I'm presuming the storm bolters aren't finished? While the model overall looks great, the storm bolters kind of look unfinished.

Indeed, the weapons haven't been started yet. They will look more finished eventually.
Thanks.

Thanks Comrade. The armour is smoother now.
Also, the greens and greys are done.
The metals and the reds are basecoated.

But as it amuses me at this stage...


Also, as it's actually relevant to this blog (even though I've been posting them in my other blog ), here's a preview of what will become boxes that I will be selling once they are cast up and ready to go.

Thanks Comrade.
Don't you think they look manly with those pink weapons? (They are actually being made red at the moment)

Those are the sides of the boxes, you'll get two of each of the two sides you see here for each box and then two tops / bottoms (these are at the planning stage as they need to fit the sides once built). It'll make sense when I'm nearer completion.

On a related note, the Librarian is still available at a new lower price if anyone is interested: Here

I going to go out and say, you are charging too steep in my opinion. Character models professionally painted typically go for 20-30% more then their value(for a quick sale). That particular model's value is not justifying that cost. If it sells good job! But don't be sad if it doesn't.

The terminators are very nearly finished.

Just the bases and any minor touch-ups (that may become apparent and yes I've done the tip of the power sword already ) are all that is left to do.

I'm thinking of giving them a small sprue plant each on their bases, would that be nice?



I'm not sure everyone will like the power effect on the sword, but I've tried to do it in the same "high contrast" look as the armour.

Any issues that you can see, let me know while I can still fix it.

Well after much deliberation and far too long, I'm calling the Terminators done.
I could spend many more hours touching up the tiniest bits, but it's just not worth the extra time.

So, may I present the Dark Angels Deathwing Terminator Squad Barachiel.




Notice that this is an opportunity to acquire some of my sprue work in the shape of some hand-crafted plants on each of their bases.

I'll post up the ebay link once it's up.

I hope you like them.

Well, since technicaly you're doing commisions now, I reserve the right to be very critical of the tiniest errors. Look closely at the crossed sword emblem on the chainfist armed Terminator. You seem to have some paint bleed onto the fist ermer. Other than that, solid job. Just don't charge an arm and a leg, 0k?

Edit; gripe 2; the green on the terminators exactly matches the plants. what a coincidence

I expect nothing less as I am highly critical of all my work.

Look closely at the crossed sword emblem on the chainfist armed Terminator. You seem to have some paint bleed onto the fist ermer. Other than that, solid job.

You mean around the emblem? That's meant to be there, a dark outline like all the armour plates. It's a dark brown, whereas the emblem is shaded from a bronze through gold to silver so it probably does look just like bleed.

Edit; gripe 2; the green on the terminators exactly matches the plants. what a coincidence

The base green of the plants is actually a different green, but yes the highlights are the same green as is on the other green although the highlights on the plants do go more brown/beige than on the terminators.

The close matching of the green is intentional though as it adds a little more green to largely un-green models. I could make up a more pretentious excuse but that was it really (e.g. it shows that they are upholding the virtues of the "predominantly green" Dark Angels chapter and stepping in-front of their brothers to protect them... )

Just don't charge an arm and a leg, 0k?

My friend sets the prices as he's more in-tune with ebay then I am, but if they don't go then the price will drop as it did for the Librarian.

The ebay listing is up here.

There are two flavours of not so cubic box in the pipeline, so you may get your wish.

For comparison, the one shown here is 26x25x22mm (l, w, h).
The large plain box (ideal for an ark) is 22x22x35mm.
The large box with cross beams is 24x25x35mm.
and I have a small box which is 18x19x23mm.

These are rough measurements from the original carvings and may change a little (+ or - 1mm) by the time I make the final casts.
I have many plans for more boxes (as well as other objects) in the future, but you have to start somewhere.

Thanks LBM.

Been a little quiet on the commission front for a little while as I have been finishing some models for my own army.
I have also been working on the boxes and toilets and should be attempting the casting of them soon.

I asked in my other blog about what people wanted me to make (hence the boxes and toilets) but if anyone here has an idea of something they would like to see (and potentially buy) let me know.
I have a long list of possibilities which I'll add below, so if you see something you like or have something to add, feel free to chime in...
In no particular order (but slightly arranged into groups):
Bottles / Cans (whole and crushed) / Jars / Pots / Pans / Plates / Cups/mugs/tankards / ...
Statues / Vases / Gems / Jewlery / ...
Boxes / Barrels / Baskets / Buckets / Sacks (sandbags) / Chests (square/curved/open/closed) / ...
Tools: e.g. Pickaxe / Wrench / Spade/Shovel / Woodaxe (with chopping block and chopped wood) / Broom/Mop / Anvil (with hammer etc.) / ...
Lamps / Oil-lamp / Candle (lamp/holder/stick) / Electric lamp / Torch (fire / battery) / ...
Plants / Bones / Skulls / Rocks / Rats and other small animals / ...
Fire-pits / Fire-places / Campfire / ...
Bookshelves (and books) / Cupboards / Drawers / Wardrobes / Trapdoors / ...
Weapons racks (and of course weapons) / Shields / Display case / Manacles / Torture devices / ...
Tables / Chairs / Beds / Toilets / Sinks / Baths ...
TVs / Computers / Random electronic boxes / ...

Not all necessarily made as separate entities (possible base decorations) and if something can be made from different materials (wood or metal...), it will be.

Sinks are currently the next thing to look at (to match the toilets), but it'll be nice to get an order to attempt things in...

However, work has started on the next model from Dark Vengeance, the company master;

I've only done the green and bone so far, long way to go yet.

He is such a PITA to paint. I've had mine for almost a year, and I've finished; the second highlight on the cloak.

Yeah, pretty much every bit on him is in the way of another bit when you try to paint...

I have done more on him, namely purples, reds and whites. I may show some more before I move on to the metals.
I'm currently busy with attempting a mould of some toilets... coming soon: Toilets...

So I said I would update before I started the metals, so here is the Chapter Master as he is so far.

I'm about to start on the various metals and then I'll move on to the odds and ends, like the strap for his combi-plasma.
There are bits that need touching up, so he won't look as rough when he's finished.

For those of you not following my other blog, the moulds are coming along and I will soon be casting not only the toilets, but the boxes as well. Keep you eyes peeled for that (but don't hold your breath... ).
