Toy-a-day contest.

Toy-A-Day had a contest where people were making their own models. I decided to make a Marylin Monroe one; not bad I ended up at 5th place without much fanfare.

I don't know if Joe's gonna post the models on his website, but here's mine anyway.

How to build the Paladin, or any character models, even Mootkin.

Here's some helping tips:

Create each parts separately before glueing them together. By that I mean;
Make the hands, then bracers and then arms.
Make the legs, cuffs and feet. Glue the sole at last.
Make the body.
Make the head.
Make the skirt (don't close it completly)

When you've built every parts, start putting them together.
Glue the arms to the body.
Glue the head to the body.
Glue the legs to the body.
Glue the skirt around the body.
you can also glue the legs inside the skirt and glue the skirt to the body.

If there's a cape, glue it to the back of the body or leave an opening in the back and glue the cape directly in the body instead of the back parts.
It's a pretty useful trick that you can also use for moonkin's fur.

For the shoulders (the equipment piece, not the body part), you don't see inside them so you dont have to make them perfect.
So don't worry about leaving an opening, you're gonna glue that part to the arms anyway. It's easier to close the shoulder from the inside if you leave it open.

Judgement Pally update. (yes, my webcam sucks)

Hi all...
sorry about it, but i'm building the pally right now and I just saw that i didn't include a proper leg pattern in case you want to make the "skirt" on top of them.

In other words, the legs in the pally model are too big (because of the shoes) so the skirt can't be put around them. If you want to make it to show the pants and shoes, go ahead and don't mind this. On the other hand, if you want to make the skirt, I suggest you download this file here.

the complete pally set.

the "complete set" has both legs pattern, just like the model link below.
sorry again about that, mostly to the 257 who downloaded the previous one.

Human Paladin with Judgement Set.

Some days ago, somebody requested a human pally on the little "shoutlog" in the sidebar to your right. I thought it was a good idea since there's not much human models on this page. So here's a human pally with the Judgement set. It won't be easy to build but i'm sure he'll look great in the end. Use pepakura as always!

Download here. (see update above for info about legs!)

BTW, the french version of the site is starting to take shape. It should be up to date by tomorrow. I put a list of every models with pictures on the page too. Might be worth checking out.
