Space Marines / Re: Thurgan: White Scars Primaris Lieutenant
« Last post by ViolentDream on November 27, 2018, 12:54:38 PM »
This is awesome.  I'm so happy to see another White Scar out there.  I'm really interested in the linkage you have done for the power fist.  I would love to get more details about it.  If you could pop me a line sometime @drakmarsfoundry that would be awesome. 

I do have a question about your backstory.  He would be old.. over 10,000 years old wouldn't he?

Hey brother. To start you off on the right path to creating linkage hands, this guy's work is a major inspiration.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5esgGyF3_Q

I based my custom design on what he did with his hand. Build tutorials on his facebook page in the comments section.

As for Thurgan's age...yes, he's about that old. There have been a number of debates as to Space Marine's lifespan, and Black Library and their content has been pretty vague about it. Depends on the author really...guys like Dan Abnett just make Space Marines cool especially in battle, but never really go into their age or if they die of old age. Nick Kyme, however, has written a story of a Salamander that's about 10,000 years old. Chaos SM in the Eye have also been known to be over 10,000 years old.

Following the rule of cool, though, which is the underlying theme for anything unexplainable in the WH40k universe, Thurgan inexplicably has not been killed yet. Thurgan's just this awesome old grandpa who's seen it all and has been wise and agile enough not to die in battle. Speed is his game, and none have caught up to him up to this day.

Though my intent on why he's still alive all these centuries is...he is that old dog who's just waiting for his friend and master before he dons his old collar to welcome him and eventually, before passing on. Heck, he might just as well die with a smile on his face just upon seeing the Warhawk's return.

Research I made before deciding on his age:

For the Khaaaan!!!

wow, this is off to an awesome start!

damn, as much as speed is discussed, suddenly hindered by work and family obligations. I did finish the helmet after 3 tries though. Posting about it soon.

++ UPDATE 02 ++

Chest in now completely assembled




A cool colleague at my internship place has helped me applying rondo and fiberglass to the inside of the armour , because he has a lot more experience working with those stuff than i have :)
If you're into pepakura and stuff , you know by now what fiberglass is , but if you've never heard of Rondo , well , it's basically a 50/50 mixture of Resin and Bondo .
It's essentially more liquid than Bondo , and more solid that Resin , it sort of self levels when you pour it into a pep model , but don't hesitate to brush it down with acetone to smooth it out .
+ Warning +
Rondo WILL seep out of any hole in your model , bear that in mind .



The back has been reinforced with fiberglass on top of the Rondo , front part will follow



I think the model is still fairly symmetrical , but it has definitely warped a little in some place , which was expected . Never hesitate to reinforce your pepakura model with strips of cardboard in openings and large flat area to avoid warping . And unless you want to waste money and time , make sure you initially build your stuff with cardstock , bare minimum of 250g papers , more if you can . That's why i'm usually printing my patterns in printing shops , they can print on A3 and larger formats and straight on heavier grades of cardstock , while you will just jam your printer attempting to do it , or spend afternoons re-tracing all your patterns on thicker paper .

++ UPDATE ++

So , i've been reading a lot of of " Only War " rule books this Week End to prepare my very first RPG Campaign after our previous DM ditched us in the middle of a " Wrath & Glory " campaign , and damn , got me all pumped to keep working on my Pep :P



All pieces for the chest are now cut



Laid out on my humble working table , ready for the build !



Chest in now roughly 75% finished , some three quarters of the back is still missing . It looks awfully small , so i might have to make two vertical cuts on each side of the chest and add a strip to widen the armour , and enlarge the back in the middle . I'll have to check once the armour is built , i trust my measuring techniques .
The shoulder bridges will have to be cut somewhere in order to allow my head to go through . And it'll be easier for transport too .

Heya !

So , now that i have a little free time on my hands , i decided to start working on a costume i've been wanting to tackle for ages : a simple Guardsman ! :D
I'm currently tired of building a crap ton of Star Wars kits and i want something else for Conventions , both local and abroad , and given my current grim dark mood , a Guardsman is the perfect choice . I'm doing a Cadian not only because it's the most iconic regiment out there , but also because i really love Cadians , especially since the fall of Cadia .
I'll probably work on a Tanith Scout afterwards , using the same files .

Said files are up there in the library , they're mine .
I scaled them to my size and exported them in PDF format to print in a store , saving me the trouble of having to re-trace all the patterns on thick paper . I just prefer to pay a dozen or so euros and get everything printed on cardstock straight away , something like 250-300g paper .

Going for the good old Pepakura / resin / fiberglass route . I prefer that to squishy foam that might get damaged if i decide to bring the costume abroad .


So , first step , always measure and re-scale the file you use . ALWAYS SCALE BEFORE PRINTING . Especially since mine has random scales on the pieces and was globally scaled for someone my size , so someone fairly small . If your pepakura is too small , blame yourself for not double-checking the scale , not my files ;)



And so it begins , the endless process of cutting pieces on at a time .




I hope i can post regular updates on this one and finish it by December or so , or College will get in the way again .

How big is this large data source? How much data can I get because I suspect that this large content has deleted the database?

This site is considered to be extremely informative, but I would like to know if these data are deleted and why.
