygian Barge
