Saturday Snapshot, April 14

It's been a very busy week for me so I've had little time for hobby with all the studying I'm doing. I did manage to add some weathering powders to one model though. I know, it's not much.

But even more important than that, I found a set of arms for my second scratchbuilt model! After building my first one, the slightly oversized Tyranid spore mine thingy, I've been dying to try my hand at it again. This time I picked something from a completely different army... Grey Knights.

My very first scratchbuild attempt

I've been looking all over the place for a set of arms that would work and I've finally found a pair. While they aren't perfect, the fact that I got them from my bits box makes the price just right. You have no idea how happy this makes me. As soon as I get them added and the shoulderpads made, I'll be showing my new model off in its entirety.

He's there on the desk right now missing his arms.

  1. Did you use Masq-Mini´s Tube Tool for the tentacles? Looks pretty sharp!

  2. Always good to see more sculpting stuff, you definitely got me curious to see what it actually is going to be ;-)

  3. Zaphod Beeblebrox: Nope, I went with Green Stuff Industries. I prefer their tool over Masq-Mini for the way it is built and the handle on it. I've found the tool to be sturdier and easier to use. and now that they have three options, it's a win for me.

    Hephesto: He's based off some artwork that I thought was cool. Then I tried to figure out what army he would be used in.
    Pics to come in the next few weeks.

  4. looks pretty good. Still need to order such a tool for myself but bene putting it off for months now.

    Seeing how you make use of it makes me almost order one :P

  5. Elzo: If you're going to order just one, get the SAW-020 from Green Stuff Industries. If you can sport for all three in the kit, it's obviously worth the price and gives you much more variety. The one piece will get you super fine ribbing on tubes and is the easiest one the market to work with I think.
    It's my go to tube maker.

  6. Didn't realize he finally added the 2 additional sizes. Just ordered mine now. Can't wait to try it out.

  7. The Harrower: SAW-020 is where it's at. Now that I have mine, I keep looking for ways to add tubes and such to models.
