A question about 06173: Shadow Sisters

Recommended Posts

I recently got the set 06173: Shadow Sisters. It consists of four of the figure on the left and five of the one on the right.

Only,  that’s not quite what they look like. The figure on the right has an extra cape piece.

 

The figure on the left has lacing up the middle seam of her cape. The figure on the right’s cape has a similar seam right at its edge and there is a separate cape piece (not depicted) of another half of the cape.

 

There is a little nubbin to affix the cape which goes into a little socket in her left shoulder. It looks like it could be a precarious pinning job.

 

The cape piece looks like it could possibly be glued in from a variety of angles, from matching the seam of the integrated cape to flying dramatically back. I tried to find out the official position, only to find that in the store photo above the second cape piece is not included.

 

May I ask, what was the original artist’s intent for the second cape piece?

I don't know what the artist intent is, But I would go with what ever looks cool.

A terrible picture, but I've got mine in a semi dramatic flowing backwards position. I put them that way because the buttons and the connection matched up the best.

I don't have many complaints about Warlord, but I take exception to some of the choices of fiddly bits on models that get pushed around on a gaming table.

That was kind of my thought too. I was hoping these might be suitable for pawns for a chess set.

I can't count the number of times I've had to reattach my Vale Warrior's swords (joint at the wrist--can't even pin it properly without going right through the hand).

You think Warlord models are fiddly, try Infinity models, they will drive you nuts

Small complaint of mine, as the game is awesome.  The good outweighs the bad, and I proxy stuff or convert my way around models I find too delicate, or use the Bones version!

      Another mini which has been done for a while: a raptor.  This was meant for a module that uses a raptor hatchling as an animal companion for a kobold Ranger.
       



       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      C&C welcome.

      I totally haven’t looked up this character’s name. He’s great. He’s an orc. Bones 4. Blah blah blah. 
       
      Anyways, I stopped painting orc-face mc-Orc doodle the orc prematurely out of painting fatigue. I had lots of other shiny new bones to paint. It’s a great sculpt and he deserves respect though. 
       
      So let’s try this! If you’ve got improvements to suggest I’ll implement them and post a new picture. It could be fun and you’ll motivate a fellow nerd to “brush up” and turn a decent job into a great job - which is one place I could use encouragement. You can of course call it done anytime you like, but sometimes you know the figure needs more. This will be a fun exercise.

      So I've always have had problems pinning a round object, more or less trying to get the pin vise/drill into the round part of the piece. In this instance, the round part is the hand of the river troll 14008 (Warlord line). The wrist has a perfect indentation for the "ball" of the hand. With having to travel to play & such & of course actual gameplay I don't trust superglue alone.
       
      Any tips?

      Hello forum family, slowpainter is back  this time I was a bit faster, prolly 'cause this mini was really easy to paint.
      For obvious reason the palette of my choice is cold. Used various tones of blues trying to make contrast and not stay monochrome. A bit of gold and some rusty metal and she is done.
       


      Every c&c is more than welcome, let me know if you like her :)
      Thanks
