Artscale Space Marine Combat Squad

Well it’s been far far too long since my last post. Crazy times of late have meant my priorities have had to lie elsewhere. But now I’m back on track and focused on new things…

Starting with this Space Marine Combat Squad. I thought about posting an update on this squad last week but procrastinated over it and decided to just finish them first. As you can see each model uses the same resin cast bodies I had made for a previous Primarch project, but with each heavily remodelled.

The brief was for a 5 man combat squad in Mark VII armour with all the trimmings. I used my standard approach to making Artscale Space Marines, most of which can be found in the Tutorial. Beyond that I don’t think there’s anything unusual worth mentioning. The shoulder icons, chapter badge and chest eagle where all sculpted once and then replicated using a Blu-Stuff mold. It’s not exactly an easy thing to do but the results are certainly satisfying once you know what you’re doing (it’s mostly about using a really delicate touch).

The client wants to base them himself, hence the absence of bases.

    How much do you generally charge for this sort of thing? And do you only mould with Blue Stuff or do you use other things too? And what did you make the grey part out of? Sorry for all the questions, I’m finding everything on this site (especially the Artscale Space Marines) extremely interesting. I’ve never really thought about paying someone to make models for me before… Good idea though.

    Should I maybe email you about this sort of thing?

      Sorry, but this is really the last of the commission work. I may occasionally put one of my own collection up for sale, but unfortunately commissions are just too time consuming and I’d like to spend time on other things now.

        Thats fair enough. For curiosity sake, what would you of charged for a single model Art Scale Space Marine?

    Would you sell the basic cast you used on this squad of Marines for people to use to true scale?

      No, but what I’m working on will be better…. ie: multi-part, poseable and several different styles.

      Things like the chest eagle is something I’m hoping to include in the Artscale Terminator tutorial. Essentially it’s all about layers, but I’ll try to show how I do it.
