Ok, that's quite enough sitting around from me. Time to work on Magnus.

Today - the legs.
I intend to wrap a robe around them, but I was going to leave it open at the front so he wouldn't look too similar to Mortarion. This means we need to do something about his feet and hobo pants.

My initial plan was to use the arm guards of the plastic Daemon Prince (the ones with the face on them) as shinguards, and sculpt some sandals.
Anyone have better ideas?

At least make it misnamed reaction images or something.
Spiderman is fun and all, but I see those way too often.
I probably COULD paint it. Thing is, someone could paint it a lot better, and would probably be willing to do so for me. This would result in a far better final product.
See: the badly painted Looted Carnifex.
Also, a sample of what is probably my best paint ever.
I don't archive my own stuff, and the last thead on sup/tg/ to have me tagged is a Emperor's Nightmare thread where I discussed converting some EN minis.
Before that, the previous one is last year's Xmas thread, so no, I doubt they are archived anywhere.
Bunch of my older threads are in there though. Not sure if my quality has gone down or if the people who archived my stuff have left, but in either case, no, not archived.

If the legs/ass are being a pain, why not go the other route entirely? Like, giving him a Flamer's lower body, or make his legs melted into a large, spiky Tzeench disc?

Maybe a tabard with heiroglyphs carved/embossed onto it? If you brought the material around at the waist, you'd cover that massive join, and if it was just a tabard at the front and the back it wouldn't be too cloaky. Dunno how that design fits with the hobo pants though.

>> No.15756803

Thanks mate.
Don't really know what else to say to that.
To me, those were always the most definign feature about Magnus.
I mostly don't want to ruin my good conversion with bad paint. I have a full Blood Ravens army on standby to practice on.
Also, the ever helpful That Paint Guy is doing my Primarchs for me. I might look into more painting contracts after all the Daemons are done.
Those were discussed, but Mortarion is already doing the torso-on-tornado look. Since they share the torso bit, I need to give magnus proper legs to make him look different.
Other than that, good idea.
Tabard might work. I'm thinking about taking the open robe look used by some Dark Angels. Possibly I might layer 2 robes over eachother and not give him much visible legs at all.
As for wings, Galrauch is my current top idea.
Well, there we go then.
Nope, his arm (and legs, and neck, and sword) will be fixed after Lorgar is done, who is next in line after Fulgrim, who must wait until Magnus is done.
As stated, it's a good plan, but really hard to do without making him look a lot like Mortarion.

Anyway conversion-friend, keep up the good work, these conversions are truly stellar. I hope you send them off to get professionally painted.

>13 mins
A friend of mine is a historyfag and a painter. He gave it to me as a gift. It's a copy of some obscure painting of Hitler made by an art student in the 40's. He told me he saw a picture of it in some book and wanted to reproduce it, since the proginal was probably lost, and he liked it.
I avoid large sculpts for 2 reasons: I don't stock lots of GS at once, and the only things I can use GS for are filling holes and sculpting fur.
As with painting, I could learn to be a better sculpter, but I'd need sacrificial projects to practice on, rather than ruining my good models.
Someone always does.
At least he went the polite route rather than sagebombing the thread calling me a neo-nazi.

Its a roll cage for when he trips over his torn hobo pants. He'll just flip right over back on to his feet.

>> No.15756881

Gee, might that have something to do with the fact that I intend to cover them up? Like I explained in the very first post?
No, I'm sure I was going to leave it like this and call it done.
Fun fact: The original plan was to give him a robe made out of corpses, or a CORPSE TORNADO if you will.
Hmm, I'll see if I can get that to look right.
I do have a paypal, but somehow I never really felt like it was very correct to beg for money on /tg/, even if it was going to be used on future projects.
Speaking of which, I need to raise about 50£ for the FW shoulderpads I need for Round 3 of Project: Primarchs.
If anyone thinks they might want to buy something off me (or just donate cash, but I don't expect anyone to do so), I can post my gallery and my paypal.

>> No.15756893

Amazingly, that was my plan.
Or, well, soaked tissue, but still.
I do have fuckloads of TK bits left over from the 2 Necrosphinxes. So yeah, I'll probably use those on the robe a lot.

While imaginative, your greenstuff/kitbashing skills are rudimentary at best. Going through your blog I've noticed a lot of unfilled gaps, especially on your commissions or models you've sold.

Artistic lisence and bitz limitations.

There are lots of small things here and there that go against the fluff, but I don't really mind them that much.
For instance, Dorn has a 'stache, Mortarion has a bionic eye, Horus has hair, etc.
After the Daemons are done, I'll have a fixing round on the Primarchs.
-New halo and hip plates for Lorgar
-Back horns on Magnus
-New arms for Konrad
-New arms, details and cape for Khan
-New pads, details and arms for Lion
-New pads, details and arms for Rowboat
-Total rebuilds of Sanguinius, Vulkan, Corax and Ferrus

Seriously, gtfo.

What business is it of yours who he sells to and who buys it? Vast majority of the conversions i've seen are really awesome and definetly not the norm you see in the game, as would most people who follow Scriptarius. I am by no means a fanboy of his, but i appreciate the work he puts into these projects and have not seen anyone else do a better job of making the primarchs (which is no small task in itself)

Honestly why do you even bother to post such pointless critiscism? He has already stated NUMEROUS times his reasoning to not paint/scult more.

Some of those photos are WIP shots, some models were never 100% done anyway. Really, the whole gallery is full of little marks of lazyness, since I never expected to use it to sell my services or seek a job or anything.
As for the commissions, those were a rather short-lived venture. At least everyone who bought a mini was happy with it (or at least told me so). All the buyers were from /tg/, as I don't really actively hang out anywhere else.
And yes, as I already mentioned in this thread, my greenstuffing is on par with my painting. Lack of practice means I can't really do anything more than fur and gap filling, and even then I might forget some gaps.
I do know I need to improve a lot if I want to be a truely high-tier mini artist. Thing is, I never really came into this wanting to be the very best like noone ever was. My stuff was always fairly simple and easy to copy, and this has always been my intention.
For an example of this, compare these Primarchs to mine. They have lots of custom sculpted parts and great paintjobs. They are objectively better than mine, but I like mine because anyone with the parts could make a similar set. I seek to do the same with my conversion advice.
...why did I turn a simple "I agree with your points, thanks for bringing them up" reply into a novel?
Not really sure. Sorry about that.

TL;DR: Yeah, I need a lot more practice if I want to be a good sculpter or painter.

Fun fact: While the tradition of /tg/canon has changed a bit over the years, now focusing more on armies and systems rather than individuals, I was going to write up a short story of the tech-adept Scriptarius and how he became to hold all his titles.
It would be based off the actual events of my time on /tg/, modified to fit the 40k setting.
Problem is, after looking at it I realized it came off reeking of near mary sueness.
Among the worst offenders were the part where the Techprist protagonist escapes his Chaos captors and ends up living with some Orks who keep him around because the Meks like him. (I left /b/ for /tg/, and even though I namefagged people accepted me because I made conversion threads)
And later he builds a Titan on a desolate planet he names The Oven of War.
I'm here to serve, not to rule. And don't take that as a bible quote. It's honestly how I try to work here.

Decidedly so. Like a shoeless hipster in an internet bar.

It does it almost amazingly well.
It did turn out quite well.
As for the feet, right now it looks like either the sharp-tip boots or the sandals.

Why not just, ya know, NOT USE the hobo pants? It's a really ugly bit that's really out of place, and also with the way the hips are set it looks really fucked and unnatural.

I'm sure there are other legs out there that you wouldn't have to fight so hard.

@ scriptarius, are there anyway to toughen the tissue to be used as robe so no GSing would be involved?

>> No.15759067

The key reasons I went with the hobo pants are that 1) I had them on hand, saving me a shopping trip and 2) they were the correct size for my needs.
Beyond resorting to using 3rd party stuff or cannibalizing action figures, I can't think of all that many humanoid legs of the same size.
And in the end, I like how it turned out.
I could layer some glue over it, or use a second tissue. However more tissue would make it look thicker as well.

Well not much I can do to the robe for the rest of the night since it seems to be slow to dry.

So, arms, head, legs, bling.
Right now I think his robe needs some extra TK decor, and his left hand needs... something.
I like the head as it is, but the hair needs to be made properly and not just with blutac.

>> No.15759349

I liked the previous head
I like the one arm without armor, maybe the other should be armored for contrast since it has the glave(this is ma fightin arm)

The hobo pants are a non-issue.
The feet on the other hand...
I'm wondering why you didn't use Lord of Change talons instead of the fuck-ugly giant hobo-feet. That said, the robe/towel looks nice.

I was thinking for the hobo pants you could just green stuff demonic faces and what not on them, I mean he is devoted to tzeentch.

>> No.15760293

I could try adding some Horror bits to them, like faces.

If you dont mind my asking, how do you afford all this stuff?

How much of your 'budget' goes on kits?

Is this your main hobby in terms of time/expenses?

I have seen your corner of sprues etc, but you must spend a fortune on kits for new parts.

>> No.15764142

I was going to ask about the staff myself; was trying to describe some of your recent conversions to my gaming buddies but realized I didn't know half the bits you used. As for the giant legs, I think they're completely fine if you cover them with the folded robe and I feel the "giant" feet are fine, though sandals would give him a little height and add to the Egyptian feel of the model as a whole.

>> No.15767411

Yeah, it's my main hobby. I do spend quitw a bit on kits, but that's what hobbies are for.
The only other things I really burn money on are video games and drinking.
If there are any other bits you'd like me to ID, I'd be happy to do so.

Hey Scriptarius.
Hey hey Scriptarius.

Did you show the littlest warboss my picture?

Just want to say rock on, been a fan of your work for a while and think you do a pretty damn good job within your limitations.

How's the progress on getting your models painted going? I know Paintguy isn't the most motivated of people, but he's become a pretty damn good painter with all his free time.

>> No.15767770

He does a lovely job, doubly so seeing as he has other things to do as well.
The main problem is time zones, which leave us a very limtied window to communicate in.

He's playing Black Ops now and he'll probably be up for another half hour, if you want to pester him.

>> No.15767828

I believe I heard you mention you work as a developer for a video game company. I may be completely wrong, but if so, whats your companies name?

Also, you could scavenge the feet from the necrosphinx for his feet. I think you'd have to do some greenstuffing to get the feet bent the right way, but they look more egyptian.

>> No.15768518

The company I work for is called Supercell, although I'll only be there for one more week.
Good call on the feet, I'll give it a shot.

>> No.15768620

GW should just hire Scriptarius to design their stuff for them. He's clearly better at it than they are.

Now if only he'd do some IG work. :(
SPASE MAHREENS get all the fun.

>> No.15768638

The reason for that is simple: Marine kits are abundant and fit together well. They are also easy to spice up with other bits.
I do have an IG army in the works, but it probably won't have anything special beyond being all-greatcoat winter Cadians.

>> No.15768726

No fancy weapons for the officers?
Lets be honest, they're the only ones who can afford them.
