Hey guys!
I originally posted this back before the crash but because loads of people have asked how I made my Gothic Marines I'm re-posting the tutorial.
It is pretty simple, requiring a little GS work, some marines and the legs from the WFB Chaos KNights boxed set. It's bit dated now but hopefully should help people out with their own versions.

Part one: Lower Leg

Ah, I remember this tutorial, awsome.

A bit too time-consuming and expensive for an entire army, but maybe as a kill team or Deathwatch for my Imps.

Thanks for re-posting! -_-

Wait, you mean it wouldn't work with the bottom leg of an Astartes?

Nice tutorial so far.

Now if you could just focus the camera on the object in question, rather than the Dark Angel in the background ;)

Doghouse, Would you be able to perhaps show some steps as to how you made the greeve.

Thanks

I remember this tutorial. i made some pre-heresy terminators with this tutorial, bet had a hard time with the greaves. how did you get them so smooth?
I don't mind that I am outnumbered 3:1 by an average army
I don't mind that I only have 9 possible unit choices in my 'codex'
I don't mind that I have to use one of the hardest paint schemes in the game
And I certainly dont mind spending 75 points of my 1700 point list for useless traits just to honour the history of my army

Part two: The torso

The torso is pretty much unchanged in any way the trick is attaching it to the CW legs.



Posted Image


Been a while since I made any of these (got enough parts for thirty or so of them sat around in my bits box...) but the trick is to cut the belt of the CW roughly in two and sit the torso on top. This may mean cutting a nick out of the belt so that it's sits neatly on top.

Posted Image


For the back of the torso I just filled the gap with GS.

Posted Image


I then made a rectangular piece using GS to shape out the back more.

I'll try and get a proper tutorial up asap (including how to make the greeves) but this should keep you ticking over for now. Trick to getting the greeves smooth is to use water, not loads but a thin film on the tool to allow you smooth the surface.
You have to be pretty dedicated to make an entire army of these guys but it's pretty easy to knock up a kill team. :D

This is a really great tutorial. I copied the pics just before the great crash, and even with my mediocre GS skills I was able to pull it off. The one thing I would suggest to those wanting to try it is go get a series of Medium, Fine, Extra Fine, and Super Fine/polishing grain emery boards. They will really help if you arn't to good with GS.

Posted Image Warriors of Chaos

Is it this set that you used for the legs? If so, I'm gonna snag this idea for my Relictors chapter to give them a smidge bit more unique look and I'd have UBER TONS of extra bits for future conversions *cackles chaotically*

Would it be possible to get a picture of this, please?

Armies I'm contemplating starting

No, why would I think I might be biting off more than I can chew?

When I was attmepting some of these, I found sticking a piece of 1mm card inbetween the front and back halves solved that problem, along with bulking out the marine. I'd post pics, but I never dull coted the models and they look pretty bad now B)

What about Doghouse's Finished Gothic marines? I've searched the forums but I assume the great crash took those from us...

Ah! I found the sprue's finally of the models and I did abit of photoshop work on them and found you can make Chaos Space Marines from the leftover bits (torso's from chaos war's and legs from SM's) Its a nice lil bit of conversion if you're wanting to do some Chaos SM's and get the most bang for your buck.

Sorry I haven't updated this in a while but I'm having some nasty comp problems at the moment. Fortunately I'm buildings some new marines at the moment so hopefully I'll have a new tutorial up and running soon answering everyones questions.
In the meantime here's a few painted and assembled marines to assist in construction for now.

Thanks for the congrats, it's much appreciated. I'm Currently working on one of these guys myself but I like to leave the cape on, and his leg greaves are biggerised. That black templar torso is amazing on that body, looks like it was sculpted to match! Great tutorial, wish i had remembered to sculp the shoes before the greaves :P

edit: in fact I've just finished most of it, except for half of a GS chain and the power pack. doghouse, do you mind if i post him in here? just to demonstrate wat can be done with techniques like this and similiar.
