From the guy with the far out there ideas, comes...amazingly enough, another offbeat idea!

The basis of this idea comes from the song Master of Puppets, by Metallica, and the general feel of the song. Most of it is dark and definitivly metal, but the middle portion 3:35 to about 5 minutes, has a much lighter feel. I always have envisioned a battle between good and evil, light and dark. Basically, after seeing the knight Gyan that won a BAKUC, and thinking back about an evil mobile suit (I know Deathscythe isn't "evil", but the suit's design revolves around death and darkness, so it works ^^). I thought it may be a good idea to try out.

Basically, what I'm going to do, is I'm going to replicate the cover of the Master of puppets case.

without the Metallica at the top, as a diorama. It will not be to scale with the mobile suits normal sizes. The crosses will be either 3/4 as tall as the suits, or 1/4 as tall. I haven't quite decided yet. I'll be making it a display case, on top of which I'll screw in 10 rings, where the strings will all be bound. The deathscythe will also be tied, probably at the arms, head, and legs, because he is the "puppet". I plan to do some "evil" mods on the deathscythe, such as adding red LEDs for eyes, and using a Wing Zero frame for added poseability. I'm looking into the possibility of curving the white spike at the knee and the toe spikes, just to add to the whole darkness feel of him. If anyone else has any more ideas on how to make a deathscythe look darker, please tell me! I'll be using the standard color scheme, maybe changing the white pieces into black.

I have not bought my Gyan yet, but I will post ideas for him when I do. I have done some minor work on the Deathscythe so far, but really, not enough to warrant pictures. The main reason I created the thread was to ask for modification ideas on the deathscythe and get people's opinions on the idea as a whole. If people are dissastisfied, moderators, please feel free to lock the thread for the time being.

I know it's not my place to say but a picture-less WIP thread is pretty much useless and the link you posted is not working.

Looking forward to some real in-progress photos though, because it seems like a cool idea.

One of the rules Beunolas is to not link any images that are not hosted by yourself. This is why we are getting the "Stop Stealing My Bandwith" image when we click that link.

My apologies. I forgot. Anyway, I did a bit more work, snapping the D-Hell wings, got an LED and watch battery, and looking to find a way to put it in.

Ok, done some mod work on the wings. Yes, more crappy pics, I know. What I did was I took the forearm from my sandrock, and mounted it on the back of the D-Hell, and attached it to the wing. I did this to allow a further range of motion for the wing posing.

anyway, no other updates, besides snapping the kit in sections for painting, and primering. May begin painting today.

Have you tried turning on Macro on your camera settings? I think your pictures will turn out more focused.

I like your concept though  :)

Wings have been painted-FFAed-assembled. Now to start the main body work, using a Wing Ka as the frame.

Perhaps the good Gyan can have puppet strings up to the sky and the evil Deathscythe can have chains rooting it down to the ground (kinda Spawn-ish), thus we have God and the Devil as the puppet masters... :evil:
