Scratch building with the best.

Hi All,

(Be warned the Pictures are very LARGE)
Well the lack of updates is over with a whirling dervish of a weekend filled with nephews and nieces valentine’s day and double shifts I can talk about my new project.
While bouncing around the net I came across these interesting concept arts for the masters of the chapter.

I really like the second( from the lefts) shoulder pads and torso and the last ones chest piece, so I was thinking of combining those two to make one model with the short sword and long sword combo but the long in the opposite hand and the short sword held in a reverse grip like a dagger. For a More gun slinger aspect I was going to add gun holster more like the heavy duty six shooter. (Much like an ork shot just a little better looking)

no drawing yet, might not be one.

Here We Go:
Okay I took regular Torso parts. Cut the chest and back in half and added 2mm of styrene and one to the middle, after trimming down the uneven edges. Then I shaved off the rounded part that is usually the cup edges that you would attach the legs with. Cut two back packs in half to make a much larger pack.

Attached a cut piece of 5/8ths styrene tube filed it down to a more organic shape. Used a step down for the crotch, and then stepped down till I got to the cross piece which I used to pivot the legs with. Then I used the same method making them slightly larger then a normal marines, I posed him on one of my termies base, don't know if I am going to use regular marine arms or make my own. Haven't added feet, but I think it is shaping up well.
Going to use green stuff to fill in the spaces and the flat surface will make a good base to work with when I start detailing the torso and lower legs with the Posce ( French word for pocket, the little stylized alcoves that have the skulls and decorations in them) style that seems to be everywhere on space marines armor.

Added Greenstuff to it still lacking the arm. Chaplain is there for size comparison.

If you’re nice I’ll show you my titan.
