Custom 40k Space marine

Postby animmortal » Tue Mar 04, 2014 2:12 am

Well its not castle so I couldnt post it in the custom castle section but here is my first attempt at a 40k space marine! please give some feedback and let me know what you think! Feedback helps improve! Read description!

Also for all the purist just know this figure started out as a toddler's chew toy! The helmet fits a standard lego head and the powerpack on the back is removable!

Not bad!I I really like it except for his big fist, it looks a little to big in proportion with the body. Other than that, nice!

its a powerfist, they are bigger, its a warhammer 40k thing, a powerfist is a large glove on the hand that can basically punch through walls or even tank armor. So the enlarged hand was intentionally built to be bigger, I can remove it when I want and put a regular lego hand in there.

Even though I'm purist, I can appreciate the work that was put into this. Nice job!

I think the detailing on the powerfist is very true (as much as it can be). I think this is a really good rendition of a space marine. I especially love the upper body armor. Have you tried tinkering with any lower body armor?

not yet schmidt, but Ive left it unfinished for now, I want it to keep full mobility and pose ability so , it seems like at this size such things as knee pads would be hard to get right but once I get some inspiration I might come back to it

This is pretty cool.
Really digging the powerfist, its great work. you need a gold aquila on the chest :-) I bet a bit of bitz would work.
My son and I are working on some Warhammer 40K space marines ourselves, but we are trying a few different ideas first. one of them being some 3d printing.

Thankyou all for the appreciation! Erathor thanks for checking out all my stuff! And I cant wait to see those 3d printed ideas if they ever come around! I wanted to go get some bits for this project but my spare money right now has other purposes. priorities :(
