Just like to share my latest creation.
The Samurai armour has the Green Gobby mask entirely replacing the front portion of the original armour. A little Sculpey was used to change the look of the eyes. Sword clip behind to hold the katana.
The samurai helm is your standard SW skiff guard's. Two holes were drilled to the sides of the helm, with cut-up cattlehorns glued on.
I finished the scythe last year, before I knew that the new Castle series were going to have it. This was originally intended for my Black Samurai, but the Kanji would not fit into this thinner blade.
The scythe blade uses ABS from one of those large 4x6 Lego flags. Two Lego clips were then cut and glued to the blade so that it'll click on to a polearm. Same concept as your official Lego axe-head.
The idea of the Fenris Wolf head for the Horse's helm, was also originally intended for my Black Samurai (but without those huge horns).
After hollowing out of the inside of the Wolf Head, I filled it with sculpey, forced it on, jammed more sculpey in, and boiled it together with the horse to achieve a "fit". With the sculpey contact to the Wolf Head being rough, while the horse head is smooth, the piece can be removed without much problems. This actually also makes it automatically fit the horse like a Lego piece.
Studs were then glued to the back of it so that two elephant tusks can be fitted as horns.
For the barding, the cut-out shape was rather painstaking. The barding design is meant to look like the torn skin of a Tatsu.
The decals were actually very difficult to put on; being such a large and unwieldy piece. I messed up 3 sets before getting the forth one on.
Thanks again to RB, who printed (repeatedly) all the decals for me.
Forgive me for going on and on.... Hope you will like the latest, Colour of the Samurai!
