Imperial Army Trooper

This is based on concept art in Rogue Trader (p163, if you've got a copy) It's got a fantastic '80s Dredd or Strontium Dog feel. I'm working on the helmet now and the off hand will be a power glove. The helmet needs more work with bigger ear muffs and some bulking out around the forehead. At the moment it's shape is a little too Buck Rogers and without the earpieces he looks as if he is wearing a watermelon! 

And a few progress shots.

Furious Northman Completed

I did the final bake on this bloke last night. I'm pretty happy with his musculature but the pose isn't right. It's too static and looks awkward. With the next sculpt -- in about a third of the way done so pictures soon-- I've played more attention to the armature and it is much better.

I feel like I'm beginning to get the feel for this sculpting game and have good idea of where and how to improve. I just need to make many, many more models to sharpen my skills. Stay tuned for more :-)
