Default Truescales!

Yes, I did just say that.

I'm starting truescales, not just one, or two, but a whole army of them.

I have lots of bits in the post and trades that are almost done which will bring me plenty of bits.

I found enough bits to start work on one already.

I don't yet know what I'm going to do with the icon on the shin, either leave it as it is, get rid of it completely, or trim it down to just the skull.

Comments and critisisms!

Default Update 28/10/09

Hey guys!

Ok, so I did some posing, and have decided on the pose, and which parts I'm going to use for it. The right arm has been sculpted and pinned with a single wire running right through the arm into the torso.

I also filed down the logo on the shin to just the skull, and the vents off the chest to put the chapter logo (my avatar) in its place.

The left arm atm is unpinned and unattatched.

I have decided on the bare head to go with this pose, as it looks as if he is focussed on delivering the swift death to his opponent, whilst also staying in control, i think he'd make a good Tactical squad SGT personally, and am wondering if I should give him a power sword?

I know the head doesn't fit well, that's because of the amount of blu-tac under it, and i can file the base down anyway.

Pic:



I have also sculpted a small loincloth onto a terminator codpiece, I am currently undecided as to whether or not I should use it? Maybe I could magnetise it? (i have some really tiny 1mm diameter Rare Earth Magnets I could use to do just that)

Pic2:



Hope you like!

Cool pose, magician847. The loincloth could look well if you smooth it out a bit more where it connects to the cod plate. But I think it looks awesome in tandem with those extra thigh plates. Should look cool painted up.

Brother Wulox has just redirected me to a tutorial on loincloths, which I think I will use. Dark Messiah's tut, so thanks go to him as well :D

thanks to you too holmstrom!

EDIT:

Having followed the tutorial, and shaving off the back of the groin plate so that it fits over the top of the new loincloth, it looks as thus: (i did move the plate up a little further after taking this pic):

thanks wulox, i'm also gonna ditch the skull off the leg too ;)

and I feel pretty chuffed that I have managed to magnetise it so I can swap the CCW with a power sword, and you'll see why when I take pics, when the glue has set.
