@SwedeMarine : I think I've got away with it tbh when you look at it with other details, it's nearly finished now, just need to touch up a couple of places, give it a matt varnish to dull down the shine and redo the number on the door, it's not very exciting but it's not meant to be and it does the job.






Also WIP on the Captain's helmet, needs some cleaning up but this is the basic idea and one I am pretty happy with, I needed a way of making him stand out from the Sanguinary Guard/VV that he will run with and they have gold helmets which as a Captain he should have as well, decided that I would give him a gold eagle on his chest plate/jumppack harness, a gold helmet and a crest, rather than go with the normal horse hair style I decided to go with something a little more unique. The heraldry of the chapter includes barbs (like you can hopefully see in the chapter symbol) so it seemed like a logical thing to use, originally I was going to make them out of plasticard but then by chance while buying some bits from @bitsandkits I came across a Ork shoulder pad that had some, I grabbed it, filed it down and chopped it up and this is the WIP result. I'm also considering making the crest white just to set him apart that little bit more, possibly with a helmet stripe like on my Minotaurs.



Thoughts?

Spot on. It does look alot better all together than as seperate pieces.

as for the captain i would suggest bulking up below the barbs a little bit. especially in the back. It looks like a littl off but that could also be the angle. Otherwise your idea is perfect and i wouldnt change a thing.

I ended up smoothing the join a little bit, hopefully it makes a difference:

So got some paint on the head tonight and I need some help deciding if I should continue the white stripe onto the helmet itself not just the crest. I'm not talking about the face plate but just the top of the head, kind of like on the Minotaurs above. Take a look:



What do you think should I do it or leave it as is?

And also some very battered Sentinel legs that should look ok once put together and the rest of him:



Time to get some metal on him I think!

Can't say I see it personally! No thoughts on the white crest question then?

I'd leave the crest as it is, looks good. The sentinels are very nicely done. Will there be a crew man looking out of the latest one?

Sorry Son, I went and played with it, he still needs to be varnished but this is pretty much the end result:





As for the Sentinel, well see for yourself:











Does the trick i think, not bad for a couple of very battered, broken and glue drowned second hand sentinels I think. Only got two pieces of arty left to convert and paint and then this force is done! Finally some progress!

Actually the helm looks better now! Don't listen to me.

Nice work with the sentinels. The damage on them is excellent, did you use a sponge to do that?

Thanks Son, Yeap sure did, all the metal damage and the black except for the paint "chipping" on the white bar down the front, the bigger chips were done with a brush.
