Thread: My first WIP (Or how to keep me going)

  1. #1

    Default My first WIP (Or how to keep me going)

    With a lot of my projects they don't get shown until finished, either to protect IP or copyright of the client. I also get a lot of customers asking not to show the finished article as they don't want anyone to know who made the model.
    All this being said I've decided to do a WIP of one of my own personel projects to keep my motivation to finish the project.
    Recently I commisioned Cassar to make a jump pack for a 70mm Space Marine produced by Forgeworld. Not only did he produce a great piece of work he made me an optional one to. The next task is to finish removing any unwanted symbols on the marine and start adding my own chapters markingsName:  IMG_0034.JPG

    So today I have removed the symbols I don't want from the marine as its not going to be death company. Next stage was to sketch the outlines of the symbols I do want as the shoulder pads have damage detail I want to keep in the finished article.

    I dunno. One day a week would be worth it for me, rather than the hour or two I get to snatch up now and then.

    This is the model Cassar was ribbing you about painting, was it not?

    Now back to the model. Symbols have now been added in greenstuff and ready for undercoating. If your not sure which chapter it is its the Night Hawks which is my own chapter I started about 15 years ago.

    So 1 day a week proved a bit ambitious as I only managed a measley 3/4 of an hour ! but progress is still progress (he says trying to convince himself ).
    The base rock was painted with vallejo paints starting with dark fleshtone, then parasite brown, then scrofulous brown and finally bone white.
    On the base you will notice some marine armour parts, the next decission is do I paint them as a fallen brother or as a different chapter.
    Your votes and opinions would be gratefully received

    So no votes on the marine parts on the base, thinking of ultramarines as I dislike those tax collectors.
    Have made some progress this week while waiting for paint to dry on some bussiness projects, painted all the bone work and tested the dark blue armourName:  IMG_0007.JPG

    This weeks progres is . . . eh none ! Before Cassar sends the boys round health stopped play this week and litterally couldn't sit at my desk for a minute without enduring extreme pain, so I've done some sculpting this week instead.
    It's a piece called miss america based on the picture of the same name by Chris Achilleos.
