Dude Her's Royt To Me

Damnation she stands unaided without me even having to add junk to her trunk. so she can be played as a piece without gluing pads to her feet...

I may add a couple of ounces of lead to the void generators because she still leans forward a tad too much but Hell, she stands!!!

Now I can start detailing the paint and a whole slew of ideas to pretty her up...

And I thought it couldn't be done; Ha!

Very nice, the view from the front is really nice, really shows the stalking menace of the beast

Head Rotation Part 1:

Because why be satisfied with just one position.....

I tried this on my scratch built Warhound and it was quite an involved piece of work; much too labor intense......
http://i.imgur.com/1Eey09v.jpg


So here a simple and elegant way to achieve the same effect.

First get the old melon baller out of the utensil drawer (Who balls melons anymore anyway?) You can also pick them up cheap at the dollar store but make sure they're magnetic, (good) stainless steel won't work.

Next cut the bowl (cup) from the baller and sand the rough cut and surface of the cup.

And that's about it.....

Next, the result of the effort......

BTW I forgot to mention you need to have installed rare earth magnets on both the head and neck to make this work......

The Result:

So my little experiment has paid off and now my Warhound has a simple yet effective articulated head capable of positioning virtually anywhere within the confines of the neck area as befitting a model of this caliber..........

Looking down:

Midway position:

Fully elevated position:

Looking right (pardon the chopped image)

And looking left............

Just a little fun project to keep you from getting too bored whilst building one of these precast models.

"There are some days when I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction."
~Salvador Dali

Well I don't know what his satisfaction stems from, flaccid clocks or the world's most ridiculous mustache but I can understand the gist of his statement.

Today my Chaos Warhound stands 95% complete with all pertinent parts installed and ready for final painting. I regret I couldn't make the legs movable but the mass of this model prevented such niceties so I have to be satisfied with neck, waist and weapons being able to be posed but the legs are permanently glue into the pose you see here.

I had hopes to open my paint booth this weekend but Winter still has it's icy grip on the the northeast US so no painting as of this date.

So instead a brief show of the dexterity of the neck joint, would that I could have the time to animate this but you'll get the idea.

And in the final image the Space Marine is toast.

I Don't Do Windows:

If you're anything like me you dread doing windows. They're always messy and smudged with glue and always popping out and looking like a genuine bollixed up abomination. I got incredibly lucky on my Warlord but that was just that; LUCK.

So here's something I discovered last night that may take the pain out of glazing...

It seems the two products shown below are extremely compatible; the Loctite Ultra fast drying glue makes the Staples Index Tabs just the right degree of tackyness to adhere to the resin and softens the edges to conform to the window frames.

The two pieces joined (Just above the knife in the image below) were my test pieces and I just put a drop of glue and pressed the two pieces together momentarily and they held plus the glue did not cloud or bubble. Capillary action is very good with these products as well.

http://i.imgur.com/SaJ6Jxp.jpg


So with this result....

I'll leave you and attempt to install the other window with equal success I hope.

As ever Blackadder, you prove yourself a god among modellers. Excellent work, and congrats on your excellent model posing!

I reiterate that you should come down under and do a workshop for we poor heathens and amateurs...

The Saga Continues, or The Blackadder Has Too Much Time On His Hands.............

With my new Mini Ipad and some luck I am bringing to the table first hand images of my second FW Chaos Warhound. Since I've already established the pose and this one will somewhat mirror the previous pose shown above, I know how to set the feet for a reasonably accurate stance so my main concern is a proper base setting for display. In this one I shall be going for a barren lava bed with a melted Ryza turret and gun in the foreground ( In reality a failed casting of a Vanquisher turret and cannon I made years ago and which has been kicking around in the Russ bitz box ad nauseum) The terrain is some old 'Sculpey bakeable clay' I found in the garage and painted with a few passes from some old cans of Krylon spray primer spray; Flat Black, Gray Primer, Rust Primer, and EMD Carton spray paint that is used to blot out shipping labels.........

God has it been six months since I've posted here???? sorry to have been so remiss in replying but I have been so caught up in the suicide the US is forced to endure every four years I neglected my erstwhile following. I'd be more than happy to make the trip down under but I do have commitments here as well, but thanks for the replies and as always I am glad to answer any questions on my work regardless of complexity.

My goal here is to pose a second Chaos Warhound much the same as the first in a similar but mirror image pose and show the step by step procedure plus I want a depressing setting of a defunct Russ tank carcass with a skeleton slumped over the hatch coaming. That should be fun. Stay tuned for further developments.:D
