Looks good!
Id add some Chaos arrows out of plasticard to break up all of the space on the barrel, if you wanted a blunderbuss theme

Great ES looks chunky enough to make the earth quake.Is it the photo that makes the lava look a bit flat .

It came out very well, Great Earthshaker Takes Hat off!
The barrel could maybe use a bit of detail, maybe a few lightning bolts or arrows, but not too much! Nice use of the gut plate too.
It could be the lack of light in the picture but the lava looks like it could use a final yellow highlight (though I like to to work right up to final highlight being a yellow/white so that could be just me!).
All in all this is a really good original ES, always good to see originality, so well done greenskin Cheers!

thanks for all the commentsHappy I'm gonna make another eartshaker like that laiterShy and yes, I agree...ES need some detail.. I'm gonna make an arrow or twoTongue

The lava-base is much lighter IRL... Its highlighted up to bad moon yellowBig Grin  ... maybe it looks a bit flat IMO, but I think it will be better after making some more basesHappy

Cheers!

Very innovative and creative idea, to try out the blunderbuss design on a big gun. I like it! Happy

That's a great big blunderbuss. You'd be doing yourself a favour by filing the mold lines off though.

I really like the mouth piece, is it an ogre bit?

Like the blunderbuss feel, the ogre (is it?) mouth really finished the end off well, if you want more detail on the barrel the hammered metal Ishkur used on his light bulb one would look cool.

Like others said. A big fat blunderbuss, bound to make a big bang too! Very nice indeed.

RE: CD-eartshaker '!wallacer 02-13-2008

As others have said, and I heartily endorse, the idea of using a giant blunderbuss as an EarthShaker is inspired.

Prepare to have slaves lavished upon you Cheers!

[edit]  Bah! You're unregistered so I can't give you slaves (curse the luck).
