@ exetus: Nice one, I love Huron's claw, I just wish they made a matching set!

@ Demus Ragnok: And I thought deathspectresgt7's entry had a big weapon, well done!

@ Ben rolls: Consider me suitably disgusted! Fantastic GS-fu, PaPa Burgos should be so proud.

 

Cheers,

Jono

I did look at Walmart - Neither one here had any.  

 

Both had these little re-usable sticky discs that they were selling as a replacement product, but won't work for what I need.

 

Wednesday it will be here from Amazon, I will post two Librarians then.  Will give me (3) Custom Librarians.

Try an Office Max or Staples as well... I'd be shocked if they didn't carry it.

I'll look, but it's already on order from Amazon, so not that big of a deal - I got a whole 2 oz of the stuff for less than $4, so not too bad - I'll never use more than a couple small pieces at a time.  

 

I'm also looking forward to Wednesday - Can I submit both guys in the same 5 pictures if I assure that neither blocks the other, or do you demand 10 pictures?

Preferably 1 post of 5 pics per Libby. Should either of your models make the Top 5/10 it'll be easier to identify/show off.

thanks! only my 3rd attempt at GS though. i doubt it would lend itself to a loyalist better though. i think GS is papa nurgles droppings, hence why its easy to do nurgle with it.

@Averykess: Very nice Model. Even if the pose isn't very exciting, the kitbash is. Old school Shoulder pad psycher hood, nice plasticard work, the book in the hand.. my favourite so far.

Psychic hoods per fluff are for increasing the psykers power, and protecting the Psyker from the warp. Per this guys story, his power is at a level where the good does not increase his power, so he instead has a null rod in his spine, which purely serves to protect him from warp entity's. I'm not saying he's the best Psyker ever, far from it. He is just not able to become any stronger.

I don't want to give away too much, but he has a twin. The two share a special bond, which is the reason his power is capped out. When the two are together, his power is at its most potent. However, the more distance between the two, and his twin becomes stronger. His twin is actualy the stronger of the two, except for when they are together.

He's also a throw back to when the hoods where optional

I'm debating going back and removing his tabard... Replacing it with something... Yet still, I like the simple design. It fits with the idea that he was beleived to have been a chosen one of a superior design, yet became overshadowed by his twin... Now he is somewhat moody about the fact

the hoods a requirement for the comp though.

Thanks.  I wanted a scholarly pose for this one, and I was inspired by one of the early librarian models.  I'm going to attempt a glowing eyes effect when I paint him, but I'll probably screw that up.

As for the null rod, as long as the finished model is distinctly a Librarian, it'll be ok.

Cheers,

I think I just accidentally posted this in the other thread too. Damn phone.


Edit:

An don't worrie, I can't win anyway. I'm just in it for the banner.

Actually, Yes on the flames. Just little bits of it though, like after effects of the pyrokinetic backdraft still stuck to his plate. That'd be cool.
