I was thinking to a high collar, in fact it was the first idea, but at the end I've decided to hold this configuration! Maybe next warrior ;)

Hi all ATT!

News from Onos Industries Laboratories :fear: :fear: :fear:
First Firewarrior with last details added (Color changed on rifle and base):
Image

Now I'm posting some pics of my Fireblade, I've completed him and changed his head (I didn't like so much his first head, so I've sculpted another):
Image

As I said in previous posts, it's sculpted with a mixture of Milliput Terracotta and Green Stuff, the base on the scuplture is a Great Coat Trooper from Wargame Factory, head is scupted by me with Green Stuff and only left arm, right hand and feet are GW:
Image

Head's details:
Image

I've decided to paint his flesh with mustard hue and added a painted war mask with white and red tonality!


What do you think about him? Feedback?

Great reinvention, amongst smart work - I have to critique that the chest plates need more definition about the torso armor on the big guy. :)

I like it, one minor critique is that the extended arm looks really rigid as there doesn't seem to be an elbow joint on the arm. Very nice paint job and really nice concept for the sculpt.

Thank you very much Tael and Paulson!!! :D :D :D

To Tael: I'm in accord with you Tael, armour of the Fireblade is too simple and minimal compared to GW Fireblade, I'm going to commit more on next Fireblades from other colonies ;)

To Paulson: Considering that is a prosthetic arm and the armour in that point is not completely rigid but composit and fits during the movement! I was convincing? :D :P Indeed this is the only explanation that comes to mind because during the sculpting I didn't think to this particular :sad: :P

Thank yu another time for your comments :) :) :)

Thank you very much Chris in the socal!!! It could be consider as a krootox or something similar!

After my last holiday I returned on Kor'Mahali Riders and completed my second rider. Bits come from Firewarriors sprue, barrel of the rifle is made with plasticard as its head, robe and armour instead is made with a mixture of Milliput Terracotta and Black.

Here a pic with my two riders completed, it miss only third rider.

Hi ATT,
During these days I've worked on the last raider and I've started the paintjob on the first.

I've decided to sculpt a female raider, her pose tries to represent the sidesaddle ride, chest sculpting has been hard :P
Image

About painting.. I've tried to paint the camel's flesh with purple tonality in order to give him an alien aura. For fur I've used something swarthy.
Image

What do you think about painted flesh and sculpting?

One note on your anatomy. For the female rider, the breasts (if theirs mimics that of a human's) should be set slightly lower on the chest and should more so slope downward rather than be equally rounded. Also the rider's heads do not seem to allow for much neck room underneath the helmet, and it seems their heads must be proportionally smaller than your other models.

Of course wilderun, this evening I'm going to resculpt the female chest and breasts, I've made a mistake with proportions and with the helmet! ;)

However I've moved on with the painting of the first rider:

Thank for all the comments and critics!

Hi ATT

I've finished with my last battlesuit, now it is the turn of Firewarriors and others. So I've decided to complete my first raider on alien camel :P

This is my first Kor'Mahali raider completed:

Wow, That is unreal. It manages to look alien and yet immediately familiar at the same time.

Hi ATT,

I'm here to show you my last update about my models.
I can say that I completed all my converted Firewarriors and I'm painting also my last converted Gundrone.
In particular it was Firewarrior number two and number five:

And Gundrone numer one and number two:

I've made four .GIF for the post in order to show you in detail the models.

What do you think? Comments and feedbacks are welcome as always :D

Cheers,

It's this kind of thing that makes me think that ATT should have a "like" button, so that people who don't know what to say with substance can show their appreciation for awesome models!
