My Dire Troll Blitzer now has green-stuff on him, patching the horrible hole I made in his back while installing the pipe-and-sleeve assembly.
If it’s not obvious from the photo, I’ve probably failed in my sculpting. Still, I’ll tell you what it’s supposed to be — it’s an additional loop of rope around a circular wooden platform.
And here it is with the turret assembly dropped into place.
There’s a little bit of a gap under the back of the turret, but it’s not visible from above, and the plank looks, to my eye anyway, more natural with a bit of a slope on it. Not that I plan to play this model much with the pyg removed, but on that one occasion when I do, the model will look right.
