Jill Valentine Project
« on: August 11, 2017, 03:20:32 PM »
Ok guys, I need a little help here.



Are any of those three heads viable (after a shave) to replicate this lady:


The blackdog 54mm sculpts provide enough parts for the torso, legs, and even arms (possibly hands), but not the head, or her Beretta 1911 pistol.
I need a solution, either using existing parts, or an alternative source in scale.

It's either this route, or I do a 3d print from the ripped gamecube files.

I'd say so too. I'm not sure you'd even need to shave the head, just sculpt a beret over the top and you're away! The rest will come out in the paint job, it's a bit tricky to get exact likenesses from unprimed resin.

And much like the franchise this idea comes from, this once more rises from the dead!
And with progress!



So that's a quick'n'dirty beret, plus the shoulder/back armour.
Arms are going to be my pain-in-the-bum very obviously looking at the parts I have available. Maybe also straps/pouches/etc.

I think the face likeness and hair is pretty good.

can i ask how big these blackdog minis are? do they look out of place next to other inq figures?

I haven't got any of the male minis from that manufacturer, so difficult to say, but the ladies - as you can see - tend be a bit slight and slim compared to most 54mm Inquisitor models, largely due to the heroic thickset scale of the GW offerings.
In this case, I think she's a wee bit shorter too, though not by a lot.
For my uses, that's fine, though, as people tend to vary in height anyway, and women seem (to me anyway) to have a tendency to be shorter on average.
