1/6 scale horse armor custom for Skull knight from [Berserk]

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

I'm starting a new custom build horse for Skull knight from my favorite graphic novel Berserk.

Previously, I tested him on my old Steed (borrowed from Nazgul from LOTR)


Skull Knight is too big and the horse has short neck/Legs than it should.
It won't look right - proportion-wise, but I want to try anyways.
Maybe I'll find a way to enhance it on the way.

So I've started building the armor parts in 3D


Still WIP, and I'm running 2 projects at the same time.. My goal is to update every weekend -ish.

Very cool looking armor for a horse. Have you considered one of those Mr. Z Draught horses that came out about a year ago? Those things are huge. Though you’d have to shave off the mane to get that armor on.

Mr. Z horse is nice but too thick.
This is reference I'm building.

I think the Nazgul horse looks pretty damn good actually, at least in that shot you posted. Berserk is one of my all time favorite manga series, and so I'm really psyched to see this come together. That 3D rendering of the armor looks tight as hell so far.

This is amazing. I have several questions. What 3d software are you using? What brand of 3d printer do you have? Are you doing these projects in a factory Studio warehouse or a company high end 3d printer akin to the ones at custom auto body shops?

3d software : mostly XSI (RIP..) & Maya
3D Printer : Anycubic Photon (DLP) - It's still not cheap, but I'd say it's affordable for the output quality.
I'm just doing it as a hobby in my garage (with ventilation set up) Very Happy

Attaboy.

That's looking damn nice.

I'd love to add a 3D printer to my hobby list, but I'm afraid of my wife...

That printed armor looks incredible! I can't wait to see this painted.

And for the record, that berserker armored Guts is seriously one of my favorite custom figures I've ever seen. I remember when you 1st posted, and it just blew me away. To this day, I've been waiting for someone like ThreeZero to make mass market version. It's seriously a grail figure for me, and yours is flawless.

Great work!! I never have the patience for CAD/autocad etc.. Love the helmet you designed for the Guts armoured figure.
