Space Marines / Re: Chaplain Build, Black Templar
« Last post by doomfist on April 22, 2018, 12:05:28 PM »
Thank you!  The base is all various thicknesses of EVA foam.  The skull / torso device is 3D printed, the rivets are regular metal craft rivets, the filigree is a combo of hot glue molds, plastic 3D craft stickers and puffy fabric paint for t-shirts.  The base paint is rattle can gold spray paint and Gold PlastiDip Metalizer.  It gives it that two-tone gold metal look.  The weathering is done with a base of black metallic acrylic paint brushed into the crevices and back splashes. After that I hit with a combo of black and brown liquid shoe polishes applied with a painting sponge, I highlight the edges with Testors Gold Model paint the same way you would dry brush sliver paint onto your guns to make them look weathered.  Then I hit it the gold parts with triple thick clear enamel, and the black base armor bits with matte finish enamel.  No air brushing yet, when it's all done I might hit with an airbrush if needed.

Are all the details made out of foam ? Plus, how are you painting everything ? Airbrush ? Because the detail both on the armor and on the paint are amaizing !

Got the right arm and gauntlet painted, nothing is permanently attached yet, it's just pined to the arm and the skeleton arch is attached with painters tape just so I can get a feel of how it will look.  I also got the base colors on left pauldron, (the one that will have the Black Templar cross on it).  It's just the base paint, the gold I will weather and age like the gauntlets and the white is just the plasti dip base for the Navajo White colored paint I will end up painting it with.  You can see the can behind the pauldron.

Thanks! Sounds like foam would be extremely complicated - but given the sheer size of some of the pieces it seems unavoidable. I also still need to figure out the issue with the shoulder pads, so if anyone could just let me know if my proposed solution would work or if there is some other method I should consider that would be great!

Foam requires some special considerations. The three big ones are that you will not need to make all of the cuts the Pepakura fold out tells you do, the foam bends well and holds it's shape so you just kind of have to eye it a bit bend it in places where Pepakura wants you to cut and rejoin.

The second is that for large pieces when cut flat the foam will match your printed template but once you bend it to turn it into a 3D shape, a leg piece for instance the foam will actually be larger than you want it, you need to keep the paper template, cut out the foam, then bend the foam into the shape it will be in and then lay the paper template over it to see how much more you need to trim the foam by. If you don't do this some pieces will end up larger than what you want, it may not be a big deal but for larger pieces, upper leg for instance it makes a significant difference. 

Third you need to account for the thickness of the foam when joining two pieces together, the Pepakura files assume paper but if you're using 1/4 inch foam you could find that depending on how the joint comes together whatever you built ends up 1/4-1/2 thicker than it should be.

For larger areas I would recommend 5/8-1/2 inch foam, that will hold it's shape well, 1/4 inch will likely work also but I wouldn't go below that.
