What makes the Space Wolf Armored Rhino panels particularly Wolfy? They look great, and I initially thought they might be your predator parts, but .. where is the fang, wolfskull etc.. that indicated Wolves in Spppaaaaaccce?

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

Order of St Ursula (Sisters of Battle): W-2, L-1, T-1
Get of Freki (Space Wolves): W-3, L-1, T-1
Hive Fleet Portentosa (Nids/Stealers): W-6, L-4, T-0
Omega Marines (vanilla Space Marine): W-1, L-6, T-2

Im guessing they used the mini for the SW Primarch as inspiration. (what the hell was that guys name?)
Thats what I thought of as soon as I seen those. I think those would look great on any rhino personally. Nice work

The "IX" looks a bit off- not centered. Might have to pinch the perspective to fit the triangle motive.

Space Wolf Shield looks too busy- too many details drags my eyes all over the place so I don't know what I'm looking at; it almost looks organic. Consider some larger flat/empty spaces as these will make your busy areas even more interesting. Some of the areas do not look tight/smooth.

The shot of the rhino front armor makes the salamander face look like it's giggling. The bar under the winds is not a consistent height- it's loses volume (shrinks) on the left side.

The land raider armor is 7 kinds of awesome.

I agree with the above. The Space Wolf shield is too busy. Please keep the round viking shield concept you posted before. That is awesome. The mug standard is great just do it on the rounded shield.

When in doubt.........Duck!

Lastly, the writing on the upper left part of the inside of the shield does not look like runes. There's not much payoff to have fine details on the inside of the shield since it's going to be held (mostly) close to the body.

Suggestion for the shield: Notice how a lot of the clutter in the Space Wolf figures is clustered around the center of the figure? The terminators for example- most of the new stuff goes from the top of their head, through their groin with a smattering here/there outside of it. Even with all this clutter, there are still large areas of flat empty plates on the armor. This order might be nice to carry through the shield, since the eye like following similar patterns. Clutter also works well when it's a different texture than the majority of it's surroundings, such as fur or bone next to plate.

Wolf Shield is still a Work in Progress, we will be making a few changes.

The Wolf Rhino Armor is more a canvas to be sculpted on. I do think people may want to buy it as is, but we are going to use it to do many different rhino kits on, the current one to be done is Wolves as soon as I get this master molded.

Number pads. I tried my best, its very difficult to get the detail you want at that level. I think once its molded and painted there wont be any issues as unless you are 2 inches away the detail is great.

Here are more shots of the Salamander Land Raider








Awesome?

How do you GS people do that? I see the picture in my head, but it looks like I used the whole can of play doh when I threw with it.
That landraider looks really cool man. Specially the crossed hammers. Nice work

Hi there, I´m Tom, Nick and I own Chapterhouse and I´m the sculptor.
Thought its about time I dont just sit in a basement over a piece of greenstuff but come out and say hi and answer criticism etc about the greens.

The rhino segemented armour was an idea of mine to get some form of pre heresy looking rhino conversion kit that is very generic and also to use as a template for further sculpted addons.
I´ll be remaking it not only to be as it is but also with "iron wolf" symbols added on it and dragon symbols as well. If you guys like them enough I´ll most surely remake them into even more variations.

The wolf shield I´m workign on at the moment is a bit if a "celtic" inspired piece that can and will be remade into wolf iconography as well as dragon and other kinds.
Right not I´m battling with the attempts to have it look similar all over/around and with this scale its really a question of patience and well rested eyes.

Here is a WIP, I´m trying to get it as close to the actual art it is based on as possible.


f you guys have questions, requests, praise or hate to send dont hesitate to ask Nick or myself, I´ll try to pop in here now and then and give updates if possible.

Thanks

I like the way the Space Wolf stuff is coming along, especially that shield above my post. However, the Salamander stuff is very very cool. How soon do you guys plan on distributing that stuff and any idea on a price tag?

Well you can buy them direct from www.chapterhousestudios.com.

I am trying to get a distributor, but they are a bit hard to break into. We do work with stores directly and try to offer the stores a competitive price to get them to stock.

The only other one I can think of (when I was selling comics and games) was: http://www.acdd.com/ The others that I worked with were eaten by Alliance.

Other idea would be to do ebay auctions for, say, a complete set of Salamander rhino armor, or a complete set of something. Gets your name out there and will sell. Nothing like advertising that pays you back.

A suggestion: Take the 1/4 circle of knotwork you already have and make a mold of it, with a 'shiplap' section under the boss. Then, you can just place four of them on the outer rim of the shield, and add details to the center, and then make that your master. Not sure if this is feasible, but with as good as the first quarter section looks, it's be a shame if the piece gets scrapped due to inconsistencies.

Well I actually already did that but the rubber makes for more problems.
If you press to light there will not be enough detail transferred, if you press to hard, the greenstuff will be "smeared" and the "copy" will be significantly wider.
Plus its almost impossible to gauge the correct thickness of the copy so this is a non can do.

It´ll have to be a battle of patience and scalpel it seems

Oh well, nothing is ever easy. Silly of me to forget that. GL. I'm really gunning for you on the round shields, the concept art is one of the coolest things for 40K I've ever seen.

Love the LR armour and the celtic theme going on. Will there be more Blood Ravens stuff produced as well as it's one of the chapters I'm thinking of getting some models together to do since the DA are unplayable now.

We try, but the tough part is getting our name out there!

I dont want to be an expensive FW wannabe if we can help it, I try to keep the prices where we can make a good profit without raping the customers. That is why I am a big fan of pewter, cheaper then resin for labor (which is a big deal, we use a USA manufacturer, not chinese).

We will be dumping alot of money this week into molds, 8 new Pewter Molds (shoulder pads, weapons and Fire Braziers, shields) and 3 new Resin Molds (Land Raider, and 2 Rhino kits).

I would love to get another sculptor on the staff to concentrate on IG. As it is I have a buddy, who is working on a new Storm Trooper model in 3D design, we will see how that turns out.

Your doing all this without GW's permission? Theres pages of legal stuff on the GW website saying that you can't produce modification kits for their ranges without their approval. How did you manage to get around this?
