77278 x2: Sharkmen

Recommended Posts

So i have two of these guys, and I'm modifying one to give it a bit of a different look

 

I used a base from 80038: Bathalian Centurion for a shield, and cut off the shark tooth and glued it to an arm from 62111: Numenera: Erynth Grask i had laying about after a modified exchange mini and made a improvised axe

 

i did a bit of green stuff additions to the shield for a fish skeleton

 

color wise i'm not certain what to do just yet. I want patterns...i'm thinking a whale shark for the improvised guy, maybe a tiger or bamboo shark for the other

Notches on the fin as well?  Seems like something warrior sharks would have.  

 

Yea i think i'll trim the size down and then add scaring to him. I'm liking hte modifications quite a bit actually, even more than the original he's next to =P he so works with a shield

sliced off the back of his fin and glued/green stuffed it to his axe for a serrated bone handle.

Stuck a spear through his fin because why not.

Added some chain/kelp/sea shell bands to his ankle and tail

Well looks like we know the veteran from the raw recruit.

 

aye. He'll be a great white color i think, and either tiger shark or whale shark for his trainee

Leopard Shark is a real thing...

 

Also..Google prehistoric Sharks and you'll see some nice artwork.

Maybe some alternate patterns there.

 

I love the modifications.

      While waiting for the  Dark Depths expansion from Bones 5, I got a little into the nautical theme. After being some example of the shark from the WizKids deep cuts line. While gap filling with green stuff, I decided that just painting the shark would be boring. So I sculpted a really basic tail and magnetised it. Sure the tail is really basic and I am missing a couple of the smaller fins, but it does work for its intended purpose. 
       
      If I ever decide to return to this project, I may make a transparent base that would hold the shark off the ground. Allowing it to double as either a jumping shark or a swimming one.

      I got this one printed out in FDM from a kickstarter.
      In hindsight I should have chosen resin, it did help me decide to go for a resin printer myself.
      The printlines are visible and it's rough, I even used putty to smooth things out where I could.
       
      All in all a nice sculpt though.

      I picked up some of the Cmon Wrath of kings Hadross pit fighters cheaply, and have painted a couple of test models. I am not sure about the scheme but will keep at it. 
       
      The bases don't show up well but I poured Mod Podge (the relief one) into an upside down Reaper plastic base. The product is a lot thinner than mod podge and it is hard to 'sculpt'. Will have a think about how to make these more dramatic.
