The Nyckelharpa is a lovely, strange beast!

I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time. Recently had the opportunity to Smiley

Each finger can be individually controlled. I don't have much in the way of photos yet, but here's a video of it in action:

The hand is made from an aluminum frame to form the "skeleton" and EVA foam to create the armored exterior. Color was done with spraypaint. At each joint springs are used to return the fingers to a neutral position. Motion of the fingers is achieved via loops worn on the wearer's (or "puppeteer's" if you like) fingers. The skulls are fabricated from white plastic and the domes over the red LED lights are made from a semi-translucent plastic.

Strangest thing is... I've never actually played Warhammer. I've just always loved the artwork and armor from the game Smiley
