    Hey there,

    My first take on that model wasn't quite as good. Seeing that I realize I quite evolved in painting

    When I'm home I take more pics of my painted minis!

    Yep. I think there are one or two more, and some almost-Germans (from Austria or so :D) as well.

    Nice cruiser!

    I started with the 3d sculpting based on the TWW2 Saurus and got very frustated with myself. Well guess who's gonna spent more time on the PC the next months :D.

    i also did some pics of my most "recent" space marines. (4 years old). I hope my Lizardmen come soon

    Sorry if I spam but this is way too much fun.

    (On another note: Can I post conversion blogs here too or is it forbidden?)
    I made a simple head piece but the printer service said it's too small. So back to tinkering or setting it on a sprue with other LM gimmicks :)
    [​IMG]
    Meanwhile I convert some Cold Ones to have more raptor like arms (they just seem weird to me)
    When the glue dries and the first piece of green stuff hardens I sculpt the arm and claws

    #Motivationalpost:

    Not really progressing on painting.
    I just kept on building stuff together and using green stuff:
    Feathers mass production for something special:
    [​IMG]
    The Start Collecting Pack could at least contain another "new" body well gonna sculpt myself one now:
    [​IMG]
    Giving DE Cold ones some Lizardmen armour:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have very little time at the moment so I propably won't hit my monthly goals... but well.. having fun is what counts?

    ^ you can use a nail file or something similar to sharpen up the flat sides of the green stuff after it dries a bit.

    Yeah those will be feathers.
    They just need to be cut out. I'm guessing I'll get 3-4 out of one "string"

    Thank you for advice and the compliment.

    I'm still not happy with my work but that might be a problem on my side. Always strife to get a real good quality. But it makes progress real slow as I scrap things on the go and remodel or repaint them.

    Building is awesome. I love tinkering. I find it awesome you have the ability to sculpt a whole new body
