WIP 'Grey Seer Skrittar' (2)

Mark's work on the 'Skrittar' sculpt continues, and the palanquin has started to take shape. Mark explains:

'The basic torso is now shaped, next will come the arms and then the shoulder robe (almost looks like a poncho really) can go on. So the staff arm and the body will soon be joined together.

The palanquin has really taken shape now. The carry loops for the wooden rods will be fully circular when finished and the very front edge of the palanquin needs finishing with a row of spikes, and the back will be built up around the central spine (literally!). There are also finishing details such as rivet heads to go on now as well.

With the rods in place, the palanquin bearers can now be set into posture. The key is going to be making it look like they're carrying the weight and not just walking under a hovering chair.'

As usual you can click on the images for a larger view. Click on the reference artwork to go to the Games Workshop website where you can buy the book ('Uniforms and Heraldry of the Skaven') it was taken from.
