While I love the Mossbeard Treeman figure from the Bones 4 Kickstarter, it always bothered me a little that his arms, as sculpted, grew from narrower at the shoulder to thicker at the wrist. This just looked unnatural to me since both branches and arms tend to grow from thicker at the shoulders to thinner near the ends.
So this week I began working n revering his arms, so they would connect to his body in a more natural, to my eye, arrangement.
I began by slicing off the existing external connector pegs. This was made easier by soaking them in boiling water for 30-40 seconds (As Ed Pugh suggested to do with the Chicken Hut legs on a recent Reaper Live), after which it was a breeze to slice right through them.
I then glued the pegs I had cut off back into the holes they were intended to go into to full those holes. After the glue was set, I drilled some holes in the shoulder connections to peg them with sections of doweling. After that, I glued the hands to the new wrist joints.
My next step is to blend the hands to the wrists with some greenstuff, and then I'll glue the arms in place.
WiP on this too cute baby dragon from bones 4. One of the reasons for my to back. The kids each pick one, and choose their own coulor. The dragon fly is magnetized, and i'm gonna put more magnetes on some other dragons so the dragon fly can hope from 1 to an other baby dragon.
... keep u posted.
