Misaki & The House of the Flying Thunders

Recommended Posts

On the way to (or from - can't remember which), @OldManMyke and I had a discussion about some ideas we had for basing Misaki. He had a great idea about having her perched on some bamboo. Bloody good idea, I thought and promptly stole it.

Ordered some railway scenery type bamboo from China and went to work.....

Hoping to be able to maintain the theme through the crew

ok i love this. instantly i see the scene from crouching tiger hidden dragon where they are running through the bamboo forest up in the bamboo.

ive seen the little white flowers on the base before, but forget who makes them or where to buy them. do you remember either of those?

Okay, even my wife, who looks at my own guys and gives me the standard 'That's nice, dear', just saw this and said 'Wooooow. Now _that's_ nice!"

Really, very nice work. Well done!

I really like this idea, and the modelling material you used looks excellent. Misaki just ruins it for me. She looks silly as it is in her regular pose, and turning the model a bit so she is between two bamboo stalks still makes her look a bit....off. But don't let that dissuade you, you are onto something cool here and I am looking forwards to seeing some more!

Have also decided to make a display tray for use at tourneys too. Hoping to be able to continue the theme from the basing with some scenic elements of 30 & 40 mm bases to fill holes where there are no models dependent on crew selection.

Looks awesome! I checked your blog for the full pictures as well.

Where did you order the bamboo from?

Been trying to find a place to buy bamboo in the right size, but I just can't find any.

The full crew has been painted. I found the link to his blog while stalking him for inspiration. http://doublenegativeflip.blogspot.co.uk and the post is from this spring, I think around January. It's awesome!

I also found an answer to my own question, this looks like the bamboo he used: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Approx-100Pcs-Plastic-Model-Bamboo/dp/B00IR38ZIG. Got a tip on Facebook.

Cheap and huge amounts!
