I am attempting to make a captain tycho for my bf's bday next week. this is my first attempt at kitbashing/green stuffing anything soooo i'm a total noob. any tips/comments you have would be awesome! also any advice on how to green stuff the mask that covers half is face would be wonderful...im having trouble getting it right. thanks guys Smile

Legs/chest- sanguinary guard
backpack- death company
Melta combi- bashed with melta +bolter
Head- tactical marine
Arms- multiple bits from DC & assault squads

Looks great! The combi melter looks a bit top heavy though, if you added the shoulder bit from a plasma gun onto the back it might balance it out and look a bit more ornate/relicy

To get the purity seals on the left arm I think it will be important how you mix the greenstuff. I can't remember which one but if you add more of the yellow then the blue (or vice versa) it makes the putty more rigid which might be useful if trying to make long thin purity seals, for the actual seal start with a small ball of putty a little smaller then the size you wanted and place where you want it, poke a paperclip end into the middle and then with a fine knife or the edge of something make 4 divots around the edges to give it that waxy look.
As a general bit of advice make sure to keep your hands wet and your putty wet when moulding it. If you have dry hands it will dry the putty out very quickly and ruin your sculpting!

Thank you the advice especially in regards to working with the green stuff! I am unsure what you mean by the shoulder bit though...is it a strap?

I think he means the stock of the plasma gun.

as for the model, it looks great. Personally I would choose the first backpack, as he is a captain afterall, and the iron halo fits. As for any suggestions Im not a fan of the head, but then again I dont like any non-helmeted marines anyway Razz

Oooh okay! That would make sense. It won't look so top heavy then.

Yeaa I feel ya on the head, but it wouldn't very "Tychoesque" if he was wearing a helmet. Hopefully once I make the mask it'll look better.

Sorry for the unspecific post! Yeah i meant the stock... couldn't think of the correct word!
Would a reaver head just make this model to cool Razz Kidding but if your really serious about a decent face with expressions look at GW mordheim models- some really cool and unique faces there!

Haha thanks, yeah some of the faces from the "specialist" games are a bit more interesting, less buzz lightyearish! Problem is that they are metal kits so you woud have to be willing to cut them off which would be hard!
