Got some base coating done this weekend. Getting there slowly.

And we're back to being insanely huge.

OK, here we go. Took a while:

Just want to draw attention to the Intruder conversion I did to match the Intruder you get with the artwork on the box:

I think I need to go back and clean up her paintjob but I like where it's headed.

My Limited Edition Miranda Ashcroft was honoured for her sacrifice.

A better shot of my YuJing (with Daofei and Kanren added):

And finally, image widths be damned...Tarik...The Man...Mansuri:

Nice work. The sword looks great.

Also, I'm an Aleph player now apparently.

I needed a "big dog" model for McMurrough (Mercenary werewolf) for my Corregidor army ("The vertical smile of Corregidor") but the skirted one held no appeal. I wanted one wearing pants.

This narrowed it down to either one of the dog warrior box ones (bit order from Chokkonit), or the USAriadnan devil dog one (2 models, I can dispose of the unwanted antipode later).

Settled for the latter one. Since this one was holding a ginormous shotgun, I needed to make some modifications to it (as McMurderwolf doesn't have one).

IPB Image

Sculpted up a new left hand with pointing finger (his original left is still on the shotgun, where it is moulded.) and did a press-mould of a 40k ork hand with a chain rifle.

IPB Image

I'm no fan of tartan at the best of times (too many traumatic high school issues) so as a concession to his "Scottishness" (McMurrough is a Caledonian after all, first name Tearlach), I decided to give him something reminiscent of that old punk wardrobe staple. The "tartan bondage trousers" - large red and black checks.

IPB Image

I have neither the fine motor control to paint tartan (or eyes) nor the vision for the close-up work, so I'm going to call him "done-ish" at this point.

I didn't say "no motor control" just no "fine motor control". I severed the radial nerve in my left thumb in 1989 and though the injury has healed, the nerve has never fully recovered (I'm left handed). I can't hold a brush steady enough to do eyes and really fine detail since.

I sculpted the pointing hand. It wasn't that difficult. Separate finger "snakes" over a palm.

I did a PRESS-mould of the chain rifle hand (used some Green-stuff for the mould, then pressed fresh stuff in and squidged it. Then cleaned it up with a fresh blade. GW showed how to do it in an old journal.) - not really sculpting. The only major difference I did was put stiff wire into the moulding afterwards, because GS 50/50 never fully hardens.

Haha, excuses.

I have a Haqq rifle still in a GS mould that I have failed to extract over the last 3 years or so, so I'm stick with my original assessment that you're a talented mofo.

I welcome death. How about you, are you prepared?

Ha ha you need to use lube on the moulding.

There's always time for it. biggrin.gif

31 years in the hobby - I've learned a thing or three over them is all I can say. From learning how to resin cast and fibreglass stuff, to metal casting (white metal and bronze). Also accumulated a few friends from various industries who've taught me stuff.

@Master chris:

I can't imagine your reaction when you discover that my two sculpting tools for that hand were a dental pick and a #11 xacto blade with a broken tip.

You have to leave GS to semi-harden before continuing to work on it.
