Thanks for the comments guys.
Hmm, interesting. The bird looks pretty good, actually.
Maybe some more color would help.
I used black first because it is the easiest to do. I also have a pair of white wings and there are tan available still on the website. Maybe if I get bold enough I can try a multicolored parrot. I always wanted to see a blue and yellow one.
You know, it hadn't actually crossed my mind to use the brickwarrior wings as actual bird wings... rather than figure accessories. I wonder if a brick built bird might work better?
I have seen brick built ones and they look great for decoration like I've seen Mark of Falworth use in some MOCs. I've always preferred molded animals to brick built ones.
I actually think the bird turned out pretty good. It looks like it's just swooping in for a landing. The wing connection points looks pretty good. I think I would try reshaping the "disk" at the base of the wing to make it look a little more natural though.
The next time I try it, I think I will drill the holes bigger so that the wings sit in deeper and look more natural. I originally wanted then to just attach so they could be movable and not have to be glued. Luckily, I used a dark gray bird as a base and those are the ones I have the most of and are the cheapest on BL I think.
The female archer might be my favorite female minifig I have ever made to date. She needs a little bit of work, but I'm pretty happy with her.
