Not where I should be

Well season greetings to anyone I missed, nearly over now, such an interuption. Should get back to it soon.

@ Theo Indeed, thinking chains and bodies being dragged behind, not sure yet. My boy wants it to be purple, so got to draw heavily from Nerdfests amazing works and see if I can get purple skin looking good.

@ Shas Oh yeah, trying this sculpting mallarky. Not very good yet but getting there. "Skirt" was the most difficult.Just impossible to get it to hold the shape I wanted. Should have made a former I guess, might have stood a chance.

Will try and get some pics up tomorrow of progress for now here's what I got for Christmas.



So I have had to reorganize my paints.....(not all just the onesI use most.)



Oh and THIS IS SO COOOOOOOOL........my prize arrived just before Christmas.



It is brilliantly made and so gorgeous. It does give me a real big problem now though. What do I do with it? To do it justice I have to complete the titan, and take my time doing it too. But my mad orky mek want soooooo desperately to use it for an Orky looted superheavy silly tanky thing, but that feels really bad, The work that has been put in to this it would be criminal to do that.

Thank you sooo much hk1x1 it is beautiful. I can't believe you have given this away.

I will be starting up the next League Terrain Competition soon, I have some idea's and I want to bounce them around a bit first, but it will be up for the new year.

Thanks for looking, and please feel free to leave c&c.

Catching up on my Sub'd list.
Nice haul of new shinies.

Good work on the daemon prince(ss ).
The back and the muscles are nicely done and look part of the model now it's the same colour.

The skirt could have been smoother in places (I can see tool marks when I'm zoomed in) and this will really show up when you paint it.
but it is a really good effort, cloth is surprisingly difficult to sculpt (I know, you saw how much I moaned when I was doing the sniper's cloak).

You can add creases and folds after the putty is dry by adding a sausage of putty and smoothing the edges onto the surface.

also, look for images of real cloaks/skirts that are in a similar pose to your model and study where the folds are and then replicate that with a little exaggeration. Also finding pictures of models with similar cloth/pose are good to see how much exaggeration to do and where to do it.

Keep at it (I'm not in any hurry to sculpt cloth again so I respect your efforts).

Not to keep picking faults (but you did ask ), but the tail is a bit too uniform in thickness along it's length and the tip isn't as pointy as I'd have liked (but that's up to you). Also the crease could do with being smoothed.

Good work though.

More pics.

@ DrH Thank you. Pulled the tail off and working on another as we speak.

@ Dave Yes they are a sweet haul of lovely paints, couple of doubles, but they are popular paints for me anyway. These are very good paints.

Ok bit more done here.

Firstly my entry for Bebops comp, Just about the final shots I think, but please cross your beady eyes across them and see if I missed anything.







and next up is the base for the cross dressing daemon.



Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I love how you used that zinge sprue part for your junk pile...!

the guardsman looks very good, love those shoulderpads, but I think the green trimmings on the coat is a bit too strong in hue?

as for the demon... looking forward to the painted model...the base is awesome as hell...

and then...that prize... totally earned...but I would suggest you really go the extra mile and make yourself your own , very own titan... you really know you want to... no messing with looting and kitbashing here...pretty please^^...or to put it in another way...congratz mate...a very well deserved win mister!

Got to admit i agree with Viktor von Domm build your own Titan!! the Warhound is a great looking machine.. and you have an epic starting block!!

it would take me about a year to even make a start on it... but i have faith in you! hehe!

I'm pleased to see the Titan arrived in one piece, and If you do decide to build the rest of it, let me know,
as I still have all the template's, including ones for the legs and weapons.

Although It would be interesting to see what an Ork Mek might do, if he ever got hold of one .

whatever you choose to do with it, I'm sure it will look great either way.

@Dave It is a great model, I am no officionado on these things but it is an older model I gather they have changed some what.

@Gitsplitta No I am afraid not, I got them from this guy, check out his blog, you will love it. I bought the T's and won the tank in a raffle. URL below.

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/537679.page

And so here is my entry, wish I could do better, but will see if I have time for a second entry.






Good luck everyone, the entries I have seen so far are outstanding, so this looks like being a brilliant competition. (I do not include mine in this.)

Would love to have your thoughts guys and dolls.

"Tumble weed skips by!"

So please could I have your thoughts on this fellow.




Question: what colour "skirt" should he have. It was going to originally be made from human "skin". But if I start that it clashes terribly with the purple. Just don't know.

Also, long way from finished andis very messy at the moment, but what do we think of the skin tone at present?

Guardsman s looking awesome!
Skirt for the Daemon, normally they do wear black with gaudy runes, but if going for Slaanesh, the more loudly and insanely gaudy and bright, the better!

as for the demon prince... due to the purple I feel a strong World of warcraft vibe... I think something for the skirt like green and gold would be nice... maybe you could be really bold and try to do some tartan?

Happy New Year Cam.

The Guardsman looks great and should do well in the competition.

As for His-Purple-i-ness... Good job on the new tail.

As the purple is quite bright, the skirt should probably be a dark colour so that he doesn't end up too cartoony. Unless he is meant to be Slaanesh, in which case bright is the way to go traditionally (as far as I know, not that up on the actual chaos side of 40k).

You've got yellow on the rest of him (yellow and purple being good friends), so you can't use that on the skirt.

Green would work if it was going to be bright. A dark green wouldn't really fit the model as it's a bit too camo'-like and that's not a Daemon thing.
Bright green and purple is also the colours of probably the most evil character ever:
Spoiler:



Blue can work well with purple, but does bring out the blueness in the purple.
Red does the opposite and makes purple look redder.
As the purple you have there seems quite "red" then you probably don't want any more red and I would go with a deep, rich blue.

Try out a few colours/shades next to your purple and see what fits best before you paint.

Not where I should be

Hi Guys, thank you for the comments, been very busy IRL, sudden change of jobs, Christmas, New Year, helping a friend with their year end accounts for last 2 years, fixing another friends broken floor, about to do a full shop fit on another friends place, and just to top it off found damp in the boys bedroom so major fix it and move around in there. I am trying to get a little time on my models and vaguely keeping up with your excellent works on your blogs.

So what little time I have got modelling I got the bug for a bit of orky action so over on my orkishness blog I created this so far.

Job wise, too sordid an affair to be able to speak freely. (Not really that big a deal, honest.)

And the tracks have to be wide because of the height of the thing. (it's a Camkierhi take on the old Scorcher.)
