I have been working on this beasty for somewhere around two months now. The whole project has been a lot of fun, and I have gained a lot of experience through it. There are a few details that I might add, but priming this beast is my main goal. I am planning on using Krylon white primer, but I have to find it first .

Comments and Criticisms are welcome. I ran into some problems with the GS because of the amount of time I had to work with it. In the future I plan to skip GS nearly entirely, and mainly use something like Fimo and Milliput.

The torso is a bit plain, but I have magnetized pretty much everything so I can modify the whole beast as I see fit.

I was planning on adding a bit of barnacle-like sores on the torso, if I get more responses supporting that I will go ahead and do it. All in all I would hope to take care of any plain-texture with some fancy painting/blending to make the skin have an elastic frog-skin like look.

I would appreciate advice on priming and painting due to my lack of experience in this field. My original idea is to make the skin like necrotic pig skin with the stretchiness of frog skin. Recently I started thinking about painting the skin powdered-light blue, so the metallic and gore can really have some table-pop. I am not sure how a cream would work with intense reds and purples (for the gore) but I have seen a few paint-jobs that seem to have worked quite well. The other thing that crossed my mind is making it look albino, with a huge amount of red used in my painting to give some serious contrast and depth to the skin.

Tips on making and painting gore are appreciated as well. I was thinking of experimenting with paint mixed with varnish and some grit to get a really gooey texture on the chainsaw.

Yea I echo the first poster's comments and I didn't read it before examining the pics.

Definitely an impressive model but since the rest of it has a bunch of detail the torso looks plain by comparison. But like you mentioned, the right paint job does wonders. Great work!

If I felt like being totally mad, I could magnetize some texture so the torso can continue to be a nice base for multiple styles.

If I add a bunch of texture I am worried that it will limit the styles that I can choose to make for new pieces in the future. At the end of this models design career I would hope to have at least three options for every attachment, all varied in style and intent. The first concept to cross my mind would be a master-blaster style head. Like a dome of some kind filled with water, housing a brain with a bunch of wires and etc... etc...

The sheer size of this thing is pretty awesome, I thought it was about the size of a dreadnought or something and then you showed it next to a marine . If you can paint this thing up nicely and add some more details/etc to make the skin not look so flat, this could be really amazing for something homemade.

Also, for the teeth, could you maybe make a full ring of the outer teeth around the whole mouth sorta like the worms in Dune ?

If you click the link in my siggie you can take a look through the BLOG, I am planning on making one mouth in the style that you mentioned. My materials are quite limited, and my workspace is as well. After a bit of thought I decided that I would just put this mouth together for now so I could start painting soon.

Any ideas on the paint-job? Speak up Dakka, I would like to hear what you have to say.

Oh man that's amazing, I throw my support in for the barnacle-sores though, it would give it some visual interest.

I think the details would be better comming from muscle / sinew rather than additional barnacles . Mainlyl to help accentuate the bulk and the raw force behind the monster.

( i know chaos warp creatures doesnt have to make sense , but it'll raise the dramatic effect through the roof )

I think that Luna is right, I have been trying out some placement for the barnacle-sores and it just looks a bit odd.

What I may do is add a few sores after adding some definition to the chest in particular.

I suggest build some muscle around the right arm area / arm pit / towards chest .

and then some raised sinew between the index finger and the thumb.

I am pretty sure I understand what you are talking about Luna. I was considering making it a bit more flabby, but muscle would probably look a lot better.

The arm-pit area is going to be a bit tricky for me to figure out, but I think I will add the changes to the arm so the torso can still take different styles of right arms.

After a bit of brain-boxing, I think I will just clean the left chest and arm-pit area up a bit. I am planning on making a whole lot of other pieces for this, and I am not the biggest fan of how the hand turned out. A little too big, but enough to bug me, which is kinda cool given the style of the sculpt.

At this point I will just make a few minor adjustments, and take all of the input into consideration when making alternate pieces. Given my mediocre painting skills I may even see if someone else who is more experienced can paint it, usually how display pieces are done at any rate.

I do not have plans to be a master painter, but sculpting (and focused 3-d art in general) is my life passion.

What do people think about how I should paint this beast? What color scheme could work well?

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the chain-saw arm, but the rest looks really good to me.

I can't wait until you paint it.

for paint.....buy a pumpkin, carve it up, let it sit a week or two, use the explosion of colorful pumpkiny rot as inspiration.

Hmm... I think you may have an idea there GL.

If I get a pumpkin early... GODDAMIT WREX, get that freaking rotten vegetable out of the yard...

Hmm... interesting take on the situation room-mate, but you fail to see the true depth of my plan. Let me explain, and in ludicrous detail

*SMAKK*

Oh, okay then... never mind, fine, and a pouty face... rotten kiwis are the answer to this problem. Yes, I can see it now!
