I don't play the game, but, always thought Terminators were good looking models.  Your model is just beyond cool.  Nicely done!  I look forward to seeing this all painted up.  Well done on getting the pose the same as the painting, also.

Thanks guys!

First thing I decided to tackle was the head. If you're wondering where it's from, it's actually a (recast) of the Kingdom Death limited Thief mini. Honestly a bit big, and the expression is... not especially appropriate, but my go-to source of conversion heads is currently out of stock and if I wait to get this finished it'll never get done. The lower edge of the terminator armor will block the bottom half of her face, so I think it's fine.

 

Of course, the anime-esque size of the eyes means she looks like a teenager in terminator armor... but whatever. If it really really bugs me I can yank it out and put in a new head.

Forgot to take pics both times, but the arms are only friction fit on styrene pegs right now to give me access to the torso and right thigh. When I'm done painting they'll be superglued into place.

 

I forgot this is a styrene model, not Bonesium, so I can happily use enamel metallic paints without fear of curing problems. I love enamel gloss metallics whenever I can use them, they just have this amazing shine that no acrylic paint I've seen matches. So base coats of some colors and most of the enamels because they take forever to dry.

 

(yes, that is Celestine in the back there)

I actually kind of love the idea of a teenage girl in terminator armor!!

 

Seems like something right out of an anime! :lol:

If I ever do a Sisters army, it will not be Order of Our Martyred Lady. The shine of the metallics is absolutely killing the subtle shading I can do on the black armor.

 

Also downside to enamels: Since they have a tendency to wreck brushes, I never use my good brushes on them...

 

Anyways. clean up, some heat staining on the heavy flamer with blue, purple, and red glazes, some messy freehand. You can also see how I decided to do the braziers / exhausts in the end; I'm not really sure how to sculpt a properly 3d brazier that small. Something for wiser men than I. (probably digital sculpting)

 

Somewhat goofy proportions (tiny lower body and generally horizontally stretched), but that's Terminators for you. If I decided to revisit this idea, 54mm might be nice.

      Presenting The Engineer, this hulking monstrosity of flesh and steel was originally another Nurgle-themed baddie from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset (like his friend Screamin' Eddie).
       
      Not quite as happy with this one as I was with Eddie, for all his details he ended up kinda boring looking, but I was rather pleased with how his fiery belly turned out.

      Presenting Screamin' Eddie, purveyor of the finest human meat to be found in all the Radlands! 
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this guy. Originally, he was one of the big Nurgle baddies from Games Workshops Rogue Trader boxset, but I thought he worked well as a more generic Post-Apoc mutant (they all could really).

      My second project for Fealron marked off a few firsts: First magnetization, first mounted cavalry, first Pugh sculpt.
       



      Here you can see the 2mm magnets inserted strategically.

      This is how he sits mounted.  But, I wanted to keep it removable, thus the magnets.  I confirmed it would stay in place upside-down!


       
      A sharpened paper clip acting as the scaffold for the horn.  I also sharpened the lance tip.  It comes cylindrical out of the blister.
       

       
      Green putty to make the horn and cover/reinforce the magnets.
       
       

       
      White brush on primer, Black on the base.  
      I tried a little experiment with the base coat to give the bone a more orange look:  1:1 Ruddy Flesh:Desert Stone.  It may become my go-to for bone work.

      I finished another mini this week and hope you like him: Elladan Elven Ranger. His weapons were a bit bendy, so I replaced them. I also repositioned his arm.
       
      I like how the cloak turned out, the face could be smoother, but his cheek bones seemed to be quite pronounced, so I went for more contrast and impact from a gaming distance.
       

       
      I also got around taking a scenic shot. I still think my Smartphone can't replace a proper camera, but for now it must suffice.

      I mentioned this in randomness. I've been building an urbanmech style grot bot as a present for a friend's birthday. 
       
      Since I won't be the one painting it, this is as done as my part gets. 
       

      This was the bot last night. The big gun is a Tau weapon, the legs are from an ambot, the other arm is a mix of random bits, and the body is a stack of bases and part of a TV mount. 
       
      Then this morning I added the Ork details. 

       
      A bunch of horns, a face, some more bits, and a lot of those triangles orks like. 
      And a back shot. You can see the exposed fuel tanks.
       
      And a detail shot of the gun. Which I would like to point out has three different ammo feeds, none of which are correct for the weapon type.
