Thanks for the support guys... Haven't had much time to work on my projects lately but I do have some pictures coming. I got the fisher price airport completely detailed. Just waiting on a clear day to prime it. Im part way through sculpting a cyber grot head. The teeth are trickier than I imagined they would be. The two torso's I have been working on are complete. I will probably make a mold of them and the cyber bits soon.

I haven't had much time to surf lately, but your Cyber-Grot progress is awesome! The legs are a trip! I am working on my own cyber-grot for the Waaagh Dakka, but it won't be for mass production. I can't wait to see all the parts put together! I like where the torso is going! And I can't wait to see your sculpted head!

I poured the second half of a mold containing 2 torsos, the legs and 2 cyber arms. I poured it last night and I won't get to open it up until I get off work today. I'm hoping it will cast well. I made a ton of wireframe sketches for full body sculpts and I spent last night trying a few different methods of making armatures. Most of them didn't work out.

For the fallen tower, what did you use for the moss and vines?

Most of the plants are from a model train store.

the moss is clump foliage of different colors, like http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/woo/woofc683.htm

The Vines are wire panted green, sprinkled with parsley and then sprayed with matte.

I also used some flock on the fallen portion... like so http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/woo/woofl634.htm

Ok the first cast of my new mold turned out pretty decent. Im sure it will get even better as I use it more.

Not a very productive weekend as I ended up playing Space Marine for Xbox instead of working on my projects. I did manage ti slap together a prototype cyber grot. The power claw did not cast well but I left it as is.. I will probably redo the legs as well. I rushed the paint job, which I regret, but here it is...






I probably should have cleaned it up a little more after taking the pieces from the mold but I was impatient. perhaps I will spend more time on the next one....

OMG, that is so badass. Very very well done. He looks like he is limping a bit, A great artist can capture action in a single pose. Again, very very well done.

Awesome! I like the battle damage of the "miscast klaw" Makes it look used.

The leg possitioning is a bit awkward, but then again, it looks like he's stalking his next victim! Are the legs positionable? Or are they a single piece? I think a standing pose would look good too.

Is that your sculpted head?

Can't wait to see #2!

The legs are positionable, I wanted something different because all of the GW grots look like they are squating down. I may have over done it a bit. It doesnt look so dramatic from a table top view as it does from eye level. For a prototype Im happy with it. The 1st legs are a bit thin for casting though so I have a few WIP ideas for round two. my next mold will have two different leg types, a torso, and a couple squigs. That is not my sculpted head by the way.... really need to get that done!

Going with a beefer, easier to cast cyber leg..

Here it is attached

and my much neglected squigs, any left over greenstuff I have mixed from other projects goes on them... they will get done eventually. Here is a family photo after their recent meal of leftovers.

Thanks man, that means alot to me! They still need some work, but when I do cast I will keep you in mind.

That cyber leg looks kick-ass! Does it make him too tall? Or is it that tiny? Your work astounds me! Love it!

It's a pretty tiny leg! I used measurements from the grot assistant in the background. It may be +/- 1mm but my aim is to give them character still while retaining their runt stature.

Awesome! scale is so hard to tell sometimes. I'm constantly holding the pieces I'm working on up to a mini of similar scale just to see if it'll work. And that's when the piece in question is in my hand! I'm totally lost looking at pictures!

No, I haven't had the time to pick up a razor knife or GS in a week or so! I think I am going through withdrawls.
I did sketch up a few things, like an idea for a Grot strapped with explosives chasing a squig with the detonator.

that would be a funny model to have, another thing you could do is a squig with a collar and its chain is wrapped around the grots leg taking him on for the ride
