I must commend you on your sculpting, its really ambitious! It is always exciting to see people develop sculpting skills and see what projects they tackle!

The magos looks pretty cool. I have some critiques though. You have sculpted a lot of armor and machined pieces. However a lot of them retain that soft blobby-look. There are certain spots where the armor, armor trim, and mechanical parts could really use more attention.

Don't be afraid to take an exacto knife to some of your greenstuff and trim it, carve it, or shave little bits away. Green-stuff isn't just an additive medium. And besides if you trim too much off you can always add it back on.

And don't be afraid of using a needle file to smooth and plane armor plates and armor trim. Trim that is a regular depth and smooth looks a lot more believable than 'trim' with soft spongy edges.

Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to the rest of this army developing in this log!

Cheers,
Kreuger

I think your work is amazing! I have recently tried using kneadatite from Wayland games to make a hose (running from a dev's backpack to a flamer attached to a powerfist) and I just don't seem to have the ability to work with greenstuff so when I see work like this, its eye popping! Any pointers *nudge nudge*

Thank you everyone for your praise, encouragement, and rep =D It really makes the effort put into this worth it!

@Shiftystylin: Practice, practice, practice - and hoses are just rolled slow and steady.

Seeing that I have little to no life... I've been busily working on my day off, cause of the holiday.

So, here is another PILE of pictures.
Here are some close-up's of the Adanced Combat Servitors. They are all armed w/ a Bolter and CCW. Being servitors one or the others of these are grafted on - some of the CCW's are plasticard claws. (despite the fact the codex clearly says Chainswords- i believe I can get away with that conversion. Thoughts?)




Many still need "Fleshing Out" with greenstuff - but this is a starting idea.





I love how Terminator arms have a great cybernetic feel - especially after the shoulder pad has been neglected to be added.


Even though they don't have a Sargent figure for the Death Company - I decided I like the idea of one guy being better then the rest - so, I spent those last odd (x-many) points and upgraded one to have a Power Weapon. I decided a classic techpriest "gear axe" would look good, but I went and made mine a little straighter.

So, here is "Power Weapon Guy" and two more regular ones. I am particularly happy with the gun i found for him - a lil more ornate.





Some "Overseer" close-ups. In my mind, this guy is 'high enough' that he takes away "Mindlock"





And just so ya know what I mean with "i was bored" and "had a day off"....
All of this was raw materials, not too long ago.




Again: A special thank you to Alex for all his assistance in this project.

These are some amazing model so far WarHammerman. My only critique is on the magos, it was hard to tell cuz the top of the pic was a little blurry but it didn't look like you drilled the barrel of the meltagun. With all the detail put in everything, you really should drill the barrels of all the guns, it'll help a lot!

Time for a steak, a nap, and a hot shower.


See ya.
