Wraithlord #2

Here is my second new style wraithlord. I always liked the kneeling rangers and Tau firewarriors. I thought a heavy weapon wraithlord would be great kneeling with the gun-grip hand. I cut the leg off just below the kneecap and pinned it. I have found that the pin vise works better than the dremel for pinning plastic figures. The plastic is so soft that it tends to melt with a dremel and give you a horribly large hole. The pin vise works great if you have a wire and drill bit that are very close to the same size.
I also put the back wings in a lower position as if they were articulated and he had them down for ballance.

I put both flamers on the left weapon mount, and glued down a few bits of metal sheeting down to hold the magnetic weapons in place. The hand has the nail heads from the earlier post. I also added the hip armor plates to the arm to make him look a little more armored.

Converted nightwing part 2

I have spent some more time on the nightwing. Plasticard is harder to use then some people make it look. There is some great work out there on the web. I had a lot of work to do to get the nightwing nose mesh with the star trek model ship. Its coming along. I made magnet mounts for the shuriken cannon and brightlances. I definately need a new base as well. Again I am hoping some green stuff magic will fix it all up. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Revenant titan part 4

I am attempting to make some custom pulsars for the big guy. I drilled out inside the sonic lance mount, and glued them inside. I then put the magnets on the end of the new pulsars with green stuff. The hard part was making sure that the pulsars were pointing the direction I want them to. So I positioned them and let it set overnight.

I may redo the pulsars though. They are not quite done. They are made from my son's old suction-dart arrows that he no longer plays with, and sections of pens. I am going to fix 'em up with some green stuff and see if that does it.
