    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    Thanks!

    No new progress to show just yet - mostly 'cause my free time's currently being eaten by SW:TOR. _ However! I just got some stuff in from Forgeworld, mwa ha ha. Here's a hint as to some of my future projects...

    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    Everyone likes big tanks.

    Sorry about the delay in updating! A combination of classes, SW:ToR, and Mass Effect 3 launching has proven... rather distracting lately, heh. Anyway, despite all that, some more progress has been made!

    Kamuzu! Pavoni, apothecary (even though I can't take apothecaries using the Chaos codex, shhh) and generally grumpy bastard, heh. Still need to base him, obviously, and debating whether or not I should do the lightning effect on his claws. Opinions?



    And Nassor, Pyrae heavy weapons specialist, still very much in-progress. I'm not sure if I want to keep the round earpieces on the sides of his helmet - thinking about slicing those off. Thoughts?

    I'd leave the round earpieces. I like the asymmetry of Kamuzu's helm. Good work.

    Thanks! I suppose the earpieces just bug me 'cause they make me think of Leia's hairbun things, aheh.

    Wow, just wow! you sir are a man after my own heart! You do great work! I really like the terminators pre-heresy look and the bike is very cool as well. I eagerly await more-both in this log and in your story: Strange Enemies, Strange Allies. Keep up the good work!

    They are looking really good. Excellent individuality to each model.

    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    Thank you all!

    @Nazrax: I'm glad you like my story as well as my models!

    @eltanko: Cheers! Individuality was definitely something I was aiming for with these guys - they've all got their own names and personalities, heh. Good to know that it's coming across.

    A bit more work's been done on the Terminators, but I have no camera atm and won't again for the next two weeks or so. So here's something else instead. XD

    Testing a potential pose for my Contemptornought! And trying to figure out how many magnets I'm gonna need. XD Twin Kheres assault cannons here, though without the barrels atm. I've also got a pair of close combat arms, so I'm trying to get a pose that'll work for both types of arms and any combination of them.



    And a fairly quick pic I whipped up today, mostly just to test colour layout and potential modifications. Easier to work them out digitally first than on the actual model itself, hehe. Not sure about the gold studs or the chest beetle - I'm tempted to just leave the Imperial Eagle as the chest icon. I also didn't realise till now that there's no real trim on the Contemptor model. Hmm. Might have to add my own trim to the shoulder pads at least. Also kind of tempted to make the head crest HUGE. Or at least, a bit taller than I have it now.

    Thoughts/opinions?

    I like the gold studs. I think that that the beetle on the chest would look good but so does the eagle. Also, cool picture.

    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    Thanks! I'll probably decide on it when I actually paint the thing, heh.

    Anyway! I managed to get hold of another camera for now - quality's not great, but hey, macro, that's all I need. So, another little update!


    Base for Kamuzu. I hate waiting for greenstuff to dry, sigh.


    One day this guy will get his head. One day... XD


    Still need to work on the boltgun parts and paint the shoulder cloths, then work on highlights and other details some more, but getting there!

    Latest termie update looks good, and looking forward to seeing progress on the contemptor.

    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    Thanks! I'm making a conscious effort not to touch the Contemptor any more until I've finished my Terminators, heh. Otherwise the poor buggers will never get done.

    Finally got my camera back! Not much progress to show atm though, mostly because I was waiting for my camera so I could do a step-by-step of how I paint my white cloth. I'll also be doing a step-by-step of how I paint my lava bases too, at some point.


    Now that his cloth areas are done, Asim here just needs the boltgun areas highlighted, and power/lightning effects added to his blade. I also need to finish off the eye in his belt.


    Nassor here is almost done - just need to highlight the boltgun areas a bit more, and work up the scorching on the nozzles of the heavy flamer. I'm also not sure what to do with the fingers of his chainfist - leave 'em blue as they are, or do them in boltgun as well? And either way, should I add lightning effects to them too?

    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    Ugh. On the final stretch of finishing my Terminators... and my fine detail brush chooses now to die horribly. So. Completion of the terminators is delayed until I can get myself a new paintbrush, sigh.

    Got the base for Kamuzu finished at least though, along with a tutorial on how I do my lava bases.



    And just for the hell of it, here's a pic of my workbox. A Rhino box repurposed to hold my paints, modelling stuff, random bits and current models in progress, so I can take it all with me wherever I go. Even got an empty paint pot I can use as a mini water pot, hehehe.

    Nice GS work and a great paint job, the Terminators look awesome! Keep up the good work.

    Re: A Thousand Sons: Pre- and Post-Heresy Log

    @Master Commander Ajax: Thank you! I certainly intend to, hehe.

    And now, finally, after about five months, the whole Terminator squad is finished! At least, until I find things that need fixing, anyway.

    I've got a lo~ve~ly bunch of terminators, deedly deet dee, here they are all standing in a row!


    Jabari, Athanaean, rather quiet and tends to bide his time in the background, possibly plotting your demise.


    Zuberi, Athanaean, and a bloody talkative bastard... as long as you can hear telepathy.


    Nassor, Pyrae and heavy weapons specialist with a penchant for setting things on FIRE.


    Kamuzu, Pavoni apothecary and damn grumpy bastard.


    Asim, Raptora and a stolid old codger.


    I'm so glad they're finally done! Now I just have to decide what I'm working on next... x_x

    The terminators look awesome both individually and as a unit. Keep up the good work.
