Finally, a jezzail model that makes use of the classic figures. I had to bend the arm on the loader (called the jezzail rest in the classic figure line) and cut off the sword to allow him to hold the shields. I sculpted a handle over what was left of the sword in his hand. I also had to shave off the Brettonian arms on the backs of the shields. Well, I didn't have to, but I did anyway. I really like the older massive jezzails, and this conversion is one of my favorites. I added the extra barrel (or sight, whatever), and then drilled holes all the way through the barrel to run the guitar wire in loops which turned out great. I also added a few plastic rings on the wire which look like weird electrical insulators.
