Rorkes Drift Diorama Progress Empty
PostSubject: Rorkes Drift Diorama Progress   Rorkes Drift Diorama Progress EmptySun Jul 25, 2010 11:12 am

The grass was knee-high so I bought a soldering gun and soldered a pin to every Zulus foot. I bought some teddy bear fur and then proceeded to spray paint it green although I believe I chose the wrong green. Under the teddy bear fur is insulation foam. It is a complete sucess and now that I solved the problem of allowing the figures to be moveable in knee-high grass iam now in the mass production phase. I have been working on this rather peicemeal and am now starting to get focused as the kinks are starting to be solved.

The Zulu weapons shaft are to thick on the figures so I have been trimming them down. I cannot trim them down as much as i would like for the shafts are then easily broken and weak. I have to cut the ball on the Knokberry off and apply a glob of paint at the end to represent the ball.

The wood pole on the zulu frame I also trimmed down for a more proportional and realistic look.

These Zulus are not the fleshtone iam going to be using but will keep them as is.

For future refrence on my progress. if I dont feel it exactly deserves a new post II will just add pictures to photobucket. I will do this about every week.

https://s638.photobucket.com/home/songofonions/index There is one good picture of the change in weapon size and that is picture zulu44. The coloring is not right but a good representation of the size difference and it looks like a need to add more paint onto the ball.

I uploaded some pics. Iam holding off on finishing the helmets for that is where I grab them by. As soon as I get paid I will start working on the terrain. I would take better pictures but I ran out of clear coat mat varnish so repeatedly touching them takes paint off the miniatures.
