Count Neri of Oditerra
In the summer of 2020, Boss Fight Studio announced they would be holding a second special limited "Online Custom Class" using Zoom, with sessions occurring every Tuesday for four weeks. Each participant received a series of parts to be used for the custom. Unlike with the first custom class featuring Kaala-Mok these parts were not blind bagged and everyone received the same exact pieces.
Hosted mainly by Erich Ridlon and Erik Arana from Boss Fight Studio (with invaluable support by Meredith), the Zoom class walked the customizer through different painting techniques and color applications, eventually completing with a final product.
The end result was Count Neri, an established character in the Vitruvian HACKS mythology, however the customizer was free to tweak the design as much or as little as they wanted along the way.
Biography & Mock Up Artwork
Note: Unlike with the first custom class featuring Kaala-Mok these shipments were not blind-bagged and each customer received the same parts.
Count Neri's build was made up parts from the following:
- Blank - Elf Male Forest Tan
- Blank - Monster Male Reptile Green
- Mighty Steeds - Knight of Accord Mini Gear Kit
- Character Creator Kit - Knights (Royal Ruby Red)
- Character Creator Kit - Orc/Barbarian (Wolf Grey)
Again, unlike the first custom class featuring Kaala-Mok the second class included the same parts for everyone, though the customizers were encouraged to add their own flare, especially when it came to the pattern on the shield or the trim on the metallic parts. Creativity and uniqueness were strongly supported.
Below is my own personal finished product, though others certainly did it far better and different. Many of them can be viewed at the Facebook post linked below.
A full thread in the Boss Fighters Facebook Group contains a whole series of results from the customizers who all did some fantastic work.
Response to the customizing class was overwhelmingly positive with nearly 50 attendees with every class, and at this point Boss Fight Studio has announced a third class to occurr in October, 2020.
