If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may have already seen some pictures of this project, and even if you aren’t a Twitterer (Tweeter?). This is for local player Danny, who plays all things broken (Cryx, Haley2 double Stormwall), and currently has his sights set on Circle Orboros. Like many of my local players, Danny knows that if he entices me with a challenge, I’ll usually take the bait.
An Extreme Ghetorix is nothing new, and has been done before. The threads I looked at for inspiration were this one and this one. The first has some WIP pictures halfway down that helped with my placement of the horns on his head. The second one really make me think about whether or not to do the headdress at all. I’d also found some examples where the arms had been bent around some to make the conversion easier, but in my opinion the model is too complex to re-work the lines of motion formed by the twisting body and limbs – I didn’t want that complex of a project.
