    Re: "Artscale" Space Marines (a truescale project log)

    This 5 man Grey Knight squad are to based on Grey Knights immediately after the Heresy. As such they have Nemesis Force Weapons in the style of those on 1st edition Grey Knights, ie: Halberds with storm bolters built in.





    I opted to use the older metal Terminators as a base for the legs as I find them to be much better posed than the plastic ones which seem to me to be a bit too widely spread. Adding GS to metal is more difficult than adding to plastic, I'm not entirely certain why that is but I would advise beginners to use plastic models as a base.

    The Grey Knight plastic torsos are unusually deep compared to regular Space Marines so I used no spacer in between the front and back. The NFW has had its blade removed and attached lower down so that a cut down bolter would fit atop of the blade. The bolter barrel had to be replaced so that it was in a better position. The added =I= symbol also fit perfectly and the cable was my first try out of my new TubeTool from Masq-Mini and I'm very pleased with it.

    The backpacks are nearly done and just require some detailing. The final piece of the puzzle is adding the arms. I've lengthened the arms (using plasticard spacers) and greenstuffed over them to add the necessary size. When I'm working on individual bits like this and I need to put them somewhere for the GS to cure without getting damaged I use a large blob of poster BluTac (sometimes I also add temporary pins to hold small pieces by).



    Should have another update of the squad very soon, with a size comparison.

    You should use this Scibor model as base if you will do the sanguinius model. http://www.sciborminiatures.com/en_,...changel_01.jpg and really cool models by the way.

    The Nemesis force weapons are really cool. I'll be doing a Sanguinius model from that base but not going to pus a helmet I'll make more hair on his head and going to put blood angel icon on the chest his shoulder pads and his knees.Then I'm going to replace the ork head with a winged shield from scibor.And maybe add a spear to his back and a grey knight small shield on him
    I already have rules for him in dakkadakka another forum I have two users there.

    Sounds good. Does anyone know what Sangiunius' traditional weapon is? I assume it's the sword he's most often depicted with, but I remember reading about a spear somewhere?

    Justicar


    shoulder mounted psycannon

    This is the first Grey Knight squad I've done and I think they've come out rather respectable. I had quite a specific brief for the Justicar to resemble a model I did a couple of years ago. I also go the chance to add a shoulder mounted psycannon (I have a bit of a thing for shoulder mounted ranged weapons, not sure why). Took quite a while to make it fit nicely, but I think it works. I wanted the psycannon to be pointing in the same direction as the Justicar's bionic eye, as if the two are linked. The rest of the squad came together quite naturally from using mostly Grey Knight components. The whole squad is pretty self explanatory to anyone who's seen my work before.

    I had abandoned the idea of build a full Grey Knights army for myself, but I'm rather keen now to have a small force in future, and I'll probably try and replicate that Justicar for my own collection.

    Sanguinius uses a spear named Spear of Telesto and a sword named Blade Encarmine. I love the GK with the psycannon on the shoulder great idea. But he is sometimes seen with A shield.

    Oh my god. I've always been a fan of your work here but those grey knights are beyond belief. Superb mate. Wish I had the funds for some. One day when I'm not a student...

    The grey knights are amazing, your technique is near flawless now, you seem to be turning your 'true-scale' hand to almost any variant. amazing.

    Superb Grey Knights! Those really look their part! Real Bad Boys - but in a good sense.

    Thank you guys.

    For the foreseeable future Calgar is a no go. The main reason being time but also because two powerfists are incredibly awkward to pose effectively.

    You should know though that I do have definite plans now for 2 Primarchs - Sangiunius and Alpahrius.

    I can't take on new commissions or offer you a proper quote at the moment, but most special character models tend to be priced about the 130-150 region.

    I will definitely be working on a Kharn later in the year, so you never know I might be able to make a second one

    You know what you REALLY need to do, is drop all of your other projects and make a true-scale dreadnought. I don't know how the master of True-scale has managed to overlook this haha. Heres the best example there is!

    One day it'll happen.

    My own favourite scaled up Dread is by wargamer43210: http://www.warseer.com/forums/showth...55#post4992355

    I was so impressed I considered asking him build one for me on commission but at the end of the day I prefer my personal miniatures to be my own handiwork.

    __________________________________________________ ______

    I really wasn't sure how well this model was going to turn out, but now I've finished it I have to admit that it pains me to part with him. The legs are built up over regular Terminator legs but rather than repose the legs I simply based him on a slight slope, which made a huge difference. Making Mark VIII armour requires a little more attention to detail but isn't so different from Mark VII to be a big issue. Most of the rest of the model is standard procedure, building a base model on which to sculpt a "skin".
    The shield is a FW Black Templar Storm Shield with all the detail removed. To do this I first removed as much detail as I could with clippers and a knife being careful not to damage the shield itself. Because of the harmful nature of resin dust I took some fine grade wet&amp;dry paper and sanded it off under a running tap (not hot water) until I had a smooth finish. This way the dust is just washed away harmlessly, leaving your lungs intact.
    I didn't have a second Deathwatch terminator pad (found in the box sets) spare so I made one using a Blu-Stuff one piece mold (coming soon to a webstore near you!).
    Everything else is pretty self explanatory, the Thunder Hammer head is from Lysander obviously. The helm is also magnetized with an alternative bare head, also allows easier painting.
    As I can't keep this mini for my own collection, I'll be using it as a guideline for my own Company Champion when I finally get time for my own army.





    I also posted a Mini-Tutorial to go with this on my website on how make make the Imperial Laurel, someone might find useful I'm sure: http://masteroftheforge.com
