Once you go big, will you ever go back..?

Last weekend I finaly got around to try something new. After some research I came across a nice tutorial on masteroftheforge.com titled "How to make an actual scale Space Marine". And since I hade some plastic Terminators just laying around I thought "hey let's try this".
And here are some pics of my progress last sunday:

There are still some gaps that needs filling and I'm thinking about adding some more raised plasticard details. I'm also working on the backpack. And I'm following the tips from the tutorial so it's going to be a bit bigger than the original size. Amazeingly the standard sized Space Marine head works great with the added size of the mini.

Here we have a comparison shot with a standard sized marine and a standard sized guard.

The title of this post is a bit missleading - I do prefer the standard sized marine when it comes to gaming and armybuilding but the bigger, "true scale" sized marine works great when it comes to "one-offs" and dioramas. Now I just need to decide on which Chapter he's going to be a member of. And I'm really looking forward to paint this one.

Please check out www.masteroftheforge.com for the tutorial.

Back from vacation - back to the workshop and my many projects..

On vacation I had to sample some of the local painting talents of Amsterdam. In the middle of the usual tourist-chaos I found GW Amsterdam to be a relaxed and easygoing retreat.

The "Try the game"-table, with a real nice Blood Angel Flyer.

I had a nice talk with the creator of this one (whose name I regretably have forgotten). It's made of half a Land Raider, most of a Valkyrie flyer and Hbolter turrets from a Predator kit.

I also found some nice Eldar and Nids tucked away in a big display case.

I really regret not getting a better pic of these ones.
Some nice Red Scorpion Space Marines.

A crisp and clean IG Super Heavy supporter.

I'm usualy not a Warhammer Fantasy-fan but this one caught my eye, maybe it was the banner.

On a more personal note I'm back to my own projects. Right now I'm trying to build a small Killteam for The Imperial Guards. I'm thinking two Veteran squads, Last Chancer style!
