Confrontation 40.000 - The Wasps

I guess it's time for me to finally lift the lid of my Confrontation 40k project and show you what I've been up to. So without longer introductions, here's my Confrontation 40k gang, "the Wasps" as I call them, ready to sneak down to the Underhive to do their bidding in the cunning plot.

+ Confrontation 40k - The Wasps +

"What plot?" I hear you asking. Well, lets just keep that as a secret for another week, shall we? I know, that's pretty cruel of me, but I'm not able to reveal any details about the journey that'll happen the next weekend. Not just at the moment. It will all be revealed in time, that I can promise to you...

About the gang. I won't go into any details about their background, names or anything like that. To tell you the truth, even I don't know those things yet. All I know is that the midget is the tyrant leader of the mob and the rest of the gangers are his bodyguards. The gang's signs are the red spot colour in their splashy hairs and bright yellow clothes with black diamond patterns. The bright colours act as a deterrent, telling their foes who they are fighting against.

The members of this lot carry lasguns, laspistols, autoguns, frags, smokes, chainswords and knives for cutting fingers off from those poor bastards who've been unable to pay their depts.

Road To Underhive Part IV

Another sunny weekend spent inside...

Whoa! This has been really intense sculpting weekend for me. I feel this little pressure very inspiring friend to work with=) In order to succeed, I must keep pushing no matter what happens -  if I run into problem, instead of just stepping back and thinking too much about it (like I normally do), I must solve it immediately in order to keep things moving. Also by working with two models simultaneously allows me to move on the second model while the first one is curing.

Working this intensely also made me realize that I want to start write my thoughts down more. Steve used to write number of great articles considering sculpting and the scene around it, but since the Spyglass Asylum has been shut down for about two years now, I haven't been able to found anything similar since.

So I guess I could try to do something about that. I don't have the experience like Steve had when he wrote that stuff, but I feel that I might have few things to say nevertheless. For example I could write about different sculpting mediums (GS, ProCreate,Super Sculpey even digital sculpting) and different styles (plastic miniatures compared to resin/metal ones). I think writing about these things would help me to get better artist in the future.

Right now I can't wait what kind of things the future has to offer for me, so you just wait ;)

Road To Underhive Part III

Working it hard!

Sometimes (happens to me almost too often) you not happy with your sculpting with fresh putty. Fear not as you can always return to the fully cured sculpt armed with some files and synthetic scouring pad! Use the files to sharpen and redifine the shapes, after you have gotten it right, move to scouring pad to smoothen the roughened surface. 

I also use plastic brush like this to polish the surface once Im happy with the reworked areas.

More of those pics tomorrow when there is more to show ;)

Road To Underhive Part II

Getcha' pants!

Trying to achieve that Buddle-schoolish simple & well defined look. Once the putty is fully cured, I will go back to them and reshape the areas Im not happy with file & sand paper. I will add all the details (belt/boot buckles) later, obviously.

My goal for the upcoming weekend is to get the torso parts finished for both figures. After that I will start building hands...

Road To Underhive part I

There will be a Confrontation game played at 7th of September.

I will not reveal any more details about it...

I have decided to put up a warband of three scratch built models for the game.

So far only one is finished but not painted.

I have 29 days to finish the rest

The warband will include :

- Senior Officer Enforcer

- Junior Officer Enforcer (sculpted)

- Riot Ogryn

There will by new posts on daily basis. Please consider this as an opportunity to follow at close distance (& almost in real time) about how I put these pieces together =)

May the gods of greenstuff help me with this...
