Cheers mate.

My tools of trade are *drum roll*. The GW sculpting tool, a scalpel and a pin. Although my darling wife has just bought me a 12 piece sculpting tool set as a birthday present!

Ok, been quiet on the update front I know but it's because I've been working on something that I wasn't sure would work - As I've never done anything like it before.... So I was holding off on pictures until it was done! Which it is!..... maybe. I'm gonna go back and re-do the banding on the shin guard and maybe a few other things too while I'm at it.

This is actually my first full sculpt and my first sculpted face as well. Thoughts, criticisms etc all welcome.








Automatically Appended Next Post:
Ok, due to some advice I've made several changes. Namely...

Narrowed the Chin. Bulked up the Cheek bones. Raised the left knee. Lowered her right buttock.

I've painted the skin and hair on Dixx. To be truthful I painted this on the weekend but I've been doing Overtime at work so just haven't had the time to take pictures or paint any more! The skin is a mix of Scab Red, Bestial Brown and Dwarf Flesh. Highlighted up with Dwarf Flesh then Elf flesh. Finally washed with a mix of Codex Grey and Elf flesh around the nose and below the chin for shadow.






I'm thinking of adding some sort of band logo on the back of her leather jacket and some small motif to her T-Shirt but I dunno what. I was thinking 'Lasguns n' Roses' on her Jacket, obviously with the Guns n Roses logo. AS for the T-Shirt, colour and motif ideas please!

Thinking of something like this on the back of the jacket with "Lasguns and Roses" and, obviously, lasguns instead of Pistols. Good/Bad?

Ha! Now that is awesome, kudos on the sculpting and paintjob, that freehand is insane. The zippo lighter is also a very nice touch, tells you heaps about the character without a single word needing to be written. Great stuff.

Cheers guys! Master of many talents? I just wish some of them applied to the outside world!! lol


Right, picture time! She's done!........... maybe. She feels to 'clean' so I might add some dirt, scuff marks and weathering on the metals. Speaking of metals, I'm really not impressed with my metallics on this model. :S








This last photo was supposed to show the highlighting on the leather off..... but the camera focused on the crate......... you get the idea though.

Cheers mate! Do you think she needs some more band insignias/badges etc? Maybe on her upper arms etc? Or shall I leave her as is?

Next up I'm going to go back to the Magos and do some simple freehand on the robes. Then I'll paint up the Pit slave.

I actually like how clean she looks and truly, it's a marvellous paintjob; and that t-shirt, awesome! As for the metallic, I think they look spot on, I wouldn't change a thing. I don't think she needs any more freehand on the jacket either although, if you really think she needs a little something extra, how about a little tattoo on the back of her right hand, a spider web or something?

Thanks dude! I hadn't thought about tattoos dammit....... now you've got me thinking! I went and added some small patches of dust on the Investigators and the girls boots. Although I forgot to take new pictures of the girl (other than the first pic) so you'll jut have to trust me.

I went back and added some minor damage to the Investigator and also some freehand on the Magos' robes.









AI'm also half way through painting up the next model. Well, I say half way. The skin and face is done. EDIT: That face painted up pretty well (It's made form a press mould remember!)

I honestly don't think you would ever know that was a press mould of Stone's head; funnily enough I did one myself which I then chopped down and resculpted a bit and that head too, turned out good, as did one of Eisenhorn's so they obviously take to it well. For a PIP he looks pretty good and especially like the oily metallics.

Where do you get the mesh from for the bases, is that bought in or just some stuff you found? I managed to find a small sheet of fine mesh which I've basically used up now but I've struggled to find anywhere that sells something like that.

How did you go about doing your press moulds? Was it using Instant mould as well or through other ork-like shenanigans?

As for the mesh, it's aluminium car body mesh. If you type that into ebay you get loads of them pop up. Although the Ebay prices are pretty expensive. I pick mine up from an Iron Mongers for about £1.50. Halfords does it as well.

Do they? Excellent, I shall have to have a trip to Halfords then, thanks for the tip.

The press moulds I made were just Green Stuff which, if I recall correctly, wrapped around the head to just behind the ears and then I sculpted the back of the head on afterwards. They were pretty basic but achieved a great level of detail.

Right, so a bit of a back track. I blame two things.......... 1, Mad Max: Fury Road for making me want to revisit (and finish) my Road Warrior Guard army. 2, The new Knight Codex........


I will eventually do all the Knight weapons. I'm doing a BIG assault cannon next for the right arm an then I'll do a big cannon for the left. I will magnetise them so I can swap between weapon outfits as I please......... as soon as my magnets arrive... Oh and yes, it's missing tubing, I am going to add some...... honest.







Some pics to show that all the joints do move!




The wrist does, indeed twist.






Hopefully on Wednesday I can crack on with some more 54mm shenanigans

Right. Gatling Cannon arm is done. Well, minus the Magnets. I'll have to tweak the elbow joint once the magnets arrive but other than that it's good to go I think. Thoughts?

All the joints/Pistols do move.





This will be magnetised to allow weapon swaps. I'll do the Battle Cannon/Thermal Cannon so that they can feature on either arm.

I have to say, the combination of parts work so much better than the original Sergeant Stone legs and arms that is you didn't know what the original model was like you'd never tell the kit didn't come just as you've done it here. I always thought Gruss's arm looked a bit iffy but it's spot on here. I really like the hazard stripes on his head as well, never seen anything than bare metal used before so that's a very nice little touch and the tattoos seem very natural, almost as if he's been branded.

And the walker is really excellent, detail on the arms is particularly nice, I mean, who doesn't love a giant gatling gun but the claw as well is pretty sweet. How have you fixed the joints to keep it all strong, metal pins or some such?

Such a great idea for a guard army and so much more 40K than the rather too clean cut Cadians.

Sorry for the late reply! Thanks for the comment mate. Glad you like my work As for the joints, They're pinned but the shoulders and elbow on the Gatling cannon are magnetised so I can swap arms/weapons as I please. I think I'm going to stay with a Gatling Cannon and Thermal Cannon set up.......... I like Dakka.

Right, So...... some more Mad Max Madness! 5 done, 4 more to go and then a unit of Quad Bikers Let me know what you think.

Some WIP on one of the 'Sentinels'. Again, this guy is from Ramshackle Games. The only conversion is the addition of the Ork Big Shootas.

Some really lovely work in here. That trike is all sorts of hot.


The detailing on the mech arms is great (clever use of a Sentinel foot!).

On the Gatling arm, the muzzle looks a tad long. I'd make it about half that long, at most. Looks too delicate as is, while the shorter muzzle keeps the more brutal look to it.

Hey guys, apologise for not posting for ages. Spare time has been somewhat infrequent the last few weeks/months due to getting ready for my First born and raking in the overtime at work (84 hour weeks). Anyway, you don't care about that!! You just came here for some eye candy and toy soldier porn.

So, this is pretty much all I've been up to that's worth posting. This is R013130, a Battle servitor bodyguard for my Magos.





Scale shot





Still trying to come up with rules for this bad boy. The main Back story idea is that he's a lobotomised Acolyte who failed the Magos in some way (probably for breaking something important). I know it needs fleshing out but hey, I'll do that on the train to work. Right, I'm not going to promise to post more frequently because I can't but I'll at least try and get some painting done.

Cheers mate. The quality of Ramshackle is pretty rough in all honesty. There's a fair few bubbles, missing detail and the flash is just shocking. So the stuff needs a good deal of work to get ready. Luckily a rough and ready paint job hides most of the imperfections. You're not going to get a beautiful model out of them but you're not really going to be buying this stuff for that purpose anyway
