    Hey Guys!


    Got this in the mail the other day and it is a beauty! The face measures up to roughly 150mm scale, and the width of this bust is almost twice the size of a 200mm bust, its huge!

    Started painting the face, in acrylics as always, I tried a new mix and a lot bolder contrast on this one, and I am pretty happy with it and will experiment further with this mix.

    Let me know what you think of it!

    Here is some more pics after a little more painting. The yellow has only received a couple of coats so far. The gray is basically done, will do some weathering on it once the rest is finished. I want to do a banged up Terminator!

    Hey Anders,

    Nice to have you back and I agree this is some of your best work. I think the only thing that I would do is maybe add some hair strans coming out from the forehead. Just some very tiny ones to show a few here and there. This would help break up the hairline.

    Anyway, nice work.

    Hey Guys!

    Thanks for your comments!


    Joe,

    That might be a good idea! The hair is sculpted like 'straight up', a real tight military style buzz with really square edges, so Im not sure excactly how I would go about it, any suggesstions? Just paint some straight lines down?


    Rob,

    This is a beauty of a bust, I love the ForgeWorld stuff!

    Hey Anders
    nice job as usual. Once again, I am curious about where you purchased this kit from. I know it is a Forgeworld kit from england, but did you order direct or from a local Games Workshop outlet? I really like some of their busts, but what is shipping like from england?
    Thanks

    Hey Rob!

    Thanks :)


    I am not sure where you can get these at as I got it from Thomas (Grizzly) in a trade we did. I will ask him next time I get a chance and let you know.

    Hey Anders,GREAT JOB on the Space Wolf Terminator (y) (y)!! I would imagine in the 40K universe,these "supermen" would keep a tight rein on their hairstyle,no loose strands anywhere ! Anyhow,having a few loose hairs will certainly help to break-up the monotony of the bust alittle. Just my 2 cents worth.Cheers !
