Good day all.
I'm find of stumped right now to come up with some witty banter, so I'll launch right into it.
My movie entry is San, from Princess Mononoke. Here's an screen grab for anyone who has forgotten.
The base figure I used was the Privateer Press Tharn Wolf Rider Champion, who looks like this when found in the wild.
all of the posters on the Circle forums have called out the
similarities to San, just being a gal on a wolf is not enough. Light up
the Bitz Signal!
the thing is Privateer Press has a very restrictive conversion policy
if you are going to keep using the figure on the table, so the bulk of
the figure needed to remain unchanged. Also, the Champion is a bit more
adult than San was in the movie, but there wasn't much I could do to
Stage one was to dig a GW furred cloak
out of the bitz box, which came with the Empire Knightly Orders box set.
I decided to use San's masked head as the inspiration for this project,
so I needed a mask. As my sculpting is still pretty rudimentary, I used
a map pin as the basis, with the eye and mouth holes drilled out with a
pin vise. Green stuff fur was used to blend the cloak to the head, and
two chips of plasti-card were used to make the ears. The movie informed
the choice of colours.
There we go, no internet drama, no loss of blood, no man glutes, just a straight forward entry.
