Hello. One quick post before i take another short break.

Here is the finished novamarines squad.
Terrible conditions for taking photos today, it was so grey and dark outside and i had already packed my little light box thing.

Anyway this photo will have to do as i absolutely have to finish moving into my new house and set up my new studio, so expect my next post to filled with the sort of glee and excitement usually reserved for hyperactive schoolgirls.

So then, a week or two off, and then i plan to put up the tutorial i mentioned before and i want to give my blog an overhaul and upload some of the stuff i've been meaning to post for the last few months.
So all in all, lots to look forward to.

...and again with the Novamarines (part 4)

Okay, 5 done and 5 more almost done.
For a combination of reasons this has taken sligtly longer than expected.
On the Sergeant i have added a few extra details of the level that i would normally reserve for 'display' models. They didn't really come out too well in the pictures - my picture taking skills and equipment still need work, but hopefully the client will appreciate the realistic shading and detailed scratches and weathering on parts of this model. Going into this level of detail on every model was a job beyond the agreed scope and timescale of this commission though. The Sgt is a bit of a centerpiece model for the unit so i threw in some bonus brushwork, contributing to the delay.

Moving to my new home has taken up a large amount of my spare time. I couldn't put it off long enough to complete this project before i had to start moving and my desks and modelling stuff is literally being packed the moment i've finished! This also has caused me to be taking a litlle longer than planned. So My next post will be the finished squad and then after an inevitable couple of weeks of disruption and settling in, i'll be back with some more detailed posts.

First marine finished earlier today. Still needs basing and perhaps a little weathering.

Longer post and better pics when more are done....
