Building a True Scale Deathwatch Army

My day by day struggles to build a True Scale Deathwatch Army. I'll do my best to do some work and update every day. I was hoping to have them done by the 24th of August but I think I'll be painting them right up to the night before the Orktoberfest tournament.

Anyway I hope you enjoy.
Please feel free to leave any comments questions and criticism and I'll be sure to reply.

  1. Day 28 to 31 - The one month mark...

    Sorry for not posting regularly lately, I've either been busy or finished so late I had to go strait to bed as opposed to write this blog (like last nights 2am bed time...).

    I've been doing a few things lately, one of which is I finally got some robes on my Dark Angels Marine! I think they've turned out pretty good though I still need to put a rope around his waist so they aren't quite finished just yet.

  2. Day 23 - Backpacks almost finished

    I only managed to get just over an hour to continue this today, but pretty much all the greenstuff work on the backpacks is done. All that's left on them is any extra details I may want to add, like a skull or a symbol of some sort. I put a thin plate on top of the backpacks because I think it makes them look neater and slightly taller. Check out the picks below.

    This is my attempt at sculpting flames as an icon. For my Salamander Marine. ...
  3. Day 16 to 22 - Torso's, backpacks and a few surprises in the mail

    Hey everyone, sorry for not posting at all the past week, I haven't had a chance to get a great deal done so had nothing to post. But I've put in several hours after work today and this is what I managed to do.

    First of all I started filling in the gaps in the backpacks and adding a bit of personality to some of them. You need to take your time with this as it is important to get the join as neat as you can.

  4. Day 15 - Getting Backpacks Finished

    Tonight I've been trying to finish off the backpacks, once again I didn't get as much as I would of liked due to working late, but I've only got one left to go and the heavy bolter backpack is half way finished. Then I just need to tidy them up with greenstuff and add some personality and the backpacks will be done. I've cut the heavy bolter backpack down the centre and made a mould of one of the front sides and filled it with greenstuff so it should be ready for tomorrow after footy training, I'm ...
  5. Day 11 to 14 - Arms ready

    Sorry I haven't been posting on here guys, I've had a busy busy weekend and haven't really done anything worth mentioning. But tonight I knuckled down for the last few hours and managed to get all the arms ready to go. I clipped away the bulky terminator shoulder join and with my scalpel shaved away the excess to make it neater. Most of the arms I think I should just about be able to put strait onto the torso with minimal greenstuff work. Though I still need to attach that disc to the elbow of the ...
  6. Day 9 - Filling gaps in the side of the torso.

    So yesterday we separated all the torso's, today I started filling the gap in the sides. I've only done one side to each torso today as I have a bad habit of putting my finger in wet green-stuff... As a rule of thumb you should really let one part harden before moving onto the next part. There is nothing worse than marking your work after you spent so long getting it 'just right'.

    Anyway, here is a couple of pics, it looks messy but will finish up much nicer than it looks. You wont ...
  7. Day Six - Legs Finished

    Finally finished filling the holes and words ect on the legs... I'm pretty worn out tonight though after a fairly large day at work, so I'll have another look at them tomorrow after Football to make sure it's an okay job... Everything looks okay when your tired... But otherwise these are pretty much completely done. If I'm going to do any more to them I'll decide that when the model is nearly done. I'd like to see how the model is posed and how it looks before I decide what chapter it will be. I'll ...
  8. Day Five - Top of legs Finished

    Managed to get the tops of the legs done today. Though it wasn't as productive as I would of liked. I really struggled to get motivated today, probably due to the heavy drinking the night before, as a consequence I didn't get started until nearly 8pm. After I was finished with the legs I started trying to reposition those wonky looking ones but then quickly decided to just buy a new set on ebay. I found myself a nice set of Space Wolf Terminator legs that should hopefully arrive before the end of ...
  9. Day Four - Top of legs, side one.

    I didn't get them all done as I would of liked but I'm running out of time. I have two more to finish off tomorrow, though the one with wonky looking legs on the back right, I'm not happy with. I've decided that I will reposition them.

    For this part all I've done is got a blob of green stuff, rolled it into a thickish tube and placed around the top of the leg. I then smoothed it into shape with one of my clay shapers, making sure to go slightly over where I wanted the armour to end. ...
  10. Day Three - Lower legs done!

    Finished off the lower legs tonight. Took me 20 minutes less than last night so either I'm getting better or they're getting shittier. I hope it's not the second one. Either way, here is an updated pic of the legs. Tomorrow after Football I'll get started on the top of the legs. I'll have to run home quickly after my game, do a couple of hours and get back to Football for the last man standing night, should be a good night, but means I'll be working with a hang-over on Sunday... Ughhh... Not looking ...
