Clawful

210909-claws01

Weather wise, today was awful. Windy, thunder and lightning, rain. Perfect weather, though, for sitting inside and building some troops!

First, I spent an hour or so cutting plasticard rod into thin slices and then gluing them onto the claws. These make excellent rivet details, and are basically the only detailing the claws actually need. If they were any bigger, like on an Orc or something, then that would warrant a little bit more detailing work. But as it is, the size and sheer number of the claws means only a minimum of details are needed.

While these were drying, I next glued rivets to the crates. Look at those crates go!

With the claws dry I could then glue them to the arms I had prepared.

From there, they were glued to the Plague Monks/Mechanics themselves. I think they are looking rather good.

And once the crates were dry, they too were glued to their waiting slaves. Once these are dry I’ll model a brace onto the ones with slings, so that they are actually holding a handle. Rather than just awkwardly wielding a sling while having a giant wooden box on their back.

    The claws are looking good Matt and you’ll be rewarded for the time you spent on them by all the positive comments on the table I’m sure.

    I am hoping that the crates the slaves are carrying are meant to be empty, because I’m damn sure they wouldn’t be able to carry them if they were full!
