Wargaming Tradecraft: Hordebloods: Krielstone Warlocks WIP 1


Hordebloods: Krielstone Warlocks WIP 1

 So my Krielstone Bearer squad is going to be a Warlock squad with some orcs, an undead orc, and even a female undead using an Iron Kingdoms model TheWife won at the tourney she beat me in.

But by default, these are just a bunch of guys wielding axes, and we can't have that... oh no, we can't have that...

First up, is making one of their faces undead. To accomplish this, I used a mini saw to cleanly cut away the bottom of his jaw, and cleaned it up with my hobby knife.

Green Stuff finishes off the job, with some better defined teeth, a tongue hanging limply, and a rougher larger cowl.

To replace one of the axes, I make a scythe out of some miniature packing cardboard. I covered the cardboard in super glue, which solidified. This allowed me to sculpt it some, by basically sharpening the blade edge.

So I've got this Silicon Carbide, which I found at Green Earth. (note: I've been in a few times and their pricing tends to be wrong, something they don't seem to correct, so you may find it more expensive than advertised, around $8 a tiny bottle)

It's a whole bunch of very small shards of a black rock-like substance... but it's not just black. Depending on how the light hits it, it reflects different colours. I decided to glue all these to his staff.

And here's how his staff ended up:

(how fantastically awesome does that look, eh?)

Take a look at my Step by Step page for the entire Hordebloods project.
