Honor Guard Update 4. www.jawaballsproductions.com






I am uploading 3 more pics. Here is my apoth, standard bearer and champion. The combat shield is at his feet. I am painting a unifying checker design on all 5 models, and will design a new banner for Dante with a checker on it to bring them all together. I dont know, but will probably do the lower legs of the power fist guy, or his fist itself... and on the last guy I will have to do one more part, maybe his legs and the fist on the 4th. I will post more pics of the jump pack checkers soon!

Indeed, the checkers were the first thing that caught my eye as well.

Nice job on them. I can't imagine trying to get them around the jetpack exhaust like you did.

Oddly enough checkering the shield was harder! The jump pack was symmetrical and allowed for an even number of 1/8" checks. I loosely laid out some guide marks, then painted in the blocks by hand. The shield has angled sides and also slopes up to the center from the edge. Making straight lines was impossible with a pencil, so I totally free handed them and ended up with a little left over on the left edge. That was just the first coat though, I will go back in today and more clearly define the blocks which should let me adjust the size a bit.

See, I never would have thought about that. I just figured the shield was a cakewalk because it was flat.

they keep geting better and better,

At least 4 hours per model. Just the jump pack checkers took at least 2. I had to work and rework those squares over and over to make them line up and be square. By the time they are done, I will have held each one in my hands actually working on them about 10 hours each.

Oh and that is why I don't sell my models! :) Lots of people ask why I dont. I would have to charge some one 200 dollars a figure to get back the time I put into them.
