LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Legatho! He is creepy, ain’t he? 😉 LikeLike Reply Very cool! One thing that I love (and that people just don’t do enough of anymore) is the beastmaster/animal double-figure models that are actually linked by leashes and chains. I used to see a lot of that in WFB back in the 80’s and I always loved it. It’s like a mini-vignette between models – so much character. LikeLike Reply Cheers Odie! I’m trying to figure out how this would work in a gameplay. If the master dies, how’d I disconnect the two headed rat from it’s leash? And so on… Maybe building a miniature clasp 😀 LikeLike Reply What about a tiny magnet? LikeLike Hmm, that might work. But it would need to be camouflaged to something, like a power source, generator, tiny needle weapon etc. LikeLike You could just put them both on a larger base and make them an all-in-one figure for gameplay purposes. LikeLike Another option is to magnetize the handler’s hand, and have a replacement to put on him if the rat dies first. If the handler dies first, the rat would just be running around with a chain and disembodied hand. LikeLiked by 1 person Already? 2 days in and you are storming this already. Shit, I am still awaiting stuff being delivered 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply To be frank, these three have been at this stage for a week or so. Just trying to push myself to catch up some deadlines. LikeLike Reply Very characterful models. I particularly like “Pointman”. His pose is quite dynamic and to me he looks as if he’s sizing up an opponent, perhaps in a duel. I’m really looking forward to seeing these fellows painted and in a group shot with Valon LikeLike Reply Thanks Jordan! LikeLike Reply I totally agree about the pointman, that pose is excellent. Regarding the tracker, you made really creative use of the components that went into his head. For my part, I’ve never been a big fan of that particular rebreather, but with the helmet it looks like it has always belonged. It only occurred to me upon seeing these two latest models that they’re based on chaos cultists. You probably said that before and I had just forgotten, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen them used so elegantly. Have you thought about making the tracker hold a tiny hook, over which the chain slips? It might not be the most practical option in the real world, but it could fit their look and let you separate the models without the chain trailing a hand. LikeLike Reply That sounds like a great idea! I’ll give it a try. Thanks B. Wright! LikeLike Nice tracker!! I guess our invitational entries might be quite similar in spirit. I will need to send some pics next weekend.. LikeLike Reply Cheers Toni! These three are for my Inquisitor project. They may (or may not) have something to do with the Invitational 😉 LikeLike Reply Love the subtle ‘power swording’ of the flamberge, is that from the mordheim plastics? LikeLike Reply Cheers Owlshield! The sword is actually from Greatswords kit. LikeLike Reply Thanks! your stuff is a constant source of inspiration LikeLike Fantastic stuff! I really love the helmet/rebreather on the rat-handler. LikeLike Reply Cheers Weirding Way! LikeLike Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
