#487124 Minifig Showcase!

Posted by Nightstalker on 18 May 2018 - 07:29 PM

Today's a short post...

 

So let's DO IT!!!

 

MINIFIG TIME!!!

 

27330265717_aee1babbb8_z.jpg

 

Aria Vae, High Priestess of the Holy Blade

 

27330265677_9d2629aa5f_z.jpg

 

As usual, let's cover the custom bits. First off, decals by Saber-Scorpion! Been meaning to order a set of these for a while. For those who don't know, they are based off of the Destiny 1 exotic chest piece, Heart of the Praxic Fire. The arms were based off of the Y1 Iron Banner Warlock set. Moving along, the loincloth is from Arealight Customs, the coat is from CapeMadness, and the gun is a prototype Brickarms Fusion Rifle. Yeah, that thing still isn't out, and it was made almost four years ago!

 

So, here Nightstalker goes again with this Order of the Holy Blade junk again. Aria is the leader of the Holy Blade. If her last name seems familiar it's because she's Fenix's super great descendant. Apart from being Champion of Leik, Aria also possesses the full power of the Dark Maiden. "Hey wait, up! Doesn't that mean she's..." Yep you guessed it, she's also related to Saleena Fale. I'll let you work that one out. Anywho, that witch/magic side of her can be seen by the distinct purple highlights in her hair. While I won't give away the story of how she got to this position, I will say that she is commonly referred to as, "The Last Light."

Nobleman Dalton (left) and Amanon (your other left).

 

Somehow recorded by a member of the FFA...

 

Arena Herald: "Sir, I've got good news!"

 

Arena Master: "We finally became sell outs!?"

 

AH: "Uh... no... we got a pre-order and another combatant!"

 

AM: "FANTASTIC!!! Another suck... I mean, another patron of our fine establishment! Who are they now?"

 

AH: "We've got Nobleman Dalton, who happens to be sponsoring this combatant, Amanon."

 

AM: "Never heard of either of 'em!"

 

AH: "I think Amanon slew a dark lord..."

 

AM: "Listen, I'll believe it when I see it in the arena. Do you know how many people claim they killed this and that..."

 

AH: "I mean, there was a cool mural of him in a newspaper..."

 

AM: "Whatever, just make sure they both get here safely! And that Nobleman better be rich! We don't let beggars and vagabonds in!"

#487114 Dalton's Assorted Artwork and Random Stuff

Posted by Nightstalker on 12 May 2018 - 07:49 PM

There's too much to like in this update.

 

Between the Wulfgard-style "HEYA" meme to the Old School LEGO drawing, I just smiled.

 

Of course seeing my two characters go head to head is always great! Keep up the awesome work!




#487100 Minifig Showcase!

Posted by Nightstalker on 11 May 2018 - 04:23 PM

NO TIME TO EXPLAIN!!!

 

MINIFIGS!!!

 

42046662201_1b4f6398e3_z.jpg

 

Executioner Blackholm, Maukr Death Knight

 

42046662341_dc29438e32_z.jpg

 

Unique parts include BrickWarriors Spiked Vambraces, BrickWarriors Executioner's Axe, and an Arealight Customs Loincloth.

 

Hey! It's another person associated with the Maukr Marauders! Sooo... who is he? Blackholm was once a barbarian of the Highlands who joined the Maukr long before Necros took over. When Necros rose to power, Blackholm was chosen to execute those that stood against the warlock. Unfortunately for him, he was killed in an assault by one of the knight's of Korsven. Rather than let him go, Necros brought him back as a death knight. Now imbued with unholy magic, Blackholm carries out his master's vile will.

 

27180536997_6cb770de3d_z.jpg

 

Alandra, The Curio Peddler

 

Surprisingly, no special parts used with this figure!

 

Alandra is a rather odd being. No one is quite certain where she comes from, or where she goes. Certain priests and paladins have sensed a demonic aura around her, but it is one that is unlike any demons of nightmare. Despite this, she is quite friendly. Her wares are also quite unique as well. A mix of valuable potions and legendary gear seem to end up in her possession. However, Alandra has no need for coin. Instead, she seeks unusual crystals, which have unknown properties.

 

She has no family, no demon kin, and no history. It's almost as though she doesn't exist.

Mercer Harun, Leader of the Crimson Blades

 

42046662251_6cccc221b8_z.jpg

 

Weapon, shield, and headwrap by BrickWarriors. Shawl and waist cloth by Arealight Customs.

 

You got me on this one :P
 

Just a cool custom I came up with this week! Backstory is still in progress!

 

 

 

:) BONUS TIME :)

 

40239135670_3f11715e57_z.jpg

 

Lord Marcus Capulet

 

"I'm not certain who he is, or what he does. Most of it is just hear say. Rumors say that he hunts magic users. Other rumors say he polices a lair home to various scorpions and werewolves. And yet, other rumors say that he is an agent of discord. Honestly, I don't quite care; he looks cool, and he's a lord. Send him an invite! Let him enjoy a day of blood shed!"

#487087 Custom Miniatures!

Posted by Nightstalker on 07 May 2018 - 11:34 AM

Alright,

 

I know I have absolutely no reason to be posting in the art section! But here me out on this one, because it's cool!

 

Among the many things on SSLF that I see are ads. We all hate 'em, especially me! However, on a random whim I decided to investigate one of them. That one link was for Hero Forge, a site where you can design your own miniatures. I played around with it for a bit, because it's a neat little site.

 

Then I showed my bro (who will be referred to as AfroMan)...

 

Let's just say, he took off with this and is loving this! It has given him a fun little hobby, and honestly, I rather like his work! So I figure, why not show you all, and hear some feedback!

 

While I won't give away who these people are or the stories behind them, I will say that are from a work of his own creation.

 

So without further ado, here they are!

#487072 Nightstalker's Junk

Posted by Nightstalker on 04 May 2018 - 01:46 PM

*Dusts off the old workshop*

 

Alright Lords and Ladies of SSLF!!! 

 

The Kingdom of Faermoore is proud to present the latest edition in dwarf artillery. May I present to you:

 

The Faermoore Organ Gun!

 

40085404970_fd52382e50_z.jpg

 

Huge inspiration on the barrel design from DwalinF and his amazing organ gun:

 

https://dwalinf.devi...n-gun-644819679

 

Now with that out of the way, I really like how this gun turned out. With the way it is currently designed, its wheels can roll and the two center barrels can be adjusted. 

 

41849689092_2817b37c15_z.jpg

 

When designing the support frame, I wanted to make it nice and sturdy and give it a war feel. Additional armor with some pearl, gold, 1x1, round plates really helped add some meat to it. To top it off, gold harpoons were also added, even if they virtually have no purpose. Still looks pretty cool to me!

 

41849689002_2d75331848_z.jpg

 

In order to make the gun slightly more ornate, I went ahead and added gold wings to the side. Again, no real purpose, just aesthetics. The wheels were pretty simple to make as well. I worked through multiple designs, but settled on this. In the end, it got the job done and still looks pretty good.

 

41892563571_4b0ca53255_z.jpg

 

Just a view of the back, not really much to see here!

 

41849688912_9679cef97d_z.jpg

 

Here's the more interesting part about the frame. It's roughly split into 7 different sections: 2 wheels, 2 supports, 2 armor panels, and 1 set of spikes. They are all mounted on a Technic 8 Axle. If you look closely, you'll notice small gaps between each part. This allowed me to move the two supports around (which is where the gun is mounted) to fit the design of the organ gun. This method was pretty cheap, and didn't require any sacrifice of design. The only thing I had to worry about was making everything fit comfortably!

 

41849688802_bc41f38950_z.jpg

 

Still love DwalinF's barrel design. Honestly, its the fish part that does it for me. Awesome parts usage!

 

41849688672_f9d8be81ef_z.jpg

 

As with all artillery...

 

Why have one?

When I can make seven...

 

Hope you enjoyed the MOC.

 

Decals by Saber-Scorpion

Inspiration from DwalinF

C&C is welcome and appreciated!!!
