Hi, first time poster here. I’d like to share with you my entry for the Helryx contest.
I first built Helryx two years ago. My idea was to represent her frail appearance in a different way. Rather than making her literally thin, I made her largely silver, as if whatever blue paint she had had worn away over 100,000 years.
For her mace and shield I wanted to go simple. She’s the first Toa to ever exist, and her equipment would be practical and well-worn. Her armour needed to be something Takanuva would find strange, so I chose CCBS plates combined with Knight’s Kingdom armour. I had to use a Hero Factory head for the mask, but for more versatility I’ve added an alternate Metru head in the studio file.
Her torso is too complex to break apart in a photo, but I’ve also recreated it in the studio file. In it I have used Gavla’s Mask of Psychometry, as well as the Inika shoulder armour and Metru head from this stud.io parts pack, which I am very grateful for. It’s a shame I couldn’t get the Knight’s Kingdom armour though.
I hope you like my Helryx!
