Thanks for the warm welcome.


Now I have to decide what to do with the arms of the larger models ...
Originally the demon prince was supposed to be a counts as forgefiend but despite turning out too small I left the size. That means however I need a new Idea for the arms and weapons.

The same goes for the walker. I don't have a fitting base bit. Maulerfined arms are to large for the thin frame but the talos pain engine are to tiny ...

Maybe you should try Heldrake arms? They should fit the bill, and they look instantly chaotic, without needing much more work to blend them in. The best part is that they are also compatible with the Forgefiend weapons, with a bit of work.

Failing that, the power fist arms from the new multipart Helbrute may be an option worth looking at.

Just so we're clear, you mean this one right?



If that's the case, would some of the old daemon prince arms work? From this one:



They might be bulky enough.

If you don't have that, you could always scrap build some arms from some plasticard and add some green stuff fleshy bits.

Hrm, Maybe a thinner, short, upper arm and a longer thicker forearms, like the powerfists or the arms of a warjack. Maybe with weapons incorporated into the forearms guards of under them, also with the larger hands with that style you could have it crushing another marine. Just a idea

Multipart helbrute kit? That totally went past me ...
Maybe I should look at the GW site for what other stuff I missed during my thesis.

And as fara s arms go, I don't have the sligtes clue what I should do for the demon prince. But I want to do womething different. A demonic power fist might be a good idea. I have to look the helprute kit up.

The actual talos/sentinel kitbash I think the best arms would be longer, mostly mechanical arms to go with the slim frame of the rest.


Another good news. I picked up a few of my sister of battle pieces. So I might have some updates there too.

And a new batch of updated pictures

I still have to decide what to do with the armos of my DP and helbrute. But I am mostly finished with the legs and I also sculpt a head for the helbrute.






I also assembled typhus a bit more. He and his base isn't finished yet. But I'm getting there. I still have to scratch him up to let him look a bit more nurgley and add a few icky details.
And the base also needs a finishing touch.




Another project you haven't seen is my defiler. I started building its torso. Yet still a lot needs to be done. The basic idea is to replace the massive boxy torso with a female looking one. I still want to keep it mostly mechanical. But I have to add a few rougher details to match the style of the rest of the legs (Or rework the legs ...)




And then there are those two. The daemonette terminator is just a random sideproject. And the others are more possessed warptalons just to do something with the remaining legs. Now I need to improvise two jetpacks for them ... I started to work on two mutated ones made from tyranid bits. I have to see how it will turn out.

The new stuff is looking great!

And I suppose the best stuff about sculpting Chaos is that it doesn't have to look proportional. I mean.. if it was, then it wouldn't be as Chaotic.

I wasn't as productive as i wanted to be. But At least I got some stuff done. I based and assembled a few more of my possessed terminators. I probably have way to many now. But I really like how they turned out. Sadly the white resin casts are hard to take pictures of. I hope you can see enough here.



And my two new warptalons are also rather close to beeing done. Only the jetpacks need a bit of teching up so that they don't simply look like tyranid backs. And I somehow need to attack the packs to their backs the warptalons have those weird attachment point, so I have to fix that up too.

Your stuff is as beautiful as ever Doom Loving the casts, cant wait to see a lick of paint on them to help bring out the detail.

I have a few questions though
Your DP's legs, the left leg, in it are small bars underneath GS flesh. Do you; push the bars into the GS and then sculpt the flesh in one go, or do you glue the bars stationary and then GS over the top? the effect is really well done

Also, what technique do you use for your cloaks, the cloak on the daemonette-termie is soooooo nice are you using the technique from the FTWblog?

The bars are actually two steps. I glued the bars on and then added a few GS segments over the bars. I let those cure and then added the flesh in the second step.


And for the cloaks I use a similar technique to the blog's. But instead of plasticard i start with a metal sheet. This way I can bent it into shape much more freely. Yet it is still strong enough to sculpt on top.
(Just to make sure I often add a thin layer of milliput on top before sculpting the folds.)

The sheets i'm using are 0,15 mm aluminum foil sheets.

If the white resin doesn't photograph well you could try washing it with a bit of ink in any color. It will make the details more noticeable.

I tried a slightly different photo setup with better results.


Typhus is more or less finished. I know that he isn't supposed to have a power fist but oh well. I like him better that way.


And I continued on my counts as plague marines. Those are done with the exception of their backpacks. The champion needs some more work though.

So only three cultists left to finish for now. Two need finishing touches on their base and the last a few sculpted details to avoid the DV twin syndrome.

I also picked up the work on my latest demon prince and the pain engine helbrute. But I had to learn that the Talos only comes with one mechanical hand ...
Is there another bit out there that is a more filigrane mechanical hand?
I need both left and right hand as I wanted to use actual hands and mount the weapons on the side of the lower arms. Or I have to change my idea. Du you know any hand - GW or 3rd party?

Hmm, what about the metallic claw from the Skaven Hellpit Abomination (seen in this picture? Granted, it's more a claw than a hand, but it looks very cool and might still fit the bill -- plus it would even look cool when used together with the Talos hand.

Alternately, you could try to get your hands on two of the hands from the new Helbrute kit. They are a bit bulkier than the Talos hand, but they might still work. Plus it should be possible to get some from any hobbyist who decided to arm his Helbrute with a weapon configuration that doesn't use the fists...

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestions but not really what I was looking for. I'll keep my eyes open for alternatives. But maybe I have to either build my own hands or mount at least one weapon instead of a hand.

On another note I finished basing the cultists, as well as my cult terminators and obliterator/mutilator. Here are a few examples.






And I picked up other projects too. But I'm a bit torn what to do with the demon princes left hand. Should I build a powerfist,a demonic hand or maybe some kind of arm mounted cannon? Also what do you think of the head?
Also keep in mind that he will most likely get a mechanical tail so that he'll look a bit mor ballanced.



And lastly I finally attached the torso of my defiler. It still needs a lot of work. And I thought about building some kind of spiderlike abdomen but I don't know how it would look.

I think for the demon prince an underslung arm mounted cannon might fit best with the pose.

I just leave those here. (At least some progress )

I wen't with the underslung weapon. Only the hammer needs some work and the hand holding it is also missing.


The basic shape of the arms are done and already magentized. But I have to finish the final details like armor plates and the shoulders. The different weapons also needs to be done.


The defiler also has its basic arm shape ready.


And finally the backpacks for my chosen - inspired by the DV chosen backpacks.


And most of my other models are also based. Just a lot of backpacks for my noise marines and havoks to do

Some excellent new work! A couple of nitpicks, if I may

- The first model is excellently sculpted, although the head is a bit too crocodilian for my taste. Maybe something closer to the "Cyberdemon" look introduced by Doom, for instance, would have been even cooler? But that might just be me.

- The build of your Decimator/fiend based on a Talos is really awesome! My one point of criticism is that the bulky wrist-mounted rocket launcher seems to work against the slender, organic shapes on the rest of the model: Maybe there's an option that would fit the rest of the model's look better? On a related note, are you still looking for a Talos hand, perchance? I happen to have a leftover one that I could send you -- you'd just need to convert it into a left hand by switching around the thumb, but that should be rather easy.

- The Defiler is maybe the first conversion of that kind I truly like: Most similar conversions just plunk down an action figure body on top of the defiler chassis, but that usually doesn't quite work. Your version has been sculpted/converted with the right scale in mind which makes it very effective, in my opinion. Extra kudos for the boob cannon, of course

What are you planning for the face? Are you going to add additional details on top of the mask, or will you keep the blank mask look? Any painting tricks planned for the area?

- Excellent job on the backpacks! Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference, and these are very nice!

In any case, keep up the amazing work!

I agree with you on the head. While I like the details on it id doesn't fit that well with the rest of the model. There was a time when I seriously though of ripping it off and redo it. (And that is something I don't do that often) But I decided to keep it in the end. I want the porject to finish. It took me enough time already for a model that I actually have no use for. Already have too many demon princes )

Thanks. And the missle launcher isn't my weapon of choice as well. It is magnetized though. I'll replace it with a flamer later. I just started with the missle launcher because is was the fastest to do. And another hand would be really cool to have. The other arm even has a magnet in its wrist just for a conversion like this. I just couldn't find the bit to do it.

The defiler turned out better than I have expected. Although I'm still a bit unsure what to do with the arms. And my initial plans for the mask was to leave it blank. But I'm not so sure anymore, especially with all the detailing on the rest of the body. The same goes for the back of the head. My initial plan was to do hairlike cables running down the back.
And I really don't have any painting plans just now. Painting is currently very low on my long list of todo's.

And another smaller update. This is the base I've done for my forgefiend. I went a bit overboard. A bit silly as most of it will be underneath the model and is no directly visible. But oh well, I had fun creating it.
