Good call on the boots. Hope you get sorted soon.

CHEERS!

View user profile
Cheers! Just waiting on the special fuse!

Painted the plates of scale armour, I also had to paint the black latex red underneath after looking more closely at the reference pics, used a metallic red paint marker for that.











View user profile
Sculpted/carved the belt buckle, touched up the silver and red on the bicep plate armour, added a dust weathering to the boots and darkened the straps.

Great looking details, the boots armour and belt look just right, super work all round.

Thanks guys! More detail work being done for the belt and all its accessories, still need to paint the buckle and add its tines, the narrower belt will be on top of the wider one. Started his mini daggers that I think must be hunting skinning knives as they'd be pretty useless on the battlefield (the handles will be cut short and angled), I don't think you can shank orcs to death?! Also found that the little elastic band locks you get on some packaged goods will work well as his tunic fasteners when painted silver.
Got the boiler working yay!! It was fortunately just the PCB fuse.

Nice touches on all the little details for the clasps and buckle. Those boots turned out great.

Cheers Stryker! I might improve on the accuracy of the fasteners in the future but they work for now.

Finished the belt and the weapons are nearly done, gauntlets are next and the last things I think.

Great costume and weapon details, really looking forward to seeing the finished version of Glion.

I'm sure I'll have all the fun of my own heating maintenance to come, though I'd never choose gas, only electric will do.

Nah, grew up with electric in Greece, take ages to heat up and can zap you if the earth's not very good, like on our island house the sheet rock's not very conductive so if you knock your pecker against the tap...ouch!! Athens converted to gas about 15 years ago.

Done the armguards/gauntlets more accurately than I'd planned but was worth the extra time.

Very nice,

We converted to electric from solid fuel and it's been fine. I just wouldn't trust myself at all with gas.

Cheers! Yeah I remember we had huge oil tanks too that were used for central heating not hot water.

Finished Gloin's weapons and the complete figure. I made his knives similar to Indonesian/Philippine karambit  knife that is used in martial arts for very close quarter attacks, I've got a nice one by Cold Steel, dangerous bit of kit if you don't know how to use one (pics are of a training one from the net). I'm going to give Gloin his own thread as I took many pictures in different poses using different weapons.

Thank you very much Roger! Please check out his dedicated thread, I've tried to show off his articulation and weaponry as much as possible.

Another of the biggest Dwarves next..Bofur! (on the left).

Should be although he's deceptively complicated the closer you get to the actual costume, I'll be using a lot of hemp, yellow ink and tusks on this build! Wink Rebuilt some guns and did a lot of shooting so I think I'm about ready to tackle another Dwarf! Laughing

Alex, I thought it was Bifur on the left of the pic and not Bofur? Bifur looks to be another complicated figure, however having seen your previous builds I'm sure he will look a treat, still admiring your Gloin, and other figures at the moment, but looking forward to seeing Bofur/Bifur's  development, whichever you choose to do next.


Cheers,


Peter.

LOL, I keep getting these two brothers names mixed up and tend to think of them as James Nesbitt and the one with the axe in his head! His costume make me think of a wasp with the yellowish and brown/black patterns then his long boar hunting spear as a stinger.

Sorry about the delay, needed a breather and had other non 1/6 stuff to work on. Built his body today but got a bit worried I was going out of scale but seems to be okay, I'm just tackling another of the bigger Dwarves, it's hard to draw a line between a short stocky bloke and a Tolkien fantasy warrior Dwarf at times, it's often just the proportions and not necessarily the height it seems, i.e. long torso, short legs and arms and big head with high forehead, big features like noses, ears, hands feet etc.. Took some comparison pics to work out if I was still on track or not. Found an old Spawn dio that with the addition of a painting or something to cover up the hole and perhaps turn the other into a window, will work nicely for old Bilbo's fireplace scene where he kept the ring in an envelope for Frodo and talked to Gandalf.

















Eh, maybe with a bit of work...



Actually there are so many interpretations I don't think accuracy is a problem!









Window

Finished the body and all it's padding, extremities etc. so done clothing mock up too.

Cheers GF! Actually I haven't even started tailoring his complex (again!) clothing, there's going to be a lot of sewing on this guy...at least I had a break from that with Gloin but not cutting corners here with glue alone, should be less work than Balin though...famous last words... Wink

Distracted by real life stuff but some work on him done. Modified a Hasbro SW Hoth vest into his puffy sleeves, started sewing in extra detail but didn't like the results and it was taking forever so cheated and used a gold marker instead to simulate the shadows of the quilted designs. I sewed up his undershirt with room for his gut to be added and created his lace up front too. Made him a fat suit to match his look in the movie, took a while to get right. I'll be making his outer tunic next.



















A little OTT! LOL..





Some mods later..

Not mine Peter! The diamond pattern is all machine done by Hasbro's factory, I just had the sense to remember I had that vest to use and save me a lot of work! LOL.

Thanks! Found some nice scraps of materials for this build so been unstitching loads then cutting, reorientating, stitching it back in different places etc.. pays to be a pack rat of material scraps! Wink

All sewn together now so his sleeves won't fall off and his belly can fit in his trousers. I'm repurposing that red border from the armour scraps for his outer robe, also found some complex weave brown shoelace and patterned upholstery backing for his belt materials.

Done a lot of his outer robe, glued all the patterns in place and I'm now stitching them so they won't peel off down the road. Also narrowed the robe for a better fit, got the fur for the hem and shoulders; the belt materials are shown there too.

The amount of patience and skill involved in these builds is just mind boggling, more great work.
