    How to model a halo? (Not an Iron one)

    Hey all, I'm planning on making a 'Daemon Prince,' but in fitting with my fluff he's more of what you might call an angelic presence. I came up with an idea to make him fit this more by giving him a halo- not those metal spiky things on a backpack but an aura of light surrounding his head. This sounds tough to do to me, but I'm willing. I'm just curious if you think it could be done, either by painting or modelling? Fluff in the link in my sig if you're confused.

    Thanks!

    You could always just use wire and then cover it in pink fluffy bits to give him that angelic presence!

    In general you could actually use wire to make the halo and then use green stuff or whatever else you like to add details and so forth. I'm sure copper or brass wire is nice and bendy enough to do the job.

    hmm. This does sound chalenging but I believe I have a way that would help you solve this. Try to get ahold of some copper wire the thin stuff. Then put your green stuff around it. And to glue it onto the model use some super and plastic glue even mix hold down the green stuff well. Now by this I can see it holding or another way would to be getting a pop cap and putting a little green stuff around the edge on the top. Not the whole cap just like half a centimeter. Then when the green stuff has got it's shape pull it off the cap. That get's you the actual halo. But for the pole. Try using an ink holder. The thing in inside a pen that holds the ink is what I am talking about. Then green stuff around it then glue it to the halo. After that drys glue it to the model.

    Hope this helps.

    Sort of like model fire, you think? BTW he's also going to have that for Daemonic Speed, fire trails being left as he sprints across a 25mmx80mm base...

    And he'll have Lightning Claws! :yes:

    And Spiky Bits! :w00t: Not sure how to model these to fit the theme, though.

    or take a piece of the plastic frame and warm it up so it becomes meeable (sp?) and roll it into a snake and then get it into a circle
    then use a thin wire to pin it onto the model, then paint it gold or yellow, or whatever color you want

    but be sure to keep the plastic warm and melted when you work with it, and file or cut off all finger prints when your done with the halo

    For the fire just make the trails of his foot prints look like the ground has been burnt. Colors needed for this are blazing orange, blood red, chaos black, burbonic brown, and sunburst yellow. You will have to try to blend these.
    Hope it helps
