Welcome to the final installment of “Sleep is for the weak, and well-rested,” also known as the Hellforged. This week we take on Typhon, king of the beasts, the three-headed wonder-weasel of doom 🙂 For this last go-round, I took lots and lots and lots of pics, so most are medium sized right now and clickable for larger.
Let’s get cutting . . .
We start with a fine basting of . . . wait, wrong blog post. We start with the resin body of a Behemoth I had leftover from another conversion, or I just raided my Behemoth kit. Either way, this is our base. I cut the shoulders off (well, break accidentally) to give Typhon more shoulder space.
The rest of his basic body. Cut, cut, cut, carve, carve, carve.
He’s got leeeeeegs, he knows how to use them . . . especially a partially steampunked one . . .
He’s a brick . . . houuuuse, he’s mighty, mighty, with a lot of space hanging out.
The front gets mounted on! Sorry, too easy to make jokes on this one. No challenge.
You are the wind beneath my stunted, blighted wings. Or spikes. This is why I was expanding the shoulders, to fit the leftover Carnivean spikes from the Ravagore kit.
Now you feel me, eh? The arm-holes from the behemoth shoulderpads are a good fit for the multiple Typhon necks, and the bolt on the back is the spot I put the arms. I want him to be mighty. I want him to be fearful.
He continues to grow larger than his cat-bed.
Another glamour angle sot, showing his flesh fill-ins.
Hey, remember that shot of the Hex Hunters? Yeah, for some reason it’s the only shot I have of the completed not-primed model. Note the extra metal spikes (Seether I think) on the shoulder where his dinky Behemoth spikes would normally go.
Look, Ma, I’m primed, and my flesh has a base-coat!
Here we see the metal bits and the black before their wash and re-highlight. He is far too shiny and happy right now!
So let’s make him Hellish! FINISH HIM!
There he is, big as sin and twice as fun!
So what does the entire Hellforged look like all together? Hang on to your monitor cables . . .
That’s it, the entire 50 point Hardcore army, donated by Adam van Camp and painted and modded by yours truly, Timothy Black (aka Mercykiller).
Remember, this entire Hardcore army, Battlefoam bag, and custom Broken Egg template set for it can be won at the raffle hosted by Dark Omen for their Boost for a Cure event on October 17th, 2015!
(Yes, I know technically that’s the same point, but I thought it was such a biggie that it bore repeating 😛 )
Remember, this is all for charity, so even if you’re not going, rustle up a trusted source that is and get in on this once-in-a-lifetime chance to win this army!
