Just seen my other thread, thanks, I'd thought it had died forever! Not sure whether i'll update it yet, can't find the model on the internet. Not AWOL though, just a two week holiday without internet! It's nice someone noticed my suffering. ;D
Just because I don't post often, doesn't mean I'm not on here - every day - watching you...
Hey again everyone! Apologies for the absence - here's a bit of an update, and there's more to come over the next few days. These guys are Langston and Trethewey, and you can find MarkofTruth and Westrider's descriptions of them in this thread.
I realise they're kind of a mess of mould lines - I have no idea how that happened I was trying out some new rusty effects on some of the metal. Any good?
Hahaha, thanks guys! I'm into placements at medical school now, so looooong working days and pretty long working evenings too. Fun times! This means work is pretty slow, but I will get through everyone eventually. I'll give highlights a bash, but I'm also trying out the dmage effect that Morat ever so kindly provided, so we'll see what wins out
Next up on my table is actually going to be my company commander, Ridgeway, but I think after that it's probably going to be Helmian or Druchi. Getting through them though!
p.s. This is the image Westrider sent me to copy the colour of the bandana, goggles and beardy thing off:
Thanks so much Req! Glad to know I was missed I do plan to be around, just maybe a little less than before :/
Here's a mock up of my company commander - The hunting dogs make an appearance throughout my army, but I'm hoping he looks like he has more of a 'sit back and plan' style of command than the seemingly more popular 'run screaming at the enemy with a big glowy sword' technique. What dya reckon?
GS work and a tissue paper tattered cloak still to come (and i WILL remember the mould lines this time )
left hands the sentinel joystick love this thread but i dont seem to be able to find a ganja smoking, mohawk headed tatooed nutjob named Psycho..........
10 MEN KILLED OVER 40 OF MY FINEST WARRIORS”? Fargho screamed at the cowering Conwrath, “10 MEN MANAGED TO SEND AN ENTIRE COMPANY SCURRYING WITH THEIR TAILS BETWEEN THEIR LEGS”? “Didn’t see you fighting em off”, someone shouted, although Fargho couldn’t identify the speaker.

Suh-weet!!! I look sufficiently psychotic Looks as if you gave me everything I asked for and I'm happy about how everything turned out. Also, I'm loving the base. Good job Scarper. I may have to make up a model of you to field in my army some day
58th Catachan Regiment "The Steelbacks"
To all members of the armed forces of any country in the world, thank you.
Thanks Mark! I'm really glad you like it, apologies it took so long to do!
@happyorange - the dogs are actually 10mm 'giant wolves' from a company called Copplestone Castings (linkage), but they fit the scale perfectly (though they do come to attached to some annoying metal bases and need some clipperwork to remove)
@kerby - You're dead on with the sentinel pilot hand, though i clipped a lever bit off the bottom to make it look more like an auspex type thing as well. And you were saying something about not having any mohawk headed tatooed nutjobs?
Hahaha, sorry Helmian, got another guy made up for you - I'll get round to painting it pretty soon.
This is Ridgeway so far (and Lobo, his canine buddy), but I'm stuck on how to base him. Could I get some ideas from you lot? He's going on a small base, but I don't want it to look cluttered
Apologies for the quality of these pics, they seem to have leached out all the colours (seriously, i spent ages layering the dog). Still, it's dark outside now, and i really wanted to get him online without waiting til tomorrow ;D
As always, please let me know what you think, I've still got time to change him up a bit
Yeah, I noticed that too. Most of his forearm is green stuff, and I ended up glueing the hand to the dog at the wrong frigging angle so it was really awkward to do. Live and learn, I guess. Thanks for the compliments though! I was going for an unusual commander, and I'm hoping it's kind of worked out.
You can't really see from any of the photos, but Lobo is actually partly cybernetic too - he's got a bionic left eye, and an instrument panel just behind it ;D

New update! Just realised I've forgotten to label him, but this is Mandarin, HappyOrange's recruit. He's probably around 25% green stuff, so one of the harder things I've had a bash at so far He looks better in person, internet photos are super frustrating, yadda yadda yadda. Let me know what you think!
And, a BONUS SNEAK PREVIEW of the next guy up. WHO COULD IT BE?!?!
