Mainly as a means of extra motivation, Im taking Mike's lead and will be adding ongoing Twilight projects here. Please forgive me if my postings are quite sporadic.

On the "corks" at present are 2 mounted herders. These will have arm options, one spear and the other not quite decided yet. They are based on the 2 herders already available.

Progressed a little more on these 2 guys. The clothed one has had the cuffs of his pants done and his collar finished. Other one has had the bulk thinned out leaving the body shape and a belt. Contemplating what extra shoulder bits to add. Fancy a furr on one and maybe a cowboy style scarf on the other. Want to toy with ideas for the front of the saddle too. Want it larger but dont want it to end up looking a bit rude. I want a blanket roll too but struggling to find roon at the back.

It's okay, they don't have those rude bits  Cheesy

Well that is true but you try to stop people laughing at a large phallus shape saddle horn. (no pun intended)

Good to hear about the progress! The details sound like fun (except for the phallic saddle horn...).
I had the same problem with a blanket roll on the Heavy knight captain and ended up just scrapping the idea as I simply couldn't get it to fit.

Am I allowed to ask what measurements the armatures you use are?

Thats a good question actually. The original herders I did were scaled from a drawing Mike sent me along with some other Fubarnii for reference. They did end up a little large though.
These were kept smaller and match up better with the ones Mike has done though tbh there wasnt that much difference, just enough to make me want to keep an eye on it. Adjustments are made while sculpting as well. I drew crude bones and joints on the Fubarnii front and side views and scaled from that but it wasnt quite right. I suppose base armature dimensions would be handy for us. Mike might have that already.

If your going to scratch sculpt your own then I suggest using an original model and measuring the lengths yourself and using the original as a reference while sculpting.

Looks good to me! Smiley
Are you going to leave a few suitable points to attach the bolas/lasso/holstered knife or are you going to sculpt them onto the model?

Definitely. Im leaning towards the sheaved knife being a permenant addition and a couple of spaces for the others. Knife will be on a belt loop, may mirror that to the other side for the bolas/lasso. I dont want the model to be too busy while at the same time keeping a nomadic feel to the kit, hence the blanket roll and "awning" roll.

Another option would be do ditch the roll at the front opening up space for stuff. A basic backpack could be added that has the roll on it too. This could also be usefull for other models. Dont think it fits the light cavalry thinking behind these guys.

Got a bit more done on these guys today. Mainly the top half of the front of the saddle like the mock up last pic. Also did the blanket roll on the one with the bags. The other has had baggage added more like sacks than the first ones. Want to get the hooves done next then some clothing detail. Oh and maybe some arms lol.
Pics to follow asap.

Good to hear that! I've been sprue-ing up herder weapons this morning, which might be helpful when it comes to finishing off these guys  Smiley

Now hurry up with those pics  Wink

was it only me that saw those figures and for a moment thought "those figures have very strange penises with faces on them?" Sad
