I passed on the Huntress because it was never one of my favorite Frazetta paintings and awkward size and price just made me pass on it. I also never liked what I call DD showing a little leg and I already had the 1/6 revised and later got the small 1/9 version but after seeing Shedman's 1/4 scale I liked that one too.

I definitely like the revised Death-dealer 3 painting more than the original, didn’t care for the funky helmet horns on the original and liked the chainmaille on the revised...I did take off the funky helmet horns from the statue and replaced it with horns more in line with the revised painting.

That sounds cool. Do you have any pics of that?

I took out and repainted the original horns and put magnets to make it interchangeable.



New horns I made to match the revised DD3 painting, I like these much more than the originals.

Made a fur saddle like padding for the helmet to rest on with something of a scabbard attached for the sword to rest in.

Did an alternate scimitar sword for the Deathdealer and made another sword based on Frazetta barbarian painting to pose wihen using Frazetta’s Conan’s head.

You are blowing my socks off with the exquisite work you’ve done on this piece, brother. What great swords! That blood work is masterful! I am truly impressed. Truly.

That looks amazing. How do you make those small swords? What do you use?

I have a ton of sword letter openers and knife blade blanks. Just looked for the closest one in scale for my project than did a little cutting and grinding and sanding, then made the hilt out of apoxie sculpt fixit.
