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 my first complete kitbash, this one is made of parts from five different kits. I've made it to be used as a ranger for my Rangers of Shadowdeep warband. Hope you like it!

      Metal Centaur Archer. Pretty happy with outcome. What do you think?

      This is Bombshell Miniatures Fa'o the Cat Huntress (SKU 10049).  Fun figure, painted to tabletop standard.  Another one off the partially painted pile.

      Finally managed to get a mini off my shelf of shame.
       
      This guy belongs to one of my players the he had asked me to paint up back in 2017. The tunic was kind of a joke, but we decided to run with it. Last game session, he had used the bathroom and everyone was giving him a rough time about needing to have to repaint my bathroom given how long he was in there, and the fact that no one else could use it for the next hour. As suggestions of color schemes were being thrown out, one player suggested pearlescent green. I wasn't too thrilled with that, but it said how about a pearlescent cream color, which made me think of Sophie Champange. So, I grabbed the bottle, gave it a quick shake, put some on my pallette, and showed it off. It didn't seem too appealling on a white pallette, so I grabbed this players mini off the table and slapped a bit on the tunic. The owner of the mini said he really liked the color, so here we go after toning it down a bit with some Agrax Earthshade.

      Presenting Theron, a captain in the Hunters Guild team in the game of Guild Ball by Steamforged Games, and that's about all I know about this one.
       
      Quite pleased with this one, had fun painting all the stitching and other doodads.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
