Thanks guys! Really liked how the Solitaire came out too
can't take credit for the idea for the hair though as that's something I've shamelessly lifted form someone else (who due to my poor memory will have to remain nameless)
The face-cutting-off thing sounds drastic but it's fairly simple when you're gluing a Harlie mask over the top
no need to be particularly finessed about it
Not a daft question at all
the issue is that in the Harlequin kit all of the special weapons (and swords for that matter) are right-handed. I started off with the idea of cutting off the Kiss from a right arm and gluing it onto a pistol arm that had the pistol clipped off.
However, when I was looking through the Harlie kit for a suitable pistol arm, I stumbled on the Kiss arm that was fully outstretched and thought 'aside from the hand that looks identical to a left arm'.
Also, one of the most helpful things that the guys that make the models do is put little bangles/rings on wrists. That means you can get a nice clean cut, glue another hand on and no-one will be able to see the break where the two disparate bits are stuck together
I can't wait to get my hands on the new stuff either! I've had a bit of an idea for 'not-Malys' as well. I'm thinking of hacking away at her skirt so it looks a bit more tattered, and then painting it to be made of flayed skin like the Archon's skin cloak
might see what I can do to make it look like it's sewn together as well
