Sadly, this needs to be put on hold. My wife is insisting that I replace the breaks on my car... turns out, they are not supposed to shriek like the souls of the damned escaping from the Warp every time I approach a stop sign. scratch

@ Laney: COÑO!!! You are THIS close to start making me swear in Spanish again! That is some awesome work! I'm green with envy... you have talent to spare!

@ The ISH: You could let your breaks go PAST that point... I mean, the breaks on MY car were metal when I changed them this Friday! Just Kidding

Here are some pics of a truescale terminator I have built - using the front of a venerable dreadnought. It's a form of cataphracti (pre-heresy) armour. Always love feedback - does it look scaled ok?




Scaling Pic...


Please excuse the dodgy pics

Ta Laney (more normal marines and a truescale dreadnought on the cards soon)

The work is AMAZING! I think the Termie should be a little taller, compared to the SM... CRAP! I just saw it. Nevermind. It is the Basing! The SM is on the winged thing. Smile Great sculpt too!

Hi All,

Just to give an update here are a few very WIP shots of my truescale marine squad so far (I intend to do ten marines eventually - but at least a minimum of five). I've not forgotten the Varangians - they are just on the back burner for a while (along with the eldar, orks and renegades!). I'm beginning to realise why I have such a random mix of minis (finished and unfinished)!




Please note they are very WIP and lots of gaps need filling and dodgy GS work covering with symbols and purity seals! But, I still love feedback all the same!

Cheers Laney cheers

Insane, fantastic work on the true scale terminator.
Can't wait to see them painted .

Just a quick update to show I've not been totally idle... A few pics of a still WIP Sergeant Nathanael of the Blood Angels. I've been working on NMM gold and the red power armour - hopefully they won't look to rubbish given the poor lighting.

(Quite pleased with how the power sword came out - as I've never tried this style before)






Still got to work on the gems, the black armour sections, the top highlights, the parchments/cloth and the NMM silver/metallics (plus a load of little details)

EDIT: Any suggestions on a top highlight colour for the gold areas (it's currently iyanden darksun, which doesn't have the shine/reflective qualities i want) Question

Cheers Laney bounce

Even given the poor lighting, he looks TERRIFIC! I LOVE the way the power sword came out; EXCELLENT job on the NMM, & the face. I can't wait to see how you do the base. VERY WELL DONE! What a Face

Laney... I think I'm unable to talk to you EVER again. Between you and Deaf... I can't handle both of you! That is a VERY impressive model. If I every do something like that, I probably stop where you are... because I would be VERY afraid of screwing it up. It IS the BOMB!!!

The sculpt is FLAWLESS... It is SO PERFECT... that it does not looks like a modified Marine. Please, take that as what it is... a compliment of the highest caliber! Your conversion is so amazing, that it looks like a 'normal' model. You should make a diorama (kindda like Dozer's Prisoner) ... your Blood Angel passing judgment to a human Heretic. That way everyone can see the REAL majesty of your Marine's size!

I do not know what to say... the SWORD! HOLY @#$?*!!! How... HOW!!!?????? You know... It is tutorial time! HA!

You are a MASTER.

Thanks guys, It means a lot to get such great feedback. He has a little way to go, but more painting will happen soon. On that note - it was Deafnala who gave me the idea to try out NMM gold (and silver - only part done) on this model - I'm well pleased with the effect particularly on the winged chalice on the backpack (where I actually thought about light direction! Smile )

I have a plan for the marines, because I am also working on their exact opposite - the rest of a blood angels chaos squad (I read the Dornian Heresy on the Bolter and Chainsword site, which is an awesome alternate reality for the 40k universe - very simply Horus fights off the machinations of chaos and all of the loyalist marines turn to chaos instead - Plague Blood Angels, Noble World Eaters, Separatist Ultramarines and all set at the Heresy time - check it out if you haven't already), based around Septicaemius - my Pox Angel from ages ago.

Here is my second pox angel Varicellus (or... 'how to use up my first few crap efforts at casting in resin and learnt o do it properly!')


(It was a bit bright where I took the pics)

EDIT: I'll see what I can do about a tutorial - Kiwi asked a while ago about the 'normal' blue power sword I do, plus I've found a cool force weapon idea I want to try - so a tutorial might be on the cards (possibly looking at other colours as well - I'm intrigued by green power weapons and how they look). It makes me think that everyone has a different technique(s) that they could share - I personally want to see... How to make bunny slippers in GS - Mudboy! Very Happy Just Kidding albino

EDIT 2: Thought you might like to see a scaling pic with Sergeant Nathanael an imperial guardsmen (one of my first paintjobs back in the hobby and a WIP soul drinker marine - from my old army)

Varicellus is a FINE looking WIP piece...LOVE the helmet & the canisters on his backpack. This ought to paint up in a SPECTACULAR fashion. What a Face

I found that the things I picked up doing NMM effects improved my metallics...funny how things work out. Suspect

Thanks Deafnala - I need to upgrade my effort (painting wise) from the last pox angel that I did. I have found that being paint of this forum has really challenged me to up my game and each piece seems to have improvements on the last (whether that be a new technique, conversion, GS, whatever...). I am hoping to do a sky-earth NMM piece using a tau stealth suit at some point (but that is when I finally get really good! bounce )

He will definitely be a fine nemesis for my loyalist blood angels anyway! Shocked

Holy Crap! Dude "You are Sick!" That is another compliment.

Your converted models don't look converted/modified. They look like a normal mold.

Thanks Da Bank - if it looks like a moulded piece, that's about the highest compliment a conversion can get Cheers cheers . My GS work is definitely getting better (and having used procreate for a while, coming back to GS was really easy). I have to say the new blood angels sets (Death Company and Sanguinary Guard) are just absolutely stacked with great parts for the loyalists. On the plague marine I now need to add a little more 'wear and tear' to make the main body in keeping with the resin arms (dodgy casting - lots of bubbles = pus cavities).

Cheers Laney

That is insane!!!
Fantastic nmm effect on the true scale space marine. The power sword is insane, you have to do a tutorial on that!
Cant wait to see how your nmm silver will turn out.
The nurgle blood angel is fantastic, the G.S work is awesome.
Keep it up!

We should make a compliment-insult contest to describe Laney's work.

I would start by saying that looking at the Plague Blood Angel makes me feel with the same awe and wonderment as seeing a toddler pick up dog poop in a park; makes me curious of how to do it... but know that I can NEVER do it!

Incredible work!

Hi All,

Here is my latest addition to the plague marine version of my truescale blood angels (the plan is to do five of each - then maybe think of a suitable diorama to put them in). So far we have Septicaemius and Varicellus. This 'beauty' is Brother Fluxus...







I will be getting rid of mould lines and adding extra weathering on the plastic parts before I undercoat.

Love feedback as always

Amazing conversion... without paint is SCREAMS (moans?) Nurgle. It is insane! For a sense of proportion... how about a crow over a skull or something?




That model puts Dozer to shame!


(PS: I'm trying to see if Dozer falls for the lame taunting and makes a model like that! He is THAT gullible!)

Not so much a truescale as a blue smurf (the only one I have or ever will paint) - I originally painted him to sell on ebay (when the iron halo icon was finished), but I actually found I... liked... the stupid smurf. Thought I'd post him in lew of any real truescale progress...





I was quite pleased with the freehand on his shoulder pad - simple though it is.
