First and Only (Part III)


It's been a little quiet on the blog front over the last 3 weeks or so but I have found snatches of time here and there to progress this project. I'm finally at the end of the sculpting and converting stage (excluding a little bit of gluing) so painting and work on the base is up next.



The arm holding the weapon and the cape were probably two of the things I was kind of dreading having to do, but in the end they were actually a lot of fun to do and turned out quite well.

All in all I am very pleased with how he has turned out and I'm looking forward to slapping some paint on him. I've learned a lot during the converting and sculpting process on this figure, including finding a putty mix that I am really enjoying working with - hopefully this will carry over onto future figures too.

Feel free to let me know what you think, or any questions in the comments below.

Very stunning looking pose, I can see it in color in my head. Well done.

Solid work Dante. I may have missed the preamble, but is he to be edging up along a wall or sneaking around column structured scenery on the battle field?

Thanks guys!

@Tael - Yep, got it in one! He's going to have his back to a wall, sliding along towards a battered door.

A brilliant conversion again, Dante! But if he's going to have his back against a wall, shouldn't his cloak and especially the hood be pressed flat? Could you maybe post a pic of him leaning against some kind of wall, so we can get an idea of the exact positioning?
Anyways, your work, as always, is a great inspiration! I'm looking forward to more...

Cheers,
Monsterzonk

That is without a doubt the best Tanith I have ever seen. Actually the best guardsman I have ever seen. He has so much expression and conveys so much motion. He captures what makes Abnett's book so great, a personal, human element. I can't wait to see more!
