Very nice. Do you use any form of magnification when you sculpt?

Yeah, I have one of those optivisor things I use sometimes when I have to work on some really small detail or the like.

Update on the ogre figure with the shoes done, based on the judges from the 2000AD comic.

Elbow pads and the badge are all that's left and hope to have it all done shortly. 

 

A little loincloth addition to my Lysander conversion, which I might paint up for the Dorn event.

Did some pose tweaking on the Lysander figure and also gave his shield some greeblies on the inner side to look more like a storm shield.

I hadn't planned on keeping the DW shoulder pad on him, but apparently when I first did this conversion a few years ago, I got that pad glued on incredibly well and I can't budge the damn thing. May not be such a bad thing anyhow because my airbrush compressor is out of action and painting yellow with a brush is special kind of hell for me. Still a few tweaks to do and then I'll pledge him for the Dorn event.

Good to see those power cables on the shield, looks far better now. :tu: Just a thought: GW sells Averland Sunset in spray paint form. Might be a good way to bypass the airbrush breakdown issue? Or you could not paint yellow and go with Crimson Fists (dark blue and crimson being two colours you've already painted well in the past) or something else entirely. So, what's your plan? :D

The Ogryn looks the business! Maybe add some some spiked studs at either side of the boot as well, really make sure whoever he kicks remembers it. 

 

As far as painting yellow, it's not as horrible as people make it out to be. Granted I would never do an entire army in yellow but I personally think blue is a lot worse.

Just had a look at the Ogre: the boots look a little too large towards the end, but that might just be the angle. DuskRaider's spikes (or even just studs) suggestion is a good one though. :tu:

The boot ends might be a touch large, but I think they fight the ogre's overall size. Since he's inspired by other Judge Dredd figures that Grot has, and not the 40k Arbites, I went to the original comic art and a figure based on that art for reference on the boots.

His elbow pads are done and curing so that just leaves the badge to do.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Thanks, brothers! Here's ogre about 99% done:

Just a little clean up on the back of his boots, the chain for the badge, and if Grot wants anything else taken care of.

What will you use for his Lawgiver pistol? A bolt pistol with some green stuff decorations? Or something more exotic, e.g., an Aeldari/Drukhari weapon?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Fluff wise he's a body guard, so he'll be armed with club and shield

The Ogryn Judge is looking fantastic! Such a clean execution of a really fun idea.

 

I will admit that the size of the boots throws me off as well, in that they look perfect when seen from the side, but the fact that they are so similar to the kneepads in width and texture actually makes the feet look less clearly like feet...does that make sense? Anyway, if all else fails, it's something that can definitely be worked out during the painting stage -- different colours is probably all that it takes.

This is the model being used as reference, which the boots match,

Here's where I got my first set of mini shapers a number of years ago. The ones I use these days are the flat chisel and taper point that are Extra Firm type (black colored tips, not grey or ivory) in size 0 and 2. Since you're in Austin, check Jerry's Artarma 'cause that's where I got my current size 2s a few years ago. 

 

Just pledged this guy for the Dorn event.

No problem!

 

Lysander with zenithal primer coat. 

 

YItlrhZ.png

 

Been thinking on how I wanted to paint this guy since I started working on him again and couldn't get the Deathwatch pad off the arm and had 3 ideas. 

 

DvHaAXc.png

 

1) Black is the new yellow

2) I'm the Chapter Master, I do what I want. 

3) Meet in the middle. 

 

I think I'll do 3 for the most contrast and visually interesting of the options.

Lysander is looking great! As for your colour options, I'd suggest either option 1) or 2): 2) would basically be the classic Deathwatch veteran approach and probably serve as the most solid, bread and butter approach. Using a slightly more templar-y angle (1) seems really promising! As for 3), I'd be wary of the two differently coloured arms (which are, in turn, in a different colour from the body) might look as though they were not actually a natural part of the model -- or as though you were still during the mockup stage.
