Just the weathering left to do; mud and dirt, chips, scratches and burns.
And any final touch-ups...

Happy New Year.


Sorry Dr.

Looking fantastic, the tones are brilliant, exceptional detailing as we expect from you.

Totally a personal thing, I would maybe have done some of the paintwork a bit glossy, but that is not a criticism, more a taste thing.

No worries Cam. This time of year is like posting on the weekend.

Thanks.

What bits of paintwork are you thinking of? Not sure where you mean.

Like I say it would be a personal thing, I think of Chaos as Slimey or Glistening, so the "black" panel parts would be a gloss finish for me.

Totally not necessary, though, it looks stunning as is.

A little verdigris on the metal? Some evidence of heating/soot on the exhaust pipes? (or is that covered on the burns part?)
It all looks fine to me though.

I see. I won't on this one as I want the few gloss parts to stand out (the letterbox visor, the eye and lenses on the weapons and the red exposed hoses). Thanks.

Thanks Peter. Thought I'd give it a go and see what all this magnetising was all about.

I wanted this to say "gold" rather than "brass".
Also, that would likely cover up the wash I've already given it.

That is covered in the "burn" part.
Thanks.

Just made a mess of the freehand by varnishing too soon (note to self; get some spray-on varnish). Just have to give it an eye and eyebrow back and then wait before varnishing again.

Base is mostly done though.

Thanks Shas.

And now he's starting to look like he's been in the wars; Chips and scratches...
and notice the re-done freehand.


Need to bring all the attachments up to this stage. I may add some red scratches to the fleshy areas.

and then dirt. Just some dust collected in corners, nothing too drastic (unlike the chipping that had to match the moulded chips in the trim).

Also need to add brown to the plant-life on the base.

Not long to go now...

I really like the alternate face plate, and your black. It is deep, but still black. And also shaded giving a depth i enjoy in black.

I want to see it having a bad day (weathered) and look forward to it.

Thanks Cam. Good to hear.
Yeah, it's taken much longer than I hoped, but then I gave up on finishing it quickly halfway through.
Just have to see what someone thinks it's worth.

I'm ahead of you there, Shas. Although I only added rust to some of the chips to show that some are newer than others.

Thanks Comrade. Yep, that's what I wanted to achieve with the black.
I have dirtied him up a bit, but as I ended up with a rocky base, I couldn't do loads of mud splashes etc. But there is dust and dirt, mostly around the legs, and some rust streaks and soot in places.

Right, so unless anyone can spot anything I've missed, it is DONE.

Have a close look through the pictures, there is loads of detail that you may or may not have missed so far.






He'll be up for sale soon. I need to have a chat with my friend to see what we're going to ask for it first.

I'll be heading back to my army blog soon with something new soon-ish...

Four Hundred Million Billion Dollars of course But that would represent a significant discount over what Games Workshop charges for the basic model, no?

Really a very nice conversion. I do hope it finds a good home.

If someone were to pay that much, I would personally visit any of their games where it is in use and move it about the table for them, making suitable noises as I do so. Just as a bonus.

The Helbrute kit is not as badly priced as some other GW "models" (in quote marks as the worst offenders are usually the single pose, 3 pieces if you are lucky, Character "models"). The helbrute sits in the relatively-reasonably-priced middle, between the single pose characters and the "large" (but not actually that large in the modelling world. I'm always amazed at how small GW models are) super-over-powered uber-models for stupid money.

Anyway, tangent aside...

Thanks Red.

If I tell you that it took roughly 107 hours to build and paint, you can work out for yourself how much it "should" cost (even at minimum wage) and therefore, how much of a good deal it'll be to whoever buys it.

Wow great work dr. All the bits/weapon swaps are amazing touches. Only complaint is the weathering is slightly dull, but doesnt draw back by any means.

Thanks Comrade.

When I first did the chipping, I thought I'd gone too far and so I didn't want to do the same with the dirt.

Had I also ended up with a muddy base instead of rocky, I would have added more mud/dirt.

Also, I didn't want to get carried away with the rust and get too close to something Nurgle (it's a long way off that, but y'know...).

I'm off to my army thread now for some thinking. Something will happen there shortly.

LOL! Ever since dropping some interesting recreational chems, I have been resistant to adverts and such sales attempts. BUT like I said, IF I had a CSM army, that would be a centerpiece for it!

Thanks Gorgrimm.
That's what I wanted to achieve with the options. Hide the join and make each attachment look like it's permanently attached.

Although, I could have spent twice as long as I did to get them as closely fitting as I really wanted. But I had to say "close enough" for the sake of time/money.
