This one is the most ambitious project yet and by far the most involved.
Lets take a look at the process of creating 150 purity seals for this years tournament.
(Duke here) Im going to jump in and tell everyone what these purity seals are actually for. At Feast of Blades we like giving stuff away to lots and lots of people. This year we have initiated a program called "Feats of strength," we modeled it based off the achievements systems used on XboX, here is the run down:
Lets say you are a few bad losses in and you know there is no way you can win best overall, well if you pay attention during your games you could still leave with a handful of these to put all over your bag. Here is a few examples: (May be open to change)
1. Red ring of death: Kill 10 models with a single unit in one shooting phase or assault phase.
2. Invulnerable: Any unit or model makes 10 consecutive saving throws
3. Untouchable: Finish a game above 75% strength (determined by Kill Points)
4. Divided attention: Score all bonus battle points in an event.
5. Tactical acumen: Win three consecutive games in any event in one day.
6. Do something that makes the Judges or the TO say "wow," i.e. Guardsman betting Mephiston in combat and running him down.
Ok, now that you understand the system, lets get back to swags and his beautiful work *Cracks whip*
First thing to do is find some suitable icons for theses guys and mount them on 40mm bases.
Then its on to some green stuff to make the raised wax ring around the outside.
When that's set up, its off to the mold. Tick tock, tick tock...and 6 hours later.
Now the fun is about to start, I make the first set. Then a second set of three.
And its working.
Remember were doing 150 of these right!
And its working.
Me: Sounds easy.
Three hours later...
You wanted them in red right? Please tell me you wanted red.
Me: Sure no problem. (Inside, Yea no problem for you, who does this guy think he is?)
Ok 300 tails! All I had to do was create the art, apply the logo, get 25 sheets of transfer paper, print it, iron it to the material, hang them all and coat in glue mix.
(Inside: I'm starting to dislike your fancy ideas Duke.)
It looks small in the pic but go get a gallon bag and fill it to the top, its not.
(Inside: Yea NO PROBLEM! Sure lets do 300 freaking tails, that wont kill me...Grumble, grumble...My finger hurt...Like Duke less and less now...)
