Another week and another video game homage, surprise surprise. This is a game I am soooo excited about I just cannot tell you, “BioShock Infinite”, the latest game in the brilliant “BioShock” series by Irrational and 2K. Anyway I wanted to do a Nerf Rayven in a different style and figured this was it. I am a HUGE fan of the BioShock series, I bought the games, most of the toys from the games and I’ve played them through a couple of times, the writing in these games is just.. well, wonderful. As well as the writing, the artistic design of the BioShock games is just beautiful. BioShock Infinite changes the style somewhat, given the setting differs from the city of Rapture seen in the previous titles, but it still looks astonishing. Anyway this is my little homage to the “BioShock Infinite” world, a Nerf Rayven with a twist…
The Nerfenbot 2000 is a silly fun Nerf mod I decided to do for a couple of reasons. One, I had a lot of scraps and wanted to use some and two, to try and get my creative juices flowing again (I’m a little stagnated at the moment and rather than churn out same old same old, went for a Nerf mod that is totally different). The result is the Nerfenbot 2000, what a fun little guy! He’s made entirely of Nerf pieces from my junk drawer (pretty much). He’s also got a red LED ‘terminator’ eye and is a homage to some of the great robots in pop culture I added the various quotes to his warning label, see how many you can get!
Just a quick one for today, This is my take on the Team Fortress secondary weapon, the humble pistol. It’s not exact, but then it’s not meant to be, this was just for funsies and I left the paint job sort of cartoony to match the idea it came out of a game. I also fully weighted it so it’s heavy to pick up. I might do a few more Team Fortress props as I’d like to try a really flat cartoon / cel-shaded style of painting. I guess we’ll see what the future holds, for now though I give you the Team Fortress pistol prop.
H.G. Wells Tesla pistol W13 - I’ve gone Tesla crazy since finally sourcing some vacuum tubes (thanks again Carole!). First there was Claudia’s mini Tesla pistol last week and now a H.G. Wells steampunk Tesla pistol this weekend! If you’re wondering why a H.G. Wells steampunk Tesla over the regular Tesla, it’s because H.G. is my favorite Warehouse 13 character and I’m still having trouble sourcing parts for the actual Warehouse 13 Tesla pistol prop. Anyway I figured it only right H.G. Wells get a Tesla all her own! I LOVE the detail in this blaster, it is beautiful, I only wish I could remember where I got it from as I want more! I fully weighted it, so it’s heavy to pick up and added the vacuum tube, after finding one that fit perfectly, after I had taken a saw to the gun itself.
