Hey guys! I hope this is the right thread...

SO ANYWAYS... I've been on dakka for a while posting stuff and painting stuff, you know, the normal stuff, until one day epic caught my attention. Now seeing as I'm a cheap mofo, I dont wanna BUY an army, especially seeing as some of the skitarii (the army I intend to play) are a bit off in terms of proxies. Of course you have your troublemaker cybershadows, which I very well may use, but I feel like I needed something more. So I decided to start sculpting. In 6mm. Now seeing as I have my pics thus far already posted on dakka, I will just add my pics there and post them on both forums, if that works.

Without further ado: Cacty's attempts at scratchbuilding so far!

So this was my first attempt at a hypaspist, and quite frankly it's bad, but I think I've come a long way over these couple of weeks. So I decided to put hypaspists on hold and start making secutors (or magos, I havent decided what he is yet)

Looks like a good start, very characterful. I look forward to seeing more!

I would add a top to the staff, or file down the snipped edge of the wire to make it flat. Can't see the detail of the other arm in that picture.

The head is quite large, but some of that is personal preference. A smaller head would be more realistic, larger is more characterful.

If you do more than skitarii you will need a more advanced armature, but that looks like a really good way to do them.

Oh yea, about the staff. I'm either going with a cog on top or a classic admech cog axe. And about the head, he's actually extremely hunched, quite similarly to the new 28mm cultmech techpriest, and the pic just makes him looked a bit stumpy. Also: Gasmask.

Ok, so I've started work on another secutor. Which is what I guess these guys will be.

So I've gotten started on a second secutor. I may have a second plog for my Sons of Malice coming up soon because basing is hard with literally the two most opposite colors. ANYWAYS...
