So I posted this image last week that showed the Triumvirate of the blog authors. I have been making some stellar progress on my homage, been working on all three but wanted to get at least one of them finished for the Azazel’s Jewel of July.

I decided to finish my homage first naturally.

I have been trying to fit all the authors into my army.

This is Magni Warbringer (me).

I chose a techmarine as my type of space marine being an engineer and spending a lot of time learning all sort of maintenance of large equipment the techmarine was suitable for me.

WIP

I chose the iron preist model as he pose is cool and gives me a good start at converting and green stuff again as it’s been ages due to buying the house.

Here are some work in progress shots. I did get some help from Pandorasbitsbox for the green stuff on the dragonhead claw.

I green stuffed two head’s the beard nd the hair and liked this one for this model. I’m thinking of building a Primaris techmarine with the other head.

I then used the airbrush to build up the green which I’m starting to get a bit more accustomed with. I also used the airbrush to do the search light and the power axe glowing hot.

The tabbard I used a blu stuff mould from Vulkan to make the tabbard. I love blu stuff works so well, mix it up and then press it wait a minute and it’s cured enough to pull off. Leave it overnight and it’s then hard enough to cast with.

I also had a go at some freehand.

These are he final model done.

  1. Very nice. Nothing says Engineer quite like a glowing hammer and lots of tech doo-dads! 😀

    I haven’t tried Blu-stuff yet, but that’s tempting me for Azazel’s August Challenge. Is it similar to Oyumaru? Would you recommend it for two-sided objects?

    1. Two sided objects if you use the liquid and cast with it floating will with. I mainly use it for single sided objects. You can do two parts and join them.

      1. Thanks! The object I have in mind is pretty thin, and it didn’t seem to work with the Oyamaru. I think I’ll give it a go with the liquid blu-stuff. I’m in the US, but is this the stuff you used?: https://blu-stuff.com

    2. I have insta-mold which i think is a similar deal to Blue Stuff. The trouble with 2 sided objects is pressing the mould together hard enough without deforming it.

      However i remember seeing an amazing tutorial on youtube usinging lego bricks to make a form for your mould. You make a walled well just bigger than the thing you want to mold, and then a press that is the same dimentions as the hole. The margin of error on lego bricks is microns so you get an amazingily uniform compression.

      I havent tried it yet but i keep meaning to, maybe i will try that for august too 😁…

      1. I tried the lego mold (don’t tell the kids!) with Oyamaru, but it turned out not too well. I find it’s really hard to judge the thickness and pressure that needs to be applied. I guess I could try a variety of things and post some end results on my blog. I’ll see if insta-mold is easier to get locally. Thanks!

  2. This is a great project and no one will appreciate what a good job you did on the head! Awesome man and im really pleased the airbrush is working for you.

    1. Thanks I do think the head is pretty close to me in real life. The airbrush has changed the way I feel about painting. It makes it so much easier to achieve the style I’m looking for. I love the power weapons although hammers are harder than swords

  3. Great green stuff hair and beard. Just like yours. I really like those moulds you’ve done and the idea to change the wolf head to a salamnder it a great one here. You’re certainly getting the hang of that airbrush, you’ve done a lovely transition on that hammer head. Great stuff.
