Thanks for the advice. The trouble with greenstuff is it takes ages to cure (even when warmed), and procreate cures almost too fast Shocked . I'm sure practice will helpme get to grips with it!

Basing and painting tonight if I get a chance.

Looking forward to more photos. Your work is great! Wish I had even a fraction of your talent sculpting.

Excellent (grey) green stuffing. He is the epitome of cool.
Not sure if this will help but I find a craft knife blade works well if you use light strokes when greenstuffing.
How are you planning on painting him? Can't wait to see him finished.

Thanks for all the support guys.

Painting wise...
I've painted the cloak and flaming parts of the shoulder pads is a pale blue/purple mix, with the faces picked out with green and red washes - I'll be honest, I'm not that happy with the result Sad . So I either plough on with the next stages, purple trimmed armour and darkened gold or start over. Not sure which to do - keep you posted.

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the double post, but I thought I would post some pics of the cloak and some blood angels I modelled a couple of weeks ago...

The Cloak...



The Blood Angels - Captain, Sanguinary Priest on Bike, Sanguinary Priest Jump Pack (These aren't truescale)



Death Company, SG bits + Bike = SP on a Bike



Simple sanguinary priest kitbash...



Apologies for the dodgy pics - I was trying to be quick!

Cheers Laney

I don't know whether someone already mentioned it but you can prolong the curing time by adding a little amount of Fimo soft putty to the mixture. It also smoothens the material a bit, maybe it is easier to shape it, just give it a try. A ratio of 2 parts black/blue, 2 parts white/yellow and 1 part fimo (or slightly less) works best.

Thanks - I built the three models (plus a version of Brother Corbulo) specifically for a game against a Grey Knights army. The chalice on the bike is a resin cast of the chalice artifact in the Space Hulk game. There was no way I was going to butcher that piece, so I had to cast it (And I wasn't buying a second copy of Space Hulk - tempted though I was!).

I wanted the blood angel captain to swoop down on enemies - I might raise the stone slightly.

The bike guy got blasted by a land raider redeemer in turn 1 of the only game I've ever used him in!

@ Skraag: Thanks - I'll try that I have some fimo about the place for making greenstuff moulds.

Cheers Laney

Yeah, it was a bit annoying. Revenge came on turn 2 when a great reserves roll and a spot on deep strike (with the help of Descent of Angels), meant I had 2 melta shots (both penetrating hits) and the redeemer went boom! affraid (Now that's blood angels!).

I hadn't played 40k in a while and the strategical strike element of the game was very cool (for both of us - lots of deep striking). I almost considered modelling a Storm Raven Gunship just for the battle (and a furioso librarian dreadnought - he's still half finished), but I ran out of time. I have the bits from an abortive thunderhawk project I started last year that I might eventually turn into a cool scratchbuilt storm raven (or wait for the kit to come out in a year or two!)

More pics to follow

This is TOO MUCH!! I can't get over the 1st two photos... I honestly can't remember anything else. I'm trying... all I see is a cape with tortured faces coming out of it (SOOOOO COOOOLLL!!!!), wings (with faces coming out of them), a bike (with faces coming out of it), and Space Marines (with faces coming out of it)... hell, now I see faces coming out of EVERYTHING... I'm traumatized!

I will revisit the thread another time... I will enjoy the tortured faces... WOW!

@ Mordheimer - cheers for the positives. Though I'm not sure about 'enjoying' the screaming faces affraid ! They were very easy to do - I just copied Scibor's make a face in five minutes tutorial (on his website), but did it quickly/roughly, and stretched the mouth down into a scream.

@ Edward: the big chainsword is appropriate for khorne - unfortunately it looks a little silly in the pictures. I need to either scrap it and put in a chain axe, shorten it slightly or make it a clearly two handed c-sword (my original idea thinking of the gabriel seth model). I'm going to also cut out the front procreate work and sculpt a bare abdomen and chainmail 'loincloth' - I'm thinking very much of Kharn the Betrayer. The bare arm is going to have one more orky armour piece on it and he will have an old school plasma pistol (chains evident throughout).

Lots to do!

Laney cheers

Great model. Man you make it look easy. You know what got me? The NECK. I always imagine that they had some kind of 'undersuit' that connects to the helmet.

Apparently the same thing is on this Marine's mind... 'Wow... this is one big chainsword!' Just Kidding
