Death Company Tycho (plastic)

Recommended Posts

hey Reaper people...

 

it's been a while since i've had anything to show, with my surf shop keeping me so busy...

feels good to finish something...

 

here is my plastic version of an old metal Space Marine character, Tycho, built from new plastic Sanguinary Guard, DC, and Captain parts...

the voting link has the montage with a close up of Tycho's face and chest that shows off the detail better than these wide shots...

check it out:

i tried a lot of new things on this mini such as a corpse on the base, zenithal style black (instead of just straight line highlights), battle damage on black, sculpting a face mask, and doing a solid black backing to the base rubble (hopefully giving the impression that there is more structure to the rubble behind the minis, instead of a rather convenient rockpile), and much more...

 

this is the furthest i've ever pushed outside of my comfort zone so far...

hopefully producing my best work yet, but that's up to you to decide...

 

i'll have a full write-up on my blog soon, where i will go into all the experiments and ideas behind this piece...

 

thanks for looking...

 

i hope you like him...

 

cheers

Way better looking than the actual sculpt. And you didn't paint it that stupid gold color they use.

 

Hats off all the way around!

thanks for all the kind words guys...

i'm glad Tycho has been a success...

 

it will be a while before i get a chance to do the painting article on my blog, since the video card on my laptop crapped out on me last month...

i have to replace the motherboard:(...

 

as soon as i can get some more time on my girl's computer, i'll get the article up...

until then, here is the post for the build:
