I watched a painting how-to where they left the lord and the mount separate so I figured I'd do that. Then when I tried to dry-fit the pieces and they didn't come together right. My solution to this is to give the lord some longer legs. His lower legs are sculpted on the mount. So, I glued some sprue pieces on the legs.
Then I put greenstuff around those and shaped them:
|Building, Sculpting, Fixing... not my strong suit.|
Now dry-fit round two.
|Pressed into GS to give me guidance for final assembly.|
I'm also going to model a shield onto the unit. I needed to flatten an area on his left arm. I won't mount the shield until the end.
|Lord Celestant on Stick, also his shield is in the background.|
Next step prime.
