77011: Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior Let me Axe you a Question

Recommended Posts

I started this conversion a loooong time ago for a friend who needed a dorf with an axe, and I did not at the time have a dorf with an axe. I was never quite happy with it, and the game died quickly. I forgot all about this little guy until recently, and I decided to finish him, and queue him up for the paints. I initially started with a clay weapon sculpt, but while I was fiddling with it it broke. In a fit of rage I cut a piece of aluminum stock and after a few hours of shaping we got here. I did a bit more shaping after this photo, and I plan on doing a bit of Apoxie Sculpt to blend in where the old weapon was cut away. For the surgery I used a #11 Scalpel. All the shaping was done with a #8 Double Cut Mill Bastard and diamond files.

I like this one better then Apoxie-Sculpted one. Nice save!

@Haldir thanks. I do too. It's more laborious but easier to get fine sharp detail in metal.

The new ax head is a BEAUTY, & rather unique shape. It reminds me of a francisca. It may have been fortunate you broke the other one.

Have FUN with the painting & modeling!

That's a pretty cool looking axe! I agree with them ^^^^, I think it's a good thing that the original version broke.
