  1. 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.

    in between the woodwork i also started cutting the lion head i had molded previously to see what that comes out like.

    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.

    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.


  3. 5a26b1ab2e706_sponsorswatermark.thumb.png.1f10fc86c12337130bcf93e8a1b75d8c.pngand here are the rest of the progressional pics of today.

    i made the base and a led holding turret upon which the main piller stands.

    i also started the armor plates with the spartacus armor snakes, the main snake form is done, must be formed to be more detailed of course.

    more to come

    here you can see the cobras then the main frame sof them i made, of course adapted to the bottom corners of the glass windows

  4. 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. :-)

  5. 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..

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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

    THE_SPARTACUS_MOD.thumb.jpg.d421eec264f50fa9d12549dfd4d0b78a.jpg

     


  9. wow, i just went through asll the builds and am amazed. the bar has been set very high this year again. i wish all the best to everyone. may the best mod win.

    i have cast my vote, which was very hard seeing as the quality level and amount of work as well as the creativity level has really been pushed up high this time.

    the public vote ios nice to have but does not really always do justice seeing as everyone more or less votes for theri friemd or country.

    so once again i am curious who makes the top 3 by jury votes and the other votes at the end.

    good luck to all and thanks for entertaining us.

  10. I have watched your build from the start to finish and my mind is blown out of my skull when you posted the finished project. The craftsmanship is superb and the result was amazing. As I have said before it's not just a mod it's an art work.

    thanls barakyo029, its nice to see that you appreciate my work. yes i also see the way i mod as art. 

    i love building themes to the extreme, delving into topics and living the idea. thanks for your nice remarks.
