Duel coming together

Rate this Entry
Here be updates!

I have completed the bulk of the farseer and added the components together.

The green band on the staff arm is GS to fill in where i joined the staff, it will be painted red to match the cloth\armour.

Few bits n bobs to finish on him like shading and some colour on the trinkets etc.

The next step was the lightning, this was made with medium and fine fuse wire, formed individually for the little branches, around a sphere shape to create the 'psychic dome' effect.

Quite pleased how it looks actually for a first attempt. Also a quick pic of the cut down base with some sand that will be worked on to give a bit of depth to the base.

Base will get pre shaded and then worked on to create the ground scene with tufts and whatever i feel it needs.

Quite excited as almost done

    Hej there... Looking really Interesting so far, much potential, but I would STRONGLY suggest not to use that Base for your Duel... It is simply too straight... The elements on it rigidly follow the boundaries of the base, making it look way too static and really not doing your Great Miniatures a favour... Better Choose a Round Base... This will take the rigid direction out of your setup and allow the spectator to see it from all Points around equally... Also, think about tilting the whole ground in a direction (the bigger the Angle the more dynamic and aggressive your Scene will finally look...)... A Base doesn´t always have to be like this, flat and Square, quite the contrary... It is the back bone of your Project as it rests on it... I would also recommend to go wilder with the Sand and use some that is more fine... If you look at a Ground anywhere in real life, you will only find those neat rubble piles somewhere near a Broom, but never on a Battlefield...... Go crazy with the Sand and use different types to be more true to the Miniatures scales (as there is always Sand, Soft, Dry, Wet and Hard Earth, Rubble, bigger Stones, Trash, Leaves and whatever you may also find outsides... Trust me, it´s an awful lot...^_^...

    Its an idea, my only worry is being close to the time limit on having it finished.

    Originally the idea was to have a larger square base, but many commented that it was too big for the duel category, hence why i have cut it down.

    Making a similar base in a round shape would be doable, i could make the basics up in an afternoon, i am just worried that if i make the base too big as a circle i will be moved to the diorama category, or judged lower.

    The square base i have made up is closer to the max allowed i.e 40-50mm square or 50mm round, as you are allowed some play in this from experience of seeing previous winners.

    I may have a play as i have a plinth base that the final models on a scenic base will go on, so i could make a few base ideas and go from there.

    Part of my idea is also to make the base more eldar in design as in the librarian is tresspassing.

    I will put them together and see which gets the best feedback and go from there.

    as i just have the base to work on now i have a good 2 weeks to deisign something.

    Thanks for your feedback though
