Shredder and Splinter WiP
« on: 14 February 2024, 00:31:55 »
Working on some additions to my Turbie force. 

Original though for Splinter was a tossup between a Wolfhound or a Panther.  Was leaning more to the Panther for Splinter's origin of a Ronin, as the Wolfhound was more LC.  Also the wolhound head I would have preferred was on a older metal mini and I wanted to keep using the new sculpts.  Someone mentioned Yen-Lo-Wang for Shredder because of the claw, and I thought that would have been a good idea to run with.

Didn't have a spare Yen-Lo-Wang, but did pick up a Wight by some serendipitous chance from the place I was playing Alpha Stirke at.

Changed tack and went with the Wight after I realized just how much more appropriate the legs were for a Rat and found a spare Centurion I gussied up with a Samurai-esque head from a resin pack, from the same store that worked just fine with the kitbash.  Tiny bits of styrene take the place of the blades as well as some uv resin parts to approximate Shredders Cape and outfit.
