Yes, it's that model that I made from Escape from Goblin Town set with a lizardmen miniature to boot.
I knew from my original plans that I was going to make this a collaboration between goblin and lizardman, as in my game, the two races are allies who live in the same realm. Of course, this was basically me wanting to represent this collaboration, though The Scribe is good for nothing more than directing how to use the machinery.
I felt that since I wouldn't be using The Goblin Scribe, it would be good to use his model rather than use up a perfectly good Goblin model. Can't say the same about the Lizardmen though, aye?
What was the order of things? I first put together the platform for The Goblin Scribe, minus that beam thing and the wheel... and the scribe himself. Then I moulded some green putty into a long string like shape and attached it to either end of the beam, allowing it to hang out in the direction I wanted by leaning the piece against the wall overnight.
Next I glued the platform to a large base using model super glue from Modelzone, and waited a while for that to dry before beginning to look for the perfect position for my lizardman. I wanted him doing something, not just standing around with fighting gear. So the perfect thing for him was to be loading the slingshot. Originally I wondered if he should have his shield and weapon on, but instead I opted to have the shield leant against one of the posts, and will be adding a sword on the platform at a later date.
This done, I used green putty to wedge two platform posts onto the base, securing the goblin scribe on them for his directing position. Then I covered the base in green paste before using green putty to form the rocks that would be used as ammo.
What do you think of it? I'm quite pleased with it actually.
So, that's all for today. A lot of text in this post, I must say. Hopefully not too much for you guys. Hope you enjoyed it, and look forward to the next one.
