The first thing you’ll notice (maybe), since the first update is that I changed the rider’s legs. I had a pair of Chaos Knight legs that I decided to try on there and they fit really well around the Cold One. I had to cut off the back of the actual Cold One’s saddle and do some sculpting to fill in the void. This is preliminary work and I’ll be smoothing out transitions in the next round of updates.
You’ll also notice I started on the base. Note, right now the Cold One is pinned to the base by one foot so I could position things and he’s a bit lopsided as a result. I have to pin the other foot later. Anyway, my bases are generally on the bland side so I thought I’d step it up on this one since there’s so much room to play with. Since the point of the Steed is to get Outflank I thought it would be cool to give the impression it’s sneaking in through some dense terrain. Later on the sand will go down and then snow and ice to finish it off. I think it will look cool once it’s all done.
Now I wait on the green stuff to dry and then fix a few things there then move on to priming this thing and start painting it soon I hope.
