Title: Chaos Knight (worbla)
Post by: Drack on February 05, 2015, 06:39:38 PM
Hey guys and gals. I just started a new build and thought this would be the best place to show what I've been up to. I am making the Tzeentch Knight in the pic but won't be sticking to Tzeentch colours or making the sword (duel axes instead). I will be doing some tutorials soon but as worbla is new to me I wanted to know I could use the stuff before showing others how. I was going to do the tutorials when making my pauldrons but running low on worbla so have done a pictures tutorial on some of the "belt" (coming soon once put together with text). I will do some video tutorials when I make the axes as I have enough worbla left to make them :)

Really awesome. I'm about to start using Worbla for the first time, seems fun. Cant wait to see the final product. I'll definitely keep my eye on this one

Good to see you here Tom & great to see One of the other God's being represented.  Lovely work.

Someone finally doing some Fantasy work! Excellent!

The detail work you've put into that chest piece already has me adding this to my watch list.

Must echo that I'm glad to see someone else doing a follower of Tzeentch... Not that I'm partial or anything... ;)

Question: Are you going for the full lighted areas on the armor as well? ie are you going to light it? If it's not too much of a spoiler what color scheme were you planning on going with?
Title: Re: Chaos Knight (worbla)
Post by: Drack on February 08, 2015, 05:44:27 AM
Thank you guys :)

Pheonix I am afraid I am not sticking with Tzeentch. I am more of a Khorne man at heart but if I was writing a profile for him he wouldn't quite be Khorne either as the armour isn't typical Khorne style. I guess he would be a none specific champion that was making his way towards Khorne. As for lighting that's a must. I am planning on having runes inscribed on the inside of the collar that flicker lick candle light that hopefully in the dark will light the sides of the helmet. I will dropping the sword as not keen on it and making 2 axes with demons fighting on them and tortured souls on the handles which I start this week :)
Title: Re: Chaos Knight (worbla)
Post by: PhoenixRevival on February 08, 2015, 04:59:49 PM
Yey lighting!

Boo Khorne! lol

Just kidding. Looking forward to seeing this progress... even if it isn't for the glory of Tzeentch. ^_^

Bit more done :)
Once the Tassets and a little detail on the shoulders are done I will start the pair of axes.

This build makes me want to buy a whole lot of worbla!!! Such incredible detail. I get shocked sometimes seeing how well worbla can be sculpt... almost like clay... into whatever you want. Eagerly waiting for more pics!!

The horns are looking great. Did you use foam or cardboard for the base you sprayed your spray foam on?
Title: Re: Chaos Knight (worbla)
Post by: Drack on May 21, 2015, 06:08:53 AM
I did start to make them from card but foam worked best cause I could heat and bend it to the desired curves.

Hey guys and gals. I was going to wail till I have both pauldrons covered but couldn't wait. I will do a video when I do the dragon heads on the pads and the horns cause the bases for them are pretty standard techniques that many have done videos of on youtube.

Been a while but thought I'd update on some additions I did a few months ago. The neck piece has been widened as it was too tight but next set of pictures will show that. I have commissions on at the momment but once they are finished I will get back on with MY armour

Post by: Drack on September 27, 2015, 12:44:43 PM
Thank you guys glad you like it :)

Did a little bit more to the suit recently. I didn't like the collar for 2 reasons.

1. It didn't look right
2. I couldn't move my head much.

I modified it and did some work on the helmet. Here's where I am at.

Oh good. I was wondering how much head movement you were going to get. Glad you modded that.

Now I'm just going to sit back and ogle that 'After' picture for a bit.

Hey guys and gals. Sorry it's been a while but you know life and all that. I have added some detailing to the horns and started the dragon heads on the shoulders. I have some photos I need to upload of a step by step on how I made them.

I'm curious. Have you done a test fitting yet? How is the weight of it?
Title: Re: Chaos Knight (worbla)

Woof! Thanks for these pictures.

No worries :)

I'm curious. Have you done a test fitting yet? How is the weight of it?

Would be mad to not wear it all as I made it really :)
The weight is fine it's just foam with a 1mm thick plastic covering. The helmet is a little heavier than I'd like due to the horns and detailing but it'll be a small price to pay. Maybe one day I will mould it and do a cast to reduce the weight so my neck doesn't get too sore.

Some detailing done on the shoulders and helmet, hope you like :)

Yeah it is rather a lot! It's worth it though. All of my foam cosplays have suffered the tolls of being stored in a room full of junk so this time I wanted one that would last. You are right about raising my arms I do poke my self in the head a bit :)
