Thank you Roger! I'm calling it 'micro-filing'! Wink Well at least that's what I've been doing for the last couple of hours on the belt buckle to get the right 3D shape, might need to use some wet super fine grit modelling abrasion sponge to get rid of any fluff etc.. but basically done now. Started the boots too.

Alex, liking the belt buckle, and the way that you've reshaped the boots is quite ingenious.

Looking good, so far. Nice details on the jacket and boots.

This build just continues to blow my mind. The amount of detail is awesome. And wait a minute, am I understanding correctly that you're printing the trim directly on fabric? I didn't know that could be done. That's some real wizardry! Can you tell us a bit more on that (or did I miss that in an earlier post)?

Cheers Stryker, I think I've added more than the coat actually has! LOL.

Thanks RS! I've used printing on material for many years now so I didn't really cover it. I've used it on all the Dwarves so far, the actual printing is easy if you just follow the instructions that come with it; the printing is the easy part! It's all the virtual cutting and pasting, resizing, contorting etc.. that does my head in! Then there's the real hands on cutting and pasting, sewing etc.. to do afterwards too. pic of the raw materials:













Inked the boots, made and painted the gauntlets (still need to do the back of the gloves) and added more fabric printed patterns to his shoulders with matching ink to the material. Belt's mostly done too.

JUST AMAZING! you are pulling out all the stops on these figures, really enjoyable to see.

my personal favourite view of your Nori custom so far.

Thank you so much Peter, that means a lot to me!

Painted his coat and boots a more movie accurate tan rather than just grey, spent all day making his metal lace up system, square eyelets? And a mounting system for it as I'd never made anything quite like it before that I can think of. Anyway, all sewn in place now and laced up, making the finishing touches for the belt too.

Beautiful work on this costume. Very impressive, including your patience with the eyelets.

Thanks GF! After looking at the source material and comparing it to my pics I decided the eyelets looked way too big which really bugged me so I came up with any easy fix, twisted each large one with angled pointed pliers to create a small pair of triangular eyelets that are now to scale and look more accurate too; the lacing looks more intricate and interesting as a result.













This is how the 'ties' of the laces will sit

Very nice work on the eyelets Alex, love the gauntlets and boots too.

Thanks! Need to finish his gloves, weapons, make scabbards and he should be done I think.

Made most of his belt which is now attached and for those with keen eyes will notice I've shortened his coat to a more accurate length. I also thinned it and stitched a bit more for a better look.

Before I knew this thread I did not know much about the Dwarves - there was only Thorin, old Guy, Sausage Guy, Sexy Guy and the rest, but there is much love in their designs. Although I wonder how some of them kept their perfect hair throughout the Journey.

Maybe I have to read their backgrounds to appreciate the Hobbit Triology more. Surprised

Thanks for noticing, I had no margin of error to play with there! The thread is as thick as the gap in the pattern...

LOL, who is 'Sausage guy'? As for keeping their har perfect, they didn't, at least in the barrel ride and ferry to Lake Town scenes LOL. I do wonder just how long it takes them to get dressed though! Crazy amount of buckles and laces to do up!

Thank you very much Roger!! Very Happy

Funny how it's the little things that no one will ever notice that take so long to make like this little boot knife that will be in a scabbard on the back of his leg... plenty of tools and a vice used just to shape it..





Not perfect..

The knives are a really nice touch, they will look great when they are painted up.

It is super difficult to sculpt a convincing weapon of this type and in this scale. Mine are one-sided and still not convincing... yours promises to look just right when you are done prettying it up. Smile

With Sausage dwarf I mean Bombur, there was a scene where...well, this scene:

Did he ever say anything throughout the triology? I think he was in charge of the food inventory. The barrel scene was horrible. xD
I really like the head sculpt peter made, I wonder how your Bombur will turn out.

View user profile
He has at least one line, it provokes Bifur's only line which is pretty funny and appropriate considering the circumstances (Bifur could speak while the axe was in his head, only a bit of ancient Dwarvish tongue, he couldn't recall the 'common language' due to the brain damage, I think Bombur just had food in his mouth a lot?).

Yeah got a bunch more to do, still just tempted to do most of the weapons all together though...

Well I might get around to some of the female characters at some point but got loads of Iron Man builds I want to do first.

Ugh. Just more and more awesomeness. Every time I tune in, I'm again impressed by the ingenuity and attention to detail.

Also, I've never even heard about that printable fabric paper before! Thanks for the heads up on it.

No probs, it's real soft fabric especially the silk just lightly glued onto regular paper, you cut it out and peel it off leaving the paper sticky not the fabric.

View user profile
Done Nori's glove armour and the scabbards for his kukri knives so calling him finished for now, I'll make his weapons later with others for reasons I've explained before. Gloin or Bifur next I think, both are as large as Dwalin just a tad shorter.













NEXT:

Gloin..







OR

Bifur..

Gloin's going to be another tricky one like Balin, lots of complicated stuff going on: Wicker woven leather armour, Dwarven scale mail, leather bordered edging with patterns, another type of plate scale mail, really complicated boots and gauntlets...going to be interesting...affraid Wink

Starting Gloin, Gimli's dad! I'll obviously need to make him a bulky body before anything else. Love this scene from the film when Legolas thinks Gloin's wife is his brother and Gimli is an Orc hybrid LOL, plus Fili's great collection of hidden knives:

Well there's always method in my madness even if it takes a while to find it! Wink

Been experimenting with what might work for his wicker like leather tunic, started off cutting a bra cup into strips with plans to weave them together but it looks like a very messy way of doing it especially as glue is needed for each connection/overlap. Trying something different now, never done it before, using the double sided cotton printable fabric (quite thick and stiff already) and painting both sides with acrylic for a base colour to print on, one side is orange-red the other is a darker blood red. The idea is to be able to have two attempts on one sheet of printing a wicker pattern or two in grey scale over the red and hopefully end up with a pattern I can use and not wreck my printer! Shocked Should work fingers crossed, or might just be a big black smudge...



















Wicker designs to choose from:















View user profile
HA-HA!! Success! Assuming it won't smudge when dry.... wish I could safely clear coat it....hairspray maybe... Anyway it worked! Chose the design below for the most options like the squares in the middle and printed it twice on the orange-red side.

Outstanding finish to Nori. He looks awesome (was there any doubt?).

Brilliant wicker print, too. It's going to look mighty fine.

That print looks great, would a matt acrylic spray not help to  fix it?
