Upping my Game

So. Happy New Year.

So while I was developing my Grysyn project I decided that I wanted to make a display plinth of some sort.

I started out with some random boxes to build up some sort of idea of what the display will look like..

Thinking about it I was full of flu at the time so the boxes aren't really that random after all.

I bought some pre-cut 3mm thick mdf from ebay, cut some holes to make the bases appear flush and then started messing around with some hirst arts casts I had around..

I mainly used pipes to conjure up an industrial feeling then added some corner pieces for a bit of variety.

I then covered all exposed areas with various textured material. I used the wallpaper stuff that I use for many of my bases and some steel patterned plasticard. I also used some (wanting for a better description) stripy textured plasticard for the walls.

There is the final mock up with the team in place.

The Main Man

Finally the ringmaster....

Another ogre dude, but with a top hat..

I thought I would show some WIP in progress because I am quite pleased with the result.

I used some strips of plasticard to form the outline of the coat, then filled out the gaps with greenstuff to make it more overcoaty.

The gun is from the ork warlord kit. I know, the barrels need drilling.

Really like this guy! Well apart from the top hat, which hasn't quite turned out the way I thought.

Cousin Sniper Dude

I built this sniper dude using parts from the ogre kingdoms range..

I really like the way he turned out and I think that he makes a better ratling sniper type than those dwarf based models that I made a while back. Oh well. Ho hum.

Grumpy Grandad

Next up for the Gryson family we have a wizened preacher type...

The only change that I made was to build some sort of reliquary type thing onto the end of the staff. I guess he could double up as either a psycher or preacher.

Big Sis

Dick Grayson has a big sis. In this merry band she is some sort of psycher type. and is represented by a fig from hasslefree miniatures..

I didn't add anything else to this model. Don't think it needs it!

A Theme Emerges

So I built the assassin dudes. Awesome. But then I was kind of stuck for a theme that would tie the collection of miscreants together. I was proper stuck, but then it hit me..


But I need to change the name slightly, so they became the Grysyns... Much more 40kish!

Yup, I'm sure it has been done before, but it hasn't by me, so I thought that I would use this as the theme. I guess the most important element would be Dick Grayson himself. I checked out various models on offer, and perhaps unsurprisingly, there were not that many 10 or 11 year old child models available. 

Anyway, I found this guy from the Malifaux range, added some bits, and boom, future nightwing is born...

All I did was swap out the spear head for something more dark elar-y, along with the shoulder pad. I added a book on his back and then sculpted a book holster tpye thing from greenstuff.
