Thought it was time to chuck up another 'Here's what I'm working on at the moment' thread... and just for a change, thought I might even put it in the right forum...

A couple of these have been posted in earlier stages before...


Wazdakka, now with 75% more hand (still needs a thumb):


Added a little more detail on these guys:


And started a new one...


Also working on a couple of commission projects, including this one:


...and this one:



Hopefully, more soon...

Very cool stuff as always Ins... those Scout Termies are truly unique Your sculpted Ork looks great as well... I'm always amazed by people who can really work with green stuff... 'Hmm, It'd be a pain to convert an arm to fit this odd angle... I know! I'll just sculpt a new one.'

They will eventually be counts-as Terminators for a Scout-themed army.

He's smaller than a Warboss, as he's modelled off a Nob Torso... but that feels about right to me. He's a Mek, not a Warboss... and that Battle Cannon has to be compensating for something

Nope, the lascannon is for the Dreadnought...

The Dread's based on a standard Dreadnought Chassis, but is otherwise getting a lot of scratchbuilt parts, yes.


Here's a progress shot on the lascannon, with a regular dread lascannon for comparison:

Yesterday, the house was ridiculously hot... so today I'm working in the 'air conditioned' office:




Here's the Dreadnought's upper arms taking shape:



The twin autocannon 'hand':


And the twin heavy flamer 'hand':

Under the couch

Exo-scouts: Added ends to the inner leg hydraulics, and started adding the padding in the hoods:



And a rough mock-up for the arms:






The scout's hand will be strapped to the inside of the 'elbow' on a rotating pivot to give him full movement. I'm thinking at this point that the 'forearm' is a little too long, making it look a little ungainly and unbalanced. I'll try shortening it up a little, and maybe add another upper arm hydraulic, running along the outside from shoulder to elbow, to aid in sideways lift.

The slide piece on the 'hand' could possibly stand to be a little longer, as well...

Very nice. I agree the arms need to be much shorter though, they're out of proportion to the bodies.
