The NecroBard, Cyr's Lucky DSM Glitch


Recommended Posts

Using Devcon Home, 5 minute Epoxy, 1500 psi strength. 

 

Maybe I didn't get the proportions proper, or didn't swirl enough. It's frustrating. The nobs also want to distribute more of one than the other, but I was using a toothpick to swirl and tried to get the bits equal. 

 

I will be going over this joint with some green stuff too. Plan is to drill holes, pin one side and epoxy/glue, file around to smooth again, fit the arm onto the pin and epoxy/glue, green stuff to smooth it out. That is if the joints actually decide to hold.

I've never used that stuff. Try one of the three I suggested.

Potentially a tiefling, yeah. I think he could just be a magic'd up human too. 

 

The body is from the Male Necromancer in the Stephanie Law Kickstarter that fulfilled last month. I suspect they'll be making their way to the store in the next few months. The arm I'm gluing to him is from the Male Bard. 

 

I had their first goof up in Kickstarter fulfillment; I got two male necromancer bodies, one male necromancer arm, one male bard arm, zero male bard body. When they fixed it, they sent out a whole new male bard, both pieces. I figured I'd combine the spare bits into The Necrobard. 

 

My friend is getting very excited to make a gestalt character that is bard/wizard necromancer.... effectively My Chemical Romance. He seems to be going for a draining-death more than horde-of-zombies type, and keeping party buff spells but not party protection (because life is pain).

Okay pieces attached. This time super glue and green stuff. I'll be shopping for @ub3r_n3rd's epoxy stuff soon. 

 

I positioned the lute like this selfishly so I have a little bit of space to paint his chest. My excuse is "he's in process of bringing the lute into playing position. 

 

I agree with the DSM being fragile. My friend has been given strict instructions to treat this nicely.

Lookin' good and I greatly approve of the skull!!!!! :wow:

 

MOAR SKULLZ!!!!

 

I intend to paint a skull or something similarly emo-doom-like on the back of his lute. Because pain. 

 

... my friend is putting a lot of effort into remaking songs. I even bet him fine beverages if he can keep a straight face for an hour of roleplaying this character. He's usually a sarcastic turd who likes yanking peoples chains for amusement. This character is enthusiastic about apathy in life.

I love how this is going!  Got to say, though, that I've never had trouble with the 2 part epoxy like you've had, so maybe it was a bad batch or sat around for too long or something. 

 

Looking forward to seeing paint on this!

 

I've had the tube for less than a month. It did great for the rainbow fairy, and for the life of me, I have no idea what I did differently for her. 

 

The painting is going to be fun but difficult, if I want to get the Black Parade costume theme. Dark gray/black suit with white trim, pale skin, and bleach blonde hair. When I paint the actual necromancer he'll be more classic. This guy? He's got a theme to go with.

      Some may have seen it in the Facebook Group already, but I am working currently on a spelunking diorama that is a study in OSL. My first serious attempt at OSL it turned out to be a daunting and mindbending affair. I established the base colours and lighting via airbrush and then went back in with brush. Still a few things to fix, but it is getting there.

      I did this conversion for a contest.  I think he fills the role fairly well.  I removed his sword and the pistol in his belt (it was a bit miscast and had no detail.)

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
       
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

       
      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
       
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.

      I hope this one gets re-implemented in Bones USA.  Very cool, fun and funny model.  The quality of the model wasn't so great, unfortunately.
      On the bright side though:  I knew she needed a pink hair!  And a pink hair was really asking for bright green armor and purple vest! 🙂

      Overview
       
      I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back.
       
      The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting.
       

      The original figure; this is the backup.
       

      The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green.
       

      You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later.
       

      There are no visible gaps on the outside.
       

      The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll
      just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield.
       

      The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.
