Title: Current projects
Post by: parvus_machina on October 17, 2007, 05:50:17 AM
What are you currently working on?

Me?.....I am working on 3 mounted Knights of Uren from Rackham.  This is a commission job for a long time customer of mine.  Pretty much every dwarf I have ever done from Rackham is owned by this customer.  Right now I am kind of stuck.

THe mounts are boars.  On one, the tusks were "deformed" and I ended up cutting them off with the intent of pinning on different ones.  I haven't had much luck finding spiky bits to use for good tusks and my sculpting skills are VERY limited (gap filing mainly).  If anyone has any ideas, let me know!

A 'broken' tusk look would be cool, maybe with a little blood on the tip. Wouldn't need to do the whole thing.

I am on wizard two of 8 for a friend of mine, working on my second in command Necromancer, and assembling my Grave guard born of Brett. men at arms and skeletal bits. 25 guards for $30 vs. (is it 16?) real ones at about $95 I think.

Broken tusks are cool! I have on fig once with a bubble in the casting so had a gap in his head. It was a Gene Hybred. I painted it too look like gushy brains. Turned out neat. A broken tusk would definately add to it. Make it the champion and add some bits around the ground so it looks "special" as if you did it on purpose :-)

I wonder if it would look crazy if you put metal spikes on where the horns were if it could be the champ? Sometimes masterpieces are born from numbskull ideas...
