Looks really good. The pose and upsizing works really well.

Terminator looks great, and I like what you've done with the base as well.

Thank you all so much for your comments.

Really need you to scrutinise this for me now, so here you go pic dump....











Thank you for looking, much appreciate your thoughts, I think I see a couple bits, but would be grateful if you see anything, before I enter it. Dead line is the weekend really.

I'm not a huge fan of the green in the vents on his back. I usually go for a metallic, like lead bleacher with black wash or tin bits. Otherwise looking cool, I like the use of the HB ammo feed.

Thank you Gits and Graven much appreciated sirs.

@ EDC I kinda do them that way now, but I am not sure really. I like the idea they have a nuclear reactor strapped to there backs, but then really its just an Air Con unit so probably over doing it.

Just setting up for a photo shoot.

Thank you all for the comments, really appreciate it.

Well, the power armor is powered by a small fusion bottle. Blue is usually electrical, but actual cherenkov radiation shows up as blue. Funny that.

Well after some photos and looking at some of the entries in the competition and seeing Red Harvest's latest work, thought I better push a little harder. See what you think.....



And some individual shots....









And just for laughs, I found one of the old AoBR Termies I had speed painted a few years back and did a side by side, I was looking to show the difference in size and pose, but boy oh boy does it show what you can do if you care about the paint job....


I have enjoyed this, but it was a bit more of a distraction than I really wanted.

Thoughts on my final entry appreciated. Could always have a glance at the gallery and maybe vote! ...cheeky bugger!

Ta Gits.

Well here we go another LoER Terrain Competition.

Base...

Bit of stuff and some paint....

Bit more stuff and some paint....


A quick word on stuff!
This may be old news and I have just missed it before.
One of the stuff I am using this time was an accidental wonderment. I was going through some boxes and found a container I had some Air Drying Clay in, thought I would do a little sculpting, however the clay was rock solid. I thought well I will do it like and old master and carve it out of the block, but when I started carving this happened....


And in place with abit of PVA...


I think it looks spot on for rubble dust and rough stuff. Now I would not say necessarily let some go hard, but to be honest you could. But if you have a lump that has gone hard, this works fantastically. Nice mixed grade.

Anyways hope that helps someone.

Thoughts appreciated as always.

Bit more....

Bent some sprue around....


And made some trees...


Mixed up some GS and some Milliput and made a vine....



Bent some more sprue....


And cut some bits...


Added a bit of Putty....


And did a few more out of that GS Milliput mix...


Once I have most of the painting done going to try a water effect on the portal bit to give it depth.


Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment.

Damn that is coming along nicely. Would it be worth texturing the vortex where the tentacle is coming out of to give it that effect of interacting with the vortex? Or are you already planning that and I am jumping the gun?

Oh and archer...I think he planned just that exactly ahead already, as there is a triangle still all dark on the vortex where the tentacle is coming out...

Cherenkov radiation is surprisingly beautiful too. When viewed from a safe vantage.

Nothing to add, except to echo Vik about safety concerns. And that vise, attached to a granite top? Oh, please don't do that again. But the twisted trees did turn out well... Nice idea for the tentacle suction cups too.

Thanks for comments guys,

Note on safety, you may see me doing stupid things on here, I by no means advocate such behaviour. ALWAYS cut safely, ALWAYS use a well ventilated space to do any activity where you might generate fumes, do not spray paint in doors and above all preparation is the key, don't use a blow torch in a messy area.

Having said that we are mostly adults here, and what you do in you corner of the world is up to you, I hope you are responsible enough to know your limits and to be careful, this is a hobby, not worth burning the house down for.

Next:

@ Archer Indeed texture is coming, just done it in fact (no pics just yet) scary moment.
@ Theo Thanks bud much appreciated.
@ Vik Indeed I enjoy thinking outside the box, trying new things, hoping to inspire. I honestly do take some care, though please see above, I would say to people to always be safe, I have abused my body for so many years I am probably beyond the point of worrying. And thank you for your kind words, always a pleasure to have some response. And thank you for your concern, I do take the message on board.
@ Graven Glad you like it.
@ Red Again thanks for the concern, I do appreciate it. The Vice is semi attached to a chipboard counter top with a laminate on it, it is not actually a granite top. Thank you I do like the way the trees go, I know they are not everyones cup of tea, but by the time I am finished they are quick and easy and look good enough.
@ EDC Thank you sir, 10 seconds under the blow torch then twist together like you would wire. Recommend gloves and pliers. Do not over heat it.

And finally a little update...

Got a huge bag full of these...

Added a few details and got a water tower...

Added a little paint....




And in position...


Will put up some more pics soon so would appreciate a bump.

Thoughts as always welcome, on all subjects including safety, I do not mind, and it makes us all a bit better. Take care, and see you soon.

That cut, though you showed it a pic or two earlier made me nevertheless flinch seeing the last pic... now there is a story forming in that scene you're creating here...I am curious about how great you will work for that vortex effect that's building up here...

Thanks.

Thinking I might have a hand and arm coming out the other side grabbing for the water tower. Also I will be making the front metal part look like it has been melted off, still glowing red hot.

Well we will see if I am nuts or not. (OK more nuts than normal!)

Using a clear silicone sealant to try an effect......scary.....






Um....thoughts?

That is friggin' awesome! It's a bit trippy and weird, but it has a grittiness that seems to ground it at the same time.

It reminds me of some of the better art for weirdness in the Cursed Earth from old 2000AD strips.

Never disturb the water...who knows what foul evil gets wakeneth...leviathan is rearing...

Great splashy effect you created there...for me totally believable...

How does this clear silicone cure? Will it be totally dry and non sticky afterwards?

What a fantastic piece! The use of silicone is inspired, but I also wonder how hard it will be when cured.

Now showing more Mantic dwarfs, and also some hills!




Painting total as of 10/17/2019: 119 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit and two hills.

Thank you all, really appreciate the feedback.

The silicone is not sticky, but is rubbery. It holds it shape well.

Here you go, still WIP, lots to add yet....



Thanks for looking, thoughts appreciated.
