As I mentioned in my post on Monday I’ve managed to make some progress on my Rebel Grot counts as Ratling Snipers. I had made some progress at that point, sculpting some details using green stuff. Since then I’ve managed to spend a little more time on them. I’ve finished up the details across their chests so that the guns can be glued into their hands. I’ve also made scopes for all of their rifles.
For this one I’ve added a peak to his hood so that the matches the Night Goblin heads. I also added a bag slung over his shoulder. I need to re-sculpt the fingers on his left hand and the thumb on his right so that he’ll hold his rifle properly.
I sculpted a short cape on this one. I thought I’d taken a picture of his back but I can’t find it now. I’ll post some better pictures when I get a chance. His left leg needs to be cleaned up a bit and I have to sculpt new fingers on his right hand.
I finished crawling sniper’s belt before gluing him to his base. I need to resculpt the fingers of his right hand. I’ll probably add a couple of pouches to his belt as well.
Here’s the group shot. Other than the scopes I haven’t done anything new to the two in the rear so I didn’t take individual shots of them. The one on the left will receive a hooded cloak. The one on the right will also receive a short cloak.
That’s where I am right now. I’m hoping to finish the sculpting work this weekend. After that I’ll have all of the infantry I need for my Standoff list so I’ll probably start wrapping up the vehicles. I want to use the airbrush to batch-paint as much as possible so I will finish all of the models first. Then I’ll paint the tanks to get a little more practice with the airbrush before I paint up the infantry.
That’s it for now, thanks for looking!
