Title: Daemon Primarch Magnus the Red (wip)
Post by: drakmar on August 18, 2018, 09:36:01 PM
I have started building Magnus the Red Daemon Prince of Chaos.

Most uploads will be more frequently posted on my FB page www.facebook.com/drakmarsfoundry

I aim to be wearing stilts (18") and the horns are about 3' tall.  With the wings and everything I will be about 10' tall with a 12' wingspan.

This looks like it will be an impressive build once completed.

What are you going to use for stilts? Making your own or purchasing something?

 Cheers.  I will be buying some plasterers stilts.  My White Scar uses wooden platforms... They are not great for mobility.

I'll be curious to hear your feedback on the plasterers stilts. I have 11" wooden/pvc stilts for my Dark Angel armor and I agree with you, not great for mobility.

Feedback is easy. They are amazing.  Becosplay (angel of vengeance) uses them.  He can almost run in them.  He has done some extra things to the feet.

More progress.  Using Polyfiller to smooth out the horns.

Redoing the crown out of quality foam.  about 3mm dense foam I think from Lumins.

more horn work.

I found wearing latex gloves dipped in laundry detergent/water frequently allows me to smooth them out great.
