Yeah, just remember that at this scale, real camo patterns may make it all look too busy in photos and from table-height.

When you both say the bottom part of 9, I take it that that is without the diamonds?

As to the triangles, I dont know what I mean either.

That's ok then, you must have meant what I did then...

bebopdrums2424 wrote:I like the number 3 camo Dr H. Is this going on the cloak of the eldar scout?

Ta.
Yep, this is for his cloak. Just the outside, the inside will remain bare because it doesn't make sense for the inside to be camouflaged (and it's really difficult to paint it).

dsteingass wrote:Yeah, just remember that at this scale, real camo patterns may make it all look too busy in photos and from table-height.

Indeed. It needs to be exaggerated like bits of the models are.
It can also merge into one colour and no camo' effect is noticeable.

And thanks for the putty advice Cam. I'll stick with milliput for these for now as I'm most of the way through them and am eager to start on the resin casting.

Master casting of the third box (number 4... don't look at me that way... I haven't done number 2 yet...) and another toilet are underway.
On the toilets, I have had a go at some of the previous putty toilet casts and I think they are now OK. I'll show them later when I've taken the current cast out.

Bottom of the ninth appears to be winning. Thanks guys.

and here's the toilets I mentioned earlier.

On the right is the original sculpt.
On the left is the latest, fresh from the mould. A bit of the rim appears to not have moulded properly, but the rest of it seems ok.
The middle two are the previously shown casts, but after much sanding and carving and filling of minor gaps. Although one of them looks a little wonky, so I'll sand the rim a little more to straighten it out a bit.
You'll also notice that I've drilled the holes to give you room to add a little water.
The cisterns are also visible behind the toilets. They've been really tricky to get a good cast of, but I think I'll be able to make these work.

I may try casting the other toilet tomorrow.
Box 4 master is also nearing completion, just need to fit the sides together neatly.
Then I can start on box 2... Once that and tiny toilet are done up the the same level as these it will be very near to proper casting time...

Thanks Cam. The others have come out level, it's just that one is a little wonky. I've actually tracked it down to the base not being straight, so that's not as bad as the top being off.

Dr H. You can use resign in insta mold instead of a putty or a plaster. You may get more desirable results, of course you will have to add air channels and more.

There's a couple of reasons I've not used to resin with the Oyumaru; I didn't want to waste it on test casts as it wasn't cheap. I know that the resin is supposed to get warm/hot while it sets and wasn't sure whether that would cause issues with the heat-softened Oyumaru. I also wanted to keep the resin sealed until I needed it and if these tests took a long time it may not be at it's best when I came to do the final casts.

Great crappers! I like em
Thanks Comrade.

and that reminds me, I was going to update before I was distracted...
Box 4 is good to go

This is the biggest box I'm working on (although only slightly larger than box 3).
The top/bottoms are actually made to fit into the ends of the box and not sit on top as the others are. (just for a change and not because they somehow ended up too small ).

The first half of the final, smallest, box number 2 is in the moulds.
As is the first attempt at the Tiny Toilet.

Also, I painted the cloak.

There's a few little bits left to do on the model and he's done. I've even started on the bases for these two.

Parent teacher conferences at the kids school tonight and they had the scholastic book fair. I saw this pic in the Ridleys believe it or not book that was for sale. It's a crazy outdoor display somewhere in china. All the toilets were recycled, the big picture has some questionable things with it .

Thanks guys. I'm glad you like him. I've just got the bases to finish and I can reveal them in all their glory.

I'll add tentacles in a box to the list of open box options.

That's a lot of toilets... Not sure if I'll ever have that many to hand but the pictures do give me an easy to find example of many toilet types.

In other news; Just posted off the commission Terminators and together with the Librarian and the Tactical squad, they have paid for the Dark Vengeance box and I've not even finished the Dark Angels let alone started the Chaos army... Still not a good hourly wage (didn't really expect one), but it's good news anyway.

...where the landsacpe a bit resembles your camo scheme... and also of old WWII german camo schemes...

Oh yeah, we have that game, I see what you mean.
It should also match my basing, which you will be able to judge for yourselves tomorrow. They are finished, they are glued to their bases and I only have to paint the flame pattern around the bases before I'll take pictures.

Thanks Comrade, see below.

I'll start with the box. Here's box 2, the small one.

That's all the boxes complete and ready for casting.
A couple of the toilets still need some tidying and that's next on the agenda.

And, as I said, the guardians are complete. May I present...
Guardian Number 9.

The screen on his living Auspex didn't come out well in the photos, so you may need to zoom in to see that I did actually paint it.

and Guardian Number 10.

Spoiler:

Consciousness came to him like a craftworld gliding through the cosmos; smoothly, serenely and slowly. As feeling returned to his body, his mind wandered the foggy remains of his memory. He remembered growing up of the craftworld of Ctho not long after the birth of "she-who-thirsts" and he remembered the training he and a small group of his brothers undertook with the storm guardians of Ulthwé, but little of the time between these moments. The training and the skills he learnt were crystal clear in his mind but other moments from his life were clouded and indistinct.

He could now feel that he was wearing mesh armour and this reminded him of the colouration of the armour and the alterations that were made for his squad of Ctho Storm guardians. In respect for their Ulthwé teachers and to remain true to their own craftworld of Ctho their armour was predominantly a "bone" colour with black trim, although there was a fragment of a memory of dark greys and orange he could not recall the reason why.

His mind then settled on the last thing that he could remember from his life. There was an emergency on the craftworld, an attack? He was unsure. He remembers the craftworld hitting something, or something hitting the craftworld, a crash or a collision, again he was unsure. The last fading memory was of laying on his back with the warmth of a sun on his face, the smell of burning flora and of bodies in his nose. The sky was a brilliant blue with a few fluffy white clouds here and there and he was aware of many plants and trees surrounding him in the way that only a jungle can. Everything then began to darken and he sank into a deep sleep, but then, blackness and waking up here... where was here? Now, wide awake, he sat up and surveyed the surroundings; he was no longer in a jungle, he was in a metal-walled room with one door.

A voice came to him then, from a speaker in the corner, and said "Ah, you're awake, good. Welcome guardian number 10, Ha Ha. Now chop chop, get your equipment together and then you will meet your new family that you will be fighting with...forever." A slot opened in the wall and a Shuriken pistol and sword were pushed through from the other side, the sword was of a familiar yet strange design and had a red ribbon around it, and on that ribbon was written "chop chop".


Not a lot more to say about them really, I've covered all the various changes to them as I've gone along.
Any and all comments, questions and critique welcome. Hope you like them.

Really nice work.

No.9 Awesome. (Voted) Only question, (Totally nothing wrong) why did you decide to camo the um not sure what you call it, breather pipe maybe, from his backpack. Looks awesome as is. Can't fault it, just wondered. Crossed my mind you would paint the gems, and it would be red is all. Again not criticism, just asking why you went this way.

N0.10 Flawless. Absolutely brilliant.

Thanks Cam.

You mean the lumpy Eldar sticking up fin thing from his back? I thought about doing that and the targetter in red (or even as another colour altogether) but as they are sticking up out of the cloak and if he is to hide properly with the cloak, they have to be camouflaged as well or they'll give him away.
"where'd that shot come from"
"probably over by that bright red eldar thing there..."
KABOOM

I see it (as with the little fins on most guardians) as an aerial of some kind and as he had the targetter, he could only have one, and being a sniper would likely be working on his own, he got a big one to make up for that.

I also gave it a different pattern to the cloak as it sticks up and so won't look like a natural mound in the environment (like him under the cloak) and so just needs a "breaking up" style camo'.

The only gems I painted were the one on his chest (soul gem) and one on his armband thing. Again, I thought any others would give his position away.

Thanks for the votes too.
