Welcome to Librarium Online!
So like many of you I only bought one box of sphinx. I modeled up the Necrosphinx cuz he is awesomesauce, but that left me with an ENTIRE sprue just sitting there. So i decided to see what I could find to make the Warsphinx without having to buy a whole other box. I found a tiger toy figure at the local Meijer, made by a company named Schleich. I decapitated the tiger and used a little greenstuff and trimmed some of the howdah and ended up with the attached pictures.
I still need to add some more greenstuff armor to his legs and thought about sticking some skeleton shields on his shoulders and thighs. I also bought a Sphinx tail on ebay that I will greenstuff on once it arrives, then Ill spray paint him with black primer to see how he comes out. Whatcha think!?
You're clearly insane.
(But in a good way...!)
I'm interested in seeing how this turns out - but I think you need to do some major work on bulking that tiger body up a bit! LOL. (The danger is it's going to look like exactly what it is. But good luck.
(Why not just buy a sphinx body online?)
Before i read what you wrote i thought you'd selotaped the howdah onto your pet cat or something.
SphinxyCat, Sphinxy Cat, does whatever a Sphinxy Cat does!
I tried to get the sphinx body a couple times on ebay but it went for over $20 before shipping prices. My goal is to convert a Warsphinx for as cheap as possible.
Yeah, I do see what you mean about the body being a little small in the shoulders. I might greenstuff him some muscles at some point Probably once I start in on his armor. When I have updated pics Ill post them. Probably wont be until next week/weekend though.
I am going to use the howdah to make a custom chariot for a king or prince. What to do with the head? no idea!
I got my tail in the mail and did a little more modeling today. I clipped the tail off the current body and trimmed the sphinx scorpion tail down and attached. Put on some greenstuff around the shoulders and chest and added shields for decor.
Congratz its looking good, keep posting.
(I dont find any bitz from eBay)
