So I arrive back home from work in Uganda yesterday to find my new project waiting for me patiently. A Hierophant Bio Titan and what a lot of work it is going to require. So I figured I would ask for some advice.
First off, I'm curious about what size base I should use for it. I know the model does not require a base and will probally not use the base for gameplay, I want a base for modelling/display purposes though. I think anything this large deserves to be shown off in a nice scene (which I have planned out quite nicely). The second part of this would be where to find good bases for models.
I've read from various sources and have tested the flexibility of the Hierophants legs, particularly towards the thin blade like ends. While on the base I don't believe this will be a problem due to how it will be modelled. Anything this big and heavy will naturally sink into the ground quite some distance and it will be modelled appropriately for that. But when removed from the base for gameplay I don't want to have to worry about the legs breaking and do not wish to cut the legs off to make them stronger. Any tricks to help support something like this? Maybe a epoxy like glue that can be put on the legs to help strengthen/stiffen them up once it's dried? Obviously I don't want the legs to look like they are encased in ice or anything but is there a way to stiffen them without adding too much material to the legs themselves? I suppose the simplest solution for this may be to simply make individual bases for each leg that attach further up where it is stronger.
I believe that is all I have questions about for now.
