1/6 Scale Horse custom for Skull Knight (Threezero) - WIP
« on: July 18, 2018, 03:08:27 AM »
Hello Berserker friends!
I'm starting a new custom build for Skull knight

Previously, I tested him on my old Steed (borrowed from Nazgul from LOTR)


Skull Knight is too big and the horse has short neck/Legs than it should.
It won't look right - proportion-wise, but I want to try anyways.

So I've started building the armor parts in 3D


Still WIP, and I'm running 2 projects at the same time.. Will try to update every weekend -ish.

Still more parts to print (and reprint), and checking the scale and fitting..etc.

Skipped a week due to work crunch.
Printed out most of the parts now - including new head part to go with head armor.


Looks like I need to figure out how to connect these parts. Probably leather and chain..etc


I wonder how the Skull knight sits on those spikes :D


Had to extend out the neck a little bit. It will be covered with black cloth material.


Overall shapes and parts. I will work on the cloth material and parts connection next.

That looks like a ridiculous amount of work. Looking forward to seeing it all done.

*1 more primer - sanding pass
*Head modification for LED + battery box + Switch
*Black paint layer + Silver paint +Top coat
*Leather straps connecting pieces
*New Cloth draping and weathering pass
Done over 2 weekends and now it's complete :D
*Sorry for quick masking on sides of images. The 1/6 horse and Knight is too big for my photobox. I had to trim out the sides a bit..
The horse in the graphic novel is larger, skinnier... but I had to draw line somewhere to do this.

Looks GREAT man! Were you tempted to give a different color-tone for Skullknight (like bone or a more weathered look)?

Also, I love your Macross work.
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

Thanks for feedback!
Originally when I first saw the guy in Manga way back in 1995, I imagined him being a natural bone color. I guess l got brainwashed with later Anime version colors and some illustrations.
Once you're brainwashed, it's hard to go back.  :SK: :SK:

Also the Threezero skull knight already came in metallic silver, so it was easier to match it.

This is SO awesome. I wish they sold a separate horse to go with the Skull Knight. You did a brilliant job! :iva:
