Finished Dwarves' threads so far (I still need to do threads for Dwalin, Balin and Nori but there are pics of them on this WIP thread):

Gloin finished

Bifur finished

Bombur Finished




I've wanted these guys in my collection ever since the first Hobbit film, Dwarves are my favourite fantasy characters so of course Gimli has always been my favourite character in LOTR and I built him years ago, my first custom body I think. These characters have only been produced as 1/6 in polystone statue form by Weta and I believe not all of them, not cheap either!
To help me with these rather ambitious multiple builds I asked fellow member and artist Peter The Painter to do all the head sculpts because he is excellent at capturing likenesses no matter the subject, works very fast, great communications and his sculpts are one of a kind pieces of art.
So with the heads taken care of by Peter, that just leaves everything else for me to do starting with the bodies. Dwarves are shorter than humans but larger than Hobbits, they are also very stocky due to their enhanced strength so there are no readily available 1/6 bodies around to make Dwarves. I first decided to hunt down as many 'over sized' Hobbit bodies by Toy Biz for all the articulation and the correct height 8"-9" with a head, unfortunately most of the ones I found for sale were in the USA and I'm in the UK so shipping and customs charges made them monetarily impossible for me to buy 14 of them. I then thought Mego bodies but they are too short and rare, also only available in the USA (there's a company that makes reproduction Mego bodies). After a random eBay search for 9" figures/bodies I discovered the Trendmasters 9" Austin Powers figures that are very cheap and readily available in the UK with free shipping on the most part. They also have the advantage of coming with fabric clothing variants in this unique body size, the colours and fabric types will actually be quite useful for the Dwarves.
Below are some basic reference pictures of the Dwarves and Bilbo and below those, pictures of what I have so far to contribute towards the builds (I'm still waiting for three more Trendmaster bodies to arrive).























































Modifying for broader shoulders and more
articulation.

I've got less artistic freedom in these builds but they do actually have quite a few costume changes throughout the films which will help, I'd love to do them all in armour as they looked at the end...maybe someday...

Rogerbee wrote:Looks like a fun build. Are all those heads by Peter!?

Yup! All Peter's work, there are two Bilbo heads there, I'll be using the one with the darker hair but making it lighter, I'll also be doing some other little mods here and there like extending hair with real hair, some personal touches I want to add like gloss in the eyes etc.. I'm just so glad he's done most of the paint already, I thought initially he would be sending me unpainted sculpts.

I'm far from perfect on that front, got plenty of half built projects kept in labelled boxes including my double Punisher builds: Punisher War Machine and the Netflix TV series version. They're all organised at least! Laughing

View user profile
I've been going through parts bags/boxes trying to find anything else pertinent to the builds like chunky boots, furs & real hair, more clothing and essentials like hands and feet; also more lego for articulation (hence the pic of my giant bionicles bag).

You've left it a bit late mate, I was really after those two Hobbit bodies for this build but the postman just dropped off 3 more NIB Austin Powers figures so I have 14 bodies now! I'd still be interested in them as the Dwarves' bodies vary from one another but you need to pm me a price as I can't do the trade thing because I can't go to the post office, agoraphobia remember? Crying or Very sad
Pics of the final donor figures to arrive, got all 3 NIB for 25 quid inc shipping in the UK. I've also sorted out neck parts, wrist pegs, which feet will work for all of them, got the hands to go through next. There's a couple of pics showing the parts that will need to come together to create a far more articulated and stocky body as my 'blue print' for the Dwarves' basic body; obviously each character will have his own tailored body such as Dwalin being a big bruiser of a Dwarf, Bombur needing a huge fat suit and Ori being very thin etc..









Got a few Minime's now, a Dwarf of a Dwarf? LOL.

Okay mate cheers!

Gone through all the hands, took bloody ages to find matching pairs of the types I wanted i.e. : 2 gripping, or 1 gripping the other gesturing etc..
I started by removing all the pistol trigger hands (found I had loads of rifle trigger hands too by the way Roger so I think your idea on not being able to find any is incorrect at least as far as my collection goes, they probably came off donor DID WW2 bodies etc..). Anyway...guess what you get left with after removing all the trigger hands? A crap load of left hands!! Mad Fascist righthanders! Wink . Got 13 pairs I'm happy with (already had Hobbit ones selected) just need to find matching pegs for them all now and not break them!

View user profile
Had to put on my thinking cap to get the prototype Dwarf body more articulated without compromising any existing articulation which involved a lot of very careful sawing and cutting to get just the right clearances to mount the shoulders and arms without changing the height but bulking out the width. Wasn't easy to think straight today as new neighbours moved in across the street (I say new but they used to hang around there with the alcoholic causing chaos and having the cops turn up regularly, well he kicked the bucket a few weeks back and unfortunately these guys and girls moved in permanently Mad ) , they are loud as hell junkies and alcoholic jailbirds, one is the son of the guy who died and is in and out of prison as a lifestyle.. they are also completely insane thinking the street is their theatre of madness. I really, really can't wait for winter for so many reasons...
Oh yeah, I chose the ugliest bionicle parts I have since they will be hidden Wink .







The parts that were modded

















The abdomen can still rotate independently from the rest of the parts, this involved silicone grease and the glue gun.





I'll make more sense when I've attached the original shoulders and arms...I'm just enjoying the silence while it lasts...they partied all night and day...oh to be young again! LOL.

Thanks Peter! Well these builds wouldn't be possible if you hadn't accepted my commission for the sculpts! Laughing Or if I'd actually had the drive to sculpt them they certainly wouldn't be as recognisable as your sculpts! I am actually striving for movie accuracy this time, more so than the Wraiths but there will be concessions due to reality of course, I'm not fanatical enough to get every texture or pattern of clothing movie accurate as I work with what I have at my disposal and can't devote my entire life to perfection when I have so many other projects as well.

Nearly finished the first body, I need to add stabilising struts to connect the chest pieces and insert soft foam to fill the gaps but still allow articulation; the neck cover is just 'stand in' for now as I'm not even sure whose body this is! Wink Sorted out 14 pairs of hand pegs.









View user profile
Done what I said I would then tried a mock up with the Austin Powers suit unaltered (cut the cravat off) and a pair of Toy Biz Gimli's boots and gloves as well just plonked in place so no actual hands or feet yet. I noticed that only one bicep articulates and that's only on the Dr. Evil figures, how lame is that? AP doesn't have any bicep articulation, bummer going to have to fix that to then, probably using a screwhead as a mushroom connector with a swivel hole dremeled out for it on the connecting piece. Thorin's head looks a bit weird as his hair is too close to the back of the body stopping it from sitting naturally but no bother as I'd planed on giving most of the Dwarves with loose long hair real hair anyway (sorry Peter! It was on the cards before we even spoke...I just didn't explain it, I've always preferred real hair on most figures). This is why I think Dori's head comes across more natural on the body.

CHEERS!

Sorry my mistake got it backwards obviously! Then I'm totally confused as I've got a stupid amount of pistol hands, it was something about the trigger finger not being curved enough wasn't it? Brain's fried with this bloody heat! Hate it! Nearly 30c In FRONT of my room cooler on max loaded with ice! I was shooting a spring airgun sniper rifle behind it to get maximum range, after 60+ shots the damn bolt action seized up due to heat expansion and I blew the front brass nozzle off it! Basically blew the rifle's charging system up! Embarassed

Back to the build.. I took off the front brace as it was aesthetically horrible and hard to hide plus just the one on the back is plenty for support. I made a bicep swivel for the other arm, drilled holes to add the hands and feet, then added more foam to complete the body's shape, gluing it all in place so the first body is now complete! Shame I don't have a factory...only 13 more to go...at least some of them are variants to keep it interesting for me, probably bore you guys to tears! Wink











Bolts for all the other biceps to articulate...ugh..





Well I'm calling it finished, could do with thigh articulation but it's hard to do as I have no specialised tool for milling out the mushroom shape for any bolt head connection, it has to be done very carefully with a tiny dremel bit and a scalpel which takes quite a bit of time to do. Actually I'll fix those shoulder 'bumps' by either removing the bumps or adding foam to the lower parts.



And my poor L96 with it's bolt action piston blown apart..Sad



I'd just put it back together from the scrap heap too!

Shame about the rifle. Rifle grip hands, when you try and put a pistol in them, leave the pistol pointing awkwardly downwards, so you cant do any decent aiming poses.

Ingenious custom bodies by the way

Stryker2011 wrote:And we’re off!

Yup got a body to make a costume for now!
As for the rifle, I was already 'skating on thin ice' since I'd done a power upgrade with a much stronger spring and heavier piston inside some parts that weren't exactly high quality so I expected a failure at some point but not for it to be caused by the heat! Regular firearm bolt action rifles can have their bolts seize due to rapid fire and heavy loaded cartridges causing heat expansion, the same seems to be possible with an air piston bolt action rifle too, if you have ever used a bicycle pump you'll have noticed the compression tube gets hotter the more you pump it due to friction and heat generated/transferred from the compressed air molecules to the pump's casing. It's exactly the same with this type of bolt action only you also have eternal friction to add heat (lubrication usually solves that) and then being used repeatedly on a very hot day under a stupid solarium (I hate that damn thing, it's like a microwave!) and the bolt casing expands so much with the heat it gets stuck and the nozzle must have expanded just enough to get trapped so when I pulled the bolt back too forcefully trying to unjam it I must have ripped it right off the bolt casing!
Well you did ask! Laughing Wink

Shoulder bumps were an easy fix and avoided 'giraffe neck' too. Done a second mock up more complete this time as he has hands and feet attached with the body finished under the clothing, just wanted to see how other clothing and another head looked on this body; pretty good I think.. as long as the bloody room cooler doesn't blow him over!















Oh, and look what I found on eBay! A T-slot cutter the perfect size for 1/6 figures to make those mushroom joints for swivelling biceps and perhaps now thighs too! Shaft fits in a regular dremel, most only fit in their 3 in 1 router that I don't have! YAY!

Going to bed now it's cooled down a bit, supposed to be cooler the next few days so hopefully I can get more done.

Gone through a few massive bags of materials looking for usable stuff, still got a big back of black material and another big bag of white material to go through, then my bags of 1/6 clothing; I'd only grabbed the LOTR related baggies before but I'm sure there's still usable stuff in the other organised baggies. I was mostly looking for unusual stuff with patterns, surprisingly the best I found was that bra that has some really cool intricate patterns (imagine it in metallic colours over another colour like red or blue etc..) that could be cut for borders and panels on their outfits. I also found a padded bra that could make Bombur's fatsuit! Laughing  Plus it has lots of strapping that if painted/inked brown/black could make good belts or harnesses, the funniest part for me was that I discovered the front is only held together by strong magnets (useful), where were these easy open bras in my youth?!! pirat Wink

Most of this stuff has come from bags or suitcases I found left outside my house.





























Again, nice patterns that look Dwarven if picked out in paint and a wash of ink.





Okay, I might be pushing how useful this could be but we'll see.

CHEERS!

Your bloody low spaced 'cheers' got me again!

LOL, no these are left in normal bin bags, supermarket bags etc.. and even in a suitcase once! Charities post special bags through your letterbox to use that are clearly marked for charity, I live at the end of a street junction that is a cul de sac with the post box and a big brick flowerbed thingy, people just like to leave stuff there kind of like an unmanned 'swap meet' except not much swapping goes on. Kind of like fly tipping but with smaller more useful stuff to me at least, I guess they figure "well I don't want these any more maybe someone else can use them". Charities are actually very fickle about what they take as they have to be sure they can sell it not just clog up their stock rooms so they ask for designer clothing, handbags, belts, footwear etc.. I've never even owned anything they'd want! Laughing

I just send this to the government about article 15 of the Offensive Weapons Act since I signed the petition against it, some other UK members might want to know about the petition to stop the law being passed that will make delivery of ANY bladed item to a residential address ILLEGAL!

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/222776

https://www.parliament.uk/business/news/2018/june/have-your-say-on-the-offensive-weapons-bill/

Dear sir, madam, I suffer from agoraphobia and cannot leave my house that is classified as a private residence so I rely solely on the internet for the delivery of all my purchases from food to work/hobby related supplies, I have no family in the UK and friends are always too busy for me to bother with my daily requirements. I am a sculptor and custom 1/6 custom action figure builder as well as a model builder. These hobbies are integral to my coping mechanism and therapy for my illness and other illnesses, chronic depression and acute anxiety disorder. To continue with my therapy I need tools, one of the most essential being hobby knives that use disposable blades that need to be replaced on a regular basis as well as mini hacksaw and jewellers saw blades, my rotary tool (a Dremel) also requires bladed tool bits to operate. The proposed ban on the sale of any bladed items to residential addresses would destroy my coping mechanism and therapy as well as my mental health and the well-being of my day to day life. Please consider people in my situation, I am not unique in this situation, many fellow sufferers use the same coping mechanisms to create beautiful items and pieces of art that when shared on line whether it be in forums, public photograph sites, or video hosting sites are a benefit and inspiration to many people who appreciate and/or would like to pursue similar crafts and hobbies for their life style, therapy or even as businesses. Please don't take away what little joy sufferers of agoraphobia may have as hobby/craft knives are used for so many constructive and therapeutic indoor activities/hobbies/crafts/art. Yours sincerely, Alexander Smith. wrote:

Thanks Roger, it's only the ban of blades being sent to a residential address and ownership of certain blades being made illegal I'm opposed to, the rest to do with firearms (is totally stupid but expected) I'm not worried about personally. The whole acid thing seems to make sense, I would say under 18's need it for their 125cc bikes but batteries are mostly sealed gel nowadays or at least the decent quality maintenance free ones are, I guess they should do a trade in option sponsored by the government, ie bring your old acid battery and trade if for free for a new sealed one? Ironically guys on mopeds with their visors open are some of the most common victims for acid attacks! Mad Not sure about young aspiring chemists but I'm pretty sure they do their work in school labs where chemicals should be under lock and key.

Thanks for the sentiment! The government allows organised and licensed protests but then ignores them, if it's not licensed and you merely have a gathering of 15 people who might not even be protesting anything anyway they arrest you for public something or other, illegal gathering?

They think they're placating the public and sadly there are a lot of ignorant and stupid people out there who run for cover whenever they see the word gun or knife, sadly I know some of them...bloody irritating argument with someone I've known for 30 years about it on FB today, bloody depressing how even a friend can't be reasoned with because they've been brainwashed by the tabloid newspapers Crying or Very sad Rolling Eyes

Anyway..screw all that... second body done mostly, given this one slightly narrower and lower shoulders. I'd like to say I'm getting the hang of it now but I'll be dealing with different parts for the next ones! That's what happens when you scratch build from stuff lying around Wink I'm saving lots of money though so I can stock up on swords and knives I've always wanted this month before the ban can be implemented Smile They don't seem to have taken into account all the sword, knife, hunting and fishing shops that used to be brick and mortar in town shut down years ago due to online sales! So there's nowhere to go to buy them anyway even if I wasn't agoraphobic... I actually bought my huge fan shaped sword display stand (holds 20) from what used to be our local sword and knife shop when he had to close down.

Anyway don't really care if I did, been busy enjoying season 1 and 2 of 'Colony' excellent post invasion sci-fi series. Finished off the second body and have started Dwalin's, he's the big one! And my favourite looks wise. He has bare muscled forearms but luckily I have the perfect parts for that, arms that came off a 'Prince Of Narnia' armoured Cyclops, I used his decorative breastplate on one of my Wraith builds. Anyway Dwalin is taller and broader than the other dwarves so needs those mods incorporated into his body along with the forearms.

Not that there was any doubt, but it is always impressive how much thought you put into each and every piece, making it just right for what it is supposed to portray, rather than being generic. And all the foresight keeping bits and pieces from other figures and items around for use in your builds. Also, I crack up every time I see these patriotic British knickers. Smile

Cheers GF! Well that's what my bags and draws and tubs of parts, clothing and materials are for! Lucky I have a large storage room!

Talking of which...just went through all my 1/6 clothing bags and selected this stuff for different reasons like the pattern of the material, the size, the colour, the style of clothing and general usability for these guys. Better to know I have it and not use it than get stuck needing something I have but not knowing I have it! Laughing Wink





















To be honest though I think I'll have to trawl the web for pics of Dwarven angular Celtic patterns and print them off on printer friendly cotton A4 sheets, haven't done that in years! LOL.

Thank you RS! I think I'll end up with a ring of Dwarves around my ring of Wraiths! Laughing

Talking of widening bodies, that torso piece was a bit too wide!! Embarassed



So had to rethink his build and used another piece dremelled down and secured the figure parts with wood screws after hand drilling holes for them. Cut his forearms off but haven't attached the new ones yet (been busy working on that rifle) and now he seems more proportional to his character width and height wise. It's funny because I have his sculpt staring at me while I'm also watching 'Colony' season 3 where Graham McTavish who plays Dwalin the Dwarf I'm working on also has a major role in 'Colony' bald headed and bearded too!
