Wings?AGPO 11-30-2007

I've had an idea for some fury conversions but don't want to shell out for GW wings. Does anyone know either a good method for making them or a UK firm - 've had bad experiences with international shipping - that makes them cheaply?

My best guess would be to visit a local toy shop. Currently, fantasy-ish models such as dragons and knights are quite often to be found in such stores, and they are incredibly cheap (if you are used to GW prices, that is).

I saw before that somebody had the idea of using sycamore seeds as wings, I thought it was a great idea although it may not be exactly what you're looking for.



hope that worked.

RE: Wings?WarplockMonkey 12-02-2007

I think you would have to give them a few coats of super glue to make them tough enough

I heard of a guy who used real dragonfly wings on a model, he said he put something like 30 layers of nail varnish on then

Got an idea for that model you've always wanted to make, but couldn't find the means to convert it? Seen that bit of artwork and thought 'That would be an awesome model'? Give Warplock a PM, any sculpting/converting request considered Wink

The idea with the seeds is brilliant! These could be easily copied in silicone and cast in clear resin. Not that I have good experience with using clear resin... maybe Citadel water F/X could do the same job too. ^^

How would I go about resin casting?

Its about $30 US, and it would mean my CDs would have to go on hold for another month. What with other commitments and only being able to work around my studies funds are VERY limited for modelling

RE: Wings?Grimstonefire 12-06-2007

If you use the metal casing you get around wine bottle corks (a few of them round this time of year Wink), its quite durable.You can also use the metal you get on those tubes of tomato puree.Not as much fun as wine though.

Lol.

Cut to a suitable shape, and with some greenstuff on as the cartilage parts it would make good fleshy wings.Or glue some wire on.

Never realised before, but those furies could make some cool werewolves without the wings.

RE: Wings?AGPO 12-06-2007

Thanks for the tip grim, and you're right about the Furies. Will give that one a go over the holidays.

Basically I made an exalted champion out of a few bitz I had lying around, and someoe commented that he looked like he should have wings. I agreed and, having way too many chaos champions already, made a couple more of these guys and decided they would work as furies. only trouble is at the moment they are without wings. If nothing else works I'll turn them into Tzeentch bestigor
