Default Blood Angel bobblehead sculpt for Charity.

Hello all,

This thread is to show progress of two bobbleheads that I am sculpting.

One will be a Blood Angel Space Marine and will be auctioned off for charity shortly after completion in a couple of weeks time. Should make a cool Christmas gift for the winning bidder.

The money will go to a local children's hospice in Guildford, Surrey - http://www.chasecare.org.uk/

The other will be a Slaanesh Chaos Marine for me keeps.

Sculpting material wise All I've used so far is a bobblehead toy as a base, then added miliput applied with the standard GW sculpting tool. Adding water to the surface after everything is in place helps to smooth thing over and I will file/sand the large areas to really make them smooth. Details like a Blood Angel tear drop gem will be done using green stuff and when necessary I will use bits of 40k bits.

Here is the start that I've made to to them.


The one on the left is my first bobblehead based on the Ultramarines Chapter. The one in the middle will be the Blood Angels Marine sculpt with inspired bling from Space Hulk models. And the one on the far right will be the the Slaanesh Marine.

Any input from you guys will be greatly appreciated to make them as cool as possible. At the moment I'm not sure what to arm the Blood Angels Marine with, the last one was armed with a Powerfist and a boltpistol and was a Captain. Which will be better for this one? Bolter, bolt pistol and chainsword/powersword? Should I theme around a Blood Angels character? Need help!

NB - here is the video of the Ultramarine bobblehead:

Heavy bolter, thats a nice idea, like this across the body? That ammo belt would be a pain to sculpt though, could give it a go. Any votes for making him a beaky?

Beaky sounds cool. Across the body might be the easiest way

nice.....

i would definately go with giving it a heavy bolter, and the slaanesh should have a chain sword and bolt pistol

Agreed, Heavy bolter for the blood angel, going to have to make the heavy bolter sharpish so that I can reposition the arms. I plan on doing all sorts of sun things for the Slaanesh marine, will get some sketch work up over the weekend.

Here are my concept sketches for the bobbleheads.

Been looking an Emperor's children thread and it looks like I missed out some stuff in the idea generation like, threaded together armour, and stretchy face skin over armour, and the standard pattern chaos marine detailing on the lower torso and shin pads.

Very cool idea these bobbleheads are. I can't wait to see them take shape. Based on the ultramarine, these guys will be very cool. Good luck. +rep!

Thanks Salio, glad to hear you like them.


I've repositioned the arms and build frames for the detail work to go on to for a heavy bolter, ammo backpack, and the slaanesh marine's backpack. The heavy bolter will have to point downwards so as not to get in the way of the head movement.

Also trimmed down the mouth piece in preparation for the beaky. I've run out of miliput so will pop to the shops tomorrow.

So I've made a start to bulking out the rest of the body, and the shins. For the blood angel the beaky is taking shape with vents on the side. The Slaanesh bobblehead has a longermouth vent prepared and I have found a metal warhammer horse tail for the plume.

If you were wondering why the colour of the putty is different, it's because I didn't read the 'terracotta' label on the box. Anyways it's still the same stuff so I will use it for the rest of the build.
