Wow, it has been a while since I have posted anything on this blog. Lately, I have been working on this group of Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Space Marines. This is a mixture of some models and bits that I had painted almost 10 years ago and never liked the result and some newer bits and models that include pewter and plastic and Space Marine conversions. You will also notice, if your eye is keen, some mixtures of Khrone Bezerker bits with Iron Warrior bits. Not to mention some completely different model pieces. I have come to call these the Brass Raptors, for some obvious reasons. You can see the above pictures for specific model descriptions and details. One thing you might not be able to notice from these pix is how I put them together. After many years of putting these kits together, and after many breaking apart in multiple moves, I came to realize that the glued joints needed bolstered support. I have used 1/16 thick cut brass rod from my local hobby store. If you are familiar at all with this technique, you know how long it can take and how painfully tedious it can be, especially on pewter bits. Not to mention making holes large enough and deep enough for the rod placement and gluing to be effective. In most of these, I used a hand pin-vise to bore the rod holes, sometimes all the way through the torso to make the arm joints. In the end, I know it was worth the effort since some I knocked over and never even cracked. Some of the models had some warp effect detailed as a multi-colored ooze coming from the very core of these Chaos Marines. The models were all finished with a coat of brushed-on Satin finish acrylic poly. Enjoy! Sharing and comments encouraged and welcomed!
