Striking Scorpions Wraith Lord

Post by redfinger » Tue May 17, 2011 4:39 pm

So here it is, all done! It is supposed to be a Striking Scorpion Wraith Lord.

Image

The commission was a bit more challenging and time consuming that I thought it would be. All of the dreadlocks were rolled by hand, the chainsword needed to be scratch built, the Britelance converted to a rifle, and the legs and torso re-sculpted to the positions that they are in.

Originally I was given this photo of a Wraith Lord as a guide of what the customer wanted, and as great as the original conversion was, I felt like I wanted to do something that conveyed more of a sense of motion and "striking".

Sadly I will not be painting this guy as much as I would like to, but I will make sure and post some pictures of it painted when the client sends them to me.

If you would like to see more pictures of the completed Wraith Lord, or check out wip phtos visit my blog!

Just saw this on your blog. Very "striking". (Pardon the pun.) Great work on this one. :)

Very nice piece. He kind of reminds me of a predator with the locks and that pose. You could swap out a spear and there you go.

Duct-taping a Flamer to your Boltgun does not count as a Combi-weapon, and painting it pretty won't make it "Master Crafted"
