I figured that I would share this for those that may have missed it in my Chaos Marine project log.
I've been working on building and converting my second squad of Chaos Marines. I plan on converting all 10 marines to make a unique squad.
Here's a how to, for making Marines who look like they are aiming before they shoot.
Here is what I've done so far, I started with the arms that hold the bolter at an upward angle. (high port is the military term IIRC)
I cut off both hands at the wrists
Then I drilled holes on the wrists and hands for pinning. Then I used some Hobbytac (basically thick sticky PVA) to hold the arms in place while I positioned the hands. I did the right hand fist, so I had the leveled position for the bolter in the right position before moving on to the left hand.
This is what the model looks like with a bolter set in position, before the green stuffing of the wrists.
Here is the green stuffed wrists. for the right hand I made it look like the soft armor of the hip and knee joints. For the left I just filled it in.
This is the completed Marine ready to be primed. I decided to give a nod to the days of Rogue Trader by adding the combat accessory to the bolter; I may do a few more on the other squad members.
I think it turned out pretty nice and it was really easy.
