And with the metals (mostly) done:

I quite like how their helmets stand out from a distance.

They should start to become more interesting from now on...

Did someone mention hazard stripes? Oh yeah that was me...


Also done a few other things you may see; purity seals, lenses, etc.

Now on to final details, highlighting the red areas and edges, BA transfers, squad markings and deciding what is to be written on the two scrolls...
Then battle damage / weathering and bases...

Thanks Shas. That would be because they are Blood Angels.

However, the addition of the transfers didn't go as smoothly as it could have (I used to be happy to just stick on the decals and leave them with that edging that you get, now my higher standards want to completely obliterate it), still learning the best way to use Microsol/set; hit and miss at the moment.

So the Blood angel markings are battle damaged already and the rest of the armour will follow suit.

Here they are after highlights:


Also had some issues with the bases, but may have saved them (well pretty much re-painted them...).

Next time you see them, they should be done.

Thanks. With all the damage I've added, maybe not so "new".

shasolenzabi wrote:I noticed the one with the assault cannon has a peppermint stick power fist.
Just say that to his face and you'll find out what it tastes of...

I'm calling them done.

They are quite beat up, but you will notice that there is no dirt or rust; they do still keep up the maintenance of their armour.
and being on metal plate floor, it doesn't make sense to have any mud etc...

The bases did have quite vibrant lines painted on, but upon trying to weather them I lifted off a patch of "metal" paint and had to fix that. This led to almost completely re-painting them and left the lines quite dulled down. I left them dull so as to not over-power the models standing on them.

Decided to leave the name plates blank so that the new owner can add his/her own names to them (as I did on previous models).

The most veteran of veterans, these marines are sent in when all others have failed and the odds are high.
When a relic needs securing or some brothers need extracting; this squad is sent in and they show no mercy.
Between them, centuries of experience, and many lifetimes of knowledge.
If you're in need of help, and if you can find them... er... the Rescue Terminators.

Whole squad:


"Stumpy", Has he noticed the hand or is he in for a surprise (you don't become veterans by being surprised...)


Assault cannon Terminator. The damage to the shoulder pad was already there when I got him (and is probably the reason the original owner didn't remove any other sprue tags).


Squad leader, looking pretty chilled out (or confident in his squad). Quite happy with how the power sword came out.


Second in command of the squad. Slightly more decorated than the others.


and Mr Hazard fist. Nuff said.


These will be up on ebay soon-ish. I'll let you know.

Thanks. Was an interesting challenge to work with the starting issues and I'm happy with how they turned out.

Red Harvest wrote:Nice job , and on the bases too. I dislike overly decorated bases. Distracts from the mini, IMHO.
Thanks Red'. Yeah, the lines on the bases started off a bit too bright and would have needed more additions for them to make sense. This way they frame the models and don't detract from them.

I'm sorry to disappoint so soon, but it's not pirates. Not directly anyway... and is dependant on what the potential customers wants to do with them.

It damn well better be for a trebuchet.

Because working scale model trebuchets are the epitome and quintessence of cool....


On the subject of pirate ships, a 1/56 scale pirate ship, or any other sailing ship, would be awesome. And would sell in a hurry.

A trebuchet would be cool. Maybe something for the future.

and would be very difficult to cast at this time. Maybe with more practice (which is the aim of this project).

That would also be correct. Give the man a cookie.

Yes, a hut.
You may have seen my previous attempt at a wooden hut and I was pretty pleased with how that one came out. But it is not without it's problems, mostly in the scale and engineering sides.

This hut will be better constructed, undamaged (as a master copy), and will be moulded and cast as a model kit that will allow the customer to build it how they want (modify parts, alter the shape, etc...).

This is what I have so far.

I'm still working out how the parts go together and many of the edges are rough for the moment (as I don't want to cut something off I may need later).

What you can see is that each wall section (which still need a diagonal beam) will come separate and that the posts will also be separate.
I'm aiming to have the wall sections able to be assembled either way up and therefore only need 3 different sections to make a whole hut from without any obvious repetition. 2 completed walls of the hut will be 3 sections and the other 2 will be 4 sections.

There will also be a window and a door section for each kit, and these will be interchangeable with the wall sections, allowing you to have the door and window anywhere you want.

It should also be possible to build the hut "inside out" to give more variation. Will have to see how that works out though in the corners.

I'm going to try and give this hut a pointy roof (as opposed to the flat roof on my previous hut) which should look nice.

Also, the wall sections, turned on their sides, could make a fence; giving cover and not just blocking line of sight.

And, buying more than 1 kit will allow you to make bigger huts, different shapes (with a bit of modelling), or a hut with a fence and a porch (or whatever you like).

But, as I said, still early days and I'm still planning the layout and how the parts fit together.
I've wanted to make this kit since I started with the casting and selling things, and I hope you will be as excited at the possibilities as I am.
If all goes well, I may even make a futuristic version... or other themed versions... and they could all be interchangeable with each other...

...still, one step at a time...

Sounds good. I would love to see one (or two ) painted by you.

Thanks Stormwall. I'm also eager to see how it turns out.

Thanks C'Lion.

After a bit of a tidy up of the edges and fixing the lengths of the wall sections and posts, This is how the walls work:


Now all these pieces fit together pretty much any way up or any way round I can move on to the next step.
Some sides of the posts are tighter fits than others on certain sides of the wall sections, but you only need to rotate the post 90deg (or turn it over) and try again.
As you can see, it should be possible to dry-fit the whole thing together to check these things.

Not too sure about the outside of the corners yet. I may make something to fit in there and make it look more "meant to be".

Now I need 4 more posts, more planks, and then I'll make the window and door sections.

And a window is born...


That should also give you an idea of how big this hut kit will be, that's the long wall length to compare with the 3 section short walls.
Obviously, you could build it as a 3x3 hut and have a couple of wall sections spare for a fence.
