Sophie summons the Book Golem

Recommended Posts

So, the other day, I had one of those ideas that spring into my head full formed.  I had been discussing a golem made out of books on a Facebook DM page, and saw someone ask for a Book Golem in the KS comment (i think it was David Brawley but I'm not wading through the comments to make sure).

 

So with this on my mind I suddenly knew what it would look like.  And I wanted to have someone summoning one.  And who better than our bibliophile Sophie?

 

The idea is to have her in the foreground perfoming the summoning.  Behind her will be a bookcase (or two depending on how I need to valence thing out) with a stream of books flying off the shelves taking shape into the golem.  I may add some scrolls and such as well if needed.

 

I started making the books tonight.  I'll be trying out several methods as I will need multiple varieties.

Here are 12 books using wood and card board

And here is our heroine along with a picture of the materials used so far.  Craft stick and cardboard from a blister pack.  Reduce, reuse recycle!

Neat idea!  How do you plan on making the books fly off the shelves? 

 

Black Cat Bases make a Book Golem, if you want to save yourself a little of the work...

The business end of one of its club-like appendages should be an enormous Holy Book. That way...



...it can be, in a very real and literal sense...



...a Bible Thumper.

Well, now I feel a little less original! ::P:

 

Still doing it though.  As to the flying books, I figure a wire, with the books attached (either glued to the wire or with the wire running through books).  Want to represent the golem in the middle of forming so you will be able to see the shape, but chunks will be missing.

 

We will have to see how well I pull this off.  I have a rough sketch of it at work, I'll see about doing a more detailed one and posting it.

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.

      Working my way through the backlog of minis I need to photograph and post. I was very intimidated by this guy at first, but it turned out to be lots of fun to paint.
       
      C&C welcome.

      Greetings!
       
      Coral Golem from the "Titans Of The Tide" pack in Bones 3.
       
      It was quite tricky trying to determine many of the details on this mini but I got there in the end . Some of them, like the little fish & the sea cucumber were a pleasant surprise!
       

       

       

       

       
       
      There are areas of UV paint on this mini but I'm afraid I can't get very good pics showing it but the following will give some Idea. If anyone knows how to take a successful pic in low light using a UV lamp, pls let me know & I'll give it a go & post pics.
       

       

       
      Thanks for looking!

      Bob Ridolfi's Graveflesh Servant (aka Bride of Frankenstein) in Bones.  I tried to get some different flesh tones on her various parts, do some bruising at the wounds, and not-exactly-sheer fabric effects.  Spent far less time on it than I should have.

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.
