Space Marine Libby on bike WIP

So rather than studying or working on my Tyranids yesterday I've been working on finishing up my Libby on a bike for a painting comp. Whilst the pictures aren't great due to me taking them at night (doh!) opinions would be great! Not the best with green stuff and still need to layer more for the warp stuff coming out of his hand. Any other thoughs what could be added to him? Thinking of adding a servo skull to the front of the bike and need to remodel the handles as the axe is in the way (joystick?) but the bike model as a whole seems front heavy atm. Ignore the paint job btw, bike is about 60% done but haven't smooth it out yet and Libby is obviously far from done.

I also did some more greenstuff work on the current T-Fex so he's looking a bit better though waiting for my Wayland order to see if I can buff him up with anything extra from the Carnifex sprue (and make some Tervigon plans). Will be posting some more substantial posts today rather than this willy nilly stuff unless I get caught up in painting/cleaning. You know me...^^

Nice start Kirbs...

Nice set of wheels, but how is he steering the thing??

And get studying!

What warp stuff?

Looks good.

With regards to the axe and handlebars: maybe it would look better with the axe down lower, in more of a "carrying" position? Just a thought.

Presumably the "warp fire" coming out of his hand.

@Chumb; what Puppy said.

@Puppy; tried that and it interferred with the other bike; might replace it with a staff but have no suitable staves atm.

In regards to steering; I'll chop the handlebars off and maybe make a joystick but otherwise will just say he drives it with his; I was going to paint an arrow keypad on the display screen so could say he uses that :P

Chumbalaya said...

I don't see the warp fire very well, would you care to take a pic of it?

AbusePuppy said...


You could also try having him "choke up" on the axe a bit, or attach it to the bike somewhere.

Oh shit, I just realized: you totally need to have him mind-steering that shit with his arms folded in front of him.

As I said on msn, never really been a fan of guys on a bike not holding on, but otherwise a really good model (and the paint job is coming along nicely too).

Kirby said...

It's like Puppy said, he's steering with hismind :P. I'll get you a better pic tomorrow Chumby. Updated the model today withsome more GS work and drilled the exhaust pips after search for about 15 mins for my 3mm drillbit. I then stand up...oh there it is. >.<.

Will see if I can paint it some more tomorrow, too.

In regards to axe; true to choking up. I think it'd be best if I could find a staff but knowing me I'll leave it as it is and worry about other gizmos. I agree the pose looks a bit wonky but it is resting on the the bike round the other side so could make sense...

Needs to hold on to his bike imo, hes not a White Scar! :D Looking good, but get working on those Nids damnit!
