Bombshell M4R1A 'bot converted to Angel of Law

Recommended Posts

The clockwork wings are WONDROUS to behold, a BRILLIANT idea, BEAUTIFULLY crafted. As one who fiddles with watch/clock parts, I am truly impressed. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Thank you all! I'm happy it worked as well as it did. Glad you like her!

High praise from a craftsman of the fantastic! I got on this forum only last year; are there some watch-part-intensive parts of the Last Hurrah project I should see for future inspiration?

..I think you have outclassed me on the wings. In fact, when I placed an order with MicroMark today. I got one of their clock/watch parts boxes in a large part from thinking about your creation.

The gears show up all over the place, but the doors are a favorite spot for them. The Steam Punk Snail W.I.P. is sporting a clockwork hatch opening mechanism.

Astounding!  I love the clock-hands-as-wing-feathers concept.  I've got to find a use for that idea sometime.  Using "watch guts" as the base is positively inspired as well.  :)

      It is written in the Book of Rites that jade is more precious and nobler than gemstones. Confucius said to Zi Gong that 'nowhere would people not cherish jade, because they respect and admire virtue.' This is wisdom. 
      And is it not also written by sages of later days that "It's not easy being green"?  
      Point is, this Foo Dog was not easy to paint, but I think it's worth it. Took advice from http://theminiaturespage.com/workbench/149837/ on how to get the semi-translucent effects. I don't think I succeeded as well as Zaphod there did, but there are a lot of little fiddly curlicues on the mane. And a good layer of 'Ardcoat also helps. 

      Appearing with the Foo Dog is one of Bombshell's Sidekicks: Ping the Panda. Bamboo can be used for smacking as well as snacking. 

       

      And here's some more Ping:

      A lovely sculpt from Bombshell, Mi-Sher is billed as a Mongolian princess. I had a lot of fun with her dress.



      This post seems as good as any for a pair of Chinese Pirates I got years ago from Eureka. They both have a pudao or glaive. They were among my first forays into freehand back in the day--the one with the hat has a silver loong dragon on his back, and the hatless one, a crane.

      "Greetings. I hear tell. As some of you in this town. Fancy yourselves Tinkerers."

      Robots in hats are always great. And I've done enough shiny new 'bots for a while. So here's a rusty bucket-of-bolts in a battered bowler! Tried to make any remaining paint look battered and chipped.



      Also, here is M4R1A, clearly a Metropolis reference. But I got an idea in my head and made her into a clockwork angel with watch-part wings and a double halo of glory.
