Iraqiel I think that post is a good one to keep in the back pocket for when I eventually do my deathwatch (he says a year after last mentioning the idea).

I did about 15 sets of legs in 2 hours this morning. It's easy when you know how! Just experiment with what works for you. The legs are the worst!

torealis Right, this is a quick image tutorial for the legs, which are the only real conversion when doing my Truescale Marines...


Cut at the thighs...


glue spacers to the groin end of the legs


put glue on the bases first, then the underside of the spacer, and stick it all together at once! You need to base him at the same time to make sure the pose is right.

Sometimes you can't replicate the pose in the original legs, the spacers muck that up somewhat, and if you try, they can look a bit derpy, so play around until you get something realistic. Then leave to dry.


This is an imgur album for a tutorial of my massive marines!

I'm going to work on some legs tomorrow, and I'll post a tutorial. Its really, really simple. You need to do it on plain legs though, sternguard won't work...
Sorry mate, I should have clarrified, I will be using normal marines converted to stern guard, so I'll save the time and effort for them, looking forward to the tutorial!

torealis RIGHT!

I've been neglecting the forums, but not my hobby!

Here is a brief rundown of what I've been working on...

Inquisitorial Retinues

I wanted to do all 3 Ordos, each with a unique style and colour pallet and have a really fun time with the models...

Ordo Hereticus


Ordo Malleus


Ordo Xenos


Space marines!

As I've mentioned before, I do two scales of Marines. My normal chapter marines are in a slightly taller Truescale, while my deathwatch are even taller still, something I call SuperScale.

comparison


I've done 3 full tactical squads, a full assault squad and a full devestator squad. I have enough bits to get up to 60 tactical marines, and the legs are in the works.

All the completed squads mentioned above are totally painted! I've uploaded a small sample:





I've also done these lovely grey knights in the same scale


My last 6 Deathwatch are a slight work in progress.But I'm happy so far.


aaaand this is a DKK commissar I painted up for my guard!

your scion kitbashes look good, got some of those heads left over from making my arbites so will be stealing the badass vets idea
Thanks buddy, it's nice to have some encouragement. It's been a while, and I've not been hobbying as hordcore as I'd like, new job and all.

I've dipped a bit into WFB, what with End Times being so fucking incredible and all.

But I've also been at work on these bad boys, but GK Termies. Truescaled and all!

This is the sergeant. He's going to be weilding a whopping great deamonsword:


These are the rest of the bodgers:




And my obligatory minigun man:


I'm having a hobby day tomorrow at a mate's, and these guys might get some paint on them. I'll also be working on a new superscaled deathwatch captain, and 5 truescale assault marines.
