Hey Jos, good to see you here again.

So guys, the time has come to start posting something while waiting for the modding goods.

I love the wild style of organic modding and wild this will be. here is a little teaser.

And be warned, this is gonna be casemod rock n roll all the way.

And also a tribute to Andy Whitfield, RIP ANDY

 

 

SPARTACUS

MOD OF THE ARENA

Hi guys, here is my first update.

I have recieved and unpacked the case. I have also stuck on a few of its parts like the glass windows to get an idea of size.

They will however come off while I am building.

The NZXT sword ornament was a gift barered against a few packets of coffee. I am only really interested in the bottom blade part. I want to make SPARTACUS`s Gladius

or sword out of it with a real blad and that will make in possible after cutting it up. Fortunately its just an ornament and not folded tempered damast steel so that will work.

more to come and I hope to see something from the other too soon.

have cut of the grip and will now make the guard and grip in my style required.

gladiatirs didnt usually have the best armor unless they were in a big arena, they usually trained and practiced with wooden swords called a rudis

if a gladiator was granted his freedom through success, then he would have been awarded something like this.

Rudis-3.jpg.b27642ea7048088e138f40cadaa5474a.jpg

i am making my gladius a mix of both designs

hi guys,

here are the results of todays modding. the basic gladius in now in form.

just need painting and decorating.

first of all here you can see the original blade, then the second video shows the gladius, not yet exactly finished but getting there.

and now the gladius itself, at least more or less in form.

i still need to deco the grip a bit..

hi guys.

i saw the lion heads on spratcus`s gladiator armor and decided to integrate them too. i litterally wnet roung looking at door knobs and knockers and found this one. i am using it as a negative for making these sub negatives. sub neg, because i will be vacuuming acrlic plates ontp them, when they are dry.

these are basically made by covering the head, waiting till its dry and using the mold as another mold for furth molding twice. sperated with alayer of silicon spray.

they will look great when finished. wait n see. :-)

Hi guys. here is a little update again.

i am using sawed in half ans sanded lemello wedges to make some of the armor scales.

when set in scene, sanded off and with the paintjob they will look great later. they will still have some studs and other elements too of course

Holy!!! This is insane! It's looking awesome already! :D

thanks mate, I am sure it will get really interseting soon. its still pretty basic stuff, making the basic form to accomodate the funktions, hardware and all the proper deco and elements of this very extreme theme agin.

so, i finished the scalle sticking and sanded it off a wee bit. must still be further carried on. but i started working on the top segmented arena.

as i already mentioned, this mod is all about the whole spartacus era, the world he was dooemd to live in, what happened to him, who made it happen etc..

so we need a lot of roman elements too, als some greek because SPARTACUS was  THRACIAN, which was a greek province as the legend goes.

anway, i am now making an arena and many other elements which will be all these cultural styles mixed together. but all from that epoche and era.

we bear in mind, this is prechristianity, so no crosses or such elements in the armor, its all about jupiter, pluto and other mythical gods.

DSCN0013.thumb.JPG.43f8b2c40c8dbbf8c034828851393f08.JPGDSCN0014.thumb.JPG.937d2637737f71516ccfd219e4242818.JPGDSCN0012.thumb.JPG.465c34da143a0a4793327dc74d635ac0.JPGDSCN0011.thumb.JPG.d461c40ab9bc331a17a02286192a5bfe.JPGDSCN0017.thumb.JPG.19be88be7bdd057fadce6ce18c865d6f.JPG

 

so while they are dry hardening i carried onm to make the top arena segment base.

the arena floors looked like dirt but were actually sand on wooden platforms. because the romans had a complex corridor, tunnel and lift system underneath.

once again u must stress the fact that i am only using hand guided machines and no automation. this is all handmade handcrafted stuff you are spectating.

each and every little groove making it a planking look is as uneven as the romans would have made it without modern tools, but as accurate as those fine engineers could muster.

hi guys. here is my last update befpre xmas. i am actually moving into anew flat now so it will be a week i guess before i can post again.

i wish you all a very merry christmas.

anyway, today i dremeled in the stone n brick look and started making the shade holders.

i ran into the same problem that the romans probably did because of  the abgle towards the front, but forund a way to measure each one seperately.

here are the pics of todays modding.
