Title: Blood Angels Deathwatch Captain
Post by: lemartes01 on January 12, 2018, 07:41:21 AM
Hello all! First at all, sorry for my rusty english...it´s not my mother tongue, as some may have realized ;) . Today i want to present some Wip-Pics and a walkthrough of my first Space Marine building. Enjoy  :)
Step 1: The Helmet
I made the helmet out of Pepakura, then used epoxy directly on the paper. After drying process i added 2 layers of fibre glass matts and again epoxy over it.
Then filler, primer, Plastidip and matte black. Faceshield is made of foam, lenses made out of old sunglasses.

I also added a voicescrambler, a small speaker and a small vent to the helmet, all powered by integrated battery packs.

Step 2: The Breastplate
The breastplate is reinforced with aluminum pipes. Shouldermounts made of funiture-rolls. The shoulder-section of the breastplate is also reinforced with 2mm aluminum sheets.

St3p 3: The diaper
The diaper is reinforced with 2mm aluminum sheet between the legs (saves also the coconuts ;) ). Strapping is made with 5cm straps and glued to the foam with hot glue. Works perfect.

Step 4: The Legs
The connectors of the legs are selfmade with 2mm aluminum sheets. Piping between tigh and lower leg was made of aluminum flexi-pipes.
Connectors between tigh and diaper was made with 2cm-straps and this click-shutters.

Step 6: The Backpack
Backpack skulls are resin, the eyes are red glass nuggets. It has an integrated vent with battery pack for cool down the wearers body.

Step 7: The Boots
As i dislike to use stilts i made some kinda step-in-system made of wood. The sole of the SM-boot is plywood, then on the outside 2 layers of foam (1cm), inside 1 layer of foam (1cm) and the step-in sytem, that is screwd down to the main sole.

Gorgeous. 

I like your backpack. Did you freehand it or do you have a pattern (and if so can I get a copy please).  I don't like the current pattern I am working through.
