Final colouring: Black, Silver and Red

So the usual (far too long) time has elapsed between posts, but we're now into the finishing phase.
Sparying the main body of the Space Marine Chainsword has given us a uniform black coating and now we're about to mask off parts of the sword and spray/paint on details.

The blood drop will obviously be red, but we're also going to add some scrollwork to the other side and black and yellow hazard strips to some parts.

The Teeth have now been sprayed again after having been given a coat of aluminium paint basecoat, this time to make them look a more metalic and slightly more muted/less shiney.
More muted but more realistically metalic-looking teeth

As you can see below we haven't been idle when not posting, and have a brand new workshop space for plastics and woods that's been added to our more metal-work orientated workshop. It's all systems go - more and final pics coming soon.

  1. You are obviously gifted with tools. Have you tried your hand at making a game table?

    1. We haven't yet, though it's a thought. Though we're currently focused on replicas, we're experienced at large scale engineering and small scale model making as well, so could do pretty much anything. As we're looking to do stuff on commission at the mo it'd be hard to go for, but it'd be great to do a 40K cityscape with overpass bridge or dockyyard/coast of Dystopian wars. just depends on what people want really :)

  2. Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

    1. It'll be at Mayhem - waiting for a few nice days to be able to give the final spray/finsh to to blood drop, danger dags, scroll work etc - hsve to colour the eagle on the pommel and finished the handel off as well :)
