Hey guys.. I know this has been asked plently of times, but does anyone have any good tutorials on how to make the plastic termies bigger..

I tried to go onto repent.be, but it won't work for some reason 0.o I remember there being a tut for how to make the metal one's bigger

Also anything for making then into chaos space termies.. And how to make chaos armour trims ..

You could just wait a month, they'll be out in September, or do what I did.

I got a shiny new IMP termie box, built them, coated them in laquer to make them all gooey and slick looking, then drybrushed my Death Guard scheme over that. It wipes out the icons, and helps them look gross.

How exactly do you want to make them bigger? As in true scale or just bulkier?

Might have an article up here that may be of some help, should be easy to add chaos bits and pieces - link

Hope that helps and welcome to the forum while I'm at it :wink:

Yeah, I seen that article already. Got it saved in my favs. I was thinking of that as a possible idea..

Do you think that the cardboard trim would be easy to put around the chest and legs? 0.o I was also planning on beefing out the legs a bit with plasticard too..

Sounds like a cool little project, what kind of trim are you going for. Full leg trim or something more specific to match the rest of your army?

If I have the time and bits I'll try of some different stuff....there's a minimum of two legs there after all :wink:

You mean like full length trim all over the leg or what?

I was thinking of making it like the CSM troop's trims, but maybe changing it a bit and making it distorted you know? That would mean i'd have to use GS right?

you could try padding putting a bit of greenstuff in their shoulder joints to make them wider, and put them on a double height base which is what I did to make my Termies more impressive. also, adding capes and cloaks really helps to make them more bulky.

speaking of height, for my chaplain on bike I put him on a tripple height base, and added building sprew stuff to his bike to make it bigger

I was actually thinking of putting a kinda robe thing down 1 side of my Aspiring Champ to hide the fact that I had to cut away part of his leg 'cause of the purity seals >.< Never dont it before though..

I also gotta put spikes all over them too. I'm gonna use toothpicks for that one. I really need to get hold of a camera to show my progress..

I don't think I mentioned earlier.. I'm making a Chaos Undivided army..

The colour scheme is just black with silver trims and, I think it's scab red (Been sooooo long since I've painted anything) on the shoulder pads and parts of the legs.. The Aspiring Champions and such get red helmets (Maybe) The eyes on them are all bright green. I think it looks more evil than the typical red eyes most people paint on chaos. I was thinking of painting the eyes on my raptor's white to be a bit different though, and maybe give them a variation on the paint scheme or something. Any ideas guys?

I also have a few ideas for my Deamon Prince too.. Like repositioning the left leg to be standing on maybe a rock or sumthing, don't much like the idea of dead things etc on the bases really.. The sword is gonna be turned round the other way so the point of it is touching the ground, and maybe make his left hand pointing at something? Is a Kai Gun a good idea for a DP?

Haha! If I can get hold of a camera that is! lol

It's probably gonna take me AGES to finish anything. I don't really do the hobby much.. Getting into more since I got my own place though! So hopefully I'll actually finish some stuff..

Been wanting to get these plastic terminators started for a while now. I've made a new chain fist out of an orc one, cut away the 2 middle fingers on a plastic powerfist and put the chainsaw in there.. Looks quite good too! Better than the one on the termie blister.. I also made 2 flamers from scratch, Think I need to remake one 'cause it looks a bit on the small size 0.o I can't really think of anything to make the other two termies better though, they just have combi-bolters..

I forgot how much I like working on my Chaos lol!

The only thing I did was put some plasticard inbetween the legs and torso and a layer under the feet. I was thinking of beefing them out sideways, but I thought they were wide enough, and the legs looked fine enough to me. I might just leave it as is, dunno..

Found some parts bits and Im putting together one as I type this. I'm actually suprised how easy it is to make these guys look more chaosy and imposing. May have something together tonight, though it will probably be tomorrow......way to many projects :wink:

Ace..

I know what you mean! Just add a few spikes and trophy bits and there you go!

I've almost done the champion, can't think what to do next 0.o Almost got the arms finished for my Heavy Flamer kiddy. Added 2 extra gas canister things from the Cadian sprew on his back, looks cool. And I had a Chainfist I made a while back for my metal CSM Termiesl. Gonna use that..

You know what other weapons would be best for the other 3 guys? Was thinking of having 2 Heavy Flamers on the go..
