Tell you what Gits, I'll make you a Beaky with bolter and I'll send over one of my own Marines with paint (I'll leave the base blank and unattached)
They are based around the Storm Barons around about the time they became traitors, so he might be a tiny bit Chaosy, but not OTT


Apologies for the Double post, neither of them decided to show!

It's a daunting task to build a figure for one of the best builders you know, but here is my best attempt and something unique and interesting. Had to do major surgery on the cables to get the pose to work out right, then resupply with my own.

It may be the picture but is there a hair trapped in where the cable meets the cannon?

It may just be the photo, but his head looks like it's riding a little too high up at the moment as I can see a lot of neck. Trimming down the neck bobble might help that one... or ignoring me. Either works

There's also a mold line on the outside of his right leg that needs dealing with too. Other than that... great work as always!

And all three together:

Mottos:
Pod I: MELIUS TARDE QUAM NONQUAM (Better late than never) - sternguard and MoTF
Pod II: AUT VINCERE AUT MORI (Either conquer or die) - Iron Clad Dreadnought
Pod III: IN HOC SIGNO VINCES (In this sign you will be victorious) - Rifleman Dreadnought

Two Tactical Squads for Razorbacks, most built by whalemusic360:


MoTF, still pretty WIP but this is how much was done for Adepticon:

@endtrans... I trimmed it a bit already, though I just might not be used to how helmets sit in the more modern armor, been working with the Mark 6 stuff for so long. I'll give it another look.

You know logg_frogg, I've tried army pictures several times now and they all look terrible, that's why there's none in the summary even though there were several over this last period. I'll try again when I get the second sergeant done, but I don't hold out much hope that it'll look any better than the rest.

@RR: Not yet, it's one of the "tidying up" things I need to do with the Adepticon force.

Thank you sir! Yeah, still haven't had a chance to really use all his fine work on a vanguard... but the time will come, sooner rather than later!

whalemusic360 wrote:I like it! Lots of copy paste in there Is the hole in the front fin thing going to get something in it?

Yes, have tried twice to put some optics there but it just does not work. Thought a bayonet would be funny there but can't get that to look right either. So right now it's just a way of lightening the front end of the stock to make it easier to hold. I'f you've got any ideas, I'm all ears. I did add two purity seals and checked the head but it' stuck fast... so it'll have to remain as is.

shrike wrote:The maxmini head idea is really cool, if they touch it up a bit I might have to get some...

You mean the original bionic head? Yeah, neat concept... just not very good execution. I went and found another one that I hadn't painted... it's about half their model and half my lousy execution on the paint job. In better hands it would be fine.


And the neat thing is between my last post and this one, I completely tore down the entertainment center in my studio. Pulled one component to replace another in our living room, tossed a bunch of extra wires and unnecessary bits, put both back together and everything is working fine. Not a bad nights work!

Progress:

Base is done... I didn't quite have the same grey that WM uses on his bases, so I made my best mix... but the base can easily be re-ringed in the proper color.



And I have a green marine. (actually he's not quite this yellow)... issue with my camera.

That's BLACKHAND's handi-work. The skull on the gun is actually from one of the skull and chain chaos vehicle drapes. It's about the nicest skull out there and I think compliments the gun nicely. It will probably have something intimidating written on it when done. Next, the not-so-glamorous job of lining the whole fig... that could take a day or two.

And I got a little bag of very cool bits that I have great plans for, but the first experiment will be on vent's GMS mini. That'll be fun... can't wait!
