I've been really working at converting a tau Crisis suit lately: intigrated weapons systems, reverse jointed legs, articulated jet pack. ^_^ I'm really proud of him so far. The pose I had in mind for this guy I failed to plan ahead for however. I want him to look like hes about to touch down after a near vertical jump.
My problem is I can't think of an elegant way to attach him to the base and give him a little stability without sticking a clear plastic rod through his crotch. I could pin his foot to the base but I really doubt it'll take more than a stiff breeze to knock him over.
Anyone have some suggestions, or examples of clever ways to make a model look airborne?
Don't have the stand face straight upwards. Angle it and it gives an illusion of movement. So, if he's landing, he's leaning back, so have the stand lean back with him, and attach it to the backpack.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
My brother had the same thought. Somehow tho he looks much more agressive when he's leaning forward and touching down, like he's carrying his momentum forward. My problem with the clear rod (besides looking weird) is when angled it comes way off the base.
Can I bend it somehow, maybe heat it with a lighter? I can cover it later with some foliage or something
Edit: ended up using the hairdryer method, worked the best.
