|The Gwyddis, Dwarf Valkyrie figure next to the tomb cover.|
While I was working on the tomb cover, I also drilled through it and the tomb base to insert a couple rare earth magnets, to keep the lid in place when the tomb was being stored or transported. I then superglued the magnets in place.
My next step was to superglue Gwyddis in place on the tomb cover. Once the glue was set, I worked on trimming and arranging her arms, and when I was satisfied, I glued them in place as well.
Once the glue was set, I used 2-part epoxy (greenstuff) to fill in the gaps in the tomb, as well as the gaps between her repositioned arms and her shoulders, and some of the gaps between her arms and her body to help it look more like a solid carving. I also used the greenstuff to level off the hole where I glued the magnet n the lid.
And here’s the finished result, with the King and Queen side-by-side. I’m really pleased with how this turned out. It’s not perfect, but when all painted up as weathered stone it should look just fine.
Hopefully next week we will be back to normal and I can complete the last two Dwarf Zombies from this set. See you all then.
