This is way too cool. I see your techniques and I go "what the heck is he doi- OHHHHHH THAT'S SO AWESOME!" hehe. I thought the sand was a little overdone at first but you have definitely toned it down to the appropriate level. It is gritty and I hope you add a bunch of red highlights to make his armor even more regal. Can't wait for the eyes too. Maybe use the glow paint on them as well? might make them very sinister.

How much does this thing Weigh? I am guessing you need a reinforced shelf for it to sit on!

Yeah, that might look good indeed. And in any case I'm going to make them dark green as with my FW Marine, but the glow in the dark paint is pretty transparent... might work!

lol, well, Cassar over at SFM actually sculpted a Slaanesh termy right after mine was finished. It's a wicked sculpt!

Surprisingly, not thàt much. The dried sculpting stuff is not very heavy, but it's still a good handful.

No progress on the termy yet, the trooper had a deadline. But...
Finished! This must be some kind of record...

Progress! Or rather, the start of progress. I gave the repairs a coat of black to see how it all dried and cured. And it looks spot on to me, not a seam in sight. Once his hand guard has been weathered up-to-date (which would take only a bit of sponging), and the gold's been retouched I can continue the rest of the model. Actually, it's been so long that I kind of forgot where I was in the whole process. It actually looks as if I could go straight for painting gems and lenzes and then it's the final round of weathering. Some grease around the armour joints and some weathering powders here and there and then the main body is done. After that I still need to paint up the bolter, the halo, the cabling, the besagews, and the hip guards. I should probably come up with some heraldry for one of the armpit guards...

Nice! I really like the paint job you've given him. Very suitable. He looks like he's been fighting his way though the depths of a space hulk! He looks about the size of a Titan. How much does he weigh?

Whuh? 2013? Ermm...

Well I've been sidetracked for a while... A little gift for a friend.



Et voila!
Lighting conditions are less than optimal, but they have to do. I also managed to loose the little loose strand of hair that's supposed to go on top of her head. After finishing the entire model & assembly, I was a bit to quick to clean my workspace and managed to chuck it into a full garbage bag. :( I could make a replacement using some green stuff, but I didn't have the time to let it cure and then paint, sadly.

Anywhoooo




@Zwan1One:Good question, never weighed it actually. It's not light, I can tell you that much.

Alrighty, after a long pause it's time to continue. I've got so much in the pipeline but seeing as this project is closest to being finished, it deserves to be.

It's just some small odds & ends really, and first up is the Storm Bolter.

I was tempted to paint the magazines fully in another colour but them it seemed it might look a bit at odds with the rest of the model, which is predominantly red. Finally I decided to just add a detail stripe in a no-too-contrasting colour.
Although I like the combo with the red, it also looks just a tad too bland, but I'll add a freehand black line to separate the colours, and if I can pull it off, a thinner white line withing the black one. That should provide sufficient variation considering the gun still needs its metalics and the gold/copper detailing.

Then I still need to do the Halo which will receive the same treatment as the rest of the gold detailing on the armour.
The two hip plates I'll definitely leave red but I am pondering what to do with the armpit armour, a.k.a. the besagews.
Although I'm tempted to do so, I'm also feeling hesitant to make them too contrasting with the rest of the model. The shields are perfect to paint some personal heraldry on them using white or yellow, halved or quartered, and then add some small iconography, but I fear that the result might draw the eye in too much and thus distract from the whole of the model. The alternative would be be a full red or black background (one each?) and the keep the iconography accordingly simple in black (on red) and white or yellow on black.

I'm curious to hear what your thoughts are on this?



And just because it's a cool pic.

ive seen some big truescale marines, BUT THIS IS REDICULAS...

in all honastly, the painting, not even eavy metal could have done better, the only thing letting down the model is how the sculpt isnt very crispe, i look foward to seeing it done

Cheers guys, thanks for the warm welcome back. It's encouraging.

Alrighty, the Storm Bolter is ready for sealing with varnish and then it's time to pack out the oil paints for washes and stains.
The weapon may look a bit rough at the moment, but as you may have seen from my previous models, oil paint washes are wonderful, wonderful thing. the lighting also isn't showing all the subtle details in the paint.

Also, painting the freehand stripes made me realize that free-handing complex details on the shields will be out of the question. Getting those little lines straight, crisp, and parallel is frickin' stressful. Being the scale that it it, any iconography will have to be mathematically crisp in order not to look too dodgy. Considering I the rest of the detailing on the model are either etched brass and decals, I need that same crispness to stay consistent. I've gone through the decals I have and already found some usable stuff, and I'm thinking maybe to print some new ones. I still have some laserjet decal paper and that way I can go all-out if I want to. Now just to design some...

So the black oil paint was is on and dry. It still needs some cleaning up here and there with a damp brush or ear cotton and then I can seal it for the next step.
The halo I had to spay in a solid colour, as the too much paint came off smooth surface, while rubbing the salt off. It was till prepped with some rock salt ever since I first started the project so I guess that two years isn't that brilliant for the 'salt' technique. Still would have worked wonders though in case I wanted to flake off larger chunks of paint though.
I'll add some blemishes here and there with the 'dry-sponging' technique.

The bolter's been cleaned up a little but, and the halo received its ink wash and drybrushing.
Everything's sealed with varnish for the next bout of oil paints.

Cheers, guys!

So, the bolter & halo almost finished. Then the hip shields, which need little work, and the besagews, which still need a design...

And the base, that's on order. I decided i do not want to lose half a year making a base so I ordered some.

I thought simply to put this (from the CMON store, oval, 120mm)


On either this (ebay, 30x13cm):


Or this (also ebay, 20cm round):


Any thoughts?

What colors were you thinking on that tile? The stock image is pretty busy? It may distract too much from the marine, but I don't dislike the idea of it. More muted colors in a closer palette to one another would probably look better.

Yeah, indeed. I don't intend to make it that colourful either. At first though I was thinking to not paint it with the 'star' pattern it has. I was more thinking; the circles a warm but muted beige/ochre, paint the inner circles/pie slices black,and then use the pattern in the outer circles to make black diamond shapes. That way I don't stray from the chosen colour palette and it's not too distracting whilst hopefully providing a nice balance to all the red of the termy itself. Whaddayathink?

Yeah. You're on the money. I like the idea of muting it down but keeping it warmer opposed to cool greys or something.
