My quest in recreating the twisted images from Liber Chaotica: Tzeentch continues..but I hit a speed bump this morning..
As you remember from the last post my warband leader is Hurvald Windblade and I’m basing his pre-daemonhood character on this sketch.
After some really useful advice I broke the first version in more pieces again and pinned it all together to elongate the arms, neck and the beak.
While the body of the Gaunt Summoner which is the base model is quite detailed I will need to add a few bits here and there.
All in all I think I’ve nailed the frame for the model. Now it’s over greenstuffing 🙂
But yes, the matter of the “speed bump”..I can’t not try be a part of this 🙂
No worry though as I’ll continue the warband for Path to Glory anyway.
Nice work Tommy ! Both idea and modelling are great ! But IMO, the sword doesn’t work… It’s too thick compared to the rest of the figure which is finesse … just my two cents…
Well I actually have an alternative that is a lot slimmer, more like a rapier. I’ll test it out.
Great posing, gives a sense of twisted nobility, scheming and manipulating for power. This path to glory stuff is your best yet.
Cheers, I really appreciate the support! It gives me added confidence to keep on exploring 🙂
I can see why you’ve hit a speedbump mate! Now I can look forward to your efforts both on the Pilgrimage and on the Path to Glory.
Regarding Hurvald Windblade, well done for having the stomach to cut up the Gaunt Summoner – I’m not sure I could! I really like the long arms, they add a nicely creepy effect. Controversially I also think the heavy sword works really well, it adds to the sense of magical power emanating from the character (it’s not muscle he’s using to swing that sword).
Haha, well cheers mate 🙂
It took a couple of days but in the end I decided to just gun for it. Very good point of the sword and I actually think it adds to the RoC aesthetics.
Those proportions look 100% better. Looking forward to see how he finishes out.
Happy to hear it! Jeff Vader and euansmith on the bunker preferred the previous incarnation but I’m quite certain that these corrections will be truer to the sketch.
