Orkalypse Now (6)

Hi guys,

after the first heads were completed I wanted to mount the new battery packs I built.
Ugh! These little reactors are way too big and bulky...

Even cutting them down doesn't really help :(

So I must go back to the drawing board to design some heavy battery packs for the rifles.

In the meantime the first troopers received knee-pads.

and the remaining 4 heads received first attention.

The Sergeant will get another baret,

any George "Oneeye" received his implant.

Here is a scale shot of the prepared seals for the Purity Seals.

To complete the helmets I placed a small strip of PC on the helmet,

and then smoothened it out.

With a sharp blade I start cutting the outline,

connect the cuts,

and remove the excess PC.

Then a 1mm disk as hinge

and with the needle tool the outline of the visor.


Here you can still see the old outlines of the IG helmet - so he still needs some extra cleanup of the face.

Oneeyes special visor (sorry for the blurry shot)

I also created a InstaMold mold so I can (in theory) quickly create some more helmets.

The remaining troopers also received their knee-pads.

Since I had some PC left I looked into the muzzle flashes. I already know how the ones for the Bolters are done, so I decided to give the laser a go.

Well this first experiment wasn't to my liking :-P

So I tried it again

I want it to look like this one

Hmm, that seems to work.

What do you think?

Since I think they will work, I quickly made all 5.

What do you think?

Well, thanks for your time and I hope you enjoyed todays update.

I look forward to your C&C
