    I really like that swampy water. Hope it comes off in the chemistry department!

    Thank you SaintToad!

    It looks like the epoxy cured properly, it is rock hard, smooth and no tackiness. That's a win

    Here are the final shots:

    I agree, outstanding job with the OSL, it looks real. That's a gorgeous little diorama.

    Cheers BaM, thank you so much. I do enjoy these kinds of little story dioramas a lot. Let's see if I can continue to roll with it



    And thanks to everyone who voted here and on p&p, I appreciate it very much.

    Stay safe.

    I've been playing with the idea of sprucing up my scratchbuilt Land Raider for a while, ever since I played around with
    an extra casting of the Space Marine gunner I did for the Fire Raptor, posing him as a gunner on top of the Landy.

    I've already posted some pics of my WIP on instagram, but I'll repost them here along with my thoughts behind it.

    First off, the gunner. I built a heavy bolter and reposed his arms, then stuck him on a piece of metal.
    The hatch on top of the Landy was removed, and a magnet glued undereath. This allows me to swivel the gunner easily.








    Next up is the aquila on the front of the Landy. Like all the other sculpted parts on the Landy, this is very chunky.
    I didn't know the materials (polymer clays and epoxies) well enough at the time, and couldn't quite manage the fine detail that I wanted.
    I have learned a lot since then, figuring out the materials and techniques (and patience!), so I thought I'd do a more refined version.



    But of course, once I started I couldn't stop: I sculpted a new relief banner for the side doors,
    and a holy book that will go on top of the Thunderfire Cannon housing.




    The original purity seals & scrollwork was also too chunky, so I sculpted some new ones and painted them up.




    I still plan on replacing the winged skulls on the backside with newly sculpted ones, and of course putting way more skulls on
    the hull. This is 40k after all, you can never have enough skulls.

    Once this is all finished, I plan on sprucing up the paint job and weathering too. I like how the weathering came out on the Sabre Strike
    Tank, so I'll do something similiar here.

    Thanks for stopping by, stay safe!

    Nice job on sculpting the various bits and bobs you are attaching to the Rhino! Gunner is looking really good as well!

    Cheers maxwin, glad you approve! But I have to admit, I mostly question my lifechoices when I'm in the middle of the build


    Speaking of being in the middle of it, here are some photos of the additions I am making to the Land Raider:

    First the main cannon: I removed the chunky blood raven and replaced it with a holy book of some sort (probably borrowed from a library somewhere):



    Next I removed the previous chunky bloodraven + crown from the sidedoors, and posed it with the new sword + bloodraven + crown, which I think looks heaps better:




    The winged skulls on the back also get replaced:



    And here is the new aquila in situ. I'll replace the blobby skulls with some crisper ones too.



    Here is a wip shot of the colorscheme for the side door stuff:



    In that picture is also a cast from my other project, a hooded skull, which I think will look good on the front sides of the track housings.



    In other news, here are some pics of my painted Ultranauts:
    These are the first 35mm sculpts I did in 2018. They remain my favourites

    Ha Growing up in South Africa in the early 80's we had a puppet show on TV named "Interster" (translated: Inter-Star) that riffed heavily off Thunderbirds.
    Very cool show, in terms of the puppets & spaceships used, but of course the whole plot was very much based on current affairs in South Africa at the time, and as such not very politically correct.
    I think a part of me channeled some Interster into the Ultranauts...


    As usual, one or two simultenaous projects are not enough, I had to go and start a new one.
    I started working on a bunch of Spacehulk-ish floor tiles, of which I want to make a mold and cast some in plaster, in order to make some usable game pieces.

    Very much inspired by the excellent Hirst Arts molds.
    However, I plan to make the molds out of silicon caulk, garage style
    This should mean I can make a similar mold to what is available from Hirst for about $15 instead of $30.








    Stay safe!
