Thor’s Workbench: Chaos Warpsmith Grimtech (PIP #2)

I’ve made a ton of progress on my Chaos Warpsmith, Grimtech, since the first post. Today I’ll show the arms I’m working on.

These aren’t done but the hard parts are. Sorry, that left arm shot is horrible. Anyway, that left arm needs highlights and the right still needs more highlights as well as the Disciples of Twilight emblem on the shoulder.

I’m pretty happy with how the axe is coming along. I decided to try something a bit different from my usual on the power weapon. Normally I have the entire blade part glow but I liked the skull on this one and wanted to let it stand on its own and create some contrast with all the black. Plus, with the arms being magnetized it makes creating the glow reflection on armor tough. I can’t cast a glow on to his torso from the axe because if he’s not using the axe, if I swap in another arm, he then has a glow for no reason or in the wrong location. So, figured I’d go smaller and more subtle this time around. I’m still working on the glow blending as well; nothing is completely done yet.

I do have the backpack/mechatendrils almost done as well. I have some cleanup to do on that first and then I’ll get some shots.

  • The skull looks great! I like how you’ve brought just a little of the glow onto the skull.

    • Thanks.

      Originally it was an accident, the glow going over that far and onto the skull but I liked how it looked so I cleaned it up a bit and kept it. Got to love good accidents like that. Usually it’s the bad type of accident that ruins something on you.
