Well I've spent a bit more time on the sculpting of Grey Man and it continues to be a real challenge. Coming back to it for new layers is tough as you need to get the putty to adhere to the cured stuff more than it adheres to the tools you are using. Still I finally managed it after much working and shaping.
I think I've messed up the scale of the model though as my figure is more in proportion to a 32-35mm piece. Not the end of the world by any means but something to keep in mind for future work. Also, it's very hard to get the definition that you want sometimes. I definitely need more practise.
Also superglue...I love it and hate it. Something about my presence makes it work like a dream half of the time, and completely fail the other half.
Still I have some of my honrou guard done now. I ended up with two sets after a miscast problem and have converted one chapter champion to have a thunder hammer. It looks pretty good I think.
These are really nicely made models and the only problem I have with them is the gluing together as superglue hates me and epoxy takes ages to dry.
Here is grey man from the front. I've tried to add some shape and musculature on the body and the face has a scar because I messed up his right eye and couldn't figure out how to fix it. You can see around his upper chest where the new layer of putty didn't stick on so easily. The rod in his arm is there so I can model the barrel of a big old gun there. I'll also be trying to make some kind of cool mechanical contrivance for his cyborg arm section.
His back side. It's tough to make the right shape of musculature here and I had fun bulking out his buttocks while my wife looked on over my shoulder ;-)
