Not much to show from me, other than this picture. I tried a different approach on a female/ Sororita terminator style armor.
I'm not perfectly happy with it. The hips are to wide and putting arms on it it rather problematic. Also the back looks a bit uneven.
What do you think?





I like it, it was instantly recognizable as Terminator armor for me. I don't think it looks bad at all. Its supposed to be big armor. You want it to shrug off all the things that normal troops can't.

The terminator armour looks pretty nice! Never thought about female terminators...(terminatrix?terminatress? )
Maybe you can "lift" the torso section a little bit. I think, she looks a little bit stubby around the hips, because her breast armour is so close to her hips.

Anyways, this is great thread! Keep up the good work!

Great sculpting again - nice to see SOB getting some dynamic poses as the general style of them cries out for it.

Not sure I'm totally sold on the SOB terminators but it is nice to see some different unit styles for the,.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers,

Awesome work as always Doom. The sister was instantly recognizable as a termi, but I have to agree that the hips do seem abit wide. What you might be able to do is thin out the thighs while leaving a large boots/greaves. This would give her the look of a stable base to hold up the top heavy termi suit. To compensate for the thinned out thighs you could run a external piston along the outside length of the thigh to give the feel of the extra support.

Also with a thinned out thigh the hip plates might look more like a "armored skirt" with the extra room. Termi + skirt x boob armor = Girly SoB termies, I'm pretty sure that's how math works. I should probably go to sleep. Anyway, hope that helps in some way, always love being able to check dakka and seem your amazing ideas take shape, serious talent, mad respect for you.

Thank you guys.

I haven't done much for my sisters lately. But once I'm done with my current chas projects I think the sisters are back on the list.

And I tried a second attempt at the terminator, but its really early. I somehow tried to keep up somewhat reaistic propotions but now the legs look really stubby. I think I have to do it like GW and create unrealistic terminator armor. Otherwise it won't look like propper termi armor.

imo I don't see a reason to make the terminators "girly" at all.
As long as they fit within the SoB aesthetic.
I mean, they are supposedly wearing tank-like armour.

Just remember man. It just has to look like someone is inside it controlling it. Then its totally armor.

The girly termies was a joke =P. Hey just do what feels right Doom, your sculpts are wonderful and I'm for one excited to see how you tackle the problem your having.

After staring at the sculpt i found what was putting me off, it's the Madonna titty twisters up front. They seem too much like they were bolted on, and remind me of medieval helmets.

I think the model would be better suited with more of a sculpted buxom. Y'know, more like a flowing, curved front plate hinting at the feminine form, rather than two pressure hatches for breast feeding.

Yea, Doomhammer is likely to have his own company started by the time the TTG KS even finishes shipping, much less by the time the Sisters of Eternal Mercy KS is finished.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Looking at the termi armor again, two thinks occurred to me:

1: The helmet touching the top of the arc makes her neck/head look too long. If it was set down a bit so that the eyes look straight out and there is clearance there the distance between the breast cups and eyes won't look too long perhaps.

2: To add some length to the legs and avoid them looking too stubby, maybe add some lifts to the boots. That will allow for a reasonable hip and knee placement but longer legs in general. I did that with some true scale marines I was futzing around with for a while and it along with a spacer in the thigh seemed to be the best bet for length that didn't make them look like they had super model proportions, or like they were built like the AOL man.
