Celestial Tigers - Art Scale? Or something like it...

Another suggestion would be to try out some P3 brown stuff. I've had better success myself gettingsharp edges and smoother flat surfaces with it in the past.

I reckon it's supposed to be a separate plate of armour, which is fine with me. I think it just needs to be more angular to look 'right'.
Hey, another fellow Alaskan! Well, I think he's looking pretty decent so far, except the odd fat roll he has going on between his chest and abdomen. I'm not really sure what that is, or is supposed to represent, but it looks a bit strange. Maybe smooth out the greenstuff into one solid chestplate.

The only thing that stands out as a little off to me is the size of the left forearm when compared to the thigh armor. I might just be a camera angle. Then again, I am not familiar with Art Scale.
Keep up the good work!

I just double checked the model, it is a camera angle. The forearm is a little more than half the thickness of the thigh. Which is close to correc based on putting my own forearm against my thigh.
I just want to get my clay shapers to make the GS more smooth on the next models.

Thanks Chaplain! I am super excited to throw some paint down. Just found my paints after digging thru some unopened boxes from PCSing here from Japan! Picked a paint scheme I actually like better! Plus I plan to make and mold my chapter badges in the near future! Check out my IA for the newest color scheme and badge concept!

Apothecary Heo Jun
Veteran Eung Sun
Group shot so far:
Like I said, obviously not done, but a good beginning I think for the three newest. I still need to throw on some shoulder pads and other equipment. Well a little more GS to do as well.

i once painted names on the base's of my models, but i didnt really like the look of it. ive sence started painting names on scroll work, and i think that would look great on youre models. you can easly green stuff some scroll work onto there legs/ chest/ shoulders if you like this idea.
it looks like youve green stuffed some sort of, possibly a tigers head? can we get an angle on that?
finaly, are the pistols on the power fist marine (i dont see a name for him) and veteran Eung Sun for design purpose, or is that for gaming purpose? unless 6th edition has changed anything, you dont get an extra attack in CC for a having a pistol w either of thoes weapons, so you maybe better off with a bolter or combi weapon. one thing the pistol does offer is you can shoot it the turn you charge, which admitantly is a nice bonus. but you can shoot the bolter/combi several turns before you can shoot the pistol. just a thought. id hate to see you fall into the same mistake i did when i first played.

That is a GS tiger, but it is a pain. I need to find a better way, perhaps take a spare pad and put the tiger on there and then cast a quick mold. I will have to test it, because I put it on a flat surface then cast it, and it was a PAIN to put it on the angled/rounded shoulder pad.
I should have really thought about the equipment more. I should have did bolters and combi-weapons. But then I have never played 40k so I have no clue what to do.
