The one with the cable ties holding it on? I thought that looked new, and awesome to boot. The cable ties especially proved to be useful, may have to borrow that idea in the future.

Not where I should be

Thank you all, you are too kind.

So trying to decide whats next, so pulled an old one off the shelf of shame, and did a bit this evening.

Did not like the feet I had on it, (points to the first to guess which shameful model it is for, have to go back a fair ways.) Not even sure the model is still legal/relavant. soo.....

New shoes! well kinda....
Started by cutting and gluing some square tubing to a piece of PC.

Bent and cut some rod.

Glued in to make toes.

Need 2.

Time to stick it to the base.

Inserted a pin, and dry fit of the big guy on his new shoes.


Thank you for stopping by.

oh... these new feet look very good... and mean... but that´s of course the point for that chaosy warmachine...

wanted to add why I like your buggy...

the last additions look very good... the binder held tank for instance... or the shoulder slung lasgun...

I have to say the skin tones look very good...a very convincing hue all over...

after seeing the presentation pics tho I have to add one thing...the driver has way longer legs than midget steve on the passenger´s seat... he looks a wee () bit comically with his stubbly legs all stretched out still only on the seat... I think his feet should have been resting on the floor of the buggy too... just as the driver does...we really need more sitting legs for all our scratch built drivers... GW do you hear me? !!!

By the way cam, where on earth did you get that idea to make the feet that way? After looking at the mini tut I thought this is a brilliant idea!!!

Lol...smurf kebab...

I think that taloned feet idea would work quite good for orky stuff too, wouldn't you say so?

And cam, all my stuff I've built is mostly based on gut feelings and rule of thumb...I am sadly not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to measuring...so impulsive building for the win

Measure twice, cut once Vik. Saves so many head-aches. and $$$, or in your case €€€.

Cam, do you use any sort of diffuser on your light? It looks kind of harsh. Even a piece of white sheet in front of the light may help.

That thing looks pretty smashy, good job.

I can measure as many times as you like, I'm still liable to cut more than once for one reason or another. I do not have the architect/contractor skill of straight lines and scale and all that.

Nice action posing! One squishy smurf, and the other vainly trying to do damage with his bolter.

Casting materials? Can't wait too see...
Hey, what is that oddly green hemisphere in the upper right corner of the penultimate photo? it looks like you cut a duckpin bowling ball in half.

Much better with the lighting.

Practice, GrimDork, it's just practice. And a good straight edge. I manage despite numerous issue with my mitts. So, I reckon anybody can.

Good job, Cam. Like the pose of the not-quite-dead-yet marine.

Ooo, I saw that resin and silicone on ebay and thought about getting them. But I have stuck with what I know, for now.
Very interested in seeing how you get on with them and how the final product compares.

Idunno red, I'm pretty sure it's just a weakness of mine. I may be able to get better, but I'll still be climbing out of a hole... my lazy side urges me to choose activities for which I have more of a starting bonus

So Cam, what exactly is that monstrously violent looking chaos beastie? In game terms. Or is it just a fun conversion? I may have missed where you already explained it, but if not then I just dunno chaos things well enough to guess it. Pretty violent and smashy looking though, good work

Thanks as always,

@ Shas Indeed thank you.

@ Red and Dr H, Yes I am interested to see what the heck I do as well, Bought with the intent of saving me on making track assembly and such things. Personal use only really, though I suppose if anyone asked me nicely once I have anything I will let them have, at the moment cutting a hundred individual links and detailing puts me off many projects, however I have seen Klaus use it very effectively and what seems to be quickly to make bogies and links. Also some of my guns I tend to make up, I may try and cast up.

Wish me luck, just got to get the courage up to have a go.

@ Grim Thank you, it was originally meant to be a Decimator Daemon Engine. Me son asked for one, but the FW model is like OMG expensive, so made this. Similar size, and the best I can manage on the weapons. Probably never see battle. The weapons are a seige claw thingy, with a built in flamer, and a butcher cannon. Both are wonderful stat's and do lots of damage, in theory.

So what I been doing, well just bumming around really, made this up, maybe just terrain maybe a base for something not sure.





Thanks for looking in, please feel free to comment.

was that an underside of a toy car?... clever... using the junk that has no "real face" to it for ruined terrain!

and I wanna see you get into casting too... not only to later on maybe ask you nicely... but rather to see someone stepping boldly where I would like to go one of these days (make that read years) ...

Good use of the car part on the terrain/base.

Good luck with the casting. Make sure you have everything you could possibly need before starting, as you don't want to be searching for something while the stuff cures. Start small / simple / easy and don't try to do too many moulds/casts in one go, as you may just end up with a nice cast of the bottom of your mixing pot (like I have from my first attempt).

My casting materials have arrived today, so I'm now staring at my things laid out on the table...
