Artscale Terminator Chaplain

This particular conversion was part of the Mark V army I was commission to build. There’s pic of an Assault Terminator on page 31 of the 4th Ed. SM Codex with riveted legs armour. That’s what I tried to capture here, that there is an extra layer of armour riveted onto his normal Terminator suit, so the greaves are larger than usual....

Artscale Chaplain

This particular conversion is for the Mark V army I’ve spent an age working on. Pretty straight forward really. The helm is from GW’s biker chaplain (accessory mounted on back of the bike) that’s been sitting in my bitz box for 12 years! The custom crozius is a power axe with the iron halo taken from the sanguinor model. Not much...

Artscale Mark V Pedro Kantor

This is one of a few characters to lead the Mark V artscale army I’ve been working on. This one is a counts as Pedro Kantor. I’ve tried to give him an authorative commanding pose, ordering his troops to move their asses to the objective. I really wanted to try another scratch built power fist after the one I made for my Huron...

Artscale Mark V Devastator Squad

Click to enlarge. As part of the Mark V armoured Space Marine army I’ve been building for over a year now I present the Devastator Squad. A large amount of sculpting per model has kept me really busy. Note: some of the shoulder pads are missing on the above pic because the client was to supply his own. As part of the criteria for this squad the client asked for the sergeant to be holding a pair of binoculars up to his face, which has actually worked out simpler than I thought. Finally able to make some progress on this squad. All the studs and cabling just mean these take forever to make (Mark V’s are going to be a rarity in my Lamenters force I can tell you that much). This is the basic 5 man squad with four missile launchers and I...

Artscale Space Marine Scouts

This squad was my first attempt at truescale Space Marine Scouts. At first I just expected them to be a very simple conversion requiring nothing more than slightly lengthened legs. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case as the lengthened plastic legs turned out still too short and a bit feeble looking. My approach then was two fold. Increase the height and mass of the torso and make completely new scaled up pairs of legs. The torsos were made by chopping the breather tubes from the front of the scout torso component and then completely removing the front of said torso and replacing it with a chest piece from a regular power armoured Space Marine. The breather tubes can then (with a little trimming) fit back on top. This made the torso both...

Artscale Mark V Assault Squad

This is the finished Assault Squad built in Artscale for an entire Mark V Artscale army. Much like the previous 2 (Squad 1 & Squad 2) squads I followed a modified version of the Artscale Tutorial. The nice thing about Assault Squads is that you have far more options when it comes to posing the legs, and I’m a big fan of having...

Artscale Terminator Squad

To date this is the only Terminator squad I have done in Artscale. Note: the above photo shows the models not quite finished but I wanted to include a picture of the Bane-Raider in here This squad was a continuation of the first prototype Artscale Terminator. All the models had magentized arms and shoulder pads allowing them to swap...

Artscale Mark V Tactical Squad (2)

This squad was done as part of a commission for a full army of Artscale Space Marines all in Mark V armour. You can find all posts pertaining to that army here. The client who commissioned this squad requested that they be striding forward. On the majority of the figures I’ve tried to position the legs into striding poses, or at least a little more dynamic than the usual generic Space Marine pose. The positioning of the arms and heads also play a large part on the dynamics of each figure. Note: half the shoulder pads are missing on the main pic because the client is providing his own. The backpacks were made using a different technique than those on the previous squad. All the helmets were converted from a specific Mark VII helm with...

Artscale Mark V Tactical Squad (1)

Sorry no WIP pics for this squad, I was in such a rush to complete them I forgot all about it. This squad was done as part of a commission for a full army of Artscale Space Marines all in Mark V armour. You can find all posts pertaining to that army here. All the models are fully WYSIWYG, mounted on 40mm bases rather than my usual 30mm. Although these were quite difficult to make, I found myself wanting to keep them (I picture them as an Ultramarine honour guard, but that’s just me) which I think is a good thing for anyone working on commissions. Each model was made using the basic Artscale Tutorial with modifications to account for the details of Mark V power armour. I’ve also posted a Mini Tutorial on how to make Mark V helms...
