would love to see more angles on the sculpted head from your daughter...to really appreciate it...but from what i see...looks excellent!

that commissar stand in looks as if it could use a NSFW tag...even tho she is fully clothed

and the new scene looks as if it will be quite a dark one...if these body already appear to be lying at the right spot...

Nice job on the Comm'.
Do you have colour shapers (silicone-tipped thingys) for putty work? They may help get a smoother finish at the first attempt, her clothing is a little too worn/tattered for her rank, I feel.

And wow. Great job little Rhi'.

I don't envy your attempts to cast it, with all those teeth going in all directions.

If you could make the right hand with a pistol, that would work to fit, and a sword for the left hand? seems right for a commissar, power sword and pistol of choice.

Thank you all for the comments, very much appreciated.

@ Tim 121RVC , thank you sir, enjoyed doing it, probably be the last time I try that hard though.

So did a bit more to the scene....


This has been done for a while, been a bit out of it for a few days.

Started on some bodies to fill the space....


Oh and over on Dave's thread he was showing off a beautiful paint brush stand, gave me a little inspiration, not in the same league as his but...




And this is his just for comparison...

Anyways thanks for dropping by, see you all soon.

Thanks guys. Thinking about perfecting it and sending as gifts to you for xmas! hehe.

So had a bit of a day, but some good was my beloved went in to local GW and got me some supplies. Also nipped to Hobbycraft and got a couple nice treats, more on that in a mo, first up....





All a bit placed at mo, still lots to do, but going to hammer it over next day or so.

Also good news I won the last round of the LoER comp, with the Waagh! Tower, so up to me for the next round.

And lastly supply drop...





So happy chap in the end. Trying to get my mojo on, thoughts as always welcome.

first congratz for the very well deserved win matey! you stomped the competition literally! i never invested the amount of time you had put into the waagh tower...in my dice tower...so that alone was a winning argument! (not even daring speaking about the classy paintjob you did an...well all^^)

that scene now...this looks as a soon to be slaughterfest...poor imps...they´ll get cheesed (takes even longer then getting creamed^^)

do i see that right? you got a wet palette?...upping the game once again^^

i recently got me a gravity feed AB pistol...kind of an early Christmas gift^^

as for the skull beads...these need a scale comparrision shot please as i have been eyeing something llike these for quite some time...never acting on my urges/ideas as i was unsure about scale...

hurry up mate... my mojo is currently very low...i am mostly gaming these days at stupid games...so a new cool theme for a comp will have me sitting at attention in no time^^...

mind blowing action scene! i often wonder if there is no a place for us to work in museum or something like that making awesome dioramas for a living....that would be something i would really love to do...*sighs*(oone small suggestion...i find the idea that the commissar holds the sword like that a bit odd...the edge should face towards the enemy not downwards?...it´s now like...:"back down or you feel the flat of my sword...!")

but i like all the different facial expressions of the catachans... very good choice, and i would love to see a shot where you show what the guardsmen are seeing...to apreciate the front sides of yon orks^^


as for the beads... never thought about that use...i was expecting a headswap use...but now these beads ake way more sense and are totally fitting scale!!! just love the winged skull emblem and the skullbase/ wall section is awesome too!!! i think i need to try that too...and honestly... you can get these beads in a zillion bags for rather cheapo money....so that goes to my shopping list^^


have you decided upon a theme yet... i a tingling with anticipation...

You know Cam, I really like the fact that in your diorama the commissar is stepping up for the dirty work. You don't see that depicted very often & it is refreshing. Beautiful work. Creative, dynamic, expertly executed. Another masterpiece.

Those beads look great, I could see a few Khorne totem poles being made out of them.

I too really like the commissar stepping up , but I see him all of a sudden changing into the C'tan sword wielding assassin and stomping all the orcs........then telling the boys...."I'm sorry you had to see that "

Not where I should be

LOL Thank you guys, it was just one of those things in my head to do, got another couple yet, but first, I want to get myself back on track, back to productive and pushing boundaries.

Reasoning (spoilered as personal junk, but for the few wonderful people that follow my thread )
Spoiler:


Brain Fart, simple as that really, this has been a hell of a year for many of us, and I have followed and cared deeply about many of you my friends, if nothing else you have shown me that I am not alone in suffering, and many of you have had way worse years than me. But as I try to explain irl, when you are up to your neck in gak, seeing someone drowning 20 feet away does not help your situation, especially when it is a friend, someone you care about. Most of my problems are work based compounded by family and friends ill or dying. Work wise, I have been doing 3 1/2 peoples jobs for over six months, including taking on a whole area I have little experience of. I have a very responsible job and the additional workload has even more responsibility (millions of pounds at my finger tips) I have had zero training and no support. I work on average a 65 hour week With a 1 hour (50 miles) commute either side, each day. End result I got a bit down. Went to the docs and currently signed off with stress/ depression, basically broke down in doctors, did not realise just how low I was. Now like I say so many people have bad stuff happening that far outweighs my crap, but I am struggling, trying to motivate myself is mega right now, and my wonderful Dakka has even messed me up, I got all upset and frustrated, spat me dummy and everything. Still tried to push on though, and you few have been why I am still here and still willing to push to try. I only have Dakka in my life, sad I know, and OK I have a family (wife and 3 great kids) but the place I have gone too is not a place for them to follow, and they cannot really help, apart from being wonderful, which they manage effortlessly. I don't do anything else, work, eat, sleep and Dakka. It's the first thing I check on my phone in the morning, it's the last thing I check at night, how sad am I!
But the point is, I want to start over, drag myself out of this, and Dakka Dakka is my drug of choice. The zen of riveting, the deep trance of perfecting painting, I need these to give me goals and to give me something to be proud of in this crappy world.
Now please except my apologies for this brain fart, just hope it helps to explain my nonsense over the last few months, please stay with me, I need you.



So, back to basics, I have a million models, but which one to do which will be basic and straight forward and a challenge enough to be proud of in the end.....

Lets try this...


Track sections, with my usual extra armour mods on the top...



Then stuck the hull together...and added a couple details, still an ongoing process here, more to be added....



OK bit of fluffy stuff on what I am thinking here, going for a close quarters jungle tank, going to have 3 heavy flamers (1 x hull, 2 x sponson) the Exterminator Autocannon, and a heavy stubber pintle mounted. Not sure this is allowed, or really any good, but the idea is a front line point of contact armoured firestorm, you want to get rid of a bug problem .....flamethrower that nid. Also good against orks. It's the kind of thing I see them using in jungle terrain or built up areas, no real line of sight, close encounters and it needs to be tough as nails to fend off those hordes. Going to do a custom dozer blade as well I think. You know keep it simple to ease myself in here.

Replies...
@ Theo and Gits, thanks yes that was the thinking really, Commisars are badass in my head, not very nice in general, but badass all the same.
@ stonned Thanks bud, much appreciated.
@ Vik, sword is awkward, think I may have to move it arounnd, also got to nail down this whole power effect thing. Beads were a couple pound at Hobby craft, easy enough to cut and use, they are a very hard plastic. And I will have something up, struggling with a theme at moment, soon promise.
@ EDC Thank you and yes, these boys need to pray shee is as badass as she looks.
@WP Thanks bud, she is a conversion from a Sedition Wars character model, adde a little GS jacket and cap is all really.


Well thank you for stopping by and I really appreciate your comments, need to get this done and be happy with it, then think I need to do some orks....

Now take a well deserved victory lap, sir. Nice work on the LoER.

As far as projects go, more grim dark , perhaps not so good right now. Pick a project that is bright and shiny. This time of year it's up and at work before the sun has risen and home after it has set. Very dreary. I can imagine it is worse where you are, being at a much higher latitude, and thus having even shorter days.

Ah, full spectrum daylight bulbs, the ones with the high CRI. Alzo is company that makes them around here. No idea about the UK. Great for the hobby--less eyestrain and truer looking colors when painting etc. Makes things a bit cheerier too. Get something with a CRI (Color Render Index) of at least 90. 15 Watts will do for most things. The higher wattage bulbs can have a distracting buzz sometimes.

Go for something modern too, project-wise, after the tank, like that land rover you did a while back. That was really sweet work. No ruins either.

Those brick walls in the diorama. Wow. You really nailed 'em. They are what most impress me.

Chin up bud. We are all here for your awesome work. Keep entertaining us and hopefully things come good. Having monkeyed around with the leman russ in the past yours is looking awesome. The auto cannons are spectacularly awesome in game and three heavy flamers is crazy up close. Just watch them getting into close combat.

Tank is looking great, all the little extras work out wonderfully.

I think that safety shield around the heavy stubbed would be a great spot for some military graffiti, even if it's just a picture. ( I see a colorful parrot on there since it's a jungle world and would draw the eye of the opponent and maybe cause a dear in the headlights situation as the gunner cuts them down ).

Glad you've gotten help from a doctor Sir, it was just proven that you cannot "Fake it till you make it", so carve yourself some "Me" time every day. I know the hours and the workload, I'm there right with you (except drive time), I'm here for you if you need to vent .
