I got tired of trying to find more bonesword for my swarmlord, so I started making them, despite my earlier rather pitifull attempts of trying to sculpt hard plastic. First I tried to use some random piece I found, but the pastic was too soft.
It came out fine though, so I guess I'll use it, but the work was really annoying so I racked my brain; where I could get tha same plastic that the models are made? At least a sword sized piece.
Then I got it: the top of the predator piece that comes with the rhino set. Its a bit thing, but I figured it is gonna need some greenstuffing anyway, so I gave it a go.
First cut the shape of the sword:
Then sharpen it:
Cut the places of the "teeth" in place:
Then sharpen those with a very thin round file:
That's how far I've gotten, still need to do the greenstuffing, and make the hand. I was thinking of making a tutorial pdf of this, complete with pics of tools needed and everything. Oh, and crop the pics, they have been taken with my cell phone's camera.
What do you think?
