Hemble's Customs - Face of Death!!! P8 05/07/09

Post by hemble on Thu Sep 11, 2008 3:25 pm

X-WING PILOT 12 inch

I've decide to make this figure after I found all the pieces I needed in my bits box's. This small vignette depicts an X-wing pilot waiting for his fighter to be prepped so he can climb aboard so he can go on patrol. Once I got the figure into the pose I liked the head and all the equipment were painted using Vallejo, Reaper and Games Workshop paints.

RECIPE

Body, Head - Are from Dragon Models

Boots, Gloves - Are from Dragon Models, the boots are WW2 German officer boots and the gloves are from a modern day soldier.

Helmet, flight suit and life support reader - Are from Hasbro, the flight suit has been altered to give a snug fit and the helmet has had transfer added from Games Workshop. The life support reader has had the old flexible straps taken off and new ones added.

Helmet linning - Is from Dragon Models it has been altered and a microphone has been added using pieces from the bits box.

Holster, belt,and Pistol - Holster and belt are from Dragon Models an which have been altered from other belts etc, and the Pistol is from the old AMT Han Solo kit.

Base - The base has been cut from foamcore and has had balsa wood added to the bottom for strength. the small power units are old ink cartridges and the hoses are from an old printer cord cut to size. The base was painted to resemble a flight deck with dirt and oil stains added for realism.






PRE SANDTROOPER 12 inch

10 years after the destruction of the Jedi and the growing need for more Troopers in the galaxy, the Empire decided that it was time to expand there grib even further to the Outer Rim planets and set up garrisons on even the most hospitable planets and one of these planets was Tatooine.

Now with the garrison secured and fully operational the Empire knew that they needed new equipemant and uniforms to help the troops work better in these harsh enviroments so testing was done on a number of uniforms. So beagn the the trials to see what uniform would suite the troops in these harsh condition which would serve the Empire better.

RECIPE

Body - The whole body is from the ROTS Clone Trooper figure from Hasbro, The helmet has been altered by adding a small comms arieal and a monitoring device. The visor has been puttied up to give the visor a Stormtrooper feel to it.

Equipement - The backpack is from and old Final Fantasy figure cut and added and the breathing tubes are thick robe superglued and then painted. The rifle is a modified WW2 German Paratrooper rifle with simple modifications added to it. The pouches are from the bits box and are from WW1 and modern day figures. The cloaks.robes are some left over material and the pants are from an old WW2 German DAK figure.

Base - The base has been cut from foamcore and has had cardboard added to both sides for strength, a mix of plaster of paris, fine sand and kitty litter was added. The base was then painted and dry brushed to the desired effect.

Hi All

Here are some more older figures/dio's eenjoy .

CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW 12"

I've always wanted to Sparrow ever since I saw POTC but could never find a good sculpt of him, then I saw a POTC Sparrow produced by a company called Zizzle. The figure was very cheap as it was a mass produced figure the clothing and head sculpt needed work but nothing to hard to fix up. Once the figure and base were completed they were painted using Vallejo, Reaper and GW paints.

RECIPE

1: Body, head & hands - The body is from Dragon, the head is from Zizzle and the hands are from BBI, The head was stripped of the old paint and repainted as were the hands. The rings on the fingers are from the old Zizzle hands I cut them off and put them on the BBI hands.

2: Uniform and euipment - Are all from Zizzle except the pants which are Dragon, the clothing as been boiled in fabric softner and a 1/4 teaspoon of bleach and once dry have been altered to fit the smaller Dragon body.

The sword has had it's blade replaced with a blade cut and shaped from plasticard and the pistol had been repainted.

3: Base and Gold - the base is a 7" Disney Indiana Jones base I used sculpty to cover over the stone blocks and made rocks/boulders, it was then covered in model railway static grass and fine sand and the plants are plastic fish tank plants. The whole base was painted using Vallejo Paints.

The Loot is some old chain I had in the bits box and the coins are WW2 1/6 scale buttons sanded down and then painted to look like tarnished gold, the bag has been made using a old 1/6 pair of pants cut and sewn together.

INDIANA JONES 7" THE DESCENT

While on an expedition in the South American Jungle Indaina Jones discover a cavern with ancient ruins inside, He quickly grabs a rope and starts the DESCENT down to discover what treasures and mysteries can be found.

This was a really fun dio to make as it didn't have to do with anything from the movies so I could make what I wanted. Once the dio and figure were built and puttied they were painted using Vallejo, Repaer and Games Workshop paints.

I wanted to give this diorama a feeling that Indy is climbing down the rope but I also wanted to add depth by adding different levels such as the columns and stones being different levels, and making the rope hang in mid air as if it's tied to something and amking it longer then the column.

To simulate Indy decsending down the rope while in mid air I drilled a hole in the column and in Indy's leg and cut some coat hanger wire and inserted it both into both.

RECIPE

1: The figure and base - The figure/base are from Disney's 7" line the figures joints have been superglued and then sculpty clay used to fill in the gaps. It was the repainted and hand from a 7" Star Trek figure were replaced with the original hands.

The base has had an extra column added by cutting of the top and then gluing another one on top, the part that was cut off was added to the base. The stone blocks have been put into place then an axtra smal stone block was added and placed on top of one if the buried stone blocks.

The plants are a combination of plastic fish tank plants which have been drybrushed, lichen moss which a got from a craft store and model railway shrubs from woodland scenics. The dirt is fine sand reapainted and dry brushed, The bones are from some dinosaurs kits I had in my bits box.

Hi All

Just a simple dio I put together so enjoy and LMK what you think.

When the command for ORDER 66 was announced not all Jedi were lucky to escape or even try to defend themselves against the Clones they once trusted. But for one Jedi Master named Kalhat Tolmare he was one of the lucky one's fortunate enough to have only a small section of Clones under is command.

While on the marsh planet of Belrhys looking for a small enemy outpost ORDER 66 was set in place, Lucky for Tolmare his quick reflexes had put an end to the Clones deceit.

So after SURVIVING ORDER 66 Kalhat Talmare flees the planet Belrhys and recieves the message that Obi Wan has transmitted and goes into hiding. To this day no one knows where Talmare is or even if he is still alive...

RECIPE

Body, Hands - The body and hands are both from Dragon Models 12" figures.

Head - The head is from Frontline Heads, It's Kurt Russel as Wyatt Earp but once I saw it I knew straight away that it would make a great looking Jedi.

Clothing, Saber - The clothing, saber and belt are all from Hasbro the jacket has been dyed a dark brown which was a tan brown colour originally.

Base - The base has been cut from foamcore and has had balsa wood added to the bottom for strength. The Marsh affect was achieved by painting the base in different greens and then plaster of paris was added with different green paints mixed thru that.

The weeds added which is just lichen moss grounded up and sprinkled over the base then woodland scenics water affects was poured over the top of that.

After the ordeal with the Ewoks Solo and Skywalker organise a plan to take down the shield that protects the second Death Star. For this plan to work they rely on Rebel Sniper ( Ronjul Rerdon) to take up a position that will allow him to take out key personal.

On recieving his task Rerdon positions himself 200 metre's east of the shield bunker behind a fallen tree stump, here he can take out any Imperial that he sees fit without Compromising his position.

RECIPE

Body, Hands and Head - Are all from a Dragon Models 12" figure, I replaced it with the Sideshow body as I like the Dragon bodies better for Diorama purposes.

Clothing and Equipment - Are all from Sideshows Rebel Commando figure, except the belt and holster which is from a modern soldier figure, the mesh around the neck and sniper rifle are from a WW2 Aussie Digger figure, and the gaiters are from a WW2 German soldier.

Sniper Rifle - Is from the Rebel commando figure it has been modified by adding a longer barrel using plastic tubing, the scope has been lengthened by adding another scope from a Dragon Model rifle.

Base - The base is foam core with thick cardboard added for strength, the ground work is a mixer of plaster of Paris, kitty litter, fine sand and static railway grass. The mixer was watered down and placed and spread over the base. The fallen tree stump I picked up out of the back yard, the shrubs are from woodland scenic's and the taller plants are plastic fish tank plants.

Hi All

After retrieving the Golden idol from it's pedestal Indy turn's with relief, Now all he has to do is get out of the Chachapoyan temple and he's home scott free. But before he even takes a step he hears a rumbling sound and then the walls and ceiling start to collapse.

Indy leaps from the steps forgetting the pressure pads and the darts that will surely exit there resting place and try to hit him, ESACPING THE TEMPLE is Indy's only concern.

Once I got the desired pose on the figure I used Vallejo and Games Workshop paints to repaint and drybrush the figure and base.

RECIPE

1: Head & Fedora - Are both both from The frontline custom heads this is the new head and fedora.

2: Body & Hands - The body is from Dragon and the hands are from Sideshow toys.

3: Shirt, Pants & Bag - Are from the Relic Hunter figure.

4: Boots, Holster Belt - Are from Dragon

5: Whip, Holster - These are all hand made using left over pieces of leather.

6: Jacket - The jacket is from a Dragon WW2 German fighter pilot, it has has it's insignia taken off and then pockets and side pull straps added.

7: Base - The base I got from a craft shop, the stone floor has been scribed using a model knife and sribing tool. The stone pressure pads are pieces of cardboard cut out and glued on the base, Then plaster of paris was used and dabbed on to simulate stone. The fine sand and foliage are from woodland scenics.

I remember seeing some of your dios for sale along time ago at the Parra Fair and was in awe of them then, You have come so far with them now.

Your dios have given me that direction in my own, that I need the grittiness and the actual depth through paint and airbrushing etc that my simple two week dio I was posting has now blown out to being finished one day.....

Hi All

I watched The Last Crusade the other night and when the scene came on when Indy swings off the Coronado and ends up in the drink I new that I had to give this scene a go. The scene isn't 100% accurate but I was extremely happy with the way it turned out especially never doing an ocean diorama before.

RECIPE

1: Figure, Cross of Coronado & Life saver - The indy figure is from Hasbro it's the ROTLA series 1 figure the one with the huge holster. I cut him off at the waist and put him in the pose I wanted and then puttied him up using Games Workshops Greenstuff.

The life preserver is from a babies rattle I cut off the end of the rattle and cut out the inner section and then glued the two ends together. I then added string around the edges using thin string, the writing is from some transfers which you rub on with a pencil.

The Cross of Coronado is from Hasbro's Young Indy, I just cut it off and placed in Indy's hand and added a small chain from the bits box. The white hat is from a Indy figure which I just cut out a small section on the front left hand side and then painted it white.

2: The CORONADO - is made from cardboard cut to the desired shaped and glued togther using superglue, the holes in the Stern section were traced drawn on then cut out.

I decided to give the stern a few holes made by explosions I did this by just cutting a cross into the cardboard and pulling the cardboard forward.

The flames are from an old Human Torch figure which I've had lying around and the smoke is some fake Halloween spiderwebs, I sprayed them slightly and then pulled them apart and glued inplace using PVA glue.
The writing was done by writing on the hull with a pencil then using the pencil as a guide painted over that.

3: Water - The water is made from plaster of paris, I let it dry a little and then used a large hard bristle brush to simulate the bubbling affect around the hull.
I then used a spoon to simulate waves, I did this by putting the teaspoon into water then pushing into the drying plaster and gave it a slight push to get the affect I wanted.

I then painted the water using a dark green and let it dry then using a watered down two part mix of dark green and light green gave the whole base a wash of this mixture. Once the paint dried I used Matt white and dry brushed the bubbling area's and the waves.

That's certainly some devotion to the craft (and it shows)...I tend to get in my painting room once a month for a day or so but I really need to spend some more regular time doing things other than tv and the net...same goes for my garden too....the list is endless
