Here's my WIP bloodthirster, he is both inq.scale bloodthirster and 40k scale giant bloodthirster la FW.

He's made of Green stuff and Terracotta.

When he is complete, I'm going to try to compete in GD.

Any questions? (Yes, IT IS Trogdors head in the background of the first pic)

From what I can tell he looks good! I'll be keeping my eye on him!

I think I'll delete the 888 in the forehead.

Why's he got three arms? It makes him look like a Slaanesh daemon who turned to Khorne!

While it's well done, you need to make scratch-built minis so they appear to look like GW had their desginers create them, and anything less wont stand a chance.

I can't tell from these pictures the quality, please post better ones and I will comment on the mini.

He has 2 wings and 2 arms!

When finnished, it will look like a bald bloodthirster/Anthony Hopkins hybrid, that does look "GW".

I can't send better quality pics for the moment, because of cellfone-computer problems.

Hm, good luck, man. The head is very promising now that you've exchanged the "888" for a Khornate symbol. Some more anger-wrinkles and more furrowed eyebrows would go a long way to make it better, too.

Yes, more anger and bloodthirst in the face, I'd say. Good to see people who dare to go scratchbuilding, it's really a scary prospect. :)

Scary prospect indeed!

On the last pic I think the face looks angry enough, but it's probably most because of the light.

More anger! Anger! ANGER! Think "DEEEAAATH!!! BLOOOOOD!!! KILL!!!" and I think you'll get the right expression in his face :)

i feel his face is too human like, not enough daemon

also, not the best photos for this, but his proportions look a bit off, or weird at least

also which GD will this be for?

Angryier eyebrow with small horns/spikes coming out of them?

Angryier eyebrow with small horns/spikes coming out of them?

That would be a great idea I think! The expression he has now is more like "uh?".

I must say as lilljonas though, I admire you for scrachbuilding!

The head looks like something straight out of british folklore....which is a good thing.

Doesn't the face remind of Hannibal Lecter.

That was the first thing that came to my head when I saw the face first time (After the orginal face was finnished).

he sort of reminds me of the one character from mortal combat with four arms. which is perfect for khorne. will he have wings?

06-04-2007, 20:12
oh man, is that a cardboard tank in the background of the fourth picture!? thats pretty sweet.

He will have 2 arms and 2 wings, the upper pair is the wings, and more pics of 619 "Emelie" (Inq.scale baneblade (For those who doesn't understand the word Inq.scale; it meens that the model is 2x the size (4x area, 8x mass) of same 40k model)) can be found here together with my other Inq.scale models: http://s12.photobucket.com/albums/a221/AlfredoPistoleto/Inq/

damn, thats awesome. and my game groups complain about using space marines in inquisitor. you have a TANK!

inq.serge
06-04-2007, 22:01
And not any tank, but a Baneblade battletank.

Should I give him Bloodthirster style dreadlocks? And a dreadlock beard? And dreadlock mouchtache?

1000post! Woot!

Serge FTW!

Good body, but TBH the face doesn't look too good; build up the cheekbones, the chin and general bone structure. Also try to give him an expression.
Take a look at Angrath for inspiration.

Very good progress on the sculpting, liking the muscle tone on the torso

Holy crap that thing is... huge!

I love how the face is turning out, I just hope he's got more 'anger' in him, rather than something that's benevolent or controlled-warrior look. Kinda the whole 'GRARGHHH AGRARHGA GRARGHH ARTARGHARGHARAGHHHHH' => translates to "i'm a gonna kill youz foolz".

I think the pic is from some warhammeresque thing. The Khornate guy seems inspiring, what should/should I not add to my bloodthirster from this pic?

LOL Vattendroppe - sorry bro, I don't speak mad l33t like you!

@ Serge - although an imposing picture, I personally don't like the 'lizard' features the demon has... I prefer my bloodthirsters to be like the classic descriptions... that feral and bestial face with vestiges of human features somewhere there. Dog faced warrior gods, and muscle bound brutes... that kind of image. Something that is innately human... but pushed to the extremes of absolute fury and rage. The demon in that photo doesn't do justice in my opinion of what is meant to be Khorne... emotions incarnate!

Write 5 instead of LOL, much more underground ;) Try to figure out why 5=LOL also!

Oh, going OffT, sry... Anyway, I really like that kneecap (?) you've made, serge. Cleaner and better than everything else you've done on this! Meaning improvement!

LoL.

Lol in 1337 = 101

101

101 in binary = 5

5

Conclusion : Lol = 5.

Is that what God looks like?

Seriously, the first image in post 24 made me think - that's zeus. Im liking the facial hair.

GOD FTW!

I believe the hand holding the axe is a little small. The dreads for the mustache and eyebrows do turn the face a little messy, beyond the "desirable" messy I'd say. The face looks a little "fat" and human and less feral. You could work on the nose and teeth to change that. Besides the eyes aren't very defined.

Nice torso, nice scale, nice try your taking! Hope youy finish this project. Hope to see more soon

Is there any more pics?
Did you ever finish the model?
Can we get an update pleae :D ?

I've made some changes since the latest, and finally have time to keep work on it. (Maybe) More this weekend!

Don't forget to check out my other project log! (Which will also be updated next weekend (maybe) ).

Since I'm still running for the position of Design-team sculptor, thim model might not win the Slayer Sword. (If I get hired, but then, I'll aim for the Staff Slayer Sword*).

* Staff-slayer sword. Hi hi hi.

You won't win any type of slayer sword if you keep those dreadlocks on it.... :/

Great choice on doing the knee-pad wierd-fantasy-style, there's not enough of that around. I wish some company would return to the D&D cartoon-esque and John Blanche in the 80's style.
