    Re: CMDante's 40k log - Orks? Scouts? this could end in Chaos!



    So far I've begun to work on filling out the gaps in the clothing. I've GS'd over the cadian torso belt trying to keep the clothing flowing. Still needs some tidying up and will get a "wash" with watered down milliput to smooth the joins where it meets the plastic. I've also started the hand on the lasgun, still needs tidied up a little but its getting there. On the back I've left the strap down the spine but it needs tidied up a little round the edges too to make it look natural, most of this will be covered by a backpack anyway though.

    Only filled out one leg so far and it too needs a little tidying (see a theme developing here?! I did say it was early stages!). With the heads, I've done up two different ones, both will have the same style grotesque though, at the moment I'm building the basic shapes before the detail goes on, still lots to do here. The flagellants heads will be great for this project but it bugs me they dont have eyes.

    Do you think the lasgun needs a strap over the shoulder or does it look ok as is?

    Anyway, let me know what you think folks.

    Cheers,

    Dante

    Here's a few pics of where I'm at with him now. As you can see I added a strap (needs a little tidy up once the GS dries) and stuck the shoulder pad on too. The hand got a little more work and is almost there now. Also added some rips to the trousers similar to the image and did a little more work on the face, adding an ear and working more on the nose etc.

    Thanks for your support fella's. More pics soon, next step is to do more on the head and finish off the detail work on the body and legs. Any ideas for other details to add? Want it to look natural and not over the top, bit like the artwork.

    Cheers,

    Dante

    I wouldn't add too much more detail, to be honest. Some pouches for ammo, some grenades, a backpack maybe and that's it. Keep it simple.

    Re: CMDante's 40k log - Orks? Scouts? this could end in Chaos!

    I plan on adding pouches etc as you mention. I also plan on adding a small chain with severred hands (like the image I'm taking inspiration from) and a khorne icon to the, as yet unattached left shoulder pad. Aside from this I think most of the detail will come out in the painting.

    I've been purchasing some source books lately for inspiration and came across one called "The Imperial Munitorum Manual", the description I read made it sound pretty interesting but I want to know if anyone who has a copy, or has had a good look through one, would recommend it?

    I found a copy for about 7 so what do you reckon? Just bought the "The Inquisition" book too so looking forward to that.

    More soon!

    Cheers,

    Dante

    Ok, as promised here are the latest set of pics. Quite small updates but it was mainly a case of fine tuning what was already there.

    To explain whats changed, I've added some rivets to the right shoulder pad, the khorne logo and shoulder pad to the left arm, altered the knife handle a bit (needs tidying once GS dries) and gave the nose a little tidy up.

    How does the khorne logo look? Also, should I add an ear to the left hand side of the head or just give it a SM style headset piece?

    Cheers,

    Dante

    Looking good! The Khorne symbol is great. And I'd add some headset piece to this guy, since that would enhance their elite status some more, IMO.

    Thanks. Still not 100% sure about what to do with the ear, I'll have a play about with it some more tonight.

    Impressive detail work with the greenstuff. Your lines and surfaces are so clean!
    edit: Is the Imperial Munitorium Manuel the one that's primer size (i.e., only a little bigger than a mass-market paperback, though hard cover)? If so, that might not offer a lot in the way of inspiration. IRRC, the illustrations are simple line drawings, very basic. Nothing like the larger "campaign" style books (e.g., the one on the Black Crusade; another on the Sabbat Crusade...), which have large, full-color illustrations.
