Artscale Combat Squad

I didn’t really get around to making a “work in progress” post about this squad unfortunately the finished pics will have to suffice.

Pretty standard work, all in all. With the exception of the shoulders (I made once then cast nine duplicates using Blu-Stuff) each Space Marine was built in the same way shown in my Tutorial. I’m definitely a believer in using power armour arms rather than the older technique of using terminator arms, sure it’s more work, but the results are always more worthwhile. I’m especially pleased with the Thunder Hammerer’s hands, they came out real nice.

They still require accessories adding but I wasn’t sure the client would want them on or want to add them himself.

    “With the exception of the shoulders (I made once then cast nine duplicates using Blu-Stuff)”
    How did you cast the shoulders???  I am interested because I want to make them all the same base size.  This will allow for less possible deviation in pauldrons.  

    • The best tutorial for casting shoulder pads using Blu-Stuff can be found here on FromTheWarp: http://fromthewarp.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/molding-and-casting-shoulderpads.html

      My own method uses just one piece rather than two, making sure there is excess Green Stuff around the edges that can be trimmed and filed after.

      I’d recommend using a 50/50 mix of Green Stuff and Mulliput. Once cured it can be filed and carved much better than just plain Green Stuff.
