New updates comming mext week

Sorry as some of you may realised I didn't post anything last week, I just made a sudden not planed trip back to Spain.

I come back this Sunday and I promised I will have eldar and tyranids updates next week.
I have been working a bit last week and I confirmed I can have the tyranids prow I always wanted, It is just a bit difficult as I have to put every tooth but you will see.
I want to post a tutorial for anyone who want to have it or just want to make a worm or anything.
And just talking in specialist games I had a very nasty idea. In reality I had already planned this, This is why I invented my space city technic. In reality it was for an even bigger project but I still cannot even think on it , I dont have space in my house. Maybe in 5 years.
I will do the real tempestus shipyard, I want to do something this big since I saw this.
I though, OK i don't have that many spare laser cannons, but actually looking at it I don't like it, I can do something even better without willing emperor titan shoulders.
And I have a reference to work. (I guess from rogue trader RPG)

I like a lot this concept It really kick the ass of the other, a space shipyard is so enormous that It is just impossible to build something so organise and symmetric. We will see, but as you can see a space city is just a mater of ten minutes, the only problem I have while doing them is that I usually waste resin,(It is always a lot less resin than estimated) and I need more pastiline.
Unfortunately, for my readers, not for me, I will have again 2 weeks vacations in Christmas so I have just 2-3 weeks to work a bit.Witch means the space hulk and the tyranid ships will be a new years project.

Anyway sorry for not updating the blog last week end, I will prepare a series of entries just to aboid this to happend.

Tyranids incoming now R&D project

As I showed last week I have started with tyranids to avoid madness with the other project.

The good thing is that I know what to do and how to do it more or less, the difference this time is that I will start with what in the past almost killed all my expectations, and that is mouths.

I have a great bunch of ideas of what do I want on my tyranids mouths and I will take all the time in the world to do it.

Anyway I spected that to be more or less fast so time will say.
New multipart planet devourer, big a hell, a lot more than the old one but with a shape that make it easyer for transport.

 As well the hive ship, cruiser and emergent drone are prepared for the new experiments.

eldar update, sails and bridge.

Well well my job was agains all my projects this week but I still made some stuff.
And here I am sunday night and still havent writen my weekly post.

I have tested how to finish the sails, (To at least finish something) and I am very happy,

Here we got the naiad class ships, 
 And here the battleship growing in size with what I spect to be a nice confortable bridge for my eldar heroes :)
 The sail just awating for gems and a coupling structure, all in green stuff with I have plenty experience.

short update, starting with tyranids while finishing the eldar battleship

 As expected working with the eldar battleship has become really boring, not just because the slow results but because any time I change anything I have to wait until the next day to just continue so I am still going but I need something to do meanwhile.
This new motors doesn't convince me much, I guess I will need to buy some extra plasticard tubes.

So I started with my last tyranid try, this time It is going to take a lot longer due to the fact that I want perfection, I will invest not just my energy but all the knowledge I have accumulated this years.

 As you can see this time I have a reference for doing the ships shape, as well the battleship are going to be multicomponent, so I will have different options.

Also I have started with the big guys, and despite I use aluminum paper for the interiors I have run out of paper paste doing in the structure so you can figure put how big It is. I hope It can resist Its own weigth

Unfortunately I don't have much time this week, I have visitors in my place, so I decided to make something fast.
As I am about to start with the space hulk, I wanted to taste the resin, just in case it has caducated.

Result, new space port to my collection.


Very nice result for just 20 mins of work
If you want to know how have I did this just take a look on this guide.

Eldar ships, detail process

Unfortunately I was sick this week and I haven't worked much, :( sorry.
But not everything is bad, the sandpaper arrived and I could start with the final phase of eldar ships.
Actually I realized How to work with the white milliput to get a better result.
My solution was mixing it with greenstuff. and this are the results.
At this moment this is the most critical part because is just boring to death. But I will make all my efforts to finish this ships.

1st the wyrm class battleship, the prow is nearly finished just some details to add holes to fill and that stuff. I am now working to do the  center and rear points.

  As you can se the main prow weapons are done, just figuring up where and how should I put the pulsars.
I also made the solar sails for the Nadiad ships, you can see them near the imperial transports.

And finally a familly photo.

I may post once more tomorrow, I am about to start with the space hulk and still have some tutorials prepared to be posted.

Plans for next week

Unfortunately I still have to wait the sandpaper to arrive, so It have to stop a bit the production.

But there is nothing to worry about, that actually is giving me more time to prepare new stuff.
I have a brand new table witch is enormous, since now I will have a lot more space and light.
As well I anounce now that in the future I will also make videos, starting with this one witch I will start recording this next week.

So in a future you will be able to se my tutorials with extra support in case you want to do it.

As well it will take me a lot of time to post this new project, as it is going to be the biggest ship I have ever built,( and you may have seen the planet devourer ;) ).
For the moment just the main concept, thanks to dawn of war retribution.

I am not sure if it is going to be a great fail or not, the initial structure is 45cms long, (18 inches) .

As you will know if don't know already I like big things :D (Nothing to compensate :P )
Also as well is going ot be my first multi part ship. 
Anyway I promise an update in the forum every weekend, even If I couldn't work.

(Eld) Wyrm class battleship (Phase 3, part 1) learning

Ok I am going to updade the blog because phase 3 is going to be long, I am starting practicing with the miliput white and I am still extremly upset, yea, in general this is always like this, you should dee mi first mini, :)
This is the first result.

I know I know

:D I guess I didn't mix well the part as both have the same colour or white miliput is just that b******t, as more experience scultors recomend it I will give it more tries.

The part of it is that plasticard has given me really good result on my first try.

 But after some work

I am already designing the new weapon kit, yes kit, witch will give me all the options for eldar battleships.

-Wyrm battleship
       4 Port-starboard Pulsar Lances, 16 Prow Weapons Battery, 8 Keel Torpedoes
       6 Port-starboard Pulsar Lances, 16 Prow Weapons Battery, 

-The wild serpent.
       2 Prow Pulsar Lance, Prow Torpedoes, Keel Launch Bay, Keel Weapons Battery.

Ok this make modelling extremely difficult, so I guess I will have to make 2 kits, and maybe a third one for the void raven.

For the moment:
-Prow weapons batteries,  just like the cruisers but a little bit bigger.
-the keel is going to be divided in 3 parts, center (keel), and left-right (port-starboard)

I have to think on the wild serpent, cause it is impossible to make them match and a keel batteries is not viable at the moment.
We will se If I find a solution.

(Eld) Wyrm class battleship (Phases 1 and 2)

In BFG R there is a new ship, a battleship and here is my idea.
Depending on the result I may make also a grand cruiser, witch I don't have. We will see.

First of all the initial draft
 Plasticard guide
Comparison with other ships+ first filling

 Actual status of the ship
And a family photo.

Again just like the others I am waiting for the putty to start with phase 3

(Eld) Nadiad class ships (Eldar transport and heavy transport) phase 2

OK here is phase two, filling material.

Unfortunately I am still waiting  the putty so I must stop, but I have plenty of things in mind.

This were the first process of the filling, the result was two fat ass ships :)

 The escort fat ass version
 Sorry about the photo, I didn't realiced of it and now is to late to fix it.

I just wanted to test how would they look like with the sails

An after some surgery the fat ass is no longer a problem.

Next week (If the putty arrives) details phase.
