Thank you gentlemen Hopefully I've got some form of painting mo-jo back now so should be able to get some updates in quicker. In between painting a babies room and building baby furniture....... easier said than done though! Anyway! I was thinking of adding some blood splatters to the sheers and maybe dirtying the feet up a bit. Yay/Nay?


Right, whilst we're pondering about that you can also ponder about what to do with this chap. This is Tech Acolyte Crassos who follows the Magos around like a lost puppy. Not sure what I want to do with the other arm. Either a Flesh and blood arm holding a pistol or a Mechanical arm with built in rotary cannon of some sort. Still working on the fluff for this chap.

I ended up keeping the flesh and blood arm. I reasoned that the guy is just an Acolyte, an new inductee into the Machine cult so wouldn't be overly mechanoid. Anyway, this is where I'm up to.

Guitar wire. I forget which size I'm afraid. It's not expensive though and you get about 1m worth.

Cheers dude!

Ok, he's not finished but any progress is better than no progress! I've gone for a half white/Red robe to symbolise an Acolyte. no idea why I went for it it just seemed to fit. Not sure what to do with the tabbard though so any ideas would be welcome So, thoughts?

I think I might go for a blue effect on the cables as they're 'electro-flails'. Maybe.

Very cool, I also think the blue wash on the cables will bring out a more energised look, although perhaps a very light blue instead of the normal dark blue wash?

Ok, I had a crack at some glow effects on the electro-flail and I'm not 100% sure I pulled it off. I think it needs a final spot of white to really make it 'pop'. I'm also thinking of adding some purpley-blue veins on his arm to make him look sickly/full of chemicals but other than that, and some dirt on his robes, he's done. What do you think thus far?

*Blows dust off thread*

Well, not quite a month since my last update! I forgot to take pictures of the 'dirtied' up Tech Adept but I have done some greasy stains around the base of his robes. I'll take pictures on my next update

Anyway. The past three days I have FINALLY got some spare time to myself and done some hobby! Egads! First up is my first piece of 54mm scenery. I'm planning to do some form of oil refinery. Expect lots of tanks (to blow up!) and churning machine to throw people in




Next up is The Executioner. Going for a funky blue effect. It takes ages but I like it.

Thanks guys. Hopefully this update wont disappoint. Sorry it has taken so long for an update on this. The chest piece took me three attempts to get right. I'm not 100% happy with it now but if I do it again I'm afraid the paint will be too think and will end up being lumpy. The left arm is pretty crap compared to the rest of the piece and I only did the bit behind the shield in case I want to swap weapons. Oh well I guess I'll never take the shield off and hide the errors!! Looking at the pics however i think I do need to go back and add another highlight to the inside of his left arm.







Littletower you have some rather awesome scenery in your galleries. Any advice when it comes to scenery making would be very much appreciated!

Thanks for the very kind words chaps Sorry, not had enough time to concentrate on 'Mr Blue' and I have run out of building materials for the scenery. So, I've been pissing around with an idea I've been toying with for a while.

My mission, should it work, is to create a set of Robed Cultist type models. All multipart. Then cast them up and, if it works, make some NPC's out of them. I am going to keep the sculpts simple for two reasons, so I can add details as and when I want them and to make casting a simpler job. Anyway, I have completed one set. Here's the head (a simple mask and hood head), one set of arms, one set of legs and one torso.

I'm planning to make 2 sets of legs: The one pictured standing still and the other running. 3 heads, one as pictured, a Redemptionist hood and I dunno about the other (ideas!). I'm looking to make 3 torso's, 2 robed and maybe one with a little bit of armour. 3 sets of arms: A set to carry a two handed gun and a straight and bent arm for both left and right arms.

I'm actually a Cyborg. In one hand my fingers end in brushes and the other they end in sculpting tools. It makes socialising and going to the toilet difficult.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
EDIT:

Got bored and made another head. This time it's the Redemptionist head. A bit hard to see but I did sculpt eyes in that hood. Took me about 45mins - an hour to do.

Blue Knight looks brilliant.

Liking the Cultists too, both the heads look great can't decide which I like more...

Knight's armour is just awesome, amazing job.

And thank you for that comment above, though I can hardly add much to what you are already doing here!

If anything, plan for painting when building. Large flat areas - like walls and roof tops, for example - make for boring canvases, remember to add, even if it might seem a bit OTT, enough detailing, ensuring you'll get colour and texture variation later on: rivets (of course), panelling, pipes, and so.

Keep it coming!

Thanks guys! Ok not much work done on Mr Blue as I'm back at work and haven't had any real time to spend on him. I am doing the metals though as I think about the robe/skirt and some freehand ideas.

As for the Cultists! They're done. I now have...

5 Heads, 3 Torso's, 3 legs, 6 arms, 5 hands. The hands are a Pistol grip for each hand, a weapon grip for each hand and an open left hand for carrying a two handed weapon/rifle. Here's some pics.





This is head number 5. I guess this could be a Cult Leader head as it is a bit more detailed than the rest.






Quite happy with the way it came out to be honest. Especially the eyes (they were a git!). I think the 3rd setof legs may be a touch to long. What do you think?

Cheers chaps the head is indeed inspired by the blood pact. Hopefully it will fit a guardsman torso. If not I guess I'll have to sculpt a traitor guardsman. Maybe that can be the next project
