Its been a long time since ive sat down at my modelling bench, as with most modellers I think im going through a phase of low interest. Which is disappointing as I know how much I enjoy it when I sit down.. its just getting there.

Over the last 2 weeks ive started working on 2 models randomly, not for an army, but probubly inspired by the HH books. I really want to be getting on with them and kick start myself back into productive hobbying. Ive decided To show them here to try and get some interest and motivation, and drive me forwards.

Anyway here they are,

The traitor guard is based on a sketch done by a friend, and the possessed was started because it felt rude not to get stuck into the new
plastics.


EDIT >> not sure why the image is showing as a link. Any ideas?

Great stuff - you have an eye for natural poses.

Hang on... is that the shinguard of a titan that the possesed is standing on?
also, you seem to have ,ade the new possesed models look even nicer. the pose is natural, but dramatic, and the model doesnt look to silly, like a lot of the preveiwed possessed have been.

The traitor is lovely, simply sculpting, but enough to hide the fact is is a cadian with zombie bitz. the scout knife seems perfect for him as well.

very nice! NB

I want to see 'em painted (preferably red'n'grey :D). And given that this is the second time you put some FW bit on a base, I feel inclined to ask, if youŽll ever do an Ork army and base all the grots on destroyed super heavies, Rob...
Seriously: If we ever compete in a tale of X again, IŽll have to start thinking about something really grandiose. Just give me a couple of years to beat those...

Thanks, the possessed legs already come in nice poses ive just semi rotated the left and edged it out a little. The zombie is based on a drawing, so I can take no credit for that pose.

Yes it is part of a shinguard from a titan, you 2 types in the Mars pattern box, this is part of one of my spares. After looking over the sprues a couple of times before deciding my pose, I decided that 2 of the arms would be a bit "silly" also, so the sword arm is from the normal CSM sprue.

Its based on a drawing, and still WiP, im thinking of shaping it a little, but the basic features fit well with the drawing.

Red'n'Grey, It may just happen, worked well with your army, and I was impressed.

Ive done a few extra bits, but nothing substantial enough to post. Does anyone have any ideas why my picture didnt embed into the post, and only linked?

Cheers athamas, the img tags were there, it was actually photobucket that foxed me.. they have added a new top line to the links for images, rather than having the URL top, only noticed as I was about to post an image to show the img tags there :D Result :d

athamas
04-08-2007, 14:43
hmmm, i always use the img taged one4s anyway from photobucket...

Great minis, the pose of the possessed is great, very menacing. If I played Chaos I'd copy that in a heartbeat. Please do share more when you get it done.

That's some great looking sculpting there. I can't wait to see the finished product.

I like the sword on that possessed model. It kind of looks like you took inspiration from the LotR Uruk-hai blade. Except with the pointy end forward.

Merceus

Holy!!! *******!!!! **** how!?!?

The sculptuing on that head is brilliant? Is the horn from the Possessed box?

How many of the zombie-renegades and possessed will you be doing?

keep it up :D

Heero-Severus
20-08-2007, 22:34
These are all one offs, that will go to GD2007 with me. And probubly end up on ebay afterwards.

The head needs alot of work, and doesnt look likely to fit in with the GD2007 time frame i have. I would like to get an entry for the duel catagory sorted aswell. But he will be finished.

Merceus
20-08-2007, 22:39
Aw damn, well I guess doing lots to this standard can be a bit overwhelming... either way, hope these few go well...

These are looking very very nice. What type of putty did you use to sculpt the detail? is it better than greenstuff? These should look really nice once they are completed, and I hope you do well at GD2007.

Heero-Severus

Ive just about finished the traitor guard. Im quite happy with him. Good enough so that i feel that i made an effort for GD. Probubly plenty of tweaks to be done, but this is as he is before purity seal and dulcote. I thought it best to take a picture before spraying, incase he turns out like an abominable snowman :D

Thats the dream, but i think im a way off from achieving it yet :) still he was alot of fun to do, working to an original artwork for the first time was rewarding. Cheers muchly for all the good comments :)

So after a few layers of varnish, a couple of touch ups and some rework here and there. he is pretty much finished, He is mounted on a plinth of machined aluminium, and I will probubly give it a title plaque. I like the idea of calling it D.O.A. how does that sound to you folks? Ive also added the original artwork, so you can see where I was coming from with this.

Wow, I am really glad to see someone else is doing traitor guard. Mine aren't as good as yours, but I'm still having fun with the whole concept. I bastardized zombies from fantasy and catachans. Also, the plasma guys were made with unused plasma turrets from an old demolisher.

Looking very nice indeed mate. Im looking forward to the possessed.
