Artscale Space Marine Casts

In my last post I showed my attempts at making a cast of my long time coming Primarch project. I filled the silicone rubber mold with Green Stuff and the cast I got out of that the next day was actually pretty decent considering. Perhaps because the Green Stuff wasn’t exposed to air when it was curing but the cast was a bit sticky when I removed it, still hardened, but oddly sticky. After a thorough washing I gave it an inspection. There were slight gaps on the legs along the mold line where I’d not added enough Green Stuff, but other than that the cast came useable (with a little attention).

I then decided (as these components aren’t for sale as they are) to get a professional to cast them (go see BattleCast). I’ve had a handful of these made, and Joel at Anvil Industries was happy to use my own mold to do so. Below is the comparison pic to show the quality of the casts next to one another. Now that I have these I’m able to detail them up and attach the arms, heads, etc. I’ll be making more of this type of thing to build up my own Space Marine force.

On an unrelated topic I’ve started work on a regular scale Gabriel Angelos of the Blood Raven chapter and should have an update on that in a few day.

    Hey, cheers for the link! Im amazed at how well the GS version came out, compared to what I would have expected.. (a horific mess…).  still not as good as a pressure cast set up though ;), looking forward to seeing what you do with these!

    Cheers,

    It was well worth getting the resin one cast by the looks of things – I’b defiantely interested in seeing how this project turns out.

    By the way, what do you intend doing with your first GS cast? Will it be used in the future for other projects?

    Great to see some progress! The resin really has come out well!

    Will the Angelos model be a scratch build and then available to buy? Or is It a commission? Very interested as I have a Blood Raven army!

      The Angelos is one of the final commissions on my to do list. It’ll be mostly a conversion.

    so could we soon see the body offered in the online store for us to buy and use for true scales?

    • http://masteroftheforge.com Lamenter

      Not this one no. This is specifically for the Primatch conversion.

      Having said that I am going to have something that will make truescale enthusiasts very happy.

    I followed the link… it goes no where :0 Are they no longer available at Anvil Industries?

    • http://masteroftheforge.com Lamenter

      I think Joel is so busy with his miniature range that he has now stopped the Battlecast service.

      This particular sculpt was never available to buy though.

        Oh thats sad, but ok. I guess I’ll keep trying to make a ‘artscale’ version of my own… I seriously suck at working with the green stuff… I’m pretty sure what green stuff I have left is useless it’s been in the freezer for 4 months now…
