I love that old Termie-Capt Model. I have one of my own, sitting in a box somewhere.

Beautiful Paint job!

Thanks for hte feedback. He is nicely posed - a bit short though compared to other terminators (partly the pose). I got given him, with a box full of other minis, after careful paint stripping it only took me a year to start painting him! I'll get the banner icon finished soon and he is then destined for a display cabinet.

More work on true truescale coming - including some interesting ideas (hopefully) on traitor marines - Emperor's Children, Death Guard (gonna have to be white), World Eaters and Thousand Sons (or at least their respective chaos marks) for a future chaos cult (or two). The Blood Angels haven't been shelved - in fact I intend to work on them after I finish posting - GS filling is just sooo boring!

Are you going to try the pre-heresy paint schemes? I'd love to see the white and blue World Eaters, as well as the off-white for the Death Guard.

I might just give it a go - but I'm not sure about the freehand on the world eater symbol!

Thanks - he just needs a quick brush and he'll be done (give it a year or so!). The idea of doing one of each of the major marks got me getting the remnants of my modelling putty out last night and this is the beginning of a tzeentch (possibly thousand son) sorcerer in truescale (I may just have to buy a backpack!)

Anyway here he is... the GS is very rough - I am probably going to smooth over with greystuff and then hide all the bad bits with a swirling cloak

Components used so far... head - chaos knight, body - sanguinary guard, loin cloth - chaos terminator lord, legs - terminator (I trimmed of the hip guards on him to make the armour look more authentically 'Power' - more work - but I'm pleased with the result so far.

Here's the tzeentchian sorcerer taken a bit further - the cloak is scratch built - using an aluminium mesh folded into shape (I'm going to recoat the cloak with a smooth cover of grey stuff to finish it).






The staff is based on an Adeptus Custodes staff (taken from the battle on Terra itself - during the Horus Heresy) and the shield/storm shield is based on a normal storm shield hand part and a chaos knight shield (I liked the librarianesque front - horned skull).

DUDE! You are getting out of hand! I think we need you to start quoting prices for commisions... WOW! That is some kick-ass work. Is the cape going to be out of Guardsmen skin? LOL! AMAZING!

Cheers for the positives. I was fortunate to have all the right bits in the box at the time.

@ Mordheimer - - that is a great idea - all i'd need to do is sculpt a few howling faces on the cape and stick some zombie hands hanging off it and hey presto! a genuine guardskin cloak!

I also want a big flaming chaos icon floating above him - or is that too much?

I've made a bit more progress since that post - but I'll wait until the modelling is done before I post pics of him again - I have made the shoulder guards with those cool neck guard bits and moulded flame stuff on the pads - plus put an smoothish coat on the outer side of the cloak.

More to come - this thread is almost as much fun for me as the Varangians (which I will officially complete this Summer and post individual pics of)

I was going for a tzeentch sorcerer (possibly a different looking thousand son) - but he could be a world eater - though the flames I just sculpted on his shoulder pads might not work so well Smile .

affraid Whoa!
Excellent painting on the ultra marine that power sword looks great.
That chaos guy is amazing, great G.S work and a very cool pose, definitely do the flayed skin cloak that would look scary cool.

Great idea using mesh as a basis for the cloak! I might borrow that idea someday!
How thick is that mesh? 1mm?
Do you remember where you aquired the mesh?

Very good modelling and painting in general! Keep us updated please!

Cheers
Bernhard

@ Citizen Khaine: Thanks for the feedback. I picked up the mesh from a local modelling shop in the UK (radio controlled cars, planes, airfix and such). The thickness is about 1mm and its expanded aluminium mesh 5" by 12" sheet (I think its used for patching up holes in glass fibres constructions). The company that made it was K and S Engineering in Chicago. Hope this helps!

I wasn't going to post any more pics but I mcouldn't resist the flaming guardskin cloak (still a WIP)...

Wow, cloak and shoulder patch with the screaming faces are awesome, pure evil!!! Twisted Evil

Great work, you're getting better and better with the putty!

(Thanks also for the hint with the mesh, will try to aquire some)

Cheers Guys!

Here he is (still without a name and still officially a WIP)... Basing needs doing and then a cool paint job - I'm thinking of nicking some ideas from the daemon prince (crackly purples and pale blues) in white dwarf this month or an article I saw on the GW website about a reaver titan (beaten bronze).

Anyway here is a favoured son of the changer of ways...








What do you reckon?

Great work, looks awesome! The hands on the cloak were a good addition!

Just a minor point: is it too late to modify the plastic loin cloth thing?
After all the effort you took with the cloak that detail looks a bit static.
Don't want to talk you into it though, it really is a magnificent model as it is right now!!!

Cheers

@ Citizen Khaine: I had thought about that when I took the pictures and even thought of fluffy ways to explain it away... The cloak being a living mass of lost souls, twisting in the flames of the immaterium (and all that), while the loin cloth was made of some armoured flexible metal (denser). However, I'd probasbly have to explain that to anyone with a keen eye for detail. I'll consider it - but I'm desperate to get paint on him!

@ Edward: The GS is rougher than I would like - but I'm improving - I'm goping to try using tough rubber colour shapers for large smooth parts rather than taht metal tools I've currenly got (smooth and sharp inorganic shapes are the hardest - but practice makes perfect - i wonder if they do training on sculpting at GW - I'd personally be willing to pay). Not even thought about a name yet (Severus hmm...)

Anyway Thanks

Laney cheers

The rubber tools are really good for getting smooth surfaces, but not good for sculpting details. I use a normal metal shaper for the sculpting, then when the putty has almost cured, I "polish" the surfaces with a silicone tool (Clay Shaper) by working over the flat parts applying some pressure (can't explain it better).

Works nicely, the timing is crucial though.
