It's been a slow week but the lasgunners for the Tyranid Hunters are all at the same stage now:



This pic shows the press-moulded heads that I made so that I could have space inside the helmet to sculpt on each face. These are all in need of faces (obviously), the helmets being filled/cleaned up and then it is just a case of gluing on the arms and packs.

I am thinking that a couple of these will have some facial disfigurement/bionic implants and one may even have a full face-plate to hide his terrible injuries. I have also started a third detachment for my army but I am not in a position to share anything interesting just yet... but it will be fun :) .

Not really... I don't think he has any plans to make them available to the public. He just wants them for a personal project :)

My own Squat miniatures will be different... fully one-piece casts for a start... and much heavier set too.

I have had a dodgy moment with the Eversor Assassin and he ended up massive... so I did this instead... I went and finished the veteran Tyranid hunters :) :

...and so the production line starts again. From leg sculpt, to press moulding and finally to being assembled with plastic components from a Mantic Steel Warrior... all that is needed now is the belt buckle, pouches and holsters to be sorted out and these will be finished:



I have another lump of putty in the mould at the moment and that should be ready to remove tomorrow.

I plan on having six squads of five and that means I need to sculpt five different poses of legs to make every squad have no legs the same. I have already finished the first unit of five in one leg pose, this is the second with a third leg sculpt 'on the corks'. Once I have produced six casts from each of the five leg poses, I will mix them into their final units :)...

Then I will have six units of Squat Hearthguard (count as Space Marine Scouts) :) .

Next up... another leg sculpt to complete :) .

Looking good Inso, great job on those legs.

What's that stuff you're using for press-moulding?

I am using this stuff for the mould:

http://www.greenstuffworld.com/en/26-reusable-blue-stuff

and Milliput to actually put into the mould for the casting.

If you click the link and then on the four stick version, there are a couple of how-to videos on there to show how easy it is :)

lol, I just bought that stuff from greenstuffworld too. They sell some great stuff (I made a fairly big order so shipping was worth it).
They should look good when finished.

These two are the sixth casts of the first two leg sculpts:



They represent Sgt Telion and one of his squad, although they are Hearthguard, just like the rest of the 'counts-as' scouts :)

With the release of the next big boxed game from GW, I saw the new style plastic termies and had a thought...



... so I have bagged a few off Ebay and await their arrival to see what I can make of them :)

I believe the powerclaws are optional, as well.
Your edit looks great Inso, you'll do a grand job.

I was tempted to buy into this, but another boxed game under the painting table would spell doom for my marriage.  :smile:

I was wary of the boxed set too... hence I just got a few termies from Ebay.
