Mad Bodgin’ Mage Log: The Skull Knight (Vlad)

This log is on a project that was completed back in May 2013.
The plan was to take the 3 versions of Vlad, and turn them into something resembling this guy:

The Skull Knight from the Berserk series, his badassery and backstory make him a viable choice to represent Vlad on the table.

First up on the choppin’ block: pVlad.

As time went on, I liked the job I did on the guy less and less. Every time I saw him, it made me think he was either powerin’ up like a Sayjin, or soiling his armour.

So… I tore him apart. (I didn’t strip the paint job though. I do MANY things one shouldn’t do when bodgin’.) I then made him stand up straighter, and I kinda’ took a drill to his face. The new head is from a Thrall warrior. After that came the cape, which was all greystuff. I also gave him an Ulan shield.

Next up was this guy:

I went for a pose similar to Eddard Stark’s in the Game of Thrones promotional material:

This involved hacking the arms apart and greenstuffing new fingers. I then took off the tip of the sword, so it’s embedded in the ground.

I got the cape on before placing the shoulder pads. All of the plastic bits were taken from Reaper’s “Bones” line.

Then the paint job:

Finally, the Horselord:

I want to build a Guts out of the Butcher, but while the rules would be appropriate, the weapon and physique make the bodge difficult. That, and I currently have 5 Butchers.

That’s a bodgin’
