Brilliant as usual! I really like the old school sci-fi / rogue trader flavor of the cyber-brute. Sorry to see your mishap with the tile molds, but I suppose we learn by trail and error.
I started slapping some paint onto the Brute, starting with his rusty meathooks, implants and boots (he looks very European in his rusty sandals lol)
And I also started (re)weathering the Land Raider, finally having added all the bits of replacement and extra detail that I wanted.
Plus I managed to rebuild my tile set. Thumbs pressed that I manage to not eff it up this time
Thanks for stopping by, and stay safe!
Had a crack at fleshing out Mr. Meathooks. This is definitely the grimmest of grim that I'm going for here.
Rhino is looking sweet! Hope the new tiles turn out since they are looking really nice for basing/gaming. Nemesis guy is awesome!
The rusty hooks of Nemesis are looking great!
Its great to see some paint on that guy after seeing the early sculpts on Instagram. He looks very scary and grimy which is practically the CMON WIP "house style" I'd say I look forward to seeing him when his base is done as I bet he'll look pretty awesome!
Here are two more pics of him. I've tried to tighten up some of the contrast and flesh tones, as well as add some reflections to the blood vails on his back.
Still more touch ups to do, and finish off the base with some washes and powders, then I think he's good to go.
Also started making some more greebly bits, in the same push mold style as the floor tiles.
This time it is control consoles, so lots of buttons, screens and dials.
Your an absolute talent!!! The size of the model is much smaller than thought which is even more inspiring that your painting has done an incredible job making it appear larger!!! Awesome sauce
I've finished up the cyber brute, he is served up on a platter ready for your vote & comments here:
Thanks for stopping by and stay safe!
As usual I have too many ideas in my head (not saying that they are good ideas, just ideas), and not enough time to do a quarter of them...
Cyber Brute is up at putty and paint too, I'd appreciate a vote / comment there too
I've been sculpting something else over the last week or so: it will be an Aliens-based diorama, here are some wip shots:
I guess I love the idea of space marines v aliens, this is becoming a theme
Enjoy, and please stay safe!
diorama coming along nicely, but have to ask: why sculpt from 0, wasn't a conversion from Prodos figures an valid option? Or are those figures unusable for the scene?
Forgot, that it works again.
Almost all of the work I do is done on models that I either scratchbuild, sculpt, or both.
This gives me freedom to do whatever I want, but I also get a kick out of it when I'm done.
Sure, it isn't everyone's cup of tea, and not many people outside of the WIP forum here follow what I do. I get it too - no matter how much paper I glue onto my Fire Raptor, it is still a paper model, not an official one,
so people just go "meh it looks fake" and they swipe over to the next post. But it is good enough for me.
I own only a couple of "real" kit which I bought when I was younger, with more disposable income. So right now I can't justify buying any new pieces.
But this would just be an excuse for the real reason: because I love doing it
Voted and comment left for your Brute.
And wonderful work on sculpting the Alien!
