Iron Kingdoms Cosplay Part 3: Gun Mage & Mechanik

I debuted the Gun Mage costume a month ago at the first Saturday night D&D session at the fantastic Nerdy Coffee Co. but it has taken me this long to sit down and write it all up. The team at Darkblade LARP did a fantastic job on the leatherwork and after some back and forth the parts all fit perfectly.

First up we have the Gun Mage costume:

And then the full Mechanik costume:

And just because 2 costumes wasn’t enough variety I’ve started working on some more parts. I’m currently playing a Rhulic Dwarf Mechanik with a Repeating Pistol and a Mechanikal Arm in a campaign so I figured I’d start there. Whilst looking around for Mechanikal Arm inspiration I found the picture of the Khador Mechaniks Chief from the Warmachine game and noticed the head on his ‘Jack Wrench looks like a ratcheting socket set, so I started to build a new head for my wrench too. The socket heads are going to be magnetized so they will be interchangeable and they will also fit into the Slug ammo loops for ease of carrying.

Next up was the repeating pistol and for that I went to thingiverse to try and find a revolver to suit. I ended up with a Destiny gun that kinda looked the part but didn’t have a functional interior, so I downloaded the files and got to work of making it all work. The first prototype is done and the hammer and trigger mechanism works, I just need to get a few more parts printed to test the cylinder advancement system. I’m also working on adding runes instead of the detailing on the original files. It’s also scaled to fit in the Magelock holster and to use the same bullets for maximum cross purpose.

Now to look into working on the Mechanikal Prosthetic Arm, that’s gonna be a fun one.

Very little is known about the legendary Thieves’ Guild in Rotvar an ancient and dark organization. Born in the shadows of ancient eras, it is only known that it is led by a group called the Hand of Shadow. You cannot enter the Thieves ‘Guild, it is the Thieves’ Guild who chooses its members among the most talented thieves. In a world riddled by monsters and demons, the Adept Thieves of the guild are not only trained to be invisible shadows, but also skilled fighters with swords, daggers, bows and crossbows. There is no treasure or relic that the Guild cannot steal out of greed or a wealthy patron.

New Year – New Prices

When the Elegoo Saturn arrived last year it massively changed my production capabilities and has allowed me to reduce my prices. In some cases by a significant amount – over 50% cheaper in some cases.

With the new year upon us I decided there was no better time to go through the catalogue and reprice everything using the new systems. Today I started thew mammoth job with the first 3 Artisan Guild categories. Abyss Daemons, Amazons and Ashen Alfar. I will be working my way through the rest as fast as possible and for now the 20% off offer that ran when the Saturn originally arrived will remain active for those listing that have not been repriced.

Mech Movement Accessories

Whilst attempting to teach a friend how to play Battletech we figure that the little movement modifier dice we’ve seen about the internet would be very helpful, so we set about making our own.

Tom did a very good job on the design once I gave him the contraints of the printer and the result is a very clean and readable design at only 18mm across.

The Dragon Guard

The noble Dragonguard is an ancient order of Dragonblood knights who swore allegiance to Ghaomir, the ancient and supreme Dragon-God.
Once human, the spirits of the most valiant ancestors among the order had been infused with the sacred dragon’s blood, turning them into immortal creatures of great might and wisdom.
Among the most acclaimed heroes of this order of knights, the skalds still sings about the wise leader Scramax the Battlemage; and the brutal “one man army” Nasmaraax the Destroyer, killer of wyverns, a mighty barbarian of disproportionate dimensions feral as a raging Dragon. Hundreds of years ago, during the epic battle for the city of Torm, the Dragonguard and the Fighter’s Guild fought valiantly against the forces of Tialevor and his army of Soulless and Ashen Alfar.
Even the legendary Dragon Ornithaax, son of the Dragon-God Ghaomir, took part in the battle, decimating the ranks of the current Tyrant-God.
In the age of ashes, the Dragonguard order lives in total seclusion, awaiting the resurrection of the revered Ghaomir to oust the God-Tyrant from his throne.
