77036 Devona, modded

Recommended Posts

One of my players fell in love with the Devona model, but she's playing an archer.  So I whipped out the selection of alternate weapons from Bones 3, and here we go:

Removing the staff portions from the center of her hand took a lot of ticklish work with an exacto knife.  The glue is setting right now.  I want to give it plenty of time to set -- I'm worried about the bow coming off later.  I didn't see any way to pin it given the bow's lack of any particular thickness to drill into on the horizontal plane.

 

Any suggestions for ensuring the bow stays in place are welcome!

Cool Idea. Might I suggest lowering her arm so it looks more natural? You can probably swing that with boiling and ice, no greenstuff involved :)

To keep the bow in place, pin it.

With Bones, no need to pin. Superglue will hold it just fine.

Here she is fresh out of the frigidarium:

There, that's a somewhat more natural pose.  You can still see the water around her feet -- oh well, it'll dry.  I'm pleased that the superglue held up to about 30 seconds of immersion in boiling water.  I hope the bond hasn't weakened.

 

The player whose mini this is has asked to paint it herself -- I just handled the modding bit.  So I don't know if this WIP will be updated any further.

      So this is the test figure for my orc warband for frostgrave and mordhein (WIP thread here)
       
      I like the palette so far and I'm happy how this guy turned out. I will post other minis as I paint them. Cheers!

      Good evening everybody!
      So have been doing lately a lot of classic Julie Guthrie from her Partha days and the last one I've finished is what is currently listed as an Archer, but that previously came in a set of three Rangers in her Partha Line "All Things Dark and Dangerous".
       
      Being he's these days called an archer, I kind of deviated from the typical browns and greens as I kind of wanted some deeper, darker colors. I started off with his lavender shirt and then just kept going with different plums and purples. So he's not too nature-like but he's maybe a moon or night ranger.
       
      Anyway, hope you enjoy him!
       

       
      and here's that image he originally came from back in the eighties.  I've got the two guys done, I'm working now on the gal with the staff, hope to have her done before Memorial day is over:

      Good evening everybody!
      Just finished this one up last night and got pictures taken this afternoon.  This one is an old school Julie Guthrie model from her Ral Partha All Things Dark and Dangerous days. Can't say if it was originally just an archer or a ranger, but she's definitely an archer and it doesn't take much imagination to make her a ranger as well.   As always, colors gave me fits, but with the thought she was a ranger, I wanted mostly greens and browns, with some pops of colors (like her lavender money bag and her red sword hilts).  The hardest choice on this lovely lady was the color choice for her gloves. I finally gave up and painted her with a light green (the same green that I'm using for the interior of a cloak on my next figure).  So anyway, I took a bunch of angles of her, hope you like her!

      Good day everyone, In the wait of playing Scourge of the Howling Horde adventure, I recently painted these two nuisances. Inspired by Anne Foerster work displayed in Reaper's Online Store, I went with the classical orangish skin tone and dark leather color. I also added war paints on their face and limbs. 07003 Dungeon Dwellers Bloodbite Goblins sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
