oh... that thread nearly slipped me by! but thankfully i searched my friends thread list today!...

as i mentioned earlier... you are doing a very fine job with all those artful statues...seeing them all... when do you include them in some even bigger terrain pieces? like a giant temple...

and for suggestions... seeing your talent...some stone plates that make up a giant mosaic with the grim darkness seeping through would be a good deed from you i think...

anyways... hope to see more of this great stuff soon here!

cheers, vik

Well that and the other obvious question would be if he was willing to sell a few copies of those statues ?

Seriuosly, who wouldn't want one of those, if they were reasonabley priced ?

They look sooo good! I also whant to see step by step how you did them.
it's nice to see that you finally decided to make a your own thread.

Also, I have an idea of a maybe future project.
you could do a building with pillars holding the roof up. and the pillars formed like marines.

Like the 4 ones you have pics on here. just put a roof on thier heads!

and alot of tablets and stuff

anyways! keep up the really great work you do! i'm looking forward to see more from u!

that looks very creepy... so totally true to the aimed target then!^^

what is that white sculpting material you use?


and adam... what a selfish guy you are

Hi vic

The white material i use is called DAS modeling clay, it's an air drying clay thats not great for detail, but is perfect for bulking out the shape of a model.
It's also quite cheap in bulk, and goes along way.

i think you´ve mentioned that already earlier... sometimes i am a bit dense^^ i have that material too.... and working with that is quite easy... drys out quite good and can later on be reworked with tools too!

I looked up the DAS clay. Looks good. I use, sometimes for projects my wife commissions, an air dry foam like clay that (like you said) sucks for detail but fills space very nicely and without a lot f added weight...


I am glad to see on a thread of you own. keep it up....

looks awesome dude, but that only thing I can say against it is, I'd rather see the sword across his lap/across the arms of the chair, it just looks a little odd where it is.

i have to second childes statement here... for me the sword looks as if it is about to slide down and plunge to the ground...

Yeah i was'nt too sure about the sword position either, but nothings stuck in place yet, so i'll shift it about and see how it looks. Will post another pic when it's done.

I might even consider replacing the sword all togther, maybe with a customized bolter or somthing, anyone got any ideas?

I kinda like the bolter idea. Or maybe a Chain Sword or power hammer....

wow this is looking great!
consider me subscribed!

to bad you cant sell them (with the over obvious spacemarine statue's and stuff GW would eat you alive) but if you where to make some more generic monuments you could sell those and i think a lot of people would love to buy

WHEN CAN I GIVE YOU ALL MY MONEY??

I think the sword is the right thing for this piece imo, as it can be representational of both the emperors wrath and the imperial truth. bolters and chainswords make me think Astartes not Inquisitors.
