Scratch Built Grot Tank

Hey everyone! After a long hiatus, I'm back, better than ever and bringing you my own scratch build for a grot tank. I got to building the ones I'd bought so it only seemed natural to add a fifth one. In fact, I had so much fun with it that I've got some ideas on for more.

On Decals and Practicality

Short post today, but have you ever had the right decal in the wrong color? For example, the Blood Angel's symbol in white for your Death Company Dreadnought, but all the SM decals have either yellow or black? Fret not, because the solution is simple:

Get some thin plasticard, apply the decal, use the decal as a guide and cut it out.

And there you have it, a quick stencil, now you can have the same shape as the decal in any color you wish. Obviously doesn't work right away for multi colored decals (you'd need to make a separate one for each), and you'd need masks for those that have uncoloured centers, like the eyes of a skull, but this is good enough for most jobs. And the obligatory picture:

Dante's base

Hey guys! Just an update to my Dante model here.

So this is an old cast of a sanguinary backpack that I did with less than stellar methods (caulk mold and acrylic resin). The results were bad... However, that was the point all along (possibly), so that I was left with ruined and weathered parts that would serve as great basing elements.

However however however, the method is a royal PITA, and I'm sadly never going to reproduce it, unless I find a way to have a naturally crappy mold without a lot of headaches. You can appreciate all the scratches, warping, and even a bubble that came out as an exploded directional bell which is really classy for thematics. C&C welcome. More pics after the jump, of course!

Lord Commander Cervan Dante of the Emperor's Blood Angels

Paiting was rather simple in this case, I used the White Gold color from the Vallejo Liquid Gold line (796), and then layered him up using watered down Gryphonne Sepia.

Black Reach Warboss- Kommando style

Hi There! I've neglected my blog a bit but here's some pics of my AOBR Warboss that I thought wasn't menacing enough. As always I'm a fan of changing proportions, poses, etc. to have unique miniatures that you (hopefully) aren't able to quickly tell their origin.
A short guide for the uninitiated-

Green is what I've sculpted
Gray is what comes from the factory
White is custom plastic work
Toothpicks are toothpicks :)

I'm going to need to upload some more painted stuff and become a true blogger, but for now here you go:

Sanguinators- Terminators Sanguinary Guard Style

I'm pretty sure these aren't completely fluffy, but it's my take on what a personal bodyguard would be for Dante if he ever donned terminator armor for any special situation, say a space hulk mission. Bits used were simple Sanguinary Guard and Grey Knight Terminators, and I did the From the Warp method of changing proportions because otherwise the arms looked extremely silly. I'm very happy with the result, as it's really close to what I was thinking. I think I can get away with not removing the psychic cowls by imagining they offer info directly to their brains... 40k is all about imagination and a huge scale, so my only advice is to do pretty much whatever you want to as it can be easily explained away ith a bit of that- imagination.
