02631 Skeletal Cavalry Project 2 of 2 for Fealron

Recommended Posts

My second project for Fealron marked off a few firsts: First magnetization, first mounted cavalry, first Pugh sculpt.




Here you can see the 2mm magnets inserted strategically.


This is how he sits mounted.  But, I wanted to keep it removable, thus the magnets.  I confirmed it would stay in place upside-down!



A sharpened paper clip acting as the scaffold for the horn.  I also sharpened the lance tip.  It comes cylindrical out of the blister.




Green putty to make the horn and cover/reinforce the magnets.




White brush on primer, Black on the base.  
I tried a little experiment with the base coat to give the bone a more orange look:  1:1 Ruddy Flesh:Desert Stone.  It may become my go-to for bone work.

Straight Desert Stone.


Washed with Agrax Earthshade.

Reapplied Desert Stone.


Dirty Bone


Splintered Bone with a touch of Desert Stone.



Dragon White.






The horn, hooves, and blanket are the Dusky Skin Triad, with a 4th layer final highlight of 1:1 Dusky Sin Highlight:Dragon White.

Thanks!  It was truly a labor of love, and it was bittersweet to give them up.


The rider was painted the same way as far as the bone.







The spear is Woodstain Brown, Shield Brown, Driftwood Brown.  The tip then got Dragon Black.



Ashen Blue under the Metal.

Scale Color Heavy Metal and Speed Metal.

Then very dilute blue, black, green and brown GW glazes.

Next up was a device for the shield.  Fealron’s request involved a woodland creature, normally good but turned to evil, and perhaps a minion for a necromancer.  That was where the ideas for corrupted then raised unicorns came from.  Checked off all 3 requests with each figure!  I envisioned a Druid-turned-Blighter-turned-Necromancer.  So the device was to be a tree:  half dead wood, half skeletal!







Basically the tree used the same colors as the spear, and the bone recipe above.



Saddle and belt and stirrups on rider.

Muddy Brown, Earth Brown, Tanned Leather with a touch of Earth Brown, glazed over with Agrax Earthshade.

This was the protection system:  I had some 1 inch gray foam I cut into a tray.  It then got bubble wrapped and shipping peanuts, and arrived safely, intact and on time!

      Several weeks ago I got to go to the hobby store and found a couple of new minis, one was this little jewel.

      It is pretty much done in the painting department, but what good is a catapult without its crew?
      These are some Oathmark dwarves that I’m converting to do the job.

      I admit the barrel is too big to fit in the catapult, but I’m going to find a way to work it in.

      I need to build a base big enough to hold everything and get some more dwarves, it is a start though.
      Ideas are welcome!
      Thanks for looking!

      I built a dispensor robot out of a reaper soda machine, a brain in a jar, a pair of goggles, a battery pack, and a pair of rat cyborg arms. 
      It'll get used for this is not a test eventually.

      Hi people.
      Im going to start another PBP.  So far I have interest from @ShadowRaven, @dwarvenranger, @Dilvish the Deliverer, and @Kangaroorex.
      We’re going to start the Serpent’s Skull adventure path.  Pathfinder 1e.
      All books are in play, but I reserve the right to veto something if it seems too gross/bloated.
      Please utilize the Serpent’s Skull Players Guide from the Paizo website.
      Abilities: 4d6, reroll all 1’s, drop lowest score, yielding ranges from 2-18 pre mods.
      Avg. Starting gold.
      We’ll follow the AP leveling track when possible.
      We’ll have individual initiative.
      I hope to get this started soon, so please post those characters.

      House Rules
      1. HP beyond first level.  Roll the hit die.  If the roll is less than”avg” then take avg instead.  Example: Wizard d6.  Rolls a 1.  Gets 4hp instead, before Con mod.
      2. Acrobatics can be used to avoid AOO when standing from prone.
      3. If someone is not responding and action is waiting for them, I’ll send a pm after 24 hours.  If no response 24 hours later, I’ll take over that character to get action rolling again.

      You can decide if you know each other before the start of the adventure, or are all randomly passing through this small rural town on your way to or from Korvosa.
      You have heard rumor that a carnival passes through this town, and have come to investigate and have some fun.
      As you mill about the carnival grounds, you can sample delicious food from vendors, view exotic sights or shows, and participate in games of skill and chance.
      Let me know what types of things you are interested in, and if/how you know each other.
