Day 16 to 22 - Torso's, backpacks and a few surprises in the mail

Rate this Entry
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.

I also started sculpting the centre of the heavy bolter backpack as my mould didn't really work out well enough for my liking.

I also got most of the torso's onto the legs. For this simply get a small blob of green stuff onto the bottom of the torso and press it on to the top of the legs. Make sure you think about how the position of the torso will look with the legs and arms attached. Do you want it facing forward? Just off to the side? Maybe leaning slightly one way or the other?

The only one I didn't get attached is the space wolf one. But I did start filling in the leg.

I have also started making the Custom Marines Staff, long way to go but it's a start at least.

I feel like I've done a good amount tonight that I can be happy with, they're starting to look a little bit like Space Marines.

Now your probably wondering what surprises came in the mail. Well I wont keep you waiting any longer -

First thing to come was my Nemesis Dreadknight I got on eBay. I plan to convert it up for my Deathwatch. Hopefully when it's done it wont look too much like a nemesis dreadknight anymore...

The second thing was my order of Bluestuff. A putty made for making moulds. My mould of my deathwatch shoulder pad never really worked too well so hopefully this will work better...
