It must be said first that i did not make this, the only part ive had is providing ideas and sketches.

Before christmas, just after i got a phat paycheque, i decided to commission my dream model, and found Scibor (http://www.sciborminiatures.com/en_,index.php) to do it. This is his latest update to me, and god, its just too beautiful.

Yeah that's outstanding, and his other work, notably the Adeptus Custodes is incredible. This guy is a Master of the Green Stuff.

Agreed.

Any chance you could put up the concept art?

lookin fairly cool, i can see alot of bits and peices from his other models, and am sorry to say scribor, whilst he has access/created some really cool space marine parts, he isnt a master of green stuff nor does he sculpt very often, the above mini was created computer guided laser cutting and various other tools that create molds to which he gains patterns and shapers from

I was wondering when this would come up...

why are you sorry to say that? The man has turned his talents to a very good end, why should the methods be important? He is very open about how the models are created.

Also, it should be mentioned that he does not use moulds for every part of the model. The shoulder and leg guards are press moulded, having been designed in a 3d computer program.

Most notably, the demon head is sculpted freehand, as is the head and the servitor.

am not saying its a bad thing, theirs aspects to his techniques id love to able to incorparate into my own work, he does things that you just couldnt do with the normal sculpting techniques id just like to be see him push the bar higher creativly and diversify his work more and mix in some tradiontial sculpting with the molds.

am not one of those people who considers him a 'cheat' id just like to see him really push his techniques a little more out of his comfort zone

I'm not saying anything about the price, it's too embarassing...

What i will say is that he's getting a cloak with the =][= on it, with Deus Imperator written at the bottom.

was very tired last night so just posted the photo...

this is the latest update from Scibor, the model is completely finished bar the cloak, for which he says he is waiting for a new mould.

I love the weapon, its just the right size, and the shoulder pad...

now, painting suggestions?

(i'll post concept art today)

That is bloody awesome. I would paint him in dark colours myself to emphasize his grim looks.
