For a first effort that's great, but why sculpt the legs? Why not just space GWs?

I would have loved to do that, but I didn't have any legs, or a back to his chest piece for that matter. And I was really motivated to give it a try, and had few to no spare bits. When I get some extra units I'll definitely use your method, I was just really impatient and wanted to see a tall marine.

Another pic this time with the added height from the base, to really show the size of the truescale marine.

interesting how Anime-like those legs make him look. He looks like he'd go really well into infinity in some ways.

Default Just couldnt help myself

So I gave him a nice paint job after some minor touch ups, and this is what I got.

Also I just couldn't quite get a good shot of his left side pad (with corrosion [possibly from a plasma blast]) so I had to hold him.
Thanks for the comments

Definite A for effort there (i would never sculpt the legs if i was attempting truescale). however there is much on the model that doesnt sit well with me. While i understand the lack of bits makes things difficult at times I am sure there was a better backpack choice for him than the Missle Launcher Backpack. (it really sticks out). on the other hand very good work on the colors. White is a pain to pull off and you have done so nicely. As well as having a really vibrant blue.

In response to this I had a thought, so I decided the backpack would be converted into an ammo dispenser. Thanks for the insight! Anyway here's the conversion and a few other bits and pieces.
Also a cool picture I thought of Gulliman disciples emerging from the fog of war.

I think the painting is starting to look better, on that converted guy; he still has pretty much white but not to an excessive amount. He sure looks Ultramariney.

After all the truescaling efforts I've seen. I'm goong to convert all of the squad to true scale. Starting with this first post. Showing left (self sculpted) middle (newly spaced legs and torso, based on Torealis' designs) and right (regular scale). C&C welcome.

It seems the self sculpted guy with most likelystill be the talles member. And i do plan on adding two spacer to the legs of those marines with knee pads, possibly the pther guys with no pads will have two aswell, but i think a little deviation in the heights would actually add to the realism.

Also i have some things in the works on ebay trying to get 30 more marines... will update later on that
