Very nice, especially like the chain with the handcuffs of the slave. A further idea to steal :)

it's a simple cheap necklace with two small wire for the handcuffs and the job is done.

I use superglue to make the chain rigid. So you can have some interesting poses with a flying chain in the air if needed !

like this chap (hell's angel conversion from......) :



do you recognize this figurine ?

Interesting idea to use a metal leaf for the dressing. What sort of metal leaf is it?

hello prof,

it's a very soft material (kind of lead) founded in a hobby decorative shop. could be use for floral art etc.....

It's come in roll and can be press, cut, painted, bent, etc.....

I'm not a great fan of milliput ( mix, sculpt, finger track on the material etc....) so i used it instead of.

I make cloak or change the movement of the cloak for example. See my urban cohorte for example.

i make sombrero/hat here :

Not a bad idea, indeed. But is that leaf not too flexible for the later use of the figures? I think, you can easily bend it again touching the miniature while gaming.

you are right so i glue it with a mix of superglue and neoprene glue (like pattex) and i cover all the surface with a glue-varnish. When it' dry, the objet is hard and it's no more flexible.
For a flying cloak in the wind , you shall be more cautious. I use paper clip cut and it wrap into the cloak, drill and glue into the figurine.

they are based upon some BTD Persian range.

They did look very persian so they gave me the idea to be converted into something lightly different.
