GB 72 - Sprue Throne finished

Post by Guildenstern » Thu Jul 07, 2016 4:06 pm

Working out how to go about this, but as soon as Nappen started this, I thought of this idea:

So, yes, Guildy is literal ^_^ It's Sprues for the Sprue Throne!

Interesting idea! Start by having the basic throne and then just keep adding sprue carved weapons and some left-over choppas if you have any. Looking forward to see how it comes together!

Random sprues I think. I don't have enough swords to do the original, but I figure I can carve a few to look similiar - or pointy anyway? Trying to figure out about how big it needs to be now. I have a couple bazillion sprue '2X4's all cleaned up now, so should have the framework together soon!

Ok so pic dump - finally working on this again!

And, traitor hands, apparently decided to disregard brain and started making something more resembling a war litter.... I guess it's going to be for Warlord! granted that's been in the back of my mind for a while now. So, anyway, I guess it's a Sprue Throne carried into battle now. lol

Image

So, I actually started working on this the night before, and some of the pieces didn't end up making it into the design (yet anyway).


Image

^^ Here's the basic framework (and a bit not used there in the upper right)


Image

^^ Here is a later stage, with lots of spiky bits added because of course you don't want anyone clambering onto your warlitter/throne! And it was inspired by the original picture of the sword throne idea as well.


Image

^^ Here's a front view, with "wood" planks and the chair itself. Both the back of the 'chair' and the upright pieces on the platform itself were just bits of sprue I liked the look of - very almost mechanical? I think I may try to add some cables connecting them but we'll see if I can get my little GS former blocks to work. May need more practrice than I have time for.


Image

^^ Same stage, just a side view.

It's looking amazing and properly ramshackle!

Wow, coming on strong!

As for rules, i,d say rerolls on all morale checks for any unit within 12 inches, of the same type that a character is seated upon the throne!

that house rule would rock, definitely be useful

anyway, here's progress - slow but sure sigh

Image

Still figuring out which direction I want to set the chair on top - it's backwards atm, compared to how I had it previously. I haven't glued it down yet, so I can paint it. I think it actually fits better the other way, with the spikes in front instead of the shields but anyway still WIP
