And so it begins...

The painting of Cassar's (commissioned from a CMON frequenter) awesome sculpt.
Today I've added the brass etchings and some resin detail. If all goes well, I can undercoat the pieces tomorrow.
I'm not too sure about the resin skull on the back though, I might get rid of that...
In general I think it doesn't need that much more in terms of little glued-on tidbits. I think I'm going to add more detailing with self-made decals and freehand.

Hehehe, thanks for cheering me on guys! So... no pressure then. ^^

Well, here's some progress. I mounted and undercoated most parts. The legs are still giving me a headache though. I added a large etched brass aquila, which I pre-bent, but I'm now at attempt numer three and the top-right corner still is popping off. If this last gluing attempt doesn't do it I'll be forced to snap it off completely and rework the bending...
Oh, and I added a pic with the FW marine head, it kinda shows the scale difference.

@SilverMK2: Hehehe, oh , a sculpt like this is worth a few years in Purgatory

@CURNOW: Yup, forthat extra large scope to shoot the xenos from reaaaally far away. I'm thinking to paint the little blood drop on front of the iron sight as a gem/lenz. Kinda like a drop-shaped laser targeter.
For the sculpt WIP, you'll have to pop over to CMON and look for Cassar's threads.

@Lord Scythican: Ahaha, you're not the first to come up with that though. That helmet bay is almost big enough to house a normal sized mini. Knobs & levers is all it needs. ^^

@Carabine: Well, if you want one, just send me a PM and I'll provide the email address of the sculptor. He welcomes commissions.

I've been sidetracked to magnetize some small terminators and doing some work on the other vehicles.
Also, that top-right corner of the Aquila keeps popping of his leg and is driving me crazy!!!!! I think I'll pin that brass into place and hide the pin with a purity seal. Or maybe dab around with superglue activator but then I'd still need to find/buy some first...

Wouldnt it be better to take the aquilla off, bend it to the correct shape and then glue it on again?

Btw. Cant wait to see the rest of the model... this is outstanding work

Long time no update. I've finally managed to fix the brass eagle...

Superglue activator is like..woah!

I should have heeded that advice a long time ago... it's been sticking on since a few weeks now and shows no signs of coming loose.
A traced plasticard-copy would've been a good alternative though. Finally this thing can move forward. Hurrah!

And also I've been working on a side project., the demon in progress... The horns still need drybrushing and I'm thinking of giving the runes a light blue colours, as if glowing, and also give them a healthy coat of glow-in-the-dark paint.

But the LEDS have run into a problem. When first having bought those UV LEDS, the guy at the shop told me they were 1V, so I prepared for a setup of 9 LEDS on a 9V battery on 3 x 3 LEDS wired in series to spread the voltage. But a test setup resulted in no light whatsoever.
Chrome, with his infinite LED wisdom, informed me that they are probably between 3.2 and 3.8V but that much voltage that means I can probably only setup 3 LEDS max on a 9v battery. That would give me nowhere near enough light I fear and the base of the thing won't allow for more batteries...

but I've just been lagging behind on taking pics. I haven't solved the LED issue yet, the lack of space inside the thing is a bit worrying. As the voltage of the LEDS is actually 3,2V or 3,8 V, which means I woud have to cram 2-3 batteries in there... Also, time-wise, I might have to ditch the LEDs altogether and just go for a clean base. In any case the UV paint does shine quite brightly in even low light conditions.

So here's the bust, more or less finished I feel. There's glow-in-the-dark paint on his bulging veins, his eyes, the silver and copper disc, and the glowing runes on his horns. purely from an aesthetic point of view, it might look better with dark inlays for the runes, but the light paint job does work its wonders in the dark.

Well, I've decided to take another route for the LEDS. I bought a second base, painted it up in glossy black and delivered the bust as a gift for which it was intended. I now have some 'over time' to fix the lighting.
I'm thinking it would be best to go for a direct power supply with an adapter.
But being a electronics layman, I have no idea on what hardware to get. I'll need a power adapter/charger for sure, a female receptor and probably some other electronic thingamajig to get it all working.
If anyone has some concrete advice and knowledge on some specific hardware and setup, I'd be much obliged. Even some direct URLs to webshops or ebay would be wolderful! Wehey!
