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:
