Straying a bit today from the nicely painted models...

I'm working on a commission currently for a truescaled veteran squad, and the client and i are trying to decide between 32mm and 40mm bases. It's a bit of a mix because we're using my style (builder-pattern?) and mixing it with some of the new Doghouse pattern, using Tartaros legs and torso fronts...

Thoughts?

Hello? Echo...o..o...

If anyone reads this...


On the agenda today:



I am currently working on this IW commission. We settled on 32mm bases for now, and this is where we are:





We also recently got a commission for a small Deathwatch army. While we wait for the models to arrive, I happened to have a truescaled deathwatch guy lying around from an earlier test, so I sent that to rob to bust out a test model for the client to approve.







This is what he finished with, and I really like it (as does the client!)



Sadly it's not a truescale commission, but I'm still looking forward to building them and magnetising every last one!



Also on Rob's bench, is a nice Macharius Commission. 3 of the beasts!











This time, I'm the client! He's painting them up to match my Vultures and Thunderbolt, it all combines to form the armoured division for my Guard. I'm sending him some transfers tomorrow so he can carry on!

A little update today, I made a lot of progress on the mk3 veterans, they're about 80% done. They need some more accessories and one needs his armpit greenstuffing!

Those IW vets looks pretty cool.... have you got any close ups of the back of the legs - I'm intrigued on how you're going to do the staggered armour plating.
I've got about 100 of these Mk3's waiting about to be made, but every time I look at them I'm disappointed they're not true scale (like a parent who's kid tried really hard in footy, but always fails to connect the tackle), and yet at the same time can never be arsed to put that much effort in!

the big fucking tanks look damn amazing!

The sad answer is that I don't really address the staggered armour that much at all. I cut the plasticard so it's round, but pretty much leave it like that. It isn't really worth the effort to me! And if i were to put the effort required in, it would cost my clients way more!

So the front 'plates' have the turned up edge and the back has a staggered card section... do you put an 'extra' stagger in, or just extend the one above to be longer?

it's matched the the lower "stagger" so effectively extends that, with a small line in the middle.

The front plate has everything the original model has!
