October 2015 Craft War – The Competition!

This comes courtesy of Curufin on the DM’s craft forums. This is the only other entry in the Miniatures contest at this time. I’m not sure if I am going to win this month’s challenge. So wish me luck!

The Waterman by Curufin

He was once a mortal man stranded at sea who pleaded to Procan, god of the sea. Procan heard the cries of the young man and bestowed the power of the Golden Conch of Water Control. The young man became the Waterman, Herald of Procan. He used the Golden Conch of Water Control to create his Water Wagon which is pulled by four water elementals. For a time, he was looked on as a good omen by sailors and fisherman. But as the sea goddesses, Geshtai and Osprem, became more popular among the sea ports and wharf towns, the faith changed from Procan to these more forgiving goddesses. Procan’s mood changed to wrathful, and so to did the Waterman. He is now more of a harbinger than a herald. He precedes great storms at seas, and any siting of him scares ship captains and fisherman alike to keep their boats close to shore. He is an ill omen and stories say he is either an undead or some demon or something far more sinister. Any survivors the Waterman comes upon on at sea, he captures in his Water Wagon….what happens to those poor souls no one knows…

I started making the water elementals. The first one (on the right) was made from card stock, but I quickly scrapped that idea for something far better. Crumpled up aluminum foil (left) with a coat of hot glue was the way to go.

The wagon is mainly card stock with some pieces of wood. I used some string for the bars on the windows.

Hot glued together and then coated in hot glue.

The Waterman was a Hobgoblin HeroClix that I trimmed up and added a piece of string for the water whip.

Painted up.
