Lots of Warhammer 40K props!
If you’re a follower here or at my Facebook page you’ll know I’ve been doing a few Warhammer 40K inspired Bolter guns lately. I love the 40K aesthetic, it inspires me no end. The Bolt Gun is the Volvo of sci-fi weaponry, “it’s boxy, but it’s good”. These are more foam builds, at present my favorite build material, it also means they’re great for cosplay and display because they look really heavy, but they’re not.
Like “Mass Effect”, “Fallout”, “Borderlands” and “Half Life”, the Warhammer 40K universe is full of beautifully designed weaponry. As an artist it’s hard not to be swept up and inspired to create something of similar ilk.
These have all been made for a Warhammer 40K fan and he’s been a joy to work with. There is something magical about working with another person who ignites your passion of the craft, someone who gets your mind ticking, I love that and I’ve loved these builds.
I’ll remember this lot both for the generosity of the commissioning party (he’s giving them away to his players!) and for how much fun they were, despite the stress most prop builds have at certain points.
And finally.. just for the sake of seeing them all from the differing angles…
That’s it, the first update for 2014. I’ve got lots of projects set for the first part of this year so I hope you’ll enjoy at least some of them and that they might inspire the artist in you, or if not feeling that artist.. why not inspire the artist in me and give me a job lol.
Till next time people… what do we say?! ….
DO GOOD THINGS!
