Because of an old White Dwarf I was under the impression that this was a Slaaneshi Chaos Marine project, I stand corrected :lol:

 

Nice work brother :tu:

Taunt Marine found that thing you were looking for and cordially invites you to come and retrieve it. It is a can. He may even open it for you.

I've mentioned before the excellent work done by MonkeyBallistic; his true-scale Iron Hands are excellent:

I got in touch with him and he agreed to send me a couple of torsos:

I was intrigued with how he's used Grey Knight armour to evoke power armour. The use of the backpiece of a tactical torso is an interesting idea, too. 

 

I immediately wanted to try the pieces out to see what I could do with them.

These are heavily blue-tacked, and with no effort to neaten the join between torso and legs, but they definitely show the potential, whcih I'm pleased with. 

 

I've also blue-tacked this together, in an effort to emulate a model of Apologist's that I've always liked:

Wow. That's surprisingly crisp and clean. Very nice work. Apologist is a good example to follow, I reckon. :)

Those torso pieces are looking excellent! I used the same GK back for my own true scale Marine, but the added breastplate really is a thing of beauty!

Cor, looking great – I really like your version of the marine with the bare head and the grille. The ever-excellent MonkeyBallistic's torso really puts my putty-pushing to shame, and your posing looks more threatening than mine, I think.

Have to agree, Brother Mohawk Gateface looks laden with threat. Always envious of people with sculpting skill, those torsos are lovely. Where are you standing with the Castigators at the moment in terms of overall progress?

Several months since my last update. I got frustrated that Captain Anteas hadn't gone in a direction I liked, and left him to the side for a long time. But I was reading through Codex Imperialis and was confronted by an illustration that I hadn't seen in years - but that I had always loved. 

 

Blood%20Angels_zpsdpegisrl.jpg

 

This made me think that I could use the rock outcropping in a different way. Rather than moving up, I imagined him descending down. I wanted him looking down. In my true-scaled forces, I wanted a model slightly taller, and imagined him marshalling his forces, rallying the Castigators to war. 

 

My first step was to take the Abaddon figure and saw the legs apart in order to make a more fluid figure. I ended up sawing both the hips, removing both feet and replacing them from another cataphractii figure, and sawing one leg in half at the knee. Three pins and two green-stuffed joints has helped the legs to look a little more natural.

The head is only a placeholder. I intend Anteas to be far more noble, and have two heads that could work - Lufgt Huron's, and Garviel Loken's. Equally, the sword would be replaced (there is play in both the shoulder and wrist to alter the pose) and the storm bolter will be replaced for a pistol of some kind. The backpack banner needs a little bit of work, the tabard at the waist needs green-stuffing, and I need to repair the legs where I sawed them. 

 

I would definitely like to hear your feedback on this guy, through I certainly think I've made progress.

I think something to try is to emulate the picture a bit more - have the model face to the right while the head looks forward. And maybe bring the left arm (well, his right arm) down like in the picture. Maybe that'd give more of a vibe that you're looking for. That's my suggestion, at least. :)
