thanks!

 

been doing a bunch of different things. decided to work through the rest of my Tooth and Claw minis before starting the Reivers - One Agressor to go. Will probably be able to show the whole the crew next weekend.

 

In the meantime, I excitedly grabbed the new Phobos Lieutenant mini this weekend and earnestly began rescuing him from the bland existence of a codex marine.

a second shout out to FearPeteySodes (who i shouted out once before at another 40k community) - i tried the fur sculpting technique he described over in his thread and it's the best results i have ever gotten trying to sculpt fur. Unfortunately, most of it's hidden! I planned the mini so the pelt so if i screwed up i could hide most of it behind the backpack, with the bottom part of the pelt i got from the Wulfen leader doing most of the work.

thanks man. i was planning on replacing the wolf bit with a wolf skull, but by the time i cleaned it off, i was like "Crap, it looks good just as it is." sometimes less is more.

I like the dramatic pose. Hope to see the completed model soon.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

Looks great Wispy, definitely think you have found the sweet spot for making these Phobos-armored Primaris fit into the Wolves!

(And hats off to Triszin for providing the idea - between the two of you, I think you've started a trend - really wish they would sell the head and single-handed axes separately as well)

unfortunately, as much as i'd love to have a millions of those helmets kicking around, i think it's probably better to try to have some variety with the deathsworn mask just being one of a few kinds my vanguard/phobos will use.   i wanted it to be special for the reivers only (and even so i only did 3 of the reivers with it, mixing in grey slayer hoods). 

 

 

i will actually probably be a little more stock when it comes to phobos head and helmet choices going forward, with me going crazy-wolf in different ways for the different units. the important thing i want to emphasise for my vanguard is they be cold and scary.

With this I'm finally done with the minis from the Tooth and Claw box. Converting every Marine in that set was a lot of fun.

Hmm. It seems Phobos Primaris are not so ugly as at first glance. ;) Excellent work, dynamic poses are great.

It's a mixture of having more dynamic modeling and wolfing just enough.


But boy, phobos armor does it for me

It is a great adjustment to the model, and the balanced Wolf-ing really seals it along with the dynamic movement!

Now I have to know - what did you use to make the gem? Did you trim down the little dangling belt thing that is on the upgrade sprue?

yep. the primaris upgrade sprue has two dangling ones on it, and you can just snip them off.

Plowing through my backlog, I finished my Reivers.  Behold, the Dreadeye and his Five Fangs!

I picked up the Space Marine half of Shadowspear and will be working on some Infiltrators next. I am doing a charity tournament next month on the 24th of November (lol, doing this hobby for 11 years and my 1st tourney), so I have to crunch it to finish all 5 in the next 3 weeks. I don't have a hope of being competitive but hopefully i can dazzle with a well painted force.
