weekly ramblings #5

Evening guys and girls,

Its update time again, I'm actually off this entire week the first full week I've had off work in a year and a half. Needless to say I have been squeezing some hobby time in.

I've mainly been working on inq28 stuff as for once I actually have the energy to sit and focus on sculpting :-D

So first up is some progress on the mutant crime boss type guy:

still a lot to do on him, I think his arms will take the longest now as I will have to largely scratch sculpt them. Thinking of using catachan arms as the basis of them.

Next up we have some work on the gunslinger woman:

I've been trying to salvage the conversion by adding some armour but to me it still looks terrible, I think I might tear off all the gs work and start again....

Well thats it for now guys, I'll likely have another update early next week :-)

Evening guys and girls,

The blog has hit a big milestone in the past few days, that is that I now have 100 followers this is something of an honour to me as when I first set this up I never for a second would have thought that so many people would be interested in my work.

So all I can say is a big thank you to you all for the support and I hope you carry on finding my adventures in the hobby interesting :)

Right I have a bit of an update tonight, first up another heavily WiP inq model:

This guy I picture as some kind of gang/syndicate boss obviously a mutant or abhuman whose sheer brutality and cunning has made him rise to the top. He is a combination of an ork boy torso and chaos cultist legs to give him a nice hunched and powerful frame.

This model will be dual purpose, given its highly unlikely I wil ever play inquisitor he will also serve as a gang leader for necromunda a game I can see me, Rictus and Nife eventually getting round to playing.

Next up we have my first Test Stand for epic:

Yes im mad i attempted legion symbols. This was rather quick to do but looks pretty affective. I will of course be doing stands in bigger batches normally. I just wanted to get a test one done to nail down the scheme.

Thats it for now guys, I'll have another update in a few days time :)

Inq28: WiP Bounty Hunter

Evening guys and Girls,

As threatened the onter day here is another update, 2 in one week I spoil you dont I haha :P

Here is the Bounty Hunter I have been working on for INQ28:

He is an exercise in random inspiration hitting me and then me actually having the motivation to make him. Drawn inspiration from various sources for this guy and I am rather pleased with him so far. I figured he would make a good well traveled Bounty hunter so I've given him som fairly decent equipment that he has acquired in his travels, first amongst that a Pulse Carbine.

Still some work to be done on him mainly tidying up and smaller touches. the machine pistol arm is only tacked on and needs a bit more work doing to it as it seems to long at the moment.

Well thats it for now, let me know what you think :)

Weekly Ramblings #4

Evening Guys and girls,

Week or is it 2 later than normal? bah it doesn't matter as to be totally honest I have barely done any work hobby wise due to work and then having a nice weekend away with the GF.

Anyway I'm back to rambling on about hobby stuff. This time focused on INQ28mm :O

I've been sorting through boxes of models today and found out the stockpiled bits for my neglected inq28 project. I initially stored them away because of a complete lack of ideas or inspiration, in a shocking turn of events upon getting them out and having a look a where I left off inspiration struck. So now I'm back to workin gon a few bits:

2 new WiP characters

Really need to finish these pair

It feels good to be doing some more involved sculpting instead of simply filling gaps on truescaled corsairs, seems to have been an eternity since I actually just sat and sculpted.

The other side of messing with INQ again is its tempting me to come out of my self imposed exile from forums namely from the Ammo Bunker. I abandoned most forums before because I simply no longer held the interest or drive to actually take an active part in the community and keep updating. This is a far cry from when I used to be heavily involved over there, I guess times change. We'll see what happens, but joining the rather talanted bunch on the inq section over there is highly tempting.

In other news my normal partners in hobby crime known only as Rictus and Nife have decided it would be a good idea to do Epic with a horus heresy theme, of course they also decided that it would be a good idea to nag and bully me into joining them...............Thus I have a batch of epic stuff heading my way from Ebay, I'm thinking battle of Calth themed Word Bearers. More on this when the models arrive :)

Well that sit for now, might try get an update done during the week.
