Would it even be a bathtub? Or would it be like a barrel over an open flame?

Thank you everyone, wonderful feedback, and comments.

I will get to replying, but just for now here is an attempt at Ivy....

Snowflake punch, and bit of wire and some superglue.




Thoughts?

I have been looking on line and got to say there is an oppurtunity here, just can't get a reasonably priced leafy thing.

They still look like snowflakes to me.

Could you snag some fake ivy from a craft store? Or some fish tank plants you can cannibalize?


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/04/17 22:41:01


Post by: Dr H


It's not bad.
From a distance (e.g. not blown up to ~10" on my computer screen) and if you didn't know them to be snowflakes, they do look like leaves. Not terrestrial Ivy (due to the difference in shape), but they don't have to be terrestrial plants.

Maybe cut off one or two of the tips to make fewer leaves?


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/04/17 22:53:27


Post by: Theophony


Make it climbing clover, but have one cut down to four leaves instead of three and you can have people hunt for it. Also need a grot cabana boy , or an Orc who looks like Isaac from the loveboat .

Thank you guys, really appreciate the help, going to try a few things this week.

So I will let the pics speak for them selves, I am not happy with the skin tone at the mo, but you get the general idea.




Oh and his rifle....needs a suitable name....




C&C welcome as always, thanks for looking.

Well, if it's his very favourite gun, it would have to be called "Vera", but then he'd need a cunning hat.

Nice. The rifle is looking awesome.

Can't think of a suitable name myself. I'm no good with making up names, why do you think that my army is led by "The Scientist" and the rest of the army are referred to by number...

Post by: Camkierhi


Well, Thank you guys.

Thank you all for your suggestions Love them all, going to have a think on it.

So more pictures in a minute, however...... I am thinking of withdrawing from the competition.

This is no longer a piece of playable terrain. and I think that it is unfair to push the limit of the brief to this extent. I am not 100% yet but am seriously thinking about it.

Now these will probably be the last WIP shots of the whole thing, before final posting. I have more details to add yet and am working on several bits and pieces. Also going to go with Red's idea of some graffittiiittii on the blank walls. Probably going to add some flaggy things drapped out windows. Lots of foliage, which will be the last bits just about. Oh and some signs. I will leave you with the pictures and your thoughts are most welcome and indeed very much appreciated.....






Thank you, for looking.

Post by: Viktor von Domm


Nooooooooooo....Withdrawing is not an option mister! My own entry is also more a duo than a playable piece of terrain...and I bet others too. I think from my own clouded point of view, yours is without the shadow of a doubt the winning piece... Without that the then winner still would feel only second place. My opinion: man up to win...

Besides, little tower clearly stated that any entry could be either playable terrain or a diorama...so, for me your not off the hook yet *shakes fist*

Cam... seriously... enter it. Let the judges decide if it's playable or not. It deserves to be seen and considered.

Post by: GrimDork


I've seen several of the pieces in and out of the structure, do any of them still come out or have they been glued in? I'd say it's still playable, just a little odd having all those orks running around mid-game :p But hey, maybe they're civiliorks, just set dressing. It looks soo friggen cool though You've won...something... just by making something so awesome, whether you stay in the competition or not, that's a piece to be proud of!

I agree with Gitsplitta though, enter all the things and let the judges sort it out

Well thank you guys for the votes of confidence. I am sure it is far from cut and dry yet, several brilliant entries out there, not as many in total as I would like. I am hoping for some last minute entries. No victory if I am the only one to finish.

OK I am continuing on anyways, so here are some more little bits......

They breed!!!


More stuff.


Oh and a sign!



Thoughts.

Thank you all, really mean it, it makes a big difference.

oh....yuck!!!...what did you now bring up... are these spores? or worms?...what a cool idea... how were they made?

the sign is epic!...

and speaking of adding stuff on a day to day basis... somehow I am a bit like you... the more I work on my own entry it starts to collect new ideas as I go along... I think this only means how attached one is to his work...so long as you have new fresh ideas that actually have a meaning for the dio then this means you are really still into that build...which is a good thing...and it shows exactly this in each pic you present to us!!!

I love the amount of details you have added in as well as the osl and grime, the Orks skin tones (especially the first one with controller) are wickedly good too!! you've made a perfect mix of scenery/terrain/diorama/vignette that should be put somewhere safe for future awesomw inspirations! :-) great stuff dude i'm really impressed!

everything looks just amazing. my jaw dropped several times when i looked through this project.. just when i thought it couldn't get any better you just make something new and improves it again and again..

and i am specially fond of the duck in the bathtub
that's just great!

What you need to do, do. There is no stealing either, just borrowing inspiration.

I would say the drink needs a little umbrella But I'm really reaching for suggestions here.

Amazing stuff.

Excellent results so far. The Umbrella is great. The Giant Easter Island Ork head is great, I think I would use it for a future project rather than on the current one. I am envisaging primitive orks dancing around it to the moonlight.....

Ahem, I guess you are one of those über talented people that can keep adding details that the rest of us mere mortals wouldn't even notice until someone like you adds them in. Keep up the great work and I eagerly await the next little bit of wonder.

A couple of months back i came up with a word that is two words in one. and the two words are words that describe how something look or how something is. the words are "fantastic" and "fabulous". so instead of saying the two of them separate why not use them in the same word?

and this is a perfect moment to use it! this looks FANTABULOUS!!

Small update more to follow later.

Firstly.......



And then, problem? I am not sure about this, tried for a pipe sticking out with grotty water coming out, going to have a couple Grots collecting some water for the Baff, but I am crap at this so....


Thoughts please.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/04/28 17:17:10


Post by: Dr H


Nice sign Cam.

I think you've gone too blue with the water for it to look like water. Water only looks blue when you have a lot of it. Stick with the green-y colour you have nearer to the pipe with swirls of lighter/darker shades/colour (like a turquoise). Maybe some brown too.

I think washes and glazes are the best way to get the translucent water look. and a gloss finish.

Maybe roughen the surface to give it ripples and then dry-brush them with almost white.

Just some thoughts. I've not done water on models yet...

Love the signs & such.

I'm not sold on it over-flowing the base. I think it breaks the scene too much that way.

Post by: Klaus, not Santa


Wow Cam!
This is nice - I really love the new sign
Nice grafitti too.
Now you have to watch not to crowd the scene too much (a problem I run into most of the times).
The water additions...hmmm...not quite...maybe a bit too much.
Looking at the images on the previous page (daylight?) the OSL seems to work out nicely with the fire.
WELL DONE!

Post by: Red Harvest


The water could be greener. Not knowing what you used, I really have no advice.

For a bubbling effect though, Liquitex gloss super heavy gel. I suppose other make it to. Apply it then use a toothpick or pin to shape it. It dries clear and you can paint/ink/wash whatever it.

Here is a photo montage of it in action http://i.imgur.com/SbpYYCb.jpg.

Thank you guys, I have decided to forget the water feature. Hope the bath is enough for the competition. Just not happy with it.

@ Red thank you. I will try and get some at some stage, looks brilliant, but at this moment I am trying to do silly things with hotglue guns and it is just not working. Guess thats why they make proper stuff for the job.

@ Klaus. Thank you sir. I think you could be right. I will take some daylight shots tomorrow, and see what you all think. Maybe time to call it done. Although???

Tanx. OK update big pic dump.

I have noticed that:
1) I lied in saying no more WIP shots.
2) I need to tidy up a fair bit.

The competition is getting tough and I am a crap painter, need to really knuckle down over the next week.

So here are daylight shots, please feel free to comment, and let me know if you see anything off.

I've had a good look through and there's only a couple of things that I can offer advice about:
The rust on the legs of the little Hotel Calif-Orknia sign could do with a bit more attention to make it look less like orange blobs. The rest of your rust looks much better.

And you appear to have some yellow on the metal barrels of your gun. Give the whole model a good look over for those little slips as they make the difference.

As a whole, it's an awesome model. Good job Cam

I think the only thing to add/change would be the top of the umbrella should look like a target from above, but keep the already painted parts as it's been struck once or twice before by a passing by grot plane .

No. Just no.

I have been a painting judge (maybe I've mentioned that) and have seen thousands of minis and hundreds of display boards. I know crap painting all too well. Your terrain is very well painted. The minis are tabletop quality, a little better than average tabletop quality actually, which is a good place to be unless you want to be a "competition painter" or have something to prove.

Thank you all for responding.

@ Red, thank you, very much appreciated.

OK think I am finished with this wall now, finally calling it done, getting close, I seem to hae hit a wall now, on the whole thing I have ideas to add still, but heeding the advice given, I think I am going to stop. Jst tidy up my painting, and call it a day. I also have 2 commisions waiting in the wings, that have me thinking and distracted slightly.

Anyways this wall, finished!



Finally finished (I hope) Littletowers Trophy for the last competition. Please remember this was his request. Spoilered here, I have put it up on my other Orkishness blog.

Thanks forlooking in, please call again.

All comments are welcome and I will post the final pics here once the comp ends on the 11th.

I made, one night outside, holes due to fire exposure in it because it was so cold I had to be too close to the campfire we had lit... ach... glorious times^^

Between you and Viks you have covered the ork leisure time love the colour you have added with the graffiti just makes the model pop

I have to say my favourite piece is definitely the ork on the lounger with umbrella just awesome work this is going to be a hard one to judge a winner on me thinks.

Just had to add the stairs with the moss build up on the edge nice touch that

Said it throughout the build, great job Cam.

Love all the little details and the way the whole piece tells a story.

and as it's the last opportunity to say so; lovely boxes you have scattered over it and a nice toilet...

I too like the dirty stairs.

You are all very silly.

OK The Hotel won the competition, in case you did not know.

I have been very distracted lately, RL been mucking me about and also I was asked by Gitsplitta to make him a little project.

But now back with avengance, well actually with an idea, here we go....

Bought this in a silly toyshop type place.


Well I can see dune buggy attack craft for my desert dudes, so here we go.....

Remove the surfboard..

Strip it down....

Key the paint, removing decals etc...

Prime leather brown..

So this is where I am at...


Going to add a gun on the top there, driver and co. Stowage on front, bigger bull bar on front, silly exhaust on back, already changed out the front wheels. Going to paint it up a fair bit more yet, started on the interior.

So your thoughts and critique as always are most welcome.

With the new paint job I instantly thought of Herbie the love bug, or whatever his name was in the old movies. It almost looks too casual to be military grade. Not sure how to fix that though.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/10 06:26:15

I think this buggy is very close if a bit more smoother looking to the FW tauros scheme...

with a top mounted autocannon or HB I think your´e golden.... how you will be doing a seated model tho will be very interesting for me...! (read as...do it !!! )

Reminds me of a model I ned to work on at home which is a counts-as Attack bike, I got it as a trade and was based off of 1 of these.

Well, thank you guys,

So I dug out something for a comparison shot......





Ok it is a bit big but it is a 4 seater not 2 man, etc...etc...

I am going to do more work on it see if I can't military it a bit, still like it for a transport / support vehicle for my IG army, not like I care if it's legal.

i think what is needed is to get rid of the smiley face of the buggy... the lights and the fender look as if it is constantly smiling...so a bit of meanfulness would do the trick...you know that each car has its own face? right?...

Post by: Camkierhi


@ Vik you are so right, and see below for a start on this.

@ Monkey. And you too are soo right, but spikes will come later.

@ WP Which one? the new one or the GW type one? The new one is from a silly toyshop on a camp site, however I have found a wholesaler who could sell me 144 at a time?? The GW one is part of a massive purchase I made from Graven, think it's FW, not sure though.

OK pics and off to bed.......
So drilled some holes and made supports/hardpoints for me to attach plastic to.

Glued in, don't think I would have too much success without the hole.

Some hard points on the side for me to mount stuff off.

clean enough underneath.

And with a bit of a stowage rack on.....

Glad you got rid of the eyeball headlights, now it needs a bar light setup over the windshield, which also needs bulletproofing. Lots of lights and a speaker on the bar too. That way you can dazzle them with brilliance as your riddling them with bullets, and rocking out the sound at the same time.

Also needs whip ariels to be a command and control fast vehicle.

While I really like the hardpoint idea, this will definitely go straight into my lists of very useful methods for converting....I think the rack up front is too big, I highly doubt that yon driver will be able to steer by sight through the windshield? Tho I do have to say the build looks cool...

Post by: Camkierhi


Well thank you guys, I feel I have finally made it, well sort of.

Been working (RL) like an idiot struggling to have any thing like my usual mojo for this, but want to see where this goes.

Points I have taken are drivers view, and get rid of the smiley, so here we go .....

First alter interior......The guy is from the sentinal box. Did an enclosed sentinal so body is spare. Will have to do some conversions for the co-driver etc, but this will do for the driver. Raised the seats.



Lowered the front, stowage rack, (actually lowering this furrther as we speak) Needs lowered a bit further. Now sanding it down and shaping it a bit.





Hope the bar on the front is a start at loosing the smiley.

Question for you......exhaust, horizontal or vertical. (its a bit big at mo but you get the idea.



Thank you guys. Welcome to the new guys and please all keep it coming.

Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/12 20:53:22


Post by: Viktor von Domm


hmmm... for the exhaust I think the horizontal version is the one you should go for...after all these are desert rats... on any other setting I would go for the vertical one as it would allow small drives through shallow water...

also... do you need a further sentinel pilot? I could send you one... I still have a spare one...
also... if you are for bitz hunting I would suggest looking at the legs of taurox drivers...

as for your work issue... I really hope you soon get rid of these long working hours... you may be sure I am crossing my fingers for you here...

oh...also... the interior looks already cool... as if it is velvet seats...


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/12 22:40:25


Post by: monkeytroll


I like the idea of twin vertical exhausts, or possibly angled back slightly...but if I'm being totally honest I have to admit that's just the mek in me speaking...I think the horizontal look is the one to go for here.

Nice work so far.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/12 23:39:24


Post by: GrimDork


Knowing little about the mechanics of vehicles, I would say the horizontal is more aesthetically appealing to me. This is shaping up nicely.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/13 02:17:34


Post by: Theophony


Normally I would say vertical, but with speed I think good all around view is needed so I vote horizontal.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/13 13:15:32


Post by: Dr H


Good work Cam.

If that's the exhaust you plan to use, I say horizontal. It looks a bit too tall for vertical.
If you're open to other ideas, try plugging in "bug exhaust" into google (or your favourite internet search engine), there's plenty of possibilities...
Spoiler:



Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/06/13 13:25:31


Post by: dantay_xv


I woul have said vertical, purely for the practicality of taking it off road, if the exhaust got coverd by water/swamp/ sand, then the engine would stall out.

But rule of cool trumps everything, so go with what you like most

@ Vik more parts from that 1:48 scale Supacat Coyote. They just seem perfect.

@ Red Not done any yet, got to do some at some point but my time is sparce at the moment.

So Update, just a little.....Theo it's your fault, (anyone notice that happens alot.)

Winch for front end.....



Rough positioning..


And she's on....


Also getting a million different washes to look dirty and dusty and generally lived in.

Question, wheels? Go with the one of the different sets I have tried so far, or order up some zinge wheels that would probably better fit size wise.

Next I think I need to work on the crew. That will be much later probably, thanks for looking in.

and thanks for the explanation of the bit for the bumper!

Great winch. Also looks like it could double as one of those old fashioned clothing dryers...wringers they were called? Useful for drying the garments after washing the blood and gore from them

Any way to get a more 'steel cable' look to the winch cable? They all have that woven/braided/twisted look to them. Or will you paint that on?

Thank you guys,

Sorry not much of an update. Just for you Vik, here is the rouges gallery, hope these shots help.






And the one I hope you wanted...



I chopped the legs off at the hip, shaved the joint, and stuck them back. The waist got a slither of PC 2mm at the back and 0 at the front to help the back line up better. GS to taste.

Obviously turned a few wrists on these guys too, and one arm is made from 3, but thats the easy bits right?

Will hopefully have a bit more tomorrow, got me wheels in the post today, not had chance yet though.

Thanks for looking in.

indeed... these where the shots I was looking forward too...

very informative... I was hoping that you would have done it that way... thus I can see a way of copying the method!

a three part arm... well that is a new one to me... respect!... two was the peak for me...until now^^

also... do I see that right that the one hangeron is indeed a hangeroness?... where is that female body from? certainly not GW otherwise there would be more of a stuffed chest^^

Thank you all, you are too kind.

So trying to decide whats next, so pulled an old one off the shelf of shame, and did a bit this evening.

Did not like the feet I had on it, (points to the first to guess which shameful model it is for, have to go back a fair ways.) Not even sure the model is still legal/relavant. soo.....

New shoes! well kinda....
Started by cutting and gluing some square tubing to a piece of PC.

Bent and cut some rod.

Glued in to make toes.

Need 2.

Time to stick it to the base.

Inserted a pin, and dry fit of the big guy on his new shoes.


Thank you for stopping by.

oh... these new feet look very good... and mean... but that´s of course the point for that chaosy warmachine...

wanted to add why I like your buggy...

the last additions look very good... the binder held tank for instance... or the shoulder slung lasgun...

I have to say the skin tones look very good...a very convincing hue all over...

after seeing the presentation pics tho I have to add one thing...the driver has way longer legs than midget steve on the passenger´s seat... he looks a wee () bit comically with his stubbly legs all stretched out still only on the seat... I think his feet should have been resting on the floor of the buggy too... just as the driver does...we really need more sitting legs for all our scratch built drivers... GW do you hear me? !!!

Measure twice, cut once Vik. Saves so many head-aches. and $$$, or in your case €€€.

Cam, do you use any sort of diffuser on your light? It looks kind of harsh. Even a piece of white sheet in front of the light may help.

That thing looks pretty smashy, good job.

I can measure as many times as you like, I'm still liable to cut more than once for one reason or another. I do not have the architect/contractor skill of straight lines and scale and all that.

Practice, GrimDork, it's just practice. And a good straight edge. I manage despite numerous issue with my mitts. So, I reckon anybody can.

Idunno red, I'm pretty sure it's just a weakness of mine. I may be able to get better, but I'll still be climbing out of a hole... my lazy side urges me to choose activities for which I have more of a starting bonus

So Cam, what exactly is that monstrously violent looking chaos beastie? In game terms. Or is it just a fun conversion? I may have missed where you already explained it, but if not then I just dunno chaos things well enough to guess it. Pretty violent and smashy looking though, good work

Thanks as always,

@ Shas Indeed thank you.

@ Red and Dr H, Yes I am interested to see what the heck I do as well, Bought with the intent of saving me on making track assembly and such things. Personal use only really, though I suppose if anyone asked me nicely once I have anything I will let them have, at the moment cutting a hundred individual links and detailing puts me off many projects, however I have seen Klaus use it very effectively and what seems to be quickly to make bogies and links. Also some of my guns I tend to make up, I may try and cast up.

Wish me luck, just got to get the courage up to have a go.

@ Grim Thank you, it was originally meant to be a Decimator Daemon Engine. Me son asked for one, but the FW model is like OMG expensive, so made this. Similar size, and the best I can manage on the weapons. Probably never see battle. The weapons are a seige claw thingy, with a built in flamer, and a butcher cannon. Both are wonderful stat's and do lots of damage, in theory.

So what I been doing, well just bumming around really, made this up, maybe just terrain maybe a base for something not sure.





Thanks for looking in, please feel free to comment.

was that an underside of a toy car?... clever... using the junk that has no "real face" to it for ruined terrain!

and I wanna see you get into casting too... not only to later on maybe ask you nicely... but rather to see someone stepping boldly where I would like to go one of these days (make that read years) ...

Good use of the car part on the terrain/base.

Good luck with the casting. Make sure you have everything you could possibly need before starting, as you don't want to be searching for something while the stuff cures. Start small / simple / easy and don't try to do too many moulds/casts in one go, as you may just end up with a nice cast of the bottom of your mixing pot (like I have from my first attempt).

My casting materials have arrived today, so I'm now staring at my things laid out on the table...

So new project time.

First though...

@ Archer I use superglue and bicarbonate of soda. Then paint it up. I give it a coat of Hobgoblin Orange, then drybrush it chainmail, then washes. It's not as brilliant as many people do, but I like it and it is quick.

Next

I do second what archer just said. you are a crazy crazy man..
but in a good way!

the new stairs looks like a better approach.
however, i hate to say this, but it looks very compact. :/ it kinda looks like you have to crawl or crouch to get up or downstairs.
could just be the angle though.

I hop in here way too late....... sorry mate... laziness and bugs got the better of me... and the sun.... the sun...is killing me...

your house/ruin looks amazing... as we begin to expect....

and you totally fooled the heck out of me with that picture painting...... I totally mistook it for a 1:1 scaled version...thinking you would go for a new hobby take with your painting skills.......you totally went bob ross on that one!!!

but I am with the others... your take on the spiral staircase looks excellent but it appears still a bit hobbit style...a bit more spaced out and you are truly golden....(depends of course on what sinister use you have planned this piece to be for...)

cheers mate

That painting is indeed very well done. The frame, tongue depressors? I've actually been wondering how doing something like that might look. Now I know. Thanks.

it looks like you have the faux marble technique nailed down. Very impressive. I believe that I have tried that technique (one of them anyway). It takes some patience. I'm glad to see you've mastered it. But not surprised

The spiral stairs... Hmmm, love the idea (of course). It looks like you may have one coil too many. Due to the width of the risers? Are you going to clean up the edges of the risers? They look ragged. And is a handrail/bannister forthcoming? I know, I know, too many questions.

Edit: added a bit to first paragraph.

Thank you so much guys and dolls, fantastic responses.

@ Archer, I wish I could.

@ Grim Thank you.

@ DiDDe. Indeed thank you, and I think you and others were right so see below, please let me know what you think.

@ Dr H. Thank you, I will endeavour to add some MOAR.

@ Shas. Thank you, not sure it will be Orky, not sure it will be anybodies, I have a plan, See below.

@ Vik. Thank you master. I have missed you. Indeed Sir Bob was the inspiration. Might yet do a couple more, just for kicks. And see below on the stair situation.

@ Red Thank you, coffee stirrers, 45 degree mitres. Painted on card. I promise I will do a bit on my take on the marble. Littletower has a piece in person so best ask him if it's any good really. And again the stairs below....

@ Graven, Panda and Gits thank you gentle peeps you are far too kind.


Well where is this going?

Originally it was meant to be a small piece, I wanted to use one of Dr H's bathrooms, and I had a picture in my head of a ruined house, hardly anything left, a sniper and spotter perched in the ruins of the exposed bathroom, with an unknown assassin below creeping up on them.

It has got a bit bigger than intended, and I am not sure whether to go dio or terrain piece, I may put the figures in but make them removable. Thoughts gratefully recieved.

For now though, firstly I took on board what you all said about the stairs, and here you go see what you think....they are in the process of weathering and I chucked in Johnny guardsman for scale. It is just over 3" (80mm) between floors. to give the impression of stately home.




This is where the bathroom will be...


And can you guess what this is?......(two raised floor boards...)


It's a light switch.......




Thank you all and thank you for looking in, please keep the comments coming....

Oh good god he has become an electrician. I have a cousin in law whose husband has an amazing out house with a light switch concealed beneath the floor boards.

I like the idea of removable figures, anything that makes such an amazing piece of work multipurpose has go to be the way to go?

I do have in front of me a slab of true Camkierhi marble, and
I can certainly vouch for it!

(Sorry, Cam, but you will have to do a tut now!)

i think your next one needs a happy lil cloud then

the lighted terrain piece/ diorama is developing into pure stunningness!

and the handle bar to the staircase is the needed addition that brings this detail into reality!

it is also not the second time you did marble... remember everyone the "not worthy " comp entry?... there you did weathered marble too... you really have a knack for this!

to answer the question...well... it will essentially be a dio... but it is meant to be played with... so terrain piece too... heck... why label it

removable models I think nevertheless are a good decision!

also... I would like to see the "innards" of your electricity works here... I am about to reveal my own work on the current project and it is vast and wide... well it has 20 lights (only 19 shown...) but it has costed me quite a nerve...I like that you actually managed to conceal the switch with a detail that even works ...very sneaky...

Post by: Red Harvest


Vik, I had to do a double take when I read 'handlebar'. That, generally refers to bicycles. Bannister, or hand-rail for stairs. Forgive the correction. There is also a handlebar moustache, but that's sort of OT

Lights. It's about time you guys started using them.

The stairs are much improved. Good job.

I second Vik's request to see the wiring.

And please..

Post by: shasolenzabi


But the handle bar moustaches are wild. I just don't care to grow one that is big enough to wax it like that.

But Cam last year was all thinking he was not that good, and yet here he is! now making all sorts of well made and painted projects!


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/07/26 20:46:44


Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks I will sort out some pics of how I did the wiring.

Here is the tut on marble.

Like I have said, I am no expert and others have done much better than me before now. This works for me...




Hope it helps and any questions please ask.

Hope to get some stuff done tonight so more later on.

Interesting tutorial. Saved for later.

Bathroom is looking great together, and painted, and in a room.

How were the pieces to work with?

and I love the scum ring around the bath.

and I like the addition of the shower.

So, I'm forbidden from posting a sellfie then? Hmm, well it's not a handlebar moustache anyway. Too much maintenance.

And no "stupid foreigner card" Vik. This is an international forum. There are no foreigners here. Native English speakers make diction choices like that all the time. We have too many words.

Excellent tutorial. I love seeing those things. As a suggestion, you can also 'float' the layers of veining using a gloss acrylic glazing liquid, or glazing compound.

Everything looks great. The shower head, nice touch. Perhaps some sort of curtain rod? The ring sort?

Good to hear.
Yeah, they were always going to be fiddly because of the scale. Although they are easier to clean up than carve from scratch.

Additions are looking great. Nice work.

Quiet whipping voice: yes baby, when we get all the way out of this bag were going to find who did this to us and make them pay. Yes. Pay in spades. No one puts me and baby in a bag and gets away with it. NO ONE. What's that baby? You think his name was Theo......yeah, when were done with him he'll wish he used a pine box instead of a bag. Rest now baby. The hunt begins.


Looks great with the pose, he just makes me think of a crazed sniper whispering the sweet nothing to his rifle. The cloak will look great once painted all camoish.

Have you seen the gili suit tuts floating around on dakka? I think it might add some bang to your model. It is also a very easy sculpt to preform.

Thanks Panda I will investigate...

So I know it has some primer on but that does not mean I can't ad more.




Tried the dental plaster......


It is brilliant, fast set and hard as heck. Got to make it a bit "thinner" / sloppier next time. Followed the instruction, but had to press the stuff into the moulds.

Also waiting on this lot!! We will see...

You could try adding some birch seeds to the sniper teams cloaks, the cloaks look great as they are otherwise.

mister... I just showed my wife your paintings...and your failed (joke) home improvement project....(only ever a fiew models happen to get shown to her every now and then...)

she liked the more warmer, sunset scenes of course... and the staircase has won her over too....(you´ve won me over long ago....)

the tut looks amazing.... and I have eyed up some special brushes quite some long time.... this sweeper brush and then some of these flat spaced out brushes are quite interesting.... ever stumbled on a bent brush?... I might need to take a pic of that one for you....

with all these cool framed pics.... I think a theme for your not ruined building needs to be said art gallery....there is little choice for you there


also... did you sculpt the sleeping bags before choosing the bitz to make the snipers?...what a cool idea to get different poses.... cutting off legs and then making a lying sniper.... I need to remember that idea... brilliant work....if I wouldn´t knew your first name already I'd say you must be called arty

Thank you guys

Pics are props really, but a bit of fun anyways.

Here is some work on the sniper, with a question, what do we think of the camo? Does it need Birch leaves? I was all set to do that as OMN had suggested, but got to this stange and not 100% sure.





He is still very much WIP at this stage, just thought I woud get an opinion on the camo...

Thanks again guys.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2014/08/03 19:51:58


Post by: Dr H


For that type of camo' I would say "no" to the added leaves. I think leaves would go better with a more natural camo' scheme, rather than the geometric shape camo' you have there. (not that I'm an expert or anything).

Nice camo' scheme.
