I have found a picture in my folder of one of my oblits next to a regular marine. I think it gives a good gauge of the scale of those sculpts.

I must say your sculpts are amazing, and even though I'm not that much of a fan of boobs on armour(I've never really liked Slaanesh) your sculpts do really show their Slaaneshy side. Good job!

Thanks.

I have another update for you. This time with actuall recently made content.
I've worked some more on my mixed collection of noise themed weaponry and put them all in one picture. With that most of my noise terminator are close to finished. Their bodys are fine and only the weapons, the backside and some shoulders need some work. I'll be able to finish them in the next few days.


I also need to finish the possessed sculpts that started all this blog. So i did some work on the reptile one. And I'll assemble the snake one soon too as i can't possibly fit a body into the coils. It just doesn't fit.



Finally i worked on one of the slaves and an really old sculpt that was supposed to become a demon princess of some sort before i bought the GW plastic box. I build two demon prince out of the parts and as i didn't see the need of another one i dropped the sculpt. But i started again just for purpose of sculpting.

I had a productive day and as a result i got some more stuff done. Here are the highlights.

My noise terminators are shaping up good. On those two only some minor stuff needs to be done. And the others are not far behind.



I also worked on the slaves. And for gender equality one male one female. You have to imagine that they're pulling at the chains that hold them.


I also did some random stuff. On is the armature of a chaos spawn. This is in fact my second try at a spawn sculpt but the first didn't turn out to my liking.
The other thing is a head that might or might not go onto my vindicator counts as walker. It all depends on how it turns out once finished.

Thanks.
I don't know if i'm the best at making tutorials. I tend to ramble unstructured on things like this.

The lighter hues of greenstuff are a mixture of greenstuff and milliput. It has the advantages of sandability and it takes details better due to it's sharper edges. It has the advantages of both milliput and GS but depending on how much milliput is added the consistency changes. I really like it but it needs some time to get used to.

And it's also cheaper as you get more putty for less money.

I have another update for you. This is in fact only a minor one. I did some smaller work here and there. For example i worked on some possessed arms that will either go to the reptile one or the one with the chainsaw-mouth arm. And i also attached cableing on my noise terminator. As i had to blue-tac the termies together to use gravity to shape the cables realisically i thought, why not make a group shot. And here it is.



Starts to look nice and complete, isn't it?

Slaanesh Chosen Marine Riding a Fiend





Babenhausen, Germany

This time I've worked on my possessed with the goal to finally finish them.

I'll put an original possessed arm on this one. Then I only need to sculpt a head and she'll be finished. And i decided against the chainsaw mouth arm.
I'm not entirely happy how the torso and arm turned out. But i hope that it will look good enough once painted. I just want to finish it.




I have also glued marine and possessed together to be able to sculpt the feets. (This will be funny to paint ... ) The arm i had planed for this turned out to be to short. I originaly had the intention that the possessed right arm was grabbing the shoulder of the marine. Now i need to think what to do. I could create some sort of power fist. Then it should be long enough. Or i could create mutated long fingers or even do something entirely different

What's your opinion? What i should do?




And i also layed the groundwork of the torso of my chaos spawn. My goal is to create a spawn that is in the process of mutating from marine to the bulk a spawn is. So I'll try to add bent, warped and streched pieces of the armor on it. But it is only in it's early stages of sculpting.

DO you use pressmolds at all when you are making those details or are you just sculpting like mad.

Your GS work is amazing. i do a lot of GS work too but nothing of the oder of what you are doing. Great work. I love the way that you are retasking other models. I too am a student and have a limited budget. The lack of funds means that i spend a lot of time converting termis and such for my nurgle army. Love the Slaneesh details. Your doing a great work.

Thank you too. And i don't use pressmolds. At the beginning i experimented with Greenstuff pressmolds but didn't liked the result. The details weren't sharp enough. But i'm thinking of getting some instand mold to start another try at it.
Funny thing is that even if i had money now i'd still stay with sculpting. What started as a way of spending less money is now the main part of my hobby. But i fear that wehn i start working my hobby time won't allow the time models like mine need to finish. (And as i only need my informatic master's thesis I'll probably be in this situation rather soon. And the master's thesis will also eat time once started.)

With what looks like the wrist so far from the Marine's shoulder pad I'd be tempted to do either tentacles, or something similar to a Lictor's flesh hooks were the Possessed snares a victim before ripping them to shreds (think Scorpion in Mortal Kombat - harpoon and upper cut, but in this case its harpoon hand and mutated claw )

Thanks.
As a lazy perfectionist i fear that i'll ruin the models with a bad paintjob(The perfectionist side). And out of fear of ruining them i never started painting my newer works (the lazy side of me ...).
But i plan on starting to paint some of my older primed models shortly after the noise termies and the possessed are done. Then I'll try to do both painting and continue on my newer sculpting work. And as both possessed and termies are nearly done this might lead to me dusting off my paint pots next week.
With that i hopefully build up my painting skills until i trust them enough again to work on my newer stuff. (And the fact that it's still to cold to prime securely is also a reason for staying with the older work.) And i probably fetch my mistreated aobr orks to test some pale skin tones on them.
But don't expect to much. The last time i painted was a year ago and i wasn't that good to begin with.

I like the idea of both the flesh hooks and the tentacles. I think i'll try to build barbed tentacles piercing into and maybe even trough the shoulder guard. The hooks-bundle then can be used as a base to sculpt the hand around and at the same time connect both models. Maybe something similar to lucius the eternals tentacle whip arm.
Thanks for this cool inspiration.

A tired day in doomhammers forge ... I attached an arm on the possessed and the soundbox serving as the powerpack of the bassblaster of my noise termie. At least i can officially say that the noise weapons with the exeption of the basblaster are now ready. With that only some minor stuff needs to be done to finish the termies. Namely i need to think about the melee weapons of them and one needs another helmet and another one some decoration on the back. And for my possessed i only need two heads and finish the barbed tentacle arm and i'm finished.

But i'm so tired ... even too tired to take some photos ...
So i'll just plug in an older pic from The Eternal Siren herself. She was the first entirely scratchbuild project. ... and is still highly unfinished and full off flaws. But i had started working on her again yesterday.
She is supposed to have 4 arms but i have chopped them off as her torso was way to slim and i had to widen it. And i might even rebuild her arms entirely as they were one of the flawed parts of her. The inspiration from her were obviously the forgeworld keeper of secrets but i wanted one with more armor and also didn't want to spent that much money.



And i also found this bad boy the other day in our old toybox. And old transformers toy tank with superheavy potential. A little grimdark-y-fied and a gun swap and he could probably be a good shadowsword as support for my scratchbuild baneblade.

This is the current result of the barbed tentacle idea. It turned out larger than i imagined it so I'll have to think how to add the hand. (or don't add a hand at all)



Sometimes i feal stupid. In my wild sculpting craze i never though about using actual bits as basis for sculpting works ...
Well i build this arm as replacement for the chainsword mouth arm and will sculpt the rest around it.



And this is the current shape of my second spawn,



And this is the spawn i already did. It isn't a bad sculpt but it didn't turn out like i had planed. I don't like the head and the whole bulk of the model. The original idea was just one massive arm of bulging muscles. But i overdid the whole muscles on the model and both the second arm and legs where to long and the torso to wide. I'll still paint it up in the future and might even use it but it will never be truely loved.

Phew, this thread continues to be full of amazing stuff -- actually, it's actually rather challenging to stay on top of it all, given the frequency of your updates So I'm sorry if this turns out to be a rather long reply:

Terminators:

The additions to these are simply great! Loving the sculpted, stylised maws for the helmets. The shock weapons are also ace!

Scratchbuilt Obliterators/Mutilators

While some of the earlier sculpts seem a little awkward in places (plus I am not totally sold on some of the heads), you have managed to really make these look special. My favourites are the model with the Plasmacannon and the one with the Havoc Launcher fused into its flesh.

Marines/Possessed

These are uniformly excellent! I really like the "flesh hooks" you added to the reptilian model and probably wouldn't add an additional hand -- after all, the hooks nicely represent how the Possessed has mutated to better fit his fighting style.

Spawn

The WIP one is already looking quite promising. As for the one you're not all that fond of, I'd really like to make a stand for this guy (girl?!), because I think the body is truly fantastic, just what I'd consider a fallen champion of Slaanesh to look like: All the grace and sinuousness have been lost to spawdom in favor of brute strength. I also think that the body is a fantastic sculpt. The only thing really letting the model down, as far as I am concerned, is the head, since it makes the spawn look like a fat woman suffering from constipation (sorry for the graphic image, but that's the impression I got). I think the model would be instantly improved by a hundred percent if you replaced the head with something different -- either a readymade part, from a steed of Slaanesh for example, or something more in line with the classic Keeper of Secrets?

Here's an idea: Since the Eternal Siren is so fond of the female form, why not have the spawn be male - or at least "male-ish" - in appearance? That would nicely represent their "failings" on a whole new level. Plus it would be a nice way to contrast the lithe forms of the more female Marines and Possessed against the clunkiness and ungainlyness of the male spawn.


Oh, and regarding the painting: I wasn't trying to imply your paintjobs were horrible or anything. Quite the opposite, in fact: It looks like you've got the brush control necessary for fine accents and all that. I only wanted to suggest sticking to a more limited palette of colours, since the additional spot colours (red and blue in this case) all over the models were really stealing the colour scheme's thunder, even though they may have been justified from a background perspective. So, like I previously said, I'd really keep it down to: flesh colour, purple, gold, silver (for the weapons) and a fairly neutral colour (grey or bluish grey) for the cloth etc. You'll be amazed how much focus that will add to your models!

Sheesh, look at me going on! Anyway, hope this helps!

Keep up the amazing work!

The motto of todays update is: "Heads! Heads everywhere."

You might recongnize the horned one in the middle as one head that i did earlier but turned out to small. I think now it looks useable. And i like the two on the right. I even tried to pressmold a neckpart for easier assembly and neck sculpting. Worked better than expected and I'll probably do this more often. Not al are finished but i'm getting better with heads. ( to myself)


I also put heads on two of my scratchbuild ladies and layed the groundwork for the heads of the others with some random leftover putty.


I officially put one noise terminator in the finished models pile. (The axe one) I didn't take a picture as the group shot shows all the interesting details already. Now i have to finish 3 backs and 1 helmet and the termies are all done.

Well the spawn already has breasts so male is out of the question. And we agree that the head is probably the biggest letdown. The elongated head of a steed or classic keeper is a good idea. Another bit for my next bit-order.

 KrautScientist wrote:

...

I never understood it that way. Quite the opposite. My biggest problem is with details. I often loose myself in them and at the end the model might look "off" because the details i did doesn't add up but contradict each other. And the opposite happens too. I just start with the idea of some details but i never flesh out the piece as a whole and that leaves me with lot of empty space that i don't know how to fill. This is true for both my painting and my sculpting/conversions.

 KrautScientist wrote:
Sheesh, look at me going on! Anyway, hope this helps!

You definitely helped. It is always nice to hear praise but you can only improve if get the "bad stuff" pointed out for you. And you not only did that but came up with ways to improve and alternate ideas to play with. back to you.

Most of it is milliput/GS mixture of different rations. The yellow stuff is pure milliput standard and every shade from yellow up to pure green is the mentioned mixture. The brown sculpts are made from fimo, an oven backing clay i experimented with. There is probably a piece of actal brown stuff in there(the brown blade for example) but i abbandoned it very fast because i think that there is something in it that my skin don't like.

And even more head related updates. I've put a head and arm on this possessed. Now i only need some gap closing and a shoulder and she is finished.


And two of my slaanesh cultists got a face now too.


And here is a small update on the state of the noise marine weapons. They also getting closer and closer to finish. But as i work only irregulary on them i can't say how long they need to finish.


And this is probably the biggest update. The energy pack is build, the cabling is mostly finished and only some minor details on the weapon needs work. And i need to decide what to do with the power fist.
