RE: Ishkur's Dawi Zharr projectIshkur Cinderhat 03-17-2009

Well, here it is. The Shatterer Beast, my GH8 entry. Takes Hat off













I built the thing from scratch using loads of fimo, plaster, styrene strips, green stuff and a few bitz from 40k. I made all the parts for one leg, then reproduced it in resin. The daemon breath rifle fusileers are also 100% homemade. For the other crewmen I built the bodies myself and finished them with a few spare bitz.











Since I will probably want to use this beastie as a mammoth-proxy in my WoC army (so that it will at least see *some* action one day), I'll add some more crewmen - maybe blunderbussers - later, to have a full 10-man unit on the platform. The mortar is just for decoration and because I felt the whole thing would seem to have too little firepower with only the riflemen on board. Big Grin

It is a fantastic model and thanks for sharing with us some insight into how it was made. I particularly like the beaten metal effect and was wondering how you had achieved it ?

All those dents have been "hammered" into the soft fimo before baking with a pen's round end. It's the same technique that I used on my earthshaker - of course on a much larger surface! ^^

RE: Ishkur's Dawi Zharr projectUbertechie 03-17-2009

Ishkur - thanks again for sharing - the metal I think personally is what makes the model - to many times you see large pieces like this with big areas of no detail which is plain unrealistic  - the effect you have used makes the model more realistic(?) and gives it a sense of purpose and age.

That is a really cool piece of work! It's intimidating to say the least (in more then one sense).


Does one of the crew have Empire arms??? Or is it just my eyes?

Very nice to see some close ups, and it becomes quickly apparent how much work went into this... not that there was ever doubt... just the question of how much.

@Swiss: the steersman has a dwarf arm and a Chaos Space Marine arm, once I had finished the fusileer I knew I'm no good at sculpting hands. ^^

Once again congrats, Ishkur. It's a remarkable entry - and as alway - so well preformed Takes Hat off

And I like your new style for dwarfs a lot.

Could we see some close up's of the painted Blunderbusses as well? - you can't really see them in the overall pictures - and I find them to be some of your best sculpts ever, so please ..?? - would you please do that for meBig Grin

Of course I do that for you! Takes Hat off

Well I'm not turning my back on big hats. Respect to the Hat! I just wanted to keep the warmachine crews with masks/helmets as per the Earthshaker, so I opted for that design.



The fusileers wield some kind of heavy shooty weapon, I call them the Daemon Breath Rifles. Eventually all the shooting attacks from that platform will be handled like throwing axes (if I use it as a Chaos Mammoth) so it's not that important, but I liked the idea to give them something more arcane than a blunderbuss. ^^



I'm not really satisfied with the helmets of the fusileers, something a bit more scary would have been cool, but I'm not good at that - yet.

Thx for close ups, Ishkur Takes Hat off

I know you are not giving up the hats Happy - but it's still nice to see you try out masks for a change - also for regular troopers Wink Those fusileers are amazing - I really love there daemonic rifles - sadly they would never rank up in a unit of BBs. A the 2 crewmen áre also very impressive.

No, I actually think he means Earthshaker - his own Earthshaker of course Wink

But it the same s*** really Big Grin - as Ishkur has mainly used the the Hell Cannon Crews for his own take on ES crews.
