It's been far too long between updates on these guys...

The end is nigh.














In the last pic, the head on the left was the original prototype, which had the eye pieces too far apart. The one on the right is the new version, mostly finished, although the respirator casings running along the jawline need a little bit of trimming down, as they stick out too far to the sides right now.

I loved the jetbike and the terran sternguard are pretty cool. Its a shame terminator hands were chosen, they look a bit strange, apart from that great stuff, i am sure your clients are always pleased! Any chance we could see any of them painted? I know you would have to talk to the clients etc but if any of them were willing to show the finished article that would be cool.

In the time I've been making models for other people, I've seen a handful of them painted. It gets a little depressing after a while

That just means you have to make me another model. Do you have any interesting ideas on how to make a Doom of Malan'tai?


Oh, and BTW if you want you can use the painted images of the Winged Tyrant you made for me on your site if you want...

Put the finishing touches on the Sternguards' head this morning:



I'm sending these off to have enough for the squad cast up in resin, to save a bit of work on trying to get a squad of them all looking the same. Updates as I get them

Hadn't really thought about it... but could be a fun sculpting project. I'll have to have another read through the flluff in the codex, and see what I can come up with

I've had the word plethora stuck in my head recently so i've thrown it around a few times. It's a nice word, very evocative. This thread is truly the definition.

After seeing your blog i am contented... and subscribed.

P.S. I would love you input on my thread 'The Toolbox!' It's designed to help most hobbyists but it needs some new blood and a rewrite from me to keep it useful. Would be great, thanks.

I should probably mention then that this will be the end of this particular thread, as this was theoretically kind of my last commission. (I say 'theoretically' because that was the intention when I decided to stop taking commissions, but then I decided that I might still take the odd one if it's something I'm excited about, so there may actually be the odd one from time to time...) So this seemed like an opportune time to put this monster of a thread to rest and concentrate more on specific projects, starting with my Plague Demon sculpting practice that's going on over here.


Cheers to all of those who have followed this thread though...

Very nice... man those helms are ... distracting (for lack of a better word). Love the effect though.

Guess I'm late to the party... have to spend some time catching up with your blog.

The Plague Demons are just the starting point... They'll expand out from there, hopefully

So, it would appear that I am just pathologically incapable of working on a single project at a time...

I had decided to wind this thread up, and started a new thread detailing the sculpting and painting of some Plague Demons that I was playing around with. But then I got sidetracked with a whole bunch of other stuff as I have finally managed to work a regular 40K gaming session into my week and it's got me all excited about modeling again. So rather than clog up the Blogs forum with a dozen different threads for everything that I'm likely to be working on at any given time, I figured I might as well dust this one off and carry on where I left off.

So, about those Plague Demons. About halfway finished on the painting here:



I have been teaching my brother to play 40K, and we've been playing a lot of 750-point games to get him into the swing of it, which gave me a good excuse to put my Red Corsairs back on the table, as they slotted in pretty much perfectly for that size game. Since we're not going to stay that small for ever, though, it also seemed like a good time to finally start expanding them out into a proper army. So, to kick it off in perfect Red Corsair style, I stole a rhino from my Imperial Dragons Veteran Squad, and started repainting. Still WIP, obviously:
.

The plan is to update my Imperial Dragons vehicles to the current style vehicles. I'll be using the original vehicle variants in my Red Corsairs, and (because there are already a couple in there) the 2nd edition variants in my regular Chaos Marine army.

So the Corsairs will also be getting an original Rogue Trader-era Predator that I scored off eBay a couple of weeks ago. Also still WIP:


I also have a squad of mixed 2nd edition and Rogue Trader-era metal terminators who will be getting Red Corsair-ised, just as soon as the simple green does its magic:



And while we're on the Terminator front, I found a whole bunch of original Space Hulk terminators on eBay a couple of years ago, that have been sitting in a box all this time waiting for me to do something with them. I decided that they would fit perfectly into my rather dated Imperial Dragons Lost Company army. This was my first ever 40K army, mostly assembled back in 1994-95. They were cobbled together from whatever I could get my hands on at the time. I have decided to keep going with the 'slightly dodgy' theme, and these Terminators fit in perfectly there:



And finally, (for now at least) I started work on my contribution to the Waaagh: Dakka page:


More soon.
