Sculpt work by Cam!

Post by: Camkierhi


Well season greetings to anyone I missed, nearly over now, such an interuption. Should get back to it soon.

@ Theo Indeed, thinking chains and bodies being dragged behind, not sure yet. My boy wants it to be purple, so got to draw heavily from Nerdfests amazing works and see if I can get purple skin looking good.

@ Shas Oh yeah, trying this sculpting mallarky. Not very good yet but getting there. "Skirt" was the most difficult.Just impossible to get it to hold the shape I wanted. Should have made a former I guess, might have stood a chance.

Will try and get some pics up tomorrow of progress for now here's what I got for Christmas.



So I have had to reorganize my paints.....(not all just the onesI use most.)



Oh and THIS IS SO COOOOOOOOL........my prize arrived just before Christmas.



It is brilliantly made and so gorgeous. It does give me a real big problem now though. What do I do with it? To do it justice I have to complete the titan, and take my time doing it too. But my mad orky mek want soooooo desperately to use it for an Orky looted superheavy silly tanky thing, but that feels really bad, The work that has been put in to this it would be criminal to do that.

Thank you sooo much hk1x1 it is beautiful. I can't believe you have given this away.

I will be starting up the next League Terrain Competition soon, I have some idea's and I want to bounce them around a bit first, but it will be up for the new year.

Thanks for looking, and please feel free to leave c&c.

Catching up on my Sub'd list.
Nice haul of new shinies.

Good work on the daemon prince(ss ).
The back and the muscles are nicely done and look part of the model now it's the same colour.

The skirt could have been smoother in places (I can see tool marks when I'm zoomed in) and this will really show up when you paint it.
but it is a really good effort, cloth is surprisingly difficult to sculpt (I know, you saw how much I moaned when I was doing the sniper's cloak).

You can add creases and folds after the putty is dry by adding a sausage of putty and smoothing the edges onto the surface.

also, look for images of real cloaks/skirts that are in a similar pose to your model and study where the folds are and then replicate that with a little exaggeration. Also finding pictures of models with similar cloth/pose are good to see how much exaggeration to do and where to do it.

Keep at it (I'm not in any hurry to sculpt cloth again so I respect your efforts).

Not to keep picking faults (but you did ask ), but the tail is a bit too uniform in thickness along it's length and the tip isn't as pointy as I'd have liked (but that's up to you). Also the crease could do with being smoothed.

Good work though.

More pics.

@ DrH Thank you. Pulled the tail off and working on another as we speak.

@ Dave Yes they are a sweet haul of lovely paints, couple of doubles, but they are popular paints for me anyway. These are very good paints.

Ok bit more done here.

Firstly my entry for Bebops comp, Just about the final shots I think, but please cross your beady eyes across them and see if I missed anything.







and next up is the base for the cross dressing daemon.



Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I love how you used that zinge sprue part for your junk pile...!

the guardsman looks very good, love those shoulderpads, but I think the green trimmings on the coat is a bit too strong in hue?

as for the demon... looking forward to the painted model...the base is awesome as hell...

and then...that prize... totally earned...but I would suggest you really go the extra mile and make yourself your own , very own titan... you really know you want to... no messing with looting and kitbashing here...pretty please^^...or to put it in another way...congratz mate...a very well deserved win mister!

hey bud! Congrats on the win!

Got to admit i agree with Viktor von Domm build your own Titan!! the Warhound is a great looking machine.. and you have an epic starting block!!

it would take me about a year to even make a start on it... but i have faith in you! hehe!

I'm pleased to see the Titan arrived in one piece, and If you do decide to build the rest of it, let me know,
as I still have all the template's, including ones for the legs and weapons.

Although It would be interesting to see what an Ork Mek might do, if he ever got hold of one .

whatever you choose to do with it, I'm sure it will look great either way.

@Dave It is a great model, I am no officionado on these things but it is an older model I gather they have changed some what.

@Gitsplitta No I am afraid not, I got them from this guy, check out his blog, you will love it. I bought the T's and won the tank in a raffle. URL below.

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/537679.page

And so here is my entry, wish I could do better, but will see if I have time for a second entry.






Good luck everyone, the entries I have seen so far are outstanding, so this looks like being a brilliant competition. (I do not include mine in this.)

Would love to have your thoughts guys and dolls.

"Tumble weed skips by!"

So please could I have your thoughts on this fellow.




Question: what colour "skirt" should he have. It was going to originally be made from human "skin". But if I start that it clashes terribly with the purple. Just don't know.

Also, long way from finished andis very messy at the moment, but what do we think of the skin tone at present?

Guardsman s looking awesome!
Skirt for the Daemon, normally they do wear black with gaudy runes, but if going for Slaanesh, the more loudly and insanely gaudy and bright, the better!

as for the demon prince... due to the purple I feel a strong World of warcraft vibe... I think something for the skirt like green and gold would be nice... maybe you could be really bold and try to do some tartan?

Happy New Year Cam.

The Guardsman looks great and should do well in the competition.

As for His-Purple-i-ness... Good job on the new tail.

As the purple is quite bright, the skirt should probably be a dark colour so that he doesn't end up too cartoony. Unless he is meant to be Slaanesh, in which case bright is the way to go traditionally (as far as I know, not that up on the actual chaos side of 40k).

You've got yellow on the rest of him (yellow and purple being good friends), so you can't use that on the skirt.

Green would work if it was going to be bright. A dark green wouldn't really fit the model as it's a bit too camo'-like and that's not a Daemon thing.
Bright green and purple is also the colours of probably the most evil character ever:
Spoiler:



Blue can work well with purple, but does bring out the blueness in the purple.
Red does the opposite and makes purple look redder.
As the purple you have there seems quite "red" then you probably don't want any more red and I would go with a deep, rich blue.

Try out a few colours/shades next to your purple and see what fits best before you paint.

Hi Guys, thank you for the comments, been very busy IRL, sudden change of jobs, Christmas, New Year, helping a friend with their year end accounts for last 2 years, fixing another friends broken floor, about to do a full shop fit on another friends place, and just to top it off found damp in the boys bedroom so major fix it and move around in there. I am trying to get a little time on my models and vaguely keeping up with your excellent works on your blogs.

So what little time I have got modelling I got the bug for a bit of orky action so over on my orkishness blog I created this so far.

Job wise, too sordid an affair to be able to speak freely. (Not really that big a deal, honest.)

And the tracks have to be wide because of the height of the thing. (it's a Camkierhi take on the old Scorcher.)

Hmmm...what an interesting scheme...very flashy...the face looks very good to me, where I have my difficulties with is the color of the cloth...it is in hue rather close to the color of the carpace...that makes it a bit complicated...I like the hazard strips on the helmet...I wonder if more stripes to the cloth would look good...just a suggestion...

@Velour_Fog Welcome to the mad house. I think you would be right in the normal run of things, but in these particular circumstance I am after shock and awe, more than actual realism.

On that point, should I camo him with purple dots? Just kidding. Just trying to think of a base, maybe urban!

Governor's personal guard?


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/01/18 22:11:31


Post by: Dr H


First off, good effort on the killer whale.

There's something about the colour scheme though, that feels a little off to me. But I can't put my finger on what it is...

It does give the impression of a personal guard to someone that has lots of money and likes to show others that he/she has lots of money.

I think it may be that there are too many colours going on. There's orange and blue (which work well together), and white (this gives them the upper class look), and then there's red (which goes with the white trousers) and green (which makes sense for a wreath) and they're all vying for attention. So, I can see why the colours were used... I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, maybe it's something else...

But beyond that I can't really help, sorry.

Heya mate..... Really like that last guards man... and i agree.. i think it looks like the personal defence force of some real rich trader or planatery gov.

I think the thing for me is the rifle...... the white just looks a little off to me... i know its potentially for a wealthy govoner or something... but even a dark copper or a silver or something...... just my 2 bobs worth!

Looks great though... and those free hand sholder pads.....

Thank you.

Just to clarify, yes it's a bit of an odd colour scheme. I don't know what I was trying for. Just kinda popped out. Oh and it's actually gold on the plating. Sorry my picture is a bit crap, not really picked up the metallic. That actually probably makes it worse. Still, the idea was to make you think, and I achieved that!

I am ashamed of myself, but here is a self plug. For those who have not discovered my Orkishness thread, here is the skorcha I showed earlier in this thread. Spoilered for all you great peeps who take the time to here me ramble on on two threads.

Well the results are in on Bebops brilliant competition. So many inspirational works on the same model! Truly brilliant stuff. And congratulations to the winners amazing work.

My two entries came (as i expected) well down the list. But I am still trying to learn here and be positive. I will post my entries here now and I want people to rip them to bits. I need to know where I am failing. By the results I am failing pretty badly, so would like to sort that.

So here they are for your scrutiny.....please be openly picky about this.

Entry #1. 155.5 pts out of 255 possible.

Went with a standard camo brown type thingy colour scheme. Tried to do a little OSL on the gun buttons etc. And free hand painting on the helmet and pads.






Entry #2. 147.5 pts out of 255 possible.

Well what can I say. Went for ceremonial guard type of thing. Again with the free hand and little OSL. Really tried with the face on this one. Somehow even managed to paint on individual teeth. I did originally paint the pads all gold, it was a bit too much so painted the pads white with a gold trim.







Thank you for stopping by.

Realy nice looking figs there, the furball is realy good. Nice blends all over.

At the pic apart department on the guardsmen, here is my 2 cents on entrey 1 model.

Could use a nice matt varnish to take the shine of the cloth. My first thought of it is that the overall feel is realistic and some small details is cartoon style. Like the teal stripe on the jacket and line higlighting of the gun wheras the camo uniform and helmet+ face is more smoth and realsitic.

Sorry for my bad english and hope I dosent sound like an ass!

Post by: Gitsplitta


You know Cam, this is going to sound ridiculous but I think the second figure suffers from too many colors scattered around in too many places. To my eye... it just makes it feel a little unfocused. I love all the free-hand work on both figures... that's a real point in your favor. I tend to avoid it because I'm not particularly good at it. Painting the individual teeth just proves your a complete nutter.

I really like the judicious use of color in the first piece. Mainly a brown figure and very believable as a functional military uniform, but the aqua stripe really jumps out at you and adds interest.

1st figure looks like a battle trooper

2nd figure looks exactly like some frippy palace guard whose uniform was designed by a governor or lord with no sense of practical versus pure frippery in an attempt to awe the masses with a glitzy uniform.

2nd guy is guarding some frippy dandies and high lords in a Hive some where safe and clean, a show soldier, plenty of these mentioned in GW novels, the true troopers doubt that these guys will stand their ground when push comes to shove

I can't really add anything more to what has been said.

I've already given you my thoughts on the Orca guard. The other one (apart from the shininess) I feel is still a bit too brown. He could do with a bit more contrast between the armour and the base colour of the trousers. The aqua edge is good and I think there should have been a little more of the colour somewhere else on the model, tie it all together like...

Also the OSL needs a little more work. But I'm not the one to help with that as I've not managed to make that work myself.

Looking really good, great curved shapes on the hood and fenders.

If I were to add something, I'd suggest - esp if going for a realistic look - a slight modification on the tires. Wheels are flattened against the ground by the vehicle's weight, loosing part of the perfect circular shape and slightly bulging outwards

(Please bear with me here, trying to make a point of this is really stretching my command of English! )

If the wheels are solid, pressing them against a hot flat surface might achieve the look I'm trying to explain, or heating it first - reminded of your blowtorch while tipping - and quickly pressing against a flat surface.

If hollow, I'd suggest filing/sanding the ground side and putty-building up the bulge on the side.

Or not, and please excuse my rambling.

@LT I get exactly what you are meaning, and will try.

Door, yes just one for now. Went a bit mad here, it opens and the window works. I must be nuts, got to do another one now, and this took me about 3 hours to do this one, oh well.



Opening.


Sliding windows, as per actual vehicle.


Thanks for looking, sorry it's a bit off topic, but it is model related and I think is good practice for me for a future vehicle or two.

I am afraid I did not hinge the screen. need a solid base for the roof when it goes on, I may go back and do it though.

The glass is old CD cases. Never use CD anymore, and they where spares anyway. The sidings of CD cases have some nice texturing sometimes.

I will be back with an update later, but got RL poxy homer to do first. Don't feel like working, but got to get some dosh.

If I may, and if it adds, maybe the front suspension, when compared with the photo, looks a bit too wide - I doesn't look bad, just different from the ref, and I bring it up without knowing how close to that particular model you want to get.-

@ graven. Thank you, and that means a great deal to me from the Father-in-law.

@ Dr. H Thank you.

@ Zogg. Thank you sir, and welcome. As to the curves. Two methods employed. firstly for the hood and the front of the fenders, I used 1mm PC and heated it with a blowtorch, then quickly formed the shape I wanted. I think I used a pencil as a former. I had to get inventive with the side of the fender as that would be a very difficult bend, with the front one as well, so I actually cut a pc tube into quarters, after I bent it to shape, then glued a side on to the round and to the top and front bit. Bit of sanding and a lick of paint and there she blows... Hope that helps, if not please ask.

@ Red, thanks and yes I will be making a rag top for it, and got to make the back door. Also sorting out a base. Got a fair bit of painting WIP to be going on with.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you so much guys.
@ Theo, nice to see you dude.
@ Red.I cheat.Here is the very bad tutorial I showed on my other blog.

I would add some notes here.

1) You should only attempt this in a very clear open space.
2) This is one of those for ADULTS only.
3) This is DANGEROUS. Only attempt this if you are sober and feel competent to do so.
4) DO NOT set the plastic on fire. You only need to gentle heat it, if it catches fire it gives off very nasty fumes.

OK I use thin plasticard, I use this technique on all PC upto 2mm thickness, this is how I create the curves I have used for instance on the front wings of the Landrover. But for the canvas I use the really thin stuff. Almost paper thin.

Equipement:
Foreceps or Pliers.
Chef's blowtorch.
Bucket of water.(for safety. Have this handy and if all else fails, dump it in the bucket quick.)

Firstly get a hold of your material. Foreceps are good for this though pliers would be OK.


Light your blowtorch, get a firm grip of your foreceps, and quickly pass the torch across the material. Dont wag it about, you will quickly get the idea. It only takes a second and the material warps all over the place.


Now if you want a piece for a very specific spot, I glue it in place first using superglue, then apply the heat you end up with this.


And if you take your time and build a frame then heat the PC and let gravity do it's thing, you can form more complex shapes.


In this last one you also have the fenders formed by this method. Also note the rolled canvas. I glued a rod to the trailing edge of the PC and holding it and rotating, with the weight of the PC gentle heated it, it gradually rolled up nicely.


I personally will "mould" the shape I want with my fingers, this is not recommended, you can burn yourself easily, but you can also manipulate the material with pliers and, as I said let gravity work for you. You will often have to use a little more material than strictly necessary, and trim it to get the finer edges.

I hope this helps, it is not a technique for everyone, and should only be used if confident, but it is easy and the effects speak for themselves I hope.

Next up Landy final shoot, I hope.

Post by: Red Harvest


Holy Moley! I can't argue with the results. They are great. It is almost how glassblowers work. It alarms me a little bit though.

I thought you rolled out gray stuff or Fimo or something like that and shaped that. Something less dangerous.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/03/17 12:20:37


Post by: OneManNoodles


The technique certainly gives the results thats for sure.

I've been looking for ways of doing tarpaulins for a while, I might try with a heatgun tho, less chance of fire but more chance of things getting blown around.

The defender is awesome.

Another option for creating tarpaulin is tissue and PVA.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks guys. It is a bit dangerous, but worth the result, I have tried to get putty thin enough but it never works out for me. Ruglud's method is great for tarps like he has there, and I have seen some of his work which is just amazing. My situation was more of a "I want to remove it multiple times etc." type thing, and needed something a little more robust.

Well here is the finished Landy.










Thank you for your support and thoughts. I would love to know what you think of it now. It is off to my friend.
As I touched on before, this is actually modeled on the Queens own Land Rover she was using in the 50's on Balmoral estate here in Scotland, My friends father purchased the vehicle from the estate and it was restored to it's full glory and is now in a museum. He has a couple pictures, and is very proud of his connection, he was visiting one day and saw one of my ork trukkz and asked if I could do a Landy for him, here we are 4 weeks later. Delivery tomorrow. No charge, honoured to do it.

Post by: Red Harvest


Hey now, you can't blame me for inspiring ruins, good sir. I'm a build 'em up, not knock 'em down kind of guy these days.

Anyway, three layers to the wall? I see some foamcore, but what is the brown center?

I confess: I like the flooring. How about a trap door/cellar door in it?

A soap carving?

On Realistic thickness. Hmm, consider this Noodles, 1mm ~5.5cm more or less. (I use this for my ground scale. Yeah, I'm American, but after years of using grams and milliliters in the lab, I have adjusted to SI units. Plus I'm lazy, and it is easier to add decimals than fractions, or to find a decimal inch ruler.) The walls should be more or less 4mm-12mm thick, give or take a mm here or there, depending upon the building type. Most residential stuff in the US will be ~4mm thick, commercial stuff a bit thicker, and the skyscrapers and such closer to 12+mm. Something to try sometime, build to a fairly precise and realistic scale. I think you'll like the results. The doors and windows will look a bit narrow at first though. The giant 25mm bases tend to mess with our perceptions of scale on the table.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/03/21 23:12:41


Post by: Camkierhi


It is a bath, made of a special putty I use occasionally.
Used some plastacine as a former.

The walls are made using a strong MDF approx.5mm thick, then glued foam board either side. Mostly for the ability to carve it a bit as seen. Total thickness is 12mm. I figured the thickness would look a bit more realistic, even though it is a bit thick for true scale. We have walls here as thick as 600mm+ in some older buildings, Although typical for a modern house is nearer 300mm max.

My thinking here, which is limited, is it is a imperial residential building in a hot climate where thick walls help regulate temp. and it will have some new residents.

Yeah, in the tropics, nice thick walls are an old way of keeping things cool. And high ceilings.

Foamcore and MDF, I'd be fearful of warping. But I'm in a generally humid area too. That thing is going to have some weigh to it to be sure.

I have to confess for my own entry I let myself get inspired by your current ruin...pics of that later on. WhatiI need to ask tho is why is the first floor missing? Even a small leftover I would have expected?
The spray you use...airbrush or how did you avoid the melting of the foamcore?... The outer wall by the way already looks as if it has fungus problems...I would keep it that way if possible and build up from there... The inner flor by the way looks amazing...all those board and then the tiles...

Pre paint the foam bits with brush on paint. Let it dry. It is the propellant of the spray that melts the styrene, so just a quick primer of paint to seal it I find works well.

I have started using Army painter spray cans, and for the exterior, to add texture, I sprinkle Bicarbonate of Soda on the wet paint, it is a fine dust and absorbed by the paint, does not rub off, and leaves a nice texture.

As to the upper floor, watch this space, working on this as we speak.

Thanks Vik, I will be watching for an update from you soon then.

It's beyond steam Dr.H. Clean it with fire.

Wallpaper peeling off would be a good touch.

How much damage are you going to inflict on the surface of the wood floor?

Thanks for all your feedback guys, thoughts please.

In particular, colour of the exterior walls? Should I go lighter?

And as Red asked, what to do with the lovely wooden floor?

I will say I have plans that are a twist in the tail on this whole thing, but I would still love to have your thoughts.

I think the colour of the short wall (3rd pic) is perfect in that picture, do that. The long wall looks a little plain in comparison.

Good idea to do the second floor separately, really good all round.

There is a pink liquid mask (i think its made by humbrol?) That would be useful for chipping paint or peeling wallpaper ... hmm

Thanks guys, update.

Wallpaper. Ok so first I pre paint the walls. Then using a 50/50 pva mix put a layer of T/roll. While its still wet pull it around gently with a stick, so it tears here and there. Once dry I will paint it.

Lovely!
And the latest update with the wallpacer is simply genius
But I suppose the Ork in the batchtub will be in this room then?
So he'll be almost lost and invisible, which would be a shame. If it was up to me, I'd take the front wall fo this room (where your thumb is on the image) remove it completely and lay it out on the floor - lokking like it blew out (from some toilet gases?).
Then the bathing Ork would be clearly visible, but you'd still have the full structural support for the upper floor.
In regards to the paint inside and outside - I prefer to make everything darker, with lots of washes. They bring out the details and it is a lot easier to add highlights, or even light effects.
And then the simple omission of these dark washes in some areas are already the start for some OSL
I'll keep a close eye on this fancy build.
Cheers

Wallpaper, yes! Orc in a bathtub...hmm, please pixelate that, or give it lots of bubbles...the soapy kind

I saw a cool technique for a brick and mortar effect some time ago, grinding up white pastel sticks and rubbing the powder into the crevices. You may want to try something like that for the exposed blocks in the wall.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you. Really appreciate it.

@ Klaus. I think you could be right, I was hoping that the corner off would be enough, but I don't know now. And I think I will be putting some washes over it and then bringing it up a bit for the OSL. Your recent pieces have really inspired me to have a go.

@ Nerdy, I am honoured.

@MagosBiff90, Thank you, please keep watching, more to come.

@ Red, Thank you, and not to worry, nothing to see here! And I am thinking of something like that. Dave (dsteingass) has done some work on this quite some time ago now, I may go for one of these techniques, my only concern is that my brick work is a rough texture, and will catch a lot of the "mortar" too.

Thank you so much for your comments, I will return later with another update.

Post by: Red Harvest


A suggestion: needs some black mold/mildew spots on the back of the wallpaper, given that it is in a humid area. It looks fine as is though.

The brick should catch some of the powder, and then you wipe it with a slightly damp cloth, just like you would do with grouting. It gives the brick a 'worn' look. Never hurts to experiment, time permitting.

Thanks Vik,

Yes I made the duck, and thought about a toe or two, not too late yet. Toilet by Dr.H. Brilliant stuff. Added the occupant myself. Cut the feet off an old ork and drilled out the tops for the boots on the floor. Bath I made and filled with Hot Glue, then painted it up. Really like the "greening" I got on the side of the copper bath tub.

Much appreciated. Thanks for your amazing support.

Nice, Cam. Very nice.
Good to see he's all prepared for bath-time with his rubber duckie
Spoiler:



Although it's perhaps ambitious of the grot to think it can have a comfortable bath in the loo.

Yeah, the bright primary colours are a little strong. The blue and red in particular. If the building has been ruined for long enough for it to be peeling off, then the wallpaper would also be faded. Keep the bright colours in the corners and where it's in shadow or folded over. A dry-brush of lighter tones, maybe?

I'm guessing the blue wallpaper is going to get more washes, because it's intensely colorful at the moment. Too much for the rest of the piece. Aside from that it looks great.

The pooh on the wall. Normally it would be a pin-up poster on the wall, no? Perhaps it still is. What really hets up an orc anyway, apart from killy stuff?

Some matching Piglet curtains--suitably shredded and soiled of course-- for the windows.

The wood floor looks really clean for a total ruin exposed to the elements. But I like the weathering effect on the walls. The blue still looks a little too bright and cheery in my opinion, but overall the piece is coming together quite nicely.

@ Dave Thank you sir.

@Dr H. Thanks and will do.

@ Warboss, Thank you, yes indeed far too clean but hopefully some work on that now. The boots are cut off the bottom of a spare pair of ork legs and drilled the tops out. The window is an old cd case cut to size, then very thin styrene rod glued on one side. Then use washes, or inks to colour it up.

@ Red. thank you. Indeed more below on the fire. And see below for your boot prints.

@ Grim, great idea, I will add some paper floating about.

Well I have a problem....

I can't paint for toffee's. Trying for OSL and fire effect on the barrel and surrounding area, Have a look and tell me where I am going wrong, do I need to lighten things up? Also should I drybrush my walls to highlight the detailing?

Pics.....daylight shots for a chance to see the true colours.

Hey Camkiehri,
I hink you have a good start.
Some more dark washes to make the non-lit areas darker, probably some debris (small chunks of rock, little stones, tiny pieces of wood) on the floor first.
The buring can is already a good start.
Colorwise you can add some lighter parts. I usually start with red gore, then blood red, then a 1:1 mix of Orange and red, then orange, then 1:1 yellow and Orange, then golden yellow, then sunburst yellow, and finally for the lightest areas a 1:1 mix white and yellow - and I try to do these wet-in-wet (color not completely dry) then the transitions get a but smoother.
This way you have some bright colors at the hottest/brightest spots.
I hope this helps
Klaus

Nice idea with the gunfilled crates, tho I always imagine it for orks to be too much of a hussle to pack up guns in crates

Cam, that is awesome.

Only qualm would be to darken the shadow of the barrel where there would be most contrast with the brightest closest lit area.
Bright lights cast dark shadows, when shone from only one direction ... and all that.

Add some dark washes to the shadows (also the barrel, as the light is on the inside, so the outside is a lot darker)
A great start!

With the OSL, you may want to up the contrast between the bright areas and the recesses. And really, one of those crates needs an inhabitant. A 'rat-squig'?

Thank you so much everyone, really spurring me on.

@ Red. On it!

Ok taking all your great advice and adding shadow, trying to do it slowly so not much to show.

So I think I will share this little bit instead, next occupant having lunch, thanks Red for the book idea.

Very early wip so excuse colours and head. Best zoom in for details.

In situ!


Modelled by me.


Hopefully close up of cook book, you will have to zoom in on this, left it big to give scale.

@ Red. Great minds and all that, only trouble is I am running out of space.
@ Theo. Yes but they keep disappearing?
@Vik. Thank you. Got to raise my game, you guys did such amazing work in the last one, not sure I am upto it. Your own entry is looking solid and brilliant as always.

Sorry no pics just yet, had a move around yesterday, my beloved gave me some more space, so got zip done on the models. Back later with some progress I hope.

and what are it's thoughts on the current political climate of the 40k universe? .

So update, well couple little bits.

Just for you Red,


Added one of the guns....



Still PIP.

And finally a question.....Still heavily WIP but.
Thought I would go anti-air/missile.......


But the question is can you have too much Dakka.......


Thoughts?

It's no wonder that there are so many ammo crates about the place...

Nice sleeping bags.

As it's Orks, no, you can't have too much. Also, makes sense from the point that the guns and the rockets would be used for different targets, so worth having both.

OK, so it gets the full monty....(work will now proceed.)

Thank you for your fantastic feedback.

@ Vik, can't see you upset so, It's just a blob of putty sculpted, with an orks head shoved in one end. For the zipper part I made a row of dents with the end of my tweezers. Kinda sculpted for the shape of a body, shoulder, elbow knee, feet. I used that fast putty, but GS or Milliput would do, just take longer to set.

So while I was waiting for you guys I thought I would pop a roof on......







Got to go, need to work on that gun........


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/04/08 01:18:58


Post by: Red Harvest


Do orcs dream of green wooled sheep? Sleeping bag orc is great.

That is not much ammo at all. Do you guys know how many rounds you can go through in just a few hours at the range?

With the roof on it has a nice atmospheric quality to it. Or maybe it's the lighting. Either way, very serene.

Aha, LEDs, or EL wire. That would be the piece de resistance. Although at this point it might be too much retrofitting, so never mind. Next time though, lights.

So gun.
Took these earlier but did not have time to post, just primed it up so maybe pics later of painted.





Fully articulate, vertical swivel and 360 rotation.

And where it will be eventually....


Also throwing this out there. (votable image.) No pressure. But thought some might like it. Shame I cant paint worth a damn.

Getting there now, couple more bits I want to add, plenty of time.

Oh and @Red, Don't tempt me. If I could work it out I may just get some lghts in there.

Small update....

So first up ammo feed.

Took a square tube and cut it at an angle.


Added some rod sanded to a point for ammo, and some detailing, and....


Will get these painted up and stuck on tomoorow now.

Next...Gun controls.

I thought I would go remote on this.


Still very WIP...


And approx. where he will be.


Final resting place....


And added some small detail, shrooms and grubs.


As always thoughts, C&C welcome.

I've seen Ivy done by taking yarn and applying flock to it. here is the image link http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i287/TheBugKing/Warcast%20Studios/DSC01869_zps63f568bd.jpg

There are also those little seed pods-- Birch pod seeds-- that look just like leaves, But gluing them individually in place...hey, it would be a bit like riveting,come to think of it

Grafitti. needs some grafitti on the exterior, but I'm guessing you've already thought of that

And of course, looking specctacular


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/04/13 21:06:19

Lots of nice work Cam.

I was going to say the Birch seed pods. Something, I've looked into for future use.
Turns out, the best time to collect them is in August, which isn't much help in April... I suspect someone will sell you some on that internet thing.

I've seen people use etched brass leaves too. But I don't know where they come from.

The etched brass leaves came in a Warhammer basing set, but Woodland Scenics and JTT make all sorts of little leafy bits that would work. I bought a bunch of JTT railroad plants for my Bag End if I ever finish it. If nothing else, flocking would work well.

I only recently came across your blog and good god man you have some skills.

That watchtower on the first page all the way through to the Orky base is just mind bending stuff. Definitely will be following along for the ride.

What is next in the pipeline?


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/04/16 22:37:18


Post by: Camkierhi


Update-ish.

Thank you Red, DrH and Dave, knew I could rely in you guys.

Thanks for the comments. Always welcome, and welcome Archer and thank you.

In answer to you, immediately still busy on this orky base, got a couple bits to try and sort, and a few questions for you wonderful people, but first.

I bought some leaves, from the only UK one I could quickly find, did not look very hard, probably should have looked harder.




Now please do not get me wrong here, the product is quite nice, and the seller was nice and quick and very happy with the service, the only problem I have is quantity, this little box with what looks like maybe 100 leaves in cost £4.99 (approx. $7.50 for you guys out in the colonies.) Thats 5p a leaf?!! Geez. I was kind of hoping for a few more for my money, wanted a nice bushy ivy, looks like its winter now and this lot will maybe litter the floor for effect. (I kniow IVY is evergreen and does not shed but hey....) So plan B, I am trying different avenues for the leefy clumps I am after.

Been mainly working on LT's prize for the last Competition, (on other Orky blog.) but have been mucking about a bit with some stuff, here's what is on the bench.


The plan is a burger in one hand, pint in other. Table with Binoculars adn a sniper rifle proped up beside him on the roof with an umberella/parasol.

Ok question time, been racking my brains a bit for what this is, is it a HQ, a yuff hostel, or what? Reasoning is I want to put up a sign or two. Definately going to be one with the offer "Baff and a Burger 5 Teff! " Does that make it a Bar? And next is Graffittttiiiii , ok thinking " Waaagh!!" in big bold letters across the big wall, but it's a bit boring.

So gentlepeeps, your thoughts and comment's and criteque, would very much be appreciated at this time.

Thanks for looking.

Oh and coming soon I have 2 commisions, one is another old car, the other an ork scenery/terrain piece, so look out it could all go horribly wrong.

Ouch, those better have been individually polished on a beautiful woman's bosom at that price. They are actually harder to find on the internet then I expected.
Look nice, but I'll wait until August and then go hunting Birch (already been on a reconnaissance mission to see if I could find a tree or two ).

Deckchair Ork looks good. Nice idea (so many good ideas in one model).

As for what it is: It doesn't scream HQ to me. More of a rest stop/waypoint/forward barracks sort of thing.

Good luck with the commissions. Nice.

Another option for the leaves is to use one of those hole punches that scrapbookers use. I've seen clover leaf punches and some sort of other leaf, both of which may scale well enough. If you have a local Craft's Store (like a Michaels or Joanns or Hobby Lobby here in the US they might have it.) 75# or 110# cardstock qith paint on it is surprisingly durable for things like this.

Plusmodel stuff is always excellent quality, but yeah, expensive. It's a specialty firm out of the Czech Republic catering to 1/35 diorama enthusiasts. The Birch seed thing is fantastic, unfortunately, there are not a lot of Birch trees around my area either. Some enterprising person should collect those, preserve them, and sell them You're thinking that you want a broad leaf for ivy right? Probably want it very bright, waxy green as well?
