|Our presence remakes the past.
Having made some molds, built some mock-ups, and written some background, we are thrilled to finally show everyone some completed Spireguard from the 73rd Thorn Moon! Even more exciting, however, we get to announce that the esteemed Polysmith (one of the nicest and most talented hobbyists you will ever find!) has collaborated with us to make them into a reality! An accomplished 3d designer and sculptor, he designed and printed a range of stunning female heads to help build our Thorn Moon defenders. After being disappointed with the scale of the new Necromunda Escher models, we needed to find a new source for supplying us with a large number of suitable heads for the models. The Polysmith quickly came to mind, due to his skill with 3d design and his imaginative conversions that take GW models and turn them into something completely unrecognizable (his work on Instagram speaks for itself). He graciously agreed to help us and created a series of remarkable sculpts. Below are pictures of the initial renders and some of the final models built with them!
|A selection of characterful heads designed by the Polysmith.
|We wanted all of the Spireguard to have a lot of equipment, suggesting that they are truly prepared for jungle warfare.
|The Polysmith-designed heads are filled with character, imparting life into the models!
|The gasmasks that we created from ruststalker heads turned out quite well!
|Each of the warriors also has a sidearm that fires solid rounds, in case they run out of powercells for their lasrifles.
|I converted a pistol that would actually fit into her thigh holster.
|And also converted an empty holster to go with the pistol arm!
These are only the first few models that I created for the Thorn Moon defenders. With the molds and the Polysmith’s various female heads, I plan to start building a lot more, allowing me to create a small army! Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Finally, I want to thank the Polysmith again for all of his help, these Spireguard could never have been made without his support!
