A tale of souls and swords, eternally retold (SC6 edition)

Now a gift for my long-time mate Le Bello, the thumbnail wizard :)
Here are my (imo) best SC6 thumbnails, all of them carefully creafted and with a message.

I propose a quiz because i like mystery thumbnails to surprise the kids and see their jaw drop sometimes.
So can you figure out which TN belongs to which CAS (requires to have a very good knowledge of my collection or to have watched all three of my compilation videos ?
Approx names for the CAS are ok, or you can just say : it's the cobra CAS etc.

If there is a winner who gets them all right (some of them obvious but also some mystery thumbnails might be harder to guess), he gets a bonus CAS from me on a theme/style of his choice, OC, RC, 2P you name it, i am in a generous mood today, idk why :)

Here we go (a couple missing) :












It's not that hard of a quizz, and of course, feel free to review them if you like...
It's only part of them, you see, so if you like it, i might do the others later (with another quiz/prize ?)

Oh beaucoup merci for zis rewarding suprise :D! Punk Amy looks even more better now, with the improved mohavk hair and earrings, which I belief are made using the demon horns ( don´t remember the exact name, verdamnt XD ). And yes, I did notice the different colour classes ;). Amie de la Révolution looks fabulous with such a stance :).

Ah, nothing better than croissants and flute at the morning XD. I travelled once to France as a part of an intrernational high school course where we get to visit Strasbourg and learn about the activities of the European Parliament at their Strasbourg main building. During our four days stay we lived in a local hotel where we got to eat croissants and flutes as our breakfast. Oh the feeling of getting to enjoy breakfast eating such plaisir when back home the usual breakfast food consists mostly of porridge XD.

Thanks for the feedback on Punk Amy, and the story of your visit to Strasbourg. This is the city where i studied and where i met my wife, so Strasbourg is a very special city for me, and one of the most beautiful in France.
I am glad you enjoyed french viennoiseries (funny because the word means : comes from Vienna :)

You are most welcome mon ami ;)! Altough I mostly visited the oldest part of the city due to our Limited free time for checking out the city, Strasbourg is indeed something that I will remember forever. I did forget to mention that my trip happened during the Christmas and Strasbourgs traditional christmas festivals and fairs. The chance to see the historical old city part with is narrow streets and all the christmas decorations and booths was just so mesmerizing. And after seeing Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg from both outside and inside, I simply can´t give any admiration to my own towns old wooden church anymore, for after seeing Notre-Dame, it looks like a pile of sticks to me XD.

Oh I most certainly did and me and my class also ate some sophisticated french food as well in an official restaurant in the old part of the city. I swear the french cook and set their food to the point of being more of pieces of artworks to look and admire at rather than eating them XD.

It's amy-racle, i managed to get ideas for this totally anticharismatic wafu of a character.

First off, another modern-era CAS :


















View attachment 60757

Then a very personal piece, l'AMIE, petite french brunette and one CAS i hold dear and who is still (sadly) very relevant even in 2019.

As you probably know, France is in a bit of a chaotic situation right now, which reminds me of the french revolution against nobility at the end of the 18th century.


I made sure all the french pointers are there, and a lot of different techniques are at play on this one.
I won't do any quiz, but if anyone reviews her/them, i'll sure be checking and rejoicing me if all the little details have been spotted XD

Some text is in french on purpose for added flair (and to teach you a couple of words / phrases).
I am in love with her, as HK would say...
amy right, is she amyrable ? :)

Voilà, j'ai tout donné à ce forum, je suis fatigué, alors je tire ma révérence (pour le moment :)...

Sure but if you are short of ideas i can come up with a surprise CAS or you could challenge me with a set of limitations, like using a race i haven't used in any of my CAS that one sure would motivate me, because after amie i am left a bit drained tbh :)

And though i'm not a fan of punk culture i must say Punk Amy rocks! i really like the design of the of the outfit and the overall details she has. Well, i think she's an adorable punk rockstar.

Forgot the quiz !

1/On the editor pictures above, you can see i tried to emulate thick goblin skin under the armor and give a rugged naked skin look, how did i achieve this ?
2/Likewise, how did i achieve the igneous rock look on the armor ?
Ok, that was easy, now onto the final question...
3/...and probably the most difficult one, how did i clip the earholes on each side of the hood ?......hearing is very important for a stealth assassin you see hear XD


.....jjk for the last one, late april's fool haha

I considered replacing voldo chin ExEq with less shiny parts (simple horns merged could be an option) but i am not sure it will look as goblinesque (and background story fitting) as those...why ?

because my idea behind the scar and ExEq was the aftermath of a fight with an ogre who ripped half of his face off (esp. the protruding nose and chin, which were then conveniently replaced by a metal prothesis of sorts sewn directly into his thick goblin hide...
It all provides a suitable explanation for when armor breaks and the ExEq vanishes, leaving only the scars underneath.
I left the torso unstickered because i think the bare skin with huge scars kinda complemented the #fight gone bad background story very well indeed...i might use remaining sticker slots to add some green blood smears / stains around the scars tho, in an updated version.

Overall, i wanted to keep the design simple and found a way to use for that bloody Sieg armor you can't combine with much but still opens a few interesting design paths.
