Real Life Space Marines
A few day ago you have seen the project of Chaos Space Marines. Today it's time for us. We are makeing those since March 2009, and finally we are close to end.

On the beginning I'd like to welcome everyone here. Let me introduce myself. My name is Chris, I'm from Poland (country in middle-east Europe ;) ). So I'd like to excuse all of you for my English, I'm not very good in it but I'm working on that.
The reason why I'm here is not that I'm playing WH40k but I like this Universe. I like it so much that I always wanted to have my own real SP (who doesn't ;) ).
The reason why I'm here is that I'd like to introduce you The Space Marine. Or I should say Space Marines.

Project is not done yet, but will be soon I hope. It is expensive thing, yet we are determined.

Firstly, we were hoping to built Grey Knights, but the whole idea failed with the painting for Polyester Resin. There no silver paint. Then we decided to choose are own Chapters and so begun the big thinking thing.

My friend whos name is Wojtek chose The Deathwatch http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/mediawiki...athwatch01.jpg
I chose Legion of the Damned http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/mediawiki...ftheDamned.jpg

The pictures of WIP are below, the short movie is on the down of my post.

As you can see we still don't have belts and helmets. But we heve few ideas. For today we finished all layers of resin and backpacks (which are not on the pics)

Enjoy and stay tuned, updates soon. If you have questions I'll answer them gladly.



















What can I say more. We have full capability of movements, lightness, defence and resistance.

We created then not only for Warhammer 40k, it's easy to modify then to any post-nuke full body armor. We'd like to use them in LARPs and convents.

And now the surprise. Converting them into Terminator armors will be quite easy. It's matter of changeing chestplates (which are easy to build) and higher installation of shoulderplates.

As I said, stay tuned, the newest picturest are in the movies.

Please comment ;)

Good to see you here.

I'll be looking forward to seeing more of this.

How are you getting on with the back packs? From what I have seen these are always the things that look odd.

Great work so far and I'll be interested to see how they turn out.

Backpacks are made quite the same way as rest. Frame of wood covered by fiberglass. But we tried to scale them just like it is done in models, you'll see how we done it in days. At first they will be little "naked", without painting and other things but with time will do. Whole exhausts are made from the... balls. and we hope they will fit nice, because we tried to make them in proper scale.

I will update pics in few days, you will see.

Oh what a hell, I'll do it right now.
This is how chest, shoulderplates and bachpach eith/without will be looking on the basic level. This whole cylinder has been already changed to little bit smaller.

I know that it may look weak on this pic, but believe me - it's not. Let's just say that my chestplate can handle multiply hits from training sword made of wood. Without even scratch.

Fiberglass can make it very very strong and resistant for every condition. It's also light so wearing it won't be a problem.

On the pics you can se old version of backpacks, they were heavy but strong. We decided to make them lighter, and covered with fiberglass they are even stronger now. We call them Superleggera and Scuderia ;)

Little update.
New pics.
Let's just say, that we have two thing to do and we are ready for pianting.






Ok now, little explain. As you can see, we must finish shoulderplates and belts, as fro helmets we shall see.

Backpacks are not attached yet because we'd like to paint them first.

Shoulderplates looks strange but they are just hanging on the chest, we don't have holding yet. They'll be a little bit higher.

Horgh 06-26-10 08:01 AM

I'll be interested to see how the backpack will be attached to that.

All times are GMT. The time now is 07:15 AM.
